WARNING: THIS POST IS SERIOUSLY IMAGE HEAVY… BEWARE IF YOU HAVE A SLOW CONNECTION BECAUSE YOUR COMPUTER MAY JUST ‘SPLODE !!!!!!!!!!!
HECK YES I WENT!!!!
Anime Expo this year was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. When I first heard of this a good year ago I was really excited. I mean… LACC is really close by. Only about 20 – 30 minutes away… better than that 45 – 60 minute drive that it usually takes to get to Anime Expo. However, as AX drew closer and closer, I found myself losing my enthusiasm. It just wasn’t going to be that fun this year… There was no SOS Brigade Invasion Tour to look forward to, and all the major events didn’t attract me. I was looking forward to AX Idol since I wanted to audition for the Voice Acting part but it turns out you have to be at least 18 years old. This year’s AX was going to be boring as heck… especially since all the series I’ve been getting into lately were fairly new and not mainstream… so they wouldn’t have much merchandise on those…
But hey, I’ll blog about my time there. I mean, was it really that bad? ;o
There are a bunch of pictures of RO cosplays in here… XD;;

Very fun, indeed. Chireiyu and I only went three days, but still had plenty of fun. ^_^ However, I won’t be blogging on AX this year, I’ll let Chireiyu do it. So expect a long post full of awkward pictures coming up later today or tomorrow.
Pretty funny considering that AX seems to be the climax of our life stories.
Well, my birthday was last Monday, June 16 – although the supposed “festivities” ended yesterday, June 22 with a little family dinner thing. Nothing big happened, and I can’t say much in the way of presents. My dad payed for that cosplay outfit ages ago, yet that counts as his present for me. As for my mom, she gave me a bunch of clothes (all formal, dressy stuff that she wants me to wear yet I don’t really like – long skirts!! D: )… along with… $106.75 in quarters. That sure took me a while to count. O__O
I turned 16 on June 16 – how weird! Well I didn’t have a huge “Sweet Sixteen” party (oh those spoiled people on MTV…) but I still had fun. :D

Yep! You guessed right… I got my Miracle Mikurun Apron at long last! It came in the mail Friday. The minute I saw the package sitting on the table I grabbed it and ran to my room, taking my camera and a pair of scissors with me. The box was surprisingly large compared to the small item – that was probably why the shipping cost was 1500 Yen ~__~; No matter… I think it was all worth it. :D

Yeah, that’s right. I saw it.
Well, I have to say. I enjoyed it more than I did the first one. However, I don’t know if it’s just how I always have a PG-13+ state of mind, but I found Lucy getting pinched in the butt and saying “It feels like magic!” a bit too cheesy for me.
Overall, the movie was good. Nice special effects, the acting wasn’t that bad, the script was nice, the scenes went by smoothly… it’s just those damn cheesy scenes that killed it. I would recommend anybody to watch it if it weren’t for those scenes.
I’m being a bit biased though, but hey. My opinion is entitled to only myself. Like I said, if it weren’t for the cheesy scenes, I’d recommend it. See it if you don’t mind some rated G children story moments. After all, what more could you expect from a movie based on a children’s book?

I said I was going to get a cosplay and so I did! My dad gave me $100 to buy this cosplay… but it really cost $103 something. Dx
While it came in record fast time… I’m still slightly disappointed…
My dad managed to fix my laptop! :D It turns out the charger was the problem. He simply made sure the charger wire did not bend much by sticking a bunch of duct tape over it. It works but isn’t the most attractive of things to look at. Now I’ve got this huge protruding thing from the back of my laptop… making it hard to put on my desk with all the clutter that’s on there. Well at least now I can play RO and junk… AND HAVE SOUND! (my new desktop doesn’t have speakers)
My charger lovingly strewn across the floor
Size comparison! ^^ (that’s a nickel)

It’s been a hell of a long time since I’ve posted here. It’s mostly because of laziness, but some personal, social, school, etc problems have demotivated me to write whatsoever. And yes, I’m aware that demotivated is not a word.
Ancient Romans, Guitar Heroes, Iron Men, and “driving all through the night” after the break.

I managed to find the lyrics to “Lullaby For You” by JYONGRI. The song is the main theme of the game It’s a Wonderful World for the Nintendo DS by Square Enix and Jupiter.
[[ English Lyrics ]]
There may not be an answer to this tune
Why the sky is blue
Is the change in me all true
Now that you are next to me I have no fears
And all I know is that I want to be with you
Sometimes it’s easy to
Forget the times we weep
The moment makes us weak
And all the shame I seek
Memories exist for all the precious days my heart still wants to keep
Somewhere deep inside of me
