Stuff about stuff

I'm so glad Uniqlo already shipped our Heattech order. I'm soooo coooooooold! (It's 65 degrees out. I know it's pathetic.)

Anyway, we had something to say about the latest episode of Noragami... What was it again? Right. You can't translate "fast ticket" to "fast pass" because Fastpass is trademarked. Of course, it's possible that they could get away with it anyway, by putting the space there (like why the Tinker Bell movies spell her name as two words; I seem to remember reading somewhere that that was for copyright reasons), or with fair use laws or something. But Tokyo Disneyland uses fastpasses just like American Disneyland, so there's a reason they're called fast tickets in Capyper Land. And why in the Say I Love You version they're called speed passes. But the sad thing is, that episode condensed all the super awesome Capyper Land stuff into just one episode, and took out all the best parts! There was no posing on the drop for Splash Slider! Why!? Whyyyyyyy!?

But enough about that. We talk aaaaalll about it in our review of Noragami 8, which review will be released on Wednesday. As for volume eight itself, it's in stores now! Pick yours up today! (Or, if you're not reading this until after the bookstore closed or on Sunday, pick yours up on Monday!)

Right, I had something else I've been wanting to talk about, too, and that! is UQ Holder!. The other day, we actually read a review of one of the print graphic novels, and we were like, "Whoa, people are actually reviewing the series." There is one blog that reviews it every week when a new chapter goes up on Crunchyroll, and we always go into it knowing someone (the reviewer, a commenter) is going to say something to make us sigh in exasperation, but we read it every week anyway because we're desperate for validation or something.

But the point is, everyone seems to hate the main character, Tota Konoe, except for some people who seem to be mostly indifferent, and that bums us out, because we think Tota is pretty awesome. So I wanted to come onto LJ and talk about what makes him a good main character, and not a stupid one.

Today I'm thankful for getting a shipping confirmation from Uniqlo, having time to practice the piano today, getting most of our to-do list done by now (we still have to exercise), getting to try new Townhouse Focaccia crackers (they're a little too intense), and Tota Konoe.
