[Lyrics] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st ED – My wish My love [Tamura Yukari]

my-wish-my-love-single

Following up on more Nanoha Movie goodness I also translated its ending theme song. Basically if we assume the song is from Nanoha’s perspective this time since it’s sung by her seiyuu then it’s about how Nanoha can’t communicate her feelings to Fate properly through words and instead uses a bouquet of flowers in place …

nanoha-fate-family

Exactly two years ago I posted “my ideal family” if it were to consist of anime, manga and game characters. Basically the idea came to me when I stumbled on an amazing thread randomly in which people would post a list of characters to form a family. Think of Kyouran Kazoku Nikki and that’s pretty …

dengeki-gs-fes-dx-5-angel-beats

Yesterday I came back to school and waiting for me at the house was a package containing a copy of Dengeki G’s Festival! DELUXE Vol.5, the Key special issue, and my Cospa Hirasawa Yui shirt. Since I can only talk so much about a t-shirt I’ll focus on the magazine only. The reason I decided …

umineko-5-everyone

For some reason I spent yesterday in 07th Expansion Mode and ended up watching the first two episodes of Ookami Kakushi. From the very start I couldn’t help but get my tablet ready to take down notes as per usual for mystery-solving purposes and before I knew I had enough to make a post. In …

Playing With My New Intuos4 Tablet

Intuos4 Large versus Intuos3 4 x 6

Earlier today I finally got my Christmas/birthday gift in the mail, my Wacom Intuos4 Large which I ordered from Amazon. I’ve wanted a new larger tablet for a while and that urge only got stronger when the new Intuos line was released early last year. The high price of the tablet had put me off …

[Lyrics] Tales of Graces Theme Song Mamoritai ~White Wishes~ [BoA]

tales-of-graces-theme-cover

I’m not particularly a fan of BoA at all but I do like Tales games so I decided to do this song. Unlike past songs I’ve done Mamoritai has an official English version so I posted that AND my translation of the original Japanese version. The two versions are quite different so be sure to …
