I've only needed these for years, oi ... Takes a looong time to build up to the stupid lenses I need, though.

That said! My prescription has actually improved again, which, well -- given what I was like as a wee polyp and what they did to me for years to forestall disaster, improvement is always a bonus. Also I apparently have a clean bill of health as far as my eyes indicate.

Unfortunately now I'm sitting here with insanely dilated pupils and everything is wtf, lol

Netflix to Produce 30 'New' Anime Series for 2018 Release

Well, this confirms (for the time being anyway) that nu!StS is going to release next year, for what that's worth. Of course -- Netflix being Netflix -- fuck only knows it could be at any given time during next year, blah.

Directly related, we have an English voice cast for the main Bronzes and Saori, may the gods save us all.

the guy who voiced Doctor Victor for Shun? holy shit I think I may approve of this

... omg there's a lot of Fire Emblem and Bravely in here

... omg Owain is going to be Shiryuu 8333

given earlier conversation ...

You may get: Fic is very likely! At least a drabble 83 Or meta, or -- depending on what you poke me about -- meta burbling, or recs, or gamerules bits/suggestions or the like. There's a chance~ of icon(s) but as you can see from most of mine, my icons are kind of the opposite of fancy, lol

Please leave me: A fandom, a character, a fannish question about some detail or other, you can try with a ship but I kind of suck at writing shipping things that read as shippy (but I will try!) -- multiple requests are fine, I'll get at least one of them tackled for you *grin* You can leave actual prompts, or just a fandom/whatever, whichever floats your boat. Or you can just say "Fic or Treat!", roll your dice and take your chances ;3

Light is on for: [community profile] monthlysupergo folks, flisters, folks tossed at this post by other people, most anyone really -- knock yourselves out 83

Fandoms, etc.: Azure Striker Gunvolt, Rockman/Mega Man (Classic, X, Zero), Saint Seiya (any flavour but Episode G and Next Dimension), Final Fantasy (original, II, IV, VII, Dissidia, Theatrhythm, Brave Exvius), Bravely series (including Four Heroes Of Light), Gundam Wing/00/SEED Astray, Fire Emblem (Jugdral, Archenea including Awakening time period, Heroes), Transformers Sunbow!G1/Dreamwave/"generic G1", Kingdom Hearts, King of Fighters, Voltron Force, Tales of Destiny, Robotech (all generations), Yoroiden Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors, Casshern SINS, Infini-T Force, Seven Princes of the Thousand-Year Labyrinth, RG Veda -- my AO3 is a good place to see possibilities, I spose? Or feel free to poke me and check, if you have an idea because I could probably make this list even longer, lol.

Other stuff: any of my original works, Ancient Egypt (especially Dynasty 18), dinosaurs and other extinct beasties, food and anthropology thereof, bees, Legend of the Five Rings, Exalted, D&D, worldbuilding

Other info: I don't do porn, because I don't get it and therefore fail at it and want to do decently for your treats, folks ;3 And aside from that, my hard DNWs request-wise are basically no rape (and don't pull 'noncon' on me, that's still rape) and no painfully-obvious issuefic-type requests. Aside from those, knock yourselves out ~

Fic or Treat!

You may get: Fic! (drabbles-or-longer), icons, recs, meta, picspam, etc.

Please leave me: A fandom, pairing, character and/or prompt, or a general request. Multiple requests are fine! Or just leave a 'fic or treat' and you could get anything! (I'll peek at your profile interests and go from there~)

Light is on for: everyone from SuperGo, everyone in my dwircle, anyone wandering by! No need to have your own door post. Don't be shy!

Fandoms, etc.: Saint Seiya, Final Fantasy VII/AC, Final Fantasy VIII, Gundam SEED/Astray/Destiny, Gundam 00, Twin Signal, Kiddy Grade, Macross/Frontier, Generator Gawl, Gundam Build Fighters, Voltron: Legendary Defender, Tekkaman Blade II, any of my original stuff, anything with dragons or robots/mecha, or float me an inquiry because I'm sure there's plenty I haven't listed.

That dawning moment of horror when you realize that everything that annoyed the living fuck out of you in FE: Fates' incomprehensible, nonexistent "plot" is also everything that annoys the living fuck out of you about Legendary Defender.

Except LD is even worse and doesn't even have Laslow, Odin or Kaze. Or a ragamuffin in a lobster suit.

that wonderful facepalming time ...

... when you are eternally grateful that fandom --

-- where by "fandom" I mean "the network of this particular strain of fanfiction-and-et cetera-creating fans who like to think they are all that exists of 'fannishness'" --

-- has consistently, insistently ignored even the very existence of one of your favorite new things, because that means you are spared the screaming harpy madness of "fandom" going frothing insane at the very existence of one of your favorite characters due to "fandom's" inability, these days, to appreciate either nuance or the fact that said character is already having the piss taken out of them by the rest of the cast because this shit is funny.

So I am content to stay in my little nook over here enjoying the thing. No greater fandom presence required or desired, thanks, sad as it may be to say so.

*lalala ~*

I totally bombed out of pulling anyone from the gacha (Sigurd why must you hide from me) but that's okie because they'll be sticking around --

And through the power of clever people on the interwebs I know that Ayra and Arden are also lurking in there somewhere and Arvis is definitely going to be a GHB omg omg


But wait! There's more!

The first Exvius Halloween banner hits this Friday! 83 And the dev team is saying -- if I understand correctly -- that last year's units will be coming back (second week banner?) ~


I need Nichol. And Jake. But ye gods almighty will I grate my face against the game to try and get my blood-drinker Lasswell oh yes ~~~

I mean I may fail -- I'm not pouring huge amounts of money into the game, hell no -- but by fuck am I going to use everything I do have at my disposal in the attempt 83333

now, Ice Knight Lassie after the new year, that's going to be a different thing altogether

Pumpkins. Pumpkins fucking everywhere here and -- even worse -- with all these pumpkins and haybales and ~*harvest decorations*~ comes the need for extra security til the end of the fucking month which means I have an idiot up my arse and getting in my face every goddamn night.

To watch fucking pumpkins.

Because of course this is the city of savages, in case I've never mentioned it before.

Oh and tonight especially was ~*Nocturne*~ aka when the city fills with pissy, prissy, self-absorbed mincing ~*artists*~ and their displays all fucking night and of course there was a show in my damn courtyard. With the pumpkins. And the annoying extra body.

Combine this with slamming my head in a door over the shoggothian mess that one of my oldest fandoms has been turned into and the other goddamned fucking invasive and ridiculous bullshit of the last few days, and yeeaaaaah having some fucking rando from the company in my space is not helping things.

I'm in a grand mood to write Very Dead Sigurd now, though.

If I ever get a fucking chance.

I need to dig out my to-do list...

I picked up a few things from the sale shelves at the library yesterday, including a two-disc soundtrack for Fantasia, which was the 50th anniversary digital remaster from 1990. I don't want to know how much someone paid for it originally, but for fifty cents, I consider it an epic score! (er, literally!)

Voltron S4 sure was a thing-- the sort of thing I'll be picking bits out of for a while, likely. It definitely sold me a few shares in Matt/Pidge, deargods.

Since Dragonball S2 arrived, we've been watching that-- with everything else going on, it's nice to be able to sit back and laugh at a guy with nyoi bo stuck in his arse. ^^;;

Oh, and also a 'horror' movie called Teeth, about vagina dentata. I actually rather liked it. Boycritter finds it the scariest movie ever, as apparently he'd never run into the concept of vagina dentata before?

Me: This isn't as much a horror movie as it is a metaphor for growing up with a wish for more control over your body and environment.

Other than it being Sen & Nadleeh's 8th anniversary, in real time, (Happy Anniversary, you two. I knew you'd be fine~) today has been so astoundingly unimpressive and underwhelming that I think I'm just going to go over there-- *vague pointing* --and do anything other than continue today-ing.

holy. shit.

maybe Roberto might actually be black in this movieverse edit: damnit, FOX DX at least you got the right country this time but would it kill you to get Sunspot right just once?

Edit the second: it occurs to me that most of the ol flist is probably wondering why I'm going off the walls; the answer is that 1) I'm old, 2) proper New Mutants has been my pie-in-the-sky wish for years, and 3) here is an article about the Demon Bear Saga.

Suffice it to say that this will either be fucking amazing or skullfuckingly terrible -- but FOX did just give us Logan, so ...

Ai No Kusabi? again? really ~? 83

[personal profile] taichara
Well well well! Imagine my surprise to be browsing around Anime News Network while at work last night only to discover that Media Blasters is going to dub Ai No Kusabi -- and this is not the OAVs I'm familiar with, but a remake that came about in 2012 which Media Blasters has already done a sub release for! Which, somehow, I've missed completely for half a decade, wtf.

My predictable reaction, and response thereto:

[personal profile] taichara: wait, how in the hell did I not know about an AnK remake?
[personal profile] eliyes: dark sorcery?

Because you see, AnK is A Thing That Happens in my life in strange and entertaining and mysterious ways, lol ;3 I'm not a "fan", exactly -- the porn parts used to be funny and are now more like boring, and aside from the basic framework which certainly is "bizarre 80s scifi" enough to be right up my alley, it's not exactly an engaging read/watch and frankly the English translations of the novels are pretty much universally panned as terrible. (I have the first two anyway X3)

What AnK is, is a holdover from my very first forays into fandom back in '95-'96. The OAVs were the great white whale of the june/yaoi fannish branch and arguably one of the great white whales of anime fandom in general despite the subject material because they were so damn hard to get hold of (talk about a restricted circulation), and goooood~ luck ever expecting to encounter the novels. The best source was Aestheticism (I miss that site, and I miss even more the site before they locked down so much of it behind needing scanned IDs and the like); hell, Aestheticism's character bios and world summaries went a long way towards making AnK sound a hell of a lot more interesting, and developed, than it really is, lol. It sounded fun, especially the computer running shit, the OAV art was stunning, and it was the great white whale of the time.

There's a grand story in when I first saw the OAVs also, back in 1999 at Katsucon; the sound of half or more of the audience at the screening fleeing behind where we sat once the porn kicked in is hilarity that will live in my hindbrain forever. It's not like the guys weren't warned, but did they listen? Noooooo ~~~ *ahahaha*

So, AnK is kind of a thing I look on with fond affection, even though it's kind of not at all deserving of its legendary status in many ways.

But wait! There's more!

Imagine my surprise to be poking Amazon quickly to see what there was to be seen on the subject (conclusion: novels still insanely priced in the secondary market, lol) and --

And and and --

Holy shit Kira Takenouchi has put her hellforsaken fan-novel series Taming Riki on fucking Amazon as recently as last year.

(note that Kira is also still claiming that DMP "gave her permission" to publish the things, as if they actually own the rights to AnK. if you ever needed a good reason to never buy books from DMP this is it, if true I still doubt it, because I don't give a good goddamn that they have [had?] the English publication rights, that doesn't give them actual rights over the IP. fuck that.)

Kira Takenouchi is also a class-A fandom wanker of the kind seldom seen in this benighted era, who screwed over royally the "yaoi publishing press" she was running (Yaoi House) in spectacular and explosive fashion and for a loooong time was the jaw-dropping gift that kept on giving. There used to be whole journals dedicated to tracking her and how she was screwing writers and customers over, but my links are either gone or degraded -- here's a highlight, though:

Publishing House Alert: Yaoi House LLC @ Dear Author (make sure you read the comments ~)

Googling various combinations of her name, "Yaoi House", and similar will turn up various of LJ/DW posts concerning the fallout, besides; buyer beware on reading those, of course!

So you see, in its own way AnK is just a Thing that keeps happening and I'm both perfectly fine with this and still kind of boggling at myself that I somehow missed a remake ... which was put on hiatus with no explanation after the fourth episode, by the by, just to show that AnK is still the wtf gift that keeps on giving ~

Of course I snagged the last copy Amazon.ca had in stock, though.

I mean, what else was I going to do, let it escape again? ;3~


Your stop for the annual poetry fic challenge!
