[Current Music |Upendi - The Lion King 2]

I love how King of Ooo was a princess for a while and no one ever commented on that

like, the nearest they ever got to it was "hey did you notice he was wearing PB's clothes?" "yeah, that was sorta cool!" (which is also a great line, I love how literally no one gives a damn about him crossdressing, haha)

No one thinks it's *weird* but also no one continually points it out either. He just... is (well, was) a princess who happens to be a dude. I think that's cool. Ditto w/ Flame Princess technically being a king, but that doesn't come up too much :< I wish it came up more cause I think that's really cool too, but also I totally understand why it doesn't, she's too well established as "Flame Princess" now.. it's weird to think of her as anything else, haha.

I dunno where I was going with this.

I love it

[Current Music |Steven Universe (Bismuth) is on the TV]

So I had to just restart my computer (for some reason my browser refused to load up), so I decided to try and reinstall my tablet's driver again and see if that'd fix it (for some reason my tablet refuses to work, long story). Unfortunately, the CD drive won't friggin' open.. it just makes a "thunk" noise. sdfghjkl;'# WHY

Goddamn it.. it just feels like everything's conspiring against me lately. I mean, this isn't a particularly important thing, I guess, but that's not the point, it's just.. it's a little thing but the little things add up, you know? It's so tiring...

I think it's really cute how Bismuth doesn't leave Amethyst out of the weapon-giving scene. Like, she only met Amethyst maybe an hour ago, she obviously didn't have any weapon upgrades stored away for her, but she still went out of her way to include her and find something for her. That's cute.

[Current Music |Together in Electric Dreams - Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder]

So I was just about to come upstairs (well, "just", this was about 30 mins ago now, I'm typing this in bed, but you know), just sitting at the comp finishing off one or two things, and then I heard the distinctive sound of a cat about to vomit. So I look over and Silver is sitting on the back of the settee, retching and whatnot.. directly above her little sister Ginny Black's back. Ginny is just sitting there pretending like nothing's happening (instead of, you know, getting the fuck out of there). So I scramble to my feet and they're all numb/pins and needles since I've been sitting for a while, and I'm trying to get them into my slippers and I'm thinking "omg I'm not gonna make it, oh jesus, what am I gonna do-" and I manage to speed over there and get Silver onto the floor just in time. I stroked Ginny when I went up and she just sat there looking mildly rattled.

[Current Music |Oshiete Sensei-san - Natsu - Bottle Fairy]

aaaa, Bottle Fairy is so cuuuute.. the ending is totally bonkers, though. XD And Kusachiho has the weirdest/best idiot hair evar. It surrounds her whole friggin' head XD Also I love how Sensei-san just rolls with whatever.

also one of the funniest moments in the series is in the last ep, where they point out that the girls really do think that "Sensei-san" is his actual name XDDD I love this show, it's so silly and cute.

Question: who the hell is Maji-chan? I keep seeing pictures of her while googling the series, and there's a figure of her.. who is she?? I know there's that other fairy, Rere or whoever, who was only in the CD drama (which doesn't make sense to me - the fairies are meant to represent the seasons, so having five of them throws things off, plus her name doesn't even match the others'), but I can't find anything about this Maji-chan :s Weird.

I wish there was a full/longer version of "Oshiete Sensei-san", it's such a cute song and one of my favourite anime openings, but there's only the TV sized version :( I know there's the Natsu ver from the aforementioned CD drama, but that's a different version entirely.. I wonder if anyone's combined that and the normal version of the song, that would be cool. Maybe I'll try and do it sometime.

Attack! Attack! Number Oneeeee [Jun. 24th, 2017|09:26 pm]
[Current Mood |contentcontent]
[Current Music |Attack No. 1 no Theme - Kaori Fukuhara (Lucky Star)]

just got back from Pirates of the Caribbean.. 5? I think this is the 5th one now. I dunno. It's called Salazar's Revenge over here but I guess the original title is Dead Men Tell No Tales? Dunno why they renamed it over here, weird.

Anyway, it was good! I totally didn't understand it but lol I don't understand any of the PotC films. Well, not after the first one, anyway. The second one's fairly coherant I guess.. but then after that it becomes hard to keep up with ^^; They keep adding in all weird shit, idk.

I could've sworn the credits for the third film said Will and Elizabeth's kid was named Will as well o-O I kept waiting for them to handwave it by saying Henry was his middle name or something, but I guess they just retconned his name completely? Or I'm just misremembering, idk. It's been ages since I've seen the other films, so ^^;; I totally can't remember most of them. This one was way better than the last one tho, at least from what I can remember about it (I remember the mermaid chick and something about the Fountain of Youth or whatever and that's about it).

man Jack really got hit by the Flanderization stick though, huh. I guess he IS meant to be drunk off his ass at this point, but still..

I should finish watching Bottle Fairy, I got up to ep 12 before we went out to the cinema. Haha, PotC and Bottle Fairy. Those totally go together.

(I'll reshuffle if I get the same song twice, though, otherwise it's boring. I'm counting diff. versions of songs as 'the same song' too, since they still have the same title.)

To state our message with greater clarity~ [Jun. 23rd, 2017|05:52 pm]
[Current Mood |contentcontent]
[Current Music |Never Give Up Hope (Reprise) - Animaniacs]

aaa, Wakko's Wish is so good. I love it.

What always kills me though, is how everyone randomly swaps outfits a couple lines into the "Hungarian Rhapsody" song. XD They start off in pajamas and then there's a shot change, and then they cut back and everyone's fully dressed, I love it. And how everyone's in little groups, I love that.. well most everyone, I guess Minerva's by herself, for example. But you know what I mean. I just think it's a nice contrast, how everyone's working in little groups and then Salazar's off by himself.

Also Buttons' face when Runt calls Rita a dog. XD He just looks at her like "??? wtf? you're obviously a cat??", she kind of shrugs, and then he looks away like "meh it's none of my business". pfff. Mindy giving Buttons the pie near the beginning of their scene always gets me, too, it's so cute. (Also I like seeing Buttons 'win' for once :P)

also I've prolly said this before, but I love all the cameos. Especially how Flaxseed (from "The Big Candy Store") is there :B I like him, haha. And as someone who never liked her, I get a kinda vindictive pleasure out of Miss Flamiel being one of the only recurring chars that DOESN'T show up in the film >3 well, there are some others missing too.. Slappy's rogues gallery, Mr. Skullhead, The Flame.. I think those are all of them? (There's Billie and Snowball too, but they were more PaTB chars than Animaniacs chars. Well, Billie debuted in A!, but you know what I mean. Dunno what they'd do in it, anyway.) I think everyone else gets a cameo at the least (like, Katie Kaboom and her parents show up for 2 seconds in "The Wishing Star", the little blue bird flies by Slappy's house right at the very end, etc). The Flame prolly wouldn't have fit in (also, I don't like him/his eps anyway, so no complaints here :p), Walter and co I imagine they couldn't figure out what to do with them (I'm surprised they didn't toss 'em in a background shot or something, though), and as for Mr. Skullhead, he's kinda personality-less? Which works just fine for the "Good Idea, Bad Idea" bits (don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking them, they're one of my favourite things from A!) but I can't really imagine him showing up in this. (Plus he's kinda superfluous when they have the Mime, and I'd imagine they went w/ the Mime since a) he's in the theme song and b) he was created for A!, right? IIRC Mr. Skullhead was imported in from TTA) And.. idk where I was going with this, sorry, I kinda went off on a tangent.

I love how Brain clings onto Pinky in the scene where they're falling. :3 He specifically clings onto him first, if you notice. SO CUTE.

also Wakko's expression in the "death scene" fucking kills me every time. He looks so miserable :( Yakko crying kills me too, but Wakko's face is just, just really 'dead on', if that makes sense.. dunno how to word it.

I really dig how in the group shot at the end, when they're singing "Never Give Up Hope (Reprise)", everyone's standing in the same position as they do in the theme song (in the "We're animaney, totally insaney" bit). Well, everyone that's in that part of the theme, anyway (the movie scene has a couple of extras there too). Plus there's a couple of other differences (the Warner sibs' are standing in reverse order to how they're standing in the theme song, Chicken Boo's missing for some reason, and Newt's standing on his hind legs - he's on all fours in the theme song. Still, it's nice that they included him, since he otherwise doesn't do anything in the film XD), but you know. I love that kind of stuff. This film has so many callbacks in general, it's really nice...

(also - A+ to the animators for remembering to draw the Mime's mouth closed throughout all the songs. Well, except for that one shot in "The Wishing Star" ["He looked up in the sky.." etc], but that's so quick you can excuse it. They tended to screw that up in the show itself - he's drawn 'singing' with the others in the theme song - so it's nice to see they made sure not to do that here. :B It's not just A!, I remember at least one scene in TTA that had the same problem - Calamity was shown singing along with the others at one point in the Xmas ep, even tho he's usually mute. But I'm rambling...)
