Popped past the local store, found Azumanga Daioh! Omnibus book for... wait for it... $36! Purchase of the year? Definitely, you know my love for the series (and of Azuma's humour style) and the book adds itself well to my DVD set. Nice one.

I'm not really sure, but I think it's usually hiragana... and that version wins the Google hits battle, 295M to 200M...

Is it true that there in Japan there are few keys on the keyboard and to type there is a corrector mechanism that chooses the right Kanji, or Hiragana/Katakana? BTW, I suck at Kanjis :(

And no sooner has it been home for a few days that it's now being borrowed...

...by mum.

OH GOD, WHAT THE HECK HAVE I CREATED? :shock:

(Surely the above situation is just too weird to contemplate.)

Yes. We choose kanji/katakana by pressing space key or "convert(変換)" key.

I think most people in Japan use a similar keyboard to the one you're using and type Japanese the same way... apparently there used to be keyboards specifically for Japanese, but they're slower or something.

They definitely don't use this, which was an April Fool's prank by Google Japan: http://www.businessinsider.com/googles- ... drum-kit-2

So Desucon was last weekend and it was once again a great event! :) Not that good level of cosplaying this year, though. Must have been because of the beginning of the summer, so no one had so much time to make the costumes.

I also found some new figures to my collection! \o/ The Francesca Lucchini and Charlotte e Yeager pairing from Strike Witches. So now my collection has 10 figures, and I'm really running out of space. :D There also was a very nice Hatsune Miku figure, which was maybe even 35cm tall but it cost 140€ so I had to leave her waiting until the next event. :/

Yay, the summer season is finally here! And it's already so much better than the spring season was. Now there's atleast 7 good shows coming (And two more were put on wait mode for the Blu-rays.). Then there's ~5 shows that might or might not be good depending on how average they end up being. But having 7+2 definitely good series' is quite well compared to spring, when there was just one good show(which was based on the characters eating each others' drool..) and one or two above average ones. The rest I just forced to the end. (Propably should have dropped them after 3 episodes so I could have released the old show pressure a bit.)
Still, I doubt any of the shows will get a pure 10 from me, but we'll see how they develop.

Post Re: Anime/Manga/Figure/Otaku weirdness -thread
So last weekend was the annual Tracon which I decided to go too. The weekend got a bad start when I noticed in the train towards the location that I had forgotten the ticket home. :doh: Welp, that was 15€ down the toilet. But then again, luckily the location where Tracon is held has about 6000 people limit, so I knew the tickets wouldn't run out at location. If I had forgotten the ticket for Desucon, it would have been a completely different case.

But yeah, it was yet another great event. I met some new people again and saw the AMV-competition for the first time. The quality wasn't that great, but it was nice to see them. You just can see the difference in the fandom in these, when the AMVs made in US and some other countries are made by a group of adult men while all of the winners and second places and else in the finnish competition were underaged women. :D

There were not that special cosplay suits this time. The Dog Days ones were cool, and the Lollipop Chainsaw girl was pretty much an exact replica from the game. Oh and the girl from Penguindrum was also pretty nice. Otherwise... Pretty normal.

And then... I bought these: Makoto Nanaya from Blaz Blue and Gokou Ruri from Ore no Imouto. Gosh, this hobby is getting expensive, though. While Gokou cost just 32€, Makoto was 152€. :shock: I had a 20 minute thinking period at the booth, checking the figure through completely and wondering whether it would be worth it or not. But then I thought this was going to be the last con for this year anyways and I got past the previous conventions without spending that much so why not take her.

When I started watching Fairy Tail (near the beginning of this year), I was scared at her in the beginning, but then throughout the episodes, you will find out she is not as scary as she seems. Or maybe she is, but it's not all of her. :rofl:

I finally finished Ouran High School Host Club (surprisingly good!), but I've done very little in terms of anime.

Oh, I tell a lie. Went to see "Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below". Blimey, that title didn't explain the half of it! Extremely well made, loads of interesting bits that made following it along a joy, definitely a recommendation from me.

Post Re: Anime/Manga/Figure/Otaku weirdness -thread
So i'll post all animes i watched till here:

1 - To Aru Majutsu no Index - Nice anime, cool story, Index is kawaii (silly lolis, i'm becoming one of them e.e)... i'm planning to watch season 2 at next year, maybe Railgun also.
2 - InuYasha - Stopped at ep. 34 thanks to fail downloading servers. Another good anime, quite nostalgic here on Brazil since it was on open TV some time ago.
3 - Code Geass - I doubt i'll watch some anime so good as this. Lelouch is simply a GENIUS. "The world cannot be changed by pretty words alone." All episodes watched, but not OVA's.
4 - Another - Eternal fear of umbrellas after watching this. All episodes watched, including the OVA's. Not the best anime ever but... np in watching.
5 - Fairy Tail - Stopped at ep. 14 thanks to fail downloading servers. Very good, I WANT TO CONTINUE WATCHING BEFORE I GET DROWNED INTO SPOILERS! >.<
6 - Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's - Stopped at ep. 28... i really need to repeat? You know that an anime is really good when you is so excited watching it even after reading full spoilers of it.
7 - Baka to Test - Stopped at ep. 5, this time cuz it's broken. It's funny although opening is extremely annoying at my ears e.e
8 - Sword Art Online - In-releasing anime. Till now, it's extremely good, and KiriSuna4NEver!(edited: Kirito is not so enjoyable as before and Suguha is better than Asuna, so...)
9 - High School DxD - Yep, i'm quite hentai. Watch only if you like some ecchi. History is nice and you can have some fun watching. 2nd season incoming :D

Incoming to watch: Mirai Nikki, Puella Magi Madoka Magika, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Highschool of the Dead.

Welp.. I have a bit under 400 shows completed now and I haven't watched Death Note. But then again, I propably never will. :P

I'm getting into the trouble of not finding any good comedy oldies anymore. Pretty much all of them just haven't really been funny. The last one I went through was Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, but most of the time I was just facepalming and hoping one of the main characters just disappeared. So yeah. Having a short break from comedies for now while watching Seikon no Qwaser (oh god, it's bad too...) and then I guess I'll give Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu a go...

Hehe, Baka to Test... I made a nice remix of the opening. But then it got pulled out of Youtube....

I already took enough spoilers of it. Argh. Also there is quite a rivalry between Death Note and Code Geass, so...

@TS: Also i didn't saw the episode when Erza kisses me and... oh wait, i'm dreaming. :rofl:
@Topic: I forgot to put in Ao no Exorcist that i'm currently watching, 20/25 episodes watched already. Bonus: yesterday there was a blackout here so i started HOTD, atm 3/12.
