2018 better bring Okitegami SP sir!

2018 can’t be as poop as 2017 was..right? Only 360+ days ahead to confirm it! :p

Happy Holidays and Happy (early) New Year everyone, let us all be healthy and…well, our well-being is the most important thing, so that pretty much embodies everything else. To those dear readers, that somehow still read our humble blog, I got a couple of announcements to make :

As you have noticed, things have been constipated-turtle-slow as of late. (well, “of late” being quite relative..)

Like I’ve said before,  the three of us simply don’t have the time to blog the way we used to; apart from the lack of time though, things have been hectic the past months.

Personally speaking, I had to deal with some health and work issues that aren’t still resolved quite yet, but I don’t want to get into many details; things are looking a bit better now and that is what counts. I did want to clarify, though, because I haven’t completely turned into the lazy-undedicated shit I usually turn in the summer time lol. (my winter ratio of posts is always higher in general, but this year I did have a legit reason to abstain)

Kwon is quite the honorary post-graduate student, and doesn’t even have time to pee; same thing going on with my sister, as her theatrical studies include weekends too. Where are the glory days where all three of us were trolling by the balcony, contemplating the existence of the triple rainbow..Ah, those are lonely times, dare I say.

Man, I’ve got to admit 2016 was cool, 2017 was purely shit so…2018 can’t be /that/ bad, can it? If for any of you, 2017 was good, I hope it continues to be the same; if you’re like me though, I pray we experience a complete change from the shitfest that was this past year.

Wait, I just realized that my announcement didn’t reach a conclusive point. Right, so yeah-

All three of us (note how I like to use “all three” quite often? it’s a musketeers reference! :p) decided not to abandon the site, as we have spent TONS of time blogging & effort/money to maintain it, but Kwon and my sis have a bit less (aka non existent) spare time than I do, so I will try not to let it wither away like a poor flower till we all sync-post sometime in the future. I can’t make any promises (life quite unexpected, the first rule) but :

1. I will try to blog for a couple upcoming j-drama series I’ve got my eyes on (probably Ishihara’s new series and Video Girl Ai, which I really wanna see how they’re gonna handle it lol) but I won’t do full recaps as I used to; apart from the lack of time and energetic mood, we have almost reached our quota of space (thank you Kwon for uploading 4389843948398493 pics in each of your old recaps!) and we can’t pay for more of that, on  top of other expenses the site requires, so for right now, that’s not an option.

2. I will also try to translate segments of japanese magazines I will get (hopefully soon) my hands to, (like I did with Tori and Suda a while ago) in the upcoming months, as training for my JLPT test too, which I missed…it’s a tl;dr story, and NOT A HAPPY ONE. ;_; ( of course the test was scheduled on a Monday, the day I absolutely hate; fucking Mondays man)

3. There might be some random entries too, idk. I think Kwon wanted to talk about an anime he watched recently, too? So yeah, there might be some “OOC” entries as well from time to time.

What else? That’s pretty much it, I suppose.

OH I STILL BELIEVE FOR THE OKITEGAMI SP, yeah- that’s my second wish for 2018: Health, and Okitegami SP, make it happen NTV, I don’t care how! (look at them cuties in the display pic, like, WHEN WILL YOUR FAVES)

Alright, like a brave soul (or was it two? :p) said once, REBELLIONS ARE BUILT ON HOPE, and so are “new years”. And so is life, if we are to extend our philosophical scope, hm.

Let’s hope for the best everyone and let us all be kind to each other- just like my man Kyosuke is in the above pic, where he offers his pen to Okitegami; the beginning of their romance, that one gesture was! <3 (forever my n1. otp yeah)

Thanks to all of you that keep reading our blog, it is re-assuring to see that while many of you have left, a few of you are still around.

2018 better be fucking good sir (cause 2019 WILL be good, what with GoT and new Star Wars, right? RIGHT)

Adios for now pals! 🙂

Here, another cutie pic BECAUSE I CAN

I'm pretty outgoing from what I've been told; unless, you bad-mouth Ayase. Or Gakky. Or Ueto. Or Tori. Or Masaki. Or Kame. Hmmm, the or-thing is actually endless! You get the gist of it, right? ; p

    Happy New Year dramajjangers!
    It was a nice surprise to see you have uploaded a new post, I thought you have abandonned the site because of the many obligations you have.
    Good luck with your work and health, good luck to Kwon with his diploma and to your sister too.

    p.s. Have you watched the new Star Wars? I remember you told me that Rey and Kylo Ren would become a thing in the new trilogy and I didn’t believe you back then but you seem to be right afterall hah. Get on twitter when you have time. : D

      Yeah, it is certainly a lot tighter time-wise than it used to be; I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t miss the days where we had all the spare time in the world and we filled it with constant series-watching and recapping but..alas, life kicks in, don’t it? We’re gonna try our best to post as regularly as we can.
      Thank you for the wishes, good luck to whatever you need good luck with too! 🙂

      p.s of course I did…twice! Haha, yeah, there was tons of subtle romantic stuff going on between them, I actually went “ehhhh” with all the scenes, didn’t quite expect it. I troll-entertained the idea when I told you that, but it does seem to be heading the canon-route huh. We’ll see, the ending was a bit 50/50, so yeah, we will see.

        Yes you’re right, it kicks in!

        I think that they will go with reylo afterall, the subtle romantic stuff as you said were too much. I assume Ben will be redeemed in the end, Disney has already ordered another trilogy from what I read.

          Ah, yes they have. Would it be too much of a reach to say that this trilogy might include Kylo/Ren’s baby? Who knows? They will definitely milk this cash cow though. Hopefully they don’t overdo it though. I was (very much) pleasantly surprised with their first anthology film, Rogue One; but one must hope they don’t overdo it and start releasing a movie every year…now I think about it, though, I would still watch everything haha.

    Happy 2018! 2017 was not good for me neither so I pray we go the same change.
    “rebellion is built on hope” that was one of my favorite lines from Rogue One, really good movie. I also enjoyed The last jedi, did you watch it?

    • December 28, 2017 at 7:53 pm — Reply

      I hope we do my friend!
      Oh Rogue One, I freaking love it, it’s up there with Empire Strikes Back in my favorite-SW-films. It was absolutely amazing!

      Yes, I did watch it and I found that I enjoyed it a bit more the second time I saw it; there were some points that didn’t make much sense but overall I thought it was very good. It certainly took liberties, but I thought it paid off in the end.
