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.
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.
5. Stalk my favorite bloggers more.
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.
