Haikyuu! season 2 (and God Eater)

As I pulled up the season final for Haikyuu! season 2, I stumbled across an announcement thing in the most recent anime uploads for the anime site I was using which instantly caught my eye because it was the last (13th) episode of God Eater!! 

Now, God Eater was an anime from the Summer of 2015 that was based off the game God Eater Burst I think and the first anime I decided to watch based off a video game. And I totally looooved it. However, there were issues releasing the episodes on time, and after many delays, the 8th episode was the last one for quite the while because they postponed the series until the Winter season that year. Or so they said.

It was then completely unheard of until just now, for me at least, and now I see on this site that they’ve been uploading the last few episodes in the last few weeks of March 2016 and the last episode came out yesterday. Well, I’ll probably watch that this weekend or something, but now, back to Haikyuu!

OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOOOOSHHHH

So much hype and build up! And there wasn’t even a proper match in this ep! They wrapped up Seijoh’s loss super well and I felt kinda bad for Kindaichi, but then his teammate told Kageyama how they wouldn’t lose next time and it was the start of a super serious rivalry once more. On both sides ❤

Then there was Oikawa. You know how I hate Stupid Royal Ass most of the times during matches against Karasuna even though most of the times I like him but I just get annoyed when he’s against them? Well, this is the one time I was suuuuper loving and happy with him! When? When he told the even holier than Oikawa (this statement is equivalent to saying with a bigger ego than Seto Kaiba. Yuh-huh, I went there.) Japan from Shiratorizawa (you know, strong-jawed, “concrete can’t bear fruit” guy.) how he better not have all his attention focused on him, because otherwise he might get stabbed where he least expects it. By Oikawa’s “kawaii kohai” Tobio (ew, that’s so weird to even type). Oikawa even had a special edition of Hinata’s rape face going on and it was one of the best things ever in this episode. Creepier than even Hinata when he makes that face, yes, but epic nonetheless.

Then there was the actual build up towards the finals. The school congrats, even the little tv announcement, it was all adorable ❤ (Hah, stupid newscasters! You can’t focus on bloody Oikawa and his preferences for girls and chocolate now can you since he LOST!! Muahahaha!)

I also loved Hinata’s little speech of “It doesn’t matter” because they’ll win anyways after Ukai-sensei tried to prepare them the night before the match. It was worth it. I honestly died a little with the end credit scene as well because it reminded me so much of Japan in the one episode where Hinata and Kageyama scouted the competition with Shiratorizawa. That’s why when Hinata and Kageyama stepped up-  Japan recognized them, of course (one does not simply forget when Hinata jumps two feet above your head and steals your volleyball. Promptly afterwards which he threatens you with his rape face of terror.); called them out by name, and the entire Karasuna team was like what the eff is happening?! – and said how he was going to prove that talent can grow from concrete and how he’s going to show him by defeating him.

(Japan also said the line “Let’s meet on the court” and I couldn’t help but think “pfft, not unless you go to the bathroom first and see Hinata a mess of nerves and lose all the current respect you have for him.”)

I had to resist so much to not put a thousand spoilers onto my snapchat story of the show because I do know at least one of my friends on it is behind BY CHOICE, the fool. Ugh, that moment Kageyama and Hinata read the sheet that announced tomorrow’s match- “The Japanese National High School Volleyball Tournament Miyagi Prefecture Qualifiers (Boys) Finals Shiratorizawa vs. Karasuna” I diiiieeeeed with squeals and eeeeps of excitement as I usually do.

Time for this flock of crows to tear apart an eagle as Oikawa said very fittingly~

UGH so much perfect build up but now we have to wait until Autumn 2016 for season 3!! Aaaaaaaah come soon ❤ ❤ ❤

Current Cosplay Plans for 2016

I haven’t cosplayed super seriously since Cruella De Vil and I am CRAVING cosplay now.

And I do realize there are a few cosplays I just haven’t either made the time for or haven’t had the money for, but regardless, I think compiling a list of the ones I aim to accomplish by the end of this year should help me satisfy some urge to walk outside dressed as L just so I can say I am at least trying (and so I  can continue procrastinating my English assignment and put off studying for my CS midterm- it’s not that kinda compiling. Eyyyy. Okay, shutting up now.)

I Sora (from the anime: No Game No Life)

Of course, this was planned as a couple cosplay with Alya and WE STILL INTEND IT TO BE DONE AS SUCH. We’ll just crop each other into our cosplay pictures. Why not? Or take advantage of the separate world and use some magical explanation to explain why we’re apart. (Maybe Tet kidnapped me?? But that doesn’t really make sense since they both have already explicitly said how they can’t be outside of a certain number of meters of each other before…)

I mean, Alya’s first ever wig was for her Shiro cosplay! Super fluffy and white like Killua’s hair, it didn’t suit it all that much, but her styling skills have come far in the few years and I’m sure she can fix it up properly now :3

II Wednesday Addams (from the tv show (and movie): The Addams Family)

Back in my crazy moving/traveling days, I have seen a buuuuunch of the original tv shows’ episodes on many different, suuuuper long flights. That’s where my love for the show began. But honestly, I don’t remember too much of them now, yet when the remake movie came out, I watched is super excitedly and now this Wednesday is the first one I think of whenever I heard Wednesday Addams 😛 So as strangely inconsistent as this will be for my usual original character love, Imma cosplay the reboot version. Oh wyell ^_^

III Nishinoya (from the anime: Haikyuu!) 

You might remember my fangirling over this awesome guy in another post when I actually decided I definitely would cosplay him. Imma just link that here now instead of boring you with more gushing over him :3

I’d better stop with the pictures now before I descend into a downward spiral of hunting down all amazing pictures of him…

IV Ellie (from the Disney Pixar movie: Up)

Now, I’ve wanted to through together an Ellie cosplay for the heck of it as a #CasualCosplay ever since I bought my overalls, but I never found a shirt I was happy with! I mean, I do have a button down blue floral shirt that could do in a pinch, but I reeeaaally want to do her justice. And I do have a yellow button down, but the collar is bedazzled with golden sequins….(My wardrobe is fabulous, I am aware.)

V Tohru Honda (from the manga(/anime): Fruits Basket)

One of the first manga I ever read, and definitely the first “longest” one I finished :3 I always thought to cosplay Tohru when I wanted to try out cosplay but not commit to it too much back in middle school. I still never have, but let’s see, maybe I will now!

(Even though now I’d totally rather do a gender bender Hatsuharu or Hiro 😛 Oh snap, I reeeeaaaaally wanna do a Haru now….)

VI Hatsuharu/Haru (from manga(/anime): Fruits Basket)

I think it would be incredibly fun to play around with his alter ego AND his usual personality ❤

VII Either Mikoto-chan or Kashima (or both?!) (from the anime: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)

Mikoto-chan:

Kashima:

This sly, Tamaki-level fox BUT WAIT-

Still gets more girls than poor Mikoto-chan which is why he’s so pissed here xD

But it’s okaaay. They both are so amazing and lovable I’ll probably just do both ❤

Wait, is this number VIII or IX now..? Ugh, forget this, it’s been fun, but I’m no way deciding all the cosplays I want to do in an entire year now! It’s fun to sponatneously decide to do one or discover something in your closet that would be perfect for a character so you just DO one.

Either way, this has been fun and I’ll hopefully think up of many more to dress up as too~ :3

Until later tonight when I die over the Haikyuu! season 2 final! (Yes, I’m a day late, but you know what, I was dying after having my gym lock-in and all that excersize. We all know how crazy it is to think of me excersizing at all, let alone the majority of the night, so yes, I slept early and missed my Haikyuu! watching time so I’ve been resisting the urge to watch it until tonight. YAY; get hyped!)

Haikyuu! (Season 2 ep 24 & Season 3!)

Yes, you read that right- the third season of Haikyuu has a debut date! It’ll be coming out this fall (2016) anime season! Yaaaaaay!

It has been minutes since I finished the most recent episode from season 2, soooo (and yes, I realize I saw it a day after it came out, geez, but I wasn’t feeling too great then so I saved the hype for when I could better appreciate it. THANK GOSH.)

[Spoiler Alert!]

OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH

In Oikawa’s faaaaaace! You’re royal ass just got kicked by “the idiot duo” HAH. How do you like that, Your Highness? In your face, in your face, in your faaaace~ (I could do this all day.)

Oh my gosh, Johsai, your libero ticks me off so much. I wish Nishinoya had a fabulous moment in the spotlight and CRUSHED HIM UGH. It didn’t happen, but with the outcome of them BEATING JOHSAI SO THOROUGHLY WELL, I can let it slide.

Tsuki was also kinda ignored in this ep, but he did get to show off previously in the game, so that’s acceptable.

I’d also like to add how I no longer at all can ever hate Yamaguchi. Oh my gosh, even in the last few eps the drama and emotional blows he delivered with his serves were just- too much. And when he told Hinata he WOULD get ten points next time ugh- TOO MANY FEELS.

HINATA’S MURDER FACE IS BAAACK~ Y’all know what that means!!

AND speaking of Hinata- OH MY GOSH, that brilliant drop-in over the net toss and feint Hinata and Kageyama pulled off end of last ep/beginning of this one?! So great ❤

I don’t want this season to eeeeeend! Go on to nationals. Go on and KICK dat Japan logo wearing prick’s ass like it’s no big deal and then FLY. Just fly.

Never about to fall asleep because too pumped, too much hype, too much ecstacy, and too much damn excitement,

Best. Social. Experiment. Ever.

Today Zahra came over and told me about conducting some sort of social experiment for her psych class. I definitely wanted in. So what did we do?

Let’s go over what the experiment was supposed to do first. We were supposed to capture the reactions of people to an abnormal action. You know, question social norms and that kinda shiz.

So what did we actually do?

Zahra wore a horsehead mask and on sight, I would scream “horsie!” and run after her. Then, I would entice her with this perfect carrot tied to a stick and jump onto her back. We walked around like this through downtown, the park, etc. etc.

SO I RODE HER AROUND PIGGY BACK STYLE FOR LIKE AN HOUR.

Pretty damn fun I have to say.

We also posed atop this fab amphitheatre type thing in the park so the platform made us look like a majestic statue.

Some ladies thought we were hilarious and asked for pictures, some girl scouts were disturbed for life, and many many people neighed at us or commented on how they wanted a horse too.

Tough luck, love. This one’s all mine. Get your own.

(Once we were done, we got lunch at Chipotle, but Asma was carrying the remains of my carrot and the stick it was tied to which she leaned against the wall near our table when she was ordering. But then we left after we finished eating. And kinda remembered the stick and the carrot once we got to the car to drive on home…I remembered and the thought of those Chipotle workers finding the stick with half a carrot attached- priceless!)

Movie Night Out of Boredom- Bollywood Edition

I’ve been jamming out to some serious Shah Ruh Khan recently and another movie with damn catchy music in it would be Jab We Met which so happens to be one of my first recallable bollywood films I’ve seen as a kid.

Sooo I rewatched it yesterday and I kinda really liked it and didn’t hate it?

The question mark is my childhood self being confused as to what just happened.

AND AND AND there was this awesome moment of accomplishment for me where the characters switched to punjabi and I COULD UNDERSTAND

In all my years around punjabi I have never been able to understand, even the gist of stuff and I thought it was cuz of my lack of urdu skills buuuuut

I. Got. It.

So I’m thinking it might’ve been an accent thing, or a speed thing but but but I DID UNDERSTAND.

Ah, this makes me feel great. Yay~

Anways, I have another adventure to talk about so I should probably start that post before I forget.
