Woo, more manga.

The first volume of both X/1999(37MB) and xxxHolic(18MB).

And no one is downloading my music; that's sad. But I'm stubborn, so here's some more anyway.

Expect more this weekend.

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.

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 [ 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 [ 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.

If you like any of these, feel free to take them. Just comment and credit.

Basically, I was just playing around with motion blur and gradients and such when I made these. For instance...
