"Angel Beats" Review

I was never really planning on watching "Angel Beats". I knew it was popular, and it kept showing up on my Netflix feed, but it just never made it on my list of "must see animes". Well, a few weeks ago, my cousin Katie suggested it to me, and since I had just finished "Evangelion" (which is amazing. BTW), I figured I would give it a try. I liked it. I'm not going to say that it will ever be in my top 10 list or anything, but it was really good, with great character growth and a generally light plot. Heck, I even cried in the end (and not feels/internal crying, I bawled like a baby). It's a fun, short show that I recommend to anyone who likes a bit of action and sci-fi thrown into the a school-life show!


Alright, on to the review!

"Otonashi awakens only to learn he is dead. A rifle-toting girl named Yuri explains that they are in the afterlife, and Otonashi realizes the only thing he can remember about himself is his name. Yuri tells him that she leads the Shinda Sekai Sensen (Afterlife Battlefront) and wages war against a girl named Tenshi. Unable to believe Yuri's claims that Tenshi is evil, Otonashi attempts to speak with her, but the encounter doesn't go as he intended."

Swearing: not any more than the other shows I've reviewed. I feel like it may have been less, but I'm not sure. (Ok, I'm going to make a page that has how I rate stuff on it... that sounds good).

All of these characters are dead. They are living in a strange high school afterlife. They cannot die in the after life, so they are constantly "killed" in violent ways... run through with a knife, drown, fall off a building... but they don't actually die. Make sense? It's like their all Rory Williams-Pond or something.

Some of the characters have flashbacks to their earthly life and how they died. One girl's siblings are brutally murdered. Nobody commits suicide in their real life, btw, just thought I'd throw that out there.

It's a relatively popular anime, but I heard that it was taken off of Netflix. I watched it on animefreak.

There are sooo many great characters in this show. I really wish there had been two seasons, because it would have been easier to explain everyones back story better.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (or Americans, I guess)...

I hope you all have a wonderful day with your friends and families!

Something Rather Funny

So I was going through some documents on my google drive, right? Who knows how old they were, who knows what was saved in there, so I decided to go through and look.

I came across an old folder.

I came across an old doc.

On this paper was a list of links.

No joke, one of these links had the heading of "Damn Sexy Man Walks By".

What on earth is this?

I was already laughing at the title, so when I opened it  I nearly died. Here's what I found:


I don't ship Murther. Arthur isn't a "damn sexy man" (in my opinion). I'm not even the type of person to say "damn sexy"... what on earth is this!? When did I put this in my drive? I was laughing for a good 5 minuits after I saw this. I still am!

Oh, the joys of looking at old documents

SNK and other things

I watched the first episode of Attack on Titan (or SNK, whichever you prefer), and I loved it.

This is a problem.

I don't want to get emotionally involved with characters I know are going to die.

But I need to watch this show.

I need to cosplay from it.


*evil cackle as I begin to draw plans for cosplay stuff*

So, I'm still a bit under the weather, and as you can see from above, I started a new show...
Not much else has happened. I did finish my Spider-Man comic, and now I can't wait to go back to the comic store!

I need to finish drivers ed, so that I can be driving by next April... it's a bit off from my birthday, but that's OK. I will still be driving.

I can't think of much else that's going on, other than I'm starting to get my college list together.

Alright, have a great week, everyone!

So I don't have my notebook and have no idea if these pics are actually in the right month or not. I took my best guess. No idea how much time I spent on arts... probably a good 35 to 40 hours (Sep. and Oct. combined).

Hope you liked it!

(haha sorry if this doesn't make any sense I'm not feeling well.)

Yep. Exactly what the title says.

I've started deviating from my usual makeup routine, sacrificing grey eyeshadow for teal and plumb for lavender. But that isn't really a big change. No, my big change would be cutting a good 3 to 4 inches off of my hair.

That's right, I cut off the hair that I had waited for so long to grow out. I don't know why, I just did. Oh, well, I'll just wait another few years and do this all over again. I also did a henna tattoo, but that's not really a permanent, or big change. It just looks cool :)

Obviously I changed my blog's look a while back. Steampunk, steampunk, steampunk. I just love steampunk! That is another change: I'm going Steampunk- Lolita. Not full time, of corse. I couldn't live without my jeans and fandom shirts, but after years of being one of the annoying "omg i don't wear dresses that's too girly" (ok, so I left that phase by the time I was 13, but I still never wore dresses) I have decided it is time to try something new and just go for it. So dresses it is. Lolita, specifically, because that's what captured my heart first ;)
Possible first Lolita coord!
Ok, so those are all changes biased on my appearance, are there any other changes?


I am beginning to look at colleges and majors that I may be interested in. It's fun, but a little bit terrifying. Right now the Academy of Arts in San Francisco and MIT are my two tops. but there are quite a few other cool ones that I'm looking at, as well! If I go into art or animation, I want to go to Florence for a semester or summer to study there. I would be only a 45 min. train ride to Lucca, where my family lives, so I would be able to visit them!

Unfortunately, I'm not doing NaNoRiMo this year. I was planning on it, but the Scholastic Awards are coming up soon, and I haven't even started my project! I do have some sketches and ideas, though.

So, changes, changes, changes. That's all life is, a succession of changes and events, one after another, I guess.

And pasta. Pasta's good too. Good lord am I hungry.

(Yes, I'll have the arts up soon. I found my camera, took the pictures, and then lost my second notebook with the times. joy. Planning to have it up by Wednesday.)

In other news, I'm still crying over Hakuouki.
