Bloodsport(s)

25 Apr

Now that I’m fully recovered from Coachella and a spectacular Prince concert last week, I’m back into my schedule of eating dinner while watching anime (that’s what you do when you don’t have a roommate/social life). I would have written about this anime right after Coachella, but I don’t think I could legitimately “review” Deadman Wonderland without watching at least 2 episodes, so here we are, after 2 episodes. A friend recommended the manga to me a mere 3 wks ago, and I read through all 43 chapters in about 3 days, basically because I had nothing else to read at the time. (I have this tendency to marathon a series) While it’s not memorable by its own merit, it draws many similarities to “Elfen Lied”, “Darker Than Black” and “X-Men”, all of the associations which are helping me to remember this story.

The first thing you’ll probably realize from the “Deadman Wonderland” anime is that almost all of the seiyuu’s (voice actors) from “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood” moved on over to provide their talents to DW. Well, if you didn’t figure that out you need to get your shit together and watch FMA:Brotherhood, then we’ll talk. But seriously, the production quality of DW is brilliant (thanks to HD quality Youtube also), Kazuma Kondou‘s original manga illustrations translate beautifully into the animation, and I can’t wait to see the Carnival Corpse battles.

So as I’m watching the first episode while simultaneously trying to Facebook-chat with my friend, also watching the first episode, we both realize that the anime expands upon each character a TAD bit more than how the story unfolds in the manga, as though the mangaka knew that the story would be adapted into an anime… I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily a bad thing as I would have no reason to watch the anime if the plot followed the exact tangent of the manga, but based on the first 2 episodes it would seem that this series is slated for a 2-season run.

As you probably see, I am trying very hard to spoil as little as possible about this series. I will merely leave you with the below hints I mentioned above….

1a) Elfen Lied= evolved humans using parts of their body to destroy other humans = Deadman Wonderland has this.
1b) Elfen Lied= half-nekkid girl character who has the intelligence of a 3-year-old = Deadman Wonderland has this.
2) Darker Than Black= characters who use blood to destroy other humans = Deadman Wonderland has this.
3) X-Men= evolved humans with powers that may be used for good or evil and are shunned by the rest of society = Deadman Wonderland has this.

”](There, I have spoiled very little for you.)

While DW doesn’t introduce any ground-breaking plotlines or characters, the manga was a relatively fun ride. But instead of waiting patiently for a new episode to release every week I think I’m going to catch up on Beelzebub and wait until the DW season is over to write up my summary.

Blood and Money! YEAH!

6 Apr

…funky title, I know. But I added some more items for sell and thought “Why don’t I just post it here.” …so after all my crap, please take a look at what my friends and I have for sell. We are very much poor and want to cosplay and go to a con. <3333 Thankyouuuu.

So about the blood part…I donated blood for the first time! Yeah! …I was scared to death though. o__o ..and picutre time! ❤

I felt really happy afterwards. (In my mind, that is….) I got all whoozy and what not at work and nice ol’ Julia was like “Oh take this and go buy some orange juice!” ..and then everyone gave me chocolate and what not. xD Through it all, it was a nice feeling to know I donated. (cornyness, I know ..>>) Some of the pre-qustions were pretty funny and I am glad Meaghan went with me…we kept laughing while we were taking it. For example:

1. Have you ever had sex with a person that lived or was born in Africa?

2. …Have you ever been to Africa?

3. Have you ever had a relationship with a gay person? (Throughout the questions, there were little clip arts beside them, and at this one there were like two males holding hands..or something…we just found this one amusing xD )

4. Did you ever eat at Papcitos on (enter someplace in Houston that I can not remeber) on this date? “Er…whyyyy? ” …at this point, Denton asked one of the nurses and she was like “Hypotitas A” ..yeah, that sucks.

….so overall, we had a fun time before the whole blood thing. xD But the nurses that took my blood were really nice and danced and sang to smooth r&b or whatever its called. xDD


…and now for the money party! YEAH!

(cross posting from my cosplay.com thread~~~)

I’m selling this for a friend who needs some extra cash for cosplay and con money, and we would rather try and sell the items here before we go to eBay. Any questions can be e-mailed to gakishoujo1@aol.com or you can just PM me. ^___^

Paypal is very much preferred. I will also take checks and money orders.
**Shipping will be $4USD and is not included in the prices shown. I can not ship outside of the US, either. x:**
