I love how lanky Azzy looks. He seems like the type of dude who you could just sit down and chill out with while either watching a show or playing a video game or just talk about the university, life and all of existence. I like him. He is also a giant lanky snowball which helps.

How realistic is rolling out of the way in fight scenes like you see in video games such as dark soul or witcher?
It’s not, for the same reason you don’t use it against human foes in The Witcher 3; the recovery time is too long, leaving the person doing the dodge vulnerable to follow up strikes. Something that is very easy for an attacker who is pressing their opponent.
It will also prove quickly exhausting. Ironically, one thing Dark Souls does very well is hammer home how tiring combat is. A character who goes in with a frenzied assault will tire themselves out quickly. Similarly, bouncing around like an acrobat will leave them exhausted and vulnerable.
I was going to say something about how stamina regenerates at an unreasonable rate in Dark Souls until I realized I was thinking of Dark Souls II′s stamina regeneration, which scaled with the character’s equip burden (a stat that tracked how heavy their gear was). (Incidentally, Bloodborne uses this same system even though equip burden is a hidden stat. I don’t think Dark Souls uses that, and I can’t remember if it was the case in Dark Souls III.) This isn’t a bad abstraction for the effect heavy gear can have on a fighter. In real combat, a heavily armored fighter will tire out, and potentially overheat, much faster than one in lighter gear.
It’s also worth remembering that with The Witcher 3, there’s actually two different dodges. The dodge roll which sends Geralt leaping out of the way, and a short range dodge with a fast recovery. It won’t get out of the way of a monster’s charge, but can be useful against human foes. These kinds of quick step evasions do have application in the real world. Being able to bounce out of reach of an opponent’s strike, and then come back in is a useful tactic, and usually worth the energy. Unfortunately, it also has some of the same issues as the dodge roll, an opponent who is pressing can continue to do so, forcing the defending combatant to continue falling back, but it can still prove useful in the right circumstances.
It’s probably worth mentioning, with The Witcher 3, CD Projekt Red was basing Geralt’s sword combat on a specific HEMA variant, and recording actual practitioners for the motion capture. It’s not one I’m familiar with, so I don’t know how authentic what you see in game is to the actual style. If, what you’ve seen there appeals to what you want for a character, I would strongly recommend taking a closer look at what the developers were pulling from, and looking around for any making of documentaries they produced.
I’ll start off with the worst. I was tied between Jodi and Jules because they are both just awkward puppies. But then I remembered Jules’ “ghetto” dancing and I thought, you know… maaaaybe she could find a way to work it a bit. Jodi on the other hand is just silly. Look at this Chance. Just look
What a silly little cupcake. She has her really proper and uptight moments and every time I think of her giving a lap dance, I just giggle. I’m not saying it would be awful, I just think it wouldn’t work.
(I was also thinking of Elizabeth but then I thought of all the black and the corset and the hair and then my mind said Dominatrix!Elizabeth and I just had to stop. She would make something happen. And we wouldn’t be ready).
Now for the best!
Of course my initial thought was Kate. Pretty much anything that is really sexy regarding any of Katie’s characters my mind is stuck on her.
But then I remembered pretty much everything about Kate screams Daddy.
Because reasons! Kate would be on the… receiving end. Every time. She would give good ones. But prefers not to. So then on to my choice for the best
The eyes. The lip bite. The smolder. The body language. The flirtatious attitude. The loose hair! Pretty sure when she’s comfortable with someonea girlKara. Her lap dances would pretty much kill anyone.
That is my decision. Now let me live and let us discuss.
A/N: Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking this story so well, it really warms my heart and I’m so grateful. I really hope this lives up to your expectations, like I’m actually dead nervous you won’t like it. I would love feedback on it, it would make my day. Also just need to say a massive thank you to my precious twinny @illuminateshawn, who’s always there to read tiny pieces and give me feedback. You are so precious to me, thank you!

You bit your lip as you waited for a response from Shawn. A minute passed by, then two, then three, four, five….
Half an hour later and then you just stopped counting after that.
If you had to correlate the Seven Deadly Sins and the Seven Heavenly Virtues with the Flash Protagonists, how would you do it? (And notice that it's /protagonists/ cause I know that Eobard would be perfect for Gluttony)
Barry Allen: Avarice (Greed); Kindness
It should come as no surprise that our favorite time-traveler’s weakness is Avarice or Greed.
Given his heart-of-gold, it should also come as no surprise that Barry’s Kindness is his greatest strength.
Iris West: Envy; Diligence
Iris herself acknowledges her desire to be a speedster and her dislike of being sidelined, as well as on-off pining after Barry; Envy is her weak point.
However, Iris doesn’t sit back and wait for life to happen; her Diligence enables her to combat Envy and be a hero.
Cisco Ramon: Gluttony; Abstinence
The only member of the list to be paired with polar opposites, Cisco’s weakness and strength are at war: Gluttony rules Reverb and Flashpoint Cisco, while Abstinence characterizes Our Cisco.
However, even Reverb sought help, and as a successful businessman Flashpoint Cisco would have required some restraint, and occasionally Our Cisco falls prey to Gluttony.
Caitlin Snow: Wrath; Liberality
Her alter ego is Killer Frost; need I say more on the Wrath-like quality of Caitlin’s nature?
Resisting that personality is Liberality, or Generosity; as a doctor, Caitlin’s primary role is to help others.
Wally West: Lust; Humility
Wally is our Icarus who fell in love with the Speed Force, and his Lust drove him to make irrational and ultimately disastrous decisions.
Following these experiences and speaking to his core, Wally’s Humility shone.
Jesse Quick: Pride; Chastity
She majored in five subjects and resists being constrained to Harry’s safety precautions after being freed from Zoom, despite Harry’s insistence; Pride is the Jesse’s chip in the armor.
Tempering her Pride, Jesse leans her shoulder into Chastity, neither overreaching nor underusing her Speed, finding a happier medium than Barry or Wally.
Julian Albert: Sloth; Patience
Julian’s Sloth is largely due to his reluctance to work with Barry, compromising his results for the sake of a grudge. He’s slower than he could be.
But Patience is on Julian’s side: he can afford to play a long-term game, determining which team to side with and what strategies will play out with the greatest reward.
I’m posting this for the record, and for my feelings. ^_^ My Japanese level is not that high so I admit that I didn’t fully understand everything they said. Plus I only wrote what I remember, with a bias on my beloved top 4 seiyuu. ^_^
This is the first-ever seiyuu event I have attended. I only came to Japan last year, but did not get to attend any last year. I love Bungou Stray Dogs in itself; with the addition of the seiyuus I really fell into this fandom hard. My top 4 seiyuus are here: Miyano Mamoru, Kamiya Hiroshi, Hosoya Yoshimasa, and Taniyama Kishou. So when the event was announced with these 4 present, I immediately ordered the DVD (where the lottery ticket for the event was enclosed; thank God I won!!).
文豪ストレイドッグス 迷ヰ犬達ノ宴 其ノ弐
The event started with a VTR of chibi characters featuring John and the members of the Armed Detective Agency. John wants to join the event since he’s free as the Guild is already defunct. Dazai causes ruckus and all.
Screen mode then appeared performing “Reason Living.” I really like the lyrics of this song because it’s basically about the stray dogs T.T
The VTR then introduced the anime cast with their respective seiyuus who were in the event. Important note: loudest fan screams for our beloved Chuuya
Uemura Yuuto - Nakajima Atsushi
Mamo - Dazai Osamu
Hosoyan - Kunikida Doppo
Kamiyan - Edogawa Ranpo
Toyonaga Toshiyuki - Tanizaki Junichiro
Ono Kenshou - Akutagawa Ryunosuke
Kiiyan - Nakahara Chuuya
Kawanishi Kengo - John
They did the usual introductory greetings with Uemura opening with, “Yokohama he youkoso” (Welcome to Yokohama).
Mamo, being Dazai, joked that he’s looking for a beautiful woman who can commit suicide with him to which the crowd excitedly responded to. (Suddenly everyone wanted to commit suicide)
Toyonaga, as expected of Tanizaki, was talking all about Naomi. Kenshou shouted “Yatsugare wa?” then pointed the mic to the audience, but got no response. :D He said people were supposed to reply, “Akutagawa.” And so he repeated then we gladly responded. Kiiyan, imitating Kenshou shouted, “Yogerecchimatta” which got a loud “kanashimi ni” from the audience. (Oh I can really feel how much Chuuya is loved
Scenes, personally chosen by the anime/manga staff, were then played on the screen followed by comments from the cast.
*Armed Detective Agency scene: Kyouka welcome party (Aw. This is really a heart-warming scene for the last episode because of everything they’ve all been through)
The cast commented, “Aw..Kawaii.”
With regards to the scene where Kunikida scolds Atsushi and Kyouka, Hosoyan shared that most of the lines were just adlib. It happens quite often during recording where for instance, there are only three lines in the script then he has to improvise by himself what follows. It was quite a task as the lines had to be interesting but it made him really do his best. (Ow Hosoyan, I’m so proud of you for being interesting
“Ah so this is what happens when these 3 get together” – thought Kiiyan
*Soukoku vs Lovecraft scene - from “Yacchimae, Chuuya” (Finish him off, Chuuya) to “Warui yatsu no teki sa” (the bad guys’ enemies)
Ok of all the anime aired in 2016, this is my favorite anime episode of 2016. I’m just so happy that I got to watch it together with this beloved people. T.T
Mamo was laughing at Dazai’s “Sono tsumori datta no kedo omoshirokute miteta” (That was my plan but it was interesting so I watched)
Kishou tells Mamo, “Chanto okuritodokero yo, aibou” (Send me off properly, partner)
Omg my feelings. Mamo and Kiiyan as Dazai and Chuuya being “sweet” calling each other aibou (partner) T.T They talked about how complicated Dazai and Chuuya’s relationship is. Comparing it to how Dazai teases Kunikida just for the fun of it, but with Chuuya it’s not just like that. They really just can’t stand each other? Lol. My soukoku feelings.
*Shin soukoku vs Fitzgerald scene
Audience and cast laughs at the sight of Atsushi being “dead” when he was thrown off Moby Dick with his eyes turned all white.
Then ofc, everyone likes the “JINKOOOOO” scene when Akutagawa yelled and saved him. Uemura comments how this is such an intense scene plus the music scoring does well to complement the scene. Kenshou shares how he wanted to have the “JINKOOOOO” yell taken/recorded a number of times to get the best cut. Kamiyan was asked for a comment and as Ranpo, he says that he didn’t really have any battle scenes. So he could only watch how the others act on the scene and comments, “Ah, taihen sou da na” (Ah, must be tough for them”)
*Guild scene: first appearance where they left the Mafia and Agency members “dead” in one attack.
Again everyone laughs seeing Atsushi’s eyes all-white again. Someone (I forgot who sorry) commented that this protagonist just dies quite often. :D Mamo imitates Lovecraft’s voice, “nemui” (feeling sleepy) and other lines which he just went on doing for the rest of the night (and he did a great job ofc, I can almost believe he’s the one who voiced him lol)
The cast leaves the stage. While the next set is being prepared, VTR plays with chosen scenes from the Kuro no Jidai (Dark Era). Ango’s seiyuu, Fukuyama Jun appears on video to comment. (I’m sorry Junjun spoke really fast; I had a tough time understanding what he was saying at all) What I remember is that he wished people should at least be kinder towards Ango. ^_^ One scene was where Odasaku, Dazai, and Ango gathered for the last time to drink in the bar, where Ango wished that sometime in the future, when their lives get better and peaceful, the 3 of them can get together once again for a drink - to which Odasaku interrupted and didn’t let him finish his sentence.
Miki Shinichiro, seiyuu of Mimic’s leader, also gives a video comment on his scene vs Akutagawa, and vs Odasaku.
Luck Life live came in next with “Namae wo yobu yo” and “Kaze ga fuku machi.” Oh I really, really love the last one. You know the feels you get every week when the instrumental intro of the Kaze ga fuku machi starts to play in the episode’s ending?? T.T
Vocalist PON shares how he thought carefully on writing the lyrics, considering the characters’ feelings and experiences like how many things have happened, the cherishing of the important things, and the existence of important “nakama” (comrades) around you.
The seiyuu cast went back onstage to play a game called, “Busou senta shiken” (Agency examination). Basically they have to answer the emcee’s questions about BSD. Besides the correct answer, points will also be given to those who give answers deemed interesting aka “omoshiroi pointo.” School desks, chairs, sketchpads, and pens were prepared and set up. While everyone behaved and took their seats properly, Mamo proceeds to lie down and strike a pose on top of the desk while ofc Kiiyan also does his own. (these two!!! :D)
When they took their seat, Mamo began sketching something on his pad, even without any question from the emcee yet. Kiiyan does the same thing. (someone please stop these two from being dorks!! :D)
After finishing, they showed their sketches which turned out to be Toyonaga’s portrait. Mamo won what suddenly turned out to be a “contest”, as Toshi imitated his face on Mamo’s masterpiece. (Toshi then used this as his Twitter icon after!)
Question:How many times did Akutagawa said the word “jinko” from eps 17-24 (if i remember the ep coverage right)
Uemura and Kenshou answers more than 10 times, more than the other cast’s answers. So the VTR played and we started counting. The answer turned out to be 9 times. (Personally I thought it was more tho) No one got the right answer! Kamiyan answered 6, then quickly turned his answer upside down to make it appear as 9 lol. He got the omoshiroi points as a result. Hosoyan and Toshi got points for getting close to 9, answering 8 and 10 respectively.
Next: Draw the doll that Q carries with her.
Hosoyan’s was shown first which turned out to be the typical Japanese girl doll. (ok I did not expect that from you Hosoyan XD)
Mamo was next which showed Koitsu, you know, his beautiful character doodle.
Kamiyan, as expected of him, drew a cat.
Toshi drew Mamo’s portrait.
Ok we’re not getting serious answers here. Kiiyan worried about the trend saying that the order of showing the answers was wrong because his would then seem boring. (Ok now I did not expect that from you Kiiyan XD) Kiiyan and Kenshou showed theirs at the same time. They did draw what the doll seems to be like getting an “Oohh” reaction from the crowd.
In the end Uemura’s turned out to be the most similar. The others got omoshiroi points tho lol.
And wait, an important shocking revelation: Mamo voiced the doll, as in that crazy laughter. He said it himself but because it’s Mamo I’m not sure whether he’s joking or not XD I was waiting for him to say, “Uso da kedo” (It’s a lie, though) as in Dazai, but he didn’t so maybe it’s true. He can do anything ok :3
Question: Fill in the blank. One word from Chuuya’s chant in awakening “Corruption.” “Nanji, inutsunaru ____ no kyoyou yo. Aratamete ware wo mezamasukoto nakare.“
Ofc Kiiyan knows the answer but ofc he did not give it away. I don’t know if that’s really the case but nobody seemed to know the right answer. They just answered random words. Kiiyan answered, "バラス” (barasu). Mamo gave a long random group of words (idk if i just didn’t understand the meaning or they had no meaning at all XD) Kiiyan, as Chuuya, performed the chant, using his and Mamo’s answer lololol. Kamiyan answered Miya-no; Toshi answered O-no. Kiiyan did not want to chant with their answers lol. Meanwhile Hosoyan looked seriously troubled thinking of an answer (maybe it was hard to think of smth interesting this time lol)
In the end no one got it, which is actually “oujoku” (Corruption)
Now this is one of the best parts of the event: Kiiyan did the chant. Like OMG I’m crying I heard him voice Chuuya LIVE awakening Corruption. All my feelings T.T I just want to mention that of all the characters that Kiiyan has voiced, Chuuya is my favorite T.T And I really really love his voice as Chuuya. And I heard it live. Ok I’m not okay T.T
Last, draw the pattern of the tail of Poe’s pet raccoon.
Toshi drew the whole raccoon nicely (for real) but the tail was only partly shown (even tho that was the point of the question!) Kiiyan just drew a circle lol (Kiiyan it’s a raccoon, not a bunny ok). Kamiyan drew two long tails (why two Kamiyan why) Again Hosoyan was seriously drawing his, he even changed his first answer. When done, he was trying to get the emcee’s attention for him to show his answer by hesitantly raising his hand; but the emcee was busy looking at others’. So he just gave up and kept silent. (Oh precious Hosoyan baby let me protect you from this cruel world) Everyone has shown their answers except Hosoyan. The emcee (really forgetting or bullying? Hosoyan) was about to announce the correct answer, but the audience shouted “Hosoyan!” (I shouted really loud you cruel emcee), and so his answer was shown. In the end he got the correct answer!! Yey! Alongside Toshi tho.
The results came out: Winner - Hosoyan!! 42.5/100 Hosoyan was surprised himself, saying he had no idea how when he only got the last one right. Turns out the omoshiroi points also helped. Mamo commented on how low the highest score was lol. Hosoyan was awarded a bottle of wine and a certificate. Oh how happy Chuuya would’ve been if he had won. Anyways Hosoyan also likes wine. Kiiyan commented that it was nice that Hosoyan won the certificate which has “合格” (goukaku, success/eligibility) written on it as opposed to being called Ningen 失格 (shikkaku, ineligibility) earlier :3
The second part concludes. Then a VTR of the Kuro no Jidai was shown again. This time Suwabe Junichi, Oda Sakunosuke’s seiyuu, appears. He commented on how good the anime graphics were esp in the fight scene of Odasaku and the Mimic leader.
He wanted Odasaku to have stayed more (like we all do) but understands that the present Dazai would not have been who he is if not for what happened to Odasaku, which we also understand (but still this hurts right :() Odasaku was a character that really left a great impression and he was happy to have been able to play the character even just for a short time.
It’s finally GRANRODEO’s live with “Trash Candy.” The crowd went wild but my world stopped spinning as I just stood there staring at Kiiyan. I was savoring the moment as I finally heard the most beautiful singing voice in the planet live. I was thinking how blessed I am for being able to to see Kiiyan as a seiyuu, and as GR’s vocalist, in one event. And oh, it was Val-san’s last performance with GR. How ironic as it was just my first. :(
I was not prepared for this but after GR, the emcee announced that it was already time to say goodbye. The cast and the bands appeared onstage for the last time, saying their words of farewell.
Kiiyan was glad to be able to take part as a seiyuu and as GR’s vocalist in this anime. Screen mode’s vocalist, Hayashi Yuu, likewise also took part as a seiyuu (Tachihara’s). Luck life went on to promote their upcoming live :3. Hosoyan shared how acting in BSD has challenged him to do his best more. Kamiyan wanted to keep doing Ranpo.
Uemura was ofc the last one to speak, and this kid really did say such heart-warming thanks and message. This is his first main protagonist role, and he’s being surrounded by such senpai-s. Mamo also shared that when the cast was announced, the director told him, “Uemura wo tanomu” (I’m leaving Uemura under your care). He felt so much of being a senpai, reflecting how far he has come right now. He has also witnessed how the two, Uemura and Kenshou (Atsushi and Akutagawa alike) has grown well throughout their experience in this anime.
It was goodbye and all but two letters addressed to Uemura and Mamo arrived. The letters were in black-colored paper, with their names written on it. Mamo commented that he doesn’t like to receive such letters and thought that he had heard such a thing before XD (Hello Yagami Light)
Turns out they contain special announcements. Uemura announced that a stage play adaptation has been decided, which received a great response from the crowd.
Last is Mamo’s as the screen projected the movie poster. And there was nothing but loud cheers. IT’S A MOVIE. And it’s a new story. And most importantly, it’s SOUKOKU. Ok let me process that. Let me cry. T.T Kiiyan imitates Chuuya’s pose in the poster. They then apologized to Uemura and Kenshou for “overtaking” their kouhai-s when just a while ago they were talking all about them lol.
Now it’s really time to go. 3 Uemura led everyone as he shouted “Bunsto” to which everyone, audience and cast, responded with an overwhelming, “DAISUKI!!” then the confetti fell from above. Whoa. Such a beautiful sight
Lastly, VTR appears with chibi Dazai asking the audience who wants to commit suicide with him on the way home. Ok everyone volunteers. Atsushi, Akutagawa, and Chuuya appears stopping Dazai from his attempt. Atsushi was ordered by Kunikida to go home with Dazai to prevent Dazai from causing harm. Akutagawa eagerly volunteers to go home with his senpai but got rejected (cruel Dazai lol) Chuuya was being tsundere but prevents Dazai from doing anything else. Ok this is Dazai’s harem. That’s how it is but then again, Dazai failed to find a beautiful woman willing to commit suicide with him. ^_^
Photos and screenshots from Official accounts (Twitter/Blog):
And in celebration of the movie project and 200k++ Twitter followers, they gave us these precious present:
This post got longer than I thought. And forgive my inconsistent grammar; I just kept on writing with little proofreading. ;)
Anyway, this is such a happy event. I’m forever grateful for this opportunity and I’m glad that this is my first seiyuu event ever. Looking forward to more and more events in the near future!!!!!!!!!! ^_^
My middle school used to be a high achool so they had locker rooms that were used for storage and one winter i didnt bring a jacket to school so the principal took me in there and they legit had a fucking mountain of jackets and sweaters left behind by kids over the years.It pretty much reached the ceiling Im not kidding.And ofc my ass picks the fluffiest white jacket that makes me look like a giant marshmallow. It was great.
NO SEX BEFORE BREAKFAST! (Newt Scamander x Reader)
Word Count: 828 (HOLY SHIZ THIS IS SHORT)
Warnings: Kissing? Does that count?
A/N: LET’S JUST IMAGINE THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS MORNING BREATH, OK?
Newt woke up with something soft brushing against his face and a warm body pressed against him. He kept his eyes closed as he revelled in your touch and pulled you closer against him, making you squeal in surprise.
“Good morning.” You said, laughing softly. Newt just smiled and sighed deeply. “Are you not planning to open your eyes today, Mr. Scamander?”
“I think I need a moment, Miss Y/L/N.” He responded. “You can go back to doing what you were doing.” He mumbled, making you laugh again.
“Ok, you interrupted me anyway.” You said, your light touches gracing his face again. He let you do whatever you were doing for a while before asking what you were actually doing. “I’m counting your freckles.” You answered. An amused smile pulled at his lips and he opened his eyes to find you lying in front of him, brows furrowed in concentration.
