First of all, I do have to thank everyone for visiting my blog from those of you who are fans of my weekly video review series ‘Actar’s Reviews’ to those of you are just a visiting fellow Okaku. It really means a lot to me and I do appreciate your viewership, support, encouragement and comments.
So on to the main issue at hand.
The year is drawing to a close (well kinda) and it is that time of the year when exams are right around the corner. Thus, I have been busy studying MATH, PHYSICS, ECONOMICS and LITERATURE which I probably won’t need later on in life. But I digress. (^.^;)
These things have really been keeping me occupied and all the free time I have is dedicated to keeping up with weekly Anime releases, playing SUPER ROBOT WARS MX
on my PSP and of course, trying to find ways to earn enough cash to keep the reviews going. (^.^)
So, that’s basically my excu… reason for not blogging as often as I would like. There are a ton of stuff, like my opinions on issues and events and of course reviews, that I actually plan on posting and will definitely do so after my exams.
During my absence, I’ve also been getting into a number of other things, first of all Touhou, hence the title pic of Aya, my absolute favorite character. The games themselves are really enjoyable, though I perform horrendously at them.
I like ‘Shoot the Bullet’ the most as it’s a really unique take on the shooting game genera. Aya rules.
And because of Saki, I’ve learnt to play Japanese Mahjong. Ah, the wonders of Anime. (^.^;) I highly recommend trying out the Doujin Saki Battle Mahjong game. It’s a whole lot of fun.
Looking forward, here are a number of ideas floating around in my head.
For one, people have been asking me to give them a tour of my room, so there’s one there. I also really want to do a tour of the local Anime stores of Singapore as there are a ton of awesome shops and people that I would really like to mention. Some news items like event announcements and upcoming figure
or Anime releases that grab my attention will also be posted here as well. Most importantly, more written reviews will be coming your way as well.
Speaking of event announcements. AFA09 is coming!!! WOOT!!!
I will definitely be attending this year’s event and am really, really looking forward to it. Last year’s event was a complete success and this year’s event looks like it will be even bigger and better.
The highlights are listed on their website which is up now and will be continually updated as the event date approaches, though I would probably be doing a separate post on that at a later date. Would have done one on the recent press conference, but was sadly not invited. (^.^;)
Last but not least, ANIME RECOMMENDATIONS!!! Here’s a collage of all (most) the Animes airing this season:
So, splitting them up into Fantastic, Average and Meh, here are my recommendations:
FANTASTIC: Saki, Umineko no Naku Koro Ni, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu S2, Zan Sayonnara Zetsubou Sensei, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Princess Lover!, NEEDLESS, Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-Chan, Bakemonogatari, CANAAN.
AVERAGE: Sora no ManiMani, Umi no Monogatari, Aoi Hana, Taishou Yakyuu Musume, Yoku Wakaru Gendai Musume.
MEH: GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class, Kanamemo.
I didn’t see Element Hunters because I hate Chemistry. Nuff said. Haven’t finished Spice and Wolf Season 1, so not watching the sequel yet.
…and that’s about it for this post. Hopefully, I’ll be able to provide you guys with more of my (hopefully) interesting insights, opinions and coverages in time to come. (^.^)
