QUICK FANDOM ROUNDUP!  
Look at my gorgeous new default icon for [personal profile] blady. Ah, my genius boy ♥!
I wish I could play Symphonia again. (I can't because I don't have a Gamecube in B.) I desperately wish for a damn Wii. I really want to play Ratatosk! The new characters look so great (Richter Abend is just hot while Emil and Martha are so cute I could eat them!) and I am interested in the plot and of course in meeting my favourite characters again.
I also unable to refrain from sharing these two Raine icons, they're too hilarious and true. Raine is one of my favourite science geeks, ever! Oh Symphonia, I want thee!
Another new icon is the one I am using for this entry (on DW), isn't Llloy... the fucking best?! ♥! Emotional intelligent ;D

The postman made me happy today by bringing the "i-am-so-frustrated-with-uni-i-buy-books-order" package, or at least part of that order. So I am a proud owner of The Guin Saga: Book One: The Leopard Mask: Leopard Mask Bk. 1 as well asDas Lied der Bestien: Roman and Twelve Kingdoms, Volume 3: The Vast Spread of the Seas.
Even though the arrival of the books made me happy, I am sort of angry and annoyed by the last two books. I ordered Das Lied der Bestien: Roman by Uehashi Naoko in German ONLY because there was no translation available in English, but when I opened the book this morning, guess what? It is actually not translated from Japanese into German, but from English into German. One one level it makes me angry that I wasn't able to find an English translation, but on another level I am speechless that the book was translated using a translation! There are no words to express my outrage at that, I just think it's something you shouldn't do, especially in this day and age, wehre there is surely someone able to translate the book properly from Japanese into German. (And if it's too expensive then DON'T TRY TO PUBLISH JAPANESE BOOKS.) ACK!
The other thing that annoyed me is that I am now owner of the third volume in the Twelve Kingdoms series, but the second has yet to arrive... GNAAAH, I really, really want to read it, after I basically flew through the pages of Twelve Kingdoms - Paperback Edition Volume 1: Sea of Shadow, which I adored. (It is no surprise that I loved the book, since I really liked the manga adaption of 12 Kingdoms and was already half-in love with the characters anyway. I had high expectations and wasn't disappointed in the slightest. Though I am still sad that there is not much Keiki in the book, I adore him! But when he appeared he spoke with Koyasu Takehito, of course. I guess I was lying in my bed giggling through the whole first chapter. The whole book made me giddy and happy, I really liked it.


On further note, I realised that I really need to read Dianna Wynne Jones' Chronicles of the Chrestomanci, which is why I ordered Charmed Life. I have two (to my shame) still unread books by Dianna Wynne Jones on my bookshelf, but who can resist [personal profile] halcyonjazz's wonderful drawings of Christopher Chant, I surely can't. (this is my favourite of Christopher while this is my favourite of Cat Chant.)
