forchancookie: (Gaia Avvie)
I was pretty bored tonight. I watched Groomer Has It and took Opie and Niku for an extended walk and still the time crawled. I thought about working on a project in the craft room, but I'm stalling on that. I ended up on Gaia mindlessly playing Blackjack ^_^;; Then I discovered that I'd forgotten about one of my mules and ended up logging into there and dressing her up all nice and pretty. So now here's me and my mule army looking all pretty, well most of us anyway.

My only male mule is Commodore Cookie on the left. Ironically, I have him dressed as a pretty indian princess or something XD Next is Turn the Paige, who is based off of an old RP character. She's such a sweetie. Then there's me. Ba-bam! I'm totally rocking that frog in my hair XD Then there is For-Chan, the forgotten mule! She had a really n00bish outfit on, so I glammed her up. Ain't she cute? :D And finally there's Major Tom, who has recently turned into a centaur and hooked up with that dashing stallion. They are an adorable couple!

Anyway, I'm in love with those new reversible hairpins and bracelets! Definitely one of the best common items ever! And if you're thinking "Man, she sounds so dorky" all I have to say is "DUH!" Cause I am. How long have we been friends and you're just figuring this out? XD

So yeah, I'm just posting because I'm happy that my pixels look prettiful and I'm still a bit bored. I started reading a new manga but got distracted when Andrew came home. I guess I'll skip back to it. ^_^

Note to self: I probably need to make a new Gaia avvie now since you've long since changed outfits...but damn, I love that outfit too. I need like an outfit gallery or something.

ETA: Watch this! It's a little rough on the ears, but hilarious.

New Spring Anime

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009 02:57 am
forchancookie: (Interesting...)
Anime is a good distraction when trying to not think about pain. Here's a few thoughts on the new Spring season anime that I've been watching.

This one was pretty interesting. The art and animation were pretty slick. You're not given a lot of information off the bat, but what you do get is interesting and enough to string you along. You follow a pink haired girl as she gets out of jail for unexplained reasons. Two transvestites and a gruff old guy are there to pick her up and bring her back to some post apocalyptic Tokyo where jungle has pretty much taken over the entire city except for a small island of civilization in the middle. There's something complicated about carbon taxes and then the military comes to blow things up and our heroine and her fabulous cross dressing mentor kick some ass. It's definitely going to be a small fry with a big destiny will overcome great odds and become a leader type shows. It will be interesting to see the tidbits we're given come together. This is on my watch list for now.

Sengoku Basara
This one is based off a series of video games called Basara, the English version is Devil Kings. It's similar to Samurai Warriors and uses a bunch of Japanese historical figures. If you'd played Samurai Warriors, most of the names will be familiar and it's a similar gameplay style so there's all these big flashy attacks. With all these men running around fighting and filling the screen with tension, this one has a lot of slashy potential. Yeah, it's probably not the greatest anime out this season, but it's a silly action filled romp if you just want a distraction and something to day dream about later.

Valkyria Chronicles
This one is based on some PS3 RPG. There's some war. Some guy gets mistaken as a spy. There's a competent female city guard and an incompetent one that faints a lot. The competent one jumps the gun a lot, accusing the spy guy of being a spy simply because he's standing around sketching fish and she doesn't recognize him. Come to find out he's some famous town hero's son. There's some gun shooting and there will be a tank battle in the future. As you can tell from my description, this one didn't really catch me. The art is pretty and soft and they do something interesting with the textures on the colors. In the end I really just watched it to pass the time and not because I really enjoyed it.

It could go places, but so far, I don't seem to care too much. It's a bit silly really. The episode ended on a dramatic cliffhanger with an entire army circling one house after some scouts chased a mere two people to said house. Because those two people were sooooo important. They don't even know who they're chasing and they send the whole army after them? And then they don't just destroy the house, they give them a fighting chance. You have like a half dozen tanks! Just level the house and move on. Geez!

Pandora Hearts
I get the feeling that this is supposed to be a Kuroshitsuji replacement. It just has a similar feel. Young master, Victorian style setting and clothing. The only problem is you have no idea what the hell is going on. Amidst a story about a boy coming of age and running away from his servants, there's all sorts of disjointed things that you just know will spell disaster. On the one hand, the lack of explanation annoyed me. On the other hand, I feel like I can't make a judgment on it because I have no idea what it's about or what's really going on other than flirting with disaster of some sort.

Phantom: Requiem For The Phantom
This is the girl assassin show. If you watched Kite or Gunslinger Girl, you've seen it before. Don't hold it against it though, because so far it actually focuses on a boy. It seems that he accidentally got tangled up in an assassination and he has some 1337 assassin skills, so they train him to be the girl assassin's partner. The episode is half flash back (not too far back) and half display of his hitman skills. This follows an OVA simply called Phantom the Animation, which I'm currently downloading. It was interesting enough. It promises a complicated story to come. I'll be trying out the next episode.

The things still on my list to watch are:
Guin Saga
07 Ghost
Ristorante Paradiso

I might also give Souten Kouro a try. It's based on the Three Kingdoms, that would be the Dynasty Warriors era for those of you who've played it. It kind of amuses me that, while not based off them specifically, we still get a Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors anime this season. The only problem being that the character designs are different from those you already are familiar with fromt he games. Ah well.

Some evil shadowy guy is planting a new virus on computers, intent on creating a computer zombie army! Oh noes! It's set to go off on April Fool's Day. Oh ha ha. Jerk. Anyway, read up on it. You don't want your computer to become one of the slobbering zombie masses!

In other geekery, I've downloaded the Venus Wars Soundtrack. I saw it well over ten years ago when the SciFi Channel (it will never by SyFy dammit!) had their Saturday morning anime block. I recorded it on an old VHS that's sitting in my closet right now. It also has Project A-Ko, which I was in love with, and Odin, which was ok, on it. So nostalgic. I want to watch it now....heck more than that now I want to find the A-Ko soundtrack. I'm such a geek.

Anyway, some things I really remember about Venus Wars are that in the dub the female love interest's cat was named Andrew. My brother was amused by this as a child. They had a shot of the main character in his tighty whities that my younger self thought was hawt. XD In one of the op/end songs, the female singer uses Engrish and says "crash and burn". When I heard that I was all "Woah! It's the same! Now I know Japanese!" Ah younger self, you were so cute! *pinches own cheeks* And that's enough geekery from me.

Mwa ha ha ha! I did it! I was sitting around having a perfectly enjoyable Valentine's Day single and I thought "You know what? I want to do one of those "Ronery" type macros. So I got out some cloth and props and took a few pictures and viola! I did a Sarah Version too.

Yes, I am a big dork. I know. But you love me right?

And no, I was not "ronery" today. I made some delicious chicken fingers with veggies and had a yummy caramel apple and sweet potato bread pudding that I made yesterday for dessert. I even made myself a rose out of ribbons. This weird domesticity that keeps popping up disturbs me, but whatever. It means I can eat yummy things and have all sorts of weird and interesting 1337 skills. XD

Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day! I love you all!

Ok, so I wanted to find the Bottle Fairies theme song for download. I type in "Bottle fairies theme song" into google and guess what I get? My journal pops up as a result on the first page for mentioning the theme song stuck in my head. I am such a dork! ZOMG! I need an icon now. And to find that song >_>

Edit: Found it! Might as well link it right? Bottle Fairy Binzume Yousei - Image Album 1 - Four Seasons and Bottle Fairy Binzume Yousei - Image Album 2 - Asa Hiru Yoru. P.S. Sarara singing karaoke is so cute! *squee* she's my favorite fairy *points to icon*
