Rena’s outfit for ‘Kareha no Station’ is highly reminiscent of Industrial-Revolution-era fashion, with some very mild steampunk elements. Now I know Assassin’s Creed II was set way before that (at least 200 years before the Industrial Revolution), but something about the melancholic rendition of the main theme in ‘Ezio’s Family’ made me think of a grim, vengeful Matsui Rena. Equipped with nothing more than a bladed fan and her trusty rifle, she searches for justice, looking to even the score with an ex-lover who spurned her and left her for dead on the desert railroad.
Yes, I just came up with that terrible backstory on the spot.
Drawing inspiration from Assassin’s Creed II’s Courtesan multiplayer avatar, this is an attempt at a more souped-up, combat-friendly version of Rena’s trademark costume. The original idea was to integrate the umbrella with the musket for a ‘concealed weapon’ concept, but I dropped it for now.
I may consider using this for my Battle Unit Matsuri series after I’ve cleaned it up a bit more.

French Kiss 6th Single Type-D (Preview Song) Kokoro no Kagi (Kuramochi Asuka Solo)
i had such a crazy dream last night you guys
48g did a usa tour and so all of us came out for their concert in la right and there was this one part of the performance where they all were put on those wires and flew around and stuff and it was hella cool but then like
the mechanism malfunctioned and they all started plummeting down and everyone was freaking out
suddenly i wake up (well i’m still asleep) but like it’s twenty minutes before the concert again and apparently i stopped and rewound time to stop this from happening and like lucy liu is there and she also has time powers and gives me this symbol so that other time power users can recognize me and gives me instructions as where to go and stuff and i’m like “yeah gonna go save akb”
so i follow all of lucy liu’s instructions but i end up in like a pro-mutant rally and it’s like “okay guys i understand this is probably important but this is not what i’m trying to do pls” and then i woke up for like actually waking up

Anonymous asked: “Some month (or weeks I don't remember) ago, you made a kind of survey on Google Drive to poll to people in the fandom and know who they were (gender, age, oshis, fave single, ect...). What did you do of it? Sorry for the bother but I just remembered it and I was curious”
I’m still compiling some of the data, there was a lot more responses than I had anticipated and it’s a lot go to through.
Once I have everything tabulated I’d like to post some interesting statistics. Stuff like “most popular member by country,” “opinions on dating rules among female fans vs. male fans,” stuff like that.
