Wow I haven't been on LJ since forever, by which I mean like a week. You know when I said I was done with my buttload of homework? I got more. =_=;; I haven't been responding to posts, or basically anything, and I'm sorry.

So! NEWW was really fun. )

Umm. I got back into Phoenix Wright: The Musical pretty recently, and I've been listening the crap out of it. It turns out that apparently it has been licensed homaguh. Like, for real, by Capcom. If there was any fan project that deserved to become official, it was this one. Congratulations to the people working on it! :B Also if any of you guys have not listened to it by now, you really should. You will like it. Some of the songs are on the website and the rest are on YouTube. :D

Also... I want to RP. Following [ profile] rpanoncomm and having a lot of cool LJ friends who RP and a boyfriend who mods one can do things to your mind. This wouldn't be a problem if I knew how to do characterization for any character, ever. Or if I could trust myself not to idle out. =_=;;;; I've been getting back into Kingdom Hearts in a big way (mentally, anyway*) and I want to replay Days soon, so I'll probably have that floating around my brain when I do. I really don't think it will go anywhere, but... a girl can dream.

* By which I mean mostly thinking about Axel/Roxas/Xion with some Sora on the side. Hey everything is better with foursomes amirite.

And a meme! Stolen from [ profile] wraithi.

Translation of last post. )

So now I will talk about manga.

Seven Days volume 1 came in the mail yesterday. I ordered it back in August, on the recommendation of... someone on f!s, I think. That is basically where I get all my stuff to read. ._. Anyway, I wasn't disappointed. It's a shounen-ai with a sweet story, realistic characters and an incredibly cute art style. Nothing earth-shattering, but cute. I pass along the recommendation.

Now, of course, I need something else to wait for. So I ordered the first volume of Futaba-kun Change after reading a few chapters online. I'm now seven volumes in and really liking this manga. Yes, it's a gender-bender with kind of an ecchi premise (guy turns into a girl when he's aroused), but it's really not as bad as it sounds. It ends up being more of a character-driven comedy. What I'm trying to say is, if I wasn't put off by it, you probably won't be either. :P And it's cute. The whole thing's online here if you want to check it out. (Warning: a fair bit of toplessness.)

Also rereading Saint Young Men again, because, well, it's Saint Young Men. I just wish more of it would hurry up and get translated. D: If any of you haven't read/don't know of it: Jesus. Buddha. Roommates. If that's not enough to get you to read, it's also really funny. I've read it twice before and it still makes me laugh. I'd be remiss not to provide a link I guess.

Wow, all my posts talking about things I read turn into rec posts, don't they. Anyway, to close on a different note, Hourou Musuko's English release date got pushed back two more months. Why am I not surprised. =_=;; The current prospective release is in April, but don't get too attached to that one either. I just wish I knew what was the reason for all the delay. I WANT MY WANDERING SON DANG IT.

"Miles, my boy. This verdict is what all prosecutors strive for."


I love you, Ace Attorney localization team.
vethica: (Default)
You know, I was totally okay with being Ace Attorney monogamous. I had one crush in the series and I was fine with that. But that was before I started Investigations, by which I mean started watching over O.A.'s shoulder while she plays Investigations. And, well. Just. Stupid sexy Lance with his handcuffs and his dramatic wind. Craaap. :|
(It's okay, Jake. You're still the only cowboy detective for me. ♥)

Also. You know how the first time I saw fanart of Rip Van Winkle from Hellsing I thought she was a dude? A feminine dude with pointy teeth and glasses who maybe reminded me of someone? (Also, freckles. :D)
Well. So it turns out someone ships it. Yeah, I'm not going to link the picture because possibly NSFW, but there is definitely Rip/Grell fanart out there. And now I kinda ship it too maybe a little. Grell's soulmate will always be Szayel, though. :B

I've had a lot of stuff to post and it was too much to post in one post so this post will only post part of it. And yes, I am trying to set a world record for the number of times saying "post" in one sentence. And the number of tags on this post.

First, a meme stolen from HG:

Make a list of 10 fandoms you are in/things you like and then have your friends list guess who you think is the most attractive/would date/sleep with/etc. Cross them off as they're guessed.

1. Bleach Szayel ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
2. Kuroshitsuji Grell ([ profile] alex_romao)
3. Lost
4. Hetalia
5. Nolanverse Batman
6. Sandman Dream ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
7. Phoenix Wright Jake Marshall ([ profile] alex_romao)
8. US presidents
9. Yu Yu Hakusho Kurama ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
10. Star Wars Obi-Wan (Episode II) ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)

And, like HG's, most of these'll be super easy. ~*~so predictable~*~

Cut for the rest. Anime Boston, Pokémon stuff. )

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.
vethica: (Default)
Fans of Phoenix Wright: THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT LINK YOU WILL EVER CLICK IN YOUR LIFE (that has to do with PW, anyway).

Yeah, I know what you're saying. "Musical remakes of popular lawyer games? Everyone does those!" But this one is different. In this one, the songs... are actually good. Seriously. And so is the singing. This person has a bunch of videos of them. (and here is a storyboard of my favorite one for no real reason) Check them out. They won't disappoint.
vethica: (Default)
I beat TWEWY (the first playthrough, anyway). Just throwing that out there. Also everyone should get that game. It's good and awesome. Maybe a little short, but good and awesome.

(also ffff the soundtrack is on iTunes? Must acquire 10 dollars... *flat broke*)

You know, I've never really held my childhood sacred. So when people do things like Rule 34 Pokémon or whatever, that doesn't bother me. But finding out that Abraham Lincoln thought blacks were inferior to whites? That's really depressing. D:

Also, I know I'm really late to the party with this like with everything else, but new fandom: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Go, watch. It's short - only three acts - and really awesome. Great music, great acting, heck, it's Joss Whedon. You really don't need any other reason to see it.

And now I'll do a meme.

(Stolen from [ profile] athousandwinds, who I found... man, I don't even remember.)

List 12 characters from different fandoms first. (No cheating!) Then answer the questions under the cut.

1. Szayel Aporro Granz (Bleach)
2. The Joker (The Dark Knight)
3. Darth Maul (Star Wars)
4. Mello (Death Note)
5. Rock Lee (Naruto)
6. Lloyd Asplund (Code Geass)
7. Rick Murray (Degrassi)
8. Kirby (Kirby)
9. Desmond Hume (Lost)
10. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)
11. Phoenix Wright (Phoenix Wright)
12. Hal "Otacon" Emmerich (Metal Gear Solid)

The questions under the cut )

Be warned: I've found a community ([ profile] fandom_memes) full of these things, so don't be surprised if you get spammed by them over the next while.
vethica: (Default)
I blame Phoenix Wright for addicting me to this song. I suppose this means I actually have to watch the series now... dunno if I'm looking forward to that one.

Also: the question finally answered...

"Don't worry, I'm a top."
"A top?"
"An aggressive top," Ryuzaki said. "I have never once been submissive. One of the few things I can boast about. I have never even been submissive to a traffic signal."

- Another Note, page 82

With canon like this, who needs fanfic?
vethica: (Default)
Um, okay. You know Lloyd from Code Geass? (For reference, he's the white-haired fellow in the first bit of this video.) You hear that voice? That's GAARA. XD (Also, Lelouch is Ichigo and Suzaku is Sasuke...but Gaara.)

And recently I've been playing Phoenix Wright, the current best game ever. So when I go looking for stuff on the Internet, what should I find but...

Q: Then from Naruhodo's point of view, Mitsurugi is...
T [Shu Takumi, director]: He'd probably say he's become a pretty cute guy. (laugh)



Also, this = cutest picture d'awwww. And, um... Edgeworth in a frilly apron who seems to have a shirtless picture of Phoenix. This is apparently official art. *currently in fangirl heaven, brb*

O.A., Usa-chan, and I have decided that Phoenix Wright got his name the same way Fenchurch from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy did hers. Also, Mr. Kimura from Azumanga Daioh is Phoenix's dad. ...Or something. (O.A., you can make your objections here.)

Any Star Wars and/or Avenue Q fans may want to watch this video, set to "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist"; it is almost the perfect-est video ever. Warnings: racism (which oughtta go without saying) and one instance of profanity. And, in the video, a very odd couple. XD

And a plea: Does anyone still have their old Pokémon "2BA Master" CD? I've discovered that mine's got a big scratch right down the end of track 3 and the beginning of track 4, so I was wondering if I could copy those off someone else's CD. Thanks. ^_^
