I loved Downloaded. The show keeps getting better and better.

Thoughts beneath the cut )

Also, Husband has been watching Last Exile and all of a sudden it's really interesting, what with Alex's torture (forcing him to tell the truth with truth serum to the woman who killed his wife and tying him up with thorns???) and Dio's lobotomy and Mullen's death. So angsty (I hate Delphine) and so good. Also, love messed up, weird, sweet Dio who (until lobotomy) remained nice and human despite the odds. And I love Luciola finally snapping and taking on Delphine's men and getting Dio away. It's a beautiful scene when he fights them. It's just the main characters don't interest me too much. Claus and Lavvie are nice and dull. Love the rest though.

1. Last Exile is totally boring me. I went from watching it while reading to taking a bath while Husband watches it. He just summarizes it all for me. But it severely appeals to him so it makes me happy as must make up for his having to a. drag me to bed at 3:30am yesterday from watching Meteor Garden (me: I'll come to bed soon, I promise. him: I know you, you'll watch it till 7 am) and b. having to, in consequence, to put up with me watching it today.

2. Finding good anime fanfic is impossible. If you like weird, uncanonical slash pairings, you can find good fic actually. But look for normal Hana Yori Dango fic? Or Fushigi Yuugi? Or MARS? Or Escaflowne? Or Trigun? Give it up. In the best case scenario, you are going to get badly spelled Doumyouji/Tsukushi sex or how it's Van and Hitomi turning into R&J. In the worst case scenario? Let's just say that it makes Harry Potter mpreg seem nice. Surely I can't be the only grown-up person who likes any of these and likes fic. But hey, it's still better than finding Meteor Garden fic. Because there isn't any. Do I have to write my own? I want to read DMS/SC fic. Now. Argh.

3. I have a horrible temptation to write some Shi-Mein/Shiao You fic. Or (depending on the spelling) Xi Men/Xiao You fic. Heck, I am not even even sure how to spell their names but I don't care, because have shocked myself by becoming a rabid shipper for a ship almost no one else seems to care about one way or another (people don't dislike it, it's just there is nothing about it I can find, not in English, at least). Because there simply isn't any fic out there, good bad or indifferent. I think I have just found myself a shipper for the most obscure ship ever. I am actually even going to watch Meteor Rain because it has a vignette dealing with them. And I want to find out what happened to their equivalents in the manga. Also, shipping for a ship who does not end up together is making me kinda grouchy. She moves to Canada and he mopes for a bit and goes back to his old ways does not a happy Dangermousie make, realism be damned. The ending in Meteor Rain re: that storyline better be open ended, is all I am going to say.

4. Jackie on Veronica Mars. I love the girl. She is not this season's Logan (a hated character we begin to like), she is this season's Veronica. Someone who is shallow and useless but grows and matures under pressure. After all, watching the show with Veronica 1.0, shallow, shy, Lilly-follower, lover of puppies and kittens and ditcher of unpopular people, would be deadly dull. Yay Jackie! You are cooler than status quo Veronica, actually.

5. Lee and Dee: pretty together. Happy and nice together. Good for them, but not very exciting to watch. So I am OK with them being the eternal ship as long as they don't spend too much time on them.

6. I am still obsessed with Fushigi Yuugi. I have the hots for a 17-year-old martial genius from a book world patterned on Ancient China, which is kinda disturbing. But I can't help it. I also have an urge to be immature and write Miaka+Tamahome=4evr on my notebooks. Except I don't have any notebooks any more. Also, Trigun is love (and peace, I suppose).

7. I have the horrifying thought that I already ran through Hollywood and Bollywood movies and now have moved on to Asian entertainment (it certainly helps that the world is full of pretty men of every ethnicity), so what shall I do when I run through that? I don't think Namibia makes that many films.

8. Bollywood is good. Also full of eye candy.

Meteor Garden just got really interesting for me because it veered off from the anime so I have no idea what's coming. Yessss (the reason they did that is because both were in production when manga was still running and MG was done later than the anime so they had more stuff to go on).

I loved SC's confrontation with DMS' evil mom: calling her freaking old witch was great but my fave was her retort "if your son is so precious, why don't you put a leash on him and tie him up at home." Heeeee. I also oved F3 telling her she if she really wants to spite his mother, she should date DMS. They are good friends to him.

And then of course DMS' mother bought out her apartment and had her thrown out on the street and she ends up wandering the streets, no sure what to do (hint: call DMS and ask for a loan :P). I do love her practicality, she is all "am I really going to sleep on the street? Well, I guess I'll find out."

Longish thoughts, with a lot of awwwwws )

In other news, I saw 7 eps of Last Exile and I got kinda bored. None of the characters interest me much, as it's more plot heavy than character heavy. Granted, it took me 18 eps to get into HYD but that had weird artwork and was a show that was twice as long. OTOH, Husband really loves it.

ETA: Watched some more MG and OMG, Shi Mein and SC's friend having a fake date to show DMS and SC the way? Hilarious. I do love the fact that the two secondary F4s really really genuinely like women. Yeah, that also makes them playboys, but a relationship with someone like Shi Mein would be a lot more enjoyable while it lasted (though of course DMS will do anything to keep the girl and love her forever, it's so much more peaceful without constant fighting). The whole set-up with candles and flowers etc that got "misedelivered?" ROFL. And DMS going "oh, I never gave you flowers, so here, have those" is also hilarious. So is their atrocious dancing. They are suuuuch oddballs. Of course, it ends up in a huge fight (what else is new) but that's good because it saves them from the Evil Mother who's just gotten back. Though he does seem to be willing with her on fool's errands to see if her friend is being seduced and he is kinda consistantly (and amusingly) trying to fatten her up because she is too skinny and he wants to take care of her, and he feeds her from his fork. Seriously, they are nutters. Also, I've decided I want to have a batty old housekeeper like Auntie Jade. "I like you, SC, because DMS used to get into a lot of trouble when he was younger and the family got distant and get into fights every day and so he just needed someone to stand their ground with him and pay attention. Soyou totally have to sleep with him and have his baby and then his mother will shut up." Seriously, I want a batty relative like that.

Husband and I watched the first two episodes of Last Exile. I am very intrigued (if also a tad confused, but pleasantly so). I like Claus and Lavvie which are sort of like a non-Jedi version of Luke of very early SW in many ways. Am interested in meeting Alex, if he is anything like what he looks on the cover (whoa!). If nothing else, the graphics and design are amazing.

Re: Meteor Garden. I am such a dope. I totally rewatched DMS getting beat up by bad guys to save SC scene. For an angst whore like me, this is like crack. And I love that SC and DMS are even fighting in his sickroom :P But it's a friendly kinda fighting and she is crying and freaking out over him "I thought you wouldn't come and save me after all those things I said and yet you still came, idiot" and it's adorable because he tells her not to rub her eyes as she is already ugly enough and they are grinning and I am such a sap. Plus, couple where both parties are virgins? Heh.

Long thoughts on parts 9 and 10, with a spoilery comment on a later part and a most random Bollywood reference )

In other news, I have been thinking of my favorite show of all time, Farscape, and how brilliant the writing was.

Sample:

John Crichton: Furlow, is it always about the money?
Furlow: Is there anything else? I mean, how much sex can you have?
John Crichton: I don't know, I haven't maxed out yet.

More Quotes. Farscape spoilers, of course )

And just because I mentioned it in my Meteor Garden write-up, here is the English translation of the lyrics of Tadap Tadap, the angstiest ever Bollywood song. Translation courtesy of BollyWHAT. When the (male) singer sings this, I just...guuuuuh.

Having given me a body of clay, why did you make my heart with glass? )
