Five requested by [ profile] gnine!

Oh, man, I swear there was some sort of backstory to this, but now I can't track it down. I looked through my entire series of 2005 journal entries (because I know I picked it up sometime during that year), but to no avail. I thought the lettering on it had been done by [ profile] spacealien_vamp, like so many of my icons, but since I didn't credit her on my icon page, maybe I'm misremembering? Anyway, I adore this icon, and it so often sums up all my feelings about Japanese. No cookie for you, Japanese! For anyone who doesn't know, the character means "bad."

Kimi ni Todoke! (That's Kazehaya being adorable, as Kazehaya always is.) Oh, you must watch the anime and/or read the manga if you don't know about this lovely shoujo series. The anime is complete; the manga is still running, though I think it's nearing an end - I just picked up vol. 20 in Japan. My favorite icon when encouragement is needed (either for someone else or for myself).

Ahaha, the finale to season 2 of Chuck! I actually can't remember all the details of the climax (way overdue for a re-watch), but it's a wedding (Chuck's sister) that goes hideously, horribly wrong when Chuck's secret spy life somehow intersects with Chuck's dorky BuyMore colleagues who were recruited to perform at the wedding in their dreadful amateur band. I wish I could find more opportunities to use this icon.

One of my several Odoru icons, all by the talented [ profile] spacealien_vamp. I don't get to reference Odoru often enough (and how often otherwise does one want to post about stalking or strip shows?), but I've been on an Odoru rewatch kick just lately, as part of my campaign to do more listening practice. Just such a fun TV series.

One of [ profile] spacealien_vamp's best. From the halcyon [ profile] g_defend community days. I'm always on the lookout for a chance to use it, and sometimes I even find one. I love Ishikawa's clueless face.

Have been back from Japan just over a week, am back in CT trying to console three resentful abandoned cats, and slowly recovering from the usual jet lag from hell. I owe all kinds of catch-up posts, including a trip report, but in the meantime, have a meme from [ profile] firesign10:

1. Reply to this post and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Five chosen by [ profile] firesign10 (who cleverly managed to pick all the ones I never get to use, so now I can talk about why I have them in the first place):

Scanned from a volume of Ryuu no Yuigon, a sadly underappreciated manga, because I thought the picture of the mushi freaking out was hilarious. It's a dragon story from a fantasy universe, and the mushi are little... random cute pet-critters, which I think I once described as a rabbit crossed with a marshmallow. One of two icons I use to express SHOCK!

From One Piece, as are approximately half my icons. Luffy as a little kid refusing to listen to... something, I don't remember what. I wish I had more opportunities to use this, but how often do you want to comment with an icon that says "lalala not listening"?

I love this cartoon-icon of chibi John and Rodney from Stargate Atlantis which I snagged from fellow SGA fan [ profile] pentapus, and it makes me sad that I hardly ever have reason to use it any more. It just captures their personalities so beautifully - John goofing around, and Rodney, oh-so-serious.

One Piece again - Luffy chewing on Jinbei because he's mad about something. A monument to failed html! The story behind this one was, I wanted to make an animated gif icon from an absolutely hilarious animated gif a fellow fan created, but I never managed to make the animation work, and just left it as a single image, which I rarely have reason to use. It makes me smile every time I look at it, though, since I can just hear Jinbei roaring "I'm not fish food, Luffy!"

I used to be able to use this a lot more back when I was doing Fujimi summaries (ignore the adult content warning, I should really disable that since the site is about as offensive as sparkle ponies). It's a scan from the cover of one of the drama CDs, showing Kei and Yuuki as stuffed animals (a dog and a rabbit - Yuuki is the rabbit) kissing. I love Fujimi, you guys.
