Doujinshi scan: Hayate x Blade



Juuichi-nin Iru, a Hayate x Blade doujinshi by UKOZ (Nishi Uko and Houjou Koz). Worksafe. Japanese.
Please spread it around!

I've also uploaded the full-size, uncleaned scans in case anybody needs them.

I am still taking scan requests. As always, please make the requests in the first post so they'll all be together.

I'm still working on the following request (I've scanned the book but haven't cleaned the scans yet):
Hayate x Blade Double Dragon Kyuushiro

If anyone is interested in helping me clean scans, leave a comment and let me know! That's the most time-consuming part of scanning for me.

Free Stuff

I'm moving and have a bunch of stuff to give away. I figured I'd offer it to my friends first! Everything here and at this link is free (ignore the prices on the other post).
If you live in the US and just want books, movies, etc., I can probably cover the shipping myself since media mail is cheap (I can also do multiple packages if you want some stuff that can be shipped media mail and some that can't). For anything else, I can probably cover part of the shipping cost but not all. If you're outside North America, anything heavy is probably not going to be worth the cost of shipping from me to you unless you're dying to have it.
Comments are screened so you can put your shipping address in without anyone else seeing it. I'll unscreen comments that don't have an address in them.

Influential Characters Meme

Copied from Facebook (though I've seen it around LJ too).

Approximately ten fictional characters (television, films, plays, books) who've influenced me and will always stick with me.

Nausicaa from Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind
Every heroine from Tamora Pierce's Tortall books, especially Daine
Delenn from Babylon 5
Oscar François de Jarjayes from The Rose of Versailles
Kaoru Orihara from Onii-sama e (aka Brother, Dear Brother)
MacKenzie Allen from Commander in Chief
Captain Janeway and Captain Picard from Star Trek
Lois and Clark from Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman
Pike Dexter from Big Eden
Nikki Wade from Bad Girls (the British TV series)

I'm sure I'm forgetting others.


I'm not tagging anyone--do it if you feel like it.

Legit stream of Marimite season 1

Nozomi/TRSI are streaming Marimite season 1 at http://www.youtube.com/nozomient
It's subtitled (with the subtitle track that includes honorifics), and it looks like they'll be putting up one episode per week (with the first two staying up indefinitely and subsequent episodes staying up for a limited time?).

If you live in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand, now's your chance to catch a legit stream of the show! (The Anime Network also has a listing for Marimite but doesn't appear to have any episodes available for streaming.)

Food for thought

Why is it that I can hear "Big Sis" used on Greek and not bat an eyelid, but the thought of using it for Marimite makes me cringe? They're the exact same sort of mentorship system, so it's as valid an English equivalent as it would be if they were actual sisters. Yes, it's casual, but it can also be affectionate, and I could see a formal speaker using it if it were a standardized part of the system. Maybe it's that I never actually heard it used that way until Greek (I've never been in a sorority and aren't close to anyone who is), which was only just recently, long after I first saw and read Marimite. Or maybe it just doesn't fit with the atmosphere at Lillian. Thoughts?

A bit of news about Yuri Hime

Issue 21 came out this month; issue 22 will be out in November. From that point on, it will publish in odd-numbered months. It makes sense that they would do it this way, though the news about November surprised me at first.

Because the next issue isn't for 4 months, the final chapter of Mononoke Girls' Academy will be in Mononoke Girls' Academy volume 2, due out next month. (The penultimate chapter is in the issue of Yuri Hime that just came out.)

(News source is Nangoku Banana's blog; Yuri na Hibi also mentions the November thing.)
