Translating is HARD!

Hi all!

A little personal update here!
First off another shameless plug (since I have no shame) for my review world where I'm mucking through the world of the internet and Japanese culture for you to find entertaining series!

Ok now that thats out of the way, translating is HARD!!! ~_~
I have this series I just LOVE, Zetman, and the fan translators are great and used to update a chapter once a month but lately it's been… very slow, (I understand why but its saddening for me.)
So since I am impatient and dedicated to the series (I own almost all the books in Japanese) I've taken it upon myself to read it on my own… And Graaah I've translated stuff before but omg… this is like wading through mug up to my neck! Although my Japanese is lower intermediate at best, it still shouldn't be this tricky…
They keep using really formal speech (the bane of my existence) and using Japanese expressions I've never heard before. (Like calling someone a shell or saying that someone is planning something by saying he's "tailoring his intension") On the bright side though I've learned some colorful new Japanese insults and memorized the kanji for explosion. (There are multiple explosions in the chapter)

Also hey guess who's a huge Superman fan? ME!!!! And I really enjoyed the new movie, although I wish they'd let the ending sit longer for impact. (If you've seen it you know what I mean!)

Was there anything else… hmmm I don't think there was… I just REALLY needed to get my translation woes off my chest!

Thanks for reading and helping me blow off some steam!

ps. Hey I am at my 230th wallpaper at my next upload! Any ideas? ^-^

Things and Stuffs

Tsubasachro here doing a short little personal update!
I was just looking back on MyO for those of you who even know what that is…
and I haven't done one of this little things since I was truly active on MyO 3 years ago!!! O.o
Whats up with that?

So for anyone who cares, here are some random things about me that you probably don't know.

1. My favorite fruit is grapefruit. I have a special knife for cutting it and a special spoon for eating it too.
2. I've taken two years of Japanese. (and have a minor in Japanese history and culture) 日本語はおもしろい!
3. I am currently teaching myself Adobe Premeire
4. I make amvs quite often. Particularly Vassalord mmvs and other random fun stuff!
5.Reading makes me happy and I read very often! (including American comic books, and novels was well as manga.)

Anyways now that that's done, what about you? Anything interesting you've done that not many people know about?

Also (shameless self plug) check out my anime and manga review world! I am trying to build an audience and I'm looking for dedicated people who might want to guest post! ^-^

And now for my first claymation I made! My hands in half the shots but I think it adds character! lol

Thanks for reading if anyone actually did!

Just a Quick Update

Hey all!
I’ve been super busy this last semester so I haven’t posted as much as I usually do!
And it doesn’t help I’ve been having wallpaper maker block… and writers block… just everything block… >.>

At any rate, other than that life’s been going great! One of my short stories won 3rd place in UC Berkeley’s Sudden Fiction Contest! And as such I have now been published! Woot! Finally writing crazy weird stories is proved to be at least likeably crazy! d^o^b The only sad thing is I can’t post that story here… but on the off chance you see a Berkeley Fiction Review (the one with a creepy broken doll face) lying around… look me up! Its called Doorway Monster and its only two pages so you can read it in store nice and quickly!
In addition to that, while it didn’t win, I did have an amv of mine play at a big con! It was exciting to see it on the big screen playing to hundreds! Next year I am going to go for the win! XD

Also, I am going to stay busy for a good chunk of the summer, as I’ll be taking a cinematography workshop for two weeks, (I get to use a RED cam!) and also trying to get some sort of job.

But don’t let this make you fear! I shall still be posting wallpapers as much as I can… I just need to shake this dang creative block…

Seriously, got a suggestion or request? I’ll take it!


Laugh Like A Bell

Ok little pre note before I write the story, (or copy paste from Word as it were)
This is for phantomgirl21's Sideways chalenge! Woot!
Thanks to the urging on the part of Beloved Blood here I am! ^-^
That said I hope I didn't miss any rules... >.> If I did... at least the challenge was good imagination fodder!
Um yeeesss anything else..?
um an OC... loosely (very loosely) off of a time I awoke crying from a dream
Ok that's it!


I wake up and I wonder why I suddenly awoke. It was a sound. But what sound..? I hear someone crying and it feels distant like a shadow of another world. Slowly I become more conscious and sit up in my bed. The moon creates a beam of light across my ceiling and suddenly I am completely awake. Tears are streaming down my face.
Huh? Why am I crying? I reach a hand towards my face and feel that its wet. All I know is that I am filled with an incredible feeling of loss. I double over my body shaking with uncontrollable sobs. I hug my arms as tight around myself as I’m able and I try to remember. What was it? It was something important. What did she say to me? She? Wait the memory is slipping in and out of my hands. It was definitely something that happened in my dream.
Shock. My Friend was there. She was telling me something. It was important. I shut my eyes tight and try to focus and try to call back what happened and the words she said to me. What was it?
I find my mind drifting back to how she was when I knew her, her smiling face and how she always looked sad when she thought nobody was looking. And instantly I feel regret. I’ve been forgetting about her, about Amanda. Slowly but surely the years have dulled the features of my friend.
My memories are empty whispers, just a blank face with a smile, just gaping eye sockets with purple eye shadow, just a disembodied hand reaching towards a ball. Weather worn and tattered. I don’t really have many memories of her at all. How well did I really know her that all that remains in my mind are vague ghosts? How could I have ever cared about her if my mind can remember crying over losing her more than talking to her? Why can I only remember hearing about her death rather than Amanda’s voice?
How selfish can I be?
Years. How many years has it been. I haven’t even thought about you lately or maybe even not at all. You’ve been shoved right out of my head and it’s my fault. Now you’re even dying in my memory. It’s losing you all over again and it hurts. Maybe if I could remember what you said… maybe… maybe you’d be alive in my mind once more. Amanda, what did you look like?
What did you say? Your voice, what was it like? I remember you were quiet… Or is that just my imagination creating an illusion? Even my dream of you was just a dream. Yet still I struggle in the dark and I try and I try… I won’t let you suffer death again.
Ah! I remember something. Its fuzzy but it is something. We were playing a game and I missed a shot. You looked me in the eye and we laughed. I remember. The sound was like small falling bells. It was the first time I ever really saw you smile and the first time I heard you laugh. And now I cry.
I cry because you laughed and I cry because even as I hold onto that moment I can feel it leaving. It’s my ball of light and it’s being eaten by the dark. I am not ready. I don’t want to let go and I don’t want to forget you. I need to remember what you told me! I need to know and even through my tears and desperation I know that eventually water slips between the cracks of fingers. No matter how tight I may grasp.
I lay back down in my bed and I hear a car pass by. A bar of artificial light crosses the ceiling breaking up the moonbeam. Just like that the spell is broken. I close my tired eyes to try to sleep and try to dream. Tears continue to slip between lids because I know I’ll never dream of you again.
What did you say?
You’re gone, just a forgotten dream. I fall asleep looking a sliver moonbeam. I awake and I have the unusual sensation that I just heard a tingling bell fall to the floor, and we’re watching sideways. Huh, we? Hmm must just be my imagination. I begin to prepare for the day.
