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♪♬


sol’s Weekly Update #3

So last week there wasn’t an update. Because of work, for one, but mainly because there really wasn’t anything to update, let alone talk about. Yeah I know, I’m less entertaining than an old guy beating a tree with a stick, but you know what, nothing beats that.

Blog Update
So recently I found out about this pretty neat app called, Duolingo. In case the name itself didn’t give you any ideas about what it’s for, it’s an app that helps you learn different languages. They have a pretty nice selection, and I think they’re still adding some languages as they just added Japanese about a week ago, or so I heard. It’s completely free and I heard about it from one of my mother’s co-workers, who heard that I was currently studying Japanese independently and was looking into buying Rosetta Stone as an efficient learning method.

sol’s Weekly Update #2

Back for another weekly update! There really isn’t much to cover this week at all. But, I do have a few updates to share.

First, I completely finished OZMAFIA!!, and so I’m currently working on the reviews. Originally, I was intending on posting reviews one at a time as I completed each route, but I found myself unable to stop playing. But it’s a good thing I did, given how the routes and the visual novel as a whole is written out, otherwise if I’m to be so honest, I’d probably give the majority of the routes a very low rating. I’ll admit, the visual novel has some major flaws, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it. Actually, I loved it despite it’s flaws, but I’m sure there are some who may differ in that regard if certain things bug them. The reviews will be popping up here over the course of the next few weeks.

sol’s Weekly Update #1

As I mentioned before in an earlier post, I will try and do weekly updates. These updates will be posted on Sundays, which to me is pretty much the end of the week (I always go Monday-Sunday, I know some people go Sunday-Saturday though…)

The posts for the weekly update will pretty much just consist of a lot of random events that have happened in the duration of the week. It will also include updates on things I’m working on, such as reviews or anything else I plan on posting later. I’m trying to be more active here, so hopefully this will light a fire under my butt and get things rolling. Even though I still have so much on my plate already, I do enjoy posting here on this blog, so I would like to put more effort into it.

So now that the introduction to the whole purpose behind these weekly posts, let’s get started with it.
