armored-core-4-3Playing Armored Core: for Answer and enjoying my mecha-simulation/nerd-time has lead me to an interesting question: which anime genre would you most like to see made into a sim?

moe-46550-2008-ani-com-august-bleed_through-bounen_no_xamdou-nishimura_haruWhat a week this has been. Characterized by Xam’d, Halo 3, Sins of a Solar Empire, and the general lethargy that goes along with being cooped up with very little to do than stare out the window at the icey world around me, I’ve actually come up with a post. Yes, I know, my idleness should have been spent posting much more than I have recently, but oh, well. Hindsight is 20/20.

That said, I haven’t even been watching as much anime as I would have liked to in my free time. But what time has been spent watching anime, has, as I mentioned earlier, been spent on Xam’d, which leads me to the subject of my post: Anime has thrived, thus far, on a strong contingent of rabid followers, labeled otaku by some and weeaboos by others, but what significance does it hold for you? How different is that from the past?

A Clannad Christmas

Anyway, after a party, a lot of fun packing, and a 9-hour drive, I find myself in Corpus. Funny how that works.  So here I am, in the interim between semesters (it’s going to be 77 on Christmas!).

Personally, I’m really not doing much except working part-time as a tech at a video production studio and hopefully finishing Persona 4. Other than that, though, I’m biding my time until Christmas, then biding my time until my birthday, which should be fun.

I am, however, lamenting the end of Kannagi, which was my hands-down favorite anime this season. To every end, though, there’s a beginning, which has in this case manifested as a new series by Joss Whedon, called Dollhouse. Also, Battlestar Galactica is finally finishing up, and I’ll be watching that.

That said, I’ll take a moment to ask what everyone else is doing for the break and also ask what anime series, if any, are starting up in this winter season.

Acceptance

Acceptance

As you can see, I’ve been accepted into Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. I don’t know exactly when I’ll be leaving, but rest assured I’ll stay in Norman for as long as possible (read: March) before leaving for home, then Japan. That said, I won’t have classes next semester in the mean time, and hopefully I’ll be getting a job (anyone have any suggestions?).

While I’m there I’ll be maintaining this blog, but my professional writing major friend has convinced me that writing a study abroad blog will be a good thing. I can’t help but agree. So when I post here, I’ll probably post there. Hopefully, since I’m bringing my camera with me, I’ll have more pictures than I know what to do with. Talk about which, are there any anime pilgrimages you think I should make while I’m there other than the Comic-cons and Akihabara?

Anyway, I’m off to study for finals and play some Persona 4 before my last final at 8am tomorrow (eugh! why 8? why Friday? I need to get back to Corpus!).
