The music in the second episode reminded me alot of Kurosagi. A bit of a random thing to say, but it did. :-)

Hana Yori Dango 2 seems cool so far, but I'm not feelin' the depiction of the black dudes in the 1st episode. The thief and the thugs were all black, throwing the word "f***" around every other word. I felt uneasy about that, because it gives the impression to those who may be watching in Japan, th...

Yeah, It's been on yesasia for a while. I only saw it for the 1st time in a cellphone store on Saturday, but it's exclusive to this ONE particular store for the time being and they've only got it available in pink and as fly as the pink looks, I'd rather have the black. Shame it doesn't come in whit...

Ah well. His loss.

I love me some Namie Amuro. Her music is hot. Can't wait for some new material from her.

I want the Sony Ericsson Z610i . It's such a Japanese lookin' phone. Not sure when it's out in the UK though and knowing my luck - it won't launch on my network and I'll have to wait months until it's available on it. I'm due for an upgrade and want this phone NOW! *lol* The phone I need in my life ...

Hikaru Utada needs to be my wife.

I'll be waiting in the wings if she ever divorces. :glare:

I think it's GREATLY underappreciated. :x Probably because the drama came up around the same time as the likes of Sapuri and Kekkon dekinai otoko . Any drama with a Johnny's in it always seems to attract attention and get a topic go up with 100's of posts related to the starring Johnny and not the s...

^^^ I never said I wanted Akira's family to be up in arms about it. But they didn't even seem shocked. At least an "Ehhh!?!?" woulda been cool. For comic relief if nothing else. At least from Karou who perhaps wouldn't understand how two men can actually love each other. But I do think it was nice h...

^^^ Hmmmm. I guess so. Either way. As I mentioned before - I felt their relationship was the most interesting because of the way it affected the 2 of them so greatly. The way Pinko had to deal with knowing he may not win Akira's heart. And Akira not realising how deep his feelings were for him. It's...

This is a great show. I can't remember why I downloaded it, but I did. And after watching episode 1, I got hooked and then downloaded the rest in in quick succession! :lol All of the characters in this are likeable except Soari or whatever her name is. The chick just annoys me. :glare: I do think th...

I agree wid ya mizune. And I definetely agree with ya zhongie about Pinko. He surprised me too. He started off as this really over the top and stereotypical gay character, but he began to develop into a meaningful force who was detrimental to Akira's development as a person. I personally felt out of...
