I have decided that few things in the Star Trek universe make me as happy as Kirk's maaaaaaaaaaaaanpain after having to watch the love of his life be run over by a car for the good of the universe. I want to see this in nu!Trek like burning.

She is a beautiful sweet angel kind to the homeless and owner of some seriously swell hair:



But if she is allowed to live, Nazis take over the world. Sucks for her but yum for me as CUE SOME YUMMY YUMMY MANPAAAAAAIIIIIIN.





Spock and his longshoreman's hat also approve.



But the leads of Koizora weep in horror:



The Universe is lucky Kirk wasn't John Crichton, is all I'm sayin'. Because if that was Aeryn Sun at stake, Nazis would be ruling us all...

Yes, I shall return to dramas shortly. But not yet.

Because I have the attention span of a gnat, I've decided to add another drama to all the ones I am watching (which are BOF, Princess Ja Myung, Cain & Abel, To Get Her, Meteor Garden rewatch, My Boss My Hero, Resurrection, Wish To See You Again and Love Storm). The drama in question? The Japanese drama Akai Ito.

Here is an adorable MV for it.

I have high hopes for it because it's based on a cellphone novel and the last cellphone novel drama I've seen was Koizora which gave us bleached-blond hair, snow babies, quasi-gang-rape, evil exes, dying boys, and every other cheesy thing known to man, woman, or beast.

I have no idea if Akai Ito can live up to that high standard, but I am hoping the hero and heroine will turn out to be siblings. It has to be either that or terminal illness, and terminal illness has already been covered by Koizora...

I have only one thing to say about the scene in the desert with Choi In in ep 3 of Cain and Abel. That was beyond brutal. Oh, man. Ahhh, the joys of a So Ji Sub drama - I'd forgotten. I have no idea of the plot of C&A (I mean, I know the set-up, but I have no idea how it will go) but I sincerely hope he will eventually track down the director and stepmom who ordered this and make them pay. And pay. And pay. Preferably with rusty nails involved. (Side note: I love a good revenge drama: Green Rose, Resurrection, Mawang, A Love to Kill).

I started reading The Gentlemen's Alliance manga by Arina Tanemura.

It's very very shoujo (the art is too cutesy and busy even for me, a tad. I prefer cleaner, sparer lines) but while not deserving of mad love or anything, it's an entertaining manga to read to pass the time.

The plot is deceptively simple (or at least starts out that way and then descends into total awesome oddness). Our heroine, Otomiya Haine, is a 15-year-old former delinquent who now attends an elite private academy. Haine hasn't always had the easiest time (when she was 10, her parents sold her to her present family in exchange for a money loan) but she is currently cheerful, optimistic and determined.

She is also in love (though does not expect anything in return, she is too pragmatic) with the academy's "Emperor" (i.e. class president) and fellow classmate, Togu Shizumasa. I have to give points to the mangaka, because while Haine's reasons for being into Shizumasa are shoujo-type reasons, they are reasons I can buy from a 15-year-old girl. Not only did Haine used to love a fairy tale written by Shizumasa when they both were kids (he won some sort of award and it got published), when she was down and rebellious in her delinquent days, he actually helped her out.

Haine's road to potential love is not smooth, to put it mildly. Not only is her school rather hierarchical, so she is beneath the notice of the student counsel, but also, Shizumasa is already taken...by a guy. Yup, Haine's dream man has a boyfriend.

Of course (and it's not a spoiler, it's all in the first volume), Haine finds out that Shizumasa has no interest in the 'boyfriend' and it's a fake dating relationship to keep people in school off his back. And when Haine offers to be a fake girlfriend instead, he accepts pretty readily, and pretty indifferently.

And that is all in the first couple of volumes before the manga goes into totally CLAMP-worthy territory. Spoilers )

Craziness! I love it.

In other news, I just realized that Koizora is 6 eps but by the end of ep 3 they basically covered everything but Hiro's terminal illness. Are they going to slowly and lovingly wallow in it for the next three eps? Ahhhh...this drama has everything but amnesia.

Also, am totally amused that instead of running off to live in rebel bliss when she gets preggers and her parents aren't keen, she becomes extra responsible around the house and he dyes his hair black, gets a suit, and goes bowing to her father. I approve of the Japanese way :P

Yes, this is the ep with the Great Hair Transformation, wherein Hiro goes from this:



To this:



While simultaneously maintaining his ideal boyfriend vibe.

In today's installment of Koizora we have teen pregnancy, rock concerts, miscarriages, and cancer. And snow babies.

I think we have everything but the kitchen sink in this drama and I am sure the latter will appear in ep 4. Leave some plot for the rest of Japan!

Koizora ep 3 caps and comments: the craziness continues )

Not connected to anything of the above but I've been listening to this song all morning:



Yes, I confess. Despite my dislike for JE and their bands, TOKIO is the only exception. So far, I've liked every song of theirs I've ever come across. It helps because they are pretty close to my concept of what a band is supposed to be: playing their own instruments, singing on-key, and looking over 12. Isn't that rather un-Johnnylike? :) I am not big on elaborate staging and floorshows and on-stage fanservice never was my thing so if that is the only thing a band has going for it, I am going to check out (and if they have a lot of it during singing, I am going to check out anyway, because so not my thing). I mean, it's amusing to watch MatsuJun juggle torches in a shiny outfit while performing, but my concept of what I consider music it is not.

And I continue my intellectual descent with episode 2 of Koizora, which features almost-gang-rape, unprotected teen sex, and more bleached hair.

I don't even have the excuse of ogling Nagase Tomoya with this one. I mean, the only strong impulse Hiro evokes in me is to take him to an all-you-can-eat buffet and lock him there.

And now, without much further ado, we proceed to summarize )

I have ep 3 subbed too, but I need a break before my brain shrivels and dies. Look, I even made an icon for it! I need to stop the madness...

I started the jdrama Koizora.

Ahahahahahahahaha. It's a perfect follow-up to Utahime. If Utahime was complex, nuanced, and heart-breaking, Koizora is deliciously trashy and, while trying for heart-breaking, fails miserably and instead brings joy to yours truly.

Koizora is based on a popular cell-phone novel (WTF) and movie of the same name. It follows true love of a 16-year-old girl named Mika who falls for a bad boy with bleached hair and mysterious illness. (Grand husband prospect, that). Kisses, miscarriages, and beanies of doom follow. I repeat: Ahahahahaha.

It's the perfect drama for me, with true teen romance, voiceovers of fake profundity, belief that matching cell-phone straps mean true love, and very very pretty cinematography. The lead actress looks a bit like a Japanese Claire Danes and the lead actor needs to eat and stop using hair bleach.

I confess I am rooting for the other guy, who is nice and quiet and actually decent to her, and has no bleached hair or piercings even if he doesn't play a guitar soulfully in the setting sun. But that latter is hardly a marketable skill, is it?

Summary in caps of ep 1: bleached hair, kisses, and fake profundity and voiceovers of doom galore )
