Aku no Hana

It has been a while I got this excited for an anime. In fact, I can't remember the last anime that got me all worked out like this. Needless to say, I think Aku no Hana is a very awesome anime. I definitely recommended it to everyone.

A Year Older: Again

It’s that day when I got another level up in life. I’m turning a year older again today. So many things have changed in a course of a year. I read what I wrote on my birthday last year and I almost choked with laughter at how ridiculous everything sounds.

Goodbye 2012 and Hallo 2013

So overall, year 2012 has indeed been kinder to me. I have achieved what I set out to achieve but most importantly, I unexpectedly found love which is easily the highlight of the year for me.

Light Writings: Love II

I need an outlet to express how I feel nowadays. To be honest, things are going too good for me at the moment to the point that I am sort of living in fear for I do not want these extremely good feelings, and the love I have for him to end. If all these are gone tomorrow, there is a big probability that I might lose sanity.

Light Writings: Crush II

Welp, looks like we are having this conversation again after so many years. Well 2 years and 3 months to be exact. The last time I wrote about my crush, I was in a different state of mind where I know it can be nothing more than just that, a crush.

First Impression: Little Busters!

From the preview, Little Bastards, I mean Little Busters!, has nothing to offer me. It looks like another typical harem show which most of the time, I am not too fond of. The only reason why I'm curious about this show is the fact that it is produced by J.C. Staff. I have faith in them so lets hope the show won't be too shitty.

Well... after I have watched the first episode, I did not understand shit and I am not sure whether that is a good thing or not.

The plot is pretty random. Everyone seems to put Kyousuke, the "hero" so-to-say, on a pedestal. He with four others of his friends sort of live in their own world, where most of what they do were on Kyousuke's whim. They are not of the same age though. Kyousuke is the oldest and Rin, his sister is the youngest. Kyousuke is in his third year and will be leaving them soon so in order to do things together like they used to, Kyousuke suggested that they play baseball. Like I said, it's pretty random.

I am not gonna write anything bad about the arts and animation since after all, this is produced by J.C. Staff. They won't do a bad job at it. The character designs however is something that I am  familiar with. Kyousuke especially reminds me Otonashi from Angel Beats! Or is it just me? =\ 

The show surprises me in a way that I actually like Rin. I usually dislike arch-type character like her. If I have any complains, its the male seiyuus. I don't think any of the male seiyuus fit the characters that they voiced for. Kyousuke for example, sounds too... snobbish. I thought that it's kinda odd.

Little Busters isn't shitty but it isn't good either. Another average show in the history of anime. Not sure if I will watch this. Most probably I will end up downloading the episodes but won't watch it anytime soon, or be forever in my waiting list. Perhaps it would be more appealing if I read the visual novel...

Diary of a tard: Week 2, November 2012

I came across Spotted Flower by accident on twitter but once I clicked on that link, I can't stop reading it. It's about a newly wed otaku and his pregnant wife. Looks like his wife got him on the leash and she is horny all the time. It's an interesting take of how otaku men will react when given that kind of situation. He sure blushed a lot more than she did heh. She always tried forcing him to make love to her but he just can't, or rather not interested, since she's pregnant and all that. Well, I can't blame her. 9 months without sex can be suffering XD

this page got me hooked :w

Kyousogiga episode 3: Yase Youkai ain't exactly as she looks. She has quite a temper and will turn into a monster whenever something displeased her. This episode is sorta all over the place. It's about Station Opening where all things that are no longer needed will drifted away to who-knows-where. It is also sort of an introduction to the youkai's world in general.

Bleach: Chapter 500

It has been more than 3 months since I last read Bleach. I have forgotten why I stopped reading it but mostly, and probably because I got sick at how ridiculous Tite Kubo was at that time. I hope shit gets better now though. Then again, I can never leave Bleach for too long. I love the series regardless.

In previous chapter, we all know that Ichigo is trapped in the cage but Soul Society was too excited with the news that he's coming, they didn't realize this until after they announced over Soul Society that he's coming and the fact that his bankai can't be stolen by the Quincy.

As they were trying to send rescue team to find Ichigo, Jindanbou came and attacked the 12th Division lab.

It was chaos as they were killing each other.

And it was torture for Ichigo since he can hear everyone but cannot respond to their cries for help.

But it seems like help is on its way as Opie got killed for real this time but it is still a mystery who did it and whether or not s/he on Soul Society side because it looks like Urahara is under attack too. I mean, if Urahara can't detect her/he, then surely he's good enough to rescue everyone, including Ichigo.

Kyousogiga episode 2: Everything is over the top with this episode. Shouko lost her remote control and sent all her troops all over town to find it. Lucky for her that Fushimi has installed a GPS tracking system on that remote and found it, but after she blew up half of the town though.

Sunday, November 11

I know I am gonna pretty much rage watching episode 4 of K. The fact that Kuroh is making bento for Yashiro is enough shit to start with. I want a badass show, not something gay like this. This episode pretty much focused on Yashiro trying to prove himself innocent by going around the campus to find an alibi. He did find one but after that, he found the bloody uniform he wore on the day of the crime. Okay... things are getting interesting now.

uh oh he's in trouble now...

Teekyuu episode 4: They all went to the pink haired girl house where they do some rather random things as usual only to find out in the end that it's not her house. LOL. Mean while in episode 5, they decided to practice some tennis but of course that's not what they were doing. It's alright though. That what makes this less-than-3-minutes show so enjoyable. I wish I have random girl friends like Yuri. Oh wait, I already have, but they are all males XD

Episode 2 of Lychee Light Club: they were trying to modify Lychee so it can performed other tasks but failed as each of them just give stupid suggestion though at the end, the van idea isn't bad at all. By this episode, it is clear we have a bunch of guys with different personality to amuse us, from a genius to gay to a masochist and everything in between. I keep expecting them to have an orgy LOL

Lychee Light Club episode 3: Suda proposed that they used Lychee as a sales tool since his uncle, a CEO of automotive company is interested to mass produced Lychee because of the greener technology (Zera used lychee fruit as Lychee's fuel). When the CEO came to look at Lychee, it mistaken his bald head as the fruit and freaking eat him. Heh, there goes their plan of getting rich.

Light Writings: Love II

It has been a while since I write anything personal. I guess I just need an outlet to express how I feel nowadays. To be honest, things are going too good for me at the moment to the point that I am sort of living in fear for I do not want these extremely good feelings, and the love I have for him to end. If all these are gone tomorrow, there is a big probability that I might lose sanity.

I have always been better at expressing myself when I put it in writing. Writing is constant, real and something that I can rely on to when everything else fails. I hope I won't miss anything though. Then again, I can always write some more.

(c) TCB

Lets start by me telling you guys that this feels so new to me. I have been in relationships before, four to be exact in a span of more than 10 years. In average, each of my relationship lasted 4 years. It's a freaking long time, of which were not wasted as it made me grow as a person and made me appreciate what I feel and what I have right now even more.

I told you guys about my crush back in July. 4 months have gone by since then. I thought that my crushing on him will probably disappear as it did with my previous crush but instead I found myself just falling deeper for him as the days go by. Not that I am complaining... heh. I have also talked about love and what I think of it. It has changes slightly, how I feel, but in my opinion, those are extra added flavors to make it even more worthwhile.
In my previous relationships, it was always the guys who approached me, and they are all my bestfriends that ended up somehow as my jerks. Given my personality, I can understand why was it only those who are close to me ended up liking me because to be honest, I am someone that you might be having a hard time to understand. If you  asked me, I still have no idea what made them like me in the first place LOL.

The person that I thought I am in love with, well, turned out that was just me hallucinating. Or perhaps I did love him once but it sure didn't last. When he came back, I quickly realized that I have fallen totally out of love with him. There were nothing between us, we both know we won't make the other happy hence why I broke off the engagement few months before we were supposed to get married. I let everything go because in a way, I have found new love.

Or you can call it a crush if you want.  I don't particularly care. I know what I feel and that's all that matters.

In my previous post about love, I said that I don't get jealous. Well, not anymore and fuck I seriously hate that feeling. It is so fucking tiring. But as the Malay proverb goes, cemburu tandanya sayang (translation: jealousy is the sign of love), I guess it is sort of true. It's stupid though and I don't have any control over those feelings. I can however pretend that it doesn't affected me at all. Pretend is the key word because at the end of the day, it still hurts.

Karma is a bitch I guess. I often disregard my jerks when they said they were jealous XD

Friends who are close to me keep telling me how I have changed and I admit that indeed I have. It is something that I cannot control. I'm pretty much powerless. I am still me though. I just want to assure my friends that my resolves are not that weak.

Those friends know me as a socially awkward person. I hate people in general except for the special few who I regard as my friend. I preferred to stay in my room watching anime and reading books instead of hang out with my friends. 

Not anymore I don't. Part of it comes from my line of work but most of it because I enjoy the company I am with. I just have so much love to give that I feel it is a waste if I shy away from him. After all, I am the kind of person that take challenges by the horn. I just need to gather up my courage before I do that though.

Why the long wait? Well, I have to be sure and I have never been so sure in my entire life. Whenever I think about my future, he's in it and it makes me goes "FUCK GET OUT OF THE WAY!" LOL but it won't work. I can't imagine my life without him in it anymore. The fact that I now have hopes is not good. Hopes lead to expectations. Expectations lead to disappointment. Disappointment leads to fear. I am trying hard not to let all of these lead to suffering that spawn out of anger and hatred.

This might sounds like I'm putting so much pressure on him but like I said, love is supposed to be selfless and I still believe that. Love is something that you cannot force after all. Lets not forget that I am a big believer in fate as well :)

The reason why I am writing this post is simple. I feel vulnerable.

Me being me, I hate that.

Oh well, lets hope that this love story of mine has an incredible ending that isn't cliche.

To be continued...

First Impression: Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter

Lets be totally honest here. The only reason I'm checking this out is because this show is produced by A-1 Pictures otherwise I wouldn't be bothered at all. Mecha is just not something that is appealing to me especially since it looks like this show is targeted for children under the age of 12 >_>

This fanart can be so misleading and yet so appealing for pedophile
(c) Ama Mitsuki

My intuition was right though, this show is just ridiculously bad that I feel sorry for being an A-1 Pictures fan. It's about a city of AI cars where even kids can drive a car as long as they have their drivers ID. Then somehow later on in the episode, they have mecha fighting. I just don't get it and like I said, this shit is terribad.

Or maybe it wasn't. They just decided to use the Transformers idea and adapted it to become an anime because this is certainly what this show is all about. They just renamed it to Gyrozetter. Urgh, awful shit.

The pace of the story is all over the place and the use of CGI is too obvious for the car. It was messy from start to finish, from the arts to the story itself. I wonder how the fuck did A-1 Pictures agreed to produce this. Maybe Toyota, Nissan and other Japanese car manufacturers are sposnsoring this show though as they clearly used Prius and GTR cars as part of the show's characters, so they did it for money? If they are, I am terribly disappointed.

I'm dropping this and putting this away in the anishit pile.

Diary of a tard: Week 5, October 2012

Sunday, October 28

Episode 156 of Gintama started with the parody of MGM silent film focusing on Elizabeth who runs errand for Katsura, looking for Oedo store to buy him shampoo. It was meaningless as fuck, as expected of Gintama. Then the episode just gets weirder when Gintoki went to a whinery where you can complain all you want. Mayori Samurai, Gorilla and Pony-chan joined him later on and the dialogs are just superb. Even though we didn't see any of the said characters, it was brilliantly written that I don't even mind we didn't get to see Gintoki. In the end, we were being trolled. LOL

When there is Otsu, be sure that the episode will revolve around Sinpachi. Gintama episode 157: Sinpachi versus Toshi as Otsu's fan quit and join Hijikata (Toshi) fan club Tsusengumi instead where they are allowed to be fan of different faction. The fight to be Otsu official fan club starts now

Continuing from last episode of Gintama, the battle continues in episode 158. The Shinsegumi members are helping out Hijikata while Sinpachi has problem with Takachin who was knocked over by Okita. If one of their members give up, they will be disqualified from the battle and thus lost.

this picture has nothing to do with the content of this diary LOL

Teekyuu episode 2 and 3: The introduction of Nasuno, another hopeless basketcase and Marimo who is a pervert who is always looking for opportunity to eat Yuri's underwear LOL
