Instances of the Zodiac in Anime & Manga

Before I get to doing ep 3 of Samurai Flamenco (ep 2 is queued already and ep 1 is on the tag already) I want to show you a little something done with the help of astrolovecosmos…the title says it all. By ‘instances’, I mean examples of their personality through how they’d act in certain situations or being called out on for certain aspects of their personality.

I’ve tried to make it out of context but hey, it’s better if you were to read the series for yourselves.

I’ve been churning out wallpapers of my own volition, but do remember my askbox is always open for requests, here and for my other blogs. (Do note these wallpapers I’ve produced have all been made from premade stuff…and I don’t do recolours often.) Angelsdemonsnthings is in a rather dire situation, as it is an askblog that has only ever received one ask, so do keep that in mind.

Feedback question: Are the alternate links for the wallpapers useful?

…Fine, schmuck bait: If anyone answers the question above I will give you one wallpaper, but if anyone drops an ask into angelsdemonsnthings’s askbox before Nov.1st AEDT then I will give three, not including the one I would have used for the question above.

12 crucial Tumblr tricks you probably don’t know

areyousuretonightsadangernight:

bookshop:

1) Know your limits.

  • The tag limit. Only the first 5 tags you put in a post are searchable.
  • The search limit. Only the first 200 posts under a tag show up when you search that tag.
  • The posting limit. You can post or reblog no more than 250 posts a day, and only 75 of them can be photos. The day ends at midnight EST.
  • The friending limit. As many people discovered during the Mishapocalypse, you can only friend between 250-300 people on Tumblr in a day.
  • The queue limit. The queue can only hold 300 posts at one time.
  • The ask limit. You can only send 10 asks within a single hour, and only 5 of them can be anonymous.

2) Keep Tumblr from truncating long text posts.

Tumblr’s default behavior when reblogging long text posts is to reblog them as links instead. To make sure long posts get reblogged as text—or to truncate them if you only want to link to a shorter text post—go to the top right corner of the post and click the icon next to your settings. The drop-down menu will give you the option to change the format of the post. If you have a text post, clicking “Reblog as text” will retain the text of the post up until its original “read more” line.

3) You don’t need to insert a blank .gif at the bottom of your photosets in order to show full-sized photos. There’s already a workaround for this. Just go to your settings, select the Dashboard, and click “show full-size photos.”

4) Allow anyone to reply to any of your posts directly from the dash. For reasons no one can fathom, replying to people on Tumblr is a tricky thing. Sometimes you can’t reply until you’ve had someone friended longer than two weeks. Sometimes you can’t reply with photos. It’s a strange world. But one thing is certain: sticking a “?” in your post will cause the message, “Let people answer this” to appear. Check the box and profit.

5) tumblr.com/photos lets you see a mosaic of photos on your dash. Try it and be amazed.

6) Filter your dash by type by using “/show/[mediatype]”. Appending “/show/text” to tumblr.com will let you see only the text posts on your dash. This also works for photos, links, quotes, audio, chats, and videos.

Sometimes you can’t reply with photos

This is not correct. You can always reply with photos, but it’s up to the OP to allow it. Here’s how:

How to allow photo replies

My example here uses a photo post but this is true for any type of post

When creating your post, click the cog in the upper right hand corner and a pop-up will appear to allow for more post customization. Click “Let people photo reply.” Now photos can be used to reply to posts.

Checked in at ANN only to find the Crunchyroll stuff is on a roll! Gugure Kokkuri-san and When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace are my two picks for the season because they seem to be sleeper hit comedies…and the former has a Tomoe (Kamisama Kiss) lookalike + bishonen that kinda looks like Sebastian Michaelis.

I like to foray into practically any part of the fandom I can - here’s a redraw, but it’s just pencil on scrap paper (freehand). The original pic is from ep 4.
P.S. Another aspect of the fandom is cosplay…I’m not a serious cosplayer, but have you seen someone wearing something close to Hazama’s outfit from episode 2, blue jacket/beige shorts/black spotted silk shirt/orange shirt? (I may have had the jacket tied around my waist at one point.) That’s probably me.

After a lot of scrolling through episode 16 I finally managed to snag the thing I thought was a hallucination but turns out to be the Japanese episode title (English = ‘Wandering Hero’)!

So, can anyone show me the Japanese titles for the rest of the episodes? Not only do I want to look at them (to brush up on my Jap) but I want to compare them to the English fonts people use to translate ‘em. It’s also interesting to note it’s a calligraphic script like the kind on that painting/ink drawing of Samurai Flamenco Masayoshi has…

Update: Two more…

'Document[ary]! We are the Flamengers!' (ep 12)

'Imitation Justice' (ep 15, slightly edited due to subs)

dudewithabow:

after you’ve been through like a string of fandoms and you’ve decided your favourite character/s for each one, there will come a day when you will list all your faves from each fandom side by side and look at them carefully and realise

you have a type

I’ve realised that already. Male characters are a combination of:

  • tall, longhaired, rather slim and handsome (Baritone, Haruka etc.)
  • awkward cute guys (Masayoshi Hazama, Konoha etc.)
  • guys that can kick ass in what they do and still manage to be chivalrous (Kaito Kid, Saguru Hakuba etc.)
  • …or complete outliers of all of those categories (Shinichi Kudo)

Female characters tend to be magical girls or ones that have an ethic similar to that third dot point…except Sumi Ishihara who fits with the fourth dot point, since I find I can relate to her.

A sample of stuff, mostly Samurai Flamenco. “Being a hero is harder than it looks” - now that sums up Samurai Flamenco in one sentence!

Pied Falconet - Microhierax melanoleucos

Members of the genus Microhierax (Falconiformes - Falconidae) are the smallest of falcons. This species, Microhierax melanoleucos, grows up to 20 cm and has a maximum wingspan of 37 cm.

Some individuals of the Pied Falconet have a thin white line across the base of the cere, over the eyes and down to the breast giving the appearance of a white face with large black eye patches.

The Pied Falconet is found in the forests of Bangladesh, China, India, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, and Viet Nam.

Title: Comparison between “Magic Kaito 1412” ‘s opening and the manga

When I was watching the new anime “Magic Kaito 1412”, I realized that many of the opening’s scenes were taken from the manga or the cover of it, so I decided to make the comparison between them. I’m quite sure they made it on purpose so that we could realize. Here's a link to watch the op.

Cuando estaba viendo el nuevo anime “Magic Kaito 1412”, me di cuenta de que muchas partes del opening estaban sacadas del manga o de su tapa, y por eso decidí hacer la comparación entre ambos. Estoy bastante segura de que lo hicieron a propósito para que nosotros, los fans, nos diéramos cuenta. Aquí les dejo un link para ver el op.

新アニメ「マジック快斗1412」を見ていた時に、オープニングの何シーンかが漫画、又はその表紙から取った物だと気付いたので、その二つの比較をしようと思いました。多分これ、私たちファンが気付くようにワザとやったんだと思います。OPを見るにはこちらから。
