Yes! I’m assuming it was the detergent. The hidden part of this post uses the word “suppositories,” and is precisely as unpleasant as that word’s presence would imply.

This is the manga where various countries are anthropomorphized.

Hungary and Liechtenstein are the only girls. Yeah, I don’t know. The author’s notes are like this:

This is a matter of no importance, but I like to make England speak using typical Tsundere words. “Don’t misunderstand! The pound is high for my sake!”

I appreciate the shoujo-manga absurdity of this conversation between the Holy Roman Empire and Italy. I showed it to Mom. “…who’s “grandpa”?” “The Roman Empire.” “No!” (whole storyline here)

It is basically deeply inappropriate in every way. In what I’ve read, the only Muslim country to show up is Turkey, who is coincidentally also the only non-cute country. Bah. Egypt was there for like one panel at one point, and neither the rest of Africa nor South America have appeared yet. You’d think she he (!) could at least work Brazil in there…

It's only a week late!

All For the Heart of the Celery Queen, Chapter 3 - 6735 words )

This isn't NaNoWriMo; it's part of an attempt to address my fundamental productivity problem, that being that that I can never work on just one project at once. Until recently, I've been trying to force myself away from that. But what'll happen is that I'll have this really great idea for Steampunk London-and-Paris Amnesiac Spy Adventure Game, but I'll have designated my Active Project as Shounen Jump-Style Demon Hunters Who Quote Poetry Serial Novel, and I'll guiltily try to force myself to work on that and end up getting nothing done. I suspect that my brain may just not be amenable to this sort of focus for anything that's not for a class or work.

So what I'm trying to do right now is just make myself sit down and write as much as I can on whatever thing I'm obsessing about at the moment, rather than trying to guilt myself into working on something I'm not feeling at the moment. So yesterday morning I wrote a page of Steampunk Gay Meiji-Era Civil Servants Novel and a page of the Shounen Jump thing, last night I wrote twelve pages of the The Chosen One Has Been Cloned Medievaloid Fantasy YA Novel, and today I did an edit of this, and will probably work on something else later.

1) If you’ve seen Mushishi, do you find Ginko’s VA incredibly smarmy, especially when he’s talking to young women?

2) Regardless of your answer, have you spent any time around Japanese guys?
