Hello 2010 and Winter & Spring Anime for 2010

April 11, 2010 by

Greetings dear reader, welcome to the first (technical) 2010 post of The Juggernaut’s Poetry Log – where everything in my life is poetry.

First off, I would take this opportunity to point out my Twitter feed on the right hand column of the blog. various insights and at times fanboyisms will come flowing through that portal.

Next, I’d like to point out that I have decided to separate my musings into Hello! Project idols and JPop as well as KPop off to separate blogs – The Random H!P Blog and JPopVsKPop, in order to deconstruct them in an orderly manner. As they are both works in progress, I will soon enlist contributors for the blogs. This would ensure that the anime and miscellaneous side of my personage would remain distinct from those two more organised ones, if only to keep the tone of those posts professional and technical.

Now on to the “meat” of the post, which is nothing really 😀 it is merely me ripping “chartfag“s charts and circling those series I intend to watch. And at this point :gasp: i may even further elucidate on the virtues of a select few series, after i have watched it all in one go of course.

First off, winter 2010, a time of ok series.

Durarara, Dance in the Vampire Bund, Hanamaru Youchien, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, Hidamari Sketch :star x 3:, Omamori Himari, Chu-bra! and Kaito Reinya are the “main series” to watch with miscelleanous OVAs. Winter 2010 was a lean period for my tastes, with 8 series that pique my interests, lean times. out of the lot, I would probably think of doing a deconstruct on Hanamaru Youchien and Baka to Test, as these two series have been acquired and marathon watched already.

Now, on to Spring 2010, which seems to have more promise.

I think I’d let the reader decide what is great :D. Heroman was a surprise insert, if only because it is a Stan Lee vehicle and a Bones project. Angel Beats, though uncircled, could prove to be a surprise 14th series to watch, if my twitter comrades say nice things about it :D. (that is the case with Baka to Test, it almost became a non watch, as Hanamaru Youchien, instead it became the more enjoyable series.)

Alright then, the watching may not commence soon, as i start “work” for my uni tomorrow. So, things may become a lot more sporadic that is already has been.However, when my muse returns, the poetry, manga musing and fanboying over favourite idols will be posted now and then here and there in the other two blogs.

until the next post!

Good day, dear reader!

Hibernation activity

November 2, 2009 by

Hi blog readers ( if there are any), I wish to thank you for your visits and comments. I will be taking an extended break from cyberspace. This would mean me giving up on the NaNoWriMo as well. as much as this pains me, it has to be done. this also means i would be dropping everything, from webcomics, to blogs and to FB. This blog will be devoid of activity for the next 4-5 months.
Adieu until then 😀

Touhou-Bad Apple!! PV -Stylized Shadow Art

October 31, 2009 by

Have you ever had something that spurred you to play a video game before? I have just experienced it… it is a song from Touhou ( SHOCK!) so… picking this doujin game series up in april/may 2010 😀


Bad Apple!!

Arrange= Masayoshi Minoshima Lyrics= Haruka Vocal= nomico

Nagareteku toki no naka de demo kedarusa ga hora guruguru mawatte
Watashi kara hanareru kokoro mo mienaiwa sou shiranai?

Even in the midst of flowing time, oppression spins round and round.
I can’t even see the heart that’s leaving me, didn’t you know?

Jibun kara ugoku koto mo naku toki no sukima ni nagasare tsuzukete
Shiranai wa mawari no koto nado watashi wa watashi sore dake

I can’t even get myself to move, slipping through the cracks of time.
I don’t know anything about what’s around me, I’m just me and no more.

Yume miteru? Nani mo mitenai? Kataru mo muda na jibun no kotoba
Kanashimu nante tsukareru dake yo nani mo kanjizu sugoseba ii no

Am I dreaming? Or seeing nothing? My words are useless even if I speak.
I’m just tired of being sad, I should go on without feeling anything.

Tomadou kotoba ataerarete mo jibun no kokoro tada uwa no sora
Moshi watashi kara ugoku no naraba subete kaeru no nara kuro ni suru

Even if you give me the words I’m at a loss for, my heart just won’t pay attention.
If I can move, if everything changes, it will go dark.

Konna jibun ni mirai wa aru no? Konna sekai ni watashi wa iru no?
Ima setsunai no? Ima kanashii no? Jibun no koto mo wakaranai mama

Is there a future for someone like me? Will I still exist in a world like this?
Is this painful? Is it sad? Not even knowing myself.

Ayumu koto sae tsukareru dake yo hito no koto nado shiri mo shinaiwa
Konna watashi mo kawareru no nara moshi kawareru no nara shiro ni naru

I’m just tired even of walking, I don’t even understand people.
If someone like me can change, if I change, it will turn white.

Nagareteku toki no naka de demo kedarusa ga hora guruguru mawatte
Watashi kara hanareru kokoro mo mienaiwa sou shiranai?

Even in the midst of flowing time, oppression spins round and round.
I can’t even see the heart that’s leaving me, didn’t you know?

Jibun kara ugoku koto mo naku toki no sukima ni nagasare tsuzukete
Shiranai wa mawari no koto nado watashi wa watashi sore dake

I can’t even get myself to move, slipping through the cracks of time.
I don’t know anything about what’s around me, I’m just me and no more.

Yume miteru? Nani mo mitenai? Kataru mo muda na jibun no kotoba
Kanashimu nante tsukareru dake yo nani mo kanjizu sugoseba ii no

Am I dreaming? Or seeing nothing? My words are useless even if I speak.
I’m just tired of being sad, I should go on without feeling anything.

Tomadou kotoba wa ataerarete mo jibun no kokoro tada uwa no sora
Moshi watashi kara ugoku no naraba subete kaeru no nara kuro ni suru

Even if you give me the words I’m at a loss for, my heart just won’t pay attention.
If I can move, if everything changes, it will go dark.

Muda na jikan ni mirai wa aru no? Konna tokoro ni watashi wa iru no?
Watashi no koto wo iitai naraba kotoba ni suru no nara [rokudenashi]

Is there a future to come out of this useless time? Will I exist in a place like this?
If I wanted to tell you what kind of person I am, the words I’d use would be “good for nothing.”

Konna tokoro ni watashi wa iru no? Konna jikan ni watashi wa iru no?
Konna watashi mo kawareru no nara moshi kawareru no nara shiro ni naru

Will I exist in a place like this? Will I exist in a time like this?
If someone like me can change, if I change, it will turn white.

Ima yume miteru? Nani mo mitenai? Kataru mo muda na jibun no kotoba
Kanashimu nante tsukareru dake yo nani mo kanjizu sugoseba ii no

Am I dreaming now? Or seeing nothing? My words are useless even if I speak.
I’m just tired of being sad, I should go on without feeling anything.

Tomadou kotoba wa ataeraretemo jibun no kokoro tada uwa no sora
Moshi watashi kara ugoku no naraba subete kaeru no nara kuro ni suru

Even if you give me the words I’m at a loss for, my heart just won’t pay attention.
If I can move, if everything changes, it will all go dark.

Ugoku no naraba ugoku no naraba subete kowasuwa subete kowasuwa
Kanashimu naraba kanashimu naraba watashi no kokoro shiroku kawareru?

If I move, if I move, everything will break, everything will break.
If I’m sad, if I’m sad, will my heart be able to turn white?

Anata no koto mo watashi no koto mo subete no koto mo mada shiranai no
Omoi mabuta wo aketa no naraba subete kowasu no nara kuro ni nare!!!

I still know nothing about you, about me, about anything.
If I can open my heavy eyelids, if I break everything, turn black!!

The Super Seiyuu Legion

October 22, 2009 by

There is a legend, that speaks of greatness, of voice actresses, who have the beauty and grace as well as the voice to be worthy of the Super Seiyuu Legion.

They are in no particular order,

Horie Yui, Mamiko Noto, Mizuki Nana, Kugimiya Rie, Tamura Yukari, Kawasumi Ayako, Tanaka Rie, Sato Rina, Ueda Kana, Mai Nakahara, Ai Shimizu

This list of ethereal beings are notable because they all debuted in the late 1990’s and have since voiced some of the most amazing and influential characters in anime. ( also most of them are in their late 20’s/early 30’s)

(I may have missed out a few, and whoever debuted after 1999 is not counted… ( otherwise i’d include Chihara minori in there, she was a late bloomer)

Pic Spam on request. 😀

oh linky thing to Seiyuu Saimoe http://bonkurasu.animeblogger.net/2009/07/saimoe-seiyuu-edition-2009/

Kappa Queen, and The Toothy Princess

October 21, 2009 by

My Water Imp.

She gambols around,
in shallow water,
and smiled her wonky grin,
her eyes glisten,
in the glittering day,
‘neath the tree,
by the creek,
she splashed water,
at me and our place,
she looked beautiful,
in her green bathing suit,
creamy complected,
dark hair in pigtails,
never thought,
i’d even dream of this moment,
my sweet water imp,
frolicked along the creek,
without a care in the world,
just the thought,
of Her and me.

To my Toothy Princess biggrin.gif
my grinning princess
teeth like pearls,
gleam in twilight,
straight flowing hair,
like the black veil of night,
drops of perspiration,
glisten in the moonlight,
as you dance with your all,
each move, filled with vigour,
inspire me to do the same,
like a sacred ritual,
we dance in rings,
in the forest clearing,
the bliss we feel,
will last forever,
you laugh rings clear,
in the crisp evening air,
echo throughout the forest,
i crowned your hair,
with a clover circlet,
my lady luck,
you have given me,
reason to be grateful,
for my worldly existence.

Nature’s Gift to Man Chapter 2

October 14, 2009 by

We left our protagonists, in a peaceful field, with a soft breeze and the gentle beating of the immortal Sun. They were lying in the meadow, oblivious to the world. The birds chirping, and the trees swaying in the gentle breeze.Their bodies were close to each other, as they slumbered on, blissfully in a world of their own, hands clasping, on the soft grass. Whilst this scene of pure unbridled sweetness was unfolding, the skies changed rapidly, for a large rouge cloud of watervapour loomed in over the meadow, from the plainss, threatening to unleash its contents over the valley.

:drop:

Light droplets of rain started to fall down, gently rolling off the brows of the two protagonists, on to the ground, nourishing it. They awoke, and hurriedly looked around for shelter. He grabbed hold of her hand, and smiled, and pulled her into the wood. He knew there was shelter there, a little hut for trampers for he was there before he met her. It would keep them dry and safe, from the elements, and the darkening skies.

Running quickly, they reached the hut in a clearing in the woods.
She stopped and held him back, hugging him.
They were embracing in the gentle rain.
Idyllic and sweet, a literal overdose of pure bliss.

When it rained down a little harder, he smiled at her, motioning towards the hut. She nodded, and they walked into the hut, away from the pouring rain.
Inside, he started a fire in the fireplace, stoking the embers to life and checked his stash of wild mushrooms and food rations in the pantry. he then sat next to her, by the fireplace.
They realised that their clothing was damp. He shyly looked away as she removed her sundress, scanning the room for his blanket. Thankfully, she was wearing a camisole and shorts underneath the sundress. He proceeded to wrap her in his blanket, removed his shirt and joined her in his blanket, his bare shoulder on hers.
In front of the fire, their clothing dries and they drift off to yet another dream.
——————————-
He awoke from slumber, the blanket half way down his body. The fire had gone out, leaving glowing embers.
He gazed over to his side, where his companion was not there.
He heard a slight clamour in the pantry.
When he got there, he saw her.
She was in her dry sundress, and had a tartan apron on.
The first words he heard her say, beautifully enunciated, were like drops of heavenly manna.
” Coffee, or Tea?”
He replied,
“Cocoa, my dear.”
She smiled and handed him a hot mug of cocoa, dark as the night. She knows these things, as it is her nature to know such things.( but she cheated… she used Milo…. )

He was aware of his half-nakedness the second he took the first sip of cocoamilo.
As the warmth shot to his face, blushing his cheeks, he dashed back to the living area to put his shirt on.

For being aware of his nakedness can only mean the story has begun.

The Universal Prayer

O, Adorable Lord of Mercy and Love,
Salutations and Prostrations unto Thee,
Thou art Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient,
Thou art Satchitananda,
Thou art the indweller of all beings,
Grant us an understanding heart, equal vision, balanced mind,
Faith, Devotion , and wisdom,
Grant us inner spiritual strength,
to resist temptation and to control the mind,
Free us from Egoism, Lust, Greed, Anger and Hatred,
Fill our hearts with divine virtues,
Let us behold Thee in all these Names and Forms,
Let us serve Thee in all these Names and Froms,
Let us ever remember Thee,
Let us ever sing Thy Glories,
Let Thy name be ever on our Lips,
Let us abide in Thee forever and ever.

Hare Aum.

Love

September 24, 2009 by

your beautiful, beaming smile,
lights up my darkest day,
your sweet fine pixie face,
brings warmth to the recesses,
of the deepest depths,
of my dark soul,

Have I been struck, with a strange affliction?
is it what the ancients called, a love addiction,
a craving so intense, so right and so true,
that your soul screams out for more,
your compassion, magnanimity and authority,
makes me wonder,
why was i asunder,

before i found you,
i was oh so blue ,
I needed a glue,
which entailed a clue,
I want to imbue,
my precious thoughts of you,
upon everyone,
even to my unborn son,
even when i am gone,
tales will be told of you,
prepared i am,
sure , I am,
undoubtedly I am,
in love with you,
your grace of movement,
your sophistry of speech,
your clarity of thought,
your intensity of passion,
all those endear me to you,

your drive for success,
is making my head a mess,
Now I need to address,
this growing abcess,
of need in my heart,
for I have naught but a cart,
to sweep up all my parts,
that have been rendered apart,
by your sweet smile,
as serene as the river Nile,
so without any rile,
i shall commit to thee my life`.

The Meandering Path

September 21, 2009 by

The Meandering Path
a path meanders,
through the woods,
tracing the contours,
of this sweet earth,
she went on this gallivant,
with her loved ones,
a sweet face,
whose dark eyes follow,
the path to its horizon,
wondering its origin,
right up to its end,
she dwelled,
on its purpose,
as she pondered,
her own destiny,
its possibilities,
its trials,
she thought,
long and hard,
falling behind,
being left behind,
her jet-black locks,
framing her creamy cheeks,
glisten in the setting Sun,
shining through leaves,
her countenance pink,
she saw a flower,
plucking it up,
she pondered on it,
she tucked the flower,
into her fillet,
and gathered speed,
to keep up with the group,
ah, the soft winds of autumn,
they carress her,
porcelain skin,
rosy cheeks,
her luscious lips,
quiver in the chill,
she beckoned,
her quick comrades,
to take rest,
as night fell,
round the campfire,
they sang songs,
of longing and love,
and of what can be,
she sighed wistfully,
the still of the night,
reminded her,
of the meandering path.
