boring summer is booooring.

Okay, so I basically just got a new banner. It’s (obviously) one from Air with Yukito and Misuzu; I made of a summer theme because even though it’s gonna be spring ’07 for Japan, the Philippines only gets a hot and cold season, meaning Summer-ish and rainy. Maybe I’ll replace it, but as it stands, it’s fine with me.

^ Old draft that I never got to finishing ’til now.
Anyway, my laptop finally got its motherboard replaced so it should be working fine again. Unfortunately, I now owe my parents somewhere between 13,000 to 20,000 php, which is like, 270 to 400 USD. とても orz.

Tomorrow’s gonna be an interview for a job that’ll be for 5 weeks in the summer (April 18 to sometime at the end of May or something) and it’s funny since my Birthday is like, on April 17. WHAT A GREAT BIRTHDAY GIFT HUH? Then the day after tomorrow, I get my report card on the Sophomore year so my parents will actually see my grades, even though I already knew about them like, a week ago. Yay for the school releasing grades and the card one week apart from each other. Yes, the system is fucked up like that.

Also, despite getting a job, the total amount of salary I recieve (minus COLA (no, not Curiosities of Lotus Asia, for transportation) is still not enough for my loans. HOORAY FOR MINIMUM WAGE.

Blah, whatever. Anyway, onto anime.

KyoSora (insert episode number here) – 11

[I was lazy to grab a random picture for this show, because it sucked.]

I’ve gotten pretty sick of this now, to be honest. Screw the plot, screw Absolute Angels, screw it all. The animation’s gotten pretty awful, and I can already envision a yaoi doujin of Kazuya and Kyoshiro. I’m probably watching 12, just for the sake of completion, and then just delete it off my hard drive forever.

Nodame Cantabile 10

I love the S-Orchestra’s poster; it’s eye-catching.

I didn’t really watch 7, 8, or 9’s raws yet. The main reason why I watched this was because it had George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.

I love Mine’s violin-playing trick.

It was awesome and the Pianica additions were cool too. I just wish they made it a longer version (like, maybe 9 or 15 minutes) because 3 and a half minutes seriously isn’t enough for the piece. It was too bad though, that since it was an arrangement, they didn’t play the glissando for the clarinet in the original score on the Pianica (or perhaps it’s not possible on one?). Oh well, you can’t have everything…

The contrast between Nodame’s cute mongoose costume and the drawings in the background make them stand out a lot more.

Additionally, Nodame’s story behind the Mongoose costume was hilarious and the imagery shown in the anime just makes it that much better. I seriously can’t wait for the raws of episode 11, where the A orchestra plays a piece from Rachmaninoff (I forgot which. ahaha).

Anwyays, I can’t think about any other stuff to write, so blah.
