Today's Manga: Not a sausage. I saw some good stuff, like the XXX-Holic novel and Mao-chan, but decided to skip both in favor of some other large purchases.

Today's Anime: The first set of School Rumble season 2, the seventh disc of Death Note, This Ugly Yet Beautiful World (you only get so many chances, Gainax... make this one count!), and with 25% off plus $10 in Borders Bucks, a well-hidden copy of Kamichu. That's got to be a rarity now... I didn't even notice the Geneon logo until I got it home.

I also picked up My Japanese Coach for the DS. Granted, even breezing through the proficiency test only let me skip 10 lessons, so I've got a long way to go to get to what I really want to review using this program, but with patience, I'll unlock the important things like kanji and lots of vocab words eventually. The games aren't too bad, considering that they're all learning aids. It just takes a lot of "mastery points" to master simple words that I already know, and it requires complete mastery of all ten vocab words in each lesson to unlock the next lesson. Okay, so let's call it good review. Probably one of the easiest ways to keep up with my language skills and recover the skills I used to have but forgot.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
