Got Renji? Genius 356 [Sep. 5th, 2007|12:59 pm]

Ahahaha, I had a dream that giant 3-dimensional kanji letters were hassling me -__-;;; But this is about TeniPuri.

But first? That one meme... I forgot how it goes and I forgot to copy/paste it.

List seven quirks/habits you have.
Tag some folk.

1 - Sometimes I get distracted by my own shower-singing and forget to shave one leg.
2 - I think I have a little crush on my blue mage in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
3 - It pisses me off if it's hot indoors, but I like it hot outdoors
4 - I can't leave the house wearing mismatched socks. They can't just both be the same color, they have to be THE SAME. I'll wear a dirty sock before I'll wear a clean sock that doesn't match.
5 - Playing videogames runs in my family! My dad and I are always trading PC games XD
6 - I'm slightly obsessed with public relations / marketing / communication, in everyday situations as well as public figures.
7 - Uhhhh... I can't think of seven.

I tag you.

You know, I have had my eyes opened to the fact that only certain characters are getting drawn horribly lately.

And then, he gave us this:

Wow!! Impressive!! I don't even know if it's human!! Remember near the end of the Yu-gi-oh anime, how everyone got really pointy, to the extent that they could no longer set their chin on their hands for fear of puncture? Is that where this is heading?

Hrm, I said before lazy art, and this is one of those things that I have no idea what is going on. I really don't. The whole page vexed and vexed me. I'm showing you two panels, but let me recap the previous panels. Panel 1: Renji (I can tell by the racquet) moves Akaya's foot off of Inui's megane by doing that crook-of-the-knee thing with his racquet. Panel 2: Renji picks up Inui's megane. Panel 3: Renji hands Inui his megane with a "Sorry, Sadaharu" (Oohhh squeee yey ;D datapair.)
Then? Then? This.

Oh, you can't tell what I'm talking about? Let me show you a close-up.

Now you can distinctly see it says "Head" on that racquet (in mirror-image, wtf). The only Rikkai person (unless I missed something, which is always possible) who uses a Head racquet is Jackal. You might notice that couldn't even almost be confused for Jackal's hand on that racquet. In fact, since the racquet-holder's jacket is on, if you weren't equipment obsessed like I am, you might think "Oh, it's Renji, smackin Akaya in the head with the racquet."

Ahaha, but, you see, I am equipment obsessed. So I see that, and I say, hey. That's not Renji's racquet. WHO IS THAT. WHO!! WHAT IS GOING ON!!!

Well, I know what this is:

That? That is Renji. Smacking Akaya in the back-knee with his Völkl Catapult V1 Midplus with original Cush-tac grip. How do I know this? It doesn't say any of those words! Well, the truth is, whatever toning or print or whatever it is Konomi uses to put the uber-detail on the equipment? Is mirror-imaged on that racquet, too (it's not always like that). If you do a vertical flip (not a 180) of that pic? You'll be able to read "Cata...."

Lookit, see? It's the same racquet (but that one is mine and no longer has the original Cush-tac griptape, but it does in the picture). Wow it sure was shiny back when it was new. (I didn't buy it just because Renji uses one. I rly didn't!! I tried a bunch of racquets!! Closest one they still make iirc is DNX 10, but I might have forgotten.)

The point is, that is Renji's racquet (or at least a mirror image), and the one hitting Akaya in the head is not Renji's racquet. WAS THERE A CONTEST TO FIND THE ERROR??? WOULD I HAVE WON IF I'D BOUGHT THE MAGAZINE????
Equipment obsession ¬¬

ANYWAY, all that is vexing truly, but... then... there was the page following that page... I would not call most of this a "translation", mainly because I made some stuff up because it's funnier. So don't go "OMG YUUSHI SED...." because, he didn't.
This? Was brilliant. For this scene, I forgive the Sanada art. Yuushi? Is a girl. A sexeh girl. ♥

(It rly sed that on the side of the page, about the new DS game. But maybe I exaggerated a little... ;D )

Oh, holy crap Batman! I just realized something!!
OK it was Renji, but... it's the same concept. And... Konomi is so totally reading my LJ ¬¬

(we'll know for sure if we see this in TeniPuri.)

OK, next up... (sorry, been sittin on this one for a couple days now) an Oofuri-related spazzing!! Trying to get it all in before the next episode comes out, eh!
I'm not insanedrop trou!

Oh Konomi, how far you have fallen. D:

PoT art has become complete crap lately. Well, okay not just lately, but whatever! The point is, the art is crap. I have to wonder if his editors are also wearing fake glasses or something. (-_-)

Anyone who takes manga ideas from my blog screencap crack edits has fallen very far indeed.

(next we shall see the mustaches. I just know it. and in the final chapter? SHIRTLESS SHATNER!)

Ahaha, you only THINK I'm joking -__-;;
(srsly... it's quite scary how much of my crack Konomi has managed to make canon. It's really scary. I will be so vindicated if he uses shirtless shatner XD )

It stopped making sense during the Higa match. Remember Eiji's "doubles" tennis during his singles match? It got weird!!

Yeah so far Oofuri makes sense, from a sports perspective. And they're using the laws of physics. Now that I think about it, TeniPuri started getting really weird after The Movie, which had a soap opera plot and Tezuka killing the dinosaurs ....

Oh, oh, that was SO WEIRD. How the HELL? @___@

Oofuri's well thought out. @_@ Not written while the author's... on... I dunno. Drugs.
