I've had it for ages but today I finally started Hakuoki Shinsengumi, the one where a cross-dressing girl named Chizuru joins the Shinsengumi who are also, occasionally, vampires. With a set-up like this, it's pretty much made for me!



She also gets it on with hunky hunky Hijikata Toshizo at some point (who, according to wikipedia, was who Aoshi from Kenshin was modeled on. Mmmmmmmm. I think I will now have to crush on Hijikata by default).

The animation is gorgeous beyond belief and I was amused to see Shinsengumi be model-gorgeous and sporting purple, blue, etc. hair and that our heroine was overcome by lust-at-first-sight upon seeing Hijikata, his locks blowing in the wind, dispatching a bunch of feral assassins (though perhaps, as his first words to her were to the effect that if 'he' tries to run, Hijikata would kill 'him,' perhaps her lust overcame her common sense).

I am sure the real Shinsengumi would commit mass slaughter on seeing this anime, but I am enjoying it too much.

Have a shippy MV:

I haven't been posting about it because I got sidetracked, but I restarted with the amazing, awesome, etc etc Qin's Moon. It's gorgeous, complicated, with a superbly-rendered world, and characters I adore (well, the main kid I can take or leave but everyone else!)

Also, I have an OTP - Ge Nie/Duanmu Rong! He's Qin's best swordsman, who's turned against his masters and she is a legendary doctor who refuses treatment to only three types of people (1) people from Qin (2) swordsmen (3) people with the surname Ge. Guess who fits all three? Guess who gets treated anyway?







Thank you for feeding the h/c monster, show!

I am madly curious about their backstories - why does she have those conditions and why does she ditch them for him once she sees his sword? And why did he decide to stop being Qin's killing machine even if he will get killed for it?

Also, is it me or is Xiang Yu pretty much N1 obsession of show/movie-makers recently? I mean, there was the White Vengeance movie, and the upcoming one with Daniel Wu, plus the filming Chu-Han Contention series (I can't wait!) and the horrifying upcoming Beauties of the Emperor, plus The Myth and Legends of Chu-Han a few years back. And now here he is in QM as pretty much the coolest adolescent ever:



Liu Bang might have won the empire but he clearly lost the PR war :P (Having read up on the dude, no wonder. Pushing your kids out of your carriage so you can escape faster does not a legendary hero make).

Have a gorgeous and general QM amv. If you recognize the music, it's from Chinese Paladin 3.

(Where is my PMK Hijikata icon when I need it? Have a PMK Yamanami/Akesato one instead).

Yessss! I found my new anime binge! Hakuoki is a two season + OVA anime where the heroine shacks up with the Shinesengumi and becomes the OTP of Hijikata Toshizo, who's a vampire here.

!!!!!

!!!!!!!!

This is so insane and perfect that I simply must watch for myself.

I mean, if you want to think of a Western equivalent, it's would be as if someone made a series about a young lady hanging out with the American Revolutionary Army and knocking boots with Madison, who liked to drink human blood. Pretty much as random as that sounds.

Plus, it looks way gorgeous:



If you prefer your MVs shippy:



It's as if someone smushed Peacemaker and Vampire Knight together!

Eeep! YESSSS!

Blame [livejournal.com profile] hamster428. Her post on Qin's Moon, a Chinese wuxia 3-D animation set during the Qin Dynasty, led me to seek it out and now I am OBSESSED!



It's basically everything I love in a period/fantasy/wuxia cdrama only even prettier! There are supposed to be seven seasons - three are out with subs, fourth is currently airing. Epic battles, tangled loyalties, OTPs that wield swords!

I will eat...something, if this MV doesn't sell you on this:




Actually, I am pre-obsessed with one particular couple:



I mean, they kill things together and make music together! You know it's soulmate territory!

A couple of shippy MVs )

OK, say you. You might be interested but what on earth is this animation about? Glad you asked. Plot synopsis from ancientchinese.net: Qin's Moon tells the story of the rise and fall of the Qin Dnasty, the first Dynasty of China. During this time, six kingdoms were conquered by Qin in a ruthless takeover, with the new emperor forcing his subjects to follow his will and laws. The story follows a young boy, Tianming, who is hunted down by the Qin empire for reasons beyond his knowledge; and together with his friends, allies and teachers, will change the course of history.

As the story progresses fantasy, steampunk and history intertwine to tell this truly unique tale of courage during uncertain times. Tianming faces treacherous enemies, hope and loss, difficult relationships with both family and friends, and the challenges of deailing with a changing world. Eventually, a new era will be created out of their struggles for a better world.


(You can find torrents for the subbed first three seasons on ancientchinese.net or watch subbed eps here). There is also this great QM website and a QM tumblr.

I have just started Kimi no Todoke and it's adorable!



Its heroine, Sawako, would love to be a normal high school girl, but everyone is terrified of her due to her manner and look being like something out of a horror movie. But maybe, just maybe, this might change because the most popular guy in her class seems to pay extra attention to her...

It's just s sweet and cute and adorable!

I am in an anime kinda of mood, so I am going to watch Bokura Ga Ita, which looks very pretty and very shoujo.

Have a MV,



Also, I was going to do a proper The Holy Pearl post (am on ep 3 and am loving it) but I am sick and have the mother of all headaches (still) so have a MV instead.



I am a sucker for heroic fantasy with humor and hot people, so I am loving this.

I have finally had a chance to check out the first episode of a liveaction take on one of my all-time favorite mangas, Ouran High School Host Club and I am in love in love in love in love in love.



Somehow they managed to transfer the cracky, cheeky, post-modern metaish, with a hidden heart vibe of the manga (and the awesome anime. It was the only shoujo anime Mr. Mousie ever liked).

The story, such as it is, is about Haruhi, a brilliant scholarship student in a ritzy school. Haruhi is a girl but has little interest in gender norms - she wears a male uniform as more comfortable and has her hair chopped short (I am not getting into long meta again but I really like this drama's take on gender). Through a hilarious set of circumstances, Haruhi ends up working as a host with the Ouran High School Host Club in order to pay a debt. The hosts are the only ones who know she's a girl and Haruhi is very popular with the ladies as a femmy type of boy. Haruhi is pragmatic and no-nonsense and is both puzzled and amused (and occasionally exasperated and always unimpressed) by her fellow hosts, especially by the leader, Tamaki, is a diva and a drama queen and totally lacking in street smarts and is the sweetest, kindest, loveliest person. Needless to say, Haruhi/Tamaki is my (and the manga's) OTP.

If you are looking for realistic exploration of class differences or low-key acting, stay away! It you want a funny, endearing, irrestible bit of fun, come right in!

Caps and thoughts ep 1 )

So yes, a total adoration. I have no idea how much of it is because I am so familiar with the story (i.e. I can't tell if there are any narrative gaps because I know the story backwards, and I come into it already loving the gang) but I do think it's really good. I will probably not even bother waiting for subs any more because I can follow raws (Darksmurf does fast and decent subs btw).

In conclusion, have a shippy anime MV, mainly because I adore the song:
