I can't believe I forgot my mom's birthday.

Well, I didn't forget it; I knew it was coming up and the date, but I've been losing track of days, and didn't realize it was already today.

Still sick. All sorts of interesting things to cough up.

I know exactly how that is. That happened to me during my dad's brithday this year too. x_x


I locked myself out of my room on wednesday. It was the second time it happened. Go me.

Did the subs for Zetsubou Sensei episodes 10-12 come out? I could only find the episodes raw.

Bandai dubbed Stand Alone Complex. (one of the movies was Manga Entertainment tho) Production I.G. is the company that produces all the GitS movies and series in Japan.

I think Production I.G. was good, Bandai is okay(Manga Entertainment is pretty good also). But Ghost in the Shell has always been good in my opinion. I recall ADV getting lots of anime too. I just hope someone good does it ^^.

..........uhm, production I.G. is the company that MAKES GitS in the first place. O-o (well produces but still) They're not a dubbing company.

Hay.

I like[d] Geneon. D:<

It was because of them that Higurashi got brought to the states, though I can't get the DVDs as the Best Buy here has every other anime on the planet EXCEPT Higurashi.

Bah.

Geneon was good. They had X, Cardcaptor Sakura and Kyo Kara Maoh!, three of my most favorite series. ;o;
I just wished they'd put extras on the Higurashi dvds. At least a textless opening or something. And they weren't so dang expensive. <.<

Bah.

Their Rozen Maiden dub sucked.

The only really good voice was Suigintou's (ironically the voice everyone was worried about). Everyone else was either 'meh' or awful. The dialogue for it from what I've seen has several flaws too. They're too quick to use 'bastard' (seriously, chibi ningen should not be troublesome little bastard. I like to cuss too, but there's really no need to include the word in the dub when runt is sufficient especially when the dolls were supposed to be the perfect little girl) and for god sakes they left in 'Jun-kun'. JAPANESE HONORIFICS HAVE NO PLACE IN DUBS.

Seriously. Shinku's VA tries to hard, Sui's is just.......ear splitting, and GOD, I am so sick of that girl who does Jun's vocie! Can't she use a different voice for once instead of that same one AGAIN AND AGAIN.

AND THEY CUT OUT DESU.

YOU DON'T CUT OUT DESU.


Hilarious video about the dub.
Tris the Reaper
...I would like to think people would like that honorifics and other such Japanese terminology be kept in translation. o_O

This is the first time I've heard someone disapproving of it. [And I find it ironic...I've heard Suiseiseiki's Japanese voice and it absolutely murders my ears. I've nearly stopped watching 'cause of it.]

Though honestly, their other dubs are quite good. Samurai Champloo and Paranoia Agent are top-notch, and I like what I've heard of Higurashi. Rena sounded exactly like her Japanese counterpart, Rika, Keiichi, and Satoko's were good, and Mion's was absolutely perfect. The only complaint I had was on Ooishi's voice, but he's just a side-character, so I'm not too worried about that.

But then again, I'm a bit biased as I perfer dubs over subs and am an advocate of "turn on the subtitles if you don't like it" message.

This is the first time I've heard someone disapproving of it. [And I find it ironic...I've heard Suiseiseiki's Japanese voice and it absolutely murders my ears. I've stopped watching 'cause of it.]

No. Because the dub is supposed to be English so why include something that's part of Japanese language in an English dub? (the only exception to this I would want to see is Suiseiseki using desu. There's nothing you can really translate that too unlike kashira or na no and it's such a huge part of her character you just can't cut it out. It's a well known anime meme now so you could kinda get away with leaving it)

I'm not the only one to feel that way either. I've shared this opinion with other people. For the most part, the only people who want them to stay are weeabos who think Japanese is so super special awesome.

Suiseiseki's Japanese voice can get a little annoying, but I've found that English just awful. =/ I dunno, the Japanese one I didn't have much problem with, but that English one was just too much.

Honorifics have their place. In Azumanga calling Chiyo "Chiyo-chan" was fine even though they then replaced "-san" with "Miss" or "Mr." Itsuited her name and sounded very normal.
Generally though, if I'm watching a dub I don't want to hear Light-kun and Misa-chan, it sounds awkward and unnatural. Leaving "moe" in the Haruhi dub sounded weird as hell as well.

Yeah me and my friend were just talking about that. It makes sense in Japanese settings. But in the case of Rozen, they only left in Jun-kun but not Shinku-chan, or Hina-chan, etc. That's what REALLY bothered me. You can't just pick and choose which ones you leave and which ones you don't. I mean, you can leave -chan and turn -san to Mr/Mrs/Miss that fines, but leaving -kun and not -chan...that just bothered me to no end.

The dialogue just seemed like a total mess in that dub.

Ahh, the Rozen dub. Wasn't too bad to me.
I agree that it was stupid to leave Jun-kun in but leave out the desus and all the other honorifics.

But Suiseiseki's dubbed voice irritated me. Dx

I started my painting. Man, I suck at painting. How do artists get such fine lines on their canvas? Mine all are so thick and crappy XP I used acrylic black... I dunno if that is stupid or not, but I was in a rush and I couldn't find some good oils. To get finer lines, should I use a small stiff brush or what >_< Gah... oh well, this is my first painting like ever.

Also, does anyone know if Michael's or any other stores sell realistic fake fruit? Hollow plastic or foam to that effect preferably so I can stab through them... I am looking for Strawberries.

Slash, if you're trying to make black outlines on a traditional painting, you're doing it wrong.

What is it that you're painting? Maybe I could help you out. I myself am going to be breaking out the canvases this week in hopes of selling a few pieces at the store. (But darn it all, I can't imagine parting with one of my works like that... they're like children!)

I am outlining trees that I lightly sketched in pencil. Is that even proper painting etiquette? Regardless, I can't just randomly paint without effing up a lot, so it is necessary. Yeah, I'm a total nOOb when it comes to painting, so some pointers would help for when I get a second canvas. Perhaps if I am determined enough, I'll redo my current idear because I kind of like the concept.

Okay, so miss "IM ENGAGED AT THIRTEEN AND ITS GONNA LAST FOREVARRRRRRRRRRRRRR" has broken up with the guy.

But she's left him for a complete and utter freak that basically borderline tried to rape her once. [i.e. - slammed her up against the wall and told her he loved her and freaking her the crap out, later saying he was joking and mental].

Toby-Chan
Everyone does pencil lines on the canvas. (I think...? Unless they're the type who are fond of freeballing it or going at it Jackson Pollock style) But I'm not quite sure what you're trying to accomplish by making black outlines. There are some styles that are fine for using solid outlines, but they're mostly cartoons, and then, if you were using traditional painting methods, you'd wait until all the othe layers are done before adding outlines. If you're going for realism (or maybe impressionist, which is basically realism with your eyes squinted until everything is all grouped up in fuzzy chunks of light.) then you need outlines only to block out shapes and then to cut out areas of basic value within the shape (which are less complex on a tree than, say, a human face.) But since there are no lines around objects in reality, then you generally don't paint them. For a tree, I'd say first block out the most basic areas of light and dark (as if it were a paint by numbers piece) and paint those solid colors in for reference. After that, add layers of all the little light and detail changes. It's a practice thing, really, though, and there is a lot to be said about personal preference.
Heck, I've painted with acrylics since I was 8 or 9 and I still have tons to learn fro myself. (Most of it involves just getting up and painting, which I've been hesitant to do lately.)


On another note, I channel surfed to Death Note last night and I thought the dub was awesome. What are people griping about? (I saw a preview for it a few months ago and thought it was freaking awful, but it looks like they toned down the melodrama.)

'CAUSE THA' JAPANESE CAN DO NO WRONG!!!111!11! ZOMG KAWAII DESU DESU DESU SUGOI!!!

See, that's the problem with releasing snippets of stuff like dubs in advance, people are too quick to judge on just a minute or so of footage. Though, I think maybe it did Viz some good; perhaps they payed attention to some fantard backlash and opinions and toned the voices down [though all I initially heard in that trailer was Light]. I mean, Light sounds exactly like a teenage boy. How many voices for teen characters do you hear that actually sound like their age? No matter how well a dub is, that's always been an issue.[/rant]
Popogeejo
The DN dub is great. Matsuda sounds a bit to young, Chief a it flat, Light not quite polite enough and they use "Shinigami" instead of "Death God" but those really aren't that much of a problem and L's voice makes me feel very strange in a good way. The rest work perfectly well despite what I said before and Ruyuk (Ryuku? I can't remember any more...) is just great.

She seems to fail to realize that this means she'll be on an episode of Cops, hanging out a trailer window going "ARREST HIM! ARREST HIM! I LOVE YOU BABEH EVEN THOUGH YOU BEAT MAH HEAD IN AND GAVE ME MENTAL DISORDERS!!!!"

I like the Death Note dub. Of course, I've never heard the sub before, but now that I've seen the dub I doubt I'd like the sub. Ryuk is the best ^^. Though, I expected a higher-pitched voice for L. *can't wait for Matt, Mello and Near*

From what I've seen so far, I think that in the English dub, the voices are pretty good, but Light's evil laugh sounds kinda... not good. But I don't think I should judge so quickly, seeing as how I've only heard his evil laugh(and it was kind of brief) in episode 2. But he sounded like a cat with a bad cough, nonetheless. .__.

Today I met an itty bitty farm cat named Cinnamon. She's the only surviving member of her litter, and her mom took off last week, apparently. But oddly, her dad is a total sweetheart. He doesn't act like a farm cat at all. (Maybe he's just hungry and sucking up for food by being all friendly to humans. I dunno, but my cousin said that he catches mice and brings them to Cinnamon. That's pretty rare for father cats.)

Both of them are pretty famished, though. Especially Cinnamon; even though she's fluffy, I can feel her bones when I hold her. (And her fur gets all nappy since she hasn't gotten the hang of grooming herself quite yet.) She fell asleep under my jacket for a while. Wish I could take her home. Will share pictures.

Uh, it was an interesting day today. In the same two periods, in the same class, 3 iPods, 2 mobiles and a uniform went missing.
Unfortunately the whole class was held suspect ie. my class was called out during science and we all had our bags, pockets and lockers emptied and checked. D=
Nothing suspicious was found but I think that has more to do with the amount of loopholes the vice principal's plan had than our class' honesty.
Various other possible suspects were also discussed and the fingers all somehow pointed towards Year 10.
