I am so your bitch. In a sense of being a shippery weathervane, and in loving everything you throw at me with the exception of quadrangle of doom and Fat!Lee and Gaius Jesus Baltar.
I bring you spoilery pics from some upcoming ep (3.17) and they are just so shiny. ( Read more... )
In other news, spent some time browsing manga in Borders. Yum. Did you know that the manga on which Devil Beside You
is based has been licensed? They had volumes of it there (called Devils do Exist
). I flipped through it and very cute. I can see why they picked Mike He as the lead because the manga hero is yummy. (Though once again, proving that manga hairstyles work only in manga).
I have also flipped through Tramps Like Us
(the manga on which Kimi Wa Petto,
which I so need to finish stat, is based). You know what is so weird? The casting people are scary as the drawings of Sumire and Momo look a lot like MatsuJun and Kyoko. Eeeek! Though the way the author draws the mouths (very lush) makes it look almost Korean-manhwa style.
Speaking of Korean manhwa, I flipped through the first volume of Goong
(yeah, I read scanlations earlier but it's different seeing it in print). It's delightful (and I can see why they cast Joo Ji Hoon as manga!Shin=uber!hot) but I prefer the drama. It's more nuanced somehow, more complicated (like Mars drama v. Mars manga). This made me think about Snow Drop
and the discussion vierran45
and I had about the casting for this, if it ever got turned into drama. JJH would make a totally perfect lead in that one (though I might be biased because heeee, want to see him as a nude model). OK, this is really stream of consciousness.
I also flipped through the third volume of Absolute Boyfriend
, which I of course love. Read it before and all, but so funny and off the wall and hot. I think it should totally be made into a twdrama (it has a twdrama cracky vibe) and Mike He should play Night (because hello! Inhumanly gorgeous android) and Joe Cheng should play Souji, the nerdy-yet-hot next door neighbor who is in love with the heroine. And Ariel Lin should play the lead. Because that way they both have psycho chemistry with her and Mike He could have another angsty ending and there will be Mike He/Ariel Lin make-out scenes and the whole thought of this is just filling me with glee. Not that it will ever happen, but whatever.
In other news, I've been rewatching Hanadan's
ep 4 and eee! I love Yuki and Makino being all girly, dissecting what happened with Rui. And I love Soujiro being all hot and speaking about love and I am totally embarassed but giggling about Domyouji in the cafeteria scene and ( cut for unspoiled speculation )
I have also watched a bit of Smiling Pasta
(the very beginning, as I watched the first eps so long ago) and yup, still delightful. And finished ep 9 of Loveholic
, and as predicted, there is more dooooom. ( Ep 9 spoilers )
