Blogging for me will become minimalistic for the next week due to finals, then again in couple weeks due to sister's graduation, and again in July due to... JAPAN!!! This was so not a good time to get a blog. ><
Speaking of blogs... *glares at lunch bunch* When are you guys going to get one? Onegai? Before September? It'll make communication soo much easier!
Kurot. Blog. Pretty!!
Love your layout, Kim. mmm, Hakkai. *sigh*
I haven't seen Slam Dunk anime (was supposed to today, but due to delays I won't 'til at least Monday T.T), but I love the manga. I guess it's 'cos although I've never been on a basketball team, I know all the pain that Hana-chan's going through. Like when he's trying to learn how to do layups. I still can't do them, but his problem was that he had too much power. I don't have enough. ^^;; But there's so much cool stuff going on in it (Sendoh's passes! Ryota's speed! Gori's dunk!), not to mention the unbelievable slashiness of it all (RuHana! MitKo! JinKiyo!). I haven't gotten far enough in the manga to see his style change, but I have seen artbook scans. Damn...
And Mitsui's still hot. !^_^!
In other news, I got punched three times today. On the shoulder where I just got my shots. Itai! ><
A GOLD Dragon Lies Beneath!
I took the Inner Dragon online quiz and found out I am a Gold Dragon on the inside. My Inner Dragon is the most honorable of all. Golds are the third rarest of all the dragons (after Platinum and Chromatic dragons) and have a station in society that reflects their rarity. I am what one might call a Draconic Knight. Golds live by a strict code of chivalry and commitment. Remember Draco? Yep, Gold Dragon. My appearance is fearsome and all-mighty but I'd never stoop so low as to bring any harm to a human. I'm one of only two dragon types that are aligned "Lawful Good" and demonstrate great magical proficiency. My piety, beauty, wisdom, and inner strengrth are absolutely without parallel.
Of course, being a Gold Dragon isn't all high ethics and codes. I like to fly around scaring things, advise humans in their affairs, and shapeshift. Strike that, I LOVE to shapeshift. And I'm great at it. In fact, who's to say I'm not really a Gold Dragon after all? My favorable attributes are honor, truth, kindness, gold, wisdom, bravery, and trustworthiness. If anyone threatens or tries to kill me, I could strike back with my breath weapon - Fire. But then, no one's tried anything that stupid in the last couple thousand years. After all, I'm about 54 feet long.
ARGH! I still haven't seen ep. 40-52 ;_; I shall be getting subs in the vaguely near future, but until then, I shall stare at the uber-pretty picture of Kenren on your blog.
Kit, only if you'll have me! ^_~ It's 'cos of the translations for SS. *huggle* And you like Slam Dunk too? ^____^ It's my current obsession atm *points below* Sendoh was my fave chara for a while, but Mitsui's friggin' hot. Rukawa rarely looks bad. And shirtless artbook Hana is... wow. (brain: *sigh*) There must be more bloggerees out there who like SD...
Good luck, Ko! If it makes you feel any better, I would have gotten a job at the library even with the vacation, except that I'm leaving for school in a few months. -_- I think you'll get in. ^_^
I love these happy faces waaay too much. o_o;;
I rest my case. *snerk*
Mura, I don't remember exactly which episode. >.< I'd check right now, but my da's using the TV w/ the DVD player. ;_; It was somewhere between episodes 27-39, since that's all I have of second season (there were only two seasons, right?). It was the one about the boy and his sister; his sister was fighting Homura, but he was fighting the Saiyuki boyz in the snow... something like that. I wasn't quite awake when I was watching it last. -_-
'm buying fansubs... I limited meself to five, but I don't know what to get for the fifth one! Any recommendations?
Oi, Ko, I forgot to mention-- bring a jacket on the plane! Pretty much all major airlines keep the cabin temperature really cool, and their blankets are all scratchy. And depending on which airline you're using, you might get free stuff! ^_^ With Virgin, we got a toothbrush, toothpaste, a little rubber ducky, ear plugs, notepad/pen, lip balm, and nifty yellow socks. ^^
The only part I really remember from Saiyuki season 2 is when Goku starts ranting on about something, while behind him, Hakkai and Gojyo just look at each other and smile. ^__________^
Subtitling is laughable, but still not nearly as bad as ep. 24-26. Those didn't even make sense. -_- At least prolix is an actual word, even if no one ever uses it!
That is an awesome layout. ^___^
In other news, whoever wrote the score for Noir... marry me? Please??

Didn't come out quite how I wanted... -_- For those of you who don't know, Kubota and Tokito are from Seitokai Shikkoubu (Executive Committee) and Wild Adapter, both by Minekura (same mangaka as Saiyuki). Kubo's on the right. He's cool. ^^
