"Courtesy is the first step to adulthood" by Zeepish

Right... To continue where I left off from the previous post... which is like about 28 days later... I retook my driving test. Oh yah, I have two news to deliver to you people today. A good one, and a bad one.

Well, let's hear the good one first. YEAH!!! I passed my test!!! Good riddance, now I can finally drive on the road with a valid licence.

Now, for the bad one. Me passing my test is probably no thanks to my extraodinary driving skills. After all, I did pay quite an exorbitant amount of "coffee money". So people out there who are itching to get into a drive with me, kindly place your good cherished life into my hands at your own risk. Well, don't say I didn't warn you...

If you're in the mood for more senseless gibberish, do continue reading. If you're not, just simply plant a comment before you leave - as an ACT OF COURTESY. Since the people reading this blog is mostly my friends and... well, my friends, which is like about my age, which means that they're maturing into young adults - ladies and gentlemen (let's just assume), courtesy is the first step to adulthood. It seems that the world has been sadly lacking of courteous people, due to a fast-paced, incredibly insane and a so-not-courteous society. The result? The response to my blog is practically zilch. Scratch that, not practically! The response to my blog is zilch. Nada. Goose eggs. Zippo. ZERO!!!

... So says the person who keeps asking for comments and Her Royal Highness doesn't do shit, sits around and only work on a post per month. Well, if you would excuse her, Her Royal Highness is leading a incredibly hectic life everyday. Her mornings consist of trying her best to pry open her eyes and get her brains working - a rather impressive feat for her, I would say . Her afternoons consist of listening to her ministers and state advisors, yada yada and their boring preechings at college. Her nights consist of rushing mountains of paperwork for her ministers and watching videos after videos of japanese anime under the pretense of understanding Japan better and creating a friendlier diplomatic relationship. See, Her Royal Highness is very busy.

Okay, before I got sidetrackked again, let me re-emphasise the topic for today. We're talking about courtesy, not laziness, not indolence. So, my good friends to the ladies and gentlemen who are reading this post now, do remember to drop a comment before you leave. After all, it's all about courtesy.

Anyway, before I continue babbling, it's already time for the 2007 Autumn anime season again. Really, tempus fugit.

Note to all: I'm just posting on the sries of anime that I find interesting. It doesn't mean that the Autumn releases are only slated for the few posted below.

Shakugan no Shana II
Premieres October 4th, 2007

Yes. This is the sequel to one of the most "lengendary" anime of the decade: Shakugan no Shana. If you are an anime lover, you should have at lesat heard of it. Heck, you should have at least watched it. Following from when the previous series left off, Yuji is revealed to be a mystes, a "torch" of nearly unlimited Power of Existince. And now, the Denizens want to capture Yuji and use him to upset the balance of the Realm. You get the drift? Yada yada.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Premieres October 6th, 2007

Not that I'm into Mecha or anything, it's been a looong time since I've watched a Gundam series - the last one being Gundam Seed. The main reason why I chose to watch this show isn't because of the story, the seiyuus, the robots or anything. It's the parade of hotties that are being animated into the picture. *wink* Need I say more?

Rental Magica
Premieres October 7th, 2007

Succeeding his father as the president of a magician employment agency, Itsuki Iba is now in charge of a big employment agency that employs countless magicians and other supernatural beings in order to send them out to help those who need magical assistance.

Ghost Hound
Premieres October 18th, 2007

Ghost Hound has three boys who all experienced trauma in their childhood and have learned a sort of soul escape that lets their spirits enter what’s called the Unseen World. The character designs might look very familiar because they’re done by Oka Mariko of Jigoku Shoujo fame. In any case, I smell mysteries...

Okay I'm done for the day. Another looong post to make up for the lazy days I didn't update. And before you leave, remember, comments ^_^.

Reverse Harem! Tell me, which woman in her sane mind would not love reverse harem? I've practically watched every reverse harem anime there is to watch. Well, with the exception of angelique. But anyway, loved HaruToki, loved La Corda, and of course, loved OURAN!!!!! >_< Kyaaa!!! Tamaki!!!

fishbone said...

ehhh! gundam has another series!!??

SimplePlanGaL said...

I'm not courteous. I have no desire to be an adult too soon. Anime characters would be younger than me. ARGH. So would all the hot Hollywood hunks be younger than me. In fact, they already are!

Imagine ourselves at 80, drooling over the latest Tamaki version or Tsukimori Len - all aged 16/17.

>.< So sad.


Who am I? Hmm. Here's a hint.

"Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at the stars because we are human?"

. . .


. . .

"I have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is. I only know that people call me a feminist when I say something that differentiates me from a doormat or a prostitute."

Zeepish said...


... Couldn't have been more obvious.

轡田.俊平 said...

haha its a bit too late to drop a comment here, but hey. the whole topic makes a whole lot of sense, unless you know, if you're totally senseless to comprehend the basic instinct of a human's mind. bah.. we got a whole lot of pple with that "one kind" mindset in this "righteous" country. lol.
