I watched Ballad of Soldier earlier today and it moved me so much that it was time for a new avatar. Incredible film.

Where is your avatar from?

Not sure if it was possible for a camera to capture Dirk Bogarde at anything other than a badass pose -- how photogenic and badass can a person be! :)

I'm kind of destroyed right now. I thought you were a round, torsoless, yellow person with a popcorn-eating inhibition disorder, and here I find that you didn't even use your real photo. Lies on the internet! :o

Well, the popcorn half is right. OTOH, unless you look like Simone Simon... ;)

My iCM avatar is a lot closer to what I look like in meatspace.

I don't really look like anybody. My mother is a dead-ringer for Natalie Wood (only much taller...she's now a lot older than Wood ever got to be, so the resemblance isn't quite as jaw-droppingly obvious as in earlier decades), but I only got half of her genes, and I'm very much Daddy's Girl. My sister got most of the Natalie Wood genes (plus the height), lucky girl.

:D
IMDb synopsis:
Bokustsu tenshi Dokuro-chan, aka Club-to-Death Angel Dokuro-chan, is about a boy named Sakura Kusakabe who lives with an angel named Dokuro(or Dokuro-chan as they call her). Dokuro's like any normal angel, she uses magical powers to turn people into animals, she likes to torture people, oh, and she carries around a spiked metal bat that she beats people to death with, of course using her magical "Pipiru piru piru pipiru pi" spell to revive them again. Sakura has to worry enough with Dokuro-chan killing him all the time, but there's also other angels planning to kill him without reviving him again. Can he avoid his ill-fated demise?

Oh, it gets better...

Also from Wikipedia (spoiler tagged because some people won't appreciate the content...you have been warned):
Spoiler: click to toggleShow
"Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan tells the story of a 13-year-old junior high schooler, Sakura Kusakabe, who, twenty years in the future, while attempting to create a "Pedophile's World" forces all women to stop aging after the age of twelve, offends God by the side effect of having created immortality. Dokuro Mitsukai, a member of an order of assassin angels that are called Rurutie, has been sent from the future to kill him. Believing that Sakura can be redeemed, Dokuro decides instead to keep Sakura so occupied that he can never develop the immortality technology. Due to her impulsive nature and super-human strength however, she frequently kills him with her gigantic spiked kanabō (club), Excalibolg, on a moment's impulse, but returns him to life moments later with angelic power. Sabato, another assassin of the Rurutie order who uses her feminine wiles to do her job, is dispatched to complete Dokuro's original mission: Sakura's assassination."
