kaigou: this is what I do, darling (3 patience is not my virture)

Hello, fandom, my old friend. Been so long I've almost forgotten how crazy you are. Almost. It's okay, don't call me, I won't call you.

ANYWAY. So. Noragami. One of the first anime in like forever to really capture me, which tl;dr means: why the hell have I not seen in-depth, sparkling, thought-provoking commentary from either of the Emilys? -- [personal profile] branchandroot and [personal profile] annotated_em, that is. Or even [personal profile] starlady who is not an Emily, but does begin with a vowel, so that's close enough. ONE OF YOU. Satisfy my need for analysis! Or I shall be pushed to poke [personal profile] ivoryandhorn or [personal profile] phoebe_zeitgeist to carry the weight. Which I might do anyway, because analysis.

SOMEONE. AVAIL ME. My former fandom status as a near-BNF compels you!

Also, I just got home after enjoying two glasses of some really nice reisling, the name of which I totally meant to get and did not. In case you couldn't tell from the random name-dropping. Where is my next episode of Noragami? Or my next scanlated chapter? I'm retired from scanlating, so I'm able to say again that scanlators are toooooo slow. Damn it.

Should reisling be capitalized? Inquiring minds want to know. Leik yesterday.

I actually had to explain tl;dr to my sister this evening (while texting). Either I'm hipper than I realize, or my sister is seriously out of touch. I'm guessing the latter. Very eye-rolling, so sigh.

Also also, I realized while talking to my other sister that I AM the disruption at work. Go me! Doing prototypes and shit that will cause nothing but trouble for other departments, and this is WHY I was hired. This is awesome. I'm causing trouble and I'm getting PRAISE for it.

I'm considering changing my tag from "analysis is my chocolate cake" to "analysis is my greek beignet" because holy fuck you people, this shit is awesome. I am addicted to greek beignets. I shouldn't be, but I am.

I just realized that 'reisling' is another exception to the i-before-e rule. Which reminds me of the time I got sent to the principal's office because I demanded to know why 'science' broke the rule of 'i before e except after e'. Yes, newsflash, I have always been a troublemaker.

There was some other also to add, but I forget now. Where's my extensive analysis on Noragami already?

Nice to see you posting again! I haven't had much to say online lately, being consumed with work, my crappy commute, and trying to finish a new novel. (Am at the copy-editing stage, so NEARLY DONE, hurrah!)

Can't comment on Noragami, since I haven't watched it yet (am taking a break from anime right now, since it's been a while since I came across anything interesting enough to review, and have been watching Korean historical dramas instead).

re: wine

My bit of German pedantry for the evening: Yes, it's capitalized (being a formal name) and it's actually spelled Riesling, not reisling. In German, "ie" is pronounced "ee" so Reesling.

Yeah, in German, with the "ie" / "ei" pairs, the second letter is the one pronounced. Once I learned that, I never forgot it.

This from a non-native, no-longer-fluent German speaker with a German, "-lein"-ending name.

Blame Crunchyroll for not putting it up where I can get at it easily! (Incidentally, if you're in a violence-explosions-weapons geek girl with enormous gun sort of mood, Nobunagun is entertaining me; it's the only one of the current Nobunaga-craze shows to do that much so far.)

Honestly, I haven't heard of Noragami! But that's mostly because I'm not in a visual-consumption headspace right now. Can't focus enough to watch anime/read manga at the moment, and the current living situation does make it a little iffy. But I will definitely make a note of the name!

...okay, having watched the first four episodes last night, I can see the fascination. This one is interesting.
