9th Birthday

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

best year of my life I would say ... I was able to meet Minami Ozaki for the first time at the Cartoonist in Nice this year ... Olivier was so successful in inviting her for this event ... \(^_^)/ ...
such a nice environment for a convention and so great although it was only for 2 days, but hey, I got everthing I ever dreamed of ... (*_*) ...
wrote a longer report about this so if you're interested, let me know and I'll send you the link ... (^_~) ...

and that's where my thank-list starts this year ... m( _ _ )m ...

1st the biggest thank you of all time to Minami Ozaki, the goddess herself for taking so much time to talk to me in Nice and being so patient with all my signature wishes and even taking the time to draw my beloved Kouji Nanjou for me ... (*_*) ...
2nd big thank you to Yoshida giving me the most selfless present of all time by writing a fan letter to Minami Ozaki in my name in advance of the Cartoonist in Nice with such a recall value that she even asked me to thank him ... (*_*) ...
3rd big thank you goes to Jeremy who also made my time in Nice even better by telling Minami Ozaki about my collection crazyness ... LOL ...
4th thank you again to Mandarake for the great signed Cathexis Cel with matching background for auction there ... (^_^) ...
5th thank you to a Yahoo auction with a great Zetsuai Cel + Douga out of my fav scene ... (*_*) ... and the 2 awesome FanCels ...

I went to some more conventions beside the Cartoonist in Nice/France this year ... (^_^) ...
the Leipziger Buchmesse in Leipzig/Germany where I was able to meet Tite Kubo, Ema Toyama and Atsushi Ohkubo ... signatures of all of them and even 2 original drawn Shikishi from Ema Toyama ...
the MMC in Berlin/Germany there I could meet Ryuta Amazume and got signatures over signatures a sweet cute drawing of Nana and Kaoru and won a Meet&Greet with a live bondage demonstration ... LOL ...

8th Birthday
last modified: Tuesday, October 09, 2012 (2:56:54 AM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

last year was like an emotional rollercoaster ... (^_^;;;) ...

the year started awesome ... well that's what I thought in the beginning ... I got one of the ôonce in a lifetimeö chances to buy a whole collection and was for several days the happiest person on the planet ... (*_*) ...
but I never even got told the total price ...
out of the blue I was called a liar because my usage of the subjunctive in a question might not be perfect in English since it is not my native language and my try to clarify the misunderstanding ended in telling me that what I asked in the question was correct and that is how the conversation ended ... (O.o) ...
I felt totally pranked ... (>.<) ...

that reminded me sadly of a mail I got the year before from another collector telling me that I shouldn't communicate in a foreign language ... (-.-) ...

I always give my best and translate everything at least twice (that is also why my answers sometimes take a few days) of course my English is not perfect and if I'm excited about an email I may make even more mistakes especially because I try to answer as fast as possible to not miss a chance ... (-.-) ...
that might be the key problem!!!

anyhow ... the year was much better after that ... (^_^) ...
and that's where my thank-list starts this year ... m( _ _ )m ...

1st of all a big thank you to Alielle for my new Cathexis Cel ... (*_*) ... I asked her in 2004 about it and suddenly she wrote me that she would sell it now ... *does still the super happy dance* ... I got the matching Douga in the meantime ... (*_*) ... so another happy reunion!!!
2nd big thank you to a Yahoo auction with a great Zetsuai Douga ... (*_*) ...
3rd big thank you goes again to Mandarake for the great signed Bronze Cel for auction there ... (^_^) ...

I went again to conventions this year ... (^_^) ...
the MMC in Berlin/Germany (a last minute decision because Makoto Tateno was in my hometown, got several Manga signed, won a Meet&Greet where I got a drawing), the AnimagiC in Bonn/Germany again (was able to meet Kanan Minami and Shouji Satou and got several items signed, but sadly no drawing) and then I was for the first time at the AniNite in Vienna/Austria (was able to meet Nao Yazawa, Yuna Kagesaki and Yoshiki Tonogai and got several drawings and thanks to Frosty also the possibility to meet Nao privately a day before the AniNite, made me an even bigger fan!!!
thanks to the relatively bad organized AniNite I had the possibility to ask all the questions I ever wanted to ask in a nearly private Q&A session ... LOL ...)

the only convention I couldn't attend was the Connichi in Kassel/Germany ... (T_T) ... there were no special guests announced by the time I planned my vacation and so I skipped this one ... one month before the convention was held they announced Hinako Takanaka and Ayano Yamane!!! ... (T_T) ... I was so sad to miss that chance ...
at the weekend of the convention my computer stopped working which made me even sadder ... (>.<) ...
some days later Janniboy1980 told me that he was not only there but also took on the burden of standing with nearly only female fans in a long row to get a Shikishi signed just for me ... (*_*) ... you can't imagine how happy I was when he told me and showed me a picture of him with Ayano Yamane holing my Shikishi ... (*_*) ... thank you so much again Janniboy1980!!! ... m( _ _ )m ...

and last but not least a big thank you to the anonymous informant telling me about the greatest news ever, that Minami Ozaki will be at the Cartoonist next year in Nice/France ... (O.o) ... first thing I did the next day was to apply for leave at work so that there will be no way that I will miss that chance!!! ... LOL ... I know, crazy ... (^_~) ...

that was my last year of collecting ... I have the feeling that the next year will be awesome ... (already searched for my French books, haven't used them in years, but now I have a very good reason) ...

7th Birthday

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

that was an awesome collecting year ... \(^_^)/ ...

it started with three Zetsuai Cels and the three breathtaking original Zetsuai Settei pages from Linda ... (*_*) ...
followed by two Cathexis Cels on Mandarake ... (^_^) ...
then again Linda with an awesome Cathexis Cel ... (*_*) ...
after that I could luckily snatch three "unknown" Zetsuai Cels on Yahoo ... (O.o) ...
followed again by another Zetsuai Cel from Mandarake ... (^_^) ...
and last but not least that absolut gorgeous Zetsuai Cel from Linda which was on my wishlist for such a long time ... (*_*) ...

so my biggest thank you for the last year goes to Linda of course!!! ... m( _ _ )m ...
can't thank you enough dear for parting with all of your Zetsuai and Cathexis items ... (*_*) ... you made an obsessed fangirl superhappy!!! ... (^_^) ...

well I also had to let two auctions go this year ... the two charity auctions from Minami Ozaki ... *sigh* ... I'm still very sad that this once-in-a-lifetime chance went over without me being able to do anything ... (T_T) ...

but then I got another big wish of mine granted ... (*_*) ... Minami Ozaki signed her new book and I got one personally signed for me ... m( _ _ )m ...

Zetsu

P.S.: of course also a big thank you to Takashi Okazaki and Nozomu Tamaki for the great drawings both made for me ... m( _ _ )m ... that was a very funny weekend!!!

Happy Halloween

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

Happy Halloween ... (^_^) ...
http://i55.tinypic.com/2lbl5xf.png

I finally found some time to blog again ... the last weeks were tough ... moving to a bigger house took ages ... (>.<) ... still so much to do, but so much more space for my Minami Ozaki collection ...

was ill for over a month and while driving again to the doc two weeks ago, another woman crashed into my car on the parking lot ... (>.<) ... and when I came back and saw my car unable to enter it or to drive it even an inch, because the other car was right into it ... (O.o) ... I called the police ... the police was totally surprised too and called the fire department ... and just when the fire service arrived, the woman came back ... she was totally drunk and has not noticed the crash at all ... (>.<) ...

at least my little baby-car is still moving ...

yeah now to the good news:
during Linda's offer periode I sent in an offer too ... (^_^) ... and guess what??? ... it was accepted ... *does the happy dance* ...
after fully paying for everything you will be able to see the awesome Zetsuai settei set in my gallery ... (*_*) ... so great ... never saw any other original settei from any of the Minami Ozaki OVA before ... so a big dream comes true and I can finally reunite another cel with its douga which I got several years ago from Wendy (thank you very much again for it) ... AND last but not least ... the ultimate Koji cel - bleeding and requesting to kill him ... (*_*) ...

you see I'm the happiest collecting girl on earth ... (^_^) ...

and what have I seen last night on Minami Ozaki's blog??? ... she started to twitter ... (O.o) ...
http://twitter.com/minamiozaki
how cool is that ... I posted a tweet myself right away ... and when I woke up this morning I got a tweet back ... (*_*) ...

Thank you summary ... (^_~) ...
last modified: Thursday, August 06, 2009 (4:49:15 AM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

wow ... that's a long time since my last blog ... (O.o) ...

after I reached the 356 days-mark without a new Zetsuai cel in my collection in April 2009, I was despaired enough to buy all the Cels left in Rick's Shop ... (^_^;;;) ...
*lol* ... I was so unutterable happy when I finally held them in my hands ... (*_*) ...
and then there was this great auction with 2 Cathexis Douga ... (*_*) ... (a big thank you to Nida again for calling my attention) ... (^_~) ...
also a biiiiiiiig thank you to Chris for parting with the Hanken/Harmony Cel ... it's like a long cherished dream coming true ... (*_*) ... *does the happy happy dance* ... (and still that unanswered question, what that Hanken was used for) ... (?_?) ... any help would be really appreciated!!!
then suddenly a Mandy auction popped up with another cel of my favorite scene ... *felt like heaven* ... well after the auction ended and after it reached a price much higher than I expected, it felt a little less like heaven, but hey ... (^_~) ...
last but not least: thaaaaaaaaaank you very much Jenn for letting one of your treasures go ... *does the happy dance again* ... (^_^) ...

well that was all of the Cel update since my last blog 9 months ago ... (^_^) ...

as for the rest of my life I had the first laser therapy of my retina yesterday to prevent retinal detachment which would lead to blindness ... (>.<) ... my eye is still aching a little but it worked well so far ... I will need at least 6 more of them ... it went unfortunately really slow because I had a circulatory collapse in the middle of it ... (O.o) ... never had one before ...

so I think that was all ... oh no ... one more thing ... I created a twitter page a little while ago ... *lol* ... I had to use an underscore ... all nicks were gone already ... (T_T) ...
http://twitter.com/Zetsu_Ai

I put in there all the Cels I missed so far during my years of collecting ... *sighs* ... so many already ... (-.-) ... where have you all gone to??? ... *cries* ...

Zetsu

P.S.: uh and I'm nearly done uploading all Genga from 2007 ... (^_^) ... I sorted them by cuts, because all in only one category would have been too much ... (O.o) ... still not sure if I should keep it this way ... hm ...

Finally 200 days ...
last modified: Sunday, November 23, 2008 (2:14:07 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

yeah a sad record ... 200 days without a new Zetsuai addition to my Gallery ... *cries* ...

but that's surely the punishment for not having uploaded everything until now ... so I'll try to soothing the cel gods with the sacrifice of 4 new Naruto pieces ... m( _ _ )m ...
with my very first Repro in between ... (^_^) ...

last but not least an accident update:
have to stay some more days at home ... the pain in my neck reached my back ... (-.-) ... yay ... it rhymes ... the only possitive thing on it ... have a huge pile of pills near my bed ...

well ... so more time for updates ... always look on the bright side of fife ... (^_~) ...

Car accident ... (-.-) ...
last modified: Thursday, November 20, 2008 (8:22:36 AM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

well ... I thought my next post would be about me having had time to upload all the baeuties waiting to join my Cel Gallery, but it isn't ...

yesterday, when I drove home from work with my poor little baby-car I had a car accident ... someone bumped in me during a tailback ... I slowed down my car, but the woman behind me did not ...
my head bashed against the neck support ... luckily I was able to stop my car completely so that I didn't pushed the next car too ...
after that I was in the emergency room for 3 hours ... (>.<) ...the doc said it is a whiplash ... we will see ... I still have a splitting headache ... but the rest is well ... even my car looks not so bad ... (^_^) ... the other car was really trash ... it was a lowered one and because mine is quite high there are only some car body damages and a crooked exhaust pipe on my baby-car ...

I hope I can write about something nice next time ... (^_^;;;) ...

4th Birthday

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

hisashiburi ... m( _ _ )m ... gomenne ...

my last weblog was more than one year ago ... (O.o) ... and I'm still not done with all my updates ... (-.-) ... shame on me ...

but it happened a lot during that time ... after some seminars in England, I got a job as Software-Tester at T-Mobile Bonn in Germany ... (^_^) ...
the job is real fun, but I have nearly no time left for something else ... I'm really sorry for all the unanswered emails which are still in my inbox ... some for a bunch of months ... (>.<) ... SORRY!!! ... I haven't forgot you all, but I'm quite behind my schedule ...
and I have also not forgot about the Open House event 2008 ... I'll definitely write back everybody who worte me until X-Mas, when I have some weeks holiday ... promised!!!

back to the gallery topic:
can't believe that it's already the 9th of October again ... on the 9th of October in 2004 I began this cel collecting hobby ... so today is the first day of my 5th year of cel collecting ... yay ... *does the happy dance* ...

I'll celebrate it this year with adding something special to my collection ... I was able to get a little piece of the filmstrip of the Bronze OVA ... it was part of a lottery in the Margaret magazine in 1996 ... (^_^) ...
http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=256382
unfortunately it's not possible to scan it better ... the scan is quite dark compared to the original item ... but I hope you'll enjoy it nevertheless ... (^_^) ...

last but not least I was asked in the end of March from Mandarake if I would be interested in giving them an interview about my hobby in one of the next Zenbu (http://www.mandarake.co.jp/publish/zenbu/) ... and of course I was interested ... (^_~) ... and felt honored ... (*^_^*) ...

my interview was published in the current Zenbu 40:
japanese version (http://www.zetsuai.eu/Cels/Zenbu/Zenbu40Page347.jpg)
english version (http://www.zetsuai.eu/Cels/Zenbu/Zenbu40Page349.jpg)

I'm really happy about the result ... (^_^) ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

after a rest period and the completion of the latest Zenbu it's finally time to upload a bunch of Genga ... (^_^) ... this update is in chronological order of the Zetsuai OVA ...

5 scenes with altogether 17 Genga ... (^_^) ...
*Temp Genga Category* (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/master_query.asp?SeriesID=29856)

I never thought it would be sooooooooooooooo difficult to tell the different Genga-types apart ... (>.<) ... and I'm quite sure I made a lot of mistakes ... so PLEASE help me and let me know all the errors I made ... (^_^) ...

by the way: I won the Hirose Nanjo auction today ... *happybunnydance* ...
the cel gods seems to love me ... (*_*) ... here he is ... Koji's big brother ...

Celga 037 Bronze 007 (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=208355)

OMG ... (O.o) ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

it's here ...
I still can't believe it, but it's here ...
THE epitome of a collectors dream ...
THE ultimate package ...

1 Zetsuai Cel
6 Zetsuai Douga
and
302 Zetsuai Genga!!!
three hundred and two ... repeat it after me: THREE HUNDRED AND TWO!!!

the best offer of my life (thanks a million!!!) and it will take ages to scan them all ... (O.o) ...

but at least I started already with the Cel and its Douga today ... ok ok ... it's nothing compared to the admirable Genga of Koji singing his songs ... however you know where you can find me during the next few weeks ... I'm the sleepless Zetsuai junkie scanning 24 hours a day and if that's not enough - I'll scan the whole night too!!! ... (^_~) ...

Celga 036 Zetsuai 044 (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=206681)

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

on the current BWA I could win something ... (^_^) ...
do you like to know what??? ... here you are:

a gorgeous drawing from the Queen of Doujinshi herself (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=201430)

the auction description assumed that the two on the original drawing from Ryo Minami are Wakabayashi Genzo (?? ??) and Wakashimazu Ken (??? ?), but I'm quite sure that it's Izawa Mamoru (?? ?) and not Ken because it were also Genzo and Mamoru in the 4 Doujinshi pages from the same year which I have ... it also looks more like Mamoru than Ken and I never heared of the pairing Genzo Î Ken drawn from Minami Ozaki ... (O.o) ...

but I'm open for any correction ... (^_~) ...

I also added the Bookmark for Ronin's Birthday in the album, if someone is interested ... and I hope I could add there soon the next one after Tex-chan's reply ... can't wait to hear her wish ... (^.^) ...

that's all for now ... *does the happy dance* ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

yes, I'm still alive ... somehow ... *lol* ... some illnesses (maybe got sick of searching for a job) ... and also counted the days since the last time I bought a cel ... it were exactly 168 days ... nearly half a year ... can you believe it???

but today the sky was bright and the sun was shining on Nichibei ... a new Zetsuai Cel ... *jippieeeee* ...

feel free to have a first look at Serika (yes, again "only" a female character, but nevertheless I'm very glad that she will join my collection soon) ... (^_^) ...

Cel 39 Zetsuai 28 - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=197248)

by the way ... I had a lot of time while lying in bed and so I changed the "Fav scene of the month" thing into a "I show you all the characters of Zetsuai, which I have so far" thing ... (^_^) ...
I hope you like it somehow ... (^_~) ...

the plot summery of my series is still in progress ... I'm so pedantic ... (-.-) ... but I'm convinced that I'll make it before this year ends ... (O.o) ... *lol* ...

Many news ... (^_~) ...
last modified: Thursday, November 23, 2006 (12:53:09 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

here we go again ... time is passing by so fast at the moment ... I'll finally made the evaluation of the Open House event ... Open House??? now??? I know I know ... I'm quite late for it, but I'd like to present you all the answers at least ... (^_^) ...

1. Do you prefer to see the whole scene from which the particular Cel/Douga comes from or would only a screen capture be better (at the moment both galleries have the complete scenes)???

- 11 of you really like the whole scene thing
- 3 would prefer having screen captures partly because of a slower internet connection
- and finally 7 of you like to have both ... because they like to see the exact screenshot too to compare

in result I decided to do both ... (actually I already made it) ... the scene and the screen capture are available now at least for my gallery ... I haven't had the time yet to do it for my mother too, but maybe in the near future ... (^_^) ...

2. If it exist, would you like to have additionally a scan from the picture/page of the Manga too (not yet in none of the two galleries)???

- 11 of you would like to have a Manga scan to compare the differences
- 7 of you think that it hasn't much to do with the Cel collecting thing or think it would be too much

well ... I searched for the scenes in the Manga and had to determine, that it would be nearly impossible for my collection, but for my mothers it would work ... so maybe I'll add some Manga scans instead of a screen capture in her gallery and quit this idea for my collection ... (^_^) ...

3. Do you prefer to see the Cels/Douga in chronological order of the OVA (Zetsuai) or separated into the different characters (Kizuna) or something complete different???

this question was a disaster!!! ... most of you have good points pro and contra both ... it was balanced ... so I think I'll keep everything like it is in that case ... (^_~) ...
the chronological way works well for my gallery and the separation into characters for my mothers gallery ... so why changing it ... *lol* ...

4. Does it look better to separate the Cels from the Douga (Zetsuai) or put them all together in the same category (Kizuna)???

- 5 of you like to have them separate
- 5 prefer them together
- and amazing 10 really wants to have the sketches attached directly under the cel ... (-.-) ...

even if so many of you like to have it this way, I fear I will keep my line ... it's because for me a sketch is also a unique piece of art and deserves to be treated like that ... additionally I have 4 sketches without a matching cel which I have to present separately anyway, so why not the rest too ...
for all you connection-lovers I have in the description of every Cel/Douga/etc the links to everything belonging to the entry ... (^_^) ...

5. Would you like to see further "Scene of the Month" (Zetsuai)???

the resonance for this question was overwhelming ... 19!!! like to have more of them and only 1 would prefer a shot of the month instead of a scene because of the slower internet connection again ...

so I think the 1 against was outvoted by a big majority ... (^_~) ...

6. Do you like the design of the two galleries or is the "Zetsuai" design too plain and the "Kizuna" design too playful???

here I was a very very VERY little bit insulted ... (-.-) ... you like the design of my mothers gallery more than mine by the majority ... BUT ... most of you like the Zetsuai design too ... (^_^) ... only 4 of you don't like the flames (even if some others of you think that the flames make them remember my gallery the most) ... unfortunately there were no improvement suggestions for my gallery and I must confess that I have a lack of ideas to change something ... there was the 1 of you who suggested to put the pictures of Koji and Takuto from the bottom banner to the head banner, but I fear that won't change much, but nevertheless thank you for the idea ... (^_^) ...

(REST IN THE ANSWERS)

Second year of Cel collecting ends today ...
last modified: Monday, October 09, 2006 (2:14:46 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

it's unbelievable, but it's true ... exactly on October 9th 2004 I bought my very first Cel and started collecting at that day too ... (^_^) ...

and this is the collecting result:
1st year: 12 Cels, 11 Douga
2nd year: 22 Cels, 12 Douga, 3 Genga, 4 Backgrounds
---------
in total: 34 Cels, 23 Douga, 3 Genga, 4 Backgrounds

I never thought that I could top the first year ... (O.o) ... but it happened ... *does the happy bunny dance* ... I'm quite curious what the 3rd year will bring ... (^_~) ...

by the way ... after visiting so many galleries with animated gifs, when they have several Cels/Douga from one scene I tried to do it myself too, even if I have at the most 3 Cels from one scene (the others only contain 2):
animated Zetsuai Cels - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/master_query.asp?SeriesID=26077)
animated Zetsuai Douga - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/master_query.asp?SeriesID=26078)

nevertheless I hope you'll enjoy it ... (before I forget it: the Cathexis Cels has arrived in the meantime) ... (^_^) ...

Zetsu

P.S.: sorry sorry sorry Leah and Tex-chan ... m( _ _ )m ... I haven't had the time yet to answer your emails ... I hope I could do it soon ... and also the evaluation of the "Open House" event will be done soon ...

Open House!!!
last modified: Wednesday, September 13, 2006 (5:11:00 AM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

here we go again ... because the 2nd Annual "Open House" is starting soon, I'll finally post my questions for it ... (^_^) ...
I made my questions together with the questions for the gallery from my mother (http://kizuna.rubberslug.com), because she is not so fluent in English ... we will also give our feedback for all the other galleries together, so you're all welcome to send also only one feedback for our 2 galleries together ... (^_~) ...

here are our questions:

1. Do you prefer to see the whole scene from which the particular Cel/Douga come from or would only a screencapture be better (at the moment both galleries have the complete scenes)???

2. If it exist, would you like to have additionally a scan from the picture/page of the manga too (not yet in none of the two galleries)???

3. Do you prefer to see the Cels/Douga in chronological order of the OVA (Zetsu) or separated into the different characters (Kizuna) or something complete different???

4. Does it look better to separate the Cels from the Douga (Zetsu) or put them all together in the same category (Kizuna)???

5. Would you like to see further "Scene of the Month" (Zetsu)???

6. Do you like the design of the two galleries or is the "Zetsu" design too plain and the "Kizuna" design too playful???

7. Are the information for all series sufficient (above each category in both galleries) or would you like to have much more details???

last but not least the link to the 2nd Annual "Open House" Page: http://www.zetsuai.eu/2ndAnnualOpenHouse/
all participants are listed there with the links to their galleries and their questions as well ... (^_^) ...

I hope we'll all have as much fun as last year ... (^_^) ...

New arrivals!!!
last modified: Friday, August 04, 2006 (6:55:53 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

what a week ... I'm still not fully recovered (got additionally a big summer flu) ... (-.-) ...
but that's not all ... the first Cel package (from the auction last month) was held by the customs office ... *argh* ... so once again I drove across the city and fetched the package ... *does the no fees happy dance* ... (^_~) ...
the second package with the 2 sweet Serika Cels arrived on July the 30th in Germany and was held by the customs office for 2 days and left the office for delivery (I watched the tracking number), but it didn't arrived yesterday, so I began to worry (usually it only takes one day from the customs office, if they deliver it) and also today it seems that no package will arrive and then the postman rings ... *smiles* ... (^_^) ...
I had to pay some fees this time, but nevertheless I'm very happy that all Cels arrived save ... (^_^) ...

so watch out the new Cels:
Cel 35 Zetsuai 25 - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=168279)
Cel 36 Zetsuai 26 - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=168280)
BG 36 Zetsuai 26 - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=172906)
Cel+BG 36 Zetsuai 26 - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=172907)
Cel 37 Zetsuai 27 - (http://zetsuai.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=170920)

Auction won!!!

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

a Zetsuai Cel at Yahoo showed up and I could get it ... *happybunnydance* ...
thank you very much for that auction RX78GP02AGUNDAM ... m( _ _ )m ... I'm so glad to get it and hope it will help me to recover from my illness asap ... (^_^) ...

I think I saw this Cel once before at Usagi's House (which is closed in the meantime) ... but when I remember right it was more expensive there and had a Douga, but the auction was without Douga and finally a good deal ... (^_^) ... lucky me ...

I put it in my *Coming Soon* category ... it is Cel 37 Zetsuai 27 ... (^_^) ...

I'm irreclaimable!!!
last modified: Thursday, June 15, 2006 (3:22:34 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

well ... what should I say ... I'm totally out of money, but I got an offer for 2 new Zetsuai Cels that could join my collection ... I think you all already know what I've done ... I jumped at the chance ... (^_^);;; ...
fortunately I got additionally the opportunity to pay for them in 2 steps ... the first part is paid, but until I did not finished paying in the middle of next month, I won't add the 2 Cels in my coming soon category ... so please be a little patient ... (^_~) ...

but I think I could already say that they are both Cels of Serika again ... one blushing with a beautiful smile and the second one in the rain with umbrella (the Cel comes with a Layer
of water puddles and the original matching Background) ...

Did I ever mentioned, that ...
last modified: Monday, May 29, 2006 (5:13:04 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

... I hate the german customs office??? ... the package with the 8 Zetsuai Cels from the Yahoo auctions was held from the customs office once again, but I'm such a lucky girl, so that I did not have to pay any taxes ... *does the happy bunny happy dance* ...
so I do not hate them very much, but the shock, that the package did not arrive directly costs me some years of my life, like the one hour drive with my car across the city with the precious goods ... (O.o) ... but now they are saved!!! ... (^_~) ...

it took the whole weekend and the monday to scan everything, but finally they are all in the Gallery:
2 Zetsuai BG
8 Zetsuai Cels
3 Zetsuai Douga
2 Zetsuai Genga

the maybe biggest update I will ever have ... (can't imagine that something similar will ever happen again) ... except from the 3 Zetsuai Cels which will come soon too ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

I could win three more auctions with Zetsuai Cels ... (^_^) ... but the 2 Koji Cels, which were also for auction, were unfortunately far too expensive for me ... (-_-); ...
but the 2 Serika Cels are nevertheless very sweet and the Takuto Cel is gorgeous!!!

Description added ...
last modified: Thursday, May 18, 2006 (12:28:08 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

as some of you maybe already noticed, I added bilingual (German and English) descriptions to every scene of each Cel and Douga during the last 2 days ... (^_^) ... the descriptions for the Cathexis Cels are unfortunately very short, because there is not so much plot in the clips ... but the Zetsuai and Bronze descriptions are a little longer instead ... (^_~) ...

please feel free to let me know, if some of my English descriptions are too clumsy ... (^_~) ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^)/ ...

the 3 Zetsuai Douga from Uende arrived today ... (^_^) ... I already made the new scans and added them in the Gallery ... (thank you very much Wendy!!!) ...

in preparation for the 8 new Zetsuai Cels to come, I have sorted all Cels and Douga occur the sequence in the OVA's (except the *Coming Soon*s) ... the Name still has the continues number in the order I bought them ... I hope it is not too confusing ... (O.o) ... but I thought if I sort the Cels and Douga in that way it may be easier to find a certain Cel ...
I will also add the accurate minute and second in which the Cel or Douga was shown in the OVA soon ... (^_^) ... please enjoy ...

Captain Tsubasa Cel ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^) ...

I broke my oath to buy no other Cels than Zetsuai/Bronze/Cathexis ... but it's a great one ... (^_^) ...

nevertheless a wonderful Cel of Genzo Wakabayashi ... unfortunately I have no idea from which of the Captain Tsubasa series it comes from, so any help is welcome ... (^_~) ...

by the way ... Minami Ozaki made over a hundred Captain Tsubasa Doujinshi ... most of them with Kojiro Hyuga and Ken Wakashimatsu, but also some with Genzo Wakabayashi (like in the 4 Doujinshi pages I own) ... that's why I decided to buy a Cel of each character Minami Ozaki used for her Doujinshi too ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^) ...

that was really fast ... (O.o) ... bought on November the 7th and delivered today ...

Takuto looks so great ... I can feel his pain while looking at him ... (^_~) ...

and it is signed by Minami Ozaki herself ... amazingly the signature has the same date on it like my other signed Bronze Cel ... seems to be a day full of signatures the 1997-03-02 ... poor Minami-sama ... *g* ...

but one thing is different ... my first Bronze Cel has an extra layer for the signature ... this one is signed directly on the Cel ... strange ...

WishCels ...

Hey yo @ll ... (^_^) ...

I made a new category ... (^_^) ... because of a thread on Anime-Beta ... "Cel you wish you could steal from someone's gallery" ...
I hope every owner is ok with that ... of course I put a link to the owner under every Cel ... (^_^) ...

they are all so great Cels, I probably never will call my own ... (-.-) ... it's too sad ... but I love looking at them so much ...

last modified: Sunday, July 17, 2005 (6:04:16 AM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^) ...

the Bronze Cel (bought on May 12th) is finally on its trip to Germany ... so "only" two more months until it'll arrive ...
let's hope, that the ship will not go down or my beloved german customs office will grab it or nothing else bad will happen ...

I believe, that it's not meant for me ... (-.-) ... so many problems ... *begging for a happy end* ...

New Gallery Structure ...
last modified: Wednesday, May 25, 2005 (9:31:18 AM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^) ...

I changed my Gallery-structure ... I separated the Cels from their douga, because now my collection contains a sketch without the Cel and an other Cel without it's sketch ...
but to keep the connection between Cels and their Douga I put a link under each picture ...
I hope it's not to unclear now ... (^_~) ...

FanCels for Sale???
last modified: Saturday, April 09, 2005 (5:14:20 AM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^) ...

after getting the new acryl-colors I tried some more FanCels last week ... I used some of my favourite PokÚmon ... (^_^) ... so I painted Pichu and Evoli (which is called Eevee in the english version, when I remember right) ... I also painting a FanCel of Son Gohan, but it's not ready yet ... but the Douga of it is finished ... I put them all on deviantART ...
(http://zetsu-ai.deviantart.com/gallery) FanCels and (http://zetsu-ai.deviantart.com/scraps) FanDouga ... I won't put them here on Rubberslug, cause the motives are not from Zetsuai ... and this is a Zetsuai-Gallery ... another reason is that I wan't to try to sale them on eBay to earn a little money for my Japan-trip in september ... (^_^) ...

I hate german customs offices ...
last modified: Friday, April 08, 2005 (1:22:16 PM CST)
Hey yo @ll ... (^_^) ...

I know that I had mentioned it before ... but I really hate german customs offices ... *walking angry around* ...
today I got another bad news from german bureaucracy ... a nice little green card (I also hate green!!!) with the request to fetch the Cel package and pay some custom duties for it ...
it's the third time now that I have to drive two hours at the other end of my town, although there is a customs office behind my house ... but no!!! they can't send it to this customs office ... but they could take the package and send ist three towns further to give it a stamp there and than send it back to my house with some more duties for this little "voyage round the world" ...

but now it's weekend and so I can't fetch it until monday ... two more days my two poor cels have to sit sadly in the package and no one can haer their cries ... (-.-) ...

so please keep your fingers crossed for my cels that they will survive this martyrization ...
