In a display of productivity unprecedented outside of ITPE, I just finished 3 podfics in 2 weeks. Granted, two of those have been almost ready for ages, while the last one is super short. But still! Go me. 

All of them are for Haikyuu!!, the sports anime of my heart, love of my life. Definitely planning on recording more of them.

no room for pretend
(Iwaizumi/Oikawa), orphaned work. Somehow these two dorks ended up my most favourite pairing??? I am highly emotional about them and I love them and I require ten million more fics for them at the very least. This one is a most excellent fake dating story, which is always a tricky trope for me. With any given fake dating fic, I will either love it with the fiery passion of a thousand suns, or I will have to stop reading two paragraphs in because I can't handle it. IDK. It's weird. Anyway, with this fic it was obviously option number one!

I think this is an AU setting (b/c of the mentions of Suga and Ushiwaka and, well, the lack of Volleyball), but only a very slight one. Now that I think about it, using pics of them in their school stuff is maybe a bit misleading, since they're older here. Oh well. *shrugs* I still like the cover.

It's not as obvious here as it is in KUNIMI, SOBS WHISPERER, but I think I did a lot more...performing, I guess, with Oikawa's dialogue than I usually do. I'm not that good at doing voices, so I usually don't put too much thought into it, but here it felt kind necessary. I'm not sure how much of it is Oikawa's seiyuu in the anime or just my own character interpretation, but I always think of him as someone who very carefully chooses how to project himself in most situations, and I wanted to show that somehow.

Anyway, the podfic runs 01:47:20 and you can find it on AO3.

i put my hand out, unfolded, into the sunlight by carafin (Akaashi/Bokuto) is so, so lovely. I mean, it has magic realism and Bokuto discovering his love of baking and the rest of Fukurodani being very long-suffering - what more do you want? And the narration feels very Akaashi, A+++.

This was pretty much finished for a long time before I finally posted it because I was unsure what to do about the fact that I kinda mispronounce Bokuto's name. <.<'' In the end it just feels way more comfortable to say it the way I did, so I decided against rerecording the entire thing. I hope it's not too distracting! 

It's 32:41 and you can find it on the AO3.

Ahaha, so. Recording KUNIMI, SOBS WHISPERER by psidn (Kindaichi/Kunimi pre-slash) was something of an impulsive decision. This story is the crack I never knew I wanted. Kunimi. Kindaichi. Lots of crying over TV dramas. Oikawa being a petty little shit. Fuck, I love it. I also never had more fun while recording something - I was just laughing at my own over-the-top performance all through recording and editing. And here you can probably really tell what I meant about Oikawa's voice. I had so much fun with that, omg. 

There are very few clear official pics of Kunimi, but in all of them he looks incredibly done with everything. It's pretty amazing. 

Please check this podfic out, I am so happy with how it turned out. :DDD  It runs 13:34 and is here on the AO3.

Belated post is belated because I didn't have time on Sunday and straight up forgot yesterday. Why didn't I have time, you ask? I was busy watching the world cup final, duh. And speaking of which: WELTMEISTEEEEEEEEEER!!!  world cup stuff )

Anyway. There's actually not that much to talk about, since I spent most of last week on a trip to Hamburg with my parents, which was fun. But also exhausting, dear god, my feet. In the remaining days I didn't revisit anything, so let's jump right into the new stuff:

Kuragehime / Jellyfish Princess )

Kuroshitsuji / Black Butler )

Next up, another section. Because I keep wanting to talk about my regular shows that don't meet the criteria I initially had for these recaps.

Ongoing stuff:

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun )

HunterxHunter )

Hello there, Internets! How's it going? Guess who's (almost) done with Uni? :DDDD Final exams are over, and as long as I didn't fail horribly, all that's left is the oral exam in September and then I'll get my Bachelor of Laws! Hopefully. <.<

While I wait for the results, I have the entirety of July off from work/classes, and aside from editing podfic and exercising, I want to use all this free time to watch A LL OF THE MOVIES and ALL OF THE TV SHOWS and read ALL OF THE MANGA. I made a list and everything. And then I figured, hey, might as well write up some of the stuff I do. So here it is, week 1 of the stuff I watched! (More like 1 and a half weeks, really.) (Whatever.) (Also I contemplated naming this series of posts 'Eternal Summer' b/c Free!, but in the end I didn't.) (Y'all should appreciate my restraint.) (Hah.)

First up, things I ended up revisiting.


Kingdom Hearts )

Baccano )

Sword of the Stranger - Soundtrack )

On to the new-to-me stuff!

In the Flesh <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 )

The Raid )

Pacific Rim )

Drama CDs - xxxholic, Weiss kreuz, Project K etc. )
