I thought akiba scene would be next week BUT THANK YOU IT APPEARS FASTER ;;//////////////////////////////////////////////;; kinda ‘off’ from manga but STILL CUTE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH//////////////////////////////

2 Year Anniversary

I did it. I rewatched Your Lie in April and planned it accordingly just so I could finish today, March 19th, which marks the 2 year anniversary of the day the final episode was aired. I’m in tears; actually, I’ve been in tears through the entirety of rewatching this and this anime is even more beautiful the second time around because I feel and see so much more. Knowing the ending and still being able to enjoy and feel all these emotions is what makes Your Lie in April such a masterpiece. As a musician, this anime speaks to me on such a deep level. Some might say that the anime exaggerates, but in all honesty, being able to play like that, being able to feel what they feel, is what I strive to be. Watching the characters grow in just a span of 22 episodes is such an amazing feat. All the characters are loveable, relatable, and unique in their own way! Except Tsubaki because I just can’t bring myself to like her  I can most definitely say that nothing can touch my heart like Your Lie in April can. 

Kaori is so beautiful, and so strong and I can’t help but love her so much. Her outlook on life is amazing, and she smiles even at death’s door. She’s everything that I aspire to be. When I was following the anime as a new episode came out every week two years ago, I desperately hoped that she wouldn’t die. This innocent, beautiful angel couldn’t just die like that. Alas, the ending that we all wanted never came to be. The anime remained faithful to the manga to the very end, and our amazing heroine had to leave us behind. The letter that she left behind was so beautiful and heartwrenching and was the main source of my tears. She didn’t have any regrets. In essence, her dream came true. She built Kousei back up when he was down in the dumps and made him into a better man. After her death, I was sure Kousei would relapse and quit music for sure, but he didn’t. Kaori’s influence was able to help him move on and mature so much than when we first saw him. And that shattered my heart even more. They’re perfect together. They were soulmates and anyone could see that they were the perfect match. How cruel is it of fate to take her away from him? They are aware of each other’s flaws, but they see it as beauty. They think each other’s imperfections are perfect. They were meant to be. And his last song; their last performance together in spirit— goodness gracious that tugged on my heartstrings. He overcame his fear to play despite knowing he would lose everything again and played for her. He played for her to say goodbye. Excuse me while I go cry my eyes out in a corner again :’)

I have so much more to say about this, but right now I’m a jumbled up mess and this anime just pulls out emotions from me that I didn’t even know I had and throws them right back at me without remorse. Watching this is like going on an emotional rollercoaster and not knowing where you’ll end up. But the messages and the symbolism that this anime conveys is like no other. It’s something that I can never forget and something that I would willingly throw myself into again even though I know it will cause me emotional pain.

But you know what? Being able to feel all this, just watching something that can evoke so much emotion and make you reflect upon your own life like that: that’s what makes me love Your Lie in April so much. Say what you will, but I think Your Lie in April is beautiful.

P/S: I was also so inspired that I wrote a poem in response to Kaori’s letter from Kousei’s point of view—

At this point, I’m just trying to do everything I can to relieve myself of these tears…

A Japanese fan’s prediction of when FT is ending

This is just a fan’s prediction based on his observations. While he gives a solid reasoning behind his prediction, nothing can be certain until there is an announcement from an official source.

For those who have read about the rumor of Fairy Tail ending with chapter 545, it originated from a prediction made by Sewa Hiro on Twitter.

Sawa-san heard from his Twitter followers that there are words hidden in the cover pages since “FT Memories” started (from chapter 525). In the latest chapter for example, “DE” is written on Toby’s chest.

Based on the words hidden in the covers that have been released so far, he thinks that it forms a message to thank the readers for following the series till its end.

This table summarizes his prediction:

He thinks that the message formed by the hidden words is “saigo made ouen arigatou gozaimashita / さいごまでおうえんありがとうございました”, which translates to “thank you for your support till the end”.

If the final chapter comes after FT Memory 16, which is when the hidden words are predicted to end, the series will end with issue 35 of WSM on 2 August. This is the same date and issue where Fairy Tail was first serialized 11 years ago.

Once again, this is a fan prediction. The ending date can easily change depending on the message the hidden words are trying to say. The series may or may not end with chapter 545, and there is no official word on when it is ending as of now.

Thank you for 9,000 followers! Here’s a ficlet about Mari being protective of her little brother.

“Hopefully you can help me,” said the man on the phone with the funny accent. “My name is Victor Nikiforov, and I’m looking for Yuuri Katsuki. He said his family owns a hot springs resort, so I looked up the phone number on the internet. Can you tell me if I have the right place?”

Mari almost hung up immediately without offering a response. Ever since Yuuri had inadvertently become a viral video star after performing one of Victor Nikiforov’s routines, the onsen had gotten more than a few prank calls. One person had pretended to be a reporter but had instead turned out to be one of Victor’s crazy fans. Apparently this new caller wanted Mari to believe he was Victor Nikiforov himself.

Yeah, right.

“Yuuri’s my brother,” she said, a little heat in her tone.

“Oh, great!” the prankster said. “Could I speak with him please?”

Mari rolled her eyes. Was that supposed to be a real Russian accent? This guy’s impression of Victor was pathetic.

I was working on my Japanese Homework when I had a revelation about Law at the end of Dressrosa as well as about Corazon’s “I love you” and figured I might as well share: 

When Bellemere died, she looked to Nami and Nojiko and said “I love you” And used the Japanese word “Daisuki (大好き)” When Corazon last looked at Law he said “I love you” but used “Aishiteruze(愛してるぜ).”

Suki (好き), in Japanese, means “To like.” Making it Daisuki turns it into “really like” “am very fond of” or “I love you” depending on the context. It’s the most common form that the phrase “I love you” takes the shape of and is often the only form used between people.

Aishiteru (愛してる), on the other hand, is a very heavy, strong, and rarely used word in Japanese. Many Japanese people go their whole lives without ever using it because in Japanese culture, verbally expressing Love is something they are hesitant to express openly (preferring to show love instead) and especially of the Aishiteru kind. To use Aishiteru is to, in effect, tell someone that “I love you so much that I can’t imagine my life without you in it.” It’s never something that you use casually (if you ever use it at all). The “ze” attached to the end of Aishiteru just makes it a more casual and “cool” or “manly” way of saying it. So when Cora-san looks at Law and says “Aishiteruze” he is, in effect, saying: “I love you and I literally can’t imagine you not being a part of my life anymore, and I am saying this in the most casual and manly way possible, okay?” That was the strength of Corazon’s love for Law. But Law didn’t know that at the time. He was young and had probably never once heard the word being used before and probably thought Cora-san was just being a dork. He wouldn’t really understand it until his talk with Sengoku among the rubble of Dressrosa. Sengoku had told him to stop sullying Rosinate’s love with imagined requirements and conditions and then Law remembered. With wide eyes, he remembered Corazon’s exact words to him: “Oi, Law. Aishiteruze.” I love you, and it finally hit him. He finally realized and understood just how strong and unconditional Corazon’s love for him had been and that he hadn’t had to do anything to validate it. Corazon loved him for him and not for what he was. And finally, finally, Law found the resolution he had been searching for. The relief that Doflamingo’s defeat hadn’t given him. The freedom from his past that he so desired… and it brought him to the brink of tears. (let’s admit he would have cried if Fujitora hadn’t ruined the moment)

(All I wanted to do was write that I love cats, not punch myself in the face with feels about Law’s flashback again. Excuse me while I cry in the corner.)

(It’s a shame these things don’t translate well into english)

I just got a job at a flamenco show place as a receptionist mainly dealing with the Japanese clients, but yesterday this french lady came up to me and she was trying to find out whether kids could come to the show, and I tried communicating to her in my FLAWLESS FRENCH that only children above 6 could come, but instead of saying “plus de six ans, okay” I went “plus de six ans, daijoubu” and now I am reconsidering the meaning of the universe…

My Favourite Hasetsu Moments!

The best of all that happened in Hasetsu; enjoy!

10. Makkachin jumping on Yuuri, and that sad moment when he actually wanted it to be Vicchan.

He didn’t even, in his wildest dreams, think that Victor would come, and neither did I.

9. Yurio coming to Hasetsu to find good fashion.

Look at his face, it’s like he’s found heaven.

8. Minako-sensei welcoming Yuuri.

The best and the most dedicated teacher ever tbh

7. Yuri = Yurio

Arigatou for this beautiful name Mari-neechan!

6. Victuuri bonding at its finest 

Okay but this moment was so important because Victor said exactly what Yuuri wanted to hear and that is what we all want in an OTP isn’t it lol

5. The first ever Eros.

Yuuri had me and Victor at that smirk alone

4. Victor watching Yuuri skate alone.

He knows what kind of a prince Yuuri is already, so he knows he needn’t worry about the magic spell he wanted to find lol

3. Victor’s beautiful ass.

Need I say more?

2. Yuuri paying his respects to Vicchan.

I feel like Vicchan played a very important role in making Yuuri the person he is today, and I wish we could see some moments between Yuuri and Vicchan soon.

1. Yuuri meeting his mother after five years, and his mother was just as happy as ever.

I love Yuuri’s mum - she’s like my favourite mum, after my mum lol. She and Toshiyo are supportive parents and acknowledge that their son is strong and have given him chances to redeem himself. They don’t even force him to help with the Onsen - they let him pursue his dreams and goals and that is beautiful af.

SasuSaku event in Narucole (♡´❍`♡)*✧ ✰ 。*

GREAT, I’m busy atm and they make SasuSaku event NOW?! (O∆O) Gotta be an all nighter for playing because I draw in the morning.

My team.

The last opponents are either Sakura, Sasuke, or both.

Actually it is an event for Sakura’s birthday (March 28th). There’s a scene where Sasuke (and Team 7) congratulate her.

“Sakura, happy birthday.”

“Sasuke-kun, arigatou!”

I like Sakura’s reaction when she met Sasuke (it occured after the fighting so just let the background be lol).





The gacha result is not too good. I got Sakura and Utakata but I wanted her (and her husbando) adult form  (。•́︿•̀。)

Can’t wait till Sasuke’s birthday. Maybe next time their princess joins too? ♡✧( ु•⌄• )

Quartet Night LIVE Evolution 2017

Have safely finished.
Really thank you very much.

This time’s LIVE is, just as Shou nii said in the main part

As our goal to『repay』everyone we repeatedly rehearsed etc. Everyone who we can see who came to the venue, and though we couldn’t see, everyone who came to watch the Live Viewing. Everyone’s smiles, while feeling happiness, while thinking, we stood on the stage.

At 5th rehearsals some days before the real thing the 4 of us gathered! Although there were specific things that happened.

This time, during the rehearsal period for about 1 week, the 4 of us Quartet Night was together the whole time.
In the anime, there were training camps, a lifestyle where they lived together.

Being able to have a taste of that sense, we wondered can the 4 of us gave it our all as 4 on stage and be able to give a believable performance.

Hearing Tatsu nii, Tomo nii, and Shou nii whining, saying they don’t want the live to end, hearing them say such words, really came directly to my chest.

Of course I was like that too.
We were together the whole time after all.
It may be a senpai kouhai relationship but, to me, Reiji, Ranmaru, Camus and Ai’s relationship, having spent such a long time together… It feels like I’ve made 3 older brothers.

The feeling of not wanting to separate has sprung from my heart.

Of course I think, I want to
Be with everyone at the venue, forever.

We did special training for tens of hours.
The moment we felt for 3 hours or so ended just like that. Enphemeral.

But, from now on too, even with that transient part of a bad time, I want to give everyone a taste of that heated time again.
I want to take this feeling and break through to 6th.

Honestly, personally, there were regretful parts as well.

For those parts too!

And, once again, this work


All of the staff.

My gratefulness to so many of you who love this work.
One more time.

Really, thank you very much.

Yoroshiku onegaishimasu, from now on too!

Quartet Night!

To the next stage.

Thank you.


I made a BBRAE Animation thing. ;v;’’’ It’s been in my folders for months, so I finally rendered it. It’s unfinished, but maybe the support will motivate me to finish. ^^; I hope you all like it! Please like it on youtube, and share and comment if you feel inclined! It helps a lot! Arigatou ;v; 

About: Raven cannot face her emotions and her love for Beastboy..She cannot deny it any longer, but she must make a choice: To fall completely for him, or run away from her affections. She may try to run, but memories don’t easily leave, and feelings this strong cannot simply be erased.

QUARTET NIGHT LIVE Evolution 2017 - 2017/02/12 - REPORT Part ①

Do NOT repost
You can post the link but not the content.

As usually, not 100% accurate with the order, especially the talks, so much happened but I’m surprised with how much I remember.


I went to the Live Viewing at Saitama.
They sold goods at each cinema during their open time.

My cinema opened at 8am and I got to the the place just after 7am, there was already about 60-100 people lined up.

There were Shoutan fans!! They wore the PRISM long Tshirt and had the bags, I briefly acknowledged them. I had my PRISM Itta bag with me too (and a tiny Ai-chan itta bag).

We started moving a few minutes before 8am.

I kept thinking how they are selling the goods, do we tick what we want from a sheet? Do we buy at the till and tell the staff what we want?

I was too distracted while walking in, my eyes briefly glanced at the goods on the table to my left. I kept walking on.


I realised you just pick up what you want along the way and quickly snatched the pamphlet!
The next thing, oh the clothes…  It’s pretty dark grey, hmm, just one left…
Picks up to look at, about to put it back
I quickly held it close to me tightly.
THE LAST ONE!! 。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。
Most things were gone already! 😭
Only one Live towel left, I think there was 2 bags, I’m sure there was tshirts, but again my mind was somewhere else and never picked them up 😭
The next thing I picked up was Ai-chan’s brooch, there was some left along with Reiji’s, barely any character towels left.
Some light sticks

The charms were all gone too, but I wasn’t going for them.

There was quite a few fans left, Ai-chan’s had the most.
I made a last minute decision to get one to make up for not being able to get the other goods I wanted.

So, I got the pamphlet, cardigan, brooch and fan.
Plus 2 random keychains for spending over a certain amount
*Will upload pics later*

I opened the first random packet, Ranran came out, not too bad, next one was Camus.
Ai-chan~~~~ 😭

I went to the crowd of fans to try and exchange for Ai-chan, and if possible the QN logo

I seen the Shoutan fans again, they obviously would want Ai-chan, skip.
Where’s Ai-chan~~~

Ah!! Ai-chan!!
I asked the girl who she was looking for and she said “Camus-sama” SCORE!
Put Ai-chan’s one away, kinda still want the logo~

I stood for a while holding Ranran’s one
And then a girl came to me asking if they can get Ranran for the logo
Mission complete 💜
And now to roam about for 6 hours or so before the live (omg I was SOOOO bored! 😩)

Came back to the theatre and went to the screen, my seat was 7th row from the front

The girl next to me was wearing the Long T! Yeyy
Fan: are you Mikaze Ai’s fan?
Me: Yes~ Shoutan’s fan? ✨
Fan: Hai sou desu (yes that’s correct)
Me: Yatta! XD
Fan: Yatta ^^ Yoroshiku onegaishimasu
Me: Yoroshiku onegaishimasu~

I asked her name, she’s Yukina.

The screen was showing the Live logo and then changed to the goods

Not long after it showed the venue!!!!

Ahh!! It was beautiful!! All monochrome
Part of the stage set was decorated with their character colours

We were saying how amazing it looks and she said it’s very QN-like ✨

She was like “yabai yabai!!”
I’m so glad a Shoutan, and a vocal fan is next to me!!
For the past lives I’ve been to, apart from Shoutan’s Osaka live(sat with a friend)
Every stranger I’ve sat next to are SO quiet!
Yeyy! It’s gna be fun! XD

We both freaked out

SHINee World 2017 in Osaka Day Two—170408

Taemin: Minho likes “Mr. Right Guy,” right?
Minho: Yes, I like “Get the Treasure” too!
Minho thought that the pronunciation was wrong so he tried to correct himself.
Minho: Get the Treazaa.
Key: Treasure.
Minho: Get the Treazaa.
Key: “sure.”
Minho: Get the Treasure.

[T/N: Japanese has a “Z” sound while Korean doesn’t. You can hear the SHINee members sometimes making a “J” noise while speaking Japanese when it should be a “Z” noise, such as saying “arigatou gojaimasu” instead of “gozaimasu.” The sound in “Get the Treasure” is supposed to be a “J.”]

I don’t care what anybody says

He had some amazing moments in that FS. 

Still an incredible skate, absolutely beautiful in terms of fluidity.

I’m still proud of him.

And you could see that right after his skate, he wanted to give his FS another go and was already thinking about what he did out there and started to replay jumps in his head and everything, like it wasn’t enough that you could see him trying to salvage the later half of the FS.

And the crowd was lovely, someone screamed “ARIGATOU” or something like that, just to let him know like “YOU DID GOOD MY SON!!!!”

All Japanese flags flying in plain sight. The audience was supportive of him.

He wasn’t in the best shape for this competition and we don’t need him to beat himself – but man oh man – is this going to bite at him for the rest of the summer.

Good ol’ Hanyu fire fuel coming next season.

Fire fuel.

Okay…….I need some of that Hanyu-hairbow action cause that was cute.
