Silver Diamond Random Scanlations

These are just a few pages I tried to translate at the best of my abilities.
They're not 100% accurate, not even 80% accurate word-by-word but I believe they vaguely hold the same meaning.
I'm still waiting for a better scanlation but for now, let's enjoy some of the funnier parts of Silver Diamond vol  16

Oh, and some of them I'll provide the japanese text that I accumulated (it's hard not being able to type japanese welp) while I was working. Hopefully those who have a better Japanese understanding can correct me ^^ I really want to understand what they say.

These are only text of the 2nd and 3rd panel:
一灯: えっ何急に
成重: いえ あの 私より年上だと聞いたので
一灯: 丁寧だな アンタ
宮: 別に いいのに呼び捨てで
成重: でも年上の方は敬わ ないとですから
虹: 成重はマジメだからな -
I left the last one from Narushige untranslated because it felt funnier that way. "Ack"
When I first did this I didn't know that the づけ in the 2nd panel meant 付 (affix). So the text untranslated in the Kazuhi's bubble is probably "-san affix?!"
This was too fun not to translate. The Touno brothers are so cute^^
灯二: えっ年上ってさんづけするの?  一灯も?
一灯: いや別に構わねえよ呼び捨てで
一灯: 構わねえけどえっと...
灯二: 何? どしたの? -
Chigusa whispers
灯二: えっと...一灯お兄様...?
一灯: いやもっと フツ- ので呼でほしかったんだが....
1 - 親切
2 - 嫌がらせ
3 - 世間知らず
どれだ 千銀....!!
I had trouble with Kazuhi's 「いやもっと フツ- ので呼でほしかったんだが」I think really got it wrong ^^;;;

みつば:「千銀さん」て呼んだ方がいいの? 「千艸さん」?
恵司: そ-いや年上って さんづけするモンだったっけ?
灯二: おまえら成重は「さん」で呼んでるじゃん...
みつば: あっいやそれは...
恵司: なんとなく...
羅貫: 別にいいんじゃないの    気にしなくて
羅貫: 千艸は前「呼び捨てでいい」って言ってたし
羅貫: ね
千艸: ああ
千艸: 呼び捨てにされる方が好きだから...
恵司: なんで アンタが言うと
淕楼: 変な意味に聞こえるんだ...
成重: 多分変な意味だから大丈夫ですよ
I probably got it wrong from the start. Welp! This one was the most confusing and since I don't really get the joke, that means I definitely translated it wrongly. Sorry!

I still have one page left that I want to try my hands on but for now this is enough probably^^
I finally did it:

秋市: でもよく考えたらまず  ラカンを呼び捨てがダメじゃねえ?
秋市: サノメの皇子なのにさ
彌式: 偉そうに見えねえかもな  たしかに
秋市: じゃあ「ラカン様」で呼ぼうか
夕吾 : あ いいな「ラカン様」格好よくて
灯二: あっ待てストップ!
成重: ダメですそれは
(?): えっ!? 何で!?
千艸: 羅貫様
羅貫: 様はよせ  様は-- はずかしすぎる
灯二: ホラすぐ真似するんだもんコイツ
(?): あっごめん
Rakan is very cute^^ I probably got it wrong for Touji's part at the end though ^^;;

Oh, and have these little snippets I posted on tumblr:

Because I couldn't translate the whole page, I made a few cuts. This is when they are trying to think up pseudo-names and Rakan asks them what would be a good one for Narushige

 Only Rakan thinks this of course. And to add a bit on this topic, this came in the extra:
Rather than 'nickname' I think I should have gone with 'pseudo name'. Google translate came up with mnemonic but...well.

fyi: They're just pressing foreheads together in order for Chigusa to transmit the image into Rakan's mind
This is a pretty normal occurrence in Silver Diamond actually.
A fluffy moment with the four of them^^

Self Portrait in the literal meaning

I got very ecstatic today when I found out that youtube is working again on the TV so I played Hiimdaisy's Persona 4 comic dub over and over and over again.

It was pretty random but I took out my camera to get a picture of the working youtube.

As you can see above. Welp, messy house.

Lol, that was a weird moment in the story to capture of, but never mind.
Somehow, I was playing around with the settings to see which was okay with indoors. It's because tomorrow there will be Comic Fiesta and we're most likely to stay indoors.

So, it resulted in these:

I made use of the self-timer setting. It was difficult to have it stay static since I don't have a tripod but using a pail and my handphone, it worked somehow. That's why the POV is pretty low, I guess.

I also managed to play around with them in Photoshop. alskdjskldjals I don't know why but Photoshop suddenly decided to work again ;v; I'm so happy aaaaaaa-

There's like dozens more that didn't turn out good since I make such a lousy model but oh well

It was very unplanned, that's why I'm wearing just random clothes.
Maybe if I can do it again, I'll dress much better.

For now, these make appropriate profile picture on facebook.

It's a Flower!!

I'm taking this moment of blog updating to show you flowers
that okaa-san planted

They're flowers.


Aidiladha - Back Home

So, Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha and Happy something something(orz)
It's been a while since I wrote here
Nee-san and I returned home!

...for a week. Or so.

Anyway, first day of raya:
 without me

with me
that kind of looks like a really rotten smile on me -w-;;

I don't feel like elaborating much because certain things have soured the festivity for us so, let's just have me comment on the pictures I'm putting up here :D

We went to mom's friend's house and two kittens were new additions to their family members so we had a load of fun squeeing and poking and playing with it.

More of this kitty

Even more of this kitty (the other kitty was sleeping in imouto-chan's lap ;v;)

Even MOAR of this kitty
and we don't even know what its name is 8D

Solo kitty time XD
They were staggering and fidgeting a lot and we were inside so many of the pictures turn out blur-ish. This was pretty much the best out of it all
and I also brightened it in SAI. alskdjlaksd I don't like photo-editing without PS ;A;

The next day (today), we went to Pizza Hut! Yumm~
Nee-chan paid for it this time so it was really heavenly *q*


Okaa-san and imouto-chan.
Imouto-chan suddenly became a watch model 8D

My favourite Pizza Hut dish that's not pizza X3

One of my favourite poses to take when coming to Pizza Hut 8D
The 'Drinking Nose' pose~!

And that's about it really~
I'm honestly too tired to write more so I'll just leave it here

The 80 percent Meme

Click for better view

In which "If you know 80% of these characters, then you're my friend" is how it goes...or so they say.

It was fun when I posted it on Deviantart and people guessed it.
Everyone even got their guesses right! I'm so happy~

Since I've already posted the answers on DA, so here it is (from left to right):
Sakata Gintoki from Gintama (c) Hideaki Sorachi
Shion/Sion from No. 6 (c) Atsuko Asano
Natsume Takashi from Natsume Yuujinchou (c) Midorikawa Yuki
Sawa Rakan from Silver Diamond (c) Shiho Sugiura
Ryuugamine Mikado from Durarara!! (c) Ryohgo Narita
North Italy from Hetalia (c) Himaruya Hidekaz
Sawada Tsunayoshi from Katekyo Hitman Reborn (c) Amano Akira
Okumura Rin from Ao no Exorcist (c) Kazue Kato
Takanashi Souta from Wagnaria/Working! (c) Karino Takatsu
Sanada Yukimura Gakuen Basara-version (c) ???

In the end, no one managed to guess No.4 due to the fandom being quite small (seeing as the series has yet to be animated) but someone did manage to guess 9 of them right even though they named two only by series. 
It made me really happy because it means that my drawings are recognizable enough. I've seen a few others who also did this meme and some of them, when I looked at the answers, I was like 'o rly?' since I knew the character but could not recognize it. It's mostly due to the artist's style but...meh.

I chose to go with a 'sleep' theme, as you can see. It was fun coming up with their different poses. I tried to add an external feature that would help make them more recognizable. Like Gintoki's sword, Mikado's handphone, Tsuna's pet and Natsume's book of friends.

I'd like to try something like this again in the future

When I Feel Like I've Worked Hard

I make it into my wallpaper.
Also, I recently just noticed that Pixiv is more international friendly now. They have a 'global' option for the address. So, I think I'm going to work hard over there too from now on.
I've also been more active on DA lately but that's only because this is still sem break. I hope I can keep up this drawing streak for a bit longer. My skills have really went down when I had that hiatus.
Oh, I also need to get to writing.

I Want to Watch Lots of Stuff

If I had to blame someone for getting me into watching all these online series,
I'd blame Anis-chan.

but she's so sweet and cute and I can't

so let's not blame anyone.

Sshhhh you didn't read the first line.
Rest assured.

Anyway, I'm, like, getting into the hang of following an anime series online.
I first started with AoEx (yep, it's that recent)
I think I was up to episode 2 or 3 when I first started it.
And now.


The list of animes I'm following/ have followed:
- Ao no Exorcist
- Gintama
- Tiger and Bunny
- Usagi Drops
- Sket Dance
- No.6
- San Natsume Yuujinchou
- Ano Hana (though this one a bit late so I'm planning on just buying the DVD)
- Blood-C

So many series, so little internet


That aside, look what's in the preview of the coming No.6's episode!

I don't even-

Casually Watching Sengoku BASARA Without Subtitles

...and I do not understand anything

shut up!
The translations suck. I can't watch it without feeling like gauging my eyes out. It feels like they took the chinese subtitles, stuck it onto Google translate and try to feed us the crap it produces.
God! My friend's 2nd grade grammar is better 
*bashes imaginary anime head through a fourth wall*

It doesn't help that Sanada Yukimura's classic japanese completely makes no sense to me. Kojuura makes more sense than him. Oh my god....
3 things I learn from this:
1 - I should heavily consider taking proper and formal japanese classes 
2 - Date Masamune's engrish is music to my ears.
3 - My sense of language is that, if the translation is not proper, I might as well not understand it all-together.
I sound like such a loser.

Anyway, I'm gonna laze around at home today like Bruno Mars 'lazy song' and imagine that I'm outside being a teenage.
(It's just that recently, I've been told that 'now I know why you don't shop like girls'.
I am really sorry for being this way; this recluse girl who's also an introvert and cannot conjure up a decent fashion sense to be acceptable in community. I'm sorry that I allow my mother to take care of my finances for me. I will work hard and get decent exam results so that I can imprint it on my resume and see it burn in the faces of my employers who would not like to hire a person with no decent work experiences.
I'm so sorry!
Sessha will work hard to find a few jobs that pay well)

Wow, look at me and my pathetic mood.
Correction: my pathetic mood and I.
*bricked by one Arthur Kirkland*

I'm just gonna roll somewhere now and wait for it to rain money.
Btw, Sanada Yukimura's abdomen...
...every time I look at it, I think, 'doesn't this guy ever get cold wearing that?' followed by some drool.
But he's 2D. He probably never had a fever.
He's also 3D in the games
but I've only seen him as 2D
So he'll always be 2D to me.

What Happens When I Have Too Much Fun In Lightwave

What started from this:







I seriously had too much fun.

I mean, I wasn't even high on anything...

And I actually have quite a lot more.

Finally decided to go with this:

No. 6



I don't even know why it's all in caps. Tumblr must be rubbing off on me.
So, like, these two are obviously the main characters and episode 1 shows their meeting etc.
The one with brown hair is Sion while the one with blue hair (and supposedly gray eyes) is Nezumi(Rat)
The OP plays and you see those two as above.
Then you see these two:
And I'm like "Who the fuck are these two and why do they remind me of a pair of exorcists?"
It's obvious though that they're just grown-up version of those 2 kids.
and then....
I do a double take
And here I'm thinkin' 'That you, Sion? Your hair's a bit off.'
Course' it is. It's effing WHITE.

But, like, y'know, coming episodes are gonna explain what shit dropped to make his hair turn white.
So, yeah, let's leave it to later

And since it'd be really fun if you just went and watched the story, yourself, we'll just cut to my favourite scene:
This is the "Why'd you decide to help me" answer.
And Nezumi doesn't get mad.
Maybe it's cuz he knows puberty is gonna hit him better than it does to Sion.
But he is undeniably girly.
At least for now.

They do a 4 year time skip.
Sion got kicked off his high horse because he saved Nezumi and works as a cleaner not really, but still
Everything is clean and nothing hurts.
Except that time Sion decided to suspect the government and they try to take him to a correctional facility.

C'mon, c'mon
And his hair! I like his hair! I want to know how to tie my hair like that!
Then I wouldn't have to keep hairbands
Action stuff happens that I can probably watch 100 times but never get tired off!
And next week~!
Noses will bleed...

All in all.
This probably sums up the whole 2 episodes:
It's creepy, I know.
