“With dreams of becoming a composer and someday writing a song for her favorite idol, Haruka Nanami enters the Saotome Academy, a prestigious performing arts school. If successful there, she’ll be able to join the Shining Agency after graduation. However, it won’t be so easy when Haruka is already surrounded by potential idols and composers. On top of that, her homeroom teacher is a current idol, the headmaster was a record-breaking singer, and the academy itself is an eccentric place where anything could possibly happen.

In the end, right at the graduation, two students are to be teamed up by the choice, one will take the role of the idol and the other should be the composer. After being paired up, they will sing a song that was both composed, written and sung by them. If successful, they will join and take the spot as the new Shining Agency debut artists. In addition, romance is strictly prohibited at their school.”

Review

Okay, yes. I have officially fallen in love with Anime. I didn’t used to watch it ever, but I’ve just fallen in love with so many good shows and this one was silly, but still an enjoyable watch. If you are looking for a deep story, then this is definitely not the show that you are looking for, but it was still so cute either way and definitely gave me some good laughs.

The characters were funny and there was some development and there were some quite good songs. I have an obsession with the soundtrack as a lot of it was piano music and as a pianist I automatically have a love for that kind of stuff, so I just can’t stop listening to the soundtrack, even though I have NO idea what they are saying.

The animations were cute in it and the drawings were adorable, and yes, you can’t not help but fall in love with the cast. Maybe it’s just me, but I honestly think some anime characters are like…really..really..really good looking. Damn animes by setting standards too high xD

But yes, this was honestly a cute little thing to watch if you have some time to spare and just need a distraction. The episodes aren’t that long but I will tell you, by the end of Season 2, you will wish that they continued on, just because.

You can watch all 2 seasons on CrunchyRoll which is a website with many full seasons of anime shows. Make sure you scroll down and find the button for Season 1 as I started Season 2 before I realized I had skipped parts. Click here to go to the website.

And enjoy! Let me know what you think. ^^

Unfortunately there are no trailers, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one xD

Flying Rant

Have you ever flown before?

You most likely have. Even if it was for a short jaunt to a few states away. Now, the majority of you, actually the overwhelming majority of you haven’t flown on a private jet. If that’s how you fly, then lucky you, and this post probably won’t pertain to you per se.

But the rest of us, who have the fly with the great unwashed will understand the pain which I am about to lay out for you. I’m just going to lay it out how it is. No sugar-coating.

Flying is a SERIOUS pain in the ass.

It’s not like it used to be. You used to get preferential treatment if you paid a little more, early boarding if you had a child, and the elderly used to get early boarding as well. But no. All that is gone.

You have a little kid, you can wait with everyone else. You’re elderly, you can do the same, unless you’re in a wheel chair or are injured.

Now, I fly United (previously Continental), so I can only comment on what I see with them, but all around, the complains are quite the same. With United, you get boarded by group (which is new), and of course, on my most recently flight, I was group 5. The last group to board. Now that is whatever. I don’t care when I board. But…once on the plane, I wish I was number 1. They’ve limited how much you can bring on the plane, and they let you bring two carry on’s; one for the overhead and one for under the seat before you. That’s great and all, but being group 5 means….THERE IS NO OVERHEAD ROOM AS THE IDIOTS BEFORE AND BEHIND YOU TOOK YOUR SPOTS!

>An annoyed huff would leave from her lips.<

So you shove their shit out of the way and get your bag in. FINALLY. But you have the second bag, which, as I sat in an aisle seat, DIDN’T FIT because apparently they put the life vest before you in the aisle, so, I couldn’t fit it. Fantastic. -.-

Okay, so all that is out of the way. You sit down. Thank god. You made it. Now you can just re——.

The seats. Oh god. The seats. I mean come on. They don’t even put you sitting up right. It’s like they’re trying to push your head into your legs, making your torso and legs at a less than 90 degree angle.

How are you supposed to get comfortable sitting like that?

No. Freaking. Clue.

Eventually you can put your seat back a little bit. Key words. “Little bit.”

I mean, this is all just a pain in the ass.

You also have the food. I mean, thankfully since I went international they gave food. But it was like a snack. The portions are smaller, the food really isn’t great, and it doesn’t come until an hour into the flight.

And after my flight was delayed almost two hours because of gate changes and then a failure with the baggage belt, I was hungry. So, we didn’t eat till like 930pm or so.

Overall I hated it. Flying used to be enjoyable, but not anymore.

You’re constantly shoving the arm of the idiot next to you out of the way. And god-forbid you want to use the restroom and someone is coming your way AWAY from the bathroom, or visa versa. You have to like dive into the seat of a stranger to get out of the way.

And if you need to go when the food cart is in the way. Good luck. You’re gonna wish you wore your depends because they take forever and WILL NOT move.

Honestly, I can’t even say pay a little extra money to go first class because A) it’s not even a little bit of money. It’s a lot. And B) because first class isn’t much better. I flew Business a little while ago, maybe 2 years or so, and the seats were much smaller than when I had flown it once before, and overall it wasn’t anything HORRIBLY special. If you are going long distance in economy, I wish you luck and god-speed because I could barely survive 6 and a half hours. I watched that “time until destination” clock like my life depended on it.

Thankfully there were movies, but, that only helps so much.

But then on the way back, ughhhhhh. So like my button on the seat that helps it recline, I pushed it to recline slightly yet the damn bugger got stuck. So, for the rest of my flight, if I put pressure on my seat it would fall backwards. So, for the flight, which was 8 hours because of the tailwind, I had to sit up straight. To say I was unhappy was an understatement.

If you have similar experiences, please tell me and let’s get this rant going. Because I can’t be the only one who hates this. I know I’m not.

So where y’all who hate flying? Raise your hand! >Raises her hands and legs and waves them around.<

‘How Far Your Favorite Authors Went For Their Love Of Books’

Everyone does something stupid for a book. You continue to read it as you walk into a mall and walk face first into an automatic door (haven’t done that yet.) You walk around your house reading it and miscalculated a doorway, walking smack into a door (done that.) You stay up into a new day to try to finish the pages of your favorite book (been there and done that LOTS of times.)

But these authors, some of them, went a little bit beyond. Click here to find out just how far they went for their love of books.

Summer Goal Book

Each summer I try to choose a book which will challenge me and may not be enjoyable to read, but I will finish it just for the experience. A few years ago I started Dracula by Bram Stoker, but it took me like 2 years to finish.

The book I am reaching for this year may take me that long…but I would like to finish it by September.

And my goal book…

Of Summer….

2014….

Is……

>Epic drum roll starts<

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

>Cue mouths gaping open<

Yes I know it is going to be REALLY hard to read and keep interested in…but I want to do it. So wish me luck.

Has anyone read it? What did you think if you have? And do you think I’m nuts for trying this…? I do xD

Happy Reading everyone…I know that I will be happy…ish.
