I just purged half my gallery of old crap that I forgot was even there, I haven't looked at it for such a long time. It's been over a year since my last journal, thought it was about time I made a new one.

I actually have the urge to draw N again. I'm really busy right now though, so let's see if anything comes of it. I'm playing Pokemon White 2 right now, and I have yet to see if N is in this game at all. (He is far too sexy not to make an appearance)

I can't wait for Pokemon X and Y to come out, it looks so awesome!


Now to see if I even remember how to use Sai...

I haven't been around lately, sorry. I've been more interested in making amvs and I don't have the time to both draw and edit. Plus I've been lacking inspiration. I'm sorry to all my lovely watchers, I will draw again eventually when the inspiration hits, but as of right now I'm not feeling it.

*Spoilers for the ending of Nabari no Ou*


I read the last chapter of Nabari no ou and I BAWLED. The scene with yoite was so sad and touching and sad. Especially when Miharu was anguishing over why he didn't bring Yoite back to life when he could and instead erased the memory of him. I wanted him to live so badly. I don't think I've ever been that attached to a literary character before. It's really strange actually. I guess that means Kamatani was a really good author. (or I get too into my manga...) Except for the very end. It was a terrible ending actually, all the loose ends are left unresolved. It was unsatisfying.

The way Miharu kept saying Yoite's name was really sweet though. I loved that. It made me tear up again.

And is it just me or was the last Yoite scene kinda fan service-y? It felt as if they were about to kiss. Despite my love for yaoi, I really don't like the miharu/yoite pairing. Maybe it's just my habit of seeing BL in anything and everything. Yeah that's probably it...>.>

I actually had to read the raws of the manga and the translation separate, since the last four chapters haven't been scanlated yet. Why did the scanlation teams just drop it like that? Nabari no Ou is pretty popular isn't it? It's weird and irritating... especially seeing as how the last two chapters had horrible translations... I wish I could read kanji... T_T

Anyway that's it. All my journals lately have been about manga or anime...

oh and speaking of anime, are people who call themselves "otaku" aware that it's a negative term that means something like an obsessive nerd? Like "still lives with their parents at thirty, basement dwelling" nerd. If you were to call yourself that in japan people would look at you strange...

I just started watching a new anime called No.6. I'm totally in love with it! :squee:
It's shonen ai (since they put emphasis on the hand holding scene, I'm guessing it was meant to be more than just friendship) and has a really interesting plot line and great art and animation. So far, there's only four episodes out, but I think the entire series will have 11. The first episode is so cute! And I love the fact that Shion gets excited by storms. Cuz I'm kinda the same way:aww:(though I don't scream~)

Here's a trailer if anyone's interested: www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6JTjF… (It's a terrible trailer...)

You can download episodes here(there's also a summary):www.animetake.com/no-6-episode…

Also, this is the amv that inspired me to watch it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwf7L1…
And another one: www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5Y6l0…

This anime may just make it on my top ten list if the quality continues.=D If you like shonen ai with a good plot, then you should check it out.;)

There's also a novel that's in the process of being translated. I haven't read it yet, so I don't know how well the translation reads, but if you're interested here's the link: ninteenpointzerofour.wordpress…

This is honestly the best Harry Potter fan fiction I have ever read. And it's about a character who never really appears in the book.  It's just so beautiful and thought provoking. I first read it about a year ago, and am in the middle of re-reading it now. I almost passed it up because the main character didn't interest me, but I am so so grateful that I didn't. I honestly never thought much about Regulus Black, despite the fact that he played an important part in Voldemort's defeat. This story deals with how he came to  do just that. There's not a lot reveled about Regulus in the books, so the author has a lot of creative flexibility.

It's dark and shows a more realistic view of the death eaters and their magic(in other words this wasn't written for kids). And Regulus is portrayed as a tortured genius who slowly delves into madness, so his thought process is very interesting.

If you love Harry Potter I urge you to give this fiction a chance. Even if you don't normally read fan fiction. The writing is actually more colorful than J.K.Rowling's writing(imho). I was hooked after just the first few paragraphs.

I just finished watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica(or Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, I'm not sure which is most used...) and it is awesome! I normally hate magical girl anime, cuz they're all so fluffy and happy-go-lucky, but this one is nothing like that at all. It is dark. It's realistic.  Every time they fight, they risk their lives, and characters actually die! Which is something I've never seen in such an anime. You don't really know what the outcome of of fight is going to be, so it's more exiting. And I love how the line between good and evil is really blurred.

I really love the art style, it kinda reminds me of Alien 9. And the music is awesome!I really love the ending theme. www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYytXV…

It's only 12 episodes long, so the plot line doesn't drag like with other magical girl anime. Which is good, cuz i got bored with Shugo Chara and Tokyo Mew Mew.

This anime is definitely one of my top ten favs. =D

You can watch it in HQ here: www.animeavenue.net/category/m…

Does anyone know of some really good Inuyasha fanfiction? And by good I mean well written. It's so hard to find fanfiction that isn't complete crap.

Anything with Sesshoumaru is fine, though I prefer inucest(don't judge me).

Please help, I'm going into withdrawal here.

btw, here is some good sesshoumaru fanfiction I found:

Tales From the House of the Moon A Sesskag fic

Fugue Sesskag This is actually really depressing, but it is one of the better fics out there.

Solidarity Sesshoumaru & Inuyasha kid fic non-slash The characterization in this is amazing.

  • Playing: Pokemon Black (I switched versions ;P)

I first started watching Inuyasha back when I started middle school, something like ten years ago. It was the second anime I had ever watched and it's what inspired me to first start drawing anime. Then, when I started highschool, I gradually lost interest in it(I can't remember why) and I never finished the series.

But recently, I started reading some really good fanfiction(which is incredibly hard to find) and decided to give the series another shot. And I discovered some things that I had not realized in my youth.

The English dialog sucks. Badly. There are so many embarrassing cliches in it that it makes me want to rip my hair out. Can't they be a little more imaginative? In cases like these, I would usual switch to the Japanese version, but I just can't stand their Japanese voices. They just sound so wrong to me, since I grew up hearing the English dub. Especially Sesshoumaru's voice. :(

This brings us to another little discrepancy from my childhood memories, in that the voice acting is not all that great. Alot of parts just don't sound natural, like you can tell they're just actors in a studio reading off a script. (with the exception of Sesshoumaru, since David Kaye's voice is so smexy;P) But maybe I'm just nitpicking, idk.

Also, the animation sucks. But that's excusable i guess since the original anime is kinda old. From what I've seen in amvs the new season has great animation.

I really wanna watch the new season, but I heard david kaye won't be playing sesshoumaru, which makes me sad(haha, I am so obsessed) I have no idea if they've dubbed it yet or not, I don't wanna watch it in Japanese. I guess I'll look into that later.

So yeah, watching it again kinda ruined my childhood memories, but I still love Inuyasha. And I will watch that last season, which seems to have so much hot Sesshie action in it.;P

Is anyone else having trouble with the new firefox 4? I upgraded from the old version about a month ago, and since I did, Firefox has been driving me insane.

First off, it freezes and crashes ALOT. I think I fixed that problem by clearing my download list though, but I'll have to wait and see.

Second, It will only display 1 page of image results in google or yahoo. I can't see anymore than that. I need those images for referencing so it annoys me. Bing seems to work, but I really prefer google. This doesn't happen in Internet Explorer. I was thinking it had something to do with Java, but I don't know what. I know that a couple months ago, I had that fake java virus on my pc, but I got rid of it.

Third, it is really slow! This is ridiculous! I know it's not my computer cuz it's the only program that runs slower than it should, and I know it's not my internet , cuz Internet Explorer works at normal speed. Right now as I'm trying to type, the cursor will disappear for a couple seconds and I have to wait for the words to appear on screen. It sorta glitches. The same with icons. They stop moving for a couple seconds. And whenever I try to scroll up or down, it takes a few seconds to respond. Everything is just slow and glitchy. This doesn't happen in Internet Explorer. It didn't happen with the old Firefox either. This has only ever happened when I had a virus, but I've scanned my computer several times and it's clean.

Right now, I am using several programs simultaneously, and Firefox is the only one that's slow.

I'm really clueless when it comes to computers, so maybe it's something really simple. I went to the firefox website for help, but I couldn't find anything there...

I'm tempted to go back to using IE, at least it runs smoothly, but I really don't wanna do that...

Can someone please help?

N!!!! AHHH! I LOVE HIM!!!

I just spent the last two hours looking at pics of N on zerochan. I think I must have faved like half the gallery! I totally need to get a life:XD:
It's been a long time since I fangirled this hard over an anime character. A Pokemon character at that. And I haven't even finished the game yet^^;

I think gamefreak created him with female players in mind, cuz the way the ferris wheel scene played out, it seemed like pg fan service to me. When he stepped close to my char. I was actually expecting him to kiss her :O_o:

A lot of people say N is a creepy bastard, so I hope something doesn't happen that makes me lose interest in him...  I kinda get why people say that after the ferris wheel thing... That was a bit creepy...

Anyway, I'm totally gonna draw him. Yeah...:plotting:

At least I will if I can get his stupid hair right...:shakefish:

I just finished reading this really adorable manga called Lover's Doll. It's shonen ai, of course. Since I'm bad at summaries, here's the one from manga fox:

"When Shin hears about a doll known as the "bloody doll" from his friends, he can't help but be curious. Instantly falling in love with the figurine he decides to buy it, but there are rumors about the doll and how it got its name. It can supposedly move and talk and some former owners even claim it drank their blood. Unfazed, Shin buys the doll anyway to find out that the rumors might not be as ridiculous as they sound..."

The doll isn't really blood thirsty, he's actually one of the cutest things I have ever seen, in a 'imma kick ur ass if u dont luv me' kinda way=D Also, he can turn into a normal sized human being, so the relationship isn't as disturbing as it sounds^^; He's also shy and socially awkward, which makes me squee~ :giggle:

And the ending is so sad! At the end there's a dialog box that starts 'once upon a time' and proceeds to tell the whole story in a fairytale form. But when I read the last two lines, they really got to me. I knew it was coming, not because it's cliche, just that it's the logical conclusion to that relationship. But still, the moment I read those last two lines, I instantly had tears in my eyes! It's just so so sad...

Oh, the manga is only one volume long and it's only shonen ai(light stuff) for the most part. The only hard yaoi(i.e. actual sex) is in the last chapter, which is just an extra, so you don't have to read that if you don't like that kinda stuff.=)

Here's the link to where I read it at mangafox: www.mangafox.com/manga/lovers_…
So, if any of my old watchers are reading this, you know that I had left Deviant Art for about a year and a half(or something like that). During that time, I hadn't really drawn much, so I don't think my drawing skills haven't improved that much( except maybe faces, cuz that's all I draw when I doodle). But I recently got a tablet and Sai and Photoshop, so now I can color my art digitally, and I think that makes a world of difference. Even if the lineart is crappy, if you color it well enough it will look awesome(or that's what I think at least:shrug:)

Being back on deviant art is kinda wierd, cuz everything is so different. Like llamas and journal skins and points.:omfg: I also noticed that most of my old DA friends had left me, which made me a bit sad, but it's understandable seeing as I was gone for so long. :sarcasticclap:

So all in all it feels like a fresh start.:yawnstretch:
I've cleaned my gallery up and deleted my more hideous works. I'll start to make new friends and improve my skills until the point where I can sell prints(my goal is to make posters, but idk how big the prints can get) I'm also joining groups now. :meow:

It feels refreshing.=)

Also IT'S SPRING! THANK GOD! NO MORE WINTER!!!:boogie:
