A friend and I were discussing/gushing about the upcoming Sailor Moon reboot. While we were talking, these drawings happened.

Princess Jellyfish Review:

Every female nerd should watch this series. Seriously, this show does an AMAZING job of capturing the dynamic of a bunch of oddball, dorky chicks living under one roof. It’s hard to articulate my love for this show in a traditional review, so I’ll just be lazy and make a list of reasons why I think this should be required viewing for everyone…

Here's an art post of random silly things I've drawn lately. We'll start with Adventure Time!




Now for some non-fanart original stuff!

HUMANIZED RESCUE RANGERS

Here's some half-finished "Humanized Rescue Rangers" doodles that I forgot about until I dug them out of one of my MANY "unfinished ideas" folders. LOL

There's no story behind this. I just had a random urge to draw Sailor Moon and rolled with it...

That Sea of Chaos scene wasn't nearly as romantic as y'all thought it was....







I imagine that the romance wore off once Gourry and Lina realized what a crappy situation they were stuck in.

I drew this comic immediately after watching episode 12 of Princess Tutu (and I had the other episodes on in the background while finishing it). I know I can't be the only one who wanted to see this ending when watching that episode for the first time:

This comic is a response to a discussion I had with [livejournal.com profile] sarajayechan regarding a hilariously bad Jessie/James Pokemon ship fic. Enjoy!

I saw The Secret World of Arrietty on Sunday and I thought I'd give my two cents on it here (and leave out the spoilers for those who haven't seen it).

Arrietty had the same "slice of life" tone and feel as Totoro. Nothing really "big" happened until the end. Most of the fun in this film comes from watching the creative way the tiny race of Borrowers build their homes from found human objects (in that respect, it reminded me of Rescue Rangers. Some of the rooms in the Borrowers' home even resembled Ranger HQ! XD).
The plot is very simple; but it's executed well and it never gets boring. I was in a theatre full of small children and I didn't hear any of them whine about being bored or start fussing once the movie started.

STUDIO DEEN HEAD SELF-FINANCES ANIME IN WIFE'S MEMORY

Hiroshi Hasegawa, the 59-year-old president of Studio DEEN, is self-financing an anime retelling of local Japanese folklore to honor a promise to his wife Michiko, who passed away in May. Hasegawa is aiming to finish this anime about the stories of western Tottori Prefecture — his birthplace — and Yamagata Prefecture's Tsuruoka City — his wife's birthplace — next summer.

Michiko Hasegawa recounted to her husband the folk tales of a dog that hunted supernatural creatures. Those stories had inspired the traditional "Inu Matsuri" ("Dog Festival") at her hometown. In folklore told at Hiroshi Hasegawa's birthplace in Tottori, the god of the mountain Daisen gave the people only a handful of rice. However, the people cooked the rice in a pot and made it grow seven times larger. The couple discussed making a children's anime of their birthplaces' folk stories such as these.

Hasegawa planned to start production last winter, but his wife's health took a turn for the worse. She passed away in May at the age of 59. Hasegawa postponed the anime project during her illness, but then resolved to continue work in her memory. Production started this past August, and the staff, which includes animators from Tottori, is currently drawing the storyboards. The Nihonkai Shimbun paper published part of the storyboards on Tuesday.

The anime will feature six stories from towns in western Tottori (Daisen, Hino, Yonago) and five stories from Tsuruoka City. The episodes will each run about 10 minutes long, and will feature live-action segments. Hasegawa plans to sponsor the free distribution of the anime to educational and social institutions.

I am so watching this the moment I can do so legally. I really hope this project succeeds. Lord knows Mr Hasegawa can use all the cheering up he can get.

Check out this fan-made trailer for a live-action Pokemon movie. Considering this was made by a bunch of fans for kicks, it's surprisingly well-made (especially the CGI Pokemon):

Day 16 - What is the absolute worst pairing?
Matt Ishida and Sora Takenouchi from Digimon season 2



Sora and Matt are the ones on the far left. And I have no idea why Sora is posed as if she's in desperate need of a potty break. O_o


The ending of Digimon 02 is legendary for it’s what the fuckery; and not just because of the shipping issues (a lot of plot threads were left dangling in the end).

My sister and I were big Tai/Sora fans when we were kids watching Digimon on Saturday morning. Tai and Sora were heavily pushed in the first season and the movie (one side plot in the movie involved Tai sending Sora a love letter!). And, while we didn’t see much of Sora and Tai together in the second season (mainly because all the focus was on the new group of kids), the implication was still there. But then in the final episode of season two we see a “25 years later” flash forward and Sora is married to….Matt. And Matt (the average kid who spent his teen years in a rock band) grew up to be an astronaut. What the hell!?

Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did?
Amelia and Zelgadis (Slayers)




I was never against this ship. But at first I wasn’t keen on shipping them because it felt like more of a “pair the spares” type of thing than a genuine romance that had chemistry and was built over time like Lina and Gourry’s. But their interactions in Revolution/Evolution-R (and one of Crispin Freeman’s ad-libs in Premium) finally succeeded in winning me over.

Heck, in Revo/Evo-R, I think they have a little bit more romantic chemistry than Lina and Gourry. Maybe it’s just me, but the way Amelia apparently fell out of puppy love with him and started noticing his annoying faults (and wouldn’t hesitate to point them out) made them seem like an old married couple! It’s certainly a far cry from the coy, awkward, blushing mutual crush they had going on in the previous 3 seasons. It made Amelia come across as more mature and a better match for Zelgadis than the Amelia we met in seasons 1-3.

I've debated plunking down the $200+ it would cost for me to get all the Utena DVDs I don't have yet. But now I don't have to because Right Stuf is putting out a boxset soon. With the remastered Japanese video to boot. HUZZAH!

It's strange. Normally I hate confusing mindfu*k anime where all the characters are psychological messes (watching Evangelion made me want to punch a hole in my TV); but I enjoyed watching Utena. Maybe it's because the show was pretty. Or maybe it's the nostalgia I feel when I remember watching this as a teenager and giggling at Rachael Lillis and other Pokemon VAs saying bizarre lines and naughty words. Either way, I've wanted to collect this show for ages and soon I'll be able to do that without searching the internet for out-of-print copies and praying I don't pay for bootlegs. I love Right Stuf! ^_^

If any of you are thinking about checking this show out, don't be put off by all the haters who like to savage the dub. Aside from Anthy's VA, all of the American actors rock. The Shiori episodes are especially fun to watch dubbed because they feature Lisa Ortiz as a very convincing (and very freaky) villain. And Crispin Freeman is just awesome as Touga the Man-Whore. ~_^

I had a lot of respect for Carl Macek and part of me wants to attend his public memorial in Sherman Oaks this weekend. But I feel like it would be weird/disrespectful for me to go to a funeral as a "fan" when his grieving family members are going to be there mourning him. Perhaps I should just donate to the fund to help his widow cover his funeral expenses instead. 

RIP Carl. You handled the idiot fanboy venom in a way far classier than I would have.
