My new OTP [17 Feb 2014|07:19pm]
It's been ages since I post anything here. Haven't got much time since I started working. Time has passed. And I haven't came across interesting stuff because of the lack of time to find them. Recently I got crazy about a new pairing.
That is JOHNLOCK from the modern BBC adaptation of Sherlock.

Hey, this might be the first time a pairing I fantasize in a not BL drama/movie/whatever-that-can-be-watched will actually have a great probability of going canon. Season 3 really has me thinking that. As someone who always watch tv and start pairing the characters, I always dismissed them as 'my imagination'or 'my fantasies' and will always find ways to make myself reasonable, but season 3 is really obvious. To the point of I can't deny Sherlock has feelings for John already. Now I just need to wait for Season 4 & 5 for these two to get over their obstacles and be together in the end.

As Steven Moffat, one of the creator of the series said: "This is not a detective story but a story about a detective." Which I read it as his personal, friendship and romance life is put in the first place rather than solving cases. Which is why this story is really interesting.

But ARGH, since season 3 just came out... The creators already said season 4 will wait until 2016 :( and another 2 years for season 5 which they already have plotted out.

Ace Attorney 5 is announced! [03 Sep 2012|09:32pm]
It is 10 year anniversary announcement I think, I read it from Chinese site. Plus, there isn't much on the video. It just says Ace Attorney 5 announced. I think it should be at Capcom's site. I searched youtube and didn't find the video yet.
Here's where I watched from:

Here(can't find the video but the main page says Ace Attorney 5 development confirmed in Japanese):

I guess the popularity of the Ace Attorney movie pays off? I love it.

Initial D BL rambles [09 Aug 2012|06:45pm]
Yeah, there will soon be new Initial D anime this Nov I think(not sure it's Stage 5 anime series or movie or they might redo the whole series?). The last anime(4th Stage) was 2006? So many years! I thought the manga was already finished but it is still serializing!

I remember during 1999 the day before Chinese New Year I went to my uncle's house and saw my cousins watching rented VHS tapes of Initial D episode 1 and 2. It was the point of no return for me. I borrowed the two tapes and watch it at home repeatedly for the whole night and morning!

I love it so much at that time. I don't really care about cars actually(just like I don't really care about Gundam but I like the anime very much) but I just love it.

So yeah, I went to watch the whole Stage 1-4 anime these few days. I also start to read the manga and found out that it's good to read!(I thought it may be not as nice as anime because anime is better at portraying the speed in car racing. But I was so entertained and read until the end(not finished). I noticed some things I didn't notice in the past and I find that I couldn't remember anything of Stage 4. I was like: "Did I really watch Stage 4 in the past at all?"

So, as a fujioshi, I began to notice some things that make me think nonsense that I never thought of in the past. I began to ship Ryousuke & Takumi or even Keisuke & Takumi. In Stage 1, Ryousuke send Takumi roses LOL(I don't remember this). Of course, the roses meant nothing but polite and invitation to battle but you know how a fujioshi's mind works. XD ALSO, later in stage 4, Ryousuke came to the gas station to find Takumi and talk to him. After Ryousuke left, Takumi blushes and flustered that he couldn't speak hahaha. So yeah, Takumi has mancrush(when a man idolize another man non-sexually) on Ryousuke. But you know how I would interpret it in my fantasies.

After reading the manga, I find that there is actually a lot of Keisuke and Takumi interaction. Like in one of the later chapters Keisuke and Takumi sleep in a air-con room by themselves to prepare for the night battle because it was so hot and these two are Project D's aces and need to rest. Keisuke talk to Takumi but Takumi fell sleep so fast that he couldn't believe it. Later later after that, the whole Project D crew rented a whole cabin and Takumi is too cute(sleepyhead). He fell asleep too easily and zombied when waken up. XD

But my Ryousuke & Takumi pair ship got shaken a bit where Takumi got a golfer girlfriend TAT and during the chapters talking about Ryousuke past where 3 years ago, the girl that Ryousuke loves committed suicide. But anyway, it just intensifies my Ryousuke & Takumi fantasy ship actually where I think more weird things.

I'm really looking forward to the new anime. I wonder how the anime art would look like too. Shigeno-sensei's art looks really different from the past. Also, Ryousuke hairstyle look really different now. Plus, there are some panels where I can't distinguish Ryousuke with Takumi. I don't like the current art, there are some far shoot panels of characters and their faces look really stonic. Keisuke's hairline also look really flat and weird now.

Prince Maker Bravenss [02 Jun 2012|10:10pm]
I totally neglected my livejournal these days. I just released the English Translation of Prince Maker Braveness a few days ago. It is a simulation raising game like Princess Maker 2.

If you're interested in the game, you can download there:

On other side note, the newest chapter of Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi is out. Introducing a new character too. Still not sure what are his motives but he may come between Onodera and Masamune.

Devil Survivor 2 [10 May 2012|04:35pm]
Ahahahaha, Devil Survivor 2 is officially the most funny game I played this year(well this year isn't over but I don't play that much games these days). The humor will definitely get to you.

Well, today I saw this and as a fujioshi this totally gets me laughing like hell. XDDD
Chief Yamato called you(Hero) after battle to gather at the government building. After call, Fumi(the girl at right of the pic) ask what the chief said. You can answer: "He said he likes me" Ahahahaha!! The funny thing is the MC is probably not wrong XD If you played the game, you would find that Yamato is pretty much infatuated with the Hero but treat everyone else like trash.

Wondering how Yamato look like? I found a very pretty fanart! It seems a lot of BL fanarts of MC & Yamato.

Of course this is not the only funny thing. This post really has a lot of funny quotes and Yamato infatuation with the Hero quotes XD

My favorites:
MC saying: Raiiiiinbowww! (XDDDD)

Makoto: "[MC], are you awake, I need to speak with you."
MC: "Pervert!"
Makoto: "W-What!? But I wasn't trying to-!"
Next Day:
*knocks on door*
Makoto: "[MC], I'm coming in.... I-Is that all right?"
MC: "Pervert!"
Makoto: "W-Why!? I haven't even entered the room yet...!"

Also the body examination day. Daichi, MC and Joe go peeping the girls(you can choose not to peep though).
(Daichi is worried he'll get caught by Makoto because of peeping the girls)
MC: Just tell them you're gay.
Daichi: Yeah, I could get away with it if I said I'm in love with Yamato..

MC is definitely slashy with Yamato.
Like when you tried to persuade Yamato to join your group:
Yamato: Ha... I see. Just as I yearned for you, now you are yearning for me.
The subplot about the Takoyaki with Yamato is also so cute where you(MC) tried to lure Yamato to eat the Takoyaki. hahaha. There are more. There thread has some more slashy lines too.

Shin Megami Tensei's series are always having depressing themes. Devil Survivor 1 is depressing and dark as hell. Devil Survivor 2 on the other hand too funny and relaxed, feels like doing missions all the time. But this is the most funny silent protagonist. His answers are always so funny.

Junjou Romantica Confirm Anime!!! [28 Mar 2012|08:25pm]
Ahhhhh! I'm sooooo happy!!!
Even though it didn't say it's 3rd season or OVA but it said "TV Anime"!!!

Btw, this CIEL May is about Onodera's bday. It's his bday yesterday I think? I'm pretty much lost in my days because of the Prince Maker 2 translation.

Using dropbox to collaborate with game translating or collaborate with anything [26 Mar 2012|01:06am]
Firstly, I'm taking another 2 weeks off Sherlock Holmes. The translation progress of Prince Maker is going very smoothly! I think another week or two can probably finish it.

Dropbox is a must have! I don't think I can go back to using the old method to collaborate.

- Install Dropbox desktop software. Dropbox integrates to windows explorer like a normal folder.
- Save files that need to be translated in Dropbox folder. We have folders "Chat"(for chat app), "Screenshots"(to communicate if words are hard to do)
- Make the folder a shared folder. Shared the folder with everyone that is in the team.

- Edit the files directly, it'll sync when you save it. It'll sync the files with everyone when they open the Dropbox software. You can see the icon changes when it is syncing so pretty handy.
- Any Edits to the file will let everyone on the team receive balloon notifications on what is edited/added/deleted. No screenshot as none of my teammembers are around to help me get a notification now :D But you know what it is right?

- There is even a external chat software I found that you can communicate with everyone in the team. Even though it'll create conflicting copies, but at least the chat will be kept for everyone in the team to see when they run the Dropbox application. Normal chat software can't do that. Before we use this software, we were using txt file(or any file) and changing the name of the file. It'll give notifications when we change the file name. As you can see we have a few of the chat app in different folders as individual chat about a certain topic(you can run multiple of the chat if it is put in different folders). We have GeneralChat, ScriptChat, GraphicsChat, Announcements/Questions(no chat here but to get a global msg across if he/she not around). To access them fast, I create shortcuts to my dock so I can check all of them at once after I launch Dropbox.
many picturesCollapse )

It makes your music feel like new music [15 Mar 2012|10:27pm]
I'm addicted to ambience sound/reverb.
I installed a winamp plugin to enhance sounds. Anyone still using winamp?? I always get back to winamp after trying to use other players :( I'm personally not a fan of the enhanced sounds though so I stick with a lil enhancement(about the bass & treble stuff), probably can't even feel it myself. I'm not a fan because when a setting suits this song, it doesn't suit another song(because bass & treble is different in most songs). I really wish there's a software that can auto tune for every song me. Spider player lags so in the end I can't use it.

BUT, I found the ambience(which makes your music echo) to be very flattering to me. I even set it to 4 out of 10. The range of the ambience also set to 4/10. I try it out with a lot of songs.

I really love the cool ambience effect for all my songs!

This plugin, it is REALLY old but many ppl still find it the best free winamp DSP plugin:

If you have issues with it(for Vista and Windows 7) look at this thread for a wrapper:

This is my setting, you can change the ugly default skin also:

SIH drama [02 Mar 2012|01:08am]
I just listen to the SIH drama in the special First Season SIH+Super Lovers drama cd.
Remember the chapter that Takano & Onodera go to meet mangaka and sleep in a double bed together?
The drama start in the train where they're going back Tokyo. Takano slept on the train. After that, Onodera fell asleep in a cab & Takano carried him back to his house. Takano cook for the two of them. Onodera slept so soundly and never woke up until Takano finished cooking. Onodera found out that they managed to talk normally unlike the awkward silence when they were together before. Onodera wanted to go home quickly but like normal, is stopped and got hugged+kissed at the hallway. And after that Takano managed to get a peek of Onodera's house which is filed with rubbish. Takano went in like he's the owner and order Onodera to clean the house. That, Onodera is forced to spring cleaning for 5 hours. :D

Such a sweet chapter.

OMG OMG! [29 Feb 2012|11:28am]
Great news! The new TresTres April revealed that there'll be new Nakamura Shungiku anime and it's not Hybrid Child! Need to wait until Ciel May to find out. Which means! Junjou Romantica Season 3 isn't a dream!!!(even though still dunno what anime they're doing)

Also Junjou Romantica 10th year anniversary, release Junai Romantica 7 & Junjou Romantica 15 manga. The next 2 TresTres will serialize Junjou Romantica manga. TresTres June will have the live talk of SIH seiyuu recording(like the Talk corner last time) consists of seiyuu 近藤(Ritsu)、立花(Chiaki)、小信(Kisa)、前野(Yukina)、崛内(Yokozawa), Yukina seme is going to be in a bunch of uke... XD

Hybrid Child animation detail will also be revealed in Ciel May.

The Hattori's POV novel in this TresTres revealed the past before the high school graduation ceremony. The secret is when Hattori helped Chiaki with his tie, he swapped his tie with his, so Chiaki was wearing Hattori's tie and Hattori wearing Chiaki's tie. It's like the girl who wanted Hattori's shirt second button. Hattori also wear Chiaki's shirt(a bit small) because of the button episode with the girl.

The Main Character Uke Syndrome [14 Feb 2012|11:04pm]
There isn't a syndrome like this, I kind of coined it myself because I'm heavily infected by it. :P

What is this? This means you have a strong tendency to coin the main character as an uke if the seme/uke role isn't defined. This is something I noticed for some time and it is kind of interesting to think of.

I recently watched Tiger and Bunny and I view Kotetsu ojisan as an uke. He isn't particularly uke-ish. Actually, he sometimes seems like seme. Actually, I could blame on my other fetish of liking older character as uke(年下攻). Bunny isn't really seme-ish. He isn't Kichiku(鬼蓄,腹黑) nor does he have particularly strong character. He breaks down and couldn't keep control of his anger.

Another example(main chara that is more seme than uke) I could think of now would be Gintama, I like Gin-san as uke even though he's super seme, super strong. Actually, I'm not really into pairing in Gintama. But I love Gintama like crazy. It's the only anime I feverishly pursue every week now. All others I read manga. Ahem, out of topic. In my mind, I kind of have a thin block Gin-san as seme. It's not like I'm totally against it but I'm not loving the idea.
This applies for all shounen titles. I pretty much view all of the main characters as uke. LOL

Probable Reason:
I think this kind of thing happen because when you read a BL novel or BL manga, the main chara is always uke or at least 80% of it. So I kind of got influenced with this idea. This is another thing worth pondering over. Why, mostly the main character is the uke? I think it's because mostly uke have richer emotional feelings/monologue to sympathize over. I think it is a mental thing. When you don't know what the seme thinks, he'll look more 'cool'.(Actually, like Junjou Romantica and a lot of BL novels, their is a lot of seme's POV too without much problem but they are still not the main character or their POV only set in the extra part of the novel,番外) Actually, it happens in shoujo too. Mostly, the main chara is the girl.

Do you have this problem?

Just finished Tiger & Bunny [11 Feb 2012|05:16pm]
What a great journey and the ending is well, not really an ending BUT a new beginning!!!

Which means it's really easy to make a second season. There's 2 movie in works I think. Not sure about second season. But the main mystery about the evil organization and one of the main bad guy, Lunatic is still not caught yet.

This anime got really high ratings in Japan so I'm sure I'll see more Tiger & Bunny soon.

Totally recommended. I love this anime so much. Lots of fangirl squeals from me when watching. Totally ship Bunny x Ojisan ahahahah.

TIGER & BUNNY [10 Feb 2012|06:57pm]
I'm recently into...


Hell yeah! Don't let the name fool you. It is not a fluffy kid story. It is a commercially infused superhero story and his partner/sidekick story. Superheroes are good commercials for big brand names in the future.
It is reeeeeaaaaaaaly gooooood.
I watch it like a shounen-ai story hehehehe.
At first the OP song kind of weird and kind of turn me off but it seriously is great anime. I love the humor/jokes. I love the Ojisan main chara. Luv him Luv him hahaha. All of bunny silent laughs really make me shriek of BL fangirliness. I'm sorry but I can't help but think BL when he do that. Makes me thinks he love Tiger Ojisan. >.<

All aside, the story of each chara is good. I kind of engross into their stories for each episode.

Definitely a great recommend. Great superhero story. Great sci-fi(pretty impressed with the sci-fi-ness, very beautiful elaborate art(like the city design) that is not often found in anime, like the city and stuff). Great comedy. Great BL "hints" hehehe. I can almost feel a second season coming since this series is quite popular.

Chinese artist intro: 触月MoonJ [08 Feb 2012|11:53pm]
It's a long time since I did this.
触月is one of the artist I know quite recently due to 盗墓笔记. Her 盗墓笔记 fanarts are everywhere. I guess it's unavoidable, they're very pretty. And also the main reason is she released 盗墓笔记 doujinshi. But she draw fanarts of all kinds of things though.
Sample pic, also my most fav(click to see original size):


All Doujin Info:

《惊蛰》盗墓笔记 Doujinshi (Most recent)

《足矣》Saiyuki Doujinshi (Stopped/Not released yet)

《拾年》盗墓笔记 Doujinshi
This one collaborated with a lot of other artists and authors.

《只有你听得到》特殊传说 Doujinshi
Collaborated with some other artists and authors

She also draws for some novel covers which I didn't mention.

OMG!!!! Gohou Drug [07 Feb 2012|06:31pm]
I just knew that Gohou Drug is continued(now with a new name: Drug & Drop).
I reeeeeeaaaaaallly love Gohou Drug and I'm really happy it's continued. YAY!

Now I think about it, it was so long. I get to know Gohou Drug like 5 years ago when I go over to my friend's place and borrow/read her manga collection and the 3 volumes Gohou Drug is one of them.

Hehhehe, I'm sure before long Gohou Drug anime will be out.

Yokozawa's novel [31 Jan 2012|02:23am]
Ahahaha, so cute.

The case of Yokozawa &............ Sorata. Woot, Sorata's first love. I never imagine the cat would be included ^^
Yokozawa is the matchmaker. It's not a cat. Can you guess who she is?
It's the seme's(hmm, I don't remember his name XD) bday and Yokozawa is thinking what to give to him, after frustrating about it he finally hear the seme complain about his key bag soooo....but unfortunately, the seme bought the same keybag with different colour. In the end, they exchanged the keybag.

Also said there is a great/big news about Junjou Romantica and will be release 'a bit' in April's TresTres. Lol, so mysterious. Always with the tactic to get my hopes up for Season 3 TAT

Ai no Kusabi vol1 [18 Jan 2012|05:38am]
It is really really beautiful & breathtaking but there is something that keep bothering me >.< I think most ppl won't notice or not concerned but I'm so bothered about Iason's voice. Unfortunately, I don't like the new Iason's voice. Itou Kentarou is still ok as Riki but Iason's soft velvety voice T-T is gone. It feels a really big chunk of emotion is gone from Iason.

Sorry for the rant but the voice is really bothering me(although I heard from the preview b4 but watching the full feels more distracting), maybe because I was too charmed by the old AnK Shiozawa-san's Iason. I shouldn't say so much about the voice. It's not that bad. Could be worse.

I have to say I'm really impressed with the visuals. It really feels very sci-fi (which is something I really love). Very detailed too. Even Gundam sci-fi-ness doesn't impressed me that much. The front part really skip scenes so fast. Ppl like me who read the novel b4 don't mind but I think those who watch it the first time probably is puzzled. Yeah, most ppl won't know the reason why Riki have sex with Mimea from watching the anime. Tarnish Iason's image is one of the reason but the main reason is a more personal one. He wanted to know how Iason would act, he wanted Iason to be jealous. The case with furniture Daryl is not that clear in the new OVA too.

From how I see the direction of the anime goes, after these 4 eps, there will be some kind of ending. Not the final ending but kind of like you watch the 1st OVA of the old Ai no Kusabi. It feels like the end of the part. Then they'll start ep5 with how Riki met Iason and go from there.

Actually, I think I have some more to say but I got distracted and forgot. Well, I'll end here.

Love Prize In Viewfinder [18 Jan 2012|01:22am]
Feels like so long ago when I heard Viewfinder is going to be animated. But I just saw the anime art. Looks great actually. Will be out Feb 29!
I'll translate a bit:
This is the invitation to the preview of ANiMiX's Viewfinder. This person is one of the 50 ppl that was picked for the event. Yamano-sensei was actually busy and couldn't come but the surprise is she skipped her work and came in the end. Yamano-sensei is really cute with yellow hair and wears like a girl. She says this is the first time she watched porn with so many ppl. *Lots of fangirling like saying Yamano-sensei sitting just a little behind her etc.* The anime is actually made quite good(she has low expectation as long as it's not that bad) and the face doesn't get spoilt and is quite close to the art. Also said the scale of H-ness is kind of big(Yay more meat). Lastly, the little parting present is a photo of Asami which is shown in the picture below.
