doggiedynasty: (120% Enthusiasm)
Well, as usual, a miserable week. I am getting extra frustrated with my niece, and it keeps me up late at night since that seems to be the only time I can get some peace and do what I wish. But I haven't been sleeping properly as it is lately. She says the darn-dest things that just melts the heart.

"No fighting, and no yelling."

"Baby needs a hug."

I want to quote as much as I can, but my memory can't maintain.

In the Watchlist World: Aldnoah ended, I haven't watched the Ronja final yet (I'm not in a rush) or the GARO animation final, Gundam Reconguista of G is over, and I finally watched Gundam The Origin.

I'll ramble about Gundam Reco another time, if that's possible. Not sure if I can even describe it. It is such a random show; I really can't believe how silly it was.

To quote another guy: "G Reco's barrier to entry is too much for me to recommend it to anyone. It'll be like telling people to run thru a doorway w/ unseen glass."Loved the comedy though.

Gundam The Origin suffers from a lack of animation budget, and there are shoes to fill after being spoiled by GUNDAM UNICORN, but I think ORIGIN is pretty good. Violence AND comedy. Fantastic.

[ GERMAN PLANE CRASH ]
I am not sure why anyone would allow a guy with not just only mental issues, but insignificant amount of flying hours, to fly a commercial airplane, especially with many passengers. I am sure that you need to be an officer.

It's a shame.

[ MOBILE GAME ]
Phone is giving me a little bit of sanity since I can't keep up with new console or console games, and life just sucks.

Peggle Blast gets harder or more unfair on the way up. I feel that it may end up like Candy Crush, and force me to slip it some pocket change just for a few extra turns. But I like achieving things through hard work, and that includes strong character and winning. and I'm paying through my data-loaded phone bill after all

I have no idea why I'm playing something as grueling as "Sonic & ALL STARS: Transformed" ON THE PHONE. I have to do easy mode ~_~ Why do I play racing games on the stupid phone? It's horrible! But yet, it's still fun from what I gather from it, and I may want it on console one day. Interesting themes (or mode) for the races, outside of battle and time trials, and the stages have different pathways. STILL, there are invisible walls, especially during flight mode and it's annoying.

Not to mention niece overlord wants to play it ^-^; Even though she has no idea what to do. She says, "can I have phone?" or "I wanna play car!" Is she becoming Petrolhead?
doggiedynasty: (WHAT?!/O-M-G)
Check my tag "Doggie watchlist" for more. Bold usually means its new.

Long time. Plenty of new stuff added, especially in completed shows. Trying to decide whether I want to add a "TV/Live" topic, or just add "Gotham" to Tokusatsu and change that topic to "Tokusatsu/Live"

However, I haven't been keeping up with Gotham. Gaiking is moved to "On Hold". heck, just look at everything.

I'm sort of disappointed so far.

doggiedynasty: (Sad)
Irritated due to constant cough and taking drops all the time. Can't seem to stop it even with nasal spray.

ANN: Kotono Mitsuishi leads Sailor Moon Crystal Cast

Annnnd there we go.

Not really an "ugly side" moment, but using the tag will make this entry easier to find for me. Maybe I should call it a "rant" because I am spilling my guts out with perhaps little to no logical backing or evidence. It is emotional and I'm all over the place.

Frankly, I am happy that something is finally revealed. Not that upset like a raging fire, I'm just ready to go start.

I'll get this part out of the way first: I think the designs are cute Rei <3 . Everyone complains about how the necks and legs are weird, and something else about details on the jewelry? It is unusual, or maybe I should say it's a break from the common pattern of "school anime" (?) that looks lazy (ironically, spiky hair is difficult to draw? At least to me I don't have a prayer). You can see a handsome main character from miles away. Even though, I somewhat see the visual connection to Pre-Cure, which is one part of the fandom's ire, since Pre-Cure artist is a part of this project. We'll see how it is in animation. It is FIRST visual only after all.

As for the voice actors...SM: Japan Idol. Not sure if I can explain this properly.
Note even kidding: I was a bit depressed.

I do like Itou Shizuka and Koshimizu Ami in general. There are complaints about using fresh VAs for the picks of course; I know that Ami and Shizuka are semi-new. Quite sure that some of the older warriors, I think Tomizama-Mars, Pluto, Fucami-Venus, and even K-sensei-Neptune for example, had maybe around ten years AT LEAST before their start. Furuya was definitely in the business long before that, racking up main characters.

As for my thoughts: I talked about this before, and I talked about complaints from senior VAs such as Mitsuishi herself.

I am sad for typical selfish reasons.

The original five VAs for the Sailor warriors are friends, and it looks to me that there are concerns from even Japan as to why Sailor Mercury is not Hisakawa Aya, considering her and Kotono's recent activity.

I think Mitsuishi aided with the choosing during audition???? [Nico Douga?]

There were various discussions among the English-speaking fandom: "Keep the original", "they can't do it", "they're going to all be new", "re-cast them", "since it's based on the manga, the characters are different". Even if different, it's a VAs duty to adapt and perform the character.

I had two simple thoughts: "They'll come back" or "the cast is change and the originals will end up being parents or important supporting roles".

The change doesn't surprise me in the slightest because it happens a lot. Especially in American cartoons it does. The TMNT are changed virtually each generation; in new Turtles, Rob Paulsen went from Raphael to Donatello amazingly. Also, Marvel and DC heroes: how many Spider-Mans, Wolverines and Supermans were there?

This all reminds me about the rough truth that VAs can be easily replaced, and that juniors rarely perform with their coveted/motivating seniors in active roles. The seniors who deeply touched many juniors and got them into wanting to do voice work.

This is something that even Mitsuishi has said, and I want to find that article. I'm sure it's in my blog somewhere. For this reason, I am happy that Kotono leads the cast. Plus, veterans don't get the main cast very often.

It's a little bothersome on how many youths (INTERNATIONALLY!) aspire to be VAs, as difficult as it is. CDs, net radio, concerts/live stage events, etc. Yet, I virtually see a similar cast each time-- say Kakihara (柿原 徹也), Seki-Tomo, Kimura Ryohei (木村 良平), Nakamura Yuchi (中村 悠一; WHY?!?!), Shimono (下野 紘), Toyonaga (豊永 利行), Miyamo Mamoru, Hanazawa, Kamiya Hiroshi in lead-- in virtually every show. Studio affiliation?

On the other hand, I do get a little annoyed when I see a show with an unfamiliar name take up majority of the cast. It gives you a good idea that VAing has become popular. I don't pick a work just due to cast. I'll have to like everything--cast, staff/production, what it's about--it all must come together.

There seems to be the influence of Pre-Cure for most of the new Sailor Moon picks, since there is the attachment with director, script writer and art designer. Kotono still remains strong in the Sailor Moon image something about Usagi DNA. Lol, did I read that right?. Similar to the main cast of Dragonball, which were mostly retained for many years for some blessed reason. Lupin was like that for a moment.

I told myself for some security that a new cast would be important because, since SM is so well-known, it will give them a chance to "follow their dream". The new VA of Mars explains that herself. While thinking this, I also remembered an article about the cast change for Saint Seiya (Interview by Yamauchi Shigeyasu). Furuya Toru (Seiya) was very close to the cast that he was with. Kuramada seemed troubled with the change?

I'm sad because there are very few times that even the veterans can enjoy this seiyu boom, as this business activity has increased considerably since 60s and 70s. Not necessarily for Sailor Moon, but for VAing entirety. Ogata Megumi (Uranus) seems to go up and down, balancing in between acting and singing, having landed roles in Danganronpa and Persona both animation and game series.

This argument might have to do with "pursuing the past" vs "pursuing current audience". Or is it versus "pursing money"? You're probably thinking that this is no different from 70s and 80s, with Akira Kamiya, Furukawa Toshio, Inoue Kazuhiko being at vanguard. In 90s, it's Hayashibara Megumi, Seki Tomokazu, Kusao Takeshi, and Mitsuishi Kotono. Just to name a few.

It is considerably different in terms of how things are relayed or achieved, and I am quite sure the amount of voice overs have increase.

Pointing back to the seiya interview:

声に以前のようなハリとツヤがなく、老けた声はもう「少年」とは呼べなくなっているものでした。

13年という時がここまで声の質を変えてしまうものなのか。
当然、ファンの方々から、

「旧声優の声が変わってしまっていやだ」

Basically:
* 13 years later: Degraded voice quality
* Fan complains about difference; performance is not heated enough (since the show is about boys)

I, quite frankly, thought Horikawa Ryo did great in Heaven's Overture. Why didn't Kurumada want a change?

Under the fans or otaku?'s new era pretenses and misunderstandings that whether the original sailor warriors ALIVE voice actors are active or not, it'll continue to be an anxiety because of the pattern of current VAs and the world of "idols". A generational anxiety? Their position in the current business -- how are things decided? What will be the outcome? Maybe I am just being a picky baby while its all inevitable. Sailor Moon is an important work that went deep in a heart. For Mitsuishi Kotono, I may see Sailor Moon and Misato (EVA); for others, they may see Murrue Ramus (gundam SEED). Mitsuishi is very entertaining and that hasn't changed.

It's pretty much like theater.

As for the Outer Seishi, after seeing some comments, I think it's utterly stupid for Ogata, Katsuki, and Minaguchi (Saturn) to return since the main cast changed. Pluto change may be inevitable as well as the VA retired.

It must be an attachment, similar to why we question "voice quality" (like Seiya above).

Still, I will watch it. I hope there isn't any slander towards Toei and the VA.

COMMENT: I'm tired of the Miyano Mamoru fanbratting, and this show have the nerve to use JAM Project when the combat/mecha combat is the most lackluster part of this show. The chaos stirred up between the characters, the politics of different sides, is a good feature. Especially Akechi, who is wonderful. Nobunaga is fun in being stubborn. Still, it's an average show. Akechi's the best. Also, Kazuki Yone does the promotional art!

Remember that video I showed about fans reacting to Kingdom Hearts 3? I was so impressed. In addition, the orchestral music of Shimomura Yoko makes it even more amazing.

The same can be said about the fans of Katsuki Masako (and Sailor Moon), who has been appearing live recently. She deeply affected fans with her personality and singing voice and pretty face? ooh la la.. I wish I could relay my thoughts to Japan.

MONSTER HUNTER Tri GAMING RAMBLE
I'm not sure how long it's been - three or four weeks? Now I understand why the MH series is at the popularity level that it is, and yet Tri's potential is considerably reduced. I almost notice the lack of monsters as I go through the different quests and Moga Woods. Despite that, it does live up to the series's name and it was a good introduction for me.

After a long time, a game that provokes my ambitious spirit. Monsters are exactly what they are: Monsters. And you're going to struggle! And when you fight, you can't suppress the adrenaline.

Some spoilers on what I've been through so far )

Windaria
Watched Fairy Tail War Windaria (童話めいた戦史ウインダリア) a couple weeks ago

I haven't had a good cry in a while. After watching the movie, I was sick. I needed a friggin' pillow.

The ending theme Utsukushii Hoshi (美しい星; beautiful star) was sung by the one and only Akino Arai. Before watching this movie, the theme didn't effect me so deeply. With her voice, she can easily move me, but the lyrics combined with the movie's events, the song has a different outlook. It's almost unbearable, heartrending, but nevertheless a beautiful song.

I thought, "what's with this song?" (watches movie and sees lyrics) "Oh Geezus...(;___;)"

Isn't it popular?

Kamen Rider W
hoshigaki

I picked Kisame because...well, due to NARUTO's international fame. Quite abruptly and to my surprise, Dan Tomoyuki has left this world.

To my disappointment...shortly after his death, and I'm talking like a week or two later, I finally meet his character. And I love a revenge story every now and then (Ryuu Terui is such a jerk). But now..

but now...

It's like my posthumous memory of this man will be a wacko doing clinical examinations to monsters. ^_^; And it's kind of erotic? #LOLWHUT Heh, I'm sure he enjoyed himself though. Can't wait to see W memory. Goodbye, Dan-san.

Gundam Build Fighters
I can't remember if I talked about this show or not, but I just can't believe me (LOL). Everybody complained about it before it aired. For a show about toys and tournaments, isn't it surprisingly ardent? And I feel like a total geek recognizing A LOT of the models. Mr. Ral is right - the person's passion isn't just from fighting with gunpla, but with building. It's all fun."

"NO COLLECTION, BOY! NO COLLECTION!" It became a fun show quickly.

MSGZIIpost

First thoughts of Z Gundam were in this entry.

Zeta Gundam (tv series) is finally over. Took me too long, maybe five months or more.

I'm kind of afraid to express my feelings now because I'm concerned about how I perceive things, such as details. One way or another, I'm reminded that I can't seem to pay attention or remember important things too well. For the latter, details seem to pass out of my mind, even when I'm told something a minute ago.

Is what I'm going to say even reliable or true?

Because it kind of upsets me that Zeta Gundam is given a ton of praise, like a masterpiece. Like on anime.biglobe.ne.jp/ (Japanese), MAHQ (english), and sakuindb.com. MAHQ calls Zeta the "best gundam series ever produced". In various other places, Zeta is considered a favorite among many fans.

Either I dislike anime (or starting to), or I just don't see it. Is the quality of the rest of the gundam shows quite low then?

Out of the gundam series that I have seen so far, I definitely give Zeta points for being dark. I don't want to call it "gritty" because I think that word describes Quentin Tarentino movies better, not gundam. If you want blood and gore, watch Gundam 0080, Gundam 00, or Gundam Seed series. They are especially gritty; Zeta Gundam is cruel, but not as much to give me tons of shock value. I only saw the first episode of Gundam SEED Destiny, and the scene where Shinn loses his family was particular gross and amazing. It would screw him up through the whole series.

Let's talk about the cruelty of Z gundam. Good stuff. Through the series, the TITANS' reputation do not lead towards a good light. They are seen as radicals and monopolize the jurisdiction of the Earth Federation. A similar force is the A-LAWS of Gundam 00 series. What the TITANS do and how they effect people surrounds the show. Including the main character Kamille, a spacenoid. Since he is one, his newtype senses develop early, at least to us watchers. For Amuro, it was much later back in 0079 (MSG).

Kamille's parents are killed. They worked for the TITANS, who realized that Kamille joined the AEUG. So the TITANS used Kamille's mom as a hostage, and Jerid ends up killing her by accident. A good scene if you ask me. Because of this, Emma disliked the methods and joined AEUG.

I think I complained about this in the first link above, but Zeta seemed to have problems with consistencies, with the delivery of both how characters react with situations and with others, and how they speak. For the latter, the subtitles might've not been that good. How the characters are drawn play a role as well; when it comes to facial expressions, I don't want to blame the 80s art. Not fair at all. All of this I said started becoming a problem for me in the early episodes.

For the art, when Kamille saw his father die, his crying face looked hideous. The death of his father was just plain dumb. The mother death scene was good though; Kamille saw both of them die. On to emotions,

Kamille's father stole a red Rick Dias (I think) from the AEUG and tried to take it back to the TITANS. Kamille chased him with the MK-II, but he stalled to kill him. The whole time he expressed how much he hated his father, but showed hesitation to kill his father. One might wonder if he's afraid to kill because he's a boy, or is it because it's Kamille's father. There was no evidence; Kamille, from the start, is shown to have a hair-trigger temper, and he likes payback.


Newtypes are a complex problem. When you're in the vacuum of space, it's like there is no boundaries when it comes to the sixth sense. Newtypes can effect even humans, and they can feel the hearts and minds of others in combat.

I guess to enjoy sci-fi, I have to be quite presumptuous and a thought provoker. Maybe I am not.

...What am I talking about?

doggiedynasty: (Ha-ha-ha)
Came home, slept, and woke up too early. I keep dreaming about groceries...

This is a rough topic: Racism and name-calling. This really isn't a "rant/my ugly side" kind of entry, but it's still something to wrinkle the nose at.

No difference at all. I don't see it.

>> One reason the leftist rats hate the military and police so much is because they can't (yet) use them to forcibly disarm the population and kill anyone who resists.

Anyways, finished Z Gundam TV series. Soooo, why do people hate Gundam AGE again?

EDIT: I forgot one fundamental thing that actually spurred me to do this entry.

The fact that people make these tweets and hashtag the words "not racist".

Um, how do you say "Hyuna"? "Hyou-nah"? According you YT comments, the people in the vid are saying her name wrong.



The first time I saw the video is was a parody, GUNDAM STYLE!. I think I nearly died when I was saw that elevator scene and the guy had the GM's face.

ME: "?!"

I felt a little crappy this week because my energy is being wasted on not being useful. Like I said before, I failed the job evaluation. While I did well, I had a weak point in being physical.

AND I'M BABYSITTING!

FFs on blogs
I wonder, for those who post their fanfiction and original stories on their LJ/DW blogs, do you receive a lot of attention? Not a suggestion, just wondering. And I'd like to read from the experience of others. For those who do it, do you aspire to become a professional writer?

Another seiyuu goodbye
In the voice acting world of Japan, another is lost to cancer: Honda Cheiko (本多 知恵子). A sudden shock I had, and I turn into a piece of sensitive goo reading messages from her fans. Also, the tweets from other voice overs such as Furukawa Toshio, Ogata Megumi, Itoh Kentarou (I think), and Okiayu Ryotaro, and Okano Kousuke.

I came across her profile plenty of times before, but I don't know where and when I first met her. It could've been Flame of Recca (who Okano Kousuke voices the main character in!). Maybe it is Sailor Moon or Yuyu Hakusho? I am quite familiar with her gundam characters; while I don't understand it, the characters Puru and Puru Two has a large following. I am also familiar with Ennil El of Gundam X

Here's a small video! "COME OUT!!! QUBELEY!"


Thank you Miss Honda.

I wanna show this again because I love it. Well Mr. Owl, last year I wasn't that nice on myself, or others even.

I did this for 2011, and just for the sake of blogging I want to reflect on last year. I'm having lag so I might not type much. Let's me get the morose stuff out the way.

[ Personal ]
I lost someone important, and while I attempt to endure it and pursue a forward-thinking life, I don't think I did my best. I found myself babysitting often too, which isn't that much of a problem.

More importantly, I've been harshly criticizing myself. Attacking my memory, and believing that I severely lack critical thinking (and being unable to debate), because apparently it's a crime to be inquisitive. And when I do get excited, I do tend to ask a lot of questions even if I should know the answer. Even if the answer is easy.

But knowledge is parallel to life experiences, so maybe I can blame lack of experience.

[ The World ]
Hurricane Sandy ravaged the Caribbean and even eastern U.S and part of Canada.

While many shootings happen across U.S.A, the theater attack in Aurora, Colorado, and the heartless massacre at Sandy Hook Elm. school in Newtown, CO. raised questions about what to do.

SOPA, last year Jan, caused Wikipedia to blackout in protest against anti-piracy. Also, sharing sites such as Megaupload was removed.

oh yeah...oppa gangnam style. Interesting.

Lance Armstrong...just lance Armstrong. sports history being wiped off the planet.

[ GAME WORLD! ]


- After years of wonder, in achieved the GOOKINGSWORD from Breath of Fire 3. Also, other items. Reliving the game was great.

- Many Successive in Monster Rancher 2

- In Mario kart Wii, I achieved golds in 50 - 150 cc, all courses. Mirror Mode was unlocked so i have a new challenge ahead for me.

[ TV/READING WORLD! ]
I continue with my Gundam Style! journey Video joke aside, Gundam AGE developed quite a bit in 2012, and I watched it until the ending. I also watched MS IGLOO 1 & 2, and I began the infamous Zeta Gundam.

Along with that, I finally lit my fire for Saint Seiya after thinking on it for many years. So now, I'm watching the classic series (half of it), Omega, reading and watching LostCanvas, and I'll watch Hades Sanctuary. There's a lot of comics such as Episode G and Next Dimension. I'm not sure on what to do.

I finished the tokusatsu series Kamen Rider Fourze and began Kamen Rider Wizard. Maybe I'll develop more love for tokusatsu and watch more Kamen Rider series and even Super Sentai fully. This year I believe is the new dinosaur Sentai.

Finished the wonderful Eureka Seven series.

Trying to read Pirate Latitudes, but I keep stopping.

BLEACH is just wow.

Finished the cyber formula series with the ovas (and its crappy subtitles).

We say goodbye to Aono Takeshi, W. Houston, Dick Clark, etc. I have entries on them under 2012.

may have more.

kamillZeta


I like consistency! And i like being shocked. thanks BLEACH.

So, I am halfway through the highly respected ZETA GUNDAM series, the sequel to the first Mobile Suit Gundam.

Well, considering how much it's talked about, I think I irritated myself on purpose while watching. There were definitely some times I thought that this show was given too much credit, or it's just too overrated. Or maybe I have a lack of comprehension (is sci-fi a weak point?), and that still annoys me to admit. Even while reading Gundam Sentinel, I had trouble picturing some events in my mind. Therefore for Zeta, I wasn't sure if my reasons or feelings were justified because maybe I'm just too inclined to not make sense of many things.

This has been proven, with consequences, too many times even with simple things.

I know, "keep to your opinions", but I want opinions to have some legit sense to them. Here they are:

It can't be just me. So, from others that I talked to, Zeta is called an "important series" and a "special series" (but maybe the latter is a hit on how "strange" the spacenoids are. Doesn't help that Kamille admitted being autistic). Like I said before, I wish to like everything about gundam. Popularity-wise, it's kinda like the Star Wars or Star Trek of Japan, maybe less.

While I know that gundam is more like an action-bases show, it bothers me when the romance is portrayed so shallow (and quick). Also, the dialogue and actions of some characters left me bewildered. It could be the SUBTITLES on its own because it's quite hard to pour energy into both watching action and reading words to fully comprehend a situation.

The character actions, from the romantic pairings to the choices that they make. Adding to that is the badly animated body language. Another minus. Things can change in seconds; that's the only way I can describe it, and I felt that there's little tangibleness.

As for romance, especially regarding the popular Kamille/Four pairing. Even they're not "normal" humans, is it supposed to happen (or become strong) in the manner that it did? There's also something else that I know about, which happens in the later episodes. I think I'll blame it on "Newtype influence" Jedi mind trick or "bad writing". I also want to know about Katz's hate-base.

My favorite pairing awards would still go to Seric/Natora (AGE) and Garrod/Tiffa (X).

Four is drawn rather seductively. Is that on purpose (lol)?

However, there is a rough touch to the Zeta story. Really rough; it starts rough, with Kamille readily showing his distaste for the TITANS and he doesn't take crap from NOBODY, and he joins AEUG because of that. The dictating TITANS are portrayed rather well as some really terrible creeps in the first five or so episodes.

I LOVE THE MUSIC! I can listen to the OP & EDs anytime. I was so happy to reach to watch ep 24 because the OP is sung by MORIGUICHI F'N HIROKO!. On NicoDouga, she's called the "Gundam nee-chan". Just a wonderful voice that I can hear almost anytime. But WTF, I'm shocked by how romantic the 2nd OP is (水の星へ愛をこめて; from the aquatic star with love).

"Don't cry anymore because there is a person looking for you, dying to see you."

Her song for SD Gundam G Generation SPIRITS (game for PS2)



Pretty.

This is for today.

Continuing 30 Days of Seiyuu meme.

Day 17: The series with the best cast overall

I have a few ideas: A LOT of the Shounen JUMP shows (ie: ONE PIECE, Dragonball, etc), Gundam series, POKEMON, Anpanman.

In Gundam, a more rookie or new name voice actor is often selected for the main character, familiar names or veterans are selected as supporting cast, especially those from previous shows. Sometimes, veterans are put along with the main cast as "important assistant characters".

Erm. if that makes sense. I'm thinking of Lockon and Setsuna (MikisShina and Miyano Mamoru), and then there's the Bernett brothers in G-UNIT (Tsukui Kyōsei & Yuuki Hiro. The latter being slightly a junior)

Down along the line of gundam content, many of the seyiuu are reused.

Namikawa Daisuke and Kamiya Hiroshi have been appearing in recent gundam shows plenty. Now, Kazuya Nakai has like three characters: Edgar, an original character for SD Gundam (forgot name), and Witz (from X). Tsujitani Koji has three or four characters?

Shounen JUMP shows? Lots of people participate. Especially in NARUTO and ONE PIECE. Wow. Just about anyone can appear. The same can be said for Pokemon and Anpanman. Just about anyone.
doggiedynasty: (Sad)
It's Saturday and I'm attempting an all-day watch marathon; also, Maplestory training? SO far so good, I finished GARO (1st season), and I watched the Gundam Unicorn #5 and HELLSING Ultimate #9.

GARO
GARO?

So, I have two "movie specials" (Byakuya and Kiba Gaiden) and Red Requiem (Full length movie) to watch before starting season 2 (Also 25 eps?). Goodness. SO much.

First season? Or my impression of GARO so far? I almost regret watching it sometimes ;) When eating. Like MS IGLOO, "GARO" shows the worse in people. Never seen anything like it, and so many ragdoll beatdowns too.

I have my questions but maybe I'll read about it later after finishing the series completely.

GUNDAM UNICORN

I'd really enjoy Unicorn a lot more if...

IF I could fully comprehend what's going on. When everything is put together nicely, it's a winner. Characters, combat, story, etc; Gundam is about mecha, politics, war, etc

Can I really become a good fan? Is this just a weakpoint of mine? Or maybe this animation is a mess and is getting too much credit. It's either that or I'm military fiction-retarded after all.

Gonna do seiyuu meme, and I have to update [livejournal.com profile] katsuki_masako.

Time for comedy.

doggiedynasty: Doggie's crescent moon (Default)
Keeping up a good pace on my memes; "Doggie Week" is tomorrow or Tuesday. I should make that a "tag".

I am tired.

For tonight, going to briefly talk about gundam. JUST LIKE the seiyuu meme, I found a "30 Days on Gundam" meme, but I don't think I can do it at the moment. Maybe next year? Maybe in 2013, when everything has settled down, and I end up wherever, I'll have watched plenty of gundam. Cause I just started Zeta. Day 1 and Day 2 I should be able to answer easily, but the rest...seems to be for veterans.

30 Days of Gundam Meme )

Also, I learned how to create a Lj-spoiler! I am quite slow...

Now I don't have to use the "highlight to read" technique.

MS IGLOO Recollection
There are two parts of MS IGLOO, and a 3-episode sequel "Gravity Front". I have no idea what IGLOO could possibly mean. There doesn't seem to be a single hint. When I first heard about it, I thought maybe it was a mobile armor. In MOST cases, the title of a gundam work is named after a machine, a group, or a year. Like there's G (God) Gundam, there's W (Wing) Gundam, Gundam AGE, F91, Z (Zeta) Gundam, ZZ (double Zeta), etc. 08th MS Team is based on what is says: The 08th Mobile Suit unit commanded by Shiro Amada. SEED...there's only SEED mode.

The first two parts are called "Hidden One Year War" and Apocalypse 0079", both centering around the actions of an engineering squad of Zeon whose number and full designation I can barely remember. Olivier May is in charge of evaluating the machines and reporting about there at the end of the each ep. Turns out, as the One Year War progresses, these machines are conveyed as "obsolete" or "not that useful". In the first ep, the Jomangund anti-ship cannon, but is it out shined by the mobile suit Zaku forces.

Ogg (I think) is the Zeon Rival to the Federation's Ball, but were piloted by a ton of rookies. Not that regrettable. They also designed a Mobile Diver, a machine to perform atmospheric re-try to shoot down missiles.

If I know one thing, if you're a pilot to one of these machines, you're going to die. There's a death in a single episode. Heck, death really really revolves around this entire series, especially MS IGLOO 2. But hey, it's gundam. It's war, and you totally got to die in this franchise.

For MS IGLOO 2, we are taken to the Federation's point of view. Very reminiscent of a war movie, especially with the CGI. Ben Barberry looks like a familiar actor, or someone you'd usually see acting as a main role in a war film? Anyways, I found MS IGLOO 2 a little...scary. Each main character was touched by a Death God (impersonate as a beautiful female floating around), and each one just had a terrible trauma. And they really...lose their sanity.


Actually, I think Ben (first ep main character) was very unlucky. The last two are insane because they carried a grudge. It's just awful to watch.


Zeta Gundam
Starts off rough. Kamille Bidan (Nobuo Tobita!) is the main character, and he shows newtype potential quite early in the show, but he seems to be from Earth? Kamille hates the TITANS for some reasos. Oh yeah, he is quite a rebellious jerk. Still, it's strange for him to jump out a jeep and to leave home to join AEUG. Or maybe I am not understanding something?


The TITANS are not-so-nice people. In Gundam 00, there are the A-LAWS; an autonomous force, the TITANS committed themselves to oppressing/destroying the Zeon movement, utilizing radical means to do so such as attacking a colony with poison gas. TITANS work for the Federation though; Kamille's parents seem to work for the TITANS, and Kamille criticized his dad about a mistress he's been working with.


The show doesn't start off happy at all like I said. Kamille's attitude and the TITANS's cruel way of getting their way makes the start interesting. OK
doggiedynasty: (Sad)
Wada or Kada?


August is almost over.

This is Wada (Hua Tao) of Koihime Musou, voiced by Hiyama Nobuyuki (see tag). He'll say stuff along the lines of "BECOME BETTEEEEEEER!"

The sign on the desk (my memory is FAILING!) says "medical king" (医者王; ishaoh), a reference to Yuushaoh Gaogaigar (A show that Hiyama voices in). Like Wakamoto Norio and various others, Hiyama's characters are inclined to becoming video memes.

Because of the recent NARUTO (comic) hype, I'm nearly exhausted.

I'mm surprised that it's Wednesday; my desire was to wake up at 6a but I ended up waking up near 9. Wanted to get some typing in, some calls, some writing, because my week has been me being mostly selfish and worried.

Ehh...I'm kind of OK with unemployment, which gives me the focus to do other things. It gives me time to regulate myself and reflect; at the same time, I can get discouraged and my mind conjures up these feelings that say, "I don't want to work". Only because I was getting frustrated.

But I'm quite too young to retire.

RNC
I already talked about this on Plurk, surprised that the result didn't leave my neck ripped out. Because Democrats are the enemy right? Or low informed? Least that's what I'm told to be: Democratic.

In the dictionary, "liberal" is not a government term but is defined in one part as "broad-minded".

Anyways, I had the intention to watch the entire 2nd day (from postponed 1st day) of the Republican National Convention. I took a nap, my mistake, but woke up; listened to some of the convention on the radio.

Anyways, I've decided, since HISTORY IS FUN, I'm going to post info on the U.S Constitution, primarily its amendments (Bill of Rights being first). Since they love to talk about that, and it's going to be a refresh.

Bashing + RP retirement
So, I gave up on a couple of blog RPG games (if I can call them that), explaining that my lack of focus and interactivity in the game occurrences are a burden. I'm not that good in creating topics either.

I hate giving up, but it looks like I just don't have the same influence as other players who can easily gather pals around to play and create scenes. I don't have the same closeness with any person. Plus, maybe my choice also had to do with not only the game genre choice, but trying to completely follow what was important in the game. It felt like a weak point. It's becoming more and more apparent to me. I can turn around, and I'm behind.

Most interactive "impact" that I have is on [livejournal.com profile] srwug_alpha_rp, where I play Bernard Wiseman from War in Pocket.

So, what did I mean by "selfish" at the beginning of this entry?

How should I say this? I don't want to leave Michigan. And I wanted my mother to stay home. She's originally not from America and wants to return to her old home, but I would have to go with her.

I feel like I'm a big loser because I can't find a good place for myself. I wouldn't be able to financially support anything. Again, I need to keep up with the "Doggie is Doggie" mentality and accept it. It's not like life goes the way we want to. I just hate the fact that I feel less mature than usual.

Also, to lose the "family house" (that's what I call it) means to put away all the memories that came from it. And, I can't say that I am the best in long-distance driving. I'm royally screwed if I move out of country. I don't like being in a place where I have no idea where I am.

Also, my dog has to go with another owner. Someone nice is going to take her.

I'm losing precious things.

Others
Trying to convince K-sensei (Katsuki Masako) to play Mario Kart 7, but I can't get the sentence correct.

So I need to post down two days of this seiyuu meme.

Also, I finished the MS IGLOO series, both 1 and 2. Part 2? The Gravity Front (重力戦線)? I need flowers, teddy bears, and puppies. I keep watching negative stuff. So I'll talk about GUNDAM another day, both IGLOO and Zeta (like 0079).

And it's still not explained as to what IGLOO MIGHT possibly mean.

Also, KR Fourze ends THIS weekend, and Kamen Rider Wizard (Sept 2) will air next week. I am not ready; was crying from the LAST episode!

Why do I watch negative stuff?!

Contiuning 30 Days of Seiyuu meme

Day 03:Your favourite female seiyuu

ksensei


It's-a-me! K-sensei! Katsuki Masako (勝生真沙子)!. There is also Romi Paku and Ikue Otani!. Romi Paku loves dogs!

My female favorites are less compared to the males, but I still have trouble picking favorites. Like I said before, in animated shows, the youths prevail. So, that means I am often exposed to these high-pitched or maybe husky-voiced girls.

When you're popular, you get more chances to get onto these shows, AND more chances to be flexible and take up different roles. That's what it looks like to me anyway; I don't watch a lot of the recent stuff. However, when you become a veteran voice actor, your pay grade goes up.

Maybe I'm just selfish and want to see the old generation continue to entertain us like they did during their prime, and not feel left behind. Somehow, being veterans, Seki Tomokazu and Midorikawa Hikaru still receive notable roles.

I DIGRESS! SORRY! I COMPLAINED!

So...Katsuki-sensei. I pick her as a favorite because she underrated and I wanted to know more about her. So, I became more dedicated to her career. LOTS of people like Romi Paku (because Good grief, the Hitsugaya Toshiro and Edward Elric fans) and Takeuchi Junko, but couldn't find the same fervor with Katsuki Masako.

Everybody likes Nana Mizuki, Sawashiro Miyuki, Hirano Aya, Toyosaki Aki, Hayashibara Megumi (so do I), Tamura Yukari, Hanazawa Kana, Saiga Mitsuki (so do I), Noto Mamiko (so do I), etc.

K has a bit of everything. MORE INFO HERE. Got the huskiness, got the sexiness and cuteness, got the calmness, the passion. Actually, it was her passion that got me attracted to her in the first place. She fits a strong character quite well, and even the opposite. Her father was in the Self-Defense Force? Is it related? (lol)

And the actual person? Quite a klutz, and also shy; can have a lack of self-confidence as well. Also, a gamer. My tag for Katsuki has the most entries so anyone can click on that and see what I posted about her.

As for Otani Ikue. She often plays the little kids and animals (or the grannies), and it's just so..damned adorable. She also appeared in Animania 2011 in Sydney. Here's a VOICE SAMPLE: enter Otani LINE!

One more thing, if you like a scary Inoue Kikuko, go watch IGLOO 2.

Gundam Seed Destiny Battle Assault. Katsuki voices Rondo Sahaku Mina. Err, the name is probably wrong. Not sure if Mina will appear again, but her brother does (voiced by Tobita Nobuo).


Sailor Neptune. OMG, I just love..the violin music. Just fires me up.
