Coherence doesn't live here anymore. [AKA HEAD MEET SPANNER] 
20th-Jul-2008 02:39 pm
Reborn - SPANNER TO HEAD, Baccano - BONK BONK BONK
I'd come home from One of Those Days that lead into One of Those Late Nights, and my father happened to call from overseas. So I told him, "Dad, if I ever want to become a lawyer in another life, please have somebody hit me over the head. Hard."

My father laughed, which only goes to show how well he understands my pain, and then he said, "I doubt it'll work."

And then I realised that if I began that way the ENTIRE POST would be all about law and it was VERY VERY SCARY and there really, really is something else I would rather talk about.


Reborn Chapter 202
...oh, my God. Amano hasn't made me this happy since Chapter 187.

ohgod, world. You can keep your Hibari, I only have eyes for Spanner.



the one 山本 comment:

I DARE YOU TO MOVE
I DARE YOU TO LIFT YOURSELF UP FROM THE FLOOR
I DARE YOU TO MOVE
I DARE YOU TO MOVE
LIKE TODAY NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.

THE END



so where was I - oh yes.




Tsuna you are my hero


I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW HAPPY I WAS, OH, MAN. RIGHT FROM THE MOMENT THE translation hit the community, I was so in love, LET ME COUNT THE WAYS EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE SORT-OF UNCOUNTABLE:


1. Tsuna called him Spanner-san

2. I LAUGHED SO HARD FOR ENTIRELY INAPPROPRIATE REASONS AT THIS:

ス「……………… 何を言われても完成時間は変わらない ウチのポリシー」
Su: What are you talking about, we can not change the time of completion, that is my personal policy.

Binktopia's translation here:


but oh god the original was SO FUNNY TO ME -

... Spanner
Y-y-you sounded just like a conveyancing lawyer right there
no I AM NOT JOKING
that, or a disgruntled property agent
DYING NOW
Wait I must explain: in the practice of the law of conveyancing, that is to say, the buying and selling of properties, the date of FINAL SALE and transfer of title to the property is more commonly known as the completion date, and in the days leading up to the completion date there is A LOT, A LOT AND A LOT of work to be done, so lawyers on both sides will be DYING GETTING ALL THE PAPERWORK in order, and also, IF YOU DELAY THE COMPLETION DATE, the party responsible for the delay will HAVE TO PAY FOR EVERY DAY THAT THE COMPLETION DATE IS DELAYED.


one day I will learn to stop seeing law in everything
...
BUT I SURE HOPE NOT

3. TSUNA PROTECTED HIM
WOW TSUNA THAT WAS QUICK
you made me one very very very happy person

also HOW ARE YOU SURE HE'S NOT GOING TO SHOOT YOU IN THE BACK OR SOMETHING
but damn, how is Spanner ever going to go back into the Millefiore like this?
IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN SO -
I DON'T KNOW what's going to happen next week, so I'LL JUST BE HAPPY WITH EVERYTHING I'VE GOT

I don't need the Varia or Xanxus or DINO (no, guys, why. I DON'T NEED AAAAAAAANYBODY ELSE, THIS, JUST THIS, IS AWESOME ENOUGH) or Hibari or ANYTHING ELSE BUT
WHAT'S RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. ♥



also. while I'm on the topic.
Why did no one see fit to inform me that Graham Spectre (or Spektor) of Baccano
IS, BASICALLY, SPANNER -
AS A RAVING PSYCOPATH


Okay, fine: this is probably because not many people watched Baccano, to begin with, and Graham only turned up in Episodes 14 - 16, which were released on the DVDs, and therefore not part of the 1 - 13 arc that was Baccano proper. BUT STILL.
Listen, does this sound familiar?

wow image explosion in here, guys


blond Mafia mechanic in a jumpsuit with a wrench

You see, his jumpsuit is meant to be blue, but he spends a LOT OF TIME IN DIM WAREHOUSES and the light makes it look GREEN.



DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN:


also god that is one huge-@$$ wrench


HE CAN STOP BULLETS WITH HIS WRENCH, GUYS
and DISMANTLE ENTIRE CARS WITH THEM
before they hit the ground









Also when he really likes someone, he shows his love by telling them that THEY CAN USE HIS WAREHOUSE ANYTIME. He's like my visual Spanner until Spanner gets animated, but I don't know if Spanner will get animated as PRETTILY as Graham did.






... the red-eyed guy is ANOTHER PSYCHOPATH NAMED CHRIS(topher)


what the hell guys it looks like some SPIDER-MAN moment

akjhsflhasfha;j;saj; I need to icon the latest chapter, like NOW.

Spanner will totally join the Vongola, once he finds out that his old flame Shou-chan said it's okay to have him killed. >:

Arghhhh Graham~! He's totally Spanner's long-lost twin cross-fandom. It doesn't help that he's voiced by Sugita. ♥ ♥ ♥
20th-Jul-2008 07:33 am (UTC) - yes you do
AHAHAHA YES. YES, YOU DO. SHARE THE SEXY LOLLIPOP MAN love. *wink*

... HIS OLD FLAME
HOW APPROPRIATE ♥
AND IT IS SO TRUE, DAMMIT. SHOUICHI IS ACTING. LIKE. A JEALOUS JILTED BOYFRIEND. "OH, HE'S SHACK(L)ED UP WITH THE VONGOLA BRAT? KILL HIM. NOW."

DON'T WORRY SHOU-CHAN I STILL LOVE YOU. I JUST THINK IT'S SO FUNNY. ♥

SUGITA MAKES GRAHAM SOUNDS LIKE A TOTAL PSYCHO. IE., PERFECT. Listening to his voice is like a SHOT OF MECHANIC MANIA STRAIGHT TO THE BRAIN.

LONG-LOST-TWIN INDEED. My jaw dropped when I set eyes on Graham because, REALLY, HE'S JUST LIKE ANOTHER SPANNER.
20th-Jul-2008 07:40 am (UTC)
*just downloaded the latest chapter*

4851 is just so cute. XDD Shou-chan misses the sex-within-mosca when all he gets now are marshmallows-involved. )8

I need to watch Baccano, if just for Sugitan and Spanner's twin. *A*
20th-Jul-2008 07:49 am (UTC)
GOOD TIMES AHEAD ♥

... DIES LAUGHING. Oh, poor Shouichi. In my head Byakuran DEFINITELY was the spanner in the works for the Shouichi-Spanner relationship. WHY DO YOU NEVER SHARE, MARSHMALLOW-SAN.

I'M SURE TSUNA SHARES. I BELIEVE IN 482751.

Sugitan. THAT IS TRUE. *ruffles his hair*

watching Baccano: I THOUGHT THE SAME THING TOO. EXCEPT THE DARN THING IS VERY HARD TO FIND. The torrents I can locate for the Graham episodes seem to be dead. You can DL a Graham preview for Episode 14 here: it's on mediafire.
20th-Jul-2008 08:05 am (UTC)
Because Byakuran thinks the idea of work tools as kinky toys has lasted long enough before he picked Shou-chan to become his second-in-command.

I believe Tsuna shares too! XDD

Thank you! I shall dig around and see if I can find a decent torrent for the Graham episodes later. After the icons. >3
20th-Jul-2008 08:26 am (UTC)
Tsuna = loving Mafia boss. So unlike Byakuran. If Tsuna had been in Byakuran's position, the entire Millefiore would have been in love with him. ............... Shouichi would have been, I don't know, the Millefiore Gokudera (clearly I read too much half_sleeping fic), and Spanner could've been the mech-crazy (as opposed to baseball-crazy), detached version of Yamamoto.

Tokyotosho is usually my first stop for everything, and that had the dead!torrents. baccano has all the Graham episodes uploaded on Sendspace, incidentally: they're all friends-locked (unfortunately).

YAY ICONIFICATION. ;)
20th-Jul-2008 07:19 am (UTC)
You live!

I'd have translated the blurb as 'No matter what you say' / 'No matter what is said', 'I won't change the date/time of completion' -- dfjsdfj but same difference XD.

So so so lunch next week y/y?
20th-Jul-2008 07:30 am (UTC) - LUNCH WITH YOU? BUT OF COURSE IT!!! YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
omg HIIIIIII ♥ ♥ ♥

I live? Sweetheart I am so happy that YOU live! *beams* howareyousurviving? ♥ I'm okay, I just was dying over witness statements because I AM VERY SCARED whenever my witnesses say they NEVER did this or NEVER did that, especially if the NEVER does not seem factually absolute. ♥

OHGOD I AM AVAILABLE WHENEVER YOU ARE AVAILABLE NEXT WEEK. OR I WILL MAKE MYSELF AVAILABLE. ♥ I am horrified by the number of seminars you have next week and therefore VERY HAPPY whenever you are free for lunch. *SNUUUUG* Tell me what works for you? AND YES LUNCH, DEFINITELY: Monday still good for you?

NAW, I BELIEVE IN YOU. Date/Time of completion would be worded in a way that doesn't set off my LAW ECSTASY Meter. ;)

♥ EEEEEE YOUR ICON ALSO. so cuuuuuute.

20th-Jul-2008 08:12 am (UTC) - Re: LUNCH WITH YOU? BUT OF COURSE IT!!! YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Monday lunch! I'll try to catch our mutual partner in crime - I hear that she's going to be in office ;)

Of course I live! :D And I don't work on sunday, and I didn't do any work on Saturday, so it's been a Good Weekend.

Central? Sun & Moon? I'm going to have to take the train there/back, because walking takes too long (woe), unless Partner In Crime gives me a lift (hm, idea).

*grin* The backstory behind the icon? THOSE TWO HATE EACH OTHER KAY.
20th-Jul-2008 08:30 am (UTC) - ENDLESS :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Yes, she'll be in the office for final handover! ;) AHAHAHAHA YES, LET'S DRAG HER.

AND SUN AND MOON ALWAYS SOUNDS GOOD. ♥

GOOD! ♥ SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS, IN MY OPINION, ARE NOT MEANT FOR WORK. I think we should bill TWICE OUR RATES for work done on those days. (this is clearly my HAS NO CONNECTION WITH REALITY self speaking, but STILL)

I SUGGEST THAT WE TAKE YOU BACK TO OUR OFFICE WITH US, WHICH WOULD OBVIATE THE NEED FOR YOU TO WALK BACK TO YOURS. ♥ *plots kidnap*

IT IS OKAY IF THEY HATE EACH OTHER: THAT CAN ALWAYS BE FIXED. ♥ With out-of-context screenshots AND/OR THE JUDICIOUS USE OF PHOTOSHOP. ;)

EEEEE THIS ICON OF YOURS IS ALSO VERY CUTE.
20th-Jul-2008 11:43 am (UTC) - :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD FOREVER.
YES PLEASE. DRAG IS THE WORD. WITH WILD HORSES IF NECESSARY. Once you people disappear into your office, YOU NEVER COME OUT AGAIN.

I AGREE. OR AT LEAST 1.5 TIMES ;;.

*HEARTS SO MUCH* ONLY YOU AND I WOULD USE THE WORD 'OBVIATE' IN NORMAL CONVERSATION. *LOVES YOU SO MUCH*

WHY IS THIS ALL IN CAPS.

THE PREVIOUS ONE WAS TOTALLY AN OUT OF CONTEXT SCREENSHOT. AND THE ONE BEFORE THAT. DON'T WE LOVE OUT OF CONTEXT SCREENSHOTS \o/

I iconned it because of your Asch/Luke snognation icon ;D

SPEAKING OF ASCH. You need to come and see Asch again. He's growing so fast!
20th-Jul-2008 07:31 am (UTC)
AHAHAHAHA Graham yeah I loved him the moment I saw him XDDD Especially the dismantling car part, that was hilarious XD

... and I grew to like Claire more.
Because those episodes proved that he's just a growing shounen in love ♥
20th-Jul-2008 07:36 am (UTC)
He's so cute and SO PSYCHOTIC. ♥ A lot of people love him very very much and I can TOTALLY see why. ♥

HOW DID HE TAKE THAT CAR APART BEFORE IT FELL TO THE GROUND - wait it's anime, LEAVE LOGIC AT THE DOOR.

Graham's battle-lust kind of reminds me of Gurren Lagann's viral. When he first fights Ladd, it reminded me of Viral first battling Kamina.
Sob, Claire. I just associate that name so strongly with being feminine that it kind of gets to my head to think Claire = guy now, but it's okay. XDXDXDXD

HE IS TOTALLY A GROWING SHOUNEN IN LOVE, OMG. IT'S SO AWWWWWWWWWWWWW-inducing.
20th-Jul-2008 08:31 am (UTC)
.... I can't help it, I needed to add that icon too. NOW WE CAN SEE GRAHAM HEADSPANNARTIZED TWICE THE AMOUNT!

... I imagined this in my head:
Claire: Oh fancy meeting you here!
Rachel: Wha-
Claire: I am totally indebt to you, your idea totally worked! The one I liked wore the dress and.. and...! *_________*
Rachel: G-glad to hear that aha...
Claire: Now that you're here, i'm wondering what should I wear next?! Should I dig up my old suit? I have a red scarf but since she wears black should I start wearing black too? Oh no, what if she doesn't like men wearing black?! I must throw out my black clothes... and do you think I should get men's perfume to give a better impression of myself? And also...
RacheL: ........ (INNER SIGH)

Edited at 2008-07-20 08:33 am (UTC)
20th-Jul-2008 08:39 am (UTC) - AHAHAHAHA EXCELLENT
PERFECT ♥ NOW I CAN CHAIN-COMMENT WITH YOU AND DOUBLE THE HEAD-SPANNERING! ♥ I MEAN. IS IT NOT AN AWESOME ICON. Iconmaker has more here but the HEAD-TO-SPANNER one is STILL THE BEST. ♥

POOR LONGSUFFERING RACHEL AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. O CLAIRE YOU ARE TOO MUCH. ♥

ohgod YOU REMIND ME NOW OF BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT, WHEN YOU SPEAK OF CLAIRE IN A DRESS.
20th-Jul-2008 10:53 am (UTC)
I SAW THE MANY GRAHAMS.
But alas, this one attracted me the most in the end XD

Sorry for the late reply! I wanted to make this GIF which was inspired by this post OTL

Oh! I have not watched the movie, I am not able to watch until I get back to KL which .... is sitll a month away unfortunately.
20th-Jul-2008 08:17 am (UTC)
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOUR ICON. <33
(I have no idea why. It's just so cute.)

P.s: We should try that with our trident Mukuro-sama. :3
20th-Jul-2008 08:27 am (UTC) - but honey we would break the trident! or at least, I would.
I can completely see the trident coming apart due to constant TRIDENT-TO-HEAD ACTION. ;)

it is a very cute icon. I could stare at it for ages, it's so hypnotic.

eeee your icon is ALSO so cute. CHROME LEARNING ITALIAN.

You'd like Graham (the guy in my icon)! He's like Viral. A little bit.
20th-Jul-2008 09:35 am (UTC)
I have to admit... those protective instincts made chapter double-the-awesome. (poor yamamoto in that chapter, tho... it's hard to laugh things off if you look like you're choking on your own wisdom teeth. yeesh). I do love how this series is not hesitant about throwing Tsuna into as many fights as possible instead of waiting for his turn. As Reborn pointed out once, the only way for them to overcome the low odds against them is to learn as they go.

Hmm... I obviously need to watch Baccano now.

Oh, btw, e-mail me your number and decent times to call you. I'm flying tomorrow night, so I plan to call you and lacewood any time on Tuesday that works best to see about hanging out this week!

By the way, is Wall-E out in theaters?
20th-Jul-2008 09:52 am (UTC) - HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII ~
I love Tsuna's protective instincts, especially since he's generally the one being protected - it's so awesome to see his PROTECTIVE MAFIA BOSS side UNLEASHED. SO MUCH LOVE. I already adore Tsuna, this, THIS, only adds FUEL TO THE FIRE. ♥ I loved it when he RAN TO PROTECT LAMBO during the Lightning Battle, and his whole I WILL SAVE KYOKO when he hit the TYL!era, and THIS THIS THIS. ♥

Aw, poor Yamamocchan. IT IS OKAY HE WILL GET BETTER. I HAVE FAITH IN HIS RESILIENCE, ALSO I REALLY BELIEVE HE IS TOO STUPID TO DIE. ♥

I KNOW ♥ I was ACTUALLY JUST ABOUT TO SPAM YOUR LJ WITH A COMMENT THAT SAID, "HAVE A SAFE FLIGHT TENTH, WE'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU ♥"

Will be commenting to this entry with a screened comment with my number (will email you with other alternative numbers too) - let's catch up for dinner, if you can make it during the week, and DEFINITELY during the weekend! ♥ I'm really happy that you'll be here so very soon. ♥

Wall-E isn't out in theatres, yet, regrettably: it only hits this country on August 20, 2008. IF I COULD I WOULD MAKE THEM RELEASE IT EARLIER FOR YOU. D8

BACCANO LOOKS PRETTY AWESOME: a friend gave me the first thirteen episodes, so I could totally pass you that. Spanner-clone, unfortunately, is in episodes 14 - 16, which I don't have. It is, however, on Sendspace on baccano (locked), so if Sendspace works for you, that'd work! ;)
20th-Jul-2008 10:05 am (UTC) - Re: HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII ~
You're the best!

It'll try to contact you once we get settled in! Fair Warning! XD
20th-Jul-2008 10:10 am (UTC) - XDXDXDXD
omg no Tenth, you're the awesome one. ♥ ♥ ♥

FAIR WARNING, WHAT XDXDXDXDXD I'LL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT! ♥
20th-Jul-2008 09:47 am (UTC)
... MY YAMAMOCCHAN T__T

I like how Amano put question marks on Gokkun's and Gamma's faces - it made me think that they were sucking on pacifiers at first XD!

... and now you've got me putting 'Dare You to Move' on repeat.

I never really got into Baccano... I think the reviews put me off. How would you rate it against Gintama, KHR and TTGL?
20th-Jul-2008 10:01 am (UTC) - SHH SECRET
THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE, BECAUSE "MY YAMAMOCCHAN" = YOU. XDXDXDXDX

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA SUCKING ON PACIFIERS. THANKS HONEY NOW I HAVE THIS INERADICABLE MENTAL IMAGE. XDDD

DARE YOU TO MOVE IS SUCH AN AWESOME SONG AND TOTALLY FITS WALLED!YAMAMOTO HERE. YOU KNOW HE CAN DO IT, BABE, HE'S GOT IT IN HIM! IT'S NOT OVER TIL IT'S OVER!

AHAHAHAHA SADLY I WOULD NOT KNOW, having never watched Baccano myself. ;) So I cannot really rate it but I can pass 1 - 13 to you if you want 'em. ;)

OH GOD YOU KNOW I THINK MY EPIC LOVE OF GURREN LAGANN EVEN TOPS MY REBORN LOVE. I MEAN. IT IS SO GAR, AS MUCH AS I LOVE TSUNA AND EVERYBODY I DO NOT THINK THEY HAVE HALF THE GAR OF SIMON, KAMINA AND VIRAL.
20th-Jul-2008 10:45 am (UTC) - Okey it's all hush-hush now
Yamamocchan feels all gooey now coz Gokudera likes him/her! XDXDXD

You're welcome! XD I was trying to figure out what was covering their mouths at first (coz somehow my brain had blocked out the top part of the question mark, orz) then I took a step back before I realised that they were question marks!

It looks like dark!Yamamoto tiem again, though. I hope he really can smile like he usually does again!

... actually I think I can top you there (had very bad thought, ow). Here's a site for direct downloads of Baccano 1-16: just click on the episode and then on Chuukurai Download Manager.

Yes, THERE IS NO TOPPING OF THE GURREN-DAN GAR. THEY WILL DO THE IMPOSSIBLE SEE THE INVISIBLE TOUCH THE UNTOUCHABLE AND BREAK THE UNBREAKABLE. ♥ BTW, do you know about the uncensored episode 6?
20th-Jul-2008 12:30 pm (UTC)
THE ONLY THING THAT MADE SENSE TO ME IN THIS ENTRY WAS THE SPIDER-MAN MOMENT COMMENT. *DIES!*

B-but, I just wanted to comment to show that I am reading your LJ... but that I just don't know what to say most of the time? xD
20th-Jul-2008 01:48 pm (UTC)
Uuuh I sent you a message, I have no idea If you got it or not ._.

I know you're busy but I'd like a response? ^^; Just to let me know you even saw it?
20th-Jul-2008 03:08 pm (UTC) - D:
I DARE YOU TO MOVE
I DARE YOU TO LIFT YOURSELF UP FROM THE FLOOR
I DARE YOU TO MOVE
I DARE YOU TO MOVE
LIKE TODAY NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.


......i don't know whether to love you or hate you, because i found it EXTREMELY AMUSING but also because errr reisha and i did not stop laughing for about 5 minutes yesterday upon recounting it because it was just. Such A Way To Go. and i feel bad for having such thoughts. XD

(epilogue) at her place later:

analyse: o look, yama is still conscious
reisha: really?
analyse: ...ya well he is capable of grunting
20th-Jul-2008 03:22 pm (UTC)

Ogod, all of Shounen Jump made me SO DAMN HAPPY this week (cept for DGM, but that was a SPECIAL CHAP so I am in a love/hate relationship with it, sob).
20th-Jul-2008 08:55 pm (UTC)
I thought the last 2 chapters were made of total win (cuz it cemented my love of Squalo and Yamamoto), but this one takes the cakeXD

I think Tsuna suffers from ultimate uke syndrome because he just has this ability to make all of his opponents fall for him. And Spanner is like a total JapanophileXD

But dude, TYL! Dino and TYL!Xanxus have to show up soon. It's driving me crazy!
