Bleach, oh Bleach... after all these years, I still love you so dearly...♥

^_^ Back in 2004, I got to watch the first episode of Bleach as it aired, as I was in Japan then, staying with a host family whose daughter liked anime quite well...

after that, it's been on and off with Bleach for me... for a time I actually watched as it aired - while I was in Japan, of course, but also at home, downloading as soon as the episode came online and watching it as soon as possible.

but a lot of times, I would also accumulate a bunch of episodes (no time to watch right a way, and then I was suddenly so behind I wasn't able to really catch up...) and then watch them in marathon fashion.

so, sometime last year, (or the year before? ^^;) I left off at about episode 250...(after marathoning about 50 episodes if I remember right...).

last weekend? yeah, I suddenly felt the intense NEED to watch Bleach again. I downloaded all the episodes I was missing in one day (around 60 - there are 343 out - XD the mind somewhat boggles at this number...) and started watching again.

and as everytime before, I'm once again totally caught up in it, enthralled by it, in love with it. ^__^ I watched almost 50 episodes since last Saturday...XD

AND IT'S THE BIG BATTLE NOW (er...again after the Zanpakutou arc cut in between)... :D

and what made me write this entry? they just had an episode, where they summarized all of Ichigo's important battles... and that made me realize just how long I've been watching and loving this show. ♥♥♥

And that just makes me happy. ^_^


A/N: maybe I should have said this from the beginning... today was a particularly good day to watch Bleach, as it's easier to watch TV when holding an ice pack to your jaw than doing anything else that requires both hands (computer, turning pages on a book, cleaning etc.)...

I had some dental surgery this morning (they had to cut off the tip of the root of one of my teeth because it kept getting infected, even after I had a root canal done on that tooth, within my jaw bone. -.-" so, she actually had to drill a hole into the bone in order to remove the offending tip and the inflamed tissue around it (which apparently almost resembled a cyst...) and then fill it with something that can't get inflamed....

I really really hope this does the trick this time, as this is the tooth I had a root canal done 6 years ago, had said root canal revised (aka filling removed and redone!) last winter because it had gotten inflamed, and then had to go back to the dentist again a couple of weeks ago because there was yet another inflammation. -.-"

So, I'm on pain killers now and feeling as if someone has punched me in the face. *sigh*

anyway, enough of yucky teeth stories... there's still stuff I need to do and there is also a birthday party the boy and I need to show up tonight - at least for a little while. ^^;

she gave me Hitsugaya Toushirou (Bleach) )
haraamis: (Natsume - gentle breeze)
good news first:

my most recent fangirl moment as I'm catching up with things...

Tanuma: If only I could see it, too...
Natsume: He's quite the pretty boy, you know
Tanuma: I see, it's a good thing he's not a girl. I would have felt a little bit jealous.

*grins* Now, I know it's not meant like that but, but....^_________^ And I just love Natsume. He makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over.

Skip Beat just gives me one aww-moment after the other when I'm not too caught up wanting to beat some sense into those people. Seriously. XD Can't you just get over yourselves and get together already? ♥ ♥!

I'm also slowly catching up with Gundam 00 (ep. 12) and Macross Frontier (ep. 20)...

All in all, however, I'm kind of missing real fangirling. It's not that there aren't shows I enjoy watching, and I do have aww and omg moments here and there (see above), but it seems like it's been forever since I got really caught up in something that I can squee over, go looking for fanfic/fanart like I have nothing better to do, make up my own stories etc...

The last time I felt really enthusiastic about something fannish was Supernatural, but that was quite a while ago. Now I haven't even watched the most recent episodes of the show, although I still love Sam/Dean. I still read the occasional fanfic (usually HP or SPN), but while I do enjoy it, I rarely get caught up in it the way I used to. Even Natsume, who I totally adore can't make me feel compelled to try and find my way into the fandom.

So, I'm watching other people squee over fandom related things and can't help feeling a little bit lost, because it used to be such a big part of my life, and I really miss the feeling of totally getting into a fandom. There's still liking and love....but no obsessing over and there bloody well SHOULD BE! T_T my life feels incomplete this way.

come back to me, fandom love. please? pretty please? ;_;

clicky click for a bunch of bullet points )
Have a wonderful day, everyone!

haraamis: (pissed)
What. The. Fuck.

I can't watch Naruto Shippuuden on Crunchyroll for free. And I don't mean the simulcast, which I totally understand that you have to pay for it.

No, I mean not ANY Naruto Shippuuden episode, no matter how old.

Once again we get screwed over for not being in the US, even though they said "world wide access".

Now, I know $7/month is not that much, BUT IT'S TOO FUCKING MUCH CONSIDERING HOW MUCH I ALREADY PAY FOR TV AND INTERNET! Especially since I often watch anime on the train where I don't have internet, so streaming is generally not really an option for me.

I don't mind waiting a week or two to watch new episodes, so I can watch them for free. Really, I don't. But this? NOT COOL!

meme time!

haraamis: (KH)
because I don't have time. :P
and because I requested from several people myself. ^_^


Name me a character A and a character B (preferably from the same series, preferably from a series I'm familiar with) and I will write a note/letter/e-mail/restraining order, written from A to B.


I'll take the chance and say I'm willing to do crossovers. I do trust you not to try and simply stump me with the most unlikely request you can come up with. ^^;

***

Also,

Happy Birthday, nee-nee!
*snuggleloves* Much, much love and then some! I hope you have a wonderful day, lady. ♥♥!

did you miss me? :P

haraamis: (Past Bedtime)
Ah, I was gently reminded that I haven't updated in quite a while. Since I could never deny the lovely lady who made the request, I'm here, as promised. ♥


But although a lot has happened since my last entry, I still kind of feel like I don't have anything important to say. Too much going on in my head, perhaps?

I'm going tol give it a try, anyway.


what mara has been up to )

Anyway, that's it for now. ^^; I did write more than expected.... but I really need to go sleep now, as I've been exhausted for the better part of the evening but unwilling to go to bed just yet. And just look at the time now....e.e nighty night.

P.S. I'm too tired to read all the way through again, so I apologize in advance for any glaring typos or spelling errors....or weird sentences, for that matter. ^^; *toddles*
haraamis: (VK - Kaname)
Are you tired of this yet? :P


Spoiler free. ^_^

The yay!

one )


the ...ok.

two )


...and the not so yay.

three )


So, anything I'm missing? Anything you think I just need to watch? 'Cause my list isn't long enough yet....*cough*

***

Also, I've done something rather stupid. *sigh* I started to play Final Fantasy XII..... Now, I knew why I didn't start until now. Because I know how quickly I get hooked on these games. >.<. I'm about 6 hours in (not counting the hours I spend dying over and over because I was too proud to look at the walk through and thought I had to go somewhere where I didn't need to go. -.-") and already addicted. The blame goes ALL to [livejournal.com profile] kedriaa. Hah! There. :P *smooch*

I so don't have time for this, though. *headdesk*
haraamis: (whee!)
Vampire Knight = ♥♥♥♥♥
I'm almost caught up with the manga (2 more chapters to go), and I'm really curious and looking forward to what they are gonna do with the anime from here on.

Nabari no Ou= ♥♥♥♥ Oh, Miharu... ♥!

S.A. ~Special A~ = ♥♥♥

Neo Angelique = ♥♥♥
I've only seen two episodes, but I like it better than the earlier Angelique series... omg, pretty men....*_*

Also, we have an addition to Teh List: Toshokan Sensou ^_~

^_______________^

Now, it's exactly because of episodes like this one that I still prefer the anime to the manga by far. Fighting scenes are just so much cooler when they're animated and in color.


[Edit] MANGA SPOILERS IN COMMENTS!

Uh...

Back, safe and sound, and incredibly busy. The days before Christmas are going to KILL me. >.<.

I forgot my towel at [livejournal.com profile] iniq's, so she'll have to come visit me soon and bring it with her. *smirk*

***

We watched all of Season 1 of Supernatural over the weekend, plus the first episode of Season 2, and also some interviews and stuff... *thud*

I KNOW why I don't watch TV shows very often. Because when I do I fall. And I fall HARD.

With anime, despite how much in love I am with certain shows and characters, there's always somewhere in the back of my mind the knowledge that it's not real. The characters can't be real. (*cough* maybe with the exception of Wufei, who's become so much a part of me it's scary....) Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my anime. I am deeply in love with those characters, too; seeing them suffer breaks my heart (oh Fay...) and seeing them happy makes me happy, as well. But there is a certain distance.

But with TV shows, everything is so much more REAL. They are people in flesh and blood and seem so much more touchable. So much more RIGHT THERE. So very human.

So now, my head is full of Sam and Dean and Dean and Sam and, oh, Jared and Jensen and NOTHING ELSE, even though I should study for my finals, finish up my yuletide fic, catch up on finish [livejournal.com profile] belina's advent calendar, write a final paper, do homework etc.

Boys? This is really not a good time. I have obligations, you know? *headdesk*
haraamis: (well well)
And yes, I am procrastinating. Nothing new, I know, but I felt the need to share. *cough* Moving on.

Now, I could whine and complain about how busy I am and such, and there are things in my life that I wish would just go away, but I much prefer to share happy things. So, the happy you get. And in bullets, too! ^___^

things that have made me happy recently )

bullets!

Because I love those posts [livejournal.com profile] merith does all the time. ^_^

here be bullet news for you )

Still in love...

haraamis: (Initial D)
... with Initial D. So very much. *__*

I finished the series (well, 4th stage) today.

My Ryousuke, Takumi, and Keisuke love knows no bounds! *flails* God, I wish there was more good ficcage out there. T_T

I can't say much more than that I just loved every second of this series. The races, the tension, and especially the character development and growth. Oh Takumi. Oh Keisuke. You guys... ♥!

And the message at the end of the final episode fills me with glee... See you again...it said. Hee!

Anyway. Bed now. I shall tell the tale of my adventures at the spa tomorrow some other time. ^^;

I want to go home...

Friday, 20 July 2007 03:37 pm
haraamis: (Kame - lazy)
So. I'm at work.

I would rather not be at work. I usually don't mind my job, but today is one of those days where you don't feel like working at all, no matter how much you like your job. It's hot. And stuffy. And I can see the glittering lake from my office window. *pout* No fair.

Anyway, I got back from Austria yesterday (yes, yes, I completely forgot to make an entry that I was going in the first place. ^^; I was going to last Friday, but then things got insanely busy at work and I never got around doing it.) Much fun was had, as always when I'm with [livejournal.com profile] iniq *squish* We went to Vienna (one day), we went swimming in the river (two days), we had icecream (every day), we went shopping (a lot) and generally enjoyed being lazy. ^___^

Tomorrow morning I'm flying to Germany to attend a wedding (whee, pretty dress!) I'll be back Sunday night.

***

On the fannish front...>_> can I say it again? OMG!INITIAL D! *_* I finished 2nd stage this morning on the train and couldn't help having a peek at the first episode of 4th stage. Unfortunately, I only have the first 5 eps of 4th stage so far. *prods download*

Aaaand, I want fic now. Good fic. Involving Takahashi Ryousuke. With black hair (wtf, 2nd stage?!). Oh, and Keisuke. Or Takumi. Or both of them. *glee*

***

Did I mention I didn't want to be at work at all? Yes? ^^; Yes.

haraamis: (can't be serious)
o.O

What the hell was that?!
haraamis: (Kame - Obsession)
and oh, FANGIRLING! ^___^

So. I started to watch Initial D. *_*

Yes, yes, I know I'm years late. :P Sue me.

massive fangirling inside )

***

I'm working full time at the moment, so I'm not home much. I'm taking advantage of [livejournal.com profile] belina's generosity and staying with her most nights during the week. There's so much construction around the trainstation in Bern at the moment that it takes me at least 2 hours to get to work. One way. >.<. I'll have to endure it tomorrow and Tuesday, though, since I have choir practice tomorrow night. *sigh* I'm glad it's only last and this week. And another 3 weeks in August. Oh well.

***

And as if I didn't have enough distraction from what I am supposed to do... [livejournal.com profile] roostergirl, this should amuse you.

why mara should not be allowed to shop at amazon... )

That's it. The day needs more hours. A lot more hours. Please? Pretty please? *whimper*

Sweet!

Sunday, 1 July 2007 02:19 pm
haraamis: (whee!)
omg, omg, OMG!

I just found out that my new DVD player plays .avi files! It didn't say that in the manual...

*happy dance* I can watch my anime on my TV now! *____*

You have no idea how excited I am over this.

Must try later if it plays .mkv as well.... probably not, though. ~.~

[Edit] Ok, not all .avi files... some codecs/audio formats seem not to be supported. But hey, it's a start. ^_____^

Meme time!

Since I've replied to this meme all over the place, I guess it's only fair to offer some answers myself. ^^;

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudocanon.

This is open to any universe I've written in or the characters in general so please specify if you want a particular context.
