A.K.A., “GIANT ESSAY ABOUT TSUNA AND REBORN’S RELATIONSHIP.”

BEFORE I GET TO THE ESSAY, a quick note for anyone who is on LJ and/or Dreamwidth exclusively--pretty much all of my KHR reviews these days are only posted on tumblr. Because I am super lazy, and cross-posting stuff requires me to do a little more typing and clicking and OH MY GOD IT'S SO MUCH WORK!1 (I'm sorry, did I say lazy, I meant fail. XD)

If anyone is interested, I finally went back and tagged my tumblr reviews with the 'yay new chapter' tag, so... yeah. They're there! That is where they are.

Anyway, so yeah, KHR 378 came out and an essay happened, idk.

1500 words on KHR characters. This is a cut that is definitely worth clicking. )
makeste: (I'm not broke)
Because I have no patience for comment limits, and because my fingers apparently will just not stop typing words.

This is the response to [livejournal.com profile] misamiera’s request from this meme. The KHR request. Which would explain why, three questions in, the word count for the comment was at about 2,000 words.

ETA: OKAY I'M BACK AND READY TO LIGHT IT UP LIKE IT'S DYNAMITE.

THE REST OF THE MEME )

But first, thanks for all the links in the last post! My tumblr is now off to a nice tumbling start. If anyone else has tumblrs please don't hesitate to add me and I will add you back and THE TUMBLING CIRCLE WILL BE COMPLETE. I just like saying the word tumblr and variations thereof, and will continue to make excuses to do so at any opportunity.

This chapter which I am about to review has nothing to do with tumblr, or tumbling! )

NRGH I have like this list of things to do whenever I have spare time and am near a computer, and it goes like, "POST PICS FROM THE HP71/2 PREMIERE" and "FINISH UP THAT MEME" and "WORK ON UNDERCOVER FIC" and "POST RECAP/REACTION POST FROM NEW CHAPTER" and only one of those things ever seems to get done! XD Well, good progress has also been made on the fic, I suppose, but not soon enough for it to actually be an Undercover fic any more, sadly. I'm still having a lot of fun with that thing, though.

Anyway, time to get to the one thing I can still manage to reliably do on the Internet.

That thing of course being CAPSLOCK. )

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: [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: (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. ♥
makeste: (JOY JOY egao ga mitai kara)
That's actually a typo up there, I don't want to mislead anyone. It's not actually chapter three billion two hundred fifty-five million, five hundred fifty-five thousand five hundred and fifty five. It's just 325.

I got a little excited, is all.

SO MANY SPOILERS beneath this cut btw! )

omg omg

I spent all day waiting to sit down and read this chapter. I haven't even looked at my flist in like 24 hours out of fear that I might be inadvertently spoiled. *PARANOID*

So... NO PRESSURE, AMANO.

KHR 324! )
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!

Greetings, all!

So a few weeks ago, I got a new job, which has its pros and cons. Pros: I am slightly richer than before (read: still poor as the dickens). Cons: Internet usage is strictly regulated and monitored at the new job, so I'm pretty much away from LJ for about 12 hours a day (including commute and so forth), and sleeping for at least 8 of the other hours. THE FUN PART OF THE DAY JUST GOT A HELL OF A LOT SHORTER.

Plus on top of that there has been Christmassy stuff to take care of and colds to battle and so forth blah blah long story short I haven't reviewed the last two KHR chapters yet! Which was probably obvious already BUT I MUST MAKE EXCUSES FOR IT, OKAY. 8(

Anyway, what I was thinking was that I would wait until chapter 318 came out and then do like a double review or something. What I did not anticipate was that Vongola GP (a.k.a. KHR on cuteness steroids) would be premiering the same weekend! DAMN YOU AMANO AND TOSHINORI, SNEAKING UP ON ME LIKE THAT.

Soo... I guess it'll be a double review of KHR 317/318*, followed (most likely tomorrow) by a post on GP 01.

*you saw nothing! If you have no clue what I am talking about, then... good. XD

Idk, I'm making this up as I go. )
makeste: (Hello sexy world)
Yes, that's including everyone not from the US! Because even if you don't celebrate American Thanksgiving, everyone can celebrate the day after Thanksgiving! This is true of most other major holidays as well. But I digress.

Now where did we leave off last week? Oh yes, that's right; Gokudera was being an amazing badass.

KHR 316, a.k.a. Makeste Can Die Happy Now )

Incidentally, I hope everyone did have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I also hope [livejournal.com profile] relaxsama and [livejournal.com profile] jewel_song had super-epic birthdays, and [livejournal.com profile] readerofasaph, I hope you have an awesome birthday on the 28th as well! ♥
makeste: (VICTOLY)
It was terrible! I hated everything about it!!

Naw, I'm just kidding; it was actually kind of the best movie ever. Probably I'll be making some sort of long, spasmatic capslocky post about it in the near future. Since everything about it was completely perfect fffff wake me up when it's July.

Well, in the meantime, at least there's still KHR!

And I love Gokudera ALMOST as much as I love Ron Weasley, so that's something. )

ETA: Sorry for the EXTREME lack of replies, guys. I got a new job and I'm still adjusting to the hours. I'll try to get to these either this evening or tomorrow (Wednesday) night.

KHR 314~

So I tried something different this week, and read Binktopia's scanlation first, then used IEM's version to do the review. I think it worked out all right; it solves the problem of me fretting about which scan to read, as well as the problem of me constantly going into these things unspoiled so that all I'm capable of writing are capslock reactions and rows and rows of exclamation points.

Though I like to think those exclamation points did have their own special charm. )
