WHAT? Orichalcum is done?

After months and months of work, many hours of sleep lost, and too much time spent doing menial stupid tasks, Orichalcum is finally at the printer, and only a month later than planned! Nat and I sent it in yesterday afternoon. There is one little slip-up, but I won't say what it is. If you get a copy, you'll probably be able to find it. I'll post more about availability of the book later.

The last week or so has been pretty insane. There's just a lot of stuff going on. Most of it was Orichalcum-related, so that's behind me. I have a midterm Tuesday and the next chapter of my senior project due Tuesday, but I don't know if I want to work for them. I'm so ready to take an okay grade in the class I have the midterm in and enjoy the remainder of my last quarter. The senior project chapter should be pretty easy, and it's only the first draft, so I'm not worried about it. I think I just want a break from senior project/school-related work right now.

So, so, so, I've been watching Monster during my meal breaks. I've been reading the manga as Viz releases it (it's SO hard not to read ahead online!), but I had only seen the first episode of the anime. That needed to be fixed. Unfortunately, I'm not a very patient person, so I just couldn't sit through the first big chunk of the series. No, I needed to skip ahead to episode 40, where Grimmer comes in. Oh man, Grimmer. Ye gods do I love him. He's so tragic, and he often brings me to tears or close to tears, but I think that makes him a really interesting, awesome character. So many tears have been shed for him this week! But, somehow watching him deal with his... issues, and admitting/seeking assistance for said issues really makes me feel good inside.

Dammit Grimmer, you give my love for Geischt a run for it's money. Man, Urasawa's works make me get so attracted to characters so outside my usual type. I love it.

Holy crap, the same guy that did the music for Keaton did the music for Monster. No wonder it's so amazing. ♥

Also, it has been determined that Tenma and Keaton are so totally cousins. True Fact.
