[sticky entry] Sticky: Intro

To New People, Random Wanderers, and Possible Lurkers: Hello! Welcome! This is my personal journal, so you will find life stuff in addition to fandom fangirling here. Note that I ramble a lot and tend to be a bit random, especially when I'm tired. I don't post nearly as much these days as I used to, but when I do, they tend to be really long. No worries, I use cuts. ^_^

About Me: See my profile. Read some entries. If you still have questions, feel free to ask me. I promise I won't bite too hard.

Before anybody asks: No, I do not speak German. When I was trying to come up with a new username ages and ages ago, I just put the word "lost" into a translator under several different languages and thought that "verloren" sounded the coolest.

I also don't speak Japanese. My default icon is, again, just a result of random searching. It looks cool. It means "be lost", which goes with my username. That's all.

I keep up much better with my Tumblr these days than with DW, so you're free to check me out or follow me over there.


Another random note: If you're looking for my fic, please go to my LJ writing journal at [livejournal.com profile] vfic83 or my AO3. I have a comm here on DW, but it's nowhere near up to speed, so don't bother. ^_^;;;

Belated Holiday Cards?

Alright, everyone. So I kind of missed the boat on the whole holiday card thing because of stuff that I'm not going to get into right now- but if anyone wants a late card from me, comments on this are screened, so go ahead and put one here with your name and address (email also acceptable if you’re more comfortable with that: verloren1983@hotmail.com). Yes, even if you’ve given it to me before. I can’t keep track of where all you people live. ;)

NaBloPoMo Day 2

Hello again! For those of you not on my f-list, I'm attempting to do NaBloPoMo again. I'm taking a little bit of a different approach this time, though, in that I'm doing a 30 day picture meme. Some of them won't be new pictures just because of the nature of the thing and because I'm lazy, but whatever. Some entries will be f-locked because they show either me or other people in my life and yeah, I'd rather not go there, but most will be open. So anyway, moving on.

DAY 2- WHAT I WORE

This awesome shirt and some jeans. ^_^

Media Post!

Reminder that the Reading Rainbow kickstarter ends in a few days. This deserves ALL THE MONIES, so I just figured I'd throw it out there one more time. ^_~

★ What I'm intending on at least trying for midsummer release anime:
-Free! Eternal Summer (obviously)
-Majimoji Rurumo
-Love Stage!! (This one's mostly because one of the MC's has Nagisa's VA, not gonna lie)
-Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus (I would ignore this, but it looks like they're retconning season 2 and using manga material, so I'll give them another chance)
-Persona 4 Golden (maybe, I'll probably wait and see what happens with this one, I don't see much point in watching it unless it's significantly different from the original anime)
-And obviously still watching Baby Steps (even though Takasaki's voice annoys the living hell out of me for some reason) and Haikyuu!! (which I'm forever misspelling XD)

★ I may have restarted Once Upon a Time (sort of, I was only a couple of episodes into it to begin with). I just started episode 10 of the first season. Time will tell if this was a good idea or not. ^_^;;;

★ My 3DS has decided that it doesn't want to work- it starts to turn on, but then before any screens actually come up, it makes a popping noise and turns off. It has also stopped lighting up when I plug it in. Taking out the battery for a while and putting it back in was absolutely no help. Soooo I have to send it off to Nintendo and hopefully they can fix it. It's going to take a month to get it back probably, since they're apparently backed up, but the guy on the phone was super nice and helpful, so that's a plus. I just hope it's nothing I did. It -was- in my backpack the other day when it was pouring outside? <_< But then, my laptop was also in my bag and my laptop is perfect, so.... I don't know. But it's apparently a common enough problem that if you go to the troubleshooting thing on Nintendo's website, it doesn't even TRY to have you troubleshoot- it just goes, yeeeeeeeah, you need to call us, here's the number. XD And when I told the guy on the phone what the issue was, his initial reaction was like, "......oh." He also kept hesitating after the "r" when he was saying it needs to be repaired- like he was actually thinking "replaced." Which was NOT reassuring.  ;~; But we'll see. Hopefully it's not as catastrophic as I'm imagining. (I'm copying the info on my SD card just in case, though.)

★ I've been spending WAY too much time playing a text-based game called Corruption of Champions and having a lot of fun with it, for the most part. It's dark and extremely twisted and very, very NSFW but I kind of love it anyway. I'm pretty sure that makes me a terrible person. XD (Krim, I think you would like this, by the way. You can either play it in your browser or download it, both links are here. And although you DO have to pick male or female as a gender in character creation, you can start out with all variety of parts you want and you can change them at will.)

Random Things

- Haven't touched NPT in a week, though I've been poking at other things that don't actually have due dates. Oops. ^_^;;;

- Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream mixed with chocolate almond milk makes the best freaking milkshakes ever. Just sayin'. (It's probably roughly the same with regular chocolate milk, but the almond is what I had on hand, so.)

- The USB game controller I bought specifically for The Walking Dead? Also works with my PSP emulator. *screech* Which makes Persona 3 about 1000 times easier to navigate, let me tell you. I would say that this is clearly the mark of the end of any productivity I might've had this summer except for one thing: my emulator crashes pretty much anytime I've actually managed to do anything useful, before I can save. >_<

- Finished Natsume- four seasons and two OVA's. I'll be honest with you, I was starting to get bored with it toward the end because it's the same thing every episode. Overall fairly enjoyable, and certainly not the worst thing I've ever seen, but meh. (I did come away from it shipping Natsume/Natori and Natsume/Tanuma. Mostly Natsume/Natori. Fuck, they weren't subtle about that, were they?)

- Also finished Akuma no Riddle. I'm... not sure what to think? I'm sitting here trying to decide what I should rate it on MAL, and I don't know. The whole thing was kind of meh, and then the last episode was a huge WTF. I think I wanted to like it a lot more than I did. Ehhhh I think 5/10 is fair.

- Debating watching Free! again before the second season starts... probably a bad idea though, I already have enough new stuff I'm trying to get through to justify re-watching something. Not like it has a complicated plot or anything. XD

- "Summer hours" start for the library as of July 1st, which cuts the time I can spend there as a safe place to avoid dealing with people I don't want to deal with. Ungh. I suppose that means more time at home reading manga and playing games and watching things that I've downloaded previously? XD

- I'm actually getting a bit of a farmer's tan on my arms from walking to the library all the time in t-shirts. XD Oops? Kind of weird, because I burn quickly, so I don't generally tan. (Well, that and I'm a homebody/don't like heat, so I usually stay inside most of the summer. XD)

Basically I'm just zoning out here, don't mind me

I've been called a Hikago BNF twice recently- once by someone I don't even know, but who apparently knows me. Can I tell you how weird that is? It's fucking weird. I'd ask if that meant that I need to start throwing random hissy fits and collecting minions to do my evil bidding, but the same things that probably make me a BNF also make at least half the of currently active fandom BNF's, so that probably won't fly. XD Guess I'll have to be a nice one. Come on, what fun is that?

(The minions would be nice, though, not gonna lie.)

Really regretting not asking for Hikaru/Waya for the Hikago exchange, because I've been hit by "ZOMG WANT THAT" really hard lately completely at random, and there's just not that much of it. Then again, asking for it wouldn't have necessarily meant I would've gotten it, either. Oh well.  Hopefully other people will write it and I'll be able to enjoy. ^_~ (Or, yanno, if people want to write it in the meantime, I certainly won't object. :P)

Speaking of the Hikago exchange: the good news is that I've reached the minimum word requirement, at least according to Open Office. The bad news is that it's nowhere close to done. What happened to my ability to write short fic? ARGH. (Well, okay, admittedly it would go faster if I wasn't going about it sideways, but that's what kind of has to happen with what was asked for, soooooo I'm doing my best to actually do what my recipient wants. ^_^;;; )

Pride was today. \o/ It was pretty fun, hung out with some people, though also overwhelming for someone as introverted as I am. I'm totally freaking EXHAUSTED now and it's honestly probably going to take me at least a week of avoiding IRL interaction to recover psychologically. (Notably, there was a table for a mental health organization or whatever- I grabbed a booklet on anxiety disorders. Heh. ^_^;;; ) On the upside, I got a really cute purple tank top with a rainbow butterfly on it. It's rainbowy but not in your face rainbowy. I'll have to try to remember to take a picture of it later. :D Also, Melissa Etheridge came over and did a song a cappella just for the hell of it since she was in the area for a concert anyway, which was awesome. In case you've ever wondered- she's amazing live. So now you know. ^_~ I also managed some free stuff, including a rainbow button with "Atheist" on it, some random stickers, and a few books. (For the curious-  Woman in Sexist Society: Studies in Power and Powerlessness, Two To Conquer by Marion Zimmer Bradley, and Boys Will Be Boys: Breaking the Link Between Masculinity and Violence.) I actually left about a half hour early and didn't go to any of the after parties- I thought about it, but the bottom line was that I was totally fried. So were the people I was with, so I would've had to go solo, which I'm not comfortable with anyway. It's just as well.

It's been a very rainy June so far, so naturally, there have been lots of mosquitoes out and I've been getting freaking EATEN ALIVE. Seriously, there are 8 bites just on my right foot alone. ;~; I've been trying to keep benadryl on the worst places which helps, but it still sucks and I'm still a mess. SO ITCHY. And I've been growing out my nails a little bit, so I'm doing a lot more damage by scratching than I normally would. One of the reasons I hate summer- bugs love me. Ver blood is apparently delicious. (And no, before anybody asks, things like Off that are supposed to keep bugs away have never worked for me, even when I was a kid. I would be outside with my family after everyone was coated with the stuff and I would literally be the only one getting bitten. Ugh ugh ugh.

And in other news, my diploma arrived in the mail yesterday! Wee! So now that's safely tucked away in its folder. Pretty cool. ^_^

Just in case anyone didn't see this and it's something you're interested in: Reading Rainbow kickstarter! Like a lot of people, I grew up with this show. They do such important work. The stats that 25% of kids grow up illiterate are horrifying and need to change, so donate and/or signal boost if you can. (As a side note, Reading Rainbow is apparently a few months older than  I am. That's... weird.)

God, the ED song for season 2 of Natsume is absolutely gorgeous. *_* Well, the ED in general, but the music in particular.  I actually really like the OP song, too. And snow bunny! <3 It's also highly entertaining that while Natsume is clearly still annoyed by Natori, he's also starting to get a little blushy around him, too. Cute, but guh, Natsume, find someone your own age to be blushy around, god.

I have, sadly, moved on to season 3, but on the upside- I've learned that the name of the couple who have taken Natsume in is Fujiwara, which basically had me cracking up. Go figure. (I don't think they said that before- I would've remembered something like that.)

I am now officially signed up for two exchanges and am attempting to work on stuff for the next round of BG (not to be posted anytime in the immediate future, nobody panic XD And even then, it's a totally different thing- you'll see what I mean). Oh, and even though the Shipswap thing was supposed to be a one-shot, I have a sequel/chapter 2 bunny that's insistently nomming on my brain. Plus one of the prompt/requests that I didn't end up with in the one exchange is also doing bad things in my head. Oops. On the upside- while I don't actually have any ideas for the exchanges yet, I'm working hard on those, and I adore at least one of the prompts that were given to me and have decided at least on a basic level what I'm doing for each. Sort of. NPT is going to be harder, not going to lie. Plot is required. :/ And, also on the upside, I can just sit on that prompt I didn't get and see if the writer assigned to that person actually writes that one. If they do, I'm home free and can just read~ If not, uh, I guess that's another one for the evil bunny list. XD

Just started watching season 2 of Orange Is the New Black- Piper still annoys the living fuck out of me. Yaaaaaaaay. -_-

I didn't end up calling about the audit because I was advised not to, but I responded to the notice online along with a bunch of pdf's (after an edit from Ai to get more to the point and get rid of the irritation that snuck in at the end, heh), so that's done. As I said to Ai, since I responded in a timely manner, hopefully they'll return the favor and not keep me in suspense for ages. Even more hopefully, they'll have good news. *fingers crossed*

★ In more RL stuff, I just went and looked up the academic calendar for the next school year (I'd been meaning to, but what finally kicked me in the ass was that I needed to know when I was going back so I could tell the loan people, so they don't start sending me bills in November. So now that's taken care of, I'm just waiting for a confirmation email from them on that.). It's sort of weird, because I actually get days or at least SOME time off for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur now, which has never actually happened to me (I've never been at a school where they acknowledged religious holidays that weren't Christian). So in the fall at least, there's a decent spread of days off. AND I GET A REAL SPRING BREAK! I'm so stupidly excited about this, I can't even explain it. Both of my years in college, we've gotten two or three days for spring break, so having a full week is a BIG DEAL. It's kind of early, though- mid March, which kind of sucks because here in New York, the weather is still super crappy at that point in the year. But whatever. IT'S A WEEK. <3

★ Aaaaaaand last but not least, because Cecilia Tan is evil, I'm going to drop this link here for Daron's Guitar Chronicles. It's an LGBTQ themed web serial and is fabulous and I encourage you all to read it. Strongly encourage. *eyeballs* Nah, I'm kidding, obviously to each their own and whatnot and you don't have to if you don't want to. :P

Okay, so now for a few general updatey things!

No, I didn't gather up the courage to call about the tax thing yesterday. I'll try again Monday. *sheepish*

Only a chapter or two away from finishing Catching Fire. I'm reserving commentary until after I finish Mockingjay, but for now I'll just say that I still kind of like the movies better, not gonna lie. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME, WHAT THE HELL.

I also have a bunch of other books out, including The Witches of Eastwick (because I love John Updike's short stories) and The Joy Luck Club (since I've read probably about half of it through various classes anyway at this point, might as well just finish the damn thing- also, I do like what I've read so far). So we'll see how those go, too. ALL THE READING. :D

So somewhere around... what, January or February, I realized that there was a lot more to Natsume Yuujinchou than I had previously thought- I'd only ever seen the first season, which was a long time ago, and there are actually FOUR. So I set off then to work on downloading everything. Well, I finally finished that recently and as of last night, rewatched season 1. Season 2 will start tonight. Wee! It should be fun. Also, the cute little boy fox should be in EVERY EPISODE EVER. Actually, maybe that wouldn't be a good idea, I'd probably die of squee. XD

Gaming hasn't really been happening. Oops. ^_^;;;

★ On the upside, I haven't had coffee in two full weeks as of today. Wee! On the downside, I haven't had coffee in two weeks. XD No, really, it's fine. I had a massive migraine the first couple of days, but then it eased off. It's just rough on days like today where it seems like I didn't sleep well, that's all. XD

★ (Edit- I remembered something after the fact, of course) Grades came in, by the way- all A's. Phew. ^_^;;; So that means that I'm transferring with a cumulative 3.93 GPA. Not too shabby.

I feel like there should be something else here, but the library is closing soon, so I need to go. Hopefully will have something interesting to report soon. \o

The promised five questions from [personal profile] chagrined ! If you want questions, let me know and I'll come up with something. Probably. XD

1. What is your favorite baseball moment in Oofuri?
Oh man, I don't even know. I love when Tajima is telling everyone when to steal, does that count? XD

2. What types of porn do you most like to write?
Hmm. I had to think about this one a bit. I think one of the things I most like to write is when there's some kind of back and forth exchange going on- whether it's struggling for control (*cough*HikaruandAkira*cough*) or talking or whatever. Consent is an absolute must for me, which is probably why you often see repeated checking in with my fic, sometimes even to the point of annoying the character being asked. Um...  I like writing blow job fic, for some reason? And I love writing penetrative sex. It's awesome (probably because *cough* that's how I feel about it in general? XD), even though yes, I know that not everyone likes it or does it and I try to represent that as well. I think that sort of answered the question?

3. What's a pairing you ship but have never written a fic for?
Uh..... Ogata/Isumi? I just have a hard time writing Ogata in general, really. It's why I rarely write him, and when I do, it's just a cameo. XD

4. What's the best vacation you've ever gone on?
When I went to go visit my older sister in Texas in... what, 2010? I went with my younger sister, and even though we were kept busy with all sorts of things (museum/beach/concert/etcetcetc), it was a lot of fun. I actually got to swim in the ocean! :D And I discovered the fun of multiplayer Super Mario Wii. :P

5. Do you have any entertaining injury stories?
I wasn't one of those kids that played rough- I was the kid in the corner with a book- so I don't really have many injury stories at all. I've never broken anything. The only thing I can think of is the time I sprained my ankle. This was YEARS ago. My younger sister and I were walking home from someplace, I don't remember where. It was winter. We saw a plow coming up behind us and didn't want to get a bunch of snow shoved on us, as plows tend to do on sidewalks, plus we were dumbasses, so we started rushing to get to a driveway or something to get out of the way. Well, I slipped and fell, and it turned out that I sprained my ankle badly enough that the doctor said it would've been better if I'd just straight up broken it. So yeah, that was fun.

I guess there was also the time that I was ridiculously drunk and went to lean back and accidentally banged my head on a coffee table REALLY hard. I woke up the next morning with the migraine from hell and so many bruises, I didn't even know what the hell had happened. I'm still not sure, and I'm not entirely sure I want to know. O_O

So I have a short list of questions from Krim to get through, and I should probably do at least a minor update, but I've got to talk through this first, because it's the thing that's weighing most heavily on my brain as of this afternoon.

First thing's first- I've been basically ignoring DW lately, so if you've posted anything here and nowhere else that I follow in the last... oh, I don't know, probably month or so that I should know, you might want to tell me. I started trying to catch up and gave up. Apologies. School completely ate me. XD

I'm not going to try to do a whole update since I last posted- it's basically a lot of freaking out and paper writing and finals and whatnot. Nothing terribly interesting. I don't know how it all went because grades aren't due until Monday, so we'll see how that goes. :P It was kind of funny, though- I had two finals this semester, right? Philosophy and Human Sexuality. I was out of BOTH finals in roughly fifteen minutes. Seriously. My total final-taking time was about a half hour. Nice way to end the semester, I guess.

Read more... )

Anyway, the library closes really soon and I have two books that I've checked out (The Hunger Games and Struck By Lightning, if anyone's curious), plus I'm hungry and have a caffeine headache, so I'm going to get going. Later! I should be able to be around a bit more now, at least over the summer anyway. :P

Dear Not Prime Time Author (NPT Letter)

Dear Not Prime Time Author,
You. Are. Awesome. <3 Just for participating, but also for coming to find this, possibly multiple times because I didn't have this done before assignments went out. Sorry about that.

So if you don't know me- I'm Ver. Hi! *waves*

Generally, I'm a pretty easygoing kind of fic reader. I read a lot of different kinds of things, so mainly, just write what makes you happy and that you can have fun with. Fics are always better when you can tell the person writing it enjoyed it. :) (That being said, I would ask that you check out the “do not want” section before you do that, just in case.)

I know this letter may look a little scary at first glance, but just keep in mind that I'm long-winded. XD Everything here minus the DNW is just suggestion and idea. You can honestly ignore most of this and do whatever your little heart desires, and I encourage it if that's what you want to do.

Love,
Ver/verloren1983

More media/fandom, because apparently the thing to do is to start a bunch of random stuff instead of doing actual work!

★ Did I ever mention on here that I signed up for shipswap? Well, in any event, I signed up for shipswap because I'm clearly INSANE and Liz is a dirty enabler. Naturally, I got matched up on the fandom I felt least comfortable with. Ungh. I have something of an idea, but haven't written much yet, it's still forming in my head. And I think I'll have to rewrite most of what I've written anyway, because the pairing I intended to write is... not the one my brain seems interested in doing all of a sudden. It uses some of the same idea, but since one of the main characters is different, obviously the fic will be different. Fuck.

★ Aaaand then there's blind_go, which I still have no idea what I'm doing for that. I've basically given it up as a lost cause at this point. The thing is, there ARE bunnies in the queue that would probably make the word limit, it's just having the time/energy to deal with them. >_<

★ Finished the anime of Oofuri. Thoughts, though not many because the second season was short:
-Still not shipping Abe/Mihashi. It's better where I maybe wouldn't mind reading fic of it (maybe), but meeeeeeh. Actually, that one word pretty much covers that ship for me. Meh. That may change as I get further along in the story with the manga, but as of right now, I don't see it happening- it's probably a safe bet that if I don't ship it even a little after two seasons, I'm probably not going to ship it. (LMAO, now watch me be wrong, since I've said that. XD)
-Incredibly disappointed that the fanboy only showed up briefly in the first episode of the second season. I WANTED MORE SHIPFUEL, DAMMIT. XD No, really, it's okay, I'll live. XD Honestly, what I've walked away shipping the most is Tajima/Mihashi. I dunno, BFF's are one of the things I tend to ship the hardest, and they hit that button SO MUCH. Even if it's totally casual and they're just fooling around, so it's not an endgame ship for me. I don't ship it to the point of wanting to write fic for it, but I'm not going to rule that out entirely, either. We'll see- but I'm certainly not going to promise anything.
-My first reaction upon finishing the last episode- "that's it?" I was so annoyed that they ended it there. XD Luckily for me there's the manga, which I'm working on downloading.
Aaaaand that's it for gay baseball for the time being. ^_^;;; I'm going to be honest and say it's probably going to be a while before I start the manga- partially because I'm otherwise busy, partially because I'm still downloading it, and partially because I'm on a video kick and not a manga kick- but I'll get to it. Mostly because I want that part where Tajima and Mihashi share porn and stuff, not gonna lie. XD

★ I've now watched the first two episodes of Game of Thrones, because it keeps coming up in conversation lately and so it's annoying to have to keep saying that I haven't seen it. I... think I'm too squeamish for this show. Fucking hell. I keep having to pause it or mute it and look away because I just. Urgh. I love Tyrion, like King whatshisface (see, me being bad with names isn't just an anime thing! XD)- though admittedly that might be because I like the actor- am so far neutral about Snow and um... climber kid (Bran?), and pretty much hate everyone else. I think I might grow to like the blonde chick with the creepy brother, though. We'll see. I'm trying to withhold overall judgment until finishing the first season, and then we'll see where I sit on everything and I'll decide if I want to continue watching it.

★ Started Nobuta wo Produce over again. I only ever got about an episode and a half through it before, so being that I've seen eight, I'm doing way better this time. It's... completely ridiculous, but generally not in a bad way except that literally all of the adults except one are fucking useless morons (and even then, she's nuts). Also the whole thing where Akira falls in love with Nobuta feels incredibly forced- he is SO crushing on Shuji it's not even funny. It's so obvious with how he's constantly touching him, even right from the beginning (and he doesn't do that with anyone else). I'm not really sure why everyone wants Shuji when he's scary skinny like that. O_o Seriously, he's skeletal, it's disturbing. Shuji is also a complete dick. XD Akira is irritating, but gets less so as the episodes go on. I only have two more, so we'll see. I'm honestly of two minds on this- sometimes I really enjoy it, and then sometimes I'm like, "fuck this show." XD

★ Also started Teen Wolf. It's um. *cough* It's as good as expected? <_< The only positive is that Scott is ridiculously adorkable (dumb as a rock, but adorkable)... otherwise, it has me facepalming from the stupidity approximately every five seconds. I'm still giving it a chance, but so far, I'm not holding my breath that I'll watch it for more than a season.

Okay, that's more than plenty for the time being, and I should probably get some reading done for English Lit anyway. (It's an actual STORY. Akira shock! XD)

Finally, a RL post! Imagine that!

Oh man, I've been so terrible about RL stuff. So here's the cliffsnotes on that, which I'm going to put under a cut because it got really long since it's been a long time. ^_^;;;

(no subject)

Ooooor, have another media post because I fail. XD

★ First thing's first- by the way, if you did this on Tumblr or don't have a 3DS, feel free to ignore this. XD I have a new 3DS friend code. (Long story short, I'm an idiot and left my 3DS on a bus and someone else took it, along with the Pokemon game that was in it, so I replaced the system, ungh. Still working on replacing the game. Luckily Nintendo has a promo for a free one, but it's a download and those take FOREVER on public wifi.) If you want to add it, feel free! (2423-3967-2356) I’d like yours also, even if I had it before, because I don’t have it anymore. XD I’ll add you as soon as I can (might be a few days, just as a heads up). <3

★ Persona 4 Arena came in the mail from Gamefly and I've poked at story mode a bit. I'm not sure I would buy it, though? I fucking love Kanji, he's great, but being that I'm an unrepentant button masher when it comes to fighting games, this game is actually really unexpectedly hard. I've barely done anything with it, but I should probably send it back before I forget about it. XD

★ I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale a few weeks ago. It's something easy I can do when I don't feel like staring at my 3DS screen first thing in the morning, because I don't always. It's alright. I'm not fangirling over it or anything, but I suppose it's reasonably entertaining. *shrug* I'm not particularly attached to it one way or the other, really. My favorite parts are when Cecil breaks his radio reporter character and actually shows some of his personality, but that's me. I'm currently two episodes behind, but I'll probably keep listening to it because... well, it's reasonably entertaining.

★ Alright, so I finished the first season of Oofuri. Thoughts for Krim:
-I was nervous after Krim told me that most of the series is one game, but actually? It was fine. Don't ask me to explain why that's okay, but I get irritated if other games last more than two or three episodes. I have absolutely no idea. XD I'm just grateful that I wasn't climbing up the walls.
-Tajima and Izumi are so cute with their freckles! <3 I actually for a while kept mixing them up at bat because of this until I realized that Izumi's are on his cheeks and Tajima's are on his nose. Anyway. They are both adorable, though Tajima is still totally my favorite.
-Luckily, Mihashi is annoying me much less now and my fury has calmed down to an exasperated amusement. Part of this is the realization that he wouldn't be nearly so bad if Abe wasn't screaming at him half the time. I would probably be freaking out too. XD (Abe, stop being a socially inept dick, please.)
-Because I said I'd mention it- the second OP is okay. I'm not in love with it, but I don't hate it, either. *shrug*
-Holy shit, totally shipping Tajima and that redheaded kid from Tousei that was desperately fanboying him (Nakazawa, apparently). So fucking adorable. SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME THERE'S FIC.
-As a side note on shipping, I would also not be adverse to Kanou/Mihashi. :P
-During one particular scene which I won't give away the details of, I know it was supposed to be an emotional kind of thing, but all I could think about was THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL. Seriously, I had Tom Hanks in my head the entire time. I don't think that was the intention. Oops. XD
-This may be showing some cultural ignorance on my part, but hey, you don't learn if you don't ask, right? ...does anybody know why the Tousei band kept playing "Yankee Doodle"? Is it a different song over there (like how "God Save the Queen" and "My Country, Tis of Thee" have the same melody but are completely different), or is it just something that's kind of leftover from the US, since baseball originated here? I'm curious and would like to know. :P

★ On Kuroko: Murasakibara, I want to like you because I like your voice actor (Isumi!), but you are SUCH AN ASSHOLE. Gah. >_<

Speaking of, I've been thinking a lot about voices the last several episodes of Kuroko. It's funny how it's gotten to a point where I've seen enough anime that given a character, there's a fairly decent chance that I know at least one other thing that their VA has done. It helps that for Kuroko at least, a lot of the actors have worked together on other things. XD Aomine and Alex are obviously Atobe and Fuji from Prince of Tennis, respectively, and there are several that are in Fairy Tail or Silver Spoon or other things. Generally I'm pretty decent at recognizing voices (though it may take me a bit- I think it was the second episode Alex was in that I realized she was Fuji), but the one surprise, aside from Murasakibara which I already mentioned? Kise. Kise, who is also Hachiken in Silver Spoon, and also Takizawa in Eden of the East. O_O I never in a million years would've guessed. Kise's VA is seriously talented. :D (Although, of course now that I know this, it seems obvious, so maybe I was just being a derp?)


Alright, I have to go deal with club stuff, but I'll hopefully write again, uh, soonish. Maybe a RL update before the end of the semester? It would be nice, right? ^_^;;;;;;;
