2014 was an interesting year, I guess. I can't really say I had any life-altering events happen, and I can't say anyone else would be thrilled by it all, but I pored a lot of time into classes such as the JLPT and gift fanfics. And that's all I can really ask for.

As my special mention, this year was also the year of SeiSub for me. Technically I fell in love with them last year, but I did so much to read fics and understand their characters it became a huge part of my happiness unlike anything else. Getting involved with CLAMP stuff even more than I've ever been was awesome.

I made some friends. I started some RPs, but not as many as even last year. More than anything, I did a full Yuletide story and a treat. That's something I have't done and accomplishes the "get my act together" post I made in September.

I also wrote two friend presents. Zelda's is still pending, but I'm almost done! Mostly the descriptions are in my way. On the topic of writing, I also started journaling. I'd heard of LJ years ago (one of my favorite anime blogs was an LJ), but I never really used LJ for myself. But now that I heard of Dreamwidth, and they say most of the fandom activity is out here now, I hope to stay here for a while to come.

All I can hope for from the New Year is to write great things. And maybe find another fandom to obsess over besides TB/X. But I honestly doubt that'll happen, because man do I love me some TB/X.

Welcome to the NHK

So many S titles. There were other small things and movies, but those were the big ones. Not quite New Years yet. But have a good one!
Not so much.

This summer I wanted to keep up with some anime. I highly doubted I would, and all I've really done is tune into Sailor Moon Crystal. Tomorrow is Rei's intro ep, after all.

Other stuff I wanted to watch:

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei!
Free! Eternal Summer
Sword Art Online II
Yama no Susume Second Season

The first season of Prisma Illya was enjoyable.
Apparently there's a kiss in the second season? Maybe I'll start this one soon.

I only suppose Free! Eternal Summer, too, but I'm stalled at ep 8 of S1.
I doubt that'll go anywhere soon.

I've heard this SAO season is awful. But I watched the first season, so.
I see Kirito and Asuna in screencaps. I thought it wasn't supposed to be about them?

I don't really have much to say about Yama no Susume S2 except I'm glad it's 15 minutes an ep and 24 eps to boot. The first series of this was also fun.

I haven't really figured what else to watch from the rest of the season.
I've been involved in reading fanfics to keep up regularly.
I waited two years. Now it will finally happen. So Sailor Moon Crystal is going to come out soon, huh. July 5th! It'll be on a Saturday and early in the morning for me. But I'll be sure to try to stay up and catch it on as it's out. It's not like I don't watch Saturday morning stuff as it is when I can. I don't know what to expect, though. It's supposed to be based on the manga and I haven't read any of it. I doubt I will in the next less than a month.

I'm one of those girls who watched Sailor Moon on Toonami and Cartoon Network back in the heyday. Yeah, I know. Enjoy the dub? Well. Kinda. There were still voices I remember liking. But maybe I should blame Sailor Moon for my love of the moon and rabbits. Scratch that, the rabbits I used to own did that to me. It had its impact regardless.

Eventually, if Crystal does well, I hope for it on Toonami. Since Viz has both Crystal and the original series as of now (with new dub to boot incoming of the original) these are likely possibilities. You're throwing away good money and ratings if you don't. But this is my fangirl dream. So far we haven't gotten Inuyasha: The Final Act. Now that's already five years old now? And I thought the original was old. How time flies. I don't know how those legal issues were cleared up for the original, but I'm happy!

I have yet to buy the Sailor Moon merch that's been out. I should, right? But I see the new Cardcaptor Sakura Nendoroids (Sakura and Tomoyo) coming out and I plan on jumping on those. Syoaran must be made even if he'll have less buys. CCS Nendoroids will probably only flop if in some alternate universe they create one for each card. Not to mention a collector's nightmare. But you didn't get that idea from me! -whistles innocently- Remember, though, Tomoyo will not be Tomoyo without a camera accessory that I can use go have her tape the Sakura nendo next to her. Just sayin'. There's also that BD from NIS for CCS I want to buy, or I wonder what the boxes for the JP version look like.

Speaking of magical girls, it has come to my wallet's attention Nanoha is getting the BD treatment in Japan! Nanoha's adorable self in glorious HD. Why are they doing this to me. Stop these good things. I don't have the DVDs, so I am incredibly tempted. Except that all three seasons will be a sizeable chuck of cash and that's at least about $700 without shipping included. That's really how it goes, but you know. Here I haven't gotten the first movie. Still gotta do that. And there's even more Nanoha merch I need that has nothing to do with the BD releases....

So I never bought the Madoka movies, either, and I'm late on the first two. I was kinda waiting to see if they'd get dubbed, I guess. Yeah, don't give me that look. Which I believe Aniplex of America says they'll do now. Rebellion came out last month. I know spoilers, but I have to watch it. But since that Rebellion movie is new and LE, why not. I have to watch it sometime because I couldn't go to the movie theater viewings so far away. Besides, this Akemi Homura figure exists for the Rebellion movie and I think I need it in my life to complete it. Why do you look so cool, Homura! Don't look at the price tag. Resist it.

Do you see this? I'm talking about a few magical girl shows and I have my hands full here.
So, what am I watching for the spring anime season and where am I at?

Black Bullet (4/13)
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desuka? (3/12)
Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san (3/12)
Love Live! School Idol Project 2nd Season (4/12)
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (4/26)
Mushishi Zoku Shou (4/12)
No Game No Life (4/12)
Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin (3/11)
Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii (4/?)

I'm a little behind at the point of posting this in watching. Oh, well.
