Fall 2011 Anime + Winter 2012 Preview

Saber in a suit is pretty moe
So, I finally caught up to everything from this season of anime.  I've been behind on all of the anime that I was following this season due to work during the school year :/  But now school's over, I've been able to catch up on all of the anime now.  This season, I followed Fate/Zero, Ika-musume, Haganai, UN-GO, Kimi to Boku, IdolM@ster, Mawaru Penguindrum, Mashiro Iro Symphony, Tamayura, Hunter x Hunter (2011), Chihayafuru, and Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.  In other words, I followed, 12 different animes.  Though some of them are from the previous season but that's aside the point.

Out of all of the anime that I've watched, the only ones that were universally good were Fate/Zero, and Chihayafuru.  Both of these I would recommend to people who have both watched anime and have not watched anime all too much.... Well maybe not Fate/Zero because of the background information that you need, but aside from that, it was great.  As for the other ones, there were a few that I enjoyed, but I'm not too sure whether people would have enjoyed.  For me, they be Kimi to Boku, IdolM@ster, and Tamayura.  Some people might not enjoy them mainly because they're slice of life.  They're not the most engaging and I'm pretty sure many people would be bored by them :/  But that's just me.

Merry Christmas + Remodeling

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or w/e if you don't celebrate anything around this time of year.  So winter break has started and I've been doing kinda productive things?  If nothing else, I'm moving along with some of the random things that I've wanted to do and learning some other random things as well.

If you haven't noticed, I've changed the header to something better (or at least I would like to believe so).  I ended up learning some CSS in order to be able to edit it the way I wanted to and after going through a couple of loopholes, I was able to fix it ^^  And now it looks pretty good I would say.  Later on, I plan on adding some sort of background to my blog.  What it will be, I have no clue but, I'll find out when I decide to make it.

So joys, finals are over and what not.  Now I get to be lazy and not do anything for a while.  Well... to be fair that's kinda what I did during finals week but let's not get into that.  

ok not really :/
During finals week, one major thing happened.  I got a new computer which is not made by Dell and therefore not a complete failure!  The really nice thing about this new laptop is that it's good enough that I can stream via something like the Black Magic Intensity Shuttle (which I suckered into getting), or record matches using that.  I'll write a post later detailing exactly how my setup is going to work, hopefully with pictures and what not so other people that may be interested will be able to find out.

Finals Week + UltraDavid

I hate studying :/
So now it's finals week :/ In other words, studying  =___=

So with all of this happening right now, I decide to... play games!  I turn out to get really distracted when I try and study and try and do other things like play games (or write blog posts loolol)  So yea, procrastination aside, there hasn't been much going on aside from that.  I have pretty much finished my essay about games in Japan and such though I have to say, it's really really unorganized.  Also has shitty transitions but I don't care enough to fix it.  On the other hand, I found fighting games really fun to write about so I wrote a lot more than I planned to which is nice.

Finals + Interview

What I should be doing...
So, today (Friday) was the last day of classes, so I'm pretty happy about that. I don't have to deal with not waking up on time for class and with classes that have participation points for going to lecture >_>. So now that's done, I just need to focus on finals and then off I go back home. I might end up playing through FF XIII through finals week if I can get suckered in, otherwise it'll just be typical slacking off while playing games.

North East Championship XII : Log

 Alright, so it's been a while since I've created this blog so it's about time I've actually posted something on this thing haha xD

So this weekend I went to North East Championship. I was randomly able to find a ride with Jon a couple days before the tournament. We left on Friday night at around 8 pm due to Jon having work and me having class. By the time we got to Philly, it was 1 am which isn't too bad considering our start time. I met Jon's friends, the people I roomed with, and was shown around the hotel and where all the games would be tomorrow. After that, we went back to the room where they were playing Tekken. Considering I don't really play Tekken, I decided to wander around outside and got to play some casuals in BB with Axis, Tonberry, and St1ckbug which was pretty fun. I went back to my room at like 4am at which point they were wondering where I had gone lol

A Blog!

So, I decided to randomly create a blog hopefully to better keep track of what I randomly do, and use this as perhaps a log of what I've done in college and hopefully further on.

So I guess the best way to start out now is to talk about who I am right now.  Currently I'm a sophomore at Carnegie Mellon University studying Electrical and Computer Engineering.  I like watching anime and playing games, in particular animu fighting games like Blazblue and Melty Blood.  I hope to improve in them and get better but whether that happens or not is another thing :/

Well I'm not really sure what else to write right now, but I'll probably update later with a post about games or anime at some point in the future ^^
