After finally finishing the Fall 2008 Lineup post, I’ve decided to unwind and relax for the remaining days of Summer vacation. It’s 16 days before Orientation and though it sounds like I have a lot of time left on my hands it’s really really not all that much. The days are passing me by at extreme speed and I’m just sitting at my desk doing absolutely nothing.
So what have I been doing lately? … well, I haven’t been doing what I teenager my age should be doing (namely, going out with friends and basking in the beautiful sun). Actually, it’s been probably two weeks since I last actually did something (Otakuthon) … and those two weeks of doing nothing passed me by without notice. I could only imagine how fast sixteen days will pass. So, instead of enjoying summer I imprisoned myself in my room catching up to Anime, reading the Manga I wanted to read and playing the games I want to play.
I finally caught up to everything. Thank goodness for popcorn it made the screen-staring much more bearable. At this point, I’m only behind with Soul Eater and Zero no Tsukaima. Ugh, watching 12 shows at the same time isn’t really doing me any good. I’m thinking of dropping World Destruction, Zero no Tsukaima and Nogizaka Haruka since I’m not watching those with any visible vigor. I’ve already lost all hope in Zero being interesting. I’m tired of hearing “kuma” a hundred times in each episode of World Destruction. And I can get my “Aww, so cute!” from other places than Nogizaka.
The only Manga I’m really steadily following is Mistress Fortune and TRC. But seriously, TRC is dragging on and on. Is it really necessary to drag it out so much? Geebus, you’re killing me CLAMP. Anyways, in my remaining free days, I’m going to attempt to read all the Manga I’ve been meaning to read. Namely, Special A, Shugo Chara, Nabari no Ou and Amatsuki. The only reason I haven’t been getting anywhere is because I don’t particularly enjoy reading Manga on the computer. My eyes start hurting after five chapters unless it’s really interesting. The last time I sat down to read massive amount of Manga on the computer was when I read a 100 chapters of Skip Beat!. I prefer buying Manga but I’m poor and the bookstores here don’t have a nice directory. (Marche Clandestin is a good place but it’s way far)
(On another note: I’m desperate for more chapters of Kuroshitsuji. My interest in it has just fucking increased after reading the first five chapters. It seems like Sebastian’s a demon that made a contract with Ciel to serve him forever. I don’t even care about how Ciel can Geass Sebastian. This manga’s awesome.)
I’m still on Kyou’s route in CLANNAD. In the spot right after Tomoya says he prefers long hair. Ha! Take that Ryou. =/ I ran into Hiiragi sometime before that and boy was I happy to see a cute guy. I can’t wait to play his route. He’s just so cute.
I also found the time to install Silver Chaos and played it for like … fifteen hours straight. I probably played through 80% of the game at this point. I’m going to review it (along with the fanbox and Drama CD) once I finish the game completely.
Nothing much. I just cleaned up the links on my Blogroll.
