My summer is alright, but I still need to do Back To School shopping before the prices go back to normal. Oh yeah! I live in central Mexico now, but I really want to go to Nicaragua (better and more relaxed overall than Hawaii which is said to be full of homelessness). At least I got the kerosene recipe in case I buy a diesel generator.

As for anime, I'm still trying to complete the whole Tenchi OVA universe. When it comes to anime moms, I prefer Achika Masaki (Tenchi's mom in the TV universe ) to Kiyone Masaki. 

I believe that a sixth Tenchi OVA will be made. That would be great because modern anime lacks sci-fi. The lack of sci-fi is why I'm reading Linebarrels of Iron.

Hiking is awesome and I'm glad that you haven't given up on it. That's the tomboyish Akishima that I know. :)

I plan on hiking, bushcrafting or mountain biking across Central America someday. Primitive technology helps in the wilderness too (John Plant's Primitive Technology channel is awesome; better than those copycats and their gimmicky content).

Anyway Megane! How are you doing this summer?

Almamatotogoo Aug 4, 2022

hehe yes, hello fellow totoro fan~

With that said, I hope that you are doing well this early summer. By the way, I've been reading more of Kurogane no Linebarrel and it's still a good manga.

Not something that can easily fit in 26 episodes. So yeah! Kurogane no Linebarrel (manga) has more character development than the Gonzo adaptation. I like how that Kujou girl dealt with bullies.

Yes, everyone knows that Miyuki Sawashiro did the voice of Satoru Yamashita before taking on the role of Celty, Hamon Crowley, Catherine and even that black-haired babe from Fairy Tail. Its interesting that you and her are about the same age, born in the Year of the Ox (Kaori Nazuka is a talented Ox lady too).

Ah yes! Alex Rowe, my Libra friend Mimi's favorite character. Big fan of sci-fi, historical and Chihayafuru.

Yes, I enjoyed the manga quite a lot. Vash got his hair turned black (the result of independent PLANTS using up all their powers) and the insurance girls ended up working as news reporters. Meryl and her Shaq-sized friend Milly were nosy till the very end, but they're still my favorite supporting characters.

Oh yeah! futuristic Earth people did set foot on Planet Gunsmoke for foreign, interplanetary aid. Too bad we'll never see Gunsmoke get completely terraformed or get out of that desert planet phase, what could happen to Mars or Venus.

As for the new Tsukihime, I can't wait to see it being a complete adaptation. Would be great if Hyper Police could have a new adaptation and not Urusei Yatsura. So that some key Evangelion seiyuu will get back together.

After watching Solty Rei so many times, I imagined Carrie Savage being the perfect, modern-day candidate for that cat-demon police girl Natsuki Sasahara. Her Solty Revant voice would totally fit in and both characters are cute.

Speaking of Venus, I really hope that it'll be terraformed into a more beautiful planet than the one shown in Venus Wars which was seen as a wasteland full of anti-Earth rebels.
