procrastination bump


Got a couple of programming assignments due; one for this friday and another for next friday, along with mid semester exam. I REALLY SHOULD GET STARTED AND CATCH UP ON THE LECTURES I SLEPT THROUGH. Eventually.


But in the mean time, we have Himawari bringing us another wonderful performance ヽ(´ー `)ノ

In other news; whining about the election. All choices are bad, they will all result in terrible things. Kind of glad that it has been delayed by either major parties failing to get more than half votes, but we all know they can’t be delayed forever. In any case; need to get out of here unless a miracle happens (spoiler: it won’t).


The new vocaloid, Lily; sounds a bit too deep for most of the covers out so far. Probably have to wait a while longer before someone figures out how to use her.

Finally saw the “Guest” button on SC2, started playing against the AI on the maps. It seems “Very Hard” is the setting you want for traditional starcraft AI difficulty, and “Insane” if you want them to hack. The rest are easy mode. Having said that, I haven’t found a reliable build for zergs to survive; maybe fend off one or two pushes, then proceed to get raped. Terrans have early reaper for harass with MM to defend, Protoss have pylon wall and a reliable void ray by 5:30 average, Zerg has to try for an early infestor (which may fail if they spread before fungal growth hits) or early gas for shitloads of banelings, or extremely fast hydra against void rays. Much more effort than the other races to stand on the same ground, basically.


Fukkireta all over your face. Seeing way too many covers of this all over the place.


Yes, still watching Amagami, and nishishishi is still the only reason to; Kaoru arc ended, next is the Sae arc, should have a lot more nishishishi, so I’m looking forward to it; in other animes, K-ON!! is getting depressing, but Yui will surely win Saimoe with this, that or Azunyan; Ookami is getting boring, and that Kuroko voice still annoys me; can’t bring myself to get past episode 7 of mayoi neko, train wreck in motion; should I get started on tits and zombies or duracell next?


Someone one one get a second season of Working!! please.

Absolutely nothing happens during Halloween.


Like most other commercialised holidays, absolutely nothing happens around my neighbourhood; or anywhere else that I see for that matter. Everyone continues doing whatever they do, not a single decoration or piece of candy can be spotted. The children harassing people are still there, but for entirely different reasons. And you know what; I’m fine with that, sure it’s one less memory per year, but it also equates to a lot less leftover junk.

On the other hand, Comiket 78’s going on right now, a biannual doujinshi convention; along with a bunch of other awesome stuff. There’s an event I’d like to see (minus the 5 hour waits in lines), but it’s over at Big Sight in Tokyo, so I won’t be there anytime soon.


They also have a bunch of vocaloid related stuff there, and composers like ryo also went to these conventions, not sure if he still does now that he’s mainstream, but you can find others before they become famous.

While I’m taking recommendations for Nico Singers, I’m also looking for some good writers/composers such as ryo~ Drop me a line or two if you know of some.


Angel Beats; watch it if you haven’t already.

Also, here, have a long overdue recommendation, another master piece by Jun Maeda (Clannad, Kanon, Air), set before the events of the anime, Angel Beats! – Heaven’s Door.

Saiyui 2010.

Not being able to eat solids sucks


After numerous months of not being sick (except for the whole pneumothorax crap) I’ve been hit with waves of nausea, headaches and projectile vomiting.  But FUCK THIS NOISE I’ve a project to do, and continued on to finish my work; which I did.  Now I’m slightly better but throat hurts so much that I can’t eat solids, which, by the way, is my favourite kind of food.


The World God Only Knows trailer; which seems to have absolutely nothing to do with anything~

A.k.a. Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai is finally going to be adapted into an anime in October; the cast so far:
Shimono Hiro (Kannagi’s Jin) as Keima
Itou Kanae (Railgun’s Ruiko) as Elsea
Yuuki Aoi (Kure-nai’s Murasaki) as Mio
Taketatsu Ayana (K-ON’s Azunyan) as Ayumi


A much more accurate depiction~ except not by key and not official.

Synopsis: Keima (main guy) is known on the internet as The Capturing God for his skills in “capturing” any girl in games; he’s only interested in the 2D world and doesn’t care about real girls. One day he gets an email with a contract to “capture” girls, which he took as a challenge and accepted.

It turned out to be a contract with a demon called Elsea, who asks Keima for help in capturing runaway spirits; these spirits hide inside the gaps of girl’s hearts, and the only way to force them out is to make the girl fall in love. Naturally Keima declines, but is forced to help due to the contract, which will remove both Elsea and Keima’s heads if they fail.

While we’re at it; Railgun OVAs and second season of Index by October, woo.

超!アニメビート


Or Chou! Anime Beat; someone get this for me, 14th track is by nayuta~

Unknown Girl cover by nayuta; she sings quite a few touhou covers and is featured in some official albums as well.

On the anime side, haven’t really been watching much of the huge backlog, only been keeping up with Amagami and K-On so far thanks to SC2 and projects. I like how they’re doing Amagami in arcs, was wondering how they would handle it; Morishima arc felt rushed, but there doesn’t seem to be much to it anyway.

Side note: 6 heroines, 4 episodes each, no episodes for Miya~ even though she’s the best.

And the first cover I’ve heard from nayuta which kept me hooked~ love the little tweaks she threw in here and there to make it more emotional than most covers who just sing it straight.

Starcraft 2 was alright until I finished the campaign; spoiler: RESTORATION BULLSHIT, only cure for the infested is a bullet in the head. Also lol @ making people pay thrice for one game with mods; rage @ no LAN and regions to raise sales, also banning e-sports without their blessings (which must cost quite a lot). While we’re at it, giant walker units, yeaaaaaaaaaaaah.

Aya Hirano’s nayuta’s version of the Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga, Haruhi themed; there’s also a Rika/Hanyuu and regular version by her.

Team projects are awesome; people love calling meetings then not showing up, some have the decency to tell you if it’s cancelled, others just don’t bother at all. Then when you do see them, they make no progress, MEETING ADJOURNED.

Please don’t say you’re going to blow your brains out all over the ceilings and walls~

So I should probably do some covers for other nico nico artists while I’m at it.

Black Rock Shooter whar?


Going to be released sometime today, apparently.  HIGH EXPECTATIONS, DON’T DISAPPOINT ME.

In other news; onemanga is killing itself, while scanlations continue to shoot through the roof.  Quality may vary.

In real life: Play more games, save the world.  I do agree that you would eat less if you play; but the electricity used would counteract any benefit gained from sustained starvation.  Otherwise, her suggested methods = willing mental conditioning; if applied properly it may be beneficial, but has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

And now zombie time.
