Ahh. It's been a Pretty eventful week I guess. Nothing Life changing has happened but it's been pretty eventful in a small way. Where to begin..
One of my students was caught shoplifting earlier this week (During Class time no less) They called the school and asked for me. His parents are in JP so I guess he considered me the closest thing he had to a guardian (Or maybe he just thought I was the Most Lenient and would keep it a secret from his family HAHAHA) Anyway' I picked this idiot up from the store he shoplifted from. He was trying to steal a Game. I really didn't understand why since this kid is even richer than I am LOL. Maybe it was for the thrill. He's still an idiot tho. He was lucky they didn't press charges on him. Hopefully he's learned his lesson.
In other Profession search news, My Evaluation is later this week too and I still have some finals to take..
yay how exciting haha -_-...
In Free time News, I watched some interesting things this week. The usual stuff I watch of course but I also watched a few new things and rewatched some old stuff. With my recent acquisition of the BERSERK CCG cards I also started reading Berserk again this week. I got through like book 14 last night. With all the new stuff that's been coming out lately I kind of wanted to remind myself why BERSERK is considered to me one of the Greatest things ever written by Humankind but alas that's why I felt the need to reread it (It's prob my 6th time or so) So, I now remember why. LOL
I watched Shurayuki Hime again this week since the DVD was just released in the states. Man that is a cool film. There's nothing really original or life changing about it but It's just a cool film. Yumiko Shaku is So Pretty in this Movie ^-^. And as always Donnie Yen's Choreography Is Awesome. He really did a lot for the action. It looks great (to me anyway) The story is not bad either. Events move a bit fast and some things are just too convenient. Development at times was a bit too fast paced for my tastes Of course it would have helped if the film was a bit longer but for what was there it was cool. Oh well, It's worth watching for Yumiko Shaku and Donnie Yen's Choreography.
In other Live Action Viewing, I watched all the Juon Movies again for fun this week. Man, Those movies are pretty scary. Directing was Top Notch especially in the TV movie ones. Shimizu Takashi did incredible considering he had such a low budget in the beginning. The Theatrical is the Best of course but there's certainly something about the lower budget first 2 that the theatrical doesn't have. If you like Japanese Horror (Ring, Dark Water, Audition) I Highly Recommend these films!!
As for Anime Viewing, Just the usual stuff, Inuyasha, Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, FMP Fumoffu Spec 2, etc. All stuff that's Great. If you're Not watching any of them I highly recommend you do -_^
In Collecting News, My Booster boxes of Yu Yu Hakusho 1st ed Ankoku Bujutsukai (Dark Tournament) came in. I haven't even had the chance to look at them yet. Probably because these items also arrived-
MP-01 Masterpiece Convoy (Optimus Prime)- Great Item! If you're going to get one Definetly Get the Takara one!! Pristine Color scheme and Long Smokestacks! Forget Hasbro!
BT-02 Lamboru (Sideswipe)- Nice. I still Love Smokescreen more tho. Then Again Smokescreen is a Rally WRX ^-^
Gundam Seed Robot Anime Heroine figures- These are Really Nice. There are 3 in the set- Lacus, Cagalli and Fllay. Lacus is Super Nice. This is Probably the only way to get a completed version of Lacus in her Kimono type Outfit from the 3rd OP of GS. Cagalli Kicks Ass of course and Fllay is also very Nice. I guess to some ppl these figures may come a bit pricy at 3800yen a pop but They are Worth it!
Blitz Gundam 1/100- What Can I say? But It's About time!!! Now Give us The rest of our 1/100 kits!!!!
SOC GX-19 Getter Ryger- As with GX-018 Getter Dragon this one is also a Must! Now Bring on GX-020 Getter Poseidon!!!
Berserk Card Game Boosters and Starters- Man, the distribution in the packs I opened are horrible!! I wonder if I'll be able to complete my collection. I will prob just open all I have for myself, since not many ppl here can play anyway since all the cards are in Japanese. Which really sucks, Cause I'd really Love someone to Play with. I guess for now, I'll just buy them for the Colored Miura Artwork and maybe make a deck and play when I head back to Japan sometime next year most likely. The cards are Beautiful! Yeah It's a shame they pull the whole parrallel foil Rare card thing but man, If you're a Berserk Fan these are Worth it for the Art alone!!!
So There's Class, Finals, Shipping preorders, Collecting, Physical Training, Damn Kids in class stealing Video Games and dont forget the Drama of Life. I guess it's Ok to say I've been pretty occupied this week. Not necessarily a bad thing but man, It's Hectic. Not to mention I've been feeling very Unmotivated lately.. -_-
Well, I guess there's nothing really interesting left to say. Maybe I should try to go and sleep now .. (Haven't been getting much of that either)
