Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Comment with the most emo icon you have.

Bonus points if it is a Lonely Prince in his Stupendously Emo Tower of Ice and Incredible Emo-type icon.

Watched Brave Story translated in English with Niisan and Kaasan today.♥ I HAD A GOOD TIME AND I AM GOING TO MISS YOU VERY MUCH KAASAN :(((( But Chibi Kadaj will console himself by sending Kaasan numerous unwanted letters and postcards and OTHER strange things. Like Arashi Pocky, should the JE store ever stock it. It has gained a NEW FREQUENT VISITOR.

Brave Story figurines! I want my small pink cute baby dragon! But, a live one, not this. Still, inanimate version quite cute.


new story

Niisan! ♥ Thank you so much for the lovely Chinese hieroglyphic booklet! I SHALL PERUSE IT WITH GREAT DEDICATION AND WRITE YOU LETTERS WITH IT. :D Or fanfiction! :D ♥


I found the story much funnier the second time around, and not always in a good way.


IS VERY FUN TO WATCH and the kind of person I want to bitchslap into sense and then hug because he has had a most unfortunate and emo life. There is this scene where to get what he wants, he has to Experience the Experience that Brings Him The Most Personal Pain, and upon THAT happening, being a mage, he WALLS HIMSELF UP IN A TOWER OF ICE TO EMO ALONE and DESTROY THE WORLD, while Wataru, the hero of the story, BANGS IN VAIN UPON THE OUTSIDE OF HIS ICE TOWER OF EMO yelling, "MITSURU!!! LET ME IN!!!"

Also, the ending of Brave Story is just like FFAC, because it involves:

1. Main antagonist (Mitsuru in Brave Story, Kadaj in AC) dying in hero's arms (Wataru, Cloud).

(only Kadaj at least didn't DRAG OUT HIS DEATH SCENE the way Mitsuru did. I swear, by the end of it I was SHUT UP AND JUST DIE ALREADY. Unnecessarily long anime death scenes frustrate me, I'm always oh, he's dead! No wait, he's not dead. he's dead! No, he's still talking! He's dead! No, his eyes are still open! He's talking again! NOOOOOOOOO)

2. Main antagonist's body dissolving into SPARKLY GLITTER and rising up into the heavens and disappearing

3. to reunite with a beloved female family member
(Kadaj gets to be with Kaasan again, and Mitsuru got his sister back)

4. While the protagonist gazes up into the skies at the glittering wake

Don't get me wrong, I loved the movie! Even when the translation was clearly quite rubbish and at times did not reflect what was being said at all.

the rest of this entry is intentionally mitsuru-coloured:
BUSY DAY TODAY OHMYHEAVENS. Some great moments: had lunch with elvaron and law school classmates! ♥ went to buy dessert! watched movie with kaasan and niisan! ♥ had fun law-related dinner!

Have also come to the conclusion that lawyers have a strange profession-linked sense of humour such that, I am quite sure, if certain jokes were told at a mixed-profession table:

Everyone else: ... ?

rather mixed day all in all, with several things happening that I could have been quite happy without, like ARGH CLASS and emo thought of the day: Sometimes, when I try to say what I really feel, it comes out so nasty that I just don't say anything. Sometimes the relief you get from speaking your mind is completely outweighed by the amount of cleaning-up and apologising you have to do afterwards.

BUT IT IS OKAY OR WILL BE. Lawyer at dinner table tonight recounted story of how a client she'd heard of had gotten arrested for stealing garbage, because he'd broken into the garbage storage room to do it. It was not so much WHAT he'd stolen, but HOW he'd taken it.

Emo Icon! ^_^
24th-Aug-2007 05:31 pm (UTC) -
THAT'S PERFECT! It was actually the EMO PRINCE one I was thinking about, but you know what it's like with icons: when you think about wanting it you can't remember where it came from! XD Thank you so much!
24th-Aug-2007 05:18 pm (UTC) - ... I have too many emo icons to choose from?

Tell me about it. ^^; *huggles!* It's not about me, is it? FEAR. xD
24th-Aug-2007 05:50 pm (UTC) - That one's pretty emo!
Wolfram wins the emo contest. I've always sort-of thought of this Sammy icon as being emo, due to Sam's eyebrows.

FEAR ON PLS. But argh, it's not worth it, it's not going to solve anything. Crush one moment of anger/indignation is always better than the three-hours plus of recrimination, clearing things up, explaining yourself, finding new points of disagreement, ARGH.
24th-Aug-2007 05:21 pm (UTC)
emo? lol
24th-Aug-2007 05:44 pm (UTC) - *LOVES WOLFRAM*
THANK YOU SO MUCH! ♥ I love Wolfram IN ALL ICONS, especially when he's pretty when he emos. ♥ Thank you! ♥
24th-Aug-2007 05:23 pm (UTC)
24th-Aug-2007 05:23 pm (UTC)
More EMO!
24th-Aug-2007 05:24 pm (UTC)
D: He's almost too cute to be considered emo~
24th-Aug-2007 05:32 pm (UTC)
OMG! Win! xD

It's from Hercules, isn't it? O.o I can't remember... Commenting with Fantasia icon because it's the closest to unicorns I can get! *g*
24th-Aug-2007 05:30 pm (UTC)
The problem with having too many Jade and Soubi icons is that you can't quite choose which one is emo enough. So, I picked the Aya Brea (From Parasite Eve) one. x:

And the Mitsuru part of your entry is so hard to read. T_T
24th-Aug-2007 05:35 pm (UTC)
*laughs so hard as I imagine Jade and Soubi holding an emo contest* Even I can't decide who would win. The one you've got right now is quite nice! ♥

My favourite emo Soubi icon of yours is Misery Loved Me, content-emo wise I think megaton megane's Jade is unbeatable because I know this doujin's story (many thanks! ♥), and I actually thought this icon was emo.

I realise I have depressingly few emo icons. I have SO MANY HAPPY ones, several angry ones, and... maybe... two? sad ones? MISERABLE.

XD! I font-sized it to cyan, but then I'd quite forgotten that my LJ is cyan itself. It is readable now! ;) Usually what I do with difficult-to-read entries is CTRL+A. xDDDD
24th-Aug-2007 05:34 pm (UTC)
My most emo icon is this, I guess..

I didn't understand the ending of Brave Story ^^; I think anime movies are not very coherent in general, and this one felt like a series of set pieces rather than a full story, like they skipped several scenes or something.

Also look! :P
24th-Aug-2007 05:40 pm (UTC) - OH MY HEAVENS! THANK YOU SO MUCH! ♥
It's sweet, thoughtful emo! ♥

XDDDDDDDDDDD I don't know if I got the right ending to Brave Story, but I think Wataru somehow got it all: he saved the world of Vision, and then the Goddess of Fate returned him to his world, where everything wasn't fixed to where it was before, but became okay of its own accord, and he learned to live with his new life. But somehow MITSURU'S LIFE GOT FIXED, HOW. D:

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love the drawing, it's so cute! You've captured what I love about young!Luke and Guy's relationship perfectly! ♥ I probably have a sappier take on it than most, but my perception of the picture is, I'll be right here to catch you if you fall, and that it was Guy who taught Luke how to take his first steps. ♥ I love the look (AGH I ALMOST SPELLED IT LUKE) on Guy's face, so gentle! ♥ And baby!Luke going PANIC PANIC PANIC, and I am probably going all metaphorical into it, but I see the Luke falling down-picking himself up as a foreshadowing of Aczelius and also what I love so much about him, being that even when he falls, he picks himself up. Asch would have: *fallen* *EMO* *EMO* *picks self up* *MORE EMO*
24th-Aug-2007 06:01 pm (UTC)
I had a couple, especially a Cloud one ;;; but I ran out of icon space, so had to delete them. Here's one that I haven't used very much ^^.

I played more ToA till 4 am yesterday and am now an official Peony/Jade/Dist shipper XD childhood friend OT3s FTW.
24th-Aug-2007 06:09 pm (UTC) - LOVES YOU TO A MILLION PIECES
That my language also shatters into a million pieces under the FORCE OF MY LOVE FOR YOU. ♥ I LOVE YOU A THOUSAND TIMES FOR SHIPPING THAT OT3, I WOULD LIKE TO SEND YOU DOUJIN NOW. ♥ Except I have just realised I think I need another update on your address unless you are still living at the one you were living at in March?


I remember which Cloud icon it was! THAT REALLY WAS EMO. ♥ I pick this one as the most emo one you have now. ♥
24th-Aug-2007 08:12 pm (UTC)
i have a couple of them
26th-Aug-2007 08:58 am (UTC)
I love this icon! The girl is so cute, and she expresses PAIN so well. If I saw her on the streets crying I would go and give her a hug and make EVERYTHING BETTER. ♥

Still trying to get used to your new username! ;) BUT WITH TIME! ;)
24th-Aug-2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
like this one
26th-Aug-2007 09:01 am (UTC)
24th-Aug-2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
and this one too
26th-Aug-2007 08:59 am (UTC)
OH, I LOVE YOUR ICON SO MUCH. My icon was actually based on the events happening in your icon, the whole "YOUR PAIN IS MY PAIN" concept. XDDDDDDDD
24th-Aug-2007 08:14 pm (UTC)
okay maybe i have more than a couple.

done now D:
26th-Aug-2007 09:00 am (UTC)

24th-Aug-2007 08:28 pm (UTC) - Most emo? I have only one sad icon in my entire arsenal. ;)
I have to say that is a very cute dragon, and I'm not even partial to pink.
26th-Aug-2007 08:51 am (UTC) - Michael is taking up Plant Worship?
!!! I love the show! The cat in it is actually named Miina, though when I first saw it minus subs I thought her name was "Mina". ♥ I'm not partial to pink, either, but oh, that dragon! So small, so cute, and so useful! The flamethrowing ability comes in very useful to the hero! ;)
24th-Aug-2007 08:31 pm (UTC)
Not exactly emo, but it's the saddest icon I have. >:
24th-Aug-2007 08:33 pm (UTC)
This is Van trying to join the emo scene.

He even died his hair black. :o
25th-Aug-2007 12:45 am (UTC)
Mine's just freaking out. *fails* D:
25th-Aug-2007 01:56 am (UTC) - EMO ICON

Good luck for advo ♥
25th-Aug-2007 02:11 am (UTC)
This icon was made as my designated emo icon.

Also! Brave Story, I've been meaning to catch that for some time but I've been getting horribly distracted by 881. -__-ll Ahaha, failure. But it does sound good to watch, un.

26th-Aug-2007 08:39 am (UTC)
It's such a PRETTY emo icon, too! I love all the doves. Or pigeons. Birds.

! Brave Story was great fun. At least, I thought it was! ;)

Brave Story is still showing, but it's only showing at Cathay cinemas. ;) Hope you manage to see it! If not, there's always DVD.

I am vaguely curious about 881, but not curious enough to actually spend cinema ticket money on it. I am all D: at choosing the movies I want to watch carefully because of money constraints - movies are big-ticket (HA) expenditures, really, when you consider the going out food + expenses incurred while watching said movie.
25th-Aug-2007 02:18 am (UTC)
Ahahahaa so I got to the part where Luke thanks Asch for helping them, and I finally get the "totally more seme than you" jokes XD. Man, Asch...you're trying too hard. Come on, you know if you ask nicely, Luke'll be more than happy to.........polish that sword *smirk*
26th-Aug-2007 08:36 am (UTC) - It's a SEME CONTEST between original and replica! XD
Asch is such a pissy little bastard when it comes to saying Thank You, like a nice boy. You'd think he'd been raised with animals, the way he acts. XDDD I'm so glad you got to that part! XDDDDDD Asch is like this kid at the playground who indicates to the girl he likes that he likes her by pulling her ponytails and being MEAN to her, but only to Luke. He's sweet on Natalia. XDD

XDDDDDDDD Polishing that sword, INDEED!

*cue distressing images of sword-swallowing of the literal-and-figurative kind* XDDDDD

! Your first icon! Exemplifies emo! ♥ I'm particularly fond of "Let's Get Emotional" despite not being able to explain why, and F**K Emo With Passion gets a THUMBS-UP from me! ♥ *grin!* Thank you, these were great!
25th-Aug-2007 03:48 am (UTC)
i don't think i have any emo icons XD does this one count?
26th-Aug-2007 08:31 am (UTC)
It's beautiful! And yes, it certainly counts! Tamaki definitely counts! ♥ He's the Emo Prince I was thinking about to begin with! *griiin*
25th-Aug-2007 05:14 am (UTC)
Well it could be this one.
26th-Aug-2007 08:15 am (UTC) - YOU'RE MY HAPPY PILL, PARTNER. :D
*beams!* I actually WAS thinking of that icon, too, when I was wondering about Possible Candidates for Emo Icons!
25th-Aug-2007 07:42 am (UTC)



I fail

26th-Aug-2007 08:15 am (UTC) - !!!! NOT AT ALL! YOU WIN!!
No, no, no, you win! ♥ I love Genis! And I love emo Genis icons! Thank you so much, this one was SO PRETTY: I had no idea he could look that pretty (and cute!) while being emo! ♥ BRILLIANT CHOICE! ♥
25th-Aug-2007 08:52 am (UTC)
HOMGZZ. Brave sTORRYYY. <3 Sorry I haven't commented for a long time XD;; <3333 And and. LUNCH. I mean, lawyers for the win~ They do have a strange sense of humor, but it makes them win cases. XD

<---is that emo enough? I've got a few more lollll. xD--->
26th-Aug-2007 08:12 am (UTC)
! Brave Story, indeed! ;) I hope you enjoyed it if you watched it! I emitted lots of hearts at it, especially at Mitsuru. XDDDD

! *snug!* It's perfectly okay! *beams* Comment whenever you want to and if you have the time, I know online and RL life can get busy! *beams*


Hee! ;) I wish lawyers were allowed to display their sense of humor more. It tends to come out more during non-formal moments, which is a pity. Though you have instances of judges being terribly funny in cases and in court or at trial.

Definitely emo enough! ;) Ame-warashi from XXXHolic, right? Is she crying?! I thought she was the kind that's too-tough-to-cry. Unless she has to cry to make it rain, or it's rain! XD
25th-Aug-2007 03:56 pm (UTC)
I watched Brave Story and was not very impressed actually. ^^;; The way it was told seemed to indicate that there was a very interesting backstory/world building but the movie totally skipped over it! >.< If it wasn't for the plot twist near the end, I would probably write it off totally. ^^; I much prefer Paprika (did you watch that one?). ^_^
26th-Aug-2007 08:06 am (UTC)
XD I really loved Brave Story when I first watched it, but on the second watching the movie seemed to reveal minor flaws I hadn't noticed before. I enjoyed it more because I understood it more, though. *snug* I wish you'd been more impressed by the movie, but I'm glad you liked Paprika! XD I wanted to watch Paprika, but didn't have the time, unfortunately. Maybe when it comes out on DVD? :) I thought Paprika was probably allowed a more complex plot because it was targeted at a different audience, but I do suppose I'll have to see it first.
25th-Aug-2007 05:42 pm (UTC)
got lots of emo icons, but havent used this one in a while...

also *hugs* regarding inner Snape being repressed, and suggests that inner Snape should be allowed to come out and do his snarky thing once in a while before he decides to burst out of the closet wearing Neville's grandmother's clothes
26th-Aug-2007 07:58 am (UTC) - I really love that icon!
I love Louis, to pieces. I'd always thought I loved Lestat more, until I realised that I was terribly protective of Louis in a way that suggested my heart belonged to him. XDDD! Beautiful icon, by the way, I've always loved that icon of yours.

*hugs you tight!* Thank you so much - I really needed that. I LAUGH HYSTERICALLY AT THE MENTAL IMAGE of Snape coming out of the closet, and oh! I watched the first Die Hard beginning-to-end at last just last week, it was AMAZING! Alan Rickman was so good, and his American accent was hilarious. I have the Special Edition, so there's commentary where Alan Rickman said that he got that extra scene where his character meets Bruce Willis's because he was clowning around with accents and the producers realised he was great at them, and therefore gave him the villain-meets-hero scene. SO COOL.
25th-Aug-2007 05:55 pm (UTC)
and so it turns out everyone has an emo icon except me XD
*tries to choose something vaguely emo and fails* I shall give you my *resigned smirk* icon XD
26th-Aug-2007 08:01 am (UTC) - I give you Aschsmirk in return! XD
I can't actually tell who is it in your icon, though he reminds me of Eiri Yuki from Gravitation. *hides in a corner, this was not meant to be an insult!*

XD! Resigned smirk is good, too! ;) But I think it's GOOD that you don't have emo icons. Most of my emo icons arrive because they're characters I like, or simply, I need non-happy icons to reply to sad posts with.
