Shit. I just realized I'm working the night that fucking movie comes out.
I never got in to the book, I don't exactly plan to, and I even lent the first one to Emma. I think I might just give her the other two, just to be rid of them. I don't see myself getting in to the whole Vampire thing, nothing ever really turned me on to them. But eh, I said the same thing about anime and cursed its very existence not too long ago.
I'm trying REALLY hard not to crack and watch Code Geass. I'm saving that entirely for Christmas break. But the pictures and the art just make me so happy ~hanyan~! And I was two seconds from getting that Lelouch figma, but I stopped myself. It's like... doing drugs. You say you want a to try a bit and then you'll stop, but that doesn't work for me. So I'm staying away from the whole figma and figure scene. I don't see a reason to have them at the moment anyway, considering that my living quarters are kind of... nomad in character. I don't really belong anywhere, or when I want to rest or relax or whatever, I don't have a set spot. Ick, that's kinda depressing, I'm not going to go in to that.
So on Friday, I was trying to kill 15 minutes and actually went in to the break room for my break (I'm usually outside eating or looking at books)! Turns out that there were two other girls there, and right on the table was Tokyopops release list for next year. With pretty pictures. I WAS EXCITED and tried not to spaz. I sat down and looked through it, and YEY Natsuki Takaya is releasing her first couple of mangas that she published. I wanted to order them online, but now I won't have to cuz she's releasing them soon! I do like how her art is extremely similar in all her books, and I just kinda wait for the Fruits Basket Characters to pop up, but they don't, so nyeh. And everyone's personality is so different, you wouldn't think that they were anything alike, but they do act in the similar I LOVE YOU way. Lets see, what else... there were other things that excited me too, but I can't quite remember them ^^;
So the girl in front of me was like "mmm, manga <3!" And I looked up and thought she was making fun of me, but her face was all happy. She was like "I love manga!" And inside, I was so very very happy <3! She asked me what my favorite series was, and I told her Fruits Basket and anything Clamp. And she went on a whole thing about Tsubasa and how much she loves Clamp too. So we were all giddy and talking about Clamp! She works in the kids section, and I work in the Cafe. THEN she was like "Have you heard of Gravitation?" and I was immediately brought back to the apartment with Jen. I still remember looking over her shoulder and seeing that she was watching an anime with a pink haired dude who liked the blonde haired one. I think his name was Yuki, and she was like WATCH WITH ME <3 It makes me sad to think how much more I could've appreciated living with someone like her. I miss Jen, and I hope she's ok.
But anyway, I said yes, and she was SO excited. She asked me if I liked it, and in truth, I didn't really. I just watched it until the end because Jen asked me to. The story seemed over worked to me, and I don't like the whole POPSTAR story thing. And the characters never really grabbed me. So I told her that I didn't like the anime and she was like NO, the anime was HORRIBLE, but the manga is so much better! So now I'm upset because I kinda wanna take a look at it, but my wallet will never forgive me. And I told her I was more in to Loveless, and she squeed. I've never seen anyone squee like that, i twas cute. BUT THEN.... OUR MANAGERS CAME IN. To my horror, she kept going on about the kitty ears, and how much she loves Ritsuka with Soubi and their whole relationship, and I saw one of them give us a weird look. I don't know how I must've looked with my smile frozen on my face and my eyes bloodshot from horror. I love Yaoi, that story I'm working on has gay guys, I'm very open about it with my family, but when it comes to the work environment, I tend to keep my mouth shut. They know I love anime and manga, but they don't know about the whole Yaoi situation. I must say, it was interesting. She saw that I looked uncomfortable, so she laughed and was like "Oh they know all about me, don't worry!" Our managers are all so sweet, I've never seen them outright judge us for our purchases. I love my job, and I met a new friend who I'll hopefully see again!
My purchases still haven't come. It's like someone doesn't want me to read Cardcaptor Sakura. OH YEAH <3333333 Wonderful news. HLJ had Your Eyes Only in stock, and they shipped it out to me already. Great price, available, and I'll have it very soon... I almost dropped the laptop when I read that they were sending it to me. I've been wanting this book since January. That's the longest I've wanted something. I still remember searching EVERYWHERE on the internet for it. I guess I just wasn't looking in the right places, but YEY I'm gonna have it within a week, definitely before Thanksgiving!
And I'm putting off reading the New Fruits Basket because I know I'm just gonna cry my eyes out. For a Manga. The only Manga that's made me do that is Yugioh and Fruits Basket. WHY?!?
