I was doing some organizing to prepare for Unreal Estate and figured I’d post some preview material for y’all to enjoy. I recently re-posted the episode 01 teaser, and today I’ve uploaded spoiler-free cast bios. Read up and get familiar with Meiko, Eiko, Kisei, Lorelei, and Mallory. Whee!
Also, you remember my fanboyish fun stint in Slayers Starboard where Lina was using submission holds in a fight? Yesterday I was playing Love Hina Advance (much easier to handle when you can save the emulator’s memory state at any time) and unlocked this picture of l’il 9 year old Sarah slapping the Crippler Crossface on Keitarou. Poor Keitarou-kun! (Can anybody translate his pained screaming in the caption at the bottom of the picture? Or is it just ‘Aaa!’?)
And before you ask, yes, Mallory was inspired by him. :) UE’s entire premise is sort of a Love Hina meets Outlaw Star genre thing. Derivative, but no more than a lot of anime is and it’s going to be loads of fun. ^_^
Now the bad news. Last night I stayed up 30min later to watch Cowboy Bebop, and I ended up not getting to sleep until 2:30 am. Woke up at 7:30 am with hideous acid reflux. I take a Pepcid every night to combat it, but since I ate a lot of junk food this weekend and didn’t get much sleep, blaargh. I’m tired, dehydrated and feeling lousy… but I don’t want to take time off work since I’ve done too much of that lately. Gotta be a team player, I don’t want to look bad. x.x
I might forgo having the guys over for a big party tonight and just watch rasslin’ from a spot on the couch lying down and moaning pathetically.
But enough about that. Enjoy your day and enjoy the links. I might start UE early (IE, a week from now) and simply take my time writing it rather than slamming it out for hours a day and/or guilting about it. Fortunately, since UE is largely comedy scifi shoujo hijinks, it won’t feel like as much of a chore to write.
