*sigh* Why can't I just lie??

November 30th, 2008 (03:40 am)

I just discovered that Cobalt's page has a lovely Hakushaku wallpaper available to members. (It's a wallpaper version of novel 2's cover.) Unfortunately, not only is it only up until Dec 1 (Japan Time), it's only available to their Cobalt members (free newsletter service). However, in order to join the free service, you have to meet four requirements:

1. have internet access and a valid e-mail address
2. answer some questions at the time of sign-up (looks like it might be some sort of questionnaire)
3. agree to receive emails from Shuueisha
4. must reside in Japan

>.> That last one obviously kills me. *sigh* Why, why, why can't I just lie and hit the agree button?! >.<;;

I'll admit, not all is lost, but... *sigh* Here's a link to their wallpaper page. There's a Hakushaku wallpaper there too, just a different one. ^^;

Ahh, the site looks awesome. Really pity that we don't live in Japan. *sighs*

And thank for the link. ;3 I will put that wallpape when Christams season will be over (having GH christmas wallpaper right now).

*sigh* If only they didn't have that last condition. >.> It would've been so nice, and it's not like folks outside the country don't buy the magazine... >.>

Ah well, will have to make do with whatever comes out on their site. ^^;

Lying may not solve your problem. If they chose to do so, your email address can be used to identify your country of origin.

Pretty, pretty picture on the second link. I was able to save that one.

Edit: I saw a couple of nice anime-based wallpapers before the series started airing. Foolish me didn't save the pictures, and now I can't find the blog I saw them on. I'm an ijit.

*laughs* True, although I suspect the IP address would be more telling. There are plenty of foreigners living over there. ^_^

Hmm... I haven't tried looking around on J sites whatsoever for Hakushaku to Yousei stuffs. Maybe I should take a peek over on their end. ^^;

Hungary - panting glare with camera

Late reply but... Would it happen to be like any of the wallpapers like here? This is just a sub-category of a Hakushaku no Yousei gallery on a Chinese site I believe... But I found a lot of wallpapers that I believe are from the site you're referring to. Thought I'd try to help since you're so awesome with translation and such~ *worship*

It appears to be from a newly released novel: The Ends of the Sea, The Gates of Heaven--The Grand Adventure of the Pirate (with reason) and the enslaved Princess of the Mythical Beast. Something about an orphan girl, Ran, growing up on the streets only to get sold as a slave one day. Her buyer is the captain of a pirate ship who sets her to doing menial work on board his ship...
