I forgot to cross-post my last KHR review from tumblr. ...And the last, idk, five or six or possibly even ten before that. XD Whoops.

Anyway though, this week's review finally got long enough that it didn't feel awkward to cross-post it to DW and LJ as well. So I am just going to do that now! (For reference--my own, mostly--the previous tumblr reviews can be found if you scroll back a little ways through the KHR tag here.)

So hey, LJ and Dreamwidth actually have cuts! That sure is nice.

You don't have to scroll past any of this if you choose not to! And trust me, it is a fair bit to scroll past. XD )

This has nothing to do with the chapter I’m about to review, I'm just mentioning it because I only just heard and it was really a blow to the gut. Wow. The guy was a legend, he’ll really be missed. :(

At any rate, though, we will continue our revisitation (is that a word??) of the last ten or so KHR chapters with chapter 349.

In which Amano and Daily Life had one last sweet summer fling. )

ETA: Sorry about that, the formatting should be fixed now. XD

WHY IS THERE A NEW CHAPTER OUT I'M SO CONFUSED.

But... happy? I guess?? )


P.S. so on Saturday my sis was caller number 7 to 102.7 Fresh FM and won tickets to the NYC premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (PART 2!!), and then on Monday we totally fucking WENT to that premiere, baby, we went there and we SAW that movie, dudes. We saw the shit out of it. AND IT WAS AMAAAAAAAZINNNG and I really should just do a whole separate post on that but it was one of those things where I just have so many ~feelings~ about it that I'm not really sure how to put it into words. But probably maybe I will make a post about it in a day or so with pictures and lots of capslocking about how HOLY SHIT I WAS IN THE SAME ROOM WITH RUPERT GRINT EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE LIKE A THOUSAND OTHER PEOPLE THERE, *FAINT*. For now, though, I just had to mention it because it would be pretty ridiculous if the most interesting thing that has happened to me in like years just came and went and the next day all I posted about was KHR.

Though in fairness, seriously! WHY IS IT OUT ON A TUESDAY. ?? Well, whatever.
makeste: (I'm not the next of them)
SO SCREWED. I'm not sure whether to bow out entirely or just switch last-minute to a less ambitious fic, but as for the one I was working on? There is just no way in hell I will be able to finish it in time. Which is just as well, I suppose, since this way I don't have to worry about mixing up my writing style or trying to disguise it or whatever. It makes my life easier!

But probably you didn't come here to listen to me blather on about fic! You came because once again it is the weekend and time to sit around the campfire and tell scary stories to each other about Daemon Spade, the sinister man who comes in the night and stares at children with his hideous giant torso eyeballs, and who fills elevators with blood and stuff.

The more he feeds on your fear, the longer his hair grows! )


P.S. I am going to finish that meme! (No, really! There is a reason I didn't just jump straight to the Homestuck prompt. I AM LEAVING IT THERE AS INCENTIVE.) I just need to figure out wtf to do about fics first because orz.
makeste: (Do you have a map?)
...and we said our vows, and got to the whole for-better-or-worse-in-sickness-and-in-health part, I never imagined that I would so often find myself desperately confused about WHICH WAS WHICH.

IS THIS CHAPTER RICHER OR POORER? Man, all I know is I still love it anyway. )
makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (A vow unto his own)
Hot Care Bear superheroes. My standards for KHR are really not that high. As long as someone is being particularly hot at least once per chapter, I'm happy. Toss in some bonus gayness and, if we've been extra good, a mountain or two of crack (and sometimes, if we made the right wish on the right shooting star at 11:11, we may even get character development), and I'm on cloud 9.

So I left chapter 339 on a happy note and am waiting patiently with my napkin folded in my lap for a delicious helping of chapter 340.

Amano, please make it à la mode. )

DAY 2

That post header makes this sound like some sort of KHR diary. Hmm...

Dear Diary,

Today Daemon Spade attacked us. But I could not stop laughing! It was the weirdest thing.

Sincerely, Tsuna


P.S. Enma smiled at me today! My heart felt like it was made of butterflies. )
makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (I isolated the reverse power coupling!)
Also, fuck up all the formatting in the previous post by messing with your iPhone. JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE. Bluh.

Anyway (IS ANYONE EVEN OUT THERE READING THIS ANYMORE??), I missed like five chapters apparently, so what I am going to do is post a review a day for five days. And then on the sixth day, I am going to the beach! AND THEN ON THE SEVENTH DAY I WILL COME BACK AND DO THE SIXTH REVIEW. It almost worked out nicely, but what are you gonna do.

So I think we are starting with KHR 336!

I need a new tag that's somewhere in between 'yay new chapter' and 'yay old chapter.' Something like, 'yay chapter that is new to me but everyone else already read six weeks ago'...? )
makeste: (I'M A SHAAAAAARK)
Due to a combination of work/family/holidays/what-have-you keeping you busy and you also being kind of a LAZY ASS in general, and also that one insanely addictive webcomic you went and got yourself addicted to in the spare time you do have, you masterfully put off updating your LJ for several weeks like a winner! GOOD JOB, CHAMP. (But at least you finally got that promotion at work so that was kind of cool.)

REGARDLESS! It occurs to you in a moment of holy-shit-what that you have not made a post in your journal since fucking April. Fucking April SEVENTEENTH. Seriously, did you just forget the Internet even existed?? That is twenty-four fucking days that passed where you did not even log in to your journal. If you weren't so busy now furiously rushing to post stupid meta-updates, you would take a moment to go hang your head in shame somewhere.

Sadly, there is no time for that. KHR 336 is already on the horizon, and unless you really want to cross that unspoken invisible line and post a triple-chapter recap (MADNESS), you know what it is that you must do.

> Makeste: Review the last two chapters already. )

makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (Oh bitch you did not just!)
My poor LJ is so neglected lately that I feel like I might need to hire a maid or something to look after the old place when I'm not around. Or at least remember to dust every once in a while.

Anyway, it appears that while I was away, KHR boldly challenged readers of the 21st century by becoming the first SJ manga to feature an openly gay main character! Or at least, that's what I took away from chapter 332. It's been a week since I first skimmed it, but I distinctly recall leaving with an impression of lots of explosions, heartwarming declarations of boyhood affections, and really not much else! So this will probably be a short-ish recap, done quickly and haphazardly in preparation to move on to chapter 333 which I haven't read yet and am super excited for because I LOVES ME SOME PRIMOS, OH YES I DO.

So let us MAKE HASTE. )

And Happy Belated and/or Soon-to-Be Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] half_sleeping, [livejournal.com profile] reidluver, [livejournal.com profile] betterinorange, [livejournal.com profile] azartti, and [livejournal.com profile] chibikaya! ♥ ♥ ♥
makeste: (You magnify my better half)
KHR, old chum, how I've missed you!

But you're back now and shiner than ever! )


AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL MY MARCH BIFFLES, [livejournal.com profile] ranty_rie, [livejournal.com profile] downpours, [livejournal.com profile] erisabesu, and [livejournal.com profile] doomcake, as well as [livejournal.com profile] spaceremix tomorrow! BUON COMPLEANNO MY DUDES. ♥

ITP: lulz.

makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (A vow unto his own)
Yes, lulz. Which is somewhat surprising given that we are entering the climactic final battle between our hero and his former friend turned bitter enemy, but KHR always did like to fly in the face of convention like that. Making a mockery of our expectations.

On the other hand, given that this is KHR, maybe you WERE expecting it! )

And Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] theprerogative and [livejournal.com profile] umi_no_suzume! ♥
makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (Welcome to the church of bros)
OR SOMETHING! I GUESS!

COME ONE COME ALL )

Happy Oh-So-Belated Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] smiles1777, [livejournal.com profile] ojuzu, [livejournal.com profile] snapdraw_gone, and [livejournal.com profile] melissa_42! ♥ And Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] gameazel as well! And [livejournal.com profile] sawako_shota and [livejournal.com profile] ever_free since I'm kidding myself if I think I'm making another post before the 16th. XD Anyway, much love to all you guys, hope you had, are having, or will have a wonderful day. :)
makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (Baby there's a shark in the water)
So, after last week's translation issues (oh Spade, why does everything that comes out of your mouth cause trouble?), I was going to wait until IEM released KHR 323 instead of going with MS/BT's version again. But wouldn't you know it, here it is, 8 p.m. on a Sunday night and still no sign of it! So I will just go ahead and bite the bullet, because like hell if I have the willpower to wait another whole day to read this.

I'M ONLY HUUUUUMAAAAN )

ETA: Also, Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] caddles, [livejournal.com profile] jote_jote, [livejournal.com profile] daigranon, and [livejournal.com profile] makemegray! ♥
makeste: [a shark with a beach ball on its nose] (My hair like Jesus wore it)
Which is a good thing, since if you don't guess then I don't have to confirm that it is the High School Musical 3 soundtrack, and that I am only partly enjoying it ironically. So don't guess!

Oh and hey KHR 321 is out!

Well, Binktopia's version is out! Close enough! )


Happy Belated Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] nonoji and [livejournal.com profile] calciseptine! And Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] bearit tomorrow (and [livejournal.com profile] felinaofl2 on the 17th)! Much ♥ to you all!

319!

Dec. 19th, 2010 01:28 pm
makeste: (Think of me like Yoda.)
That's 11 times 29!

And it's also the number of the latest KHR chapter! How weird is that? )


On a separate note, it's still a couple of weeks till New Year's but I've already decided that I'm going to make it one of my resolutions to be more consistent about comment replies. I've gotten so bad in the past few months, it's ridiculous. I just let everything pile up and then I get all discouraged whenever I log in because there's so much to get to and I don't have the energy to do it all but then I feel like an ass for just ignoring people, especially since you guys are all so awesome and leave detailed comments that point out stuff I hadn't noticed and raise really interesting points that I want to discuss. But I just get lazy and intimidated. ;;

So my new goal is to get to at least 3 comments a day, since I figure even someone as lazy as I am can't possible be intimidated by that many! START SMALL AND WORK MY WAY UP. That's the new plan. XDb
