Haven’t had one of these in a while… and it feels kinda weird. Anyway, lotsa stuff this week! I probably won’t get to all of it, but I’ll just mention most of it. So, to start off, Kingdom Hearts is getting a piano collection! I’m really excited because I LOVE all the Final Fantasy Piano collections (or just any FF music in general. All the versions too 🙂 ) so I’m really excite that KH is getting one! It may not be done by Nobuo Uematsu (aka music GENIUS) but Yoko Shimomura has done some amazing work as well. Ah… these people are so amazing… I’m so envious… and more Square-related news, they’ve added more to the North America Dissidia page. It’s still very teaser-ish, but it looks totally awesome. I can’t wait for this to come out. Who wouldn’t love an FF all-star fighting game? That could very well be cooler than mixing Disney with Final Fantasy.

And it looks like Funimation is following Crunchyroll with simulcasts? Cool. And with FMA! Even cooler. “FUNimation will deliver high-quality, free, original Japanese dialogue accompanied by English subtitles, streaming episodes of studio Bones’ new Fullmetal Alchemist via http://www.funimation.com as well as key video-sharing partners.” I’m assuming the other video-sharing partners to be Hulu and Joost, so that may be US-only. Joost and Funimation are not as restricted, as far as I know, but we’ll see if they add restrictions because they’re simulcasts. Either way, very cool.

And while I won’t have time to talk about this too much right now, I finally finished up Saiunkoku Monogatari Season 2, Gundam 00 First season (lol yes I’m behind. By a whole season), and Skip Beat. For Skip Beat, all I’m gonna say is that it was amazing but cut off at a bad point in the arc. I’m glad they didn’t rush to try to finish the arc or anything, but without confirmation of a second season, it is still a cliffhanger, and that’s annoying. I still think the anime is amazing, but a second season is definitely needed. They didn’t even get to THE SCENE yet! (chapters 68-71 for those who want to know)

New chapters of Shugo Chara and Skip Beat, and TRC? Yay! lol

That’s why you need a plan b

So, as usual, my original plan didn’t end up happening so instead of finishing up Nabari no Ou, this week I caught up on Shugo Chara, which is still progress so that was good. And also, I’m feeling the need to further express my love of Skip Beat so I’ll be sure to do that in this post.

But I also feel like listening to a song…

This is Toast by J featuring Humming Urban Stereo. This is a really calming yet upbeat song that I feel like you’d here in a high-class coffee shop or something and I think it’s really cool. I can’t really remember how I found this song but I’m pretty sure it happened after surfing random videos of songs on Youtube which led me to this. I was also doing this yesterday for game music and came across some that were compilations of victory fanfares from a bunch of games and just listening to that reminded me of the great moments in those games and that happy feeling. Oh the wonderful memories…

Oh and if you’re not caught up on Shugo Chara or Skip Beat, this post may not be for you.
Anyway…

Getting busy now…

Well, I am getting busy but that’s not the reason I didn’t post anything yesterday. I had and am still behind (wow… like that’s new) on tons of stuff so I didn’t have too much to talk about. But I did have some free time (and being behind in everything, HOW is that possible…?), so I thought, “What should I do?” Anyway, I narrowed my choices down to finished Shugo Chara or posting something even more random than usual. Evidently, I went with Shugo Chara.

And it was pretty awesome.
Ah… why is it that any character wearing a cross looks extra attractive? Hmm…

Anyway, the show went…

Hello world!

No, this is obviously not my first post ever. Today is actually World Hello Day where you’re supposed to greet at least 10 people to promote communication rather than force to settle conflicts. Ah, world peace. What a beautiful thought. But it will probably forever remain a th- Stupid pessimism ruins everything.

Anyway, can you do this?

I gotta say, I’ve tried and it’s nowhere near as perfect-looking as this and it hurts like crazy. Well, that’s why it’s an anime and not real. If you didn’t know, this is from Shugo Chara and it’s basically…

Better late than never, right?

Hey! Sorry this is a bit later than usual… how am I more busy on weekends than on weekdays? Maybe this is just a one time thing. Still, very weird. I guess I have a little bit of reading to do… so we’ll see what happens. Yes, I’m writing a post as a form of procrastination. Meh, it gets the job done 🙂

So, somehow deluding myself into thinking that I had nothing to do early this past week, I started watching Shugo Chara. Having not watched the show before, I always pronounced it “Chara” versus “Kara/Kyara” now realizing that it comes from the word character. So it’s still taking me some time to get used to saying Kara since I always mentally read the name with a “ch”. Anyway, getting past the name, this is a pretty interesting show. The main interest is that all the main characters have little chibi-like would-be versions of themselves, a Guardian Character or a Shugo Chara, which hatched from eggs (basically representing their dreams). Meanwhile, the antagonists create X eggs and X Characters, corrupted forms of people’s dreams, and the protagonist Amu Hinamori has to purify them. Oh and everyone is looking for this special egg called the embryo that will be able to grant any wish.
For some reason, it reminds me of…

Late…

Gah… I was really busy this weekend. Half of it was my fault, since I did procrastinate, but I didn’t think my homework would take that long. And then I had some relatives come over, and stuff happened… you know lol. You start doing something for like 15 minutes and then Whoa… 5 hours went by. No? That only happens to me? Hmm…
Anyway, I’m not writing too much right now, but if I don’t have anything major tomorrow, I’ll make up for it then. I have TONS of stuff to write about (well, a lot. A ton is a relative term that basically means big, but big is also a relative term. Okay… I’m getting too technical here) One of the biggest topics being that I recently picked up Shugo Chara (Another show? Wow… yeah… I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Do I like being behind all my shows? Maybe because it happens so often, it will feel weird when I get to the point when I’m actually caught up to everything. But is that even possible for me? Now that is the real question…)

Well, I’ll talk more about that later… wow that felt really rushed. That’s so not like me…
