gb23: (One Piece: Not Crying!)

In a sudden and bastardous twist, IPKKND will be ending this Friday. Yes, apparently they can end a show in a few days and not tell anyone.

Merlin is also ending this year. Although I was kinda feeling this one. I can feel that having a tragic end too.

Young Justice is on hiatus and Korra's not back til next year. Fandom hasn't been very kind of late. XD

But with IPKKND over, I will probably have more time to post here now. If anyone's still left? (Yes, it sadly did take up a lot of my free time. It's a daily show after all!)
gb23: (Avatar: Honor)

I haven't done a big post in ages! To be fair, I haven't had much to post about except IPKKND but now all my shows are back so let's get to it!

First, randomly, I watched Kaibutsu-kun. Ohno's an amazing actor. I've only seen him in Maou, but the complete contrast between the two characters and how he played them is amazing. He totally became those characters. And even though it was a children's drama (right?), all the actors were really into it. None of them scoffed at what they were doing, and I think that made it all the more enjoyable. It's not an OMG GO WATCH IT NOW type of drama, but if you're looking for a break from romance or dark dramas, then this is a good way to pass the time.

Spoilers for Castle and Merlin. )

And now onto Young Justice, or as someone so brilliantly put it on tumblr...

It's a lie that this is a kid's show. A BIG FAT LIE. )

This week's ep of YJ pretty much cemented why I've stopped watching so many live action American shows and I'm watching more American animated shows instead. Leaving out the animation (which is superb by the way), the writing, acting and continuity on this show is amazing and most US tv shows wish they had this kind of consistency. I know people might be put off cos it's about costumed superheroes (DC superheroes to boot), but it's one of the best action shows on TV at the moment.

As for IPKKND...

I'm pretty sure I won't be as happy for my married life as I am for theirs. XD

Castle is back! :D

Young Justice is back on Saturday! :D

Merlin will be back in a couple of weeks! (I heard) :D

All good things because IPKKND killed all my happy feels today. Sigh. This is your final exam, ASR. If you fail it, I don't care how hot you are, we are done! All my fangirl feels will go to NK instead!

I still can't find a copy of I Hate Luv Storys so I watched some other Bollywood films, and it's official. No actor can make me cry like Shahrukh Khan. ;_;


- After having lots of little cousins over during the summer hols, I have unfortunately picked up a bad habit of speaking like Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time. (At least, I think that's her name?)

- I have seen The Dark Knight Rises, I will post properly about it on the weekend after I see Brave (finally!). I will say I enjoyed it a lot, but it didn't blow me away, which was a shame.

- I have a feeling IPKKND is about to get very intense, and not in the happy way. I will need to have some funny on standby.

- The Legend of Korra is apparently getting a movie, but don't worry, it's an animated feature!

- Ikuta Toma's getting a drama, yaaaaay!

This one goes first cos I had it written out already. XD

Young Justice is on a mid-season break/summer vacation.

I was not comfortable with the whole 5 year timeskip at first, but as the episodes went on I realised it was because we were missing a heck of a lot of backstory and I hate not knowing backstory. (Proof of this being catching up on 100+ episodes of IPKKND in a week. XD) There were two episodes I didn't get to fangirl about. First, the episode with Impulse. Of course, my reaction was like this:

Spoilers! )

Then the next episode, half season finale! All I can say is AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Main points.

More spoilers! )

Watching Korra later today but I watched Young Justice! I'm so glad I didn't read the spoilers cos my favourite character from the YJ comics showed up and I was literally like...

Quick post!

Jun. 2nd, 2012 06:15 pm

A more substantial post later, as I'll have more time thanks to the four day weekend!! :D

- Korra's back this week, yay!

- Last new Young Justice for a while. :(

But apparently it's an episode written by PAD so I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

- After this week's action packed IPKKND, I just had to make this gif. XD

This show has totally sent me back 10 years. IT'S NOT GOOD! I've worked very hard on maintaining a certain level of cynicism towards life but the OTP are being too precious right now. XD

- After being challenged by my friend, I settled on 7 (possibly 8) animes that Hollywood could adapt into live action. Important word being could. They should never touch these anyway, but it'd be better than going for ones that they need to change almost everything.

- I finished Beethoven Virus, it was really good! Very different from the Korean dramas I usually watch, but very entertaining. And I want Jang Geun Suk to record a book on tape or something cos his speaking voice is ear candy!

Korra's on a break next Saturday! ;_; Anyhoo, ramblings on this week's episode.

Spoilers and 2 gifs! )

Young Justice! Which hopefully, is not on a break next week cos I need my cartoons!

Spoilers and reaction gifs. Cos this episode had too many WHAT moments. )

This episode can pretty much be summed up in one gif.

But I have more, as usual. XD

Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers! )

It's late! XD

First, Korra.

Spoilers! )

And YJ, which was less squee worthy this week.

Spoilers! )

I'll combine both nerd posts today. XD

Korra! Episode 4! Already too much is happening, but then I remember it has to be fast cos it's a mini series!

Spoilers! )

Season 2 has kicked off on YJ...

More spoilers! )

HOLY CRAP! What an amazing episode. The animation was on point, the voice acting was amazing and just when you thought the plot twist last episode was enough, there was another one! ;_; Reaction gifs under the cut, but no gifs or pics of the show this time. (I didn't have time to gif this weeks' one!)

Happy new year! )

I can't tell you guys how glad I am that the second season is starting straight away. And since this is a YJ post, I may as well do an "end of season cliff notes" thingy.

Overall Impression of the Show: Better than I ever could have hoped for. The thing I loved most was that you could totally enjoy this show without having any knowledge of DC Comics or even if you don't like superhero shows in general. It's a really good action animation show. Prior knowledge of the comics only adds to the experience.

Okay, geeking out over! BRING ON SEASON 2!


Apr. 16th, 2012 12:37 am

YOUNG JUSTICE THIS WEEK, HOLY CRAP! ;_; Will post in detail later as it's late here but also because I am in shock and have waaaay too many feelings but these two gifs are a small fraction of the feelings!

Well done YJ staff. I did NOT see that coming at all! (Or maybe I did, I'll have to check through my old posts. XD) I need it to be next week right now!!

I wanna post something of substance but I have no time! ;_; So, quick version!

Ultimate Spider-Man is the funniest Marvel cartoon ever. I wanna adopt Peter, he's so cute. And if I was much younger, I'd totally be crushing on Iron Fist. XD I haven't watched this week's Avengers yet! And just a few more days til Korra (for me, I'm late I know). YJ was not what I was expecting this week, but that obvious line from Roy was the "it couldn't get any worse" moment that happens before everything goes to crap. And yes, stil no word on the mole. I'm waiting for that heartbreak this weekend. XD

Speaking of Avengers, TWO WEEKS FROM TOMORROW! :D (Sorry North Americans, I believe you're getting it the week after that!) The world premiere was last night and word on Twitter is that it's amazing. *fangirl tears* I don't care, I'm seeing it at least twice.

IPKKND is on a filler storyline at the moment, but lots of cute moments. I wanna gif so much but I have no time recently and I can't get a good video to gif it! The Beauty and the Beast parallel was spot on, Shyam is totally Gaston in this situation. I've been catching up with all the episodes I missed! Payal used to be so fierce, what happened girl?! But because of this drama, I'm behind on my US tv shows! ;_; But the last ep of Castle I saw was just...too many emotions! The finale's going to be crackin'!

And finally, best advert of the moment:

I don't know why it makes me laugh hysterically, but it does!

Episode 22 of 26, FOUR MORE TO GO! Luckily! Season 2 is meant to start straight after season 1, so yay! :D

Anyway, the episode was awesome. Character development is one of the things I love most about any piece of fiction, so this episode was like crack for me. XD Lots of talking, some action but so much development, I actually squeaked NO! when the episode finished. And can I say, as much as Kevin Conroy will always be my Batman, that this version of the character may be my favourite ever version?! I love Papa Bats!

Spoilers! Major! )

Show, you have to stop being so awesome. If these are the usual "interlude before the big finale" episodes, how am I going to survive the finale? Especially since Korra will have started by then as well! Can I take all that awesome, or will I be too geeked out to function by Monday?

So it turns out the episode of YJ I was expecting to freak out over isn't going to air for another 3 weeks.

However, this week's was a great episode and had some surprises!

Spoilers! )

This is going to be a long week! XD

Randomly surfing the net, and I find out that Turkey is a few episodes ahead of the US for Young Justice! They're dubbed in Turkish, so I'm not going to go look for those ones. XD However, I did find out that apparently in next week's episode (which they've seen but we haven't), we're going to find out who the mole is.

This was me when I read that. IT'S BEEN A YEAR NOW! I think! We've been waiting ages for this! But then, someone who has watched it was all "I know who the mole is, I need someone to cry with!" So now, I'm like this:

My new theory of the mole being Superman, who is actually not the real Superman but a clone from Cadmus planted way back is out of the window because I don't think anyone cares enough about Superman to cry for him. XD I'm now more worried that the mole may be Robin, as next week's episode is centered on him and he's so cute and funny and my faves always get messed about.

AH, I'm all fangirled out over here! All I know is, from Saturday afternoon until Sunday night, I'm putting myself on Internet blackout until I see the ep!


Mar. 4th, 2012 11:11 am


I shall return later tonight once I've watched it, as I want to avoid spoilers but I'M VERY EXCITED!

- Halfway though Two Towers now (I know, it takes me ages to watch anything), and I forgot how much I loved these films. Unfortunately, having watched them so many times before, there are things that I will forever find funny that were not meant to be funny in the first place. Examples being "Gondor has no pants", The Lambas Bread Commercial and of course "They're taking the hobbits to Isengard!" XD

- Batman of the Future. Even though the episodes were mostly stand alone episodes, I still love it as much as I did before. Old!Bruce is the snarkiest, and he would be an awesome/scary grandpa. I still forget that Terry's only meant to be 17. XD Maybe it's cos I was younger when I first watched it, they look more like college students to me. Of course, I only realised this time round that Terry and Ten probably slept together in the first episode she appeared, and they also implied that they tried to sleep together when she came back but he wasn't feeling it. Even though it was subtle, I can't believe they got away with that! XD It's one of those shows that definitely finished at the right time, but I wish we would get TV specials or DTV movies from time to time. I wish we could get Teen Titans DTVs too, but with the new YJ cartoon it seems unlikely.

- Saw a spoiler for Korra accidentally. Well, it's not really a spoiler but information about the characters on the show. Don't highlight if you don't wanna know! It seems that Aang's other children (Tenzin's older siblings) are called Kya (named after Katara's mother) and Bumi (named after Aang's friend). Upon seeing this, I'm convinced I'm totally gonna cry all through the first episode. XD Of course, I'm gonna see it later than everyone else so I'll be banning myself from the Internet until I see it.

- Young Justice is back in about a month. IT'S BEEN FOREVER! ;_; I make a case for this show all the time, but seriously, if you haven't seen it yet, now is the best time to catch up! It really is amazing. I thought it would be really weird having Robin as the youngest character, but it's worked out really well! He's super cheeky, I love it! When he saw Artemis (who doesn't know his secret ID) at his school, took a picture with her and said "We'll laugh about this someday", I laughed and squeed at the same time. I didn't think that was possible! Vid is here, start at 0:57 to avoid spoilers! He'll probably be my favourite character by the end, SO PLEASE DON'T KILL HIM OFF! ;_;

- I'm definitely hooked to that Indian serial drama now. Just when I thought no-one could outdo MatsuJun's longing stares of love! XD Speaking of which, I've started watching that drama he's in with Takeuchi Yuko and they're both so cute!

And now, videos! Including Jimmy Kimmel trolling Superbowl watchers, Christian Bale singing something unexpected, dancing dude advert and new Angry Panda ads! :D  )


Jan. 29th, 2012 12:06 am

Young Justice will be back on March the 3rd! :D *weeps* We waited so long! But, not as long as the infamous 9 month waits of Avatar.

Speaking of Avatar, the graphic novel, The Promise part 1, is out now in the US I believe! Do not spoil me, we get it in two weeks from now!!!
