dangermousie: (FY: Tamahome red by jadeicons)
I have just bought Samurai Champloo.

Expect much SQUEEing soon.

And I have this crazy urge to continue rewatching Fushigi Yuugi (my rewatch is right before the Suzuku warriors set out to do the summoning and everything goes to hell. I don't want Tamahome's awesome family to buy it).

Btw, Tamahome? Still my anime boyfriend.

I tried Basilisk anime btw, and was disappointed. I didn't care for the colors and it was just fighting without sparkle or humor. And the heroine annoyed me. Oh well, win some lose some.

OK, anime fans. Should I watch Samurai Champloo, Nana (anime) or Trinity Blood?. I am in the mood for something heroic, on the romantic side.

Or should I stick with Bleach which is OK but hasn't grabbed me yet?

Also, on the yay note, first ep of Snow Queen is subbed now. if you want to watch Huyk Bin make you swoon, go watch. On the less fun sub news front, the last three eps of Tokyo Juliet are still unsubbed. I know subbers have lives and am grateful to them for subbing but I really really want my Liang/Sui fix :(

GRRRR.

I finished Absolute Boyfriend ("Zettai Kareshi") and now I am crying. General unspecific AB spoilers )

OTOH, volumes 6 and 7 of Hana Kimi are an adorable, adorable delight. Can I have a Sano? Pretty please? I love the bit where she keeps doing 'sleepovers' in his bed. Poor guy! And he hugs her. AWWWW. Mizuki really is clueless. But the bit in the onsen! When they are both nekkid and he bolts because he is fixating on the little skin he sees above the steam and OMG. Boy must have crazy self-control. For those who are wondering, Hana Kimi is an adorable manga, soon to be dorama about Mizuki, a girl who cross-dresses as a boy to join an all-boys school which her idol Izumi Sano (she is into high jump) goes to. They end up being roomies and he falls for her but he can't let her know he knows she is a girl and she can't let him know her gender and complications and fluff and angst ensues blah blah.

And in honor of HK, I bring you pictures from the coming-soon t-drama adaptation. I have to confess I am a bit puzzled by the people at soompi. They are saying Ella (who plays Mizuki) looks too boyish. WTF? She is supposed to be able to pass for a boy. Argh.

Sano and Mizuki:



More HK pics )

And because I plan to start my watch of Kurosagi shortly, some anticipatory picspam:

Oooooh, intense )

And a bit of Kame/leading lady in TKnK cuteness, just because.

Cuteness and a bit of FY fantasy casting )

And hey, because this is such a mishmash of a post, more Rurouni Kenshin badfic summaries from ff.net.

True Horror )

And a bit on ep 9 of Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake. KMSD is LOVE )

dangermousie: (Kenshin: Misao/Aoshi by roninhonor)
Misao was fine being a normal, slightly rich girl. Why'd she have to end up living with pirates and have the crulest captain the world has ever known Shinomori Aoshi. [AxM]

This summary makes my life worth living.

GLEE!!!

If this was a real crack!fic as opposed to what it unfortunately is, I would KILL to read it.

*uses her Aoshi/Misao icon*

I foresee a big badfic post coming up.

For those who have no idea what I am talking about, this is a fic which concerns two of the characters in Rurouni Kenshin, a manga/anime set in 1870s Japan. YES. With Aoshi being a one-time leader of a ninja clan (before various complicated things that constitute a chunk of the anime intervene), and Misao is a ninja, who is also child of a previous leader, who has the world's biggest thing for Aoshi. And she was sort of brought up by him etc etc etc. But seriously. Just thinking about this makes me GLEE. I mean, imagining Aoshi as a pirate? AOSHI? Is there a downside? :P Also, if Misao is a captive, this will be the first time it's a pirate leader who is taken advantage of by a captive.

dangermousie: (Anime: Ouran by sinfulintention)
I've finally watched all the episodes of Ouran High School Host Club. I stopped somewhere after 19 and then got the whole series but jumped straight to 26, the last one. But now I've caught them all.

I think it's certainly going into my Top 5 anime so far. Ouran is so cool, even Mr. Mousie enjoyed the off-the-wall humor. (For the record? Mr. Mousie loves anime. But shoujo? Not his bag). I've written about it beforehand, but still, does an extra pimp ever hurt? Nah.

Ouran (which is funny and adorable anyway but is a total trip if you've ever seen much anime or read manga, or heck, even been in a fandom of any sort) involves our heroine, Haruhi, a scholarship student at a glitsy, ritzy high school, who, through a hilarious set of circumstances, ends up working as a host with the Ouran Host Club to pay off a debt. Everyone in school with the exception of club members, thinks Haruhi is a guy and Haruhi is uber popular as a femmy, 'natural' type of boy. Most of the anime is centered around Haruhi's interactions with the club members, who the pragmatic, prosaic Haruhi views as a bunch of loons. It's really the hosts (the drama-queen Tamaki (ergo my current lj name tag), the Machiavellian Kyouya, the trouble-making twins Kaoru and Hikaru, Mori, the quiet reserved one and Honey, who is the oldest, but acts like a small kid) who make the anime for me, though Haruhi is a really cool heroine: very un-gender conscious, self-reliant, and utterly immune to the hosts' lunacy and charm.

The show mocks (but affectionately) so many fandom and shoujo stereotypes: the fangirl love for slash and pretty gay boys, school rivalry, even class and gender issues. There s a lot of humor and a bit of angst (some of the later episodes totally made me sniffle a bit because I am easy), a ship or two *waves Tamaki/Haruhi 4evah flag* and some amazing cleverness (there is an episode later in the show which is entirely a reimagining of Alice in Wonderland). It's chock-full of cool characters. It's rare for me to have more than one or two favorite characters in an anime, but here, while Tamaki is my favorite, most of the hosts are just irresistable and so is Haruhi. Oh, and there are tributes to things like Utena and RahXephon. How can one not love it?

Thoughts on the later eps, with spoilers. Yup, I wrote sorta serious meta on Ouran. )
