In random TV/fandom related news, it is apparently the season for re-watching as I'm in the mood to go back and watch some J-dramas! On the list is Long Vacation, My Boss My Hero and possibly Hanayome to Papa. I am feeling a Hana Yori Dango rewatch, mostly cos IPKKND is reminding me a lot of HYD at the mo but I'm worried that Arnav and Khushi have ruined all angry guy/spunky girl pairings for me with their outstanding chemistry. I guess it's cos you can feel the want from both sides, but in HYD (for me at least) it always came more from Tsukasa's side.

Speaking of IPKKND, I'm trying my level best to avoid spoilers for tonight's episode but the fandom has exploded this afternoon. I took one sneak peek, which was a big mistake cos I'm not at home and I'm on the verge of turning into this:

How am I supposed to be mad at you Arnav, when you keep doing.....that!

GIFs are mostly of Coffee Prince, some Johnny's, Kisarazu Cat's Eye, Nobuta, Hana Yori Dango, Hannya and one amusing GIF from Seto no Hanayome.

Image heavy! )

It asks you 20 questions and guesses the fictional character that you're thinking of. I decided to be difficult and think of Doumyouji Tsukasa...AND IT GOT IT RIGHT! :O Even had the MatsuJun promo photo. I squealed, and laughed. Did Sokka, got it right again. Also got Chuck Bass. He didn't get The Doctor though, which was surprising!

Awesome way to amuse yourself if you're bored.

Speaking of The Doctor, watching bits of Red Nose Day last night made me re-realise how much I'm gonna miss David Tennant!

I've been kinda keeping an eye on Boys Over Flowers via people's LJ posts, and Jun Pyo's totally won me over, and I haven't even watched it yet! XD I must wait til it's finished! He does kinda remind me of Kimura Takuya, I don't know why. So, there's iconage. I squee muchly at this icon!

Speaking of KimuTaku, I finished Karei-Naru Ichizoku. Dudes. My heart broke! This drama is just...okay, so the banking element did kinda make my head hurt at times, but it was very interesting. But also, to quote Ron Stoppable, SICK AND WRONG! IT'S WRONGSICK! Gah! And can see why he beat out MatsuJun for best actor that year. Although, I think in HYD, MatsuJun is always up for supporting actor instead of lead actor. It was a good idea to save Spidey until after I had finished watching this drama. It was really good. But for the sake of my soul, I don't think I'll be able to go back and watch it again!

As I was reading Ultimate Spidey, and this ad caught my eye:

Gotta say, made me chuckle. (WHICH I TOTALLY NEEDED BY THE WAY) Also, there can never be enough of Johnny Storm and Peter Parker BFFs in any canon. :) Seriously Marvel, you ever wanna make a team-up buddy cop style movie with Johnny and Peter, I'd pay money. Much money!

I saw this poster for a Korean movie called The Good, The Bad, The Weird in the West End and I ended up staring at it for ages, cos I couldn't work out where I'd seen one of the guys before. It only hit me when I got home that it was Lee Byung Hun! XD

Sadly, it'll probably be a while until I watch Korean HYD! :( Too bad, cos it looks really good.

Oooh, I almost forgot, I've started watching Karei-Naru Ichizoku, I'm up to episode four. Kimura Takuya never ceases to amaze me, he's a good actor! BUT OMG, WHAT A MESSED UP FAMILY! I'm watching this thing through my hands half the time!

I've finally finished season 7 of Smallville. I think it took me so long cos I knew it was Michael Rosenbaum's last season, but also cos all the Clana action gave me hives that only I could see, haha!

Season 8 looks like it's gonna be good. Less flanel on Clark is always a good thing, plus Ollie is back. Me loves Ollie! :D

Also, I've decided to put off Kare-naru Ichizoku for another week, as my friend told me that it was very good "but all the evil whorish flavoured injustice will damage your soul". That kinda scared me! XD I will watch it next week though!

Also, I must restrain myself from watching Boys Before Flowers. Not that I don't want to watch it, I do, but as Honey & Clover taught me: weekly doses do not work for me. So I've got to wait until it's finished. BUT DAMMIT FANDOM, STOP MAKING SUCH AWESOME ICONS! Seriously. There's awesome iconage of this show going around, and I want to snag em all, but I haven't seen the awesome that the awesome icons come from yet! ;_; Technically, I know everything that'll happen, cos I've read most of the manga....maybe I should save them and then bring them out again when the series is finished? XD Don't even get me started on Uta no Oniisan. Ohno's crack enough, but Maru looks so adorable I can't stand it!

Yes, randomness again, I apologise.

Oooh, also, I've given up on Naruto. I was so behind on the series already, but then I skipped all the infamous filler and tried watching Shippuden, but four episodes in, I couldn't take it anymore. I think I may have grown out of liking this genre of anime now, with Honey and Clover, Ouran Host Club and School Rumble being so awesome. But I also think One Piece may have ruined all other shonen anime for me from here on out. It's just....I don't know. Naruto drags. And there's not enough Jiraiya or Rock Lee to keep me interested. I might someday just revisit it in manga form. I guess it's just cos Oda's awesome, but he's also managed to give an equal amount of time and awesomeness into developing a cast of characters that is continually growing. I've never made it a secret that I can't stand Sasuke or Sakura and well, Naruto can only be cute for a short amount of time. So when you like only one of the three main kinda becomes Smallville and there's no Michael Rosenbaum being awesome and oogle worthy. I like a cast that has AN interesting variety, and also a supporting cast that is just as awesome as the main cast (Oh Spider-Man supporting characters....I MISS YOU SO). I will never understand how people try and even compare Naruto with the awesomeness that was Avatar, but to each their own! I'm pretty sure people would question my taste in some things.

And thus, ends the Friday rant.

Hmm....I haven't rewatched Escaflowne yet this year.... XD

Well, suffice to say, I loved the movie! :D

The plot was a little questionable, but there were cameos, beautiful location shoots, DOUMYOUJI MISTAKES! (I was quite happy to see these) and much Makino/Doumyouji cuteness!

Cut for spoilers and squeeing. )

I loved it very much, and it was the best ending I could've hoped for.

It is the weekend, ja ja ja jaaan!

Hanadan movie, ja ja ja jaaan!


My icon is totally dancing to CardCaptor Sakura - Catch You Catch Me! XD

I love Nabeshin! XD
gb23: (KCE: MAJI DE?!)

Today was very tiring, and very cold, and I definitely needed to hear the following good news.

1. HANA YORI DANGO FINAL HAS BEEN SUBBED! YES! Even though I'll have to wait til the weekend to watch it! But still, Doumyouji, YES!

2. I don't know how I didn't know about this until this morning (considering the news was reported a while back) but NODAME CANTABILE IS GETTING TWO MOVIES NEXT YEAR, CARRYING OFF FROM PARIS! More Nodame, More Chiaki, More GYABOOOOOO!

3. Avatar Book 1 is finally coming out IN THE UK! :D

And just to add the icing on my awesome day cake, Nishikido Ryo being all scared and funny:


Saw the preview for it, it looks pretty good! It's definitely following the manga more than the Japanese version did, but how did it turn out that the best looking member of F4 is Soujiro?! XD

I think it'll be pretty good, but Rui was more interesting to me in the J-drama than he was in the manga, so I doubt anyone will beat Oguri's performance of Rui for me. Tsukasa's actor has to get that right balance of adorable/insane/idiot, so we'll see how that goes.

Happy holidays, everyone! :D
gb23: (One Piece: Not Crying!)

Okay, cos of work, I'm having to marathon J-Dramas on weekends now (which is why I'm so behind!), but there are some that shouldn't be marathoned.

Case in point: Maou.

Don't get me wrong, it was friggin' awesome!

But talk about emotional overload! All the crying, evil stares, twists you think you know are coming but then don't and the new twist makes you all OMGWTF1, Toma gorgeousness, occassional Tanaka gorgeousness, and the running! What does Toma run on?! XD Well, he did say Red Bull, but he should be careful! Too much of that stuff ain't good. And Leader! Little adorable slightly spacey Leader! He was so good! I'm glad that stupid "scandal" stuff didn't stop him from doing dramas. (His next one looks so damn funny!)

The ending though. Geez! And now I've got emotional overload headache! XD

Also, lookit:

(I hope it works this time!) It's the trailer for Crows Zero II! It looks really good, and I see Serizawa! Yay! I loved him in the last movie. I probably won't see it for at least 18 months after it comes out, but the first DVD came out with English subs so I'm hopeful for this movie too! Unlike HYD. GAH! I'm so annoyed that DVD isn't coming out with English subs! They had some pretty director's cut version with 30 mins extra to the movie! WHAT IF THERE'S FUNNY TSUKASA ENGLISH!? I WANNA SEE! ;_;

Haha, okay, rant over. :)

*shakes fist* Damn you, awesome Pride soundtrack!

I was all ready to re-watch Nodame, but listened to the Pride soundtrack and now I wanna watch that again! T_T I still haven't watched Attention Please! the first time around! XD Okay, Nodame, then Pride, then AP!, then ProDai.....hahaha, I hope I get to all those before my yearly Christmas HYD marathon!

*shakes fist* Damn you, awesome Pride soundtrack!

I finally finished the Korean drama, Full House! I really need to stop watching more than 2 dramas at once, it's taking me ages to finish them! XD

I gotta say, I loved it a lot. It did start to drag a bit in the last four episodes, but I guess they had to fill the sixteen episode production order. But of course, if they had stopped four episodes short, we would've lost some really hilarious Young Jae moments. I don't know about you, but I love it when tall guys act stupid and dorky. It's so funny.

Okay, so the plot, courtesy of DramaWiki: Han Ji Eun is a naive writer who got swindled out of everything she owned including her house by her best friends. Stranded in China, She managed to borrow money from an actor Lee Young Jae to return to Korea. On her return, she found out that her house was bought by Lee Young Jae. In an attempt to get her possessions back, she entered in a contract marriage with Young Jae for one year. In spite of losing all, Ji Eun manages to be cheerful and takes things in strike and the business relationship between the two becomes personal as they start to rely and care for each other.

May I just say, Ji Eun is too nice of a person. Seriously. If my friends did that to me, I'd have shopped them to the police, no problem. Although, if Asian dramas have taught me anything, it's that I seem to not be a very forgiving person! XD (See Kurosagi, Love Revolution, Nobuta wo Produce...and a few more I can't remember now) Her friends were also SO DAMN ANNOYING! I could stand Dong Wook in small doses, but OMG I could strangle Hee Jin half the time! She didn't even feel guilty!

I'ma put the rest behind a cut, cos it contains spoilers and much ranting as usual. )

In short, I did like it and will probably watch it again! I am quite surprised, given that this show was such a ratings killer in Korea, that they haven't tried to make a Japanese version yet. There are remakes of K-Dramas and J-Dramas all over the place these days (with the Korean version of HYD having just being cast!). I can't think of anyone except Nagase Tomoya for Young Jae. XD

Also, I've been catching up on Bones. I MISS ZACK! ;_; Sweets is funny, but in small doses, but in no way does he replace Zack. AND WHY ANGELA AND HODGINS!? ;_; Not fair, not fair at all. I still love Seeley Booth, and he gets more awesome with each episode. "You can't date two guys at the same time Bones, it's not right. It's why they invented duelling." Heehee. He's adorkable, yet manly.

I've been trying to find a new cartoon to fill the Avatar void. *ala Fairly Odd Parents* NOTHING FILLS THE VOID! T_T I have been watching quite a bit of Phineas and Ferb, and it's actually quite funny! Very tongue in cheek. Anyone got any ideas on when Spectacular Spider-Man season 2 is gonna start up? Oh, and if you haven't watched Spectacular Spider-Man yet, GO DO IT NOW. Seriously. I'll wait. ^_^

Also, Sakurai Sho's new haircut? Hawtsome.

I finished Last Christmas!!

Spoilers for last episode! )

I loved the main OTP. They complimented each other brilliantly, and I said this before, but it's nice to see adult behaviour in a romantic relationship! No silly misunderstandings that go on for episodes and episodes, no hesitating of declaring feelings, etc etc. I dunno if they'll be my favourite J-Drama pairing ever (DOUMYOUJI/MAKINO FOR THE WIN!) but they're definitely up there.

Kenji's character is also one of the few emotionally stable and noble guys I've seen in J-Dramas so far. He doesn't fly off at the handle when someone gives him some home truths, he does right by everyone but still manages to not screw himself over in the process. He's nice, but not a push over. He's confident but not annoyingly arrogant. (I'm looking at you, Chiaki!!) He knows what he wants and sticks to his decision, no matter what annoying ex-girlfriends turn up! He's up there with Hiroto from Tatta Hitotsu no Koi and Mine from Nodame Cantabile in terms of old school dude...ness. Kenta-senpai from Papa to Musume almost makes it, but he's still a teenager, who knows how college will ruin him? XD I wanna include Suga-san from Love Revolution but the latter half of the series kinda disqualifies him.

Anyhoo, it was a good drama! Now! Off to finish Zettai Kareshi. I wonder which episode I was on.....

EDIT: Just a little thing that occured to me. Yokoyama Yuu has an amazingly amusing laugh. ^_^

The new Arashi song for the Hana Yori Dango Movie is out. I've had it on repeat for an unhealthy number of times. Not only does Arashi cause me to go insane and dance around, but it also causes much embarrassment as my mother busts me dancing around and cleaning at the same time. It's not even a dance-y song! *sigh* And any of us not living in Japan will not see the movie until it comes out on DVD, which I'm guessing will be around December time. And if it costs an insane amount of money, I WILL GET THE SPECIAL EDITION! *fist pump*

In other news; Ikuta Toma is a fan of One Piece. Just when I thought I couldn't love him anymore than I already do! XD

So, fangirling wise, today has been awesome.

New Avatar eps ( are beyond awesome<3), and now HYD movie trailer!!!

The HYD trailer was so awesome, I can't wait for this movie! (But I must, as I will not be in Japan and will have to wait for the DVD release) It looks good! MatsuJun looks hot and FUJIKI NAOHITO! <3 I wouldn't be surprised if I starting doing a Sanji style "MELLORINE!" while I watch this movie! XD My OTP better be happy and have the smoochies this time, dammit!

Quick! Go watch it so we can squee!

This girl believes in reindeer! )

It's not normal.

This HachiKuro drama is making me tear up every damn episode! Okay, so it's probably because Toma's playing Takemoto, and probably because I know how it ends BUT STILL! I'm coming to accept all the changes to the show, and enjoying it for what it is. I am kinda sad that Shuuji isn't nuts. ;_; I wanted to see the bat with nails! I think if I go back and watch the anime, I'll probably cry a lot more than I did the first time round. Getting older makes me weird!!!

Not normal at all.

I want to get excited for the Kurosagi movie and HYD movie, but I know I won't be able to see them until Christmas time so it's kinda moot. It's not fair, Yamapi looks awesome and I wanna know if he catches that guy whose name I forgot!!!

Anyone seen the new Hey! Hey! Hey! with NewS? I never knew Tegoshi could be so ero! XD It was hilarious!

Now, to start a new drama, SP! :D Okada, yaaaaay!

Also: WHERE THE @*&# IS AVATAR?!?!!?!

That's all for today.

Lol, well I don't need it urgently, but it'd be nice! I have way too many icons saved, and not enough being used! Especially given my newfound Kanjani 8 love, I don't have enough space for them!

In other news, weekends are much too short. We need three days not two! *shakes fist*

Weird dream! Kanjani8 cuteness! Other things! )

P.S.1: What was the last issue of Runaways that came out? I haven't been able to get to the comic shop for a while, just been buying online, and I'm not really sure! :/

P.S.2: MatsuJun has the Doumyouji haircut! :D Filming has begun, yaaaay!

Please enjoy! :D
