ANTI-SAN VALENTIN

     No soy la primera que lo dice: El Día De Los Enamorados es pura mentira. Deberíamos celebrar el amor todo el tiempo, pero en vez nos limitamos a un día en el año de comprar tarjetas en Walgreens y sentarnos en restaurante llenos de otros imbéciles a tratar de pasarla bien. Estoy convencida que el Día De Los Enamorados es para gente que nunca sale de la casa, que nunca compra flores y que nunca habla de amor. Es un día en el que las “parejas perfectas” del mundo muestran su superioridad sobre nosotros los pobres solteros. Hoy las mujeres enparejadas celebran el triunfo de haber atrapado a algún tonto. Nos miran con ojos de pena que dicen “No te preocupes que pronto te llegará…” Yo no estoy preocupada señora, mañana mientras tú estás lavando calzoncillos, yo estaré en la playa con una cerveza. 

    Los que piensan que el 14 de febrero es “divino y romántico” obviamente nunca se han quedado en la cama riendo todo el día, ni mucho menos caminado de la mano por las calles de Paris. A esa gente no le han dedicado una canción, no escuchan los Beatles y jamás se han ido de road trip, ni han desayunado con su pareja por skype.

     Además de ser un falso retrato del romance, El Día De Los Enamorados puede ser traumatizante. Hay mujeres convencidas de que el papi de la oficina hoy por fin las invitará a salir. Hay salones de escuela elemental donde todas las nenas lindas recibieron tarjetas de San Valentín y las despeinadas, nerds, awkward se quedaron sin nada. Es más, les voy a hacer una historia vergonzosa…Una vez en la escuela me llegó un regalo con una nota de un admirador secreto. Yo no era la nena popular que tenía a los chicos locos, pero como toda niña tonta, soñaba con levantarme al más cool. Me pasé ese 14 de febrero mirándolos a todos, maquinando, fijándome a ver quien me echaba el ojo, quien me hablaba, tratando de decifrar la identidad de mi admirador. Estaba feliz, llena de ilusión, dándole las gracias a cupido por haberse acordado de mí. ¡Por fin tendría novio! Esa tarde en la casa, mi mamá me preguntó si me había gustado el regalo y el mundo se me derrumbó. Fue ella mi “secret admirer”. No habría boda, ni luna de miel, ni besos detrás de los casilleros. (Gracias mami, love you.) 

     Este San Valentín estoy soltera (y feliz) y tengo mucho trabajo. Hoy un día normal que no amerita mensajes de texto con felicitaciones ni llamadas a toda la gente que quiero. No voy a comer chocolates (allá ustedes que van a engordar como 10 libras hoy en dulces solamente) ni a sentir presión de inventar algún plan “especial” porque la sociedad me dice que tengo que hacerlo. No siento emoción, ni alegría, ni odio contra los hombres, ni solidaridad con las otras solteras. No siento nada, excepto un poco de hambre y dolor de cabeza. Feliz día de San Valentín. 

Osomatsu-san Season 2 Stream!

hey guys !!! as you all know, there is ONE MORE DAY until season 2 arrives !! so in honor of that, i will be streaming the new episodes EVERY MONDAY for season 2 !!!

since i have crunchyroll, i will be streaming from that site on twitch. so let’s get into the times:

season 2 will be airing in japan at 1:35 am on october 3rd, so for people who live in the EST timezone, that time is 12:35 pm on monday, october 2nd.

crunchyroll will be posting the episodes every monday at 10:35 am PDT, so for the EST timezone, that is 1:35 pm.

crunchyroll will be airing the episodes 1 hour after the show is aired in japan, but since i have classes at 2, i will sadly not be able to stream it the same time crunchyroll posts it :”(

BUT !!!! that doesn’t mean that i still can’t stream it ! SO every monday i will be opening up the stream at 6 PM EST for people to join, and then begin playing the episode at 6:35 PM.

the link to my streaming room: https://www.twitch.tv/sofiakkuma so any amount of people can join!

of course if you’re going to use sites such as kissanime, they might have the episodes up before my stream, BUT i always find it more fun to watch the episodes for the first time with other people, so the choice is yours.

i’m excited to see you all at my stream !!! let’s enjoy season 2 !!!!

These are some scans from the small book that comes with the Soul Eater Special Social Studies Field Trip drama CD.
This is volume 1 and the only volume that came out. The drama CD’s that come with the gangan magazine are from a different set. The book has a character introduction and these 9 pages, which are connected to the story of the drama cd, but with a slightly different dialogue and order and only cover a small part of the story. The rest of the book has all the dialogue from the cd written down.

Translation of the pages:

chime: KILL KO-N KA-N KO-N  KILL KO-N KA-N KO-N
(in Japan a school chime’s sound is described as ‘kin kon kan kon’)

Shinigami-sama: “Chuss, uss, uii~~ss, hello, hello, oii–ss!! Good wo~~rk ♪
(this greeting does not make much sense, think of it as “howdy howdy howdy”) The results of this years special social studies field trip from each group of students sure is something to look forward to, right~~”

Sid: “It is!!”

Maka: “Hn?!”

Black☆Star: “Oh?!”

Maka: “It’s here ♪”

Soul: “Ohhh!! That’s an impressive airplane, actually!”

- Owl tourist guide and stewardess - Sofia -

Sofia: “Attention please ♪
The plane on the right of my hand is the airplane you will soon be boarding~~”

Everyone: “Ooh!!”

Sofia: “And on the left of my hand is, will you believe it, Shibusen~!”

Maka: “…”

Soul: “Yeah… We know that…”

Stein: “Well then, shall we go!! Everyone make sure to greet Shinigami-sama.”

Everyone: “Yes!!
We’ll be going~!!”

Shinigami: “No need to worry about bringing souvenirs at all because I will be totally expecting them so I’m counting on you~~♪”

Sid: “Everyone has gone, eh”

- France - Flower capital Paris -

Spirit: “IT’S PARIS!! BABY!!”      
“IT’S PARIS!! BABY!!”

Maka: “!! Why is papa here!?”

Blair: “Nyahaha♪”

Maka: “Blair, you, too!!”

- Inside of Paris - Louvre Museum -

Patti: “Kyahaha♪”
“Look, this old man is naked! He’s a perverted bastard!! My stomach hurts~♪ Kyahaha♪”

- David Statue - *in real life the David Statue is not displayed in the Louvre Museum. The real one is displayed in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence in Italy. There is also a copy of the statue at Florence’s town hall.

Liz: “…”

Black☆Star: “Hey!! Why are the family precepts of the great me not displayed here!! I don’t care about art… I really don’t give a shit.”

Tsubaki: “Don’t you think that’s rude to Sofia-san who is so kind to give us a tour!”

Sofia: “Then what do you think about this? There is a special place. The spear that the god of the ocean - Poseidon - used, is still being preserved there.

Maka: “EEH!”

Sofia: “Are you interested?”

Soul: “…”

Sofia: “Please watch your step.”

Kid: “Mmph… it smells like mold in here…”

Liz: “It’s kinda eerie, too…”

Soul: “The god’s spear is displayed in a place like this?”

Maka: “Hop”

Sofia: “Since Poseidon is the god of the sea, the display room is built to fit the image of a sea floor.”

- Waves: SPLAAAASHH -

Maka: “Wo~~w… So bi~~g…”

Kid: ‘”Hm! It’s quite an impressive spear.”

Black☆Star: “You think so? It’s just a big fork.”

Soul: “It’s not really what I was expecting. Let’s just write a report and get this over with.”

Liz: “You’re right. We’re in Paris. You guys wanna go play!?”

“‘EY!! WAIT A SECOND!! YOU JUST CAME HERE, YOU BETTER STAY A BIT LONGER!!”

Maka: “Iih!?”

Soul: “Who is it!?”

???: YO♪

Maka: “Woa…”

???: “What’s with that [Whoa].  It’s me! Matasaburou!!”

- Never leaving the side of the god of the sea, Poseidon —-,

Maka: “Eh….e~~~r… What kind of creature is that? Pre*ator?” (predator)

Soul: “He wears diving glasses, a wet suit and holds a spear… Bet he’s an illegal or something?”

- supporting his authority - the spear - Matasaburou… what is its strenght!? -

Witch: ”Ohohohoo o-ho-ho-ho”

- and the witch making her move, performing her sinister plan–…!!

Witch: “I’ll boil all of them in this huge pan.”

Soul: “Hey Maka, don’t you think something’s strange?”

Maka: “Black☆Star, Kid and the others are gone!?”

- the students disappearing with every second, all of a sudden…

Matasaburou: “I told you… I’m not an illegal!!”

- Now stand up… That strenght will even shake the heavens!?”

Maka: “What!? This soul response is from a witch!!?”

Blair: “I can feel a strong magic down here!!”

- Will the two people and animal be able to stop the witch’s plan? With the French castle as the battleground, the fight will begin—-!!!

Maka: “Kya~~~~~! What is thiiiis!! Fucking gross!!”

- Get control of this power of a god’s level!!

(I was thinking about translating the whole drama cd here but if I do that this post will become as long as the Great Wall of China. So I keep this to the translation of above comic pages only.)
