A short summer playlist and loots from September…

Time really flies by fast these days. 

It has already been 11 weeks since I was enlisted and am currently beginning my BMT phase. Tekong really changed my perspective on time. Throwing a live grenade felt so surreal and firing live rounds with a rifle feels absolutely different than shooting in game. Army really lets you experience interesting things and with Field Camp in a few weeks, I am quite nervous and at the same time looking forward to it.

Anyway, without further ado. Here’s my short summer playlist that was due three weeks ago (sorry).

The first song on the list is “Million Clouds”, the opening from Amanchu! I really love this song. It is calming to listen to where I can’t help but close my eyes as I listen to the song and let the music slowly drift me into a tranquil state. The drums and quicken pace in the second part of the song really stands out where it makes it seem as though a brand new day is arriving.

The next song is the opening from Fate/Kaleid liner PRISMAILLYA 3rei!! “Asterism” by the ever famous Choucho. I don’t know how many times I have said this but I absolutely love her voice. The rhythm of the song really keeps my finger busy tapping to it and as you get to the chorus, it builds it up slowly before it then drops and transits to the chorus. The song is highly reminiscing of the previous songs from this series and I really do like it.

Following that is from a movie that came out during the month of August but I could only watch it during September. 

Kimi no Na wa with its theme song “Zen Zen Zense” by RADWIMPS. I instantly love the song when it was played in the movie. My fingers were tapping like crazy as I tried my best to play out the song. It sorts of reminds me of “Yasashisa no Riyuu” Hyouka’s opening at some parts of the song.

The last two songs are the second opening and ending from the anime Macross Delta, ”Zettai Reidou θ Novatic” and “Hametsu no Junjou” respectively. I consider these two songs as the best for my Top 5 as I have replayed them too many times on my phone and in the car’s speakers. I really love how each of their voices compliments each other either when they sing together or for their separate parts. I would really love to go for their concert if they had one. If you were to ask me to choose either of them to put as my top for this season, I would say the ending. I absolutely love how Mikumo sounds like in the chorus and yes, I know there’s a Mikumo solo version for it.

In the last few days of September, I spoiled my Otaku self a bit by buying a few figurines. The two of the three are from the Monogatari series.

Hachikuji Mayoi with her huge backpack and Yotsugi Ononoki with her peace pose, which I find absolutely adorable (even with her straight face). The last figure I bought is Nagato from Kantai Collection.

She comes with her equipment, which was in a separate box, where it leaves me wondering how can she carry its weight. I really shouldn't underestimate the power of one of The Big Seven. So now in my collection of figurines I have three characters from the Monogatari series, which are Shinobu, and the two mentioned above, if I’m including a chibi Karen then it’ll be four, a nendroid Shimakaze, scale figure of Mutsuki and the Nagato mentioned above from Kantai Collection. Following that is Izayoi Sakuya from Touhou Project, BRS from Black Rock Shooter, a Hatsune Miku Append figma and Snow Bell nendroid, Mami and Homura from Madoka Magica. A Saber Nero nendroid, Sakamoto Mio Armor Girls Project, an Angela Balzac chibi and finally a Gundam.

As you can already tell, I am not a frequent buyer and certainly not a collector so my figures won’t be as much your average otaku. I’m sorry. I’m setting aside and saving up some money for other things in the future like going to a university, travelling abroad and by any chance I require the money desperately for various reasons.

Well, it’s time to turn in for the night. My cough medicine should be kicking in any moment now.

Mata ne~
