I planned on writing about the Spring Anime Season but most of them come out in April and I can’t find pictures or details about the new anime so… I have nothing prepared for this Sunday, ok? I have excuses, of course, I played a lot of Sims 3: University Life, I read a lot from A Game of Thrones and I re-watched many episodes from Game of Thrones. So this is another Sunday without an Otaku Sunday, but I have a post with food and I promise that tomorrow I will write this Otaku Sunday – I hope it’s the last late Otaku Sunday.
Edit Later: As I promised… the last late Otaku Sunday (hopefully!). And since last week was really busy and because I planned to talk about the Spring Season I don’t have much to talk about today. So I decided to share with you some anime that me and my boyfriend want to watch together. We are pretty different and while I watch almost anything (except stupid comedies and shounen anime), he barely finds an anime to watch.
- Bokurano – because it’s a psychological sci-fi. From what I read looks pretty awesome and even though most of the people recommend the manga… I barely read anything but shoujo so I will stick with the anime. It’s like a game for Earth or something like that… I can only think of Btooom! and how awesome it was so I have high hopes!
- Gantz – yet another psychological sci-fi but this one also has some horror and supernatural stuff. We will see. And this is also like a game for survival, fighting aliens… can you see a pattern here?
- Juuni Kokuki – also known as The Twelve Kingdoms or the anime who broke the pattern. My boyfriend picked this one but give me a red-headed girl with a sword and I will most likely be in love!
- Nichijou – this sounds just like the anime I wouldn’t watch because it’s a comedy (I have a bad sense of humor, trust me) and doesn’t sound too… me. Oh, the things we do for love!
- Abenoshi Mahou Shoutengai – as for the last one… hmm, it’s a comedy but it looks like one that I might enjoy. I am not the best at talking about anime I did not watch because I try not to read too much about them. Just making sure I don’t read spoilers.
What are some anime you watch or plan to watch with other people? I usually do this – watching anime – by my own, but sometimes I have partners like my boyfriend (we watched Baccano and now we are watching Noein) or my best friend (we only watched Nana) or the best anime partner ever, my dearest friend Mih (we watched so so many things together!!).
grilled cheese sandwich | me and Daniela | the Botanical Garden
me, Vlad and Daniela | strawberries
D&D with chess pieces | funny pencil and my character sheet | friends & D&D
Last week I had a lot of fun and tons of social interactions – and that’s pretty weird for me because usually a lot of social interaction doesn’t mean a lot of fun. So I spent an afternoon with some colleagues in the park, I had a friend over for a night -actually, we are virtual friends and pen pals and she needed a place to stay for a night because she had an early plane to catch, and some good hours of D&D with the usual board games gang plus someone new! Lots of new people and lots of things… and I had fun!
We went to the Botanical Garden and the garden is sad in the Winter. My boyfriend gave me strawberries for “Martisor” and I loved that (strawberries were my favourite fruits – now I love raspberries…). And I made a grilled cheese sandwich for the first time ever; it was delicious!
As for the D&D game… we all have our characters now and we met in the game too. But the game is still at another guy’s house so we used chess pieces for figurines and printed some grids. It was fun anyway! Lots of fun!!

pizza day | D&D game | my character sheet for Morgaine Darkbloom
We spent a lot of time with the cats these days because it’s that lovey-dovey time for them so we get to see new male cats. They aren’t friendly but they are funny to watch while they try to conquer Fluff’s heart. Also, Rice Hunter is now super friendly and has a lot of energy – we spent almost an entire day petting him.
Since school hasn’t started yet I spent my days re-watching Chuck and drinking tea. On Friday we were invited to have lunch with Matt and Bianca – she cooked for us some Japanese recipes (tempura and teriyaki chicken) and Matt made me some coffee in a Harry Potter mug! I rarely drink coffee but when we first met I was drinking coffee like crazy.
We had a Pizza day this week – we have one like once a month or so. We spent our weekend working on our D&D characters and we did play a little bit. My character is an elf called Morgaine Darkbloom who is an wizard. I love her!
Friends: important creatures that we all need though we might deny it. I admit that I find it really difficult to write an article about them simply and solely because they are so different, yet so necessary. (But the fact that I know have a laptop – kudos to Santa – and I can write an article on the toilet makes it so much better.)
Since this time of year makes me utterly nostalgic and because I don’t say it too often – though I should – and simply because why not, I am going to express my gratitude and love towards all of my friends through a little article. So let’s start!
Thank you for existing (I have to thank your parents too), for your love and kindness, for all the times when you held my hair so I won’t puke on it, for all the times when you searched for the perfect book just because I am so perky, for forgiving me after every mistake, for teaching me through your own mistakes or simply for teaching me, for supporting me, for the coffees and beers that you drank with me (and for those you paid for me), for accepting me and for understanding my queer personality.
En fin, I thank you all because you are still “here” though I moved miles away (and I did lose some friends because of a futile thing like distance so I am even more grateful). Thank you for reading.
