So yeah, been a while since I've done one of these! Long story short, I'll write comments as I watch the movie. It's been a LONG TIME since I've watched a tokusatsu movie, and even longer since a Super Sentai one, so I'm looking forward to it.
Here we go! )

Finished the Shinkenger episodes last night. Finally. It was a pretty good series. I still have to watch the cross-over movie, but I'll do that later. I'm itching to start into Gekiranger.

Been playing Pokemon too. There are still a few things I need to catch in Diamond that I forgot about. I'm also going to have to play Sapphire again at some point too. Then there's SoulSilver I still need to do more things in. Plus, there's been some news regarding Gen 5 as well, so that's been cool. They shows the starters and trainers. I'm really loving the new trainer designs.

Anyways, hoping I can get to hang out with my buddies tonight. They're at the college, but I don't have a car right now, so I'm stuck at home. I'll watch Gekiranger in the meantime, I guess.

Fun fun

I've noticed a lack of wanting to update my LJ currently. I blame the WoW: Cataclysm alpha info leak. Sooo much new stuff to see. I don't currently play the game, but with the new expansion, I might get back into it at some point.

Saturday was [livejournal.com profile] zipchan's graduation. Yay! There was a party at Tsubaki. I took some no-bake cookies and my Kamen Rider W themed mochi (Cyclone/Joker EXTREME!). I knew the mochi was a bit overcooked, but it was still edible. Zip liked that it was W colored too, which made my night. I put a lot of work into it. I also got her a cute kitten card, and I wrote/drew a silly in-joke involving their cats that she really liked. I was glad, I wasn't sure if it would be all that funny ^^; She got a few other gifts too. One, the "degree" her roomates made for her, was EPIC. So hilarious and awesome, though it's hard to describe, you'd have to have seen it in person. As for songs, it was a good mix of all sorts of stuff in various languages. I tried singing "Wind" from Naruto and kept laughing during the chorus because everyone else in the room was singing the engrish...good times. Afterward, we had a group picture outside, did the Velociraptor call, and "Jiiii~"-ed poor [livejournal.com profile] artikgato into a corner. ^^; Got lost a little on the way to drop a clubmate off at her apartment, but it was ok. She's nice to chat with. Fun day indeed.

I was going to spend part of this day watching Shinkenger, but got distracted by WoW things again. Oh well ^^; I'm sure I'll finish it eventually.
hikarikirameku: (Yay!)
So I found my headphones, I can watch videos again, and a whole lot of new stuff has been fansubbed, so there's a whole lot of stuff to keep me busy...starting with Kamen Rider...
Double ep. 31-32 )
Then there's Shinkenger. I'm gonna watch some more episodes shortly, but figured I should mention the crossover first. I noticed the Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger movie has been subbed. I'll watch the movie proper once I actually finish that series. I'm getting close. I actually nabbed it for the ending. Conveniently, the textless version is added as an extra video in the set. Woot! Popped that into Movie Maker, mirrored it, and now have a video to practice the ending dance to ^-^ It's actually kinda funny since the text from the karaoke and subs are mirrored too :P I hope I'll be able to learn the dance, it would be so much fun to do that with the others. It's time I learn at least ONE Japanese show related dance.

I've also started downloading Gekiranger, since that's next up on the list of series to watch. Might as well anyways, since Goseiger's still ongoing. It's easier to watch a finished series first. Watched the first episode at the girls' apartment and thought it looked really good, so I'm looking forward to it.

OK, so Nashi-con is over, and I finally have time to post my take on everything that happened. All in all, it was exhausting but a lot of fun!
Nashi-con list of awesome and stuff )

Post-con staff dinner at Tsubaki was a ton of fun. My voice was still a bit rough, but I still managed to sing ok. I was nervous, cause I usually don't sing in front of others very often. I got to sing Safety Dance, Mezase Pokemon Master, Karma (as a trio), jumped in during Climax Jump, Shinkenger's opening, and Bitch, sang a duet during Man of Constant Sorrow, and my last song was Bleeding Love (should have done it first, before I tore my voice up from the low songs ^^; )
The guys singing Tricky was really fun to listen to, we got rickrolled, and they played some of the most random stuff. Also got to eat Takoyaki for the first time, it was really good. Probably forgetting some stuff too, I was tired and there was so much stuff going on. It was so, SO much fun and I'm glad I finally got to go. I love karaoke.

I'm 24 today. I do not look it, lol. This is not a bad thing though. Already got my birthday present, it was the Kivat plushie. Then I got the Kingdom Hearts necklace from my online buddy, Ninja. I'll get a bit of spending money for Nashi-con too. Don't have anything special planned for tonight. Just the usual Wednesday Nashi-con committee meeting, and I'll get to see my buddies there.

I managed to do something semi-productive, which was to let Perry know the game room thread on the forums needed some attention. I also found out our game room sponsor went bankrupt o.o; So that means a bit more work for Perry to arrange something. There's a lot of gamers at Nashi though, so I'm not too worried, we should be able to put together a decent game room on our own. Since they need TVs, I offered two 13" ones we hardly use.

Shinkenger and Double Ep. 27-28 stuff )

Anyways, that's it for now. Time for sleep.

Go figure the weekend the air breaks, it's going to be in the mid-80's the entire time. Joy. It's generally tolerable in the main part of the house, but my room gets way too hot in the afternoon. So I generally don't get online til nighttime. Kinda sucks, cause there's times I wanna watch Shinkenger, but don't want to deal with the heat.

Last night's Nashi meeting was pretty awesome. We play-tested some stuff from OTAKU while in the Russel House cafeteria, which kinda added to the hilarity of my having to do a Kamen Rider henshin pose during it. There was also the usual ramblings of random topics, REALLY random. At one point a simple comment about the sprinklers and a commercial sparked an entire discussion on Slip 'n Slides XD Just one more reason why the group I hang out with is awesome. Between hanging out with everyone at the club, Russel House, and parking lot, I didn't get home til 1am...it was glorious. I love being able to come and go as I please...well, as long as Aaron isn't using the car we share >.>;

As for shows, I've got one more to add to the list. Although, I can't remember if it was Dekaranger or Gekiranger they suggested...I think they mentioned it was the one that ran beside Den-O, and if that's the case, it was Gekiranger. Fine by me, I thought the costumes from that looked kinda cool with the cat designs. I like cats. It'll have to wait til I'm done with Shinkenger though. I'm up to episode 27, which was hilarious.

Speaking of Shinkenger, I went and downloaded the music for it already. The opening I had to kinda warm up to. I'm still more fond of the ending, only because there's a movie version with the Shinkengers singing along too, and it's catcher that way. I also have a techno version of both from the Exit Trance Tokusatsu 3 album, they're not too bad.

On an awesome note, one of my online friends I've known for a long time sent me a birthday present. A Kingdom Hearts necklace that looks like the one Sora wears. He had told me he'd get me something, and I'd suggested it like 2 months ago, but I didn't expect him to actually get it for me. One of these days, I need to get a PS3 so we can game online again. That's how we met in the first place, on an online PS2 game, but the servers for it closed less than a year after it launched. There's an RPG I'd probably be interested in playing with him. In the meantime though, we chat on MSN and AIM.
hikarikirameku: (Bite!)
I am actually really enjoying watching Shinkenger now. I think it's the characters, they all have different personalities and the interactions between them can be rather entertaining. Not to mention I've gotten up to episode 18, which covers Genta's introduction. Genta is WIN. He's hilarious, and he seems to get along well with Chiaki, who I also like. Plus maybe now Takeru will start to loosen up more. While I'm not particularly fond of the color gold, he does use the kanji for light as his symbol, "hikari", which I am incredibly fond of (might have something to do with being my screename for several years XD). Am currently downloading more episodes, I ran out.

I also found out waiting to watch the Chou Den-O/Decade movie wasn't a bad idea after all. The Director's Cut was just recently released on TV-Nihon, so I'll get to watch that version instead. I was gonna hold off on watching it indefinitely, but at last Nashi meeting Artik was telling me about the Arms Monsters from Kiva being in it and possessed by Imagin, and I was all "Hell yeah!", so I'm gonna watch it. ...because apparently the best way to get me to watch stuff is to tell me there's Kiva stuff in it ^^; Except, ironically, the Kamen Rider Decade series itself.

Now, there is some Cookie Dough ice cream calling me, so I shall partake of it. Then watch more Shinkenger XD

My brother left early this morning, I managed to get up in time to see him off. Probably won't see him again til summertime.

My parents went looking for new houses in the area to rent, because the one we're in is kinda small for as many people are here now. Plus, this one was kinda temporary anyways. So far they've looked at a few in the Irmo area, near the mall. Crazy traffic aside, it would ROCK being that close to the mall. It would just take a bit longer to get to Columbia. Dunno if we'll get any of the houses there though.

Watched episodes 25 and 26 of Double. Creepy doll was creepy...when it wasn't squeaking like a rubber duck, then it was kinda funny. Weather dude is always creepy, I don't like him. I felt bad for Wakana, I have a feeling things are not going to go well for her in the future. The Frog gadget that Philip made was cute, but I wonder if it has any battle capabilities. Also, in Ep. 25 you can clearly see the Henshin marks on Shotaro's face, I'd been wondering what exactly they were supposed to look like. The fact that they're even there reminds me of Kiva just a little though. Ep. 26 had the Cyclone/Metal finisher for the first time. It looks cool, but still not as flashy as Heat/Metal.

Also been watching a few more episodes of Shinkenger, but it's really hard to marathon that one, since it gets on my nerves after a while. I blame the repetitive episode set-up, and it doesn't help I generally dislike the giant mecha battles. However, I do like the characters, and the story bits. Also starting to remember the character names...Takeru, Chiaki, Mako, Ryu-something...err... I'll get them down eventually ^^; I have a bad habit of just remembering them by their color.
hikarikirameku: (Eat your head!)
Good lord it's been boring here. Seriously, even with Nii-san here, there's nothing to do. The twit won't even try watching Kiva, even though I thought he'd like it >.< Well...he said he might try the movie, but I'm still gonna have to explain half the series for him to understand it. I was hoping to do at least some sort of sibling thing together before he leaves, was hoping to watch some stuff with him. As of right now though, I am rather sad and disappointed. Maybe I can still lure him to the Nashi club meeting on Thursday, he likes games, I told him there's a game room.

I watched the first two episodes of Shinkenger. My buddies weren't kidding, it is VERY Japanese. I like how the show uses brushes for abilities and stuff, reminds me of Okami a little. Since this is a sentai, watching the battles is rather painful, the special effects are even worse than Kamen Rider. Still, the non-battle stuff isn't bad, the characters seem amusing. I've been told it gets better as it goes on, so I'll keep at it a little longer. Not like I have anything else to watch right now, I haven't found where to download the other shows on my list yet.

Today was Hailey's first birthday. She's just a dog, so we didn't do anything special. She didn't mind, she was just as happy running around the back yard chewing on bamboo sticks.

Tomorrow I have driving lessons. I hope those go well.
