Personal Blog For Jan. 1st 2018: Happy New Year!!!!

Let me start this off by saying Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great New Years Eve & are enjoying what’s left of your day. There have been some issues in 2017 I don’t wanna repeat, (the recent being smashing my foot last week, fracturing or spraining my baby toe because OI!!!) In 2018, I hope to do more in the anime circles. Do my best getting to cons, buy more anime stuff & review the shows I promised you all before getting newer series. Yes, I know streaming anime is a thing now, but I like buying my anime, I’m old school, sue me! :).

There are A LOT of items I MUST see too, but most of all, the new wheelchair issue. I fail to see why this new guy is holding this process up. Yes, the holidays happened, that I get, but the chair was picked months ago, but he needed to be out here with the therapist to discuss the needs that I have, but every time we call, he calls late or says he’ll show and doesn’t.

On the writing end of things. The book chapter and another work has been added to lately Either the gates open better when I’m reeeeeeeeeeaaaaally tired or I’m fighting sleep because most of the progress was done late at night. Plus, a new idea with new characters sparked in me a few weeks ago, but while it sounds good on paper, there are hitches that need to be fixed due to the fact that I don’t want it to sound like a rip off of a movie.

During my time away, almost all of the character details were transferred to my PC so when SC6 comes down the pipe, my characters can be remade on the new game. Remember the red haired bikini wearing Xiaoyu I made on Tekken 7? The character was created on SC5 & she looks great, close to what she looks like in 7. If you want to watch the match below and let me know! πŸ™‚

Personal Blog For December 2017

aki-updated

 

Sorry for going MIA again, but having to debate whether or not the new chair’s ordered & other things have been on my brain. Let’s start this on a positive note. Even though the Thanksgiving writing fest didn’t really take, some progress was made, which is good and I’ll show today in another post. In A Wife’s Wish, errors pointed out to me by a friend and my adopted bro were cleared up I hope.

Other news: Our female dog, who’s a sweetheart of a Pit Bull is messed up, a bit blind, way underweight etc. Yes, she eats well and everything, we just suspect the last litter took a toll on her, it is just sad to see her this way. My nephew wants to get her fixed and have a hysterectomy done so maybe it’ll clear some of the issues up, (and I hope it does, she’s an angel!) Adding a somewhat weird and dumb note to this. The therapist the doctors roped me into seeing to exercise me, which I’ll go into at a later date is scared SHITLESS of her that the guy won’t even come in the forking house unless she’s downstairs.

The first time he came, she was up here and sniffed him, making him flip out, saying where he’s from, stray dogs roam the area. β€œUm, A: She’s blind and harmless. And B: There’s a difference between dogs you see roaming and domesticated dogs!” but he left! Last week, 15 minutes was spent trying to convince the fool that the dog was downstairs, at that point I was about ready to yell at the guy because he would repeat the same thing! He got on me for the way I was sitting, I told him it was due to the chair and he was, β€œIts not the chair’s fault, you can sit better.” Okay, you try sitting better in this!

This Saturday & Sunday I’m planning to binge watch TRIGUN so a review can be written. Wanted to do it last weekend but due to issues I couldn’t, so yeah. After TRIGUN, Elfen Lied is on my list, sorry for the delays. 😦

Not this Saturday, next Saturday is my birthday and unlike last year, I really don’t have no plans to order anything. There are things I want/need, but bank issues are holding me up, so a six pack of Mike’s Hard Lemonade will need to hold me I guess. Wish some of the anime club lived around here so we could meet up & do something.

Mini Update

So, this weekend was somewhat productive! πŸ™‚ The computer game pads came Friday & I unplugged the shorted one, throwing it away, plugging in the new one. The backup is in my dresser’s item drawer if/when I need it. πŸ™‚ Boy, can’t tell ya how good it felt playing a game without the controller shorting out every second! πŸ™‚ Even managed to complete Devil May Cry 4 on hard, which I’m glad to see that I can still do it. When beaten, it unlocked two more modes, but I’m no way that hardcore to try em.

 

I am debating on showing game play footage of a boss fight, please let me know your thoughts

 

On the writing front. Tomorrow, (Tuesday) will be spent adding too, if not completing the fan based work, (the one with the woman below and the feline ninja guy), after washing pop cans out. πŸ™‚ My goal is to get open stories done before doing new stuff, as stated days ago.

 

Maki.

Lastly: Wednesday will be spent revisiting Elfen Lied so the review can be written, which most of you are waiting for, sorry to keep you all waiting. 😦

Finally, The Full Metal Panic Review

I’m so sorry it took this long to get this written, there were days where I felt to drained mentally to think, caught up with other things on my mind or writing. Again, please forgive me!

This review will just cover the main series of FMP & not the spinoffs, because to me, the spinoffs stray too far from “home” for my taste. My first look at this anime was back in the early to mid 2000s when I was apart of the college anime club & it instantly caught me. If you think the series is just another Mecha/army shoot the badguys type of anime, you’ll be surprised, it isn’t! πŸ™‚

 

A mercenary group, “Mithel” sends a battle harden soldier, (Sousuke Sagara) undercover to a Japanese highschool to protect a student (Kaname Chidori) who is targeted to be kidnapped due to the deep secrets she knows about whispers, (I don’t want to word what it is wrong, so I won’t try.) Right off, we see how he’s out of place because he always thinks he’s in the service and doesn’t know how to blend in & comic choas follows. Midway through the end of disc 1, we are introduced to Gauron who’s the main bad guy throughout the anime.

 

When he hijacks the airplane with Chidori’s whole class, redirecting it to a base then takes her hostage, we are treated to a build up and the build up is worth it. In my opinion the comedy and seriousness strike a well balance with each other. The combat sequences aren’t really drawn out too much, which I like to see. Sure, Gauron’s killed more times and returns than I cared to count and he’s an asshole, BUT he’s a character you love to hate! πŸ™‚

For a 2000s release, Full Metal Panic doesn’t look bad and the series flows well. It might have bumps, any anime may have rough spots, but I highly recommend it! Has anyone seen this, what’s your take on it?

Upcoming Anime Review

trigun

 

Well, my goodies were ordered earlier from Amazon and the first package with Trigun and the AA batteries will arrive Sunday, (Free two day shipping, love it)! Though thousands of reviews are littering the web, the anime will be reviewed by yours truly here, cause come on, a classic just gets better with age. πŸ™‚

 

That said, since I’m going to revisit the series, it won’t be rush through, tend to wanna take time with it, since not seeing it since my time with my adopted extended family years ago. Tell ya, the blood’s pumping & I am so excited to get a new addition to my anime collection! But, just wanted to let you guys know Trigun will be reviewed in the near future! ^_^
