New chapter of one piece is out!

*sigh* After two years of being under the radar, the strawhat crew is back to being pursued by everyone. >__<

The crew’s going to Fishman Island. And, of course, the place just had to be underwater. I wonder what would happen in the island… and on the journey towards that place. Half the crew have eaten Logia fruits and are pretty much vulnerable underwater.

Today marks the beginning of a month-long writing frenzy!  XD

This is my second time participating in NaNoWriMo.   Last year, however, I wasn’t able to qualify.  *sigh*  I wasn’t able to complete 50,000 words.  *sigh*  oh well…

This year, though, I’m going to try my best.  I am soooo gonna aim for more than 50,000.  Maybe about 60,000?  *laughs*  I hope I won’t run into some problems this year.  Last year, Haku wasn’t into giving me his cooperation.  And, since I share Sync with my brother, I had to do some of the novel by hand.  It reminded me to be thankful for the technology that man enjoys now. *laughs*  I still need to work with some parts of my plot and some of the characters.  ugh.  Too much procrastinating this year.  I wasn’t able to fully prepare.  *sigh*  Oh well~

Anyway, the month’s only just begun.  I think I’d be able to work things out… i hope… *laughs*  I need to start writing now!  Wish me luck! XD

Okay. So I’ve just read Skip Beat’s 165th chapter.  And, darn it!  I am sooooooo worried.  What on earth’s gonna happen next?!

In chapter 163, we learn that Ren would be filming a dangerous scene involving a car chase.  And, in that chapter, we also saw how Princess Rosa’s clasp came off.  Princess Rosa is the gift Kyoko received from Ren on her birthday.  There were also talks of protection charms and such between Kyoko and Ren.  And there was also Ren thinking of Kyoko as his protection charm, or something like that.

In chapter 164, there was the shoot for the car chase began, and, damn  it.  A kid ran into the street while Dark Moon was filming the said car chase.  Of course, things happened.  An accident occurred.  And people are left hanging.

Now, it’s chapter 165. Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve seen this series around for a while now.  It popped out when I was looking for anime and manga belonging to the supernatural genre.  Though the title sounded cool, I wasn’t really interested in watching it.  But, I was bored and had a bit of time in my hands so I decided, why not?

One Piece 598

Everyone, rejoice!  One Piece is back~!  yay~! After a huge time skip, the Straw hat pirates are getting back together on Saboady archipelago!

So, anyway, in this chapter we see the gang… changed… lawl  Brooke’s a rock star.  *laughs*  seriously.  I wonder what happened the last two years.  I do recall him being kidnapped to be sold somewhere.  And~ people faint at his concert!  *laughs*

Usopp seems to be a cool person now.  *laughs*  Not that I don’t like him before the time skip but he’s really~ promising.  Seems like he’s packing some serious arsenal.  Oh, and his apperance changed a bit.  I think that’s one of the factors that makes him much more cooler than two years ago.

Nami’s still the same, but she’s got longer hair.  And~ she could be much more helpful in fights now.  :3

Sanji seems to be the same.  He’s still chasing after women.  *laughs*  Poor Sanji… he did spend two years in an island populated by okami.  I thought that it’s either he turn into one of them or die due to the lack of women.  *laughs*  Still haven’t seen him in action though… I think he’d be greatly improved.  Oh, and he’s now sporting a stache but even hotter than ever~ :3

Zoro seems the same.  But I’ve only seen him in the chapter cover.  But I think he’d be even greater with his swords [oh lawl~] since he’s been trained by Hawk-eye.  I sooo~ can’t wait to see him again~ *gushes like the fangirl she is*

Oh, I’ve only caught a glimpse of Franky so I can’t say anything much about him.

Chopper looks the same as ever… but~ he’s only been seen in his normal form.  I wonder how he’ll be when he fights?  :3  *laughs*

Robin is still being chased after by people.  Hmm.. if I remember correctly, she was with Dragon’s group… right?  Maybe that’s why people have been following her.  Still, she looks cool as ever.  :3  I wonder what happened to her…

Of course, there’s Luffy.  Seems like he’s mastered his Haki… right?  He actually said that he learned all of what Rayleigh had to teach him in half a year.  😀  He’s really cool.  And still only thinks about food.  *laughs*  Oh. and Hancock is still in  love with him.  Of, but I think there’s been an improvement in their relationship, well.. if you can call it an improvement. :3  Hancock can now actually make a suggestion that she’d be a good wife.  And~ wait for it~  Luffy actually tells her he’s not gonna marry her.  *laughs*

And trouble’s definitely gonna start brewing.  There’s this group who are Straw hat  impostors and are recruiting people.  Nami and Usopp meet them in a bar and got into a scuffle with them.  Chopper also bumped into some of them: fake Zoro, fake Sanji, fake Robin, and fake Chopper.  The people looking for Robin actually think that the fake Robin’s the real one and abducts her.  Chopper actually thought that the fakes were real and, worrying about the fake Robin, runs after her.  Oh, and fake Luffy bumps into Luffy in the streets.  And he even had the gall to shout at Luffy!  *laughs*

Oh, and talk of the Straw hat crew recruiting members have been circulating around.  And the Marines have heard of this new.  Obviously, Luffy’s gang is still a threat despite going out of the radar for three years.  Will they return to Saboady archipelago and cause trouble for Luffy and the gang?

Uwaaa~  I just can’t wait for the next chapter~!  Two years is a a long time and, of course, the gang’s been training for that two years.  I soooo~ wanna see them in action again~! :3

I started watching a new anime today.  Well, not exactly new.  I sorta watched it before but dropped it after a few episodes… because my internet connection that time was giving me problems.  *sigh*  Oh well… *laughs*

Earlier today, I started watching Nishi no Yoki Majo.  I know, it’s been around for a while.  And it doesn’t really seem to be the type of anime I usually go for but… *shrugs*  I mean, the title itself if the kind of title I usually avoid.  Admit it, the title of a series can also somehow affect one’s curiosity, right?  Anyway, I thought it’s going to be one of those things that I usually hate.  Like those overly shoujo anime with a very stereotypical shoujo female character in a very fantasy-like setting and having a lot~ of the guys fall for her.  *laughs*

So far, the main character, Firiel, seems okay.  She just happen to find out that she’s the daughter of a previous candidate for queen , then her father went missing, her childhood friend was marked [I think….?] as a heretic, found out that she had nobles for cousins, and was then sent to an all-girls school that teaches women to seduce men.  *laughs*  So far so good~ :3  I wonder how she’ll turn up in later episodes…?  Will she disappoint and become a boring character?  Maybe, maybe not.

Firiel, although the heroine of the story, is not really one of my faves.  As far as episode 5 is concerned, my fave characters would be Roux, Adel, and maybe Marie and Eusis…?  *laughs*

Roux would be my fave cause he’s just cute and he’s the type of guy I like.  Though he seems to be the typical smart guy with a horrible disposition but also treasures the person he loves so much, I just can’t help it.  Stereotype or not, he is cool.  Besides, Rumpelsti Ltskin?  Sooo~ cool~!  Oh, and he looks soooo~ pretty as a girl! *laughs*

Adel’s another of my fave ’cause she looks like a loli and yet she doesn’t seem that loli to me…. wait… huh?  *laughs*  doesn’t make sense, right?  *laughs*  Oh well, she just doesn’t seem to be what she is.  She looks weak but she was able to go through that wicked all-girls school that teaches women to seduce men… *laughs*  just had to say that~!  :3  Oh, and she writes BL!  Ha!

Marie didn’t have much screen time, but lately, she’s shown to transfer to Firiel’s school in order to watch over the cross-dressing Roux.  :3  What I like about her is that she’s…. straightforward I think.  *lols at first episode* :3

EusisXRoux?! :3 >///<

Oh, and Eusis.  Apparently, Adel’s BL story, which she wrote for two days straight, was inspired when she saw Roux and Eusis.  *laughs*  Anyway, I can actually see something for this pairing on the scene where he challenges Roux to a game of chess.  *laughs*  Oh, and yes.  The goodness that would come out from both of them is the only reason why I like him.  I’m not really that convinced on his character.  Anyway, Roux and Eusis could end up together but~, of course~ Roux is in love with Firiel.  Anyway, if Firiel were ever to disappear, Eusis would look nice with Roux.  Oh, but Lot is still there~.  He’s Eusis’ friend and he would make a great seme for Eusis.  oh wow… an unexpected triangle?  *laughs*

Anyway, that’s all there is for now.  Have to finish the entire series to realllly~ formulate my opinion of everything~! :3

Oh. and I also started a new manga today.  It’s called Tora to Ookami.  It’s about this girl, Mii, a fujoshi, who met two college guys, Tora and Ookami, in her family’s restaurant, Himawari.  Both guys are pretty.  Really.  And~ they seem to be much MUCH closer than being friends.  *laughs*

Tora’s fun.  He’s the light-haired guy in the pic.  He seems like an airhead and he can eat food for five people.  But appearances are really deceiving.  Despite that, he’s a genius when it comes to art.  In one of the chapters, Mii delivers food for Tora and was really surprised that he makes really awesome paintings.

Ookami’s the dark-haired guy.  He’s a bit of a grouch.  He’s the guy who brought [the passed-out-due-to-hunger] Tora in Mii’s restaurant.  At first, he was really rude to Mii but he seemed to tone it down a bit later on.  He’s still a big meanie, though.

I think the series is still new.  Only four chapters are scanlated.  So, it’s that or people just aren’t interested in translatingthis one.  *shrugs* Either way, I hope scanlation groups would really pick up this series.  It’s really funny and interesting.  Tora and Ookami are too close to each other that it’s a bit unbelievable they’re only friends.  However, they did deny the fact that they’re lovers after Mii let it slip that they didn’t need to be shy in front of her since she has books about such things.  *laughs*  Ah, but it’s also interesting if Mii would fall for one of them or if Tora and/or Ookami would fall for Mii.  Either way, I think Mii has a bit of feelings for both of them.  Particularly Tora, maybe?  *shrugs*

Oh, but chapter 4 proved to be interesting.  A new character appeared, one that’s also really~ good in art.  And~ she seems to be interested in Tora.  AND~ Tora seems to admire her as well..  Could it be…?  Is this Ookami’s rival?  *laugh*

Oh, and I love~ Mii’s grandma. She actually knows her BL stuff.  Apparently, she knows about Mii’s love for BL and might have even read her manga.  She actually said “they’re like the boys in the manga you love, Mii”.  *laughs*  And~ Mii actually started a novel using Tora and Ookami as the characters.  Like really REALLY BL stuff, though not that hardcore.  And, lawl, Mii’s grandma actually read them!  *laughs*
