It’s time for Sai Mecha again! What is Sai Mecha, you ask? It’s a tournament where we nominate our favorite mechs and they fight, and they fight, AND THEY FIGHT UNTIL THERE IS ONLY ONE LEFT STANDING! Submit your nominations of 10 mechs by following the instructions in that link! It’s due by tomorrow (April 29), but you only need to choose a few mechs and don’t have to make a whole post like me. Even if you don’t nominate your favorite mechs in time, you can still vote in the polls to advance the robots you love!
These are my AWESOME mecha nominees!
RX-78GPo3D Dendrobium (Gundam 0083 Stardust Memories)
The monster designed for AREA DOMINANCE is composed of two units, the Stamen mobile suit and the Orchis weapons platform. It has a fuckton of missiles, and when it launches all of its weapons its like Danmaku in space. Think Touhou girls have the most firepower? WRONG! Watch this short video of Gundam Evolve 4 featuring the Dendrobium, it’ll be the coolest thing you see all day.
HOW AWESOME WAS THAT!??!?!?!?!?
The Dendrobium is my favorite thing to come out of Gundam. Ever. NOMINATE AND VOTE FOR IT! Read the rest of this entry
A (very late, everything I do is late nowadays) writing prompt from 2DT last week, “how the angel drowned my spark“. This time it’s using the characters from my novel again, taking place about half a year before the novel does (though the small part at the end is set during the novel). It’s told from Claribel’s point of view (though I’m not sure I’ll make it canon, not sure the mindset in this story fits with her character) and is related to a previous prompt, The Curse of the Reaper that was Flan’s backstory.
Again, please read, enjoy, and leave some feedback!
Some people may laugh at Koko’s claim that she’s selling weapons for world peace as just a ridiculous quirk from our favorite psychotic arms dealer, and it does seem counter intuitive.
While Koko’s methods and true intentions are debatable, the reasoning behind the idea isn’t that ridiculous. In international politics there are a variety of paradigms for looking at the world, and each has its own method of bringing peace and stability to the international system. Here’s a brief explanation of Liberalism and Realism, the latter of which Jormungand seems to follow. Read the rest of this entry
Bang. Oh Koko you quirky psychotic batshit insane white haired arms dealer, I love you.
This is probably my favorite show out of all the ones that begin this season. I mean, Koko is just fucking awesome. She’s a cold blooded arms dealer traveling with a gang of soldiers, and picked up an orphaned child soldier who lost his parents because of arms dealers. The dynamic between these two is interesting, a weird mix of sister-brother, commander-soldier, revenge-redemption relations. She’s incredibly confident in her ability to read the boy, enough to go in a car full of weapons alone with him despite knowing that he loathes arms dealers. The time she told him that she’ll teach him to love guns is interesting too. The other characters also have their own quirks, and I also like the knife wielding yandere with an eye patch who has the serious hots for Koko. There’s also the group of soldiers whose eyes went completely insane with excitement when Koko told them to go hunt… kyaaa~. There’s a lot the show has to offer, with a lot of different factions with conflicting goals and a crapton of military hardware (AN F-22 AND A MIG-29 SHOWED UP UWAAAA), but the awesome ragtag band gathered around Koko are what the show is all about.
Coincidentally, apart from her hair, Koko is very similar to my character Flan. Especially those eyes. Read the rest of this entry
Some of you might know Touhou as “that shooting game with all the girls and fanart everywhere”, and wonder where music fits into the picture (if you already know feel free to scroll down to where I talk about some of my favorite songs). The game has great OST for the stage and boss fights, and doujin circles take the melody and make remixes of the songs. Sometimes the remixes are with new instruments, though many of them also have vocals added to the song. The remixes sometimes stay close to the original, but sometimes they deviate a lot.

Another writing prompt from 2DT, this time “drink another between night & blue”! I decided to go for a different style this time. It’s a fantasy story, written in first person, which I’m not used to writing in >_< so apologies if it sounds weird! The pictures in this post are quick sketches I tried to make before the time limit of posting is up. Yes I know they suck.
Please enjoy, and tell me what you think about the story! Read the rest of this entry
