So on to some news, both on the exciting and not so exciting part.
Sad news: Voice Actress Kawakami Tomoko passed away at the relatively young age of 41 after losing her battle against ovarian cancer. She was famous for her role as Utena in Revolutionary Girl Utena, which sadly, I have never watched before, but now I plan to. But I have always adored her as the voice of Misuzu (AIR), and as Rosette in Chrono Crusade.
RIP Kawakami-san, you will be remembered of fondly :(
Good news 1: To take our minds off the depressing news above....
Kalafina 3rd album confirmed! :D
Nothing yet so far apart from it will be released sometime this autumn, but still... I'm seriously excited about this! There has only been only 2 singles so far -- Kagayaku Sora no Shijima ni wa and Magia, but since it's been confirmed that Kajiura Yuki will be in charge of the music for Fate/Zero, is it too much to hope Kalafina will sing one of the theme songs?
Still, I'm stoked by this news. And you can bet I'll be pre-ordering it this time round XD
Good news 2: I'm going to Japan tomorrow! :D
Well, it's actually a (super duper) short vacation in Tokyo, really. I'll be going with my dad and sister. Mom and my brother will have to stay home cause they can't get any leave with their current schedule. We'll depart tomorrow (Tuesday) and we'll be back home on Friday. Short, right?
But then again, none of us could really be away from work for too long. But we still want to have our vacation, so we decided to just get on with it or we'll never get the chance to go there :P
I have no idea how much I'll be able to spend... I think I could pretty much guess how much are the stuff I want to buy -- like CDs and such. But seriously, converted some ringgit to yen here, and RM 1,500 = ~40,000 yen only? o_O
I wonder how much money I'll have left once I buy souvenirs for family and colleagues... *sigh* I'm going to be broke T-T
I'll most likely post some pics of the trip when I get back ^^
