sol’s Weekly Update #4

Hiya! Unfortunately, due to work related reasons, the week before last I wasn’t able to get a weekly update in Sunday. I did miss Sunday for the previous week, but here it is now, better late than never!

Blog Update
My classes are coming up in August. I’m not too sure how it’s going to cut into everything, but given how my classes are scheduled, I may be able to get plenty of work done and have free time on my days off. We’ll see.

Site Update
So just yesterday it was announced that there is going to be a remake of the 1999 anime of the manga, Houshin Engi! I’ve been ready for this since 2007, you guys. I’ve been ready for 10 years! Actually, here is a funny story here that kind of made me feel like I was in the Twilight Zone. So, the news about the Houshin Engi anime remake was announced July 31, 2017. I just realized a few hours later when I was working on the Houshin Engi wiki I started up four years ago, that I started it in… wait for it… July 31, 2013. That’s, uh… quite the coincidence. Am I psychic? Like, that actually creeped me out a bit. Holy– o.O

Anyway, Houshin Engi is my all-time favorite manga! I LOVE it! So this news made my day. I had to deal with some super annoying people a few hours later, and even they couldn’t ruin my mood, and I have very little patience with people. In response to this announcement, I’ll be trying to pay attention to any more news as it comes and post it here. I’ll also be translating ALL lyrics for the music of the old 1999 anime, this INCLUDES character songs. Truth be told, I actually already translated the majority of them, but I’ll finish the rest up and post them all here. I started them since there were only about a couple or so translated, so I’m going to stop being selfish and share them with others.

Of the current character songs I have translated from the 1999 anime, I have completed all but one of the first character album, and I have four more to do on the second album.

That rounds up this week’s update. As always minna-san, stay frosty. ヾ(⌐■_■)ノ♪♬
