Liliy is a Fangirl #2

And we’re back for another fun fangirl Friday rambling session. Oh, yeah~

Games

Minecraft. Good lord that game is addictive. I now know why I avoided it for so long. But seriously: Legos for adults. I’m currently building my castle and loving it. XD

And because I’m a loser I play on Peaceful mode. Stupid Creepers. *_*

“SHEEP.”

(I’ll update this post with screenshots once I have them. XD)

Books/Comics

The New 52 of DC continues~ After looking at the full list I had about 13-14 series I wanted to pick up. This week had 3 of my definite must haves!

Action Comics #1: New cocky, rebellious Superman. Let’s do a little back story – Superman had never been my cup of tea. He was the perfect Boy Scout and a little boring, so I never really grabbed any of his solo titles. Now, make him dorky Clark Kent or stick him in a room with Batman & I’m all over that. So I definitely never hated the big guy, it just wasn’t my first choice. That said, the new attitude on Superman is almost…weird. I kinda’ miss the boy scout, but I’m willing to give him a shot.

Detective Comics #1: I love Batman. The reboot gives me a chance to get in on the comic action (I was so far behind it didn’t seem worth it XD) so this was a no¬†brainer. Comic was creepy. Seriously. The last page *shiver.*

Static Shock #1: I loved the Static Shock cartoon. Virgil & Richie were fun and had that smart-alec Spiderman thing going on & we all know that super heros deserve proper witty banter. I found out much later it was based off a comic series, but like most didn’t have the money or time to ‘catch up’ to the current issue. Reboot? Yes, please. I loved issue #1. It was funny & entertaining. Can’t wait for issue #2.

And thanks to Comixology Sales, I have a few Marvel comics as well!

The Ultimates 2: I…read this for the Thor storyline. I’ll be honest. I love how differently Thor & Loki were handled and how everyone thought he was crazy. I’m crossing my fingers for Ulitmates (the first part) to go on Sale so I can see him join the team instead of just the ending.

Ultimate Thor: Tie in to the Ultimates universe. Loved it as well. Lots of fun Loki action and gave all the backstory for Thor in The Ultimates.

…I think I just like Thor. A lot. Speaking….that dvd came out this week. *ponders*

Anime

No. 6: Episode. No. 10. *twitch* Much, much fangirl squealing commenced after that episode. Words don’t describe my love for Sion and Rat and I refuse to say anything more because I don’t want to spoil it. XD

And now for the real meat of today’s fangirling:

I drew this back in 2001 (or 2003...I don't remember.)

DIGIMON: 

Let’s go back in time shall we? It’s 2001, Liliy hasn’t started her comics yet and she drew constant fanart. Oh yeah, she also had fan-digi characters.

Yes. I had an FDD. Fun stuff that. I even wrote the bad (really, really) bad fanfiction that went with it.

Oh, and I had the biggest crush on Ken Ichijouji EVER. It was bad…sooo bad.

Back to today!

Browsin’ around CrunchyRoll for something to watch inbetween No. 6 updates, and went ‘Oh hai! They’ve got Digimon!” Specifically, Digimon Adventures 02 & Digimon Tamers. I figured – why the heck not? Series 2 was my favorite & I hadn’t seen it in forever (I still wish they had the first series…) so I was on-board the nostalgia train!

Well, once I got past the ‘….this is in Japanese’ weirdness. Having only seen the dub it took some getting used to, but I adjusted quickly.

And I officially fell in love with Wormmon & the Digimon Kaiser (Emperor) all over again. Ken was so much more fun when he was running around being evil. He had better hair, cool glasses and he was a royal little tyrant. I love him so much. Hee hee.

Wormmon won me over though with a single line (that I’ve paraphrased) : “You’re staying here? That means we can always be together! I’m so happy. *nuzzles Ken-chan’s leg*”

I. Melted. Sooo, so cute. Squee. Squee I say. I love that little guy & Stingmon is awesome.

And Davis & V-Mon are also love. And TK. And Angemon.

You get the gist.

Liliy’s A Fangirl #1

I’ve decided that I need to update my blog more – to do this I think I’m going to try and start a series or two and hope that keeps me talking to you guys. So I’m thinking the series for Fridays & maybe one later in the week to focus on writing/my comics. Sound good?

We’ll start things off with the first edition of – “Liliy’s A Fangirl” (Fangirl? Friday? Ha ha. So original. *flips hair back*) – Where I talk to you about whatever geeked me out the most this week that you probably saw once or twice on Twitter. xD

Movies

Fright. Night. <– No contest. Fright Night won over all movie fandom for the past couple of weeks. I even have a screen of Jerry (Farrell) on my desktop at work. It has caused much teasing but they can deal with it.

Loved the 1985 version of the film like you wouldn’t believe. The actors were amazing (Roddy McDowall~ We miss you!) and the plot was fun. The 2011 version kept that same fun but modernized the story line to more of a Buffy thing. Both worked well and I’m a fan~

Best part of the series? The Old School Vampire rules. It’s just one of those things that should be in vampire stories. Their stupid, stupid rules that counter balance the fact otherwise they’re mostly all powerful and undefeatable. How else can you have a guy immune to bullets be stabbed with a pencil (wood!)? I’m sorry Edward Cullen – but you wouldn’t last a day if you had to follow the rules. :P

Or maybe you’d finally be bad ass. One of the two.

Books/Comics

The DC New 52 started this week with JL#1 – I like. I liked it a lot. Green Lantern & Batman played off each other well and we start things off with a Superman vs Batman showdown. That’s the way to start a new series.

Can’t wait for the next new series to start Wednesday~

And thanks to a one-day Comixology Sale, I got all of Marvel’s Ultimates 2 for $14 – good deal. Only read through the first part though. Crazy Thor…oh Thor. *hugs him*

Also, still trying to get through Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist. It feels like I’ve been reading this book forever. >_< It’s not that it’s bad, but it goes back and forth between stuff I care about and stuff I don’t, so when I hit the parts I could care less about I tend to put the book down and forget it exists. >.> The parts with Eli & Oscar are good though. XD

Also, Friend gave me her book in progress~ Really good so far~ Need more time in the day to sit down with that. *_*;

Anime

I’ve been pretty lax on anime lately, but CrunchyRoll is helping that. <3 Them. That subscription is totally worth every penny for ad free streaming. I really hope more people support this service & funimation for streaming. Yay Legal options! :D Current favs include:

No. 6 – These episodes won’t come out fast enough and I missed yesterday’s new one…drat. *_* But seriously – Rat & Sion are the cutest things ever and I love it. Also, animation is win.

Otome Youkai Zakuro – Saw this series on an amazing AMV & loved the animation. So, I looked up the series on Crunchy Roll (it’s complete) and loved it. I watched the entire thing in about two sittings. Think Tactics, but with more girls & less shounen-ai everywhere. Very cute fluffy series about three pairings (including a canon twin OT3! XD). It even got me choked up there toward the end of the series with the more serious episodes. A tear may have fallen out.

Blue Exorcist – This series is just cute. >.> Slightly losing interest though with the later stuff. It was more fun when Rin was hiding his powers. XD

Music

“Start a Fire” by Ryan Star.

That is all.
