ROUND UP!  
Legend of the Guardians
based on the books Guardians of Ga’Hoole
TRAILER
Beauitful animation! The story does not seem that new, but the protagonists sure are, OWLS! Never had that before and it looks amazing. The voice acting seemed pretty neat too, I liked it very much :) Lookin' forward to that one ♥

RAPUNZEL, uhm sorry it's TANGLED now. (Nice change :D)
Here the first teaser: TANGLED TEASER
It does not reveal... anything much, but I do like Rapunzel's voice and she's going to be the first animated Princess, right? I was a bit sad that this movie is not a 'real' Disney animation like The Princess and the Frog has been, but now I am not so sure anymore. I have seen glorious pictures of backgrounds and now I am looking forward to Tangled, too. (Especially after How To Train Your Dragon blew my mind ♥!)

Feeds!!
I made some more but first of all I want t share a feed with you, that I didn't create, the one of the author Neil Gaiman: HERE.

thecartdriver_feed is the feed for http://thecartdriver.com/. Yet another animeblog, I know ;D

brianandrew-feed is the blog a former author of THATanimeblog joined, so I started reading it too :)

kotowari_feed! This definitaly needed a feed ♥

As well as kotaku_feed ♥!

LOOK I HAS delicious ;D ➝ kitsch aus plastik: kitschprinzessin's delicious
135 tags in the following categories:
animanga, art, book, character-centric, comics, game, length, movie&tv, original, pairing, reclist&generaltags & warnings&ratings&more.
I use delicious mostly as a place to 'collect' the fanfictions, artists and authors I like. It's nice to have it all in one place. (Although unfortunately that's not true.)
Of course it serves as a reclist too, since I added only the fanfictions I especially enjoyed.

What I did try out waiting for a friend:


[OMG THEY CHANGED THE OPENING SONG. NEW LYRICS AND NEW SINGER. I guess the translation is better, but I liked the voice of the old singer better. I wonder about "Wind's Nocturne and Luna's in game singing now. ➝ more was on twitter ;D And I guess more will come once I start the game for real, but university is demanding :/]

ETA on Lunar:
HERE: THE OLD LUNAR OPENING WHICH I LOVED AND STLL LOVE ♥!!

In your dreams, magical thoughts
All things are real, unless you dream they're not
In your dreams, Love is the plot
Carried on wings of hope

Each of our souls, intertwine when we do
Instantly we see it
The time to grow and be it
When everything is pinned on a hope

Let rise the dreams of your heart
That innocent youth, careless and kind
Free to roam the breeze in love
Only when two brilliantly shine as one.


AND HERE: THE NEW LUNAR SILVER STAR HARMONY VERSION

Far away, far away, beyond the bounds where light fades from day
Bestride white wings forgotten by the winds of time
Surely our paths shall cross one day soon
As the future beckons to us with cheerful tidings and open arms

So now, our journey begins
Bound for a new world, filled with magic
Deep within our memories
Lies the door of legends open to us


Should you want to compare the other song of the game too, HERE IS SILVER STAR STORY'S WIND'S NOCTURNE and HERE IS THE SILVER STAR HARMONY VERSION OF WIND'S NOCTURNE (I haven't listened to the latter, because I want to see and hear it at the appropriate time in the game :D)
Singing along sure brings good memories. I adored this game and it is still one of my favourite 'fairytales' if you want. And of course one of my favourite JRPGs too.



Seen some time ago and the best movie I have seen in ages, most beautiful in every way ♥ ♥ ♥
I loved it from the beginning to the heartbreaking and heartwarming end ♥!
(The first movie where I enjoyed 3D too.)

I was reading From Girl to Woman: American Women's Coming of Age Narratives yesterday for university. As to be expected he author talks about Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, which you may know from the anime series Eine fröhliche Familie (Ai no Wakakusa Monogatari), if you haven't heard the title before. I watched and adored the anime when I was little and even though I did not indentify with Jo at the time (she was too old for me back then), I deeply admired her. She was some kind of role model I guess, even though I did not think of it that way, because I felt more than thought when watching series or reading books. (I stll do that most of the time today...) Anyway, reading Christy Rishoi's short analysis of Little Women deeply disappointed me (➝ the ending of the novel) and now I don't know if I ever want to read the actual book. DAMN.
(But other than that I enjoyed reading From Girl to Woman.)
