Kicking things off again.

It's been quite awhile since I've posted anything. but an impending trip to Japan in less than 12 hours makes me just plain giddy with anticipation. There's the obligatory trip to Akihabara, Kyoto, and Miyajima planned. Along with a smattering of other wonderful things to do and see. The least of which is a projection event for Final Fantasy XIV in Yokohama ! Stay tuned for more to come!

Bleach 6th Ending - My Pace by Sunset Swish

This ending is one of my favorite j-pop songs. It has a catchy beat and the lyrics are uplifting, with a bit of sage like advice. Check out the lyrics on  they also have the youtube video showing the "Ofensu" instead of the earlier misinterpretation. EDIT: My English Translation. For those that have viewed this page in the past; yes, I did have the romaji posted up at one time. However, something on the page got me a warning. Not sure what, since it's been like 7 years since I posted this; but such is life, the lyrics are still traipsing along out there and a new link is up. Enjoy!

Random Post

Wow... it's been so long since I last posted. I think I'll start putting some commentary on a few the episodes that I've watched recently. I haven't really had time to get into any manga series in a while. I've been picking up Vasselord when I see a new volume at the local bookstore, but that's about it.

Vampire Knight Anime Thoughts

After watching the 6th episode of Vampire Knight, I was chatting with Kalinara on how this anime isn't as gay as some of the comments I've seen. I believe I'm fairly current with the manga series right now and I don't see anything yaoi-esque about it at least until around chapter 30 or so. The guys are all hot delicious bishis... does that make the show automatically in the category of yaoi? Let's see... most yaoi completely ignore women to the point they're a non-entity. Vampire Knight - central character is a girl having sexual tension with two guys. most yaoi have sex attempted in the first volume if not having sex in every chapter. Vampire Knight - Kaname the pureblood vampire and Zero the angsty newly awakened vampire hate each others guts and there appears to be no sex on the horizon for the two of them. The 'Night' class though full of bishi guys and girls, don't seem interested in having sex with each other. They're all too busy be

Wizard World Chicago

The last blast of my summer! and I'll talk about it tonight.

Superman Returns and Heroes Convention

I decided to post again, and realized that I had a couple of drafts saved that I never published... silly me ^_^'. Here are my thoughts from 7/1/06.... So, Kalinara and I are at Heroes Convention, since I'm no where near the fan of comics that she is, I competed in my first Magic tourney. We got into Charlotte yesterday morning and hit the floor. I surprised myself at how much The Amateur Challenge was fun, I got to meet a lot of players even though I finished last. I won two matches on technicalities. The first was because my opponent didn't show up, and the other was because I was the odd person out. That part really sucked because it was the last in the last match before the elimination rounds. There was one person that had bad luck with me in games and for about 3 matches we were sitting next to each other commenting on our horrid luck and we were expecting to be paired against each other in the final open match... twas not the case. But we ended up playing afte

Kiba Ep 10 Thoughts

After watching episode 10 of Kiba, I keep trashing at the bit for them to bring Noa and Zed together in the plot again. It's nice having the diverging plots, but there aren't enough people yet in the series to warrent it. I hope Rebecca can get out of that image she has with her people. And the glasses wearing guy (I always forget his name and he's like the main villain of the series so far.) Looks awesome. He reminds me a little of Noa though, which will be interesting if anything is there. I think I might hold on to this series, it's a kind of a mix between .Hack// and Yu-gi-oh with a bite.
