So does anyone want to tell me why Shin Petshop 8 has been out for like a week and no one told me?







YEAH. I THOUGHT SO. FFFFFFFFFF.

It's ordered now, and that's what counts.

Have been moving stuff, and organising stuff, and being generally too lazy to keep up with this much for the last week or so, so... hello, I'm still alive, follow me on Twitter if you're desperately interested.
cheloya: (PETSHOP >> *cough*)
Shin Petshop of Horrors vol. 7 just came out in Japan. It will be with me by Friday because the Japanese shipping is pricey and incredibly fast.

Training today was pretty dull, but I think it'll pick up quickly. We're being taught by Aurelien, who went through orientation with me, which is good. ^^ He's a smart cookie, and he explains things well.

And now... Merlin and then bed. Because damn, I am tired.
cheloya: (PETSHOP >> *cough*)

Haven't had much time to read or translate the new volumes, really, but I think the highlight of v6 is pretty much Wu Fei being dragged around, like, Disneyland, by a pet who is also an assassin. Lao-san looks really cute without his glasses, and without his hair slicked back. Seriously. ♥ I am slowly falling into this man's thrall. CHIN QUIETLY SLIPPING COUNT D GIFTS ON THE SIDE HELPS NOTHING. XD It's like Wu Fei barges in, rants and rages, takes up time, and then Chin-san just quietly hands over a box of tarts just before Wu Fei leaves. I'm starting to wonder if he's not perfectly aware of what Count D is, and just... bribing in order to keep Wu Fei out of trouble. XD I like Chin-san.

High of v3 continues to be Femto, who is adorable. Seriously. XD He's just... such a cat. I approve. No major translation sjdfhjd, but probably only because I haven't read v3 as closely as I had v2. XD

I suspect that v7 may actually be the last one, which is concerning. :\ I haven't been able to see much of the overall plot this series, but... well, I suppose I wouldn't have seen most of it in the first series, either? And it's not the same this series, either. There's been hardly any mention of Sofu, and mentions of Papa faded out around v4.

God, that panel. ;_;


Off to work again today, but I hope you're all having good weekends. Especially my [insanejournal.com profile] squeakelala and my [insanejournal.com profile] ignite and my [insanejournal.com profile] howl_for_words. Get well soon, and try not to worry too much. *snuzzle*
cheloya: (DN >> asplode)

1) Only one person in my crit group showed up today. :(

2) I miss writing D/Vesca way more than anyone should really miss writing characters who only show up for five chapters of a manga series.

3) Five minutes after saying that he preferred analogue to digital, D went out and bought a computer. Because Wu Fei's lackey told him he woud be able to order exotic sweets over the internet.

Petshop of Horrors: THE AWESOMEST.

4) I get [insanejournal.com profile] kessira in my crit group for line edits! WOO HOO! (My psychic powers consisted of eyeballing Craig and waving the appropriate number over her head when he went around numbering us for groups. XD I think he was a little unnerved.)

5) I have been so busy that I haven't even finished reading Shin Petshop v6 yet. it arrived eight hours ago.

6) I realised on the way home that I am now equipped to cosplay not Count D, but Nue Ehr, and nearly had a laughing fit on the bus. I can has be psycho sister nao? 8DDDD I would play the part so well...

7) So, who wants to be my da geh?

[EDIT] 8) I NEED CORAMBIS MORE THAN I NEED TO KEEP BREATHING.

9) I cannot write Mildmay. BUT IT IS GREAT FUN NONETHELESS.

SHIN PETSHOP VOLUME SIX

AHIN PETSHOOSFD HFSLADDFHßldsfjshasfhask TYPING ABILITY WHAT TYPING ABILITY





...well, there went MY mind for the afternoon...

WHO VOTES MEME IN HONOUR? I DO.

COMMENT WITH A PETSHOP OF HORRORS PROMPT. GO, GUYS.


[EDIT]



I want this quote on a more attractive icon. XD
cheloya: (PETSHOP >> don't lose sight)
omggggggjfdjhddaf the schadenfreude is so good. Good news~! He's dead~! The jerk of the court is dead! 8D The jerkiest jerk that ever lamed, the enemy of all of us who play games is dead~~~~! GOOD NEWS~~~~!

Also, oh my god, Sarah Monette has put up a poll in which I have a choice between steampunk elves and baseball elves. HOW DO I CHOOSE. (Well, that is easy: you choose the baseball elves, because it is the most akjdsfhj what the hell and you want to know what the fuck it is about. XD) The Sidhetown Tigers, it is called, apparently, which... awesome. :'D

Shin Petshop v3's being released on October 7, so I should be able to pick up that and the Phoenix Wright comic in a week or two. I am kind of amused that Amazon seems to have the volume description for PSOH v6, since Shin Petshop v3 involves exactly no Leon, but oh well. This is the volume where they come and kill D's birds, which will be... awful. It was awful when I couldn't understand what was happening. ;_;

(I think what annoys me most about this second series is that it's following the exact same format as the original as far as getting-to-know-you games go. I hope Akino-sensei doesn't plan to have it end exactly the same way. (Because seriously, there's no one left to shoot, there, guys. ;_; She took care of that nicely. I... I never thought I'd say it, but I want to see Sofu again, just so I know what's happening with Papa's reincarnation. *frets at him*)

Anyway. Here's to a day on which I do not technically have to do anything. But on which I will work on the Gambaro site and such, anyway, because I do want to get that over with as soon as possible. XD Mostly so I can move on to sparkling hopefully in Jim Frenkel's direction.

Onward! To showers! And hopefully my hands regaining feeling at some point. >_>;
cheloya: (PSOH >> you take the beating)
So, I haven't read it yet because I've been out all day.

But in the comic store, I discovered they had changed Vesca to Wescar.

I actually screamed.

[EDIT] Dear Tokyopop: I Hate You (Part 7 294 724 208 082)

There isn't much that is really truly epically bad in this volume, but there's enough to make me really, really angry. I mean - Wescar. I was never exactly hopeful about this volume, but I never dreamed that you could fuck up something like that. |D;

There were a few things at the beginning of Dignity that made me thrash-flail (like Dee's first really creepy line being fucked with) but the rest of the volume was... well, I didn't care so much about it, so I suppose I didn't notice so much. That said, there is... very little persuading me to take this series as the same level of canon as the original, because... D is really very open about everything. And maybe it's just because he's got Wu Fei in a bit of a tight spot, but... it's still kind of fishy to me. Leon at least denied everything; Wu Fei doesn't do that. It's very weird.

I'm pretty sure Dee's motivations were altered, but they did make enough sense to work with, so I'm willing to roll with it until I go back and retranslate my Japanese volume to double-check. There are also a few throw-away lines that I'm going to be double-checking, because Vesca freaking out over the bird-women having no eyes is just too adorable. His panic over being mass-molested by blind women is definitely translated properly, so that was greatly amusing all over again.

(Also, I am still fond of Wu Fei. :3 I need to double-check that part as well, but there was a bit where D asked about his marriage plans and he got all flustered and avoidant; it was adorable. Also, protecting the family~! Wu Fei is a good Bossu.)

Also, sob sob, Dee = fixing things. ;______; ILU Dee.

There's a 'then' instead of a 'than' in there, too, said by Dee, which makes me even more furious, because... Dee. Generally a pretty coherent and well-spoken guy, at least until you present him with a sunfish!

I did discover a line that I'd never seen before, though! "Count D, let me board your boat"! Presumably thought by Leon! Which was kind of akjdhsfadskj. ♥ And a line that I wanted confirmed as to its direction, which was that Dee says Vesca saved him after he fell off the boat, which is full of awwwwww. I didn't like what they did with Alberto's lines, though. :\ That was just kind of... they made him really stilted and weird. (Which he was, but they could have gotten it across much better. XD;)

And... yeah, this has still managed to bring back my love of Dee and Vesca and god dammit, fandom, explode already! You have terribly translated canon now! ACCEPT IT! WRITE ME FIC!
cheloya: (BLEACH >> grimmjow)
Just got up. Exhausted. Whyyyyyyy. What happened to the sleeping? The sleeping was good. It lasted like two whole days...

On the bright side, I did have a dream about being Papa D. That was kind of awesome. And by 'kind of awesome' I mean 'I was living with Count D and he was not deathly afraid of me so it was wildly AU and we wandered around the house together and it was FUCKING AWESOME YO.' I/He got a hug. It was kind of epic. As in, in the back of my head I could hear myself going OH MY GOD THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN AND YET YOU/WE ARE ACTING LIKE THIS IS NORMAL, THIS AU IS SO. COOL. :'D I have no idea where Sofu was and at this point I DON'T CARE because Leon was in the house and I/Papa wasn't trying to kill him and it was lame and AWESOME.

C-can we tell PSOH is sort of on my mind at this point? :3 I am waiting eagerly for my email. Even though it's definitely not in until Thursday, like Crisis Core. Eee hee hee hee hee hee hee. ♥ Although I'm actually having difficulty deciding which I should tackle first (PSOH is the logical answer, but hear me out) purely because I am going to spend a lot of time yelling at both of them. PSOH is guaranteed to be a shorter stab of pain, but I think I can safely say that for the last year or so I've been more into PSOH, so I will probably rant for comparatively longer. XD Although since I definitely won't be finishing Crisis Core inside a day, I suppose I'll be breaking it up into short, manageable chunks of impotent rage.

Anyway. Fandom talk having woken me up a little more, I'm going to shower and then go study in the living room or something. Somewhere I am far away from Hoshi no Yakata because otherwise I will download and read it all today and that would be bad.

For the record, Hoshi no Yakata is a gay BDSM manga, which I discovered through... hmm... fandom secrets, I think. There is a character who is the most smoking male I think I have ever seen and is essentially D only more muscular and in leather. Do not ask me why I find this attractive. Not my thing at all. But this character? Is the only character that I have ever stopped and gone WHOA HOT at based on image alone. XD So naturally I had to research the fandom! Find the series! It has taken me months, but I got it. 8DDD And since I started reading it I have actually begun to flail a little over the rest of the characters, too. Sumiya = ♥. Angry, sadistic ♥. :3

In any case, you can download it from Game Over or Continue? if you are interested. :D It's under Projects > Completed > Hoshi no Yakata.

[EDIT] *criiiiiiiies* Barbara-senseeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisjjhfakjfhsj

;_______; Sh-she allocated me to the Tuesday class.

So now I have one thing really early Monday morning....... and then nothing for the rest of the day. Wryyyyyyyyyyysa,mdfhadfasdjfsdfkasldf. T_T;;;; I knew I should have sent a specific request email.
