The Time Has Come

Well… it seems I have really let this blog go to pot for the past two years or so. After much deliberation, I think it is about time to nix this site for good. I don’t necessarily want to delete the posts so I might let is hang around on the internet as a zombie for a while. I am in the process of coming up with a new blog with a whole new purpose. It should go live soon.

 

With that, goodnight Cloudy Revelations. This truly is your final fantasy.

Hiatus

This blog is going on hiatus for a few months as I prepare to study abroad. I have another journal set up just for that occasion. Therefore, you can find most of my principle blogs @ crliveosaka.livejournal.com However, if there is something big anime/game/music related going down in Japan while I’m there, I’ll cross post stuff here too.

Alright, see you in the new year!!!

And so another awesome anime magazine bites the dust. VIZ is canceling Shoujo Beat, the magazine that took the place of Animerica Extra in 2005.

DUDES! I don’t care how bad the stupid economic situation gets, this is just getting stupid!!!! Now I have nothing to read with no Shoujo and no Newtype. I’m afraid to subscribe to OtakuUSA out of fear of that magazine calling it quits too. GAH! I don’t even know what to say about this right now…. I’m too upset.

What are your opinions???

I guess, at least, VIZ isn’t going out of business and the titles published in the magazine will continue to be released as graphic novels but still… T_______________T

School is in Session

Yep, school has started back up and what I thought was going to be a pretty quiet semester will be anything but. Two 10 page papers, two presentations, a two page essay and a 25-page paper. YAY. -____-

Besides workload, things are okay. I’ve had some surprisingly good food, I’ve made more international friends, and we have a mouse in our dorm room. For the moment, my roommate and I are deciding between the name Templeton and Chu-Chu. We’re going to try to catch and release him because we don’t want him in our room. However, we felt that despite his odd presence, he deserved a name. ^_^

There’s not too much else to report other than I won’t be going to Katsucon this year which may mean no cons at all (if everything works out… maybe). Yet, I can’t wait until Sakura Matsuri time!!!! I have a feeling this year will be just as great or even better as last year!

Happy New Year

With a little more than two hours left until 2009 arrives, I just want to take this time to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!!!

2008 was full of ups and downs, good times, bad times and for me personally, some really ugly times. I have learned a lot this year and I have a lot of great memories too. I’ve made new friends, I saw Versailles in concert, finished another semester in school and grew from the ugly times in the year. Hopefully next year will be just as exciting and not as distressing as this year. Hopefully the world will get its act together and we can progress forward positively. Let’s all make the very most of 2009 and have lots of fun. Here’s hoping that this blog will continue to grow and that you will keep reading it. Have a very safe and happy New Year!

明けましておめでとう!

~ Cloudy Star

… If you’ve ever seen the Utena movie, then you know what I’m talking about.

I HAVE FINALLY FINISHED ALL MY CLASSES!!! W00t! But the hardest part remains. Finals begin this week and although I don’t have one tomorrow (Tuesday) I have one a day until next Tuesday. Wednesday is Philosophy; Thursday is Japanese; Friday is Geology and Monday is History. After that, six beautiful weeks of FREEEEEDOM!

It has been a very interesting school year full of ups and more recently downs. Hopefully, it will end on a high note. *crosses fingers*

To anyone else still taking finals as well, ganbette kudasai!

It’s Almost Time…

The school year is almost over. All I have to do is survive tomorrow and I will be free. I mean, yes, finals are still next week but classes will be over at last. W00t!

T-Mode Secured

Well, it looks like I’ll be going to T-Mode this September for sure. Not only did I get a 3-day pass but I paid a little extra for an otaku passport. This thing sounds pretty sweet; it has awesome perks like VIP treatment, brunch with the guests, discount off of next year and more. 0_0 Yeah… I don’t wanna get too excited about it until I understand fully what this passport allows the lucky 25 holders to do but it just sounds pretty awesome. I’m really happy I get to go; I’m looking forward to T-Mode just as much as AnimeUSA a month after that (October). Of course, I’ll be in full Anthy regalia for both cons and both of them are having balls this year. ^_^ Viva la Anime Conventions!
