J/K-drama Watch List

February 28, 2010

Title card for Samurai High School. We loved it. & the ED theme.

Thought I’d make a list of what we need/want to watch lol.

We’ve already got through;

Zenigeba
Samurai High School

We’re currently watching;

Bloody Monday
Rookies

And we will eventually watch;

Gokusen 1/2/3/Movie/Specials
Konkatsu
Mei-chan no Shitsuji
Massugu no Otoko(Maybe just I’ll watch this lol)
Utahime
Zettai Kareshi
Kisarazu Cat’s Eyes(Well…maybe this just I’ll watch haha, but still..)
The Game

Theres Full House & some Banjun Drama for the K-drama so far, but its harder to get lol, and we’re picky.

We started out with movies first though, Shindo, Koizora, Detroit Metal City, Aquarian Age, I’m a Cyborg, but thats OK, not in that order lol. Theres still more to watch though, but TV has distracted us…

Ultra Miracle Love Story(which we’re watching tonight finally, awesome Matsuken-ness!!)
Gachi Boy(Which I started watching one night, but forced myself to stop haha, its so adorable… and it’ll be sad…)
Do Not Laugh At My Romance
Gohatto(Already seen it, but Purplezest hasn’t lol)

Transferring files around is a bitch…… 4.7GB should not take over 8 minutes….. grrr…

Otaku? (+ some not-so-random bishies)

February 24, 2010

You don't get it right? Thats cos only hardcore, obsessive fans would. Don't argue with me on that. (This is one of the many epic designs from Detour Design on Cafepress, click to go there.)

Now, I thought ‘otaku’ was just a word for someone who is obsessed with something, yes it’s more commonly connected to anime/manga etc, but thats not the proper-proper use, is it? In Japanese its a word for someone with an obsession for a certain area(there are other meanings I’m aware of too, its also a suffix like -san/-dono/-chan etc which I wasn’t as aware of lol), but some still want to use it just for anime/manga/eroge obsessions. After becoming a fan of anime/manga when I was 13(I think…) I wasn’t really aware of the use of otaku at all, why would I be? I live in a country that once wrote off most Japanese cartoons as pornographic thanks to Urotsukidoji lol. That was then though, this is now. Much more accepting of it… I think lol.
I’ve always been… easy to get obsessed with something, when I was ickle, it was Dalmatians, thanks to 101 Dalmatians. Favourite Disney movie of all time, and will remain that way, for mostly sentimental reasons I think lol. But that lasted with me, and still is with me now really, until I was 9 or so, when Pokemon arrived, and Pokemon is still with me now lol, can’t wait for Soul Silver to come out!! Am soooo tempted to import… even though there’s only a couple of weeks in between US & UK releases… still seems unfair that we have to wait…

Romeo X Juliet Episode 1 & other musings

February 12, 2010

After getting the SFX magazine today, and it having a disc of 3 eps of anime on(sadly dubbed only, not even any subs for the op/ed themes…), gave me a chance to finally watch (the 1st ep at least, of the) Romeo&Juliet anime. When they say ‘based on’ its taken *very* loosely lol. Pegasus’s, fine. But masked crossdressing town heroes like Marian in the BBC Robin Hood? lol. And the Japanese version of ‘You Raise Me Up’ made me lol too.  Animations all nice though. Gonzo standard(?) This is being written while I watch lol, as dubbed makes it easier to multitask haha.

Eeep at the creepy blonde Shakespeare though…
