“Throwback Goodness”

I accidentally won Throwback Thursday with one picture. I took this one just to show that I was drinking the Hi-C Ecto Cooler, not realizing that it was Throwback Thursday. I saved them intentionally for ‘a better time’ and yeah… so what’s all so throwback in my photo, and how sad does it make me about my life?

Well, The Little Mermaid poster, Sailor Moon Wall Scroll, Simpsons T-Shirt hanging up, No One Lives Forever PC box, Macha from Dot Hack, a little bit of red from my Neo Geo marquee, and that’s about it I suppose, as you can very barely see the power ranger helmets behind my binder that a high school student would have. OH SNAP! Blue Ranger is totally visible but hidden! MLP Fan art doesn’t count nor does Justice League calendar.

So yeah… living in the past because Donald Trump’s Presidency starts tomorrow? Seriously, be safe everyone.

Waifu so Strong!

02-18_-_susan_strong-mp4This Waifu Wednesday is all about Susan Strong from Adventure Time. A large part of Susan’s allure is that her true nature is shrouded in mystery. Is she human? If so, is she into Fin? How is she so freakishly strong?

We later learn *spoilers* about Susan’s true *spoilers* in the last two episodes of season 7 of  Adventure Time. Susan turns out to have a *spoilers* on her *spoilers*! Amazing right?

s3e14_susan_finn_you_stayI really like Susan, and I hope we so much more of her. She is strong but gentle at the same time. Simple, but not, ya know? You want to protect her, but it’s totally cool if she protects you instead… in other words, the perfect waifu for this Waifu Wednesday!

Tutorial Tuesday

I like art, and thus when I do look for tutorials, SURPRISE, they end up being something art-based. Here are a few ones that I found below!
ABrandonToThePast – How To Make Pokemon Perler Art!

Art ala Carte – How to draw a cartoon female head

Elise G. – How to draw adventure time style

LaurelRayeArt – Draw Yourself Adventure Time Style! Female

LaurelRayeArt – Draw Yourself Adventure Time Style! Male

That’s it for today’s tutorials. Maybe next time I will find some tutorials from, well.. god knows where (probably Youtube).

Later!

 

What to do on a pointless Sunday

mccollection.pngHalo Master Chief Collection – This game is buggy, and a few times it thought hat I lost internet or that my controller had lost signal, and I ended up having to try and restart the game. I said try because sometimes I had to restart the system even a few times until I gave up and unplugged the system from the wall. Their whole suspend mode is a great feature until it is not. That being said, playing Halo 1, 2, and 3 is great with new visuals for 1 and 2 going on alongside the original games at the same time, and hey… they give you Halo 4 for free despite you not really wanting to play it again… how… nice… of… them?

Here’s a cartoon to watch that I found randomly by youtuber Joanna Davidovich?

And… that’s all I’ve got to keep busy with today while Chick-fil-a is closed. I dunno… everyone could always go and drive aimlessly suggesting restaurants they could go, and end up settling for a fast food restaurant that is slightly farther than the establishment that’s closer to you. That’s… something… right?

 

 

 

Ningyo no Ouji-sama – Mermaid Prince

009There are certain things in life where you have to pray to the manga gods that things don’t get too gay. Maybe it’s say, Gravitation. The art and music was great, so maybe if it just doesn’t get too uncomfortable for you… right? Or Ghost! Eerie Queerie!. That was also a good Shonen Ai that I almost finished.

Well, it’s happened again. This time, it is a manga called Ningyo no Ouji-sama. I discovered this… 2009? err… 2014? manga by Kazumi Yuana quite accidentally.

This is a manga about a mermaid who prays to god to become a human so she can find love. Well… God apparently has a sense of humor, as he turns her into a human male.

088

I have not understood a word of what I’ve seen from this manga, but thus far I am loving it!! That being said… it seems to be going shonen ai quite a bit..

I found this comic on a site that has a lot of 18+ comics on it, so I was pins and needles “Will it go full yaoi?! Will I get too uncomfortable to continue reading this comic?” Well, I looked at quite a bit of it, and unless there is a lot of text based sexual content I’m not picking up on, I think I might be safe with Ningyo no Ouji-sama… for a little while.

007Like Ranma from Ranma 1/2, the mermaid can transform from her female finned form to bishonen form using water… or rather, a lack of water for her male form. She typically uses a bath tub for her times as a mermaid, and so there is some good old fashioned heterosexual fan service going on in what could be a shonen ai manga.

I have read people arguing if this comic is shoujo or not, considering that it’s a romance and the main character started out female. Unlike Ranma though, most of the time the character is a guy… so it’s really hard to say which genre it fits into!

081While I was preparing this article, I read on Manga Fox that this comic has been licensed so it wasn’t available to read online there. I attempted to find who had picked it up, but I have yet the who or where to buy it legitimately yet. If anyone knows, please pass this information on to me!

Hopefully this is actually picked up by an North American company, as it seems quite promising. I’m not sure if there are only 2 volumes of it or not though, as online I have yet to see more than that.

Anyways, happy confusing Mer-Monday everyone!

Gargoyles commercials

I miss Gargoyles. A Lot. Apparently one of the reasons it was canceled is because of… toy sales? Wow. Super lame. They didn’t have a lot of great toys though. I thought it would be cool on Throwback Thursday to look at some of the commercials.

Talking about toy sales, here is a guy who reviewed how crappy the toy selection for this series was.

Some more toys, this time from Burger King. I had some of these!

There were more toys than that guy gave credit for

Apparently, there was a Robot Chicken short with two of the toys… *sigh*

Maybe Disney can sell Gargoyles to Marvel or something? Pretty Please? Anyways, Happy Throwback Thursday everyone!
