I've decided to use this journal to review some products. I'm sure no one will mind much.

Thank you for all your kind words and approval, it is good to be back on Livejournal and to have this opportunity. I am disappointed I haven't had more time to spend here, I know it has been a long stretch of absence but I hope you will accept me back with open arms.

Look forward to my reviews in the future! I'll definitely make them interesting to read about!

Thanks again for all your time and support!

11:57 pm - Kyoto 25.6 meters ahead
Master's delay is because of me I'm afraid, I cannot travel the shadows as she can so I must go by air. I hope I am not to late for us to rescue Negi-sensei and our classmates. 40 seconds.

The barrier is prepared, Mater is waiting for my arrival to leave. It is dire that we be there at the correct moment, the barrier only lasts a few minutes with a target the size and power Headmaster-sensei described and master's spell will not be enough to penetrate it without.

15 seconds.

Hold on sensei.

3:38 pm - Tonight...
Master and I have a Go match arranged with the Headmaster tonight, which means I get to make the tea. I look forward to it, making tea is very peaceful and it makes Master happy. It's nice to see Master's smile.

I hope things are going well in Kyoto.

1:51 am - Ah, I'm glad.
Sounds like the class is having a good time on their trip... It is too bad master couldn't go, I believe it would have been good for her. Despite her protests she has been much more energetic this year, especially with Negi-sensei around. It's nice to see master like that, getting along with Asuna-san and Negi-sensei.

But, I can't let things get of task for too long. It still seems like there could be trouble today... the warning signs have continued.

6:55 pm - Oh dear...
From what I've seen recently, I am somewhat worried, and I feel something else about the issue that Ayase-san has mentionted. A feeling that is very... strange. But, I've gotten the feeling before around Negi-sensei.

I read something that Master must know about it, I believe Negi-sensei and the class may be in for some trouble, Headmaster should be warned as well so something can be arranged. It is news that must not be taken lightly by any means if it is in fact true.

I wonder what will happen with that contest, for some reason I... don't think I want anyone to win. I'm not sure what this is.

The confession to Negi-sensei has been the most exciting thing to happen around here lately. It would seem that things have died down, but I'm afraid Headmaster is still a bit shaken about other events in Kyoto... I've heard with good reason as well. Master is calm about this, but I detect she is more upset than she leads on.

I'm supposed to do some investigating on any leads to that man living in Kyoto... I'm not sure where someone would start with such a task though. Especially for a man who is supposed to be deceased. Too bad master cannot go herself to investigate, that would be an adventure of a new color entirely.

I'm interested in Nodoka-san's confession to sensei... but, I cannot understand how I feel about it. Something... different.

Things have been the usual around here, but it seems there was a happening in Kyoto that got the Headmaster's attention. He called a meeting but the details are confidential. I certainly hope things stabilize.

Master seems a bit more herself now, I'm glad I don't have to worry. Still very quiet though.

Master has been in quiet contemplation lately, I think she is concerned somewhat with the troubles in Kyoto. Her meetings with the Headmaster have become more frequent and I've caught her slipping out alone lately at night. I'm unsure of her motives for that particular behavior, but if master wants me to know I'm sure she'd tell me or at least order me along.

We've been training more often in the past few days as well, the training dimension has become like a second home. I still haven't figured out what this is all about, but I will keep listening for any clues. I hope my classmates have not been put in too much danger...

12:53 am - Quiet
There is an eerie silence around here with the class in Kyoto, I think I miss their chatter somewhat. It annoyed master, but at least there was something. But I digress, Headmaster's current state certainly hints that things may be troublesome for Negi-sensei and the classmates. Maybe I will do some searching and see what I can find, it couldn't hurt.

Takahata-sensei seems concerned with the matter also, but he hides it well. I wonder how this is all tied together.

Master has been mumbling his name in her sleep recently. I wonder if her crush will ever go away.

Since the class has left master seems much less energetic, the only thing she's been enjoying is the extra practice. I'm sure she misses sensei more than she lets on. Maybe even our other classmates as well. That strange feeling is lingering once again, but somehow it has changed in the past day or so. I still haven't found a correct description for it.

I've picked up a few new techniques through the extra training, I'm sure they will come in handy. I've also realized the usefulness of computers as a medium for training, a quick search can bring up thousands of fighting manuevers. If anything should happen, I will be prepared.

The Headmaster seems more nervous than usual, his demeanor is that of someone on the edge. He summoned master and I to join him for tea tonight, I'm sure he wants to discuss whatever has been plaguing his mind.

I should go prepare.

1:19 pm - Goodbye
I watched my classmates leave fore the Kyoto field trip today, master seemed disinterested but I think there was some disappointment on her face and she was more anxious than normal. This week we won't have classes because of the trip but some club activities will still go on. Takahata-sensei offered to let master and I use the school computers and the library if we'd like to. I wouldn't mind, but master will probably want to stay home... practicing would be a wise idea.

We'll see, Setsuna-san was especially nervous which is strange. Maybe there is more behind the trip than everyone has been lead to believe.

11:59 pm - Hmmmm...
I was sitting today, waiting with my coffee (for the realistic effect) for master and Hakase-san to arrive. I got scolded for my intruments being clogged with mud, probably from all the recent fighting. Master had some serious things to discuss, though she seemed wary to do so in front of Hakase-san. Asuna and Negi-sensei showed up and they got to talking about... that man.

It seems from the conversation that a class trip to Kyoto is in the works... I feel bad for master, I think she is a bit disappointed that she can never go on the class trips.

11:22 am - We battle...
Master and Negi-sensei had their rematch, it was quite a fight for some time. Makie-san and the rest of the athletics club did well as apprentices, they kept sensei very busy. Sensei used a trapping spell on master and I on the bridge, luckily Hakase-san had equipped my with such a device as to nullify it. At that point master had the upper-hand but Asuna-san arrived...

For a while it was a stalemate, but the blackout ended earlier than anticipated,master lost her powers mid-air and was falling towards the river. I tried to fly down, but I wasn't quick enough... luckily Negi-sensei managed to save her. We are both in his debt I believe.

But... I think master went easy on him. Maybe she underestimated his power... maybe it is something, more complex.

I'm happy though... but that strange feeling hasn't gone away yet. What is it?

9:35 pm - Intruiging
Yesterday master stayed home from school sick, seems my concerns for her were right, I was taking care of her and Negi-sensei showed up, he seemed surprised with the cottage... and the fact that master was sick. They began to argue and it seems that sensei had initially prepared to challenge master, she collapsed with a very high fever and I needed badly to rush out and pick up her medicine. Luckily Negi-sensei stayed to watch over her. I made sure to hurry, when I got back master had woken up and seemed much more cheerful, she was energetically chasing sensei around the house. I think Negi-sensei is a better person than master thinks.

I told master about Negi-sensei and Asuna-san's contract... I still don't know why I didn't say anything to her, but she assured me that things were alright despite being upset, I believe it is because of the excitement over tonight. In a few hours there will be a blackout, master and I have a plan, it will be a wonderful opportunity.

Oh, and master cried today, she fell and hit her head badly... she really is still ten years old at heart.

9:14 pm - Today was... different
This afternoon master and I were heading off when Takahata-sensei said that the Headmaster was requesting master's presence... She told me to stay put, but I needed to feed the cats. Today was an eventful afternoon, one of the kindergardeners, I believe her name is Junko-san, had lost her balloon in a tree. It was fun flying up to get it, even though I hit my head, but she seemed so pleased afterwards. I helped oba-san on the stairs, two more of the kindergardeners began following me at that point, they always seem so cheerful. One of the kittens had floated out in in a box in the middle of the storm drain, a crowd had gathered around but no one seemed as though they were going out to rescue it, luckily I can speed through water easily and the kitten was safe in the end.

When I fed the cats Asuna-san and Negi-sensei appeared, it seemed that pet ermine is some kind of guardian as he urged sensei on. I accepted their challenge, there is definately more to Asuna-san than meets the eye. Things weren't bad initally, but Negi-sensei soon cast a spell I never could have countered... for the first time I believe I was frightened, I... think that is what it is called... I now know how sensei felt when master and I battled him. But... sensei re-called the barrage just before it struck. I'm not sure... something feels different, my view of Negi-sensei has changed but it isn't something I have the capacity to describe. I need to give more thought to this.

And it seems Asuna-san and Negi-sensei have forged a partnership contract... I'm hesitant to tell master... about everything... and I don't know why. This is altogether unlike me.

11:52 pm - Chotto
Master missed class today, Negi-sensei seemed very preoccupied. I'm sure it has to do with myself and master, but his concern isn't unwarranted, master is quite serious about the quest for sensei's blood. It is, afterall, very important to her curse. Still, I hope she doesn't drain all his blood... she resolved not to harm children and he may be our teacher but he is still only 10 years old.

Master's health does seem to be wavering slightly, I hope she isn't over-exerting herself with all this activity.

11:29 am - Wonderful
Master did well in handling Makie-san, she's already recovered I believe as I saw her leave the infirmary this afternoon.

Earlier in the night master was waiting again on Sakura Lane, it seemed Nodoka-san would become her next victim but Negi-sensei appeared and challenged master. He left the partially naked Nodoka-san to Asuna-san and Konoka-san's care, as he took off I clocked his speed at 80KPM but it seems he subdued his power due to Konoka-san and Nodoka-san's presence.

They continued to battle in a game of cat and mouse, they reached the roof of the school and it was time for my assistance to begin. Without a partner, Negi-sensei stood no chance and although I felt bad about hurting sensei, my duty is to protect and aid master. Asuna-san showed up just as master was about to take Negi-sensei's blood and she broke through master's barrier.

We had to retreat but Asuna-san's power... I cannot determine how she penetrated the magic shield master has placed, it doesn't seem as if she has any magical properties and there isn't a chi or aura about her what-so-ever. I'll prompt master to investigate, there is something strange about Asuna-san.

4:16 pm - Some free time.
After the class successfully got first place in the exams and completed the school year a party was thrown, the Narutaki twins wanted to celebrate Sensei's approval as an official Mahora teacher. I'm happy for him.

When the party started, Negi-sensei had seemed to have left but he re-appeared later with a girl in a bunny outfit. She was pretty, but it seems she had a striking resemblance to Chisame, especially with the glasses she put on just before her clothes were torn to pieces. The girl claimed to be someone else though, I'm sceptical. The physical match was almost 99% spot on.

Today we didn't have school, master got some good practice in... the full moon is just around the corner, we must be prepared.

9:21 pm - Hmmmm
It seems I have distressed mater with my recent disappearance, I don't know how many appologies are necessary to compensate. I think my studying was successful, but I must be careful not to over-do it, studying the normal way is very difficult.

I think the exam went well, the baka rangers almost didn't make it in time but it is good they were able to in the end. Master doesn't seem to like them much, I think she fears that their stupidity will rub off on her or myself. They don't seem so bad to me, but it is best not to take any unessecary risks.

Chao has been such a bother to master, it makes me somewhat angry that she would go so far as to sabotage and breaking and entering over something so stupid as an intelligence evaluation. But I think there is more to that girl than everyone gives her credit for though... but I can't place it nor do I have enough information to do so. I'll keep my eye on her from now on. And I will be wary with Hakase, though I'm sure she won't do anything having helped in my creation... she doesn't seem the type.

We should be getting the test results soon, for master's sake I hope the class doesn't place last. That would be terrible.
