Anime from childhood: Blue Dragon

Do you remember watching Digimon or Pokemon as a kid? Well, I'm a teenager and I still love watching Digimon from time to time. It brings back so many memories......I remember I used to collect Yu-gi-oh cards. I think I have them anymore.....I'm quite sad...... T_T
Sailor moon and Hamtaro takes me wayyy, that made me sound  old. :D
Blue dragon is fairly new but still makes me feel old whenever I watch it! I love this anime so much!!

I love watching this anime! I think when I was in grade 6 or something, I watched it. I remember watching Blue Dragon when I was just flipping through channels on my T.V until I saw the Blue Dragon anime. I didn't know what episode I was on and then, I was like, "must watch this online!". I have to watch Blue Dragon again! Brings so much memories...........I wanna play the game!

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 25: When you hear Easter do you think of the holiday or Shugo Chara?

Sorry guys! I was totally tired from going to the city last night. Road trips are always fun with friends! I had so much at the mall! My top things that I had to get was books, clothes and food. I got payed on Friday so I was extremely happy about that. I didn't expect that I would be going around with three other people. Man, we went to all sorts of places! My main partner was a makeup freak. The other two were book freaks like me. I'm not much for makeup but my partner made me think about it alot over the weekend. I just started putting eyeliner and mascara this year because well, I have a low self esteem and people always mistake my age. I'm in the third year of highschool and people mistake me for a grade seven, eight or nine kid. Do I seriously look that young?? Sigh...........

The interesting thing was, when I started putting makeup on in front of my younger friends (grades 6-8) they asked me and my main partner to give them makeovers. Being the artistic person I am, I was up for it. Makeup is a type of art! I think its cool! My little friends asked if I have done makeovers before and I said no. They were quite surprised and they were like, "You're like a pro!".

That made me really happy! :) Maybe I should be a makeup artist?

I bought two books: The Betrayal Knows my Name (Uraboku!) Volume 3 and Viewfinder (yaoi....) Volume 2. I was extremely happy when I found that manga in the Comic book store. I was like, "WAHHH!". My shopping buddies were like, 0 _ 0. "Calm down Ro!" (Ro is my nickname in real life...) I was just so happy! Viewfinder is so hot and extremely amazing that I was happy that it is getting published here.


I also bought two pairs of jeans (they were on sale!), a cute blue sweater and (my friend made me) powder for my face at the makeup store. The makeup there was beautiful.............but expensive! It wasn't worth it!

Back to the challenge! (Man, I keep talking!) I actually think about the holiday to be perfectly honest. When it comes to the eggs or something, I think about Shugo Chara. It's interesting. I wish I had a shugo chara!

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 24: Do you have a mask/fake personality that you use in front of most people like Amu?

Personally, I kinda do and don't. Going through highschool is difficult but I just act like myself because well, I don't care what other people think! I sometimes wear a mask at home and I feel like I can't be who I am at home. At school, I feel like I'm free and I can do what I like.

If you are that type of person who likes to wear a mask, you should be yourself. It's not good to be someone else. No one will know the real you. Who cares what society thinks? It's you against the world. What's the point of living your life if you just act like somebody else? You only live once. YOLO! Or............YODO! You only die once! ^_^ Anyways, I have to head out now, I'm in a rush! I'll talk to you guys later!

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 23: Ever find yourself carrying your bag over your shoulder like Amu?

Yep! I have several times! I feel like I'm just flying through this challenge! :)


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 22: Do you have any songs from the anime on your mp3?

Yes!!!! I have quite a bit!! I think I have time to post the one song on have to listen to it! It's called, Honto no Jibun by Buono! It's the ending song of Shugo chara! I have to get more songs on my Ipod (I don't have an mp3....)


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 21: Do you ever make any fanart?

No...........I don't. Even if I did, I wouldn't post them on my blog because my scanner is broken! :(  Sigh...........such a waste of a post of saying that one sentence but whatever! Plus, I can't post anybodies fanart on my blog because thats just like copyright and such.


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 20: Which character would you cosplay as?

I don't know!!!!!!! I always wanted to cosplay but.........I never know which character to cosplay as! It's so hard.........I don't know!!!!!!!!!!! While I's some pretty good cosplayers!

Ok, I don't know. I'm sorry, I have failed!


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 19: Do you see yourself in one of the characters? (Like, do any remind you of yourself?)

As a matter of fact, yes! Amu does remind me of myself at times. I can be stubborn and I have many things I want to be when I grow up. I'm not entirely sure about it yet. Sometimes I act like someone totally different and then, I have moments where I act like I normally do. Of course, I don't do that as often anymore because I don't care what other people think of me when I be myself.


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 18: Ever quote the anime? be perfectly honest, I don't! I do remember quite of quotes though. It's awesome! Here's some of my favorite quotes! I got them from here...........of course, I would'nt have remembered them all!

Ikuto: “You know, drinking milk doesn't make your boobs get any bigger.”

Ikuto “I'll definitely make you fall in love with me. So prepare yourself.” 

Volume 7 was probably my favorite volume of Shugo Chara! :)

Amu: “Whoa! Hey, what are you doing?"
Ikuto: I'm attaching myself to you. Because I'm a kid. Spoil me.”

Amu: “You're like a rebellious child!"
Ikuto: "Huh?"
Amu: "You always treat me like a kid, but you're a kid yourself!” 

People I can't remember who said these...........

“Just so you know... Even if I don't break it... alot of people break their own Egg. All those adults walking around with tired faces... they've thrown away the "person they want to be.” 

Almost there? Here's part of the challenge!

Day 16- What if you woke up in Shugo Chara world.
Day 17- Can you do Bala-balance?
Day 18- Ever quote the anime?
Day 19- Do you see yourself in one of the characters? (Like, do any remind you of yourself?)
Day 20- Which character would you cosplay as?
Day 21- Do you ever make any fanart?
Day 22- Do you have any songs from the anime on your mp3?
Day 23- Ever find yourself carrying your bag over your shoulder like Amu?
Day 24- Do you have a mask/fake personality that you use in front of most people like Amu?
Day 25- When you hear Easter do you think of the holiday or Shugo Chara?


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 17: Can you do Bala-balance?

I feel like a total failure but whatever. I'm (hopefully) doing better than some people. I have so much homework on my hands. I'm sorry guys, I have failed you! > x < I have mostly have Physics, Math (totally failing it right now......) and French (100% buddy!) homework. Today, I don't really have any homework because I finished it all at school. I just need to pack for a Church retreat to the city! I'm so excited!

Oh! My band has decided to go to Disney Land instead of Boston. I'm sooooooooo happy!! Disney Land was cheaper, more things to do there and just more fun! I can't wait! I have never been to Disney Land!!!! :)

Anyways, I unfortunately can't do Bala-balance. I can probably get the gist of it, but not a perfect pose. Rima will get mad at me! ^_^

Here's a short and quick manga recommendation. Sorry if it's bad. I'm kinda in a rush to update my challenge!

Title: The Substitute Count Adventure, Migawari Hakusaku no Bouken
Author: Seike Mimori and (Art) Shibata Isuzu
Genres: Romance, Comedy, Gender Bender, Action, Shojo, Drama
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: ( Mireille is the daughter of a bakery owner and her twin brother Fredrick was adopted into another family when they were kids but they remained in contact with each other by sending letters to each other. One day a letter from her brother said he was in love with another man's woman. She replied, provoking him to be a man and claim the woman as his. Two months later, a beautiful young man named Richard, claiming to be a messenger from her twin brother Fred, visits and tells her "I've come for you." When the bewildered Mireille resists, he proceeds to kidnap her! She learns that Fred has run and eloped with the crown prince's fiance and now, it is now her responsibility to impersonate Fred who was the former Count of Bernhardt!

The art is cute and amazing! The storyline makes me laugh really hard and I want the chapters to come out faster! It's a nice quick read and if you ever have the time, try reading this manga! It will cheer you up when your down.

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 16: What if you woke up in Shugo Chara world

Again, that would be soooooooooooo cool! I wonder what kind of Shugo Chara I would would be neat! The Shugo Chara world looks so magical............I want to go there! I'm sorry I haven't posted yesterday...........I had a math test to study for. I know, its a math test but hey, I'm so bad at math I'm not even joking!

Here are some manga's that I read after I came home from work. I have quite a bit of French studying to do but that can wait.

Title: 1001 Knights, 1001, Arabian Nights
Author: Sugisaki Yukiru (D.N Angel) I hope she finishes this one.............
Genres: Romance, Fantasy, Action, Adventure, Drama, Shojo
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen

Summary: From Fallen Syndicate:

A tale of mystery and magic. Naito and Yuki Fuka are twin brothers with very different personalities. While Naito is elegant and good in school, Yuki is athletic and often winds up in fights. Despite this, they maintain a close relationship. When their father turns up missing, both must travel to Dubai in search of him. A mysterious peddler has other plans though, as the twins soon find themselves in the word of One Thousand and One Nights.

SERIOUSLY?! This mangaka can't finish D.N Angel............and she decides to make another manga? How weird.........sigh. I just wish she would finish D.N Angel first! The next chapter of 1001 Knights is coming out...............hopefully on September 24th. D.N Angel is one of the oldest manga (I think it came out in 1999. I might be wrong! Too lazy to look up the date) she has done and she isn't done the stinking manga. This mangaka is going to drive me up the wall!

Anyways, I was quite happy (and a bit angry) when I found out that Yukiru Sagisaki had another manga out. I was excited because her art is always amazing. The guys are so hot!!!!!!!! It has a mix of Shonen and sometimes Shojo to it...............its awesome! I was angry because she should have given us, D.N Angel fans a new chapter of D.N Angel. The last one came................A LONG TIME AGO! This is making me insane! > x <

The storyline is always different. However, I enjoy reading 1001. The storyline is just getting started and I'm loving it. So much suspense! I have a feeling it might be a shonen-ai for some odd reason but thats just a hunch judging by the first chapter.

Title: Double Baby
Author: Fujio Nami
Genres: Comedy, Romance, Shojo, School life, Drama
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: From Chibi Manga:

One day, Mei saw a little boy calling the coolest guy of her class, Ogihara, "to-chan". Does he have already a son?! Plus that boy became attached to Mei, so Ogihara had to ask her to do baby-sitting with him after school!

Then, Mei discover that baby-sitting is funnier than she thought. But...what is that strange feeling?!

Sigh. I enjoyed this manga but why does it feel the same like every shojo manga out there? Anyways, the storyline and art is cute but you also have your typical shojo girl and guy. Are mangaka's running out of ideas?

Sorry guys, this post was sorta depressing but its kinda true of what I've said. I have work extremely early in the morning so............good night! :)

Happy Birthday to my Bestie Estelle!!!!!!!!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!! > ^ < For those who don't know, my best friend is Estelle who also happens to have a blog just like me! Of course its on different things but hey, I'd say her blog is pretty awesome. Check it out! :)

Anyways, I would love to tell all my faithful viewers about my awesome and beautiful best friend. I know that you don't care but hey, I just want to get my message to my buddie.

Awesome Death Note Cake I found on the internet!

Estelle I have known you for..................four......five years? I think I was in grade six or seven. I can't remember when I first met you.....I'm pretty sure you do. I think I was on the bus with my pink coat (I hated that coat to be honest....) and we suddenly started talking about manga. I don't know, I think you talked to me. I have bad memory. I remember you telling me about Fruits Baskets. Too be perfectly honest, you were the one that got my into manga and such. It was awesome! :D Without you, I don't know if I can be the person I am today.

I know I sound cheesy but its true. You met Adeah because of me and it was the manga that brought us together! :D We are all still best friends to this day.........that makes me so happy!

Just a random picture.......... :)

Estelle, you are the smartest person I know. Tu est tres intellegent! (Sorry if I totally killed that sentence) Where would I be without my Math/Science buddie? Even though you are one year older than me, you seem to remember your stuff very well. I'm jealous! Thanks for all the math help! Anyways, you are naturally pretty! Who needs makeup? You play tons of instruments (I think I lost count) and its always fun to listen to your awesome poems and story ideas when we skype. I love to draw for you and it makes me happy that you end up loving my drawings. Even if they suck.

I will flash you with beautiful, hot and sexy men!!!!!!!!!!!!! MWAHAHAH!!!!

Haha............... :) Ikuto~!!! //^_^// (Anime: Shugo Chara)
..................I swear this isn't a yaoi.........(Anime: Hakuouki)

Well, aren't you fine? (Anime: Hakuouki)
Anime: Hakuouki

I shall end the pictures before they get out of hand............

I miss hanging out with you the most. I hope I get to see you before you graduate. It would suck not seeing or talking to you in two years! You don't have to go to University right away...........visit me first! Spending three nights each year at your grandma's house isn't enough!!! (I love your grandparents by the way, I feel like I'm their adopted grandchild :)

Forgive me for not being at your birthday party or whatever. I'm there in spirit. Shoot me an email! I really need to get you a birthday present when I head over to the city. I'm not just going to give you drawings. Drawings aren't enough to express how much I owe you! It makes me extremely happy whenever I go over to my manga collection............over half of it comes from you! It sorta makes me feel bad...........I will pay you back!! Someday!!

Here's a birthday song for you! I dance to this song all the time!!!!! Hopefully its the same for you!

8人合唱】 Shake it! 【Happy ★ Birthday ★ Fruu】 +mp3

English translation...............I can't find it!!!!!!!!!! So far I've found video's with the translations but..........I don't feel like typing out the whole entire thing! I'll just post the video with the English translation! Here's the link........the video decided not to post. Hopefully you watch it!

Also, you have to finish watching You're Beautiful! This is going to drive me up the wall!


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 15: What if you woke up tomorrow with a Guardian Chara’s egg (or 3 eggs) underneath you?

That would be sooooooooooooo cool!!! I wonder what my Shugo Chara would look like? I aspire to be many things.............I know I would have at least two shugo chara eggs with me. It would be fun to character change and transform just like the manga! I feel like a kid..............but who cares! My mind is in a different world. My reaction would probably be when Amu first found eggs in her bed. Or maybe when Amu and the gang saw Tadase wearing a skirt. Sorry, spoiler right there but whatever.

Possible reactions...........

And then..................
WAH!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm totally ignoring my math homework right now. I don't care. I need a break from math! My brain is going to explode!

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 14: Have you ever written or read a FanFic of SC

Yes, yes I have read TONS of Shugo Chara Fanfictions! I'll try to remember them all.........but I'm reading this one about Miki and Kiseki! :) It's awesome! You have to try to read it! It's pretty well written. I respect people who can write Fanfictions. Totally amazing! (awesome~!!)

So far that's all I can remember. I actually have to look through my drawers and notebooks to find my notes and such. But I hope you try reading them! They are pretty good! :D


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 13: Favorite Chara Egg

I have no idea! All the eggs I've seen are extremely cool! Some of them are characters I want to be when I grow up. It's cool! Miki is a character I want be! However..........there are many other chara's I love because their characters are just so interesting! But for now, I'll pick Miki. I know she's plain but shes a character I want to achieve. I love to draw but I don't have the confidence in my drawings.

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 12: Nadeshiko or Nagihiko?

Hmm..............................I personally like Nagihiko better. I'm sorry. Nadeshiko is an awesome friend but I favor his true man side. I'm sorry if I'm spoiling things for you guys, but seriously, you have to finish reading/watching the manga/anime!

I just love guys..................Nagihiko is so cool! I love his Shugo Chara! :)


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 10+11: Favorite Chara Change + Favorite Character Transformation

I feel like I have failed you guys.............oh well. School has gotten in the way! I have no time to blog on the weekends, let alone the weekdays. Today is just an exception because I don't get certain questions on my math homework and I'm pretty sure we are going to go over them in class tomorrow so yeah. As for Physics, I finished it at school. I also got my school pictures! I actually look pretty! Wow............. :)

I love all character changes! They are always so amusing! Maybe Nadeshiko's is the most funny..........or Tadase', so many to chose from! So funny!!!

Anyways, my favorite Chara transformations would probably be Ikuto's Black Lynx (so sexy~!), Nagihiko's Beat Jumper (so cool!!!), or Amu's Amulet Spade. I don't know..........there are so many cool and special character changes! Each are so cool and unique in their own way. I can't choose!

Black Lynx (Ikuto)
Beat Jumper (Nagihiko)
Amulet Spade (Amu)
All Shugo Chara transformations!

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 9: Favorite Pairing

So busy at school! I got so much math homework.............I think I'm going to die!!! God help me................there is so much happening at school. You know, the drama life of a teenager. Man, I have this friend who just get surrounded by drama, its not even funny. I walk down the hallway with her and seriously, I think I might even be dragged into it it's scary.

Anyways, my favorite pairing would probably be Amuto!!! So cute!!!! I really miss them though.........I wish Peach-pit made a better ending! T_T

Amu and Ikuto funny moment! :)

Shugo Chara Challenge Day 7-8: Favorite Opening + Ending

I don't know!!! I have soo many!! Let me start with the Openings.....

Shugo Chara Opening 2: Minna Daisuki

Shugo Chara Doki! Opening 1: Minna no Tamago
Shugo Chara Doki Opening 4: School Days

For some reason people think Minna no Tamago is the third opening song of Doki but its not! It's the first!! Weird..............anyways, this song makes me want to dance! This song has been in my head for so long but now, its stuck in my head again! Pyon.....pyon....fumu fumu yay yay! > x <

My next favorite song is from Shugo Chara Party! Party time is my favorite out of all the Shugo Chara songs! If you don't like it, thats too bad for you. I love Party time! It makes me dance!

Shugo Chara Party (Actual) Opening 1: Party Time!

Shugo Chara Party Opening 1: Watashi no Tamago

Day 8: Favorite ending! I don't know..........

Shugo Chara Ending 3: Kiss Kiss Kiss

Shugo Chara Doki Ending 3: My Boy


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 6: Favorite Season

I honestly don't know!! I peronsonally love the First one and Doki. I'm not sure if I like Party because it doesn't show very much of the actual Shugo Chara show. I love the scene where Ikuto calls Amu! It's so funny! Sorry if I mistook this episode with another because well, I like to jumble episodes. Anyways, I love the first and doki seasons! They are awesome!

Ikuto gets a new outfit................many cool things just happen in Doki! :)


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 5: Tadamu, Kukamu, Amuto, NagihikoxAmu or KairixAmu?

*Major spoilers if haven't watched/read Shugo Chara. Read at own risk!*

I'm sorry but I'm standing on Amuto on this one! I will admit that Tadamu, NagihikioxAmu and KairixAmu was cute but AMUTO ALL THE WAY! Shugo Chara fans out there that read/watched the entire manga/anime (SPOILERS!!! Turn back if you don't want to hear it!) that Ikuto kissed Amu on the cheek! It was so cute~!!!!!! Come on, on the lips please? The reason why I didn't inclue Kukai and Amu as a pair because the manga, Kukai kisses Utau! He belongs with her!

Amuto!!! <3
Scenes that make me melt, happy, cry, blush and fangirl like crazy. I can't remember what chapter they were................oh well. Time to re-read this series again!
Classic Ice cream funny! > x <

Kukai and Utau!

AHHH!!!!! 0////0


Shugo Chara Challenge Day 4: Favorite Chara

I know I'm such a failure. I have school! School is mandatory! Anyways, it's so weird! Several of my friends my friend group has (or had) a birthday this month! Today is my great friend, Jen's birthday! You probably would know her by her blog, Inside my head. Yesterday was my good buddy, Destiny's birthday. She has a twin so it was quite interesting saying happy birthday to both of them. Also, we have a German exhange student named Jenny. I know, the german exchange students name is similar to Jen's! Jen just decided to change her name to Jen before Jenny came. It's a bit confusing because when I call Jenny (exchange student), Jen would just shift or something.

Anyways, I would just like to say, Happy Birthday to my best friend Jen! :D She's a Big Bang Theory fan! Here's some bloopers just for you! ^_^ BAZINGA! Haha!

The Big Bang Theory Season 4 Bloopers

Anyways, my favorite Chara would probably be Miki, Yoru or Kiseki because he is soo funny! Kiseki is like, "My subjects!!! MWAHAH!!" Sigh..............Kiseki is brilliant! I don't know who to pick..............I like Miki because she has a color scheme of blue and an artist. I like Yoru because of his cat-like personality. I like Kiseki because of his interesting personality.


Ikuto.............why do you have to be so hot?!? I love his character change with Yoru! So hot!!! :)
