UOC camp was pretty exciting; partly because I actually had quite a few things to do.
Productivity feels really good, especially because the numbing inactivity of the three months holiday is starting to take a toll on me.
Like wow, I am actually complaining about freaking holidays.
The post-camp syndromes are starting to eat at my boredom too; I am glad to have the EOY 2014 cosfest to look forward to.
Yes, I know that some of these "exciting social events" are temporal and can be pretty pointless, but I insist that I must learn from and go through many more new experiences-before I sign my life away to the working world.
Maybe it's hard to believe since I always prioritize other events before it, but I really do miss church.
I long to listen to the life-giving and energizing words of the word and the fellowship of my brethren. It has been too long. Most important of all, I miss the connection with Christ.
Spare me the weird look, but Christ is very real. I can vouch for that.
He is always with us, loving us and directing us, whether you "think it" or "feel it" or not.
It has always been comforting and peaceful in communicating and praying to Christ. But as I get more and more caught up with my worldly activities, I feel like I have disregarded many of the things he has directed at me, and chose to do things my own way.
In other words, I am very spiritually sian now.
I can't wait school to start soon, so that I can get back to my weekly schedule of going for our English Youth Forum.
But then again, I have probably the shittiest timetable anyone can have- a five day lesson week with the weirdest timings everrrrr. So it's with mixed feelings that I count down to the first day of new semester.
And OH I forgot that I am no longer a freshie now. Like great, I can't afford to get lost in school as much as last year again.
I have finished watching the anime version and dear me...
I AM ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWN BY THE STORY.
AND BY MIND BLOWN I MEANT
MY MIND FELT LIKE IT HAS BEEN BUTCHERED AND DROPPED LIKE BIRD SHIT FROM THE SKY.
I think the story was supposed to be portraying some kind of super psychotic love.
But the problem is, it was too erratic and random to the point that any element of plot twist and "surprises" no longer have any effect on me because I can't even take the story seriously anymore.
The protagonist and main love interest of this harem story, Yui Komori, makes female protagonists like Isabella from Twilight and Anastasia Steele from 50 shades look as though they have the best personalities ever. SO DEEP. WOW. SO MUCH CHARACTER.
The art was pretty nice but that's it. The characters are literally soulless. The attempt for a story plot was as lazy as Shu Sakamoto.
I followed the entire story till the end, hoping that there would be a mind blowing episode explaining the chaotic and irrational behavior of the vampires but hell no, there was absolutely no sense of a closure.
What makes me so mad is that the story COULD HAVE BEEN ULTRA AWESOME. But no, they decided to butcher the story and cater to lotta fanservice.
Lo and behold there was also the game version: Diabolik Lovers- Haunted Dark Bridal.
Which had a total of about 24 alternative endings. From what I've read, only about like 4 endings or so from the game are not fucked up.
Okay I will be fair and I'd say, the storyline for Subaru Sakamoto and Shu Sakamoto in the game seems to be almost decent. I thought I would ship Ayato with Yui but his cray crayness is a big hellllll noh.
The thought of checking out the manga just makes my blood run cold.
