Black Cat animanga lj comm?  
Ahaha accidentally posting a premature version of my icon post. Ignore. -_-;;;

So. Does anyone on my flist know of a Black Cat animanga (emphasis on the manga part, haha) community? I've found a couple, but they're all semi-dead/very obscure/tiny, and...yeah. :\ I mean, I guess I could join them and post in them anyway, but hm.

And if not, anyone up for creating a Black Cat community with me? I'd completely be able to make and code a layout and do most of the modwork, but it'd be nice to run it with a few people or at least have a few members from the start. I guess it'd be better to wait re: making one until Yabuki Kentaro ever announces his sequel to garner attention for it, but, you know me, I like to jump the gun and all that.

Yay :D :D I'm actually all still "hrrrrrm is it even a good idea to make a new comm" since there -are- Black Cat comms out there...sort of...yeah. Oh well, let's do it :D I figure a straightforward name like "black_cat_anime/manga" would be better, but what do you think?

(You should make some Black Cat icons yourself. *nudge nudge* I mean, I guess I'll have a few in the upcoming icon post, but I'm sort of eh re: the quality so far, plus I'm trying to quickly get said post up so there won't be many. :\ )

Oh - I don't know how I forgot to comment on your post, but I loved your coloring of that Hei/Yin pic. You can definitely see the progression of your coloring from some of your earlier manga panels to that image, it's awesome :]

Find some some pretty HQ panels and I shall very gleefully colour them ♥~

Even something like "blackcatfans" which is open, and that by name doesn't really exclude or focus on either the anime or manga, yet is still very straightforward?

Heh, I'll be sure to send you some when I get the chance, then. Or, do you have the manga? I have both the scanlations and raws (which are higher res) of all 20 vols, if you'd rather I link you so you can sift through them yourself.

Aha, knew I was forgetting one of those name variations. I was all, "gnargh, blackcatanimanga is clunky..." 8D; I can make a layout relatively soon (hopefully one that can fit Train, Sven, Eve, and Rinslet) and we could then go from there with rules/whatever else we need etc?

I had the manga and I ended up selling it at AnimeNorth because I needed money. T_T So I would love to get hold of both the scanlations for reading and the raws for colouring!

Sounds good, I wonder if there's a nice panel with all of them in it that's suitable for layouts?

Yeah!

I, uh...don't think I read the manga. And probably won't, at this rate.

Commenting to say: kickass layout. Nicely done.

...Well, you suck. ): Why not? Do I want to know? Probably not, huh...

And I've been changing the colors for the past goddamn 40 mins and it's just. not. working. I really apologize to everyone whose eyes are going insane from the intense black-to-white flips. ;;;;;;;;;;;

At least I've learned that white text on dark bg is too much for my eyes. Sigh.
Raerae00 on August 18th, 2010 03:43 pm (UTC)
Laziness. :D ...Unless...How awesome would you say Sephiria Arks is, on a scale of 1 to 10?

Hahahaha. Have fun with that. "Can you paint with all the colors of the wind...?" ...'Kay, I dunno, my brain sings to me sometimes.

Really? S'what I do with my consoles. Well, since things are usually color-coded, it's not white. More like gray and green and other colors. On black.

................................I can't believe you. *headdesk* Of all chars, you ask about Sephiria? She's amazing, but she's a secondary-tertiary character.

...Thanks a lot. Half my problems would go away if lj gave me more damn options for what I can change colors for, instead of bunching together several elements that'll lead to inherent color clash. Goddamnit, off to find overrides, I suppose...one day. *gnash gnash*

That's just...that's just bad. White on dark gray is as far as I can go, but that's not going to work with this layout. And green...only programmers. Thank god most of you aren't graphics people. Makes me so glad lj has a "use my style" option to allow you to override those painful combinations.
Raerae00 on August 18th, 2010 03:50 pm (UTC)
*laughs outright* Now this is how to start the morning. One cup of coffee, one exasperated headdesk from DS. Check, check.
I mean, you've talked about Train and how Eve's just great, and I don't really care about the last guy (Sven?) and that one girl (she was obnoxious in the anime) though I'm sure I'd form more concrete opinions if I read the manga.
If.
Which is why I ask, how'd they treat Sephiria's characterization?

*snickers* CSS? Actually, I could see you as a webpage designer...somehow.

:D But green on black is awesome. So's red on black...
And hey, my LJ looks pretty good, and I spared you guys the console-window effect. Give me some credit here.

Ahaha, you should give it a reread. I'm rereading it for the umpteenth time right now, but in Japanese to practice. :D And whoa, I went to the comm profile page earlier and didn't notice you on the list. :O I, hm. Guess I should post there? I just don't like joining a zillion comms, and I really do have a zillion comms on my flist/membership list etc...hm hm hm.

I'm really tempted to create that new comm now. You should join when we do. :D

Never used onemanga; I read too fast for online viewers. I download my manga instead via mangatraders.com, and they don't seem to be going down any time soon. And yeah, haha. It'll give me a way to subtly advertise the new comm as well...

:D
Raerae00 on August 20th, 2010 03:44 pm (UTC)
I start the download, open the manga viewer, and usually finish reading the chapter by the time it's done downloading. 8D
