The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Semifinal "Analysis"

Wellwe made it. By "making it", meaning me jumping off the ship to avoid sounding like a . I've beendispleased to say the least with how the bracket has gone (not taken into consideration my torched bracket in the omochallenge, but that has been spilled milk for a while now). Partly because it makes me feel like I don't know what music is nowadays. When you have people saying things like "instrumentals/English songs shouldn't be involved in this competition", it makes me shake my head. I guess my definition of "anime music" is a lot looser than most people; if someone said this was an "Anison" contest, than maybe I'd understand.

So I've been refraining to comment on the past couple of rounds because of this feeling, but since we're running into the final four, I feel like I need to at least provide a sense of closure to myself (or at least not feeling like I just quit on this project). In going from 256 songs to 4, there's been a lot of ruminating on what songs mean for people. I still don't feel like I've got that yet, but I'll try somewhat.

Abbey-Neko says lots~!

Well, well, I'm not exactly sure what this post will entail but as usual I will just write about whatever it is that is on my mind. It isn't that often anymore that I get the urge to sit down calmly to write my stories like I used to which saddens me to a large extent because I really do want to be an author and write books and share my imagination with the world. I'm not sure why I feel this way but I do want to write, I do want to make a career with my passion for words. The passion and drive is still in me hidden underneath the ever craziness that is the modern world. My curiosity about everything tends to override my wanting to write. I get frustrated easily these days and all means of creativeness fades and I just want to curl up into a ball and hide under my blankets, sharing sweet cuddles with my boyfriend who I love so much. To forget all that is and isn't. I'm always tired from lack of sleep, lack of motivation, lack of wanting to do anything. I'm bored at home while school's out for me.

But what should I do?

Spice and Wolf


That anime I watched long before I started this blog. Thanks to 's review, by he way. And I guess it will make a good change to talk about something nice, to make you forget about the horrors of , that we discussed last time.

Anime Review: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Nothing much changed with me other than FINALLY Nintendo has announced Youtube is coming to the 3DS. Unfortunately it is at a time where most people are completely fed up with Youtube and it's Google+ shenanigans. I don't have a Google+ account, never wanted one, but now I HAVE to get one to do something so simple as to even LEAVE A FREAKIN' COMMENT!? To be honest, the only reason I wanted Youtube on my 3DS is so that I can watch Spice and Wolf on the damn thing. It's a similar reason why I want Crunchyroll to release a 3DS app, so that I can watch Maoyu on my system. A message to Google: STOP SCREWING WITH YOUTUBE! It's fine if you do things that make the experience better, but all you are doing is making it worse! Anyway, on to reviewing this week's anime: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Your mother's dead... and your sister is blind... Oh and I think your cat ran away. You okay Lelouch?
