Seiyuu FanFic? – Yes or No

If anyone was wondering (which is close to one or none at all), school’s burning me out, so I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve only started to catch up on anime (bad idea, as I have a test every day this week). (*´Д`*)=3 Anywho, I’ve debated for a while now on whether I should make a seiyuu fanfic post or not. Honestly, I really do want to share the creative works of OtaAgg, but she never finishes any stories that she starts! So hopefully, this entry will encourage her to write more and finish one of her many fanfics that have left me hanging. (*´□`*)!

The following story is still being developed, so there is no end to it yet. It started off as an impromptu by stringing phrases together, then it ballooned out to satisfy our egotistical minds. There is no specific start point to the story. These stories are random scenes that are not told chronologically, but are somehow integrated into our fictional lives.

A little background before I begin with the story. Last week, j1mone recently posted a miscellaneous diary entry, and there was a little tibid about Marimite. On MSN, OtaAgg proceeds to talk about her dearest Mamiko, and finally decides to “set up” her harem. Now, she is no longer the  triad boss, A-姐 – my Goshujin-sama has become an oyabun, and I, her underLing, a honbucho.

I’ve always wondered…

Filed under: miscellaneous — Tags: — staappy @ 9:26 pm

Since j1m0ne conveniently posted an entry today about Kogao and Dekagao face sizes, I thought it was about time I put this question up for answer. So, can anyone tell me what Minorin’s secret weight loss regime is, kudasai? (*´Д`*)

The other day I was looking through some old seiyuu magazines, dating 2002-2006, and I realized that Minorin first appeared chubby, and not so bijin. So I plotted dots: 1) Haruhi came out in ’06, and she was still chubby then. 2) N/A. 3) I got seiyuu fever around the time, and Minorin was one of the first seiyuu I took notice of. Picture? The dots don’t connect, unfortunately.

Minorin’s debut went from this:

To this, in a year’s time:

I’m pretty sure I got the pictures right, in terms of chronologically, but correct me if I’m wrong. Surely something happened between 2006 and 2007, as the difference can be seen in the Animelo DVDs. Then again, she only appeared on stage during the singing of OUTRIDE for a few seconds as the camera panned over the Haruhi trio in the DVD, so I can’t be too sure.

Boy, if only I can lose weight like that and maintain such a great look!

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha series

Synopsis: Yuuno Scrya is a mage from a distant planet working to fix the problem he started when Jewel Seeds were accidentally spread around the world. In a failed attempt to seal a seed properly, he winds up on Earth in the form of a ferret. However, his battle with the seeds did not end upon reaching the Earth and he needs somebody else’s help to seal the seeds for him. Takamachi Nanoha hears his telepathic cries for help and comes to his rescue. When she is given a pearl known as the Raging Heart she is able to transform into Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and wield a staff to fend off the evil that lies within the Seeds. In order to help Yuuno complete his mission, she needs to seal all 21 Jewel Seeds away, but Fate may be playing a hand in the matter to prevent Nanoha’s goals. -Source: ANN

There are definitely better series out there, and although Nanoha doesn’t make my top ten lists, it does make a favourite. I can’t believe I’ve delayed downloading and watching it for the longest time. To have made two sequels and an upcoming movie means that this series is a must-watch for Nana, Yukarin, and Kana fans. I’ve put off this entry for a while now, and I haven’t updated in a long time because of it, so here it is!

Warning, image heavy.

GGed by Google

Filed under: miscellaneous — staappy @ 11:04 am

The other day, OtaAgg and I were looking at our blog hits, and we were laughing at how our Ikkitousen posts made the top 5, and her KitaEri post made the first. So we were wondering, WHY people dislike Ikki so much, yet so many people look it up and end up on our blogs; and KitaEri was just a short post that started off OtaAgg’s blog.

I woke up this morning, remembering hard from last night that I had to look up places that sells seiyuu related materials in Toronto in prep for shopping with A-姐 tomorrow. So I proceeded to look it up on the vast search engine called ‘Google’.

Kannazuki no Miko

Filed under: anime — Tags: , , — staappy @ 3:41 pm

Synopsis: Kannazuki no Miko is the story of Himeko and Chikane, the reincarnations of the Solar and Lunar Miko, respectively. They are two high school girls going to the prestigious Ototachibana Academy of Mahoroba, Japan. When an ancient evil rises once more, the girls are plunged into destiny as their long-sealed personas awaken to defend the world against the Orochi. The Miko must awaken Ame no Murakumo in order to combat the threat while Sōma, the Orochi turned protector, repels the Orochi efforts to kill them. -Source: Wikipedia

Finally, a good yuri series since Simoun. I’m quite surprised as to how this turned out. I wasn’t expecting much after reading the synopsis by ANN. It seemed uneventful, but I needed my yuri dosage that I’ve been lacking since watching the great Simoun almost a year ago. (*^_^*)

underLing vs A-姐

Filed under: miscellaneous — Tags: , , , , , — staappy @ 7:07 pm

…for my dearest Noto Mamiko.

I don’t care what you say, I’m not giving her to you, A-姐. As much as I am underLing, I can easily overpower you. (´з`)

Long Weekend Camping

Filed under: life, miscellaneous — Tags: — staappy @ 10:41 pm

I’m back from the long weekend camping. I anticipated rain, and the good thing was that it rained on the first day, so we got nice weather after that. Unfortunately, because of the rain, some most people had muddy sites. Luckily, my area was shaded by trees, so when it rained (or shined) it wasn’t too bad. My dad and I managed to set up the new tent we got in half an hour, while everyone else had to be ferried under an umbrella while they worked to set camp.

I enjoy the outdoors. I look forward to road trips camping every year – it’s nice to get out of the polluted city and breathe in some fresh unpolluted outdoor air. Time flies when you’re having fun. It was a quick 3 day thing, but I enjoyed it to the max. I’ll try to retell as it went, but my inability to retain information will result in me mixing up days and activities. Just go with the flow. I’m sure OtaAgg will point out my mistakes.

Breaking Dawn in T9 Hours

Filed under: life, miscellaneous — Tags: , , , — staappy @ 3:00 pm

As the title suggests, Stephenie Meyer’s final vampire book hits stores tomorrow in North America. I’m quite excited actually. I purposely reread all three books to get ready for the fourth. Almost like Harry Potter, where people would reread the latest book before the new one came out, or before watching the movie. Granted, Meyer’s third book, Eclipse, of the Twilight saga, outsold J.K. Rowling’s final Harry Potter book.

Ikki DD, KimiAru

Filed under: anime, life — Tags: , , — staappy @ 11:48 am

Synopsis: Loosely based on the novel ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms’, modern day Japan sees a similar struggle for power between different rival schools with the three strongest being; Kyosho Academy led by Sousou Moutoku, Nanyo Academy by Sonsaku Hakufu and Ryuubi Gentoku from Seito High School. Together these three tousei, each with their own mangatama, fight for the honour of becoming ikki tousen and fulfilling their fated destiny through battle and conquest. -Source: ANN

Ikkitousen: Dragon Destiny is the sequel to Ikkitousen if you haven’t noticed. The art was much better than the first season, which is a given, as normally art improves with each sequel. Then again, it was a different studio (ARMS) that did Ikki DD, rather than J.C. Staff, who did the first Ikki season.
