(Thanks for the heads-up, [livejournal.com profile] valkyriesailor!)

Kenshin, about a former killer during the Bakumatsu, who gives up killing and tries to settle down afterwards, was one of my first animes and I used to be obsessed with it. Mr. Mousie and I spent many happy hours devouring the anime. (Just click on my 'kenshin' tag for way too many posts).

And apparently, there is a live-action coming out and the trailer looks fantastic!



Yessss! I checked the cast list and they have Kaoru and Megumi and Sano. Woo-hoo! But no Aoshi? :(

Perhaps inspired by my new fascination with the JIN drama, I decided to check out Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto which is a fantasy anime set in the same era (after all, I'd already seen both Rurouni Kenshin and Peacemaker Kurogane).

The set-up: The series is set in the Bakumatsu era, with the Shogunate being in its final years, and war fast approaching. When Akizuki Yōjirō, a dark and mysterious mercenary, nears something supernatural with some kind of importance to him, the ornament on the end of his sword hilt waves in its direction, his eyes glow mysteriously, and he is driven to go after it. He comes across a traveling theater group who is out for revenge for the killing of the parents of the group's leader, and whose mysterious playwright likes to secretly help along events of history. Yōjirō joins them to lend them his skill against their enemies, while dark conspiracy continues to follow behind him.

Hopefully it will be good.

Baby Mousie has been a good wee girl today in her little pink outfit, complete with mob cap, socks and mittens - she was out for almost four hours with us - we went for a really long walk, and to a street festival (where we obtained pocky and tea), and to see the cherry blossoms (because of the festival nearby where there were a lot of cosplayers, we saw Kenshin chatting to Kakashi around there - a bit bizarre. Mr. Mousie and I got into a discussion who'd win in a fight between them), and capped it off with dinner in a noodles/sushi place, and she behaved beautifully throughout. I did, at one point, had to feed her from a bottle while pushing a baby carriage at the same time. It was a little surreal and made me laugh a lot and lose my concentration sometime :)

In other news, I found these two caps from upcoming jdrama Smile.





Mmmm, looks pretty! Also, I am glad that Matsumoto Jun looks like he's been eating lately. Thank you, TPTB.

I’ve started reading Fruits Basket again and I am at the point where I am literally crying and not from sadness but from rage of being unable to go into the manga and choke Akito. Cut for Haru and Rin spoilers )

Seriously. While I hate Akito the most for what he did to Kyo and Yuki (especially Kyo), hating him for what he did to Rin and Haru comes a close second. And Hatori third and Kureno fourth, and Kisa fifth. Oh whatever. I just hate Akito. Shigure is INSANE for having a thing for Akito. Seriously cuckoo nuts. I am very unhappy Akito got to live at the end without being murdered in a gruesome fashion.

I’ve also been looking for some Haru/Rin fanfic (and I found some decent ones! This is my favorite one. This one is also good. This one is an awesome collection of drabbles, some of which are AU because it was written before FB ended, but still super awesome). While Kyo/Tohru is THE otp for me in FB, Rin/Haru comes close. The only thing I like more than bubbly girl and messed up boy, is the strong, stubborn messed up girl, trying desperately to protect the awesome, good guy she is in love with and breaking his heart in the process. *stabs Akito in the face*

I also did find a Rin/Kagura femmeslash fic. Bwaaaah? I don't mind people writing UC pairing fics, even if the fic is against one of my fave OTPs but how do you get those characters to that point? Fine, Rin I can see doing anything if she thought she had to (hell, she offered to sleep with Shigure in exchange for breaking the curse info, so she could free Haru) but Kagura? Bwaaaaah?

I am nostalgic about GetBackers lately. (Is the manga completed btw?) It’s one of those awesome animes that is really a perfect combo of everything: fighting and ships, angst and humor. Complicated plots and silly side stories. And awesome awesome characters. Seriously, this is one of those animes which just crawls with characters I love. Snarky, cynical, yet deeply decent Ban is totally my favorite (main reason I want to get the manga is because it has a lot more of his backstory) and Shido and Kazuki are tied for second, Shido with his completely reserved demeanor and the genuinely awesome and sweet Kazuki. But I adore most of the main and seconday characters more or less (Ginji is the exception. I like him OK, but I never found him interesting per se. He is too sunny and Polyannaish for me. Ginji-Ban interaction is totally awesome though and while I don’t, myself, I can totally see why people slash them). And it has some awesome women: Himiko is tough as nails and sorta borderline anti-heroine antagonist (and was antagonist when the story started) and the gentle, unworldly Madoka who totally has uber-tough Shido wrapped around her finger. And Hevn who is pretty tough and clever herself and cheerful Natsumi.

And the ships are awesome too. Ban and Himiko pushes ALL my buttons. As in they grew up together for a bit, and now she hates him and wants to kill him for the death of her brother but he is all about protecting her, and he covers her with his shirt when her own is torn, and the thought of her in danger is enough to stop him in the middle of any fight and she is just so confused because she knows he killed her brother but every time she sees him, he is this awesome guy and…seriously. AWESOME. Actually, she might be the best fighter of the bunch, because even though her poisons might not be as effective as the powers of some of the others (though they are fearsome enough) her greatest power? Ban, arguably the best fighter of the bunch, will totally come and rip apart anyone who tries to harm her :D

And Shido/Madoka? *dies* He is taciturn and doesn’t know how to deal with people and is all alone and she is pure and good and innocent and he is wrapped around her little finger and she sees him as good and he’d die for her and…eeeee!

And Kazu/Juubei, one of my rare slash ships, but Kazu is so sweet and loyal and generous and Juubei is misguidedly loyal and thickheaded and they literally override reality to save each other. *sigh*

I really should do a list of my fave anime ships.

P.S. Oooh, this is a cute Shido/Madoka story with all the main GB cast thrown in.

I’ve also been looking for good Aoshi/Misao fic (from Rurouni Kenshin). Aoshi is my fave character in RK aside from Kenshin himself. Of course, according to Mr. Mousie, I remind him of Misao in the cheerful hyperactivity, so does that mean I want to read self-insertion fic? Hmmm…is Mr. Mousie like Aoshi? Wll, he’s reserved, and believes in doing one's duty and about 11 feet taller than me, but hopefully he isn’t rampaging around the city with short swords…Heh.

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.

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.

So, after a measly break of two months, I've restarted my Veronica Mars rewatch, which I abandoned temporarily before getting to 'Kanes and Abel.' Perfect timing as now I have S2 so can watch at a stretch.

I haven't finished rewatching the ep so far, but what I find interesting is that for an ep that is pretty low on my rewatch list (it's a solid ep, but not a favorite), it really deals with a lot of themes so prevalent and crucial in the VM universe. K&A is Veronica's lowest moral point IMO. I find her not mentioning to Amelia that her father is dying, in order to get her way and solve Lilly's murder, quite despicable. Probably the worst (morally) thing she's done. This ep showcases both Veronica's flaws and darkness (that is a messed up girl) and her obsession levels. And in the ep mystery, we return yet again to the theme of parents and children, especially fathers and children, that is so central in the VM universe. We deal with flawed but loving parent in this case (Hamilton Cho's father), a sort of in the middle of continuum between the amazing Daddy Keith, and dreadful enough to be in a dorama Aaron. Next up, 'Weapons of Class Destruction' and unless the aliens abduct me tonight, I am getting to it no matter what. I still remember my screaming at that Camelot kiss. I said that I've seen the spinning camera during a clinch mainly in Bollywood and doramas (and it's my favorite thing), but the Camelot kiss is the exception, as they do that there too, and it really adds to the swept in the moment, passionate feel.

Also, Battlestar Galactica S3 promo pics came out. To see all the pics, go here, but I've posted a few behind cut, with comments on them.

I've started my watch of ep 9 of Tokyo Juliet (it's subbed up to 10 now) and OMG. More angst! Yay! This is sick of me, but I find Liang by far the prettiest when he angsts. He does it so well.

And because you can never have too much hotness in a single post, behind the cut is a pic I stole from [livejournal.com profile] je12_vz09, of Matsumoto Jun, Domyouji in Hana Yori Dango and Shin in Gokusen

Enter at your own peril as worksafe but still unbearable hotness is behind cut )

Also, I saw a plushie of Kenshin (!!!!) at Borders yesterday, plushy scar and sword included. You have no idea how hard it was to resist buying it.

So, after a measly break of two months, I've restarted my Veronica Mars rewatch, which I abandoned temporarily before getting to 'Kanes and Abel.' Perfect timing as now I have S2 so can watch at a stretch.

I haven't finished rewatching the ep so far, but what I find interesting is that for an ep that is pretty low on my rewatch list (it's a solid ep, but not a favorite), it really deals with a lot of themes so prevalent and crucial in the VM universe. K&A is Veronica's lowest moral point IMO. I find her not mentioning to Amelia that her father is dying, in order to get her way and solve Lilly's murder, quite despicable. Probably the worst (morally) thing she's done. This ep showcases both Veronica's flaws and darkness (that is a messed up girl) and her obsession levels. And in the ep mystery, we return yet again to the theme of parents and children, especially fathers and children, that is so central in the VM universe.
