Skip Beat! Ends, 2nd Season Confirmed?

My favorite Skip Beat! ended recently at episode 25 though I thought it would last about 50 epside before. We don’t need to be sad since at the same time the Manga still continues and though no official news was announced we all know that the 2nd season is sure to come. In this post I’d like to make some review which I haven’t done for quite a long time and discuss something about the 2nd season.

Promise Project: 10 Years of Makoto Shinkai & Tenmon [FLAC]

I love, and love the works of Makoto Shinkai and if you do too, you have to get this album. It’s the Eminence Symphony doing an orchestral version of most of Makoto shinkai’s songs. Though it’s not really using all the instruments in an orchestra it’s still pretty darn amazing. Also added a mp3 version on request =), but you can’t get a higher quality than the FLAC version, by the way the FLAC version has booklets included. Happy listening!

TheAkiba 7th Revamp

TheAkiba V7 Revamp

This is the latest redesign of TheAkiba since almost two years ago. Lots of things are changed and lots of new excitements are added. When I look back around five years ago when TheAkiba was first established, it was running on a free theme, and for most amateurs, we rarely pay for those premium themes or plugins since most of us won’t even need them. There are always free alternatives, and when you start to realize that everybody else is using the same thing as yours, it is time to rethink. So why not just create our own theme? Let’s stop here and guess I could come up with another few thousand words for my learning experience. But now, let’s just get more focused on the latest revamp.
