I got my Tsumugi wig in the mail today and it is safe to say that I don't make a good blonde. Oh well, can't back down now seeing as I've already bought a good chunk of materials for the cosplay already. I guess I'll have to figure out how to put makeup to look half decent... The wig itself is nice if I actually put my hair properly inside the wig but I can't for the life of me find my wig cap so I just put the wig on without one. You can see my black hair creep eerily in the back but pretend you don't see that. It's a bit lighter than what I wanted but ahh life goes on.

As for progress, I've found two things for her hair accessories. One was a plastic coconut drink container which I'll use for her hat; it will get covered with fabric but for now it's just painted white. The other thing I made is her green star that adorns her head. And for good measure, I included a reference shot with MS Painted circles.

And on a completely random note, I got two spiffy art books from Kinokuniya recently. Noizi Ito's Haruhi art book and the Kamina and Simon combo one by Atsushi Nishigori (TTGL's character designer). The Haruhi one is stuff I can easily find online but it's a hardcover art book and is pretty to stare at. The Kamina/Simon one has lovely art that is entirely new to the book and it includes mini prints of some pieces you can put wherever.

If you can recall that one news article with Kamina on a segway, I have proof of where it is from. In the Gurren Lagann: The Movie's Official Fanbook, there's a bunch of doujinshi stuff in the back and one of them has Kamina on the segway. Here's pictures:

And on another random note, I redid my closet doors with more Gurren Lagann stuff. I still haven't finished redoing it but here's my wall of stuff for now:

And I think that's all for now. Until next time~

So, I don't really have an excuse for not blogging lately besides being lazy. Well besides Anime-Expo being crazy. Finally met Gia and Deb (of which was great. I have a few things lined up (this will help me organize my next few posts), feel free to let me know what you think:

  • Review: Romeo x Juliet: Romeo Collection
  • Review: Gurren Lagaan Movie (sub)
  • Review: Evangelion 1.0 (dub)
  • State of the Industry (compare and contrast from last years AX panic panel, to where we are today)
  • Overall review of AX (spoiler: It was great, but not close to how great last years was)

Like I said though, if there's something you'd like to hear from Anime-Expo, let me know and I'll gladly write up something on it. I also have a couple video clips that I did for another site (Orange Lounge Radio) that I will mirror here once they are up.

In her youth, Aki caused accidents while dueling, often resulting in people getting hurt or injured. Aki later attended a Duel Academy as a young teenager, where she inadvertently caused more accidents due to the instability of her special powers. Because of these incidents, she became separated from most people and kept herself away from them. Thus taking on the persona of the "Black Rose Witch". Aki is later found by Divine, a mysterious looking man who has a profound interest to Aki and her powers.

Her first appearance was when Leo and Dexter decide to challenge the Black Rose Witch to a duel. Right then Aki the "Black Rose Witch" appeared and that's when Aki first sees Yusei Fudo and his Dragon's Birthmark. She sees Yusei as a challenge since she knows he possesses a mark like hers as well.

Aki is a participant of the Fortune Cup and faces Jill deLauncebeaux as her first opponent. She wins the Duel with her signature card "Black Rose Dragon" and is then exposed as the feared "Black Rose Witch". Which was Jeager and Rex Godwin's intention. They also wanted Jill to expose her as a Signer, however even though she used her powers in the Duel, Akutsu's D-Sensor didn't receive a reading.

Aki's next opponent in the Fortune Cup for the second round is the Duel Profiler, Kodo Kinomiya, a mysterious man who attempts to confuse and manipulate her with tragic insights from her dark past. After being pushed to her psychological limits by Kodo, Aki loses control as her mark is revealed which makes her more unstable than usual. Aki is victorious and moves on to the final round where she faces Yusei Fudo.

After her first attack against Yusei becomes reality, he angrily exclaims that she enjoys inflicting pain on others. With a slightly insane smile, Aki replies that she is the "Black Rose Witch," a fearful lady who finds pleasure in other's pain, but Yusei knows that her hidden emotion is something else. Yusei ends up defeating Aki in the end. Aki is then taken away from the scene by Divine.

When the Crimson Dragon appeared in the middle of Yusei's and Jack's duel, it showed her, Yusei, Jack, and Luna a vision of the Satellite area being destroyed by a mysterious spider drawing which looks like the spider drawings of the Nazca lines.

Before Yusei's confrontation with Kyosuke Kiryu, his birthmark begins to react inside of the B.A.D area. This triggers Aki, Luna, and Jack's birthmarks as well. Aki instinctively senses that he is responsible for the reaction and knows that it is related to the vision they witnessed during the Fortune Cup. Leo goes in search of her for her aid in fighting the Dark Signers, but he, along with Luna are kidnapped by Divine. Whilst looking for Divine, who had gotten involved in a duel against Carly, she encounters Misty, who reveals herself as a Dark Signer. She challenges Aki to a duel for revenge.

Dragon Mark:
Aki's Birthmark allows her to make any damage done in a duel to her opponent real. So this is why she caused accidents when dueling because she didn't know how to maintain the power. She wears a hairband to keep these powers under control.

When Leo and Dexter decide to challenge the Black Rose Witch to a duel, Aki first sees Yusei Fudo and his Dragon's Birthmark. She expressed surprise to the fact that another individual also possesses such a birthmark. She notes it as a "wretched mark" before she leaves from the scene. After meeting Yusei, Aki changes her outlook on the world. Since they haven't had a chance to talk, she sees Yusei as a challenge since she knows he possesses a mark similar to hers.

In the semifinals, her opponent for the round was Kodo Kinomiya. Despite Kodo pushing her psychological limits, Aki still claims victory in the duel. Her dragon mark, the left claw, is revealed towards the end of the duel.

Aki plays a Plant Deck that is "Black Rose" themed. Her cards consists of gaining control of her opponents' monsters and inflicting damage by card effects. It is also aimed at summoning her ace card "Black Rose Dragon", the monster that supposedly led to her alias, the "Black Rose Witch."

It's the Times, so the article might disappear behind their suscription paywall at some point, but the link above works for now.  Here's the first paragraph:

Nisan didn’t mean to fall in love with Nemutan. Their first encounter — at a comic-book convention that Nisan’s gaming friends dragged him to in Tokyo — was serendipitous. Nisan was wandering aimlessly around the crowded exhibition hall when he suddenly found himself staring into Nemutan’s bright blue eyes. In the beginning, they were just friends. Then, when Nisan got his driver’s license a few months later, he invited Nemutan for a ride around town in his beat-up Toyota. They went to a beach, not far from the home he shares with his parents in a suburb of Tokyo. It was the first of many road trips they would take together. As they got to know each other, they traveled hundreds of miles west — to Kyoto, Osaka and Nara, sleeping in his car or crashing on friends’ couches to save money. They took touristy pictures under cherry trees, frolicked like children on merry-go-rounds and slurped noodles on street corners. Now, after three years together, they are virtually inseparable. “I’ve experienced so many amazing things because of her,” Nisan told me, rubbing Nemutan’s leg warmly. “She has really changed my life.”

The piece was written by Lisa Katayama, who also writes the TokyoMango blog:
