Today's million-dollar question: Does it spoil a device to change ports while it's charging halfway?

*          *          *

Ola :)

I got my new phone! Not to broadcast, but I was gonna open with my sister knowing when I realised I haven't even written it in my blog yet.


So yes, I got my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I remember it was a Wednesday, and I woke up at 9 o'clock because the previous day, my dad promised me he would bring me to see various (mostly just Maxis) service providers to see if he could get any sweet deals on the Note 3. He had wanted to set up a company account, you see, but unfortunately it was still expensive so no, I'm still the only member in my family (excluding my aunt) whose phone does not allow free 3G access, to a certain extent.


After ditching Maxis, my dad brought me to Leisure Mall to check the prices. After finding out about several other stuff as well (the Gear watch, for example), my dad took me to some supplies shop to get some dishes and whatnot for an event at the bistro. Took quite a while there. By the time we exited the shop it was already 12 something near 1p.m. We then came back and ate something, though I can't recall what, while watching Jeff Dunham's Controlled Chaos with my dad. He laughed a lot more watching this rather than Michael McIntyre.

One can only wonder why. Haha.

Halfway through, at about 2 o'clock, (Oh, I remember, I ate nasi lemak with my dad), my mom's student's mom called her with news about the Note 3 (Yes, I asked my aunt to ask her. I was desperate. Sue me).

Thankfully, conditions were met and my dad said we could at 3 (though he at first said we could get it from them 3 months from now, to which I for-the-most-part-playfully strangled him).

At 3, we went to Leisure Mall and got the phone >.< Unfortunately, my phone is still naked without a case because the only black one they had decided to go all funky on me. Went to Delifrance after everything everything was settled and came home.

Yes, that's how I got my phone. It was not easy; everyone was planning on next week but I was too eager. Haha. My mom told me I've 'gone to the dark side'.


Anyway, as for what happened today, I woke up at about 10p.m then freshened up before joining my parents and aunt at Pappa Rich for lunch. Had my usual N012 with the soya milk + pudding. We were originally supposed to eat at the OldTown next door but my parents and aunt decided (after ALL orders were written down) that they had a change of heart.

God -.-

After eating, we came back home and I started doing stuff with my phone. I was mostly writing a lot of stuff and finding the best video and mp3 downloader. At one point Lex was pestering me about more Lukas fantasies so I gave her about 5.

She asked for more O.O

So I gave her another five (all of which were at least 100 words long). My creative juices were summoned once again when she wanted more. So I told her I would give her more at 6 o'clock.

What? I needed time to think and eat dinner as well, right? Sheesh. I also had to bathe first, which was what I did. After bathing, I thought about more fantasies while watching Showtime. Yes, I'm addicted, so sue me.

Steamed some dim sum for dinner. No eggs, surprisingly. Decided against it.

When 6:30p.m came, Lex messaged me for the ideas so I gave it to her. About 6 fantasies, each at least 150 words long. My fingers were well-worn by the time I said I was done. Obviously, she loved it (okay, tooting my own horn here) and wanted more (surprise, surprise -.-). I told her I would give her more only tomorrow.

I was tired and charging my batteries so I couldn't afford to use my phone so much. Not to mention I switched my laptop off too because it pulled an all-nighter yesterday charging my phone.

Ooh, I'm also up-to-date with Big Bang Theory's Season 7. The two latest episodes were alright. Not as good as episode 6, but still enjoyable. Especially the Raj and Howard bits.

Okay, I'm pretty much exhausted right now. I have to pull myself together to read Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Richard III again before Wednesday, so...


That's about it, then.

いろいろことあった, ね?

Today's million-dollar question: Does alchemy exist?

*         *          *

Ola :)

My Psychology Paper 2 just ended yesterday so I have a little more time to do this >.<

The previous night I made the mistake of taking a half-hour nap from 5:30p.m to 6p.m after coming back from school. I wasn't feeling well, you see. So, after a nostalgic lunch at Tung Jing and a long, warm bath, I napped on the music room sofa.

Unfortunately, as I had foreseen, after my alarm rang at 6p.m, I continued sleeping. The next time I opened my eyes, it was 8:20p.m. Bleghh~

Can't remember much of what happened next, except that I had a cup of milk and two KitKat chocolate bars before downloading Michael McIntyre's new show, Showtime, courtesy of my sister finding out about it (and having already watched it).

Hmm... What else did I do?

Ah, forget it.

I'll jump straight to after I tried to sleep. That was around 11p.m, close to midnight. However, after tossing and turning for about 20 minutes or so, I decided to get up. That's when I went to the toilet before heading downstairs. The Michael McIntyre show had already finished downloading so I watched that and laughed like a maniac for an hour and 20 minutes.

After that, I watched his Christmas Comedy Roadshow, which was for another 20 minutes, then got around to continuing Rendezvous for another 2, 3 papers. My eyes started closing at around 4:30a.m so I went to sleep on the sofa again, but without the air-fond. Used a jacket as a blanket.

So this morning, I woke up at 8, supposedly. But I was still too tired to function so I went back to sleep in my bed until noon. At 12:30p.m, my dad messaged me regarding lunch to which I replied that I would wait for my mom before joining him.

Went to send the Teana for inspection then collected my aunt (Tch, like she's an object) before having lunch at Ahroy's Thai Cuisine in Taman Segar. I was SO close to getting my dad to go have lunch at Leisure Mall, but I failed :(

Why Leisure Mall?

For the past few days I've been convincing my parents to get me the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I'm not asking for it for no reason, though. My current phone has troubles unlocking and it has other problems as well. I can imagine what my sister would say: "WHY SAMSUNG?!!"

Well, mainly because I want to try something new. Plus, buying the iPhone 5S at such a price for only a fingerprint scanner? Mmm~


So yeah~

After lunch, which was filling indeed, we came back home and I did stuff that I can't recall. Again. Oh right, I was watching various Ellen interviews on YouTube as well as those interviews that consist of Jennifer Lawrence, Johnny Depp and Taylor Swift.

Bite me -.-

After watching one Jennifer Lawrence video I decided to download Silver Linings Playbook, because apparently she acted very well there.


Bathed at around 6p.m, if I'm not mistaken. Just as I had finished, my dad asked me to help him change the bed, pillow and bolster sheets in their bedroom. I did so, and after that, finally convinced him to bring me to the Maxis service provider to check out some data plan stuff before getting the Note 3.


Helped him with some D'Balcony stuff, then had chicken pie for dinner while watching Showtime again. Dad watched a bit too and laughed along. After watching that and eating the chicken pies, as well as drinking 3 cups of milk, I decided to watch some anime!

So, here I am, watching the 6th episode of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood while drafting my post for today.

I have nothing else to say for today, then.

Today's million-dollar question: To write or not to write?

*          *          *

Ola :)

I'm really exhausted right now so this post will most likely be very short. Nothing much happened from before. I mean, I wake up, eat, use my laptop, study and then go to sleep.

I exist O.O

Real interesting, right?


Oh yes, I just recently re-watched Rooftop Prince, since Micky was also in that show. I just love watching him act. The expressions on his face are priceless and I enjoyed the gutsy female lead from the drama too.

Am thinking of finishing off My Princess from before, but not until my exams are over.

I overloaded on Micky, after all >.<


That sounded dirtier than intended -.-

Anyway, today I woke up at 6:53a.m. Why so specific? Because I checked my phone, duh. Of course, I was actually supposed to get up at 5:30a.m to study for Business Studies but I was so sleepy I ended up sleeping through my alarms.


After waking up, I freshened myself in my parents' bathroom, changed and studied until my brother finally got up and decided to leave at 7:50a.m.

I reached college at 8:11++a.m, where I immediately went up to the library to study. Pain joined me not too long after and we were (well, at least I was) rudely interrupted by that person again. Had to excuse myself to drink water because I refused to stay within a mile radius of the both of them.

That person left shortly after and I continued studying, using the library computer to read up on past year questions and the marking scheme.

At around 9:30a.m, Pain said she was hungry so we went down to the canteen where the both of us ate nasi lemak and drank iced Milo. When 10:10a.m came, Prabha came and joined us for breakfast. Continued studying in the canteen, but before we could suggest returning to the library to resume revision, Dellie messaged me stating her intentions to have us accompany her for lunch.

We obliged.

After lunch came and went (I had a roti canai when Prabha came, by the way), we studied all the way to 12:30p.m. That was when we all went upstairs to get everything ready for our exam paper.

T'was alright, I guess. I answered everything. Now it's all up to the examiner O.O

Exam ended at 2:30p.m, but the invigilator watched to 'go over some rules' with us so we were delayed until a good TEN minutes after the paper ended, at 2:40p.m. I went bananas because I was supposed to meet Dellie and go to TS to catch a movie.

She still insisted on watching it despite the 20-minute delay, though. Oh well, I got to see Hiddleston again anyway, so what the heck >.<

At 5p.m the movie ended and I journeyed back to the college to grab my bag and then take the train home. Mom picked me up and dropped me off before leaving to the office.

I, on the other hand, bathed and then watched a few Detective Conan and Big Bang Theory episodes before drafting this post. Will be continuing Rendezvous too because I wanna relax for the rest of the day. You know, since after today, it will be a battle with Psychology to the death -.-

Am thinking of sleeping early too. Tired, remember?

That's about it, then.

Today's million-dollar question: Why do we fear?

*          *          *

Ola :)

I haven't updated these past couple of weeks, yes, yes. I have a reason, remember? I have had exams since the start of October, after all. I swear, I'll be glad when the 20th of November has come and gone -.-

Anyways, as just a brief update on how my life's been, I attended a friend's birthday party on the 20th of October. It was really fun because I haven't been to any of my friend's birthday parties since I was... I don't know... 15 or 16, maybe? That's of course, excluding all the birthday meets in shopping malls – I don't really consider those 'parties'.

The food there was glorious – all hand-cooked by Lex's one and only mother – and although things got a bit awkward at first (since Lex invited her school friends as well and we didn't know the majority of them), but things slowly got smoother as the day settled. Also, the games and Karaoke made everything all the more interesting. Ooh, and the look on Lex's face when I played her my song on the guitar~

Thank God I didn't stumble and make mistakes that would've completely ruined the song.

Alright, so that was the 20th of October. What of more recent days?

Oh yes, my sister just recently came back from Singapore in conjunction with All Souls' Day so we could visit our grandmother's grave together as a family. I made her watch Monster's University, Pacific Rim, as well as the most recent episodes of Big Bang Theory. I wanted my sister to watch Planes too, but I had not downloaded it yet, so...

Which reminds me, I also downloaded Sherlock episodes from Seasons 1 and 2, as well as the first two – and currently only existing – episodes of BBC's Dracula. Looks alright so far, though I'm not so sure of the sex scenes -.-

Big Bang Theory's Season 7's episode 6 is also currently my favourite episode in the season because of Howard's awesome song. He's so cute when it comes to things like making Bernadette happy.

Let's see... What other interesting things happened during these last few days? Oh right, our aunt's maid ran away so she's once again panicking like nobody's business. We try to help as much as possible, of course.

Ooh, and I caught Richard Clayderman's concert on the 4th of November. It wasn't too bad, I guess. I mean, at least the string section was live this time, instead of recorded like the first time I saw himm perform in Genting.

Invited Pow because she seemed to be really interested in catching his show. Asked Dellie first, but she was in Sungai Petani at the time, so she had to miss it.

At the Plenary Hall, I saw Lex and her parents as well as Ah Ming, who was with her friend there.

As for what happened today, I woke up at around 10 something because of my dad. I would've slept for longer if he hadn't butt in. Not to mention, I had to drink the delightfully disgusting cup of lemon extract and a bowl of mixed fruits again. I only thank the heavens my mom didn't include any avocado into the fruit platter today.


After eating, I used my laptop to do stuff. Can't really remember what, but I think it had something to do with the first episode of Dracula. I also just finished watching the third and final episode of Sherlock's second season. It was certainly exhilarating and I hated James Moriarty. I sincerely wish he died.

That aside, after 12 something, I went out to the office because because my dad insisted on my eating lunch with them. So I did, even though I had already eaten before that. My dad is quite a hard person to say 'no' to, actually.

When I had finished lunch, I came back home, collected the clothes and then continued watching Detective Conan's 5th movie as well as the 15th movie, though I believe the latter came first.

After watching the movies, I suddenly felt like watching this one Korean drama called Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I saw it in the Star Newspaper in the office before we went out to lunch and since I saw that Micky (from DBSK) was the male lead, I had to see what it was about.

I was hooked. I mean, it's not really the kind of show I would watch – since it was set in the Joseon era – but I tried it anyway because I love Micky and a lot of things about the show interested me.

So yeah, I began watching. Ate siew mai and other dim sum stuff for dinner, including a cup of milk, before resuming my thingymajing. I'm trying to finish watching this as soon as is possible so that I can spend the next few days girding myself with my battle armour.

Well, I technically mean studying, but never mind.

So yup, you are currently up-to-date where my life is concerned.

Today's million-dollar question: What makes a good birthday present?

*          *          *

Ola :)

Don't you just hate birthdays, sometimes? Especially if that particular someone has the money to buy anything you can give. Not to say I hate birthdays and that I feel it's my obligation to buy a present: I want to buy one, but sometimes you're at a loss at what to give, you know?

That's why I believe in making stuff for the person instead. You know, something that only I can give with my 'talent'. Ugh, when I wrote that, I suddenly thought: "What if I wrote her a song?" Would that be too personal? Feels like it. Plus, if I have to perform it for her in front of everybody, I think I'd die of embarrassment.


So why do I still feel like doing it?


Be right back >.<


Okay, I have officially finished the birthday song. I'll post it up on Lyric Haven >.< Amazing that I finished it so soon, eh?

Anyways, I woke up at 8:55a.m today (or was it 8:59a.m, I can't remember. All I remember is thinking that there's no point in going back to sleep). Though, I only woke up because my mom woke me up. You see, I slept in the music last night because it was really late and I didn't want to wake my aunt up.

So after waking up, I went to freshen up then finished watching my anime. Fastforwarded it so I could finish it as soon as possible. After that, I watched two Kamisama Hajimemashita AMVs before having siew mai for lunch.

Oh, I guess you wouldn't know because I haven't blogged in a while, here's a list of incomplete manga that I'm currently following:

(a) Kamisama Hajimemashita
(b) Horimiya
(c) Hirunaka no Ryousei
(d) Hibi Chouchou
(e) Taiyou no Ie

Yeah, I know. Option (c) is on a roll, by the way.

I actually spent a huge chunk of my spare time reading (a) yesterday. It's so bloody cute. I'd heard of it before but until yesterday, it didn't appeal to me. However, when I started, I couldn't stop reading.

For some reason, I also like Marianas Trench's "Haven't Had Enough" -.-

That was random.

After eating, I studied until it was time for dinner. Scrambled two eggs, made Milo and drank iced water. After, I went back up and drafted my post for today. Unfortunately, I can't remember when I started so I don't know how long it took for me to write the song for Lex.

Yeah, it's for her.

I hope she likes it.

Okay, then. Nothing else from me >.<

Suisei no Gargantia

Picture courtesy of Google Images
Picture courtesy of Google Images
Picture courtesy of Google Images

Finally, an anime review for Suisei no Gargantia!! This is the first mecha anime I've followed till the end. I've tried Gundam before, since I thought it should be tolerable, but I was wrong.

I guess for an uncultured mecha-ite, taking on hardcore mecha is a little too adventurous.

Either way, this anime is fantastic. 

Ledo (actually I prefer "Red" but this is not about my preferences so...) is a young ensign from the Galactic Alliance of Humankind who fights the Hideauze race in space. They kind of have a home up in space. Apparently they decided Earth could not be habited because of the fourth ice age. They explain this further in the anime so if you watch it then you'll understand.

So Ledo and the other fighters, who do so using Machine Calibers, were fighting Hideauze when their failed attempt at intruding on their (the Hideauze) home base causes Ledo to crash land on Earth. When he wakes up, he realises he's been in a state of cryostasis for 6 months while his wounds healed. 

He was found by a community of humans who lived in large ships. The one he landed on was Gargantia, ruled by a Commander by the name of Fairlock and others. 

In his quest to figure out how to get back to the Galactic Alliance, he learns to adapt to the new surroundings and customs, like what they do when it rains or their system of salvaging stuff from the bottom of the sea.

He meets Amy, a 15-year-old messenger, too, though in a rather unconventional way >.<  

This story is technically about the ups-and-downs in Ledo's time on Gargantia while the story progresses. Don't worry, the plot thickens by the episode and I guarantee that when the anime ends, you will be satisfied.

That is, of course, if you like that kind of happy-ever-after.

Guess it depends, then :P

I personally enjoyed this anime right from the start to the end. I believed that this 13-episode anime could have lasted a longer time, but I guess they're making it up with a second season, right?

Yes, by the way, a second season has been confirmed. Now all I gotta do is wait >.<

Here are the voice actors/actresses!!

Ledo *Ishikawa Kaito*
- Taku (Suki-tte Ii Na Yo)
- Manatsu Souda (RDG: Red Data Girl)
- Tsumugu Kihara (Nagi no Asukara)
- Saitou Mao (Super Seishun Brothers)

Amy *Kanemoto Hisako*
- Katsuragi (Sekirei ~ Pure Engagement)
- Nozomi Kujo (Bleach)
- Ogawa Chizuru (Suki-tte Ii Na Yo)
- Kotoura Haruka (Kotoura-san)

Chamber *Sugita Tomokazu*
- Kagami Mikage (Ceres: Celestial Legend)
- Renkotsu (Inuyasha)
- Onizaki Takuma (Hiiro no Kakera)
- Arcana Famiglia (Pace)

Striker *Fujimura Ayumi*
- Zelda (Astarotte no Omocha)
- Kannagi Ayano (Kaze no Stigma)
- Ayuzawa Misaki (Maid Sama)
- Ozawa Haruka (Shinrei Tantei Yakumo)

I know, surprising right? I didn't expect that Ledo and Amy would have also worked together in Suki-tte Ii Na Yo! It's so cute!

That's it, then.

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 12-13

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 12
Suisei no Gargantia
Moment of Decision

So where were we?

Oh right, Pinion the Jackass decided to sign with Kugel's ship and work on board it so he can have access to cool gadgets.

My opinion of him had never been lower.

Obviously Lukkage thought so too, because she commented that she didn't know he was so cheap.

I've never liked her more XD

It was at this moment, with the gleam in her eye, that she tells Pinion she'll be planning some sort of rebellion. Of course, we're all wondering if Pinion will be a part of it.

Red, on the other hand, as he goes through the biggest dilemma he's ever had to in life, sees a chipmunk that resembled Grace, Amy's pet squirrel.

He chases after it, of course, and for a moment I also thought that Amy was onboard. 

After a closer look, I realised the chipmunks had some differences. He, eventually, noticed too.

It suddenly starts raining, and Red remembers all the things the people on Gargantia did when it started raining. 

As he was busy thinking back, though, these people had a custom of their own.

It's too disgusting to type, so you'll have to watch to decipher for yourselves.

It's at this moment in the episode that Pinion decides to say "SCREW IT!" and join Lukkage's rebellion, though. (He didn't actually say those words, but you get what I mean)

Red also starts thinking hard about what he really wants to do. He consults Chamber, which I think is so cute.

Melty, however, had a mission of her own. Under orders, more specifically Red's, she was to notify Gargantia of the impending attack.

While Ridget and the others think that retreat is the best solution for the time being, Amy interrupts them, asking them why is it when Red who wasn't part of Earth in the first place, fighting a war meant for them.

That sure got them thinking.

Red, now also part of Lukkage's rebellion, decides to confront Kugel and Striker, his robot.

Naturally, the fight was super intense.

I was practically shaking in my seat. And frankly speaking, looking at all these photos is making me eager to watch it again.

Aha~ The cliffhanger for Episode 12 was beyond anything like any other. 

I shan't say it here, though, I'll leave it for the next half of this post :)

But for now, this is where it stops.

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 13
Legend of the Verdurous Planet

Okay, so from the pictures, I'm sure you can see that Kugel's actually dead

After finding out, Striker decides to 'let the cat out of the bag' and tell Red that he's been dead for a while now, although the cause of his death was never explained.

Red was pretty pissed because it made him realise that he was being confused over what a robot was saying about duty and shit like that.

Naturally, he felt like destroying Striker more than ever.

With Pinion, Lukkage has finally gotten her Surfing Lobster back on the seas and starts kicking butt.

Pinion also controls the machines and starts blasting stuff away.

The fight with Striker gets more intense as we get deeper and deeper into the episode.

Over here, we can see that by the bottom right picture, Red is getting ready to make a life-changing decision.

And he does.

So what is his 'life-changing' decision? He initiates this neural battle combat technique system that allows him to fight as Chamber

It significantly increases his power and everything, but at the expense of the user's life.

So, technically, Red will die

As they continue fighting, though, Amy comes into the picture.

I don't remember what importance she played in appearing at this point, but she did, so...


Meanwhile, Ridget and the rest on Gargantia are getting ready to use another awesome weapon they kept hidden from everybody.

It made loads of explosions too. The sky was a beautiful tint of red.

Back with Red, his life is about to deteriorate to nothing when he starts thinking about Amy.

Thinking about how much he wanted to see her again and how although he is willing to die to save his friends, a part of him wants to survive and stay in Gargantia like how they used to.

This is when Chamber becomes the main character momentarily.

The angel Chamber actually ejected Red from the cockpit, saying that he was 'relieved from duty' as he was incompetent.


He then single-handedly beat Striker like a drum, though at the cost of his own robot-life. 

Everything was resolved then. Red couldn't believe that Chamber had done all that to save him, but he was thankful nonetheless.

And so, like that, the war with Kugel's army ended and Red was saved.

On a side note, Pinion decided to keep his hairstyle. And Lukkage also joined Gargantia. Well, actually many of Kugel's leftovers went over to live on Gargantia.

Bebel became an archeology lecturer. Lord knows if he has the qualifications, but hey, they gotta start somewhere, right?

And lastly, the moment I've been waiting for since I decided I loved Suisei no Gargantia, Amy and Red's happy-ever-after >.< 

Red became somewhat of an expert salvager and he can even do it without disturbing the Hideauze now. He hopes that one day, they'll be able to communicate with them.

-.- Good luck.

So that's how Suisei no Gargantia ended! Wonderful episode, wasn't it? The battle between Kugel and Gargantia lasted an entire episode! Actually, it would be more than that, considering the previous episode already had part of the battle in it.

Do you know what this means?

This anime has a better war event than Twilight -.-

Special tribute to Chamber
It was such a great thrill following this anime as it ran through all the episodes. I'm also glad that Suisei no Gargantia's the first anime in which I've completed full episodical reviews (although I only started from Episode 3). 

I'm also ecstatic to announce that there has been an OVA release, and that another one will be coming up soon on October 25th. It's my further delight to declare that a second season for this epic anime has been confirmed, although we don't know exactly when the release date is yet.

So psyched!!

That's it, then :)

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 11

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 11
Suisei no Gargantia
Supreme Ruler of Terror

Alright, so this episode starts off Captain Whatshisface making an oh-so-important appearance on Earth.

Naturally, Red is ecstatic at being able to see him. The feeling is most likely mutual.

On the other hand, Pinion still thinks he's got the stuff to beat him, so he tries his luck and shoots something at the Captain.

Obviously, to no avail. He just bounced one right back.

I'm sure you can see from the bottom right picture that the shot took a huge part of their boat off.

After understanding the difference in their power, we meet the people onboard the Captain's ship.


Red officially meets Captain Kugel after that. However, he only met his hologram, apparently because the Earth's air was doing more damage to him.

No idea why.

Pinion meets an old acquaintance too. Again, from the bottom right picture, I don't think I need to tell you who.

Apparently the whole inviting-Pinion-over thing was to get him to agree to being their engineer, since they have a lot of new technology that can be used to develop improved weaponry.

Pinion, the greedy ass, agreed, though learning that he had to sign an agreement and have all the other crew members conform made him think something was up. 

Meanwhile, Red was being 'brainwashed' by Kugel. This is because Kugel believes that the only to maintain supremacy is by establishing authority.

Explains all the zombie-followers -.-

Anyways, Red is in for a real surprise when he realises Kugel's next target is...


That's pretty much what went down in this episode. Really interesting, this was. There was definitely a major development in the plot, with the arrival of Kugel. Not to mention, they made it clear that Kugel was all for exerting dominance unto the citizens of Earth and making them as brain-dead as his followers.

In this episode you can also see that, even though Red was as uptight as Kugel when he first arrived, he's no longer as strong a supporter for violence as he was previously. This shows that staying in Gargantia changed him.

And duh, we all know it's for the better XP

What the hell, I still think this was an awesome shot of Lukkage XD
I was dying waiting in anticipation for this episode because I wanted to know who was Kugel and how he was doing.

However, now I just wished Kugel never appeared -.-

Unfortunately he did.

Either way, I had a funny feeling that their next target would be Gargantia. It's just something you can sense. It's still interesting, though. I wanted to kill myself waiting for the next episode. 

Ooh, and, I don't care if this makes me sound like a girl, but I loved it when Red saw Amy after he realised Kugel's target was Gargantia. Just shows how much he loves her >.<

Watch out for the last two episodes!! They'll be in the same post :)

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 10

Alright, I'm going to start cutting to the chase because I don't want to waste time, so here's the review for:

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 10
Suisei no Gargantia
Island of Ambition

Picking up from where the episode left off from Episode 9, after figuring out what was on the disk, Red became very...

What's the word for it? 

It's not 'lifeless', but he just seemed really confused and in a state of disbelief.

Pinion, on the other hand, after figuring out that Red had helped discovered a whole new array of weaponry, decided to broadcast to the entire world that he had 'em.

From here on out, you'd really start hating Pinion for being the dick that he is. Even if his intentions were not all bad, he's still an asshole.

At one point, Red starts thinking about everything that he has done so far under the alliance's orders. He's beginning to question all the things that he's done, whether or not they were for the right reasons.

So naturally, he'd snap when Pinion disturbs him. Honestly, Pinion deserved it, the stupid blonde -.-

Back at Gargantia, Ridget and the others are wondering if Pinion was really thinking when he was sending a radio message to the rest of the ships that he had found new weapons.

Bebel and the doctor are, of course, worried too, though I'm sure for different reasons.

And naturally, there would be a part of the episode dedicated to our loving heroine

She wasn't crying or anything, but Saaya was there to comfort her anyways. She even suggested the Amy go to where Red was, but Amy declined, to her relief.

On the other hand, Pinion was getting full of himself blasting ships away and making slaves of all the losing crew.

I really hated his guts here. How stupid could he get, really?

Dunce as he may be, though, Pinion knows when a man is feeling down, so he decides to cheer Red up.

Many people aboard their ship were glad. I don't think they felt it because they had new weapons, though.

Either way, Red couldn't really enjoy himself

He gets a flashback again, and this time he was thinking about the boy that looked like him.

Not long after, Pinion gets the rival who can finally kick his ass.

And I'm sure I don't need to tell you where the rival is from.

I know, I know, it was expected. Well, at least, I expected it. I knew that one day, someone would have to make a move. It was either Red leaving Earth, or them settling on it.

So it was the latter?

This episode was a more relaxed one. The only important things that happened was the new weapons that Pinion salvaged, how he used those weapons and the arrival of another of Red's colleagues.

When he had a flashback of the young boy who looked like him, something got me thinking, though. How is it he can't remember who he is and what relationship he shared with the boy although he knows he's seen him before?

10 episodes in and we still don't know?? Come on!!

Look out for episodes 11, 12 and 13! A possible post-together, just so you know!!

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 9

Before anyone says anything, I just want to say: "At least I'm getting started on it."

Yeah, so anyways, here's the review for:

Suisei no Gargantia Ep 9
Suisei no Gargantia
Deep Sea Secret

So this episode is all about what happens after Red and the others decide to leave Gargantia!

Pinion's obviously super excited with everything because he can finally 'salvage' whatever is at the bottom of the sea where the Hideauze live.

I'm guessing Red is quite indifferent at this point.

 Pinion has a flashback, however, halfway into the episode. He starts reminiscing about his brother (whose name escapes me, I don't think it was ever mentioned O.O).

Seems nasty, though, to have to accept the reality that your brother/sibling was devoured by something as twisted as the Hideauze.


Alright, so Red technically wipes out all the Hideauze there are in the area.

He found like a whole bunch of them – I think they were eggs – and used Chamber to vapourise 'em.


Midway through, he manages to find something hidden in a crate somewhere and asks Chamber to see if any information may be salvaged.

I shan't tell you the contents of the disk, otherwise this whole thing would be redundant. It's a review, not a spoiler -.-

Yeah, Red wasn't too pleased about what he found, and neither would I. 

He's finally learnt the truth behind the alliance he's from, and from the expressions on his face, you can tell he's really pissed and confused.

Meanwhile, our beloved Amy and Bebel are lounging around back at Gargantia without much of a care in the world 


Other than the fact that whatever was in the disk was exposed, this was quite a laid-back episode. Much of the episode-time was used up explaining the stuff in the disk so you'll have to watch in order to feel the full 24 minutes XD

Either way, this was a pretty okay episode. For one, it didn't focus so much on Amy, which is a relief from her in the previous episode where she was wailing-but-not-doing-anything-drastic-to-stop-Red.  Also, we got information on Hideauze, man!!

Truthfully speaking, I kind of predicted what was on the disk. It's quite predictable in that sense because most sci-fi stories would have some kind of weird-ass experiment in between, right?

Oops, don't wanna spoil it too much for you, eh?

Look out for episode 10, 11, 12 and 13! There's a high chance I might group them together so I can save time and post space XD
