Summer is always a lot better without all that AP work to finish. I didn't go to my own grad night because we switched from Disneyland to Six Flags and I'm not a big rollercoaster person (also the price they were asking was about $20 more than a regular ticket to Six Flags, because they didn't change the price from when it was a trip to Disneyland and I thought that was a big ripoff.)

I got a job as a writing tutor and another as an assistant in the history department. It might be a lot for me to handle next semester though so I'll see how it goes. I'm just glad I got these because last summer all I did was apply fruitlessly to many, many jobs.

I was in Japan for about a month as part of a school trip. We stayed mostly in Kyoto then Tokyo, but on separate days we also visited Osaka, Nara, and Hiroshima. Most of the trip was visiting shrines and working at a university there and at some elementary schools which was really fun. My favorite parts of the trip were probably our visit to Nara (I loved the Nara deer! And I got some cute deer-related souvenirs) and some of the free days in Tokyo where we visited places like Akihabara, Shibuya, and Harajuku. I also got to see the giant Gundam model in Odaiba which was one of my goals before I left. Though honestly the entire trip was amazing aside from a brief cold I came down with, and Japan is a beautiful country. It's so clean and you can find vending machines everywhere. Plus the transportation is amazing, we got to ride the Shinkansen (bullet train) to Hiroshima and Tokyo and it was so great. This was also my first time out of the country and on a flight (I've only ever been to Mexico briefly) and it was a really great experience. I bought way too many anime figures though because they're so much cheaper there, ha.

Gundam is something I would say not everyone would enjoy because it's very real robot and less 'out-there' or experimental compared to stuff like Evangelion and Gurren Lagann. I've only seen Gundam 79 and Zeta Gundam in full, but I liked both a lot. I can see the animation and art style turning some people off though, they're very late 70s/80s. I've never seen Gundam Wing but it seems to be kind of love it or hate it, a lot of the fans of it were people who were introduced to Gundam through it so they tend to have nostalgia for it. I'm waiting on Evangelion 3.0's dub too....sigh. I could always just watch it subbed I guess, but I've watched all the other Eva-related stuff in English so I don't want to switch over just for this. Attack on Titan...haha. My rating is a little harsh but I downgraded it because I thought it was kind of like Elfen Lied in a way, only somewhat better. The hype really killed that series for me, though.

Congratulations on your graduation! I remember mine pretty fondly, haha. Do you have any plans for the summer? How was grad night?

I really loved Utena, it's one of the most original anime I've watched. Though I loved it, I also had some issues with the pacing and fillers (though most of them were at least funny and a few contained some plot-relevant stuff) which is why I didn't give it the full 5 stars. Other than that though I thought it was great, definitely a favorite. I've been thinking about watching Texhnolyze but I hadn't given Hajime no Ippo a thought because of its length and the fact that I am not a boxing fan. I might look into though since I've seen almost uniformly positive reviews of it, and hey, it might surprise me!

I ended my spring semester back in April and spent most of May on an abroad term in Japan. I did pretty well during my spring semester, and I got two jobs for when I return to school in September which I was really fortunate to land. And my trip to Japan was amazing, and it's gotten me really interested in Japanese history (not that I wasn't already, but my focus tended to be American and European history.) Overall I've been good though but I've been lazy about finishing series - I've been working on Zeta Gundam since last spring and still need to finish it....

Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. The only thing I had watched of the Lupin III franchise before was the Castle of Cagliostro, which is also great, though it's tone is the POLAR OPPOSITE of the Woman Called Fujiko Mine (being directed by Miyazaki and all.) Still very much worth a watch, I think. I haven't really kept up with many newer anime honestly, I prefer to watch stuff after it's been completed and I have way too many older "classics" I'm trying to finish to even attempt something newer. I tried keeping up with the second season of Free, but eventually I stopped and I still need to finish it. I actually have Durarara on my Want to Watch list and it's been perpetually sitting on my Crunchyroll queue since like 2012, but I just haven't gotten around to watching it yet. I imagine I would like it since it does share the same author as Baccano and apparently many of the same stylistic themes/concepts/etc., but one of the things that drew me to Baccano was its setting (I love historical settings obviously, being a history major and all) and plot, which is kind of similar to Pulp Fiction, but Durarara doesn't have these so I wasn't nearly as intrigued by it as by Baccano; though I'm definitely going to give a try someday, and it seems like something I would enjoy.

Wow, now I need to see this series just for the ending, especially if it's as out-of-context as Evangelion's (which is a pretty impressive feat.) I personally loved the Woman Called Fujiko Mine, and I felt like they used the episodic format very well (similarly to Cowboy Bebop.) The art style and music I liked as well - they were unique and it's just nice to see anime that goes for something entirely new and different rather than using the same kind of moe art style that's so common now. I didn't do any candy trading this year but I had enough to sustain me for a few days afterwards, haha. Since Halloween I've just been busy with school, having to think about final papers and projects and whatnot, and I recently had to register for classes next year. I haven't been watching as much anime lately, I keep planning to finish Free or Zeta Gundam, or finally get around to watching the 2nd Cardcaptor Sakura movie or Macross Do You Remember Love, but I always get distracted by something else online (during October I started reading the nosleep subReddit and I'm on there practically all the time now, or watching Let's Plays on Youtube.)

I love Games of Thrones, it's an excellent show, and if you liked Berserk I think it may be up your alley. I've been wanting to watch Berserk too, just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've been trying to get through some more Gundam series actually. Higurashi I felt was overrated - the animation is awful and it never scared me or was really that mindscrewy, though it had some high points. It was more violent than anything, which doesn't really scare me, especially in animation.

Wow, 5 APs? The most I took was 3, I knew I could never handle the workload of more (I'm incredibly lazy and I didn't have the strength to make it through an AP science or math class, since I'm awful at those subjects.) The first half of senior year is always annoyingly busy, but after that it becomes a lot easier. My second semester I didn't even have a sixth period class. Once you get all of that college stuff out of the way, it's just graduation stuff and AP testing.

My Halloween went pretty well, my friends and I were out for a few hours and we got a pretty good amount of candy. We went to a really busy area with lots of decorations and haunted houses, which was nice because we didn't need to worry about flashlights or getting lost but at the same time we couldn't go to every house because of crowding. Still fun, though.
