More Disjointed Thoughts [Apr. 14th, 2008|04:51 am]
[Current Mood |depresseddepressed]

-Code Geass R2 redeemed itself with episode 2.

-I spent most of today drugged/asleep with allergy meds. But I can breathe with my mouth shut now!

-Still horribly, crushingly depressed. Actually a little worse off than before. This makes... three weeks solid, now. Hrm.

-Birthday's on the 25th (a Friday). Anybody wanna hang with me sometime that weekend? Debating whether I wanna do the party/hanging-out/food thing. All you people I know are invited, if so. I'll be 21. Craziness.

Gift ideas:
-Pokémon Season 1 Part 3 DVD
-Mushishi vol. 3 DVD just got it
-Speed Racer vol. 4 DVD (with the car) just got it
-Metalocalypse DVD
-Venture Bros. season 1 DVD
-Tsubasa/XXXholic Movie DVD 2-pack
-FF7: Crisis Core
-Tsubasa manga vol. 15+
-XXXholic manga vol. 10+
-Fables graphic novel 7+
-Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations for DS

I'd also just love a nice, cheap, burn-it-yourself mix CD with songs you think I'd like. Just try to vary 'em up (don't make them all entirely techno, rock ballads, or video game bg music).

I have one Hannah made me years ago and one Wendi made me in high school, and I love them both.

21, eh? Our little Beth is growing up. I'd be up for some birthday hanging out. Should I bring the laserdisc player and Star Trek Animated? Or just Zombie Honeymoon?

Adding gifts to the post.

I'll give you a call, most assuredly.

-And don't worry about the CD thing if you're unable to make one. I could just use a change in music scene since I'm in a bit of a rut.

Pokemon page 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

p10 -
Ash: Professor Oak! And a Pokemon!

Oak: You stupid thing! [he says 'bakamon'. 'baka' = stupid person and 'mon' comes from 'mono', which means 'thing', and 'bakEmono' (with e) means 'demon', but that's probably unrelated to this.]

Oak: Are there guys who come to a place like this emptyhanded?!
Come! I'll give you plenty of preaching! [saying what Ash shouldn't do etc..]
Ash: HIE- [hehhhh... sighing kind of sound]

Oak: When talking about/saying Pokemon, there are a lot of ferocious wild ones.
It was a good thing that I happened to pass by...
Have you learned it a bit by experience?

Oak: ...saying that, it looks like he hasn't learned it by experience at all.
Ash: Aah... real Pokemon are clearly good aren't they...

p11 -
Oak: He loves them so much I don't have any choice, do I...? Uhuh...
Charmander: Char~~

sign: Pokemon laboratory/research institute

Gary: Grandpa! You didn't get tired of waiting right!

Ash: Yo!
Gary: Gaah! Ash!?

Gary: What does thi smean, grandpa!?
Oak: Ah well, a few things did happen...
Gary: Such a...
Oak: I'm giving him a Pokemon too.

p12 -
Oak: So, please choose the one you like.
I only heft three ones [Pokemon] left with me...

Ash: u~~n. (thinking sound that can be used to mean agreement or doubt or anything else.. XD maybe translatable as 'hmmm' or 'hmhmmmm'?)

Ash: I'm so lost...

Ash: Ah, this one!?

Ash: Professor! This guy, he is the one who saved me earlier right!
Oak: Hm? That's so...

Ash: I decided! I take Charmander!
Gary: Then I will take Squirtle!

p13 -
Ash: And then what will be of this one...?

Oak: That one is m.i.n.e.♥
Because it has stayed with me so long
it will become lonely when I release it entirely.

Gary: Well! Ash!
Let's try to let them fight here now!

Gary: That's okay right? Grandpa!
Oak: I don't care...

Ash: [yo-shi! is a sound people say when they do/will do something that takes effort. Translate as ...? ] I'll take that match!

p 14 -
Ash: Gooo Charmander!!

Gary: Try! Squirtle!!

Ash: Charmander! Your favourite attack!

Re: Pokemon page 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

Awesome! I've finished up editing them all, so here are my notes:

-For the sighing sound I used "aw, man" since it seemed appropriate in context. I'd usually just put in "sigh" because English is rather uncreative with sound effects for it, though.

-I did use "hmm" for u~n. ;)

-I'm pretty familar with "yoshi" and its incredibly versatile function. You can just put "yoshi" whenever it occurs and I'll pick something that works well for the context. In this case, I used "All right!" :D

On page 12, there's a sound effect in the bottom left panel beside Gary. I assume it's the sound of picking something up, yes?

Oh, and I won the 4koma with the Magikarp images in it too. :3

Page 15, 16, 17, 18

That sound on page 12 is 'leer' (like the Pokemon attack XD). Gary is looking at Ash.

p 15 -

Gary: Hehe! It's not effective!
sfx: [water extinguishes fire -sound]

Ash: The flame is ineffective!?

Gary: Return it!
Water gun!

Ash: Ah!
Let's avoid it!
sfx: [quick movement]

Oak: Ooh...
This is...!

p 16 -
Oak: It seems Gary knew to choose Squirtle who's strong against Charmander...
On the other hand, Ash's ability to decide promptly!
These two have a sense of Pokemon!

Ash: Because the flame doesn't work...
sfx: [heavy step... thump?]
Ash: It's the tackle!! [he tells Charmander to use that]
Gary: Aah Squirtle is...!!

Ash: We won♪Won♥
Gary: Tsk!
What, you!
Get serious!

Ash: Professor...?
Oak: I have something I want to ask you two!

p17 -
Oak: I want you guys to complete this!

Oak: Originally this was a job I wanted to do myself, but I'm not young anymore...
What do you think? Can you take over for me?

Ash: I understand! Professor!
Gary: Leave it to me grandpa!

p18 -
Gary: If we decide that I'll leave quickly!
Ash! Because next time I'll certainly win!

Ash: Because it's me and you, we will not lose!
Right! Charmander!
Charmander: Char!

box: And like this, my journey with Pokemon has begun!

Hurray! We have our first finished chapter. *sniffle* It's such a beautiful moment...

Sound effects in order:

Would you like to see the Zipped file first and check the results before I distribute it? :3

I've uploaded it to Sendspace and Megaupload for you. Let me know what you think!

If you notice any changes that need to be made, I'll make sure to fix them before putting out the links. ^^

We're apaprently quite popular indeed... The Mediafire link has been downloaded over 80 times. I can't check how many times the other links have been downloaded, but I think that one alone is fairly impressive. :D

Hello! I finally made it over here!

Anyway, what I had commented about was related to the sales post. The Scyther clip I sold you? Somehow I completely missed that someone before you bought the trio that included Scyther, and I feel so terrible that I didn't catch it sooner. ;A; I wanted to let you know before I issued a refund for the clip, BUT I do have some unique Scyther items to give you as freebies to make up for my blunder. I feel really bad about this, but if I ever see another one of those clip sets I'll pick it up and let you know right away. :3

How odd... I wonder who bought it? I didn't think anybody else was buying Scyther stuff other than me. Oh, well... Win some, lose some. ^^;

It's okay, don't worry so much about it. If you do find another one, I am very much interested, though. Thanks for letting me know! <3
