my other pictures will be better quality

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)

Do you have any advice for starting a studygram? Yours is such an inspiration!

Hey! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! I hit 103,000 followers this morning and I feel so excited. I’ve been in a great mood all day but it is so crazy yet amazing! Anyway, I’ll kind of start from the beginning and go through with some tips!

  • create a cool username - generally, study related is going to be best for a studygram! If you’ve got a Tumblr, you can always use the same username. I tried but just ‘emmastudies’ was taken and deleted so I opted for the next best option!
  • organise your profile - personalised icon are really popular on Instagram, so you could make one and save it to your phone. Canva.com and flaticon.com are great sites for icons! Some people use their own photos or a selfie so just make sure it’s high quality! Your bio is important too. You can design it any way you like. Most people will include their name and education level/system (high school, university, etc). This is completely up to you. If you want to have the gaps between like mine (@emmastudiess), type it on your notes and then copy + paste. Remember to add in your website if you have one!
  • develop a feed that you like!! - some people place a lot of emphasis on having an “aesthetic feed” but I feel like whilst it plays a part, it isn’t everything. I think it’s more important to have similar(ish) photos rather than everything being exactly the same. My feed is similar between photos but isn’t absolutely identical. I often will have photos that look brighter than the others, etc, and I’ve come to a point where it doesn’t bother me. I used to be extremely conscious about my feed and wanted it to be heavily edited like some other accounts but I felt it was unnatural and too washed out so I do a very very simple editing process now. If you’ve followed me for a good couple of months, you may remember a while ago I had a little break from Instagram because I got so stressed about my feed. It so wasn’t worth it and after people said “we like natural!”, “you don’t have to make it perfect”, it made me feel much better. It is more important to take just take normal photos that are high quality than get stressed about having “the perfect feed”. I did a post on how I edit my Instagram pictures which you can see here!
  • take good quality photos - I use an iPhone 6 so anything you can have is great! Try to maximise natural lighting in each picture. I don’t use any third-party apps for editing since I feel they dramatically reduce the quality of each photo but that is up to you. Here are some other tips for pictures!
  • be active in the studygram community - follow anyone you find inspiration. You may be lucky to get some follow backs. I try to check out any studygrams that follow me! Like and comment on photos that you like. I would recommend taking caution when commenting on photos, especially if you’re doing it mainly for getting recognition out of it. It can sometimes come across as ingenuine if you’re commenting on a million posts a day. But commenting and engaging with posts that you do actually like is great. I try to leave a few comments on posts that I particularly like each day!
  • use hashtags - this is a great way to promote your photos! Go with the most popular like #study #studygram #school #studies #studyinstagram. I will often hashtag what is in my photos, for example #muji or #bulletjournal. You could even make a hashtag for just your posts.
  • tag brands - this is another good way to get your posts noticed. If someone is checking out a brand’s Instagram, they may go through the tagged photos to use their products in action.
  • be relatable - I think this is super important. I’m always myself on Instagram. If you’ve watched my livestreams, you’ll know I seem to ramble on and on about random topics! I try to keep my entire Instagram genuine and real. I’m just a normal girl and I want people to see me that way! People love to connect with a real persona!
  • interact with your followers - this is so important and actually really fun! I love replying to comments, messaging with others and helping where I can! I feel so lucky to be able to interact with a whole load of different people each day. It is truly the most awesome thing of social media!
  • post regularly - this doesn’t necessarily mean every single day! I post once a day but even once every two or three is enough. Obviously, the more active you are, the quicker you’ll gain followers.

I hope this helps! I feel it is really important to remember that social media isn’t everything and you shouldn’t place so much emphasis on it. As I mentioned I got very worked up a while ago about it but now I’m very casual about it and try not to like anything get to me in that sense. It is so important to note that followers aren’t everything! They’re awesome to have but if you’re gaining slowly, don’t beat yourself up about it! We all started small! Again, I hope this has helped! xx

Butler Brigade is done. 

From left to right: 

Donnie (character from @kagrs’ story and Rodekil band) 
Nick (of coz)
Jack (no suits or formal wear party is gonna look right without him)
Peter ( kagrs’ first born lol) 

I’m just gonna leave this here lol. I don’t know how that smug appeared on Jack’s face but I don’t mind. Also sorry in advance for the cheap ass picture quality from my phone. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to my usual routine once everything is better. 

May the wind guide your wings!

I talk to so many people on Instagram about TV shows because I share all the ones I’m watching :’-) Otherwise, you can simply send something like:
    • Hey! I love your blog! I saw we were mutuals and wanted to see if you fancied chatting? :-)
    • Hi! I really loved your post on … I just wanted to let you know!Hello!
    • Thank you for following me! It’s cool that we’re mutuals. I thought I’d introduce myself! I’m …
    • Love your posts! Can’t believe you’re following me. I’m …

Hope this helps! x

(@dailymeloetta, @daily–marshadow, @dailystufful-salandit, @dailyshinycutiefly, @dailyleafeon, @dailymawile, @sableyedaily, @banettedaily) Omanyte: WHAT ARE YOU ALL DOING HERE!?
(Making this daily blog was the best thing I’ve done on Tumblr thus far. I got to see all these great drawers and artists, and it gave me an excuse to draw, though I wish I could draw better on a computer so outside forces like lighting and camera quality didn’t affect the outcome. Seriously, a light went out when I was about to take a picture. If you haven’t already, go follow these amazing guys/gals *no more assume my gender memes please, all other memes are allowed*. When it came to drawing in my opinion, leafeon was by far the hardest. How do you do this DAILY!?)

Oh man. So! For Gosho Aoyama’s 30 year career anniversary Shounen Sunday had all the artists draw a little tribute to the mystery mangaka and his IP’s and well it’s not secret that my dear love Birdmen by Tanabe Yellow is ALSO published in Sunday…

I cropped this from the collection page and am beyond desperate for a better quality look but I swear –this is gorgeous. I love Kaito in her style! and she’s also doing the creepy heavy ink shadows like with Takayama! And the background! She just had to slip in the flock at moonlight. One flies with wings of black, the other with wings of white.

MFMM S1 E9: Queen of the Flowers

LOVE the smiles!! (Forgive the picture quality, and I beg your patience.  I’m snapping photos from the TV using my phone while I binge-watch).  Perhaps someone has previously posted a better one that they could re-post? 

The costume Phryne wears in this final scene is one of my favorites.  I thought she looked particularly lovely in the lavender and gold.  I don’t recall seeing it in any other episodes??

Hannibal/Handmaid’s Tale crossover

I was watching The Handmaid’s Tale episode “The Other Side” today when I thought to myself, what a familiar looking cabin that is! 

(PS: sorry for the shitty quality, I had to use my phone to take the pictures)

  • Same floor lamp, check
  • Bookshelf by the front door, check
  • White grout between logs, check
  • Same chairs, check
  • Same balcony, check
  • (I’m just trying to convince myself here)

I haven’t posted a selfie in a while. But if you don’t follow me on my other social medias. You don’t know, I just got my new camera for my brother. He got me the Canon EOS Rebel T6. He got me everything I need to take pictures for blogging and filming my Youtube videos. I’m so thankful and overwhelmed by his gift. So I’m learning how for use it. So for now on you will see better quality pictures and videos (lol well until I learn how to film with it).


I hope everyone is doing well. Don’t forget to follow me on my Instagram at the_queen_bambee and my YouTube is Queen Bambee :)

I don't even watch LWA but after seeing your last post I can see why you tend to stick with lowkey small fandom ships/rarepairs

Just because certain shippers are acting badly doesn’t mean that LWA is a bad show. In fact, I’d still encourage you to watch it. It’s really good, and it’s just a feel-good show if you let yourself relax and enjoy the ride. Just…tread carefully around the community. Just a glance through the tag search will show you who the neutral parties are, and they tend to be good with content if you just wanna enjoy some good ol’ fanart or shitposting. 

If there’s any good left in the fandom from the ridiculousness, it’s the shitposting. 

As for the fics… well, that’s your own choice, but I honestly wouldn’t recommend them. This is just a personal preference on my end, since I’m used to consuming a certain level of quality when it comes to fics, and the ones out there for this fandom–here, AO3, FFnet–just don’t cut it. I don’t fancy myself as an amazing writer, but I know my own skill level enough to know I could write something far better than 99% of what’s up there right now. But I can’t, because I’m busy with other things, and I’d rather wait until the show is over so as to have a complete picture of everyone’s characterization. 

And Dia///nakko used to be a rarepair, but it’s not anymore, lol. I’ll still ship it, though a little less enthusiastically when I remember that my fellow shippers–certain shippers, to be more exact–are acting so childishly and ridiculous over a Japanese show made by a Japanese studio that is in no way even remotely resembling A Certain American TV Network and Certain American Screenwriters that these shippers are clearly projecting on.

Just random pictures.
Mainly testing the new plasma TV with custom settings. The blur was killing me and I figured out how to set it up, by removing the ‘reduce sharpness’ setting and some other advanced bits. It looks pretty good if not a little bit better if it wasn’t for some tiny details on the quality of the screen. At least, plasma quality is better than LCD as the plasma TV displays black colors way, way more accurate than my LCD.
The TV is mad huge, so it might take some time to get used to.

I hope you all had a lovely Friday, chumps.

((Alright! So I did receive 1 request for Morelos (my bitter son) and I decided to throw Edomex into the mix because they’re related and I love her design :3))

Morelos:
. Human name: Issac García
. He has the average mid skintone, brown hair, and brown eyes. A thing that sets him apart is his curl, a notable trademark that all his siblings have. He’s fairly thin, due to how the large climb in population has led to the state’s inability to feed itself, and he wears large shirts to hide how thin he is. He’s almost always seen with a poinsettia clipped on his shirt. This is because Morelos is said to be the native home of the flower.
He’s more reserved than his siblings and is normally overlooked. Mainly because his siblings are much louder and sociable while he prefers to stand at the side. However, he has quite the temper. He can be sweet one second but can be your worst nightmare the next. He can be very aggressive.
He’s fairly close to his siblings despite how much they tease him about his size (he’s smol.) He’s closest to Hidalgo as they are both the youngest of the family. He’s also close friends of Tlaxcala since they both get overlooked and ignored often, something they can bond over.

Edomex:
. Full name: Estado de México (State of Mexico) (Edomex is the abbreviation)
. Human name: Leticia Isel García
. She has a darker skin tone compared to her siblings but has the average hair and eye color. She’s very fashionable so she’s always looking her best. Another thing that sets her apart is her curl that represents her panhandle and the relationship between her family. Another thing that sets her apart is her dyed hair which is Mexican pink.
She is a kind hearted but sassy girl. Although she can be described as immature sometimes, she can actually be very serious when necessary. She’s also very protective of her family and will defend them if necessary. She’s basically a “do no harm but take no shit” person. She’s very sociable and friendly, too. Warning: Never call her a fresa, she hates it.
She’s very close to her family, especially to Morelos and Mexico City. She’ll normally be watching out for Morelos despite his protests against it. She’s also all ears so she’s close to the other states and willing to hear them out, except when it comes to soccer.

(( Goddamn. I drew these a long time ago and I keep procrastinating on posting them ;-;))
