Spring break so far


All Spring break I've just been kicking it back, taking it easy as always. Kanji grinding's still going smooth, at 438 right now. Though, I guess it helps that I've already bumped into quite a few of them with my previous studies, helps make the path a bit more smooth. But there are some oddballs in there that I don't recall ever seeing and have some pretty odd keywords (who the hell knows what a brocade is off the top of their head?)

Today I decided I'd take something from my backlog that's been sitting there for a while. Decided I'd try Koumajou Densetsu II, which is better known as Touhouvania II. I only planned on playing for an hour or two but pretty much used my whole day on it. It's amazing I even managed to get in my 25 kanji today with all the time I used up on this game. I made it up to the last stage, but I keep getting my ass handed to me. I eventually decided I'd just stop before I really eat my whole day up on it.

I might do a review on it sometime this week. I would do one today since I'm already at the final boss, but I'd like to get more snapshots of more stages and don't want to erase my continued data right now. I have to try a 1CC playtrhrough sometime anyway so I can do the extra stages (though I doubt I'll be able to do that without practicing boss patterns like crazy). Tomorrow I'll think of something to post here.

Spring break's going by too fast, it's already almost over. I guess it can't be helped though. On the bright side I can say that another day that passes is another day of experience gained with my Japanese.

Now I'll do some Anki reps and then take a nap.

I'm actually really glad they had voice acting in the second game. I could more or less understand the gist of what they were saying because of it.

I'm not really sure if I ever 1CC'd the Phantasm stage. I wish Alice had more charisma in this series.

Nerds like me who did nothing but read novels all through middle and high school, heh.

Isn't it great?

I really need to play that. I went through the first one and I really enjoyed it. But I know Koumajou Densetsu 2 is superior in a many ways.

I don't see anything wrong with that. It doesn't seem to be cutting into your study time. Unless you have other responsibilities to attend to.

That would be great.
