1/2 : An OsoKara Zine

So today we released the OsoKara Zine.Yay

Putting this zine together had been quite challenging and I'm just glad that it came out beautifully. But surely if not for all the effort of the contributors it wouldn't have been this close to being amazing. And I really appreciate all the help I got from here... from Nogi who served as my "eye" for details because god knows I have none, from Nori who gave good advices for the zine, from Tundrea who checked the zine so thoroughly and for Komo and Para who supported me.

I probably increased my skills in MS Word because of this. I mean, I only used the program for typing and I have a slight idea that I can use it for functions that I need for the zine but building it all from there... that was unexpected.

Anyway, although I admit that there were times I got really annoyed and stressed because of this, it was all still good in the end. I "met" more people in the fandom and I think I left a good impression even amidst the problems. So in the end it's good... and in the end the zine still felt like it was worth something to do.

So anyway, click here to view the zine and here to download.
But if you wanna see the zine. Here it is ready for your perusal:

2016: A review about shit I wrote

This is a pretty boring and self-indulgent review because this is the first time I'll be doing something like this. Why do something like this you ask? Because I believe that 2016 had been the most productive year I had when it comes to writing.

So even if I have no data to compare my shit with. Here are the numbers I've gathered:

Total fanfics: 10 (9 are for Osomatsu. 2 still ongoing)
Original fics: 2 (1 still ongoing)
Revision: 1 

Now let's talk in WORD COUNT!

Total published words for original fics: 16095
Total published words for fanfics: 95,858 (with 93,802 for Osomatsu fanfics. WOW)

Total published words: 111,953

I noticed something very important while I was getting these word counts. The last update I did for Heartbeats was on April 2016, and the first fanfic I've written for Osomatsu-san was also last April 2016. Something happened to me that day. It's like the day I've casted my humanity aside and jumped into this bottomless dark pit. Back then I really thought that after making one fic I could easily go back and be normal again. Apparently, that was not the case.

I really blame Osomatsu for everything. I'm just so inspired all the fucking time and it's so easy to write in this fandom. I enjoy it though, and I still have so many things I want to write that I hope I get to put all these ideas out there.

Hopefully 2017 would also be kind to me! And if this fandom continues, here's to reaching 100k word count for JUST Osomatsu-san!

First post of the year

Started my year with the usual suspects: fandom, overtime at work, spending money on shit and of course thinking of doing something new!

So today I finally tried that kenjutsu class. It was so much fun!

There was an advance class when I came in so basically I just had to try my best and mimic everything. I sucked though and I can't even remember how many times I said sorry.

But in the end it was a good experience and now I'm thinking of making it a regular thing. It's a nice exercise and it's something I want to do.

SOMA watches YOI ep 10 ending credits

SOMA is and will always be a family to me. It seems like no matter how old we get or where we are in life it's always so easy and so comforting to come back to them. With them, I have no fear of judgment (maybe because all of us are just so rotten? :P) and no fear of being ignored.

It's funny that even if we're already drinking wine, even if some of us already been to Japan and even if we talk about family and work, we always seem to go back and talk about anime, manga, weeb stuff. You really can't take SOMA away from a SOMAjin and that is the best thing about it.

Anyway, that is not really what I wanted to post (I just felt the need for an introduction) I'd just like to show you adult weebs being weebs.

Osomatsu fangirling at Mandarake

First night in Japan and basically what the whole trip was like most of the time

"What's the difference?"
That's basically begging me to explain all about Osomatsu
