February went by blank! :| Buuut I’ll hold on to March even if it’s by a one-day strand.
I have (less than) a week to bring my hundred homely things back on track, half-way at least. (I allowed myself to binge a little Railgun before focusing—this first.)

You've read *checks* more than 3 books already?!?
Yes! 5 + manga currently. I would still have read more books than watched episodes if not for Railgun.
Although I didn’t even make any efforts before that series. The 4th episode of Last Exile was so boring I took weeks to finish it, unbelievable as that sounds. I wonder how I used to have the patience?

But, keeping up the relative counts, I’ve watched a string of Chinese films this year. Might keep it up until that surpasses the number of books.

In A3 it was Romeo and Julius, but still inspired by Romeo and Juliet
Heh, clearly so. And A3 was not inspired in DinA4 paper?

It's more a cute chasing your dream story
It did felt a bit fast in terms of development

You put it well then. Must truly be a chase.

Ah. We all want what we don't have.
I have even more instances of really not wanting what others have.

It usually isn't, but last month we got the most snow in like, three decades or something.
Ohh, must’ve been a sight. Was it a happy event for you?
Speaking of winter, I should change the Happy New Year wall picture already… And probably skip the one with ice and snow I had planned for the year’s second.

It's actually not quite that unique. Probably first of its kind to get an anime adaptation, but there are quite a few of these isekai villainess stories now. I know of at least two others just from the artists I follow.
I had to go back to January to find the title of this anime we were talking about! (“Isekai villainess” sounds like a fancy concept.)

>Instead I’d say I have an inner circle with no people to banish from it.
Circle of one?

Circle of only myself who thus can’t be banished? Close, but no. Let’s say circle with few enough/selective elements that I wouldn’t want to banish anyone. Getting an entry ticket into the circle is toooough though.

There's an Ikea where you live?!?!
There is! You stocked up chocolate, and I stocked up towels. I was tired of turquoise blue. (That particular hue anyway, since I also bought a mini cubical shelf in a darker shade that’ll look lovely as a book house.)

Oh found one. I didn't think she keeps these videos around after live streams but Wacom kept one. She teaches classes every year; as in, people actually pay to see her draw, so yeah, I don't think she keeps free videos around.
I had no idea about the exclusivity of it. Thanks for finding one!
Now, about the video itself… That’s a Wacom??? It’s HUGE! And somehow very entertaining to watch…
Lately I’ve been attempting to work on drawings with Illustrator and Photoshop (very bad at it. There are a million tools to pick from each time), but direct digital drawing looks much smoother.

Really, books? I know a couple of watch brands did that. I even wrote a blog on it a few years back. A lot of illustrators got free wrist watches in exchange for drawing promo illustrations. Basically a social media campaign.
Indeed, in the social media sphere there are lots of those. Maybe not so many products given for free for reviewing as those you mention and the books I’ve seen tagged “Received for free in exchange of an honest review” were. Did the wrist watches have anything special?
The differences about the books’ case is that it looked like anyone could do those reviews… Yet it seems unlikely.

I got some people edits approved randomly too. I don't think it was all of them but they approved most of my edits. One mod has been going through them I guess.
Still shocked my submission from three years ago was refused, now that I remember it. (Reason was valid, however. That one-shot I was adding separately must’ve showed up as part of a compilation muuuch later. But three years?? Worse than me with responses. Either way, I don’t care to add it to the list any more)

Nah, there's still Chinese New Year coming up :P
Lol, I had already commented on my super-delayed wall before. It’s delayed even for Chinese New Year now!

Ah this got long again. Sorry >.<
Don’t be! Despite how it surely looks like, length isn’t an issue. Plus, how absurd I’d feel if I had taken this long and it was a short comment on top of it :D.

Can I say that wall picture is a highly unrealistic drawing and we’re not in beach season yet >-<
KuroMayKami Jan 31, 3:51 PM
Clothbound sounds fancy. But not leatherbound? Cloth doesn't sound that sturdy
Leatherbound sounds like very old editions. But well, that comes from me having several dusty leatherbound books nearby despite not having seen any such that were new.

A comedy fact is that this year I’ve read more books than watched anime episodes.

I'm not aware that it's anime-inspiring, but I've heard of the book before.
They pick it regularly for theatre performances (in anime). Glass no Kamen has a whole arc with it.

Still working on winter. I guess I liked Koisuru Asteroid.
Hmm. I’d take a peek at the asteroid/constellations part, but that habit of showering any topic with “cutie” pouts…

Oh God no. If anything Shangri-la reaffirms my belief that older isn't better.
I’ll take your word on that one. I’m not so keen on Last Exile either. (But, unlike with all the rest, I was at least keen enough to try.)

Yall have good winter weather? I don't really like winter here.
It’s non-winter. So, to your standards, yes, “good winter”. Ironically, when I said winter weather was good, I was referring to a few days during which winter was actually present.

I thought it was not so cold where you are… or maybe where you were. I do recall you saying the cold isn’t good on your toes or fingers… It isn’t on mine, either.

Content matches the looks. It's a isekai (reverse) harem romantic comedy.
Indeed a universe of its own, genre-wise. Inhabited by clones especially.

There's a site that synchronizes video streaming to multiple users. And then just group chat on top.
And did the talk made the episode better?

I wish I have an inner circle to banish people from :/
Instead I’d say I have an inner circle with no people to banish from it.

(stocked up the last time I went to Ikea)
I went yesterday!

They are pro tools. Worth the cost to pros. My favorite artist uses a big one (as seen from live drawing videos).
If you come across one and it’s not too much trouble to send the link, I’d like to see a Wacom user in action.

Recently seen another company doing promotions where they send tablets to illustrators and have them draw and spread the word about the product. Kinda like a watch promotion I saw few years back.
Ah, I’ve read that being done with books.

Maybe two?
Maybe until month two.

But not much tea either, just like a tiny bit. Mostly warm water in terms of content and taste.
True for some, but the variants are infinite… Like the teapots in my house, at present.

Another random fact: I received a message from MAL about a manga submission request from… three years ago, at least (denying it, too). Wish I had registered when I read the manga in question somewhere. I possibly did, as it was obvious to me then that I’d want to know later, but can’t know where.

And I guess I’ll have to change my wall tomorrow. Announcing “Happy New Year” up until the end of January might be tolerable, but from there onwards…

You do well in displaying snow while you can.
KuroMayKami Jan 25, 11:18 AM
Ruh oh. What kind of books?
Classics I have been intrigued in for years in a boxed, clothbound edition. It pained me to see a few days ago that, after the prices rose the books themselves ran out. But that might not be final.

Does the anime-inspiring Wuthering Heights ring a bell to you?

Funny you should ask, because I'm about to find out :D
TELL ME. Did you find out?
I think I'm tired (very tired) of modern anime. I'm slightly attracted towards mid-old ones though. Such as that Shangri-la.

Finally got around to watching Winter 2020 shows after spending 3 months on Netflix backlog. Winter is pretty meh so far.
Winter weather isn't tho

I did watch Hamefura with a group before so I got a taste of something later in the year; I thought that was ok. IDK if that's shoujo but the MC's hit zone is pretty much everyone so it's got something for the yuri fans too.
The full title has little to do with it. Colourful looks. The content too?

>I did watch Hamefura with a group
How was this magical rendezvous conjured?

They did announce more projects with a PV in December, don't know if you saw it.
I saw nothing.

It's led to a trend where most shows get good and bad score reviews in the top 4 now (because of the two camps vote their top review). But the biggest negative is you will rarely find reviews newer than the day the airing ended in the top 4; early bird gets the worm, a lot of reviews are rushed out the door instead of being well written.
Indeed a pitiful side of the business.

VAMPIRES
I almost bought a deluxe edition of Hagio's Poe's Clan (pretty much just to buy something at the store, since I stepped inside for the first time in, eh, +1,5 years). But I didn't because of... vampires. Am I banished from your inner circle now?

Wait really? Wikipedia says it contains cocoa butter...
Wait really???

[Pssst: Cocoa butter is cream-coloured. It's possible.]

I just held a bar of white chocolate in my hand and I can confirm that "cocoa butter" is the second ingredient after the sugar overload. But I wouldn't have been surprised if it didn't fulfill even that bare minimum.

Well yeah, like the Wacom drawing tablets and tablet PCs with pen support
When I briefly investigated it I saw that the first of those costs more than a full tablet. Which made me question the point of it.

[I almost closed the tab in which I'm typing this, unsaved, right now. How many months would that have added?]

>Not a coffee drinker then?
Nope

Tea drinker? Or just orange juice drinker?

Cropped at my leisure, but it'll probably be like March or something before you respond lol
I love to contradict you whenever possible in this matter. It's not even February! (Nonetheless, I would've liked to contradict you sooner).

Edit: Ooooh you are using the pic in your profile! Now our profiles match (I have different pic from same artist)
And you have a new-and-new set!! I like the "new" part. But I prefer the wall picture.

Now we match in the white hair.

This man dropped more manga then read

~A~

Incidentally Code Geass is also on there... but I got my ripped BDs anyway :)
You finally ripped them at some point. But watched them too?

Ah but unlike discs chocolate actually has an expiration date
I never heed it.

Right, Code Geass without Lelouch is not Code Geass
Indeed.
It’s, in your approximate vocabulary, “milking off what Lelouch made possible.”

The films are just the beginning of their 10-year plan for new Code Geass content (although how many years has it been since the reboot?), there'll be more to the story probably
Sounds like fiction, but probably isn’t.

You mean after the site sold themselves to corporate owners?
So that’s what they did?

Hmm.... not really much of an improvement, and the most annoying one is they removed unhelpful button on reviews.
It’d probably annoy me too if I still read reviews on this site.

Aww you missed my last one [picture]
A few last ones likely.

It's actually not a blur effect. Check the tweet for the full size (it's like 7MP). There is a grainy pattern applied all over it though, I'm beginning to think that's intentionally done for some reason. I'm guessing either 1) it helps with detail retention during jpeg compression or 2) to prevent unauthorized use. Reason why I think it's intentional is because I've seen it used by other illustrators occasionally (i.e., effect on some pictures but not others).
That’s intriguing. Would like to check it if you upload a wall with such characteristics again some time soon.

Red eyes standout no matter the hair color I think.
But they don’t stand out… good.

The ABCs?

Come to think of it isn't there a reply from months ago that you haven't replied to yet?

You figured out what the ABCs were!

It felt more platonic than romantic. You are still on season 1?!?!? Guess you aren't kidding when you say you are busy
True. The series is hardly truly romantic. Only for a two-episode backstory. (There was more than one kiss in the end, but none made meaningful.)
I took forever to finish season 1, but I also don’t think I’ll go on with the series. The two main characters made the rest rather a letdown.

~B~

>I'm literally thinning out from the regularly maintained activity and focus, though.
...so, back to inconsistently consistent?

It was actually consistently consistent at that time (although not in terms of responses). But right now it’s consistently inconsistent.

7.

You can gasp now.

I might if I remembered what exactly had earned the privilege of that score.

Ah, Durarara! Yea I’ll gasp. But well, a good OP can do wonders. Vampire Knight’s EDs have pursued me to this day, though not enough to actually watch it.

Yeah what is white chocolate anyway.
What it is is unknown, but what it isn’t is chocolate.

Wonder if they have caffeine free dark chocolate.
Ehhh… Not sure they got that far in the sans-everything catalogue. Not a coffee drinker then?

Good question. The ending for one. Like whether or not she gets her head back.
I didn’t like her head the moment I saw it so that’s out of my interest. And the ED… which? Don’t recall them favourably. One sounded like K-pop.

What do you mean 2019 was SOOOOOOOOO last decade
Ahahaha. Feels more so now we’re in the 2021 ship.

The kicker is it's apparently all done on an iPad. Pro grade for sure.
Is there anything else one can draw with digitally other than an iPad? T^T


There’s my ramble through ABC. Crop at leisure.

And ~C~ was the tiny one, I suppose…?
KuroMayKami Jan 3, 11:47 AM
Picture noted!

You?
The same.
Alive and well but not receiving books for Christmas. I did order them... but they got lost. I might walk myself to a shop to see to new options and transport them personally.

I'm completely out of it, but I wondered recently. Were any good anime released during 2020?
KuroMayKami Jan 1, 12:05 PM
Happy New Year!!!



(I know, that's no ABC, but I don't want this to get out of schedule too.)

Alive and maybe receiving some illustration books for Christmas, I hope?

KuroMayKami Oct 5, 2020 2:03 PM
Yeah the one random thing I remember ikr
Can’t be the only one! (I’ve thought that so many times from reading the comment’s first line that it feels like I’ve already written it.)

I finally got Netflix access and there's a bunch of shows to watch there. By the time I'm done there I'll be over a year behind simulcast again.
Still the orderly process. Is there anything besides anime that you watch there?

I do have FMAB on discs.... Time to rip those lol
Still haven’t opened them!!

I’m like that with… chocolate?

Already seen Akito. It kinda irked me, don't remember exactly why. Corny writing or something.
I attempted to watch it, quite intently. It irked me too.
My highest point of curiosity was whether Lelouch would take any part in it. That he had none (if) bothered me. That he did but it was an unworthy part (if again) bothered me too.

Not surprising I didn’t finish it, right?

I think I seen the picture dramas back when I watched both seasons.
I feel like the picture dramas would taint the image I’ve managed to retain of the main series as an above-nonsense-quality anime… (And they’d make the franchise’s score drop severely.)

So I’ve stared at the videos, but never opened them for more than a few seconds.

As for recent movies, nope.
There’s always that intrigue of “What happens in that sequel? What do they do with the characters?” But I’m conviiiinced that finding out would harm it.

Try six years ago hah
((º □º;))
Didn’t think you said it because it’s actually possible (until I checked).
They really tamper with even basic settings comfortably on MAL. Do you think the site has improved since the staff became officially such?

Come to think of it if Code Geass came out this year instead of 2006 it'd probably be in the low 7s and panned by critics for the OP character and contrived writing. Kinda like SAO. How far have we come heh.
You'd really put them on the same level? I only know SAO indirectly from all the ruckus around it (now subsided), but I did see an episode or two and nothing charismatic overall nor remarkable script-wise (though I tend to always look down on game-centred fantasy worlds).


There must be like five anime films whose release I was awaiting and I’m now unaware of (reference to Kaijuu no Kodomo).


Lovely dress! And face! And blurred effect (again)!

Though I don’t think blonde hair matches red eyes. Do you? (Now you’ll come up with an example from, eh… that vampire chibi manga! But the hair might be white.)

I got busy on a really constant basis, and I’m still awful at managing the non-busy time (at present it’s mostly just recovering from the previous part and preparing for the next, even though it’s not that hard). So I’m disappointing everyone in terms of response rate :( (truly everyone…).
Regardless, next time I intend to do the ABCs.

I like the music too. (Although it’s really bad for when I’m trying to be sleepy, and not awake.)

"too bad I didn't have many video games in my childhood."
Is that a sign of your age or upbringing?

"Maybe that's why I couldn't get into High Score Girl."
I've read the manga. It might just be melodramatic writing.

"A lot of things aren't worth it in life, but at least anime is free"
Words to live by!

"O rly"
Ya rly
Kapodaco Sep 4, 2020 7:00 PM
"I just want to play my Steam backlog all day but I gotta do work or get laid off"
I just want to play the same 10 games from my childhood all day but I gotta give new shit a chance (I say as I play through Pokémon Silver for the umpteenth time).

"I'll be a year+ behind simulcast again."
You really do seem to watch (or try) pretty much anything. Is it ever worth it?

"...and I still haven't got around to rewatch Code Geass like I wanted to since years ago."
I did see the comment from KMK that she'd be willing to re-re-rewatch it with you to give you a boost. She's pretty reliable on a schedule, life obligations notwithstanding.
Kapodaco Sep 2, 2020 9:25 AM
"Goodwill?
Retail sure got more dangerous with combative customers.
"
Indeed. I still work there (unfortunately). Our customers aren't so much "combative' as they are stingy with the rules. Whether wearing their masks beneath their nose or trying on clothes over their bodies or huddling up against other people like it's whatever. Stuff like that.

"Probably won't see my coworkers again till next year, if ever, given that some companies are already allowing for indefinite WFH."
You don't have their numbers or anything?

"Easier to slack off due to being at home all day."
I feel this hardcore.

"On the whole watching a lot more anime than before. Maybe I'll finally conquer my backlog and catch up to the current season.... yeah, wishful thinking."
Literally just added 20+ titles to my "Anime Due for a Rewatch" list, lmao. I am digging my own grave.
KuroMayKami Sep 1, 2020 11:56 AM
Rewatching Code Geass is your random option?!?!
Yes!!
Just felt like it and thought "Why not try again?". It worked (enough to even go back to the first episodes I had already re-watched once).

You know I think I was talking about rewatching Code Geass some day with you and you've rewatched it twice already since then haha
Oh, you remember that. I recall every time I see it.

I think I wouldn't mind to re-re-repeat R1.

I don't know how I'd live without internet lol
It's easy. Though episodes you don't need internet to watch are required, heh.
I actually prepared a nice stack of films for myself, and then couldn't see them.

Did you ever or will you bother with Akito the Exiled, the abundant specials or those recent... somethings?

Edit: I can edit a comment from three days ago?
KuroMayKami Aug 29, 2020 2:34 PM
Aha, that many... So far I haven't had the occasion to finish even the second episode which I started on the same day as the first. I could've in the last couple of days, but I went for a random option...

Laptop-kun came back safely! Feels almost as good as new.
So laptop present, but currently without internet = no long comment yet.


EDIT: Future me will travel back three Earth rotations to prove the new expansion of regular comment editing.
Kapodaco Aug 27, 2020 8:14 PM
"SUGAR"

So good, yet so bad...

"but I read that Taylor Swift is in it as a CGI cat?"

And Jennifer Hudson, and James Corden, and Idris Elba, and Judi Dench, and Ian McKellen, and Rebel Wilson, and. . . yeah.

"And that none of the stars talk about the show."

Not sure what you mean by this. Outside the film? Well, it was horribly panned by critics and audiences, and bombed at the box office. Not exactly something that people would be proud to be a part of, probably.

"How's the pandemic treating ya?"

It has made working retail a lot more irritating. Otherwise, as an indoor cat, not much has changed. What about you?
