dangermousie: (Love Shuffle - photog by topazera)
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sodahands, I have found out about the upcoming jdrama Nagareboshi which starts next week.

Apparently, it's a love story between Takenouchi Yutaka, a man with a secret he will do anything to protect, and Ueto Aya, a suicidal prostitute working to pay off her brother's debts. For various reasons they enter into a contract marriage and the story goes from there.

Trailer:



There are so many reasons to be excited - the awesome cast (in addition to beyond delicious Yutaka and Aya whom I always like, there is also Matsuda Shota and Kitano Kii (please make them a secondary OTP please) and Inagaki Goro of SMAP as Juri's brother) plus I love with jdramas do angsty love stories - they do them so well.

DO NOT SCREW IT UP, JDRAMA! It's been a long time since a good angsty romance.

And now I am off to watch Rondo to prep myself :P Have a Rondo MV.

1. For some reason, I have a craving to watch Rondo.

2. I realized I never posted caps from ep 8 of Chuno.

This morning continues pretty good: the sky is shinily blue, I am wearing my favorite sweater/skirt combo (corded, form-fitting turtleneck of black-gray-pale pink and down to the ground a-line skirt, dark brown with a few thick, roughly patterned black/gray/pale pink stripes). Plus my favorite black boots, and I got complimented on my looks this morning by metro guys :D

I think I am now in that point in my drama cycle, where I madly crave jdrama (just as a few months ago I was in kdrama cycle, and before that twdrama). So a lot of this are rambles about potential candidates.

Anyway. Since this is long, varied, and rather rambly, I am going to cut, to spare the flist.

Various, relating to Japanese entertainment )

And now, about manga )

Other dramas of the world, unite! )

Oh MAN. [livejournal.com profile] lainemma has started subbing The Outsiders II. And I already have the first two episodes.

What is The Outsiders II? Well, only the 'midquel' to the only drama that ever came close to knocking Mars off my 'number 1 drama' spot. And yes, I did finish The Outsiders, and yes, I bawled like a little girl, and yes, the end was inevitable and perfect, and no, I bloody well don't want to talk about it.

Anyway, The Outsiders II takes place during that 'time jump' in the middle of The Outsiders, and so you get to see Hong Do and Ah Qi develop their funny, cute relationship. And you get to see Yu Yen deal with and internalize her rape trauma and become the tough, broken 'mob moll' she is after the time jump. And you see Ah Hao progress up the hierarchy. And above all, you get to see more of the gorgeous, impossible, doomed Ah Hao/Yu Yen: disintegration, and secrets, and scars, and love. They are losing each other because of her rape and her secret of her being raped, and he can feel the barriers and doesn't know why. But yet, there is so much love between them. They are one of my Top OTPs ever, and I get to see them again. It doesn't get better than that.

Though possibly, it does, when I also find a new jdrama. Blame [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore for my interest in Rondo. She posted awesome pics in her LJ so check them out. She said it's jdrama does kdrama, which I love. Though I am first finishing Why Why Love (I know it has a happy ending but I can't bear any pain to the protagonists) and A Beautiful Life.

Also, has anyone seen the jdrama Ice World (Kouri No Sekai) with Yutaka Takenouchi and Nanako Matsushima? More importantly, can anyone spoil the ending for me? Plot: Eiki Hirokawa is an insurance investigator who becomes enthralled by an icy geography teacher Touko Egi he meets while examining a mysterious death at a girl's high school. Chances are Touko may have been responsible for several deaths. Her three fiancees have made her the benefactor of their life-insurance policies, but all soon died after they cancelled their policies. Eiki suspects something in Touko but at the same time, he begins to fall for her.

Here is the MV:



Completely unconnected, I finished 'The Runaway Bride' episode of Doctor Who which I loved beyond love. So funny, and bitter, and clever, and sad. Everything. I love that the Doctor offered even the evil spider empress one chance out. And I love equally much that once she refused, he destroyed her and her evil race, and he didn't mind, and looked utterly calm and in madness at the same time. I loved Donna completely, in her opinionated loud-mouthness and common sense and perceptiveness. She could tell the Doctor is incredibly lonely (he asked her to come along because he wanted anyone suitable, anyone, really. And in her reaction he is again confronted with loneliness, and the way he scares people away because of the darkness and danger. Hmmmm, like a more functional version of Stark?). And she also knew the life was not for her (at least now). And also, as Mr. Mousie put it 'she didn't want to be the rebound girl.' Because throughout this episode it is made clear, over and over, that Doctor is so not over Rose (in part, he is so set on rescuing Donna is because 'I am not losing anyone else.') I love the bit when he tells Donna, when she asks him is 'trust me' what he told his previous friend, that Rose is very much alive, so much conviction. AWWWWWWW. And the way his face closes and he deflects every time she is brought up. And the way he remembers spending Xmas with Rose. And at the end, when Donna asks him what his friend's name was and he says, very quietly, 'Her name was Rose' and his face is...*sniffle* But my favorite D/R thing was when he was at that reception, and saw someone dancing with a blonde girl, whose hair kept swinging the way Rose's did, and kept flashbacking to holding Rose there, in New Earth and his eyes...he looks like he has to refrain from crying.

Some screencaps from the ep:
