Summer Anime Season- Start!

The new Summer anime are coming out this week~

And Alya’s already picked out a greaat Thursday anime (we finally have one :’) ) called Glasslip. It’s adorable, and it’s a simple slice of life anime too. So refreshing after (mostly dark) stuff like Black Bullet, No Game No Life, and Brynhildr in Darkness, etc.

Glasslip

Now, I have to mention other anime too, before I move on to critique it properly, which I’ll probably do tomorrow. I’m lazyyy now ^_^;

Liiike, how I actually found us this anime, but it soo isn’t my cup of tea. Gore. Blood. Icky gruesome killing scenes. Scary eyes. Aaaand weird sexual pleasures out of killing people. O.o God help meh D: It’s Tokyo Ghoul, and I heard it’s story was amazing, so I told Alya to check it out. She watched it before I did, and fell in love with it. She’s gotten another one of her friends to watch it with her, so I don’t have to unless I really can stand tolerate it for that long. It’s thirteen episodes, so…maybe?

Tokyo Ghoul

Theeen there’s the one I’m reaaally looking forward to for Monday! Akame ga Kill! The one with the epic combinations of voice actors that I heard about in the end of May. I posted about it already, so links to the list of it’s cast as well as the summary of the story is available there~

Akame ga Kill

A cover form the manga, but you see the characters split up like this~

And that’s all for now!

So, to sum up my Anime weekly so far, it’s
Monday- Dragonar Academy, Akame ga Kill.
Tuesday- Nothing so far.
Wednesday- HxH(the next arc started ❤ ), Glasslip.
Thursday- Tokyo Ghoul (maybe?).
Friday- Nothing so far. 
Saturday- Mahouka (koukou no Rettousei), Rail Wars, SAO II.
Sunday- Haikyuu.

I think. The anime calender site I use is telling me they come out on different days, but my anime site had them uploaded according to this, to the best of my time maths 😛

Weeell, whatever. I’m going to go watch some TV before going to sleep now. Phew, I’m beat!

Ayesha’s Board Game Birthday

Started out on the 28th of June, but I never finished it until now-

Today we celebrated Ayesha’s seventeenth birthday. We basically all showed up to her place, and naturally, I was the last to show up. Once we were there, we were all starved at 1 pm, and head out for lunch. After shooting down many ideas, and just mehhing at others, we finally decided to go to Street 1 Cafe, and we even sat at OUR table! The one in the corner, in the back, with the individual cushion chairs, in front of the bathrooms.

Ayesha treated us to lunch (she and amna did all the calculations to ensure we’d have money to pay for everyone, as well as enough left over for cream puffs from Beard Papa’s afterwards). Our drinks were the first things to arrive, and we made it known to the world just how crazy and weird we were right there and then. Alya ordered something called a Slizard on the menu, Mnaz a classical lemonade, Ayesha some sort of kitkat cold coffee blend, Amna a blue lagoon/pinacolada, and I didn’t order a drink. A wise, wise choice.

Soo. Alya’s drink was pretty salty and sour. Still liked it. Mnaz’s lemonade was waaayy too sour for my taste though. Amna’s drink was the perfect amount of sweet, which for everyone else was TOO sweet xD So I had to finish that~ Plus, Ayesha didn’t like her drink either, so I had to help her finish that.

Oops. The weird and crazy bit. I mixed a bit of everyone’s drinks into my empty water glass and drank it. It was pretty good. Oh, all the drink’s but Amna’s. But still. It was interesting watching their reactions. Especially Alya’s since she was so disgusted, and even Ayesha! She’s the one that suggested it to me! I mean, I do this shiz, but I thought better of it at a fancy-ish cafe which was jam packed, and I’d only end up embarrassing my friends. Apparently not. But it was hilarious for me~

Our food arrived, and we  tucked in. Thanks, Ayesha~! It was yum yum yum, and we had to get the food packed since we were nitpicking at each other’s plates.

Once we were done eating, we head on over to Beard Papa’s to get the cream puffs to go. While we waited for our order, Alya and I took our fab selfie with the gnome they had, Mr. Papa Beard himself (Ayesha “photobombed” with her classic/typical hands clutching each other in the front, pouty smile, face tilted to the left (always the left) pose). And then we approached the counter to pay, where they were still preparing our order. I swipped a bit of the cream filling off the butterpaper they had spread out to fill the pastries. Yeaaah, I’m totally getting banned from there someday!

Now, our posse moves on to One Shop to try and find the Sharoh Khan movies we were going to watch. The store didn’t have any such “old” movies. We moved on to Radio City. There, we found so many, we couldn’t choose! It didn’t help that they were placed right next to the Disney Cartoon movies…Needless to say, it took us forever to decide what to buy! None of us could decide on one film to watch. And whenever we decided to try and shortlist so we could all vote, one of us would run off to grab another candidate movie to the voting roster. In the end, we didn’t buy our movie, but decided that we’d just stream on while we waited with our board games. (Alya did buy some Sharoh Khan movie though.)

Now, at the Ayesha/Asad Cave, we set up for a challenging game of Taboo. Boy, was it a let down! ONLY score wise, as Alya and I (#BeeLive) lost =( We were competing with Mnaz, Ayesha, and Amna. I think the score was sixty something to seventy/early eighties something. Mnaz and I were the only experienced players. It was insanely fun, and we all got so hyped with this game that we played for two and a half hours, I believe. We played all the purple sided ones, then started with a few of the green ones, until our game was cut short since Amna had to go to an impromptu dinner thing.

After that, Alya had to leave soon too, since her mom had to go somewhere. Now, with just Ayesha, Mnaz, and I, we decided to go grab our left overs and settle down, snug and super lazy, to watch some youtubers react videos from the FineBro.

Eventually, it dwindled down to just Ayesha and I, and we chilled until I too left.

All and all, it was a greaaat birthday celebration, and now I’m decided what the hell I should do for mine! It is July after all!

*excitement*

Phooo, I stil have to post about the Rung Fight at Mnaz’s place on Wednesday… AND today’s new anime… =Y

I’ll do it eventually~!

Haha, until next time~

Sword Art Online Season II Announcement- News, Initial take, and Story Line Discussion

On the little chatango box to the right of animeultima.tv (where I watch all  my anime. I’d seriously recommend it; it’s awesome!), I saw people discussing Sword Art Online. And it’s second season coming out.

Now, I had only started watching it a bit  a few months back, and had only seen the first three episodes. But I had heard Alya fangirl over it all the time. And the way she talked about it, I thought the show already had two seasons, both of only 12 episodes each. So when I saw this discussion on the new Season II releasing in July ’14, I thought the admin on the site had just been too lazy to upload season II before (I’m sorryyy! >.< I’ll never doubt your hard work, and perseverance again!) and were going to upload that in July.

Turns out I was huuugely mistaken, and there’s only one 24 episode season I of SAO, and they are releasing a sequel season soon. But it’s story line is terrible so far for sooo many reasons!

First, I thought that Kirito wasn’t in it at all! And that these two chicks were instead;

Main Characters~

How cool do they look?- But, no! No Kirito?! Then how’s it SAO?! It’s an unnecessary weird spin off thing, like Soul Eater Not! (Like it, but not as good as the original series.)

And then Alya does a bit more googling on the story line, while I google more on it’s release.

It turns out Kirito IS in the story. But Alya misinformed me and said he’s in it as a SUPPORTING CHARACTER to these two chicks.

Bring out the army of fangirls. This isn’t going to be pretty.

But theeen, we find the actual story- Kirito’s avatar is simply that of a girl’s! He’s the maroon haired chick here! This chick;

*Avatar may or may not be this blue. I don’t know.*

*Or this maroon. They need to decide a color scheme, sheesh.*

And him having the avatar of a girl’s is terriiible! Because he’s obviously going to get stuck in a game again, and for the vast majority of the show, we shall see him as a giiirl! Ewww! As someone who think’s Kirito’s adorable, cool, and cute, I’d hate to watch him as a girl all of a sudden. That just doesn’t work for me.

What were the writers thinking? They’re going to end up loosing loads of fans! And the fans they think they’ll gain with She-Kirito’s boobs won’t be that big if no one even understands the confusing mess they’ve made out of the story. I mean, it’s only normal to assume the lead will be the same- and same gender >.> =/- in a sequel series. So not many people will skip SAO and just watch SAO II cuz of the girl leads.

Pfft, and the best thing is this stereo type the Japanese are playing on the Americans. Usually, in anime and manga it’s a rule that all American foreigners muuust be blue eyed and blonde? Well, here they’re adding to that (I hope!) and adding this impression from the internet. The American video game Kirito’s playing now is all about- you guessed it- GUNS!

Gun Gale Online (GGO) (Gale? Reallyyy?? Like, a gust of guns? Like a wind bringing guns with it? Or super guns that blow air too? What a name…) is a game all about guns. But Kirito’s got too much swag for that shiz and obviously went “I’m Japanese. In an Anime. I do what I WANT! Your laws don’t apply to me! And even if you do try to get me to adhere to the rules of this game, I shall use my Japaneseness to simply recode the program of your game to allow me to play with epic swords!” on them and did just that. He has a sword (light saber thing…?)(as well as a gun?) as his weapon.

[I don’t mean to sound mean toward these nationalities. I’m simply joking around. It’s all fun and games. Please don’t take any of this seriously. If anyone out there is offended, know that that was not my intention, and you shouldn’t be. I’m not serious. But in case you still are, I apologize for bring about such a mood on you.]

I gotta go now;I’m exhaaausteeed.

‘Night~!

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei- Discussion & Gushing on Episode VII

[Spoilers will be present in this post!]
You have been warned.

First thing to gush about- Ze Crimson Prince! (Ep VII- The Appearance of the Red Head)
From the most recent installment in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei~

So this guy FINALLY goddamn had a cameo after SEVEN episodes of waiting for his badass arrival! All these red heads from this anime season are pretty awesome. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Sora ❤

But this is about THIS prince <333

Dat Blood Red Uniform.

I saw him in the theme song and instantly knew this guy was going to be my favorite character. I have hence been waiting desperately for his appearance in the show!

And after every disappointment so far, Alya and I plotted gruesome murders of the creators of this show because 1. Red Head wasn’t in the show yet, and 2. Tatsuya hasn’t shown us his epic fighting skills, not all of them, and not a single fight has occured that has pushed him to his limits.

But now that the Crimson Prince is here…that may change very, veryyy soon.

Especially since they just showed that this guy is from another magical high school, and a very…morbid? Realistic? Deathly? Dark? one at that.

I mean- Red Uniform. The first scene he’s shown in, he’s drenched in a pool of blood! That’s why his uniform is red, I tell ya =/

But, gooosh, they showed him next, in the shower- but course they didn’t show all of that, they just showed his wet feet, and then his wet head. But he was shown wrapped up in just a towel after that. Which was when he did a HAIR FLIP THINGIE. Damn.

He swooshed his hair back dramatically, discussing their rivals.

Rivals obviously being Tatsuya and Miyuki!

Ah, right, I said ‘their’. There was this little vampire Seedot present too. This shortay.

Shortie Vampire Seedot

And now, here’s a seedot for comparison’s sake.

Seedot (Pokemon, Gen II, I believe.)

Anyhoo, I think some background is needed.

Mr. Vampire Seedot and Cool Evil Villain were discussing the news of how there was a bomb attack at Mahouka Koukou (Tatsuya’s magic school.) and how it’s rumored to have been caused by terrorists (that was not the case at all, but just a cover up. It’s amazing how terrorists are used as a cover up story in a fictional story xD ). And that’s when Red Head asked if their ‘rivals’ were safe. Which they were. And that’s when the end credit thing scene ended with the appearance of the anime’s logo, exceeept it wasn’t the actual logo! It was in the same design, color, font, and everything, but it said something different. It said “Nine School Tournament.” Which implies that there may just be a contest between nine magic high schools and two confirmed schools participating would be Tatsuya’s and this Red Head’s! That would also make us audience fantasize about the fight scene between Tatsuya and Red Head in the theme song to occur in that next contest- when they both probably make it to some finals of a magic duel contest. Or something of the sort.

They both have guns too ❤

Now one last picture before I move on…

Proceed to drool?

Now, other stuff that must be addressed in this episode!

1. The appearance of the Evil Yotsuba Aunt;

So her face is revealed to us after seeing just a quick glance at her physique when Tatsuya and Miyuki were discussing her some three episodes back. She looks so MUCH like Miyuki! Her hair does, as does her facial features- but those EYES. So evil, and neon PURPLE. Mesmerizing, and yet the kind of eyes that send shivers down your spine. The kind you know it’ll be a very bad move to get on the wrong side of, and to anger. Those kind of eyes.

Pluus she mentioned how Tatsuya’s Miyuki’s guardian. And on hearing that a few theories and ideas popped into my head.

One, Tatsuya’s actually a few years older than Miyuki, a twenty year old, and was adopted to protect her and serve as her body guard. I don’t think this is the case, but something else it, since the age difference isn’t something I expect from this anime, nor something I can see them doing.

Yet this is what I think happened. Two, Tatsuya’s as old as he’s portrayed to be, yet joins the military for whatever family reasons at a very young age. After proving his aptitude with his fighting magic, and sheer intelligence, he ascends the ranks at an alarming speed. It’s then when the Yotsuba family realize they need a body guard for Miyuki, possibly after a breech in security or an attack attempt/assassination attempt on her. Either way, they are somehow directed towards hiring one from the army, and after finding out about Tatsuya’s age and his skill, they adopt him.

They then, three, either decide that it’d be safest for Miyuki to go into hiding- no, wait. I think Miyuki herself decides this with Tatsuya after falling for him, and they run away, trying to hide their strong affiliations with this family, and to try having normal lives.

Or four, Tatsuya convinces the family that it’d be in the best intrest of the family if they let him take care of Miyuki by himself, away from the family, and under the pretense that she isn’t an ojou-sama.

Either way, they end up together, living a life their own, until now, where the Yotsuba family is thinking of intervening…

AND- that does however confirm one thing to me. The two really aren’t related. Or at least, that’s my theory.

2. Tatsuya finally acted awkward!

Near the end, he put his hand on Miyuki’s lower back. And he did so suuuper awkwardly to me. I thought he was going to put his arm around her waist, but he just didn’t. Too romantic? Perhaps…But then in the next scene, he  was directing her to walk away with him, and so I though he should’ve done so by putting his  hand on her upper back, on her shoulder blade region. Very normal. Usually a very authoritative and protective thing to do- not romantic. But he didn’t. Even attempting to grab her ass would’ve been more normal! (And he would’ve swooned.) But he just rested his entire hand on her lower back instead. What a Casanova.

3. This anime stole my AAA! Or at least copied it! =Y

They stole my AAA- The Awesome Asian Alliance- and made a carbon copy of it as the “Great Asian Alliance”. Pfft, the GAA. Grr. It’s MY super hero league, not yours! Damn them.

4. I sort of forgive them.

Not for stealing my League’s name. Nuh-uh. But for making us wait so looong for an epic fight sequence involving Tatsuya at his best. Granted, he wasn’t at his best, but he still actually used his gun to shoot someone, and more than ONCE.

Plus there was loads of cool swords action from Kirihara, the Magic Kendo Club Capt. I seriously forgave them just because I prefer the sword action over the guns.

And that brings me to a discussion, an announcement that is about another anime.

On second thought, I’ll just post that as a seperate post so as not to merge these two different anime together.

Be back soon~

*poof*

 

Permanent Nicknames

I have many nicknames. To list even all of them would be a tidious task. And yet here are but a few.

Frostie, Wattson, Dr. Grey I. Wattson, Ze, The Mint Chutney, Maud, Maudlal, Sunny, Sunny Bro, 003, Bee to the Live, Beelive Buddy, Bashir Sahab, and many others besides.

And yet I realize now, that if I do move back to Chicago, a vast majority of these nicknames will be lost to me, since the people I will then interact with in my daily life won’t be calling me by them anymore. Stuff that have to do with my actual name might still be there, but other things like the Bee to the Live, or Maud won’t and those will only be used if I explain the jokes behind them to my new friends. So, I will be loosing a small part of me…But to me, it’s a BIG part of me.

I can only hope that my weirdness shall be accepted by at least a few, and some nick names will be sustained. Like my middle name being Irish. Like my nicknames Wattson, and Frostie. If those things are sustained, I’ll be fine.

And pshaw, it’s not like you can’t call me The Mint Chutney. I’m a super hero for crying out loud. It ain’t a nick name. It’s an identity.

And with that, I poof. I feel better about it. Even if no one is calling me Maud, or Ze, or Sunny Bro, I always will be. It’s on the inside, in my heart. Like my Beelive rings are when I’m too lazy to put them on =P Beelive!

Cuz all I got to do is beliiieeve in me, Pokemon!! (Pokemon Master Quest Theme Song)

[I also changed my fb alternate name from Wattson to Frostie for the moment. Not sure if it’s a permanent change, or change just for the heck of it. I just want to be recognized as Frostie more. Since I am. And what with this Olaf thing going around too…I’m the first magical snowman, got it?!]

A Fantastic Comic Site- SatW

So I’ve been prowling the net for a website which displays cute, and interesting comics that need not be professional, detailed as much as something like the DC ones, or even with much of a plot.

And now, after so so SO long, I have finally come across a site worthy of mentioning, because it’s just SO impressive and perfectly what I was looking for!

I introduce to you, and I do hope you’ll enjoy it, the satwcomic.com ! It’s Scandinavia and the World comics =)

satw posre

The characters are countries, and they all have stereotypes attached to them- America is blonde and buff, meddling in everyone’s affairs, with very little knowledge on the European countries. Sweden is a typical nerdy character, with his hair slicked to one side, wearing glasses and a collared shirt at all times. Denmark is happy go lucky, has cute floppy hair, and is rarely ever seen without a bottle of beer in his hands. Finland is a mute, menacing man in a ski-hat (the kind that covers your ears?), and always carrying a knife.

scandinavia_and_the_world-300x133

 

^[left to right- America, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Yes, it is a thing, and a totally normal one at that, for Norway to be carrying a fish around everywhere.][And no, America is fair skinned, but in some comics he’s got a spray on tan that doesn’t look real one bit.]

The countries wear shirts with their flags on them, and trust me, sometimes even that inspires a short story, like this. It’s hilarious!

The stories are sometimes just random, inspired by real-life occurrences, or even historically enlightening! Myths and the Scandinavian’s perception of other countries is a constant theme in these sketches, and I love it. It’s fun, interesting, and funny.

^This is a panel that cracks me up everyyyy time xD That’s America as a child, and here, England is his father =3 How cute is that? (Canada is America’s brother.) This is what happens when England ignores America when he was showing him all sorts of things as a kid…The tea got what it had coming to it =/

the british aisles

 

^[I like to think of the two twins near the bottom as the Weasely twins =3]

The drawing style itself catches my eye. Possibly cuz it resembles mine so much. The character’s are,  usually lanky chibis like the power puff girls. Although that’s hardly fair, since this artwork is amazing, not over the top, but the simplicity gives it dignity and it has an admirable effect. It’s fantastic, and I spent all of yesterday stalking that site. I’ve read nearly all the comics that have been posted in the past three years…It’s adorable and I love it ❤

tumblr_ls37zyT8Xr1r1gengo1_500

I’d definitely recommend visiting this site every now and then to see what the Nordics are up to =) It’s worth it ^_^

Anyhoo, that’s all that there is towards this tiny post that I should have written yesterday….B-but, I was reaaaally absorbed in reading the comics then >.<
