The Fun Things You Find Out While Watching Television 
30th-Jul-2007 01:24 am
Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Met up with risax, mildlyinsane and julineci this evening for much manga-doujin-sharing and love. Omi and Val introduced me to this absolutely gorgeous series about a fox spirit, and it is so pretty and so pretty and I am completely sold. ♥ Thank you so much! It was so much fun, and we should totally do it again! ♥

Milo Ventimiglia in Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" video. I could cry! I was watching MTV tonight when this horror of Peter Petrelli slumming it up as Fergie's tattooed and extremely shirtless boyfriend turned up on the TV, and I was torn between great joy (Peter's my favourite) and great horror - Go back to big brother, idiot!. You can watch the video here.

At around the same time I made this discovery, I found out that there is ice-skating anime - in particular, Ginban Kaleidoscope. To quote the summary off the direct download site,

it's like Hikaru no Go, but with ice-skating! Quoted summary begins here:

"Sakurano Tazusa is a beautiful and gifted figure skater, but because of her highhanded character and venomous tongue, she is hated by other people. In these days, she cannot display her true ability at the competitions, and she continues failing. One day, when the next Olympic’s delegation selection process is at the final stage, she is haunted by a Canadian ghost. At first, Tazusa refuses him, but gradually she begins to open to him, and she works hard to be chosen as an athlete of Turino Olympic."

Just so you get an idea of what kind of series this is (as if you actually needed any more of a clue than you already have from the summary itself, have some artwork! It makes me all XD that the guy possessing her is all blond and blue-eyed and named Pete. XD

Blond, blue-eyed, walks around with halo! I am so sold!
Pity the main character's a girl of the sort I won't watch. XD

The series is subbed by Conclave and is also available off scarywater bittorrent. Partial episode guide and series summary here, and a summary of episodes 1-3 here.

Also! Thanks to a new post on blades_of_glory, it has come to my attention that there are new pictures on the Blades gallery! ♥

Tales of the Abyss-wise, Chapter 17 of the Abyss manga has been scanned and uploaded (Luke cuts his hair!), and Chapter 1 of the Abyss manga has been scanlated. Both posts unfortunately community-locked.
29th-Jul-2007 05:58 pm (UTC) - spider-pig, spider-pig... xD
*gasp!* I WANTS! I'm more determined than ever now... to figure out how that damn porn site up-file works! >.>

I love how the Tales of the Abyss news gets a footnote. I think. xD
29th-Jul-2007 06:29 pm (UTC) - oh look! It's Harry Porker! XDDDD (Glad you managed to see it!) XD
XDDD!!! I THOUGHT OF YOU WHEN I REALISED WHAT THIS ANIME WAS LIKE. It's so... so... sparkly and girly. I hope you do manage to get it and enjoy it! ;)

XDDDDDD How evil are you! I would have loved to give the Abyss news a full-length feature! But unfortunately they're both community-locked, so I feel as if I can't express my love for them publicly.
29th-Jul-2007 06:41 pm (UTC) - I was elected to lead, not to read! xD (OMG I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN!!)

I can't seem to get Up-File to work! T.T I just uploaded BoG so I'm going to have to wait for the Telemeter to reset on the 27th! *bes patient!* xD

Thank you so much for posting about it, though! I wouldn't know it existed if you hadn't! xD

I added an "I think." to make it look less mean! *smirk!* I just have all these other fantastic fandoms right now.. why should I be nice to ToA? It was never nice to me! ;)
29th-Jul-2007 07:52 pm (UTC) - I will not illegally download this movie ;)
... XDDDD I think I'll pass on the official website, but maybe someday soon! ;) Hey, the Blades characters have Myspace accounts, too! ;) I think it's the NEWEST THING to hit movie promotion! ;)

*snuuug!* I wish you all the best on patiently waiting for the reset! I hope you'll be able to see it soon! Maybe it's on Youtube? ;) And XD, you're most welcome! Always glad to share the glittery skating love! ;)

ToA was never nice to you? *snug!*

OMG The Hello Kitty shot of the van Waldenbergs makes me crack up SO BAD.

...Although is it wrong of me to think that they look hot in that sparkly red outfit? I'd totally tango to that, if you know what I mean *snerk*

Team Jimmy FTW!
29th-Jul-2007 06:32 pm (UTC)

XDDDDDDDDDDDDD I am so amused that you noticed the Hello Kitty shot of the Van Waldenburgs! ;) When I saw it I was OW my brain OUCH the pink ARGH the Hello Kitty I shall just sear the memory of this image from my mind. XD BUT YEAH. XDDD

Totally tango. *slow wink* ;)

The shot that always cracks me up is of Snowflake the mascot with the arrow in his head, pointing in the HE DID IT way. XDDD

TEAM JIMMY TOTALLY FTW! ♥ Blond, pretty ukes who can hold their own in competition always have my heart. ;)

*glee* Glad to see you're still alive, and as fangirly as ever. I thought for a second that you'd become like your icon, a la Keanu Reeves in The Devil's Advocate (since I unfortunately don't have an icon from that movie, you get suicidal!Constantine instead. Rawr.)

That was the first thing that jumped at me in the special photos. Ahahahaha you know they had to take that a couple of times, because the actors/actresses kept on cracking up during it.

Seriously, if they weren't so hot on each other, I'd say Stranz was totally gay.

I don't remember Snowflake from the movie! This makes me sad. I wanted to buy the DVD, but was waiting for a special edition...or rather, hoping for one...since last time I bought AC too early I missed out on the shiny extras version.

Gee, I couldn't tell that from your obsession with Asch ^_~ Well, maybe not the blond part. Although you never know if the carpet matches the drapes...

*HUGS YOU* The more serious I have to be IRL, the more I end up sparkling on LJ. XD Funny how the Great Balance works out. ;) Glad to see you here, too! I'm glad you got back safe from your cruise, and that the bartender was sweet on you. *wiiink*

omg the really scary thing about that Devil's Advocate movie is that you can see how attractive a prospect selling your soul to the Devil to move on in the world is. It was kind of crazy, that movie, but fascinating, nonetheless! ♥

Stranz feels really gay to me. Maybe he only hits on his sister to convince himself that he's actually straight. And to prevent himself from acting on his feelings for Chazz. *smirks*

XD It is okay! *snug* It is likely that the SPECTACULAR GAY of Chazz/Jimmy overpowered everything else in that movie! ;) I just remember Snowflake because I laugh so hard whenever the mascots are in peril during that entire movie. Like a kid, in the Chazz-Jimmy opening on-ice bitchfight scene, I laughed like mad when their tussling ended up setting the Olympic mascot on fire by the simple expedient of the skater-skater-official-falling torch Domino-effect. XDDD

I am so weak for blonds like you would not believe! ;) And if they are pretty and uke, I can forgive them anything! ♥

Shit, I lost my Constantine icon on the other computer and then mistook House for him because I can't label anything right.



*waves the shiny?*
29th-Jul-2007 07:09 pm (UTC)
*BEAMS AND HUGS YOU TIGHT* I love you no matter what icon you use. *snuuuuug* House is good, too! ;) And man, I've done the same thing myself! *snug!*

Hm. I think I remember seeing the adverts on Animax for Ginban Kaleidoscope... It was very... sparkly.^^
29th-Jul-2007 06:34 pm (UTC)
XD I saw the advert for it on MTV, where they were advertising Animax. XDDD That's how I found it and then came online to HUNT IT DOWN! ♥

Too bad it's too shoujo, too girly, and too sparkly for my tastes. XD

If the main character had been a boy, it would have been a whole different story. XDDD

omg omg you know the Chinese doujin? ♥ My beloved silver-fox-kid is named Snowball in fox-form? Or at least, that's what his seme calls him? ♥ And this scene ACTUALLY took place in the second book:

Seme has to save fox-kid from nearly being skinned for his pelt in a cave, and he is wailing while being cleaned up, going on and on about:

Fox-kid: "I'm useless!" T_____T
Seme: *busily cleaning him up* "Hai, hai, you're useless..." (in the indulging-parent fashion)
Fox-kid: "I'm a moron!" ;;______;;
Seme: "Hai, hai, you're a moron..."

29th-Jul-2007 06:42 pm (UTC)
OMG. That character was made with you in mind!

(I like the seme... but then, that seems to happen a lot. ^^)

Hee, though from what I remember from the trailer, I think the spirit guy person thing is blond? :D
29th-Jul-2007 07:08 pm (UTC)
*grin* WHY YES HE WAS! ♥ I look forward to actually reading all the books!

(XD I like the seme too! ;) Rarely happens that we like the same seme, so ALL'S GOOD!)

XDDDD The spirit is definitely blond. And blue-eyed, too! ;)

Pete reminds me of another blonde hair blue eyed blue clad figure skater k thx XDDD

OTL Peter you should go back to being a good boy yesplsgobacktobigbrother xDDD When can I go on that Heroes marathon with you btw?
30th-Jul-2007 06:07 pm (UTC) - HEROES :D
XDDDDDD SO HE DOES, DOESN'T HE? ♥ Pete reminds me of what would happen if Jimmy had been a manga character. The anime hair, the blue eyes, the sparkles, the girly look. ;) Anime would have been a perfect medium of existence for Jimmy. Except Pete's personality is closer to Chazz than Jimmy, I think. XDDD

! HEROES MARATHON INDEED! How are you for meeting up for dinner during weekdays? I'm totally for you coming over to my place (or me going over to yours!), but my next available weekend will probably be the National Day weekend or after, as I'll be in Shanghai this weekend with my family?

And oh, Peter should go back to being a good boy. When I watched that video I was, oh Peter, you have a good boy's face, in a BAD BOY'S BODY. He still has that wide-eyed innocence that no number of tattoos can take away! And yes, go back to big brother! Not that WOMAN! ... it was a lot like watching Peter/Nicki, though.

31st-Jul-2007 12:59 am (UTC) - Re: HEROES :D
Like Chazz!? XD No wonder the female lead refused to let him posess her ;;;;

AHHH... weekdays aren't good for marathons but are good for dinners xD Not today though. I'm having a bout of sore eyes and am put at home to rest T > T After National Day weekend would be fine XD I'm afraid I'll have to invade your place ;;;;

XD Watching that vid is like watching a good boy trying too hard to be badass hahaha

Hello! Are you going to go and see "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry"? It looks like your kind of movie!
30th-Jul-2007 06:09 pm (UTC) - XDDD HI ARRCH! XDDD
Hi, Arrch! ♥ GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU! ;) And omg, I was so thrilled to hear that the movie is actually coming out in my country! (Or at least, they showed the trailer for it!) I might go and see it if someone wants to watch it, but it's not really the kind of show I'd watch on my own - bit slapstick for me. ;) Also I am not a great Adam Sandler fan. But hey! I could advance the same arguments for Blades of Glory, and it looks like I loved it anyway! XDDDD Hope you're doing good and that life brings you lots of fun and great movies to watch!

OH OH did you watch Die Hard 4.0, if it's available over there? I loved it to pieces. ♥
