I tried to read Fairy Tail once more, but I couldn't. I realized that I'm tired of shouen mangas, like Naruto/One Piece/Fairy Tail, since they're so freaking idealistic. Natsu once said that he would never let anyone sacrifice Lucy's (his friend) future, even though they were in a grave and desperate situation where Rogue accused (incorrectly) of Lucy blocking a very important step in saving the world and wants to kill her. I... on one hand, Natsu trusts his friend very very very much, the other hand he is being very selfish for the world. He is unwilling to sacrifice his friend's future, but willing to kill off the world' future? And, of course, in the end, everything works out well.

I guess this is not the type of manga for me then, because I hate it when people are so selfish and well the author himself supports this type of view, portraying them in a just light, and I'm just ugh.

Maybe that's why I prefer Shingeki no Kyojin 1000x than FT? Well, those two animes conflict in terms of values in so many different ways lol but the thing is that Shingeki is realistic in terms of battling methods- you must sacrifice many people's lives for the sake of the future and humanity because that's real life, while FT is all about trying not to sacrifice anyone's future, but if that couldn't be done, oh, fuck that, just don't sacrifice my friends' lives alright?

:/ I once loved Fairy Tail to death and it was the only anime that made me cry more than five times, but as the anime/manga progressed on I stopped crying and losing my tears because they are, to me, turning more and more selfish and Mashima actually supports them.

Oh well.

but their soundtrak is damn good

Reallyreallyreally want to draw this pic! I think I will post it in my journal when I'm done- maybe a WIP progress if it turns out successful lol~

I've always been interested in interesting China pairs... but only then did I go search on Tumblr and discovered the awesomeness of ROME/CHINA.

Heard that? Rome/China. Probably my favorite obsession since the discovery of USUK and TurGre. I mean, I like RoChu as well, it is a great pair given their history and... interesting times, but Rome/China is like an exotic fruit I have yet to taste, haha. I mean, although they never did directly meet with each other, they were like the East and West of the world- I can just imagine Rome being the Sun and China being the moon. Ahahaha.

They can have an urequited love for each other! Maybe even be China's first true love and Rome's true love out... of his many... loves. But, of course, all this was ruined when SPQR collapsed, leaving only the two Italies. Maybe, maybe China closed off his heart after that and watched the Italies from far away and gave them his goods (silk, spices, etc) when they wanted it.

Oh, God. You see this picture?

Maybe Rome was a child then when he first met China and then years later he met China again as a young man (a crush from his adolescent turned into full-out love for her him)

DO YOU SEE THE SEXINESS OF THE PICTURE. DO YOU SEE THE LOVE. RAWR.

don't get me wrong i think china still loves russia but rome was his first love and he never truly got over it. if rome came back china's heart would probably be torn in half. because rome never finished the love affair with china- he simply just... disappeared.

Bought 10+ doujins and thinking of weeding out some doujins from my shelf, all coming soon... be prepared for a massive update to my sales post. ;u;

After watching the FT movie...

I didn't feel any emotions. Could that be because I've watched too many heart-wretching FT episodes that have done better jobs than the movie? Maybe, but then how come I cried after rewatching the Edolas arc if I'm supposedly immune to FT dramas? Idk. But I hated the fact that Lucy was acting like nothing short of a selfish brat and useless person there.

I mean, there were many instances in which she could have pulled out her keys and protected Eclair from danger. But no, she just chose to ran and scream away. Hell, then, at the end, when Eclair had to go because of the Phoenix's death, she was so reluctant on letting go and not caring about the world or the Phoenix stone (she said so herself at the beginning! I don't care about the stones or that! I just want to protect Eclair!) ... which basically meant she didn't give a crap about the world and only did it and went on this mission for her.

Can you say SELFISH!? I mean, I know, Lucy has always been on the selfish side of humanity, but she just kept on screaming in the end when Eclair was about to die, and Eclair even wanted to die because she has lived too long! Besides, which does she want to keep? Her friends or the world?

I have a feeling that Fairy Tail would pick their friends instead of the 1 billion+ people in their world.

Right now, I fucking hate Lucy because

#1. she's fucking useless. All she does right now is collect keys and occasionally being a badass (loved it when she argued with Angel for Loke + the sheep...'s happiness and slammed Urano Meteoria on her) and being FUCKING USELESS.

#2. she's selfish. I mean, I /can/ tolerate her if she's useless but not selfish, but NO, she's selfish on TOP of being fucking useless. Seriously? she'll drop dead for her friends but won't for the world. And judging from her decisions, she'd probably drop dead for Eclair than saving the world, since Lucy kept on yelling "STOP!" when Makarov was signaling Erza to fire it AND thus, saving the entire world.

I understand her feelings a bit. But seriously. She needs someone to bitchslap her occasionally, and her friends are too nice to do that so I may jump into the anime one day and do that myself.

Rating the movie a 3/10.

So I watched Psycho Pass around a month ago and tbh I still have complicated emotions about it, much like Code Geass but without any notions of pairings or ships or anything romantic. Psycho Pass is, to me, simply an anime that Gen uses to broadcast his ideas and beliefs.

I can't recall much of what I watched now, but after reading this that pretty much summed up all of what I thought about it. Sibyl, the system in which governed Japan and took away free will with full consent from the people, and, essentially humanity in turn for protection and happiness and stability (Brave New World much?). However, I don't think humans can live under Sibyl because without the conventional chaos in society (which doesn't exist in the alternate future of Japan because everything is ensured and controlled by Sibyl, from where you're going to work and live and die and marry the moment you're born) humanity will stagnate and become stupid and dull and will no longer have the will to survive, which basically summed up my belief- the destruction of humanity.

By entrusting your life to others or the government because you cannot handle yourself is exactly what the PP-Japan is doing and doesn't that in essentially take away life's meaning? The moment you're born, your life has already been decided- then what's the meaning for me to live? If I cannot find my own way in life, what's the point? What's the whole point in following people's orders in turn for happiness that might not even actually be my own happiness but the State's happiness? And even if it is, is that real happiness? To live under someone else your whole entire life, being protected by a system of justice that controlls every aspect of life?

Essentially I don't think a society can exist in humanity in the first place because humanity cannot live without chaos- such a society will stagnate and regress because humanity needs progress in order to develop themselves further and without it we will not be humans anymore.

Okay, so on Zerochan I found a really beautiful artwork that's actually a fanart of Cantarella. It's so beautiful, it's even made into one of the front page of Zerochan. And someone down there mentioned that it kind of looks like CC and Lelouch. But I don't like that pairing much, so I skimmed around and found that someone had photoshopped it to make it look black and white and now Miku/CC looks like Luluko/Leloucia now. O_O I'm thinking of drawing it. :D But I already have one project I'm thinking of starting on, so...

Aside from that, the Code Geass: Knight mangas I ordered came today, in English! I have currently 1, 2, 3 out of 1, 2, 3, 5. I'm planning on getting Volume 4, but that needs to be done next week. xD The doujins I ordered also came. xD I'm happy- now all I want is a trench coat that looks beautiful. ;u; But it kinda cost money. Like, $35+shipping.

But. Life shouldn't be about wants, eh?

PS the GA I attended also notified me that the package arrived. Hopefully she'll ship out the book soon. :3

PSS Also read that Alaska is losing it's snow, so much that the Iditarod must be postponed. O_O God, global warming... please, please, don't let us humans ruin this earth. Send someone worthy! D:
pennilee: (DERP)
So... uhm. I kinda have a weird doujinshi-shopping-spree again, only that this time it is Code Geass and, erm. The doujins I spotted are all anthologies and, even without shipping included, quite expensive. D: So in the end I kinda crossed out half of it, and left three on my list- two anthos w/266 pages (205 comic, 61 novel) and the other 114 pages (pure comic). The other is 24 pages, pure comic.  But still, they're freaking expensive- $86 without shipping included! God. X_X Also, I'm planning on using IPMO, but frankly I've never used it before, so I'm not sure how it works. But uh, heard that they can replace the money order and stuff, so I guess that's insurance? 

Oh, and the seller lives in Japan, and I've researched a bit and checked that Japan's IPMO receiving system is quite strict and requires certain stuff, like actually writing USD after the amount... or was it before? I don't know, but I've heard that the receiver cannot accept it if it's not correctly written. >.< I also don't know how long it takes for it to reach Japan, and whether they will allow me to send it by whichever method I prefer. o_o It's so complicated, and I'm not so trusting on IPMO, but god those doujinshis... DX ]

And the postage rate is increasing, as usual. And these are doujins, two moderately heavy anthologies. From Japan. 

GOD, THE SHIPPING COST NIGHTMARES IF I DECIDE TO GO THROUGH WITH IT. DX 

(and, well, there's the option of me using PP once more, but hell that's going to complicate some things...)

edit: changed my list- now I cancelled one of the anthos, leaving only the less expensive one, the second doujinshi, and a new one I'm going to purchase via Paypal. Since I'm running low on money a bit I'm wondering if I should sell my ArteStella deck. That's going to rake up something, for sure, but I have no idea how to ship it. >.< I don't know where to buy the suitable box, God...
pennilee: (concerned)
I really don't want to collect anything at all afterall. :p Well, you know that feeling when you see something you think you want? After you get it, if it's not something useful, the feeling just kinda goes away... at least for me. I mean, I think I don't really care about these things anymore, like owning these items and stuff. Stuff that really does not mean anything to me but rather I wanted to get them because it pleased the conformist in me. But afterwards, the me that wants to be frugal and save money to donate to charity slaps me upside the head and tells me to not collect these items and just stick to buying doujins- at least you can read them over and over again.

So I'm thinking of selling my Hetalia items after the box of rubber straps arrive and along with other stuff. I just don't think owning these are worth it... I'm not really materialistic, and I tell myself not to be one, for the real thing that matters is not in what you own, but rather your heart. So I think I'll just stick to watching anime and occasionally buying doujinshi to read. Buying merchandises after all is not so much a pleasing thing anymore. :p I think I outgrew my obsession to buy... I guess, in other words, worthless things. But I think I'll keep the ArteStella deck... xD

But I've had a bad experience with the PO (losing the first package I send, WITH DELIVERY CONFIRMATION >:(), so I'm a little hesitant on selling.

Gack, posting at 11:30 at night, but whatever. :3 Gosh, still can't believe I'm getting a 230 page CG anthology and the England + Prussia strap, along with a France pillow all under 80 bucks! Especially since that Circle is actually quite popular in that fandom... it's already selling fast after its Comiket release on 12/29. o_o It's like on par with Hakoniwa from Hetalia. The artwork is so beautifullll, like Hakoniwa's too. :3

Prussia + England straps... holy cows I don't even want to know how rare those two are. >.<

Also got the custom head for free. :D Until 2014!!!
pennilee: (gooddaysir)
It's almost New Years, guys! One more day (excluding today) until 1/1/2013!! Are you guys excited? :3 I know I a for the new Hetalia season!

Btw, I think I'm pretty much giving up on my fic... I mean, while the plot seems good, my foundation for the plot is not so good. I'll probably be either typing on (but I've pretty much lost all my inspiration for that fic :p- I need to hurry to the main plot if I want my inspiration to be back), or going to my other fic idea (A Tale of One Thousand Years and a Night- I know, how original ;p) , which is about events in history reenacted by Hetalia characters, from the rise of the Qin dynasty to the American revolution. However, I'd have to do major researches on those battlefields or just make the scenes not to graphic and stuff. But either way, research is still mandatory for such a ficlet. :p 
pennilee: (agreed)
Ugh; I want to get a CG doujinshi that was just released today (soprettysquee), and I'm planning to get it through a group order... but now that I've canceled my Paypal, I can no longer use that option anymore... so I went by CC (concealed cash), but the group order ends on the 5th of January! And the host wrote that she wants it coming several days before the deadline, so... ;u; But we live relatively close together (same state) so hopefully that can save me a day or two if she responds immediately. ;u; PLEASE. GAH. I WANT TO SEND IT OUT TOMORROW... BUT I NEED YOU TO REPLY FIRST. //claws hair out

Okie done with this little rant. I'll update this tomorrow to see if she can reply. Since it's Christmas and all, you know... people get kind of crazy during this time. :3 

I'm just livejournaling like crazy these days. xD 
pennilee: (awesome!)
Just pretty much finished Code Geass... didn't want to continue watching to R2, so I read the summary and am planning to get a couple manga for them probably not, but anyway xD ut either way, I've watched all of the R2 until episode 20. I know what'll happen afterwards, and I don't really like those five eps, so... even though I watched the scene in which Lelouch dies. :p Eh, I have mixed feelings about the death, it didn't really make sense to me on its concept of how the cause of his death will calm everyone else- well, theoretically speaking, that has some sense, but couldn't he have just atoned his sins by doing good? I mean, he had the power of an emperor- as long as he's not corrupted by it... he can do greater justice to this world. But then again, idk, didn't watch the last five episodes, so... but either way, I'm, in a sense, a witness- if that's his final choice, what can I do? :p

Anyway


 The thing I love about them is the fact that none of the characters are seemingly all good or all evil. It's not a classical evil/good fight, but rather, humans that are more than down-to-earth and fall easily to greed or power, even Lelouch, who is actually a bit ruthless and heartless... But I guess his loyalty and love to his family kind of makes up for that flaw. However, that's what makes the characters so much the more memorable- because we are thinking, along with them, their actions and their future. :)

Either way, it's hard to judge them because they're on the battlefield, and all of their beliefs, while selfish, is for their personal happiness/their family's happiness. Not even can you judge Charles + Marianne, since yes, even though they have abandoned their children, they dreamt of a world in which there would be eternal peace. They also loved themselves more, but... if you compare them seriously to any other cast of Code Geass, are they really any worse or evil than others? If, let's say, Lelouch, was in Charles' position, would he have done the same thing? I might never know, since Lelouch does not have a stable heart and he constantly changes his beliefs. But then again, that's human nature, isn't it? :)

... Another thing about the anime that I found quite ironic is that England was actually one of the first to come up with a parliamentary system in Europe/the world, even though it was quite limited in terms... That means England must have never been conquered by the Roman Empire or threw it out since the Roman Empire had significant influence on individualism and republicanism in England. o_o And that would also mean that either the American Revolution failed or never occurred in the first place, since the Holy Britannian Empire is located in the Americas... that means there is a possibility in no Alfred. T________T

So ya. History is wayyyy different in that timeline, and a little bit illogical, but either way the anime itself is very interesting. :3 I can't bear to watch the rest, but I love the idea and the characters in geneal. (especially Luluko + Luluko/Suzaku. //shot) 

Favorite pairings- Lelouch/Suzaku, Lelouch/Schneizel, Luluko/Suzaku, Luluko/Schneizel. I am pretty much willing to pair Luluko(Leloucia) with anyone. xD Except the girls. I don't really like yuri much, but I sometimes make exceptions... :p
