      So, umm...

      1 day ago

      (The rollback killed my last journal ;__;)

      While I was playing Weiss Schwarz at the shop yesterday, my friend told me a few times that I should really sleeve my new deck, especially one card in particular from it. Also invited me to play some more at a different shop today, but the fact that I stayed up for 32+ hours again killed me, and I didn't wake up until this afternoon so going would be pointless. Anyhoo, he said that if I went that people would be drooling over this card. Now, while I can relate (it IS Sinon, after all), I wondered if he was serious about the attention it would get. So last night I looked it up.

      LeyJPaU.jpg

      This card, Machine of Ice, Sinon, that I pulled in my trial deck (bought it at Ai-kon) is the SP rarity, signed by Sinon's seiyuu, Miyuki Sawashiro. I was told that something like that only comes up once in every TWO CASES of decks (there may be a RRR rarity card instead), meaning it is indeed super rare. I looked up how much it happens to be worth, and to my astonishment this one card is going for $234.99 on ebay. Holy shit.

      This may be the most expensive fucking card I have ever pulled in my life. I don't think I have a single Yugioh card worth that much. And I got it from a $20 deck! This thing is worth almost twelve times that. Jesus, I'm blown away. I have no plans to sell it, of course - I like my rare cards, after all. Hopefully I can work on improving my deck little by little and give this girl the glory she deserves. Weiss Schwarz is actually pretty fun.

      Anime catch-up

      3 days ago

      GsYGUrb.jpg


      God Eater episode 3 is easily the best so far. That annoying slowdown from before? They only used it where it was appropriate this time, rather than throwing it around everywhere. I actually got really excited, watching the battle atop the carrier plane. "THIS is how God Eaters should fight!" That's the sort of feeling I go, the kind that made me want to pick up the game and start playing again (to fight, not just to hear Alisa call me 'Leader' again... >_> ). Two problems with that, though - one, my PSP's screen has a digital crack that pretty much blacks out nearly half the screen. I can only use it for music in this state. And two, I'm playing Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate at the moment. Pretty addicting after all, and very similar to GEB gameplay-wise. I'll give more opinions on that another time, though. Anyhoo, I'm liking this anime adaptation so far. They keep giving us glimpses into the discovery and cultivation of Oracle Cells, how the Aragami came into being. It was only lightly touched on in the games proper, so seeing it come to life on the screen is a real treat ^^


      On another hand, I've finished Ufotable's production from last season now, Fate/Unlimited Blade Works. I loved that they had an epilogue episode showing Shirou and Rin's life in the Clock Tower Academy. Shirou's found his answers, and Rin's gonna follow him around. Hearing her say "I love you" would have been nice, though. Instead we got her fighting Luvia in a kickass mage sparring battle. Not nearly long enough, but it was fun.

      Anyway, this anime may have firmly planted itself into one of my higher places. I absolutely loved the art and animation, unbelievably fluid with gorgeous effects. And the story of course expanded on what I'd seen from DEEN's movie adaptation, apparently even adding its own tidbits that fans of the visual novel enjoyed, like what Medea did before arriving in Fuyuki City. The battles were all top-notch (except for how often it would cut away in the middle of them to something happening elsewhere before returning), the voicework was divine, and the story was engaging. And don't even get me started on the incredible soundtrack. The music was just...MMMM. If you know me, you know I love my tunes. And I often had to rewind to catch something the characters were saying because I was too busy being enamored with the BGM. Naturally, EMIYA was used perfectly, but I also caught a hint of Disillusion (This Illusion?), the first Fate/Stay Night's opening in orchestral form. Made me expect a lyrical version to pop up at some point, but I guess that was in the previous season. Regardless, eargasms everywhere.

      My only gripes were relatively minor. First, the mana transfer didn't even imply what it normally does. In F/SN we got an energy dragon as a censor. In the UBW movie, we got energy dolphins. This time we got energy bird/sperm/whale things, but there was nothing to block out. Second was that Rin never actually said 'I love you.' The meaning behind some lines of hers made it very clear that she does love Shirou, but it isn't plainly stated. Just a preference of mine. And finally (and most importantly), you know the Unlimited Blade Works invocation poem? That awesome piece of English spoken clearly in this Japanese series? I don't think that it was ever spoken line for line all in one go at all in the entire series. Lines came up now and then, but never the full chant, not until Shirou made his own version separate from Archer's, and that was spoken in Japanese. How can the UBW chant not be used in full glory in the entirety of a 26-episode anime? That ain't right.

      I am the bone of my sword

      Steel is my body and fire is my blood

      I have created over a thousand blades

      Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life

      Have withstood pain to create many weapons

      Yet, those hands will never hold anything

      So as I pray, unlimited blade works.

      Anyway, really happy with that series. Absolutely beautiful to watch. I can't wait for the day I feel like marathoning the whole thing. Next up, I have to finish Is it Wrong to try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? and then get started on Monster Musume I suppose. But for now, back to playing Monster Hunter. I really need to fight stuff to burn off this excitement!

        Not yet. I haven't read much manga since my computer broke down aside from Hayate, Real Account, and UQ Holder.

        I intend to, yes. After the site is actually, you know, functioning. It will be a grand spectacle linking all of my serious accounts into one, because if you google my new username the only results you get are me. ...And some asshole I made an enemy of shitposting me, but w/e.

        I have a physical copy, so I don't need it. Besides, don't have my profile back yet, so no point in getting Live until I do.

      So the author for Denpa Kyoshi was the same guy who did the Negimaru doujin series, which I just read and holy crap it's pretty dark. It's a prequel to the Negima series, delving into a different universe where chisame hasegawa was in love with Negi but gets raped and stuff. It's all pretty messed up, but still, A-1 is just absolutely running their own reputation by doing such a shitty job. Not just showing they can put out a crap work like this, but that they are fucking assholes who are jaded as fuck and will screw you over if you did something to upset them.

      Welp, made the payment to Jaidenkaiba. Hopefully he'll work on my request next so you might expect to see him pop up some previews soon, if he does any.
