Hey there folks think I’m pretty overdue for an update here ^^;; Curious why the updates have dried up? Want to know what I’m up to? (well, normally i wouldn’t be so bold as to suggest people would actually be interested in that but hell, that’s one of the main reasons for twitter, no? ^^;;) Read on for some enlightenment and even some anime blabberings if that’s your cup of tea.
First things first let’s talk about updates… things have dropped off quite a bit this past month, even below my record low I had previously ^^; Biggest reason? Laziness. There, I admit it! Well, maybe not the biggest reason, but the most shameful ^^;
Next big reason is… well, if you’ve been monitoring my preorder list at tsukiboard… well, it’s lookin’ pretty dry lately ^^; The only new review I have pending at the moment in Selvaria, the other is the alternate color Sheryl… BRS anime version is in stock but I have her bundled to ship with dead master… ‘course that’s not to say i don’t have anything to post about. But if you’re here for the figures, then actually, yes, I have very little to post about at the moment ^^;;
Hoping some exciting stuff will come on the market soon. Lately I dunno but nothing’s really been tempting me like it has in the past. Even with Alter I just find myself holding out for slightly more epic 1/7 or greater releases (otherwise I would’ve been all over the railgun releases :P well… saten’s face looks weird to me too ^^;).
aaand finally there’s the distractions reason ^^;
As you can see I’ve been busy on the starcraft front, but actually the more consuming part has been following the pro scene. I actually haven’t been playing too much lately but I haven’t missed a single match in season 2 of the GSL Starcraft 2 tournament ^^; Love watching the epic play, learning about past brood war champions and watching new players come out of nowhere… highly recommended :3 If the korean scene’s not your thing, an exciting MLG season just wrapped up with Team Liquid dominating!
King’s Bounty has also been a huge distraction. Real cheap on Steam but man it packs a lotta game play. Think it took > 60 hours for me to complete the first one. (and damn it’s hard)
Steam had already been bleeding my wallet and spare time… forget if i already posted about it, but recettear (pictured above) took up another 32 hours. (sorry, no touhou characters in the actual game :P) I loved the concept and got more than my money’s worth for that one. Puzzle quest 2 I’ve logged 34 more hours…
and to top things off i started playing dragon age again ^^;;;; (only played through 1.5 characters ’til now)
oh whoops, almost forgot another huge reason… we were trying to schedule a fumigation for the house i live in for the longest time… and ‘cuz of that i was reluctant to unbox anything until the fumigation was done. Figures that it took almost 2 months to get the whole thing resolved, but yes, that’s finally over with so that’s no longer an excuse ^^;
Alrighty, at any rate that’s my long list of excuses. I’ve no intention of stopping so rest assured things will keep on rolling here at wawawawasuremono. Just, as I’m sure you’re used to by now, slower than before ^^; Thanks for continuing to stop by, これからも宜しくお願いします～
So then, against my better judgment I’ll keep this post going with a brief rundown of anime I’ve been catching up on lately (see, I haven’t been neglecting all of my akibakei hobbies ^^;)~
Finished up working!! some time ago now… gads, was that back in the summer? Loved pretty much all the characters and in my book that puts in firmly in the thumbs up category ^^ Slice of life lovers, this is highly recommended.
So I actually ordered Alter’s Selvaria without having seen or played Valkyria Chronicles. Fiiinally got around to seeing the anime (since I still don’t have a ps3 orz) and damn I really enjoyed this one too. Yes yes, I’ve heard the game is 1000 times better, so I will be sure to follow up with that someday ^^ But at any rate, here again, toootally loved the characters, Selvaria is so kick ass. No cutting corners for the drama in a war setting either (well, I’m trying to keep this spoiler free… but not to say this is better than the game, but compared to some of the other stuff i’ve seen recently, nicely done imo). Really solid, left me wanting more so I’m glad to hear the game has so much more to offer ^_^
Oh how could i forget. WTF SPOILERS in the 2nd OP???!?!? Not really sure why they did that orz. I mean, I had sorta suspected it by that point but I don’t think there was any strong evidence for it yet? meh. Anyhow…
Yeah, I’m really behind ^^; Tokyo Magnitude 8 I thought was ok. Glad they didn’t stretch the series out to 12 or more episodes… though even then I’m not sure I think the execution of the final episode(s?) was necessary… not bad, worth a try. I’ll have to discuss this (well, all of these ^^;;) in more depth later…
Baka to test to shoukanjyuu!! I already have a soft spot for love triangles… add in the okama kataomoi, the trap, an abusive couple, tsundere, a voice actress that sounds like chihiro (was surprised to find out it wasn’t the same ^^;)… would definitely watch more ^_^
yet another series with seitokai in the title. Yet another winner in my book ^^; Love the humor (slice of life with a bit more of an ecchi slant ^^; though this ain’t no yosuga no sora ^^;;). suzu and shino are probably my favorites ^^ Wouldn’t mind another season of this either :P
Also finishing up k-on!! while watching ore no imouto & ookami-san to shichinin no nakamatachi… enjoying all of those as well :3 Unfortunately none of these seem to lend themselves to epic figures! Well, guess we’ll see. Hopefully there’ll be some good releases/announcements as wonfes winter approaches~
Alrightythen, that’s all i got for now. またな～
