1. Got my photo taken for passport renewal and the proprietor was watching Kal Ho Na Ho. We ended up having a long chat about Bollywood. Eeee! :)

2. I think it finally sank in that in a few months, I’ll be seeing Oguri Shun romance Horihita Maki. And there will be sleepovers, and him carrying her and eeee. Serious GLEE here. When is it supposed to air? The guy was born to play Sano :)

3. I’ve been watching Mars vids. How an artist, who is a rape victim who does not talk to anyone and cannot bear to be touched by men and an outwardly devil-may care racer who was formerly in an insane asylum and is familiar with straight-jackets, and who has out of control violence problems, can ever make a good believable couple is inconcievable, but OMG. Somehow it slowly works and they become one of my favorite OTPs of all, an OTP where I really believe they could not exist without the other.

4. Been watching the amazing anime Otogi Zoshi set in the Heian era, and following Lady Hikaru who has to pretend to be her brother Raikou and recover the sacred Magatamas. It has an animation style I’ve never seen before. It’s as if they are tying to recreate the era paintings. The same is true for the pacing, and the story itself which is bleak but never hopeless. I love all the characters, but am especially taken by Mansairaku, an enigmatic imperial entertainer who crosses paths with Hikaru now and again, and to whom she becomes attracted.



5. Am now on Dunnett’s Queen’s Play. Brilliant. You know what struck me in GoK btw? The reconciliation/admission scene between Richard and Mariotta (which is breathlessly beautiful) is in many ways parallel to the one with Lymond and Philippa at the end of Checkmate, in both the acceptance of the woman, and surrender of control by the man, and childhood restoration. I guess the brothers do have things in common after all.

6. Apparently Bushi No Ichibun is out on DVD with subs. Me want.

7. I have found a plentiful source of Pockys in the neighborhood. Yay!

8. I think I am mobbed out what with Lovers and ADC. I think I will switch to something light and fluffy, most likely Taiwanese Hana Kimi for a bit.

[livejournal.com profile] catdecember, oh [livejournal.com profile] catdecember, guess what I tried? Inspired by this mv which looked interesting (aka cute guys and angst), I tried Goong. For all of you who are not [livejournal.com profile] catdecember, Goong is a very melodramatic romantic drama about a girl betrothed to a Prince blah blah blah. Knowing how Korean movies usually end, I am a bit paranoid about the end but we'll see. I am actually interested in watching more specifically Korean stuff as my exposure to the cultural products of Korea is very limited (three movies and a manhwa and a few fairy tales are about it).

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] koalathebear, when I was in Chicago, I tried pockys and they are the best thing ever (especially the strawberry ones). Now I need to figure out where I can get them here.

And I've watched ep 16 of Ouran and woe is me. I now like Hikaru with Haruhi too. Eeee.

Btw, sorry to everyone of flist who friended me because of BSG or Veronica Mars or Bollywood and is now seeing a stream of Asian entertainment (whether anime or jdorama) related stuff. I go through phases and this one will subside to a more normal average pretty soon. Promise.
