I never understand retail therapy. When I have things weighing my mind, I feel like whatever I buy will just disappoint me in the long run. Or is it because I pay for my own goods and am not at all swimming in money?



On another note, found a link to a Gundam 00 novel 1 review, and this part is interesting:Afterword...Collapse )
Still planning to wait until all 8 volumes are out before ordering. +_+

4th Seiyuu Awards result
Aww, Saito Chiwa doesn't win :(. Ono Daisuke predictably wins. K-ON girls are also predictable. Pleasantly surprised that Miki Shinichirou wins, if more for Lockon (I still prefer Ohkawa Toru for Roy, although Miki's Roy has grown on me). I've written before, though I don't remember where, that 00 S2 episode 20 alone is enough to make MikiShin a serious contender for Best Supporting Male this year. A part of what sold me on Lyle and Lyle/Anew are the voice actors, and I realize it in full when watching the unbearable dub!Anew.

Saiga Mitsuki for Overseas seems out of nowhere though. I thought it'd be FukuJun for sure.

Ganked from levy because I really don't draw as often as I should anymore.

First ten people that get here, comment with a pairing from a fandom I know - or at least, barely know...XD - and a prompt.

I'll draw them all - maybe not in time for Valentine, but still..- with fluff and love ...! <3

I'm randomly permabanned from 4chan with "No reason available - please contact a moderator on #4chan @ irc" but IRC was useless. 'Cept there's another person who got randomly banned so perhaps there's something wrong in the server. It doesn't seem like an IP range ban because the person's in the US. Ah well, maybe it's a sign for me to use my time more productively.

Am I the only person who really hate it when people use fanart for icons without crediting, and then ask people who use the icons to credit them? Personally, I don't use fanart for icons, unless I draw it myself or get permission from the fanartist, but I can tolerate at least if people credit properly.

actually not too tl;drCollapse )

EPIC TEARS T_T

Oda's taking a break again next week but it's okay, drawing all those detailed full panels with 1212398 pirates and marines in it must take a lot of time.

The History of Scanlation.

Reading that, I realize I've experienced the scanlation scene from really early, around 2000. Not as far back as the Usenet days, but The Nameless Manga Translation Site, Tales of the Swirly-Eyed Samurai, Mangascans and MangaScreener are definitely familiar names. I can still remember days where before I had my own computer, I had to utilize CD-RWs because 3.5" floppy disks can't carry a lot of manga. When groups would stop scanlating stuff because they're licensed, or deliberately make it low-quality or with huge watermarks so as not to deter people from buying the actual tankoubon. At that time, getting raws before the magazine is published in Japan like what happens now is something unthinkable.

One of the interesting trends is that shounen groups now mostly abandon the old model of having a group website and operate mainly in manga aggregator sites like MangaHelpers and MangaShare, while shoujo groups "retreat" to private forums and Livejournal communities where you need to join in order to download.

The amount of effort the author put into the article...no, PAPER, is amazing. To be able to get all those timeline, links and quotes.
