How can someone go totally crazy over a manga character?!! No offense to the others who suffer the same predicament. LOL!
I am going to have my iPhone 4 skin changed from :
Today started out shitty for me, and it got shittier as the day progressed. I just found out some really bad news and because I gave my word, I'm not gonna breathe a word. Not even online. :(
But thankfully, I have plentiful of Saiyuki fics to cheer me up.
I have rroselavy's Mad Season, kirathaune's The Reluctant Tourist, ljer - squallfan1's The Youkai Inside You and drabbles too.... ^^
Thank you, girls.
So there I was - packing and admiring my artbooks and mangas.
Vol 1 - 10 of Saiyuki Reload by Chuangyi - check
Vol 1 - 10 of Saiyuki Reload by ZeroSum - check
Vol 7 - 10 of Saiyuki Reload by TokyoPop....... where the fuck is my Vol 10?????
I spent 30 minutes hunting high and low looking for the elusive manga. I even called my son who was at a gathering to ask if he took it. I searched for a while more before giving up and continued with my packing.
5 minutes later............ I suddenly remembered that TokyoPop has not even released Vol 10. WTF??!!! WTF??!!! What the hell was I thinking?????
There you go. My bimbo moment of the week....................
- Leave a comment saying "What's up?!"
- I'll ask you five questions to satisfy my curiosity.
- Update your journal with the answers to your questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions.
(I'm skipping the above cos most of my f-list is already oncaeseria's list and would have already participated if they are keen. True that the questions asked would have been different, but like I said, this is my lame excuse. LOL!!!)
caeseria asked me the following and I answered:
1. Anime or Manga?
Anime. Cos I'm a sucker for beautifully drawn and detailed animation and better still, with a kickass OP and ED theme. And I relate better to the character when they put a voice to the face. You have no idea how much I fell in love with Sanzo's as well as Lelouch Lamperouge's voice...... Makes my knees go weakkkkkk......
2. What's your favourite scene from Saiyuki?
The Rikudo one. I'm a sucker for angst. Sanzo getting critically injured, Goku going berserk, Kanzeon frenching Sanzo against his will (woohoo!!) - dun you just love the gut wrenching feeling over such scenes??? I do! LOL!!!
3. If you could live anywhere in the world, money not an issue, where would it be and why?
In a nice house/cottage on the outskirts of Tuscany?? Not because of it's rich artistic and architectural culture - I have no grand allusions of having any knowledge nor any appreciation of such - I am such a boor, aren't I?? *grins*
It seems like a beautiful enough place, the pace of life seems relaxed enough where I can laze around idly with my husband doing nothing. That and with my Internet access, I'm in paradise! (Whether I've got the correct perception or not, I dunno. Blame it on the movies. Ha Ha Ha)
4. What's your favourite piece of clothing?
Singlet and cotton boxers. You will see me in this ensemble 365 days a year whenever I'm at home. Comfort is everything.
5. What song do you most associate with your OTP?
I'm a 100% Sanzo whore. So I dun really have a Saiyuki OTP cos I absolutely adore Sanzo with either Goku, Hakkai or Gojyo. Hence my fave song whenever I think of any one pairing is Daughtry's What About Now. Why?? Cos the song is angsty enough (Did I mention that I'm a sucker for angst??) and fits in nicely with any one pairing. LOL!!!!!
Thinking back, I fell in love with the series despite the poorly drawn characters. I guess this is testimony of how good the story is.
Alrighty.... back to my Genso-marathon. I still have 39 episodes to go. ;)
Anyway, this was roughly done as I wanted to see if I could get it right. (My edits could be better, I swear) =^_^=
Lastly, many thanks to samsarapine & keire_ke for recommending GIMP to moi. ^_^ *hugs*
