Reasons the Kill la Kill voice actors are the best ever.
Here’s a couple of my favorite quotes from the Anime Expo talk sessions and Q and A panels featuring Ami Koshimizu (Ryuko’s VA) and Ryoka Yuzuki (Satsuki’s VA)
“Who’s your favorite character that’s not your own?”
Ami: “Onee-san…Onee-san…hey onee-san…”
Ryoka: “And what about you?”
Ami: “My favorite character is Satsuki.”
Ryoka: “But what about Senketsu??”
"Can you recite your favorite line from the show?"
Ryoka: “RYUKO MATOI!!!!”
Ami: “SATSUKI KRYUIN!!!!!!”
"What’s your favorite episode?"
Ami: “Episode 4, the no tardy to school day”
Ryoka: “Oh. That was my least favorite. I didn’t get to be in it and everyone else looked like they were having a lot of fun. My favorite was episode 20, when I got to show up wearing Senketsu. It was like I stole someone else’s boyfriend.”
"Can you recite Satsuki’s opening lines?"
Ryoka: “FEAR IS FREEDOM!! …[etc]… YOU PIGS IN HUMAN CLOTHING!!
*She stands up and starts pointing wildly at the audience*
Ryoka: “YOU PIGS IN HUMAN CLOTHING!! PIGS IN HUMAN CLOTHING!!!! YOU PIGS!!!!!”
*instantly switches back to her normal voice*
Ryoka: “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to insult you. That was all Satsuki!”
"Are there traits of your character that you can see in yourself?"
Ami: “You look like Satsuki.”
Ryoka: “Yes, I do have rather thick eyebrows. ”
Kazuki Nakashima: “I think the entire cast is quite similar to their characters.”
Ami: “What?? I’m not gangster!!”
Kazuki: “You’re the most gangster of us all!”
"What was one difficult part of voice acting?"
Ryoka: “There were times when I was really doubting myself and my ability to portray Satsuki. During those times, it was always the actors who play the Elite Four who really encouraged me and insisted that I was their Satsuki Sama.”
Ami: “Particularly Nonon?”
Ryoka: “Yes, especially Nonon. Nonon actually gave me a tool to help me sculpt my eyebrows.”
And a couple quotes from the artist Sushio. Because Sushio.
"So, what did you think of the English dub?"
Sushio: “I thought the animation was really great!”
"How did you come up with the outfit designs?"
Sushio: “I just sat there and meditated and then came up with it.”
*Ami stands up, gesturing to the rather revealing Sensetsu that she’s wearing*
Ami: “You thought of this when you were meditating??”
Unfortunately, merely writing out what they said in no way captures their facial expressions and interactions. Those were golden. Ami in particular was super adorably expressive ^^
Also, Eir Aoi KILLED it in her concert!!

Tutorial: from paper to digital.
Hey ya’ll! I’m not much of a tutorial person, but this was a technique that I learned from Syuzuki, one of my favorite artists back in the day, when I was 13. I memorized the technique and it’s been one of the most useful things I can do on photoshop. This was something that really helped me, and I hope that it will be useful for even some of you.
In this tutorial, I will be going step by step how I take something from my sketchbook and color it on photoshop.
Big news guys, share this with as many roleplayers as you can!
i’m just amazed people still use it
skype is so much less stressful
Skype is terrible, I really don’t like it because it always lags my computer down to the point I can only use it or browse the internet.
Skype is GREAT for video calls and stuff but msn was the better chat messenger by far.
I’m really mad about this, I don’t want to use skype, I’d rather use pesterchum, I’m not even kidding.
But I’m going to have to use it regardless because everyone else I know will be using it whether I like it or not.
you can always use browser chatting tools or trillian?
