Just to see an entire world touched.

doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (Doggie)

Middle of the week, I wanted to rant about something. Sometimes I can't help but question others' stupidity, or how a person thinks, especially when it comes to being "a man" or "a woman' (AKA: an adult), or what "love" is.

But then, I thought "no" and stopped myself because it's just stupid. It's also obvious. I can't expect anything better from a particular person.

If I wanted to blog about a problem, I probably want to with the purpose of making others think twice. News articles can do the same.

Like I said before, I don't like giving off a bad impression too much, and I also said that it won't make me feel better. Social media can lead others through a lie, show only one side of a story, and personally those who complain the most are the others who cause the most problems. Least that's my opinion.

Right now, I need to learn how to not be frustrated.

What I do want to know is what's next for me? Thinking about it, I must be afraid of returning to school because of a few memories. I was into art (ie: Drawing, pottery) and automobiles, and I even, I can't even recall what it was. Something for PCs. It was highly assumed by family members that I was great with PCs just because I use it often. If I don't remember, it goes to show how much I didn't care. I prefer to use the PC for hobby or research.

No, I don't want to talk about Mr. Nemoy. Not in the mood. Made me a little upset.


Never played phone games outside of Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja because I am just attached to console gaming, but I guess frustration got the better of me and I wanted to test the flexibility of the phone. Went do far to download Chess, Checkers and Sudoku.

"I need something to do while I take a breather" I just thought. I was especially looking for a RPG. So I foound Brave Frontier (header photo) and "Chain Chronicle (SEGA; 2nd photo). I am also playing "build games" such as Samurai Siege and Clash of Clans, but I just might remove them. I also briefly played Zenonia 4. While Zeno4 looked very interesting, I can't use the touch d-pad. Absolutely not. Not comfortable with it at all or any games that use it.

Being used to the conventional RPG with level grinding, Brave Frontier is pretty annoying because it uses a "fuse system" to make the characters stronger. They don't level up in battle. In the first photo are three five-star (or very rare) characters and it's still difficult. I even have 4-star Earth Pike Lance and I have to evolve him with a couple more materials.

Voice actor Ishida Akira (石田彰) voices over 40 characters in Chain Chronicle. Plenty of pretty guys or kids, but there is also burly dudes like Greg (above) and old men/veterans like Cervantes (Who says "Wakazo gaaaaa!" or "Greenhorn!"). SASUGA ISHIDA!

Not sure of the thought on the hero's name (you pick your own). I guess it's close to Aghanim, Athrun and Arslan.

Lots of Uchida Maaya too; apparently Yanagita Junichi (柳田淳一) plays a lot of loud or fired up characters, so far my fav being Dusty. Maybe I'll do another screenshot with Ishida characters one day.

Tokkyuger and fanfic project next.

My mother is currently out of town to attend a funeral.

There's talk about suing Joan Rivers' doctor.

I'll just leave this:

In this case, my Hyouga crying icon is very suitable.

As for me, slight ear pain. Had some snow. Really, there isn't much to say. Not much I can do with the baby involved, and it's annoying on and off. Keep losing my inspiration when I tell myself that "I'm stuck".

TV wise, I picked up TERRAFORMARS.

doggiedynasty: (The Ban Stare)
I can't count how many times I've been sick this year, and I need to practice anti-earache remedies. Last week was a cold, this week is an another earache. If I'm going to have earaches after every hair appointment, I need to do something.

Also, tons of rain.

And niece overlord really loves french fries, and thinks I must come home with fries. "You have frai-es?" Yes, she's still stuck with me.

Glad I'm playing SKYWARD SWORD. Big entry on that some day on what I think of it so far. I don't regret picking it up.

I finished Yukikaze (book), so now I need GOOD LUCK Yukikaze.
But I feel like I need to read the first half again to make sure I full fathomed since there is a theme about inhuman/machine-like and human. It's more clearer in later chapters. If there's one thing I know: That Yukikaze is really broken. I think I understood maybe 70% of the plane's statistics?

I think, in particular, that "Faery Winter" chapter was pretty good.

And question of the month: WHAT DO YOU NEED A UZI FOR?!

On the bright and sunny side:

Loved my NES!

I don't even want to get a comedic segment or a live acting role. I'm so mad.

doggiedynasty: (Sad)
I would definitely put this in a top saddest song/greatest love song list. This seems a little too much for a pet song. This would fit better for my mom, but I like it anyway. Tammy Wynette's version is less sad.

[ More Morgie ]
She would've been 16 this year. TO carry something for so long, there should be a story to tell.

But do I have much of a story?

To have a pet )

I think I mentioned already that my niece is keeping me occupied, and likes to use my PC to watch videos. The best time to blog is when she's sleeping. Recently, there has been some carpenter work and tons of cleaning for the arrival of company.

With that said, I probably shouldn't tell a long story.
doggiedynasty: (Super Cry)
SO, after getting the previous entry out of the way...

I'm locked in a land of repetitive "family life" and lack of funds.

I wanted to get a handheld for my hobbies regardless of bossy niece, but I'll just lose my head if I can't relax. Or just enjoying something that I like to do like read, watch TV, or play games. Some leisure.

I gave my Gamecube away. I thought it was going to sell at a bazaar, but was told that it's serving its purpose with another family member. No matter how outdated it is, it still does what it does best: Helping people have fun. I gave away my games too, including Smash Bros Melee, so fun is definite.

It was a hard choice. I just told myself that my systems were collecting dust and that I don't have time to play. I have to look ahead for the newer generation because I felt like I was stuck being behind. I also played enough. I couldn't finish my Heart and Poe quests in Twilight Princess; don't think I was interested in gaining 100% in Metroid Prime 2 either; I didn't complete my event battles and trophy gaining in Smash Bros and I don't think that I could.

I, however, kept Twilight Princess in hopes of selling it. Sending away Mario Party was not easy; I don't think I'll miss Double Dash that much, especially when there's Kart Wii, and the Mario Kart series just gets better and better as it ages (just like Smash Bros series). Double Dash's drifting was ridiculous.

After 15 years, she's gone. She was responsive to me, even when sick. It happened quickly so I was glad. I started worrying when she was stumbling. I just told myself that, because of her age, it was going to happen soon. However, it's always tough to face.

I don't want to explain everything, but I can't consider myself a good dog owner. However, she was a very good dog.

I still need to talk about PSYCHO PASS and Nobunaga.

Here's to Smash Bros! The announcer is the best, and he needs to come back for Smash 4 to shout the title.

Absolutely loved it. Considerable improvement from N64 (no duh?)

The way you interact with people extremely matters.

That's all. I'm really tired.

- Gundam Build Fighters and Seiya Omega has ended.
- Buddy Complex will have a 2nd season. Thoughts some other time.
- John Pinette and Mickey Rooney...(groan)

And I'm not accepting Nozawa Masako being called an old hag. Looking at you ANN. Apparently this is God Acting.

I think this Heidi of the Alps scene with Clara/Kirara, originally, was supposed to be heartrending. But she made it fun? spoiler?

"Boku tate dayo."

And freakin' Furuya Tohru is on Twitter.
doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (Doggie)
I had a lucky three day off, but I course I couldn't completely remain comfortable and alone. So, if I recall: My 2014 Resolutions was to read three or four novels before the end of the year.

Finally finished Pirates Latitude how many years has it been?.

All I can say that Mister Crichton is a meanie. A lovable one, but a meanie.

However, he made me remember: how it felt to go on an adventure.
doggiedynasty: (Super Cry)
1.) Colleagues offer tributes to late VA...

2.) JewWario (1971-2014)

I'm really tired, and I won't say anymore.

"Accept the duel and devote all your strength. It is the duty of all Saints of Athena." AIOLOS - Episode G. The cape, yes!

Its been said that poverty makes people "dumber", or it "drops their IQ" due to pressure. But on the other hand, can that pressure make your work harder too? Give you motivation?

Thanksgiving, I came home on a full stomach, took a nap, woke up, lost my glasses. Wore my old pair until I bought a new pair just recently. Often worry about finances of course. Had to think of my best interests.

In News
December just seems to stink. Last month was the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's death, and we still question what happened. I was pretty moved by the memorial tribute to him.

There is Pearl Harbor, there is Walt Disney (birth and death)!

There is Newtown, Westroads Mall, Midwestern tornados, and...why say more?

Then there's Nelson Mandela (and Paul Walker at the end of Nov). I don't want to say much. Lately, I haven't been blogging much because...well, I didn't feel like it. "Nah, not right now. Maybe later," is more like it. Little to nothing to do with being sad. I guess I was lazy. Frankly, I didn't want to talk about death and shootings, or work, or reality TV and dramas. Maybe I was just occupying my mind with other things.

I'll clear up sooner or later.

Golden Globes on its way.
doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (Doggie)
Remember that video I showed about fans reacting to Kingdom Hearts 3? I was so impressed. In addition, the orchestral music of Shimomura Yoko makes it even more amazing.

The same can be said about the fans of Katsuki Masako (and Sailor Moon), who has been appearing live recently. She deeply affected fans with her personality and singing voice and pretty face? ooh la la.. I wish I could relay my thoughts to Japan.

I'm not sure how long it's been - three or four weeks? Now I understand why the MH series is at the popularity level that it is, and yet Tri's potential is considerably reduced. I almost notice the lack of monsters as I go through the different quests and Moga Woods. Despite that, it does live up to the series's name and it was a good introduction for me.

After a long time, a game that provokes my ambitious spirit. Monsters are exactly what they are: Monsters. And you're going to struggle! And when you fight, you can't suppress the adrenaline.

Some spoilers on what I've been through so far )

Watched Fairy Tail War Windaria (童話めいた戦史ウインダリア) a couple weeks ago

I haven't had a good cry in a while. After watching the movie, I was sick. I needed a friggin' pillow.

The ending theme Utsukushii Hoshi (美しい星; beautiful star) was sung by the one and only Akino Arai. Before watching this movie, the theme didn't effect me so deeply. With her voice, she can easily move me, but the lyrics combined with the movie's events, the song has a different outlook. It's almost unbearable, heartrending, but nevertheless a beautiful song.

I thought, "what's with this song?" (watches movie and sees lyrics) "Oh Geezus...(;___;)"

Isn't it popular?

Kamen Rider W

I picked Kisame because...well, due to NARUTO's international fame. Quite abruptly and to my surprise, Dan Tomoyuki has left this world.

To my disappointment...shortly after his death, and I'm talking like a week or two later, I finally meet his character. And I love a revenge story every now and then (Ryuu Terui is such a jerk). But now..

but now...

It's like my posthumous memory of this man will be a wacko doing clinical examinations to monsters. ^_^; And it's kind of erotic? #LOLWHUT Heh, I'm sure he enjoyed himself though. Can't wait to see W memory. Goodbye, Dan-san.

Gundam Build Fighters
I can't remember if I talked about this show or not, but I just can't believe me (LOL). Everybody complained about it before it aired. For a show about toys and tournaments, isn't it surprisingly ardent? And I feel like a total geek recognizing A LOT of the models. Mr. Ral is right - the person's passion isn't just from fighting with gunpla, but with building. It's all fun."

"NO COLLECTION, BOY! NO COLLECTION!" It became a fun show quickly.

A goodbye from Doggie
The amazing Utsumi Kenji (内海賢二) has left the world. (Source, jpn source)

I almost didn't want to say anything because I was honestly sad. Came off as a shock when I saw it on Twitter. In most cases, when Japan trends, you usually see a name (with suffic "san") and an age of the person who died.

Even when older people die, I don't think that because you're over 70, you should gradually begin to give up and expect a dreadful disease or death. I want to be that kind of person when I'm older.

But Utsumi seemed, least from those who worked with him, a kind of guy who was active. I am reminded of Aono Takeshi; both had quite an impact in the voice industry. Oh yeah, did he like Nana Mizuki? =D On Twitter, there were various condolences; Kanai Miki showed photos of both her and him and his bad ass beard. And I just wanted to cry. I didn't, but really felt like it. Especially when I saw Kamiya Akira's entry about seeing Utsumi in the hospital.

Many people remember him as Raoh from Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star) and that man above...MAJOR ALEX ARMSTRONG from Full Metal Alchemist (both original and Brotherhood). He was also various characters from the Dragonball series such as the hilarious Recoome, the budokai tournament announcer, and Shenlong (quite frankly, a very distinct voice. That dragon is amazing; Funi dub pissed me off badly).

Unfortunately, he didn't reprise the Recoome or annoucncer role in DBZ Kai; he does Recoome and the announcer in the games. Speaking of games, since I am a fan of Samurai Showdown (Samurai spirits) series, he voices the almighty Gaoh. Full name is Kyogoku Hinowa-no-kami Gaoh (兇國日輪守我旺), but that is not mentioned in the English version.

Since I watched that outrageous anime, Shin Mazinger Z (ZEEEEEEEEEEEETO), he was also the voice of Hades. You could say be plays Gods well, or giant men, teachers, goofy people, etc. In Slayers, he is Graif.

I'm not really sure about this but I think his last regular character was from BASILISK: Koga Ninja Scrolls. He voiced the terrible Iga, Mino Nenki to my surprise; Aono Takeshi himself was even the Iga Azusai. You rarely could get such an amazing cast together in one show. I'm a little biased for BASILISK since I enjoyed the comic, and Mino was pretty cruel.

Another cool character, DISSIDIA'S GARLAND!. Well done!

Tokusatsu impressions
Now that I poured out my sadness, let's talk about SUPER SENTAI! So far, I watched an episode or two of older sentai just to get a taste of history. Sometimes I wonder what everyone does

Kakuranger (7 eps):: I wanted to find a sentai that I'd watch along with Kyoryuger so I picked Kakuranger, thus the reason why I'm through it more. First episode was humorous; the descendants of ninja from the Brave Sanada Ten (Seikai, Saizo, Sasuke) opened the gate of demons and have to fight them. I can't believe their vehicle: The sentiment cat bus, Nekomaru. I also can't believe the demons. Along with moral lessons, the series offers us interesting villain characters; hey, demons can have family, friends, and hobbies too. Another interesting point: KANE KOSUGI as JIRAIYA (Kaku Black)! LOL, mostly speaks English with a Japanese cast. Eventually, I will see Yao Kazuki (矢尾 一樹) as Ninjaman!

Zyuranger (4 eps): This is what made Mighty Morphin Power Rangers; a tale of tribal humans and dinosaurs fighting evil magicians from millions of years ago. Hahah, it surprised me that Rita Repulsa/Bandora was slept for so long. It's nice to see the original content. I don't think that in these days, you'll see a small model of a space shuttle riding across the street. It may be CGI'ed. Anyways, I'm entertained so far. SOGA MACHIKO (曽我 町子), WOW! SO CUTE! Bandora could kick a puppy and you'd like it. Soga's brightness wholly exudes through such a character who smiles and laughs while putting the people of Earth through Hell. Such a great smile Soga had.

Carranger (1 eps): Absolute weird, maybe the corniest....the rangers are apparently from a repair shop? But it's not just that. You get a Star Wars-like atmosphere from the start, with the destruction of a planet and people getting attacked like cattle. And...and...PERVERT ALIENS?! Apparently, the bad guys are a biker gang from space apparently. Doppu! Who has seen the tv drama "Dinosaurs"? Doppu looks like the baby from Dinosaurs; from first sight, I thought "Ewok", but the baby from Dinosaurs is a better example on what Doppu looks like.

Hurricanger (1 ep): The Japanese Power Rangers Ninja Storm. Generic so far. Another ninja sentai with the bad guys ninjas led by Yanada Kiyoyuki. On Earth, there are ninja academies, the three starting rangers being sky, earth, and water (like the Steel Saints of Saint Seiya!). Their instructor is badass like most old guys are. Is Oboro a girl or boy? He/she is cute ^^;

I guess I'll have to watch more Carranger and Hurricanger, but for first episode, I think Zyuranger and Kakuranger had a better impression. Both have such hilarious bad guys. Bandora is amazing; Kakuranger's kappa (the first yokai) makes you furrow your face.

Video time, here's some Utsumi Kenji as the announcer. "THERE IS NO MOOOOOOOOON!" R.I.P MAN!

Zyuranger first OP, live! Sato Kenta (佐藤健太). He is also Red Turbo of Turboranger. I think I watched the first episode of that a long time ago but I need to refresh. It was either Turbo or Dekaranger.

doggiedynasty: (This-is-bull!)
Foot pain, homesick.

This entry is mostly going to suck.

In the News
It was only yesterday that two bombs exploded near the internationally famed Boston Marathon, three people killed, one being an eight-year-old boy. My expressions were obvious shock, but it was only recently until I got a clearer view of the carnage. The footage of the explosions itself, the smoke, and the people running away were astonishing in itself. I hear about people being critically injured, had lost limbs. However, it was just today when I looked into the Free Press and saw a photo of blood everywhere on the streets...

Even K-sensei made a comment about it. "AWFUL!"

It's things like this that make me want to be in a federal service. And apparently the explosions were right at the finish line; I can't help but believe that it was right on cue for the perpetrator. Terrorism? Of course, on Twitter, Muslims are stigmatized; the word becomes a Twitter trend because of someone's negative commentary. In a post-911 world, we in America still can't seem to shake off that paranoia of Eastern religion.

I also see these words: "Hateful Democrats" "Republican horse droppings".

Politics are all in the same. I can love military, like rules, dislike guns, etc. Making decisions is liberal. When it come to these situations, crime committing and people dying, shouldn't party affiliation affect common sense? The name-calling is sad.

Japan: Seiyuu World feelings
Legendary Naya Goro passed away last month. I guess I didn't want to talk about it because it was too much that man BEAT CANCER!. So did Tsushima Takeshi from an unfortunate fall. The father of Romi Paku had died as well...I swear, her tweets and blogs can give me so many feelings. Then recently, the author of Zero no Tsukaima Yamaguchi Noboru passed away from cancer.

I felt a sense of strength from particularly Romi's father and Yamaguchi. If I recall, I think Romi said that her father was paralyzed for many years. I thought of my dad too.

Yamaguchi...oh Yamaguchi. He was sick, in and out of the hospital, and was still enthusiastic about his work. That's all I can say. I was just sad. I wasn't really a fan of the novel, the little that I read from it, but I love enthusiasm.

NARUTO: Personally...
Quick thoughts on chapter 627. This is either...

While I am into logic, and staying in character, I'm going to disregard how considerably QUICK this decision-making happened because of the good potential that can come from it. Sasuke's decision is either a sign that he wants to fix the past of his stupid ancestors, or Kishimoto is just plain tired (lol).

But Madara and Tobi are just flat out problematic. So much blood spilled over...being unable to cope. Apparently, struggle or trauma is necessary for the sharingan to develop, but why? What about the byakugan? What about the hard work of Naruto and Rock Lee?

Madara had problems with being trusted. While that is understandable, he wasn't the kind of guy who could improve trust by adjusting his actions. The fear of the Uchiha was still alive, that's true; if Madara wanted peace, couldn't he set an example for Konoha? Why did you prove Tobirama right dude? Torirama's actions were radical as well, and he did act out of his underlying mistrust. That increased suspicion within the Uchiha.

Maybe it is quite difficult: to prove yourself.

Look at Sasuke in the beginning, like during and before the chuunin exams. Even now, aside from Naruto, who will trust Sasuke?

And it's like I said before in another entry, why in the hell is it okay to live in a permanent illusion?

Time for something happy.

MIO MAO and Family
Whelp...the niece made me watch a 24/7 baby program on TV, and there is a claymation short called MIO MAO (revived version), produced by Francesco Misseri, about two small cats. I can't believe how catchy the theme song is.

"Mio, Mao, Mio la la la la." Niece sings it too, if I sing it (lol). She does the "lalala" part.

doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (Doggie)
I felt a little crappy this week because my energy is being wasted on not being useful. Like I said before, I failed the job evaluation. While I did well, I had a weak point in being physical.


FFs on blogs
I wonder, for those who post their fanfiction and original stories on their LJ/DW blogs, do you receive a lot of attention? Not a suggestion, just wondering. And I'd like to read from the experience of others. For those who do it, do you aspire to become a professional writer?

Another seiyuu goodbye
In the voice acting world of Japan, another is lost to cancer: Honda Cheiko (本多 知恵子). A sudden shock I had, and I turn into a piece of sensitive goo reading messages from her fans. Also, the tweets from other voice overs such as Furukawa Toshio, Ogata Megumi, Itoh Kentarou (I think), and Okiayu Ryotaro, and Okano Kousuke.

I came across her profile plenty of times before, but I don't know where and when I first met her. It could've been Flame of Recca (who Okano Kousuke voices the main character in!). Maybe it is Sailor Moon or Yuyu Hakusho? I am quite familiar with her gundam characters; while I don't understand it, the characters Puru and Puru Two has a large following. I am also familiar with Ennil El of Gundam X

Here's a small video! "COME OUT!!! QUBELEY!"

Thank you Miss Honda.
doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (Default)
I should've blogged earlier, then I would've remembered the strange dreams that I had. Since it's mid-October, the days are getting quite cool. I got my sweaters ready; also, plenty of rain and strong winds. Gloomy weather making me drowsy before the evening. I don't like taking too much naps.

Time for a b-day! October 15! Of course! I must express my appreciation.

X-posted at [ profile] katsuki_masako



The 15th of October was K-chan's (Katsuki Masako (勝生 真沙子)) birthday, and over Twitter she received many messages from fans expressing their wide support and love. She replied to virtually everyone who celebrated her birthday, giving her thanks:

お祝いメッセージ、ありがとうございます(*´▽`*)滅茶苦茶嬉しい(≧▽≦)わざわざありがとうございますm(_ _)mこれからも宜しくお願い致します(#^_^#)

"On celebration message, thank you so much! I'm really really happy! Thank you very much! I'm looking forward to hearing from you again.(#^_^#)

She also expresses her feelings on her blog: Birthday!

She is surprised by everyone's MANY celebration messages overflowing with love. The thought of this overflowing gratitude, she reaches to us....with a photo of flowers!

You know, it's been a year since she had Twitter, and she just started her blog last month. I'm still surprised at this, and I am also surprised by her character. Quite a kind person; she also seems curious and likes to try out new things. I still find it humorous that one of her favorite movies is The Exorcist and that she took her sister to the theater to watch it. bad bad

Very silly person. Also, a gamer!

The Bee Gees
I forgot to mention. Or maybe I didn't want to. Bee Gee's Robin Gibb...Thank you for everything.

I can't pick a favorite song, and I can't stop watching these Billboard videos...

Here's one for ABBA. Facing my Water-LOO!
