Behind on everything. Finally got honest enough with myself to admit I'm not happy. Depressed seem too strong a word but we'll see.

Finally read DN 60. I have no coherent thought except that the mangaka have gotta stop digging into the hidden depths of my kinks. But d00d, those shorts! And so 'Village of the Damned'.

[EDIT: So, fanfiction is your ex, RPS (or *koffsshotacon*koffs*) is the one you're having an affair with, but who are you currently seeing?]

[EDIT 2: I refuse to feel guilty about skipping the corporations law lecture when I have been doing nothing but law tutorial preparation since 8.30am]

[EDIT 3: Go and take [livejournal.com profile] petronia's poll. It is highly amusing. I want to live in [livejournal.com profile] petronia and [livejournal.com profile] worldserpent's lj.]

[EDIT 4: Well, I failed my Finance Principles mid-semester, which is worth 40% of the whole unit. There goes any attempt at keeping my average. I'm strangely not depressed about this. In fact I'm angry, screw this I'm going to complain to get that 2.5%. The f*#king bastard.]

DN 60: Nia and Mero

I have been thinking about this for a few days now, and I'm still at the same conclusion. I can't wait for DN 60 to come out. On re-reading DN 59 I'm once more struck by Misa's brilliance (idiot savant is still brilliant, so there.)

DN60: Mero and Nia )

Too much Taiwanese soapies and 'DeathNote'

So, my mother and I had our annual re-watching of Meteor Garden today, (ignoring the crap acting and all, it is still addictive and good entertainment,) during a particularly tear-jerking moment I had an epiphany. Vic Chou would make a perfect L from DeathNote. Honest.

CLICK ME! I'm telling you Vic Chou makes a good L )

SEE! I'm telling you he's perfect. His hair can reach the state of L's hair-do. Honest, it has happened, and most of the time he has dark shadows under his eyes, and I'd show you more photographic evidence except I can't seem to find any of his dorky pictures that makes him perfect for the role of L. MWAHAHAHBWAHAHAHA!

(I'm going to burn in hell for this.)

DN: 59

naanima: (shit)
It isn't that bad.

Though, I'm having way too much MPD Psycho flashes for my own liking.

Hey, maybe L can be Amamiya, Light can be Tetora, and Misa is Miwa >_>

The crack will not stop.

DN 55... and stuff.

  • Jan. 28th, 2005 at 12:40 PM
naanima: (moreTime)
So, I caught up to Death Note (sort of, let's just say I read #55 and few other chapters). There really is nothing to say than L and Raito's (sorry, 'Light') genius is -really- scary, and from the way things are going the series seem to be winding down. I don't want the series to end, even though it would be good for the story if it end when it should (will not think about Hikaru no Go). But if this series does end in 8 (or 9) volumes I'm gonna be damn impressed. I don't remember any popular Shounen title ending before volume 20.

So, #55 )

My PERFECT ending for this series would be L, Raito and Misa walking into the sunset (well skipping into the sunset, but I'll take walking). But it will NEVER be. NEVER! cries*

a few endings I can see happeneing )

Naruto 235? & DN 42,

naruto )

DN 42... Teh Crack! Oh Teh Crack! The Great Escape! *laughs* )

I swear DN is going to make insane, and Naruto is a basket of heartache waiting to happen.

DN 40 & 41.... my impression

naanima: (Default)
DN 40: L can tie a cherry stem into a knot with his tongue!

DN 41: KIRA!Raito? L! Why are you crawling over Raito... ignore me, continue on with what you were doing. Misa, you are forever fated to be stalked by men with strange hair.

There's plot. Honest. I just don't have the energy to figure it out. Too tired. Thus, the short, fangirl version.

So, I hear the Battle is Over in Naruto. The question is should I attempt to find out the result. Hmm.

*goes to sleep*

DN: 39 (?)

  • Sep. 18th, 2004 at 5:12 PM
naanima: (relaxing)

So, DN 39, things get moving, people are introduced, plot gets underway... but ALL I can think about is L with his hand over Raito's shoulder!

(I'm a FANGRRL. Deal with it.)

Uni is eating me alive, I have gained weight (fast food, ice cream and sugar) but I don't care. I'm hungry, stressed, and have been awake for over 35+ hours. Two mid-terms down, two to go, and need to prepare for tutorials.

But that's almost inconsequential in the face of the UKE!Raito vibes.


naanima: (nicotine)
DN 38. This series make me love it more AND more each week. Raito shows us his temper, L shows us his moves. Really good kick. Does anyone know what sort of martial art L did, or was it just something random that he picked up? Anyways, L had the most disgruntled look in this chapter. His cheeks seem to bulge out more than usual when he is stuffing his face full of cake. Actually, he remind me of a chipmunk. Don't ask.

But dude, Raito can do the throw really well, and L's kick! OMFG! L's KICK!

Their choice of fighting style does say a lot about their personality, even if the fight did deteriorate into a punch up -_-;; Hmm, maybe I should stop analysing it, but I CAN'T help it. NOT when Raito is a close body contact type of fighter, and L is teh long range type. It says a lot. It -really- does. Or the fact that L eventually get annoyed enough to get into close contact and attempt to punch Raito's face in ^^;; It's sort of cute.

I have read way too much shounen fight series NOT to analyse a character's fighting style (and the psych text books about body language doesn't hurt). It's fascinating. Now, if L suddenly pick up some sort of long range weapon, and Raito picks up some form of magical gauntlet, we can have DEATHNOTE: SHOUNEN FIGHT SERIES!

Oh. The mind bleed.

Okies, off to edit Mkt. Plan, and then SLEEP!

So, the coffee kicks in just when I'm ready to get some sleep. Oh well. There's always an upside. Chapter 37 of Death Note.

The COVER for this chapter need to be seen. Raito in black. Opened shirt and leather pants. Misa in her Lolita-con/Punk Rocker getup, and L looking like a bat from hell except in white and jeans.

Incoherent SPOILERS for DN 37 from this point forth )

Death Note is on crack. The expensive kind. I love this series.

DN 36. OMFG...

naanima: (sense)
36 of DeathNote. Ooba Tsugumi and Obata-sensei are like gods to me. Complete mindfuck chapter.

Yagami. You are Teh Man.

I have UKE!Raito impressions. HAIR! Wide-eyed! Where is the sociopath?!

Trying to formulate an intelligent reply to this chapter is beyond me at the present time.... though, WHAT HAPPENS NOW?!

*wanders off*
naanima: (would I?)
I'm getting logs! Honest to goodness understand it! Too bad about the other three chapters that I'm confused on -_-;; What doesn't kill me make me stronger... or something.

[livejournal.com profile] worldserpent, I'm not sure if this is what you had in mind. Probably not -_-;

Death Note is eating my brain. ARGH!! Anyways, on a purely psychological front Raito definitely belongs to the Cluster B personality disorders. He has enough symptoms of Antisocial Personality Disorder to be classified as one, though there does not appear to be the presence of Conduct Disorder at a young age. However, the presence of Conduct Disorder can act as an early warning sign but does not need to be present in order for an individual to develop Antisocial Personality Disorder at a later date. The following are the criteria for a person to be diagnosed with Antisocial personality disorder. I'm using the DSM-IV criteria because that's the set of criteria that's the most widely used (Australia follows this), though I understand Europe have a slightly different set of criteria.

Diagnostic Criteria for Antisocial Personality Disorder

A. There is a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others occurring since age 18 years, as indicated by three (or more) of the following:

1. failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest
2. deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure
3. impulsivity or failure to plan ahead
4. irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults
5. reckless disregard for safety of self or others
6. consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations
7. lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another

B. The individual is at least 18 years old (under 18 may suffer from Conduct Disorder)

C. There is evidence of Conduct Disorder with onset before age 15 years.

D. The occurrence of antisocial behavior is not exclusively during the course of Schizophrenia or a Manic Episode

SEE!! Raito can possibly fit into several disorders under the Cluster B disorders. I tend to lean towards Histronic and Narcissistic personality disorders.

manga: Furuba, Naruto, DN, FMA

There are weeks when all the series you follow seem to leave at a cliffhanger or reveal something terribly shocking.

So, Furuba, Akito's revelation. Well, the anime definitely got that one wrong *snickers* I'm not sure if I should be scared by this, or pray that the mangaka can pull off whatever she's trying to pull off.

Naruto: OMFG!! Sasuke! Naruto! The angst! WHY?! I love the both of you so damn MUCH! I mean I understand, but dammit, LOVE and PEACE! Not this anger, this pain, this damn fight. What's really bad is that I don't know how K-sensei is going to end this. Naruto as a shounen series should be about the Hero overcoming odds and winning, thus, at this point Naruto should go all Kyubi and kick Sasuke's arse, BUT it doesn't solve a damn thing. Sasuke need his vengeance, and dragging him back to Leaf is NOT going to solve anything. I want a resolution to this because I'm hurting for Sasuke and I'm hurting for Naruto. My heart wants Naruto to bring Sasuke back, but my head wants Sasuke to win against Naruto and just leave because we all know it is better for the plot. But if K-sensei can make Sasuke see reason again, to realise the 'precious people' in his life, to take a step back and wait to become stronger (kick Itachi's arse!) than I'll forever grovel at his feet.

As for the movie... KAKASHI! SQUEEE! And I'm a confused about the timeline. Naruto is using the rasengan (gods, I can't remember how to spell the damn justsu), and Sasuke is with them. So, does this mean the movie is set sometime after the current arc in the manga, and the anime is taking the AU route?

Death Note: Well... Raito proves once again his mad, mad skillz at screwing people over and thinkig ten steps ahead. So, L, what are you going to do with a person who honestly belief he is innocent? I love this series for the pure amoral aspect of it, and my inner psych student go all SQUEEE when Raito shows us his personality, or when L reveal tid-bits of his personality through his body language. SQUEEE!

FMA: 10 more episodes. It is not going to end happy, especially not with the snippets of the movie we have been getting -_-

Death Note. What are they studying?

  • Aug. 23rd, 2004 at 9:41 AM
naanima: (stalker)
While talking to [livejournal.com profile] amei, somehow ended up discussing what sort of classes Raito and L would take in University. Having no idea on how the Japanese University system works I'm sort shooting in the dark here. But yeah, my two cents.

I personally think Raito will do -everything- he can get away with. Meaning science, philosophy, possibly human bio (med), psychology and maybe a literature unit. Because Raito have to reflect the perfect student but still manage to be normal. He need to be perceived as a highly intelligent individual with a bright future. Thus, all his units will be hard and interesting, but he also -need- to be seen as a normal young adult. Meaning he'll need to seem at least slightly indecisive about his future. I can see someone asking him what he want to do for his future, and Raito replying that he doesn't know, at the present time he just want to try everything and see what he'd more interested in. Because Raito is cunning, and Raito need to seem normal while brilliant.

So, I see him graduating with a Med degree and maybe a Minor in psychology, because Raito need to be at least interested. Law and literature will be too boring and useless to him. Well law does provide him an avenue to be in a position of power, Raito is not the type that works in the light. He -needs- to be the guy controlling the puppet. Raito feel pride and absolute conviction at his actions but Raito doesn't want to be found out, because working from the shadows is fun, and this fits with his vision of a world of absolute Justice.

Anyways, Medicine and psychology. Medicine gives Raito the opportunity to study the human body, psychology allows him to study the mind, and while Raito is efficient at both at present time, he can improve. Manipulation will be much easier. In addition, Raito is methodical, and if things does not fall into his plans Raito tend to get very, very angry, to keep it short Raito is an utter control freak. The one thing that he want to control more than anything else seem to be humanity as a whole. And seriously, Raito is the type that will get a hard on from controlling an individual -without- utilising the Death Note.

[EDIT: As for L, well, L will probably do all the classes that Raito does just for the pure mind-fuck value. I also have this pet theory that L probably have several degrees under his belt already, and one of them will have to be psychology. No one notices everything about another person (cataloging body language in such a methodic manner) without some form of training, even if he is a genius.]
naanima: (blur)
Death Note random comment. Issue 20, see Raito and L do Prince of Tennis.

Issue 21; see Raito and L on their first date. Puzzle and sleuth is the way.

I'm sure I had more intelligent things to say about the manga, however, the two points I just raised seem to sum up everything about Raito and L. I want Raito/L fics!

InitialD Fourth Stage. I LOVE! I LOVE! I LOVE! The adventures of a boy and his car continue. However, the cars are much shinier, the races that much more amazing, and everyone have gotten much prettier. Except for Keisuke, 'cos his hair is a crime against humanity.

Seriously, it's nice to see Takumi maturing so much in his understanding of cars, though I laughed myself sick when Ryousuke made the comment that Takumi hasn't learned to play mind games yet. Love Takumi. I want IniD fics!

Saw King Arthur today. Not bad. Since the King Arthur of Mallory's never really existed, and there are hundreds of interpretations and re-writes of the Arthurian legends this Roman/Briton Arthur is fine.

Beside, the battle scenes more than makes up for the deviation from the Romantic tradition of Arthur. In addition, Arthur is somewhat hot, Lancelot is pretty hot, Tristan is hot, and Guinevere is really hot in that fur/leather get-up thing. I want Arthur/Lancelot/Guinevere threesome fics!
