Of course, Thanksgiving is always held on the last Thursday of November. That means you end up with Intern for this special occasion…Oh geez, I’m really bad with expressing myself during such times. At the moment I’m helping family with setting up for the get together, have the stream of the Dreamhack Starcraft II tourney on a tab, and working on this journal with no direction whatsoever. Hah, since this a special occasion, perhaps this will be the perfect time to share a little something about myself with all you readers.
Note: Thanksgiving coma after eating with the family may affect the journal writing.
To start things off, I have a confession to make: I am a HUGE fan of Type-Moon series. For those of you who who do not know of Type-Moon, they are a company that produces novels and games…well, not the normal type of course. Type-Moon has given birth to many famous creations such as Kara no Kyoukai, Tsukihime, Mahou Tsukai no Yoru, and my absolute favorite series of the company Fate/Stay Night. All these series hold such very interesting concepts beneath all the fantasy and the story. For example, Fate/Stay Night takes historical and mythological figures, smashes them in a world full of mages and witches, and make them fight a battle royal for an omnipotent object that grants any wish to the winner
I’M A SUCKER FOR MYTHOLOGY. In other words, as described by Jacob from Fakku, “Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings on crack cocaine…with sex”. When Fate/Stay Night first come out, it was marketed and sold as an eroge. However, with an unexpected rise in popularity, they have toned down such adult themes so the younger audience could enjoy it.
So why the sudden outburst of my favorite series? Well, the sequel, Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, is soon to be released in Japan! It is just a re-release on the Playstation Vita but it includes added voice overs from the character’s voice actors and actress, new mini-games, and animated videos by yours truly Ufotable. Just take a look at this gorgeous opening. (POSSIBLE SPOILERS BEWARE!!!)
Type-Moon not only creates such intricate series but also variety of loveable characters…One of which is my waifu
HAHA. Don’t let the featured image fool you, as non of the main heroines are her (Although Shiki Ryougi is amazing). Just who is it? Rider from Fate/Stay Night! I could tell you why she is so great….but it would be better for you to find out the way I did: read the visual novel. Watching the old Deen adaptation or the new Ufotable one will not do her justice. Perhaps the new Heaven’s Feel movie will show her in a light she deserves but the movie is not set to come out til a much later date NOT TO MENTION WAITING FOR DVD/BLU-RAYS. And besides, I bet none of you want to hear my horrible “lovey dovey” talk about her…right?
On a last, unrelated note about Fate/Stay Night or my waifu, I would like to take the time thank all you Gigalanders out there! Without your continued support, we wouldn’t continue to deliver such a variety of content nor would we be able to express ourselves in such
a ridiculous fashion. To finish off, I would like everyone to be on the look out for next month. We all have big projects planned for then so please look forward to it!
