Food

So on... what day is it today? Saturday... so um... Yeah on Thursday, while in Chapters (Canadian? bookstore) I for Erementar Gerad vol 2, Protoculture (Animenewsnetwork's magazine), and a Japanese cookbook.  And since have viewed a Asian cookbook their before, and finding no Japanese food within it, I decided now was the time to get this book, with only Japanese food within it.

And hence managed to convince my mom it would be fun to make something from it.

So we decided on 2 things.  Edamame (had it in a Japanese Restaurant before with friends) and broiled salmon noodle soup.

The mission? To find the ingredients. -_-  Easier said, then done, i assure you.
The needs: mirin, sake (liquor store for that), and miso paste.
Managed to find the Mirin in Loblaws, and the sake in the LCBO (avoided the draft kind this time, x_x).
However we couldn't manage to find the miso paste, so we picked up a bottle of 5 Asian Spices sauce, with included miso paste. -_-'''

It was really really good too! ^___^

Also bought myself something greatly needed yesturday...

A New External Hard Drive! Clocking in at a wonderful 500GBs!!!
Boxing week sale at Futureshop, for only $199.97; $200 off.  (in Canadian funds of course)

Anime related this time

Okay, so unlike my post earlier today, this one is Seiyuu love related mainly, plus a few extras.

Randomly stumbled upon vol 5 of Ghost Hunt in Chapters, and recalled someone talking about it on LJ.
So when i returned home, i decided to check out the anime, of which was fansubbed up to ep 6.
While that was d/ling i decided to check out the cast list, something i normally do first, and then decide if i'm gonna watch it or not.
Only seiyuu of note was Narita Ken, and we all know he gets the characters that talk the least amount as possible.
However despite this, I'm finding it to be a great series. Also in episode 6 Lin (Narita's character) says quite a lot for him.

Hmm, there is Nazuka Kaori, who plays Mai (another not annoying female character), she played Subaru in .hack//SIGN, and Shino in .hack//ROOTS, and Nunnally (i thought her name was Natalie, lolz) in Code Geass. So i do know her voice, but not her name.
*Tai Yuuki - Naru-chan <-- i may have to start stalking his guy too.

i think there was something else, but i can't remember it now. -_-''''

Well new Version on my site: Again Tomorrow?  It's Shounen Onmyouji related. :D

Edit: Ah-Ha! now i remember! It's Shounen Onmyouji related! lolz

Umm, both SuzuKen and Jun made appearances, Yay!
