Novel for episode 11. )

I just started episode 12, but during Kenzan's phone call, that line isn't included. Huh.

I also went back to the first novel and Shouma simply says, "How could you say that in front of our sister?" in the first chapter.

Weird. Why are both lines in the anime and not in the novels?

The novels do harp on about "the twins being nothing alike," but that's really not much to go on with foreshadowing in comparison. I wonder why they made that choice, assuming it's going somewhere.

Episode 10 novel post / rambling / WAAAAAH WHY WASN'T THIS IN THE ANIME WAAAAAAAH. )

I don't feel like I even have to say Ikuhara is my FAVORITE FOREVER, and I do love this show, but the novels just make me consistently frustrated with the anime. I've been kind of rolling my eyes at Ikuhara's, "You can read the novels first because the anime will surpass your imagination!" because...no. I shouldn't need to be relying on the novels this much to understand what everyone is feeling. And when the novels have made me cry four times in the past three chapters, while the anime has only gotten tears out of me once, you're dropping the ball somewhere. :/

[livejournal.com profile] ofadoration asked if I was going to post about Blood+. I watched a fair amount of it while chatting with [livejournal.com profile] missdeep.

All I knew about Blood+ was from [livejournal.com profile] missdeep's LJ before viewing, which I summed up to her before watching as such:




MY MAGICAL EXPERIENCE WITH BLOOD+ )

In conclusion: THIS SHOW, I CAN'T EVEN.

(Bring it, CLAMP.)
meimichi: (shimotsuma + procrastinators unite)


SO GORGEOUS.

*w*

Because of the futon and tatami, 2chan has someone suggesting "a girl born to a normal family who dreams of being a princess, a la Shimotsuma?"

Even just in my icon the imagery looks kind of similar... *w*

Since Nokemono to Hanayome is a collab with Baby, obviously loli is something Ikuhara has an interest in, but if the anime has an influence too I'll die. Either way it looks GORGEOUS.

I wasn't expecting this at all since the girl's voice in the teasers (assumed to be Himari) is a bokuko (again)... A bokuko with a room like that...?!

Info on the series is still pretty much in lockdown mode, though I'll try to make a roundup post over there soonish collecting what's been announced. Some people are whining about the absurd amount of secrecy, but I'm just going ♥ OMG IT IS LIKE THE SECRECY FOR ADOLESCENCE MOKUSHIROKU EXCEPT EVEN MORESO, WAY NATSUKASHII, I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MANY YEARS IT'S BEEN. I'm wondering how close to the air date he can get before showing a single frame of actual animation, lol. (Still images don't count!)

Someone on 2ch commented on the "95" symbol on the teaser site (when Ikuhara was asked to explain it, he said "I can't say anything about that"): "A series that takes place in a subway, and '95'? As in '1995' and the sarin incident? ...no way, couldn't be, right?" Other people were like, "Yeah, no way, couldn't be..."

But I remember Ikuhara talking about it in interviews ages back during Utena several times, and he mentioned in passing that he saw the attack as an attempt "to change the world." Hrm. Not that I expect it to be explicitly referenced in any way, but I also doubt it's a coincidence. At minimum, it seems likely to at least be an inspiration for choosing the subway as the show's visual theme. Anyway, if it is related, it sounds like it'll be coming out of a similar headspace as Utena, with a particular social issue/event coloring the atmosphere. Cannot wait for this to start, I HAVE MISSED IKUHARA SO MUCH.
meimichi: (utena + repent all your sin)
Hahaha wow I don't even know what I think about this show.

MASSIVE TL;DR AHEAD

Puella Magi Madoka Magica. )

I think I'm gonna rewatch this and try to sort out my *~feelings~*, then move on to Blood+. Which since my knowledge of it is all from [livejournal.com profile] missdeep means I am pretty sure this show will require no actual thought whatsoever.

Strangely I think I read all of her reaction posts back in the day and while I remember basically everything about how moe David was in his apron and how awesome Julia is, I DON'T THINK I KNOW A SINGLE THING ABOUT THE PLOT OR MAIN CHARACTERS. Except that Hagi goes "..." a lot and Kai wants to be Saya's bandaid. (There are vampires in this show, right??)

My flist has been so adorbs this week. I've been running around like crazy (Mother's Day + stepdad's birthday + trip + work) and haven't actually commented to other peoples' *~feelings~* posts but I LOVE EVERYONE SO MUCH.

ngl, I still don't really believe it's over. This show has risen from the grave so many times that even now with literally hours to go, I don't believe it. I'm probably still going to be waiting until upfronts secretly believing they will pull a Seventh Heaven, despite knowing it's impossible (...OR IS IT?).

I'm getting on a plane in a bit, so I'm gonna be missing a lot of the pre-show countdown. I'm just gonna add my *~feelings~* post to the pile now:

This show is ridiculous, which is something we all totally recognize and then went ahead and kept on caring anyway. We lived through the GAYLEs, Lana's (SPOILER ALERT) pancaked parents, Stompy the Wonder Horse, the walls/sharks/darkness around Lex's pants, Mulana, the underground railroad, Stride gum, an endless quantity of SECRETS AND LIES, and (last here but certainly first in my heart) the fake baby.

And yet for a decade (despite perhaps our better judgment), we still didn't stop caring about that one girl on a mission, here to bring us the truth.

I'd never say this show is my favorite of all time (because lol no), and the fandom taken as a whole is totally off the wall, but... Just in terms of my own personal experience, I think this fandom has been and probably always will be most important to me. There will never be another like this. I'm so grateful for all the people I've met and everything we've accomplished as a group. ♥

Until Friday night...

BUT LOOK THE SCENE HAD A FOOTBALL I COULDN'T NOT DO IT

I don't even know why this popped into my head but then I HAD TO DO IT

OMG WTF

WHEN GOOGLEIMAGE SEARCH ATTACKS.

I briefly tried to consider if this was so wrong it was right since I ship it either way.

No. It is just a world of wrooooong.

BLAKE'S HAIR, I CANNOT EVEN. IF YOU WERE GOING TO GO THERE, HOW CAN YOU NOT MAKE SERENA = USAGI.
meimichi: (chloe + you're waiting on fate)
Is it still a homage if you're technically ripping off yourself??

I couldn't stop giggling with glee through this whole thing tonight. SO AWESOME.



Batgirl #3 vs Smallville 10x14: Masquerade )
meimichi: (lex + happily never after)
Also a longer press release was issued for MR's return, which has the same quotes as the original TVLine article, but this part is interesting:

Rosenbaum exited at the end of season seven after Lex confronted Clark (Tom Welling) in the Fortress of Solitude. Years of secrets came to a head as Clark’s former friend finally discovered the truth about Clark’s alien heritage. The rivalry between the two culminated into a final showdown and crumbled, literally, under an icy avalanche as the Fortress fell. Lex’s body was never found. Now, Lex has risen from the ashes to fulfill his place in destiny as Clark Kent’s greatest nemesis.

LEX'S BODY WAS NEVER FOUND

SOUNDS LIKE NEITHER DARTH NOR AN MR VERSION OF VOLDEMORT. :')

MY BB IS BACK, ACCEPT NO CRAPPY CLONED SUBSTITUTES

THE ONLY WAY THIS PRESS RELEASE COULD MAKE ME HAPPIER IS IF IT WERE AMENDED TO SAY, "YEARS OF SECRETS AND LIES CAME TO A HEAD..."
meimichi: (smallville + curse you underground railr)
Trying to figure out the tangled story of Lex clones and how they lead to MR!Lex at the finish line:

Me: I think Darth!Lex might be someone else entirely
Me: another clone gone wrong
T: and Lex has been puppet mastering all this time
T: i like that better
T: if darth wasn't real
Me: for some reason the clones think he's the original but I mean
Me: even Lana
Me: didn't survive the truck
Me: not for reals
T: that'd be a SMART retcon
T: true
Me: it was still her in there
Me: just a clone
Me: unless...
Me: UNLESS....
Me: OMG
Me: COULD IT BE
Me: THAT DIRECTLY
Me: UNDERNEATH
Me: THE TRUCK
Me: WAS A TRAPDOOR
Me: LEADING TO
Me: THE
Me: UNDERGROUND
Me: RAILROAD????
T: i love you sfm
T: that's perfect
Me: THEY WOULD DO IT TOO
Me: YOU FUCKING KNOW THEY WOULD
Me: "OUTSMARTED AGAIN BY THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD, CLARK!!! WHEN WILL YOU EVER LEARRRRRRRN"
T: i know right?
T: and we;d go
T: CONTINUITY!!!!
meimichi: (smallville + that is so not right)


FORGET HERMAN

THIS GUY IS MY NEW HERO FOR SMALLVILLE PROMOTION.

Last week it was, "TUNE IN TO FIND OUT IF CHLOE'S A TRAITOR!!!!!" in this super peppy voice and I couldn't stop laughing, but this week's is SO MUCH BETTER. Announcer dude is almost cracking up this time.

I CANNOT STOP REWATCHING THIS IT IS PRICELESS

"LEGITIMATELY TERRIBLE"
meimichi: (smallville + that is so not right)
Girls, girls. You're both pretty.

That said, please stop before I hit blackout.



(I tried to be fair to everyone, obviously I myself am guilty of like a third of these, lol)
meimichi: (chloe&clark + futures can change)
Oh, Smallville. With only eleven episodes left, it is hard to imagine a world without you.

A sentiment that only grows more strong today, when I realize that soon...

We will have to face a world without Herman. ;w;

Okay. I actually kind of like this poster and it's probably the best work Herman has ever done. The sentiment of NEO IS OUT, RED AND BLUE IS IN is pretty groovy. But it would not be Herman if Routh!Supes did not match with Tom's pose, like, at all.

I was like, "OH HERMAN. TO IMAGINE THIS COULD POSSIBLY BE THE FINAL PHOTOSHOP DISASTER..."

(TRUE, THERE WILL BE OTHER PHOTOSHOP DISASTERS, BUT NONE SHALL BE AS MEMORABLE AS HERMAN'S. )

I am also slightly disappointed in the "Destiny is now" tagline. COME ON, SHOW. YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS. We all remember THE SINGLE GREATEST AD CAMPAIGN OF OUR TIME. And when the CW launched with their EXTREMELY EDUCATIONAL campaign teaching us highly complex geometrical concepts!

TRY HARDER, SHOW. I KNOW YOU HAVE IT IN YOU TO BE EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS. ♥
meimichi: (chloe + you're waiting on fate)


FINIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISH.

287 posts in five days. I have been working on this for years in one form or another, I cannot believe it's finally actually done. Well, almost done. Caught up, rather.

I added a master post. It has all of the episode tags collected for easier browsing, and also has the list of all the meta tags along with my Chlois-related reasoning. I think there's a lot of interesting stuff there so those of you who are into that kind of thing should check it out. :)

(...I haven't logged into my regular tumblr for five days. ;w;)
meimichi: (chloe + her heart's like crazy paving)
I JUST WANT TO FINISH MY STUPID PROJECT. I know I was like, "I WILL FINISH BY THE END OF HIATUS!" but it's so much easier to do this as much at once as possible, because then it's way easier to remember what repeats where, and the names of all the tags. ;w;

SO YESTERDAY I CAPPED ALL OF S7, PUT TOGETHER THE GRAPHICS, UPLOADED AND TAGGED ALL OF IT BY THIS AFTERNOON...AND THEN TONIGHT I SAT AND CAPPED ALL OF S8 IN ONE SITTING. :(

WHEN THIS IS ALL OVER I SWEAR I AM GOING TO FORGET ALL OF THE HORRIFYING KNOWLEDGE I HAVE OF CHLOE'S EARRING COLLECTION, BECAUSE THAT MUST BE TAKING UP SO MUCH BRAIN REAL ESTATE.

ha ha ha also Lana has star earrings why so awesome show

Also, noticed this cap for the first time when I was capping Abyss:



Groovy, y/y? :D
meimichi: (chloe + on account of the rattlesnakes)


I've thus far been following the pattern of: make about 100 posts, go insane from trying to cap earrings, abandon project for two months, rinse, repeat. But I have a fairly long to-do list of SV fandom stuff I wanna finish before the show ends, so it's my goal to finish up to S10 by the end of hiatus.

Over the past two days, I uploaded the caps for all of S5 and S6. I also went back and tagged everything by season to make things a bit easier to find.

I already had the bracelet tag, but along that line of meta reasoning, now I've also added tags for:

+ turquoise stone jewelry
+ diamond shapes
+ heart shapes
+ butterflies
+ sun shapes (short now, but I know there's more later)
+ leaves

I considered doing flowers, and then was like, "LOL NO I SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING THAT FROM THE BEGINNING IT WOULD BE LIKE EVERY OTHER POST."

And I also tagged:

+ all of her coats
+ formal wear

If there's something else you'd like to see tag-wise, then let me know sooner rather than later while I'm still only 2/3rds through. :3
