Car shoot. Aria the Origination. About page done.
Helped some friends do a shoot of their cars last night. Night shots are a killer for a noobie. Luckily, I manage to salvage some of it to justify making them stand around waiting for me till 2am in the morning. -.-”
While processing this batch of photo’s, I learned how to leave text watermarks on Adobe Lightroom processed photos. Didn’t know it was that easy. *facepalms*
So readers can pretty much expect all my shots to be watermarked from now on. Not that it really matters right? :p

Having no plans today, I finally took the time to finish of Aria: The Origination. That anime is s.l.o.w.
To the point it’s borderline boring. First 3 episodes, I fell asleep. Another 3 episodes, I fell asleep again. Lol!
It’s been a while since I took such a long time to finish off a 13 episodes title.
But wait, it was ONLY borderline boring. It never crossed the line.
Me falling asleep? That’s just because I find the anime totally dreamy. The storytelling, the animation, the water passageway and the boats, the characters, the music, everything is just so gentle.
Love the ending theme!
Kin no Nami Sen no Nami by Akino Arai
Despite missing the first 2 season, I can really see the somewhat mysterious charm behind the Aria titles. It bears resemblance to what seem like a perfect world; Which really does occasionally provides a good getaway.
I’d like to say, don’t let the 4-Stars throw you off. I’m not making it up when I say there’s a mysteriously charm about Aria that I’d really like you guys to check out. Despite having the lamest lines, the things they say in the anime really feels like it reaches out to you. Touching indeed. It’s something I really like viewers to try out first hand before deciding on the anime.
Now can someone explain to me why all the Presidents of the companies are cats? Or, by my definition, are they aliens instead?
Aria the Origination
A little off topic, yet related to my Aria impression above. I’ve actually watch Aria and dropped it two times. When it was first released, I watch an episode, found it boring and dropped it. The second time was a little later when Aria seemed to be making a huh-hah around anime reviews. I just had to try it again seeing why everyone seemed to be recommending it. Still, I found it boring and dropped it.
This time being the third time I re-watched Aria the Origination. It is obvious that my taste in animes have definitely changed. Aria, Aoi Hana, Hatsukoi Lmited, these are all titles I would never even try. Let alone complete. The only anime I’d touch would have blades, transformation sequences, or lots of blood.
It was having started Anime3R that I decided to give every anime genre a go. Having said that, I’d say I REALLY got exposed to animes just this year…
Am still looking forward to many years to come… Lol!
Finally did my about page. Probably one of the shortest around the blogosphere. Always known that I looked like a dork, but just found out I sound like one too. Lol!
