dangermousie: (Yamapi cake by ami_kun)
First off, I have to rec [livejournal.com profile] calledinvain's Kurosagi's Five futures fic. It's one of the futures and it's amazing and angsty and happy and perfect and is a bit of a Hanadan crossover.

I have finished ep 2 of ProDai and it is seriously

the. cutest. thing. ever.

It's going into my top 10 jdramas for sure and is my favorite drama of the spring season by leaps and bound (yes, even over Witch Yoo Hee).

There is not a single thing I don't love about it, except for the fact that I can't gorge on all the eps right away.

Also, Yamapi? So. freaking. awesome. He has great comedic timing and expressions (the scene in the bath? LOL) but he can also break my heart with one of his patented wounded looks. ProDai is this huge emotional rollecoaster for me: I giggle and I sniffle (much more often than one should in a light drama, but it's always the 'light' ones like 'My Girl' that get me the most). Mr. Mousie was actually mocking me because I get so invested that at the last part of the ep (with the new student teacher who is the future groom, baaaaaad vie, ugh! erasing Ken's message to Rei) I was making repeated stabbing motions at the screen and audible 'stabbing' sounds. Heh.

Ken is adorable. He is one of those rare drama guys I would love it real life (a lot of them are magnetic disasters so it rules them out as suitable companions). I loved the thing he told Rei in the hallway about excuses not mattering because all the excuses don't matter as he didn't get her what she wanted. Of course, I can see a 23 year old saying it (because that's what he is, a 23 year old back in time) but not a just-18 boy.

And that is why I want to take Rei, adorable and awesome as she is, and shake her. Hard. Girl, I understand about coy. Or shy. But seriously, your hints are much much much too oblique for him to get. He is getting them now because he is much older and is fixating on each detail, but seriously. The birthday thing? Cute. Adorable. But insane to expect him to figure out. Guys are dense. Teenage guys? Triply so. Boys are emotionally stupid, it's a known fact. Tell him you like him. Come on, cut him some slack.

I have also, being on a jdrama kick, started continuing with Nobuta Wo Produce and am in middle of ep 9. I loved ep 8 (the first ep I really fell for, it took me the longest time. Posted about it much earlier as got sidetracked with something else afterwards) and interestingly my strong liking has held as I love 9 and am really emotionally invested in these characters: I adore Shuji: I started out thinking of him as the most bland but now I am anxiously protective of him; and Akira: I went from finding him freaky to amazing. His comment about how he doesn't care if Nobuta and Shuji are together because they come first and he comes second is...waaaah. And of course I care for the scared, blossoming Nobuta. It's wonderful. I guess not being so incredibly tired helps.

OK, apparently there is a live action Honey and Clover movie that came out earlier in the year. How come no one on my flist alerted me to it? You have failed me, flist :D I want to watch it, though not for 50+ bucks as that is what the super-duper shiny version on ebay with twenty-eight kinds of subtitles and spiffy cover costs. I’ll wait a bit.

Honey and Clover movie summary )

In j-movie vein, are Love Complex and Tokyo Tower worth watching? Keeping in mind I have not read the manga for the former and the novel (?) for the latter.

I have finally watched all the subbed eps of Wallflower. I liked them tremendously, but am very upset they left out my favorite storyline from the manga: the one where Sunako gets posessed by the serial-killer s&m (but ladylike) ghost. And chains all the boys up in the dungeon and Kyouhei manages to escape and in order to exorcise the ghost, kisses Sunako because he knows that would freak her out so much from the contact with the ‘creatures of light’ (in the manga, that’s their first kiss). And then ends up carrying the now-unconscious Sunako up the weirdo stairs. It’s shippy and awesome and fun. Hmmm, I wonder if they left it out because the anime is somewhat more family-friendly? Though they seem to be moving storylines around a lot, order-wise, for some reason, so I guess there’s still hope :D

But anyway, the bulk of this post is going to be about ep. 8 of Nobuta Wo Produce. Which I ended up loving. The meta is going to be largely Shuji centric *gasp* because finally, 8 eps in, I’ve fallen for him (I didn’t dislike him before, just wasn’t particularly interested).

Akira…shock. I am actually doing a Shuji meta )

Oh, [livejournal.com profile] ilanabean42, you are so right.

Ep. 8 has made me fall in fiction-love with Shuji. And 'get' him. And made me feel very sorry for him.

Nobuta Power Enter! Yeah, I might end up loving this and not just admiring this after all.

Btw, Aoi=hate.

It would help if I wasn't so exhausted while watching NwP most nights.

Nobuta!

I know I have a lot of Nobuta Wo Produce fans on my LJ (I especially remember [livejournal.com profile] winterspel's lovely posts), so I thought I would ask:

What is it that appeals to you all so strongly about it? (Or if you don't love it to pieces, why not).

The reason I am so interested is because it's a highly-loved drama that evokes such strong emotions in people but I find myself, while admiring the acting and the script, while being enormously moved by certain scenes, and incredibly impressed by Yamapi, still fast-forwarding through scenes and never really falling for it as a drama. It never truly clicks in that magical way. Seven episodes in, I don't think it will. I really doubt I'd rewatch it once I am done. It's a drama I admire and respect more than I love.

I've been wondering why. It's not a simple 'a lead actor/character just not working for me' situation as it is with Long Vacation or Boku Dake No Madoona (where the female lead just keeps irritating me). I love Yamapi, and Kame, and Horihita Maki and their characters. I kept thinking it's because of a lack of narrative drive, but it has as much of an overall arc as maintained by smaller arcs as does Kurosagi which I adore to pieces. But I suppose the mini-arcs in Kurosagi are a lot more dramatic. I kept thinking it's because there is no romance, and I am sure that's a huge part of it (all my Top Dramas are romance dramas, except for Kurosagi which has the best case of UST ever), but still. I adored Gokusen, and while I am a Shin/Yankumi shipper there, until the end it's not any more overt or shippable than e.g. Akira/Nobuko. I suppose Gokusen was cracktastically funny, but that can't just be it (and while Shin is a mystery so it's interesting to try to figure out his reactions, I adore Akira even more so...). Is it the lack of angst or because the lead characters aren't interestingly messed up? But once again, see Gokusen. I'd say it's a combo of all of those, but once again, am left with Gokusen which: a. doesn't have a strong narrative drive, is not a romance drama, and is not particularly angsty, and yet I adore it. So why? I've been trying to figure it out for days. It can't be my thing for MatsuJun because my thing for Yamapi is 15 times as big.

So yes. If you've seen NwP. Why do you adore it? Or why don't you?

In other news, I am reading Twighlight by Stephenie Myer. I wouldn't normally read a novel about a girl in love with a vampire named Edward, but it is entirely too delicious a book. And I still have The Vampire Knight hangover.

If you read [livejournal.com profile] tinyangl’s awesome ep 2 recap/pic post of Hana Yori Dango 2, you’ll see from the preview caps that Akira’s house has that gigantic tacky bunny in the corner of the room. ROFL. *loves* I can’t wait! I am also betting the only reason Kaede didn’t deny Akira the house is because she doesn’t want to be bumped off by his dad. Who apparently loves silly women :D (OMG, his Mom is a FRUITCAKE, if that one pic is an indication. Heeee).

Verging into spoilery for ep 3 )

Oh yeah, and even thinking about ep 7 of Nobuta Wo Produce makes me all verklempt. NwP will never be a huge marathonning fave (not enough narrative drive or romance) but the emotions hit so true it hurts. Spoilers for ep 7 )

Clubbox is not scary any more! Clubbox is not scary any more! Clubbox is not scary any more! YES! I've used it and lived to tell the tale. Though learning how to use a site entirely in Korean just so I could see something a few hours sooner probably indicates sad things about me.

Hmmm. I think it's a bit weird that the two dramas I'd love to mainline are Hana Kimi and Hana Yori Dango 2, but I can't do that as they are currently airing.

While the two dramas I am actively watching and have all the eps for, Nobuta Wo Produce and Green Rose, I have no desire to marathon as I like them but don't love them.

NwP is a drama I admire more than I love. It's intelligent and well-acted but it lacks a strong narrative drive so I am perfectly fine with watching an episode here and there. There is no urgency to the characters and their situation so there is no urgency to my watching of them. I also confess to ffing on 2x (so I can read the subs) a lot of scenes that don't have Yamapi in them because Shuji and Nobuko are well acted but fail to really grab me. I guess NwP confirms it. I adore romantic angst (just look at my top dramas: e.g. Mars, Pride, My Girl, A Love to Kill, Meteor Garden, Goong). I love sword-fighting and period intrigue. And I really enjoy cracky comedy, if romantic comedy, all the better, but it's fine even if not. If the drama is not one of the above? I might like it, but it will fail to really obsess me. And thus it is with NwP. Akira spoiler )

And then there is Green Rose. I have finished ep 10 out of 22. I am enjoying it a lot, even if no marathonning because it's 22 eps, so like a lot of Korean dramas after a bang-up start it settles towards a somewhat slow middle. I don't mind, but because of the more leisurely pace, by urgency is also lessened. And there is a lot of boring business talk, and a bunch of secondary characters I couldn't care less for. But the OTP? OTP makes up for it all.

When there is OTP interaction, I die and squee and go to heaven, but I want more. But what there is, is stellar. OTP spoilers )
