Hiya Guys! Welcome to Ryuchu's Random Rants (a.k.a. RRR). This is a place where quite literally I'll rant about anything I feel need ranting about. My life, anime, video games, books...etc.
Since this will be full of all my personal opinions, It'll most likely contain spoilers at one time or another, so I guess if there are spoilers...I'll put a warning in the title of the post! (I really wouldn't want to black out a whole post with that black line thingy...that would be weird) ^-^
So Aywho (I LOVE THAT WORD!), enjoy your time here at RRR and welcome yourself to the secret workings of an insane person!

"I looked at my right hand, the hand with which I painted. There was power in that hand. Power to create and destroy. Power to bring pleasure and pain. Power to amuse and to horrify. There was in that hand the demonic and the divine. The demonic and the divine were two aspects of the same force. Creation was demonic and divine. Creativity was demonic and divine. Art was demonic and divine." --Chaim Potoko, "My Name is Asher Lev"
EDIT!!!: ANVKE;JTIDJKDFJJDKHKDGJ :DDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!! THEY HAVE AN EXTRA EPISODE OF CLANNAD THAT'S SET IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE WITH KYOU AND RYOU GOING AFTER TOMOYA THAT JUST CAME OUT!!!!!! :DDDDDDDDD *runs off the fill her Clannad fix ~<3*
Well, this first part isn't spoilers! Uguuu~ I finally got around to finishing up the final KEY work that I have yet to watch...I kinda watched them out of order whoops! ^^ You guys should go watch this anime! It's so cute and funny and sad (big time on the sad). And at the same time, go watch AIR and Clannad, becuase those also happen to be amazing :D (although by biggest love is still Clannad...I'm so biased~~)
I mean it guys! Don't read this if you haven't finished (or started) this series yet (that means you Kasa-chan since I'm pretty sure you haven't finished it yet!). It is a supremely awesome awesome (albeit slightly depressing not as depressing as Clannad T-T) anime.
NOW! Here comes the spoilers :D
OH MY GOSH!!!! I serisouly cried my eyes out at the part with Ayu when you thought she was dead and she just disapeared! But I positively loved the love confession between Ayu and Yuuichi. It was so unexpected and adowable Auuu~ ~<3. AND THEN!!!! When Ayu WASN'T dead I was sooooo dang happy!!! :DDDDDDDD (and her hair cut and hat was so cute ^^) Also, getting off the topic of Ayu (XD) I was so happy when Kaori accepted Shiori and Shiori ended up being okay ^^. AND I thought it was a sweet little twist to have the REAL Makoto show up. I just loved this anime so much :D
Hmm...I suppose that's it for spoilers ^^. I really wonder what tragedys KEY can manage to come up with for their next work...although I know they already released Little Busters, but I think that was a more light hearted game. I also know that their already starting production on another work (that I can't think of the name for right now), So I'll have to wait and see ^^.
Also when watching this, I couldn't help but run it parallel to the other KEY works (those being Clannad and AIR). All I can say is if you enjoyed one, you'll enjoy the others, because their very similar :D. Also, if you want an order to watch it in, watch AIR then Kanon (the 2006 re-make) and then Clannad (which includes the ~After Story~ part). If you watch it in that order, the plot lines just get more complex and compelling as you go along (in personal opinion :3).
Well then, thank you so much for sitting around for my random "I love anime by KEY" rant :3. Next time I'll make sure to have something more relevent and interesting for you guys to read...maybe XD.
M'kay, Bye bye till then! Uguu~
Hey guess what guys, I passed! :3
Yeah, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be (but as I was waiting for the instructor, I felt like I was seriously going to puke!) So I just had to drive around a little, park uphill and back around a corner. It wasn't all bad!
Oh and this is a random little note for Kasa-chan! I didn't hit any innocent squirrels or bunnies (ferral or otherwise). BUT on the way back, after I had already gotten my license, there was a dead squirrel in the road. Oh the irony :D P.S. I'm working on the art trade right now! I like how it's coming out so far~
...I supose that's all...I don't have much else to report, considering I just posted yesterday. OH! I passed my constitution test, so I woun't be failing my geovernment class. Yay horray!
Kay, Bye bye peeps~
Gah! I am so dang nervous right now! My tummy is turnning flip-flops D:
Wanna know why? (even if you don't I'm going to tell you :3)
I have to go take my test to get my drivers license tomorrow! Eh...it's scary! I get so nervous with normal testing and now it's going to be in a car, with an instructor I've never met, and my horrible sense of direction. I'm so scared that I ish going to fail! Technically, I supose I could have gotten my license like...over half a year ago...but I didn't want to face the test...now I have toooooooo! D:
On a related note, my dad made me drive for myself for the first time today. I just drove around the neighborhood, so it wasn't too bad...but it was so quiet! It was a good thing I had the radio on or else I might have gone nutso!
Oh, and I have a Constitution Test, which is the government test you have to pass in order to pass the class...but I'm not really nervous about that. It should be easy peasy lemon squeezy!
...I'm going to go have some Mike-n-Ikes to calm my nerves (their my antidepresents ^-^)
Hopefully, your lives are less stressfull than mine right. Now, you guys just have to wait for the
bad hopefully good news tomorrow! ^-^
Random Fact: Did you know that in 1996, Ringo Starr appeared in a Japanese advertisment for apple sauce, which coincidentally is what "ringo" means in Japanese?
Just a lovely little random fact to lighten up your life~! I got it from this awesome book which is called "The Best Book of Useless Information Ever". It has lots of little random tidbits like that, and since I'm a big Beatles fan, I thought I would share that lovely little fact with you!
If you're curious about the title, randomly we decided to have a chocolate chip cookie bake off in my government class to "demonstrate majority vote" (best excuse to bake cookies ever!). It was the teacher, me, another girl and another boy. I managed to come in second~ (teacher came in first, but come on, she's a teacher!). Yay hooray for me! ^-^
slightly related note, I ish on a diet. My goal is to lose 15 pounds over this summer. It's going well so far, I've already lost 3 pounds :D. And plus, it means I get to run outside and enjoy the nice weather (and become tan and more blonde than I already am). But that also means I didn't get to eat any off the cookies. *sigh* such is the life of a person on a diet. Ah well, it'll pay off in the end!
On a completely unrelated note, I just got this game yesterday called Knights in the Nightmare. It's really fun and the battle system is really unique. You control this spirit and basically command everything on the battlefield but all these bullets come after you and if you get hit too many times, your turn ends...yeah it's hard to describe :3. It's kinda a RPG actionish combo...check it out if you're still confused by my wording!
I still haven't finished D. Gray-Man~ I'm on ep. 66 right now, but I hope to finish it at some point very soon. Then I think I'm gonna watch either Kanon or Rumbling Hearts (which are both in no way related with D. Gray-Man).
Alrighty then guys, have fun until I talk to you again! I'm off to go eat some cottage cheese and watermelon! (healthy stuff :D)
Hiya guys!~ Not sure how long this post is going to be 'cause I'm sitting in summer school and we're supposed to be working on our debates, but I is being lazy (well, not too lazy. I have all the research done for my 3 topics and I've already written everything for my 2...so I just have to work on the last one)
If your curious, my debates are...
1. Marijuana should be legalized
2. Affirmative action is a form of reverse discrimination
3. Military service should be mandatory
Yeah, but I possitively love debates~, but every time I have one I want to slam my hands on the desk and yell "OBJECTION!!!"...but that would get me some weird looks ^-^
So onto anime news! I've already managed to watch 3 full animes (Scrapped Princess, AIR and Ballad of a Shinigami) this summer and it's only been about...oh 5 days I believe. Plus, I have to blance summer school with all that so yeah. Right now I'm chipping my way through D. Gray-man. It's pretty good so far! (I'm only on ep. 32 though)
Alrighty then! I have to go and "work" on my debates before my teach comes over here and starts wondering what I'm up to! Buh-bye peeps!
