So I didn't sell some of my plush dolls at the last convention I went to so I've listed them on my etsy store. Maybe there's a plush doll you like there? Well here's the link to my Etsy Store

So I'm gonna be going to Castle Point Anime Convention 2011! It's in Hoboken NJ.

    I'll be selling the usual items and also.. plushies! I've been making a lot of plushies lately, I have a couple up for sale in my etsy shop. If you take a look, you can get an idea of what kinds of plushies I will have for sale. Anime characters, game characters, and some original plushies as well.

     I will post more updates as the convention draws closer and hopefully I will be able to assess the popularity of the plush dolls! I also need to post pics from comic con in NYC lol get around to it eventually

Japanese anyone? Top 5 websites

Is anyone out there learning Japanese?? I assume a lot of people are. I know I am studying Japanese, sometimes I uh, skip some study sessions, but I'm learnin alright??

   Anyway, for anyone that is studying Japanese, or even wants to start studying, here's one of those top w/e lists.

    This site is, well in the words of Koichi Tofugu, flashcards on crack. It's got a ton of stuff you can learn but you're just here for the Japanese right?
  First you learn some words, then you review the words. They have a dictation option as well that has a native speaker talk and then you have to type out what they said by ear. It's really good listening practice. They also have a mini game you can play to practice and you can make a list of vocabulary words you want to study!

#2: Lang-8

    This site is really great for solidifying stuff you've learned and writing practice. You write journal entries in the language you're studying (I assume Japanese if you're reading this) and then native speakers correct your mistakes. You can also correct other people's journal's who are learning your native language. There's nothing better than having a native speaker talk to you about the language!


     This site is a lifesaver for looking up kanji or other words. You guessed it, it's an online dictionary and it's really simple and easy to use which is always a plus.

#4: Tae Kim's Guide to Japanese

     Yes it's literally a guide to Japanese. Probably the closest thing you'll get to an online textbook (that's free). It explains pretty much everything about grammar and it even has practice exercises! Definitely look here if you need something explained.


    This site is similar to Tae Kim's guide, it's got a lot of grammar explained and the best part is probably the quiz's they have on there so go check it out!

That's all for now! seeya!

Suikoden Review!

      Hey all, I just played the RPG Suikoden!

Suikoden is a role playing game. You play as a kid with an imperial general for a father. When his dad goes up north (I think) you begin running errands for the empire. But what happens when a visit to a mysterious mage turns you into a liberation army leader??

   I liked Suikoden mostly because I love to play RPGs! I started a bit slow at the beginning but once I picked it up again after a week or so I couldn't put it back down!

 I liked this game because I thought it was pretty fast paced. The story goes along nicely, and there's still extra things you can do before progressing with the storyline as well! side quests if you will, since we all know RPGs would be bad without them!

     I also didn't think that the game was too hard or too easy, just right for someone like me. If a game is too easy you get bored, and if it's too hard, well be prepared to buy a new controller after chucking it against a wall..

    The game was also a decent length. I did not feel as if there should have been something more when I beat the final boss and I didn't think the game was dragged out too much.

  Something else I found interesting about it was the battles.. The game centers around war and fighting like most RPGs do, and so some of the battles were between large armies. You get an army and can control what they do, while the other side's tactics will be somewhat unpredictable. you know, to keep it interesting.

     Another cool thing about Suikoden is that you don't get magic per-see, you get items called runes. You attach the rune to a character, and then based on that character's stats, they get a bunch of spells to use in the battles! I thought that was a new concept to the magic thing :)

   Now for negatives about the game..
       hmm I think the only negative things I have to say are that some of the characters impose themselves on you. It's cool if it's part of the storyline and they gotta go in your party for a little while, but some of them are kind of annoying. Especially if you gotta have a level 1 guy in your party cuz he sucks and you never trained him, while the rest of your party is oh say, level 45.. yeah, annoying.
  Another annoying thing was the random battles. I know I know, random battles are an essential part of RPGs and leveling up!! I know, and that's ok. But sometimes in the game the random battles were a little too random. Like, a ton of monsters showing up every 5 seconds when you don't want to fight or are just tryin to get somewhere. and then, barely any monsters when you're actually trying to level up or get money.. yeah, annoying.

  Overall the game was cool, it has an interesting storyline with plenty of unpredictable twists! The characters have cool designs and there's pretty much a character for everyone. The battle systems are unique to other RPGs and there's plenty of stuff to do before progressing in the story. Also the graphics and music are great :)

 Over all I give Suikoden a.... 4/5!
