Characters (Nanoha & Fate) from Lyical Nanoha, which was the first anime I consciously thought of as magical girl, even though I'd watched a few already. Oddly I looked it up and it's now hard to buy anywhere. I'm so glad I got it when I did!
I adore anime, and one of the genres I seem to like the most is the magical girls genre. It's usually about a girl/girls who have magical powers, have to save the world using the powers. I think there might be another part to that definition, but I can't quite remember.
Anyway, watching the genre has inspired the Doodle Girl series (temporary title as it isn't just about Doodle Girl) by my Muse. Learning about the different plot techniques (I think I'm making these terms up), costumes, powers, accessories etc, it is my duty to watch lots of magical girl anime. I managed to collate the notes I had in my emails/messages into one document this morning, I figured out a few other bits too, but then I didn't feel so great, so this morning I watched more of the magical girls anime Cardcaptor Sakura.
It's so awesome!Sakura's friend Tomoya creates new outfits for each adventure. I'm seeing the pattern of having a wand/batton which can collect the item in question which needs finding. It's also great fun. I then moved on to Robin Hood. Tonight will be Winx and a new TV drama. I've done some crochet too, which has been fun.
No reading today :( but that's ok. Anime isjust a moving book, after all. ^o^
I've got a full week of work this week, but will fit writing in as often as I can. Writing comes first now :) I don'tget a choice, not with my Muse.
Anyway, I hope you've had something that made you smile today.
