Mood: awake.
I watched the best anime film I have ever seen so far in my life:

5 Centimeters Per Second

The animation was astounding, backgrounds were beautiful, and the story was great. A must see......

In other news, I am still trying to work out the AX hotel, as I am put down as waitlisted for Sun for the Westin.  I called the company handling registration and hopefully I will hear back from them soon, so I know if I have a room Sun night, that way I can start looking for flights.

Mood: cold.
So it has been a while since i posted....where to begin

I have been found on myspace by my elementary school classmates!!!! It seems they are planning a reunion, its been such a long time since I have seen any of them, so nostalgic. I look forward to seeing them again.......

Tenjou Tenge volume 18, finally!!!! I have been waiting for this to come out, now I want 19 to come out....lol. Aya-chan is so cool.....

I have really gotten into Kodomo no Jikan, after hearing all the controversy, my interest got peaked. I looked it over, and while it is a lil questionable at times, overall I am liking it. Didnt expect it to touch on as many more heavy subject matter as it did. Looking forward to chpt 35

Found out my friend is getting married in Australia (she lives there now and came back to visit us here about 1 month ago). So I am going to Australia next year (after a stop to Japan of course) I may still go to Japan this year, depends on my budget and job.....

I have finally ordered all of my the backlogged ADV dvd's i have been waiting for, next week will be busy catching up with all my shows....
I also got a look at the PIQ magazine, I only skimmed through it, but I do miss the nice artwork that was present on NewType (it just isnt the same) They have an interesting article up, entitled "Is Anime over" which I am going to read

Right now looking to book a hotel for AX and one for ACEN. Hopefully I can find something decent for AX, as I hear the area it is in isnt that great. So wanna be as close as possible to the con (but very expensive) We will see....

I miss spring.......darn you snow and winter!!!!!!!

Subject:First post of the New Year
Time:9:39 pm.
Mood: geeky.

Well, its been a while since I posted....hehe

Mostly I have been so busy left and right I havent really had a chance to really take a breather (where you actually rest and dont worry about anything...if thats even possible ow and days). At work, we are now understaffed, so I have been very busy with that as one of my coworkers left to another position shortly after chirstmas. So now I am the only IT staff at the Chicago office. Learning a lot more, as now I am no longer the man behind the MAN, but it can be a lil hectic.

Havnet been studying as much as I shoul lately, hopefully will pick up again this week (Japanese and IT certification exam). I plan to take the IT test this year in the summer and the JLPT level 3 n the winter, so I have some cramming to do.

This week, after making several trips to Best Buy, I finally got my replacement mp3 player (yay for 2 year replacement plan). I got first hand experience at how much a pain a Zune can be, and I absolutely refuse to get an iPod, so I now have a Scandish 16GB Sana View. I wanted something bigger, but it was the only option left.......sigh. It looks like I will eventually have to get an iPod, as they are ruling the mp3 player industry, but I will hold off as lon as I can.

Looks like I will be on staff again at Anime Central this year (yay Hali Cali) so that shoul dbe fun. Planning on making another trip to CA for Anime Expo this year, and maybe I will be going to Japan in December this year for vacation with friends for New Years. We will see....

Subject:Ohhhh.....Haunted house this weekend
Time:5:00 pm.

 Went to Dream Reapers this weekend, and had a good time (though it was a 2 hr wait to get inside) Luckily it wasnt too scary (cuz I am secretly a wuss when it comes to these things) Luckily I was in the back of the group, so that most of the people in the front got scared the most. Afterwards, we had some good chicken wings at Hooters (and saw Colorado loose as well)

Been a pretty quiet week so far. It seems I may go to Japan next year during x-mas and new years, it is still pending so we will see. Given that it is Halloween tomm, I will have to rent a scary movie of some kind. Nightmare on Elm street perhaps? 

We have some candy here in the office I have been snacking on, horray for candy corn (I will always love you even if no one else does)

Had a chance to go to Mitsuwa on Friday and grab:

Oct Japan NewType
Bleach vol 30
School Rumble vol 18
School Days vol 1

It looks like I am buying waaay to many books....shelf space decreasing. Wll have to do a cleanup and see if there is anything I can toss/sell/recycle

Went to a wedding on Friday and had fun. The cake was yummy.  More and more people are getting married, I wonder when I will get married....hmmmmmmmm

Got to finish Higurashi no naku koro ni. Freaked me out to no end.....very creepy, but good show. The same goes for Lain, as Im almost done with that show as well.

Started to study again for my Computer certifications. I am currently studying for the A+ and plan to do a Microsoft one too soon.

Im also learning the ~んですform as well Japanese wise. Its a lil confusing, but Im sure I'll get the hang of it soon!!

 Yay Heroes epsiode 3!!!! (Good show)

Well I got to see 'The Gilr who Lept Through Time" this weekend as part of the Chicago International Film Festival. It was a good movie, I really enjoyed myself. I also got to see a japanese film called "Strawbery Shortcakes." It was an ok film but was completely different from what I though it would be....defintely not suitable for younger auidences.....O_O

Im also watching Serial Experiment Lain....and it is......well ...weird. On episode 5

This weekend I plan on going to Mitsuwa to get the next volume of Bleach and School Rumble. I also got my NewType, Megami, and AniMedia DVD magazines from Akadot. They had AX coverage in the Newtype (mostly Haruhi) which was nice. I was laughing over the poster of the Lucky Star Haruhi cosplayers...lol

Fun stuff...WAI!!!!!

Subject:Long time no see LJ.....
Time:9:31 am.
Mood: groggy.

Its been a while since my last post. My new work environment has it so that everyone can look over my shoulder now-and-days, which makes surfing the web that much harder...booo, though i do suupose I should be doing 'work' at work (its overrated though)

The Geneon exit from anime market has me a lil sad, (ive followed them since thier 'Pioneer' days). Im hoping that the market will be able to fix itself one day and make a strong comeback. Id really hate to see it get any smaller....
I have to pick up all the DVD's Ive been slacking on before the disspear (R.O.D., Last Exile, Chobits, Lain, etc....)

The internation film festival is starting up in Chicago this month. I will finally get to see "The Girl who lept through time'....yay!!!!

Lately it seems like I have lil time for anything. Maybe I need to manage my time better, ot maybe its because I have some more responsibilites at work? Either way, I need to figure out how to do more in a small period of time. I hope I can win the lottery soon so I can retire......

Today is the new episode of Heroes!!!! YAY!!! This has been my new vice this year, its a great show...

Oh, and I might get a PS3, since I will be getting a big reimbursement back from my firm for unpaid benefits. I didn't think I would be getting one at all, so this may be good news. I read its region free, so if it is, My wallet may take another hit as I would try and buy more Japanese games!! (KH 3 for sure!!!!)

It seems the anime club I belong to has been in a slump. Granted, I havent had time to organize much now-and-days, but its always the same few faces (which isnt a bad thing, I ahve fun with out regulars, they are kewl peeps). I wonder if its worth running anymore? So many people have joined yet very little participation...sigh... we will see how it goes.

I also have to email tons of people I havent been keeping in touch with....Ive been really bad with my time!!! Well time to get back to work....boooo

Magical Girl Nanoha A's episodes 2-4......the kawaii meter reached 100 then spun around 100 times and broke. I am loving this show. Also catching up on a lot of manga (perhaps too many) I's vol 5....^o^ (darn that Ichitaka)

Need to pick up the volumes of Newtype Japan and Megami, so will prob take a trip to Mitsuwa. I am also waiting for the next volume of school rumble (Man Eri can be scary!!!)

Arggghhhhh.....its the weeek I have been dreading for the past month. Our office is moving this Friday, and lucky me had to work very very late that day and a full day Sat. If we do not finish setting up all the I.T. equipment those days, I will be even luckier and have to work on Sun and possibly Mon. T___T I hope I get a comp day at least.......sigh

Just finished watching episode one of Nanoha A's, and so far im loving it......wish there was more than 13 episodes, but I have Nanoha strikers to fill that void.....

And on another note, Fruits Baskets vol 17 still has me in shock. This was me --> O_O

So I'm reading some of the ANN forum postings this A.M. Am I one of the few who really liked the Air anime? I thought it was a good story, a little slow paced, but overall great animation and story.

I just finished the manga series Aishiterezu ze baby last night. I love the series and anime, and the manga ending........sniff....was sooo sad T__T

I got to go to the Ginza festival at the Midwest Buddhist temple and had fun, had some kinkoori!!! (sweat beans atop of shaved ice)
I must have gotten a million mosquito bites, but had a good time.

I found out that I am working on a Sat at the end of this month and prob late that Friday as well...booo
our office is in the process of moving, so I have to help get all the I.T. stuff setup and ready by the time the office opens, I just hope I dont have to work labor day.

I think I might go to Japan again next year during the sakura season, as two of my friends might be going around that time again.....we will see...

Started to rewatch some of my old Buffy DVD's......how I miss that show!!!! I would get the Angel DVD's too, except that I hated the ending to that series so much, it has stopped me from doing so.

It has also occured to me that I am behind in my JDrama viewing and manga reading, I have so much to read an watch!!! Why cant there be more hours in the day!!!!

Well listening to this song has gotten me in a Haruhi mood...maybe I should dance?......

Subject:Movies & more movies!!!!
Time:11:53 am.
Mood: Another Mon.

I went Wed to the Chicago Cultural Center to see a free screening of the japanese 2006 Movie, Taiyo No Uta (Midnight Sun). It was a great movie,  YUI was in it (Bleach songs, Rolling Star-OP and Life-ED). The music is great too, it was one of the best things about the movie, I would highly recommend it.

I also got to see the Simpsons movie on Friday and witnessed the Spider Pig song. It was a good movie and apparently there are 2 more movies in the works. Yay for Spider Pig and Harry Plopper!!!!
