54 Nights and Still the Vampires Wake

Tensions have been growing everywhere in this manga I don’t even know where to begin any more.

Sagakure-san has been scanlating the chapters as soon as she gets her copy of Lala, so you can bet I’ve been stalking her quite a lot. She makes pretty art as well, although some themes may not be to everyone’s tastes.

As far as the story has been developing so far, there’s a lot of tension amongst the fans trying to guess who the main protagonist, Yuuki, ends up with. She did say in the 52nd Chapter that she now knows the path which she should walk on (by Kaname’s side), but she’s obviously still longing for Zero, even though he openly rejected her in the recent chapter.

Personally, I like Kaname a lot more than Zero. I find his story a lot sadder, and I feel very bad for him that the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with is longing for another guy. I’m actually beginning to hate Yuuki for being that way. She has to decide who she really loves and tell them so that one or the other can move on.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind whoever it is that she ends up with, as long as she decides soon so that she’d stop torturing them so much. It’s annoying me that she said she has always loved Kaname and yet keeps thinking about Zero now that she’s with Kaname.

It’s too selfish. Even for a shoujo manga. But I still follow the series anyway. –_-;;;

The next chapter’s teaser mentioned something gruesome is going to happen. Is it bad that the only thing I’m interested in finding out is the character relationships? I don’t know… But I would love to see the ending of this series so I can stop angsting about it already!

1000 Paper Cranes: Wishing for a Better Philippine Government

yellow paper crane

Would it be wishful thinking to hope for a better government and clean, truthful, fair elections in the Philippines this 2010?

Frankly, I don't know. I'm not even sure I'll be in this country by the time the elections begin, but that doesn't mean I can't give my support to the Philippine Paper Crane Project.

I've always dreamed the Philippines could be one of the greatest countries the world has ever seen. I mean, we had the first female president in Asia, and we stopped a war with People Power; no death, no bloodshed. Whatever happened to that nation where we saw everyone as equals and helped one another?

If I had a choice, I don't think I'd want to move to another country, but as it turns out, I have to in order to start living my future.

Even still... I hope the Philippines will heal. And I hope I can return one day... I hope everyone can support this endeavour. Because I know wishes can still come true.

Squipjoy’s post suddenly made me miss Shilo.

He isn’t my dog… He’s my nephew’s, but I have a habit of playing with the little guy at night when I go throw out the trash. I don’t even know what breed he is, but I think he’s a mix..?

my nephew's pet dog shiloAnyhow... We had to give him to my Uncle because Dad has been… weird lately. My brother tied Shilo by the walkway in order for him to get used to the feeling of having a leash. He was suppose to go to the other house so that there’s a watchdog there, but like I said, Daddy’s been a little weird. It’s like he hates Shilo with a passion, and even threatened to kick him if my brother didn’t move him from the walkway.

Rather than move him to the other house, Mom decided it would be best to let my Uncle adopt him. Uncle loves dogs a lot and happily took Shilo in. I have no doubts that Shilo is much better off there, without a cage and without a leash... But I miss him terribly. He was a good dog and didn’t harm anyone... Minus that one time when he was mad at one of my brother’s helpers. Heh... good dog~ ♫

It makes me wonder if he still knows me... Maybe I should go visit him.
