Meaningless Rambling Post: Blog Under Construction


Because I want to use (another) different look for this blog, since the graphics that I used previously seemed too pastel for my taste. But it's hard to find something that A) looks feminine-ish without being kitschy or having shoes/shopping bags/some Cosmopolitan-esque cartoon woman on it, B) doesn't have something else completely unrelated, like jungle plants or a cat riding in a sailboat, and C) doesn't look emo. (Like the Sylvia Plath template.)

Plus, now for Japanese language class, I'm keeping a blog in terrible Japanese- with posts like "What I Did During Fall Break" and whatever else I want to write about for my classmates to see. I won't link to it here because...yeah... ^^; but it's out there somewhere, floating around the vast expanse of the internet for some poor Japanese-speaking soul to stumble upon it.

Oh, and I love these little CANAAN chibis I found. ^^ *squeals* So cute!!


The same pixiv artist also has super-cute chibi art of characters from several other series, like Saki (too many characters to post here ;_;),




K-ON!,



Hidamari Sketch,  



To Aru Majutsu no Index/To Aru Kagaku no Railgun,



and Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.


Even Higurashi.



(Not yuri at all, but chibi Rena with a cleaver = win.)

English-language instructions for joining pixiv, btw, are here.

Love Alphard's pose. Completely OOC of her but amusing none-the-less.

@ P.S., Nakayo, and Snark- Haha, I'm glad you guys like the pics! ^^ And you can have Maria, Nakayo, but Alphard is mine!! *shameless fangirl* Anybody else up for claiming a chibi?

I'd love to if you were willing to share Alphard. :P

@ 2nd Anon- Hmmm... -_-; *Liang Qi-like reaction begins to manifest* Hmmm... *suppresses it* Okay, since you asked nicely. ;-) lol

is it true that there is a anime of girl friends manga in feb 2010?

Katherine said...

@ Anon- There has been a rumor like that floating around (and some dubious-looking GF anime screencaps), but I'm not putting any stock in it unless I see confirmation from an official source.

Ahh, the raw for chapter 26 still hasn't been uploaded yet. I'm dying for it, since I've seen the spoiler!

I sincerely hope it won't take up to weeks to be uploaded. The previous chapters took less than a week to be scanned as I remember. Hmmm, I'm grateful to those who upload and scan the manga but I can't wait any longer lol :(

Katherine said...

@ Anon (both Anons, unless you're the same poster)- I'm looking forward to the next chapter of GF also, but I'm sure it will be out (and likely translated) within the next week- a miniscule amount of time to wait for a manga chapter, imo.

This is going off the topic, but I've got a really random question about the August issue of Newtype. I know there is a GirlXGirl article in the issue but I'm just wondering if you know how many pages the article is?

Thanks, do let me know :D if you know :D

Katherine said...

@ Guest- No problem. ^^ It's a 6 page article.
