ED: Cinderella Step | Sunday Salutations

Happy Sunday everyone!! 😀 I hope you all had a good weekend and are ready to start the work week.

This week’s ED is rather different as, I haven’t even seen the anime.  You’re probably wondering how I even found the ED to begin with if I haven’t seen it. But, I’ll tell you a little secret, I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts lately and ran across a podcast that did featured seasonal op/ed’s. I kept looping this part of the podcast because I was so so addicted to it.

“I’ll give up….I’ll never give up”

This weeks OP comes from Kuzu no Honkai (Scum’s Wish). The title of this weeks post is the English translation of one of the lines in the chorus of the song. I find this song catchy and after reading the translated english lyrics, the more of a fan I’ve become!

Title: “Uso no Hibana (嘘の火花)” | Artist: 96neko | Show: Kuzu no Honkai

When I looked up the name of the song on MyAnimeList, I was shocked by some of the negative reviews this show has gotten considering it’s still trying to establish character’s and complex relationships, I don’t think it’s fair that they’re judging it solely based on 1 or 2 episodes. But heck who am I to complain honestly, to each their own, and for all I know they could just be a bunch of internet trolls that are just unhappy with everything..maybe elitest types? Anyways, that was just an obvservation.

Moving on, this past week has been pretty good. It was payday, and I promised myself (since my raise kicked in) that I would finally get my PSVita, and I did. I’ve been GameStop hopping since I bought it looking for interesting games. So far I’ve picked up:

  •  Persona 4 Golden: Now, I’ve heard tons of great things about this particular game, so I decided to pick it up. At this particular GameStop, I found myself face-to-face with a Nanbaka character. He had pink/orange hair, and red nail polish. Now I’m trying to remember if I saw him wearing stripes…

  • Child of Light: I liked the art style and it looked to have good ratings so I think I’m going to give it a try
  • MuramasaThe guy at gamestop told me the art style was an awesome effect of 2D hand drawn graphics and interesting gameplay – kind of sold me on art style so I decided to pick it up.
  • Corpse Party:  Now, this is of the horror genre, and I’m not much of a horror fan….but I was interested in it.. so we’ll see how that goes…?

I had gone to the closest GameStop by my house in hopes to find the two otome games I had seen there the last time I had been browsing a couple of weeks ago (Code:Realize & Norn9) but alas to my disappointment they were not there. *sigh* Now I’m on the precipice of having to decide if I want to go digital with some of the games and invest in another memory card.

I also celebrated my niece’s first birthday! She’s the daughter of my BFF’s from high school. I had offered her help a few weeks ago, and she was ecstatic since I appeared to be the only one to offer.  But I had fun, she put me in charge of decorating the space. She gave me her vision and he ideas, and I just ran with it while she did other things.  It was a success, and a great time to catch up with my HS group, since I missed out on the last get together with them. Ah! I can’t believe I’m at that age where having kids is a thing. I’m not ready to be a full-on adult yet! I’m forever a kid at heart! Also, I was putting together an awesome birthday gift for the little girl: “Baby’s First Library”. I bought a bunch of books, a blanket and a Mickey Mouse dressed in his wizard robes to put into a basket. Unfortunately, amazon prime failed in delivering my books on time…*sigh* So I’ll have to wait a bit to finalize it-maybe I’ll post a photo of it when I’m done.

Now I’ve started to write all my posts for the week and hope to schedule all of them before th end of the weekend. Yay productivity!! Anyways, I had quite the busy week it seems, how was everyone’s week? What are your plans for this coming week?
