April 2014 Newspost

13 days ago by JRob

It's that time again for a new newspost.

My second semester in college is wrapping up, and exam week is a little less than a month away.  Thankfully, I'm not getting completely bombarded with homework and shit like the end of last semester (meaning more time to work on my AIM contest songs).

A.I.M. Contest

I've already submitted one song for the Art-Inspired Music contest:

I've already finished the second one...sort of.  I originally wanted to put a violin part in it, but I've been having trouble finding a reliable microphone to record it with, as my university has apparently repurposed its only recording studio on the campus (which was free for students to use).  If I can't get a violin in there before the deadline, I'll just use the synth I originally had play the melody instead - I'll upload it anyway, though, and will change it if I can record.

EDIT 4/10/2014 @ 4:22 PM:  I went and submitted my second song to the contest - here it is:

Here's another song made using a Pokémon soundfont I uploaded to Soundcloud:

What manga is J'Rob reading?

"Crepuscule"

This is an interesting one; it actually isn't exactly a manga - it's a manhwa (which is basically the Korean equivalent).  For any of those who have read/watched Rosario + Vampire, it's somewhat similar in a way.  The main character is a human brought into a world that is only made up of humanoid monsters (vampires, succubi, and such), and has to avoid letting people find out (though a couple people do know, but help him hide it).  The main character Lark was treated as an outcast in the human world because of his red eyes (which only "monsters" had); the son of a noble from the other world, Setz, goes over to the other world to explore and ends up meeting Lark.  Setz offers to take Lark to his world to escape the torment from people who call Lark a "monster."  The inhabitants of the other world (Crepuscule) all have red eyes, so the main character being human isn't easy to detect (there's more technicalities involved, but that's the most noticeable trait).  I've gotten caught up to the latest chapter within a week; so far I'd rate it a 9.5/10.

Also - motherfuckin' Seere

What anime is J'Rob watching?

"Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren"

So, the second season of Chuunibyou has ended.  Honestly, I wasn't too happy with the ending.  The season as a whole was pretty good; but, if they don't have a season 3 coming after that ending, I'm gonna be pretty pissed.  I still rate it a 10/10, though.

I swear, if there's a season three, this will become a pairing

There wasn't enough of this

and I'm still not happy that this didn't actually happen

Kumin's the best in the series, though

"K-On!"

So I was wrong about this - there still is more, and episodes 25-27 aren't just special episodes; that and there is a movie (which I'll find a time to watch).  I actually recommend watching this - it's pretty good at laying the feels down hard towards the end.

Also, Yui is the best

And if you don't like it

"Kill la Kill"

I'm pretty sure that anyone who is at least somewhat into anime will know about this one; it ended last month and there's a whole ton of discussion (and flame wars) about it on 4chan /a/.  I thought it was really good overall; the ending could've been better (along with the whole second season - I heard the entire script for it was re-written a couple times).

I SO CALLED THAT MAKOXRYUUKO PAIRING.  I FUKKEN CALLED IT.  I saw it coming from halfway into the first season.

Jakuzure Nonon is the best, though

And here's a music video

That's all I'm going to post for now - I've put making this newspost off for too long.
