Not that relevant thought to start the conversation:
What is this? How did this happen? The Top Tens is attracting pop fans in hoards anyway, some wiser than others, and while personal vote goes 100% to Miku...just how is she keeping that standing?
Unfamiliar with her competition? See: Kpop's biggest. Super Junior; ten impressively handsome young men (Early-mid 20s?) with some great vocals and a selection of Kpop's best choreography. For an example, their 2011 release was the beautiful, "Mr. Simple". So we'll just focus on SuJu and Miku for the moment...
Because Miku, surely there's international influence happening in the polls (Assuming first TTT is west-oriented which it very much seems to be, so.)? Kpop can lead on its own with only the west hitting Vote, no doubt--the past year, global domination is where Kpop has really been pushing hard. Miku, of course, being what she is, also has a global fan base which extends to the west--but to this point? versus the world's favorite South Korean idols? Some JP person shared the infos. Surely. (Especially since it's all fangirls voting. See: After Miku; everyone. Fans of "Alice Human Sacrifice" wouldn't overtake the competition; there's real conviction happening.)
Anyway, that all isn't that relevant. Thoughts, guys? Think it deserves thoughts, even if it's all a lot of fantasy and fangirls. Kpop is really an outstanding breed of music, and everyone here knows who Miku is, right?
In theory, would the electric angel performing as live as she can get at the 2012 Olympics be a good thing? Feel free to comment on the Kpop as well or anyone else really--but this is Japanator. Some Asian-ness would probably be prudent.
Imo; somewhat of a terrifying thought. Really, how would people respond to her? It seems extremely possible that she is too different, too obviously, ahem, virtual and robotic to be anywhere near acceptable let alone really lovable if she just apparated onto the stage and started singing. And, how would people see her? Gotta get a center seat for a Miku show, ohoho.
So yeah. It seems like a poor idea, it does, wonderful as she is. Maybe serve up some Kpop with Miku on the side.
Just a note. This is mostly me fangirling and contains no wit or informational value.
Queen Ekaterina Kurae...tweeted me back. Who watched Qwaser, huh? *raises hand* *flails wildly*
Hopefully it went something like this:
Katja: Appley Tune! Remove your shorts.
Appley Tune is my Twitter name--like, name, not even username, she fucking loves me. lolnoseehere: The queen is a god; she's go back and forth with people more often than I've ever seen. <333 And it's unique words, them are.
So like, that said; I suck. It took her two minutes to respond...bitch that I am, never imagining for a moment she'd take any heed, I watched Zakuro.. It took me THIRTY minutes to respond. With a gorgeous piece that looked like this:
Me: Of course.. -removes- (In English, naturally.)
I'm roleplaying with Queen Ekaterina Kurae. Facepalm or explosion of ecstasy? *facepalms* She Tweeted me again forty-nine seconds after my brilliant response...translator says, "This transformation." Looks like:
Hopefully...she's just as bad at English as I am at Japanese. I'll continue this as long as I can...
Thought you all should know. Because that is just fucking awesome. Follow Katja on Twitter as qwaser_Katha. (And yeah, is official Katja from Qwaser site. Whoever the dude running this is; he's awesome, just awesome.)
Any of you guyses had awesome Twitter experiences--with seiyuu or whomever? :33
EDIT: So apparently all the best sleazy characters do this. For how long? I'm gonna follow Riko from Kissxsis too. (Oh, and I'm a dog now. And there's a surgical knife somewhere.)
Now you can, too! Or something. Is there a different word for anime-decorated buses? Cars are itashas then there's motorcycles and bikes....
Just something seen as the most recent news piece on the official HOTD site. Kanji translator dictates something like it'll be infesting your school, times are escalating... And also circuit times?! Read it yourself here!
The rest of the photos are going to hang out in the gallery; do check it out, won't you?
And here, I just spent about two hours trying to write out some reasoning for my loathing of Angel Beats! with a plead that someone attempt to defend it--which I would then shoot down. But, as usual, AB! has sucked away my heart and mind.
Still, can't just walk away from such a great chance. If any of you AB! fans would like to stick up for what I find to be one of the most poorly done, cheapest, most conceited, and just all around fucktastic shows ever created--that'd be really nice. If not, I understand.
Now. Go look at the burnt manga. Because it took a seriously ridiculous time to upload those few photos--twice the time it took for the book to be reduced to stardust and I had to leave one out as it...just...it was shy, I guess.
