I'm so excited I don't even know what to say. I've been scoffing at the 3DS ever since it was announced by if AA5 is on it I will be shelling out the money. I don't care if it features Apollo or Phoenix or even some new guy, I AM SO EXCITED. 

Okay but actually I do kind of hope it's Apollo. A flashback case with Kristoph somehow involved would always be nice as well.

So apparently a Persona 4 anime is in the works.


I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO EXCITED.

I watched the trailer and freaked out. I know that kind of reaction is pretty typical for fandom but I don't usually get that excited, haha.  I didn't even know I was capable of being that excited over something anymore. The teaser looks fantastic and I'm so glad the style is similar to that of the game's (as far as I can tell). Naturally, I'm a tad pissed they changed Souji's name to Yu, of all names (I don't know why it irks me so much, but there's just... something). It just doesn't fit. Of course, I wouldn't be totally satisfied with anything other than Souji in the first place, so whatever.

I can't wait, though. I just wish I knew when it was coming out! Arrgh! I have no patience for these things. 
Persona 4 is one of my absolute favorites, though, so I couldn't be more thrilled. It's the perfect game and it would work quite well as an anime, so I have high hopes!

In other news, I'm playing Dragon Age 2. It's much more fun than I expected. I haven't played the games before it, but I'm enjoying this one!
I also... may have tried watching The Borgias... What can I say. Catholicism intrigues me--even though I go to Catholic school, the religion has yet to lose its mystery. And Assassin's Creed 2 just may have something to do with it as well. I don't think I'm sticking with it, though. The only thing keeping my interest is that ridiculous prince with the Prince Valiant haircut and that hilarious voice

While driving around the city a bit today, I spotted a car all decked out in some Lucky Star paint job. Konata and... that other girl (Kagami? Konami? I've never seen the show so I don't really know)  were all over it and it looked spectacularly expensive. I try really hard not to be judgmental, but I have never, ever experienced such extreme second hand embarrassment. On the other hand, it was impressive in an odd way. It's hard for me to imagine loving something that much. I'm a little fickle when it comes to things I'm interested in.

I'm still reading The Hunger Games and it's pretty interesting. Obviously the writing is not brilliant, but it's a kids' series after all. Unfortunately, I can't help comparing it to Battle Royale constantly since I read that first. I think The Hunger Games is certainly more creative and the characters are usually less flat and generally more likable, but Battle Royale just seems a lot more clever.

Dang, I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted anything. It's been a really crazy year in a lot ways. Really, though, I'm also just a little flaky.

I've started reading The Hunger Games, since my friend recommended it to me. I will shamelessly admit to enjoying a show I catch on Nick or Disney more than most other things on TV at the moment, but somehow I'm not as wild about YA lit or anything in that vein--Harry Potter being the obvious exception. I'm only 50 pages in so far, since I have a mountain of school work, but I can really start reading it now that I've finished...

Y: The Last Man. I literally just finished it and the ending was the most downer-ish ending I have ever read. I can appreciate a tragic ending, but that was just... damn. I have this really awful habit of never finishing things. I'll read 298 pages of a 300 page book and just stop. With TV shows, I'll just leave the last few episodes unwatched, and with games, I'll just leave it at the last two to five hours (it's particularly bad with games, which is why I feel very accomplished about having completed all of the Phoenix Wright games twice, haha). I don't drop them on purpose--it's just some subconscious desire for them not to end. Or to not have to go through a sad ending. Honestly I really wish I had done that with Y: The Last Man, but that would have been stupid anyway. So it's for the best I didn't, I guess.




 

Three guesses as to which cover made me interested in Y: The Last Man in the first place.
Stupid sexy Dr. Mann. (Yes, I am shallow).


Even though I did not enjoy the ending, the series overall was fantastic. I was really surprised to see the premise handled in such a sophisticated but realistic manner. The sociological and political possibilities were all covered, but in a mostly objective manner. I loved all of the major characters and at times Y: The Last Man was actually quite poignant.

I promised myself I would try to stay off of Livejournal as much as possible during the school year. It would be really fabulous to be able to go "hey, well now it's summer so I can do whatever!"  but I got a horrendous stomach virus in the middle of finals so I still have to go back to school next week and finish them up. So that sorta sucks. I've decided it's summer anyway, though--until finals, at least.

Today I tried watching The Princess And The Frog, which I bought months ago and put on hold until school was over, but despite being new, it's very freeze-happy. Maybe it'll work better if  I watch it on the TV instead of my laptop. I'm pretty sure freezing DVDs don't actually work that way, but it's worth a shot.

I also started watching Durarara!! and it's surprisingly good. All of the characters are interesting and the storyline is pretty unique. I usually like getting into things after they've been completed so I can marathon them (i.e. take like two weeks to a month to finish, yes I am slow) but I got into it pretty late so I got to do that for half the episodes at least. Unfortunately, for some reason I am really not into Izaya/Shizuo and apparently that is 90% of the fanart/fanfiction/etc. On a different note, I've started reading various American comics too. I've read some random Batman in the past, as well as Harley Quinn's miniseries and The Runaways, but recently I suddenly decided to read more. So I guess I'm just reading some more random Batman now and The Young Avengers. I think I finished The Young Avengers since I couldn't find any more of it but where I left off really didn't feel like an ending, so I'm a little confused.

I'm not really sure what to make of Pokemon White/Black but the new Pokemon look... sort of weird, haha. The 3D aspect sounds pretty neat, but I just hope they can pull it off without everything looking really jagged. 

Also, I got the Ace Attorney art book a while back and I'm still sort of shocked that Trucy has a ponytail! That sounds ridiculous, I know, but I'd always just sort of assumed she had shoulder length-ish hair somehow. Oops! Obviously it's too early to start wondering about AA5 since AAI just came out a few months ago, but I can't help wishing some news about it will miraculously come up some day.

I have been busy to an ungodly degree recently, but I managed to finally finish AAI last night. It definitely exceeded my expectations, which is great. I wasn't sure what to make of it when I first played the demo, but by half of the 2nd case I was pretty hooked.
Spoilers!Collapse )

My sister dragged me to see A Single Man today. I thought it would be just some so-so tearjerker, but it greatly exceeded my expectations. The cinematography was absolutely gorgeous, the acting was phenomenal, and it was just tragic (but in a good way--an interesting way, not a trite way). It sounds overrated, but it is seriously amazing.

I'm sort of excited about Last Window, despite my somewhat unfortunate experience with Hotel Dusk--which I'll need to start over and play to the finish at some point.

Hotel Dusk. Aaaaaaaargh. If that black light or whatever hadn't screwed me over, I'm sure I would have loved that game. And the fact that it was my fault for not picking it up just makes it so, so much worse.

You know what? I've been feeling EXTREME 90's NOSTALGIA recently. It's killing me. Especially all the old educational video games I used to play, damn those were fun. And the Disney ones.

Well, I got a PSP recently pretty cheap off of eBay. I'm really, really glad I did after seeing this:




Female protag? In P3?

I'm pretty excited, not gonna lie. As atrocious as I think fem!Orpheus looks, the female MC looks pretty all right. All I can think of when I see her hair is Kirsten (Kristen? I can't believe I forgot this) from American Girls or whatever her name was haha, but that's not a bad thing I guess.

I really, really hope you can date the girls as the female MC. I highly doubt that will happen but it would be so fabulous if it did. I'll be happy just to have the option to date Akihiko, though, I guess. And Junpei. It would be really great if this game allowed the male MC to date Tanaka too haha. There was always something a little off about his S. Link, I don't think it would be too much of a stretch.



In other news, I got Star Ocean First Departure. I keep trying to convince myself that Star Ocean is a crappy series and that I don't like it, but I guess  my subconscience won out this time. I'm only two hours into it so I'm still not sure what I think of it but it's all right so far. Except for the voice acting. I really don't think I'm that picky about voice acting but this... ergh... it's bad.
