For Halloween, Takumi's hair is every color. [Oct. 27th, 2008|12:19 pm]

I uploaded a couple of non-tennis-related songs! From "Nightmare before Christmas"...
This is Halloween (original!)
This is Halloween - Panic at the Disco version!

Want more from that movie? I can upload the whole soundtrack, or you could try one of these bittorrent links here. I'm seeding, on ... one of them...

Oofuri Tiem

In Oofuri news, I'm... no longer reading the monthly releases, mainly because acquiring them is more trouble than it's worth. The only problem I have is that she re-draws stuff... sometimes it's something really insignificant! Do you remember Naomasa-wears-girl-pance? Well, Higuchi re-drew that so that he no longer looks as much like he's wearing girl pance D:

Also she re-drew the position of Abe's arm when he's brushing his teeth. Seems insignificant, but I really liked the way it looked in the original. Artists should not be allowed to mess with what has already been publicly presented, even if it sucked ¬¬

See? My life is better not having seen the brilliance that is the raw unedited manga. I'll just buy the tanks and if it takes 20 years then it takes 20 years. Altho of course if you notice something in a chapter that you think I need to see, you're more than welcome to tell me about it in case I need to download the chapter! (these would be Hamada begoodness or Bijou luff scenes!!)

Speaking of Bijou luff. How cute are they! There's alot of shirtless Bijou in this tank, I don't think I presented shirtless Takii in previous installments of "Val's Oofuri Hour" (I made that up just now) but I know I showed the Matsushita scene:

Originally published in the magazine.
The 'refurbished' version.

I'm still not 100% sure that's actually the same scene!!

But, included in vol 11 was a bonus page of pitchers! Who's your favorite?

I'll translate, to the best of my ability:
Top right: "Here's the pitches that the pitchers we've seen so far use:"
Boxes, clockwise from just under that floating phrase above:
Ichihara Yutaka - Straight, screw (it drops a little [lower?] than a sinker).
Mihashi Ren - 'down the middle', power 'down the middle', curve, slider (it drops a little), shooter.
Kanou Shuugo - straight, little fork, big fork, changeup.
[a big thing in the corner I'm skipping]
Haruna Motoki - Straight, power straight, slider.
Kaguyama Naoto - Straight, curve, slider.
[on the outside of the circle of d00ds]
Takase Junta - straight, slider, fork, sinker.
Momoe Maria - straight, screw.
Takenouchi - straight, slider, shooter, changeup.

Yeah it just says Takenouchi. It didn't give his given name, which is Yoshito, which is what they call him, his friends. Takumi is missing from this page! Oh yeah, he hasn't been revealed yet in the story so far... he's my favorite!! Engine kakero!
I can't read one of the kanjis because I suck at kanji, but if someone else knows what that one is you can tell me.

They say "straight" when I think it would be considered a "fastball" even tho it's not fast. But that's what a "power straight" is, an actual fastball like Nolan Ryan.
Who's Nolan Ryan!

I'm sure someone else already scanned the cover, which is adorable, showing the Nishiura pep band and the cheer girls! But you know, no Bijou or Hamada, so I'm not super motivated ;D But the trumpeters are holding their horns in a strange unnatural way.

Did you read it yet? Volume 11? It's got that part that tells about Hamada's 'sordid' past! LOVE HIM MOAR. It's a command. *invokes pheromones until you comply*
I'm not insanedrop trou!

TRUFAX. It's like she's covering her tracks! No fair!!


I won't be able to buy Vol. 11 until November 13th. That's the day my friends and I decided to go back to the Japanese bookstore for whatever reason.

I think there's a certain charm to a hastily drawn panel made to meet a deadline, and we won't have those in print unless we go buy a bunch of back issues!

I can't fathom that there's not a japanese bookstore here, but I can only find a chinese-selling-japanese-things bookstore, but most of it is in chinese except for some trashy romance novels in japanese. BUT THERE HAS TO BE A DECENT JAPANESE BOOKSTORE SOMEWHERE IN THIS CITY. I JUST CAN'T FIND IT!

I hope you find other treasures when you finally get to go!!

One day I'll be able to read/watch Oofuri T.T

Surprisingly, I liked the Manson version of This is Halloween more.. I think it's because Manson put his own flair to the song while P!atD's sounded too close to the original :D

Oofuri is probably easier to take in huge chunks, where you can skip the boring bits ...

I agree that Manson's has more originality, but I don't like Manson things so I didn't like that either XD A friend of mine was talking about Panic at the Disco so I uploaded it, but you're exactly right, it's REAL close to the original. I sorta wondered why they did it. But the Fall Out Boy version of "what's this" is awesome. I might upload that at Christmas XD

Wow, between those two panels you're comparing up there, I really prefer the magazine one! The other one looks cleaner, but also a little crowded and it distracts the viewer from the point, which is the naked torso!
I stiiiiill haven't read Oofuri, so I don't know many characters yet, but all of what's going on seems so exciting! I hope I can start reading it before it's finished, not like I did with Prince of Tennis, in barely in volume 3 now, but it's reminding me of most of the things in the storyline I had forgotten.
and OH MY GOD, that pitchers page is amazing, I'm saving it! My precious Kanou is right there in the middle of it.

By the way, did you watch the Prince of Tennis 100 Song Marathon? It was all kinds of epic too and LOL, I didn't expect Sanada's seiyuu to look like that.

I totally agree with you that she should leave them like that (but many other mangakas do that too, right?), and I really wonder why she re-does panels, when the magazine one there looks more finished and cool than its final version : (

Hahaha, I didn't remember that scene between Roka and Takii!!
