first post of the year! very belated, but yanno... spending all my time playing ffxiv etc etc yep. I spent the past ~10 days on it trying to rank in whacking weeds on my server, and before that, gluing marbles onto my clothes. I spent my time last season doing the same thing, but leveling my botanist from 1-80, so it was very nice being able to go back in and be able to actually score points this time :D
I managed to watch some anime/tv during the insane hours and I couldn't pay attention enough to finish watching most of the ones I started orz but I did end up rewatching ping pong & finally watched nodame cantabile. the op/ed were really nostalgic lol I would play them on repeat when the show was airing. ping pong & nodame are def like my fav comfort foods. I wish space brothers had a dub so I could watch it too >_> picture-in-picture mode is not kind to subtitles, but also I had to dedicate all my brain power to pulling weeds and picking leaves LOL
not much else to talk about other than more ffxiv gibberish so I will graciously save everyone including myself from it. TTYL~~~~~~~ I have been using xD so much more since playing

got around to moving those ffxiv posts LOL so now I have to think about what else I can talk about...
I'm sure most people have already watched this music video but posts here anyway ^^ I luv how pika and eevee are designed and the fanart for it is also soooo kyuuuutee!!!!!! pt2 of dlc is also out soon and I am like aaaahhhh because my brain is still ffxiv (and I cannot dual wield lol) but still hype!!!!

original cap: P1KACHUGET

my ancient R4 from like 10+ years ago still works, and thus I decided to open up this lil time capsule... the only games on it are ace attorney 1-4, inazuma eleven, & tokimeki memorial girl's side 1-3... that checks out tbh yes I still do love all three series LOL esp since I have been itching to pick up an date sim / otome game recently... thankfully tmgs2 scratches that itch. I don't remember much other than x & y characters existing, so it's been fun... makes me miss these two from tmgs3 tho >_>;
I suck sm at stat raisers but they are fun imo!!!!!! I always had such a hard time with these games bc the love rivals would always be upset with me and it was annoying to diffuse the bombs and I'm a simp for raising friendship so I never get a "good" ending LOL maybe that's why I love karen and miyo so much, even tho um I want their endings too... and it will be ezier now that there's an eng patch...
on a side note, it was a struggle to get the fanpatch of dot kareshi to work on this pc. the only troubleshoot method I found online was to tinker with the high dpi setting via properties, but it didn't resolve my particular problem. this post helped me with the solution, and it turns out all I had to do was add japanese supplement fonts to my system settings... lol heheh yay
and also a tiny shoutout to pacthesis for all their sim date flash games LOL I sincerely admire the amount of hard work they put into each of their games and I definitely need to replay them inb4 flash becomes obsolete 4 good O_O I remember having to look up guides to play these omg good times
trying to think of what else I liked & I guess just the arcana & fire emblem awakening *foggy memory*
edit: I just remembered I love ygotf3 but it is too bad my brain is broken & refuses to duel... u_u

ok, I am gonna try to make a journal post at least once a month!!!!
in the past month, I ordered a yu-gi-oh necklace from supergroupies, bought some games from the steam summer sale, and caught up on some manga. I must now stay my spending hand for the next few months... >__<;; on the bright side, I now have some nice QoL mods for the steam ver of stardew valley, and I am caught up with delicious in dungeon & toilet-bound hanako-kun. I'm a lil worried tho... will I ever get to playing umineko or palais de reine...? uhhh...hmm.. well they were on sale so.
the past week or so was spent re-reading kenkyo kenjitsu o motto ni ikite orimasu, my favorite webnovel ever!!!!!!! yep it's still on hiatus, and there hasn't been new fanart or fanfics since I last checked. hmm.. yep yep. that checks out, unfortunately...
I recently found out a chapter of how I became a pokemon card was scanlated!!!!! It's drawn by himeno kagemaru, a tcg artist, and features short stories revolving around his card illusts. plz... more... there's also some lq raws floating around ahhhhh but 🥺🤲
sry sry one more manga plug!!! mahjong diva obaka miiko by katayama masayuki is also super cute and I hope more gets scanlated ^^ it's been a few months since the most recent ch but I have hope! and imo the art is soooo KY00T!!!!!!!

I finished watching thunderbolt fantasy s2! I'll watch the second movie sometime before s3 airs I guess... I am even less of a movie person than an anime person but I did watch the legend of hei yesterday. I don't have much of an opinion or it other than yea it is pretty lol :P
...does anyone not know of the golden boy ova (1995; 1998 eng dub)?! I've watched some clips (mostly bc of mitsuo iso) but it never clicked for me to watch the entire thing ANYWAY we finally watched it and are so sad that there's only six episodes total. it was funnier than expected, and doug smith rly carried the entire dub!!! I wish he got to voice act in more stuff!!!!
lastly, happy belated bday to mr. sylvain fire emblem LOL and WELCOME BACK ANIPOKE!!!!!!! T_T <3

I wanted to write something since I've had this site for a full month nao, but I don't really have much to say. hmm... OK well I miss playing PIU! (surprise surprise LOL) so I'll just share a few of the songs I have fond memories of learning how to play.
1st "hard" song I practiced playing & the only song IK when to spin LOL
I practiced doubles & cross overs with I'm Sorry D8 and this song
I just started 2 get the hang of this too... wish it was avail on GC!
I bought the $20+ tier for vol 1-34 of SPACE BROTHERS!!!! BECK and a bunch of other manga are included, but honestly $20 for all these volumes of space bros is already such a great deal! I've been trying to stay my sword (online shopping) hand for yrs and finally kita kore!!!
The only thing this sale could have included to be even better wld be Nodame Cantabile imo! O_O OK Kodansha actually publishes a lot of other good stuff, but Nodame is the other long series I have been wanting to buy nyhehe ^__^;;
check it out! or it's ok if you don't~ I just wanted to share da luv.

w00t!!!! I made a diary page & I'm gonna use it as a twitty spillover to admire whatever my current hyperfixations are LOL
so... I've been wanting to play a new rhythm game since I haven't been able to play PIU & I was in between choosing proj diva & groove coaster (having played neither before), but I ended up getting groove coaster since it went back on sale & then used saved $$$ on the undertale DLC!!! and wow, playing tappy taps really does reset your brain, like a good *BONK* to the head... loving dat smooth brain feel.
OK! next topic: since making a neocities acct, I have been having a blast browsing ppls sites! I especially love looking thru fanshrines to check out whatever niche (or not) anime etc. ppl are into, yanno? and then I discovered thunderbolt fantasy and wow do I love watching these lil guys move. I just can't help but feel a deep fondness when the puppets wave their lil hands and tap their foreheads. the before broadcast special on CR can also be a very satisfying watch on its own. also I wish lin setsu a wore the jester hat 24/7 (& that the CR subtitle names matched jpn pronounciation/dub) I would luv to talk more about this subject another time but for now I will just say that gen urubotchi is probably living his best puppet life and that is GREAT!
I finally started watching goldran w my friends because the chara designs and poses and hands etc etcetc are sooooo cuuuuute!!!! I was curious about the chara designer, since j-decker's was atsuko ishida & I luv her art sm! anywayz goldran's cd is hirotoshi takaya who is *shock* the main cd for ygo zexal!!!! I know, I know, very exciting stuff huh? the noodle arms + big round hands are very moe T_T *ez 2 plz*
o yea one last thing hmm, I think I will make a doremi shrine next >:3 mostly bc I want to compile an ep recc list since it's the bestest cutest
