Tidbits

Let’s start with Ohkawa’s latest post of her Private Board where she reveals the songs she’s listening to while writing the Celes arc.


BGM

Tsubasa.

After going to Celes country, the BGM* has been mainly 2.

The one I had decided beforehand**, “Atashi to Waltz wo” (Chihiro Onitsuka-san).

Ever since it was released on March of this year, I intended to write the script of Celes while listening to it, “Universe” (Maaya Sakamoto-san).

Even now I’m listening to it.

There’s still a little for the light.
There’s still a little.

———————————

BGM

『ツバサ』。

セレス国に行ってからのBGMは、主に2つ。

前々から決めていたのは、
「私とワルツを」(鬼束ちひろさん)。

今年3月に発売されてから、セレスに入ったら聞きながら原作を書こうと思っていた、
「ユニバース」(坂本真綾さん)。

今も聞いてます。

光までもうちょっと。
もうちょっと。

———————————

Notes:

* – BGM means “BackGround Music”, in case anyone doesn’t know, but I guess everybody does X3
** – Here‘s the post where she says that she has decided the song for Fye’s story.
I apologize for any possible mistakes, I translated it myself ^^”

And for those interested, I searched these songs down:

Atashi to Waltz wo | Lyrics
Universe | Lyrics

The lyrics of “Atashi to Waltz wo” are so sad!

don’t do such a thing as dancing alone
so that you wouldn’t hurt anyone. Instead,
please waltz with me.

So like Fye, isn’t it?

XXXHOLiC game updates:

The official website for the XXXHOLiC game for PS2 has been updated. The most interesting update is that we can finally see the Promotional Video and the CM for the game in the Special section.

The videos are short but it’s worth checking for those interested in buying it.

Ah, for the Doumeki/Watanuki fangirls, make sure to check the Story section xD

You can find more pictures from the game in this link (thank you, tensaitsu!).

The game will be released on August 9th.

Speaking of XXXHOLiC, I would like to make an open request, not sure if I’ll be corresponded XD canon_4_life-san and other people asked me if I could find someone willing to make a transcript of the XXXHOLiC Drama CD. If anyone is interested, the link to download the CD can be found here. Any help is highly appreciated!

‘Featuring Chibi Yuuto’, HA-HA-HA !

moko_ko_nyanko-chan told me once that she wanted to interview me, at first I found it weird but then I was all “sure, why not? xD”. An interview is like a big meme made only for you, and since I love doing memes, I had a great time doing it! xD

She asked me questions about my LiveJournal, CLAMP and other personal issues. If you wish to read it, the interview is here. Thanks for the caring, Moko-chan!

    • It seems like Onitsuka Chihiro and Maaya Sakamoto are the official singers for Tsubasa ^^ Ohkawa had listened to “Sign” (Chihiro) to write a chapter of the Hanshin arc and “Spika” (Maaya) to write one of the Tokyo arc X3

      The Brazilian edition will be released on November, but EVEN if it were released on July, I would still buy the english version, it’s SO much better to read it in english X33 And it’s quite an easy reading, if I can do it, you can! XD

  2. Também quero DH 😦 Acho que vou comprar em inglês.

    Vc já leu o MST de HBP feito num LJ? Um cara que não gosta de Harry Potter leu HBP e comentou capítulo por capítulo, dando uma nota no final de cada um. Ele é bem sarcástico, mas a coisa toda é hilariante, e vale muito a pena ler. Se ele está numa parte chata, ele insere personagens de Dragon Ball, Transformers, Lanterna Verde e faz uma tremenda maluquice. O legal é que, mesmo não gostando de HP, ele admite se gostou de uma parte ou se achou uma cena bem escrita. Ele mete bronca na crítica, mas é bem gente fina.

    Mais recentemente ele também fez a mesma coisa com Prisioneiro de Azkaban e Pedra Filosofal XD esses dois se saíram bem piores no conceito dele…

  3. Ahhhh XDD I’ve laughed so much reading your answers XD You should do memes more often ;D And woo, I was tagged! I hadn’t been tagged in ages XD; I’ll do it tomorrow, then ^-^

    Also, I read the interview! XD That was fun, and I can’t believe I was here when the “Room of Requirement” got its name XD Plus, I think you’d be Griffindor XD

    Those were dark times xD
    I feel the HP vibes everywhere~ XDD

    Also, yes we want Deathly Hallows NOW NOW NOW! All my friends have already pre-bought their copy, we are waiting with high anticipation x3

    Read the meme and,
    you barely speak English?? O___O ooh, but you have no problems in writting English right (you wrote most in English !)
    but wait, barely speak English doesn’t mean u’re not good in english speaking, right? *shoot self*

  7. Thank you for searching out the 2 songs, they’re really nice. Atashi to Waltz wo is rather sad.. It practically screamed “Fai” at me too.. Universe even though also sounded a bit sad, I feel that there is a bit of a hopeful tune embedded in it.. Maybe it’s just me hoping for a happy ending for Fai =P

    I really hope someone will respond to make a transcript for Holic =)

    The interview is interesting!

    Even though I’m more of a KuroFai fangirl now, it’s cos’ of S/S that I started reading Tsubasa, I hope that they too will have a happy ending like in CCS.

    I agree about Ohkawa-sensei.. Even though I do complain about Fai’s suffering, it’s amazing that CLAMP can always come up with surprises in the chapters. I don’t know what to expect and it’s interesting like that. Sometimes, I think that by the end of Tsubasa, I’ll enjoy rereading the series cos’ it’s been such a ride, full of ups and downs. It’s really like real life, isn’t it?

    Thank you for your hard work in Room of Requirement and Chibi-Yuuto’s Chronicles! The updates on your LJ has been especially helpful to me (with news, links and more) and I appreciate them =D

    I hope X will return soon too.. Followed by Gouhou Drug =)

    And it’s really shocking for me knowing you have no phone! In fact, it’s hard for me to imagine nowadays people living without phone…
