Instead of diligently finishing up on the Skygrasper, I am now sitting here watching Dragon Ball Z… movies. Borrowed the whole movie collection from my M0nejer ^^. I avoid any anime (particularly shounen) series with more than 100+ episodes (bleach, naruto, conan, one piece, dbz, etc) because they are slow and takes up so much damn time. I haven’t seen ONE SINGLE EPISODE of the aforementioned anime series. I’ll watch the DBZ movies though since they’re short and brings back good memories- first anime I was exposed to… and first saw it in Cantonese :D.
My m0nejer is a hardcore DBZ/Vegeta fangirl. Beside the movies, she also has all DB/Z/GT soundtracks and the likes ^^;. One of the most ovely abused references (among others) we imitate at work is the “OVER 9000!” line. For example, like today:
M0nejer: hey Z! What did the scanner say about our sales today?
Z: huh? wut? o_O
M0nejer: NOOO! You messed it up! That’s not what you’re supposed to say!
Z: x_x… oh! IT’S OVER 9000!!!!!! *crushes thin air*
M0nejer: You ruined it! >:O
Basically, we would often communicate in ways that would bring the otaku lulz ^^;. I usually imitate some part of Light Yagami or Lelouch vi Britannia (right down to the FABULOUS pose) when things are going just as planned… or act like Kamille Bidan/Amuro Ray (or generic angsty protagonist) and wail “YOU ADULTS DON’T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING AND ONLY CARE ABOUT YOURSELF!!!” when things go wrong. She understands the references real well XD. We just laugh it off at the end ^^. It looks like we are just screwing around but we do work seriously ^^;.
My m0nejer was also the first person to introduce me to anime outside of the mecha genre… beginning with Ouran High School Host Club ^^;. Yea… I watched it all the way through. I had to question my masculinity afterward though…
Then she introduced me to Lucky Star… which I also watched all the way through and got my mind warped by the “moe” trend. I felt like I lost a few brain cells by the end of this anime… ^^;. From time to time, I had to ask “why am I watching this stuff?!?!”. I learned something though… never ask a squealing fangirl for preferences on what anime to watch. You might end up stumbling upon something like Junjo Romantica…
