It's taking me long enough, I know...  
I missed my golden combination last night. A lot. I'm pretty much done crying about the future of my troupe, but the melodrama has been replaced by a kind of dull pessimism about how the company treats Soragumi in general.

Am I just looking at the past through rose-colored glasses, or was everything just better in the glory days of TakaHana?

Anyway, what this is leading up to is the announcement that I'm finally back to editing my NSG script. I know I shouldn't have let it wait this long, but in some ways putting it down for almost a year was a good thing. Not looking at it for a while made it easier to come back and make firm decisions on some of the wording I couldn't make up my mind about, correct stupid mistakes and catch things I'd missed.

That's not to say I've gotten all the wording down yet, though. After I finish this preliminary edit, it's being handed off to the wife / TIP for more polishing.

But it's good to be moving toward finishing this, finally.

Er, not in terms of you being sad about soragumi, but this saves me from doing a lot of TIP nagging XD (A lot of people have been asking when NSG will be done)

...Well the question then becomes, why *haven't* you been bugging me about it? :P

Honestly? Because the last few "call to arms" haven't done much, and I was getting frustrated (and given that you were still making voice posts about a month or so ago, I didn't want to push you with your wrists).

As for TakaHana...to be honest, I haven't seen that many of their shows and really can't say. You may be 100% right, I wouldn't know.

But I wonder sometimes if we look at all OGs through if not rose-colored glasses, then at least the glasses of perspective with time. We know the outcomes of things, so we know that (for example) Hotel Stella Maris was most certainly not the signal for the end of TakaHana. And when thinking about the past there also isn't the anxiety about announcements, since we already know the outcome of everything.

Anyway, just my two cents.

It certainly seems that way to me.

I think things really were better back then. I love Soragumi, but their shows really haven't been consistently *good* since like the middle of the Takahana reign. Every time I go back to do translations or clips I keep thinking how much I wish I could have been a fan like 2002-2004, instead of now.

But yay, translations. <3 I keep meaning to ask you for a copy of what you have since I may eventually be bored enough to write that Aguilar/Teresa fic I keep threatening to.

...If giving you my script means you writing Aguilar x Teresa fic, then I an NEVER giving it to you. XDD;;;

well, you are not othe only one who has that feeling about Sora. maybe no one could ever replace the Golden Combi...=/


NSG script? can't wait to read it. ^_~

I think it's easy to feel that way right now especially, but I can't say I disagree really. And maybe on some level it's unrealistic to expect it to be that way forever. *shrugs* I definitely know what you mean though.

I would just like some stability in the ranks and some focus on Sora. The Powerful Ones should really work on the existing material and create a "Troupe" sense again. Lately it felt like Sora was a puzzle of too many personalities not really blending together, therefore lacking that coherence that fostered the troupe identity of the old days.
Maybe I'm still recovering from the shock after the retirements bleeding my personal list has suffered recently. But I'm happy to read I'm not the only one getting this blues.

About the NSG script. The mere idea sparks evil Italian subbing thoughts in my head....*must finish Phantom*
