I’ve been seeing some images floating around of pokemon as animal crossing villagers, and I thought it was pretty adorable, so I decided to do some of my own with a few of my personal favorite pokemon!  I love Doublade too, but I couldn’t figure out how to make that into a villager because… well, you know.

Guide to Self-Studying Japanese
A large proportion of Japanese learners self-study. Finding places to learn Japanese in a classroom environment can be difficult and expensive. Here’s a guide on how you can learn Japanese for free and from the comfort of your sofa.

When learning Japanese, the most important step is to learn Hiragana and Katakana, the writing alphabets of Japanese.
The best way I’ve found to do that is to make flashcards. Make sure you practice writing as well as recognizing them, this will not only be a great skill to have but will also reinforce the shapes in your mind.
Resources:
[Hiragana 42], the best guide I’ve found to learn the Hiragana (in a day!)[Hiranana and Katakana Quiz Site][Kana Invaders Game][Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Vocabulary….

The next step is to start learning vocabulary. Where can you find what to learn? Use a site like Memrise to find word lists (for example, there is a word list for all the vocabulary in starter textbooks like Genki), and use the amazing interface to learn them and keep them in your long term memory.
Resources:
[Memrise] as mentioned above to find and learn vocabulary lists.[Most Common Words List][Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….

While encountering vocabulary, you’re likely to be coming across super-complicated-looking Kanji. You can learn Kanji through Memrise as above, but there are some other websites that may be of interest.
Resources:
[Kanji Damage] A great site where you can learn Kanji through Mnemonics.[WaniKani] by the same people ho make TextFugu (below) can help you learn Kanji from scratch.[Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….

The next step is to apply that new vocabulary to grammar points and start making sentences.
If you can’t get your hands on textbooks like Genki, don’t fear! There are a lot of great online grammar resources.
Resources:
[TextFugu] a highly rated ‘online textbook’ which will guide you right from the beginning of learning Japanese.[Guide to Japanese] another online textbook with a lot of grammar points and excellent explanations.

The Fun Parts: Using Japanese Online Media
So you probably have learnt Japanese because you have some interest in Japanese media. Time to start using it to your learning advantage!
Aside from the obvious watching Anime, J-dramas and films, why not try Reading Japanese News? Watching Japanese TV? Just make sure you are making these activities productive - note down new vocabulary, add them to Anki, and keep learning! It’s much easier to learn things you’re interested in. Try translating Japanese songs, etc.

The most important but difficult part of self-studying Japanese is getting your own compositions checked. Utilize all that grammar and vocabulary and write a short piece, it could be a diary entry or a short essay. Get it recorded for you by a native on RhinoSpike, and checked for grammar and consistencies on Lang-8.These sites also give you the chance to connect with Japanese natives, and perhaps start up some language exchanges!

Fungus girls!
I originally planned to just keep them sketchy like this but shortly after drawing the last one I decided I wanted to fully color them which makes this outline step a complete waste of time ugh. So I thought I’d upload them here. Expect to see the glossy finished version of all these soon :D

They are: Bleeding Tooth, Rosy Veincap, Veiled Lady, Inky Cap, Sea Anemone, Red Cage, Morel, Amethyst Deceiver

Wow I didn’t realize how much I missed this song until I heard it once again.

i noticed. they slowly got rid of the game corner by making it less fun. then it just was gone from the newer games.

I didn’t of course draw this or anything (it’s an Imai Kira artwork). But I did scan this whole calendar and it’s a shame that this image is going around by itself, sourceless. You can find the rest of the iPhone 5 backgrounds to match this one over at my blog:http://kiwivanilla.blogspot.com.ar/2013/06/lolita-iphone-backgrounds-now-for.htmlEnjoy. And please don’t reblog sourceless posts!
