@U@ So happy it’s back!

i’m still losing my shit at this comic me and gatoraid drew on the ferry panel by panel; Aomine is rowing to Sweden but he left his axe body spray home so his smell kills all the fish in the sea, including jeopardizing merman Haru. Swedish coastal officer Rin tells Aomine it’s illegal to bring chemical weaponry into the country and Aomine is jailed. (there’s more but these are my favourite panels) (dont ask me why it’s drawn in a monster high notebook)

So. That essay i wrote on nozmo got me thinking; while trying to get over my writer’s block, I still need to keep writing, and brief analysis/commentary is a good way to give my brain a rest (don’t ask me how that works). Only problem is, I have so little time lately that wading through things to read is a chore.

So I thought of this: as I said, every artist deserves to have their stuff extensively commented on every once in a while. And not to sound overly modest, but I give pretty good comments. (just ask pennyofthewild or manicpixietarantula) So if there’s a fic or any other piece of writing you’d like me to take a look at, I’d happily do it — I’m not talking about criticism (though I’m happy to give constructive criticism too, if that’s what you want; don’t let the shittiness of my own writing deter you, I’m fairly adept at pointing out technical stuff), but simply commenting on the things that work and why they work. In short, I’m more or less offering an elaborate egoboost, because we could all use being reminded that our efforts matter.

I’m going to be away in Sweden till monday and could use something to read during downtime, so if you’re at all interested, send me a msg or something and I’ll probably be game with anything. Cos this is literally my game.

Fight me, Haru!! ♥♥ – a love letter to Nozmo’s Harurin comics

image

(full original)

As I mentioned before, I am going to hold out on actually commenting or analyzing S2 of Free! until the season finishes. Still, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take out the time to analyze something; the other day I jokingly told Nozmo / junjouprince that I should just do a simple lit interpretation of her Harurin comics in the meantime, and somehow that thought stuck with me.

Why not?

I mean, hell, why bother getting an MA if you can’t put those skills into use with something you love? Because that’s exactly what Nozmo’s comics are to me: something that I love because they never fail to make me appreciate the original series even more. And I feel like every once in a while, each artist deserves to be recognized with more than just a press of the Like button; the time Nozmo has taken out to create these things should never be taken for granted, and through this extended love letter I hope to convey just how much I respect the love and enthusiasm she has put into wanting to share them with us.

So. I will discuss both the depictions of younger Rin and Haruka as well as older Rin and Haruka, including characterization and recurring themes between narrative and visuals. My purpose is to illustrate how beautifully Nozmo uses nuance and visual effect to flesh out Rin and Haruka’s relationship, in a way that never overwhelms the original but adds to it instead. My argument is that through the use of stylistic shifts and self-awareness, Nozmo manages to tell multiple narratives in one, particularly celebrating Rin’s personality. At the root of it all, two things distinguish these comics from anything I have read before: humour and intimacy.

Don’t expect straight up critical deconstruction, son. Here’s literally some 3000 words of me explaining why I love Nozmo, if just because I can.

My Sailor Moon postcard from the lovely icecreambat arrived! Yay~ I’m so happy! It’s actually the first personal mail I received at my first apartment. Plus this pic was actually my favourite one :)
Sailor Moon was one of my very first fandoms, before the days of tumblr, livejournal and forums. Where anipike was our go-to source, and the geocities sites reigned prime. It was the first manga series I bought and the first anime I watched in Japanese. Ah~ the good old days haha
Thank you! The makoto and rin stickers were super cute too ^__^

ahaha I’m so glad you liked it! that StarS pic is one of my all time favourites so I figured I’d give it to you since I know you really like Sailor Moon too. (I got this show to blame for everything anime-related I am today, I could talk about my teenage obsession for hours lmao)
