Lack of Spiritual Power?: The Melancholy of Aina Kusuda

Who did this to her!

Let me explain.

Recently on April 14th, Aina Kusuda left a series of tweets on Twitter that prompted concern and large shows of support from her fans.

unnamed

“I am not exactly sure why it is, but it makes me sad…”

“I am extremely saddened and disappointed. I thought I would be able to see it through to the very end.”

kussuntweet3

“I am sorry for worrying everybody. I am feeling well. However, I am a bit stunned. I am sorry I cannot go into the details. Thank you for your continued support!!”

Who the heck did this to this princess! As things are now, we don’t know what happened and the tweets as of now have been taken down.

I wish I knew what happened. I’m sad. When Aina-sama’s sad then the rain falls on the worlds of her fans.

That’s all we have now,

Update: I Think I Want to Do Something for Myself and the Blog

I’ve been really thinking of some stuff. Money’s tight…well not super tight at my place. We have money to get me back and forth to school and cash to eat and pay bills. And that’s all I should really ask for right?

I admit that it might be selfish of me to want more. After all my Needs are taken care of. Is it right to have Wants when my Needs are taken care of?

I’d like to think it’s okay. After all over the course of a month I go to school five days a week for at least three hours, write papers for school, write at least 12 reviews per month, side posts on the blog, manage my Twitter, look for a job, write my book, keep up with family and old friends, cook, and do chores. I rarely get to sleep before 11 and I still feel like I haven’t made a dent into the stuff that I want to do.

While my mother and my family taught me that it’s okay to be happy, I always thought that it was important to sacrifice a bit of yourself to be there for others. I always thought that I had a responsibility to others before myself. However I’m starting to wonder if that’s okay. After all, I’m not saying I’m suffering but I do give up a lot of stuff that I want to do to please others.

For example I want a new computer and a new tablet so I can restart my Love Live School Idol Festival posts as well as restart my Fuuka and Fairy Tail Zero reviews. I also want a 3DS so I can play Pokemon and Bravely Default to relax after a long day. However everytime I think of getting these things, I feel like I’m being selfish to others like my mother who need me.

But despite that, I want to do a few small things for myself. So I’ve been thinking of trying to do affliates on the blog again.

I think that the main reason it failed the last time is that I was trying to push people to buy by making specific posts for it. That in my opinion was bad and stupid.

Also I believe that I was going for the wrong product. Not to offend anyone but if you want to pay for a DVD/BD, you would but it’s just easier to download it. Why pay for something when you can get it for free?

So that’s why I signed up with PlayAsia.com again. And this time I’m going to be working with something that’s both cheaper and a bit more effective in pitching.

I’ll be pitching iTunes and Google Play giftcards as well as Nendoroids. I thought about it and realized that it would be easier to buy a $10, $15, or $25 iTunes or Google Play than a $50 DVD. And plus I’m more pandering to the Love Live School Idol Festival players who occasionally buy Love Gems.

As for the Nendoroids I actually got the idea from watching CuriousCloudy’s Fan Hauls on Youtube. Nendoroids are collectable and very cute and a lot of them are less than $50 on PlayAsia. So it’s pretty easy to work with.

So that’s my decision. Some of the posts like the ones for the Fate series, Date A Live, and Love Live will be pitching Nendoroids while the other posts will be pitching iTunes and Google Play cards.

Before I end off the posts, I just want to say that all of this isn’t just a ploy to milk you of your money. The lion’s share of the money that this would make would go to the blog and if there’s anything left, I’d use it for myself or probably give it to SkyCorps for either blog maintainence or whatever he wants to do with it.

To be fair he deserves it. AnimeWithSky is nearly at 90,000 hits and hasn’t even been a year yet. I personally think we’ll hit 100K either a little before the year anniversary or a few weeks after. He’s a great Head Author and Admin.

Also I won’t be posting any affiliate links on AnimeWithSky. Like I’ve said a few times, I respect him too much to do that.

So I think that’s it.

Until another update or something else,

Love Live Movie First Promo Announced!

Yes! It’s finally here and even more important I finally have the time to talk about it.

So the first promo for the Love Live Movie that’s coming out in June is out. It’s not a long one. It’s only about 15 seconds. I’ve watched it about ten times or so and haven’t been able to get any more out of it than I already have.

The only good thing I see is the cute kimonos that the girls are wearing and that Eli’s the center. I guess that we can guess that Eli will either be a major focus of the movie or that the center in the songs that are going to be in the movie are going to switch off a bit. I want to go with the first one. Eli’s one of the more popular members of Muse but the anime never really showed all of it. She had a major focus in the first season but they didn’t really dig any deeper into her character. That’s what I want to happen in this movie.

So of course I can’t leave you without the promo so here!

Nozomi’s A Mascot!

Hey everyone. It’s Deven and I’m coming at you with a bit of Love Live news.

Now as you know Nozomi is a shrine maiden at a local shrine in the anime.

ep02_00085

Now that shrine is called Kanada Myoujin Shrine. Since both seasons of the anime have come out, the shrine has been getting a massive surge of visitors because of Nozomi’s appearance there.

Because of that, the Shrine decided to work with it and made Nozomi the Shrine’s mascot. It’s not the first time that this has happened for a Love Live girl to become a mascot for something.

Earlier last year, Rin Hoshizora was made the face of the Sega x Love Live collaboration.

Love-Lives-Rin-Hoshizora-Now-the-Face-of-Sega

Also and this is big one. At the shrine there is a fair amount of exclusive Love Live and Nozomi goods that can only be bought there.

This is great for Love Live and I wish they’d make more of the Love Live girls mascots for other things. Maybe Honoka a mascot for a Japanese sweet shop or something?

Love Live Yuri Couples

It’s something that resides deep down within the hearts of all fans of Love Live School Idol Project. You can try to deny it as much as you want but you wonder and want for it as much as the rest do.

Love Live Yuri!

Yuri. The world of aesthetics and perversion. The forbidden door opens in front of Shido. It’s all right. It’s only scary at first.

No better said that with words from Date A Live 2.

So as you know there are no guys in Love Live…well there’s Honoka’s dad but you don’t see his entire face.

Lack of guys doesn’t slow down any one from shipping. In fact it encourages them. There are so many ships in Love Live I could hardly name them all. So I’ll start with the ones that are most famous and move down to the least of them along with some three part pairings. I have a feeling I can’t say the other word.

The first one is the easily the most famous one. It’s the one most well known.

Maki x Nico.

Maki x Nico to be straight up with you didn’t have much of a leg to stand on back in the first season of Love Live. However fans got all hot and bothered by Maki’s tsundere antics and interactions with Nico and it grew to a full out pairing.

As a result they got a few little teases in the second season like sharing that baked potato in the 3rd episode and Maki’s all blushing and stuff. So cute.

My personal opinion on it is just really cute but it’s not my favorite. I can see how they fit together but it’s not really favorite. Maki more of snarks at Nico but then again she does show her Dere side around her.

They are both members of BiBi and sing the duet Zurui Yo Magnetic Today. The song is epic of a cute tsundere love affair.

 

Next one is my personal favorite! It’s like pure perfect Yuri. It’s so beautiful as if the goddess of Yuri made it herself!

Eli x Nozomi

Eli x Nozomi has a lot of love there, mostly because they’ve been best friends since their first year I think.

Eli is, in my opinion, the type of person that hides her emotions in favor in order to be the more efficient. You can see this best during the first season before Eli and Nozomi join Muse. Her actions as student council president are what she feels she needs to do but not what she wants to do. Nozomi is her comforter during most of this and the one that forces her to admit her real feelings about herself about she feels about Muse.

It’s not Maki x Nico where it’s more of cute love where the twosome snark at each other. Eli x Nozomi is more of a mature love. Eli can’t hide anything from Nozomi because Nozomi knows her so well. Eli is the only one that knows how lonely Nozomi used to be before Muse.

Unfortunately Eli is a member of BiBi while Nozomi is a member of Lily White. However they do have a duet called Hanazono no Glass or Garden of Glass. Now if that song isn’t filled with sexual tension I don’t know what is.

Next one up is another favorite of mine.

Hanayo x Rin

Another couple that’s more my style. Similar to Eli x Nozomi, Hanayo x Rin is built on a long history together and mutual support.

Rin is very much Hanayo’s courage and spurs Hanayo to do things that she wants to do but are too shy to try like join Muse.

At the same time, Hanayo supports Rin by seeing the beauty in her even when she can’t see in herself.

Once again unfortunately Hanayo is a member of the Primtemps while Rin is a member of Lily White. Also even more unfortunately they don’t have a duet but they do have two three three part harmony called After School Navigators and Listen to my Heart. They do have a fair amount of love tones but it’s not really a yuri type of love.

Now those are the ones that I have the most yuri undertones. The rest are good and cute but don’t have many cute moments for them.

Nozomi x Nico

It’s more of a funny pairing than anything. Half the Nozomi x Nico pairings pictures I’ve seen are more jokes comparing Nico’s flatness to Nozomi’s massive and well loved …assets.

They have a duet called Otome Shiki Ren’ai Juku and it’s definitely a Yuri laced song with a lot of cute jokes between the two.

Honoka x Rin

Muse’s two top energy girls!

…but they don’t have much with them other than the fact they are a lot alike in personality.

They have a duet called Mermaid festa vol. 2 Passionate. It’s a very cute love song with a lot of energy in it.

Eli x Umi

Muse’s two geniuses…is that how you spell it?

Anyway…they don’t have much with them other than similar personalities. Although Umi’s more serious than Eli and doesn’t get as many emotional moments as she does.

They have a duet called Storm in Lover. Like pretty much every other song, it does have a lot of yuri undertones.

Kotori x Hanayo

Muse’s two cutest members!

There’s not much here either.

They have a duet called Kokuhaku Biyori, desu which has a good love feel to it.

There’s a lot more couples but like Nozomi x Rin or Nozomi x Honoka but I have so much to do and not a lot of time on the computer do it. So I’ll just give the remaining couples a little pic spam.

And with that I think that I’ve given you enough Yuri for a while.

Until later and with more NozoEli,

Love Live School Idol Festival Before the Event #5

Hey everyone. It’s Deven Luca and I’m coming at you with another Love Live School Idol Festival post.

Okay so this event is Kokoro Yurechau yo or the My Wavering Heart in English.

So it’s a Super Rare Umi as well as a Christmas Nico! I have to get that Umi! She’s one of my favorites! Yeah…Nico’s just a speed bump on the way to Umi. I guess she’ll also be a good addition to my Smile Team.

So here we go!

Stats

Rank:60
Until Next Rank:650
Love Gems: 13
Gold: 658, 450

Strategy

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix right? I’m going to stick to what I’ve got. I’m using the alarm on my phone to wake me up on time to play as well as making sure to not miss any times.

Now this is a Pure event and my Pure team is so much stronger plus the fact that some time today I’ll be getting the Pure Kotori Event card that everyone gets, my Pure team is going to be a lot stronger!

Goal

My goal is of course to get that Umi Card! No matter what! Why even though I have a good Pure team with two SR cards and  a soon to be UR card? Because it’s a Umi-dah and plus it lets me trade out one of my rares for a SR which always good.

Break Even

I’ve got a lot of Love Gems and I’m not really planning on using any of them really. Probably like two or three at max if I miss one of my times.

So that’s my plan and my Break Even

Wish Me Luck! I’m going in!

Until After the Event,
