Lyrics: This is the interesting part!
Altogether they are from 4 different songs, and all from bands/aritsts I love. I don't think that all of these songs are so well-known, whatsoever, so if you manage to figure out which songs were included, I'll be impressed. ♥
I thought of changing the entire CSS at first, but then it seemed to work out with the altered bg and the new header, so I only changed the userpic/community image. I actually pretty much love how this turned out, though I'm not the one to credit with the "main" job. :P
But, still, this layout is a bit hyprocritical, because I've only seen two eps of Nurarihyon so far, LOL. Anyway, I'll explain later why I chose Yuki Onna and Nura as the main theme. (I actually wanted it to focus only on Yuki Onna, but this was the best picture I found of her, and it was this OTP. Hurr, I like it anyway. Moreover, I wanted to make it look a bit snowy/cold, given it's winter already.)

I'm not really in animanga-mood nowadays, but! While waiting for Gossip Girl's new season to come out, I accidentally had the chance to check out the (very) first ep of Merlin while I was at my Dad's, long long time ago. There I was like "hmmm, interestingggg", so a few weeks later, ((when I finally remembered I had something to DL)), I got my hands on the first season, and got hooked in an instant. I'll take Merlin over Gossip Girl anytime, seriously.
Even my parents like it, ahaha. My mother doesn't really like fantasy, but when I told her it had to do with King Arthur and Merlin, she joined my party. /o/ (As for my father, he is a fantasy-addict, so, yeah.) I don't remember watching a mediaval fantasy series before, but AGGGH. Merlin took over my life, and now, in the veryveryvery small free time I have, I'm doing my best catching up with all the Merlin (and Arthur, obviously *g*) goodness out there.
( Even moar Merlin-fangirling.Collapse )
Book-wise I'm reading About a Boy by Nick Hornby. I have 10 pages to finish, and then I shall watch the movie. ~ Anywho, I like(d) it a lot. I remembered some days ago that I had wanted to read it, I just kept forgetting (orz), but then something came over me and I started searching for it like crazy. oAo And didn't find it - but my mother did. Guess I'll have to get my hands on the other Nick Hornby books out there? (I know we have at least one more book by him, and I'll definitely read that after About a Boy.)
And music-wise I'm a KOKIA-fangirl right now. Too much, actually. I even got one of my Jap course-buddies addicted. ;D At least now I have somebody to go with to the concert LOL.
So, first comes UraBoku. Tsukumo is just so moe that I'm going to get nosebleeds, though I'm pretty sure that's physically impossible? 8D I just love that show, haha. <3 Mostly because of Tsukumo and the epic seiyuu. How come Suwabe Junichi isn't voicing anyone? Oh, well, it still isn't late. BUT! Hino Satoshi does have a role, fufu.
Talking about UraBoku, isn't it scary how creators have this "silent guy x sweets"-fetish? First Shiki, now Tsukumo. Not that I can complain, I love both. <3
There is a thread on MAL where people discuss who the best voice actors for Teru and Kurosaki would be IF Dengeki got animated, and someone mentioned Suwabe (yes, my first thought exactly lolol), Miyano (not that much) and NakaYuu. AHH, I never thought of NakaYuu, but he would fit Kurosaki so well! /end Dengeki-fangirling
I also love how Ono Daisuke uses his Shizou-voice when he is threatening
... I think this post is useless.
Anyway, I'm off to Croatia for a week. I'll be MIA till then.
Also, it has a totally epic menu, srsly. Look at this:
( Screenie.Collapse )
I was lost at first, but now that I understand how it goes, it's all kinds of awesome. It is said that Garnet Cradle has a similar menu/scene selection-thingy, BUT I don't have that installed, yet, so idk. We'll see. I should finish 蒼天の彼方, Bloody Call and Starry Sky before starting Garnet, so, uh. That's like 100 years away, especially since Souten is OMIGOSH long. No, seriously.
I'll be enjoying (?) my vacation from Thursday till next Tuesday/Wednesday (don't remember), so I won't be able to log on
( 羊でおやすみシリーズ ramblings. ~Collapse )
On another seiyuu- / music-related note, I got my hands on some great loot, thanks to Hibiki. Hakuouki OST, Character songs, rawr. Shounen Onmyouji character songs. 8D And Lil'B also released a new single, so I'm happppy. Yamapi, too, and it's REALLY good, imo. Though "One in a million" reminded me of another song, so I thought he was doing a cover
Yui's new CD is good, too, though I'm surprised that she sang I do it. I mean, she wrote that song for Stereopony, in the first place, no? So, uh. Not weird. But still impressive CD there. <3 Okay, I'll end my fangirling here, or I'll end up praising a hundred artists, haha.
Edit: I've just finished Kugami's good end, and after learning the name of Secret Chara-san, I'll be SO disappointed if he is not related to Kain. :|
