Resolutions for 2009


I would start off with a solemn swear to stop using the Gregorian calendar, but too many people would start whining if I switched to the Julian one.

Feh, wimps.

1. Watch and review more hentai.

I keep meaning to watch Wet Summer Days, which is rumored to be good, but is currently out of print and has yet to be found on the torrent circuit. Also in the queue are End of Summer (also supposedly quite good), and Moonlight Lady, which has pretty animation and probably won’t fuck with my mind as badly as Touka Gettan did. I should also probably hit up the infamous corn show.

2. Get a visual novel and play it.

Princess Waltz Princess Waltz Princess Waltz. Or, better yet, Enzai! I’m sure you’ll all be looking forward to seeing that one get reviewed.

3. Get rid of anime DVD’s I’ll never watch/watch again.

Actually, I already managed to off-load my Last Exile DVD’s, along with my only volume of Sailor Moon SuperS. Now all I’m left with that I don’t want are Stellvia and the first season of Kyo Kara Maoh. Too bad I’m too sentimental to sell off either CardCaptor Sakura or the first season of Sailor Moon, both of which have used price-tags of about $200 (this would be a massive profit for the Sailor Moon set, as I bought it at a steep discount). If any of you for any reason desire Stellvia ($68) or the first season of Kyo Kara Maoh ($80), let me know, as they’re both in excellent condition.

4. Make enough references to Mamiko Noto’s ass to make it a legit tag on WordPress.

Already started – but I still have a ways to go, it hasn’t even shown up in my tag cloud yet.

5. Stalk my favorite bloggers more.

Including, but not necessarily limited to, Baka-Raptor, The Animanachronism, and your mom little sister uncle little brother. Hell yes, I am playing favorites – especially with your little brother.

6. Finish series in the backlog.

I’m working on Shikabane Hime: Aka and Idolm@ster Xenoglossia, but still have to finish Natsume Yuujin-chou, Birdy the Mighty Decode, Kurozuka, Junjou Romantica 2, Antique Bakery, Blue Drop, Mahoraba, Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora, Red Garden, Spice and Wolf, Nurse Angel Ririka SOS, Lovely Complex, Weiβ Kreuz (!)… shit, I better stop, I’m starting to feel overwhelmed by all this, this doesn’t even count stuff like Koikaze that I have sitting on my shelf untouched. Maybe I’ll finish off stuff like Weiβ or Kyoshiro first, that stuff is some quality crap.

7. Abuse tags even more than I already do.

I’m tagging this entry with ‘corn’ and ‘tags’ to help me meet this goal.

8. Buy a damn mascot.

I went to the Walgreens down the road to find a stegosaurus. No dice. Same goes for the local science museum. Lame. But somehow, someway, I’m going to find myself a damn stegosaurus this year, and then subject each and ever one of you to insipid photographs of it in such places like the freezers at Star Market or the Kappa Delta toga party. And then I’ll go to Anime Boston with it, hunt down fellow bloggers, and then harass them with it. I shall name is Raskolnikov. Or, maybe, Sterling Marlin. That most of you will need to reference Wikipedia to get that last one amuses me far, far more than it should. And gave me another excuse to abuse tags.

    Corn? Really? You never fail to surprise me…

  2. Omisyth says:

    I don’t see nearly enough tags on this post.

    Oooh nice resolutions.. I have an inkling of what I want to do this year in terms of anime hobbies as well… >__<

    Mamiko Noto…. (sighs) sign me up as a supporter..!

    Ooh you got some pretty decent anime in your backlog to watch. Am waiting for the sequel to Natsume Yuujin-chou.

    Tag abuse… hmmm… good luck on your new year’s resolution!

  4. That calendar comment has me seeing GAR GAR Stegosaurus running with the strapline ‘now 100% more synchronised with the Berbers and the Orthodox Church’.

    It may be the most incongruous thing I’ve imagined all day.

    @ Baka-Raptor – I do hope you clicked on that link. The show also features bourbon bottles used in a similar fashion, but apparently corn is more amusing when used for such a thing than a bottle is.

    @ Omisyth – Actually, I had a few more tags such as ‘stegosaurus’, but WordPress ate them for some reason =/

    @ miz – I wish I’d actually watched all of Natsume in the summertime, since it really fits well with that season. I’m trying to get it finished off in time for the new season, although it looks like I’ll just marathon it to-morrow when it shows up on Cruncyroll.

    @ The Animanachronism – …is it sad that the first thing I thought of when I read your comment was Gundam Wing? I think I might actually have to use that little slogan as my subtitle.
