I finished Shaman King

Posted in fight, fun on June 29th, 2011 by roxyfighter

I finished watching Shaman King! It has 64 episodes. I watched about 30 episodes when I was in college, but then couldn’t get it any more.

Fast forward 8 years, and here I am! I was recalling some of the anime I used to watch, and thought, “oh yeah, I gotta try and finish that Shaman King!” So I rewatched it from the beginning.

The plot is about people (humans) who can control a spirit and use it to do various things, for example fight, or protect wildlife, or cause chaos, douse for water, whatever.

I really got to like certain characters over time. I even came to like Anna and Ryu, both of whom I thought I would never like. I think my favorite character at first was Ren. (It helps that he’s voiced by my favorite voice actress Romi Paku, who did Ed in Full Metal Alchemist.) But actually, I really came to like Yoh, and Amidamaru is so cool. I really like his heart, even though his attitude is a little too relaxed. LOL Things always work out. Nan to ka naru yo ne! ^^

I watched the last four eps this morning, and really enjoyed them. I liked how it ended, although it didn’t end with Hao. Hahahaha (oh gosh @_@ *Ren stabs me*)

I love Chocolove and his HORRIBLE jokes that even *I* don’t find funny, and I have a pretty corney sense of humor. LOL

So anyway, that was nice.
Off to morning training now.
I wonder who’ll come.
I’m gonna do some cardio before class starts. I got over my cold, but my throat still feels funny. ~_~; I don’t wanna over-do it too much. I only have ten days before my fight!!

Care a lot, we care a lot! :D

Kojima-san: I thought I could buy a ticket and go watch you fight, but I have to teach class…. :/
Roxy: Actually…my normal coaches can’t corner me, so I was wondering if I could ask you…
Kojima-san: OH ABSOLUTELY! I’ll corner you! Leave it to me! And Ota-san, too!

Later, Ota-san half volunteered/ was half volunteered by Kojima-san. Another fellow’ll teach class. Man, that’s more than I could hope for …I’m so grateful that they’d do that for me!! I’m not even an official member of Zst Fight Club.

I’m so relieved.

My co-workers were getting together after work, and it might have been one of my last chances to hang out with them, but needed to spar. I went to ZFC and did sparring with Kojima-san, and then Hattori-san showed up. Kojima-san really helped me out….

Yesterday and tonight, I watched the Care Bear Movie II. Dark Heart takes over the camp. I just noticed that the Care Bear babies grew up over night, literally. XD The kids were still at summer camp. Actually, when the songs started, I could sing them along with the singer simultaneously.

This is actually more than a little amazing, considering the last time I watched this movie was when I was like 7 years old or something. This means that I watched it so much I memorized the script. LOL Maybe that’s why I am the way I am? Care a lot, we care a lot! 😀 *clap clap*

Why are Kojima-san and Ota-san cornering me? THEY CARE! 😀 Feel the love, people! Okay, everyone who reads this has to tell someone that they care before the day is over. ^_~

Beeee yourself! :D

“Remember, beeeee yourself!” 😀

You know how it is when you like something but the rest of the world thinks you’re weird?

Of course you do! Actually, it may not be the rest of the world.

I got teased A LOT in elementary and middle school and was called “weird” because I didn’t like to go along with the common trend. I went home crying to Mom, and Mom said, “Honey, you’re not ‘weird.’ You’re ‘unique.'” ^_^v

Now that I’m an adult, I’m still wearing funny socks, mismatching my clothes, wearing gag and anime T-shirts, cracking horrible jokes that I think are HILARIOUS. If *I’m* amused, that’s all that’s important, right? XD

As the genie said to Aladdin, “Remember! Beeee yourself!” 😀 The chicks dig it.

Example: I walked into a classroom to teach a middle-aged woman, with a daughter college age. She had a CareBear pen.
Roxy: *Squeel* OH! I have that pen!
woman: Oh really?!
Roxy: YES! 😀 SO CUTE!
woman: I KNOW, ISN’T IT?
Roxy: They used to be a cartoon when I was a kid! Look! *whips out a Carebear pencil*
woman: OH! CUTE! 😀

Perfectly socially acceptable. I am twenty eight years old. You see, in Japan, being ‘cute’ is ‘cool,’ especially for ladies. I see men with Mickey Mouse keychains hanging off their bags, cell phones, and meterosexual ‘man-purses.’ It’s all good. I can really be myself here. And I don’t give a damn what anyone thinks! Chances are SOMEBODY else digs it. Even if it’s my 10 year old kids class. LOL Look, dancing radishes! IT’S AMAZING, IS IT NOT? Come on, tell me you DON’T wanna at least try the radish pencil. ;P

I wear kid’s anime socks with Dragon Ball Z and Naruto. Now even Japanese people consider that a little ‘odd’ but not necessarily ‘child-like.’ LOL Kadowaki-san said, “You’re such an Otaku!” (anime freak). Kunioku just shakes his head and laughs. 😀 My dad would say, “Babyish!” in a disapproving way. (He did, once, when I came back from Japan sporting my stuff). I have a Care Bear bed sheet and I don’t care! Nya nya!
I think it’s the bees knees. >:D (See, that expression is from 30 years ago or something, but I think it’s funny so I’m a’using it)

That being said, look! I got a new scrubbie! 😀 See my old doggie one, and my new Banana one I got at the hyaku en shop! (dollar store)! Banana with a capital “B” because Bananas are always the answer. Right? ;D

that feeling (I love my co-workers)

Roxy: Just enjoying the feeling, you know. *breaks into song* And when I get that feeling….!
co-worker 1: Are you going to finish that? ;D
co-worker 2: Yes, are you going to finish that? >:D
Roxy: LOL um, no… XD
co-worker 2: You know, I’m glad you asked that first. 😛
co-worker 1: But you said it, too. 😛
co-worker 2: I know, but I just echoed you! 🙂
co-worker 1: I just thought for a second, there, that’d we’d hear a little…. song outta Roxy.
Roxy: Nope 😀

Hahahaha <3 I had a nice morning chatting with friends online. I still need a chatroom, though. :/ It's being worked on.... I hope soon. I also watched Tekken, the movie with Cung Lee and Robert Huerta (and others). I'm sorry, I thought it KICKED @$$! And I KNEW I recognized Heihachi's actor! He was the main evil guy in Mortal Kombat. He plays a good evil main bad guy in fighting movies.

more movies

I finished Predators last night before I went to bed. I thought it was kind of amazing how the slender artistic guy who starred in “The Pianist” Adrien Brody could become a hard-nosed deep-voiced gunman semi-villain. I like it. What versatility! I just became a fan. Alice Braga, the leading actress, was great, too. There was a plot twist, er a few, actually, that I totally didn’t see coming, and kept it really interesting.

Today, I watched “Daybreakers” which was freaking sweet. I seem to be watching a lot of vampire/werewolf movies lately. Basically, 80% of the population becomes vampires and due to lack of human blood, people are ‘blood deprived’ and turn into monsters. What do you do? :O Fascinating…

I’m in the middle of “Choke” with Rickson Gracie.

Work tomorrow.
