Hello world!

Standard

Hey-hey-hoo!

I’m Mei and this is my blog~! Welcome~!

^^” I probably won’t be doing much here, just uploading stuff, since I’m kind of busy myself…

Anyways, this blog contains several things I really like and I want to share like anime, Asian drama series, music I like and voice actors (for whom I have a rather expanded fascination)

よろしくおねがいしま~す!! ^__^

xxMei

I really like having a blog because I want to share the things I like with people! Yay! *too happy*
Okayz, here’s some things you will find on my blog:

Nice Music
Seiyuu (Voice Actors)
Jinsei no Minna
Drawings

Howl and Sophie from Howl’s Moving Castle -> HaruSato

Standard

For the sixth parody, I slightly deviated from my original project idea and let myself be inspired by a couple sketch that did not come from a manga. I really love the tenderness in this drawing and I immediately saved it as to turn into a JnM couple sketch :3

I turned them into Haruhi and Satoshi. HaruSato is a couple that I have not written about a lot yet, but with this sketch I kind of re-realised (xD) how sweet they actually are together. They are like two lost souls that find each other under very coincidental circumstances. I changed their clothes, since they live in Japan and not in some French-inspired European looking fantasy world as made up by Miyazaki Hayao. Also, I love Satoshi’s hair. Do I ever mention how much I love Satoshi? No, I don’t. I love Satoshi :) He’s such a sweetheart actually.

So here you can see the original image versus my version (yes, the original is in colour, but my project is still all about sketches 8D)

parody 6

Umi and Naka from Nosatsu Junkie -> EmiTake

Standard

The fifth drawing I made for this project was based on the ‘first kiss’ moment between Umi and Naka from the (apparently very unknown) manga Nosatsu Junkie or Charming Junkie. This scene was one of the first scenes I had in mind when I started this project, but it took a while before I decided on which JnM couple to choose for the parody.

I turned the couple into Emiko and Takeshi. I’ve been wondering for a long time on how to develop their romantic relationship. Since they’re childhood friends, they’ve always been kind of like a Lovely Complex-inspired comedy duo (I also based their lengths on LoveCom orz) so I don’t see them becoming all lovey-dovey and cheesy. Umi and Naka are a couple who are also bickering all the time, and this kiss kind of came as a result of a fight, so I thought that was kind of suitable for EmiTake as well. I had a bit of difficulty drawing the clothes, since the original image shows a lot of vague lines – I can’t even see what part is what there, so I kind of focused more on the hands and faces. Since Emiko is taller than Takeshi, I reckoned it would be easier for him to kiss her when she was sitting, or, in this case – sitting while being pressed against the wall.

So here you can see the original image versus my version (don’t criticize the always and ever amateur me too much please 8D)

Try Again

Standard

10. Try Again

Because I don’t want to give in to those eyes who look like they are about to collapse
In the dazzling light that appears sometimes
I have to grasp the meaning of the detour
that is common sense in the adult world

Don’t be sad, remember the swaying future
From the beginning

For everyone comes a day where they will be able to happily and merrily
meet again for a brilliant moment
To escape from the slump one more time
Do the things you want right now!
Open yourself up without thinking too much

When you’re not able to acknowledge the present society
the path that was protected also gets shut off, but
let’s try and imagine the future we drew
and don’t long for fastforwarded dreams

While there is meaning in a moment of peacefulness
Is it okay to take it easy?

I proceed calmly without forgetting the excitement
It’s not good to always spend your days as carefree as ever, but
it is good to put your effort to the test
Drop the things you can’t do!
If it’s one by one, you can make it clear

It’s something you decided on yourself, so you can’t give up the things you started now
Why not just try doing it?

This time, a day will come where people will be able to meet again
with a cheerful sensation that blows away the loneliness too
To escape from the slump one more time
Do the things you want right now!
Open yourself up without thinking too much

Aoi Iro

Standard

9. Aoi Iro

Let’s break the globe and dye the world in a new colour
Like in a fairytale land, let’s just creatively do dream-like stuff!

Because when I’m with you, I can overcome the invincible
Let’s be together, oh yeah, and jump higher than usual!

Maybe, we blue ones are
Baby, the best! Look, we’re dazzling
Maybe, in a society without moral
The reasons for you to smile will increase
Always, I can put rainbow here now!

Everybody longs for
A dictionary of love, you know?
Even this me sometimes
wants to cling to someone

If you give me a mischievous look and stroke my hair
My heart would squeeze, oh yeah, is it okay if it does?

Maybe, the blue colour melted in the sky
Baby, we don’t need words like ‘impossible’
Maybe, I want to entrust all of me
To your encouraging voice and behaviour
I sing, so happy songs just for you!

My skirt flutters lightly, yes,
let’s treasure the steps we take
Let’s proceed, ready, forever and ever…

Maybe, we blue ones are
Baby, the best! Look, we’re dazzling
Maybe, everyone is the same,
following individual feelings of wanting to do something
I sing, so happy songs, it’s OK?

Seven

Standard

8. SEVEN

A dream I had one day
was about a single swaying drop
in a wish that didn’t reach and disappeared in the white moon

Who is that lonesome smile longing for?
These feelings tear my chest apart, it’s too much to hide

The melody of inversion that dances mysteriously, ah…

I am here to meet you
Illuminating the way of the distant seven luminaries
Don’t stop me
I want to sing my one and only love
as if calling your name

What is that sudden behaviour longing for?
The things except for words that need to be conveyed, please entrust only me

I want to touch you, just for a moment, ah…

I take your hand and start running
If I can get a little bit closer to where your wounds keep increasing
The world I desire
Has time without answers
And even if it’s painful, I don’t need anything else

In the sky that is nowhere to be found, guide me with your attractiveness, ah…

I am here to meet you
Illuminating the way of the distant seven luminaries
Don’t stop me
I want to sing my one and only love
as if calling your name

 

Last Scene

Standard

7. Last Scene

I understand that you pick up a friend’s counsel, but
I still haven’t taken off my blindfold

Once, surely, we loved each other, that someone who I don’t know
Tonight, you are still not able to appear in my memories

Your awkward kindness that told a too obvious lies
sends snow into my heart like fluttering cherry blossoms

I turn back now and chase your back because I don’t want to let you be bothered
Embrace me in my dreams, I want you to deceive me

The movies, songs and that town that you loved
Everything is lined up in my chest and I still can’t throw them away

We started walking together underneath that cold sky
Not lying up until the warmth of when we held hands

I want you to turn around now and look for my back in the crowd of people, but
I can’t show you any more tears, I will turn the next corner

I knew from the beginning that there would come an end to our love, but
Would something have changed if we did just one day over again?

I turn back now and chase your back because I don’t want to let you be bothered
Embrace me in my dreams, I want you to deceive me

The truth is that, even now, I want you to turn around and look for my back in the crowd of people, but
I can’t show you any more tears, I will turn the next corner

That’s the last thing I can do…

 

First Calendar

Standard

6. First Calender

That back shot of yours I became familiar with
Feeling embarrassed for waiting one second before calling out to you
Is it like the title ‘lovers’ is written down somewhere?
I stand up straighter than usual

Crossing over a long period of being friends,
What remains is a certain ‘I love you’

Is it okay if I love you?
From now on as well, from now on forever
I will find all your good points for you
Let’s go buy a new calender
Let’s fill it in together
Everyday is a memorable day
Just now, our hands connected
I’m glad you are here

‘From when did you like me?’
If I would have to answer a teasing question like that
It would be about the moment
That I started liking you as I started liking my name each time you called it

Next week, I will tell my friends
Will they be surprised? Or will they say ‘finally’?

I want to love you
Because I will work hard and become beautiful
I will be by your side tomorrow and the day after that, okay?
Let’s go buy a new calendar
Let’s fill in our future
So that every page we turn will be a happy day
We somehow made eye connect
And there was a smile

Is it okay if I love you?
From now on as well, from now on forever
I will find all your good points for you
Let’s go buy a new calender
Let’s fill it in together
Everyday is a memorable day
Our hands connected once again
I’m glad you are here
