Oh summer, how boring you will become in TV-land. No, let me expand on that, you'll be dull and lifeless. I thought it would be fun to make a post on my thoughts of this years season finales of Bones, Supernatural, and Criminal Minds since they're the only series I watch religiously everything they comes on on a regular basis. Fun to be had~

Finales of Bones, Supernatural, and Criminal Minds - in that orderCollapse )

These days the only breaks I get are from reading manga since I'm so busy with work. 8D;; I really wasn't expecting a flashback chapter at this point in the series since so much is already happening but I guess anytime is a good time to bring in some good old memories. Maybe I was expecting a flashback chapter but not like this and it was a welcome change~

Sorry kids. I meant to keep the image small but there were too many scenes I loved so the end result is this. QAQ Either way this chapter was AWESOME.

Naruto Chapter 538Collapse )

I have to say, this chapter actually reminded me why I got into this series. Just the beginning friendship/rivalry between Naruto and Sasuke - it's what caught my attention in the first place and this really reminded me of that moment when I said, "The relationship between these two is awesome. I'm reading more."

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY APPROVE 100% OF THIS CHAPTER.

Ino-Shika-Cho is back! *Q* The last few chapters were a little dull but this makes me much happier considering Asuma is in the area so he probably knows what's going on. Meaning Team 10 drama is on the way! YYYYYEEESSSSSS ♥ ♥ ♥ It sounds terrible but I think that'll give more necessary character transformations for them! Exciting~

But what's more is that Supernatural the Animation supposedly came out yesterday in Japan. I know it's probably been less than 24 hours since the first dvd came out but I'm hoping someone subtitles it and puts it SOMEWHERE. Either that or I'll probably get frustrated enough to buy just the first volume since it's only $13.99 at Yes Asia. Dear CW or WB Home Video - why didn't you work with your Japanese counter-parts to do a simultaneous release? It really would have been a good idea consider Pada-chan (my new nickname for Jared lol OTL;;;) is dubbing the entire series, is he not? And now we have to wait until... whenever you guys want too? UNFAIR. D8<

Give me a week - I'll probably get frustrated enough and buy it since my Mac can play region 2 dvd's. I'm already thinking of it, but if I get the anime when it's released here in North America - then I have a DVD that's fairly useless. *rolls* I don't know what to ddddddoooooooooooo OTL;;;;

[MAJOR EDIT]: I found the first episode~ the sound is really off but it doesn't matter~ NOW WATCH IT FOOLS. Life is now complete. Screencap time! Only two from the ending 'cause I'm busy today. QAQ



Aaaannnnddd I'm looking forward to two weeks from now! It means Pokemon Black (and White) is coming out!! *A* I preordered it a month ago so I'm really excited! I need to get a DS travel case considering that I start work full-time for a month. So much to buy so little time~

After watching some of the trailers and feeling the need for watching a new mecha series, I decided that I needed to watch all of Gundam 00. I was curious so I decided to give it a try as the first anime of 2011. No spoilers. I don't think so anyway. ;>_>

To say the least, I was very impressed. I watched it all and loved it all. I spent four whole days in front of my computer, watching the dubbed version of the series in between working. I really love the mix of the conflict between religion, technology and genetics. It really combines the main reasons for the wars of Gundam Wing and Gundam SEED. It didn't just cover one aspect but all aspects and while some answers went unknown, it really didn't matter in the end. It was a great story that I felt had a good flow rather than SEED Destiny, which felt really messed up at times.

I really love the character designs too. Very crisp, very clean and in a way, it brought me back to the days of Wing but in a very modern way. Each character was unique in each of their own ways and I really love the minor changes in the facial look of the characters as they aged (Feldt and Setsuna in S2). The voice actors really did a fabulous job and didn't make me cringe so that's always a good sign.

The music is just really fitting for the series. I actually bought Gundam 00 Complete Best because I really loved it that much. You can never go wrong with UVERworld, Tommy Heavenly6 and See-Saw. It was also really interesting that Yuna Ito provided the last ending for the series, and the lyrics just really fit with the theme of the series.

Normally when I watch a Gundam series, I love a select few characters and hate the rest. That was not the case with Gundam 00 - I loved almost all of the characters and obviously there were some that I hated (Ali Al-Sachaaz and Ribbons Almark) and others I was neutral (the Innovators) but I would say I loved 90% of the characters. I have three favorite characters:

  • Graham Aker - he never stays down and I can't help but love him for it (Isn't there some sort of saying along those lines?). He has a passion for a challenge and while it may include fighting, it makes him my favorite character. It doesn't help that my favorite voice actor (Paul Dobson) plays him so well ♥ He's my top favorite.
  • Lockon Stratos (Neil Dylandy) - a nice balance to the other Meisters and I think he's the heart of the group. Without him, they won't stay together - he's too awesome for words. He reminds me of a more mature Duo but with neater hair.
  • Patrick Colasour - he's humorous; I love how he survives every battle every time, and tries to ask his superior Kati out every time. It didn't help that when his moible suit explodes I imagined he would say, "Team Colasour's blasting off again!" ala Pokemon's Team Rocket. He really lightens a serious series and I honestly think this guy (along with Graham) deserves a spin-off.


I also came to ship some couples. It's inevitable that series I watch, there's a couple I must ship. I tried to come up with more, but once I go through the series again, maybe I'll come up with more:

  • Patrick Colasour x Kati Mannequin - so just much lol. Seriously, I really think they're hilarious together. Just the way Patrick announces his arrive and Kati's facial expression highly amuses me. We clearly know who wears the pants in that relationship. lol
  • Allelujah Haptism x Marie Parfacy - they're really adorable together. I really love that even though she's going through so much, he's still there for her and in the end, she's still there for him.


So that said: GO WATCH IT FOOLS. I refuse to watch the movie though. If you've seen it, and you've read this post, you'll know why. ;_______; That is all.

I didn't originally plan this, but I really wanted to take pictures of some of the Christmas decorations that we have. A lot of them we've collective from family and friends over the years, so they're very precious to us. However, as I took pictures, I realized I needed a model. I thought that because WALL-E was the only Christmas ornament that looked fairly natural without a stand or additional characters attached, I went with him. Plus he's too darn cute!

I just position WALL-E where I could and took some pictures. But my camera was being finicky so I wasn't able to take as many as I liked. I would have taken some of WALL-E on top of presents, but sadly I only came up with the idea AFTER we opened presents.



My grandmother gave me a new plush angel ornament and I thought that she looked a lot like Eve. I think this is where it all started!





The photoshoot was fun so I think what I'll do is buy a figurine or two and start doing photoshoots once in a while to keep practicing photography!

Title: Another SPN Christmas
Artist: momigi as wonderclover
Characters: Dean Winchester and Sam Winchester from Supernatural
Rating: E for everyone!
Disclaimer: I don't own Supernatural. Sure wish I did though. :P
Link: Another SPN Christmas

One of my favourite Christmas specials is, of course, the Supernatural Christmas special. I can never get over it.

I decided to have Sam dressed in a Santa suit because I thought Dean would easily rock out the elf shoes and be happy wearing them. c: I decided to draw Sam with a forced smile because I remembered him saying he didn't really like Christmas. I originally was going to include Castiel but the drawing I did of him sucked and then I realized that with Sam's hairstyle, Cas wouldn't be around at this time, so I last minute removed him from the drawing. :I Kind of happy I did though~

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays~

Title: A Vampire Diaries Christmas
Artist: momigi as wonderclover
Characters: Elena Gilbert, Stefan Salvatore, Damon Salvatore, Alaric Saltzman, Jeremy Gilbert from The Vampire Diaries
Rating: E for everyone!
Disclaimer: I don't own the Vampire Diaries. Sure wish I did though. :P
Link: A Vampire Diaries Christmas

The second December hit, I started drawing this little piece for The Vampire Diaries. I kind of imagined Alaric getting some (comic) revenge on Damon by making him into a snow man and leaving him there while Stefan and Elena ignored him even as he called out to them. Was going to also add Bonnie, Caroline, Matt and Tyler but I got lazy. Also used more season 1 pictures for hair references. I suck at drawing mens hair. LOL

BTW Jeremy is just sitting on a snow mound behind his sister. ;>_> No issues with proportion just thought it would be cool if he sat in the corner, ignoring everyone while sitting on a snow mound WHILE licking a candy cane. He seems like the type to do it. 8D
