Off to Japan~

June 18, 2008

Ok, so as some people may know, starting tomorrow, I’m going to be in Japan for a month! It’s going to be a great trip and I’m definitely going to buy a lot of stuff. xD Anyway, I’m going with a school program, and I can’t bring my laptop, so my internet time will be limited. I doubt I’ll update this within the month, but I’ll definitely have lots of stuff for when I get back!
Ja ne~

It’s from the 10.5 databook! Dammit, why does it have to be from the only .5 I don’t own?? I already have the 20.5 and 40.5 databooks, plus the 30.5 artbook, but I thought 10.5 wouldn’t be worth getting cause I already have the data from the other books! This has obviously changed my mind, and I’m totally grabbing 10.5 when I’m in Japan soon!
(on a side note, look at his hand, isn’t that totally Atobe’s Insight? xD)

I have to say though, this TOTALLY got my hopes up for a sequel or a new series…I scrolled down my friends page on livejournal kinda quickly so when I saw that I was like “WTF NEW REgULAR??” But then it turned out to only be Inui with no glasses…though that’s still pretty kick-ass.

I still think he looks better on the cover of his single DISTANCE. Not quite megane-less, but at least you can see his eyes through the glasses, unlike 99% of the time when they’re creepily opaque and glinting.

I wonder if I should make a separate Prince of Tennis blog for stuff like this…

Resonant Blue Podcast #1!

June 5, 2008

Wheee, I finally made my first podcast today! I was so fucking nervous though. In the first two talk segments, I kept screwing up and having to start over. Actually, the second talk segment is actually made of like 6 pieces of audio, cause I’d get pretty far and then screw up, but instead of starting over I’d just find a good place to cut the last one off, and then start from there. I don’t think it sounds that good…
By the time I got to the Miyabi part, the fourth (I think?) talk segment, since I didn’t know what I was going to say until I actually started talking, I just ignored any mistakes and just kept going! I think that worked out way better. BUT, near the very end, I accidentally moved my mic so I did have to rerecord the end since you couldn’t hear me in the original. >_>;;; It happened in the middle of a sentence too!
At the end, I said it was a short test podcast, but it ended up being like 40 minutes. So maybe it’s actually a good length podcast? xD

I find it interesting that I feel like it’s easier to rant about Prince of Tennis than it is to talk about Morning Musume and other j-pop. Maybe it’s because nobody else reads Prince of Tennis, so if I make a mistake nobody will jump down my throat for it? But if I make mistakes about Momusu, people who listen will notice…

Anyway, here it is:
Resonant Blue Podcast #1

Oh, and about wotachat…I really don’t know what I was saying there. xD But I meant it about everyone going there! It’s on IRC, connect to the Rizon server, and join #wotachat.

Here’s the music list:
Morning Musume – Resonant Blue
Ikemen Samurai – Dear Prince ~Tennis no Oujisamatachi e~
Kirihara Akaya (Morikubo Shoutarou) – Akaku Someru Tsuki
Buono! – Kiss!Kiss!Kiss!

Edit: Almost forgot. This was the Prince of Tennis manga page I was talking about, where Momo sings LOVE Machine. It’s the scanlation though, not the Viz English translation.

Catching up on PoT music news

June 3, 2008

(aka, another way to procrastinate studying for my Biology exam tomorrow? Maybe.)

So, uh, due to exams and other crap, I’ve fallen behind on PoT music announcements. Today I noticed that in addition to those, I missed two announcements made on May 19th! >_< And then I realized that any more announcements would bump those off the news page, and since there is no archive, I should probably do those before I lose the chance. o_o
