August, 2009:

Anime update

Since we’ve entered the new season pretty completely by now, here’s my updated list of currently watched anime:

Umineko no naku koro ni | うみねこのく頃に | When They Cry 3: based on the sound novels by 07th Expansion, a seemingly normal closed circle murder mystery case turns into something really weird when witches get involved… feels like playing the game on fast forward but it’s nice to see some stuff animated

Shugo Chara Doki!: Yeah, I’m still watching this…. XD

Kanamemo | かなめも: cuuuute story about a girl who’s just been orphaned joining an all-female newspaper delivery company. Based on a 4-koma (there seem to be a lot of those now), sort of sketchy (yuri I have no problem with but there’s some questionable age-related sketchiness XD)

Saki: a sports-type anime about… mahjong. XD 95% female cast, lots of implied yuri, overly dramatic motions for a table-based game XD

Detective Conan: well, obviously. I mean, until this show finally goes off the air I will watch it. Becaaause.

Canaan: action-based series, only seen one episode, lots of shooting involved. looks interesting.

Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: well, who can say no to Zetsubou sensei? I’m surprised it got a fourth season though!

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsuu… season 2?: so, this has been kind of mis-handled by the production company (let’s make people think there are new episodes! LOL SRY ONLY REPLAYING… actually JK NEW EPS THROWN IN 8D let’s watch the same events happen over and over and over again! yeeeeeeeey!) but I am still watching. passively.

Hayate no Gotoku 2nd Season: well, I finally caught up with the 1st season, so now I need to catch up with the second… hilarious narrator, little continuing plot, generally ridiculous… and Kugimiya Rie <3 Yokuwakaru Gendai Mahou: ridiculously fanservice-y show about “modern day magic” (a.k.a. using programming on computer for magic). based on a light novel that was definitely aimed at guys…. still, entertaining XD

I don’t -think- I’ve skipped any series, but I may go back and edit this later.

Eeeeeeeeeeee!

No, I’m not screaming.
I mean, Eee.
Just three Es.
Surely you know what that means?

Eee!

Do you know now?

Ai (甘苺)

New computer! Well, netbook.

She’s an Eee PC 1005ha-v, in pink, naturally.
Right now she’s a replacement for a normal laptop (mine had a major meltdown about two weeks ago now) and is holding up pretty well. Video is the only aspect that really falters – watching 480i on crunchyroll is painful, but standard definition is fine. I do plan on buying a new fullsize laptop (13-15″, haven’t decided what yet) but I’m holding out until at least October when Windows 7 will be released. This also gives a chance for hardware to change up a little more – the way things are now, components aren’t much better than my laptop from two years ago.

Here she is with some of her friends, a pink Western Digital external hdd and pink wireless mouse with tiny receiver.

gradient fade

side view

This small detail is something I love about the design – look closely – the pink gradually turns to white rather than abruptly changing. <3 bumpy touchpad

The touchpad has little bumps all over it, which took a little getting used to.

fake sd card

sd card slot

The SD card slot doesn’t spring-eject, so I’m not a big fan of it edit: it appears it does spring-eject! but at the beginning it certainly didn’t. So I’m not sure what caused it to suddenly start working XD;
It came with this cute little white fake SD card in the slot XD
