So I’ve been into anime and manga for a long long time. I cosplay, and my mom through the years has taught me sewing and crafting skills, which she calls “a lost art.” Anyways, long story short, she knows a little bit about the world of otaku.
(I swear I’m getting to the point and that this story is hilarious)
So my brother had never seen Attack on Titan, and while I’ve read the manga I had never seen the anime either, so we decided to sit down and watch some episodes together.
Well about half way through episode one my mom decided to join us, and hilarity ensued.
Here are some actual comments my mom (and family) made while watching the first half of season 1 during our marathon.
Mom: So why do they eat people?
Me: They just do. They’re giants and they eat people. That's all you need to know right now.
Mom: So those things on their hips..?
Me: Propel them using compressed gas or something. I don’t know any of the fantasy technical stuff.
Mom: Is there a place I can find out?
(one of the info screens can up conveniently explaining some stuff)
My Bro: That sounds like it’d be painful…
(My dad walks into the room)
Dad: Is this your cartoon stuff?
Me & Bro & Mom: Yes anime.
(Titans continue attacking)
(Dad stares at Tv)
Dad: Why are there a bunch of naked people..?
(My mom grabs her tablet and starts googling)
Mom: You should cosplay this!
Me: (Laughs) Everyone cosplays this!
Mom: Then cosplay one of those titans!
SPIOILERS This comment includes spoilers (And is the best)
(Eren turns into a titan)
Mom: Oh so he’s a Titan?
My Bro: Apparently… Tsubasachro is he gonna eat people?
Mom (with so much joy in her voice): So he’s the king of the Titans!
I love that my mom gets anime. She even knows the difference between anime and manga. But omg! It’s times like this when I feel like a need a “My mom watches anime” youtube channel. Cause she is hilarious!!!
As those of you who have followed me for awhile know… I love coloring manga scans! soooooo very very much!
I even take requests!
So feel free to drop me a pm if you've got a scan you wanna see in color!
A while back I shared what some of my colored wallpapers look like without the lines of the scan. Personally I think its pretty cool to see what it looks like without the manga tones and lines! Show how much work I did… XD
Also would anyone be interested in a coloring tutorial for Photoshop?
I'd make one if there's people interested but if not, I'll just sleep in later. XD So let me know if you'd be interested in that.
Anyways I decided to share some of my lintless colorings!
Anyhoo! Here they are! Check out my portfolio to see the finished wallpapers!
Have an awesome day/night!
I really miss being on here more often and commenting and posting and photoshopping awesome wallies…
But I suddenly became very busy about a week and a half ago when I got a good freelance gig.
And I am tooootally getting paid to edit in photoshop! (and yes, yes it is awesome.) But sadly it is also time consuming and I haven't quite got a hand on this whole new time management thing yet... since I just started.
I have to say I am definitely staying here on TheO, I love my hobby of wallpaper making and I LOVE reviewing manga and anime on my other world, I just have to figure out this new fangled work thing so that I can figure out how to have time for everything.
I'm also currently editing an indie feature, a short web series, trying to make wallpapers for contests, getting an amv ready to hopefully get into convention contests, finishing reading a book, working on a claymation, translating a manga series, playing Dragon Age 2, and so much more… I'm just so darned busy!
So thank you all who took the time to read this and with any luck you'll be seeing updates from me again soon!!!!
ps. My hobby is video editing and photoshopping and my job is photoshopping and editing… I MUST be crazy! LOL
First off sorry I haven't updated my review world in so long life got hectic and I just haven't had the time to reread or watch anything so I can write about it… But I shall be fixing this soon I promise!
But now for the main news!
I realized about 4 months ago that despite my love of video games I had never played one by myself… I usually just watch other people play. I failed at my one attempt to play Zelda Twilight Princess (I didn't even make it out of the first town), I couldn't even get Nemo to swim in a straight line in the Finding Nemo game, and I am well know among friends for being a terrible gamer. But darn it! I just love the stories and the bits of violence and the excitement games can give!
To the point, I bought a game and I have been playing it.
My goal is to play the entire game through with no help, spoilers or cheats. Its been very difficult for me. >.> graaah! Why are there so few health potions?!? I wish I was lying when I say this but… I literally spent an entire hour walking in circles because I kept missing the turn I needed to take… and I spent three freaking hours trying to defend a city from darkspawn and had to actually go back to a previous save, because apparently I missed all the things I was supposed to do in the city. -_- Which included recruiting every bloody person I could find to fight because evidently they all locked themselves indoors like cowards… Come on! You'll die if you don't freaking help out! You gonna die inside? or die die trying to live??
Anyhoo I wanted to share. ^-^ By the way the game I'm playing is Dragon Age Origins and it is really fun!
I'll probably talk more about it some time.
But for now just mentally send me you're gaming powers so I can somehow beat this game!
Hi! So I signed up this year for this here santa list! (Cause it looked fun!)
So here's my list!
