21st-Feb-2013 03:43 am - Gintama Primer
cherry blossoms blooming
I first wrote this a few months ago in an email to a friend, because she wanted a primer for Gintama, which is a wildly funny and brilliant series, but extremely difficult to describe. I've emailed it to enough people now that I figured I should just make it into a post.

Note: This is not a complete guide to all of Gintama. This is basically something I think would be helpful if you're trying to figure out if you'll like this series. I think if you watch through all the episodes I suggested and still aren't too fond of it, then it might not be for you. (I'm less confident of saying this about the corresponding manga chapters, because I feel like it takes more reading to get a good sense of the series. ... If that makes sense.) But if you DO like it, you can scroll down to the very bottom for more comprehensive guides.

So if you're interested in trying out this series...

I have never made so many icons so quickly. This is a little scary. Also, making anime icons is still slightly strange and new to me. I mean, they're colored already. Holy shit.


1. 2. 3.

[60] x Code Geass R2 Ep. 1 - 5
[09] x Katekyo Hitman REBORN!
[33] x Stock (includes photography from Michele Constantini and Kamil Vojna)

Well, this is something new. Requested by aleyshav ages and ages ago. If you're reading this, I'm sorry it took so long. AP tests happened. I give you full permission to slap me with a fish. >_>

Going from to .

Am going to collapse soon. Perferably into a comatose state.
1st-Jan-2008 01:33 am - When We Were Young: An Icon Project
cherry blossoms blooming
Months ago, I was suddenly struck by a Brilliant Idea - which I promptly proceeded to ignore because it was too much work and I just didn't want to bother at that moment. Then I got bored.

At any rate, it's very simple.

The Premise: I make one icon per chapter of part one of Naruto, which adds up to 238 icons in the end. (Kakashi Gaiden won't be covered.)

Current Progress: 238/238 (DONE)

A closing note: Half a year, 7 sets, and 238 icons later, it's done. Thank you for all your comments and support. It's been a very fun project. This is goodbye, Naruto fans. ♥

They've been decomposing in my hard drive for ages, but no matter. You know you want to. :D

Since the only way to deal with crazy people is to make no sudden movements and do as told.Collapse )

I haven't been able to icon anything for ages. Anyone want to make a request? :D If you do, though, please provide an image and a general idea of what you want it to look like. I'll take the first 20 if there're actually that many people interested >_>.
