|11:16 pm - In which animanga fandom produces much LOL WOTery|
The world of animanga provided me with much WTFery today. Some of which was good WTFery, but still...
- In April, an excerpt from the 10th Haruhi Suzumiya novel will be published in a Japanese magazine.
Yes, the 10th novel actually appears to be seeing the light of day sometime soon. Wonders never cease.
But where will I go to look for fan translations of it, now the last site got pulled down?
- So, apparently there is an "American Manga" written by Gene Simmons' son (!). Nothing special, right? Well, apparently large chunks of it were inspired, copied and downright traced from a number of notable manga, Bleach most obviously. Cue epic shitstorm.
ETA: Now also on Fandom Wank.
I don't even read Bleach (though I know some people on my flist do), I'm just boggling that he thought he could get away with something that blatant. I mean look at the comparisons. That's not even subtle plaigarising.
In other news, I am attempting to get myself back on a remotely normal sleeping pattern before my classes start up again. Because, well, I fortunately don't have any 9am starts. But there are always morning classes. Joy.
Current Mood: surprised
The prince has got dem eyelashes!!!!!! (which constantly remind me of how CLAMP draws their characters) - but other than the pretty/slightly gay factor I realize I am not particularly attracted to either boy at the moment.
I am, however, pretty certain both will grow on me, and especially Fakir, if I remember what I've read about the story... *totally not being biased because he sounds a bit like Suzaku*
Neko-sensei: YOU. MARRY ME. RIGHT NOW.
Yeah, it's pretty obvious that the creator was a woman, but I was still apprehensive somehow ^^" AHIRU IS THE MOST ADORABLE THING IN THERE.
