I just got a bunch of stuff from my friend becuase she doesn't really need it anymore. There is this one interactive DVD called Hourglass of Summer that she gave me that I'm really hooked on. It's basically about a high school boy named Makimura Kotaro who one day slips out of time and winds up in the future at the opening ceremony of his school, but things are different. The principal usually give a short story at the ceremony, but it's unusually long that day. In his confusion, Kotaro manages to hear that the girl he had been fawning over before the summer break died in an accident. So it's up to him (you) to find out what happened and how to stop the awful incident from occurring.
I think it's one of those games that was made for guys who like to see their ideal girl because there are very few guys in it and a lot of very pretty girls. Still, I've been hooked just hearing the way that Kotaro respond to each situation you put him through. There were some pretty tough choices I had to make and at first, I came up with the bad ending, but after going through it again and correcting the mistakes I made, I got a better ending. This DVD/Game is very interesting, but also very long, so if you plan to play it, be prepared to set aside the whole day for it (Or leave your PS2 running all night). That is beacuse there is no way to save your progress or even go back to the scene you were previously at. Still, if you're willing to take the risk, I'd give this interactive DVD a 9 out of 10.
I can't say I know where my friend got it, or how much it costs, but I'm sure you could order it online if you wanted to. I could do more research if anyone was interested. Here's a picture of the cover:
I'd like to find more games/DVDs like this. It's very cute. =^^= If anyone knows of anything like that, send me a pm. I'd be very appreciative.
I've decided to move the deadline to give any latecomers a better chance at getting an entry in on time. Mostly I'm doing this because I thought some people might not have had a chance to come online lately. Also, Contests is putting my info on Contests World, so maybe a few other people will come along because of that. The new deadline is:
Saturday, June 7
I hope that many people participate and also, please tell a friend so that there can be a healthy competition. For more information, check the poast below, the fanart section under "Full-Kitty-Love contest," or one of my three mangas on the page regarding the contest. If you still have questions, please feel free to pm me. Until then! *poofs*
I am thinking of holding a fanart contest for all three of my manga series (Fear to Love, Full Curse, and Kitty Days). Though they are not all as far along as others. I thought I do a little something to generate interest and have some fun. Basically, the contest is that you'll draw your favorite character from one of the three series (or two or all three if you like!) doing whatever it is that inspires you (Of course, let's keep it within the acceptable limits here at theO... =>.>=). You may enter up to three entries per series (only if you want to do that many... it's just a ceiling =^_^=). So that I know, please put "Kitty K.O.'s contest" or "Kitty K.O." as a tag, so that I can find them. One first prize winner and a runner up for each series will be chosen (Of course, if there are no entries for a series, it will sadly have be to un-included) First-prize winners will get a full-color artwork of anything they request (since I'll be posting it on theO, please keep it rated theO... though I wouldn't mind drawing something a little more risque =^w^=). Runner-ups will get a sketch of anything they wish. I did make bookmarks for Kitty Days, but since no one bought any, I'll probably throw in a complimentary bookmark (I have Rei, Sai, Miu, and Keri with the three kittens) of the winner(s)' choosing. I'll put up an official fanart to further announce the start of the contest. Of course, if you wanna get a leg up now, that's good too. Most likely, it'll start next week and end at the end of the following week.
Hope to hear from those who want to participate. Please comment if you think it's a good idea and would like to participate. Tell anybody else you know here so that we can have a decently sized contest. I will not start the contest if not enough people are interested. Please and thank you. (I probably will draw the contest announcement page, just in case)
I found out that it is a large possibility that the CGT (for those who don't know, that's "Computer Graphics Technology") program is on the verge of being dumped. Meaning that someone like me, a graphic design major, will also be dumped. I was just getting used to college and now this goes and happens! *pfft* I suggested to my mother about switching my major to art, and she said, "Are you kidding? How many jobs out there do you know that are hiring art majors?" *sigh* I'm just doing my best with what little bit I know about the world. I think the real world loves me, because it seems to be trying to pull me closer to it. I'd feel differently if the real world were Hyde or Gackt. Man... well, I have a slight backup plan, but I'm not going to rant about it at the risk of couting my chickens before they hatch. Mmm... chicken...
Well, I didn't really meet the guy I had in mind, but one of my classmates did come up and talk to me out of the blue. Well, I gotta go to class. Laterz. =^^=
Well, my bf and I are no longer dating, but we are still keeping in contact. It feels kind of weird to be single again... like, now I'm living a WHOLE other life. Hm...
I got an opportunity to get my manga published. I was really excited. Unfortunately, it's rather expensive, so I can't do anything. I'ma bit disappointed, because the guy I was talking to was called Yanni, and he had a cat. I thought he sounded really nice. =^^= He said my artwork was really good. But here's the thing... this publishing company is not specializing in manga. Yanni'd never even heard of manga before, so when I sent him a page of Kitty Days, he went "Oh, it's a comic strip!" Lol. Well, he was fun to talk to while it lasted. Not like I'd ever meet the guy, because the company is in Philadelphia. *sigh* I don't get that lucky. Nothing out of a romantic manga has ever happened to me, at least not anything out of the ordinary like meeting someone far away and then getting together. Ahaha =^_^;= I'm rambling. I guess it was just a simple, quick, over-the-phone infatuation. Lol I shouldn't get those... Still...
I was able to download episodes 1-3 of GinTama. Yay! It's so funny! I love GinTama! =^^= I can't wait to get the next group of episodes! *humming the Fuusen Gum kuchakucha ending theme* Lol I think that song is cute. =^_^=
Well, I'll rant more some other time. Catch ya later. =^_~=
