Damn my building's s*** internet connection!

i.e. lost my internet connection yet again...5th time this year, and counting...

I've been busy...I still am...if fact, I should be working on an essay...but I haven't quite figured out what to write yet, even if I have done all the reading...anyways...

It's Sakurai Takahiro (櫻井孝宏)'s week at seiyuu. (Why is Advent Children taking so long to be released?!?)

Collapse )

Evangelion news: We now know why Evangelion manga chapters are released so infrequently... Collapse )

I haven't quite finished ranting about GSDestiny yet, but the monthly Gundam power rankings announced on Gunota Headlines on April 26 were kinda interesting...Collapse )

Currently watching Sukisyo Collapse ), and I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would. It's funny, especially Sora XD (never expected Midorikawa Hikaru to voice a character like this!) - but the thing that amused me most so far (seen up to ep.6) was in ep.3, where Sunao kept pointing out how greedy Sora was being; it's ironic - Hoshi Souichiro's lj community is _harahetta_ (腹減った)...I find strange things amusing...

WHAT?!?


Manganews reports that a manga-adaptation for Tim Burton's The Night Before Christmas is being released. (Listing). If it's from Disney, shouldn't it be called a comic rather than a manga? I know that the only difference has probably been from a westerner's perspective (I've heard that the Japanese call Western cartoons 'anime' as well) - we even differentiate Korean comics as 'manwha'...but still...why are we changing the term in Western countries?

Added reviews for Natsuiro no Sunadokei, Chrno Crusade and RG Veda, edit (05-08): and for The Redemption of Althalus (Eddings) as well... Still trying to find time to do a GSD rant...
