Mr. Mousie's comment on seeing my current LJ background: 'Why do you have a picture of two Japanese people having sex?' ROFL. To my response of 'They are not Japanese and he is just kissing her good night' he responded 'Ah, so he is at the thank you stage.' Heeee.

If the below (nonspoilery) The Outsiders vid (with the music the awesome theme song for TO) doesn't make you watch it, I despair of you.



Some meta on ep 13 and Ah Hao and Yu Yen )

Here are a very few shots from the beginning of the ep.

Ep 13 shots )

You may ask, why so much The Outsiders? Well, it's the only drama I am watching. Usually I watch at least two, but I cannot hold interest in anything but TO now. It's insane. I don't even ff one bit and don't mind watching on the computer. Craaaaazy :)

I am however also reading volume 1 of W Juliet and Kitchen Princess which are both cute if not memorable. And Mr. Mousie and I are slowly but surely continuig with the Otogi Zoshi anime. We are in modern day and it's fun.

Somewhere between volumes 3and 4, the Red River manga went from 'I like' to 'must feverishly mainline more.' I am now on volume 6 and basically bought out every volume (through 17) available in the local Borders.

As I mentioned earlier, RR is a story about a Japanese high school girl, Yuri, who gets catapulted back in time to the land of ancient Hittites. There she gets involved in the politics and wars of the time and also catches the interest of one of the Hittite Princes, Prince Kail (a real historical figure which amuses me to no end).

Why is it so awesome? Unlike the usual shoujo this isn't just 'does the cute boy like me?' No, it's more of 'yeah, the cute general Prince likes me. Now how shall I return back to my time? And how will I survive the Queen who seems to want to have me as a human sacrifice in her black magic rituals so her son could inherit? And how will I be involved in the battle between Hittites and a neighboring empire for dominance? And deal with political backstabbing?'

It's really great. How to explain it? Think Fushigi Yuugi, only if Miaka annoyed you (I adored her but I know some don't care for her) you'll like Yuri as she learns sword-fighting and comes up with clever schemes and rescues herself as often as she yells for Prince Kail to rescue her. Though if Kail is like anyone in FY, he is much more of a Hotohori than a Tamahome. My favorite scene is where he gets himself invited to an enemy town and makes a grand entrance with concubines all over him and an air of an utter idiot :P

I also don't mind the whole 'she is staying in the past' thing as she does want to get back to her time but she can do it at a particular time of the year so she has 10 months to go (Kail promises her to get her back to where she needs to be by accelerating the war. Roses? Candy? Passe. Beating the enemy in 10 months so your OTP can return to the capital and depart back to her world? True Love). Even the usual cliche of 'he wants sex but she isn't so sure' doesn't bug me as it's clearly a cultural thing. He is a guy from 3000+ years back. To him it's pretty simple. They love each other and she's his officil concubine and why not. She is all 'I am a high school student.' Heh. This not being the awful Haou Airen he is all 'blah, this sucks, off for a cold shower' and not 'rapey now.'

Oh, and good news, [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore. Since I fell in love with this despite the artwork, and the artwork is actually very similar to Basara, I decided to get all the Basara volumes out there, now that I know that a good story can overcome my dislike for this particular art style.

I bought a whole bunch of books actuall, manga and non, including Matt Ruff's Sewer, Gas, Electric: Public Works Trilogy, a boo about vampires in Austin called Tantalize, Jasper Fforde's Fourth Bear etc etc and two first volumes of W Juliet.

EEEEEE

Oh, and I stole this MV of Summer x Summer from [livejournal.com profile] autumn_yaar. I think I just added a drama to my currently airing roster back again :)
