Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)A lot later than this should have been, but finally, art for them all:Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Figured it was time to switch to a new journal...
While it isn't the proper announcement of the Class-up yet, but it is clean artwork from the website. For the Saiyans at least. Still kinda hard to see the other races on the card.
Couple of notes:
Beat still has an off looking face, but not as bad as before. He lacks pupils in the eyes. Guess this inconsistency will continue forever.Note seems to have less eyebrow definition than I originally thought. She doesn't have pupils in this artwork either.Kabra is blocked even worse than before...Tsumuri doesn't show anything new...Nimu...seems to have facial hair? I thought the avatars were supposed to be younger than that. Kinda strange... Hoping it's a smudge.Froze looks kinda cool, but I'm not sure how much I like the black and white armor combined. Maybe just one or the other? Full body would be nice.
Thanks to Nostal/Treevax, we have clean scans of V-Jump. Her
GoodByeNot being heard,GoodBye1 year ago in Personal More Like This
when I never said anything,
For I cut off my tongue
I said so much,
and I got none.
Comments or questions,
A simple hello,
Instead it was a silent scream
I don't care,
Breath someone Else's air
Sing another song,
Don't be here,
We don't care.
I'm not entertainment,
No, this feels like torment,
A bitter sweet plate
An winged lover tasting a devils game
My life is well, but it is not,
For I starve in places
When I am full in some,
Now, I will cut them off,
Like a infected limb,
I am numb,
I have been starved,
Mentally, and physically,
But no soul came to stitch my wound
To carry me to mercy,
So This isn't a goodbye from you,
This is from me,
My death wouldn't make a bird fly
Nor would it make the songs play
And it would not step into your brain,
You would not cry,
Life would be so much as it is now,
I get so far into these word games,
so I suppose I will end it here,
But hear me, I will bleed,
Until I die, and fade from your life.
I will not heal our grasp,
You held the
FAQ time!Since I tend to get asked a lot of the same questions through our videos or at cons, I decided to answer a few of them here. Most of them are related to Grell, Kuroshitsuji, or the Grell Show in some way. So without further ado....here you go!FAQ time!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Where do you get your Grell contacts?
I get all of my contacts from a company caleld Exotic Lenses http://www.exoticlenses.com/. I have never had an issue with any of their products, and believe me, I have tried several other companies out there. But Exotic Lenses products have never irritated my eyes, and they're so comfortable that half the time I forget I'm even wearing contacts. The style I use to always use for Grell are "Louis" (those pale green ones), but I recently switched over to a new style called "Mad Hatter" (as seen in my Ophelia pic).
Where do you get your sharp Grell teeth?
The veneers set that I use is from a site called Dental Distortions http://www.dentaldistortions.com/, and the style is actually called "Grell". They are a bit

Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)Kanzenshuu has the full translation of the new Toriyama interview up. Some fun tidbits in there, some contradictory to previous information too: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/episode-bardock-akira-toriyama-super-qa/Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As you know, Akira Toriyama-sensei, the father of Dragon Ball, oversaw the manga in this volume, and so naturally, he answered the questions of Naho Ooishi-sensei, who is also a super-fan of Dragon Ball!! Don’t miss it!
How was the character of Bardock born? (I heard he was born from the TV special, “A Lonely Final Battle”, but…) Also, what sort of attachment do you have to the character Bardock?
Yes, Bardock certainly was born from the anime. However, I don’t remember the particulars of how it went at that time. As for his design, I think I probably just gave some editorial supervision to what was suggested to me by [people from] the anime side of things. I don’t r

Dragon Ball: New Project (PS4, PS3, 360)Let's switch this over to Kanzenshuu's description of the game:Dragon Ball: New Project (PS4, PS3, 360)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
While little is known about the game yet besides the visuals shown on the page, the magazine does draw attention to a mysterious figure watching the first battle between Goku and Vegeta from the shadows. With red hair, a scouter, and the Capsule Corporation logo on his sleeve, his identity is not made clear. The magazine poses the question to the reader as to who he is and what this means. Two cities of unclear nature are also showcased, with one in a Namek-like environment sporting a temple with a tree in the middle of what looks like a birdcage, and the other a “high-tech city” with which “that Majin” apparently has some sort of connection. Further details are, as always, expected in subsequent issues of the magazine.
Okay, so now that we have an official translation of the material,

Life for the past 6 Years (Long Journal :/)Hi everyone! So...I haven't said too much or been very active for the past 6 years or so...I was active for my first full year on DA but then life kinda happened and I wasn't on very much. So I thought I would say everything that has happened and what is currently going on in my life because I would love feedback and opinions.

The last time I was very active on here I was studying Computer Science at Texas Women's University. I started studying weightloss as I was very unhappy with my life and I had been obese most of my life. I was severely OCD as well...if I didn't have classes I would never have left my home. I was scared of germs and contamination. My mom had to start accompanying me to places to open doors because I was too afraid to touch door knobs (yeah it was THAT bad :/). But as I began losing weight I started having more people approach and talk to me...then I decided to change s
Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)JM3 information is starting to surface for Dragon Ball Heroes. As expected, the Avatars are getting new clothes as part of their second "Class-up" (and transformations for the Saiyans). This upcoming set will be a landmark moment for the franchise, holding the special revelation that is the first official Super Saiyan 3 female design. other than that, the other characters are getting new outfits that I'll need to work in as well, and meaning another transformation for the Raiokutian (Freeza Clan) characters in my project too.Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Final note, there is another silhouette below the new avatar designs. Not exactly sure who this is, but the text claims them to be a boss character. The design looks very similar to Liu Xing Long's Otohime form, but she was already utilized in JM1. So, I'm not exactly sure what is going on. Maybe she's getting a new form? Maybe it's a new character? Have to wait and see.
