My replacement copy of Baldur's Gate has arrived.  I may never leave my computer again.

One Piece is adorkable.  Castle is the second-greatest Nathan Fillion show of all time.  And I remain confused about how I can be so excited about individual games in HnG when I don't understand the slightest thing about Go.  I mean, I just re-watched the Road to the Hokuto Cup special, and I, like, vibrate when Hikaru plays Yashiro.

I was pondering Hikago, actually, and remembered that someone mentioned that the writer said Isumi was furthest (of the main group of pros, I'm assuming) from reaching the Hand of God.  I can only conclude that, given the heavy emphasis on rivalry in the show, what's holding him back is that he doesn't have that kind of relationship with anyone.  I mean, there's Akira and Hikaru, Touya Kouyo and Sai, Waya and Ochi, and--to an extent--Kuwabara and Ogata.  And then there's Isumi, who battles it out with...Le Ping.  For five seconds.

Have found supernatural historical romance thingy that is providing me with endless amusement.  The heroine totally kills a vampire with her parasol.  In a library.  At a party.  So freaking fun.

ooh, that was me! who said that about Isumi! and you know, i'd say you're right, but I think that Waya and Isumi have each other, in a certain sense, although they don't play each other at all in the series. I don't really know that Ochi has anyone. Hmm. Maybe Yoshitaka. for 5 seconds, lol.

read the manga

And you are reading Soulless! So am I :D

Aagh, this is why I need to get further in the manga than chapter twenty. I can't really protest that I see Ochi and Waya as having way more of a rivalry than Waya and Isumi if I've never actually read the original material.

I picked up Soulless in the bookstore, read the back flap, and immediately declared my undying love for the story. Okay, there are a couple things I'd tweak, but seriously, so far the book boils down to 'soulless heroine parasol-ing baddies and craving sweets'. There is no bad.

YES! I'm just the same :) Someone asked how you could possibly be excited about an anime about a board game, but actually it's not hard, not even when you don't understand the first thing about the game. They're really selling it well in the series. Although the over-dramatic music sometimes makes me laugh. :)

The over-dramatic music and the SPEED LINES. I cracked the hell up the first time I saw 'em. Placing stones on a board is hardcore.
