Just like a sprinkling of snow left in the shade When spring arrives, these feelings, they will stay What words are there to clear my bed of love?

Feature the Best Singer (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 22)

My heart! I finally have a chance to bring up this human and his (literally) magical music again! Teika (Magic-Kyun Renaissance!) is too much for me, guys. He can’t be a husbando because he’s a minor, but if you gave his voice to one of his older brothers? Totally husbando material. I mean, look at…… Continue reading Feature the Best Singer (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 22)

Russia’s Famous Love Machine – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (10/06/18)

This is just too much for my poor heart to take. I know that the song doesn’t fit exactly, I know it, but it’s been stuck in my head for days now, and the thought of combining Victor Nikiforov with the words “Russia’s Greatest Love Machine” was too much for me to pass up. So,…… Continue reading Russia’s Famous Love Machine – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (10/06/18)

Faces of the Scouting Regiment – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (09/29/18)

The amount of time, energy, planning, cooperation, and editing that went into this video titled “2000 Years Ago” is astounding. The collaboration of 20 cosplayers and 3 crew members was filmed in Germany. Entirely amateur, they have no film making experience,…… Continue reading Faces of the Scouting Regiment – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (09/29/18)

I’m laughing at myself because, in spite of recognizing how annoying the sped of version of “Me and My Broken Heart” by Rixton used here is, I couldn’t help but keep watching the AMV. And then I couldn’t help but want to watch Magic-Kyun! Renaissance again (which is something you should TOTALLY watch if you…… Continue reading “All I need’s a little love in my life.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (07/14/18)

“Before I lead with the worst of me…” –CMV/AMV Saturday (07/07/18)

This video is going to break you; you’re welcome. https://youtu.be/UToOMcZICA4 Do you know how many times I’ve listened to this song/watched this animation? No, of course not, because how could you? How could you know that at least a dozen of the video’s views came from me? The song’s lyrics and the emotion fits the…… Continue reading “Before I lead with the worst of me…” –CMV/AMV Saturday (07/07/18)
