Don't you just hate spoilers? I do, too. That's why I always try to include warnings. However, I sometimes ramble a bit too much here or there and maybe a few (or many) key plot points slip without me giving proper notice. So I'd like to include a blanket spoiler warning for the weary internet travelers of the world: Here There Be Spoilers. You've been warned.

Sunset Superman (Or: How I Stopped Trying To Wake Up Early And Started Watching More Anime)

Lately, I really have been in full on otaku mode. I've been working a ton of nights lately and this doesn't help me rekindle my social skills at all. My diet has also largely been consisting of eggs, toast, double stuff Oreos, Pop Tarts, and ramen with eggs. I eat a lot of eggs. Every now and then I try to work in an actual meal, but those only seem to happen on my nights off.

It is what it is, I guess. Last night I tried a stream of consciousness type of writing and posted it. I wrote some things that had been on my mind for a while and it felt very therapeutic. As an introvert, I think it is important to understand the things that make one introverted and how to cope with being introverted. I also think it is important to deal with people that are not as introverted. Especially the most stressful type: The ones who talk... a lot. 

I've gotten accustomed to going to sleep at five in the morning and waking up at noon. All the time in the darkness means I can't really go to the mall after I get off work. Or get a bite to eat. I can't play the guitar late at night, either. So that leaves watching even more anime than usual. 

I hope this doesn't sound like I am complaining because I am not. Closing shift sucks big ones (well, all shifts in the fast food world do, really), but being able to completely otaku-out because it's dark out and late at night is pretty awesome. And I also have the comfort of knowing I can't get called in when we are closed until six am. 

I've been watching anime a lot more. In less than 24 hours I've watched 22 episodes of anime and one Korean movie. In the last five days I've watched 44 episodes of anime. I've got Durarara on tap right now and I've also got My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too and Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? on simulcast. I could have gotten in more episodes if I didn't blog or watch YouTube guitarists. Ergo Proxy and Full Metal Panic are also next on my list to watch. I've also decided to start reading the Dr. Slump manga in addition to continuing with the Dragonball and Yu-Gi-Oh! series. 

A lot of reviews will be coming here shortly. 

I also decided to make a poster wall from each of my walls. I've been getting tired of looking at the bland brown walls and since I have a lot of free time at night each time I get off work I've been brainstorming how to really make thing pop. Not to sound like an anime male protagonist, but it's gonna be even harder to get that elusive girlfriend now. I call it: The Walls of Jacobia. 

P.S. -  I settled on naming this post (partly) after the Dio song. Dream Evil is an underrated album, btw.
