anime - amatsuki - smile - summer

7 days and counting...

[001] I'm experiencing mixed feelings now that we're half way through September. For one thing, I'm ecstatic that SPN has started. On the other hand, I miss the summer hollidays dreadfully ;__; Though now there's only a week left for my birthday :)

[002] The day has come where I want more than the max 100 & loyalty slots for icons. Luckily, we'll be able to get that by November

[003] The easiest way to download anime? Have a premium megaupload account and sign up at galanime.com (for free). They list almost every single title, with links for all the episodes. I even added their search to my browser search engines so I can download episodes asap. And if something is missing, there's always anime_downloads and tokyotosho.

[004] After finishing One Piece, I watched 1) Gintama (fun, but no real plot for first 40 or 50 eps), 2) Personal Trinity Soul (...where my fave people kinda die?) and 3) Darker Than Black (which is very cool except the ending felt...lacking). Am trying Zegapain next based on carameltrap's rec ^_^

[005] Am so glad I save my old icons into a folder before I delete them - over time several of the comms my userpics were from have been deleted - frakking_icons, springfly and the one I most miss, pixation (which had such FANTASTIC stuff D:) I would do anything to be able to visit that comm again - its so weird how much I miss the icon posts :(

[006] SPN icon tutorial I wanna try out :)
I can't wait *_* And it seems like they'll be doing some improvements next month too - it feels like a while since the lj community was actually *happy* with lj updates/news >_>
More userpic slots? Awesome. I'm taking note on the lj permanent account sale.

My rec was terrible! I didn't even put up pictures or state what's it actually about. @_@
I'm happy to know that you picked up Persona Trinity Soul. Not many people watched this or fully appreciate it due to it being very dialogue heavy.
I heard that Darker Than Black might get a S2 so cross your fingers for it.
Yup, more userpics = heaven :) I'm still holding out that Dreamwidth might be a future alternative to LJ so no permanent account on the horizon yet for me.

I had seen one or two episodes previously so your post had me run over to galanime and download it all XD

Had no probs with heavy dialogue - I like my anime meaty actually. The only thing is that I warmm up faster to plots/storylines which aren't so mysterious (a person dies but we see them later, the girl in red, the feathers etc)...and so I still have the last 5 eps to watch >_>

DTB second season would be fab! It really feels like its just beginning :)
More icons *___* (In my mind I know how that sounds but my heart does not care it just more pretty icon spaces)
Yay for Zegapain! I thought I was the only person who watched it. I loved Zegapain. I enjoyed Darker than Black, too. I'm looking forward to the second series, if they really do make it. ^____^
I save every single icon that I like into a folder sorted by artist name. This way if there is something that I liked that I never got a chance to use, or if I want to use it again I will have it.
3: Instead of buying a premium account or wasting your rewards points, download the toolbar (and I recommend the manager) and take full advantage of Happy Hour Premium! Just copy the links you want to download throughout the day, log in to Megaupload and click the happy hour link around 9PM. Then open up the manager, log in to that, and copy those links.

As for download sites, I usually go to sites like TVFreeLoad for downloading anime. Or I use torrents and try to download a complete season. I'm also a Google addict so I just search '"Series" megaupload.' I have a limited amount of hard drive space, so I usually just stream subs. :|
Crap, I meant to add stuff about the icon comms/journals you mentioned too. :F

Anyway, have you tried using Archive.org to look for some of them? I searched for pixation on there and got this, which has a few icons. A trick with Archive.org is that it changes the image links to something like this, which sometimes keeps them from showing. But if you delete the web.archive.org mess before the photobucket url, you can get to the icon! :O Just thought you might be interested!
I completed forgot about Archive and the WayBackMacine et all! Thanks! It might be the only way to get icons now ;_;
I have a premium MU account for another year or so. And I use it for everything - manga, yaoi, anime, far eastern dramas etc. Sometimes I'll google "series" site:megaupload.com and it'll list any files of the title on MU :) I've known about the toolbar but I HATE the thought of waiting till 9pm (instant gratification kind of gal)

Thanks for pointing out TVFreeLoad! I find torrents too slow though so...MU usually works :) And then there's sharing the account with 2 or 3 peeps from the same country so you pay just $12 for 2 yrs worth of unlimited, fast downloads :)
