I've picked up a PS One. You know, them mini PSX's? Yeah, those. And I already have a screen I've been using with other consoles (it has composite input).... Yes, I know it's a bad thing, but now I can play games at school! XD I intend to take this opportunity to play Xenogears again. I've been tempted ever since my last 3-D design project, where I rendered one of the enemies in foam. For my next project, I'm rendering the third stage of Deus, also in foam, and I still have the hankering to play again. ^^; So yeah, I'm only two hours into it right now, but I'll make sure to get further. XD

I was talking with my friend the other day and for one reason or another, we came upon an interesting subject. Why is it that girls can call other girls cute and why guys can't call other guys cute. I know, if you call another guy cute, you might be branded as *gasp* gay. >.< Honestly now, I haven't yet felt romantic feelings about any guy, but I'm ready and willing to say that I possibly know a guy or two who are cute for one reason or another. Does that make me any less of a guy? Does that mean I'm gay? Really now.

Finished Stellvia. Instead of a all-out review, I've decided to make something of a blurb. I'm lazy, so nyeh:

It's been too long since I last saw, what I like to call, a "space drama." You know, sci-fi series that take place in space and focus primarily on human interaction and drama. It may not be the most original or spectacular example of anything, but what I found it to be was interesting through and through. One thing I have to really give this series a lot of props for is the characterization. They are some of the most compelling and, in some instances, realistic character protrails I've ever seen. Especially the main character of Katase "Shipon" Shima. To put it simply, sometimes she's just a brat. She will whine like hoy and otherwise do some pretty childish things. To many, I'm sure that makes her an annoying character, but to me, that just makes her character all the more compelling. You can feel a lot more humanity in her than the average idealized anime character. Oh, and just while I'm talking about characters, I just want to say that Machida Ayaka rules. She just does. ^^ Anyway, while I like to focus in on the characterization because it's my favorite aspect of any anime series, you more plot-oriented viewers have plenty to find in Stellvia too. I never really felt like the story was forced and it kept me interested all the way through. Eh... I don't know what else to say, so yeah.... Watch Stellvia! XD
