    So I made this a month ago but forgot to blog-advertise it on PC...

    ... and you'll now notice that I've revamped my profile, blog layout, signature, and avatar to correspond with Natsuiro Kiseki, with the color scheme mimicking the school uniform colors in the series

    Yeah, I mean, at the price these self driving cars are probably going to cost when they come out, it would probably be cheaper to just call a taxi whenever you want to go somewhere. And people being distracted by their in car gadgets is definitely a problem where I live.

    Not to mention hackers. There's actually an anime OVA series (and movie) that covers the topic of self-driving cars, called eX-Driver. In their society, they have a select team of skilled drivers who have to pursue and deactivate the general public's self-driving cars when they go haywire.

    Yeah, it's why I keep mine around, to keep in touch. That said, I don't need a device that can surf the web or play games or take videos. So what I have (just does calls and basic texts) is enough for me.

    I can't see myself playing any of those mobile games (though the Love Live! one is kinda tempting lol)

    And the thought of self driving cars frightens me and is a sure sign of the apocalypse.
    I agree with this. And to be honest, what's the point of having a car if you're not going to drive, haha. I also agree that cars don't need a lot of gadgets, there's a place for everything, and having a huge display with stuff in my car... Looks awkward. Only if you had, a stereo and GPS, that's enough for me. I'm always going to be a fan of light cars, without any kind of confort, just made to be fast and noisy. But, comfortable sedans are just great for long trips, and some of them look amazing. It's really hard to choose a kind of car for me, being honest.

    Well crap, and it doesn't look like there's any way to opt-out of it either.

    Guess I should select some random region just so I'm not randomly stuck with the cesspool that is Hoenn...

    Still, York County, SC best region. And nothing will change my loyalty. #qualityinncarowindsislovequalityinncarowindsislife

    -Why do you like Quality Inn so much?
    I think it started with their '90's logo which I always found classy with its black and gold colors:

    Nowadays, it's because of the price/value quotient. The Quality Inns I've stayed at have, for the most part, been good properties that have also been affordable. Yes, I've stayed in better hotels, like Embassy, Hampton, and Marriott, but they're also much more expensive. And, I just got back from an anime convention at a $250-$300 water park resort in Ohio where the rooms actually weren't as good as two of the local Quality Inns/Suites I use as "staycation" getaways.

    Of course, it could also have to do with staying in so many Quality Inns as a kid and not having any particularly negative experiences with any of them.

    -Favorite cosplay?
    Ooh, tough one. I'm gonna go with one of my newer cosplays (debuted at a con in April in SC) of an obscure character/series: Saki Mizukoshi from Natsuiro Kiseki:

    I like the style of the uniforms and cosplaying as a blond tsundere is always fun The show itself I found to be a very enjoyable as a short, relaxing series that few know about and even fewer cosplay from. I'm trying to bring recognition to the series and look cute at the same time haha
    The skirt on my Leaf cosplay (recently retired) didn't look terribly accurate. However, if you ask my friends in the NC/SC con scene, they'll tell you I'm best known for my Sailor Mercury cosplay xD Serena (old, X/Y game look) is the newest addition to my cosplay lineup.

    -What do you want Game Freak to do next with Pokemon?
    Pokemon girls fashion game! The outfit customization in X/Y was almost a game unto itself, but it still lacked in variety. Anything where I can put Leaf into a ballerina outfit, Dawn in a maid outfit, and Serena in a wedding dress would be a major winner for me.

    Part of me also wants to see a game where the "evil team" is a huge investment company involved in securities fraud and their boss is a Bernie Madoff-like character. A lot of the minigames would involve financial investigation and detective work.

    And cars. Cars should be a viable mode of transportation in a Pokemon game. Especially large station wagons with the fake wood on the side.

    Top 10 List #15: Favorite Anime Idols

    That's a lot of freaking time to spend on that.

    Also, Maki #1 but no Nico in the top 10? This list is clearly and wholly unscientific. :P

    I don't think I know enough anime idols to even have a top ten myself, though, haha.
