The “Return of the Comeback” (Where did I hear that again?)

Heya guys. I’ve been doing a lot of food trips recently that I’m thinking of renaming this blog into: thecarlessfoodie. Hoho. It’s quite hard commuting to joints you want to try but the experience definitely becomes worth it once you’ve tasted the food.

Actually, I also need to add the cameraless-foodie to the title since my camera’s batteries are acting up (4 AA Eneloops yo). 

I wanna try Taft Avenue’s Zark’s very soon. Hopefully, I’ll get to post it.

 

‘Til my next entry, I guess. 😀

Viewfinder has been licensed!

It’s what we Yamane Ayano fans have all been waiting for, the Finder Series or Viewfinder finally has an English license again!>_< June Manga has officially announced the fact in their website.  Come Summer 2010 *US summer, not Philippine time*, we can finally read the English tankoubon version!

But do you see a ‘yay’ from me? Nope, not really.

With June getting the title instead of Kitty Media or 801 Media, we can expect that the English version will have *lots* of them blurry boxes/faded images. Many YA fans have already expressed their concern regarding the censorship of this manga. A poll is currently being done in the Yamane Ayano LJ community meant to be sent to June to express this concern.

My yaoi manga collection consists mostly of June titles so I KNOW for a fact that June does censor some *steamy* parts. Now, how the heck can I enjoy Viewfinder with that? To Viewfinder readers, we all know that the manga has lots of those explicit scenes. Heck, the first chapter alone has a whole lot of ’em: bondage, sadism, rape, you name it.O_O

Why JUNE anyway, when June and 801 Media are owned by the same company, Digital Manga Publishing??

*EDIT* Something that makes me happy at least: (I literally jumped for joy when I read this.)

Quoted from Sunflower1343, a moderator in the YA LJ and one who has direct communication with sensei.

“They will be publishing *new* versions of these, in B6 size (that’s Japanese manga-sized). Yay again!!! They’re to release volumes 1-3 (!) by yaoi-con this October, then vol 4 sometime after that, and subsequent volumes later. One thing to note is that we understand that the print run on these volumes is small compared to those in other countries so I suggest buying them right away, or there may be a supply issue akin to those of other popular DMP manga. It would seem foolish to me to let them go out of print, but hey, I’m not a manga publisher so what do I know?”

XDXD OH-EM-GEE. Three volumes in one go? My wallet may bleed but my heart will cry tears of happiness.

And yes, to make a long story short, even if there will be censorship, I will still buy the Finder Series when it comes out. But I still truly wish there won’t be that many. June releasing this in B6 format means that they are willing to make changes for Yamane-sensei. *u*

Palaiiiisooooo!! Chibi Nishikido Ryo.

I felt like doing an OPM night after hearing Lloyd Umali’s “Bakit Kung Sino Pa” while riding the FX this afternoon. So I went and downloaded a bunch of OPM songs in 4shared when I got home. While listening to Smokey Mountain’s “Paraiso,” my sister shared that the song makes her remember little Nishikido Ryo, NEWS’ and Kanjani 8’s very own, Yellow Renja’s own pitchy version. XDXD

I can’t believe I didn’t know about this.>_<

You can watch the video here:

To the non-Filipino readers:

OPM – Original Pilipino Music

Smokey Mountain – a Filipino singing group, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey_Mountain_(band)

Paraiso won the 1992 Tokyo Pop Music Festival.^^

It’s time to steamline.XD

Today was a plethora of awesome figure photos and reviews that I couldn’t help but blog about it. *sigh* I know I should just stop browsing these anime forums and blogs so I can also stop dreaming but well…That’s easier said than done when you’re “Sunday-afternoon” bored. I’m itching to get a few of those figs that’s why I’m selling off my kpop collection here again.=_=;; I hope someone buys.

Only  two figures will be posted so there won’t be a rant-rave overload.>_<

To start off, we have:

Megahouse’s 2nd Gintama G.E.M figure, none other than the Mayo King and the Vice Captain of the Shinsengumi himself, Hijikata Toushiro!! We won’t really get him gold plated though. *thank god*

Here’s the colored version posted in the Otakai Forum: click me. Don’t you just love how fierce and awesome he looks? *drool* This figure is set for release on June 2010. A perfect birthday present for my self! Yay!^^ The price is much like the other G.E.M figures, 6930 Yen.

Pre-order’s not yet available in Amiami and Amazon though.Pre-order is already open in AmiAmi. I’m gonna wait for this in Amazon to avail free shipping.^^

I need a US VISA.

Actually, before that I need to arrange for a travel passport. =_=;;  I think I was busy playing the Sims 2 on my pc when my parents urged me to tag along with them to the provincial DFA office. Or hmmmm…was that browsing You Tube?

I regretted not getting my passport for the first time when DBSK went to Bangkok.=(

Anyway.. the reason why I’m dreaming for a passport/VISA/and money to travel to the US *again* is here: http://www.yaoicon.com/

YES. The Yaoi-Con is here again… and guess who’s the Guest of Honor mangaka; Dundududun… None other than my favorite, YAMANE AYANO-SENSEI. Oh-em-gee. I would definitely go if I was anywhere in the US.>_>This will be sensei’s second time as the guest of honor in this convention.XD Sensei is loved by many!!

There were no werewolves before New Moon according to one ‘Twihard’

I got this through a post in Facebook.=) I just thought of reposting this to give the original poster more shame.. Tsk tsk tsk. Whoever composed this email has been living a very secluded and sorry life.

The situation: One Kayla Patterson, a twihard obviously, emailed Universal Studios regarding the movie “Wolfman” to pose her claim that “Wolfman” is a complete rip-off of Twilight. I searched online for a ‘Kayla Patterson’ to directly email her but there were too many Kayla Pattersons in the world. wow.XD

Here goes the whole e-mail. Un-edited.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To whom this may concern:

This movie was a complete waste and I feel that it offends ALL Twilight Fans around the world, that including myself. For one, it was a COMPLETE remaking of the Wolf Pack from the Twilight Saga: New Moon. It gives the werewolves a bad name and makes them look like some deformed mutation of a rabid dog. I actually started to like werewolves after seeing Jacob Black and all his awesomeness on the big screen at the movies. That was until I saw your crappy remake of what you call to be a “were wolf”. I don’t see how you live with yourself for making it the way you did. If I made this movie, I would be ashamed to even admit that I owned it. How can a werewolf be killed with a silver bullet?
Better yet, have you saw the transformation of the man that is “supposed” to be the wolf? He sits in some chair and his entire body turns in to some mutated freak. If you would watch the transformation of Jacob Black, (Taylor Lautner) he doesn’t come close to looking as fake, cheap and or mutated as the wolf man.  You tell me, who looks to be the better werewolf. Your stupid Wolf Movie didn’t even make the top Movie for the charts; Valentines Day WITH TAYLOR Lautner! Get that this is MY oppinion and I felt I wanted to express it because I saw that your email was on your site. I wanted to let you know this is what i thought of the wolf
man that sucks.

New Viewfinder chapter coming soon!^^

Sometimes it amazes me just how addicted I am to this series. I’m a real sap lover so me being crazy about this yaoi title without even a hint of sap and just full of action and smex is sort of a puzzle. Or maybe this just shows how extremely perverted I’ve become. *ROFL*

The title has said it all.^^ The new Viewfinder chapter is coming up soon.. as in very soon, like maybe tomorrow there’ll be some raw scans in the YA LJ Community already.XD I won’t be able to sleep much because of this.=_=;;

Two teaser pages are also up in the BBoy site: here

This issue is set for release on April 2010 but for those with a BBOY subscription, they get it about 2 months earlier.=) Some members in the YA comm have a subscription so we get the raw scans earlier than most people.XDXD

Someone in the YA Comm has also kindly translated those  two  teaser pages for us. And yes folks, the fanfic plot where Akihito is being forced to move into Asami’s apartment might just happen. *SQUEEEEE* What else can explain Akihito’s apartment turning empty while he was gone and the presence of another apartment key by his door??? OOOOOH. I just love Yamane Ayano-sensei.^^

Another news for us VF addicts:

Official Pictures of the Junjo Nendos

Chara-Ani finally released the colored prototypes of the

Junjo Romantica Petit Nendoroid!

(set includes Suzuki-san, pic not posted.^^)

You may still order for this uber cute set here:

http://www.chara-ani.com/details.asp?prdid=C08C00011

GET A JAPANESE PROXY NOW.

^___^

I still would have preferred a real Nendoroid over a Petit though. Being ‘Petit’, this means we can’t customize its pose and its looks. With a Nendo, we may also switch the body to that of another Nendoroid if we have others. Makes me wonder how Usagi would look like in Sebby’s tuxedo.

I’ve moved!

I’m still not used to the WP interface. Excuse me if I may not be able to change my layout for a while because. I. Can’t. Figure. Out. How. I’m stuck to using the basic layout provided in my dashboard. heh.

I’m a ‘basic’ html person and using php is waaay out of my league right now. -_-;

Anyhoo. Welcome to the new site. I hope my old friends in Multiply can still check out my entries regularly. I’ll be counting on you guys.

Comments are always loved. ❤
