The third volume of both Death Note (22MB) and Rurouni Kenshin (28MB).

For those of you that have actually been paying attention, I skipped uploading the next parts of X/1999 and xxxHolic because no one has been downloading them. It's a shame, really. Every single one of these manga are incredible, and if you're not reading them, you're really missing out. Big time.

But I know how it is; there's plenty of things that I can't download right now because of the bandwidth restrictions that my college has put on everyone's connections. But even if I'm not downloading something, it's certainly not for lack of interest. I'm still aching to get my hands on the Pet Shop of Horrors OVAs that [livejournal.com profile] aya_katsera uploaded ages ago. But the 200MB per day limit makes that impossible for me. [/fangirl angst]

But for those of you that are downloading, what do you think? I hope you're enjoying them as much as I did. ^.^

Manga:
Death Note: Volume Three
Rurouni Kenshin: Volume Three

No music uploads for today; maybe tomorrow. (Curse the bandwidth restrictions, and their Internet Nazi enforcers! ¡Viva la Upload Resistance!)

The weekend is finally here, and it's given me a bit of a reprieve. So I'm going to take advantage of it and upload a few things.

Here's the second volume of both Death Note (24MB) and Rurouni Kenshin (38MB).

Manga:
Death Note: Volume Two
Rurouni Kenshin: Volume Two

Music:
This is what I have of the House of Flying Daggers OST. The movie itself is like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, or Hero; basically, think Chinese martial-arts drama, and you'll get this movie. It doesn't matter if you've seen the movie or not, though; the music is just gorgeous. I weep for anyone who doesn't download these songs...
"Bamboo Forest"
"Beauty Song"
"Farewell"
"Lovers"
"No Way Out"
"Taking Her Hand"
"The Echo Game"

Hey, guys. Here, as promised, is some manga for you.

I've uploaded the first volume of both Death Note (24MB) and Rurouni Kenshin (39MB).

Manga:
Death Note: Volume One
Rurouni Kenshin: Volume One

More will follow either tomorrow or Friday.

It's kind of ironic, really. The majority of my anime has come from [livejournal.com profile] don_cristobal, but I know that he doesn't have Death Note even though he was the one who gave me Rurouni Kenshin; the majority of my manga has come from [livejournal.com profile] aya_katsera, who gave me Death Note but doesn't have Rurouni Kenshin yet. It's all just a little trade-off between them, really. I'm merely a vessel.

So huge thanks to both [livejournal.com profile] don_cristobal and [livejournal.com profile] aya_katsera for these. And I hope [livejournal.com profile] lumivalkea will enjoy the Rurouni Kenshin, too; and if she already has it, I have some music to offer up instead. I mooch off her so much, it's only fair; I've been dying to upload some stuff and pay her back.

Music: (Mostly slow, relaxing music this time.)
"Chanson d'Ami" by Zazie
Techno Mix from the Princess Mononoke OST
"Drunkard's Prayer" by Over The Rhine
"Arthur's Farewell" by Enaid
"Gueri de Toi" by Sarah Brightman

All the links will be up and working until no one downloads from them for a whole week. So act fast, people.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Last Order

Rurouni Kenshin
So I finally finished the Rurouni Kenshin manga, and I have to say that I love it immensely. Like any great anime, it has filler episodes that just drive me crazy, but you can't help adoring the overall story. The art style of the manga is incredible, as well as the pacing and suspense in the stories. I can't believe that the Jinchuu Arc was never animated....It was incredible.

Seriously....If you haven't read this manga, get in touch with me. I'll send it to you personally; you need to read it.

FVII: Advent Children
I also ordered myself a copy of Advent Children when I got home from school; it finally came in a couple days ago, and I loved it. Of course, I'd seen the subbed version online, but that pales in comparison to the real deal. If you haven't seen it yet, you need to as soon as possible. It has all the fight scenes that The Matrix wishes that it had.

I liked the Japanese version better, of course, because the voices are perfect and the jokes and such make more sense. But the dub was quite good as well.

If you haven't seen it yet, let me know and we'll have a movie night sometime after the wedding when everything settles down.

xxxHolic
And then there's xxxHolic; true to form, CLAMP has produced a visual orgasm. The manga is literally beautiful. My sister is into fashion and such, so I would call her in from time to time to see what Yuuko's wearing. Gorgeous.

Don't even get me started on Watanuki and Doumeki. Heee!

I read all the way to volume eight, but the version that I have of it won't open on my computer. It's a file that my laptop doesn't understand. But no worries; I found a website that had some of volume eight, so I'll get to see it there.

But I'd still like to send out a huge thank-you to [livejournal.com profile] lumivalkea for uploading so much manga for those of us that can't get a hold of it normally. (And another huge thank-you to Lumi's esteemed Onee-san [livejournal.com profile] aya_katsera for providing the manga in the first place.) I'm going to start reading X/1999 in earnest now, so thanks again for that as well!

And...icons. I've been having way too much fun with that. But my beloved laptop doesn't have internet access when I'm at home, so I won't be able to upload them and share until I can either magically connect to the web or start transferring them to another computer that has a connection. Which would be kind of a pain; but no worries. I'll figure it out.

In the meantime, I don't think you guys are really going to miss my random icon dumps.

Bleach!

I finished watching all the episodes I have of Bleach. It's the kind of anime that has something for everyone. It's extremely serious sometimes, and the fights are incredible, but it also has a kind of random humor that gets me. It's extremely hard (at least for me) to choose a favorite character. Various characters are introduced, but then it slowly shows you more of their past and you realize how much ass they kick.

Renji, for instance. It starts out with him seeming like your typical, "Bwahaha, I'm here to take Rukia away, and you can't stop me!" enemy. More of a plot device than a character. Then you learn about his past with Rukia, and his reaction to her joining the Kuchiki clan, etc. and you just can't help really liking the guy. Basically all of the characters are introduced in that way. You have the complex world of Soul Society, and you're basically just thrown into all of the petty squabbles and alliances and court intrigue without really knowing what's going on. Then you just have to try to figure things out as you go along, which really kept my interest. It's not hard to keep all of the characters straight, though...Each of them are so unique, especially their swords.

I swear, I couldn't have imagined that many different designs for swords. It's just awesome.

But now, I've run out of episodes. So the fandom is just going to have to tide me over until I come back home. I had some free time last night, so I made some icons. I'm rather attached to them, so if you'd like to use them, please comment and credit.

1. 2. 3. 4.

5. 6. 7.

Number seven is too much for LJ to handle, apparently. Oh well...It works everywhere else, so I'm not too bothered.

Edit: More icons, of the Rurouni Kenshin variety.

8. 9.

Yes, I love Photoshop.
