    I actually saw that post right before you mentioned it to me. Need I mention which figurine grabbed my attention first?

    They are very tempting, but I was never into figurines that much, even if a store or convention carried a figurine which interested me (I would have to hide the figurine as well if I did pick one up).

    I'll check out Occult Gakuin.

    Holiday was pretty good. Stayed at a relative's house so saved a tonne of accommodation costs. Most of my money went into clothes lol. Brought home a lot of fashionable summer clothes which I will wear eventually when summer comes, and the food... my god I had a banquet almost everyday. 5000Won (Approx $5A) for an average meal with free servings of various side dishes (minimum of 5, one restaurant had up to 20). Western franchise restaurants like McDonalds or Burger King (Hungry Jacks) however are pretty expensive. Pretty much the same price as it is in Australia. But yea...Koreans really value eating + what you look like.

    Was able to go on two road trips, once around the whole Korean peninsula and once around Jeju Island. Jeju Island was pretty good, managed to climb Mt. Halasan, which was quite a feat for me considering I'm a skinny, unfit asian... One thing I would have liked to do but didn't have time is to personally check out the Starcraft pro scene... Oh well there is always next time.

    Nice to hear that you relatively enjoyed the AVCON. There was Supernova here at Perth during late June, but I missed it this year because I was in Korea at the time.

    Grats on the WoW Beta invite. SC2 just got released today so I'll be playing that semi-hardcore. Call it stereotypical, but the Korean blood in me urges to be participate in the starcraft scene .

    As for anime in 2010 so far, unfortunately it's been a very bad year... for now. I don't think there's been a single anime which I could rate a 8+/10 with the exception of possibly Rainbow. Not to mention there's been a severe lack of good male-orientated (that isn't a generic VN or generic harem) romance/drama lately. It is my favorite genre after all ... the last one I watched ef tale of melodies back in late 2008. I tried Kimi ni Todoke, but unfortunately I cannot get into it. Unfortunately, Shojo romances isn't my thing, my preference is in animes along the lines of ef, True Tears, Sola, Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora etc...

    However, I'm predicting this will change once all the movies that were aired late last year/early-mid this year becomes subbed. I can list 10 movies that are on my plan to watch list, which is probably more than the total number of anime movies I have watched combined. Out of the list, Bungaku Shoujo and Uchuu Show e Youkoso are on the top of my list.

    Madman only licenses what US companies do (particularly Funimation), so I don't depend on them. Can't say I blame them for not being brave though considering the current climate for anime... it's been on the decline in recent years. Lack of fresh content, focus on fanservice (particularly moe fanservice) which doesn't appeal to westerners and the whole privacy debate. Not particularly sure how one could solve the problem, but generally I think going digital is the way to go - pay a small fee per ep. (e.g. Steam, Itunes). Just need to be sure when going to digital, quality is maintained (good subtitles, and at least 720p) and without being plagued by DRMs.

    And oh, I did watch Black Rock Shooter (don't know why I forgot about it) but yeh it was pretty bad. Made it worse in the fact that I'm not a Miku Hatsune fan either.

    Back from my holiday, uni started so I'm back to watching anime again during my free time. Unfortunately, this season is pretty meh. My most anticipated anime (High School of the Dead) turned out to be dog turd - focuses on fanservice and typical Japanese comedy rather than the zombie action. As a friend of mine said, Left 4 Dead acted out via Japanese stereotypes - not cool.

    Other stuff I tried included Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Ookamisan to Shichinin no Nakamatachi, Nurarihyon no Mago, Amagami SS, Seitokai Yakuindomo and Shiki. All of them were either pretty bad or meh.

    One anime did catch my attention though, and that was Cat Shit One. I'll give it full points of originality (using animals to depict the Americans and Taliban/Al-Quader w/e) and high points for entertainment, but low-medium points for plot as I've seen this on TV, FPS games and movies plenty of times.

    The site seems to have crapped out on me, I was just at 863 after reading it all day...

    I read too many webcomics, Megatokyo(which if you're not patient will drive you mad with the update schedule), Looking For Group, XKCD, Least I Could Do, El Goonish Shive...

    So I was bored with nothing to do and followed the webcomic link in your sig, way to give me yet another series to follow. It reminds me of Something Positive.

    I had a feeling which of Mikoto's opponents had the best chance of winning their matches and 5 out of 6 did their job. All I had to worry about was the Mio/Taiga match and at least one key match from the winner of the Hina/Shana match which was Shana. The key match I referred to happened to be Kagami and Rin. Shana would of won the necklace if Rin won the match. As much as I wanted Yui to win in round 7, the close result between her and Tomoyo gave me ulcers.

    Spoiler for About the pics:


    While my current series of choice this season would be Ookami-san, an interesting image blog/review of a specific episode and character may have tempted me to look into Occult Gakuin.

    na no problem mate i havent had much of a chance to come on lately but i know how you feel about sleep troubles because i have the exact same problem and it can get pretty hectic at times.

    yeah im also watching Occult Gakuin and am loving it at the moment and have to agree that both the series could be my favourite of the year the only thing i hope is that the lead male Uchiro doesnt turn out to be a dud. ive also got shiki but havent started it yet and ive also got a few other shows from this season that im watching.

    plus i have a ton of shows from last season that i still have to catch up on.

    Yeah Turalyon has a lot of raiding guilds and there are gdkps but I don't really bother with them too much. I really haven't played much lately, too bored of ICC at this point.

    Actually I have a pretty decent ret set I just never get to spec it and so I've basically left my second spec as my Anub25 Hardmode spec for tanking all 4 adds -_-
