Getting this post done early. I don't want to fall behind again.

DAY 15: A song you love singing along to. )

vethica: (Default)
Wow, dang I missed a lot of days. I was planning on catching up on Thursday, but Anime Boston ate my entire weekend. Whoops. AB was pretty spectacular, though. I had a lot of fun. Will hopefully post a con report within the next couple weeks. :D Also Passover ends in a few hours and classes end in a few days so I am feeling pretty okay right now. Just have to get through these last couple homeworks and then finals. Yosh~

I also started watching Madoka today. Yes, finally. It is good so far, but would probably be better if I did not know so many spoilers. :( Still, I like it. The characters seem pretty cool and I love the art style and I want Madoka's house. Kyubey's voice is annoying though.

*deep breath*

DAY 09: A song that makes you hopeful. )

DAY 10: A song by your favorite band. )

DAY 11: A song on the soundtrack of your favorite movie. )

DAY 12: The last song you heard. )

DAY 13: A song that reminds you of a former friend. )

DAY 14: A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend. )

Otakon report! (WARNING: LONG) )

So all in all, Otakon was pretty awesome. ^_^

Loot! )

A meme! (LESS LONG) )

I think this entry has set the record for most tags in a post on my LJ.

Watching Slayers (the dub, anyway) is such a surreal experience because the male lead has Brock's voice. Like, exactly Brock's voice. But that just makes it that much better. I can't believe I never watched this show before, it's super fun. I really have to watch the rest sometime.

Also, even after so many years, I would still totally marry JCA. (The first two seasons, at least.) I don't even care that marriage between humans and cartoon shows is probably illegal everywhere (except maybe Guam). That show. <3

...I think I'm joking. Maybe. I hope.

So I had a dream where Christopher Columbus and Sadako/Samara from The Ring were BFFs. I don't... I don't even know anymore. But then I had one about Rick Murray, so it was all good.

Didn't finish Genshiken in time for vacation to be over. I think I made a valiant effort, though. It's definitely the most episodes of one series I've seen under my own power. (Yes, I know how sad that is.) Also, continuing to make progress in Fire Emblem. I'm on chapter 12 and no one's died yet. ^_^ (Yes, that took entirely too many restarts.)

Pokémon fans on my flist: you might want to check out [ profile] birdboy2000's recently completed fic, Love, War, and Pokemon Battles. And no, I'm not just reccing it because I'm biased. :P I've read the thing and it is epic and well-written and worldbuildy and long, and I don't think enough people will read it and that saddens me. So. Yes. Check it out maybe.

And, uh, Hetalia fans, you should watch SkadiPirate's videos. They are good and have good music.

I suppose I should do some kind of year-end post. All the cool kids are doing it. Um, I liked 2009 a lot. It was probably one of my favorite years that happened to me. So let's hope 2010 will be even better! :D

Fandom year-end meme )

Okay, yes, I realize it's a little late in the day for this, but Merry Christmas! Hope y'all have/had a good one. :D

So I am doing an unprecedented thing and actually trying to watch a whole anime on my own time! This is because I have found Genshiken and it is wonderful and awesome. I mean, it's a slice-of-life about nerd life. They don't get much more awesome than that. It is also giving me a great opportunity to practice my Spanish because those were the only subs I could find ._.;;. So yeah, I'm going to try to finish that over the vacation. My current rate's three episodes a day, so I should be all right. I just wish there were more fanworks. :| Also I am totally kind of crushing on Madarame a lot. And also I sorta ship Madarame/Sasahara liek woah.

Also, started playing Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. It's really hard but really fun, and I'm attempting to beat it without losing anyone. Which... is impossible, because it's Fire Emblem. But darn if I'm not going to try.

So! It's been like three weeks. Let's see what I've been up to!

- Beat Kingdom Hearts a few weeks ago. It was a good game, if a little short. Really sad ending, though. ;_; Also, there's no way I'm ever shipping just Axel/Roxas again. Axel/Roxas/Xion for life. (...Roxas/Xion can come too.)

- Got to nearly 100% completion (134/135 puzzles - that last one is hard!) in Professor Layton and the Curious Village yesterday. Beat the game a few days ago. Started it a few days before that. :P It's a very addictive game, but very short and with no replay value. I'd recommend playing it in short chunks, "short" being here defined as "less than five hours". ._.;; LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES, KIDS.

- Digimon: Hurricane Touchdown is a really trippy movie. Especially the original. I don't think I understood one thing that was going on, but it was quite an experience. Also, I'm really saddened that the American who gives the kids a ride didn't become some kind of meme. "Japanese cars are REALLY GREAT! Made in Japan is REALLY GREAT!"

- Brawl in the Family's current "A Mushroom Kingdom Carol" plotline is... whoa. Whoa. I've always had an appreciation for this comic's style, but who would have thought a silly little webcomic about Nintendo characters could craft such an emotionally affecting story? Dang.

- Artists of the Blood+ pictures on Safebooru, I am disappoint. That series is entirely pretty art and pretty people. You can do better than a bunch of pictures of Saya and Diva being vaguely incestuous. Vary it up a little. Come on, let's at least get some nice ones of Hagi.

Seto no Hanayome appears to be a harem anime where the harem consists solely of a mermaid who's the heiress to a yakuza family and a guy with an afro. It also has a giant octopus. I can think of no higher recommendation for an anime.

(Disclaimer: I do not know if I am recommending this anime, because I don't have any plans to see past the first two episodes. But doesn't it sound awesome?)
vethica: (awesome)
And of course I start watching Bleach again the week after the last Szayel episode before the filler arc. :| I watched it anyway, but mainly for Halibel and her hot Fracción. Mira Rose's voice is a thing of beauty. *_* Now, off to find the Szayel episodes on YouTube.

Yes, I know it's "Mila Rose". It's also "Harribel". (And "Sanderwicci".) Don't make me give up on my dreams, okay? D:

Also, I didn't think it was possible, but I may have found a Disney dub to rival Norwegian Tarzan: European Spanish Nightmare Before Christmas. I am seriously considering buying this CD. I haven't even seen the whole thing in English yet. :|

While we're on the subject, had an incredibly trippy Kingdom Hearts dream last night. I really need to lay off that game for a while.

On the bright side, the voices are perfect, especially Dondochakka's. Well, I'm still not in love with Grimmjow's, or the fact that his name is pronounced "Greemjow", and Nel's voice sounds a little too old for her, but whatever. At least we finally got to hear Szayel, whose voice I am going to marry, kthx. :B

Ponyo's hot dad is so hot --

"How hot is he?"

Ponyo's hot dad is so hot that my bookmark folder for him contains only 8 fewer pages than my one for SPHFWLKaiB. Which is quite a feat. Although I don't generally go specifically looking for pictures of SPHFWLKaiB, and there are a lot more likely to be multiple pictures of him to a page. So I guess it's not that impressive. And yes, I know I am probably the only person who thinks Ponyo's hot dad is hot. Whatever. He has nice hair.

It's recently come to my attention what an embarrassing percentage of my thoughts is spent on attractive fictional-type guys. Which maaay not be the best thing to write about now that I have an attractive real-type boyfriend who reads this thing. So, uh, let's see what else is floating around in my head.

Okay, how about some brief thoughts on Bleach 224? So brief they don't even warrant a cut. )

Stuff got long, so have cuts for the rest too. This one is about Bleach also. )

Hetalia shipping? In my TMBG? )

Aaand more Disgaea. ) Yeah, so I once again exhort you guys to play Disgaea. It even makes leveling fun. Plaaay iiit.
vethica: (italy bff)
I'm sorry, but if Hetalia does the entirety of "Cleaning Out the Storage" in English with those godawful accents, I may have to watch it on mute or something. Which is a shame, because it's a really powerful scene. It's like, I mean, I guess it makes sense to have countries actually speaking their own language, but then if they can't actually speak it very well, it's a little hard to suspend disbelief. Plus, why isn't Lithuania speaking Lithuanian then? "THEN I'LL GO MAKE SOME. COFFEE FOR YOU" indeed.

Also, Sato finally evolved. Just, y'know, if anyone cared. Also I hit 200 hours, and caught Cresselia, and discovered the wonders of the Underground. The Wonder Underground. Currently trying to get all the fossil Pokés - I've got Omanyte, Kabuto and Lileep so far. Lol I don't know why I'm going on about Pokémon. Probably because I forgot how to actually say anything important. :|

OH WAIT. Somehow I didn't know before about this, but the Haruhi Suzumiya dub dubbed God Knows. And it sounds good. Yes. YES. I love you dubs.
vethica: (Default)
(which should be about one of you, heh)

Grell and Sebastian. Come on. There has to be something that can be done with this. Someone at least has to make an AMV.

And to those who haven't seen Kuroshitsuji, I really encourage you to. There's drama, horror, comedy, a handsome butler who kills people with kitchen implements, a comic relief cast with actual plot relevance, and, oh yes, tons of flaming gay. (O.A., you'll especially like it; the main character is about twelve, and the amount of implied shota involving him is pretty astronomical.) Heck, while I'm at it, I also encourage you to listen to Belle and Sebastian; their music is some of the best I've ever heard, especially on "If You're Feeling Sinister".

And now for something completely irrelevant: I totally always thought Frida Kahlo would be, well, ugly (I mean, wouldn't you with self-portraits like these?). But I looked her up and it turns out she was actually kind of pretty. Who'da thunk?
vethica: (Default)
Another random unrelated stuff post, aren't those fun? :B

Don't you hate it when you're rereading fanfics you used to like years ago, and it turns out they're filled with gratuitous fangirl Japanese? Yeah, me too.

Almost directly related, in my youth I had a crush on Vegeta for a time, and afterwards I could never remember what it was I saw in him. Well, I just figured it out: Chris Sabat's voice. Seriously, compare. 1999 version (which, yes, is Chris Sabat, but imitating Brian Drummond)? Thoroughly unattractive, actually kinda freaky. 2007 version? INSTANT HOTNESS *_*. *goes off to watch more DBZ*

Also, another hot guy topic (look at me actually connecting my random stuff, whee). Serious question here: why does everyone hate Szayel so much? This cut contains SPHFWLKaiB-related whining. )

To wrap up: here, have another Phoenix Wright: The Musical song. It's been stuck in my head recently and I love Cody's singing.

So the first Hetalia episode came out yesterday. And, uh, I know the folks over at [ profile] hetalia have probably discussed this one to death, but I have to throw in my two cents. (Or two groszy?)

So. This is Poland. Friends call him Feliks. He talks like a valley girl. He has crossdressed multiple times. You get the point, right? He's kind of girly.

... They gave him the manriest voice in the entire show. (about 1:05) Well, maybe not as manry as Germany. And of course, there has to be an exception made for Amerikamina. But. Seriously? Poland. Oh, Hetalia. Please never stop bringing the lulz.

Edit: oh, hey, a real fan person said pretty much the same thing I did. I feel special. :B
vethica: (Default)
Oh, man. This was a terrible week for homework. And sleep. The most sleep I got was six hours. And it doesn't look like this weekend will be much better. A long weekend and everything. D: D: D:

But somewhere in the middle of all this madness I did get to watch the first episode of the Ouran dub (yes, late Vethie is late orz). Now, normally I don't have quite as high standards for dubs as some people do, but even still I was very impressed. Holy crap this review is long. )

And speaking of dubs... (ALSO KOREA WHAT) )
vethica: (Default)
The reason I haven't been posting for a while is because I didn't want to post until I did that meme... and then... I didn't do that meme ._.;;; I WILL DO IT EVENTUALLY HONESTLY SOME OF THOSE QUESTIONS ARE HARD

Basically, I just... Bleach 200 came out the other day and... how wrong is it that I find Szayel's begging/pleading while he's waiting to die completely hot? Especially the "hayaku hayaku hayaku" bit. (Refer to this video if necessary.) Seriously? The guy's been waiting an infinite number of centuries to finally get stabbed in the heart, he's begging to hurry up and die already and all I can think is "man, that's hot?" That's just... messed up.

I just wish I knew what Mayuri was saying to him afterwards. From my limited knowledge of Japanese, I've gathered it's something about having multiple slow-motion sexy makeouts, but I could be wrong. ^^;;

... Is that blue stuff his hair?

Okay, let's talk about something else. So the other day I thought finally logging onto Gaia after a year and a half would be fun. It was not. It was lonely, mainly because I only have one friend who goes on anymore. I know some of you guys used to be on there - any lapsed Gaians willing to start up again? It'll be an ~*~adventure~*~!

Also I got Animal Crossing: City Folk, someone Wi-Fi with me sometime.

P.S. Happy (belated?) winter holiday ^_^

W-why did I have to find Axis Powers Hetalia scanlations at 11 last night ;_; US/UK? Sweden/Finland? Germany/Italy? Russia/Lithuania? YES PLZ. And who knew France, Austria, Canada, America, and heck, even UK were such good-looking guys? (Poland kinda gets on my nerves though.)

Scanlations and pics and all manner of wonderful things are at the comm, [ profile] hetalia. Drama CD sub is here. Trust me, you need to see this.

And switching gears, some anime meme )
