Yet more screencaps from Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru.



Btw, should I continue to cap these or is it getting to 'eyes glazed over' territory?

OK, I am totally in love with Kimi Wa Petto.

Like, I missed my stop because of it! And had to get off and run to the train going to the opposite direction.

No, I am not bipolarly flip-flapping and discovering the love of that drama in me. It’s just I started the manga version (in the US, translated to ‘Tramps Like Us’).

EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

So good.

So freaking good.

It’s funny, because I gave up on the drama midway through, but this is total love. What is the difference?

1. Sumire. I never realized it before but I didn’t care for the Sumire actress at all (OTOH, MatsuJun was perfect Momo). She just really grated on me, and I thought it was the character, but after reading the manga, where I really like her, nope it’s the actress. Her vibe didn’t work for me. Perhaps because in the drama, Sumire came across frigid (not sexually, but emotionally) to a crippling degree, and dorky!emotionally!stunted which just didn’t work for me. Sumire in the manga has ostensibly the same traits: intelligence, reserve, impatience with fools, loneliness, but she just gives off a much more (to me) neat vibe: sort of a tough/rough girl, (on the outside), weary. Makes me think of Barbie Xsu from Meteor Garden only way older and with no bf :)

2. There are little changes, but they all make the manga something that keeps my attention and also doesn’t trigger my ‘squick’ factor the way the drama did: it’s much more clear that Momo isn’t weak-spined or submissive, just very very odd. In fact, the thing that drove me nuts in the drama was the emphasis on the ‘pet’ thing (through the constant presence of that atrocious psychologist) but here it’s not the same vibe. Somehow, it feels more equal. Especially since you get Momo’s thoughts which make it clear that he is not a push-over, just someone who likes her (in whatever capacity) and doesn’t mind giving her what she needs. There isn’t the same power imbalance at all. My fave scene is actually when she gets home totally wasted and is all, ‘I feel so good, I can even do it with you’ to Momo and he tells her ‘Not tonight’ and when she asks ‘when?’ he replies that ‘when you can call me by my real name.’ And she mumbles ‘your name is Momo’ and passes out and he mutters ‘No, Sumire. That’s my pet name. Which means in the morning I’ll go back to being your pet. So I think we should wait.’ Or something to that effect. Mmmmm. I can just imagine MatsuJun saying that in KwP. *thud*

3. Sumire’s love life. I wish they kept the scuzzy guy she went out for a bit and had sex with and then it didn’t work out. The whole casual hook-up thing was…somehow made mer seem both tougher and more functional. And the whole vibe with the guy she is crushing on is so much better in the manga: for one, because he is no prince charming but someone she lost her ‘v’ too, when he was engaged to someone else, no less! Plus, the whole attitude to sex is more ‘rough’ in the manga, like Sumire waking up next to Momo early on and looking in the trash bin to see if they did the deed. Or Momo saying that his landlord told him he’d forgive the rent if he had sex with him. He says that in the drama, too, but in the manga he continues that he was ‘Oh, OK.’ But then he found out he had to be on top and thought it was too much :P I think that would be a bit risque for Japanese TV though.

Anyway, I really love the manga. I suppose once I finish I might try giving the drama another chance.

And on that note, I bring you some caps from Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru



Yes, I am going to hell and yes, I am shipping them:

Mmmmm…keep it in the family )

Btw, Mr. Mousie wins at life. He came home as I was starting up Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru. His reaction to my comment 'it's OK [you came home late], I am watching the incest movie' was an amused 'of course.' And then I told him the summary and his reaction: 'It's twincest now?' Heh. When I went 'you know the term?' his response was 'you use it all the time.' LOL. LOL.

Anyway, this is a roundabout way to bring you screencaps from the first 15 minutes of the movie. It's such an incredibly pretty movie. And so far, I reallt like it. And oddly, because the whole 'twins in love with each other' is so disturbing as an abstract concept, the movie just comes across as sweet so far (maybe I am just a goner for serious, brainy intense guy pining for cheerful, not as bright girl, in whatever form? Or because the actors are obviously not siblings? Who knows, but my squick factor has not been pinged yet).

So here are some screencaps. Gee, do you think they are MatsuJun-centric? Ya think?

I was going to upload more Japan pictures. I was going to write up more on Sapuri (finished ep 3, and yes, still super wonderful. When Yuya tagged along on Minami and Eita's quasi-date because he didn't even realize he was jealous? Heeee. I actually like Eita now, now).

I was going to do a lot of things, actually.

But none of it happened because I dled and joined Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru and am about to start on it, even though it's after midnight.

Yup. It's Matsumoto Jun's and Nana Eikura's romantic movie. Based on a manga.

I mean look at this MV below. Sweet young love, right?

Right. Except for the minor fact of the two of them playing twins (the title translates into 'I am in love with my little sister.') Oh Japanese entertainment, never change.



This aside, just one brief MV and my mad MatsuJun love is back. It's funny, because objectively he is not in the least good-looking, but the sheer charisma he has makes you not notice it at all and just find him hot regardless. Plus, that intensity. And I love his hair in this.

I need Hanadan movie yesterday.

Is MatsuJun specializing in manga roles? Shin in Gokusen, Domyouji in Hanadan, this, and I know Bambino is based on a manga too.

This morning continues pretty good: the sky is shinily blue, I am wearing my favorite sweater/skirt combo (corded, form-fitting turtleneck of black-gray-pale pink and down to the ground a-line skirt, dark brown with a few thick, roughly patterned black/gray/pale pink stripes). Plus my favorite black boots, and I got complimented on my looks this morning by metro guys :D

I think I am now in that point in my drama cycle, where I madly crave jdrama (just as a few months ago I was in kdrama cycle, and before that twdrama). So a lot of this are rambles about potential candidates.

Anyway. Since this is long, varied, and rather rambly, I am going to cut, to spare the flist.
