Try not to waste resources

Was sending a nice song via YouSendIt to Koganthi when I realised that it was perfectly accessible to everyone else as well. Decided not to waste the time I spent uploading and leave the link here.

This one is Fever and Future – GYM. Not too shabby, it’s a fast, high-paced song.



Life and it’s many directions…

Woah, heard this year’s Prime Minister speech. Interesting. Apparently, Nanyang Technological University seems to have attracted a Japanese anime company over here (which one? I don’t know). They made some computing programs and what not, making it possible to produce anime at about 40% cheaper.

That’s it. Now I have a University to aim for. Should have known though, NTU has always been the local front for digital and interactive media.



I really empathise…

Well, I’ve only watched episodes one to three, but I think it’s time to put up something on those episodes.

I suppose the central character would be Haruhi. Unfortunately, I, being the part time loser that I am, seem to feel more for Kyon. We have quite a few similar characteristics…Sitting in the back of the class one of them, hehe. What else? Well, Kyon is quite a cynical guy, it seems. He doesn’t believe much good is going to come out of the SOS brigade (kinda obvious from episode 1). He’s just in it to make sure nothing too bad happens. That protective streak so far covers Mikuru, hopefully no one else needs it.

Then after that, I realized something. The members (not chief. Haruhi is the big exception) of the SOS brigade seem to be all pretty passive. Kyon the cynic getting dragged in…Yuki, er, just happened to be there and didn’t move away…Mikuru getting kidnapped and forced in (the worst…). Either they all have weak personalities, which doesn’t seem all that possible, except Mikuru, or Haruhi is just one big glowing, radioactive blob of aggression. Seriously. I think she has not only lacks all and any passive personality traits, but she’s locked and loaded to the teeth with a complete lack of restrictions.

I think Yuki phrased it best. “I am not referring to the absence of universally accepted personality traits”.



Looks like a bend in the road.

Yup. As of today, I’ll be putting up more reviews for anime, games, and manga. It’s nothing too new to me, so I myself wonder why I never bothered to start earlier. I’m also considering moving some of my reviews posted elsewhere to here. Many reasons for that, but quite a bit for safety.

 In the meantime, check out the first review on the list then. Rival Schools 2 review.
