Free! the Anime

So I started  a sportsy anime, Haikyuu. A show all about this super short kid that wants to play volleyball and be the very best that no one ever was as an Ace (a position that usually requires loads of height). And the constant talk of believing in yourself, and hilarity, and just typical school closeness, with super sappy lines had me!

Epic Fanart. But they messed up the numbers on the shirts =Y

I missed anime like that so MUCH. I think the last sports anime I’ve ever seen was…I can’t even recall! That’s how long it’s been. And I fell head over heals for this genre then.

But this anime is still ongoing! And I wanted to binge watch an epic sports anime.  NOW.

So I opened up a new tab, and did some searching. I came across Korouko no Basket, and a few others. (Watched the first ep, but I got hooked on something else after Alya told me I was on the look for sport anime.)

I started watching Free!, and anime all about swimming. It’s super short, complete, and only has twelve episodes, half the normal amount of episodes most anime have. It was awesome though! I seriouslyyy loooved it~!

I actually reaaally liked it! It was adorable, and in such a short time, I did manage to bond with a bunch of the characters! That’s no easy feat with just twelve episodes, ya know 😉

But, my fave characters have got to be Haru/Nanase, Rin, and Nagisaaaaa~

Nagisa’s awesome, fun, bright, and just generally happy. Haru, you come to love. And Rin- looks so damn cool, right?- but his creepy shark fangs look a bit frightening, especially paired with those red eyes…

More pictures~!

Why is Rei randomly just THERE in the background..?

This picture ❤

Kinda Cute Chibis!

Although I watched the first eleven episodes in two days, I didn’t watch the last one til last night. (After three ish days.) But I loved it’s ending, and it ended with THIS picture;

READ THAT ENGLISH LINE. READ IT.

See you next Summer!

Which means there was the initial intention to make a second season!! So I did some more googling, and what to I find? THIS!

Dat Blue Two.

A confimation on it’s release- this JULY ❤ (I found out here.)

Yay :3 I can’t wait now!

 

Permanent Nicknames

I have many nicknames. To list even all of them would be a tidious task. And yet here are but a few.

Frostie, Wattson, Dr. Grey I. Wattson, Ze, The Mint Chutney, Maud, Maudlal, Sunny, Sunny Bro, 003, Bee to the Live, Beelive Buddy, Bashir Sahab, and many others besides.

And yet I realize now, that if I do move back to Chicago, a vast majority of these nicknames will be lost to me, since the people I will then interact with in my daily life won’t be calling me by them anymore. Stuff that have to do with my actual name might still be there, but other things like the Bee to the Live, or Maud won’t and those will only be used if I explain the jokes behind them to my new friends. So, I will be loosing a small part of me…But to me, it’s a BIG part of me.

I can only hope that my weirdness shall be accepted by at least a few, and some nick names will be sustained. Like my middle name being Irish. Like my nicknames Wattson, and Frostie. If those things are sustained, I’ll be fine.

And pshaw, it’s not like you can’t call me The Mint Chutney. I’m a super hero for crying out loud. It ain’t a nick name. It’s an identity.

And with that, I poof. I feel better about it. Even if no one is calling me Maud, or Ze, or Sunny Bro, I always will be. It’s on the inside, in my heart. Like my Beelive rings are when I’m too lazy to put them on =P Beelive!

Cuz all I got to do is beliiieeve in me, Pokemon!! (Pokemon Master Quest Theme Song)

Crazy, Chocolate, and Cookies,
-Frostie
the cool as hell magical snowman that inspires not one, but all.

[I also changed my fb alternate name from Wattson to Frostie for the moment. Not sure if it’s a permanent change, or change just for the heck of it. I just want to be recognized as Frostie more. Since I am. And what with this Olaf thing going around too…I’m the first magical snowman, got it?!]

A New Comic- Beelive!

Alya had these rings that spelled out ‘believe’. Each ring had  a letter on it. They didn’t fit her very well, but did fit me. I wanted to wear them and go around going “Cuz all I gotta do is -believe- in me, Pokemon!!”. She wanted to wear them too. So Mnaz comes into play, divides the ring into TWO words, so we can share. I got “bee”. She got “live”. And now, we bro fist, yelling “believe”!!

So this comic shall be named Beelive. And that is also the name of the main setting in this comic too.

Beelive Heading

Plus, this shall be my first ever comic that will be called a “manga”. Even though it is read like a comic, and it’s mostly English, this comic will be AS Japanese as possible. It’s about a Cosplay Cafe, and anime addicts/otakus. How could this not have happened?!

The comic is in a semi demented state of the future. Although there is really just a year difference between Alya and Mnaz when it comes to schooling, I’ve made it somewhere around five. Alya and Mnaz have graduated uni, and have started their careers. I’m in my final year of (Japanese!) high school.

Alya’s made it as a plastic surgeon. Mnaz is a mafia leader, who’s cover is owning a dojo and training Goku/Goko in the martial arts. (Pshaw, doctors are just too boring, so I gave her a career change.) They got where they wanted to be in life…but their dream hasn’t happened yet.

See, it’s their dream, as well as mine, to open a Cosplay Cafe together. And after working for a while, they have enough money saved up to buy the perfect location, and have everything figured out- except how we’re going to run it in the morning. Alya and Mnaz have their jobs, and I’ve got school. But if we don’t have anyone working there in the mornings, we’d miss out on the afternoon/lunch rush and lose loads of profit. So, in a bind, with short-staffed-ness, we don’t open the cafe quite yet.

Random Doodle- Beelive Trio

Untiiiiil, I find us a perfect Japanese Android that I stole from Adil, a mad scientist who works in his secret laboratory. And XJ-19, the android, handles the fort while we’re busy doing our respective stuff in the mornings.

In the afternoon, we all gather and meet at the Cafe to join in, and help out. We meet and greet our customers and generally have fun. Plus we’ve got super powers (how could we NOT?). So, I’ll be seen flying around, serving the sugar free stuff (Alya doesn’t trust me to get the sugar stuffed stuff to the tables without “taste testing” first.). Alya will be the store manager, and drool at all the pretty boys/bishounen. Mehernaz will be the one- I don’t know, I haven’t figured it out yet…

And I’m pondering kidnapping and in slaving Asmaa, Alya’s older sister, to be out chef. Mhmm.

Innocent Act

^[a random panel from the comic, what with my innocent act and all =P ]

But how do I get the rest of our crew into this comic, huh? Weeeell, I was thinking of having a high school reunion, and having it held at the Cafe! And then, everyone will just keep popping in, every now and then. Some will become regular customers, like Zaid, Shayan, and Mateena (anime addicts).

Plus, Mnaz proposes that Zaid fall in love with XJ-19. And have a nose bleed when he sees her. I’m thinking of doing that.

Aaaagh, there’s just SO much more to mention about this comic too! But I gotta go draw some sketches for the actual cafe, and for it’s lay out and all. Since the next scenes going to be there.

Anyhoo, I’ll leave the rest for another post, like Kirito and the Neighboring Rivals for some other time =P

Buuut it feels just so GRAND drawing a comic after sooo impossibly long ❤ And now I’ll actually have something to do in physics xD Huzzah to that!

Note- All the pictures used in this post were drawn by me, are mine, and I will sue for copying and claiming these to be yours >.> I work incredibly hard on my comics, my characters, and make loads of sketches before I’m satisfied with how they look. So don’t go stealing all that effort away from me. If you like how they look, save the pics, just don’t claim them to be yours. These characters are MINE, and these pictures from this site. If you want to use them, give credit to their creator, Ze I. Wattson. Just to set the record straight. La la la ^_^

Fact or Crap- Did You Know?

So my friend has this AMAZING board game called Fact or Crap from abroad, i think, and ive never even heard of it. so when i went over to her house,  i insisted we play it. Which is exactly what happened.

It turns out that im pretty amazing at this game. i won in maybe ten or fifteen minutes…but we then, as per MY regulations, discarded all the rules and continued playing cuz the facts are crazy enough to be crap.

So yeah, here are a few facts that were very epic and needed documentation. Here we go. And, i know there are maaannyyy disbelievers on the net, so im putting down some sources to back me up. besides the word ‘fact’ written next to it on the card =P

1. John F. Kennedy had a hourse named Leprachaun.

2. Max Q is a rock band made entirely out of NASA astronauts.

3. Wayne Watson ate so much popcorn that he got a life-threatning disease called Popcorn Lung form a chemical in the butter flavoring. He then later wins $7.2 million in US court.

Still dont believe me? Here are sources=
