I was going to do only one post today but apparently my iPad post got so big that I decided to let it be separate. This post will be about what I will be doing during my busy April.

This month is torturing me with new animes coming out left and right. I’m tempted to watch them all but being a college student and all, I need to concentrate more on school and looking for a summer job. Summer break is the perfect time when I don’t need to put all my time into school so then is when I will do some major anime watching. I’m doing posts that are time sensitive, or that is happening soon. I can hold off on doing anime posts, though the only reason why I did a couple recently is because I watched them a while ago and I don’t want to forget things that I want to share with my readers.

I usually only watch one anime at a time so that I can remember most of the details of the show, though with some new ones coming out such as K-On!! (Second season) and Angel Beats! I can’t help but watch both at the same time. I just hope it doesn’t affect the quality of my posts. Also on my increasing watch list is Chinka, Danny Choo’s new anime and another anime that he just announced that he watches that looks interesting, Heroman, though I have yet to see the first episode to see if I truly want to watch it.


Apple iPad Video Display

My Piano Melodies Series video shown on the Apple iPad.

Also on my to do list is working on my next Piano Melodies Series video due out on May 5th. I don’t know why I’m sticking to releasing every two months on the 5th of the month but somehow I feel obliged to do so. Last week was my spring break so I used the time to do a lot of computer work like cathcing up on posts and organizing data and uploading photos to my Flickr. I got a good amount done but am always behind in terms of posts I want to do, especially on my other three blogs. The upcoming Piano Melodies Video will be Random tunes from various animes and games. From working on this first Random PMS video, I’ve been finding more music that I plan to do so it seems that the rest of the year is going to be planned out soon for the series. Also I’ve been taking requests for music meodies for me to do. It gives me a challenge because usually all the music I choose is quite easy, it points me to new animes such as Baka to Test to Shoukanju, and it pleases me and my fans. If you want any tune’s melody played, whether it be from an anime, VG, or general music, you can send me a message and I will consider it when I start to run out of ideas (whenever that will be). I may even release PMS videos sooner if I have the time to do a lot of videos.


Peace Pagoda

The Peace Pagoda at San Francisco's Japantown. I took this during the 2009 Sakura Matsuri.

What I’m really looking forward to is the Cherry Blossom Festival (Sakura Matsuri) in San Francisco’s Japantown. Went last year and it was fun, though I wasn’t blogging or part of any Japan/Otaku group. I remember it happened to be hot on the final day of the festival and it was so crouded with people and cosplayers. The cosplayers weren’t even that great. This year will be better because I’m planning to go with friends and take loads of pictures for Flickr and my blog. It runs for two weekends when the Sakura are at full bloom, April 10,11 and 17,18. On the 10th I’m planning to look out for DC.com people who organized a meeting on figure.fm; they will be holding a DC.com logo flag. It will be intresting to meet others from the DC.com community. Look forward to my post of the 2010 San Francisco Sakura Matsuri!


Wow! Writing two posts in a day, both long too. I’m tired but I still have to do homework… :_(

coolmikeol - April 7, 2010

Have yet to still watch the first episode of Heroman so I’m not sure if I will watch the whole series, it just looks interesting from the PV.

I’m not getting the iPad but all my friends thinks I am since I wrote that post. I just went to my local Apple store to take a look at it.

Thanks about the Sakura picture!
