It's technically summer, and there is still no news of the airdate of the HanaKimi Special! ;_; And as Avatar is a couple of weeks away (WITH SOME IROH, DAMMIT!), I need to fill the void. Thus, I have begun rewatching the HanaKimi series again. Not that Avatar and HanaKimi are remotely similar. I just have a need for crazy laugh out loud joy. And Nakatsu, hehehe. So be warned, there shall be much fangirling to come! Apologies in advance!
Apparently, Arashi are doing the theme song for Ohno's new drama Maou. Which is fitting, as it's Riida's first drama but I was kinda hoping for Toma to have something to do with it! :( Will Mr Johnny never let him graduate from being a junior?!
( Spoilers for end of School Rumble season 1! )
Doctor Who was quite good this weekend as well!
But I promise, any and all spoilers will be blacked out. ^_^ Or LJ-cut, whichever seems appropriate.
I have almost no idea what is going on with comics these days. With work taking up all my time (FREEDOM, COME BAAAAACK), I don't have time to browse through comic sites to see what's going on in comics I don't read. There's something going on in DC that I'm not really aware of. Is Kyle evil these days? There's another crisis? It doesn't help that I'm only reading three DC books on a regular basis (Detective Comics, Nightwing and Teen Titans). Even if I was buying all the books, I still wouldn't know what was happening in Marvel. Something to do with Skrulls and such. I'm not sure if Thor or Hulk have shown up to kick Tony Stark's ass yet. All I know is that no matter how hard I wish, Spidey's not gonna go back to how he used to be. Ultimate Spidey is all kinds of awesome though. ^_^
In regards to TV shows, with the shorter seasons this year, most of the shows I watch are starting to wrap up now. (UK is always insanely behind) Bones season finale. WTF?! Zack! ;_; I love Zack, why?! Why do the characters I love always leave? He's just so adorable, I felt so sorry for him. Now he gotta live in the nuthouse. :( And that stunt with Booth. Okay, I knew he wasn't dead. But I did the same thing with Veronica from Prison Break for weeks before I accepted she died. XD That said, Booth, please never stop being hawtsome. And Hodgins better stop being so cute, I can't afford to have yet another TV crush. It's gonna go into triple digits! Lost is also wrapping for us next Sunday, it's probably already aired in the US though. I really hope that nothing sinister happens to Jin and Desmond. I love them both. And I have a track record, bad things always happen to characters I like. Which is very annoying, as characters I hate never seem to disappear. EVER. Lana is still on Smallville dammit! And Michael Rosenbaum has left! YOU MUST BE JOKING IF YOU THINK I'M STILL WATCHING! .... Okay, I'll watch if Ollie comes back, haha.
( Now for talk about JE and J-Dramas! )
As for anime, I've rewatched Escaflowne for the millionth time (and still get mad at the ending!), I've also watched Cromartie High School (CRACK!), Azumanga Daioh (Osaka and Yukari for the win) and am in the middle of rewatching School Rumble. Oh Harima, I feel for ya man. He is the definition of misunderstood. I'm probably gonna start watching Ouran Host Club again, as I'm missing Tamaki. XD I was thinking of watching Fullmetal Alchemist but I don't think I can go through all the heartbreak again. That show broke me, and now I cry at everything dammit.
Season 2 of Avatar was on earlier today, and dammit, IROH! ;_; He was cracking wise and talking about tea and being all awesome and I was like IROH! COME BAAAAACK!
I watched this anime a little over a year ago, but I've been rewatching it recently (it's out on DVD now, yay!), and forgotten how funny it is! XD I don't think I ever got bored! I dare say it's as funny as Azumanga Daioh, if AzuDai had a romantic sublot, haha.
What's this? You haven't watched it?!?!
Well then my friend, click on the LJ Cut and see the awesomeness! I think I'll use FUNi's tag line...it fits the show so perfectly!
( No! Wait! It's not what you think! )
Now, if that doesn't get you watching it, I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL! *shakes fist*
Animated GIFs and YouTube videos!
chochajin and japan_girl16 will love these YouTube links. I thought I may as well post them before they disappear. You may have seen these before. A few years back, the Johnny's boys used to do a sports thingy. This is the backstage stuff.
It looks like it's been scripted, but no one told the younger Johnny's! XD It seems to have been a comedic plan cooked up by V6, Tokio and Kinki Kids.
Basically, the Johnnys have been split into two teams: J-Red and J-White. I'm assuming (my understanding of Japanese is so basic, so please correct me if I'm wrong) that they wanna go have a talk with the other team, but that junior (Hasagawa?) keeps starting a fight with Sakamoto from V6.
On a slightly off-topic note, some of these guys never age. Seriously. Inohara, Nagano and Nagase all look the same as they do now. Well, Nagase's hair looks different.
Another thing I've learned from these videos is that Tokio are just as nuts as V6 are. Except Tokio look like they could take you and all your mates in a bar fight! XD
It's funny watching these, cos you can spot loads of Johnny's boys when they were younger. I saw half of Arashi in there, Jin Akanishi, (Toma's in there too chochajin!!), Yamapi. Poor kids, they're all cracking up laughing while the older boys have their fun.
Oh yeah, and a massive fight always breaks out. XD
Anyhoo! On to the clips!
A clip from 2000
A clip from 2001
A clip from 2002
The last one has to be my favourite. Simply because they all break out and do Broadway style dancing. Oh you crazy boys, how I love you! XD
