HOLIDAY: Santa Book

TW and the Hana Kimi Problem

See, i COULD be relaxing in my chair right now, watching Yamapi fuck up another time with another picture opportunity in Proposal Daisakusen, but I have found that i cannot concentrate on things like "plot" at this moment in time, as I spent ALL DAMN DAY rearranging my new (NEW? DID I MENTION THE NEW JOB? AS A FUCKING SPECIAL ED PRESCHOOL TEACHER? HAVE I MENTIONED THE UNCONTROLLABLE WEEPING THAT ONLY STOPS WHEN I THINK ABOUT MY SHINY NEW PAYCHECK?) classroom to pass insane standards about how many types of paint i have out and how close the reading center is to the block area.

So, instead, i am trying (again) to watch the tw version of Hana Kimi.

Now, with apologies to biases, i LOVE the jdrama version. And I love Sano. And I am very very fond of all the boys and Mizuki and have a crush on Nataksu, maybe, but i dont tell rinalin about that, because then she'd never let me talk about Sano. I LOVE YOU, RINNY!

Anyway, so the tw hana kimi does not equal the jdrama hana kimi. the tw follows the manga much more closely. And Ella looks..extremely boyish. And Im not a manga fan, and i had to skip the entire first chapter when i was reading it because I JUST COULDNT SEE HER HUMILIATE HERSELF LIKE THAT. And no, i dont care than Mizuki was an ink drawing, IM JUST NOT MADE OF THAT STERN OF STUFF. I have a very well honed embarrassment squick and HATE watching people do stuff that would make me cry if i did them, because i would die of sheer humiliation.

So, so far, ive gotten five minutes in, which, believe it or not, is better than the first time i tried to watch this show, and ive only had to pause it twice!

Moving on:

HELLOOO TW SANO. You arent as pretty as Oguri Shun, by my standards, but you are very very pretty. Of course, the face Ella is making at you right now is very tragic and makes me want to run away. Three pauses.

Pause count: four. I got through watching the whole "I like you!" scene by watching the subtitles through my fingers with only one headphone in. Also, does she ALWAYS walk like that? All...lumbering and weird?

10 minutes! Im so PROUD of myself. Also, tw Nakatsu has known tw Mizuki for less than five minutes and is already trying to get him/her to take off his/her pants. I FIND THIS IMPRESSIVE. Admittedly, within the first five minutes of the jdrama, Nakatsu had already groped Mizuki's boobs/chest, so..im not..sure who's winning, here. LMAO LMAO FOREVER HE JUST DROPPED HIS OWN PANTS.

Pause count: Six. I know that it's in the manga, but Im going to have to shoot her because no one is allowed to be this stupid. Yes, of COURSE you and Sano are sharing a bed. Gah. GROW A BRAIN PLEASE.

Also, I feel the need to point out that those pants are tight enough to show off what she don't got, if you know what i mean. I think you will need to start stuffing your pants, girlie.

*cracks up* I can already tell that Nan's gay lover admirer is going to be a FAVORITE. His little bitchy foot stomp is ADORABLE.

OK OK I FIND HER ADORABLE GEEZE. All it took was for her to block the wind from sleeping boy. CUTE. Also, i really have to learn their tw names.

Cheesy running sequence=FABULOUS

Pause count: seven. HIS EYES ARE OPEN. THIS WOULD IMPLY THAT HE IS NOT ASLEEP. Perhaps you should learn the difference before talking about how handsome he is? TO HIS FACE? oh..well, he is asleep? DID YOU FORGET TO CLOSE YOUR EYES, BOY?

You know, i cant even imagine how that scene where she faints and Quan picks her up was filmed - "Ok, now grab her boob." "WHAT?" "GRAB HER BOOB. How else will you know she's a girl?" "Can't I fake it?" "No, we want a full on boob grab on national television. Go for it."

HOLY CRAP, she can hit.

I find myself, not so much distracted by the overacting, because it's a twdrama, and they kind of thrive on that, but on Ella's tragic unattractive overacting FACES. They hurt me. Physically. I am in pain every time she screws up her face in thought. MAKE HER STOP.

Ok fine. it's cute. ill watch more.

But tomorrow, Yamapi and fairies and time travel. Or I shall attempt. Maybe i should write my yuletide, huh? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?

Comments

Too late! You told me!

*dances around Toma-chan who has a new Drama in January!*

Doesn't the boy ever sleep? I don't even know. Anyway! New Drama! Co-starring Jun's dance school exGF and BFF from Kimi wa Petto!

It's about forensic school? And murders? And Toma has a split personality? IDK.
..Toma gets some really weird dramas. think it's because Johnny hasnt debuted him yet, so he's still technically a Junior? Is it rebellion, maybe? *ponders*
Aw, no need for apologies! Everyone loves different things so don't let my unbridled hatred ruin your party, I know I always feel bad when I go with a friend to the movies and I love it and they hate it. And to be honest, it's definitely not as bad as I keep saying it is, I was entertained by the series in general, it was just specific things that made me bitter. Toma, however, nearly makes up for it all by himself. *loves Toma*

I am SO PROUD OF YOU, however, for giving TWHK another go, and well done for sticking through the entire first episode! I know it's hard work, I love the series and it took me two attempts, but you're over the first hurdle! You should be addicted by the end of episode two, I think that's about where my heart melted and I started not noticing Ella's disturbing facial contortions. I really really hated her the first time I tried it and I recall ringing up the friend who'd given me the episodes and screeching at her, "SHE'S HIDEOUS! NO WONDER THEY CAN'T TELL SHE'S A GIRL, SHE LOOKS MORE LIKE A MONKEY!" etc etc, and overreaction I'm now quite ashamed of considering I love Ella like burning. Especially in pictures like this:



Glad to hear you're loving the little gay one, whatshisname? Ling Ling? He's adorable. And the Nakatsu guy is totally adorkable. Hell, I love them all, even the Kayashima-guy is hilarious. They start wheeling him into scenes, it's fabulous, everyone will be standing around talking and he'll just levitate into the scene and they'll all stop and stare. LOL TAIWAN.

I completely understand about the wincing through things - I had to fast-forward a couple of chunks of It Started With a Kiss and there were even more segments that I had to endure with a pillow over my head. No doubt it looked ridiculous but I just cannot sit through such awkward interactions. OW.

And go you for sticking with your new job! I'm midway through my grad dip ed but I'm planning on teaching high school, there's no way I could do preschool, let alone special ed! You are one brave woman, that's all I can say. GANBATTE~!
SHE'S HIDEOUS! NO WONDER THEY CAN'T TELL SHE'S A GIRL, SHE LOOKS MORE LIKE A MONKEY

YES. Her faces are very monkey-like, and i HAAAATE it. im hoping i will become immune to it, soon, as otherwise, im going to have a screaming nervous breakdown and try and claw her face off through my computer screen. which would be bad, because i love my computer very very much. His name is Madmartigan, and we are very close *strokes his shiny cover.*

anyway, something less about my bizarrely close relationship with my computer and more about Ella...oh right! hotness. yes, she is gorgeous when she isnt making the tragic monkey faces, and i think she does much better in quieter scenes. like the blocking the wind scene. that was pretty and sweet and i kinda fell in love with both of them right there.

the whole preschool sped thing is just another in a long chain of OH GOD WHY AM I A TEACHER WHEN I HATE EVERY SECOND OF IT? the trick to this one is that last year in Alaska was supposed to be my last year of teaching. Unfortunately, money trumps all, and so..here i am. bleh. the sped isnt new, but the preschool is. should be interesting.

But why are you watching twdramas if not for cringing? They've made cringe-inducing a beautiful artform. Accept it, embrace it, love it.

And I actually drifted off this Hana Kimi once the initial wackiness weared off. Obviously, I'm not cut for subtlety in my dramas.

Have you seen Brown Sugar Macchiato? It's kinda my favorite twdrama at the moment, and subtle has no place in it. It's completely wacky, on crack, and completely implausible. Naturally, I adore it.
Sounds like my kind of drama XD. *opens mysoju in new tab*
AHAHAAHA, excellent! you must tell me how you like it. *uses one more BSM icon in celebration*
It sounds right up my alley. I'm bookmarking it so I can start watching it at the weekend!
I didn't even notice the overacting in Hana Kimi. Seriously! The story itself is over the top and ridiculous that I thought the weird faces were a deliberate choice meant to honour the cracky nature of the manga.

Or something.

You know, i cant even imagine how that scene where she faints and Quan picks her up was filmed - "Ok, now grab her boob." "WHAT?" "GRAB HER BOOB. How else will you know she's a girl?" "Can't I fake it?" "No, we want a full on boob grab on national television. Go for it."

Apparently there were rumours about Ella and Sano!Actor. They have a little behind the scenes segment about it at the end of. . episode four, I think?

Ella's tragic unattractive overacting FACES.

I'm torn. Sometimes I'm on the "she looks like a monkey!" front, and sometimes I think she's absolutely adorable. I really want to watch a series where Ella doesn't spend all of her time scrunching up her face in the most ridiculous ways imaginable.

Also, I feel the need to point out that those pants are tight enough to show off what she don't got, if you know what i mean. I think you will need to start stuffing your pants, girlie.

I spend a lot of time staring at her hips and ass. She's curvy! How could the guys not notice how curvy "he" is (boyish face or not)?

Ill buy that. I just..Ella's faces are just..so unattractive. *is shallow* and make her look like a monkey! And she's so pretty! *helpless hands*

there were rumours about Ella and Sano!Actor.

EXCELLENT. I WILL BE LOOKING INTO THIS.

How could the guys not notice how curvy "he" is

not to mention how could they fail to notice that she doesnt have a PENIS? not even accidental naked issues, i mean..it's OBVIOUS she's got nothing. She should at least be stuffing her pants.

Also, two eps in, and he is FLIRTING with her. I dont even think he realizes he is doing it, either! He thinks it's hilarious when she checks him out while he's shirtless! He is getting all up in her personal space to tease her about her bathroom bag! HE IS FLIRTING. And it's adorable!
I just..Ella's faces are just..so unattractive.

I don't want to say any more, in case it sounds like I'm bashing her. But, yes. Yes, she's so pretty and her faces are very much *not.*

She should at least be stuffing her pants.

The only crossdressing heroine I've *ever* seen doing that was Polly Perks in a Terry Pratchett novel. The rest of them don't bother.

(Although, if she's as incredibly *naive* as manga!Mizuki, she probably doesn't even realize guys should have a penis.)

HE IS FLIRTING. And it's adorable!

See? See? Doesn't Hana Kimi TW have some really awesomely cute things to recommend it? How can you not fall in love with that smile when Quan is flirting with/teasing her (and I'm never going to get the TW names down!)

that's because, in Terry Pratchett's world, girls have brains. of course, now i am honestly trying to remember if whatsherface in that stupid american movie..that girl who annoys the piss out of me..Amanda Bynes! her! if she stuffed her pants in that movie where she crossdresses..

Although, if she's as incredibly *naive* as manga!Mizuki, she probably doesn't even realize guys should have a penis

that..is an incredibly possible thing. and very disturbing. WHY are all the girls in Asian dramas so *cute* and *naive* and *dumb* like these are all GOOD QUALITIES? I WANT MORE CHICKS KICKING ASS.
