End of School Year, 2008

People who've read my entries should remember me mentioning that I've been having vividly lucid dreams everyday, what I realized today is that my passage of time seems to be intact even while I'm dreaming so now it seems to me that I'm conscious 24/7. Shame that my sense of taste isn't in there too cause I was eating this huge Sloppy Joe sandwich the size of a desk. And I don't mean the ones in school, I mean those work desks that you use in offices or to place your desktop. I even had to eat it with a fork and spoon and even though I couldn't taste it, the damn thing had the perfect texture for such a sandwich meaning it would have been damn good if it was real.

As the title says, today's the last day of school for the year so I have a very good reason for celebrating today. Add that to my sniper worthy high score of 2390 against the former 1500 at the skeet shooting game(I seem to have a high affinity with the handling of weapons for some reason) at the mall Happyland arcade yesterday and I am in a good enough mood to get back to the painstaking work of translating manga. I was supposed to get back to send in the script asap but translating half of the wrong chapter bummed me out too much for me to get back immediately. Playing Fate/Stay Night didn't help with that either since it takes a whole lot of time to even finish one arc. Normally i'd have games finished within 20 hours of playing but visual novels really are something.

While I playing through the game, I noticed quite a few of the funnier lines that Rin had in the game were things that Shirou said were only capable of devils. If I use Shirou's statement as a standard then that would probably make me one too since I have said and carried out highly similiar threats. The comment on how normal people don't say scary stuff with a straight face was quite an interesting way to define it. I always wondered why some people would look amazed at some of the stuff I'd say, I didn't think what I say really are that unsual. I just thought they were things that people would eventually figure out in life and that I just figured them out a lot sooner since a test I took said my mental age would 37, twice as old as my physical age.

Because of this, I now realize that even though I can still look at things from my own, other peoples' and objective points of view concerning external matters, I simply can't understand how people think of me. It's hard to answer a question that you know the answer to with another people believe to be correct. So for the purpose of finding out what people think of me, I am posting a poll on what I would do once I've conquered the world. That's half seriously on my list of things to do by the way and I'm one of those people who could actually do that if I wanted to.

I'll leave you with this video of an amazing violinist.

On early holiday~

About a week or so till school ends and I've taken an early holiday. Shame I'll be missing tomorrows's teacher's day event but happy teacher's day to all the teachers in school anyway. However this end of exams and schoolworks have not lifted me out of the pits of despair completely as the Yen is still damn high. I'm in despair because the delivery cost for delivering my 00 gundam will be astronomical T-T.

However, I will not let that get me down for I have found some videos that will cheer people up quite easily. Her'es the first one which happens to be my favorite pick of them all:

I went LOL when I started seeing them do that. It reminded me of that joke where the Madgascar penguins curse the evolutionist, Darwin, for their lack of thumbs. I also loved the part where their leader, Skipper, considered taking over the place and refrenced Iraq by saying that they should impose an ideology that no one asked for and conquer. Go penguins!

Next up is the song that Will.I.Am. made for Obama's victory. It's got a catchy beat to it and it is perfect for celebration.

Then there's the infamous toughbook. I saw it for sale at the mall the other day and this vid really showed exactly how tough the toughbook is.

Here's an AMV for the Lucky Star OP, Motteke Sailor Fuku, involving resident evil. You won't get it unless you're a fan of both.

Code Geass fans will get a kick out of this one. Lelouch, singing Motteke Sailor Fuku.Lol.

That's about it for now. Chances are I'll find some more tomorrow. G'night.

Clannad After Story OP and Funny Online Tests

Haven't posted anything in a long time until now and that's because of a few online tests I took moments ago. I got some pretty interesting results as you can see on the right. Apparently I've risen from highly gifted to Genius in the past 3 years. I think I shall start going around telling people that I'm worth $US 2,910,000 alive and only $US 3720 dead. That should be a good enough reason to keep me alive. Go ahead and try them out yourselves.

Now onto the other thing on my agenda, this:

CLANNAD After Story Opening

CLANNAD After Story Opening Full


I’m only looking at the spilling hourglass
When I turn it upside-down, look, it starts up again
I wonder if I’ll be able to someday enter
The advancing time that only ticked away

Midway on the slope that only you passed through
Many warm spots of sunshine appeared
Here by myself, I’m reminiscing
About the tender warmth

It’s only you, it’s only you
Who I loved
My eyes tear up in the wind
And you become distant

I’ll remember forever
Even if just about everything changes
It was just one, it was just one
Ordinary thing
But in the brilliance that I’ll show you, there’s only one thing that was fulfilled
I’ll protect it forever and ever

The chilly days continue, even though it’s already spring
On a morning when I woke up earlier than the alarm clock
You’re standing there
Making breakfast for three

It’s only you, it’s only you
Who isn’t by my side
Up until yesterday, you were right by my side, looking at me

It’s only you, it’s only you
Who I loved
It’s a song that I sing
Only with you, only with you
It’s our, it’s our
Time passed together
I don’t want to
Continue on my own

I’ll remember forever
Even if this town changes
No matter how much sorrow I’m to encounter
I’ll show you when I was truly strong
C’mon, let’s go; we’ll start walking on the sloped road

It's an incredibly beautiful song for an incredibly beautiful anime (At least it should be if Kyo-ani sticks to the sequence in the game). The song itself is very fitting considering the heroine of the story and her storyline. I've pretty much read every bit of the game's scenario from online translations and I am of the opinion that it's the best Visual Novel out there. Even I who possess a poker face and a heart made of granite almost succumbed to the fate of tearing up at the normal ending. If you thought that Kotomi and Fuuko's story arcs of the first season of the anime were tearjerkers(they are for most people, many things say I'm not), the normal ending which is hinted at in the song is will break you down like humpty dumpty. I suspect that period will last one week if you're following the anime weekly and 10 minutes during a marathon watch.

It's with much regret that I still do not have an adequate enough mastery over japanese to play through a visual novel but nevertheless I still want to buy the game (When the english patch comes out, I'll be sure to enjoy the game myself).

Speaking of buying things, I wasn't able to procure enough money to buy another set of Gunpla with my 00 special kit but i guess that alone will satiate my need to build gundams(the fact that the GN-ARMS I wanted to buy was sold out didn't help either). Not only is it non Master Grade 1/100 that's has the quality of one, I believe it's also the first to employ a light up gimmick on it's GN drives.

1/100 GN-0000 Gundam 00

I'll definitely be getting this one too next year, most likely the 1/100 scale.

1/144 HG Gundam Seravee

Same goes for this one

1/144 GN-XXX Gundam Rasiel Sefer

These new models are truly droolworthy. I'll leave you with a picture of the Graham who is not Graham, Mistah Bushido! I did not draw it but this is still a ridiculously awesome fanart of a ridiculously awesome masked man!
