Yes, yes, I posted about HYD once today already. Sorry. I got addicted. I am halfway through though.

Oh, Hana Yori Dango, why must you toy with me and title an ep "Their sleepless night together." Instead of anime porn all I got was angst. Mmmmmmmm, yummy angst. Favorite angsty moment so far? Tsukushi meeting Doumyouji on a street at night, and she tries to have some sort of chit chat and is babling out of nervousness, and all of a sudden he hugs her and tells her that all she has to say is that she loves him, just once, and he'll cancel the match (this beeing teenybopper anime version of Bollywood, there is a basketball match to settle whether Tsukushi and Rui get kicked out of the school. They will if Doumyouji's team wins, and they clearly will. I muse admit, I'd tell him even if I didn't mean it, because hey, get to stay in fancy school). Awwwww. And she won't say anything and he grabs her shoulders and leans in to kiss her and she freaks and he is all upset and slumping against a wall and is is all "woe is me, is that so distasteful to you? Why did it have to be my best friend that you preferred to me and cheated on me with? Woe, angst, I will brood" And then he is kinda sweet and wistful with her and leaves.

And of course, during the game, Rui manages to get quite an advantage by pretending to be publically affectionate with Tsukushi which makes Doumyouji see red and commit fouls. Heeee. And then, when it's clear Tsukushi and Rui will lose anyway, he quits on purpose and tells her she can stay. Which is sweet, but cancelled out by the fact that he was the one agitating for her to get kicked out in the first place. Heh.

The more time goes on, the more I like Rui as a character, in all his messed-up, passive-agressive glory. But hey, Tsukushi, hint: probably losing your virginity to a guy whose attitude towards the business is "I don't mind" and admits that he is still in love with someone else is not really worth it. Glad to see you figured it out (though come on, Rui. If you didn't really love her, it's kinda wrong to steal her from your best friend). But hey, I like Doumyouji better (though in RL if any child of mine wanted to date him, I'd ship her out of the country). But then again, Tsukushi's parents are horribly useless (Mrs. Bennet has nothing on them).

I have to say, Tsukushi says "Doumyouji" more than Miaka says "Tamahome." And she doesn't even have the "she is besotted and menaced" excuse. Heeee.

But not as angsty as when he gets beaten up within an inch of his life for her sake. Awwww.
