Hi everyone! Been awhile since my last update, eh? Time sure flies by fast. <.<
Anyway, compared to last summer, fall & winter has been quite UNeventful. Mostly been working a lot more work hours...which I honestly don't mind 'cuz I need the monies, but whew, it sure gets TIRING. That, and I've somewhat went back into hermit/lurking mode. Other than working, been spending whatever free time I had on watching new anime, gaming, and browsing around on Youtube.
Recent anime I got into are Blade & Soul
(which is based on the MMORPG of the same name). Character designs isn't too bad; it definitely has some similarities to the game (but nothing can compare to Hyung-Tae Kim's designs). Wish they did a better job on the animation though...which is rather surprising 'cuz it's done by Studio GONZO (and they always do phenomenal work), but perhaps it wasn't given enough budget towards it. I do like the main character, Alka, though; and I really like the ending song "Rainbow" by LEGO BIG MORL. But overall, it isn't too bad.
Another anime I also got into is Selector Infected WIXOSS
. It's like a mixture of Angelic Layer
, Puella Magi Madoka Magica
, & Yu-gi-oh!
put together, and I like it so far. Guess I'm a sucker to some of these weird & semi-tragic kind of anime, lol.
I got into the MMORPG, Aura Kingdom
. It's a pretty fun online game. You get to pick a main class (out of 10 classes now I believe), and later on you can pick a subclass (out of the remaining 9). Skill animations are pretty cool, it's not too grindy (not until around levels 55-60), and the partying & guild system is pretty cool. The game does run into technical difficulties though due to the game company that it's under (Aeria Games). But outside those problems, it really isn't bad. So if any of you are looking for a new online game to play, check it out! aurakingdom.aeriagames.com/
I'm in the Hydra
server and in the guild Harmony
(which is a really awesome & chill guild, btw). My IGN is Serahngel
(battlebow/katar class). ...I'm currently not playing at the moment though, due to preparations for...
So yeah, with summer coming around the corner, I'm hoping it will be eventful again (in a good way at least). Pretty much gonna kick it off with another year at ACEN
2014 which will be on May 16-18 (a week from today) at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and Donald E. Stephens Convention Center (and surrounding hotels) at Rosemont, IL. So if any of you are going, I'll be at artist alley (with a few friends) at tables E008 & E009.
I'm also confirmed for Anime Midwest
on July 4-6, 2014, and also Kollision Con
on Jan. 2-4, 2015. Once I get the maps & info for those, I'll post them up at a later time. I also plan on going to Con Alt Delete
on Dec. 19-21, 2014 (which is actually right after my birthday), but we'll see how that goes.
Welp, hope to see some of you at ACEN
! Ta-ta for now!
