Hello 2017!

Last post is almost 5 years old. Still thinking about going back to blogging. After all, it only served as a personal diary. Am I still my old self? Probably - an ambivert, nevertheless still gaming. Huge things are coming my way this year. First and foremost, marriage. Some people may say it's long overdue, but I believe that the right time does come. Not from some intergalactic force or a higher one, but from two people agreeing that it's about time. Selective existentialism. Anyway, happy new year!

Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Movie

The much anticipated Rurouni Kenshin movie made its way to Philippines theaters on December 5, 2012. Thousands of fans have already been waiting for this to finally happen as the screening date constantly got pushed to later dates for months. And damn, it was worth the wait.

Being a Samurai X fan since high school, the movie was like a dream come true. Every detail of the movie feels like it was freshly grabbed right from the anime itself. No fan will be disappointed with the movie since you will not be expecting any mistakes that Hollywood usually makes with their own rendition of popular animes/games.

The actors were able to relive their characters the way we watched it in the series. Actor Takeru Sato was surely perfect for the role. From being the bloodthirsty Battousai the Slasher to the kind and sweet wanderer Kenshin Himura, he totally nailed it.

The DVD becomes available on December 26th. So if you haven't watched the movie yet (you can catch it on SM Cinemas til the 19th), be sure to watch it right away! Or, get the DVD at least. ;)

Finally Got My Pottermore Email

After several weeks of waiting, I finally got my third letter from Pottermore. The one stating that my account is finally ready and I can enter the site. Pottermore is set to open to all on October but there are a few who can enter it earlier during the beta phase.

I quickly logged in and explored the site. There are still a lot of changes to be done. I also took part in making a few suggestions, some already voiced out by other students.

Chapter to chapter I viewed all the stories and awesome artworks, when finally I got to the sorting hat. I was excited and nervous as to where the hat will put me. I have been believing I'm in Gryffindor for 10 years. So here I was, answering all the questions truthfully and the results came out. RAVENCLAW!
I was lost for words! Why oh why did I got sorted to Ravenclaw? The house where they say only the wittiest and brightest witches and wizards come from. Shocked, I continued anyway. If the sorting hat put me there, then I just let it be.

I explored further and began practicing on potions and spells. They weren't that easy haha. Anyways, Pottermore is a great site but I know it'll be greater when it opens in October. ;)

As the last Harry Potter film is nearing its release date, fans from around the world have been given something new to look forward to. When owls started appearing on the JKR Announces Youtube channel, people patiently awaited the day the video is released. Opinions were expressed among millions of fans as to what it might be. Some said that it can be an online game or another book. J.K. Rowling announced on June 23, 2011, her newest project called Pottermore.

She shares that it will a new and exciting way to enjoy online reading, community interaction and even discovering HP secrets she has kept throughout the years. There is nothing more that I can say about it since the announcement appears a little vague to me. But one thing's for sure, it will be something worth waiting for.

If you want to join Pottermore, you can submit your emails as early as today and come back on July 31, 2011 to know if you can be part of the group to experience it earlier than the rest. Official opening of the whole site is said to take place on October.
