HOLD EVERYTHING

Great news, everyone! “Jaco the Galactic Patrolman” collected edition is set for an English release is January 2015! What’s that you ask? Why, it’s the official DragonBall prequel manga by Akira Toriyama.

Even more exciting, Monday’s issue of Shonen Jump will have the English version of Dragon Ball Minus, the bonus chapter with Goku’s mother in it!!! Yeah. Best news you’ve heard all year.

Now, if only I could decide if I should by the issue now or wait until the whole volume is out… the trials of being a less-than-comfortable-about-finances grad student.

Mini-Post: More FMA

I think a while ago I said I was done with FMA posts on this blog, but what do I know? I’m just a hopeless fangirl that recently dug up this gem from the depths of Tumblr. So I hope you enjoy FMA as much as I do, because there’s more coming. Trust me on this.

Mini-Post: A Question to the World (but mostly Shippers)

A lot of ships I see on Tumblr include homosexual males. Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Spider-Man and Deadpool (this is a thing, right?). Batman and Nightwing. The list goes on . . .

Anyway, I’m noticing a lack of women in this. My question to the world (but mostly Shippers) is thus: Given a television show with two close, main female characters, would they be shipped just as hard as two men in a similar role?

I shall facilitate a discussion in the comments. GO!

Mini Post: Shipping

I’ve admitted something about myself recently: I like bizarre ships. I just can’t bring myself to enjoy the normal ones. I can’t read fanfiction about canon pairings. I wish I could, but I just can’t. It started out with your standard wrong-but-awesome ships. Things like Dramione. But that wasn’t enough. Voldemort/McGonagall. That was it. Ship Damon/Elena? Pfft. Damon/Bonnie. And I really have no idea how the Loki/Sif thing happened, but the Lokasenna only exasperated things. Now, whenever I see two interesting characters who only vaguely interact, I’m all:

And life’s never been better.

(Okay, fine, that’s a lie. I’ve run out of fanfiction to read for some of them and that makes me sad.)

Mini-Post: Morike’s OTP

Last FMA post for a while guys. I promise. But I just want to say that after surfing Tumblr without an official OTP, I finally found one.

That is all.

Mini-Post: Please excuse this INFLUX OF FMA FANART!

First I will reveal my favorite amongst the supremely large selection:

I scoured the internet and could not find the artist. Please help me credit the artist so my conscious may be cleared!

And now I reveal the link to which I have found this fanart. It is from a French blog that I can partially read. It is also exclusively Edwin. You have been warned.

We now resume your regularly scheduled programming.

Mini-Post: Reason to Love Full Metal Alchemist #7

Major Alex Louis Armstrong strips and educates you about the Armstrong Family Heritage as he pounds you with the alchemy techniques passed down the Armstrong line for generations.

These sparkles are also passed down the Armstrong line for GENERATIONS

The rest of the Full Metal Alchemist cast question his methods every time the shirt comes off.

IT IS ALWAYS OFF. WHY IS IT ALWAYS OFF? IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE SOME TYPE OF OBJECTIFICATION? I DON’T EVEN KNOW. JUST LOOK AT THOSE SPARKLES.
