- Franky looks ridiculous.
- Nami's long hair is kinda nice.
- Boa Hancock's crush on Luffy is still hilarious. XD 
- For some reason, I feel like Zoro should get together with Perona. XDDD
- I still think Brooke serves no real purpose on the crew and is a waste of story space. haha

Just some things (in fandom) that make me happy at the moment - even though I'm not exactly hyper-happy or anything. Heh. Listing them as they come to mind.

1. "Two Worlds" & "You'll Be in My Heart", Sakamoto Masayuki.
Disney + V6's leader? I love it! Tarzan isn't my favourite Disney movie, but I still like the music lots. :) And Sakamoto's voice! I'm starting to wonder if he isn't actually a better singer than Ohno. (Of course, that could be in part to his age/experience, since V6 started 5 years before Arashi did.) But he's at least on par with Riida.

I am so addicted to this song at the moment. It's so relaxing and sort of "calmly happy." I can practically see V6's Voyager con performance of this song in my head whenever I hear it. *twirl, side-step, twirl* *finger dance* *bow* It's nice! Go download it if you don't believe me. [profile] snoew  agrees with me - don't you, snoew? :P

3. Hana Yori Dango trailer
All I can say is: KYA~~~
Still not too fond of the Doumyouji hair (although when it's properly curled it doesn't look as bad as half-curled and all-over-the-place like in some recent photoshoots -__- ), but Jun looks just... ♥

4. "DREAMIN' BLOOD", Kanjani8
Ah, the nostalgic, slightly 80s feel of this. And the lyrics. The melody. <3

5. Gakkou e Ikou MAX
Sakamoto and Ken evidently enjoying themselves way too much playing pranks on their kouhai, Nino being too wrapped up in his game to notice anything weird, Sho and Aiba gaily following whatever instruction was given to them, Ohno looking so happy at having his hairstyle praised, MatsuJun getting suspicious after the odd interview questions... XDD Oh, and the way Jun stared at the "girls" and then turned to stare at Sakamoto after finding out the "girls" were guys. LOL.
Can I just say this? I like how his reactions remind me of my own. hahahah! I'm not the type to react with a loud "EHH?" to shocks - although I might do it occasionally. Generally I just go for the disbelieving stare. XD

6. One Piece (manga)
This is really just getting better and better and better. The amount of new characters Oda-sensei has just thrown in! *gasp* Excitement! I wonder what the specialties of all these high-level pirates are. And the mystery surrounding that Engineer guy! Man... How does Oda-sensei keep it up??

7. Kanjani8's 47con
It was just huge fun. :D I wish I was much much more fluent in Japanese to understand the whole MC, but I gathered the gist of it I guess... But K8 was fun to watch! The Eito Ranger skit was priceless XD The hilarious opening song where Yoko forgot to introduce himself... Ryo's Heavenly Psycho performance with the audience... And *gasp* Ohkura drum solo! And Mamoritai! (which brings me to my next point)

8. Ohkura Tadayoshi
He is just way cool. His solo song at 47con! ♥ ♥ I heard he wrote the lyrics himself, which makes it doubly cool. I really liked how he ended the song by writing "mamoritai" in the air and how they superimposed the kana onto the screen as though he was leaving light trails with his finger. I'm not particularly crazy over drums or drummers, but I do think he's pretty good at it. :D

9. Okada Junichi
Mentioning drums starts the train of thought that goes: drums > musical instruments > piano > Okada. (Argh not enough shades of yellow/yellow-orange to use.) I can't get over his piano-playing in Hajimari. When I first watched Voyager con and that centre box platform turned round to reveal the grand piano and Okada playing... I just gaped and I think my heart skipped a beat. (lol) Then when he started to sing as well, I "died." It was like... "What? The guy acts, sings, seems to have an artistic bent and now he plays the piano too??" He's definitely my JE #3 now. (Gomen, Aibachan.)

(In case you think I'm forgetting all about Jun, let me just remind minna-san that I've expounded on MatsuJun's coolness before in various posts - to the point where I think I've said all I need to say and I think I really don't need to keep repeating myself to everyone already. :P I don't like repeating myself too much. haha)
EDIT: Right after I posted this and re-read it, it suddenly occurred to me that MatsuJun also dislikes having to repeat himself. font, you were really right when you said we're alike. ><

10. "ROCK THE HOUSE", Coming Century
Another song that I like for some bizarre reason. Probably the Voyager con performance helped. I liked what Kamisen wore for that. The dark sweaters/jackets they wore with the red and white flower print on parts was kinda nice.

Just ten for now. If I think of anything else or if I feel like it, I'll add on some more. ^^
elenniel: (matsujun2)
I finally got around to making a simple layout for my LJ Profile. Yeay. It wasn't that difficult after all. LOL. (If I'd found that difficult, I really shouldn't be working as a multimedia designer...)

Got a decent-sized version of that pic I was flailing over in my last post from [profile] aozora86 . Thanks, girl!! :D I'm gonna see about turning that into a wallpaper, although I've currently gotten rather attached the the new one I'm using (yes, it's still MatsuJun). Here have a - small - look if you like. (It looks better at its proper resolution - which I'll probably post in December.) Gives off this oddly calming effect somehow.

Am still mulling over how to go about my December wallpaper posts. Quite a few (well, three or four anyway) seem to think that the Twelve Days of Christmas thing is cool so I guess I'll most likely be doing that. Just a matter of exactly what I should do for "twelve days." Hm... I don't think I want to only post a new wallpaper or two every day for 12 days. Might get a bit dull. It is any easy way though. And in a sense, that's all everyone wants to see anyway. hahahah! Oh well. Nevertheless, any ideas?

elenniel: (sanji)
I loved chapter 55 of Ouran. I am so buying volume 12 when it comes out (hm, up to volume 9 in bookstores only so far... sigh). It looks like Haruhai's slowly (and somewhat unconsciously?) waking up to her feelings for Tamaki. :P
Loads of thanks to [profile] devel_icious for kindly getting the scanlations from the forum for me :)

elenniel: (rui)
It's promising!

I like what I've seen so far. :D Changed somewhat from the manga though...

Random 2: The nutty story 
[profile] devel_icious and I wrote was unexpectedly well-received on Endless-Dreamers and fanfiction.net, considering that it put a much-favoured character through hell. hahahaha (It's rare that anyone tries to torture Atobe in any way. But it was so FUN >:]  )

In other news:
Tezuka Phantom? Seriously? o_O I don't really like the name for the new move... Somehow feels weird to me.
I feel dread every time a new chapter comes out. I am so not looking forward to Tezuka losing. (Oh that a miracle may happen and he wins! :P :P )
And after reading Sai's translation on MangaHelpers......... :(
Don't tell me he's going to injure his arm again... Sigh. It'd be like a repeat of the game against Atobe. And I'd feel even more sore towards Sanada (sorry, Dev) because he's being so snarky and mean about it. Atobe's pompous and stuck up, but I can't see Sanada doing the same thing Atobe did at the end of the match if he won.
... argh.

Whoa. Grimmjaw's released form... Not exactly panther-like to me, but certainly rather suits Grimmjaw.

One Piece
"I'm already NEGATIVE!"
Windy, you were right - it's hilarious XD

Eyeshield 21
Eh, they won? Somehow I feel a bit 'lost'... Perhaps there were too many things going on in the game so I didn't really feel the flow properly. What a pity. Would've loved to see more brainwork from Hiruma and Takami.

elenniel: (tezuka)
Why... Did I go and read chapters 347 and 348?

I really shouldn't have. Not when I'm still all high-strung and upset over being pressured into finding jobs and stuff.

*more depressed than ever*

elenniel: (cinepuri tezuka)
Since I've just caught up on this week's round of manga and a bit of anime...

If it's really Tezuka vs Sanada in Singles 3...


Fairly easy to guess what's going to happen, if (1) Golden Pair has to win, and (2) Fuji has to win. (Echizen's obviously gonna win; that's a no-brainer.) I'd love the GP to win - they've had such tough luck. Fuji... I like him - favourite character #2 - but I think I'll live if he loses. But then perhaps it's too much to ask to have Tezuka win again...

*bigger sigh*

... You must all be thinking I'm a pathetic fangirl.
Be nice and excuse the sad bias of my mind in Tenipuri. hahah

*goes off to continue unpacking*

(Develicious, sorry to say, if the spoilers are true, and if Sanada wins, that Sanada fic I started for you is going to end up on hold until I get over it...... =p )

EDIT, 10.35pm: So it's true. *slinks off unhappily*
elenniel: (tezuka)
Yea right.

More like, half my time now is spent rendering (testing the light setup for the 3D scenes) so I've nothing much to do during that "waiting" period. So... I'm gonna talk about random stuff. hahahah

Then there's

elenniel: (shirota)
Prince of Tennis
Like munsung said on the forums, it's kinda funny to see the two kids running themselves silly all over the court for ONE point. XD
But, oh, Konomi-sensei, please don't drag this to more than 4 chapters? It'd be ridiculous if this one-point, unofficial game was given so very many chapters when one that could have been incredibly interesting (Tezuka vs Chitose) was only given what, two?
And I really don't want Nagoya to suddenly show up after defeating Rikkai. Total waste of Yukimura's development and overal anticipation of Rikkai.

One Piece
Anime - Well, that was... Silly. What was the point of inserting the extra rounds into the Davy Back Fight? Sigh. That Poison Ball-type game was silly. (I've played a similar - less deadly - game like that called Poison Ball. :P Used to be quite popular. And it is huge fun to play... Trying to avoid the ball and at the same time try to hit someone else with it.)
Manga - This ghost/zombie arc has its really creepy moments (for me), but I found it hilarious when the zombies popped up, threatening Luffy, Sanji, Zoro, Robin and Franky and then all five of them just flattened the zombies in a snap. hahahahah! And the contrast is too funny - Nami, Usopp and Chopper freaking out inside the castle, and the other five being totally calm and cool about zombies. LOL.
I wonder who's this Shichibukai though... Mysterious figure, Moria.
But One Piece seems to be moving at a more steady and interesting rate than Bleach. Bleach kinda goes up and down in terms of being really interesting each chapter. (Or maybe it's because I tend to find  chapters about Sado - and sometimes Ichigo too - kinda boring...)

Anime - I'm just waiting to see Hitsugaya, Matsumoto and Renji fight after the limit-lifting. :D
Manga - Woooo. Go Rukia! She's cool even without her zanpakutou. Her kidou skills aren't half bad. heheh. That would be so cool animated. But that Aaroniro... Creepy look. Two floating skulls in what looks like an inverted test tube for a head. "We are the Noveno Espada." WE. Creeps. :P

Seiran vs Sakujun in that deadly drinking game. Hm. Go Seiran! I wonder what's happening to Ryuuki...

Hana Yori Dango 2
Arrrgh. They're gonna do that stupid STUPID memory loss arc after all. And in the final two episodes?! Sheesh. I hated that arc in the manga. It was just so silly and cliched. Convenient that he forgets just things related to Makino. *rolls eyes*

Haken no Hinkaku
I've only watched up till episode 5 I think. Or 6. Can't remember. It's tough without subs. :( But it looks like Mori has a crush on Satonaka-shunin. Hm. Can't see that working out. Hahahah... It was funny seeing how seemingly popular he is with the ladies though. And looked so awkward about it - the chocolates and all. ^^
And I'm longing to know what on earth Shirotan's character is saying half the time. :/

Hm. A bit slow to me at the moment. But then it is mostly about Sena defeating Shin in this game, even if Deimon loses to Oujou in the end. We'll see how it goes. Right now it still feels less exciting than the Shinryuuji match.

So I just watched Bleach 116.
Grimmjaw's first appearance in the anime. When he said his first two lines, I thought his voice sounded mighty familiar. Sounded like Momoshiro. Or Abarai. But I wasn't sure. So I checked Anime News Network.

Grimmjaw Jaggerjack = Atobe Keigo??
(well, Suwabe Junichi really, but since he's also the seiyuu for Atobe, the equation sorta works. hahahah)

I replayed Grimmjaw's parts in the episode. Yup. Definitely Atobe. The attitude fits too. The arrogant (villain) character. He's just short of going, "Ahn~?" or "Na, Kabaji?"
Grimmjaw talks faster and sounds more hotheaded though... Atobe's speech was mostly a sort of arrogant drawl. Either way, Suwabe Junichi's voice suits the high-handed, arrogant characters.'

Meanwhile, in PoT (manga)...

Tezuka is SO COOL.
Hyakuren and Saiki Kanpatsu! :D

Rant coming. And possible spoilers for upcoming chapters of the PoT manga. You were warned.

I think I just about died laughing when I saw the clips of the Bleach musical on Youtube.

LOL... )

Second of my "Orientals" series is up on dA already, if you'd like to check it out. :)

Other randomness:
- I got a new camera!
- *anime drought* Nothing new seems to be out yet... ;_;  (I know; I'm impatient. ahah)
