Had to mentally prepare myself before I watched them.. so here's my report.
Okay, so I watched the first one, and I'm still trying to figure out what the heck Natsuki is supposed to be. And then he walked from behind the bed and revealed that his lower body was in fact inside the creature… who then asked to be tickled by her master. Felt a little like a dinosaur porno. AH! (side note, that was not a sudden cry of ecstasy and pleasure, but one of recognition..?) I know who his puppet thing looks like, Jar Jar Binks. Yes, I think it's completely disturbing. Man and puppet are terrifying, by the way.
Ah, and the second video is missing -- well, more like it was removed. I suppose youtube thought it should spare me the pain.
How freaking long was that intro for the pokemon disaster of a movie supposed to be? Actually, I think I prefer the opening credits over the actual content -- wait, no, I am most definitely sure I preferred the opening. What are you putting me through? I hope your masochistic tendencies made you sit through all of this nonsense. Oh gosh, there's voices.. I can't. No. no.
Moving on… Heh, I love other peoples' awkward moments. That was quite amusing. It's for reasons like this that children exist. Wow, I actually watched the whole 8 minutes and 16 seconds of that video just to see how awkward it would get.
Is it weird that I swore that we went to school with the "Roxas" dude? The things people do in public. Is there no shame? I wonder what doors those key umbrellas open.. "I can't kill you, you're part of me." And that's enough of my random thoughts.
I'm going to make it my mission one day to find something stranger than anything you've ever shown me. Granted, it will be difficult since you know your way around the inner guck of the internet better than I do, but SOMEDAY… maybe, I'll find something.
Ahh, yeah, seeing as how I have a mac, that might be a little difficult. But since I'm still thinking of getting another computer solely for gaming and using my animation/ art applications, it's good to know an app like rikaisama is out there.
Our masochistic hobbies are certainly troublesome, and we should probably stop engaging in them, but I don't see that happening. I'm happy to report though that when I'm torturing myself reading worthless shoujo, on the rare occasion, I will find the hidden resolve to just say, "No, I won't be subjected to this hot garbage." Baby steps. Hmm, I should really jump on that bandwagon with you and just go raw all the way, but I haven't found too many sites that have the raw scans -- and when I do, more often than not, their Chinese raws… but why am I not surprised that you would take a liking to series that haven't been scanlated into English yet? You really do like self-torture.
I feel like I see more forced romance in anime/manga than satisfying romance. Still think Major's failed attempt at romance leaves one of the worst tastes in my mouth T,T Pfft, I honestly don't know what's wrong with all these shippers. They interpret everything as romantic tension. A hateful glare to them is actually the character swearing his undying love. I really don't get it… sex-deprived animals. Oh gosh, yeah, that seems to be way too common nowadays -- shipping based on their appearances. The one or two times I actually did want certain characters to get together, they ended up choosing the obvious (usually dark-haired) worthless sack of air.. and then I realized they were better off alone. Yup, the thought of having my favorite character never sullied by the suffocating clutches of "romance" is one I hold very dear.
Hahaha, yeah, I am truly grateful I am unable to remember that "manga." I only remember something about a boat, and less than desirable character designs. Ooo, though I don't remember the backgrounds, I do recall that we so graciously offered him the position as our background lackey for our manga. To think he had the gall to reject us and want us to work for him. Silly llama. Nooo, you can't make me explain the blackboard to Sensei in Japanese when I can't even adequately do so in English! If that had happened, I think I would have just asked Kuroko what her opinion was since I'm sure she wouldn't have spoken a word otherwise. Hahaha, awww, I miss our bluebooks. Heh, I don't see why you'd want to take credit for my art over yours -- to be honest, I like a lot of your art better than mine (you certainly do better shade work than me). I think Kise asked me maybe once or twice what it mean. The first time I told her to ask you, and the second time I think I gave her some ridiculous answer that was clearly wrong, so she stopped asking me. I kind of wish she had asked a Japanese student while we were there.. Her watching KnB? Hopefully zilch. Then again, she is a local resident on Tumblr so I'm sure she's come across it (wouldn't be surprised if she's already saved pics of characters she ships despite not having watched it). And though I can only scoff at her dismissal of the sports genre, I am secretly grateful for her poor taste. Let her go watch French ladybugs by herself. Hmm, yeah, now that I think about it, I think you only call me Senchou when I call you Banchou, which isn't too often. But at least I don't inwardly cringe when you call me Senchou, unlike when Kise and Lust do it. Heh, yeah, I figured if it was Kuroko, we could pretend like she's not even there and we still wouldn't have to deal with the other annoyances on our ship. Everyone's happy, and by that, I mean us. Ah, yes, the birds might pose to be a problem though. We know how easily distracted that one can get. And we can't just go shooting every bird we see out of the sky.. we'd be wasting our time keeping her in line which would defeat the purpose of having her there in the first place. This may requires further thought.
Actually, I did think about having a male OC, but like you said, I figured a genderbent character appealed to me more. Yes, I also share in your opinion of females being easier to draw than males. That being the case, I'm glad I chose a female. Hee hee, thank you thank you. Yeah, the more I think about it, the more the blue hair gray eyes combo grows on me. Hmm, I'm looking at your OC now trying to visualize the minor changes you were thinking of making. Like you said, the hair would probably still look good if you made it a little longer in the front.. and though I like the magenta eyes, I'm kind of interested to see what orange would look like. Did you try it? Hmmm, yeah, I've seen genderbent girls with tomboyish layers and ones with straight hair.. I think I'll go with tomboyish and layered. It's a pretty safe bet though since I think in this case it could go either way. Hahaha, I'm actually not sure what to expect, so that's just making me look forward to it even more. I have complete faith in your abilities (and masochistic tendencies).
Yeah, I was sad to see MB end the way it did -- ESPECIALLY since Kumagawa just disappeared and wasn't heard from again. Aghghhghffff, I blame you. I went to the site and saw the complete set for One Piece. Really tempted to just go for it.. found one that's only about $83 -- I've spent more money on stranger things.
Hello waifu~ I think we're having a long distance relationship in the 1700s, during wartime. Letters once a year are something to be thankful for :P This is 70% my fault. *hangs head*
How are you??? How's life? I see Japanese all over your page. Making progress huh?
Your now watching list makes more sense now. Lots of current stuff! Which sadly, is not that great.
Last time I tried watching anime, I lasted about 3 weeks and then gave up. I'll continue blaming quality. Everything is so freaking generic these days. Now the question is whether the genericness is because I've seen it all :P or because it really is all crap nowadays. It's probably a combination. I understand that there are only so many ways the limited amount of tropes we humans have access to can be spun, but so much anime these days doesn't even feel like it's trying. I guess I can blame everyone who eats it up anyway.
I switched to manga for a bit... but manga is INSANE. Have you noticed? There are the solid stories for sure. But then 90% of the rest is a pain to follow, whether because of crappy scanlation, lazy art, or just plain bad writing. And the good stuff only gets updates twice a year ;__;
Why is this comment so whiny? I have no idea. Maybe because it's almost 4am and I should be sleeping!
Anyway, anime. Uchouten Kazoku. I remember starting that last season and it was charming? And now I can't remember what happened in the two eps I watched so I'll be starting over with that! I managed to make it through Coppelion because I was watching it with someone. I was actually looking forward to Coppelion, but it fell through so much... all cheese and focusing on crappy villians for too long. Especially disappointing because it had such an amazing setup... post-apocalyptic wastelands are my favourite!
Oh and I watched the Steins;gate movie... which was meh. Decent. But not much compared to the anime. Can't remember if you even liked that, though?
Then, idk what it was. Free time? Nagging from people? A childhood weakness for Little Mermaid? Started watching Nagi no Asukara again. It was interesting to begin with because it reminded me of AnoHana (cheeese but complicated relationships are fun mixed in with childhood nostalgia). But then the characters got super whiny and annoying =( I stopped paying attention. When I picked it up again, though omg. It was actually keeping my interest! Crappy characters aside, they did the whole complicated childhood relationships thing with a twist and added a bunch of plot and also a time skip.And I do quite like Hikari and Tsumugu. It's been moving really slow after the time skip, but I'm still looking forward to see how it ends. How're you liking it?
Then right after I caught up, I decided to catch up with Noragami. This was the only show this season that seemed bearable to me. And you know, it's nothing brilliant, but I like Yato and the nice balance of drama and comedy with the plot moving along steadily. Shounen that doesn't feel like it's old and tired, without actually bringing much that's new to the table. Good art helps, ofc. Yuki is adorable >_< hopefully he gets with the program though.
Other things I want to catch up on, Little Busters, Golden Time, Hamatora (which apparently isn't that great?), Space Dandy, and that Gundam show you rec'd (still doing well?)... Also sidenote, Toaru Hikuushi... how are you watching that? I was pretty happy to get something from the same world as the pilot and the princess movie... but that was such a terrible first ep. And the cliched love at first fall thing? I'm wondering whether I should bother to watch ep 2 :P Comments?
Although... a better question might be, how're you still watching Pupa? xD
Oh and I just added Ace of Diamond to my list of things to watch... I completely forgot about it >_<
Ahhh, that's kind of hard. Hmm, the age for my OC.. if I had to choose, I guess I'd say probably 14 or 15 – that super awkward age for most teenagers. And for hair length, medium (so around the shoulders) should be okay..? I'm glad you think it sounds cool, 'cause when I think about it, I just shake my head and laugh, knowing that that's exactly how I'd make the main character of my manga (especially shoujo, heh).
Hahaha, I had a feeling you were up to something. And though I can't begin to imagine what it could possibly be, I am definitely looking forward to it. If there is any way I can appease some of the torture, let me know. Oh gosh, as carried away as people can get with their OCs, I felt like I could not even begin to understand the reasoning behind the ones that he made for him and his friends. On the other hand, when I looked at yours, I actually got excited thinking how you captured its essence (and yours) pretty darn well. That just goes to show you why llamas cannot be compared to the true light.
Yeah, I have no idea why I keep re-reading all of these manga. Just did it again a few days ago with a Korean manhwa. Or why I torture myself with this rotting shoujo crap. Wow, I think I have faced almost all of those problems with various manga at least once. Ah, but I don't think I've read one that's ever been axed due to "some new child-protection laws." But then again, you never know. Yeah, I was just thinking that – there's so much scanlation drama lately.. and then they want to tell us all about it as if I really care. Switching to raw manga is definitely a good idea. I'm still half and half. My hard copies are raw, but if I'm reading online, it's usually in "english" (or that sad excuse of english). Hmm, I agree with a lot of the manga they have on their list. Surprisingly though, some of it is kind of similar to the top lists of different manga sites I use (I don't usually trust the fans' tastes)… recently a lot of yaoi have been creeping up higher and higher on the lists (and that's why) T,T Yeahhh, the anime list could use a bit of work. I don't know how some of those got on there at all, but whatever. Ah, I have some Assassination Classroom lying around somewhere, but I haven't touched it yet. I don't know, just knowing that an awful fanbase will soon sprout is kind of a big turnoff. So I'd say, yeah, it'd be pretty difficult for you to escape that particular misfortune.
If TiTP were some sick joke, that would have made it more manageable. But since those people sincerely believe that nonsense, any feigned sympathy I could have mustered up ('cause there definitely wasn't going to be genuine sympathy coming from me) was out of the question. Heh, landwhales and hamplanets – it's poetic in a way. Heh, you would enjoy TiBP. Pftt, yes, that is much more amusing then that horrific wasteland. Ahhh, that's pretty difficult. The fact that it was Kise added bonus disgusted points, but reading all those blog entries was painful. Then again, just looking at Kise, I could imagine him whispering all of those entries in my ear, so yeah, he wins.
And for that, Oda has my deepest respect. I feel so many potentially awesome shounen manga are ruined by forced or annoying romance (and the examples that come to mind seem endless). And yet, as you said, the One Piece shippers thrive.. ugh, my skin is crawling just thinking about them. Crap, if I could go back in time, I would not have given the faintest hint that I watch OP to Kise or Lust. Because yes, unfortunately, I am to blame (inadvertently) for their sudden desire to watch it. Just thinking that that could happen to other shows that I liked was enough to make me keep my mouth shut… though, to be honest, I didn't even want them watching shows that I disliked. Probably just didn't want to have any connection with them whatsoever.
Hahaha, the western influence on his "manga" was quite evident. Even down to the character design (that I'm actually having trouble trying to visualize at the moment). AHHH, cane guy. Totally forgot about him.. yeah, I still don't understand that. Tch, we worked so hard on that manga too. I feel like so much stuff was wasted in that class. Explaining the blackboard would have been quite the inconvenience. Sensei received some brownie points for liking Kumagawa (though, come on, how can you not like Kumagawa). I can completely believe that you addressed her as Kise. The name just suited her too much, that it was almost impossible not to. Didn't you put Kise – ah wait no, you wrote 犯さないで under her name on the door. Heh, even now she might not catch on if you call her Kise (as long as she doesn't ever ever watch the Basketball which Kuroko Plays ^^). PFFTTT! Yeah, that describes her language perfectly. And glaring wasn't my intention. I usually have much better control over my poker face, but somehow she just seemed to draw out all of the little cracks.. Being away from her, I think I've mentally recovered. I don't even flinch when she calls me Senchou now (still think of the occasional sarcastic remark), but I'd say I'm back to my apathetic self. Aren't you proud of me? I know, I really did like the Senchou title. Heh, even my little brothers call me Captain. I'm not quite sure how this all started – I mean, yeah, I know I watch One Piece, but it's not like I call Kise Usopp or Lust.. anything for that matter. What? Of course you have to talk to them. I need you to do it so I don't have to. Okay, okay, we'll get a third in command. But who? It can't be llama or Pink. What about Kuroko? She's like a shadow, only popping up when she's called and stuff. Hmm, I don't know. Man, I don't even know what the name of our ship is. I don't think I could handle anything like the Skittle Brigade (it would make me want to jump ship just thinking about the crew members). And it can't be a baseball team name either because that would mean that Kise and Lust are on our baseball team. Ughhh…
I guess I don't need to give you my opinion on the eye color since you finished it already. But yeah, like I said, I actually really like how it came out. A touch of psychotic with quite a bit of a dangerous air to him (despite his young age). So what minor changes were you thinking of doing to your OC? 'Cause I got to say, I'm liking the expression, color choices and overall execution. Hahaha, and you torture yourself because although you are quite sadistic, your M side calls out to be abused. And you have chosen drawing to be your medium of torment (it helps though that after the matter, you get to look at all of your beautiful art). Hmm, when I was younger I always did pure white hair with blood red eyes, but I think lately, the image has changed a bit for me. Since I have always had a thing for gender benders, I would probably do that. Ridiculous I know, but it can't be helped. So a girl dressed as a guy with dark blue hair (almost black) and pale gray eyes. The only adjectives that are coming to mind are apathetic and heartless. Hmm, what other kind of details were you looking for? As for a name, I think Genesis shall suffice.
Ah okay, volumes 7-11 for Medaka Box. Since I got 7-9 last week or so ago, I just have to get you 10 and 11 and you'll have the Minus Arc. Haha, yeah, since there's was no way I was buying the all of OP, I thought I should just get a couple of my favorite arcs. As for HanaKimi, naturally I wanted to have at least one gb series. I don't know if there's any I would really recommend from that list – some I bought just for nostalgia, but you never know, you might enjoy one or two. And yeah, I'll give you that, they are definitely different.
