Hi guys!

Well I'm the creator of mangocollection, and as I'm sure all you guys who are watching as aware, I haven't updated for a long time! gomen ne!

RL got pretty hectic, and though it has died down a bit now, I've been out of the manga/anime scene for a while. There are quite a few of you watching this comm though - thank you everyone who has friended us! - and therefore I have decided to offer up mangocollection to any manga/anime fan who would like to take over the reins and actually put the comm to use.

This comm was always intended to be a place where any and all fan-things could be posted, and hopefully discussed - so please if anyone would like to make this place active again, just reply to this post to let me know.

Thanks again everyone for watching!
Skysha

1:14 am - Actor: Takeshi Kaneshiro

skysha_tranqui
Watched the c-movie 'Lavender' earlier tonight, and it had Takeshi Kaneshiro (was in 'House of flying daggers' apparently) playing the lead male role - so basically I'm updating this comm with some movie info and purty pics, in order to allow myself the chance to squee a little...

9:33 pm - Scanlations: Takuhai Cupid side story (parts A & B) and Hidoi Otoko (parts A & B)

skysha_tranqui
Here I am with some treats! ^_^

Looks like I'm going to be pretty busy for a while, and I haven't updated in a while anyway...so I figured I'd post something while I had the chance. So here are two short stories to enjoy (they're cute, and who doesn't like bishy Angels getting together with sweet lil' humans?), and hopefully I'll update again soon.

12:24 am - New Love: Miyavi (pic and a video)

skysha_tranqui
Uh oh...I've done it again!

Since hearing some of Miyavi's songs on the radio, I really liked his sound and have started recognising when it's him now, even if I haven't heard that particular song yet. Well anyway, then I saw some pictures...thought he was cute...happened upon a youtube clip of Miyavi on a japanese chat show y*day, and I just...*huggles*

Yup, I've fallen in love again!

That brings my current loves up to four - Gackt, Hyde, Dir en grey, and now...Miyavi! ~~am I easy?

11:37 pm - Video: Gackt - Random Utaban eps

skysha_tranqui
Not sure what I've got here really, just found a ton more of Gackt on Utaban and figured I'd post it before I forgot. I can always sort it out later, but figured I might as well put them on now whilst I'm downloading a ton of other stuff anyway!

Follow the cut for the purties...

12:06 am - Japanese Advert: Gackt advertising EMA candy

skysha_tranqui
Haven't really updated properly in a while, so figured I'd share this cute lil' commercial I just got access to!

Gackt, advertising EMA candy (whatever that is, I now want some!) - and looking exceptionally hot (in my modest opinion).^^

8:26 pm - JRock Band: La'cryma Christi

skysha_tranqui
Read somewhere these guys are friends of Gackt, but even without that they're so purty to look at in their own right! And their music is really good as well (like the way I prioritise?).

7:21 pm - Band!

skysha_tranqui
La'cryma Christi - that's the band I couldn't remember the name of! VERY good, I really like them, but don't know anything about them yet because I've only listened to them on the radio so far. Will know a lot by this time tomorrow no doubt. lol

Also, Katri-o-na, they played the song you keep singing, from the Gackt funny vid!^^

6:47 pm - JRock/JPop Radio

skysha_tranqui
While I'm taking a break, I thought I might as well throw in a cool link as an update.

Basically this link takes you to an online radio - you have to click the JPop/JRock link in the list of programmes to get the right player, but it's really easy to figure out which button I mean, and it's so worth it!

Been listening to it as I do my essay, and it's played lots of L'Arc~en~Ciel, Dir en Grey, BoA, X Japan, The Pillows, Shiina Ringo, Miyavi, Psycho le Cemu, and there was another really good one as well, but I can't remember their name - so frustrating! But ANYWAY, as you can see there's a big selection, esp given I've only written the ones which most people will have heard of, so go and tune in...something you like is bound to play soon.^^

Okay, now I need to go back to my work. ;_;

3:35 pm - Pictures: Dir en Grey

skysha_tranqui
Oops...

I've managed to progress from Gackt - to Hyde and L'Arc~en~Ciel - to Dir en Grey in the fangirl stakes.

...not sure if that's a natural progression, or just me.^^

Anyway, to satisfy my LJ urge, and to demonstrate why exactly I've fallen in love with this band so quickly, here are some purty pics...enjoy!

6:47 pm - Discussion & Music Download: Dir en Grey - Dead Tree

skysha_tranqui
Dir en Grey...angry japanese rock music...I'm undecided on them at the moment.

The first song I heard (Ash) was a bit too formless for my liking - understandable because I don't generally like hardcore screaming music anyway - but Clever Sleazoid has some nice parts to it, and I've actually grown really fond of Dead Tree (uploaded mp3 behind the cut). So I think I just listened to the wrong song first, and am getting increasingly glad I didn't write them all off as being the same before I listened to more.

Kyo

...wish I could understand the lyrics; and am impressed the singer (Kyo) doesn't cut up his vocal cords given how abruptly he jumps from crooning to screaming. ^_^ 'Tis a talent he's renowned for apparently!

Is it just me or does Hyde sound so much like a japanese version of The Calling here?
