SUMMER SCHOOL IS DONE!
Yay!
lol

And I saw Harry Potter. Twice. First on opening day and then again just a couple hours ago (with different people). The crowd on the first day laughed a lot more than today. Without spoilers, I thought the movie was hilarious but the last 5 minutes were crap.

And I don’t really care that nothing happened in this week’s Bleach chapter (not even other party’s reactions. Except for Hitsugaya’s, but meh he’s not that important).
Vaizards pwn.
However, Omni has basically said my thoughts of how this will lead. It’s obviously not going to end that quickly so some obstacles/diversions will need to be put into place. Bankai is definitely a start. And illusions can always be added in at any time so that’s always a possibility. I’m sure there’s a zanpakuto/weapon for every power imaginable in the Bleach universe so I’m sure Tite Kubo will be able to think of more diversions. Still, anything with the vizards is cool. I just hope it doesn’t get to the point where I’m sick of them too.

And apparently there’s a…

So school is back…

And as much as I try to pretend it’s not happening, it is. Boo.
Anyway… I’m trying to procrastinate (already? That doesn’t sound good…) Okay, I’m not really trying to procrastinate (yet) but just avoid thinking about anything school-related, especially because it’s the weekend! Yay!

But yeah.. because of school, I think I’m going to end up making longer posts less frequently, so you’ll just have to bear with it. Unless I get smart enough to write more than one post at a time and disperse my postings throughout the week… meh, that’s too much work lol. But maybe when I really get back into school mode, I may be able to do that. We’ll see. 🙂

Thanks to Chris Cendana, HappySlip, and David Choi for getting I’m Yours by Jason Mraz stuck in my head. Go and check out their covers! They’re awesome too!

I’ve been catching up on some manga and anime (and starting a ton more) and it seems that every scanlating group is always looking for more help. So I thought “Hey, I’m not doing much this summer. why don’t I try and help out?” So I started looking around at what people are looking for. There were some openings for translators (can’t do that), editors (hmm), proofreaders (hehe yeah!), cleaners (hmm), and quality checkers. But I thought before I go any further, let’s see what I can do. I can proofread (unless it’s a mistranslation) and cleaning doesn’t seem too difficult and editing is basically those two jobs put together? Different groups divide the jobs differently, so it really depends. But anyway, I wanted to test my cleaning skills. I was thinking, If it’s just erasing what’s in the bubbles, that should be easy, right? But then I thought, Wait… what about the stuff that’s NOT in bubbles? Aah! So I thought I’d try cleaning a raw page. I took one of my favourite chapters from Bleach as the guinea pig (chapter 306).

So… have tropes ruined your life?

I’d have to say no, but I guess it’s a matter of opinion. 🙂

Here is the song Number One by Hazel Fernandez from Bleach.

Great song! But I wish I could also find the instrumental version with that guitar solo…
By the way, this is what you call a Theme Music Power Up.

So… have tropes ruined your life? Well, maybe I should tell you what a trope is in case you don’t already know. Here’s what it says on the TV Tropes homepage:

Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members’ minds and expectations. On the whole, tropes are not clichés. The word clichéd means “stereotyped and trite.” In other words, dull and uninteresting. We are not looking for dull and uninteresting entries. We are here to recognize tropes and play with them, not to make fun of them.

I love this site too because they give you examples from shows to movies to books and even if you don’t know the story, it’s still interesting to read about them.

So before you decide whether they have ruined your life, lets have some examples! I already gave you one above, but I’ll list a few more and comment on them.

Like… the latest song in my head. Sad Tango by Rain. (He’s so cool! And he’s an amazing dancer 🙂 )

Love this song. The music video for it has some awesome dancing too. Rain’s just too cool. Enough said.

Ahh… after three weeks, 98 hours of class, and a 3 hour exam, summer has really come!
So relaxing… now I can wake up late in the mornings! (or even in the afternoons!) Awesome! lol

Anyway, I thought I’d talk about the latest Bleach and Naruto chapters because… I feel like it. do I really need a reason? But before that…

If you’re not up to date with these mangas,
SPOILERS AHOY!

Okay? Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Go shield your eyes! Well, I will try to avoid major spoilers but the pictures will definitely be spoilers (duh).
