Hiya Guys! Welcome to Ryuchu's Random Rants (a.k.a. RRR). This is a place where quite literally I'll rant about anything I feel need ranting about. My life, anime, video games, books...etc.

Since this will be full of all my personal opinions, It'll most likely contain spoilers at one time or another, so I guess if there are spoilers...I'll put a warning in the title of the post! (I really wouldn't want to black out a whole post with that black line thingy...that would be weird) ^-^

So Aywho (I LOVE THAT WORD!), enjoy your time here at RRR and welcome yourself to the secret workings of an insane person!

"I looked at my right hand, the hand with which I painted. There was power in that hand. Power to create and destroy. Power to bring pleasure and pain. Power to amuse and to horrify. There was in that hand the demonic and the divine. The demonic and the divine were two aspects of the same force. Creation was demonic and divine. Creativity was demonic and divine. Art was demonic and divine." --Chaim Potoko, "My Name is Asher Lev"


Hey guys! I just wanted to share the AWESOME news that I have been officially accepted into my school's Study Abroad Program! I will be spending 6 months studying abroad at Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo!

I can't even relay to you guys how FREAKISHLY excited I am, oh my goooooooooooooosssssshhhhh!!!!!! <3333333333333

Once I can think more coherently, I shall provide you with more information (if you have any interest in it), but right now I'm just going to continue spazzing in the corner.

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! X3

A Year Review

So, everyone is posting their 2012 Art Summary and, although I've never participated in the ritual before, I kinda wanted to participate. It was at this point that I recognized a serious problem.

I only posted 7 pictures this year.

Well that plan has gone completely out the window.~
So instead, I figured I'd just bother your all by posting several sketches/things I never posted from this year. I have a really bad habit of never finishing pictures or if I do finish them, I never post them. So I thought I would subject you all to several of my pictures from the year.

So yeah, here we go! :D

Gemma design stuff!~
...There's not much else to say about this one. ^-^;

External Image
This is the Pokemon character made human...I can never remember the term for it. Anyone want to remind me? Anywho, can you guess which Pokemon she is? Hint: It's a third-gen water type Pokemon.

External Image
Some random sketches.

External Image
This was a picture of a girl and some sort of winter spirit (which is why he's not outlines/shaded, 'cause he's not really there).

External Image
And here's random chibi pictures of the two characters from the previous picture. :D

External Image
Nope nope nope. No comment.

External Image
She's the main female character from the same story as this character. The wings look kinda wonky 'cause I drew it while I had no access to interwebz and therefor a proper reference on wings.

Goal for the New Year: Actually finish and post the pictures I start

Wishing everyone the best in the New Year! <3

P.S. I don't often re-watch anime, but I love Bokurano enough that I'm running it in the background as I write up a short story. All the happy scenes in the beginning become about 100 million times worse! ;^;
(...But you should still go watch it because its an amazing anime~)

I'm Back! (And Thank You!)

Just wanted to take a quick moment to let everyone know I'm back and thank them for wishing me well on my Birthday! For everyone going "Where are you back from?" (Which...I'm pretty sure that's everyone 'cause I didn't tell anyone on this site I was leaving...) I just got back from a 20 day trip to Germany! It was simply amazing and I loved every moment of it!~

For my birthday, I was in Germany, which was pretty cool. It was on 12/12/12 and I was turning 21, which was pretty cool. We climbed to the top of a hill to go to a castle, which was pretty cool. But you wanna know the most awesome thing?

I went to go see The Hobbit. Yup. I saw it on my birthday (so before it even came out in The States) and it was in German and I actually understood what the people were saying and it was wonderful!

I'll take the time to respond to all your lovely comments and such, but first I leave you with two very important pictures. First, one of my favorite pictures I took in Erfurt of their Christmas Market there.

And second, the haul of chocolate/candy that I brought back with me.

I'll (possibly) post more later if you guys want, but for now that's all you're getting. Well then, I hope you all have a great day! Once more, thank you so much for the birthday wishes! It was very sweet of all of you! :)
