I do not understand why no-one else wants to debate the positioning of those ubiquitous fantasy maps in the front vs back vs endpapers of books. It makes me sad that other people's brains are not as fun as mine.

Waiting on subs for Buzzer Beat ep 10, but I would like to register my total astonishment that epic stupid is not going down and people are actually acting like mature, responsible adults. IN A JDRAMA. I AM SHOCKED.

Luckily I have Orthros no Inu to combat that.

Spoilers for Sailor Fuku to Kikanju. Yeah, I know you're intrigued now! )

I am back from exciting times in New York! I will post about those eventually, but it might take a while because they were numerous and awesome, and because I have epic packing and cleaning and procrastinating to do. In the meantime, I sat down to catch up on my drama-watching and just about died from ep 4. The recap is way too long, but I tried to put some context in this time so it's more a recap and less Random Moments Fiona Thinks Are Funny.

spoilery and not actually very funny, sorry )

The thing about jdramas is that sometimes it's what you bring to the drama that makes the viewing experience. And sometimes you really don't have to do a thing. Also, "BEST DRAMA EVER" does not usually mean "best" drama, but rather "most entertaining due to X number of factors, including but not limited to unintentional hilarity."

Okay, it's late, I'm tired, the point is, I felt compelled to share a number of insights that I feel really get at the thematic purpose of Orthros no Inu ep 2. Yes, there's the whole bit where the one person who gets killing powers is the one person least likely to use them, the balance of killing and healing, balance balance balance of the forces!, judgment and power over life and death, who should get that power, etc. etc. But otherwise, this is pretty much what the drama looks like in my brain.

Jdramas summary: Ryuzaki Shinji is a mysterious and ambitious man with a wicked heart, who possesses the power to heal pain and illness with the touch of his hand. Aoi Ryosuke, on the other hand, is a high school teacher with a gentle heart, but who has the ability to kill with his touch. The two happen to meet, resulting in a battle of good and evil.

(And there's a fairly badass lady cop, and some other people who run around in lab coats.)

But they drip so beautifully! )

And I should stop now before I say anything else monumentally stupid. But in other news, I’m reading the manga Skip Beat! and I LOVE IT. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
