So, not only did I manage to achieve one post per month for 4 straight months, I did not post anything in August! Hahaha!
The culprit/s? A new job and the 2012 London Olympics.
As I announced in July, I got a new job. I’m still enjoying the perks of a newbie at my job–not much work to do. I will probably get busy next month, though I don’t think I’d have to do a lot of OT this time just to get things done. And I’m actually happy about that prospect. 😀
On the other hand, the London Olympics just took my mind off anime for a whole month. When it’s something that comes only every 4 years it’s kind of hard to ignore. I didn’t watch like crazy but on weekends I’d be in front of the TV for hours. It’s only now I’ve started reading anime blogs again. I’ve watched some anime in between but not that much.
And regarding JLPT, I think I’ll pass up this year. I just don’t have the discipline right now to be studying at the level that I had years ago. I know I shouldn’t worry that much about my declining Nihongo skills, but every time I hear Nihongo being spoken that curiosity, that yearning to understand would pop up again. I wonder when I can shake off this lethargy that has gone over me the past 2 years.
On the anime front, I have a lot of catching up to do. I still haven’t finished
Aquarion EVOL, Fate/Zero, Mine Fujiko to xxx, and Tsuritama. Though I’ve now caught up with Natsuyuki Rendezvous and Uchuu Kyodai.
And since the fall anime previews are out, here are the shows I’m planning on checking out:
Shinsekai Yori – It’s sci-fi, ’nuff said.
Jormungand: Perfect Order – Not as good as Black Lagoon but what else is there?
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012) – Trying this out of curiousity.
Suki-tte Ii na yo – Something for the heart.
Psycho-pass – Almost anything in Noitamina I will check out.
Robotics:Notes – Same as above.
Kami-sama Hajimemashita – Comedy. Something to lighten me up.
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun – Same as above.
Until the next
month? post, ja!
