Today was our first day of stopping work before dinner and not doing anything resembling work or errands afterward. It was pretty nice, except that my tummy is unhappy with me, so it wasn't quite as relaxing as I'd hoped.
Anyway, even "working" as long as we did, it was light work. We finished our first draft of Fire Force, checked some timing on an anime episode, and did our final read-through of Sailor Moon volume four. And now it is officially turned in! Wooooohoooooo!!! And after the final read-through, I think the dialogue all sounds pretty decent. There's some that might be a little over-the-top, but it's all from characters that we can justify it for.
We also wrote some reviews! And man, we spent a long time writing the Sailor Moon one. We have fun writing those, so hopefully they'll be fun to read in the future! Because they're long. They're also kind of rambly.
And finally we watched more of the New Legends of Monkey. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about it. The scenery and the costumes make give it a really nice feel, so if there was a theme park based on it, it would be a nice place to hang out, but the best characters are Sandy and Pigsy, and I feel like they're not in it very much. It's kind of like if you're a fan of any Sailor Guardian other than Sailor Moon, you really better watch the anime, because they don't spend a lot of time focusing on them. (As you can see, Sailor Moon is our current point of reference for almost everything.)
Oh yeah, there was something else important that happened today. We ordered our Land of the Lustrous costumes. I felt pretty good about it at the time, but as soon as the order went through, it was like, "Oh no, are they going to get here in time!?" and, "I bet this seller doesn't have the rights to these characters! Would the Kodansha people be offended if they saw us in these costumes!?" We would have made them ourselves if there was any hope of having that kind of time. ...Except for the wigs. We would absolutely have bought the wigs no matter what.
At any rate, I think the Kodansha USA people will probably not mind.
Today I'm thankful for finishing work early today (now we play the game of which is worse: working longer now, or the crush that will come from putting it off?), the delicious ice cream we have to look forward to, the dark chocolate peanut butter turning out to be just as good as our friend said it is, finally being finished with Sailor Moon volume four, and getting to cosplay new characters.
