Hi, I'm Akeyami! I'm 23 and a grad school student.

Here you will find many different things that I'm into. Such things include:

- Art

- Music

- Manga and Anime

- Books, TV shows and Films

- Video games

- Daisuke Asakura and AXS

(as well as the DA Family)

- People, culture and style (especially from Japan and Europe)

....So basically everything ^^;

I love meeting new people who share my interests, so please don't hesitate to send me a message! I also make personal posts from time to time, usually tagged with "ake!personal" or "ake!happenings".

そして、私は日本語を少しだけ話します。勉強していますよ!よろしくお願いします!(ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

daisuke-asakura:

do access fans actually have a name?

or are they known just as “access fans”?

are DA and Hiro fans called Smile and The Sun? or are those names strictly reserved for fanclub members?

"Smile" is just the name of DA’s official fan club, as is "THE SUN" for Hiro. I have never heard that fans are actually referred to by these designations individually.

In 2012 access started promoting the hell out of “cluster” as a term for their collective fans. In Japan, if you bought all three versions of Secret Cluster, you could get a voucher to receive a membership card for the “access cluster”. Some fans have referred to the AXS fandom as the cluster since then, but DA and Hiro haven’t used it much themselves since. I like to refer to the fandom in this way, especially our side of it as the “international cluster”.

I think at one point the term “DA Family” was also used inclusively for fans of DA, but now it seems to really be more of a designation for his professional associates/productions (AXS, TMR, Iceman, and etc…..).

Long story short I don’t know of any individual term for AXS/DA fans. I would be a member of all the fan clubs if I could, but you have to live in Japan (a constant source of irritation!!).

You're the one that doesn't understand. It's you who cares about all that! I'm not you!

I haven’t seen the episode yet but from this alone I am really scared

TIPS:
Remember that today’s day in age is different from how it was back then. So don’t stress about school too much.High school students today have the anxiety of what a mental patient in the insane asylum had in the 50s. Here’s also a thing to show how times have changed.
Prioritize. List what needs to get done first and when. Sometimes getting the bigger/harder tasks is easier than conquering the smaller/easier tasks.
Set times when certain projects need to be done and stick to that deadline.
Turn your phone off or give it to your parents while doing work/studying. I know that we live in the age of technology and literally everything is at the touch of our fingertips. Honestly though you can wait on what your favorite celebrity has to say or if your crush liked your instagram photo. You’ll be more involved in that than you are into your work.
If you have trouble in a certain subject and there is no assigned seating, take advantage of the front. I guarantee you’ll learn more.
Ask your teacher what exactly you’ll need to know. If you’re taking notes during the year, write in the margins whether or not it will be tested. It will be easier to know what you will be tested on.
Save your exams. Half the time your teachers use the same questions (or questions similar) from your exams on your midterms or finals.
Don’t try to do homework straight afterschool if you can’t, despite what everyone says. Give yourself an hour, and try to get some exercise in. I find it stops me getting bored of sitting down. Not to mention helps me concentrate better.
Don’t just read the material, write it, draw it, recite it, quiz yourself on it! Until you have the material down.
Join clubs, sports, or organizations! You’re guaranteed to find friends in there. You’ll already have common interests. Start with that and go with the flow.
College kids: If you don’t have assigned seating, and you have been sitting in the same seat for 2 weeks. That is you assigned seat now. Don’t move or you’ll screw everyone up and they will hate you.
Color code things, such as your notes. If you want to see how I color code my notes message me and I’ll be happy to show you. 
Be kind to one another.
I think that about does it. So yeah:)

Here’s my second print to go with my chocobo one… I didn’t get as much done this summer as I thought I would, but I think the stuff I did get to came out really well!

Okay crashmyheadnow tagged me, here’s five random facts about me: 

1. I’m a really picky eater. If I haven’t eaten something before, I will most likely be suspicious of it unless it a) looks okay b) smells okay and/or c) is comprised of things I already like. This has gotten better as I’ve gotten older, but there are still things that I will point-blank avoid, namely fish/seafood. 

2. I collect hairbows! :D I have been for about a year now. My first one was a tiny little mint-colored one from Icing, and my latest is a cute aqua-colored one from Etsy, specifically a lovely little shop called JoJoBubblyBows!! My favorite bow is my big floppy red one from Forever21 <3

3. I am a certified SCUBA diver :D I love diving but I rarely get to anymore. I even got as far as my divemaster certification but it expired a few years ago. On a similar note, I swim a lot and have been able to (on teams or clubs, etc) for most of my life. 

4. My favorite place in St. Louis is Powell Symphony Hall <3 It has one of the best acoustics of the world’s greatest concert halls, and is simply gorgeous :D The St. Louis Symphony is also absolutely spectacular :D Today at rehearsal they had the main foyer’s huge chandeliers hung down low above the floor for cleaning, and I got to have a close look at them for the first time <3 super cool!
my pipe dream is to have Daichan and Hiro play there, and I also want to be proposed to there LOL

5. My family heritage is a mix of mostly German, then Polish and Irish. My mother thinks that our Polish lineage may also have been Jewish, but we’ve never really followed up on that ^^; Everyone up to and including my grandparents were born and raised in the USA so we’re thoroughly American now. We’re apparently related to the German-born John Peter Schmitt who built the Mackinaw lighthouse though *^^*

Okay that’s it for me!! I tag nimiustakkun, martheh, soulreciever, lmarj331 and uesugisensei to do this as well!! 

nimiustakkun:

Tadah!

Part 4 of BOOM, that is still mine and uesugisensei's fan comic about access, and also Takanori Nishikawa/T.M. Revolution, and well, with a cameo from Mizuki Nana.

You can read the previous parts for the first time, or again, either here on tumblr: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3; or at this nifty little web page: http://boom.smackjeeves.com, that you can find links to - whenever you for some reason want to look at BOOM again - on both mine and uesugisensei's blogs!

AHAHAHAHAA IT GOT EVEN BETTER HOLY MIZUKI NANA ARE YOU KIDDING AND SHE HITS ON DAICHAN LMFAOOOO isn’t she married xDD

LOOOOL Hiro having to walk to the lair oh GOD that entire sequence couldn’t have been more perfect I am DYING

I can totally believe that TMR would kidnap someone just to be able to wear those “evil” outfits!! And then DA agreeing with him STOP IT THIS IS TOO GOOD

EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS IT’S GENIUS
