Eurovision 2016

This was a good year for us in Eurovision. Lithuania won 9th place!!! This is the second highest place we have ever achieved (the highest place was 6th back in 2006; the year when Lordi won the Eurovision). Also, just for a few seconds (during the voting) we were 3rd! This is because this year jury voting and tele voting are separate which results in more points and higher places for less popular countries like us.~
Fun fact - this is the second time Donny Montell goes to Eurovision. He also represented us back in 2012. I really liked Lithuania's song this year and I'm very proud of Donny!

Aside from Lithuania's entry, I have greatly enjoyed Australia's song. And yes, Australia finally got in Eurovision after trying for many years. :D Beautiful song and good vocals, though. I'm sad Australia didn't win. It was jury's favorite song and in top 10 according to tele voting but Ukraine managed to beat Australia at the last second.

But truly the best performance goes to presenters - Mans & Petra. Their song was so hilarious and the whole performance was truly wonderful! The real winners of ESC 2016. :D Another interval act I really liked was from 2nd Semi-Final - Man vs Machine!

Now we have to wait another year for another Eurovision. I wonder how Ukraine will deal with hosting this whole contest, though, since it's currently at war with Russia.

First impressions: Red Data Girl

P.A. Works brings a new anime! Just like with KyoAni, I nowadays I tend to watch any new anime from this studio. Also, character designs are done by Mel Kishida who is responsible for Hanasaku Iroha characters' designs and the opening song is done by Annabel (who also sang Another and Sankarea EDs). But how is anime itself?

Red Data Girl episode 2

I didn't expect 2nd episode to be streamed on NicoNico Douga, so I was surprised when I found out that 2nd episode is out. But that's fine. Less agony waiting for me. :3
