tongari: Tony Leung and Tony Leung - Eagle Shooting Heroes (Default)
I had a day off which I intended to spend watching The Tatami Galaxy (四畳半神話大系) (as subbed by Funimation / animecrazy if you live outside of the US). I've only gone through two eps and they were delightfully weird and entertaining. Not sure how long the repeating plot device can sustain itself, but I thought the animation style was pretty unusual and very cute. Also I really like Akashi AND I LOVE OZU ALTHOUGH HE DOES INDEED LOOK LIKE A YOUKAI


But my plan was foiled because the night before I had a sad dream about Mitsunari so obviously most of my day off was blown drawing a comic about an SB3 stage, and taking liberties with Gyoubu. Like the Misogi film club president says, "why do you keep making these ridiculous things no one else understands? it's disgustingly masturbatory"

I took so long to type up this post that the Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes demo (English version of BSR3) is suddenly available on PSN! I couldn't not mention it now. It is a fun hack n' slash game with many delightful characters only very loosely based on real history, although you may feel like slapping some of them by the end of a story route. Please try it out!

That is all that was important, the rest of this post is just me being a nerd. To celebrate have some fanarts.

cue long ramble about oichi )

moving on to the guys, incl spoilers for aniki`s green route. Basically: ▲▽▼ )

Tomorrow is Hari Raya; a happy Eid to all who celebrate! In the spirit of forgiving and being forgiven, please forgive me all the stupidities I have perpetrated, and please be patient as I try to avoid making more. Happy holidays to the rest of everyone.

Hegemons always resent heaven, because only hell awaits us at the end of our path. - Guo Jia to Cao Cao

The Ravages of Time ((火鳳燎原) or as I like to call it, THREE KINGDOMS OF BADASS, is a Hong Kong comic based on the Romance of Three Kingdoms. It is full of (hundreds of) characters (spanning multiple, sprawling storylines) who can beat up entire armies, sometimes armed only with a hoe; pull spears out of their own bodies and wield them saying "thanks for the weapons", throw horses across the battlefield, eat their own eyes, crossdress super convincingly, etc.. Yet for all these oddities, Ravages remains IMHO the most complex, clever, engaging and unbelievably human Three Kingdoms interpretation you can find today.

Most importantly it has the best portrayal of Guo Jia ever. Cut for spoilers up to 318 and scary fanart )

PS. I had this post typed up last week, but before I posted it a lot of very kind and well-meaning people crashed my webhost (in the best of all possible ways; thank you for your many kind words), placing me in a state of shock, disbelief, and extreme mortification. I wanted to hide under my bed all day, except there was a lot of stuff under it already so I couldn't. But so far all seems good! No one has emailed me angrily to complain, also more pressingly I have not had to explain Sengoku Basara and/or ojisans to any RL friends whom I know follow Mr Gaiman's twitter. The feeling of relief is pretty intense. Although I will work hard to draw some proper Sandman fanart by way of apology

PPS. Speaking of Sengoku Basara, "Ishida Mitsunari" is a front page pixiv tag! I invite everyone to celebrate by mentally picturing our beloved ▽-kun as a belligerent kemonomimi with fox ears and huge fluffy tail. In fact why isn't this his alt costume.

PPPS. Okay I am a huge nerd I found the meaning of Mitsunari's crest and am sobbing. DOES HE NOT UNDERSTAND THIS IN BASARA OR SOMETHING

Actually I am 100% sure someone else has not only done a Sandman/Inception crossover but dunnit far more eloquently (I got tired after page 4, re-read it and said WAIT WHAT IS THIS EVEN ABOUT)

inception/sandman: cities of sand. cut for spoilers for Inception (well.. everything) and Sandman books 9 and 10 (although you have no excuse for not reading them) )
