Got a free ticket for Ghost in the Shell from Crunchyroll. I almost walked out during the first half hour but got myself to sit through it. I wasn't a fan of the original animated movie (I thought it was okay) and this one wasn't much better or worse. I thought Beat Takeshi was wasted in this movie. Yeah, he looked badass at the end but he really didn't fit in with the rest of the movie especially since he's the only one who spoke Japanese (what was with that anyways, him being the only character who did that?). I wasn't bothered by the white-washing. The CEO was white, the tech team was white, they're replacing her original body anyways, just make her white! The city was totally Blade Runner. Probably because of that, it totally did not blow me away because for all the CGI used, it didn't feel any more spectacular in comparison to Blade Runner's city. I'm surprised at the amount of scenes the live action lifted from the animated version. I give it a C-. Watchable but barely. I'm glad it was a free ticket. :p

I got this set when Amazon put them on clearance for $17 back during the 2013 holiday season. However, it wasn't until 2015 that I got around to putting it together. ^^;; This is based off the new movie version of the Enterprise and was part of the toy merchandise for Into Darkness (which sucked bricks, btw :P).

So I said I would talk about PaD. It's a mobile game that's pretty much taken up almost all of my game playing time and then some. It's basically your typical mobile monster/card collection game combined with a match-3 puzzle game element.

And another year comes and goes...LOL. orz
Arguably the main reason for leaving the blog on the side for so long is that most of my free time had been taken up by the mobile game Puzzle and Dragons which I'll cover in the next post. That and reading manga on Comico which I'll also cover some time...maybe. Thanks to PaD, I've left a whole bunch of stuff to the side, Anime to watch, toys to open up and play. My room's a mess due to unopened toys and too much toys left out in the open. I might have to either sell or throw out some of my toys depending on how bad I feel the situation is.
Boxes of stuff...orz
Transformers toys has been a hit and miss across the board. I'd say the movie line for the most part was a miss and Generations line more or less a hit with the Combiner Wars and now Titans Return series.
My work has more or less stabilized for the time being so that should allow me to better manage my time so I can get to doing some spring cleaning and blog posting. Things always like getting in the way though...like myself. *dies* orz
