Easter was not Pagan.
Easter is a Christian Holiday.
Now go eat a peep and stop putting down this religion.

Hate to break it to you but easter and Christmas were both originated as pagan holidays… in attempts to make it the forced transition into…

This is all informative, but Easter is NOT the Spring Equinox. That was March 20th.  Easter is always held the first Sunday after the first full moon of Spring.  It’s date has more to do with Christians not wanting to have to rely on Jewish Rabbis to determine when to hold their feasts because according to the Bible Jesus rose the first Sunday after Passover, then taking over a pre-existing pagan holiday.  One of the few holidays they didn’t do that with.

The traditions of eggs and bunnies, however, are hold overs from ancient pagan traditions.

Ugh…you know the longer that…time of the month takes to happen the worse it is when it arrives.  It’s been about six weeks now and I am dying I swear.  It’s the only time I can drink soda without going into anxiety attacks though so bonus.

Good thing the roommate is gone for the weekend, the only reason I am even marginally comfortable is because I’ve stolen his comfy recliner so my feet are up and I’m all cushioned.  So now I’m just going to continue translating Saintia Sho.  And possibly some of the Lost Canvas Gaiden since the one I want isn’t translated yet. 

it kinda sucks that in some places like the US Saint Seiya is like an obscure anime reference

This is an intimately sad feeling.  The series is so great.  On a plus, as terrible as I think Omega is, it’s given the series more exposure here since it was streamed on crunchy roll

Forgive the Google Translate but THAT’S THE OFFICIAL SAILOR MOON TWITTER AND THE PRODUCTER ATSUTOSHI UMEZAWA CONFIRMING THAT

THE ON APRIL 27

WE WILL GET THE VOICE CAST OF THE ANIME

AND OFFICIAL ART FOR ALL THE LEAD CHARACTERS

Awwwww shiiiit.  So exciting!

So starved to read Saintia Sho I’m translating it from Spanish to English.

(Translating from Spanish is easier than Japanese, what with the being able to actually make the letters for Spanish on my computer and all.)

This had better be worth it.  But it helps pass this incredibly slow day until I have to head to work.

I am never going to understand this need to bash one company making movies of stuff we like for this other company producing movies we like.  Does no one remember the days when we were lucky to get maybe one movie in three years and it was that horrible Shazam?  I do.  Does no one remember the Marvel moving leading up to Iron Man?  I do.

Lemme tell you, neither one of the two is a field of roses, have a sit down with me on any movie and I’ll be able to tell you everything wrong with them both to the point you’ll either dislike the movie or me.  Also, being blind to the problems of one studio while over emphasizing the problems of the other?  Hilarious, especially when the leading ladies are concerned.

Okay no lie, this is really relevant for me tonight.

Got five weeks to make two armor sets.  Realizing I should probably get started.  Execept, I’m not quite sure how to do it.  Hmmmm, guess I’ll be doing some testing tonight.  Need to not be so lazy.

So I finally got my copy of Saint Seiya:Sanctuary from Amazon, released by Flatiron and Cinedigm. The box set in itself it nice like the DVDs for the movies released earlier. As for the quality…eh. These are not the same DVDs released by ADV, picture quality is a little raw and not as crisp as the ADV ones. My biggest gripe is the subtitles…their are spelling mistakes, several pauses, and they cover a lot of the screen. This really upsets me cause I was really looking forward to watching the last few episodes of Sanctuary in somewhat decent subtitles and not shitty Hong Kong “Engrish” ones, which is exactly what this set reminds me of. I haven’t gone through all of it yet but when I do I’ll update the rest of this.

So there’s not an English audio of it.  Goddamnit.  Guess I’ll be passing on buying it.  Maybe if I can get my hands on some raws I’ll do the subbing myself one day.

let’s try that again

Wasn’t she already queen though? I don’t remember Atlantis Queen being crowned in the movie….

She was crowned at the end.

And it was awesome.

We don’t see the ACTUAL coronation though. And TECHNICALLY Kida thogh amazing isn’t an OFFICAL princess. So that could be WHY it doesn’t count.

True.

One minute she is princess and then she’s like “I’m the Queen and this skinny dude here?  Yeah, this is mine now.”

I could never figure out what makes the difference between “Official Disney Princess” and princess who happens to be in a Disney film.  Cause Mulan is not a princess.  At all.  Belle and Tiana only became princesses on marriage.  And yet… all three are “Official Disney Princesses.”

It must be like women’s clothing sizes.  Some insane calculus formula that they do.

Popularity.  Mulan was insanely popular while Pocahontas (As a Chieftan’s daughter she was closer to a princess in the traditional sense than Mulan) and Kida were not.  Tiana and Belle weren’t princesses to begin with but their whole stories had them become princesses.   Though Pocahontas is randomly included in some of the Disney Princess merch at the Disney stores.  She even got a make over with the rest of them.

But really, it all boils down to how popular a character is.

As far as Kida not counting, it says “in a film”, meaning we see it during the movie, not alluded to happening afterwards or off screen.  Technically all the Princesses would become queen one day, but Elsa is the only one we see do it over the course of the story.
