She lived a long 90 years and I was so happy when she said she appreciated my visits back when she was still aware enough, despite her being such a private person.
May she rest in peace...
On a happier note, happy birthday to shadow_wolfwind, modorenai and ketsune. And ssjup81's on the 6th, eruannatel, takatofan1986, and ffxgodhand on the 7th, lina_lau on the 8th, sapphireluna on the 10th... it goes on! On my f-list the month with the most birthdays is October like me \o/
In contrast with that, lots of anime blab gathered from the past couple days... ._o;
Currently timing the Jungle Emperor Leo (Kimba the White Lion) 2009 special, hoping to finish that by the end of the week!
The new stuff while it's still fresh:
Miracle Train ~Ooedo-sen e Youkoso~ - Ishida Akira as a dog. Same guys who did stuff like Kin'iro no Corda and Neo Angelique Abyss. I like the cast, and I do want to hear more KENN and the other cast, but not enough in these roles and not enough to keep up with a mediocre series like this. I also prefer KENN to be more fiesty XD; Dropping ^^;
Nyan Koi! - Fukuyama Jun as a cat. waaaaaa~~~
No comment about the plot itself, but I was pleasantly surprised with the animation flow and entertainment factor.
I fear that it might become riddled with cliche harem girl junk as more of the "main cast" appears, but I'll keep up with it for now.
Tegami Bachi (Letter Bee) - I likeeeee the Suga Shikao opening song. JunJun bishie is nice too. <3 I feel like it's been a really long time since I've seen JunJun in such a nice main position. Although I guess the shota's going to take over soon. Darn. XD; But I'll keep watching since he's still part of the main storyline.
Sacred Blacksmith - Main character's boob outlines are distracting. XDDD Other than that, I guess it's not bad... but I'm not interested in the cast much as it stands right now. I think in the past, I'd be terribly attracted to the main bish here, but eh, not with this series's atmosphere. Maybe it really just is the boobs. Dropping!! \o/
Yumeiro Patissiere - It's cute for now <3 ~ Might try keeping it for a few more eps just for the innocent cuteness, but if it doesn't keep my interest in more ways after that, it's going.
So that's about 3 out of 5 for now, and more later... There are a good 5 others or so right now that I won't even bother with already. XD;
Ridiculous amount of ecchi harem stuff this season. I thought Japan already hit the peak for that overproduction failplan. Oh well.
Inazuma Eleven 2 Kyoui no Shinryakusha Blizzard/Fire - Whyyyyyy did they pull a Pokemon on these. XD Oh well. I might end up playing through both versions anyway ^^;
I DO DO DO LIKE LIKE LIKE the addition of voiced cut scenes (the important ones) and lotssss of FMVs! NOJI-NIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.
Makes me want to catch up with watching the TV series raws that are lying around on my comp~ I shall, I shall!
I'd still complain that there hasn't been much change in the actual soccer playing and that ALL of the random battle 4-on-4's are EXTREMELY repetitive and tedious. Fortunately, the practice matches are available relatively early in the game, and those offer a better way to grind.
Tales of Vesperia 3 PS3 - uhh I think I should find some method to play the PS3 away from the home theatre system so that I'm not running off that projector lightbulb all the time. XD; I mean, it's AMAZING to watch it on a 7-foot long screen, but... overkill. o_o~~~ And I just realized my capture card won't work for it since it doesn't support HDTV. I only play a couple hours at a time and I've just gotten Rita to join. But eee Toriumi <3 ~
