Ikkitousen

Filed under: anime, deviantART — Tags: — staappy @ 4:00 pm

Synopsis: Seven schools in the district of Kanto are constantly ‘at war’ with each other, and the students within – both male and female – have become skilled fighters and constantly battle with rival schools. Their lives and fates are guided by strange jewels, called magatama, that contain the spirits and destinies of warriors from the Sangokushi period (the Three Kingdoms period of China). One girl, Sonsaku Hakufu, has recently moved to Japan and is apparently destined to unite the schools as her counterpart united seven countries long ago. But, like all heroes, there is a darker side to her fate, and as always there is a constant struggle by those around her to break the chains of their own destinies and make their own lives. -Source: ANN

Before I begin, I would like to say that this is NOT a review. It’s just a NTS about the Ikkitousen series.

Happy Birthday, Congee Ow!

Okay, this is (hopefully) the last rambling from me of the month.

First and foremost, happy birthday to my dearest Congee Queen! I’m glad I got to spend time with you this year for your birthday! ヽ(´∀`)ノ

Summer’s finally here…

Filed under: life, miscellaneous — Tags: , — staappy @ 11:19 am

…for me anyway. While most people are off in other parts of the country/world, I’m fresh out of summer school, and currently bumming around at home. So what do I have planned? Nothing. Which is quite sad, considering how I look forward to summer every year.

The good news that I can brag about is that I have officially entered into j1m0ne‘s RSS feeds on Google Reader, as has OtaAgg. (*^―^*) Hopefully we won’t disappoint. (*゜ω゜) At this point, we were considering on doing a joint blog…what the name would be, who knows. We haven’t gotten that far yet. XD

Since I have nothing better to do today, I shall make this a boring update of my life. (At this point, you click the little ‘X’ box at the top, right-hand corner of your browser.)

Animelo 2008

Filed under: music — Tags: — staappy @ 8:12 pm

I’m a sad fan from Canada who only wishes she understands Japanese so she can have an excuse to fly over to join the crowd in the upcoming Animelo Summer Live 2008 event. From what I see and hear, they decided to split Animelo this year into two dates, and it looks like the performers list has balanced out for the both days. I feel bad for those who can only go for one of the two days, I wouldn’t want to miss either of them if possible. (*´Д`*)

I downloaded the 2008 theme song, titled ‘Yells~ It’s a Beautiful Life’. A bunch of other bloggers have updated posts about Animelo, so go check them out. Seiyuu3 has extra tickets, so if you want to get yours, message them quick! Danie’s shopping log has kindly provided self-translated romanji lyrics, as well as some screenshots of the PV. I’ve had bad experiences ATM with pingbacks on WordBlog, so I’m not gunna be linking to specific posts in a while. (;д;)

Go purchase the CD here! I would if I had moola and a credit card. Actually, I’d order a lot of things if I could. Hence why I’m on a mission to hunt down a store that sells legit Jmusic.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAREST SISTER!

Filed under: life, miscellaneous — Tags: — staappy @ 11:59 am

So this is the first of the upcoming ending month of July babies of this year.

Tanjoubi omedetou gozaimasu, onee-sama!
生日快樂,家姐!

Hope you had a fabulous dinner with your F4 today. I’m sad that I didn’t get a chance to celebrate your birthday today with you this year, but we can always do something together to make up for it! :)

You are now one year closer to match your maturity level…or maybe they’ll never match up. :P
Love love! <3

I’m so cool, I’m posting this one minute before your birthday ends. :D

Murder Princess (OVA)

Filed under: anime — Tags: , , , — staappy @ 12:38 am

Synopsis: In the land of Foreland a coup d’état has occurred and the princess, after witnessing the death of the King, is on the run. She meets with battle-hungry bounty hunter Falis, and with a twist of fate they both switch souls, making Alita the maid of the now princess Falis. Named for her bravery in confronting the enemy as ‘Murder Princess’, Falis must continue to be the princess as well as confronting any new opponent that comes to her way. -Source ANN

I first picked up Murder Princess after browsing around AAN and Wiki seiyuu profiles. After my recent Fullmetal Alchemist phase, I wanted to watch more stuff from Paku Romi, aside from Kaiba and Ultraviolet: Code 044, which hasn’t finished subbing yet. I watched the first ep, and although it wasn’t much, I really loved to hear Romi’s voice, and Koshimizu Ami’s. (I still can’t see the seiyuu connection between Paraietta (Simoun), Horo (Wolf and Spice), and now Mirano/Arita-hime.)

When I heard Toyoguchi Megumi’s voice in the first ep, my heart fluttered and went, “OMG it’s an FMA recast with Ami instead of KugiRie!” The voice she used to play Seshiria had such a Revy tone to it, I had to keep watching. I thought, “Hey, since it’s only six episodes long, might as well watch it.” And I’m glad I did.

Summer 2008

Filed under: life, miscellaneous, movies — Tags: , — staappy @ 11:54 pm

It’s finally the weekend. Thank goodness there’s only 3 days of summer school left until my exam. Technically, it’s only one full day, as Monday is presentations for our ISU and we’re going to the Science Center on Tuesday to watch a film.

In other news, happy belated birthdays to everyone born in July, and happy early birthday to those coming up. My sister finally got her G1 after much hassle and haggle on the parental parts. She also got a full-time job, so now it’s her turn to buy me stuff. :D

After next week, summer is officially here for me.

Fresh Start

Filed under: miscellaneous — Tags: — staappy @ 2:04 am

I’ve deleted all my school-related posts, and I’ve decided to move from my Xanga blog and officially revive my Blogger account, and switched to WordPress. It was too much work and it was hard to maintain, due to my inability to efficiently use html codes, and it doesn’t have any useful links at all. I never really liked Xanga anyway, so I also had a LiveJournal account. I mostly blogged about personal stuff on Xanga, and school-related events on LJ, just because of the different audience (if I have one). Recently, I’ve been writing up more seiyuu and anime related things, thanks to a friend of mine, Soul’s Rhapsody. She also just moved from Xanga to Blogger WordPress, more or less for the same reasons as me; go ahead and check her out. For future (and past) reference, you’ll hear me talk about her a lot…either as souls rhapsody or as OtaAgg.

SEIYUU FTW!!

>>Oh, um. Congrats to Spin for wining the EuroCup 2008.<<

To my surprise, I found out through countless YouTube clips that seiyuu are some of the most down-to-earth celebs out there. Compare even the seiyuu idols, the likes of Hirano Aya, and Chihara Minori, to those of Hollywood fame, like, iuno, Angelina Jolie, Brittany Spears. Spears is a wreck, who knows what happened to her…just look at her sister. Jolie is anorexic like heck, and there’s no way you can raise so many kids to live out their lives and their heritage in your household (coming from an anthropologists’ point of view).
