Due to current working of the fantabulous "Vague", I nor M will be on as much.
I'm really excited that the whole group is finally starting on it, although we are missing a lot of factors about it since... we're not as prepared.
All we need is:
- a brief setting/view on a Japanese city
- illustrations by each writer
We need the city most for this, so what were doing now is studying backgrounds of modern-set anime and a ton of Hayao Miyazaki's films. Durarara is kind of perfect and I love how we're all watching it together at the same time.
We would use Bleach but... Karakura Town is fiction and there's not a ton of episodes dedicated to showing the whole town.
Like last week we all made a Hulu account and watched two episodes of Durarara at the same time each day, and then talked about it after via Facebook chat. We noticed a lot of the background, and got to enjoy an amazing anime, so it's a double win.
Then me and M watched The Girl Who Leapt Through Time by Satoko Okudera, and I admit, it made me cry. She said she didn't even go to school the following day because it just ruined her sanity and made her emotionally wrecked. But anyway... we decided it was a really nice movie that shot a lot of the background of a Japanese city, so the whole group is going to watch it next Tuesday.
Damn, I love how organized we are.
Lastly, we need illustrations from each writer, as much illustrations as we can make. Yet the things are... not all of us are artists and those who are.. have a hard time having motivation/inspiration or adapting to Bleach's (Tite Kubo's) style. Me, whose spent many years trying to adapt to Naruto's (Masashi Kishimoto's) style, and Kyler and Sammie have the toughest time trying to adapt to it. While ********' M here is like.. Haaaaa gayyyyy.
