Here we go again...I really need to get around here more, there are peopleI really should re-establish contact with, since I do consider them friends, and not just aquaintences. I suppose having more time to do so would help, but considering how little time I have between work, Guards and that type of thing, it makes it annoyingly difficult. To those of the friends brigade(and you should know who you are, if you just don't realize it, THAT WILL BE SOON FIXED) I'll be PM you all when I have more that 15 minutes to myself with points of contact if you wish to use them.
Until then, Carpe Diem or Odurent Dom Metuant, whichever applies to ya!
Something I'm tired of getting, that's for sure. I wouldn't mid if more of it was something useful or good, but the mainstay of it here as of late has been shit, shit, SHIT. The local college I am trying to get into is sitting on papers for my acceptance, and if they continue to sit, I won't be able to register for them in time. If that happens, I'll be looking at deploying in mid May. Hoorah.
This is all also in the wake of learning my Uncle has inoperable cancer, and may be gone by the end of the week; I, of course, won't be able to be there for Mom or at the funeral, because I can't miss this Drill Weekend because we have several higher ups visiting, and I'm the only 35F to have the new training, and will be reperesenting my entire platoon. GOD would I kill for some good news...
Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.
I finally passed the anime in the AoT manga. This next half of season 3 is probably going to end before they explain everything, where the titans came from, the world outside the walls, and how everything happened. It's interesting, but I feel like it makes the series lose a major component which was the mystery of why anything was happening. The anime is about to get as intense as season 1 was, but after that I can see people getting bored with the next season unless the really fly through this section of explanations. I don't think they will though because the anime has been the manga verbatim.
Totally hyped for the new expansion for FFXIV, Shadowbringers, after this mornings announcements at the Fan Fest in Paris. We're getting a 24-man raid devoted to Nier called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and Yoko Taro is overseeing its creation, fucking sweet. It's supposed to further the Nier story as well (and if the concept art is to be believed it's sometime after the Automata storyline).
Say what you will about FFXIV but god damn do we get some awesome shit due to Square-Enix properties and their connections. I just fucking hope I can finally get my 2B glamour I've been wanting for my character. This just mean I need to quit being lazy and beat Automata before October (when this should probably launch since the expansion comes out in July).
I'll pass on a review of the Fall simuldub lineup. Mostly because everything I like is bleeding into the new season minus SSSS.Gridman, ZOMBIE LAND SAGA, and Goblin Slayer. There rest was underwhelming, absolute trash, or not dubbed. As someone that enjoys a fanservice fest now and then, I don't get the appeal of SENRAN KAGURA, After 3 eps, I was like "holy shit this is so bad". I guess because it tries to be so serious. Anyways, I watched the first ep of Magical Girl Spec Ops, and it was pretty awesome. I think this is closer to what I was expecting from Raising Project. Seeing a magical girl slice up a bunch of people with a karambit was pretty awesome. Boogiepop and Others is interesting so far so I'll stick with it. Still waiting for Mob Psycho 100 season 2 to start the dub, and I guess I'll ride the hype train for The Rising of the Shield Hero when it starts.
