Cloudy Revelations Revival

TADAIMA Minna-san!!!!

ただ今皆さん!

Anthy Himemiya (Utena TV)

Oi, it’s been over a year since I last posted. Honma ni, gomen nasai! As you know, last year I was finally able to go to Japan. I stayed for four months and had an absolute blast. I came back home just before Christmas, and just in time to witness the awesome fury of Winter 2010 when the East Coast got rocked by not 1 but 2 huge blizzards. It was beautiful. I learned a lot in Japan, brought a lot of stuff, watched some anime and even got to see one of my favorite rock bands, D, in concert in Osaka.

I’ve been home for about six months and now I think I’m ready to start this blog back up again. I’ve been playing around with some ideas to change it. I may had random posts commenting on daily life and politico stuffs but mostly, I’ll still be sticking to otaku related stuff including concert reviews, cosplay updates, con reports, and what not.

So, to just list a few things which I may elaborate on later…

  • Miyavi Concert in Washington D.C. on June 29 was fucking amazing. (I apologize for cursing but that’s the only English word I can use to describe the magnitude of that concert). Thank you Miyavi for visiting us and I hope we showed you how much we’ve been waiting for that. Please come see us again soon because we are effing ready to rock again and again and again!
  • After a four year hiatus, I’m headed back to Otakon at the end of the month. I won’t have any additional costumes ready for Otakon but I’m happy to be going back. It’s a little like dejavu. Last time I was there, Yoshiki was there. I’m returning, and so is Yoshiki and he’s bring Sugizo with him!!! I already know, this is going to a repeat of the L’Arc~en~Ciel LINE OF DOOM as everyone tries to get into the 1st Mariner Arena. I feel for the first time participants in the masquerade having to perform in front of all those people! ^^;
  • I’ve pre-registered for AUSA. Their headliner is 12012. FINALLY, the east coast is getting some loving from  Japanese bands. Thank you so much in advance!
  • The Fantasia of the Rose has a new addition but I’ll update that in the proper section.
  • The D concert in Japan, apart of the Tightrope Tour, was freaking amazing. As an uber D fan, I was very satified.
  • Speaking of the D concert, I’ll have to import my posts from LJ here so everyone can read them.

Okay, I think that’s it for now. I will apologize in advance. After studying Japanese for so long and living in Japan, Japanese is naturally thrown into all my sentences. Now, I speak Kansai-ben so its even worse. On top of that, I can only count in German now (since I took it last semester) and since I’ll be taking Russian this semester (finally), it’ll probably screw up my speech any more. Come on technology, spell check for me because I don’t know what I’m saying anymore!!!! LOL

Great to be back! Let the Cloudy Revelations continue in the new decade! 宜しくお願いします!

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!!!

Whoa (aka Status Update)

やれやれ…

いとも久しぶりですね.
済ません. 最近, 私は怠慢です.

It has been an INSANELY long time since I last updated. Thank you college life. This semester has been nothing like I thought it would be. I have a dissertation-like research paper that has been consuming a lot of my free time (and sanity) plus two other papers this semester and A LOT of stuff to read. On top of that, I’ve been working hard to submit my application to Kansai Gaidai in Osaka — by the way, I did finally get it out ^__^ — and I applied for a scholarship for said study abroad venture. When I haven’t been stressing about my papers or work on them, I’ve been asleep. LOL. So that all translates to not updating my blog since February….

はあ~~~~

Well, on the bright side, spring is here (though the temperatures around here can’t decide if it is late winter or mid-May yet) and there are only five more weeks of classes left in this semester. YAY!

I’m not going to promise anything, but if I somehow overcome my tendency to procrastinate and get this research paper done before its due (that would be a miracle XD) I might be able to do a little “spring cleaning” around this blog and FINALLY update the cosplay page. *crosses fingers*

引き続き倍旧のご厚情を賜りたく、切にお願い申し上げます. 20号年の春の季節に, 私は, 愛と学業と生におけるを頑張り続けています.

ZOMG! An Update 0_0

Eeep.

Adjusting to home seems to have taken a little longer than expected, ne? “Daijoubu, Daijoubu” as Abel Nightroad once said, teehee. Anyway, things have been going in a direction I did not foresee. I’m procrastinating on getting everything ready for Anime Mid-Atlantic. There was a slight mishap with my new costumes but hopefully it will all work out. Other than that, I’ve been pretty lazy. Slothfulness is not good. ^o^

Well, now that I’ve broken my silence, perhaps I can get this thing back up to speed. So I’ll start with a little note about the Vampire Knight manga. I know many people have read the whole thing online already years and years ago, but this month’s portion in Shoujo Beat was amazing. There is a reason why I love this series so much (Kaname-sama) and the anime is up to arc featuring “that woman”…. I couldn’t stand her and she’s even more annoying in the anime!!! (Which is weird since the anime is doing a good job with sticking to the manga plot-line)

Last week’s episode of Junjou Romantica (Ep. 9) was kawaii. I was slightly jealous of Hiroki-chan because I have a kanji dictionary that big and I can’t use it as effectively (if at all ^^; ) as he can. I know I know…. weird… but it’s the truth. Koi! ❤

That’s all for now. I’m styling my new wigs for the convention hoping everything goes well for this new cosplay contest AMA is having. It’s like the Hall Costume Contest but it’s for those of us who can’t sew (FINALLY). As soon as I get a few pictures of me as Anthy again, I’ll post them here in the Fantasia of the Rose section.

Ja ne!
