The first reaction I had when I opened my email and my blog was….. “The fu##”
My email had 300+ unread messages. The mail capacity in animesuki was 100% full. And some emo going wild in BT.
Never thought it would turn like this for playing dead for 2 months. I didn’t access any of my accounts during those time since I kinda predicted how it would turn out. Though I have been posting few messages on a-s.
I never thought there would be so much comments.
Well…I did say I would get back to translation in October so….yeah. I was supposed to have spare time in October if only I finished the piles of work I could have done in September. But…I’m one of those lazy guys who leaves everything till the last minute. Which I am regretting since I had to finish off all those works within short time (I seriously had that coming).
I would be lying if I said that I didn’t have access to the internet. I mean I need to watch this seasons anime after all (fate, GBF Try, G no Reco, rape-ange, and more).
And man. The hobby I started since middle of 2014 had me hooked. That hobby is GDC (Gundam Duel Company) and it easily stole more than $1000 dollars from me. I spent basically 99% of my time on the internet on it. Because of the missions and conquests…
And the world tournament is coming up in less than 2 weeks… I need to have everything ready by then. I need to aim for the top!
For those interested and still don’t know about it, go here:
Making your account is free and you get free rental cards. Though you won’t get anywhere unless you actually buy loads of booster boxes which costs heaps…
So far two booster boxes have been released. GNDC01 and GNDC02. The rarity of cards are rated from R1 to R6. R1 being the lowest and R6 being the best.
So R1 = common, R2 = uncommon, R3 = rare, R4 = super rare, R5 = Ultra rare, R6 = Ultra special rare.
I ended up buying 6 booster boxes for both booster box 1 and 2. And then traded if I had duplicate copies and also bought single cards. The rarest card, R6, would cost between $60 to $100.
Getting an R6 from a booster box would be in 1 in 2 chance. So you would have to buy R6 as a single card and cry over how much you spent on it. Booster box 01 was a torture. You either get one R6, one R5, and two R4 OR one R5 and three R4 in a booster box. Getting the later would make you cry and seeing someone getting the later would make you laugh your ass off.
Though the company fixed 02 by giving you another R5 if you didn’t get a R6.
I remember one kid who bought the booster box 02 on the first day and sat with my group. Me and my mates bought several booster boxes and were shouting out every time we got an R6. The kid was in a happy-mode when he bought his booster box and sat next to us. But after he realised he got the shitty booster box which didn’t have R6….he walked away in silence. I actually felt sorry for that kid. The happy kid who suddenly became dark and gloomy…
I probably should buy a whole carton (12 booster boxes) when GNDC03 comes out. It’s guaranteed that I would get all the cards in one-go. I seriously hope they introduce series like Gundam Wing, Gundam X and G Gundam in the future. Zeta Gundam, and Justice Gundam are pretty much revealed to appear in the next booster box. Zeta Gundam…..one of the best Gundam ever. Thinking of getting my hand on it makes me drool. It will definitely be a R6 card.
And the physical copies of the cards, especially R6 and R5, looks magnificent. Some people buys them as collection.
Though any gundam-fans should be playing it. If you aren’t, then you are NO gundam-fan!
Don’t play homo-game like kancolle! Play GDC!
All those work pretty much killed my brain. So GDC was more souce of life when I was doing my work. Organising your troop while doing your work. Nice~.
Well, I was so busy with GDC that I haven’t touched LN for so long. I’m serious. I haven’t any LN for more than two months. I just read encore v2 a week ago. But before that…nothing. I totally forgot that I was fan-translating dxd (and encore).
And what other LN was I reading again? I seriously forgot.
The excuse I was originally going to use for the progress of volume 18 was: “Volume 18 takes place in X-mas. So I wanted to release around then since it would be fitting”.
Though anyone could tell that would be BS. I think volume 19 takes place in New Year. Or am I wrong? Oh well.
Damn. Now I have to finish 4 volumes of LN by end of this year. Dxd v18, dxd v19, encore v1, and encore v2. What have I gotten myself into… Lucky another group is doing altina. Now I can totally forget about it. Lalalalah.
And man. It’s said that you can get a bj from a girl if you took her to a broadway show (info taken from south park). But that was bs… it didn’t happen… Wasted hundred bucks on nothing. I ended up going to the brothel after that due to the hole in my heart.
Where was I again? I’ve been talking about gdc for the whole time…
Oh yeah. I will get back to translation from 21st of November. I’m serious this time since that’s when my holiday starts and when my final submission is. The GDC world tournament would start from 13th of November and end in early December. So I will translate as I play. I will continue with Dxd first since everyone wants that over encore (though encore is awesome). I haven’t read all the emails and comments yet. Maybe I shouldn’t open it….
Anyway, I will be back on 21st.
