I barely survived January, and I’m not sure if I’m gonna survive February either. The issue I’m having here is not just health but also time. Yes, I’m probably running out of time and therefore I’m doing my best to utilize whatever is left for me so that I won’t regret it later.
Hanazawa-san… er, I mean Kagami Yagami from Sasami-san@Ganbaranai
I was hit by hyperpyrexia (fever exceeding 41.5°C) two times since my 30th birthday on January 19. Even the second one just healed a couple of days ago. To explain how bad it was, I can say the first one made me unable to speak for 2 days and the last one was worse that resulted in abulia (inability to make decision), though luckily it was only temporary.
If that doesn’t sound bad enough to you then maybe my absence in blogging for the last couple of weeks could explain something to you. Ever since the first recovery I’ve become too unmotivated to do blogging, let alone to resume the Project 360. I’ve lost count of how many days I’ve fallen behind but at least I’m still finding my way to resume it though it might not be the same again (and posting 2 or 3 of them to make up for the loss of days wouldn’t really solve it either).
By the way I hope it’s not too late to wish a Happy Chinese New Year to all Chinese friends out there. Because of the hyperpyrexia I wasn’t properly prepared for it and by the time I realized other people around me are already celebrating it. Not that I’m missing much but I’ve always been in a very good shape in every CNY celebration since I was born.
As I have turned 30 last month, I also have quit the street dance group I’ve been with since the past 5 years. The group has now been disbanded, well not really but some new faces decided to form a new group, with a new name, without any of the original members but with credits to us. I, as one of the founding members feel a bit proud and I hope those new faces will be more successful than us.
A bit into anime, I have officially dropped OreShura because I can’t stand the Silver Hair anymore. I mean even after 3 episodes she is still as selfish as she was and wouldn’t mind hurting other people for her own sake. I don’t care anymore if she got raped at this point, actually I do hope that somebody could make a h-doujin showing her getting gangraped or something.
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha has unexpectedly become my must watch series despite a few issues I had with it in the first few episodes. It’s not that because her ‘plan’ has worked but because it is less about war now and more about development and improvement of human life. However war is still part of the story and I still hate how she is still vague about it when she is asked about the possibility for a world without war. Let me tell you something; a world without war is possible but the war keeps erupting because some jerks have access to power and would misuse the power to start the war.
Kotoura-san is getting more ‘friendly’ with Hiyori regretted her actions and now becomes a friend with Kotoura. The most recent episodes no longer show the ‘dark’ side of Yoriko and the anime itself is now more like slice-of-laifu than a heartbreaking drama. Well maybe this is just the calm before the storm but better be prepared for more suffering.
Vivid Yellow: henshin in progress.
I have never said I’m going to drop Vividred Operation although the story so far has never been something interesting to talk about. With the introduction of Himawari, and the docking that produced Vivid Yellow that looks pretty much like Mami-san, there’s no way I could drop this show at all. To show you how much similar they are just look at the two pictures below.
Vivid Yellow, henshin completed.
If Vivid Blue resembles KOS-MOS, and Vivid Green resembles Miku, does Vivid Yellow resembles Mami-san? I don’t know about you but that is how it is to me. No, I’m not complaining.
About Senran Kagura, this anime is a shit that I can tolerate solely because of oppai (without important information) and underwear/swimsuits. I mean other characters are all OK except for Hibari that makes me think how on Earth did that girl made her way into shinobi training? Did she bribe the management/administration with her body or something? Seriously she can’t do anything without Yagyuu; no, she can’t do anything at all even with Yagyuu around! Even if Yagyuu is spoiling her there’s no way someone as shit as her could exist in anime except for the sake for being shit. I don’t care if she is sexy or what. Shit character is still shit regardless how sexy it is.
Mondaijitachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo is another anime I no longer care to watch. I’m not really dropping it but waiting for an episode that is actually worth watching. I still don’t get what is actually happening in the anime and why some characters doing what they are doing. In the end something maybe done but without anything to judge why it has to be done. I could even say narutah is better than this.
Cuticle Tantei Inaba is also surprisingly watchable until this point. It didn’t wait too long to introduce Inaba’s lost little brother and since then everything about this anime is like a goddamn funny deconstruction/parody of various genres/cliches. And oh the ‘trap’ has somehow found himself a ‘girlfriend’.
Finally about Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT, which I think is quite lame if compared to the previous season. I think the lameness can all be attributed to Yozora’s bitchiness who still can’t get over of being annoyed by the presence of other club members, especially Sena. She hasn’t grown up from being tied to the past and bitches about other people every now and then. I was quite happy that they finally discovered Yukimura’s true gender but then Yozora being somewhat disappointed by it as if her plan went wrong spoiled the fun. I don’t get what is she doing with playing with Yukimura’s determination to become a man, as if she was doing it to amuse herself. No matter how I see it and how she denies herself being a bully, she already have the reputation of being a bully in my eyes.
So that pretty much summarized most of the anime I watched since I last posted something here. About Project 360 I think from now on I’m going to update it monthly instead of daily. It would require a lot of work to dump them in galleries but it’s better that way because I have no intention to abandon this project anytime soon.
