Wow! It's been 5 months since I updated this LJ since I posted on my birthday. I have lots to post here just to catch up and to let you guys know what I've been doing.
I finally found another employment and while I'm not really satisfied, it pays the bills. I'm still looking for work elsewhere in the meantime. Fandom-wise, I watched the first seven episodes of Saint Seiya Omega and I stopped completely. It pains me to do this because I'm a Saint Seiya fan for life. The problem with SSO is that it fails to stand out as unique as the 1986 original anime did. SSO feels as if I've already seen it before so I find it pointless to continue watching. Besides the things that show up in SSO frequently show up in many modern anime and manga and even in video games. I've learned that the original Bronze Saints have shown up in some episodes but they fail to get my attention. I mean they just show up, spout stuff and that's it. And some of the Gold Saints aren't that worthy (aside from Sagittarius Seiya and Aries Kiki -yep that's official-) so I paid even less attention. IF SSO was Persona-like, then I would've been very interested in watching it. Too bad this boring anime is stated for 52 episodes so it's still halfway through. Go figure! >.>
Speaking of Persona, I'm heavily invested in this fandom. In fact, I created a fansite dedicated to it called Studio Necronomicon
to give the illusion of a doujin circle as Studio Necromancer even though I'm the only one who runs it :P The website is dedicated to the second Persona game but also deals with the third and fourth games as well (with over 100 pages and counting). It's mostly fan work but it also has gameplay tips on how to play Persona 2. I also created a tumblr blog
that accompanies it. A little warning though: it's NSWF most of the time.
Heh that's what I've been doing up til now. I'm still waiting for Persona 2 Eternal Punishment PSP to come to the US. Meanwhile two new Persona 4 games are out there: Arena and Golden. And I don't have a PS3 or a PS Vita to play them. Oh man....
