Anime Relations: Last Exile, Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu, Claymore, Shigurui
So, in short, I've been dead for quite some time. You can blame that on a failing hard drive. For about a month and a half I had no internet, and there was no way I was going to call up HP support or take the computer to Best Buy. At most, they'd just tell me to buy a new computer.
Fortunately, a few friends were able to help me out. I can easily work my way around an operating system, but I don't know anything about the hardware. Anyway, it didn't take them long to figure out that there was a problem with the hard drive. Unfortunately, however, my hard drive could not be salvaged. So, what'd I lose? Nearly 500 GBs of data. You know, the usual:

-thousands of pictures
-music
-hours of porn
-most of the stuff I did for the [as] boards, including all my Code Geass icons(EUPHIE!)
-anime and videos(my Legend of the Galactic Heroes collection, damn it!)
-manga(I was currently reading Shin Angyo Onshi)
-saved websites and various documents
-etc.

I was pissed for a while, but in the end, it's really my fault. Lesson learned: back up all your data, always. During the downtime, as far as anime is concerned, I did take full advantage of Netflix. There were three series, in particular, that blew me away:





Wow, what a show. Impeccable direction, monstrous characters, unbelievably dark(literally, too!), and one of the best rivalries I've seen.





The ending could've been a little better, sure, but, wow! Gonzo at its best! Why did it take me so long to watch this? I loved Claus and Lavie, and the pure and innocent dream of flying in the sky always gets to me.





Again, what took me so long to watch this?! An all-female cast without fanservice( I AM SHOCKED), Teresa, Ophelia, and a shonen done right:
"Don't worry, we'll survive this fight! We'll make it!"
"Hi, I'm a lion and now I'm going to kill most of you." O_O!!!
More shonen should be like Claymore, definitely.




All that being said, I'm finally caught up on my currently watching list, and I even had some time to watch some older series. With a new hard drive and Windows 7, I'm back and hopefully more active than before. MAL seems to have stopped lagging too. That's a good thing.
I lost a lot of precious things, but gotta move on. In a way, my experience with the hard drive was like a microcosm of life. lolDEEP.

On that note, time to redownload Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

See ya around the site.
