More PoT than you can handle

I'm hyped up on coffee and 17 hours of sleep, and the period pains is only adding to the fuel. Go me.

So yeah, downloading PoT manga scanlations. Re-reading through PoT manga scanlations, and getting depressed at the fact that the Rikkai matches in the manga will never get to be animated. Because dammit, the power-ups of Ryouma, Sanada and Kirihara, or the blind ZenMaster Fuji will never get their coloured screen time. I want the power-ups; I want to be able to see Fuji does his impression of a Wuxia dude as he does the graceful flying thing against Kirihara. And okay, I admit it I also want to be able to hear Sanada say 'Fuu Rin Ka Zan' in a serious voice, 'cos god knows everytime I attempt to say it I end up giggling on the floor. Ohhh, and I want to hear Ryouma speak in English 'cos I suspect the snark meter is gonna go up a few levels. Damn you animators.

There's always the movie. Yes, the movie in 2005! Maybe then I'll be able to see the SuperSaiyin thing ^__^ I can always hope.

On a serious note, I love the fact that Ryouma is so kick arse in the manga, and that Fuji has reached a state of enlightenment, and that Tezuka is probably going to return more powerful than ever, but I'm also slightly, hmmm, concerned. The discrepancies between the power levels get to me in my moments of clarity. The ease at which Ryouma and Kirihara take and melds their opponent's move annoys to me a tad (only sometime). 'Cos you know their opponents work their arse off to attain those moves, and the prats only needs one match to copy them, and in Ryouma's case use a mixture of moves from two opponents (Kamio and Shinji's). Grrr. It just rubs me the wrong way on a fundamental level. But it's alright, I can deal, 'cos as I keep on reminding myself, this series, when it comes down to it, is about evolution of people and their tennis skills, more so Ryouma's evolution than anyone else. Beside, the other players will get stronger too; it's just that they'll never be as strong as Ryouma. Oh well, pass the crack.

And now I shall go and download more images of anime/manga series, 'cos I wanna make wallpaper and icons ^__^V

replaing FF7 and re-reading PoT

Replaying FF7. Love FF7.

Had forgotten that one of the major themes to the game was of people watching the world pass by, observing the joys and the pains of others, not caring enough to help.

Beside airships, trains seem to be a big thing in FF7 (and 8).

Need sleep. Want to keep on playing. Just reached level 66 of Shinra building (love this part).

Can't wait for Advent Children. Everything in 3D. All the characters, all the places. And please GOD let there by flashback scenes, because yes, I am masochistic enough in wanting to see Aerith's death in FULL 3D glory. I will cry, I will rage, but I will squee with all the emotional force I can.

Now for PoT-manga thoughts (in no particular order). Specifically the Rikkai matches.

1. Jiroh is such a fangirl, the cute-bouncy sort not the stalker-maniac sort (though I might be wrong here).

2. Rikkai is cool. Hands down, no questions asked.

3. Sanada's hat is a hat of dorkiness that is a crime against humanity.

4. Sanda is cool because despite the hat-of-dorkiness the boy put the fear of God into the mass.

5. Inui is KEWL! Bow before Inui!

6. Thank the gods that Renji finally got a better hair cut. Gakuto is not the way to go.

7. Atobe. In the Hyotei uniform. In that pose. Is hot.

8. Niou and Yagyuu's relationship is beyond anything I have seen. Precisely because they are not related.

9. Yukimura is wow.

10. Fuji is a God. That, or the Zen Master of All Zen Masters.

11. Kirihara is a brat prone to demon possession. But a adorable brat.

12. Seigaku & Rikkai has gone beyond the current level of human evolution.

13. I want to see Konomi-sensei do ShounenFight manga! (a proper Samurai drama would be highly appreciated). As [ profile] sesame_seed said, just use the PoT cast. Transpose the characters into the new fighting series, and call it Prince of Blades. I would buy the manga.

Random PoT thoughts

So, in between taking notes for Legal Framework, I started thinking about PoT, and one question that I've been meaning to ask popped up.

Let's assume that Seigaku wins against Rikkai, does it mean that Rikkai have no chance of entering the Nationals? Didn't Rikkai win the Nationals last year (I really need to check up the detail)? And if that's the case, doesn't it mean Rikkai automatically have a spot in the Nationals? I mean they are seeded as the National Number 1, right?

'Cos you know, I really, really, really WANT Rikkai to win (they want to win for Yukimura, and that's just so much more meaningful than winning for a captain who damaged his shoulder). Or at least makes it to the Nationals. Hell, in my deluded little mind I'm still holding a candle for Fudomine and Hyotei ending up in the Nationals. It doesn't need to make sense (god knows a lots of PoT at times doesn't make sense), I just want it somehow to happen.

My perfect ending for Prince of Tennis would be Seigaku, with Tezuka (left shoulder healed) entering the Nationals. The end.

No, I'm serious. I don't want to see what happens in the Nationals. I just want to know that they made it. And if this is the anime, I want the credit rolling with shots of Seigaku and the other rival schools of what happened after the Nationals.

Fuji, 'cos everybody is doing it

So Genius 218, and the Fuji revelation, which if you think about it, isn't really much of one.

I feel happy about it, hell most of the time I feel good when canon confirm what I had always assumed. Ahh, the smugness.

But that aside, I'm not disappointed by Teh Fuji. I can see why people are annoyed and have had their beliefs in him shaken, but well *shrugs* I never, for an instance saw Fuji truly serious about Tennis. To make it simple Fuji has always been a true genius to me.

Meaning, I had always thought that Fuji, because of his intelligence, sees things so differently from other normal people that he has to observe how others act in order to react accordingly. Though he probably find vast amusement out of human reactions as well. As I said to [ profile] worldserpent it is like humans being amused by the antics of monkeys or other animals.

Go and read [ profile] worldserpent's the long blog about Fuji. I pretty much agree with everything she has written, and she does it much more coherently.

Gods, I need coffee.
