Return of one of my favorite memes 
20th-Oct-2008 12:49 pm
NHnH: Yuuto / Um...
This time from ephemery:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

1. - A nice little Harry Potter icon made from thefirewolf's awesome Chamber of Secrets poster.

2. - That would be me, about 5 or 6 years old. Cutest. Photo. Ever. *nods*

3. - LOL, I almost thought you only chose four icons at first, before I remembered I had this one as well. Probably the most brilliant idea for an icon I've ever had - instead of color it uses transparency, so the picture is always the color of the background. Well, obviously doesn't work on white, though. Here's the same icon on different background colors:

4. - I seriously wanted to make this icon ever since I saw that scene. Didn't find a good enough screencap of the Exia to paste there for a while, though. Just a little funny thing. Because we all know Setsuna fails at common sense.

5. - The only icon of these five that was not made by me. I really wanted a better Louise icon than the one I had and this one was really beautiful. She's quite happy here, even though it's a scene after the Throne attack. And so sad at the same time...

edit: hydrangea asked for these:

1. - I get to explain this one a lot as well... Comes from another icon meme where you got an icon based on two of your interests. This one was Dungeons & Dragons + poetry. :D

2. - Only the truth! Well, sometimes it feels quite like that, so I just had to add this one the moment I saw it.

3. - I'm way too lazy and this was quite perfect for me again.

4. - Well, it's hard to bring someone secretly to Australia unless they're made compact, you know. ;) Yes, I get to explain this one quite often too.

5. - Kuugen from Wagaya no Oinari-sama in the male form. Because he/she/it/the damn fox is awesome and so is Nakamura Yuuichi. This even used to be my default icon for a while.

edit2: abarero's picks:

1. - Well, as you could already see from my icons page there, this one was made for the LOLGundamz theme at gundam00awards. But the text also fits this scene so perfectly. :D

2. - Just another nice-looking ef icon. No other reason for using it, really. Plus that guy looks a lot like I used to look when I was about 7 years old. :D Yes, 7.

3. - The Reiji Maigo from Shakugan no Shana. Hard to explain to someone who hasn't seen the series, but basically a device that restores its owner's power of existence at midnight. P.S.: Go watch Shakugan no Shana now!

4. - My one and only T.M. Revolution / Nishikawa Takanori icon. From the icons I made of abingdon boys school's Nephilim PV. Favorite musician and all...

5. - My stealthy obligatory Monty Python icon. Sir Roderick from Jade empire, voiced in the game by John Cleese. Quite an... interesting character, that one. :D

Haha, the transparent icon is so cool. And I remember laughing really hard at no. 4
20th-Oct-2008 02:04 pm (UTC)
Nice. I still love how you thought those transparencies. :D

So, me wants to participate

Makes me want to play around with transparency myself.

And ask away! I've already been asked the following (Normal - 83, Happy!, Normal - 77, Normal - 25, Normal - 10, Normal - 101)

It really needs a fitting picture for the transparency. I've tried this a few times later as well, but nothing has been this good.

And I'll pick:

Wait, Nakamura Yuuichi is in Wagaya no Oinari-sama, too? Damn you for feeding my inner seiyuuwhore...

Oh and feel free to choose 5 icons from me, I'll add them to my post the next break I take from procrastinating this stupid report.
21st-Oct-2008 09:05 am (UTC)
Too little of him, though...

And icons:

Dangit, world needs more Nakamura's roles... I'm even watching Clannad now, after vehemently being against it, simply because of him. And I admit, I am enjoying the comedy a lot. XD

Added to my post. Now back to working on that report, hnnngh~
21st-Oct-2008 09:41 am (UTC)
Hehe... He's about the only reason I started watching Lolbarrels. And true, he's great in Clannad. Reminds me a bit of Alto. Well, actually the other way around, since I watched Clannad before Macross. Quite a similar attitude, really. :D
21st-Oct-2008 09:51 am (UTC)
Well, Lolbarrels sorely needs more of him, though episode 3 is starting to look promising for seeing him more in the future. He sounds quite different in Lolbarrels though, he's using a deeper voice than most of his other roles I've heard.

I can't remember the first role I heard him in but I really started liking him in Gundam 00. (G00 got me to like not only Nakamura but also Furuya Tooru.)
21st-Oct-2008 10:03 am (UTC)
Yeah, Gundam 00 for me as well, and Clannad pretty much sealed the deal.
21st-Oct-2008 10:12 am (UTC)
I'm still going through Oofuri, too, because of Nakamura. :D Loving his voice acting in that one, though Mihashi pisses the crap out of me most of the time.

Oh and Macross Frontier I started watching solely for the combination of Nakamura and Kamiya Hiroshi. (Kamiya's my biggest seiyuu favourite. XD)

Damn I'm sure you can tell this report I'm writing is REALLY REALLY interesting. :P

Macross Frontier... I started watching just because it was the Menclave QC test. :P No, really. It does have some great voices, though.

And yeah, that report seems fun indeed... :D

This report is going to be 85% bullshit, like most of the stuff we have to write anyway. >:D Good practise and I'm lucky I'm fairly good at bullshitting my way through these things.

I have this insane love/hate relationship with Macross F. I totally adore some of the characters, totally loathe some, and I'm absolutely infuriated at how the story turned out in the end. And seems like most of the budget went into the fabulous CGI scenes vs. proper animation since there's some surprising QUALITY in some of the episodes... In the end I don't really know why I like it when most of the time it makes me want to bash my head against a wall, but oh well. Maybe I'm a masochist?

Argh I better shut up about MF before I start ranting for reals. orz
