Or, Storm Prince. This is one of Belphegor's character songs, from Hitman Reborn. It's sung by the voice actor. The voice actors for this show were amazing. And, they can all sing pretty well in character. Each character had their own vocal quirk and/or laugh. I haven't heard too many shows be into it that much. Bel's laugh is 'ushishishi', Mukuro's is 'kufufu', Squalo yells whenever he enters a room saying something similar to 'Voooi!'; just as examples. Bel is apart of Varia, the Vongola's elite independent assassination squad. He's a genius prince from an unknown country, and is the youngest member. (I think when Fran joins them in the future, he becomes the second youngest.) He uses storm attributes. His nickname is Prince the Ripper. He presumably killed his twin brother (he later finds out his brother survived, but is soon killed off by Xanxus, Varia's boss), along with his entire family, when he was 8 years old. He joined Varia right after, because he was bored. He becomes euphoric whenever he sees his own blood, reminding him of the time he stabbed his brother. Pretty twisted character. But, that also makes him interesting.
I'm feeling a lot better than I was.I still have a stuffy nose that I can't seem to clear, sometimes it still gets very runny, occasionally have coughing fits, stomach is a bit better, things taste much better, etc. So, there's light at the end of the tunnel...Just wish it would leave me quicker. I read that some people take about 2 weeks to fully recover from a cold. That's a long time.Longer than I thought. I seem to be recovering much quicker than what's normal or 'average'. Yay!
Even though I'm still at the tail end of coming out of this, I tried to start up my sit-ups again this morning. I'm going back down to 60 twice a day, to go easy on myself. Managed to do it!Hopefully, I can do it tonight. I hate not doing all my exercise stuff, so I'm itching to get back to it all.
It snowed early this morning. We don't get snow that often, but sometimes it's enough to be hazardous. This storm seemed to be over pretty quickly, and most of it is gone now. We might have gotten 1-2 inches at most.
On Wednesday, I started watching the 2nd season of Toshi Densetsu no Onna or Urban Legends Woman. I didn't think they'd make a second season, and kind of took it off my radar. When I was looking not too long ago for new ones to add to my 'to watch' list, I saw that they did. I really like this series, so I'm happy I can continue it. Still has the same quirky characters. I almost forgot about them, even though it had only been a little over a year. This one was about an urban legend near the base of Mt. Fuji. Apparently, there's a legend about a creature similar to Nessie, called Mossy at a lake nearby. There's also one about a hidden village where people who couldn't bring themselves to commit suicide in the forest made their own place. They felt like society failed them, and made their own village in spite of that. This legend might actually be true, according to what happened to Otonashi and Katsura when they were lost in the forest. The 'villagers' may have helped direct them to the crime scene and helped them get out, by leaving large stones as a trail. The Mossy one is most likely not real. But, she still has hope that it is. She apparently worked in America after the first season ended. She became very popular over there, and then decided to go back to Japan. It started with her coming back. She's still treated somewhat like a celebrity. They made a special unit for her called UIU or Unscientific incident Investigation Unit. There's a new techie now, too. She seems interesting. Katsura has a new boss in the forensics department. She seems to want to be exactly like Otonashi, but isn't very good at pulling it off.
Wrote more of the 4th short story to my nightmare anthology. It's becoming longer than I expected. But, that's ok. It still won't be very long. I've actually added some stuff that happened, or based on what happened to me, in real life. So, there's some truth to this one...Makes it more scary and believable, I guess? Still haven't been playing my clarinet. Again, hard to do if you can't breathe too well.
I'm making my first pot roast in the slow cooker or crock pot for dinner. (Thought it'd be nice for Shabbat dinner.) It kind of came in a little kit. The package had a smaller package for the meat, a bag full of vegetables (potatoes, carrots, a giant half of an onion, and celery), and a separate spice pack. They had instructions on the back. Basically, throw it all in with a little water. I'm doing it on the high setting for 6 hours. It smells so good already!I looked at it recently, and it seemed to be slowly falling apart and making its own sauce or juices. This looks like it'll turn out awesome!
I'm also trying to get back into drawing. Managed to get back to my 'project' for drawing all my characters next to each other. Have most of the main character, Shadow, outlined pretty well. Plus, Junko's arm over him. My previous drawing of Max is really helping with anatomy. He's a skeleton demon, so it's kind of like he's the bare-bones base for it.I also started another meme. I wanted something simple so I'm not bombarded by the other project, and give up from being too frustrated. This one is an 'exaggerated' expression meme. It showcases a wide range of expressions. Things like not just happy, but up to ecstatic. Or, tipsy to drunk. Another is mildly annoyed to royally pissed off. Sounds like it's great practice. I'm using Junko for this one. I haven't used too many of my female original characters for these. Got to show some love to them too.Plus, I hated the old design for her. I did the first one where it's the light end of happy. I like her new design, and I came up with it rather quickly.
I studied 2 kanji for today: 湯 and 登. The first one is most often pronounced as ゆ (yu). It means: hot water; hot bath, hot spring; molten iron. It tends to be pronounced occasionally as とう (tou) in compounds. 銭湯 or せんとう (sentou): bath-house, public bath. For the other one, when pronounced as 登る or のぼ.る (nobo.ru): to ascend, go up, climb; to go to (the capital); to advance (in price); to swim up (a river), sail up; to come up (on the agenda). As 登り or のぼ.り (nobo.ri): ascent, climbing, ascending (path), climb; northward (towards Tokyo). In compounds it might be pronounced as とう (tou) or と (to).
