Skip Beat from Hana to Yume is getting animated. I glanced over the pictures from the announcement and it didn't look particularly original, but I read a summary at Wikipedia and it seemed a lot more interesting. What can I say, revenge is far more interesting than love! [Link here]
Battle Spirits is a CCG, manga and anime. [Link here]

Tomorrow I'm going out to the Walpurgis club night -- anyone else want to come? Ah... but no one ever does. Oh well.
Last Saturday, I spent the evening at starrbeam's party in Yoyogi Park. It was great fun -- there was much alcohol and we spent about one and a half hours chucking a near-invisible frisbee around in the dark. Every time you caught it and threw it, you had to sing a song -- the older and cheesier, the better. Like I said, lots of fun.
Anyway, I borrowed some pics from her:
Picture 1 // Picture 2
I think you know which one is me by now? :P
I'm still thinking of getting a bass and the Epiphone Goth Thunderbird IV is on my wishlist. What do you think?
Epiphone Goth Thunderbird IV Electric Bass?
It's funny because it's true.
Here's a song that I've loved for a while:
"Blue Light Yokohama" by Ishida Ayumi (いしだあゆみ 「ブルー・ライト・ヨコハマ」) (via YouSendIt)
This song, with its modern enka stylings, has always seemed ephemeral to me. The location is clearly set in time -- it's Yokohama in late 1968. The lyrics are fairly standard, so I don't know why it moves me.
"Silly God Disco" by the gazettE (via YouSendIt)
I saw this in the karaoke machine and noted the first line ("It is cheesed with power...") and had to sing it, even though I'd never heard it before. Fabulous lyrics.
