Picked up a Ford Expedition

Published by:

Yeah so I picked up one of these. Was a good deal so couldn’t pass it up. Unfortunately I cracked a torsion bar somehow and just waiting for a new part to get here. Already replacing suspension parts and whatnot because I don’t want it to ride like some fancy ass rich guy car. I want it to ride like an SUV is meant to ride.

There is some rust under it because it’s a 2000 and not religiously taken care of but I plan to rehab all that. Already started replacing some things and I want to sandblast it and do a full undercoat painting.  Pretty much planned to make it run like new and ride ’til the wheels fall off. Someone actually said something about getting a car for $10,000 and not having to do all that. Why would I do all that when for $2500 this thing will be on the road and driving like it’s brand new. I guess some people are rich and throw money around.

So yeah, adding another title to my list of growing jobs. General contractor, game developer, graphic novel writer, manga writer, mechanic and body repair. That’s probably leaving out a few things like appliance and TV repair which I have done recently. Fixed the oven for $15 and TV for $20. Better than paying $500 and $1000.

The pic is actually of another one but mine is just like it except different bumpers. I should actually take pics…

The Rolling Girls (Rōringu Gāruzu)

Published by:

When I first heard about the show it was just blurbs and loglines and whoever did that marketing did a good job. They had me wanting to watch. After watching it…well read the rest of this post.

The premise of the story is that there was a “Great Tokyo War” which rocked Japan 10 years ago. All the political and economic power has vanished. Since this happened, each of the 10 prefectures split into independent “states” that compete with each other. Vigilantes from the war became known as “Best” and they represent their prefectures, then they have supporters that are called “Rest”, kind of like a mob. The Rest are supporters who help maintain peace.

After one of the Best battles, Masami is left badly injured. One of the Rest named Nozomi decides to travel Japan on motorcycle with her friends to fulfill requests Continue reading

Seraph of the End (Owari no Serafu)

Published by:

Seraph of the End is a show from the past spring season which actually brought us some very good shows. This was indeed one of them even though it took a while to build up to the action. Seraph really does start off slow. At first it looked like it was going to be sparkling vampires and BL all over the place. It does take a few episodes to see where they’re going in terms of direction of the show and that’s probably because they knew they had a second season coming.

The actual story is about a ravaged Earth that was destroyed in 2012 by a human made virus that killed anyone over the age of 13. This leads to the uprising of the vampires. They come from the depths of the Earth to take control of most of the planet and offer “protection” to survivors. That “protection” comes at a price, they have to give their blood to the vampires who need it to survive. Yuichiro and Mikaela plan to escape to the outside world but in their attempt, Mikaela is caught and sacrifices himself so Yuichiro can escape. Yuichiro has since vowed revenge on the vampires for killing his “family” and now has backup to help accomplish that goal. Continue reading

Yuru Yuri

Published by:

What can I say to describe Yuru Yuri. Cute girls doing cute things with lots of yuri undertones? Sounds about right. It’s probably a little Lucky Star mixed with Sakura Trick.

Yuru Yuri is about a group of middle school girls who have deep childhood bonds and they form an after school club. The club is just them having fun but this is where you start to see the yuri undertones. The 4 girls have friends in the student council and a few others who they interact with. Within the group there are some girls who like other girls but don’t know how to say it, some who know how to say it but get pushed away, and even some who fantasize about the other girls. But don’t expect this to go into hentai areas or anything like that. The show is very tame and it sticks mostly to the school activities, eating together, Comiket and things of that nature. When it comes to yuri action, it’s very innocent and nothing heavy. Not even sure I’d call it yuri. Continue reading
