Kimi ni Todoke 4

I didn't like this episode very much for two reasons: 1) It was awful, and 2) We have enough "misunderstood" characters in anime and don't need one more. In the first place, it was Sawako's fault because she didn't put her feet down and act decisively enough for her "friends" to understand her clearly, and vice versa. She had a lot of opportunities to say a soundbite, but she preferred to over-interpret the body language of others and thus, give herself (and them) a perfectly predictable scenario.

This reminds me of how Asians act towards each other. That kind of interaction is unfortunately not limited to their place. I don't like the way they rely too much on unspoken and subtle hints. That kind of interaction creates unnecessary rifts between people. I've been into many misunderstandings due to my inability to read other peoples' "hints", and have been telling others that for as long as I remember. That's why while people praise my honesty, they often see me as brash and insensitive with my words. I guess I'm the anti-Sawako, the Sawako in reverse. So that's definitely a minus. If Sawako were a real girl, she'd be on my "unreliable people" list. I still do dig her (non-chibi) hair though.

For now, I'll be putting this series on probation. I've stopped reading the manga as so not to spoil my experience. I think I already know what happens next.

Stay tuned.

Poof!! I'm back...again lolz...

I apologize for the very looooooong absence. At first it was because I'm quite busy with school work and then here comes the finals so yeah busy 2x. Then again I got addicted playing games in facebook and also I've devoted my time in finishing 'Final Fantasy Dissidia' and it was worth it good game btw. Oh I forgot to mention that I'm not always at home during my sem break mainly because getting our school cards are such a hassle because of some professors sigh...Imagine waiting for that classcard in about what? 12 hours? Another reason is I've enjoyed reading books specially the new ones like 'Hush, Hush" by Becca Fitzpatrick. So as you can see I have so many distractions so my interest in anime declined.

Anyway I'm back and blogging resumes after All Souls Day since our family has to go and visit our departed love ones.

My line up this season would be:
1.Toaru Kagaku no Railgun
2. Kimi no Tosoke
3. Kobato.

Oh gosh, I have to get caught up with a lot of things so I'll try my best!

Btw, I'm not gonna continue blogging Kampfer, I don't know why I enjoyed the frist episode. I don't like it anymore. Its mediocre and the story is so confusing.

that's all!

until then...

I'm totally pissed

I'm totally pissed about the travesty called UFC 104. I was supposed to write my first impressions on Winter Sonata, but I couldn't hit "the rhythm". Sorry guys, come back tomorrow. For all of you Machida fanboys you can all suck on this...

Fuck UFC 104!
