...It is with heavy heart that I pronounce that we have failed the Blood Brothers Trek (Hope trip). On day 2 of our trek, my left knee started to give out on me. My right knee could only compensate for my lesser knee for so long, and it too gave out right at the beginning of day 4, despite the extra day's rest I had given both (We took day 3 off). We managed to reach Mission (I limped the whole 7 hours), where it was decided that I could either become a cripple for life or go home a failiure/coward. Both outcomes presented themselves in the most bitter fashion, yet it was obvious where my favor lay. My friend Chase chose not to pursue the remainder of the trip by himself regardless of my efforts to dissuade and reassure him.
It's been 5 days since my return, and both my knees are here with me; however, I can't help but feel like I left something back in Mission.

Just got back last night. I have to put off translating until after I get back from my adventuring, which will start in 3 days. You see, since last December, Chase Disher (See About us) and I have decided to walk from Vancouver to Hope for the sake of our grand Canadian trek (The Hope trip will serve as warm-up). The trip there will take around 9 days, and we plan to canoe our way back. I should be back by mid-May. Sorry for any inconveniences and disappointments.
I'm going to start with Ushio to Tora first once this is all over.

Go watch The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. If you think Fate/Stay Night was good, you'll be blown away by this show. And if you didn't...well you'll be blown away regardless.
Time to watch episode 4.
Apr 18th, 2006
Spent the last 24 hours watching Fate/Stay Night episodes 01-15 on YouTube; man am I screwed for the finals (Less than 70 hours to go).
Regardless, I have good things to say about the show. You see, I haven't watched any anime since last August, when I came to the realization that watching anime in general is a huge waste of time. Even Cowboy Bebop, which is supposedly a grand show and the anime that I ended with, didn't do much for me. Sure, it's a perfectly good and watchable show, but that was about it. I figured that I had outgrown anime at last (Bittorent is to blame for my initial addiction to anime; it has given me access to more anime than I could ever hope to finish). Watching Fate/Stay Night hasn't changed my opinion on anime, but I will admit that it's good show (Save the usual cheesy/cliched Japanese relationship antics found within that's all but too common in most anime; thankfully, it's not frequent enough to be of hinderance to one's enjoyment of the show). Some people complain about the slow pacing and the wussy/stupid main character, but I haven't had a problem with either yet (Ok, the main character is pretty dumb, but he's not that wussy).
I may be giving it more credit than it deserves due to my watching during a stressful period, but I'm going to give myself the benefit of a doubt and say that people should check out the show. Just a little warning though - your ears will be assaulted by bad german and english dubs found during parts of the show, and there's really no way around it.
Oh yeah, go here for episode one (Search for the rest). If you want higher quality videos through bittorent, go here. Animesuki doesn't seem to carry it for some reason.

Going home in 11 days. Dealing with finals right now.
Angelfire has been good to me for these past few years, but I think it's time to change host. Will look into it once the finals are over. Wish me luck.

Dear readers: I'm still alive and kicking. I'll be heading back to Van in less than a month, so I'm pretty damn excited. Kelowna is such a boring ass town, to put it mildly. As soon as I'm back, I'm going to start working on Ushio to Tora, since that's what you guys seem to want more of. This time, I will be using the original Japanese version as source instead of the horribly inaccurate Taiwanese version produced back in the early 90s, so the translations will no longer be "...iffy at best". I'm aiming for one chapter a week, every Sunday, to make it seem more like Shonen Sunday (Official Japanese weekly manga magazine).
On to games: I just got my hands on Kingdom Hearts II, and I can't quite contain my excitement. If it weren't for Shadow Hearts:FTNW and my pummeling school marks holding me back, I'd be ripping into this game like a Coke addict on a mountain of Crack. Good things'll have to wait.
Shadow Hearts: From the New World is an awesome game, by the way. The game has a terrific sense of humour on how things are handled in the game, and it never gets dull for long. I'm clocked in at 29 hours, and yet I'm still looking forward to every little cutscene. They make the dungeons (Though a little on the excessive side) just that much more enjoyable. If you like RPGs in general, pick up a copy now rather than regret it later (And you will if you don't). It's only 49.99 CAD.
Man, being a lab monitor is sweet.

As promised in my guestbook, I'm going to rant a bit about games for the time being (Left all my manga at home, so I can't translate; not that I would since I'm pretty busy with school).
Grandia III is currently taking up most of my time (Horrible plot/Great battle system; couldn't agree more), but I must say I'm quite excited about Shadow Hearts: From the New World. It's the main reason I got into Shadow Hearts and SH: Covenant in the first place. Anyone out there looking for a quick RPG fix, you really should give Shadow Hearts a shot, as the game is just the right length (25-40 hours), and is loaded with good characters and humorous dialogue. I certainly don't regret forking over 40US for my used copy on E-Bay. SH: Covenant didn't leave that big of an impression on me, but I only tried it for 2 hours, so I'm not being fair here. I skipped it to finish Grandia III first, because I heard it was short (I'm 30 hours into the game, but I'm only in Bacculi; I guess I'm not the fastest player). That only leaves Suikoden V, Kingdom Hearts II, Okami, Yakuza, Final Fantasy XII, Valkyrie Profile:Silmeria for the rest of 2006. I'll let you guys know my thoughts after they are released.
My friend showed me this awesome webcomic last week, and I've not been the same ever since. You guys have to check it out. I also recommend Achewood and White Ninja Comics.
If anyone's looking for an official Sony PlayStation One memory card, I'm your man. I have around 233 in stock here, and they are all factory sealed. E-mail me if you are interested. Note: They are not free, so don't get too excited.

Hello, everyone. I guess I'm not quite ready to give up on this site yet. Expect me to make a great comeback after April (When University's over).
