Oh, hello there. did the notification mess up again? ^^;
Yep, my old laptop is already broken, so it was a right time to get a replacement. The native monitor resolution is 1366x768, but this is enough for me since I know that the spec. won't be any good for the higher ones. Most games I played runs very well. Some even reached 60fps on max. setting, including re;birth1. Yeah, I've seen re;birth2 but I heard that it has some issues at launch too? IFI patched it but then they revoked it a day later and there's been no update about it IIRC... so I don't really know whether it's okay to get the game now. Haha, yeah. Lots of games are coming to the west and steam recently.
Thanks! although I'm quite ashamed since I graduated on the verge of my year limit as for jobs, unfortunately I'm still unemployed till now~ since there are very few vacancies of my interest. So for now I'm indulging myself in personal projects and doing part time works. Haha, that's the plan! I want to get a job so I can go even more crazy with my hobbies though I believe I won't be anywhere near you, hahah. The Noire figure hasn't arrived yet unfortunately... there's a new regulation regarding the customs here, so there are many stuffs got detained. Deliveries of goods have been slowing down ever since.
Sadly, the cosplay plan failed too T_T The costumes wasn't finished on time so I went to AFA without it... will wear it for upcoming events if I have the time. It was "last time" in the context of going there with my group. AFA is our annual agenda and we've attended all of them since 2012. This year was probably the last since my group will most probably "disbanded" naturally next year (simply means we're going on with our IRL lives so naturally can't meet as often as we're used to). So to make it memorable, I planned to do cosplay for once. But well... the plan failed, and who would've thought that for 1 of us, it was his last AFA alright since he passed away 2 months later. We're still mourning even now.
Well, If I managed to wear my cosplay attire for an event, I'll send my pics to you!
Oh wow, doctorate program. And I see you're still being yourself even doctorate studies can't stop you, lol. Microsoft Surface looks nice alright. Well, If you can afford it, then go for it. I used to view such devices as expensive and not really needed for me, but as I grow older and have less and less free time, I realized that those kind of devices do come in handy and very convenient for the right people.
Oh, hi there!
Nah, don't mind about the late reply. I was rather busy too in these few months. Heck, I even "skipped" the animes of the last season.
Yeah, I'm doing quite well thankfully. Anything new and crazy, huh? well... I don't really know where to start but 2015 seems like a YOLO year for me, lol. some of the recent ones would be:
- I finally bought a new laptop with decent specs. Though it's still mediocre in nowadays gaming standard (only i5 @ 2,70 GHz, nVIDIA 840M 2GB, 8GB RAM). But at least I finally get to play re;birth1! never played the original one, but I'm happy with the game as it wasn't that comedy-heavy like I presumed.
- I graduated 2 months ago! Yeah I know it's way too late hopefully I can redeem the time I lost by the time I get a job.
- I ordered this beauty. Ooh, my wallet's gonna cry for sure . Not really interested when it was still a prototype, but damn... never thought that the processor units would also be made. I just had to secure my order.
- Probably will do a cosplay for the regional AFA next month! since the artist lineup didn't interest me so might as well allocate the money for something else. I chose to do a cosplay since this AFA might be the last for me and my group of friends so might as well make it a bit more memorable.
- And I'm planning to make my own circle of ilustrators since creative business has been growing quite well over here.
Well, I guess that's it for me. Have plenty of things to do till the end of the year. How about you?
Regarding Vanadis...I have read up to Volume 10, if I remember correctly. The anime was only okay at best, I thought. It was plagued by many of the commonly complained about problems of LN adaptations - story rushed, poor production values, etc. The novels are a decent read in terms of a page turner, though.
This season has some promising adaptations going on as well, as you may already know. From light novel souces we have Rokka no Yuusha, and from manga sources we have Akagami no Shirayuki, Non Non Biyori Repeat, Gakkou Gurashi, Ushio to Tora and Himouto Umaru-chan.
For carryovers from last season there are Arslan Senki and Ore Monogatari. Then there is the odd Gatchaman Crowds Insight...I happen to like the first season, but it is a very divisive series - many really like it, dislike it or are just confused by it.
The second half of Cinderella Girls is also airing soon - another series I am looking forward to.
Aside from all the forum activity I help mod and the manga, novels and anime stuff I also do a little blogging on the side, and have been since the Winter 2014-5 season.
Yeah... but being drowned in this Japanese culture sometimes made us forget of our own age. but at least we have a young spirit!
- Core i3 2330M (@2,2 GHz)
- 2 GB RAM
- and AMD Radeon Mobility 6470M, shared VRAM, don't know the exact number
Yeah, I have a plan to build a desktop PC, but too bad the economy in my country turned bad recently and the exchange rate got pretty low~ orz
Compared to most series, yes. She's still superbly popular. But within the LL community itself, I think she's quite at the bottom. I'm not really the type to shout out my fondness unfortunately but well, at least the fans of her that I met so far are quite lovely personalities too.
A game would be nice... since I think this is a bit too early to switch focus.
Aikatsu? the arcade game's pretty big here wow, already 100++ episodes? o_O hmm let's see whether one of my friends have them. I'm a bit interested in iM@S Cinderella Girls instead. Many recommended it to me, is it really that good? I was never into iM@S before.
No, not yet. Akatsuki no Yona is from several seasons ago right?
I could deal with it in I.R. when he was still a brat but now in Cavalier, he's a freakin' adult but he's still acting like a kid who's lost his first love because of a misunderstanding. I can't feel too sorry for Nex on matters concerning Serin, but everything else, he had Depore, who can read minds and intent, to help him rule. Just so happens that Depore is a yandere for Jae Hyuk... I kinda want to see just how much she changed from before because it looked as if she had become an emotionless drone of a Magic stone before Nocht got her and gave her human-like emotions. If there was a way to get rid of the 'yandere' part of her, she'd be perfect.
I had pinned my last hope on Serin's imprisonment being a ruse for him to keep her out of the way until it was safe for her again but no, he's keeping her there because he thinks she betrayed him (again). Honestly, how many times did he jump to conclusions in I.R. and that came to bite him in his undead ass in just that story? And he repeated the same thing again and again... he hasn't learned a thing about trust. The woman was a living stand-in for a magic stone for 3 years AND had blood siphoned off periodically for you, even if you didn't realize it - what in the world did she do that was sooooo bad this time? I swear I'll flip a desk if it's just something like a shadow of Serin stabbed him in the back or something...
