Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations

Just finished watching episodes 1 and 2 of Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations, which is the OVA of the TV series Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. OMG the two short episodes had more material in it than the entire 2 seasons/52 episodes added together. I so can't wait for the third OVA to be released later this month. It's really got me back into Tsubasa. I was actually very very bored with the 2 TV season, to the point where I'd be watching the show and doing something else altogether, yet still manage to keep up with the plot. The only reason I kept up with the series is purely for the fact that it's work by CLAMP, and they don't have much going these days other than xxxHolic. The Tsubasa TV series itself was just about their travels through random worlds, and most stories are sort of stand alone. It keeps on setting mysteries (at a very slow pace), but never tries to explain, whereas Tokyo Revelations was probably designed more to explain some of the mysteries left behind by the TV series. Yay for Tokyo Revelations! I like mysteries only when they get solved. A mystery that drags out for 52 episodes without even getting anywhere near being solved tends to lose it's appeal.

Also started downloading Rental Magica, which I had been resisting in doing for a while. It was originally brought to my attention by one of my nurses, who said it had looked interesting. I read around a little, and the show wasn't that great to warrant my immediate downloading attention. However, I was bored and out of things to download (well, that's not strictly true, but for simplicity lets just say I've run out of things to download), so I though I'd give it a go. Watched the first episode, which was not as bad as I had anticipated. I mean a show with magic users, monsters and curses can never really be truely boring. There were moments of cliche, but at least there's more than one male in the show that has more than 5 second screen time. The female:male ratio is still fairly large though, so am a little weary about where show could go. Hopefully it won't be a waste of my download quota. Well, on to watch episode 2...

I feel jibed

I feel jibed. Of my monthly download quota. I had assumed the quota would date one month from when I first connected, which would have made it the 15th of this month. However, little did I know, that because this broadband deal couples with out home phone line statement, they changed the quota counting period to coincide with the phone payment period, hence shortening it by about 10 days. I HAD 4 GB OF QUOTA LEFT!! T_T If I had known it sooner, I'd have downloaded so much crap yesterday... stupid Telstra.

Nehoos, went out with friends for dinner and hot choc afterwards yesterday. Surprising considering the anti-social tendecies that usually grips my life. But I'm in a sociable mood, that and my star signs this week tells to me go out and socialise, as it may enlighten me in my future career path. Last night didn't really help, but I had fun. Afterwards ended up at a friend's place to fiddle with her newly acquired Wii. Played Super Mario Galaxy which was much fun. Again it reinforced the fact that I'm not made for coordination. It was hard enough for me to direct the actions of mario when the world was 2-D on my Super Nintendo. Imagine the trauma when everything expands into 3-D, and the world revolves around as you move. So so confusing for my senses. I can see how it can become really addictive though. Too bad it wasn't a weekend night yesterday, else would have considered all night gaming.

Speaking of game addictions, my latest craze would be Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I don't own a NDS, but managed to find an emulator that allows me to play the game on my laptop. X3 It's so addictive. Makes you want to solve puzzle after puzzle non-stop. Some are fairly straight forward but some really racks your brain. Or racks my brain at least. I suppose one of the reason why I'm so addicted to the game is because there're very few other games I can get properly working on the emulator (e.g. Nintendogs).

Speaking of my laptop, I THINK IT MAY BE DYING T___T. This morning when I turned it on, it gave a blue screen of death telling me it could not locate my hard drive. I was like O_O "What do you mean you can't locate my hard drive?" Luckily after rebooting, it started up okay again, but it's starting to get me worried. Time to start backing up things I think.

Well that's about it. Oh, finally finished watching Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu, and now am in a semi-Suzumiya-Haruhi craze. By that I mean downloading all the music and random extra clips out there related to the series. Again, frsutrated that I didn't use up all of last "month"'s quota to finish downloading all the tracks. Note the use of " ". Stupid Telstra with their bizzare definition of a month.
