But over I all I hope this new year will be a good one, worries aside. I feel like moving over to dreamwidth will be a fresh start for me and I hope it is for others as well.

Kind of forgot about this for a while, but I've been working on my anime backlog. I finished Samurai Warriors and over all my feelings were okayish?

[Bad username or unknown identity: cut for unedited rambling]
I did like focusing on the little things that led up to Osaka castle and seeing Yukimura's exile. I kind of hate that they downplayed Kanetsugu the way they did though and also sometimes felt like Nobuyuki's was a little... I don't know, too perfect? Like he's not always right, but I got tired of him in someways. Like I both enjoy the sanada bros and I'm getting leery of how the series is promoting them at the expense of everything else.

Also Hidetada, I get what they were trying to do with his character and the idea of him being a pacifist at heart was interesting, but I didn't feel that was foreshadowed right. His arrogance comes off like arrogance instead of arrogance used to cope with an inferiority complex.

Masamune wasn't utilized well at all either. He's just there to be an extra antagonist and sneer at people. We don't get see his idealism. His motivation in the later half of the games post sekigahara is building a new and better world. I don't feel like we saw that much.

I have mixed feelings on the girls, because they didn't get to fight nearly as much as I wanted to. It often felt like they were there to wait on the guys, though Kunoichi did get to fight in the end a bit. And I do actually like how they handled her feelings for Yukimura compared to in sw3 where they first went full force on it. I also I liked seeing Nene pop up here and there, doing things.

I am not familiar with Naomasa's character having not played his game yet, but I liked the little bit we had with him. That said, I also felt what we saw was a little too limited. It also would have been good to have him reference Naotora a little.

Overall, I think it's an anime that needed to be A. Longer and B. Have a few more characters in, as well as being a little more true to the storylines of characters they did have in. But it was enjoyable enough otherwise.

I need to get through the rest of season 2, but man I have thoughts. Also I will say that while a large part of tumblr fandom is being tumblr fandom, I am enjoying the crack that is Lancexfanon!lotar. Like I don't like it as a vehicle for klance or vulnerable, insecure Lance who would easily betray his team, but that's just me. Silly flirting shit though, yes.

So not much has been happening this week, but I did start reading Eyeshield 21 and so far this is incredible. Like Hiruma alone is worth reading it for. I've never seen a good guy character like this, one who is kind of a huge dick, but so enjoyable you don't mind? I am excited for when Mamori actually does find out Sena is Eyeshield 21 though and disappointed that apparently the anime doesn't go that same route.

But this is a surprisingly fun and engaging sports manga and I've learned more about football form this than I have in like decades of being alive?

Also in non-manga news, I'm reading Soulless by Gail Carriger. I wasn't sure I was going to like it at first, because the writing felt, I don't know, awkward and Alexia was that kind of special that can get annoying. But she's growing on me and the universe is become interesting, as is the mystery at the heart of the book. The romance is a little silly, but enjoyable as well.

So I'm in chapter 3 doing side quests and thoughts so far:
potential spoilers under cut, but probably not much )

Gonna do it. Gonna do some fic challenges. Maybe then I'll fic like I used to. I remember doing it a lot more before I fell heavily into rp, but I used to keep up with it and my games.

But games are unsatisfying right now and I need to get back on track. I've been writing about a page a day, but this will be a good change of pace to have some motivation. Even if I'm writing small fandom stuff.

but when has that ever stopped you, Joy?

I'll probably be trying to take up some challenges to get more variety, but lol... otherwise this is just all Makai Ouji stuff.

Since I decided to start using this thing again, because I am sheeple, let's throw a post in here. Work is... work again today, but this week I am going to make a good, good go of continuing my goal of getting five servings of fruits and veggies. I almost nailed it last week, but I also have a better idea of what I'm doing now.

But god, I'll say something more substantial later in the week when my brain is on right. Also, wow... these icons are so five years ago. How time changed.

Modifying this and just doing it in one go, since I can't see some of these answers meriting more than a couple lines:

1-2 It's all about character aka I have feeeeelings )

3-8 Super vaguely related to game mechanics )

9-11, proud shipper here )

12-16 Shallownessss )

I had a superhero/mostly Marvel viewing week of sorts consisting of Thor, X-Men: First Class, Iron Man and Megamind. Which was nice, though rental prices are ridiculous. But well, thoughts...

For more info on this anime, because I am lazy and hate explaining...

But this is really the kind of mindless fluff I love sometimes. The characters are cute, it's incredibly silly and the romantic hijinks, while not my favorite part of the show, are still fun to watch. It's more on the parody side, like Ouran, but takes it's self less seriously. It manages to be slashy, while having the canon het pairings it's leaning towards still being enjoyable (though I really think Yuji needs to run far, far away from Shouko for ever.) Akihisa is really enjoyable as a main character and is easily my favorite, tied with Yuji.

My only real complaint is that the ending felt waaaay too status quo in a way that was annoying, even if I liked the sentiment behind it. And on a lesser note, it is VERY cliche in places, but in a way I found fun, since it's not really trying to be serious or deal.

But this is was a nice series to work out too. And just chill out watching in general. But yes, I shall be watching all the anime and putting down all the (boring) thoughts.

Been a rough few days to have as a prelude to spring semester. Both healthwise and emotions wise. The emotional stuff, well, I just have to kind of accept it. The physical stuff... I'm working on it. It doesn't bode very well though that I'm hurting just as badly as I was when I started in fall. I really don't need any of this to become a "thing."

But yes it is classes time. I am both excited and afraid. My schedeul is going to be something like this: 11:00 to 8:20 Monday, 11:00 to 4:50 Wednesday and 11:00 to 11:50 Friday. Not including the 20 minute drive too. I'm also going to be working on the off days, so... I will still be around, just as usual, more in the evenings/afternoons/not as much on mondays.

I might be a little stressed this week as I get things together/sort out some money issues, but hopefully it'll all go well otherwise.
