It is finally not unbearably (Is that even a word?) hot.

I watched episode one of Durarara and it definately caught my attention.

Have to make phone calls to people to figure out appointments. I lead an exciting life

-Apparently the Touhou fandom thinks Reimu is 5'8", and that that is the average height for Japanese women. I looked it up, and the average height for Japanese women is 5'2, and men is 5'7. Reimu is taller than your average Japanese man? I don't think so.

Touhou fandom says a lot.. it's best to expect nothing to be set in stone at all with Touhou (though some things like tsundere!Alice are so common you might as well get used to it). Interesting to see that Washu's joined the Touhou-verse. xD
Asian men are short. At least the ones I know anyway. =/

Yeah XD I've decided to let the fandom do what they want~ I figured since most of it is male, they made them freakishly tall so it would be easier for them to cosplay~ (Although I did meet a male Alice and male Murasa cosplayers, lovely people~) I just go by the personalities that ZUN implies XD I also refuse to believe the height because I'm 5', and want to cosplay Komachi :1 Who they think is 6'6" lol...

I had known about it for a while, but am just starting to really get into :3 Mostly thanks to SWR~

I don't know I guess I'm tired and Hungry but don't want to get off my Laptop.
My cat Koda and how he's doing, Why the guy I like is going out with another girl(whom I really love her and she's a great friend but noone know I like him), What's going on in my brother's head and why he's acting like he is, Where is my lil sis right now and is she coming home soon, Why don't I get off of my butt and go eat something and take a nap.
There that's some of what's going through my head.

- So yeah, I brought my x-ray to a better doctor(pulmonary specialist?) because what the first one told me/us sounded fishy. There he told me I have tuberculosis. mellow.gif
- At least it's curable. I have two friends who had TB and they survived.
- And I learned how to read my own x-ray.
- will take medicine and pray that this gets cured ASAP.

Oh my goodness thats no good! I do hope it gets cured as soon as possible! Please be OK! *hugs tightly* i don't need to loose another friend--especially one as good as you.

CTs:
-My singing pogress: Hitori demo yuku--*COUGH* The doctor says its seasonal allergies and I might be like this for a month or two. There goes getting that cover done in time... and the talent show... and braces (can't cough while they're puttin em on and yes I want my braces. I have a good reason to, also)....
-I was 102 pounds now I'm 96 pounds. Jeez I am anorexic for my age! What the hell!?
-In attempt to gain more weight, I ate an entire pizza. I feel really overstuffed now...
-Sleep... its what I need...

You know, that's not very nice. I am realistic. And without any dreaming or pretending I really think that you will manage and get healed soon enough. That you will become healthy. I kinda don't even can imagine that that sickness will get you. I dunno. This is just what I know for sure and feelings like that always were true at the end. Something like the sixth or seventh sense or what ever people cal that biggrin.gif

- Now I have a family member suffering from cancer, the adverts for some cancer charities anger me. I'm not saying these places don't need funding, but emotionally blackmailing people into signing a years contract is wrong. I once asked if I could just give them 24 in one rather than 2 a month for a year, and I was told I couldn't.

- Job hunting. Not missed having to do this.

- Love my new haircut but it's taking a while to get used to a fringe in my eyes (what you in the U.S call "bangs" I believe)

-Had a fun day today. Myself, my sister and my brother-in-law went to town and met up with our mum. On the way back I was listening to the FMA:B OST 3 on my MP3 player and while we were crossing the bridge I laughed at the track that sounded like Psycho music and since my MP3 player has a loudspeaker function, I activated it and my sister and brother-in-law re-enacted the Psycho shower/stabbing scene. Thankfully we were the only ones crossing this bridge at the time. xD Only the twist was my brother-in-law was playing the woman in the shower and my sister was the psycho. ;P

-On aforementioned journey back I was told there was a wasp behind me and I screamed and hid behind my sister. There was no wasp but it was too funny. xD My reactions are always over the top when wasps and bees are involved.

-I've got sore throat coming on...that and the constant sneezing as well as the headache I mentioned in my previous post...it sounds like I'm getting a cold. Nooooo!

I drove today and I only freaked once! yay! *does a mini-mind-partay*

I had a funny convo where me and this one chick were 'rping' Greed and Envy. Needless to say, they got in a verbal fight (since we were chatting instead of actually rping), XD. Very funny stuffs thar. She kept posting pictars, which I eventually retaliated with my 'can't touch this' one, XD.

Now I'm kind of bored... whatevar.

I heard a crash, both the girls yelled, and when I got downstairs, the younger one (6 years old) had accidentally pulled a plant off a windowsill and onto the couch. I had to try and keep her from getting sick, she was in such horrible hysterics, and clean up the mess. Thankfully, her older sister helped me, but the little one was horrified that I had to tell her parents. We'll see how she reacts to me on Wednesday, when I see her next.

-Trying to download the original 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'. Stupid internet >.<
Razzy
Rosi- Ah, the site is working now. XD And translations aren't so bad- it just depends on who's publishing the manga. For example, Yotsuba&!'s translations were perfectly fine with ADV Manga, but once Yen Press got the license around volume 6, the translations just got SO BAD. (and ugly cover reprints to boot.) D:

@ Razzy - I like Yen Press, they don't replace the suffixes, but publishers like VIZ (Shounen Jump) and Del Rey are pretty bad o.e Del Rey doesn't translate the suffixes, but sometimes they replace conversations and such with something completely different from what they originally meant!
Ex - original/scanlation translation:
"...See? You can do it after all!"
"...But I hate studying..."

Del Rey:
"...You know, you could smile about it..."
"But this *is* my smile."

Rosicrucian Ah yes, I heard about OneManga- although I'm not too broken up about it, there are barely any manga that I find worth reading at the moment. oO

I personally like Viz, they're good on the whole, but their mistranslation of some words can be hilarious. Like in one of the FMA light novels I have, Lieutenant Havoc was misspelled/mistranslated as Lieutenant Haddock. xD I like that they don't use the suffixes, as I find that there's no need for them. Del Rey are okay too; they usually explain why some of the text is changed at the end and it's usually to make more sense to us westerners, which I don't mind because then I get it. wink.gif

@Rosi and Razzy- To me I really don't care about mistranslation. As long as it's in English, I don't care what they're saying. Yen Press translates a lot of good manga (I.e. Hidamari Sketch, Spice and Wolf, ect.) And Del Rey has an EXCELLENT Negima! translation, besides the occasional name typo, but I can live with that. As for OneManga, try looking at MangaFox and MangaReader. There are LOADS of manga scanlation sites lol.

Anyway, if you have particular scanlations done by particular scanlation groups, you may like to check the credit page of these scanaltions and jot down all their names and site addresses so that possibly you'll know how to contact them after these scanlations on OneManga disappears. ^^

As for OneManga, try looking at MangaFox and MangaReader. There are LOADS of manga scanlation sites lol.

@Little Washu - Scanlations on MangaFox are also disappearing, and so as on most of other major "free" manga reading sites. The larger ones had received letters from the coalition of manga publishers, while some other smaller ones are voluntarily closing shops.


As for OneManga, we knew this was coming, as the writing has been on the wall for months now. And, this whole latest development was happening as the start of our FMA manga re-reading project was approaching on our board, so the project team had to write plan A, plan B, plan C, even plan D contingency plans, and we had to adjust as the time progressed and the development unfolded. >.< (as some of you know part of it. ^^)

But anyway, yes, I saw that many of the regular readers of OneManga site were hit with the news yesterday, and I feel for their surprise.
I hope that some other alternative forms of digital manga reading that are currently in development will establish themselves well and can give us manga fans other viable alternative source of reading manga soon. (...get off the soap box before I fumble down on the box. XP)

Well...I don't exactly have the funds to buy all of the manga I would like to. I support the publishers when I can and buy volumes, but bills/rent/food comes first. And, had it not been for sites like OM I wouldn't have discovered many of the series that I currently read and have bought volumes of.

But all that said, it is still possible to get scanlations directly from the groups that release them, and it's not like every online reading site is going to remove their manga.

As for OneManga, try looking at MangaFox and MangaReader. There are LOADS of manga scanlation sites lol.

@Little Washu - Scanlations on MangaFox are also disappearing, and so as on most of other major "free" manga reading sites. The larger ones had received letters from the coalition of manga publishers, while some other smaller ones are voluntarily closing shops.

Ah, see I buy manga so I didn't know. I've always preferred physically holding and reading it as opposed to just reading it online. Also, paying for it. I'm in ur government, stimulatin' ur economy

Also, hope you get better soon Tombow~
