eternal eternity

I admit to be one of those people who raised an eyebrow when the name of the song was first released. “eternal eternity”… What does that even mean? Eternal x 2 = eternal. And it’s not even properly put into upper case! Lol.

But like many things since Season 3 of SMC was announced, I said I’d hold my opinion until I actually saw and heard it. I’m happy to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Thoughts on voice, visual and parts of the lyrics below.

11 years of blogging

I was staring at the date today and couldn’t shake the feeling that March 21st meant something to me. After a while, I realized it was the day I signed up for LJ 11 years ago.

Looking back, I’m a bit amazed at myself. There are a few posts where I thought to myself, “Did I really write this?” or “Wow, I certainly had a lot of patience back then to make this ridiculously long post”.

A lot of the posts were, of course, Mizuki Nana-related (especially starting from 2008 – I imported the majority of it onto WP here). Interspersed here and there were Nanoha-related posts (which arguably is also Mizuki Nana-related XD).

2013 was when things started getting busy for me, with 2014 and 2015 being the two years when I was barely active (busy RL played a part, but it largely ended up being a drop in interest) — so yes, I can’t say I’ve been blogging for the past 11 years (as the pauses in between would make it less than that), but nonetheless, there’s about 11 years of memories I’ve left online and it’s kind of amazing looking back on all of it now.

2016 so far has given me a bit more reason and time to be active online due to video games and anime series celebrating anniversaries (such as Pokémon) and others where anniversary celebrations are lasting across years (these would include Digimon and Sailor Moon).

Speaking of Sailor Moon — I got back my SeraMyu -Un Nouveau Voyage- last week (on the 16th)! I’ve watched the interview with the 4 outer senshi at least 7 times now, and I find myself grinning like an idiot each time. They have this interesting group dynamic going on. 😀

Review of the musical will be posted later this week. 😉

Michiru’s Bday & Crystal Season 3 trailer

It’s Kaioh Michiru’s birthday and there was a lot of activity going on under #海王みちる生誕祭 on twitter. A lot of tributes and fan arts to our favourite Sailor Neptune that I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through. It’s all the reasons in visual form why Michiru has become my favourite character in Sailor Moon over the past 2 years (it used to be Haruka, who is still very much high up there even now, and before her, Rei).
