May be last update?

I will be moving my blog to wordpress for a while. I don't know if this is permanant, but it will be like this for a while. I don't think I'm ready to let go of my livejournal just yet.
I've already started setting my new blog up, and for people who have my blog in their feed, it will be much easier to follow me on wordpress (signing up for my updates are available). I'll most likely be talking about music and BL more often and less chapter reviews like I used to. Though I will continue to review every now and then.
Here is a link to my new blog: http://lilyjay.wordpress.com/
Please follow me if you'd like :).

A Rare BL Post

I just recently found the manga 拝啓、兄さん様. Haikei, Niisan-sama . Every now and then I will find a shounen-ai manga that will tickle me and keep me obsessed over it. This is my latest obsession and I'm glad I found it recently instead of finding it sooner and suffering with it's long waiting releases.
Sadly, knowing now that it seems to be endin soon depresses me entirely.
I looked up Tagura Tohru-sensei's website to get any news over this series and found this:

9月21日発売の「ルチル vol.50」にて「拝啓、兄さん様」の第7話を描かせていただきました。13Pと短いですが…。次回で最終回の予定です。よかったら読んでみてください~。

I drew chapter 7 of Dear, Brother (Haikei, Nii-san-sama) in Rutile Vol. 50 released on September 21. Short with 13 pages....The final is scheduled next. Please read it if you like.

Also, just so you know, this is considered the November issue.

For those who are curious about chapter 6 because it has yet to be scanlated, here are some news:
It has been released in this volume.

7月21日発売の「ルチル vol.49」にて「拝啓、兄さん様」の第6話を描かせていただきました。38P描いております。よかったら読んでみてください~。

I drew the 6th story of Dear, Brother in Rutile Vol. 49 released on July 21. I have drawn 38 pages. Please read it if you like.

Now we know that Dear, Brother is ending soon, I assume, on it's 8th chapter. Final is scheduled next. Basically, it ends next chapter I'm guessing.
(Please let me be just assuming and this is wrong *cries*!)
Chapter six has many pages. Chapter seven has very little. I may be wrong and the Rutile Vol.  49 has been scanlated somewhere.

If this manga ends this quickly when I just started it, I'm going to bawl like a baby (and then immediantly buy the volume when it's released at cdjapan).

Btw, I totally recommend this manga. I've read it twice now and will spend minutes staring a single panel, that is how much this manga attracts me.

Anyways, I will be scouting sensei's site for any more news.

In Today's News...

Lately, I have been really interested in the anime, Hyouka. Just today, I watched the most recent episode (episode 8) and completed reading the first volume of this light novel series (translation kindly provided by baka-tsuki). It was EXTREMELY enjoyable. I can't say this will apply to everyone though because I have a sweet tooth to the fluffy-like animes. I've always been a hard-core shounen fan and have never been interested in shoujo (except for the rare few), but there is something about slice of life and mystery that attracts me to them even if they are fluffy. Animes like Another, Kamisama no Memochou, Eureka Seven, Hanasaku Iroha, etc. Speaking of which, I really hope to hear of a new project by the anime creators of Ano Hana, Ano Natsu, and Tora Dora. After Ano Natsu ended, I've been curious on what sort of project that will have for us next. I hope we don't have to wait long!

In other news, Agni's Philosophy, the new demo by Square Enix has a walkthrough! Sort of a behind the scenes thing. In japanese with translator! Interesting.

Square Enix Showcase Agni's Philosophy: Final Fantasy Real-Time Tech Demo

Instead of focussing on existing Final Fantasy properties that they currently have in development, they've released a tech demo showing what a prospective Final Fantasy title could look like on next-generation consoles.
The video, which is just under four minutes long, has been dubbed Agni's Philosophy. It showcases a blend of modern technology like guns, but also fantasy elements - there's even a summon thrown in there for good measure. Character design was supervised by Tetsuya Nomura, with Yoshihisa Hashimoto directing the video. Could this be the start of Final Fantasy XV? Who knows.

2012年6月5日、E3にて発表されたリアルタイム技術映像作品「Agni's Philosophy -- FINAL FANTASY REALTIME TECH DEMO」の映像です。

After watching the video, you can fill out a survey for it https://form.square-enix.com/a.p/933/

English site for it http://www.agnisphilosophy.com/en/index.html
Japanese site for it http://www.agnisphilosophy.com/jp/index.html

For the those who are curious about the contents of the japanese page, it basically talks about the "brilliant future of advanced game playing."



Here is the organization of researchers and development: creator, artist, engineer, of the ideal (FF). Square Enix has left romance and the frontier spirit which tends to be lost in this day and age. I put soul into the work place to make it all possible (or something like that). We will create a "world-experience game that will give everyone goosebumps" with us. Please look forward to the future, Square Enix.

We look forward to our staff's development and for your application.

This demo had a lot of potential and the graphics were just BEAUTIFUL. I'm looking forward to it and I hope to see a game out of it in the future.

Sometimes assumptions are just TERRIBLE

I assumed that making a twitter would mean I would get on more. FAIL. Did not happen. I only reblog amazing posts from OTHER tumblrs. Oh, well.
I give up! I'll just do it how I do it.

AO HARU RIDE Chapter 18 Spoilers are here: http://bxsmanga.weebly.com/9/post/2012/06/aoharaido-18-translation.html
Many thanks to Minchi, Estella, and the extra hands.

I'm going to admit this straight out. I'm getting fed up with Kou. And also, who is the person on the phone!? This person knows Futaba. But is this a potential love rival? Why is Kou backing away again? And why is Futaba just taking it. Futaba, I know your characterization is more interesting than this! And Kou, where is guts!? My growing dislike of Kou and interest in Touma is moving to the doomed Touma x Futaba ship.

Onilink from BA has provided some information for the anime Another.
"btw I found out this info
According to the record of Another series original creator Ayatsuji Yukito, we can expect a spin-off titled Another ~episode S~ and a second season, which now known under the working title Another 2.
By record I mean Twitter"

We have already recieved the OVA, which is about Misaki and her twin. Which means we will stil have a SECOND SEASON! I can't exactly back up this info, however, will be looking around Another's site and follow them on twitter to confirm this (Onilink is trustfull though). Though I'm sure most fans know, there is also a LIVE ACTION film.

IMO, it looks pretty good >:3. The site for the movie is here: http://www.another-movie.com/

Tahno x Korra Fan Officially

I can’t stop shipping Tahno x Korra! Dang it! Screw Mako, I’m rooting for Tahno (why did he have to lose his bending!?).

Just saw the newest episode. Poor Korra T.T. Too much Mako and Asami. Borra seems like a sunken ship now.

Looks like Tahno has shot if he continues to stay in the anime. (Please please please).

Now time to go stalk the creators of Avatar and send them fanmails about my Tahno and Korra love <3.

Kuroshitsuji Chapter 69

Dang you, Maurice! To try that on Ciel-sama! You best show that pretty boy how it's done!

Mwahaha, I love how Ciel takes his challenge with an evil grin on his face. Kukuku.

I'm somehow in love with Gregory's frag though.

Grimmjow, Fanservice or Not?

Yet again, I find myself reading the hate on Grimmjow and how is return will only be “fanservice”. You know, I wouldn’t be so insulted if they weren’t being so troll like about is. “Oooh, ‘fanservice’ is bad and evil and ruins the story.” No, it’s simply just that. Service for the fans. You would think that they would be appreciative about it. Kubo giving us fans some smexy service now and then! But God help us, let lightning strike us when Kubo dares to give us a bit of service.

I remember Kubo specifically say that Grimmjow wasn’t at all what he expected. He was supposed to die early in the story. He never had a background planned, etc. Kubo never even drew a death scene. Grimmjow was just left lying on the ground. Kubo never said straight out, Grimmjow died. Is Grimmjow’s return “fanservice” when he never even had CLOSURE? Just wondering.

Again, whether his return will actually be considered fan service or not isn’t really what bothers me. It’s the fact that a bunch of whiny Bleach fans hate on him because he may return while the characters they loved died. Well, here is what I say, “Get over it.” Grimmjow is just that special.

Tumblr has been created!

I created a Tumblr the day before yesterday. I'm still not sure on how everything works. For those thinking that Tumblr will officially take me away from Livejournal. Well, too late. I've been away from Livejournal. But because I now have a tumblr account, I'll actually be on HERE more. Why? Because I'll be copy and pasting my entries from there to here and most likely DA, which I haven't gotten on in a while.


Today, the Bleach spoilers aren't that promising in my opinion. Just saying!
