So… this is a like a giant/mass report on the last month pretty much. Everything thats happened and everything thats going to happen in the next few weeks. I think…
So, I’ll start off with the fact I’m back at uni :woop: Living in student digs free from the reign of the parentals! Exact same room as last year, one of the same roommates, but one went awol just after christmas, so we have a new one. Still assessing… might be a bit too chavvy/noisy for our liking :\
Course wise, you may not know I switched. From Animation Design to Graphic Design & Illustration. Just lots and lots and LOTS of drawing. Which is goooooooood. Takes up a fair amount of time, but thats cool. I’m managing to balance the education with the recreation. Skip below the cut to see what I’ve been up to .
And with that, onto the TV & Anime! TV wise… all the usual suspects… How I Met Your Mother, Glee, Fringe, Big Bang Theory, Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy, The Mentalist, Supernatural… in that order, Monday to Friday XD. Possibly Castle… am already 3 eps behind or so though. The Event looked… good… but I’ve only seen 2 eps. Obviously if I don’t feel like the urge to dl it at 3am in the morning, it can’t be that good.
Anime wise… I’m trying a few things this season. I definitely wanted to try Milky Holmes after seeing the 4 seiyuu’s at Hyper Japan(Oh yeah, more on that later XD), have ep 1 dl’d, just not watched it yet… I don’t think its meant to be great, but I kinda guessed that, it’s a magical girl series after all. Kinda generic. But its Sherlock Holmes related XD. Other anime I’m trying, Yosuga no Sora, Fortune Arterial, Star Driver, Ore No Imouto and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt(which I watched the first 5 mins of & switched to Star Driver XD), so doubt I’ll be continuing with it… I wanna try Kuragehime though. That looks awesomesauces. Squid Girl has been recommended to me also. I got Psychic Detective Yakumo ep 1 in stock, but ain’t watched it yet.
So far I’ve watched 2 eps of Oreimo, 1 of Yosuga no Sora, 1 of Fortune Arterial, 1 of Star Driver… and… thats it I think. Got ep 2 of Yosuga & Fortune ready to go though :3. I think Oreimo ep 3 is out, so can dl that too :3 Oreimo’s very cute. And its got Yuuichi Nakamura doing the lead male voice. Tomoya-kun <3 Love hearing voices I recognise. Makes me bond with the series XD
Hmm… what else… oh yeah, Hyper Japan. A con in London. All Japanese stuff. Food, drink, clothing, culture etc etc. Went with a friend, wouldn’t have even known it was happening unless he told me XD. I got me the Black Rock Shooter Nendoroid because I just couldn’t resist that damn cute face T-T AND I got the Black Rock Shooter phone straps. They were the most important thing. Ever since I saw them in the OVA I wanted em XD Glad they got made in real life :3 I got to see the cutesome seiyuu’s of Milky Holmes there too. They did two of the songs from the show too. So cute <3. I’m sure there are things I’m forgetting lol.
You can see more pics of the cute seiyuu of Milky Holmes on Danny’s post.
Other conventions… well there are a few coming up. Can talk bout them closer to the time. Though one thing I must flail about now! Seeing Benedict Cumberbatch on stage with a bunch of other awesome actor types in this ‘Children’s Monologues‘ thing on the 14th of November. Yes its like… over 3 weeks away. But OH-MY-GOD FLAIL!!!!!! We(me & my fellow Cumberbitches) were gutted when we realised we’d missed him on stage mere days after it’d finished. So finding out about this was epic luck. And we’re just 5 rows back from the front <3
There’s also the possibility of seeing JYJ in a showcase for their new album… but thats not set in stone yet. Hopefully if they broke the west it would pave the way for another kpop bands. Jpop too I’d hope. :3 (My friend Purplezest is a HUGE fan, so if you want more kpoppy stuff, go to her XD)
Oh! Movies! OMG OMG OMG I can’t believe I never did a post about Scott Pilgrim! T-T Totally in love with the movie. Loved the comics beforehand, so very glad the movie turned out awesome. I know it didn’t do as well in the box office, but its definitely got a cult following in the making . Shame more people didn’t see it though, twas so epic, wish I saw it a 5th time in the cinema, nice round number XD, feels better than 4… New movies… I’m looking forward to seeing RED. Looks awesome. Bruce Willis & Morgan Freeman? Heck yeah. Plus Karl Urban as well :3.
