So we at Karoshi have been planning on doing this for a while now, but because of various reasons, we did not get off our asses and do it until today. We wanted to do it when there were other singaporeans bloggers who did it… but eh (there were two more places but I dont remember who, my appologies). This will be a two parter weekend exclusive (maybe three-parter, but I have no idea because we’ve lost our loli).

Let’s get started, shall we? *warning: if you have a slow computer, you may be here for a while* (Read More »»»)

Let’s finish this up, shall we? I’ll eventually get off my butt and fix it up with the suggestions I’ve been getting from all over the place and then post it in one final post. The rest.

Oh, and seeing as the first semester has finally ended, I’ll try to get more posts in. Try being the important word, here. (Read More »»»)

385. Nodame Cantabile Ani-Episode 2 – Special Appearance By Madonna

So it’s Mine‘s turn to shine… I guess.

It may just be me, but the way the episode opened with Mine mimicking Chiaki’s entrance the previous episode made me really lawl. I’m not quite sure why, but I’m guessing it’s because of the dorama. Seeing as it’s already finished, I know who Mine really is and I’ve already established his character in my mind. So just seeing him act like Chiaki was funny becuase we all know that in the end, he sucks too -at first anyway-.

What really surprised me about the animated version of Mine is his hair. Usually it’s the live action adaptations that just cannot do animated hair well yet this time, I think Mine’s hair in the dorama is much cooler. It’s supposed to be wild and big, but in the anime, he’s sort of got a buzz cut going. Not wild at all. I’m greatly dissapointed. (Read More »»»)

384. Honey and Clover Live Action Movie – Slice of My Life

As I barely begin this post, I’m already thinking of stopping and going back to rewatch it. Dont misunderstand, this movie was not the best movie I’ve ever seen -unfortunately- but it was still good enough. I’ve been hyping up this moment for myself ever since I heard about it so I’m pretty damn surprised at how I approached this movie with an open mind rather than in rabid fangirlboy mode. When I watched Hana Yori Dango S2 and the Prince of Tennis movie, I hyped myself up so much, anything they spewed at me, I would’ve loved even if it was total crap.

There’s just something different about Honey and Clover. Not a bad thing, but something. Either way, I still liked it and I’m probably going to actually pay to go get myself the legit version. But seeing as it’s a live action adaptation, there was destined to be some dissapointments, right? (Read More »»»)

383. Beauty Pop Volume 1- Zoolander’s Got Nothing

Yeah okay. No surprise here that I picked this up because of the Shoujo Beat logo on the spine. If it wasn’t for that, I’m sure I would’ve passed it by -you know, when you look through the book shelves, you tend to easily skip stuff in the beginning and at the end-.

Either way, after reading this, I’ve decided I want to become… a barber. Yeah. Then I can make “magic”, too… We all can dream right? I always thought becoming a barber would be a really cool job, so later on in life, if all doesn’t go according to plan, I’ll become one. But for now, I’ll have to live it out through Beauty Pop.

Beauty Pop was a surprise. The cover of Kiri wasn’t too appealing at first, but after turning to the back cover to see a sorta-chibi-esque Kiri, I decided to give it a try. It later turns out, that the character designs for the most part are quite pleasing to the eye. Thinking about it now, it is a typical shoujo-esque style, but nothing wrong with that. It’s not as strong as say, Ai Yazawa’s -I’m sure some people understood that part-.

So the story: (Read More »»»)

Surprised? No. Not this time. I KNEW the anime’s plot was going to be awesome going into it, so this high level of awesome-ness did not take my by surprise like the dorama did. It seems that it wasn’t a surprise in Japan either according to ANS:” Nodame Cantabile Debut Sets All Time Late Night Anime Ratings Record

“All time record”, they say. No surprises here. No surprises here. I loved it. I loved it. -Okay, I should stop repeating myself-. You know how sometimes the animated version of a manga can be a bit slow because you already know what’s happening? Yeah, didn’t happen here. I enjoyed every minute of it. And speaking of manga adaptation, this show was supposed to be pretty loyal to the manga. Truth is, I’ve only read one volume and I dont remember much, but it was pretty much the animated version of the dorama. I’m not complaining, though. I LOVED that too.

And you know what else I love? J.C. Staff. (Read More »»»)

There comes a time in every boy’s life when he turns the ripe old age of 18. Time to get cracking on those H-sites and be conscience free.

I think I’ve out-grown anime. Silly cartoons. Here are parts 1, 2, and 3. Suggestions always appreciated. (Read More »»»)
