How are those New Year resolutions coming along? Hope you enjoyed the late night celebrations where you were. Over here my neighbourhood was shooting up fireworks everywhere after the countdown on TV then everyone walked outside, leaving their doors open for the new year and cheering.
It's going to be a few days holiday over in Japan, people will be going to temples during O-Shougatsu (New Year's Day). Greeting cards known as Nengajo (年賀状) are also given out to friends too which has a simple message such as "Akemashite Omedetou!" or the formal Kanji "Nenga Shinnen", both meaning "Happy New Year!"
Usually they're pre-paid postcards that start off blank and while most of the people I know hand decorate them for the extra sincere touch, there are people who do design and print them off from their computers. They are then put into a special postbox before the New Year is here and are delivered by the post office on the day.
So since it's a New Year, I've decided to switch to a new layout. I actually want to design my own or at least mod one of the existing themes but, I can't seem to do that with the options this Wordpress account offers. Until I get my own domain space, this will have to do.
And the following are the best works of 2007 in my opinion. For movies, I have taken live-action ones into consideration too, not just Anime. I haven't listed any Anime series because I think the only recent series I watched for this year is Code Geass... Others I've been watching were old classics such as the entire City Hunter series. I did watch a bit of Death Note but, that got boring after a while since I knew what was going to happen from the Manga. So, not really enough shows to select from.
Game of the Year
Monster Hunter Portable 2nd
Movie of the Year
5 Centimeters per Second
The Girl who Leapt Through Time
Initial D's "Blazin' Beat" has been ringing through my head today for some reason so I've set that on loop on my player. Makes me want to re-watch the show again. Well, hope there's an even better line-up of goodies this year! Have a good day!
