Go Tournament Success!

Posted in Go with tags , , , on March 12, 2010 by kumoriha

The 2nd annual Go club tournament finished tonight. We had lots of fun destroying Tracy’s house and failing at ping-pong afterwards. Also, I managed to deplete myself of money to replace the gift cards with cash prizes. Anyone want to buy 2 $15 McDonald’s gift cards? I don’t eat junk food…

As to why the Senjougahara picture above? I dunno, but she’s awesome.

Also, 100(!!) chapters of Hayate the Combat Butler got uploaded to Onemanga the other day, which I read instead of studied for my physics test today. Which is why I probably got a B…crap. Anyway, things got pretty crazy. Hayate is great. And so is Hinagiku.

Tsundereee~ Yeah, Hinagiku is one of the few female anime characters I actually like. Actually, besides her and Senjougahara…hmm…
Anime females are pretty bland, yeah.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
ふざける(fuzakeru) – to mess around, to joke. You hear ふざけるな!(fuzakeruna!) a lot in Japanese media, which means anywhere from “don’t mess around!” to “don’t fuck with me, you asshole!” depending on context.


More Renai Circulation

Looks like it’s another surge of videos on Nico Nico Douga.
Konata’s version:

Also, 22 Chinese people sing Smiling:

I am envious. And want more people.

Also, the cutest/awesomest part in Bakemonogatari episode 14:


Random Japanese Word of the Day:
失敗(shippai) – failure, mistake, epic phail (kind of, not really). My friend’s favorite word for some reason.

The Astonishment of Suzumiya Haruhi

Well, looks like Tanigawa Nagaru’s finally getting started. Hopefully. A part of the new (finally) Suzumiya Haruhi novel will be released later this year. Rejoice.
It seems like Love Plus has been officially considered “fine art” by the Japanese government. I guess I’ll have to agree, albeit in a strange way…
Bakemonogatari episode 14 is finally out too. Will watch now.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
変人(henjin) – Strange person. 変(hen) means weird or strange, and 人(hito, but in this case jin) means person. So “strange person.”

Weekly Vocaloid Rankings #123

From Nicovideo.
Also, Pedobear is part of the official 2010 Vancouver Olympics mascot. Oh dear.

Senjougahara Hitagi figure looking very good. As good as BRS, in fact. So pretty.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
神様(kami sama) – God. Or a nickname you may call me.

For some reason, 恋愛サーキュレーション(Renai Circulation), the opening for Bakemonogatari’s Nadeko Snake episodes, has gotten massively popular. I guess it’s because the full version finally came onto Nico Nico Douga?
MMD with Nadeko. I’m sure about 279 new lolicons were created from that video. Also, Kanbaru’s pose is hilarious.
Youtube version:

I should make a new banner with Nadeko. Lots of pink, yeah?

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
Well, since I did the “I’s” last time, I guess I’ll do the “you’s” this time. Often though, one usually refers to a person by name directly, rather than you. Anyway, the formal version is あなた(anata), which is also used by wives for their husbands. That’s not important though. 君(kimi) is less formal, and is used for relaxed situations. お前(omae) is really informal, used among friends and such. Anything past that is used almost only in anime and manga.
