I was going to do this post way sooner, but I was busy with a lot of stuff in RL. Plus, I haven’t been home in four days. I’m glad to be back at my desk sitting in front of Set-chan. (I never mentionned I named my comp did I?)
Well, the only really important thing is that I probably won’t be posting until August. Why? First of all, summer school. Second of all, Otakuthon.
No I didn’t accidentally add “uth” to Otakon. Just in case anyone was thinking that. I don’t blame you if you did. I doubt there are much people out of Québec who know about this anime convention (which happens in Montreal, if anyone cares).
Anyways, this is a shoutout to anyone else who might be going to the con. Let me know you exist. It’d be nice to know. (I doubt anyone out of my social circle in MTL knows about this place though)
Basically, I don’t have the resources to go to the states to go to AX or Otakon or whatever big fancy convention. It’s enough for me that there’s even an anime convention in the close proximity. After all, it’s about a half hour trip by public transport and, not-so-ironically in Chinatown.
It’s going to be my second time going to a convention but I think I’ll count it as my first purely because I only walked around the exhibition hall last time. It didn’t cross my mind to actually walk into a panel. Plus, last time, a friend and I just went on a whim on a Sunday afternoon. A deciding factor in my going this year is Johnny Yong Bosch …
I’ll take pictures and stuff just to have something to post about afterwards.
(By the way, if by some slim chance you’re attending, I’ll just say that I’ll be cosplaying a Yuffie (very last minute, very makeshift, sort of crappy) on Saturday and as a not-so-loli looking loli on Friday. I’m debating over myself for Sunday.)
I watched it last Friday, so it’s been a while already. The initial excitement sort of faded already. Yeah, I’m human too. So stuff like that happens to me.
Not to get into a long rant or anything, I just want to say I was happy with the movie overall. Order of the Phoenix was such a gigantic disappointement to me that, I was almost expecting the worst for the sixth movie. Actually, I couldn’t get through the first half hour of the HP5. It hurt too much. Considering how the fifth book was my absolutely favorite.
Of course, I have my complaints about the movie. Then again, no movie is perfect, but I have to say they adapted it well enough to more or less cover the horror that was the 5th movie. I’m never getting over that.
Half-Blood Prince is my second-favorite book, but I’ll admit that I have an unfair reason to love it so much. A lot happens in the sixth book and it’s basically to prepare everything that is to happen in the final book. It felt it was tactical planning part of an upcoming battle. That’s my objective point of view.
But the fangirl inside me can’t hide the fact that I loved HBP purely becaues Harry was so obsessed with Draco. The movie sort of took that away, but replace it with a lot of stuff that pleased the fujoshi monster inside of me. Like Ron putting the moves on Harry and Snape harassing Draco in the hallways at night. (You can ignore this last line. Maybe I was the only one to see those scenes that way.)
What I loved about the book and what I loved about the movie are completely different things. And I have to say, I quite like the feeling. It’s like experiencing two completely different points of views of the same thing.Kind of like two worlds, y’know? (Maybe not)
I first read the book when it came out. I read it again last year when they announced HP6. I read it again two months ago when I saw the trailer. And finally, I read it again two days before I saw the movie. Needless to say, I know the book.
Book-wise; I loved Harry “stalking” Draco. I loved “Won-Won” and his pathetic confidence towards being Keeper for the Quidditch team. I loved Harry getting afraid off betraying Ron by liking Ginny and putting moves on her. I loved Dumbledore in all his glory. I loved Harry kissing Ginny in front of everyone. I loved Harry saying goodbye to Ginny …
Movie-wise? I loved how the movie split between being with Harry and being with Draco. I loved Harry when he took the Felix Felicis. I loved Ron when he was posessed by the love potion and fell off the couch. I loved Hermione making her feelings so obvious. I loved Lavender for being the obsessed, crazy, stalker character because that’s just damn hilarious. I loved Harry being his usual dorky self. I loved Snape telling Draco “I swore to protect you!” because it was more slashable than humanly possible.
I won’t talk about what I disliked or about my complaints. Why? Because everyone does that and I’m tired of being negative. Why can’t I talk about things I like for once instead of being bitchy and sarcastic?
I can’t wait for Deathly Hallows. I better get my epic fights. HP6 lacked one.
Technically, I’m following three Summer anime. Technically because I didn’t watch Umineko pass episode one. As for the other two, it’s Princess Lover and Bakemonogatari.
Don’t ask me why I’m watching Princess Lover. I don’t know. I’m enjoying it in some masochistic, twisted, sick way. (Yeeeah, I’m taking about that show where all the heroines look like existing characters)
Bakemonogatari is just mind-blowingly awesome. I’m not just saying this because Kamiya Hiroshi is in it for once. Then again, I love every anime this guy shows up in.
And just to refer to the above image, I still am obsessed with Hetalia. The Vash+imouto arc felt like wasted episodes but episode 26 was just wonderful. We should always have episodes about England. He’s a star and I love him with all my heart. (I often sell my soul to characters, but rarely my heart … which is more valuable of course)
(And yes, I’m still following Saki and FMA. I stopped after the third loop for Haruhi.)
If you stalk me on Twitter, you’ll know I was playing this game obsessively for a while now.
Now that I’m almost done, I’m scared of finishing it. I hate it when games come to end, but this the first time I’m really killing myself over it. It’d help if the PS2 and game were mine, but since it isn’t, this is all the more depressing. I borrowed both from a friend.
I’ll be posting a review about the game in short order. Probably.
Anyways, since I was finished Persona, I decided to get another game to entertain me afterwards. I’ve heard about SMT: Devil Survivor a while ago, but as soon as I heard of it, I wanted to buy it. I was so glad when it came out and even more glad that I managed to obtain it. (I sort of lack money)
I didn’t play much, but I love what I see so far. Like any other Megaten game I’ve seen and/or played, Devil Survivor is unique and engaging in every way.
I just felt like writing since I haven’t written in about three weeks. I’ve got a bunch of posts I want to write, but I’m getting blocks everytime I open up my dashboard.
