I have a lot of feelings about my favorite character of all time, which is why I have it compiled into the graphic edit below! ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑) to summarize it further, kasumi nakasu is my favorite character of all time. i know she hasn’t existed for long, but she’s come to mean a LOT to me, so it being her birthday makes this a VERY special day! let’s celebrate!
unfortunately, due to school, i don’t have time to do new art for you, but i love you lots! in particular, I really love your outfit from popping up, which is why I drew it:
and here is my humble merch collection! it’s gonna grow in time, though, because many items have been pre-ordered and haven’t arrived yet! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
i’ve felt bad in the past from feeling like i wasn’t good enough to support others because I didn’t have enough money, or enough time, or I wasn’t good enough at the game... but none of that matters. all that matters is that you keep me going, and as long as you’re there, i’ll continue to do my best not only for you, kasumin, but for myself, too!
What’s up guys welcome to the Huynh x Huynh Kitchen! Today I made the iconic Japanese Strawberry Shortcake, topped with strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, and mikans. With Nijigaku as cake toppers with a white chocolate greeting card says 新年あけましておめでとうございます. (Happy New Year). Cake 🎂 Nice and fluffy interior with a simple whipped cream frosting. I hope this cake brings good vibes for the New Year!
Here’s my entry for the School Idol Café contest :D
Since the theme was Home For The Holidays, my first thought was of course a gingerbread house, but I wanted something savoury, and then I thought, but what if GUILTY KISS were left Home For The Holidays and, uh. Left to their own devices. So that was the concept for this. Guilty Kiss being left with lots of ideas and ingredients and zero supervision, producing their own take on a gingerbread house.
Without further ado, I proudly present…
The CASTLE OF ETERNAL DARKNESS, surrounded by its ABYSS OF STEWSHINE, and which can only be reached by braving the trembling BRIDGE OF THE YEARNING OSTINATO.
The castle is Black Like Yohane’s Soul, the sea of Stewshine comes with its own sea monster and complimentary rocks, and the piano keys on the bridge are a tribute to the many, many hours spent idly improvising fragments of melodies while daydreaming about smouldering older GL manga love interests.
And because it has to be pretty and delicious, here are pictures of the Stewshine on its own and the castle’s cross-section. It’s a Pâté En Croute, a kind of cold meat pie that is usually Not Vertical.
Now, for the process and contents! The Pâté is filled with an assortment of meats, as well as poultry livers and shiitake mushrooms, marinated in Madeira wine, herbs and spices (and for the livers, lemon juice). To make the dough black (I couldn’t NOT make it black), I used both black sesame seed paste and squid ink for a double shot of DARKNESS.
The real challenge was finding a mould that would work: Pâté en Croute is usually long, rectangular and horizontal, so of course I couldn’t find one that would work vertically, especially not one specifically made for this purpose, and I wanted it to cook vertically so it wouldn’t collapse on one side, and so I could make battlements. So I stacked a bunch of tart circles on top of each other, baked supports of salt dough around them to keep them in place, and then held the whole thing together with some string while baking. It was an experience, but hey, it worked, and the battlements baked perfectly without breaking! The last step was pouring Madeira jelly through the vent to make sure there are no gaps inside, but in the end I had pressed the meat down so well that I barely needed any at all. So before serving, I also glazed the whole thing with the rest of the jelly, to make it extra SHINY.
Now, unlike Mari Fricking Ohara, I unfortunately can’t afford to spend 100k yen on ingredients, so I had to do with something a little more reasonable for my stewshine, but I opted for a some fun ones to make up for it. The soup base is fish soup stock, in which I simmered some haddock, shrimp, mussels, shiitake mushrooms, a dash of squid ink, and added some PURPLE POTATOES because it’s Mari.
The sea monster and the top of the bridge are made of homemade kamaboko (japanese fishcake) made with the rest of the haddock. I made it a little denser than normal so I’d be able to shape it before steaming. The structure of the bridge is made from leftover dough, and the piano key pattern is painted on with more squid ink. I cut some of the potatoes into the shape of rocks and steamed them before placing them around the castle base, and used some slices as base to hold the sea monster parts.
And after all that work, it was time to finally enjoy!
(Unfortunately the picture is blurry but I only found out when posting this, and, well, unfortunately, we already ate it all. Oops)
Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed this GUILTY HOLIDAY full of Guilty Kiss energy!
Hi; I'm ralts...
I'm a new helper for the site! I'll do my best to help out, and learn some things in the process.
I'm pretty shy, both IRL and online, but once I get talking, I won't stop!
But not right now -- I've got to help put this site together!
What if all the Love Live! girls had jobs like Riko?
Do you agree/disagree? Any restaurants from your country that you think would make a good fit?
Nico - McDonald's: Nico's home away from home. Besides, she's arguably the most recognizable school idol (just like McDonald's), even if many people think she's trash (like McDonald's).
Umi - Subway: The health nut of the group, Umi champions a healthy lifestyle.
Honoka - Panera: Once she heard they had bread, she signed right up. She got in trouble with her mom, though, once it came out that she was working for a competing business.
Rin - Sonic: Accidentally signed up because she thought they were affiliated with SEGA. She stuck around for the roller skates.
Maki - the old spaghetti factory: Suitably fancy enough for Maki's taste, the main draw of this restaurant (for her) is the marinara sauce.
Hanayo - Panda Express: Hanayo was one of the last girls to be recruited for a restaurant. Or rather, she refused to endorse anyone who didn't primarily serve rice. She had to settle for Panda Express once she realized there weren't many other options.
Eli - tcby: Nobody knows what tcby stands for, but that's ok, because nobody knows how to spell Harasho. Eli wanted a cold treat to represent her Russian roots, while staying light on calories.
Nozomi - Hooters: The business' best representative as well as its strongest supporter.
Kotori - The Cheesecake Factory: Kotori was originally going to sign with KFC, but then she saw that cheesecake selection...
Kanan - Joe's Crab Shack: The company hoped Kanan's feminine appeal would bring in more customers, but it seems like they may go under. Kanan's fine with it, though; she prefers running her diving business anyways.
Hanamaru - golden corral: Nothing too fancy, and lots of it. Hanamaru's modest personality also appeals to the older customer base.
Yoshiko - In N Out Burger: People either love In N Out or they hate it. Pretty much the same with Yoshiko. As a bonus, you can order a Fallen Angel off the secret menu.
Kanata - IHOP: Every time you wake up, the next thing you eat is breakfast. So for Kanata, every meal is breakfast.
Emma - Wendy's: Emma is the spitting image of the mascot, so she naturally took on the role.
Setsuna - Pizza Hut: Since she wants to be a popular idol, Setsuna went with a popular chain. Also Pizza Hut is red, which is sort of her thing. Just like a pizza, Setsuna can wear different clothes and change her flavor.
Karin - Chipotle: Karin likes to eat out with her friends, and Chipotle is just the right mix of mature and casual. She always goes for the hot sauce so she can show off.
Kasumi - Denny's: Kasumi took over Denny's Tumblr account. They hired her because she enjoys pranking people (which fits their image).
Ayumu - The Melting Pot: Ayumu works as a representative for The Melting Pot. When she isn't voicing a commercial for them, she walks the floor of the restaurant and helps people figure out how fondue works.
