[toku] Gokaiger Final episode

Liveblogging last episode of Gokaiger :((((((((((

Also, lol, TVAsahi decided to play hide and seek again, so it's a good thing I decided to wake up early. And know that the anime slot before Gokaiger is Battle Spirits.

Goodbye Gokaigers!Collapse )

count; good evening gentlemen

like a stream that meets a boulder

So, after four years (or more....I think) of using my Nokia XpressMusic, my aunt decided that it's time for me to upgrade into something less embarrassing and dated and offered to get me a new smartphone. I wanted a smartphone that actually has a qwertyboard but isn't a Blackberry since I....don't have much use for business functions and I really, really don't want a touchscreen. Problem is, there are no more qwerty phones left on the market that isn't a Blackberry so my aunt finally convinced me to get an Xperia Arc S.

Which I immediately went to root so that I can uninstall pre-installed apps such as Facebook and Lets Golf since I won't use them and they're just taking up space. Still looking at what kind of apps I can remove because that's....what I normally do when I receive new, shiny gadgets.

My experience with the Arc S is...well. So far so good? Compared with the iPad that we're using at school, the touchscreen seems a lot more sensitive, although when I was playing the Bejewelled rip-off there were instances where the screen wasn't responding to me. I also found the on-screen qwerty board a bit too small for my taste, and I'm going to see if the DS stylus will work with the Arc S so that I don't have to keep mistyping things.

Also downloaded some games to put in the phone, but I'm not entirely sure how much time I will be playing on it considering that the phone got hot really fast when I was messing with the Bejewelled rip-off. Moved my music too while I was at it, although I'm still pondering what picture to put as a wall-paper. Also thinking of putting in videos so that I can finally watch some things that have been on the backburner for the longest time because I don't have time to watch them. At least I can judge how long the battery life will last if I keep using the...functions like they ought to be used.

On other news, I have...fallen sick due to exhaustion and am now valiantly trying to recover as fast as possible so that I don't have to take more sick days orzzzzzzz My fever is all gone but the cough is still persisting and that's not good since I need to rely on my voice. So far I've been preserving it by not talking as much but it still feels pretty swollen. Plus, I think the medicine has a tendency to make me kind of drowsy, so we'll...see what's going to happen tomorrow when I go to school.

Gaming-wise, I decided to pick up Radiant Historia and it's been a really good and solid game! I liked the characters and the time-travelling aspect and apart from the grinding thing it's really fun! Now the only problem is that I have to stop myself from getting spoiled since someone on the forums is also doing a Let's Play at the same time.

count; good evening gentlemen

truth lies at the bottom of the well

Okay, today's gokaiger operated on such a viscerally different note that I really had to comment on it.

Gokaiger 28Collapse )

And also I watched Fourze and my feelings are best summed up as ???!??!?!?. I'm not sure what I feel about the titular character because his acting seems kind of forced, or maybe that could be because everyone seems to be yelling in this show. I actually feel kind of bad for the guy he's heckling (Ken-kun, I think) because it's obvious that Ken's the one who created Fourze in his sekrit school laboratory with an anti-gravity field (I shit you not) and also a giant yellow transformer robot but because of his health issues, Ken is obviously not going to be Fourze.

Eh, I guess I'll give it five episodes?

[toku] Kamen Rider OOO overall review

So, Kamen Rider OOO ended this morning. Suffice to say, I don't really feel anything towards what happened to Ankh. In fact, although this SA reviewer's notes were pretty positive about the final episode, one repetitive bit stood out to me quite starkly and it pretty much summed up the series for me.

it does nothingCollapse )

gokai; we are pirates

these things we've mended

I guess I should really post an update on Gokaiger, but I haven't been really up to saying anything useful about the season except for the fact that I'm really enjoying it. Some people are saying that the series is getting a bit filler-ish but I for one am looking very forward to Luka and Don body-switching :) Considering that Luka's totally getting her lesbian on.

I've also finally gotten the invite to AO3, but I'm slowly uploading fic so as not to...flood the sections, I guess. It feels weird going back the archives and looking at KH fic, some of them have aged well, others....not so much thanks to Nomura's love of jossing every single thing. I'm wondering if I should put in a request for AtaDan given that I have a few, but it seems kind of pointless.

Been playing Re:coded since I'm....still not that inclined to play P3P: Side Minaho, and okay, I admit that BBS has made me want to play some variation of KH and I'm sure as hell not going to play Days, so Re:coded it is? Granted, Re:coded actually fixed most of the issues with Days, and I didn't get hand cramps unless it was during a particularly frustrating boss fight. They also mixed up the fights a little by using different kinds of play-modes, which is fun, but I wished that they didn't do the "turn-based mode" in the Coliseum because of the layers we have to traverse orz. It would be so much faster blowing through the Coliseum if we did free-fighting.

Some of the de-bug zones challenges really, really suck though.

deneb; my virgin eyes

the bottom keeps getting deeper

So, uh, is anyone else watching Tiger & Bunny because. Dude, I don't even know how they're going to end the series satisfactorily, especially with news of a season 2.

Also watching No. 6 and also finished watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Somehow, I think watching Madoka Magica has ruined meta-anime for me forever.
