Sorry everyone for the lack of posts!! It will have to be the case for another week as I am currently traveling with my sister in the US!! Those that follow me on Twitter will know this as I have been tweeting about our trip. My (younger) sister is a crack up!!

I’ve been trying to read some manga and watch some anime but the iPad is not very compatible with the usual sites and for some reason I can’t get onto the manga sites either!!! Argh!! I get this strange message – I’ve shown it below. To keep you guys entertained I’ve added a few pics from the trip!!! Enjoy!!!

P.s. Btw cos I’m doing this on my iPhone, formatting is probably going to be quite crap here!! Talk soon!!!

ANOTHER year has passed! Yasashii sekai… is now a ripe old age of THREE!!! Awwww! I would have never imagined to get this far!! I feel like this year has gone by very quickly. I feel a bit apologetic as I have been busier this year resulting in fewer posts. I hope you guys still find it entertaining and enjoy spending a few moments of your time here. *cross fingers*

Now what are the key highlights in the last 12 months? Let’s just quickly run through a few memorable stories from the last 12 months…

Let’s start with the mangas!!

Girl Friends

Oh I miss Mari and Akko!!! This manga series was sweet, lovey and dovey and obviously had some drama thrown in. On the whole we got we wanted and they even got down to some serious business. HOHOHOHOHO!! I would have loved to see them grow up into women in the workforce!!! I must say, the art here is amazing and there have been some scenes that are absolutely breathtaking…*thinks of the karaoke scene*

Octave

This manga series seriously brings up a mixed bag of feelings. It’s good at times and sucks in some chapters too. On the whole, it’s still an amazing piece of work with almost real like characters. Oh and best of all, it’s an adult woman with ANOTHER adult woman! Bring these on!!!

Sasameki Koto

FINALLY Ushio realises her feelings for Sumi!! BUT OMG this manga is going at one-tenth of the pace of a snail’s! I’ve almost forgotten where we’re up to! *pause* Actually…I have forgotten -_-” *SIGH* Pick up the speed please!!

Now onto the animes!!!

K-ON!!

Loved the gang although I did feel season 2 lacked the power to keep my attention and the music wasn’t as good. Nevertheless, I still think Mio and the gang (admittedly I have a soft spot for Mio) are heaps cool! Love the hoodie, Mio!! *wink*

So Ra no Wo To

I felt like this was the K-ON! gang but in another time and world!! hahaha Can you guys spot the parody pic up above?? hehehe Story wise I felt like it lacked a bit of excitement but it was pleasant to watch. Art was wow too!!

Sono Hanabira

Oooh la la… *wasn’t me look* Umm…go to Google images and do a search to find out what the big hoo haa is about. I should give the visual novel a go…anyone know whether I can get a Mac friendly version?

Highschool of the Dead

Scantily dressed and well endowed girls carrying guns and kicking arse…Oh! There are guys and some zombies around too! hahaha I didn’t expect this one to be so entertaining and despite the ecchi-ness I recall that there was some real depth in seeing the gang survive the zombies breakout. I’m looking forward to the OVA!

Angel Beats

Great art!! And of course Tenshi and her ma po tofu!! HAHAHA OOOOOH maybe I’ll make some this weekend!!! YUM!!

Psychic Detective Yakumo

I really enjoyed watching this paranormal detective show. The stories were moving and the soundtrack is just AMAZING!!! Must give this a go!! I bought the OST. ^_^

I’m not usually a huge fan of watching TV shows but this year was an exception!!

Rizzoli & Isles

A kick arse detective TV show with a super cool headstrong detective and a smarty pants elegant looking medical examiner!! LOVE this! And they’re coming back for a season 2! OH YEAH!!

The Real L Word

This was entertaining to some degree (I preferred some stories over others) but some were a BIT too much…I don’t regret watching it though!! hahaha My favourite couples: Stamie & Tracy and Nikki & Jill and Mikey & Raquel!!

Lip Service

This is just drama but is like the Real L Word but with a heavy layer of dark themes shrouding it…drugs…lots of alcohol and a hidden past. It’s a quality drama with nice to watch characters but I didn’t like the heaviness of this drama. Not really my thing.

However, the best of all in this category for me must be…

***Alicia and Kalinda from The Good Wife***

Trust me!! This is good!! It’s a legal drama show. Here’s a clip of their scenes in the first episode.

Hope you guys have enjoyed your time at Yasashii sekai…!!!! Thank you everyone for your support!!!

Yasashii sekai…’s 2 year old birthday post

Yasashii sekai…’s 1 year old birthday post

Happy new year!!! I sincerely wish that your coming year will be full of surprises, excitement and smiles!!! Oh and of course, MORE YURI!!! hahahaha!! Have an awesome day everyone!!!

It’s that time of the year again!! Time flies and I can still remember how excited I was when I found the perfect x’mas picture last year. Yes, I know this year’s pales in comparison but that one was hard to beat!!! In any case, I wish you all a very merry x’mas. Lots of love and kisses from those around you and most importantly pressies!! LOL Having said that, the most important thing is to be optimistic and happy with yourself. Merry CHRISTMAS!!!

So I was finally at home reasonably early and about to do some yuri catchup when something went “DING” in my head…

OMG…is it today!?!? *goes off to check* OMG!!! It’s TODAY!!!

YES! That’s right!! Yasashii sekai… has now been around TWO WHOLE YEARS (and 1 day cos I forgot :P)!!! WOW WOW WOW!!! I can hardly believe it myself!!

Work has been hectic for me this year so regulars to my blog would notice that it’s updated less frequently than it used to but I will TRY to keep it up!!! Before I ramble on too much, let’s have a quick recap of some highlights in the last 365 days…

~AOI HANA~

This one must top my list!!! Breathtaking art, doki doki moments and with an opening that gives you that indescribable “AWWWWWW” warm fuzzy feeling…what more can we ask as yuri fans?! Oh and did I mention an absolute squeal fest opening song and closing scene!?!?! ^___________^ I love some of the quotes in the anime so I chose to revisit a few…

SASAMEKI KOTO

Not quite as perfect as Aoi Hana but hey! that one is hard to beat!! Sasameki Koto is in my opinion a bit more patchy in terms of yuri enjoyment. There are some moments which captures the hilarious slapstick comedy but at times can also get quite serious…almost too serious. In my opinion, the manga (particularly the 2nd half) is much better. The art always manage to take my breath away every so often.

K-ON!

LOVED LOVED LOOOOOOVED this anime!!! Light-hearted and HEAPs of fun!!! And best of all, about MUSIC!!!! YAY!!! I think my favourite characters were Yui and Mio!!! *BEAM*

TO ARU KAGAKU NO RAILGUN

Basically a story about an academy filled with elite bright students equipped with special powers but they spiced things up with a sprinkle of yuri, a glimpse of the different types of panties available and flashes of someone’s panties. “Aaaaah. Seeing your striped panties always calms me down.” PWAHAHAHAAHAHA

KAMPFER

This was one just for laughs but was entertaining enough!!! ROFL!!! SUPER DODGY!!! This anime crossed paths with bondage, stalkers, some tongue action, groping, lingerie, cat ears/tails, cosplay, wearing aprons with nothing underneath O_Ox9999999, pocky game…the list goes on…hmm…looking at this list, no wonder Sapphire Onee-chan is a fan of this anime!!!! :P

SAKI

Mahjong has never been this exciting before!! And SOOOOOOOOOO YURIFIED!!! hahaha If only there was season 2!!!! ::CRIES::

CANAAN

Last but not least is Canaan!!! Maria x Canaan!! *SQUEAL* The first half was better than the first half though…I loved the theme songs!! I bought the singles!!

~~~~~~~~

PWOAH! I’m exhausted with writing about all the above!! Well this year, I want to do something different. I am going to see who are some of my most active regulars on my blog and their comments!!! This will be INTERESTING!!! The date is the day on which they commented for the first time. This will be approx. as some people could have commented earlier on as Anonymous etc. Likewise the number of pages includes all comments where the person posted and was referred to by another commenter BUT, it does give us an idea who were the SPAMMERS!! hahahaha :P (FYI, each page is roughly 20 comments)

Starting with who made the first comment…

The first post

I just wanted to say Horraaay! A couple weeks ago I stumbled here while looking for any info on the 4th season. I was happy to find somebody as anxious as I was about the release date, and tonight I checked  http://www.gokigenyou.com and saw the 2009 and a 1 on the main image of the site, so I jumped over here to see if it was what I hoped it was! And it was! Now I just hope a good fansubbing group will do it right away. I intend to buy it when it’s released in the US officially, but waiting a year+ for Right Stuf to release would be murder! It was hard enough waiting for the first season to arrive and I’d already seen it.

Hrm, I know they have the rights to seasons 1-3, but I wonder if that carries over to season 4. Hopefully not.

P.S. I read your ‘about me’ section, and you really shouldn’t have skipped over most of Sailor Moon, you should watch it all. (source)

Memorable comments!!

I… I may have to see this just to understand how obsurd it is. *nod nod* (source – Seikon no Qwaser)

Ooh does this mean you finished all the episodes? I love love love BOSS! So cool. Eriko’s the kind of woman I would follow like a puppy dog, swooning. I could SO call her Onee-sama. (source – Boss jdrama)

Luckily I work overnight so nobody important could see, but I was glad it didn’t cause any worrisome questions about why exactly my IE window was plastered with panty-shots (and random boobies with faces…)

I swear just the boobies with faces are enough to make me want to see! (Strangely though, it’s not the first series I saw with boob faces.) (source – Chu-bra anime)

*gasp* I can’t believe I never heard of this! Too bad the games aren’t in english… BUT WAIT! Somebody’s translating the first game! They’re supposedly very far, but the last update was in May, so I dunno.

And hehe, it’s amusing to see you fret over sharing “dodgy” stuff. (source – Hanabira)

Person A / Viridian ~ 1 December 2008 (7 pages)

The first post

this is a subbed version of it (source – hehehe it’s one of the Shoujo Sect post! TRUST you to comment on that!!! :P Who would have thought that I’d pull this one out after SOOOOO long?!! MUAAHAHAHAHA)

Memorable comments!!

:0 shhhh!!!!!!! not so loud! that’s supposed to be a secret! Haha I guess I am the type that can cry pretty easily. Talking about sad movies, have you seen this one called “A Moment to Remember” ? (source)

I personally think Virgin Snow is…. well, I don’t know, it’s at least decent, tbh I secretly shed a few tears while watching it lol (source – Aoi Miyazaki)

There is Maka Maka. http://mangarun.com/maka-maka

Funny how some of the scenes are a bit true to reality :P At least for me. It’s in color too! Enjoy! (source – Shoujo Sect again!)

Memorable comments!!

HEY!!!!!

I had my comment box open so I didn’t see your SNEAKY comment Nakayo!!!
RAWR! -_# ::MASSIVE GLOMPING ACTION TO NAKAYO AND VIRIDIAN:: ::places Nakayo in her naughty imouto bag and place G in her naughty otouto bag:: STAY THERE! (source – Kampfer)

That had to be the most heated kiss I have ever seen in an anime..EVER! I was like O_O WHOAAH! *rewind…replay* *innocent face* I just had to confirm that actually happened the “way” it happened.

*gives Kampfer The Best Kiss Award* (would have been better if it were the female Natsuru, but we all know that already) (source)

j’adore j’adore j’adore!!!! FINALLY!!! It feels like it took forever for this chapter to come into my life! Totally epic and totally worth all that wait and frustration Morinaga put us through!

If Mari rejected Akko again this time, I’d go absolutely insane, knock her a good one, then steal Akko for myself! *daydreams into AkkoXMari couple time*~~~Drinking from the same straw, playing a round of strawberry pocky, holding hands, thinking about one another…matching panties…~~~ahhhhh life is sweeeeeeet!~~~

*dashes off to send Maki Maki a HUGE Thank you* (source – Girl Friends)

Choto mate! I was just “thinking” about it whereas you actually “did” it. :P
Plus that’s exactly the same thing..how does it make me crazier? Hahaha!

Both of your excitement is amplifying my excitement! I wish we hung out, then it would be even more fun! Marimite parties every episode night! ^__^ (source)

LOL! Not as raunchy as Shoujo Sect, but pretty darn close! I’m sure you read the first volume by now. hehe. I want to live in a dorm like that! (source)

I did spot a cute but super cheesy card…it was a white square card and on the front was a drawing of a noughts and crosses games with a sparkly heart in the middle of the game and below it, it said… “you’ve won my heart!” AHAHAHAHAHAHA Have fun guys!!!
