Starting off with one of the most … wondrous airplanes you’ll ever see in history of mankind. I mean only for the decoration of it, the rest is plainly normal.
Why she’ll ever need a two stories airplane for just flying 2 people… (cabin crew & captain not included) is beyond me. I guess that’s what it means to be rich. Just point at an object and obtain it. -_-
Okay, now I expect you to want the tl;dr version of why it’s late.
First off, fansubbing won’t bring me food on my table, unfortunately. If it did maybe I would be more focused on doing it.
Therefore, since it won’t bring me millions so I can buy my own airplane, I have to work. Sucks huh.
Having said that, the last three weeks of mine have been very tough on me to get a fitting time schedule. At my job, I have gotten a new area to be responsible for, which I haven’t ever done before.
I also got a new company car for doing that job. Along with more responsibilities. Like refuelling it (lol). Anyway, this included in me having to go through an educational course to learn how to drive this new car. It’s so called “half automatic”, which, as the name implies, you can use both automatic and manual mode of driving. That comes with its own quirks, which do take time to learn. Fortunately I’m still young so I can absorb new informaton easily. I can only imagine the horror for my older co-workers.
After learning about this new car there was my new area that I said before, I had to sacrifice free time on my day to go out and inspect it! Yes, that means fansubbing = impossible. It took a good 3-4 days (3.5h each day) to study the route good enough to not make mistakes. Even so, after driving it the first week, I’ve done plenty of them. And there’s still more to come, I’m afraid.
Driving in complete darkness (even with extra lights mounted) isn’t that easy, especially when I drive 140km (87 miles) every night… You should get the idea.
It’s not just driving, it’s sorting out what’s in your car to give out to the appropriate person. I expect I’m slowing down and accelerating around 250 times to sort out mail. You wouldn’t really want to use manual driving then…
That was the first excuse.
The second one is the other “real life” things going on, like the insurance company wanting to give me some information on a retiring plan. Yeah, I still have another 40 or so years before that! Like I wanna care…
Anyway, I do take up on the offer and go there. Learning things about fees and other stuff, which is quite interesting how much they can really differ. You’d be surprised.
Under “real life” things I guess I can also add that my grandmother’s gotten 100 years old. She’s still alive and “kicking”. There was another day lost of fansubbing.
Excuse #3 is something I can actually do something with. It’s about my own will. I decided to play an AG MMORPG called Lunia and devoted WAY too many hours into that (7 hours a day anyone? Don’t forget those hours I’m working/eating as well). Thus, fansubbing was hurt in the process. In my will also includes taking the time and effort to let Ichigo out of her enclosed 1’s and 0’s and let my processor read that information for me, in a way I can understand it. But as everyone knows, it’s much easier to watch someone else’s finished work and just enjoy what show they’ve done. I have to pay my respect to all those other long running fansubbers who still cares to devote their time and effort into translating and putting out easily digestible subs for everyone to watch. Many times not even I would understand more than 70% of what they’re saying. Sometimes I don’t understand it even with fansubs.
Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei is one of those… Recommended to watch still. They make fun of everything and everyone, bring up subjects and angles you’d never believe existed. It’s currently 3 seasons (12 eps each) and an OAD long, so it’s not too much to watch (unlike Naruto/Bleach/One Piece and the likes).
TL; DR ENDS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, now for the good stuff, the things you’ve finally been waiting for patiently. Yes, I did promise a 6-9 day wait for a triple release. I’m still working on it and I’m gonna put in a lot of -effort- to make it happen. That includes clearing my work log that I’m behind and getting some nice things out, such as Mermaid Melody (and of course more Yumeiro) which has been neglected for way too long. This means basically…… *coughs, doesn’t say more and lets time do whatever’s necessary instead*
Having said that, I was gonna make a mspaint draw job of the love polygon that is occuring in the show. Natsume has finally realized her love for her elder sister and shows it 9 episodes later, where she … does some unexplainable things that can’t be covered in words. You just have to see it for yourself. And I cannot illustrate it because….. THIS SHOW IS STILL INAPPROPRIATE TO CHILDREN!
Anyway, after 900 words (was 975 originally, I lost some due to internet problems) here’s the links!
MMC Edit: More Tantei and Anyamal coming up next.
