Am going to be mostly logged into my fandom blog from now on. However if for any reason you really need to contact me, you can send me an ask (I think it does do email notification).

Am playing yet another otome game. May blog about it on the other blog, but it is one of those where only one route explains what’s really going on, but I need to go through other routes to get there.

Damn, Japanese otome game fandom is full of wank. What do you call it when there are three times as many anti- threads dedicated to a topic as topic threads? I need to find a better place to get info/discussion.

In other news, considering consolidating my tumblrs and “moving” to…

Is there some kind of message board format-like thing elsewhere though? I can’t stand using Twitter to try and read discussions.

Hnnnngh I know places like that for fujoshi stuff (though I don’t use it) and regular games (which I do use), but not for otoge, sorry…

Using twitter is not all that bad, though. You can write a surprising amount of stuff under the character limit with how the Japanese language is. I don’t feel like the average 2ch post is much longer than a tweet, anyway.

Though with twitter’s new design it’s probably going to be pretty painful finding accounts you like, too, so if you hate the interface it’s going to get worse.

It’s not so much the length (I don’t intend to participate in discussions anyhow) but following the replies that drives me nuts.

I made something like this once (although non-alcoholic). It was great.

Am currently reading a book about oni, which is quite hard to read because of the vocab and also because of the casual historical and literary references. One weird anecdote mentioned is about the famous poet Saigyo, who was a monk. In this story, he uh…. revives the dead, but ineptly.

Yes, this is a game where the love interest is a Brother printer (in the top pic, the heroine sees him dressing…)

The shadow of a statue of a thousand-handed Kannon (I think).

Old photos of the treasures of Kofukuji

Old photos of the treasures of Kofukuji (a Buddhist temple in Nara). I saw some of these, especially the Asura statue famed for its pensive expression, in Kyushu where they had been temporarily put on display.
