Somebody, stop me. I discovered amazon.co.uk. Which has all these awesome shows I want. Stop me. Please. (Yes, I just might go on British shows binge. Heck, I've done every other country I could).

In other news, I finished KimuTaku's Beautiful Life. Ummm. Yeah. That was cheerful. *hysterical laughter* If you are a sadist who kills puppies with broken glass. Definitely cements my opinion that no way in hell will you get me to watch '1 Litre of Tears.' I mean, I am going to need to finish 'Hello Miss' ASAP now, out of sheer self-preservation or else my face will collapse into a permanent weepy position. Yikes.

In completely unrelated news, according to the wiki article on Daleks, they have appeared in porn. My mind is so boggled by it, I have nothing whatsoever to add to it.

Oh, yes I do. Did I mention we are going to Buenos Aires? Side trip to Uruguay maybe. Any recs for cool things to do there?

I've decided to buy Bushi No Ichibun, last year's movie with Kimura Takuya. Should I get the regular edition or is the limited one worth springing for?

Before leaving this morning, I needed a pick-me up, so I watched a certain scene from ep 6 of Pride. Meeeeep. Still awesome.

Speaking of awesome, I have continued with my watch of Beautiful Life and am now halfway through episode 7. Love it as much as ever.

Rambly thoughts on the eps )

And now on to my other great fictional love of lately: Fruits Basket. Finished volume 6 and had no time to go to bookstore for more, and am suffering from withdrawal.

Wow.

WOW.

This is officially my second favorite jdrama, behind only Pride. (Because no one beats Halu and Aki).

Spoilers through ep 4 )

In other dorama news, [livejournal.com profile] tatterpunk, I found a source for Brand 2000 so hopefully I'll have it soon. EEEE!

And I have continued to read Fruits Basket and I have totally fallen for Kyo now. I can pinpoint the exact moment, actually. It's when he comes home from the first day at school (which was rough for everyone concerned) and he is all 'I was horrible to Tohru, I only say mean things to her' and the Hot Cousin points out that maybe he should be nice at first if he is going to be beating himself up as much as he is doing over not being nice. And Kyo admits he has no idea how to be social and how to interact and Cousin points out that it's more natural for some people than others, but he has to work at it and he'll be good. (Meanwhile Tohru is feeling bad that the 'cat' her favorite from childhood doesn't like her. Awwww).

I am getting the weird vibe that even though it's funny and fluffy, there is going to be some major angst in this one, right? I can just tell.

And speaking of angst, I found a cool MV for Kyo/Tohru from the anime. It gets points (though Iam not sure whether coolness or geekiness points, or both, for being set to a song from Buffy's S6 musical ep).

MV here )

And because I am in a youtube kinda mood, I found a MV for my all-time favorite secondary couple, Xi Men and Xiao You in Meteor Garden. Their equivalents Soujiro and Yuki in Hanadan don't ping my OTP sense very much, but Xi Men and Xiao You? Oh boy. Probably because you really get the sense of his liking her a lot but not allowing himself to go forward.

MV here )

Oh, and my shiny official Goong DVD set shipped early last week. Hopefully I'll get it this week. I wants it, my preciousssss. It's odd. I really really liked Goong when I first watched it, but it's one of the rare dramas where the more time passes, the more I love it.

I had a really long, hard weekend (I worked straight through it, finishing around 5am last night) so when I tell you that despite complete lack of sleep, I am totally looking forward to finally watching more of Beautiful Life in the evening, you know how much I love it.

LOVE.

spoilers through first half of ep 3 )

In other news, to reward self for being productive, I bought a bunch of manga today, including the first two volumes of Fruits Basket (what is it with the name??? It put me off for years.) So far I am about a third of the first volume in and I love it. I’ve only met Tohru (who I’d want to be like when I grow up only I am grown up. She is rather like Miaka in her cheerfulness, only with better cooking abilities, and rather more self-sufficient :D) and Yuki, who I really really like, and Yuki’s dark haired older cousin who he lives with, whose name I am blanking on, who is sex-on-a-stick looking. But, [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, no Kyo yet.

And I finished vol. 13 of Ayashi No Ceres (semi-shirtless intense Toya on the cover? droooool). It was a Toya-less volume and went into necessary but not too 'I am into it' story of Ceres and the Progenitor. But OMG! Toya is back at the end. And I am a girly girl but I cried when Shuro died. Or when Aya missed Toya. Yeah. I was in public, too.

Oh my Gosh. I am crying. It's the end of the first episode of Beautiful Life and I am crying. Not because it's angsty or anything (though voice-overs worry me) but just because...you know. It's so so so perfectly wonderful. The characters, the scenes, the drama. The works.

I HAVE NO WORDS.

You guys.

Oh wow. You know, the way other people feel about Long Vacation? An understated, romantic, character driven drama that just drags you in? That's the way I feel about Beautiful Life. I am so sorry, Kurosagi, but you just moved down to number 3 jdrama spot.

This couldn't get any better if it tried.
