Manga I've been reading lately

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

Two completely different titles, but what they have in common is that, unfortunately, I didn't enjoy them as much as I thought I would. (Coinicentally, both are published in the US by Seven Seas, but since there are plenty of Seven Seas titles I do like, I don't hold that against them.)

The High School Life of a Fudanshi: About a straight high school boy who loves BL manga (in other words, a "fudanshi"), who wishes he could find other male pals who share his hobby. It sounded like fun, and it started off cute enough, with the main character hovering around the BL section of the bookstore, but being too embarrassed to get the books he wants while a couple of girls are hanging out there. But the humor mostly revolves around, "I find BL manga hot, but I am not gay! Yup, I am completely straight even if I love BL manga!" Which, let me tell you, gets old pretty fast, and wasn't that funny the first time around. Also the dude is kinda creepy--not because he likes BL, but because when his male friend tells him about how he got groped by a stranger, it becomes fodder for his BL fantasies. Eww.

Plum Crazy! Tales of a Tiger-Striped Cat: This one I didn't hate, just have somewhat mixed feelings about. It's a G-rated title about an adorable cat named Plum, who lives happily with her owner, a teenage boy named Taku, who is more responsible and practical than his kind but ditzy mom. Life is good until Mom adopts a stray kitten named Snowball, who gets into a lot of mischief and is always picking on poor Plum. On one hand, kitties being adorable--yay! On the other, I end up feeling bad for Plum for getting beat up on by Snowball so often. Still, fans of other cute kitty manga like Chi's Sweet Home might like this one.

I'll do another post later with more positive reviews.

Hm, the list is pretty animal heavy this week. Maybe because it felt like everyone's an abuser and the world is going to Hell? *sigh* If anyone hears about Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert abusing people don't tell me. Ugh. :((

May we all have an amazing week, please stay safe, and remember, love trumps hate. <3
Also, good luck to those of us who have to deal with ~relatives over Thanksgiving.

The Red Turtle

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

I recently watched The Red Turtle on dvd--it's an animated movie co-produced by Studio Ghibli and Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit. It's a beautiful film, and while it doesn't have the same look as the classic Miyazaki films, there's definitely a Ghibli feel to it.

Sirius business

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

OK, sorry for the bad pun--I couldn't resist! A little rant about Sirius follows...

I was listening to the recent Alohomora podcast episode about Sirius (Episode 230) plus the recap episode (which is linked on the Episode 231 page). There was a lot of debate about Sirius, with strong feelings from both fans and anti-fans, about whether he was redeemable and whether he should be forgiven for the Shrieking Shack prank. The consensus among the hosts in the recap, along with many of the fans, was basically, "Teenagers do dumb things because they don't think before they act, but they grow out of it, and the dumb things they did shouldn't be held against them for the rest of their life." (To be fair, they say that the bullying and the prank are not OK, but are trying to make the point that Sirius isn't irredeemable.)

Domo World

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

More NHK World videos, this time Domo World! Domo is the fuzzy brown monster who is NHK's mascot, and NHK created an incredibly detailed stop-capture animation video of a prehistoric Domo World, showing Domo's ancient origins. All of the little Domos and other creatures and objects were all created by hand, as the "Behind the Scenes" video shows. I've seen the video clips air on NHK several times, and I never get tired of watching them--there's so much going on that I keep finding new things to look at.

There are 4 videos, but the 5 minute videos are abbreviated versions of the 15 minute videos, so you won't miss anything by skipping the 5 minute ones.

Kurara: The Dazzling Life of Hokusai's Daughter

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

Too tired to write up a lengthy post, so I'll share this link to an interesting NHK program that I recently watched: Kurara: The Dazzling Life of Hokusai's Daughter. It's a dramatization of the life of O-Ei, the daughter of the legendary artist Hokusai, showing how devoted she was to her father and his art, and how she blossomed as an artist in her own right. It's in two parts, and the first part has a short documentary segment before the drama starts. The videos will be up until Nov. 19th.

Which reminds me that there is also an anime movie about O-Ei called Miss Hokusai, which I haven't seen yet but is on my to-watch list.

FirewhiskeyFic Strikes Again!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So in case you missed it, there was another ~episode of [community profile] firewhiskeyfic a couple weekends ago in which I participated.
Here's the proof. *g*
width="300"

If you want to laugh, you can read my drunken masterpiece, Feud there, although I'll be reposting it in a minute. And look! I actually spelled the title correctly this time.
It's a Snupin fic with a side of giboted Sirius (heh, don't ask, just read it to see what that means).

Also, I won an award!

Best Use of Prompt is a fun one. Although one of these days I may get the one to which I most aspire, "Most Incoherent". ;)

Thanks to all who participated and to the awesome mods! It was tremendous fun, as always. <3
