Already another year has passed. Actually, “already” is not an appropriate word to use for me. In truth, 2013 went by quite slowly, almost painfully slow at some moments.
Every new year is also my blog’s anniversary. It has taken me 4 years, but I finally held my first giveaway in celebration. Sadly, I only had 6 entries. I know that my prizes weren’t exactly spectacular, but I had expected much more entries given how people had nothing to lose. Worse, out of the 4 total winners, only 2 had replied to my emails. The giveaway was quite the silent disaster.
As for my daily life, I have been hanging out with my friend quite a bit this month. We played games and just chatted about games in the living room. Of course, I still watched anime and read manga, but not so much in building my Valvrave models, playing PSO2, or updating the blog.
A stack of all the different series of manga that I’m reading currently. Some of them I favor more and read them quite frequently, and some others I’m taking my time on. Finishing them quickly would mean having to buy the next volume sooner.
With regards to anime, I started watching:
- Sakura-sou no Pet na Kanojo
- Haiyore! Nyaruko-san
- Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren
- Super Sonico The Animation
…with Valvrave 2nd season and Sora no Otoshimono Forte finished. Gundam Build Fighters and Kamen Rider Gaim were also really interesting. Needless to say, all the series I started were great too. I never played of the game, SoniComi, but now I get to enjoy that series without needing the effort to read.
Speaking of visual novels, I haven’t been playing any Futsuu no Fantasy or Renai 0 Kilometer. Instead, I have been playing a lot of Baldr Sky – Drive 1. I really enjoyed its demos two years ago and I have been meaning to play the full game since. Coming to the conclusion that there is no better time than now, I got hooked as soon as I started playing.
The entirety of the Valvrave I Hito itself has been completed. All that is left are the weapons, which will be no easy task. In addition to filling the gaps on the katana’s sheaths, I’m working on isolating Volc Arm (a rifle). Another 10 to 15 hours of work time and I should be done.
