I have finally had a chance to check out the first episode of a liveaction take on one of my all-time favorite mangas, Ouran High School Host Club and I am in love in love in love in love in love.



Somehow they managed to transfer the cracky, cheeky, post-modern metaish, with a hidden heart vibe of the manga (and the awesome anime. It was the only shoujo anime Mr. Mousie ever liked).

The story, such as it is, is about Haruhi, a brilliant scholarship student in a ritzy school. Haruhi is a girl but has little interest in gender norms - she wears a male uniform as more comfortable and has her hair chopped short (I am not getting into long meta again but I really like this drama's take on gender). Through a hilarious set of circumstances, Haruhi ends up working as a host with the Ouran High School Host Club in order to pay a debt. The hosts are the only ones who know she's a girl and Haruhi is very popular with the ladies as a femmy type of boy. Haruhi is pragmatic and no-nonsense and is both puzzled and amused (and occasionally exasperated and always unimpressed) by her fellow hosts, especially by the leader, Tamaki, is a diva and a drama queen and totally lacking in street smarts and is the sweetest, kindest, loveliest person. Needless to say, Haruhi/Tamaki is my (and the manga's) OTP.

If you are looking for realistic exploration of class differences or low-key acting, stay away! It you want a funny, endearing, irrestible bit of fun, come right in!

Caps and thoughts ep 1 )

So yes, a total adoration. I have no idea how much of it is because I am so familiar with the story (i.e. I can't tell if there are any narrative gaps because I know the story backwards, and I come into it already loving the gang) but I do think it's really good. I will probably not even bother waiting for subs any more because I can follow raws (Darksmurf does fast and decent subs btw).

In conclusion, have a shippy anime MV, mainly because I adore the song:

OK, livejournal won't let me post long entries. They are still working out bugs and long entries do not work yet.

So, if you want to read my impressions of the first episode of liveaction Ouran High School Host Club, go to my dreamwidth.

If you are a LJ member, you can comment there too (I have anon commenting enabled as well). I'll attempt to properly crosspost it later, but for now this is what I got.

Just a general notice: everything I post here is crossposted at http://dangermousie.dreamwidth.org

So if LJ is down or glitchy or slow, you can go there to hang out with moi :P

ETA: I can post long posts if I use Safari and mobile version of LJ through email, it seems.

via both dreamwidth and LJarchive and having problems with both (DW gives up after numerous attempts and LJArchive eventually gives me error). I take it this is because LJ is still being fixed. Anyone else having the same issues?

I just want to give notice that in my Ouran post I have a two-line spoiler about the shippy outcome of the manga. I tried to put it in spoiler codes, but what with LJ screwing up and me being able to post only through email, it somehow didn't come through. I can't edit because post is too large and I get 500 or 503 Error. Apologies!

If you want to read it with spoiler code in place, go to http://dangermousie.dreamwidth.org because there it is blacked out.

Ummm, I am kinda obsessed with Ikemen Desu Ne. They took all the parts of YAB that I adored and seemed to fix a lot of the parts I found problematic. Now watch me marathon first three eps (first ep alone is close to two hours!!!) as my pile of unwatched kdramas from last week gets longer.

Comments caps and MV of the drama, first ep )
