YOU WERE ONLINE! I miss talking to you. I hate not having free time.

Hello, I miss you.
Kitaan Moderator 8wk 2d ago
Heey you! Sorry I just disappeared off the face of the MSN world.
I got super busy with work and home life, I'm currently scrambling
to find a new place to live; landlord decided to kick my family out for no
reason so I've got 27 days to find a home!
As for my job things have gotten interesting finally lol
I'm going to take on the challenge of fixing the overnight crew, so I'll
officially be a night owl xD Going to start hopefully in 2 weeks.
Wish me luck!
How've you been? Hope work is going good, I know I owe
you a collab so I'll try to be on more again once I get settled in my new place <33

Nice! Where did you go? You sound like you've been busy but been having fun :)
Lol maybe cause Jin and Yamapi's characters were scripted to have more presence than Kame in Gokusen and Nobuta. Yamato Nadeshiko was good, I think Kame looks cuter with short hair. But I think I prefer the baka of the group Nakamuramaru. I actually prefer the more recent KATTUN songs over Arashi ones (just seems like Arashi's producers can't be bothered to put effort into their stuff anymore since they're already so popular), but I still prefer Arashi as TV personalities.
I watched Maou for Toma but ended up getting really into Arashi (someone needs to tell Ohno that he looks way better when his hair isn't spiky and blonde >_> His lawyer getup was totally adorable) Love the theme song Truth. I'm actually kinda glad now that they didn't debut Toma as a singer. Most of the Johnny's boys are amazing TV personalities but half of them really can't sing >_> Toma got to concentrate on his acting and became a great actor :3 I've been waiting for Genji Monogatari, is it out subbed?
Mr Johnny plays favouritism a lot. Most groups (esp the younger ones) always has a few in the limelight while the others are treated like backdancers. I think that's one thing I disliked about KATTUN, Kame (and used to be along with Jin) always got to be in the centre of their PV's and had more solo bits while the others tended to be thrown in the background. Maybe that's why I prefer Arashi, all of them get pretty equal attention and screen time.
I do want to wall again. Had a sudden spurt of motivation and finished my 2 year old project. I want to do more but time and motivation is pretty hard to come by these days. Would love to see you do more Uraboku walls *_* Don't retire :(
Kenshin movie was <3<3<3<3<3<3<3 I actually went in expecting it to be lame with cheesy fight scenes like other live action adaptations. But it was absolutely amazing and hollywood grade. Best adaptation hands down. Can't wait for movie 2!
I do have facebook but I don't use it very regularly and post something maybe once a month...
Sorry. Late again. So many things happened and I dunno where to begin. Well, let just say my PC exploded 3 weeks ago (well, it’s my power supply unit that exploded. Hopefully my motherboard safe!) and I'm stuck using my brother netbook and my eyes hurts looking at the small screen before I realize I can always attach my PC monitor to the netbook ^^; After that kinda goes like, “I’ll reply back to Kara-chan later/tomorrow.” But I never did. And I’m stuck doing some design for my small projects 2 weeks ago and last week I’m helping out my big brother designing a t-shirt. So yeah ^^
Ahahahaha... nowhere special. My twin nieces never went to KL (Malaysia main capital), so they wanna go there no matter what. But what we end up doing is changing trains and going to shopping malls! Lol... Oh well.
Well, I don’t think that’s the reason, coz Kame is the main character in both drama and they’re focusing more on Shuuji & Ryu rather than Akira & Hayato. Anyways, I rewatched the drama again after I got into Kame (and KAT-TUN) and I think it’s mainly because his acting didn’t impress me much or the fact I don’t care about his face. I think around that time I’m going kya, kya over a seiyuu (SAKUPYON!) and anime. So, I don’t care about idols much ^^; And the fact that Kame-chan is a freaking walking skeleton! I’m surprised to find out he only weighted 40kg during Nobuta days! And I still don’t like him in both drama. Too thin! And I prefer the current Kame-chan. He looks healthy. And chubbier! *pinch his chubby cheeks*
I didn’t really follow Arashi that much, so I didn’t know about their songs (unless it’s on their members drama I watch, but that’s pretty rare.) and I can’t say. But, I actually love KAT-TUN’s coz they always take risks and sang all kind of music genre that was given to them. They even had more rocker numbers than TOKIO ever had! I must say I like KAT-TUN rock-ish songs coz it fits them well. Queen of Pirates album was one example. Most of their songs in that album are very rock-ish. And I want them to sing that kind of songs again. Fumetsu no Scrum & EXPOSE wasn’t rock enough for me >_<
I’ve watched Arashi as tv personality before and they’re indeed interesting. I can see why they got many variety programmes. They had the ‘right’ personality for it. KAT-TUN in other hand, is VERY individualistic and everyone knows that. So, it’s kinda hard to see them as good tv personality together, coz they always like bara-bara. Plus, only Nakamaru & Kame-chan is good at hosting/talking (hence why they got into Shu1 & GOING!) Ueda used to say he hates doing variety programmes, but I wonder if he still hates it now.
Ahahahaha.... I agree on that ^^ Toma is better as actor than singer anyways. Well, he wasn’t that bad but... acting is more his specialty. I think he knew he won’t be debuted as singer in Johnny’s after Yamapi went to News and disband Four Tops, so he concentrates on acting instead. Well, he did it! Oh yeah... you should join plotboxes@livejounal. Most of the movies (and dramas) over there got subtitle pretty fast! I download Genji Monogatari over there! As well as Rurouni Kenshin, Helter Skelter and many more!
Well, lucky me got into KAT-TUN after Jin left. When I watched old vids, like Shokura, I kinda noticed that too. But at the same time, I realize that one thing that set KAT-TUN apart from other group is their individualistic. It’s really strong. Even if T-TUN didn’t get much screentime or solo lines in their songs, they still got solo songs. Solo performances. Kisumai don’t. After they debut, it’s all about those three and all the other 4 got was a duet. Never a solo. Well, I wouldn’t say I like or hate old KAT-TUN, but I had to say that I’m glad Jin left. KAT-TUN is more balance right now and they finally act like a group. Their bonds got stronger too. But I heard that Jin fans hates when we said this. Lol... sorry but to say. 5-nin KAT-TUN is much better when they’re 6! I think the reason is Jin himself. He’s KAT-TUN No.1 rebellious and most individualistic member. So, I think the other trying to keep up with him and end up being selfish themselves thus the results. But, from old interview, it’s safe to say that KAT-TUN is actually created for Kame sake, but Jin is better singer. So I guess that’s why KAT-TUN end up having those two as front face. But now Jin is gone, and I actually got into KAT-TUN after he left, I don’t wanna dwell on the past and keep talking about how Kame & Jin used to hogs all the limelight. Because for me, KAT-TUN strongest point is their individualistic and stubbornness. ^^ And their silly, childish fights too. No other Johnny's got into fistfight afterall! >_<
Hahahaha... but I really don't have any motivations to wall again! I'd love to get it back, but who knows. Let's wait until I've calm down from my KAT-TUN-high. I might concider it ^^
I actually saw the trailers before and already had high expectations for the movie. Glad it didn’t disappoint me! I just wish Kaoru had bigger roles in it. Takei Emi look so cute as Kaoru!

Haha I got into the Johnny's fandom a few years ago too, was an avid livejournal stalker and everything XD But I'm a bit more into Arashi then KAT-TUN. I watched a bit of Cartoon KATTUN though. I like SMAP and Ikuta Toma too, but aside from those 4, I'm not that into the other groups. I love it when the Johnny's boys go onto each other shows (esp when the kouhais go on Nakai's old music show, lots of cute bullying and other fun stuff (like how he keeps calling KATTUN "Kattsun") :D I don't chase stuff that avidly anymore but still love the boys :D
Yeah... just realised one day how long I've had my desktop wallpaper for so I visited MT again and the urges to wall grew :D Would love to see you wall again :D
P.S. if you like dramas, have you watched the Kenshin movie? *3*~<3<3<3
Sorry for the late reply. I went to a trip with my twin niece right after I posted the last one. I got back on 8th, but then my nephew wedding and all... And I just remember I haven't reply you back ^^;
Ahahaha... most of people I known were/was into ARASHI. I didn't why I just can't like them. I mean, I've seen MatsuJun drama (Gokusen, Kimi wa Petto and Hana Yori Dango) and love their songs for HanaDan, but somehow I just can't. Feels like they're lacking something. Or maybe I'm more into 'bad boys' like KAT-TUN? ;p LOL.... and I got into KAT-TUN because of Kame in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge! Again, because of drama. The strange thing is, I've seen Kame before in Gokusen 2, Nobuta wo Produce and even One Pound Gospel back in 2005-2008! I just never noticed him back then ^^; Oh well.
I like Ikuta. Too bad he never debut properly. I love/missed him in Shounen Club! But I'm glad he's doing well as an actor! I watch him in MAOU with Ohno and... man! I hate his character, but he's one hell actor! I watch his movie Genji Monogatari the other day too. Can't wait for his new movie as the serial killer, I think? I brought OriStar magazine at Kino when I went for a trip last week, and there's a pic preview of his new movie and he looks like a doll! So freaking pretty! *bricked*
For me, KAT-TUN is the only one for me. I used to like Kis-My-Ft2, but the 3/4 thing after they debut pissed me off, so I stopped supporting them after their 2nd singles. I'll only continue supporting them again if the management got rid of that horrible 3/4 placement! It's so freaking unfair to Senga, Yokoo, Miyata & Nika-chan when Tama-chan, Taipi & Kitayama hogs all the limelight! It's Kis-My-Ft2! NOT KiFT feat SMY2 as backdancer! Stupid Iijima!
Eeeeehhh? Are you going to wall again? I'm still not sure if I'm up to it. I really wanted too. But during my long hiatus after I got into KAT-TUN, my graphic tablet broke and I haven't been able to replace it with new ones, as all my moneys goes to KAT-TUN! LOL.... but I at least wants to finish 3-4 of my UraBoku walls ^^ That alone was enough for me before retiring completely ;p
Kenshin movie? HELL YEAH! ^^
btw, did you have twitter or facebook? I actually check in there far more regulary than here ^^;

Hehe, I thought about editing but I have practically no self-discipline. I just do whatever I want whenever I want, I'd be terrible at doing set tasks and meeting deadlines (.___.) It's a shame that you don't wall anymore :( Would love to see you pick up a project or something when you have some time. I miss seeing the old crew and their works here :(
I'm doing it for leisure so it's not a uni course or anything, you just sign up for each semester. If you miss a semester you can always sign up for the next one so you can do it at your own pace, which is good for me cause my work isn't as flexible/routine as I would like >_<
Yea, you have a 2 week time frame to edit a chapter, which you spend nearly everyday from when you receive the chapter to edit it until it's finished XD
Maybe one day if a scan catches my eye I will consider making a new wall, but it has to be something that will motivate me to complete it until its finished, because I have some projects in my folder, that are nearly 2 years old sat there uncompleted due to lack of time or motivation >__> I have been wanting to make a new wall for a while but no scan has appealed to me yet.
But i agree as well about the old crew who have become less active or disappeared altogether recently :/
Ah I see, but it's great that you've decided to learn Japanese during your own time. Maybe one day I will add learning a new language to me list X3

Quote by karaI love vexel, I think there's nothing wrong with using gradients along with vexel, it's far more efficient than trying to create the same thing with 50 extra layers. Pure vexel is kinda fun but also frustrating, esp when PS starts to lag because you have too many layers x_x Yeah I stopped reading it for a while cause the chapters came out so slowly and I got really lost. Picked it up again recently when I found out about the anime though. I don't like how the anime version makes the tips of Nai's hair permanently darker. I've always thought it was due lighting/shadow effects cause the manga pics normally have him with full white hair. It really annoyed me when I was watching the trailer (._.) I just hope they don't pull some random original ending since the manga's not finished yet.
Aww, yeah I'd imagine... seeing all those tourists would make you want to go travelling too >_< But it still sounds like an interesting job since you get to meet lots of very different people from everywhere. Have you met many Australian tourists? :D I'm totally envious of people who are so fluent in a second language. While I can hold basic conversations in a second language, I can only read and write in English :(
Yeah but things always tend to work in the favour of large organisations. It's never their responsibility, it's always yours. I would've loved to have sent them angry emails/letters but they could easily screw you over and make you fail if you annoy them since a lot of the grading can be quite subjective. Free courses sound so awesome, maybe you should ask if it's possible to join. It costs quite a bit to join any class here, if it wasn't for the motivation of getting homework/study done on time so I wouldn't look like a fool the next class, I'd totally buy the textbook and learn by myself.
I feel ya, exam times are x_x The amount of negative feelings, messed up sleeping patterns, tantrums and binge junk food consumption makes me shudder once I'm more sound of mind. Hope you smashed those exams and that you have a good well deserved break. Don't worry about replying late, study and work comes first :)
Hehe, you should come over to Aussie-land next time for vacation :P
Oh yeah, I nearly died shading that Ugetsu Hakua wall with a gazillion separate layers and my PS also started to complain after a while. It was a pain to save and open/close, too. :T But I agree, after I got the hang of it, it was actually fun because it gives you a lot of freedom to play with colors and shapes.
Ah, I haven't seen the trailer yet, I'm really curious how it all looks like. I've only seen some character art on Zerochan, Tsukumo looked so pretty and of course, Gareki is hot, lol. Not sure I would mind Nai's hair tips being darker, as long as they don't butcher the story, yeah. There's nothing worse when makers of the anime totally ignore the main premise of the original and massacre the plot of the manga and ruin the ending with their own version. Kind of like what they did to Kuroshitsuji - up to episode 8, everything was okay and then it all kinda went downhill. I hope they won't do the same to Karneval, too. The only anime ending that was really true to the original was the one of Shiki. That I still haven't watched till the end. xD
Yeah, you sure do meet a lot of interesting people from all over the world working as an animator. Hmm, I don't remember meeting any tourists from Australia although I did talk to a couple from US who asked me about it since they thought it was awesome and wanted to organize something like that in US, too. I think they were from Florida. I saw a lot of Japanese ones, too and always wanted to talk to them but was always too shy and all, wondering if I wouldn't say something wrong or offending if I said something in Japanese, lol.
Well, you can always learn more languages, especially if you have a knack for them. English is practically like my second native language, lol. I used a lot of German and Italian when I was working there but now my Italian is rusty but I could still hold a conversation in German. One woman also taught me some Czech but I forgot most of the words, lol.
Ah, yeah, of course it's never their fault, it's yours. Man, I really loathe people and institutions like that, dunno who they think they are but you do not treat students and people in general like that, especially if the said people are paying for it and enabling you to receive your wage every damn month. *kicks*
Bah, I can't believe I passed those 5 exams last week and then had to study extra for that one I already passed because, apparently, passing that was enough only for a passing grade so if I wanted to higher one, I had to come again. Which is tomorrow. And then I have another big exam the day after. Oh, Uni, how I despise you sometimes. ;__;
Oh, I know a few people from Australia so if I had enough money, I definitely would come and visit you all. I even exchange letter with some of them, lol. It's really nice when you can communicate with people like that who are on the opposite side of the world. If you ever decide to go on a vacation, come to Croatia, too, people usually say it's awesome here, despite the crappy economy and stupid, worthless politicians. xD

Yeah I really enjoy following Aerandria, most of their releases are the sort of stuff I love reading. The staff all seem really fun-loving and they seem like one of the most efficient scanlating groups out there. It's nice to see that you're translating your PS walling skills to scanlating :D I'm studying Japanese atm, one day when/if I become good enough to, I'd love to try translating XD
Yea they are one of the more consistent groups with their releases and always pick up lovely bishie manga to release XD
True, since 'm not an active waller anymore, I thought editing was the next step really for something to replace walling.
Wow, that cool you're learning Japanese, how long is your course? It's one of the languages I would like to learn when I get the time X3

Totally! *hugs* How've you been? What are you into now?
Me? I'm doing fine, like usual ^^ Hahahahaha.... Same old, same old ^^
About that, I've been flailing and fangirling mostly on KAT-TUN (esp Kame-chan &Tat-chan >_<) since 2011. Watching J-drama and such. I rarely watch anime these days, well except if Sakurai Takahiro or Hoshi Souichirou in it. Although I do still read lot's of manga! Ehehehe... my priority had change ever since I got into Johnny's fandom, so... yeah. Missing vectoring greatly tho. But didn't have any motivation to do so ;p Coz I'm too busy flailing kameda! *bricked*
What about you? It's surprising to see you suddenly coming back. I mean, I still check on MT/AP everyday, even after changing fandom ^^;
