Happy new year
새해복 많이 받으세요
... and I open 2014 by cross-examining a killer whale. 8D Reflections and resolutions tomorrow. Wishing everyone a blessed and wonderful new year! ♥
Shows I've marathoned in the past year:
-Happy Endings (Seasons 1-3)
-Girls (Seasons 1-2)
-Sengoku Basara I & II
-Working! & Working!!
-Inu x Boku SS
-Gintama (Seasons 1- uh 6? the latest one lol)
Shows I'm currently following:
-Big Bang Theory
-How I Met Your Mother
-Cougar Town (season ended :( )
-One Piece (mostly to see a specific scene animated)
Games I'm playing:
-Fire Emblem: Awakening (second playthrough eheh)
-Final Fantasy: Theatrhythm (dear god Ultimate Score is killing me)
-Tokimeki Memorial: 3rd Girls Side
... hm. It's weird not knowing who the latest pop star or comedian is in J/K-entertainment anymore. On the other hand, I'm totally up-to-date on the newest seiyuu meat on the market. Kinda odd how I can never find a good balance of 2D vs. 3D obsessions; it's always one or the other with me.
I have to say though, why has no one ever mentioned Happy Endings? This show is ah-maazing.
After watching a bunch of walkthroughs and totally procrastinating on my studies lol, I've decided I'm going to go for a PS3 for when I start working. Yes, I know, the PS4 is coming out soon, but I think I'll get an older console first since it's a) way cheaper, b) probably less buggy, c) has more game selections.
Games I'm definitely picking up:
- Assassin's Creed II / Brotherhood
- Star Ocean 4 International Version
- Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (jpn)
- Persona 4 Arena (jpn)
Games I'm considering:
- Sleeping Dogs
- Heavy Rain
- Tales of Xillia (jpn)
- Catherine (jpn)
- Folklore (jpn?)
Any recommendations, dears? :3
I miss them. I've missed them.
I thoroughly enjoyed the AraFes concert DVD, probably because it's been so long since I've seen the boys shine in their natural state. Some of you might disagree, I'm sure, but I haven't seen that in their latest TV shows. Things actually feel scripted in recent episodes to me - like an episode of that Share House Arashi segment where Sho and Ohno come out of the same room, and Sho loudly laments that they're "creating a misunderstanding"; as much as I adore Yama pair, I'm not sold, Himitsu, not sold at all - so I can never hold back that rush of disappointment. I'd like to think it's not the boys, but more the fact that they're now the "nation's little brothers", they're on Golden Time, and TV stations have their own idea of how things should go.
Then I see them in AraFes, and I think, YES those are the boys I've been missing.
Happy, carefree, doing utterly stupid things to each other, with each other.
I know I sound like a cranky old biddy reminiscing about the Good Ol' Days, but hell. Arashi produces the best rainbow shit when they're just allowed to be.
And now, I'mma listen to old secret talks and bask in the happy gay.
