Hi you ^^ Did you end up watching Masters Sun? I've been slacking on anime in favour of dramas ;_; watched so much drama...
Had to move away from Korean (though My Love from the Star airing now is ridiculously cute... and Ji Hyo from Running Man has a pretty cute drama out right now too) and start watching Chinese stuff to break the pattern :P
Back to anime now, though. So much stuff to catch up on!
How're you doing/what're you up to these days? How's the otaku fangirl life?
Darn, my hyperlink didn't work. Just go to http://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/ and type in ワンピース 全巻セット and be jealous.
Rikaisama is a modified version of Rikaichan, a text dictionary. I use it for just about everything in Japanese online. I don't think there's a mac compatible version available, now that I look at it, but if you ever decide to switch to based Windows or Linux, you'll have an App that will make your life significantly easier.
I think I understand now that you share my masochistic tendencies. Just as I always engage in hobbies I hate/suck at/get frustrated with, you read shoujo as your choice of emotional flagellation. I appreciate the appeal though, trainwrecks, especially of the teen romance variety, are fascinating in their insipidness and predictability. My preferred method of manga consumption now is entirely raw with the aid of the English translation if I'm unsure about something. Unfortunately, I've taken to reading series that have yet to be scanlated into English yet, so I'm frequently without the mental crutch. Sucks, man.
Forced romance has got to be one of the biggest turn-offs in a story, particularly when it lacks adequate build up and resolution, which describes a lot of romantic couples in anime, barring those in the romance genre as their relationships are the focus of the story. Similarly, one of my biggest pet peeves in fandoms is shippers tainting everything with their perceived romantic tension, insisting that their ship must be canon when in reality, the character being shipped are just enemies/friends/rivals/acquaintances. I especially don't understand how people ship characters based solely on character designs (and, of course, the characters have never even uttered a word between each other). Then again, I virtually never ship characters anyway. I prefer my favorite characters to stay single.
Be thankful you can't visualize the llama's "manga." It was truly quite the artistic endeavor, with character designs ripped right off of DBZ and a plot the likes of which was almost too disgraceful for DeviantArt. At least his backgrounds were decent? While I feel Sensei would have appreciated our manga more (if not soley for Kumagawa and the fact that it was in Japanese), explaining the blackboard would have been hilarious, undoubtedly because I would have pushed the task onto you, feigning ignorance and claiming that since you drew it, only you know its meaning. The best part about Sensei liking Kuma was that when she saw the drawing on my bluebook, she totally credited me with drawing it, haha. I'll take credit for your art over mine any day. Phhhfffttt, yes, I did write 「犯さないで」 under Kise's name. I'm somewhat surprised she never persistently asked its meaning nor questioned one of the Japanese students. Might have been funny if she did. What do you think the chances that she's watched KnB by now are? It is super popular on Tumblr, after all, but then again, she admitted that she doesn't like the sports genre (faggot). Hmmm, now that I think about it, of all of the many nicknames you don, I think Senchou is the one I've used to refer to you as the least. Kise and Lust are the source of that anomaly, I'm sure. Kise being Usopp is oddly apt though. Yeah, I like your idea of making Kuroko our third-in-command. While I somewhat doubt her competence, she is at least quiet and fairly non-offensive. Just better hope she doesn't slack off looking at all the birds flying above our ship.
どーも。I'm glad you like my OC's design - I'm slightly surprised that you didn't join me in having a male OC, but the more I think about it, a genderbent character fits you way more. I'm probably also a little bit thankful, because female characters are so much easier for me to draw than males. Plus, dark blue hair and grey eyes is a really nice combination that I hardly ever see, so props for originality. As for the changes I might make to my OC, there will probably be minor changes to the hair (I might make it a little longer in the front) and I'm still hung up on the eye color. I'll probably stick with magenta in the end, but I'm still slightly tempted to do orange. We'll see. So, for the (probably) final question regarding your OC's design, would you like the hair to be kinda tomboyish and layered or more straight and feminine? I've see genderbent girls that go either way and I want to make sure the design isn't more masculine or more feminine than you expected, since you're the resident genderswap expert. Also, just a warning, don't maintain any expectations for this picture being good. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing nor do I have any confidence in my current capabilities. I've radically changed the picture's basic design at least five times now, if that says something.
The minus arc of MB was so dang entertaining, definitely enough to warrant a purchase of the manga, but it's a shame the series ended on such a low note. It would be so much easier to buy all of the volumes of OP if you lived in Japan, as with everything. Well, I definitely like weird manga more than unoriginal ones, so bring it on.
Just a quick question about your OC, around what age range is she and what hair length do you prefer? Your character sounds really cool so far.
If you're wondering why I'm asking about something I so vehemently despise like OCs, I have kind of an idea for something to draw (it's wish fulfillment to the extreme, but I have a hunch that you'll like it) and using OCs is probably the least retarded way of doing it. Now that I think about it, comparing our OCs that are personifications of ourselves to the ones Leon made of himself and his friends is hysterical.
So, while I'm not sure if this project ever get done (being a perfectionist is horrible), we'll see. I need an excuse to practice drawing digitally anyway.
I sent you the rought draft of my OC - take a look when you get the chance. I drew it a couple weeks ago, so I've had some time to sit on the design and assess whether I like it or not. I think I'm pretty happpy with it, though I'll probably do some minor tweaking here and there in future attempts.
I still hate drawing, man. Why do I torture myself so?
