New R/C Illustration and 2 cuts on the fingers.

I'm not done with Hellsing, Sir Integra yet, but the damn details were killing me, so I'm putting it on hold. While I was reading Mai Otome (Mai Z-HiME) I saw a good illustration to do it so I did. It's of the Gakuenchou Natsuki Kruger and Meister Shizuru Viola.. LOL.

I went through the Hellsing one without any cuts or nicks, but this one, much smaller and shorter amout of time that I'm working on it, I already got 2 cuts. Nice. Bled all over the damn thing too.

Saw first ep of Mai Otome Zwei and I can't wait for fansub, cause I can't understant Japanese!! It looked totally awesome though. And when Natsuki came around asking if they could contact Shizuru (I assumed) and one of the Aswald said something about pretty girl she was scolding at her. It was funny. In the manga it was made pretty clear that they were together. I also can't wait for vol 5 of the manga.

Very interesting beginning all the Meister Otome get together to either destroy or deviate the meteorite, Haruka was as usual, loud and up front. (I didn't see Shizuru 'Kyouen no Marasakizoushou' there though, maybe she was since she wasn't with Natsuki) And while the weapons they use destroyed part of the meteorite Arika went after the big chuck that got away and destroyed it.

Well, that, of course, the beginning of trouble.

We get to see Natsuki and Shizuru in swimsuits again. :) Got to see Miss Maria in her young form and get her butt kicked. Good to see that they tried to prevent the same thing happened before by created the surrogate system for the Pillar.

I'm very much looking forward to the rest of the OVA.

Just got the entire series of Fullmetal Alchemist on dvd in a leather case. I actually contemplating ordering it from, but well, just too many so when I saw this and it was on sale it was perfect. :) I'm happy about it.

Kannazuki no Miko was also licenced here, but not release yet, I can't wait, but if it's too long I might just order it, least waiting for the slow ass release here. Mai Otome is also going to get release, of course I'll get that as well.

I'm listening to Bitemarks and Bloodstain by Finch

Too bad they broke up, oh well.

My friend lend me Meitantei Hokenshitsu No Obasan by Akiko Miyawaki. I love this manga, at one time I did have it, but well, away for 8 years meant that my stuffs got dispersed all over the place and as a result, I lost a lot of the manga, this one was no exception. At least someone has the entire thing and I get to read it again. :)

I finished Mai HiME (Hightly Advance Materializing Equipment) and poor Shizuru. Her psychotic episode was understandable, really. I mean, being exposed and rejected like that would've driven anyone into madness. And when they disappeared together...

As for Natsuki for her to realize that Shizuru was her important person and have Duran just as big as Kiyohime, a testament to how strongly she felt for Shizuru and even though I'm pretty much a ShizNat fan, still if I wasn't it would've given me a not so small pause and think about it. And so, I'd like to think that Shizuru get the girl at the end, seeing how when Mai said that love is good and get an agreement from Natsuki whom sitting beside Shizuru (and the way it was shown in the scene too) So, I think we are safe to assume that they are together. Or at least on their way.

I'm writing ShizNat fanfic, it was meant to be dabble at first, but well, now that it is over 8 pages long, I guess it isn't a dabble anymore. LOL.

We went on a little shopping trip today.

The store is close for renovation, thus I had to go and take a look at some material, I f**king hate car ride, especially with seat like the one I had to sit in today. Man, my neck was killing me, and my back just wanna divorce from my body.

As for the material, I didnt get it, we just got some sample so mom could take a look before we order. Other stuff, however... So, I got 1/6 scale Saber in a dress with sandle from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, Jack Skeleton latern head, 1 pinky street. And I got the entire series of Kiddy Grade. After that it's shopping mall, not really a place I spend my time really, I prefer to be in some bookstore than a mall, but I did get a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. Enough spending for a day, I did, for just a moment, wanting to get Tenjou Tenge, but I decided not to, the main character annoyed the hell out of me, thus I don't really wanna see it.

I'm watching Animal Precinct at the moment, and I'm yet again, amazed at how cruel and careless people can be. Animal aren't property, they are living things, I mean, dude if you wanna get a pet, take care of it! If you don't want it, give it to someone that does. Hard concept? I think not.

I'm watching Mai Otome, again, well, I pick and choose which ep I'm watching. I enjoy the show, quite a lot, even though my usual favorite tend to run towards blood guts and gore, but this one got lots of violence without the above :) And now my mom wants Shizuru Viola in Graceful Amethys robe. ha ha ha

I'm still crazy about Shizuru.

Yup, ShizNat.

I'm waiting for the dvd to come out, and well, I get kinda annoyed now. *sigh* in the mean time I'm suppose to be finishing up a website for a friend. It's pretty simple and clean, just the way my friend's mom wanted. Not that I get pay for that thing, but what the hell. I kinda volunteered becaues I felt bad for her, thus me in this position, although I pretty much got it done and she said ok, except the color, which I've changed and I'll drop it for her to take a look before I slice and dice.

So, I'm writing a little ShizNat, a piece of fluff really, just felt like they deserve it. Although my usual line of thought would go toward the angst path, but hey I can work it all out before I decide if I wanna post it and where.

I'm back to working out, yeah I needed it and also I have to get my money worth. Last night I was on the machine for about 20 min before we do the whole weight lift thing and then it's badminton for 3 games, not that I'm all psych about it, I'd rather we go play squash, but whatever. I think if I get the time I'll go play squash for maybe an hour. If I have the time. Nothing is certain about my schedule these days, it's kinda sad.

Arggggggggggggg I want my Mai HiME now!!!!

November 05, 2006

I got some manga today.

Volume 33 of Ushio and Tora, the final volume!!

I've been reading this for well, a long while and (say 10 years) and I'm quite sad that it's over now. On one hand I wanted it to go one, but on the other, it's about time it's finish. Ended just how I thought it would, which is a good thing, 'cause being a sadist that I am I would've make them all die!! LOL. But that's just me and it's a good thing that the author wasn't me.

Got all 40 volumes of 3x3 eyes. All I can say is it's about time! The damn thing was so long and well, just so many up and down and up and down some more. It's like die already. But then I do enjoy it once I get to read them all in one sitting and not having to wait for months.

Got volume 3 of Soryunden (the legend of dragon kings) I'd love it more with Clamp's illustration, but then you can't have everything.

I just rewatched vol 4 and 5 of Mai HiME dvd. Man I want the rest already. Too bad Shizuru didn't get her Natsuki in this one... At least she got her in Mai Otome. The girl gotta get her girl after all that heartbreak, come on. I like Shizuru, she's awesome. I think I'm in love!! Such tragic love.

I still didn't get to watch all Bakuretsu Tenchi, despite the fact that I have the entire series sitting on my shelves for a while now. And I still didn't watch Fate/Stay Night, well, I got to ep 14 and didn't get the see the rest yet. I saw Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori though. The first ep was... well, that just rang true. People will do one of the two things when seeing other people get bullied. Join in, or ignore. very few would step in and try to stop it. I'm looking forward to the rest. We see more of Emma Ai on this one than the first time around. I wish they pay more attention to her than they did. Good music too.

who are those little girls in pain
just trapped in caste of dark side of the moon
twelve of them shining bright in vain
like flowers that blossom just once in years
they're dancing in the shadow like whispers of love
just dreaming of place where they're free as dove
they've never been allowed to love in this cursed cage
it's only the fairytale they believe

[Alyssa S. Mai HiME]
current obsession : Shizuru/Natsuki

I've just finished watching Mai Otome (Mai Z-HiME) And I would've liked to see the pair kiss just once. I mean, it's pretty obvious and I'm happy that the Shizuru/Natsuki relationship was realized here.

Shizuru was awesome. LOL

To love that much and get nothing in return would've make anyone crazy.

Nagi was nothing more than a little worm, someone should cut him in half and see if he could grow back. Or maybe not, 2 Nagi would've been more annoying.

Anyway, I'm still waiting for the rest of Mai HiME, cause I only got to volume 5 on dvd which is episode 20. I can't wait to see the rest. Although I know it won't be much of a happy ending. But then nothing I watch seems to have happy ending and I quite like it that way.

My friend is back from 2 months hiatus. I wish I could go on one, but not possible. But then I couldn't do what she did anyhow. I prefer staying home with my internet connection and my books, movies and anime. So, give me a week of not having to take anyone anywhere and not going to the store would make me a very happy camper. (happy as a clam I tell you)

So, I'm waiting for Marimite OVA to come out, in the mean time I think I'm gonna put in that order for new Merry Gentry series as well as some Clair McNab books. I'm still reading A Matter of Degree, only because I stopped reading last week to do something else, which is why I didn't finish it in 2 days like I normally would. At least I got things waiting to be read, much better than having nothing to read at all.
