A super long long day. What better way to relax than by having Curry Laksa with Mr. Mousie and then go home and watch Samurai Champloo. I love it but still haven't finished it as we want to watch it together but so rarely have the time...

Yes, still at the beach. I love the dry air and the giant cacti and the winding hilly roads with goats lazily wandering across and a myriad of birds flying overhead. And the brightly painted houses with thick slanting walls, and the blueness of the ocean from the cliff, and the cloudy sunsets.

But this is not why I have an LJ, so here continues my chronicle of watching.

I found a preview for ep 13 of Snow Queen on youtube and OMG! Big plot spoler )

I have also been continuing with my Farscape rewatch. Thoughts on 2.02 Vitas Mortis )

I am also four episodes into Samurai Champloo which continues to be excellent. I confess Mugen freaks me out, with the 'fun' violence, but he is an interesting character (who is certainly having fun) and I like Fuu and adore Jin (who seems to make a habit of rescuing people from brothels? Yeah, yeah, I know I am not supposed to have seen the later ep yet).

I have also finished six episodes of Magicians of Love and it continues to be awesome. I really like that Yasi and Xiao Bei seem to be getting genuinely good friends first, before all the heavy necking or what not. They get to know each other and their misconceptions fly away. I love that Xiao Bei admits that she now prefers him to his 'brother,' after getting to know him, and actually defends him to his grandmother. I really can't wait until poor Yasi's house of cards will fall down and grandma and Xiao Bei will find out there is no Yayun, as he and Mother died a couple of years back. Ouch. Well, Yasi is clearly falling apart as a result of doing such an odd charade, so it's probably for the best (the look on his face as XB unwittingly hits on it by saying he can pretend to be his twin with a different demeanor and clothes). And I love it when he ruffles her hair. Eeeeee! And he finally decided to give up on his awful ex (who ditched him for 3 years!) not knowing she just came back. And XB basically summed him up to his face, as someone nice who builds walls in order to keep from being hurt (a sheep in wolf's clothing) and they had fun and now Richie likes her too and she thinks she likes Richie, who is liked by Kelan (who should stop with the cooking) which has Fernando pissed off and eeeeee....getting good!

And in conclusion, youtube is your friend. Why? I have been a bad girl, watching Hana Kimi RAWs. And I bring you my fave scene so far, Quan rescing Rui Xi from annoying guy's attempted rape and her being all feverishand unconscious and there being kissing. (Trust me to pick the angsty scene in a near angst-free manga).

dangermousie: (ISWAK first kiss by pinkfactory)
Yup, still in tropical paradise. Had a bizarre dream in which the Winchester brothers ended up on Moya, which is probably a hint I should watch more Farscape but not before bed.

Watched the second ep of Samurai Champloo which was neat and second episode of Hana Kimi which was neater. Spoilers for HK ep 2 )

I have also finished the Takizawa Hideaki jdrama Boku Dake No Madonna though judicious use of ff button. TH was excellent in it (and was angsting most prettily in the shower) but the female lead drove me nuts. That is actually a big chunk of the reason I adore kdramas and twdramas but not jdramas for most part. The female leads. Most times, I fall madly for the female leads in a kdrama (usually before I fall for the hero, actually). And most times, that's true for twdramas too. But in jdramas, with a few exceptions, I want to strangle them, and here was no exception. I totally loathed her and she never changed. Still, worth watching for vague spoilers for BDNM )

Now I am sort of torn. I don't want to watch a jdrama, so I am probably going to finish Magicians of Love. I have a mad yen to rewatch Mars though (both of which dramas I have here). I'd actually rewatch Meteor Garden which I also have here, but HYD 2 is going to start before I finish and I don't want to be confused. Helpful hints?

I still have the bulk of S2 of Farscape to get through, and Samurai Champloo, and I started Nana the anime (very pretty) but I am thinking of doramas as well...

So, in between swimming, and sunning myself on the beach and looking at sunsets, I countinued with my watching of 17 different things.

Thoughts on Farscape's ep 2.01: Mind the Baby )

I also watched second episode ofBoku Dake No Madonna And my thoughts on it are here )

I have also started Samurai Champloo. So far, I have only seen first episode, but it is LOVE. The anime is set in the Edo period (but with deliberate anachronisms) and follows the adventures of three very different individuals: Fuu, a girl who is looking for a samurai that smells like sunflowers (for unspecified reasons) and the two fighters she got to help and protect her (making them interrupt their own fight, as a payment for saving their lives earlier): a taciturn ronin Jin (who ismy favorite) and a wild Okinawan, Mugen. I really love the artwork: which is beautiful and fluid and reminds me a bit of Peacemaker Kurogane, and I have rarely loved characters as fast as I got into Fuu, Jin, and Mugen. I love the fights which are brutal and short and gorgeously animated (and I love that Mugen and Jin have very different fighting styles). And I love the pace, which was my one worry, as this is by TPTB who did Cowboy Beebop which is good but whose pace felt too leaisurely. Can't wait to watch more.

I have also finished the Snow Drop manga and am in squee overload. And will start on biography of Teddy Roosevelt now. Or maybe continue All This and Heaven Too, a novel based on the true story of the infamous Mademoiselle D (Henriette Duplessis), a 19th century governess in the troubled household of the Duc de Praslin, a minister of Louis XVIII, with whom the Duc fell in love and as a result murdered his wife and then killed himself. There was a gorgeous, passionate movie with Charles Boyer and Bette Davis in the 1940s about it.

Oh, and last night I dreamt about watching Hana Yori Dango 2. I guess I really am impatient for it.

And I close with the following hilarious article from the BBC:

I have just bought Samurai Champloo.

Expect much SQUEEing soon.

And I have this crazy urge to continue rewatching Fushigi Yuugi (my rewatch is right before the Suzuku warriors set out to do the summoning and everything goes to hell. I don't want Tamahome's awesome family to buy it).

Btw, Tamahome? Still my anime boyfriend.

I tried Basilisk anime btw, and was disappointed. I didn't care for the colors and it was just fighting without sparkle or humor. And the heroine annoyed me. Oh well, win some lose some.

I caught some Bleach and Trinity Blood on Cartoon Network.

I so NEED all epsisodes of both.

Yesterday.

And OMG, Samurai Champloo gets here next week.

Not to mention Basilisk.

And I still have Gungrave.

For a while there, after watching nothing but anime, I ODed on the stuff: no matter how much you like it, 5 hours a day of anime for weeks will wear you down and I tried a few anime that just didn't appeal. But after a bit of a break, I've started watching anime again, at a bit of a more normal pace.

In fact, I've been rewatching Fushigi Yuugi for a while (and yes, Tamahome is still my anime boyfriend and I still think Miaka/Tamahome are THE anime OTP. I am a dork). But that is not what the post is about.

Mr. Mousie is a fan of Samurai Champloo. Whenever we stay up late enough, I sometimes walk through the living room and catch a glimpse or two. But I was always doing something else, and so I never saw more than a few seconds of it. Well, today, I actually saw an episode from the beginning to end.

And I am in love!!! I don't even know the story, but it was so visually beautiful. I am a sucker for rain, when it's animated as well as it's here, and you know my passion for angst and this one had plenty. But most importantly of all, Jin=love. Seriously. With the glasses, and the swords and the restrained angst. Why didn't anyone tell me how cool he is?

For anyone wondering, tonight's episode was designed to reel in [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie as Jin (one of the three main characters) fell in love with a woman who was sold to a brothel to pay her husband's debts and there was plenty of angst and forbidden lurve and rescues and swords to satisfy even the most greedy heart. Not to mention beautiful rain.

Even the dub wasn't bad at all.

It just went into the top of my Netflix queue.

In conclusion: JIN!!!!!

I have no SC icon, so a RK one will do.

P.S. Does anyone know where I can get my hands on Trinity Blood, Ouran High School Host Club and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles (is that it's name? It's the one with Sayoran and Sakura).
