One Week And Counting - And Other Stuff  
It is a beautiful day, and my butt is all nice and warm thanks to sitting on the power transformer for my laptop. Life am good.

New Ultraman movie out on DVD in one week and counting. (Yes, I know it releases on Friday. And if I were in Japan, this would be Friday. Yay, time zones!) I'm listening now to the soundtrack for the last movie and remembering how freaking awesome it was. Hopefully the new one will be equally good.

In slightly related news, Ultra Galaxy NEO is looking like it may have more Ultras in it than I was first assuming. Which is good, since Rei really needs someone around to give him a boot (or fin) to the head.

(Yes, that comment was largely made with intent to pique madsqueeble's interest. Seriously, *is* anyone other than me watching UG:NEO? Or have non-stop monster battles scared everyone else off?)

Now why haven't I considered that use for the power converter thing? It's cold here and that's a great heat source. Hmm.

*looks at the icon* Why didn't you think of it? Gee, I wonder... ;)

I admit, the non-stop monster battles have made me not be in a particular hurry to watch UG. I seem to be in massive Ultraman marathon mode at the moment though, so I might get around to it eventually. If possible though I want to finish Tiga and Dyna before the movie arrives so I will be all prepared and stuff. (I'm cramming, as it were...) So those have priority. ;)

Don't hold out too high expectations for UG being the greatest thing since... well, most things. You might like it better than Cosmos, but not, I expect, better than Gaia or Tiga. (Read: definitely watch Tiga first -- there's some good stuff in there!) I find it fun, and I like seeing more of that universe. It doesn't have much in terms of Deep Plot (tm), and the characters are generally just okay -- except for Oki, who amuses me greatly and who I think is Teppei reincarnated, and Rei, who annoys me. (Though I do like watching Ultraman give him a psionic boot to the head every time he's being exceptionally dumb. It's always nice to see a well administered boot to the head.) UG:NEO so far has marginally more plot than its predecessor. And happily, it seems that there will be a continuation of the boot to the head. (Something that was sadly lacking in the first two episodes.)

Meh. At the rate I'm going I'll be lucky to be halfway through Gaia before the movie arrives. And I'm too lazy to muck with online streaming sources to watch Dyna. :P Oh well, I didn't have all of Ace or Seven or Jack's background and I still loved the first movie.

"all nice and warm thanks to sitting on the power transformer for my laptop"

I wonder if that's OSHA approved, because it's freezing cold in my office...
