A Quest at the Mall

This all happened yesterday, but I was too sleepy to type this entire story out.

My mom needed to buy my cousin a birthday present, so I tagged along. That’s literally how this story starts. I was just bored at home, and felt like going outside. (I know, how crazy of me, right?)

This turned into a quest very quickly, as soon as we climbed onto the escalators. See, my mom got onto it, but these two aunties managed to get between us, and so I was behind them. So it’s my mom, then them- a granny, a mother, and a little kid- and then finally me.

The kid is like on drugs or something- he was insanely hyper!- and had obviously just had over a spoonful of sugar, and was jitterbugging around, jumping up and down, constantly in motion. Then, he falls, drags Mama down with them, down a few steps to where I was standing, and dammit, I got stabbed in the ankle by that evil auntie’s heel!! I got stabbed in the ankle by an auntie’s heels!! I was also pushed, cuz damn she had some momentum going for her, and nearly slipped down the escalator (it was going up.) but since I’d gripped the railing thingie just in time, I was safe. After we got off the escalator, I gave them at least a 7 meter radius, and walked around them to my mom. That auntie was evil =/

No joke, after the kid did all that, I was expecting at least an ‘I’m sorry”, SOME form of an apology, but no, she just scolded him playfully, with the most lyrical fake voice ever, to make it sound like she was the best mother ever, scolding her kid for misbehaving, right in public, cheers to her for being so reasonably disciplined, and all that. I mean, you could HEAR the smugness in her voice, like she was thrilled to be in the spotlight- her time to shine. Bleh, desperate for attention. Another thing- who goes, just for the heck of it, shopping in heels? If your out with friends, or it’s a date, and you want to look nice for and to impress the people you are going with fine, but if you’re going with your son that’s barely capable of putting one foot in front of the other- wait, that more aptly describes his clumsiness, not his age…since he wasn’t that young. Son that’s around six or seven? and your mother, who obviously doesn’t care about what color she’s wearing so long as it’s all warm? Are the heels really necessary then?

And then, on our way up to this store Breakout, I noticed for the first time ever who was at the mall. Usually, I just notice if there are a lot of people or not. I don’t bother to specify and notice- hey, there are loads of old people today, or something of that sort. But today I did, and there were waaayy too many kids for comfort.

And in Breakout, bam!, it’s full of little kids! It was terrible, I was trying reaaally hard to avoid them.

Oh, and don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate kids. Well, I don’t particularly like them either…I guess it’s like people, if I like them I do, but that doesn’t mean I like all those of that age group…something like that? It depends which kid, and I’ll give you an opinion. I might love one, hate another, and just find the other three boring. But otherwise, I don’t dislike all kids in general. Kind of neutral about it? But I do have a general they-should-get-lost-ew-why-are-they-here?! attitude towards most kids HERE. That’s cuz parents let them do whatever the SHIT they want to do. And this story will explain what I mean. Since I don’t just mean that the parents will toss them their iPhones and give them their own by the age of five, I mean- well, you’ll get it soon enough.

So I’m standing towards a corner of the store featuring the guys’ stuff, cuz I was helping my mom pick something out for my brother. We finally decided on this hoodie that was stripped. But we were arguing on the color. They had this blue an green stripped one, and a navy blue and yellow one. I found the yellow one cooler, and I think my Que has waaayy too much blue and green in his wardrobe as it is. But, as we stand there debating it out, there’s this mannequin right next to me. And this little girl trying to climb it. Yes, she was in fact trying to CLIMB it. And her dad’s like right there, and he doesn’t even bat an eye, until she along with the mannequin come tuuumbling down, and she just wriggles away, jumping towards the next closest mannequin, and tries to get to the top of that one. The mannequin, explodes into an assortment of limbs on impact with the ground, right next to where I’m standing, and I narrowly avoid being impaled with a pink plastic arm.

See? Forget parenting, there’s no CONTROL over these kids here, and by the time they get to something like five, they will be untamable BEASTS. Fear them, and run. That’s the best advise I can give. When forced in their company, be wary, very very wary. But don’t flinch or show any indication of anything other than happiness and rainbows- they smell fear!

And that was my adventure at the mall. Them kids were out to get me O.o

Giving Toradora Another Shot

HeadStructureToradoraPic3

Remember how when I was sick one night, I did a few things for apparently no particular reason? Yeah, well, I did two things that night related to anime.

One, I started watching Bleach. I just did, I don’t know why, Brian the Brain said to =/ So I just…did. Plus, after hearing the opening song, I liked it, and just actually watched the entire first episode.

Two, I rewatched Toradora. I’ve already seen it once, and some of it’s second season, but I really hated it. It was waaay back, in eighth grade, when I started watching loads of anime. So I rewatched it, just like that.

22125

But now, if I think back on it, maybe there was reason behind my doing so, only I didn’t notice until I thought about it later. Or rather, I’m finding or trying to come up with reasonable excuses/reasons to have watched it again if I didn’t like it in the first place.

The first time I watched it, I found the animation reaaally cute. And I loved the Pre-Prada theme song =P Buuut after I finished the entire first season, and had seen a few episodes of the next one, I realized why I wasn’t enjoying it much. I was still just waiting for something exciting and unexpected to happen, something unnatural to happen. Something fantastical, something magical, and I knew then that I wasn’t going to get that from this anime, since it’s a completely different genre. That’s when I realized there was no point in wasting my time on something I wasn’t enjoying, and what I was waiting to happen never would. So I dropped it, moved on to more magical and fantasy anime.

Toradora

And now I came back to it. It’s supposed to be a romantic comedy, with a bit of drama…and I was up to giving it another go. Not thrilled about it, but willing to try it again. I wanted to see if my tastes had changed, or if maybe some level of maturity had taken place from the me now and the me in eighth grade who couldn’t stand it.

And I did stand it. I watched the entire first season. It’s alright. I’m not in love with the show, but it’s much more tolerable, sometimes amazing, and not nearly as bad as I remembered it. It’s alright, and I’m glad I gave it another chance.

Guess I haven’t just changed as a person from back then, but now I’ve apparently changed somewhat in my taste for anime too?

Nah, I guess I’m just more tolerable towards these kinda slow romantic animes now. Before, I couldn’t stand it.

Huh. Guess change just does happen. But no one says that changing is the same thing as growing up, cuz I know THAT ain’t happening for quite a whiiiile~!

And now, just to prove my point, I am going back to watching Beyblade ❤

Zero no Tsukaima~

Ze Familiar of Zero!

zeronotsukaima_01

One of my faaavourite anime that I started when I was in eighth grade ^_^

zero-no-tsukaima

[I started watching anime a lot when I was in eighth grade- that’s when I got hooked onto it! And that is also the year in which I saw the most anime I had ever seen =) ]

Okaay, so Zero no Tsukaima is a wonderous fantasy anime with just the right amount of comedic romance to easily fall into my ‘Must watch’ anime lists =3

Zero_no_Tsukaima_3

 

^See what I mean by comedy? Well, I didn’t know these terms before when I watched it the first time, but Louise (ze young tiny pink haired lass) is a tsundere (did I spell is right?? I think so..) which would be Japenese/Otaku talk? for a character that rarely expresses their love or like for anything, always get embarrassed when it’s brought up, and contradict themselves about it- that is, deny they like/love that thing/person. So if Louise is a tsundere, and falls for Saito (cuute coolio Japenese guy in a blue hoodie), then she’s going to blush furiously all the time, stutter, get embarrassed, and deny everrr liking him, and say she hates him. But she doesn’t =)

I mean, lookie, isn’t Hiraga

 

 

Saito cuute?! He is one of my favourite characters, so bear with all these pictures of him now ^_^

^This last one’s a deviant art picture, fan art, by a fedyfaust, I think. Cheers to him/her for making it! =)

Louise also has one of the damn coolest names possible. She easily wins Ze Coolest Full Name fictional Character Award from me, at least. Her full name is- wait for it while I google it, yes it IS in fact that long- Louise Françoise de la Baume le Blanc de la Vallière~! Mhmm, best name ever, am I right? xD

Ok, now this anime is the story of how Louise, bullied and cruelly nicknamed ‘Zero Louise’ by her classmates since her success rate with all spells and anything associated with magic has been, well, zero, gets fed up with all the teasing and decided that for her Second Year at school for mages exam, is going to summon the most beautiful, most graceful, and strongest familiar ever. And that’s where the name comes in, cuz she summons- The Familliar of Zero!

Now, utterly and completely humiliated since she summoned a mere human instead of something spectacular like a dragon, or a griffin, or a Charmeleon on Steroids (I kid you not, there is in fact one.) she summons something with even less magical potential than hers- a human, which has none!

kkkkk

 

^Man, Kirche should’ve hit the B button while she still could…wait, I’m actually veryyyy glad she didn’t. I mean, how many of use really want to see a Charmander on steroids? O.o

But Louise still completes the ceremony to make a binding contract with her new familiar. Here’s  a snapshot of that. Cuz if it’s any sort of magical ceremony- there’s GOTTA be a kiss involved. It’s only expected of a Japanese anime. But come on, what about the girl who had the Charmeleon on Steroids?! Did she kiss that fat lizard??! Ewwww!

At this point in the story, I should explain what happened. Louise summoned Saito from Japan, Earth and he got transported to this new world- Helgia or something of the sort- and this country, with it’s fabulous two moons eternally apart of the skyline (one huge blue, a smaller cute pink. Subtle message?). Now Saito, Japanese teenager, only knows Japanese. These people are speaking something else. And Louise, when having to deal with him flipping out- seeing that Charmeleon on Steroids going to freak the best of us, right? And two moons in the sky when there’s supposed to be one sun? Although that’s a minor detail to the damn lizard on fire.- and screaming, Louise expertly and maturely decides that this is the perfect time to test a silence spell, and keeping her zero percent success rate intact, she somehow manages to have him speak and understand their language (which, because it’s an anime, shall obviously be Japanese, despite where in space they are. I mean, even the Namakians knew Japanese…They should’ve at least explained it, like in Doctor Who..).

BUT- plot twist/Some Spoilers- Louise doesn’t suck at magic! Whaaat? And Saito IS one legendary familiar- Gandalfr (yep, he’s a Gandalf with an R =/ ) but I won’t explain. That you’ll have to understand by watching the anime =D It’s really amazing, and totally must be tried out if you like fantasy, magic, romance, comedy, feels, war, and sooome ecchi =S (I hate ecchi, but it’s there…here, at least as far as I’ve seen so far, they just show loads of cleavage…so ecchi related to boobs, nothing else, thank god. So far >.> )

I still haven’t finished it? What-whyyy? Because, it’s got four seasons (the author died after that so it ended sooner than it otherwise would have.), and I watched up til somewhere in the middle or beginning of the third, then dropped it, for whatever reasons back then. Now, I watched from season 1 and 2, all in a looong go, (a few days, please. Not a marathon.) and now I’ve stopped cuz I got sick and did something stupid, anime related stupid, before I started off with season 3.

Here’s some cute fan art again >w<

^(Kirche should be properly dark skinned >.> What’s with changing her complexion?!)

Although this was probably a bit more than a week ago, I never got round to posting all this on Zero no Tsukaima…I was reaaaaally hooked on watching my anime rather than write about it… oopsies =P (then I also started a new anime, not a rewatch like this one- Hunter x Hunter, the 2011 remake, and I wanted to write an initial take on that first…so I did, but then I couldn’t post any of the pictures, for some reason they weren’t uploading, and that infuriated me to no end. Which put me in a foul mood to actually get round to posting this =P)

And here would be a few more pics cuz I did download and save them, so hence I must post them =3

images (7)^Hahahahahahahaha xD See, Louise refers to Saito as a dog and initially treats him as a pet since he’s her familiar- which is usually a magical animal- and this is from one of the endings, where Saito the dog reaches a paw out to his lovely and dazzling little master =3

^I ship Saito and Louise, they’ve had my support from the beginning =) Saito x Louise ❤

saito

 

^This is actually a super important scene in the anime. It’s in a boat. And it’s-spoiler- where Saito confesses! ❤

Ok, that’s all mah pics, and now I gotta update a bit more on what I’ve been doing with anime ^_^ Since these winter holidays I’ve been doing nothing but watch anime =P

And there’s still that thing I did when I was sick yesterday…

Should explain that now. But Fiiiiirst, finish that Hunter x Hunter post! Since all these pictures were uploaded with no problems, those should too now ^_^ Wish me luuuck =3

Buh-byyye~!

Crazy, Chocolate, and Cookies,
-Ze

ps.
if you thought that was a lot, wait til you see how much I’ve got to type for HxH…I mean, it was supposed to be a first reaction kinda thing, but now I’ve seen the first 80 episodes, I’ve got a looot more to write about =)

 

 

The Deceiving Tiny Thumbnail and Results Freakout

as i have been doing very expertly recently, ive been procrastinating a loooot now a days. im on an unexpected holiday, what do you want me to do? enjoy this while it lasts, since once i get busy again, ill post here less. but, ohz well =P

So was watching youtube videos agaaain…and i clicked on a video with  a cute guy in the thumbnail pic, and he is prettyyy cute =3 sure, its embarrassing that i actually started watching his videos just cuz i think hes cute, (deal with it, im just openly shallow that way =P 😉 ) but am i really the only one? im sure im not the first girl to do that =D admit it, someone out there has been doing this waaaay longer (and possibly sooner than i have.). and today was the first noticable, rememerable time too. though im sure ive done it before too, its just that whoevers videos they were were just not funny, or he turned out to be ugly, or just not as cute as i thought. Dont be deceived by the tiny thumbnail as i was! …and the dudes name is DamonFizzy, and he makes some pretty hilarious stuff =) now, id like to see what future-me has to say when she searches him on youtube 4 years later…thatd be interesting 😉

And i just watched the first two episodes of Pretty Little Liars S-II (season 2) and i love it. its just so interesting, and totally a teen drama. but usually it scares, and creeps me out when i watch it at night. i just get paranoid, cuz i over think things. bleh, but thats just me =P and i really wanted to watch season 2 as soon as i had finished one, but i my stupid biased internet wouldnt let me. so i couldnt and thus i didnt. (my parent would never let me watch something that wasnt rated ‘everyone’. im not even allowed to watch the simpsons. and my dad wont let me get Victorious (from nick) season 2 either -.- ) and so when it started working on fire fox, i watched two episodes, even though its night time. hee hee.

i got into a sorta fight with  my brother yesterday, and now were not talking. otherwise id force him to come protect me and id watch more. oh well. he got me angry, made me cry, but i dont even understand why i cried. in the end, i realized that im the only one that everrrr says sorry and puts it all behind us, pretending it never happened. he needs to learn to say sorry, even if its not his fault (not saying it isnt here). i mean, thats a pretty prominent reason why he doesnt have any friends. barely any. more on my poor lil bros life later. back to meee. i am, after all, the star of this blog =P i kid you not, i am not that self centered, and shallow =)

Oh, and this saturday (day after tomorrow) i am getting  my midterm result. and its a PTA (parent teacher attendance. thats what i call it, but its supposed to be a ptm, meeting. bleh. too mainstream =P jk, no, im so not a hipster ^_^ ). so now i freak out about my result, GET it with my parents behind me and peeking over my shoulder, and then get dissed by my teachers for being too distracted in class/doodling too much/ talking too much, and then come home to *sigh of relief, its all overrrr* oh wait its not! cuz  my parents shall now yell and lecture me, and send my off to a thousand tutions!! oh nooo! well- worst case scenario at least. i might have some hope after all =/

And then on Tuesday, i get my official cambridge result. eeeps. so scared about my stats result! soooo freaaaking ouuut!

…..aaaand i still havent finished my hws yet -.- most of them i have yet to start. huzzah, go me -___________-

anyways, ill just do ONE more descriptive post, cuz otherwise i wont tell it right, and then oooffff to bed! i cant wait. wait for me, my love! (the bed, obviously =P )

Frosty’s Chilling.

^you so did not see that coming. i know it. 😀
