Merry Christmas!!

@Ahiku holy **** you have a lot of youtube subscribers! I happened to click to open it in a new tab instead of watching the embedded version... (I have 8 subscribers lolol) Also I think your vocal range is nearly an octave above mine. I'm like... a mezzo alto. I can sing tenor parts to songs.

Also gross KFC things for Christmas (because we all want to know more about how nasty it all is on this lovely day) I think just about everything in frozen beforehand. They take out the chicken from the freezer in giant bags, heat it up, bread it, and deep fry it. I think even the breads are frozen beforehand. Basically they have everything that they can in the freezer so it won't go bad. I think I blocked some of the grossest parts of my sister's stories out of my memories... Just HOW the things are made are gross, I just don't remember all the details.

But... bakeries are great! I worked at a bakery and it was actually not gross (except the dishes always were kinda greasy from years of butter, I got in trouble the one day I was assigned to cleaning because I took way too long on each dish). But everything we made was fresh that day (or was otherwise marked as discounted stuff and that was only up to a few days with pastries and cookies). We only sold at farmers markets, which kind of made it easier to clean and start over. We'd give a bunch of our leftover food to this one family that had a lot of adopted and foster children, which was definitely better than throwing it away.  And then later I was a baker at a coffee shop and that was fun. I felt like Karan making all those tasty cookies and scones.

@Weisel
Oh yeah... o.o But I don't notice that there are so many, they don't write many comments. Well, my famous Youtube days are long over, haha. X'D I used to be very active in the German fandub scene. But since I also got some professional voice acting jobs this year, I have to retreat a bit from fandubbing. The studios don't like that and I would like to get more jobs in the future. :D I hope I can apply for some studios in my region next year. I hope my vocal pipes are better then. They were horribly inflamed and I still have trouble. ;_; (I was hoarse after singing that stupid Christmas song and the higher notes were hard to catch. I failed so much... but well, I'm just an amateur singer, so it's okay. XDDD)
Btw. my mom worked as a singer in an opera choir. She had an alto voice and could also sing tenor parts. My grandma has a very deep voice as well. X'D They always made fun of me because I have a high voice. (It was much worse when I was younger. I sounded just sooo incredibly like a child... haha XD But now I just use it. I can give my voice to MOE characters like Kate Hoshimiya :D
https://www.anime-on-demand.de/system/episodes/trailers/000/001/659/original/e673a139272c9c6ee0a0d14b5c6fbe36e5c67d26.mp4?1435786877 
(I dunno if this works... ^^)

Ewww, that doesn't sound pretty good, but I guess it's normal that they freeze everything in chains. ^^ Especially the meat needs to be frozen... o.o It's better than NOT being frozen. XD
And yet, the thought is not very appetizing.

Yeah, bakeries are great. XD But I'd also like to have some other possibilities and not just 3000 different bakeries. There are also a lot of differences. The self-service bakeries are kinda cheap and the stuff you can buy there is not as good as the stuff you can buy in a normal bakery. ^^ Then we also have "bakeries" in super markets. They have the cheapest stuff, but it's also not that great.
Oh, btw. we have sooo many different kinds of breads in Germany. X'D I guess...bread is very important to German people. (That's probably right...I don't eat much bread, but when I was in Japan, I really missed it. o_O They just had super shitty white bread. And why are the slices so thick? That's horrible. XD Why don't they use grains and seeds ;_;)

@Ahiku Woah! You're pretty dang good at voice acting! Also I remember mentioning that I was learning German back when the forum started (though I've put that on hold since my memory's been bad, maybe I'll pick that up again soon) but I understood some of the dialogue, which makes me feel a little better!

Also I just remembered I was talking to my friend about this the other day, but I was asking if I had a deep voice for a girl and we agreed that my tone is girly but the pitch I speak at is lower. So I'm stuck sounding weirdly girly with a low voice. I don't think that voice fits anyone pffffft.

I think I'm the only one in my family who sang much (everyone else plays instruments only) and I remember when my older sister wanted to try out for the school musical she had me try to coach her on her audition. It was awful, like she could sing the notes but her tone was super nasally and I couldn't seem to get her to sing from further back in her throat, plus she sort of slid to notes like an annoying pop star or something. ...She didn't make it to callbacks. I failed as a teacher lol. I'm not even a good singer, I just knew how to sing properly for choir.

As for bakeries, we have bakeries in grocery stores as well and it's actually pretty rare to have bakeries around like Karan's bakery where it's just breads and pastries. The only ones I've seen around (though I haven't been in cities much) are specialty ones, like cake decorators or gluten free bakeries. The bakery I used to work at shut down a couple years back. Any other bakeries have to have a sort of gimmick like being all organic or whatever. Even our competitor bakery back a few years had to start making fancy pizzas to keep customers coming. Bread isn't a big deal in the United States. Most of it is pretty mediocre. Though now I can't actually eat bread because I figured out I have a gluten intolerance and I do miss bread a bit. Gluten free bread tends to be really dry and crumbly. I don't bake anymore because I either can't eat what I make or it just turns out crappy. (Also I miss beer. A lot. I love beer.)

I have to think back to what breads we had at the bakery, just because we had a nice selection. I'd usually buy one of our mini loaves from the leftover dough and eat it during my shift. I actually had this tactic of eating anything that wasn't selling well so people would want to try it when they passed by. It always worked! We had... white, whole wheat, dill, cranberry orange, apple oat, french (three kinds, white, whole wheat, and herb), challah, st. john's, uh... I might be missing a few. And then we had zucchini cheddar rolls and pesto rolls and english muffins (I could totally live off the pesto rolls and english muffins), and then we had a bunch of cookies and pastries.

...Okay, I think I got a little excited about bread. Apparently I miss it more than I thought.

@Weisel
Thanks. :D That's btw the offical German dub of Sekai Seifuku and that little girl is my first lead role.
Oh, but I have more than 7 years of fandub experience. That helps. ^^ Even though you can't really compare fandubbing and real voice acting. It's a bit more difficult. :3
Oh, it's btw. really good that you could understand a bit. I mean they are talking pretty fast. I can imagine it's not really easy to follow them.

So...that means you have a low, but yet girly voice? X'D But it's good to have a unique voice. ^^

Oh, btw... do you think Nezumi is a countertenor?

Aww, no, you didn't fail as a teacher... XD Your sister just didn't want to learn. ^^ My mom also tried to teach me once. She taught singing professionally when she was younger, but somehow she failed to teach me. Neither of us could stay serious and I just ended up laughing and cackling like an idiot as she tried to teach me how to breath properly. Or when I had to do voice exercises... x,x I wish I had learned better back then.

Oh, too bad you have a gluten intolerance ... I can imagine that you miss bread. x.x That's a pretty terrible intolerance. (I understand it a bit - I have a sorbit intolerance. I'm still lucky, since I consider it as the less annoying intolerance, but I still need to be careful with some things... and I have to read ingredient lists carefully... since that stuff is not just proclaimed as sorbit, but also as E whatever... or it's in fruits...when they use certain juices or dried fruits it's also bad. x,x They use apple juice for a lot of things...that sucks. XD)
Toothpaste and mouthwash is also criminal. (Even though you don't swallow it... x.x I just can't use normal stuff or I'm going to react.) Buut, I guess you know stuff like that... o_o (I doubt you have just a gluten intolerance, huh? Most of the time, people tend to have several intolerances at the same time. x_x) When they tested me, there was also an elderly women and she had almost everything... XD Lactose, fructose, gluten, sorbit... I guess there's not much left she can eat.

Oh, these kinds of bread sound very interesting. ^^ Here, they don't have different flavors like orange or whatever... but we use very different grains and seeds, for example sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds etc.  Pumpkin seeds... all kinds of seeds... multigrain...farmer bread... they are on top of different colored buns, depending on the flour they are using. Wheat or rye etc. Oh we also have potato buns, milk buns...milk buns with raisins, or wheat buns with different toppings (seeds, cheese, sea salt flakes, caraway seeds)... and the buns are soft inside and crispy outside, apart from milk buns, but I hate them, they are soft and disgusting. X'D  Oh, the same with normal bread loaves... they also sell baguettes and pretzel rolls. And different kinds of cakes and pastries. Croissants with and without chocolate...Sponge cake, chocolate cake, cheese cake, cakes with fruits, pastries and deep-fried stuff, cookies... and also some sandwiches. Ah yeah and coffee to go. That's the normal assortment of a bakery. XD They don't need to sell special stuff. Oh, but the assortment is slightly different each day.

I remember that a Japanese friend was kinda traumatized after visiting a bakery because he couldn't decide what he wanted to eat. X'D So he left without food...

@Ahiku Dang, good job on your first lead! Voice acting seems like a lot of fun, even if it is hard work. I guess that's how any kind performance is though, right?

I'm not really sure how to describe my voice other than "low yet girly" so here's one of my stupid cosplay Christmas videos. (Don't feel like you have to watch much of it, it's just to get a sample of my voice.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdHXIL538aI

And yes, I think Nezumi would be a countertenor. I had to look up exactly what that was, but yes, that's it exactly. He's definitely got a higher voice in the novels than is portrayed in the anime. Sorry, Hosoya, you can't sound like a woman...

Intolerances and allergies just all suck in general. At least the whole gluten thing is becoming more well known so a lot of things are marked as being gluten free. I'm also lactose intolerant, but it's not bad since cutting out gluten (I can get away with eating lactose without any bad side effects, I think it was just too much for my system to handle after dealing with the gluten thing). I remember when I was really young I'd get horrible stomach cramps every night because my mom made me drink a big glass of milk with dinner every night. My parents thought I was being whiny over nothing until after about four years of this, and then my mom finally took me to the doctor and they figured out really fast that I was lactose intolerant. It's a super easy fix, though. There are pills to help with that. You just eat one right before eating dairy and everything is totally fine. It's too bad there's nothing like that for gluten. I'd totally get pills just to eat a load of soft pretzels.

Also I don't think there are usually breads for sale with fruit in them at grocery store bakeries (aside from cinnamon raisin bread), the bakery I worked at had a lot of original recipes. Apple oat bread makes some amazing french toast, though. I don't think I've seen any breads like those in the grocery store bakeries though, even the more "normal" ones. Like... I think most grocery store bakeries have things like white and wheat loaves of bread, then a bunch of different sandwich rolls, some pastries and cookies, and a fair amount of donuts. At least being gluten intolerant made me stop my bad donut eating habit. They're just so damn good...

Also I totally get overwhelmed at coffee shops when I try to order a drink. There are so many things... Though I don't drink coffee anymore just because the caffeine makes me feel sick. (Jeez, what CAN I eat without feeling bad? Maybe just fruits and veggies... Rice noodles...)

Thanks :D Oh, maybe I'm lucky next year... today a friend of mine messaged me and told me she's going to work in a dub studio soon and she told me she's in a position where she can make suggestions. She knows my voice pretty well, since we made fandubs together for 7 years. So maybe they have something for me in the future. :3
(But it's also kinda sad...that relationships are so important in this business. Or...well, almost in every creative business. x.x In 2014 I got to illustrate and write an e-book for older kids thanks to another friend who was a fandubber in our group back then. I'm always so thrilled and overly happy when they think of me. ;_;

Oh, that video doesn't want to load. ;_; But I remembered that I've heard your voice before... You have uploaded some audio data on your blog a while ago...something with Nezumi and SHion and driving. But I didn't think that your voice was thaaaat low... ^^ I thought it was quite normal and nice. ^^
(A girl who used to be in our group sounds pretty androgynous... one time we made a group fancover of a song and I was like. O_o "Who's the young boy singing this part - oh it's Sally, forget it." She really sounds like a 12-year old. XD
(Back then we also had a girl who sounded exactly like the official German VA of Ash Ketchum... X'D We made some Pokemon dubs together...but they all got deleted. x.x I was Pikachu. (I'm a gooood Pikachu :P Here: http://ahikusblog.tumblr.com/post/100098351107/listenforthelove-replied-to-your-post-animeabcp    I recorded this years ago for listenforthelove :D)

Yeah, Hosoya doesn't sound like a woman at all. x.x
I mean, his voice is cool, but the more I think about it, the less he's fitting for Nezumi. Okay, maybe for anime Nezumi, but definitely not for novel Nezumi. Even Kaji would be a better Nezumi. X'D
He's also angry enough.

Btw. I expect Nezumi to be able to to something like that:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNvH-lovShI

XD Ok...I think Nezumi's timbre is different, but his voice range should be very similar to this guy's...
(Lol Imagine a Hipster Nezumi who's uploading these kinds of Youtube videos...and Shion is his biggest fan! XD)

Oh yeah, right...lactose intolerance is still good to handle with lactase pills and lactose free products... There are a lot of them nowadays. Oh, I can't drink milk, not even lactose free milk and don't know why. XD It's a bit weird. (Everything else made with milk is not a problem... even the doctors said it's weird... but I'm in pain right after drinking it, so I leave it be. ^^)
It's horrible that your parents forced you to drink milk although you were not feeling well afterwards. D:  (Well, I experienced the same... XD  I still could drink it when I was small, though. But especially hot milk make me feel really nauseous. I even threw up because of it ^^)
Yuck. But gluten intolerance must be really horrible... (and fructose...I guess that's one of the worst, because it also includes sorbit... x.x)
A friend of mine also has a lot of intolerances. Almost everything. Gluten, histamine, lactose, fructose...There are not many things left she can eat. She's super skinny and all people think she's anorexic and has eating disorders... x.x I feel so sorry for her. She's also always sick, because her immune system is super crappy.
It's really horrible...
Oh, I've heard some people are even allergic to water. o_O I guess you can just kill yourself then.

Meopat: Well i don't know I have really mixed feelings for that game. I rather liked first Xenoblade better. This one is strange. I liked a lott every Xeno game until now but that's one... well I don't know, I only like some part of it but there is not much of them.

Well my beta tester answered, but It's after holidays already I my Christmas arc got delay XD I was going to post it and finish it like month ago XD? Oh well it's not like I'm doing it on time but I didn't planed for those chapters to be write/post in this time, it's like with first ver of Shion's birthday, I didn't planned it to happen in time of our 7th September.


Ahiku, you are good with lactose, I'm allergic to all that have potatoes inside and there is no pills for that. They use that damn thing to thickener almost every thing that now you can buy. It would be faster to say things I can eat instead of list what I can't eat :/ So I know that pain. Such things like McDonalds, KFC even normal yogurt are like taboo for me :/

@Reiko
Ah, no, it's sorbit. XD Lactose is ok... I just throw up when I drink milk, but that has nothing to do with lactose. :3

Oh god, that sounds horrible. >_< I didn't know that you can be allergic to potatoes. And that they put this stuff in yogurt. o_o My grandma would kill herself, she even eats potatoes with tomato sauce instead of noodles. Yuck. My mom was allergic to almost everything... nuts, veggies, fruit, animal hair and all kinds of polls and grasses. But at least she could eat most veggies/fruits when they were cooked. I guess that doesn't work with your potato problem... (I mean who eats raw potatoes... x,x)
Intolerances are a bit different... it doesn't matter if the stuff is dried or cooked, you still shouldn't eat it. But yeah, I'm still very lucky with my sorbit problem. XD Even when I eat a package of apples, I just feel pretty sick for a while, but I won't die... x,x but when you're allergic, it can be really dangerous...you could get a shock.

Btw... is anyone here allergic to bees/wasps? o_o I've never been stung, but I react allergic to some mosquito bites (they get huge...at least 5-10 centimeters in diameter), that's why I'm kinda afraid of wasps. Don't wanna test it. >_< One of my teachers back in my graphic class was allergic. XD She told me where I can find her emergency set and how I have to give it to her, just in case... Apparently, I looked kinda reliable or something.

@Ahiku I also feel bad from drinking plain milk (I don't even like the taste so I just drink almond milk) but I don't think I've ever thrown up from it. Bleh.

Also I'm not sure if my audio posts from before really sounded quite like my normal voice... I don't remember which one you're talking about (I just remember the one about if Shion and Safu ever dated). But I do know I was laughing a lot in just about every audio thing I've recorded and my voice gets a bit higher when I'm laughing. My giggle is just a high pitched little "heeheehee!" Maybe I'll just record something later and upload it. Not laughing this time.

Nezumi would TOTALLY have a youtube channel for all his cover videos. He'd do covers of annoying pop songs he doesn't like just for the sake of showing up the original singers. He'd be petty like that. And Shion would be his #1 fan and leave lengthy comments about how amazing Nezumi is on every single one of his videos. ...I'm all for this AU.

As for bees, I don't THINK I'm allergic... I've only been stung once (on my toe) by a normal little bee, and that was fifteen years ago. I've thought about being a beekeeper (my dad and my best friend in high school are both beekeepers, that definitely influenced me) but maybe I'd change my mind if I was stung more often. For a long time I wanted to get a honeybee tattooed on the back of my neck, and then I watched No.6... And I want that tattoo even more lol. Everyone I've told that to thinks I'm messed up. (I don't even hate the wasps in No.6, they're magical goddess power wasps and it's not like they knowingly killed people, they just hatched... It was the scientist that was super **** up and put them inside people.) Okay, bees in general are really freaking cool. Not wasps in real life, though. Those things are mean. The No.6 wasps didn't even sting people, they just hatched and flew off. If only real wasps were that passive. Just... not the hatching out of people thing. I don't want real life wasps to do that. I just wish they'd fly off and leave people alone.

I saw the biggest wasps ever in Cuervo, New Mexico. It's a little ghost town outside of Santa Rosa (which is I think sixty miles east of Albuquerque if anyone cares) with several houses that are falling apart, a cemetery, and a well maintained church. I stopped there because my roommate at the time wanted to check it out, and then after a few minutes these enormous black wasps started flying around and I just got right back into my car. My roommate didn't care though, but he was super weird. He didn't get stung at least. Still, I was like "how is it possible for these things to be SO BIG..." (I just googled Cuervo NM to see if there was anything about the wasps or the church and I just found that last year there were some crimes there... It's hard to say if it's a gross prank or actually evidence of sexual offenses. Gross, people are so **** up.)

Happy belated Christmas/Holidays everyone!

It's been a while since I've been here. The past few months were pretty, how shall I put it, busy?

But since I've taken to rereading the No. 6 novels while I'm on the train, I remembered this place as well.

Congratulations on the voice acting lead Ahiku! That's awesome, you do have a great voice for that. I wish I could do something like that myself, but I have to admit, I wouldn't really dare trying. The height of anything I've done in the world of entertainment is playing in a handful of school and off school stage plays. I'm also not that confident in my voice, people keep telling me I have a calming voice, but that's about it and that's probably more of a behaviour thing. And once someone told me I'd have a good voice for a sex hotline. (I can't tell if that is a compliment or not?)

To the topic of bees/wasps I can add. I'm not highly allergic, but I probably have the potential to develop an allergy to wasps. The last time I was stung I nearly collapsed and my circulation was off for about two hours, I was really dizzy and unwell. And when I was stung in the foot as a kid... my foot was about twice it's normal size for a week. That's why I tend to try and stay away from wasps if I can. Or you know, just make sure all the 'entrances' in my clothes are shut and just... freeze and ask as calmly as possible that someone please remove the wasp from the room. Or I wait like that in a corner until I see where it is and can attack before it can sting me. (Attacking one is risky though, you've got to be sure to be able to get it, if you just swat at it and miss, you'll make it more aggressive.)
To find out you can ask a doctor for a test though. If there hadn't been any incidents though I'm not sure the insurance pays for it. But it'd probably be a scratch test. Where your skin gets lightly scratched (mostly on your forearm) and some allergens get applied over it and then they check for reactions.

Either way, if you turn out to be allergic it's certainly good to carry an epi pen and some antihistamins during summer. You wouldn't wanna end with an anaphylactic shock.

If you don't want to go for a test, you'll find out once you get stung. If that happens you best look out for how strong the swelling is and in case breathing suddenly gets very hard or you feel a swelling in your throat - that's an immediate emergency. (And it's not panic to make breathing hard it'll be swelling.)

I'm also really sorry to hear about all of your food allergies. As macabre as it sounds that really makes me appreciate that I have no such issues myself. My cousin is can't eat gluten either and they failed to diagnose her until she was almost 30 or already was 30. She always had digestive problems and her bones degenerated badly enough that one or two of her vertebrae caved in and she needed special surgery.
I've occasionally heard people talk about this as if it's just played up and some health nonesense, I hope you guys never encountered that. Because it can be grave and it's not funny or some funky lifestyle choice.

@Weisel
Omg o_o Have you ever heard of these Japanese giant hornets?
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/08/12/1407846092079_Image_galleryImage_Pic_shows_An_aggressive_h.JPG
They are extremely huge! I'd be so scared. ;_;


@Kai
Thank you :D Ah I'd see that sex hotline remark as a compliment. That means you have a very pleasant and sensual voice. ^^
Ah, btw my normal voice is of course not as high as Kate's voice and it doesn't that shrill. XD It's more... like here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm_mQDtPiA8

Oh god, that really sounds as if you're a bit allergic. o_o I hope you won't get stung again.
Apropos attacking... that reminds me of something. One day, there was a wasp in our bureau and some of my coworkers freaked out. X'D There are so many windows and we tried to get it out.
But it apparently rather wanted to stay inside. Well, we had a morning meeting then, and our team leaders explained some stuff, but no one listened to them, because we all looked at one of the guys, who stood in front of the wasp and tried to get it out with a piece of paper. He failed, though... so another guy went to the rescue and was like: "Ah come on, let me do it, loser." Then, he smashed the wasp with his bare hand. o_o

Your voice sounds very innocent and pure, it makes the story sound very beautiful. (It is a very nice story, too.) I think if I would have to read it, it would probably end up a lot darker and creepier.
I don't think I was ever cast for an innocent role either, not even when I was little, I remember I ended up being the witness in our little murder mystery play when we were 9. Scaring the hell out of the audience by yelling (child-safe) obscenities as the opening act.
The most innocent role I had... was propably being the priest during our tiny skit for confirmation at church. The priest made me wear his cloak thingy too, which probably was a sin in itself by the proper standards of the church since I was and still am no actual priest. (I'm not sure anyone else would technically be allowed wearing official robes?)

Let's see... what else have I even done... the crazy woman operating her cousin on the kitchen table while being interviewed (Loriot). Something other Loriot I don't remember which one though. I had it for reading Puck when we read A Midsummernight's Dream in English and weirdly enough I was always assigned to reading Ophelia and the occasional part of Horatio when we read Hamlet.
I actually don't remember which roles I had for that one unknown school play, but a lot of people dropped out of that and I ended up with three roles.
And the one I really wanted to do was Gallileo's daughter in a play about him, but I had to decline because I wasn't in the country for the final show (and we didn't have enough people for having understudies and whatnot.)

But that was all years ago. Ah, great now I start missing this.

And to the wasps... yeah, if you kill/smash them before they get the stinger out it won't hurt. With most animals and insects I'd rather get them out without killing them. Though wasps... there are too many wasps in recent years, thanks to global warming. But it still sounds like the guy was trying to show his cool with that comment before. XD

Hi guys^^


So, I've been lurking around this forum like a ghost for the past months, so I thought I should at least wish you all a happy new year !
I've lost interest in No.6 months ago, but I still like to see what you guys are up to, I don't know, it's a nice feeling... Nevermind, I'm weird^^


Anyway, have a great 2016 everyone !
How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back?
There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep... that have taken hold.

Happy New Year! *-*
(Oh well...at least here. o_o To our friends in America: I hope you'll have a great New Year's Eve celebration or at least a nice calm evening if you don't like celebrating that much. :D All the best to everyone for the New Year!)

@Yuneyn
It's good to see you're still lurking around, even though you're not into No. 6 anymore. o.o *hugs you carefully* :3 That doesn't mean we're not friends your friends anymore, right? You're not weird at all. :3

@Kai
Thank you X3 But sometimes it's a bit annoying. X'D People at my old job made fun of my voice (but well...it was in a kind way...they teased me a bit when I made some high noises, but I guess they rather thought it was cute... especially one of the coaches always freaked out when I was sneezing ^^ and he was always like: Awwww, can you do this again? X'D  Wtf...) and sometimes, customers didn't take me serious, because I sound quite young. x,x
Oh... I thought people would never cast me for a slightly evil role, but Kate is actually some kind of antihero, so it was pretty cool. XD She just screamed too much x.x It was a very difficult role, even the director and some people in the dub studio said that.
I hope I can do more of this stuff this year. :D

Woah, you had so many roles. That's cool. ^^ I don't really like acting... (well, just with my voice, but not on stage)...I prefer staying in the background. I'm not very self-confident and I'm super shy.
When I was in another dub studio a couple of years ago for some minor roles, the director was worried because I seemed so shy and then I'm always mumbling and talking very quietly. X'D (One of my friends just told me about his worries afterwards...) But I managed to convince him, lol. I screamed so loud that the mike over-modulated and he was like: God, not so loud... XD and I: "But my character is dying XD You'd also scream as loud as you can when you are going to die."
Oh, but that studio was cool, because the director couldn't see you. There was no window like in other studios where the cutter and the director can see you through the window.
I like to make stupid faces and to fidget with my arms, especially when a character is panicked or something.

Oh god x_x people are still so loooooud outside. o_o And it stinks although the windows are closed. Weird. XD
