My previous post reminded me of my true manhwa love, 100% Perfect Girl. Together with Sensual Phrase, 100% is my ultimate "take from my cold dead fingers" guilty pleasure. I love the really emo love story (why don't kdrama makers stop adopting Japanese mangas and do their own instead?) and the really really clean and uncluttered art. And so I have come to share some scans of the pretty. Because, in addition to everything else, the manhwa is ridiculously pretty.



I cannot emphasize enough how I really really love uncluttered manga art (see also very different, but equally uncluttered Hot Gimmick).

Quick note, in case you are familiar only with manga - unlike the Japanese version, the Korean one reads from right to left, the way you would with an English-language graphic novel.

Sample 1: They like to have angsty conversations in bed )

Appeal of shoujo tropes in 10 easy panels )

My favorite scene: hurt/comfort by the bucket )

A pervy but worksafe bonus from the epilogue )

In conclusion, I like the way WANN draws clothes )

For some reason, I always picture Joo Ji Hoon as a WANN hero - I have no idea why. Maybe it's because he does icy/repressed/angsty combo so well.

If these scans weren't enough, here is a link to a mv which uses more artwork.

If you are interested, 100% is available at the usual scanlation places but it's also in print and can be found at amazon etc.

I have started a manga which is raising all my feminist hackles. Doesn’t happen very often,* but there it is.

What is it?

Doubt. Doubt is about a very nerdy, plain girl called Ai, who after one humiliation too many, decides to transform herself. She applies to a different high school and meanwhile through strenuous diet and cosmetics and fashion make-over, becomes super hot. In her new school, she sets her eyes on the most popular guy there, Sho.

Now, in itself, while not a super-exciting concept for a manga, it doesn’t come across as super-offensive, yet, here I am ranting about it. Why?

Because it’s an equivalent of a Bratz movie. It is all about the outside, appearances, blending in.

They are bashing Hot Gimmick on the Hanadan comm (someone brought up a comparison between the two) and this is making me cry big elephant sized tears.

I love Hot Gimmick. Yeah, yeah, it might set a bad example for tweenie girls trying to find themselves or what not and give them wrong expectations about relationships and what not, but I don’t caaaaare. (What are impressionable minds doing, reading manga with almost gang rape in it anyway?) It’s my delicious guilty pleasure.

And for the record? I am a Ryoku fan. Yeah, yeah, the boy is a poorly socialized jerk but I don’t have to date him. He amuses me. I don’t care if Hatsumi is sort of compliant and not Tsukushi-like bulldozer. And yeah, Ryoku doesn’t have the character growth Domyouji does. So what? If they were like that, it would be Hanadan 2.

I did write a Ryoku apologia here so all I am going to say is, hey, whether he is bossy and she is weak or not, outwardly, it’s pretty clear who has the emotional whip-hand in that relationship. After all, she could totally leave him and break up with him and he was the one unable to let go. And he was the one going ‘you slept with your brother, I don’t care, I love you, come back to me anyway.’ (Yeah. Adopted brother. Still). He might be all about being in control about little things but only because she lets him :D It’s pretty clear who is more invested in the ‘ship.

Yes, of course I prefer Hanadan. Doesn’t mean Hot Gimmick is bad.

P.S. Now Asuza? The one responsible for the almost-gang-rape? Yeah, fine, brickbats. Ugh.

I have decided that if there ever was a real live scifi city, Tokyo is it.

I am in love.

Pictures of hot men continue to be elusive (my Japanese is nowhere good enough to come up to a complete stranger and go: "excuse me, do you mine posing for me in all your hotness?" My nerve is not good enough either) but other than that, it is all perfect.

This morning started with seeing swarms of people cross and get into Shinjuku station which was amazing. Not as amazing as the rush hour back which was even crazier: literally people so thick you moved where the crowd went. Everyone is so orderly and the train stations are so clean it is unreal. You could probably eat off the floor, though I do not recommend as I am sure someone will faint.

This morning started with that wonderful little staple known as money exchange. Now I know how agents of evil powers feel, as our money was: checked against counterfeit charts, ran thtough a machine, taken all over the bank. Meanwhile, the polite but hassled clerk tried to make small talk even though his English and my Japanese was about even. Aka none. I kept nodding and smiling, hoping I did not just agree to sell a kidney.

We went to Hakone (a nature resort) and ate eggs baked in sulfuric hot springs and took a toy train and a ropeway, but about those later...

I love nature and all, but the coolest thing is the people. Most of my pics are going to be people photos.

People watching continues to be great. Favorite thing this evening was a young couple, he in a sharp suit and a briefcase, holding hands with a girl in jeans capri pants and really casual shirt, They were walking down a large street and it was adorable.

I have decided that Shinjuku is the coolest thing ever. I have never seen so many lights, signs, hawkers, small restaurants, pachinko parlors, and sheer amount of people anywhere. If you are not energized when you are there, you are dead. We went to the "seedy" side too, but I have to say it is the nicest, best lit, most elegant area of that nature I have ever seen. I felt completely safe abd all the ads were so discreet and nicely shot, they could as well have been band ads. There were a lot of ads for host clubs too :P and I took pictures of that as the boys were justifiably yummy. Coolest thing by far in that area was seeing an elderly businessman in a suit walk by with a young, geisha-looking woman on his arm.

Oh, and for those curious? Best place to find hot guys (and gals) to look at? So far, definitely Shibuya. Unless you got $$$, in which case unless those billboards are doctored, Shinjuku is the place to be (there was one for a particular host club, which had ginormous photos of its four "stars" and I started cracking up because one of them was named Tsukasa which is, for me, with my lack of familiarity of Japanese names except from manga anime or doramas, associated with Domyouji, so my first thought was "so THAT is how the family is paying their bills for their lux lifestyle!" :P)

We concluded the lovely day with a really good and fancy meal in a restaurant with a most amazing view. So far, point nad pray method of orderibg is working wonders.

I have seven billion pics of everything so far.

Tomorrow, we go off to Kyoto!

P.S. I bought vol 12 of Hot Gimmick in airport on the flight over and heeeeee. Bad thibg to read in crowded ariport back home. Hellllllo nudity!

I've been counting hours till 9pm and the Veronica Mars ep. Can't wait to see Logan and Veronica interact and spoiler for 2.21 preview )

In other news, I have totally got behind Ban/Himeko in GetBackers. Evil writers, hitting every ship kink I have! When at the end of that three parter, they fight and he beats her soundly, and then when she is lying unconscious he picks her up and puts her down carefully, and her clothes are torn from the fighting so he takes off his shirt to cover her up and I die. And then he walks off, and he says "You can have my life, for however little it's worth but not yet" because he has to protect her blah blah. And he's killed her brother and she hates him but he did it to protect her and they lived together when they were kids for a bit and he takes her antidote bottle next day "as payment for the shirt" and OMG. Total OTP. Even if they never get together in the show.

Also, I am rather amused by the fact that in final volume of Hot Gimmick, Cut for spoilers only catdecember would care about )

And completely unconnected, today's eye-candy/pic spam post is of Kareena Kapoor, one of my favorite Bollywood actresses. While most casual Bolly fans would most likely know her as the shallow, dim Poo from Kabhi Khushi Kabie Gham (a hilarious, delicious, vampy role), she became my favorite by portraying such deiverse and strong characters as a jaded young hooker spending a rainy night with a depressed businessman in Chameli, as a traditional Muslim girl going against her fear-bound community in Dev, a harrowing movie about sectarian violence, as Naaz (a Bangladeshi woman who is smuggled into Pakistan with her family, and falls in love with their smuggler) in Refugee, as an upper-class idealist brightening up the very political Yuva, and above all, as Princess Kaurwaki in Asoka, who is both a warrior and a star-crossed lover, and a supremely confident woman.

So, without much further ado Kareena Kapoor pic spam )

And just because I have them, here are some more pretty pictures of Bolly women:

Lisa Ray, star of Water )

Rani Mukherji, star of Yuva, Black and Hum Tum )

Preity Zinta, star of Veer-Zaara and Kal Ho Na Ho )

Just got back from Iceland which was amazingly beautiful and perfect. We had two glorious days: saw geisers, waterfalls, swam in a geothermal pool, wandered around Reykjavik (and the sun was out for it, too) and flew over Greenland. Perfect.

Iceland pictures behind the cut. Buildings, waterfalls, geysers and horses )

In a crazy, yet typical turn-around, I now like Ryo (the subject of my previous rant, and the main male character of Hot Gimmick, all 10 volumes of it which I read on the plane to Iceland.

Ryo centric thoughts )

Also, last week, I've been slowly (busy busy busy) watching GetBackers. I just finished episode four, in fact. And I love it. GetBackrs thoughts )

Iceland pictures behind the cut. Buildings, waterfalls, geysers and horses )

In a crazy, yet typical turn-around, I now like Ryo (the subject of my previous rant, and the main male character of Hot Gimmick, all 10 volumes of it which I read on the plane to Iceland.

Ryo centric thoughts )

Also, last week, I've been slowly (busy busy busy) watching GetBackers. I just finished episode four, in fact. And I love it. GetBackrs thoughts )
