Yuri on Ice interview translation - Animage 2017/01 (p20-23)

I was going to post this last week but gave priority to the BD stuff. This will be the final interview from the booklet that came with January Animage! There’s still an interview with Kenji Miyamoto left untranslated, but it will be taken care of by @whiteboxgems​ whenever she has time! I’ll reblog it when it’s around.

This is actually 2 interviews, I’m posting them together because they were one after the other and (main reason) because the second one is very short.
A few notes below to better understand the interviews.

The first one is with Yuuichirou Hayashi, the one who created the ending (ED = ending by the way) footage. I have the feeling someone previously posted translations of the captions under the ED screenshots, but I don’t remember where and I’m pretty sure it was just the captions and not the interview parts, so here you have it complete. This one is pretty interesting because he explains in detail how they created the ED, and has some extra information on cut scenes etc. Definitely a must read in my opinion!

The second one is a short interview with Kayoko Ishikawa, the one who did the costume designs. Here you might think: didn’t Chacott design the costumes? I’ll explain. It’s more or less like with Mitsurou Kubo and Tadashi Hiramatsu: Kubo created the original designs for the characters, from scratch, and Hiramatsu transformed them into designs specifically created for animation, therefore with simpler lines, detailed expression sheets and so on. Likewise, Chacott did the original designs for the costumes, from scratch, based on the indications by Yamamoto and Kubo, and then the anime’s costume designer simplified and modified them so that they would be suitable to be animated. (Before actually animating them there’s a further step: the anime’s color designer is going to decide the exact colors, shadows and highlights included, that will be used inside the anime. I translated an interview with the color designer Izumi Hirose some time ago)

I usually don’t add pictures but this time I felt that it would be better to add them as an immediate reference. However, they are just for reference and are not meant to be visually stunning, so please bear with the quality because I just took photos of the magazine with my phone and quickly edited them.

Translation under the cut! (kind of image-heavy)

today I stumbled upon your haikyuu au~ oh its so sweet. I really like your drawings and it´s great that everyone of the 4 seijous is in another tribe. Iwaoi is my fav of all times but I like it that Iwaizumi and Tendou were playing together as children~ (Iwaizumi were watching over him on the picture is so sweet)

Actually that’s how this idea was born, I wanted to draw the seijou 4 as different benders, each one with their own element. And about Tendou, when I decided make him a waterbender, I thought, Iwa is a waterbender too, why not make them friends?! But that’s in their childhood, I don’t think they would have the best relationship now lol

So I’m about to lose my frikkin mind with animating and drawing in my style which means meME TIME!! 

Some people have noticed that I have this knack at style adaptation but this time I really wanted to put myself to the test with some great spn art styles!!

Each person here has granted me permission to draw in their style for the meme and oh my god I had a ton of fun!!!!!!

first box is mine and i hate my own style with a burning, fiery passion rn ngl it is so difficult even for me (which is why i slapped a drawing i had on hand lol)

@kamicom oh my goddd i swear ur artwork is exactly everything that i love smashed into one i’m such a sucker for cute girly pastel shoujo stuff i have no idea why my actual style is the exact opposite…!

@vinnie-cha holy shit your style made me use a SAI brush I never knew eXISTED LMAO??? This was fun bc this forced me to do some airbrush and flow brush techniques for oNCE. I think I also spent the longest time on yours homg.

@sketchydean DOING UR STYLE OF LINE ART WAS SO THERAPEUTIC YOU HAVE NO IDEA. Also it’s taken me this long to realize you shade with about 3+ colors how u do dat on a daily basis.

@consulting-mutt Your style had me think a lot it was very educational on how to nail everything down perfectly like you do ;q;

@diminuel hhhHHHH I LOVE YOUR STYLE SO MUCH???? Adapting it has been on my bucket list since forever I wish my style was like yours oh my god ;w;

@jennilah I FEEL LIKE UR STYLE IS FORCING ME TO USE RAD SUPPLIES LIKE BRUSH PENS AND SPRAY PAINT CANS idk every time I see it’s i call it the “fuq da police” style and I think that’s beautiful.

Thanks again to everyone who allowed me to do this meme I am forever grateful \o/

share a dating experience that went horribly wrong!!

omg its funny I get this message lol, omg so recently I started using this gay app called Grindr more often. I always have people messaging me but one guy had caught my eye, so we talked for a few weeks and he was super sweet. Then I decided why not yes to him wanting to meet me, so we made plans to meet, and omg omg the guy who I met was a completely different person, I literally freaked!!! I had no idea I was being catfished and I was so scared tbh, but I decided to look into a way to not being cat fished ever again, so I found this app called Love Lab and its amazing because its an app that checks if the person is real and not just a scam or impersonator, trust me this has saved me from any other awkward meets!! You should download it here and try it out if you use dating apps!!

Can I just say, I feel like I'm the only one that's extremely irritated with the whole moving theories? Like it's great if they are but in all seriousness, there's a lot to disprove them moving, specially right now with everything going on(vaca). And moving is something serious, not some secret project that doesn't have to be acknowledge right away like moving would. Why the fuck would they be so hush hush over moving? There's no need to?? And dan said he's redecorating his room SOO... no move.

fair enough. idg why it’s the foundation for so much discourse to be honest. if they move they move if they don’t they don’t. they inevitably will eventually bc they’ve said themselves that the house is too small for all of their things. so it’s rly more a matter of “when” and that seems v uninteresting to me overall to be frank

edit: since yesterday i’ve been thinking about the wholly inadequate answer i gave to this ask. not only was i a bit condescending in my response (and i want to say sorry about that bc i didn’t intend for my tone to be laced with so much judgment … of course it’s valid to be interested in if/when they’re moving and think about what it could mean for them,) but i also didn’t even really respond to the question that this anon posed and i feel really bad about it (which is also why i realized i should probs log off and not try to answer much else, since i was not in a great place to be thinking about this stuff.) 

i do want to try and respond better tho to the question of why dnp would “be so hush hush over moving” (though i apologize in advance since u said you’re feeling irritated by the moving theories. this is a full on explanation of all the evidence that supports that theory.) the first point i want to make is that i actually don’t think they’re really trying to keep it hush hush. they’re obviously not outright stating that they’re moving, but dan especially has made several allusions to that notion over the last few months, many of which seem to have been forgotten in the overall discussion happening in the fandom right now. there were all of the needing storage mentions of course, and then the explicit statement in that january live show that “getting more storage” was definitely on the agenda for 2017. that could obviously be an innocuous statement, but with dan’s extensive knowledge of phandom discourse, the chance seems slim that he didn’t know that “getting storage” was being used as a way to talk about moving. then there were all of those subtle mentions about how long they’ve lived in the flat–i think on 2 or 3 separate occasions dan brought up that he couldn’t believe they’d been there for 5 years now. there was also the mention that he wants a new piano, and that that was something he would do this year. again while it’s possible he meant getting a new piano in this flat, he’s also stated in the past that the piano has been in that apartment since it was constructed and it just seems more feasible to accomplish that goal in a new place? and he also stated in january that after filming a lot for dapg, the early part of 2017 would be dedicated to “life things.” and, finally, with respect to yesterday’s live show, if they’re really trying to keep this some enormous secret dan would’ve tried a lot harder imo to hide the absence of the wirrow painting and the shit on his bedside table. or he would’ve waited until after the tuesday live show to get the stuff moved. or he would’ve canceled the tuesday live show altogether, especially bc he had a pretty solid excuse in being swamped with pre-travel preparation (he even made it seem like a possibility that he wouldn’t stream today during the joint live show last week.)

generally, i do think there are a number of reasons they would want to keep it mostly secret (the pressure from millions of people openly speculating about it, drawing conclusions from it, expressing their heartbreak bc of their emotional attachment to their current flat, etc. seems like an incomprehensible stress on top of the already stressful process of moving.) but i also think it’s important to note that they’re not really trying very hard to eliminate speculation on it either. in my opinion, they seem more like they’re attempting to lowkey prepare people without outright stating it so that no one who is seriously invested in them and their personal matters (aka the ardent live show watchers) can truly claim to be shocked or surprised when it happens. i mean, just look at their tags here on tumblr rn–if they were aiming to keep it “hush hush” i would say they miserably failed. if, however, their goal was to tell people subtly without confirming it outright,, then they clearly succeeded.

overall, since dnp have always been people who seem to make every decision and statement with so much premeditated thought, the easiest explanation of all of the past statements i’ve listed (and yesterday’s very pointed “you could say i’m relocating it … one could say” …. like rly if he’s aesthetically rearranging his current bedroom why that sketchy “one could say” addendum? it makes literally no sense in that context) is that they’re moving. i also don’t understand why it seems like such a ‘reach’ to people. they’ve lived in that flat so long. they’ve talked about needing more space for so long. it just seems very logical to me on every level that two people with their level of intertwined living and their financial capacity would take this relatively chiller time in their professional lives to do something about their struggle w too limited space, the annoying loudness of their street, their leaky gas pipes, their overbearing landlord, etc. etc. and “see if there’s a better way to live” (also dan’s words from earlier this year, in case ppl forgot) 

in short, all of these things seem to make at least a reasonable case for them moving (and moving soon), and  all of dan’s talk about aesthetics and new backgrounds for his videos, plus asking viewers to send him “palettes,” are easier explained, imo, as just a bit of (adorable) excitement around the upcoming process of redecorating in a new place. he’ll still need to think about how to arrange his furniture and what sort of decorative pieces to add to his background in this hypothetical new place, obvi, and he never explicitly said the words “i’m redecorating this bedroom that i currently inhabit.” moreover, that they’re moving and some of their stuff has already been packed away explains all of the sketchier elements of the show in a much cleaner way. for example, why was dan’s excuse for using his phone that the mouse to his “laptop” was dead? do they not have batteries? do they not have other computer mouses in their house? (they do. like at least 2 if not more.) why would not having a mouse, if that was even true, necessitate him sitting on his bed with his phone? why not use his laptop? or if that’s broken too, why not use phil’s laptop as he has done before? using a phone seems like the most inconvenient solution, and sitting on the bed with that phone seems doubly inconvenient. like, let’s say all of the other tech is packed away for their trip or dead or broken and his only option really was his phone … why did he choose to sit on his bed? something he hasn’t done in a live show in literal years? something that is so clearly uncomfortable? wouldn’t it have been easier to sit at his desk with his phone leaned against something? and then obvi why the weirdness with the painting? why the empty bedside table? also, why will phil be unavailable to do a live show until the 25th if the aus convention ends the 15th and, by dan’s own words, they’re coming home before going to florida? 

i really think the simplest explanation to all of these things is that his room is being emptied and he didn’t want to show us, they’re in the process of moving some stuff out, maybe all of it, so that they’ll be totally relocated in the coming weeks. i think the notion that he was talking about rearranging his room makes much less sense bc then he would’ve just directly said “lol i’m rearranging my room right now and i need ideas and also that’s why the painting is gone.” there was literally no reason for him to be so weird and unclear about it. that they’ve been house-hunting and packing shit up would also account in large part for their apparent busy schedules and stress over the last few weeks. it would account for why dan has made so many allusions to being tired (rmmbr “i’m so tired … i don’t know why … actually i do know why”?? rmmbr him clarifying at one point that he was “physically” tired??? hmmm.) 

obvi everything is speculation at the end of the day, i could be totally wrong on all of this and dan might just be a crazy person who says random misleading shit for kicks, but i guess overall i’m just a bit confused why the idea that they’re moving is being treated like some sort of outrageous tinhat theory when: 1. there have been so many signs pointing to it 2. it just makes sense for them at this stage of their lives, and 3. they’ve seemingly not tried super hard to hide it either. 

Be My Princess peaked to the point that it got a sequel and I have no idea why Voltage didn’t take the opportunity to give the butlers’ routes or an app or something, literally everyone was asking for it and Voltage gave them prominent parts in the routes they were featured in, at least for male otome side characters. Not only that, but they were made attractive. Like what was the point if they weren’t going to go anywhere with it?

707 as Austin Powers.

Made because of @808lien. @guardmesherlock-rowan, this is why I haven’t been on Tumblr when I have internet, lol.

Let me know what you think! Ima do Zen next- Still am not concrete as to who Im gonna do him as- so any ideas are welcome!  XD

Should you fight Topp Dogg?

A/N: I’ve seen this done a lot and I don’t think a toppdogg version was made lol I just thought it was super funny. Definitely not my idea, so credit is due to whoever came up with this hilarious concept 🙃

 P-Goon: yes!! Fight his tiny ass!! Why he always taking off his shirt? Why he always MCing when there’s no need for an MC? So obnoxious oml please knock his ass out. serious “Leader” my butt smfh 

 Hojoon: idk tbh he’s kinda sus…he seems all quite and innocent but when the camera are off he’s a real Scorpio™. He was born on Halloween so I bet he’s freaky. I’d fight him for always looking better than me. Don’t hurt him too bad bc Sangdo will probably scold you like a mom 

 Sangdo: no? Wtf? Are you an animal? Why would you want to hurt this Pisces baby :( if you do then Hojoon is probably already planning your murder 

 Nakta: I wouldn’t mess with him tbh he’s really tall and could beat my ass any day…but yeah he steals everybody’s food so fight him for that. Just throw a couple punches and run away quickly and pray he doesn’t catch up to you

 Yano: no omg he’d probably start crying and think about all the things he’s done wrong in the past :( he looks mean but trust me he’s a squishy panda maknae on the inside and everything affects him aw poor baby 

 A-Tom: the second maknae aka the second in line for the throne in hell. So arrogant and selfish, please fight him. You’ll probably end up apologizing afterwards just because he’s so pretty. Might laugh at you while you’re throwing your punches. Might hit you back rly hard and knock you out…take your chances

 B-Joo: yes jfc I’ll literally pay you to fight this punk. Stop saying WOOWWW all the mf time you lil shit. It’s adorable, but I think we all know he’s on the verge of insanity. Also don’t hurt this one too bad bc Hansol will probably murder you in your sleep

 Xero: tbh? Yes. Although he might not even get what you’re doing and end up giggling. So dumb. But pls don’t break his nose or ruin his face. Aesthetic prince, so you should beat him up for always acting cool and pretty and better than you

 Hansol: idk man he’s difficult bc he’s so bipolar. He might cry before you even touch him, other times he might try to choke you with his dirty underwear. Bring backup just in case tho. B-Joo will probably be watching on the side, giggling and stuffing his face with popcorn 

 This was so fun to make lol if you want another group, let me know 😇

Haggar being revealed to be Altean was great for so many reasons.

The Blade of Marmora showed us that this show is not all black and white and that the Galra is not some evil faceless empire.  Rather it’s made up of individuals who can be good or bad and are most likely a mixture of both, which I think is important to apply to the Alteans as well.

So far within Voltron, we’ve learned that Alteans were predominantly explorers and diplomats.  We know that they had a mutualistic relationship with the Balmeras and that they created a giant robot known as the Defender of the Universe.  I mean honestly, they seem pretty great.

By showing Haggar, a known villain within the show, to be Altean, not only has there been complexity added to Haggar’s character as well as added emotional conflict to Allura’s fight against the Galra, but most importantly it’s humanized the Alteans.  

It’s been easy to romanticize what Altean society must have been like before the fall and I’ve done this myself.  But I think it’s important for to show that despite how idealized a society or time period may have been, no time or place is perfect and neither are its people.

I have no idea why Haggar joined Zarkon and  helped destroy her own people, but I am looking forward to finding out what her motivations are and were to do so.  Hopefully it will be revealed, or at least hinted at, in season 3 now that we know she is Altean.

sorry not sorry :’D  I’ts been overdue that I drew smth for the parents of the group. n then that infamous gif set from chris evans in “Puncture” made it’s way on my dashboard yet again n suddenly it hit me n I HAD TO DO IT. the voices in my head left me no choice :’‘‘‘‘DDD

I’m aware that Glaido wouldn’t give a shit about shirts but I found the idea hilarious of this muscle mountain trying to fit into Iggys clothes n miserably failing to find a shirt. Dad worries to accidentally scare of the common folks n his baby sis lol 

ps. Give this man some boyhair for gods sake! They gave Nyx the goods, so why not Gladio? Too many people are irrationally afraid of nipples n bodyhair :/

The List - ACOWAS vs. ACOWAR

So, many folks in the fandom know that last year, right after ACOMAF came out, I wrote a 76-chapter, 13-one-shot fan fiction of what my version of Book 3 would look like, titled “A Court of War and Starlight.” Ever since, people have asked me what would happen if things were similar in A Court of Wings and Ruin, to which I responded that it would be fun to see what I guessed right, but that I highly doubted there would be too much similarity. 

Well, as I was reading ACOWAR, I kept a list of things that I guessed or were similar. There are some things that aren’t 1-for-1 similar, but that I included anyway because it was close enough. I didn’t give myself credit for super obvious things, like “Feyre and Rhys will have sex.” lol. I tried to keep it to things that really could have gone either or any way. I also have a column for “explanation.” Some things I am not surprised I guessed because I know my folklore really damn well and did my research writing ACOWAS. Knowing SJM would stick to some of these stories made some guesses definitely educated. That said, there are a couple of things where I have no idea how I guessed them or why they’re similar. 

This is all for FUN. It is not a judgment on the quality of ACOWAS vs. ACOWAR. Also, be warned that there are SPOILERS below the cut!

With that, let us begin!

This blog is if YouTube was a giant sitcom that's been running for a decade with 9+ seasons with just an abundance of characters, and it's absolutely fantastic lmao what gave you the idea to add "random" quotes to screencaps/photos of YouTubers?

Haha, that sounds about right. XD Thank you, friend! I’m glad you like it. :3 

I think the idea was a shower-thought, tbh; the first post was going to be a stand-alone thing, not a blog. I just thought of the quote and was like, “lol, that’d be funny with Jack and Mark.” But then I had so much fun with it that I made a few more, and then it turned into a project, and I figured I should put it all on a separate blog so I didn’t annoy anyone.

At first it was just Parks and Rec quotes, which is why the blog has its weird name; over time, it started branching into other sources, because it was more fun. The whole thing just kinda evolved gradually. But people seem to like it, and I like making posts, so here we are! XD

I don’t know how to like things casually. I got really into youtube, so I needed to do something creative with it, lol. I’m constantly surprised and grateful to see other people liking the blog, and I love the requests and suggestions I get from everyone. You guys are the best. Thank you so much for interacting with me and this silly blog. <3

Saga on Ice - Yuri on Ice Karatsu Tourism Collaboration

Saga on Ice is a special tourism collaboration held by the city of Karatsu in Saga Prefecture, as Karatsu was used as the model for Hasetsu, Yuri’s home town in Yuri on Ice. Saga prefecture is right next to me(I live in northern Fukuoka), and although I’ve been to Saga city I’ve never been to Karatsu. I’ve always been meaning to explore Kyushu some more given how much time I’ve spent living here, and given that this event was going on over Golden Week and @hideoutfromreality​ was visiting I figured it was a good chance. 

What I knew: The Karatsu tourism organization are really excited about Karatsu being featured in an anime and want to take advantage of it with some limited merch.
What I didn’t know: The Karatsu tourism organisation are really, really excited about this and kinda went all out lmao. I was surprised at how much they did to attract YOI fans to the place.

Anyway, I bought a little Viktor with me, so here’s my photo report of the things we saw.
