Watching anime

Hey, we're actually not going to whine about translating Noragami today! In fact, we edited almost two whole chapters' worth of text! It was hard, but nothing really worth posting on LiveJournal about. Maybe because Kazuma wasn't in any of the part we edited.

Seriously, though, Noragami is a lot of fun and we love it. It's just also very challenging, which is something we love and hate at the same time. It also makes us think we should watch more American TV. Hulu recently got all of Third Rock from the Sun...hmmm... On the other hand, they don't exactly talk like normal people in that...which might be exactly why it's helpful. Hmmm...

Anyway, since all the TV shows we follow are in reruns, we've been watching a lot of anime. ...Or actually, we've been watching a lot of anime because that's what we do. Recently, we finally decided it was time to watch Magi: The Kingdom of Magic (aka Magi 2), and once we started it became the main thing we were interested in doing. But it can be so! violent! Oh my goodness, last night we watched the episode where Alibaba fights the giant ape...only technically we didn't "watch" it, because we were so busy covering our eyes and whimpering for them to make it stop. We're pretty squeamish about blood and stuff.

We're also watching Sword Art Online. After Anime Expo, where it seemed like everybody was talking about it and cosplaying Kirito or Asuna, or possibly even random SAO players, come to think of it (there were people in "generic fantasy video game" costumes), we figured it would be good to educate ourselves. We also figured we needed to start exercising regularly, so we put those two thoughts together and decided to make time every day or so (usually "or so") to exercise while watching Sword Art Online.

Today I'm thankful for yummy cocoa peanuts, making good progress on Noragami today, 24-hour Guilt Up Time at Kingdom Hearts [chi], today being a little cooler than yesterday, and getting to watch lots of Magi last night.
