alianora: Akira's Nobuta Power pose (NwP: Kon)
Hana Kimi, as Ive mentioned before, is the story of a girl who dresses like a boy to go to school with her idol. Who knows she's a girl. But she doesn't know he knows. You know?

But! there are two different versions of this story! in one, there are boys in towels, boys in nothing, boys in dresses, and the whole thing is made up of complete and total crack. in the other, a girl makes tragic monkey faces, i dont know the names of half the characters, and there is the best drama boyfriend in the history of the world.

Um. that makes this sound BAD, but it ISNT, i swear. The TW version of Hana Kimi follows the manga much closer, only I didnt like the manga, so..yeah.

Regardless, Rui Xi and Quan might be one of my absolute favorite relationships in drama HISTORY. Quan is totally my boyfriend. Also, he's very hot.



So, to sum up, we have a cute girl pretending to be a boy. A hot boy who knows she's a girl. And a poorly hidden love between the two of them. And this scene is ADORABLE.



We'll be able to have hot pot together! )

Ive been stuck at home for the past two days with Fever McClingypants, so while he was napping and in between Sesame Street songs, I made icons.

It's impossible to watch tv you are interested in with a kid around. Especially if that tv is in a foreign language and requires enough concentration to read subtitles.

So, icons! Comment and credit, no alternations, blah blah blah.

-Jupiter/Mako is HOT-



-Serenity flings explosions, which is quite possibly my favorite part-


-Dark Mercury/Nephrite, my secondary OTP-

TW Hana Kimi: You know what would make this show even better? MORE MAKEOUTS.

Xiu Yi was reminded that he was definitely still asleep when Quan leaned forward, running his tongue over Rui Xi's surprisingly curved hip before dropping his head down further still.

AU of the scene where Quan gets drunk and kisses Rui Xi. Genderbendy, as Xiu Yi thinks Rui Xi is a boy.

I did finish watching Hana Kimi tw, and i DID enjoy it, for all that I sometimes wanted to force Ella to look in the mirror and say, LOOK! LOOK WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO YOURSELF! STOP MAKING MONKEY FACES. The monkeys don't like it!

There was a number of glossed over storylines, or storylines that seemed..wildly incomplete..hey, look, it's Quan's brother who he hasn't spoken to in years! Let's have him come and be hostile, and then GO AWAY before anything is resolved! Let's have Rui Xi have some boy force himself on her and be SEXUALLY ASSAULTED! But it's ok, the boy who did it is a good guy, and he was really shocked to find out you were a boy! Wow, does he feel silly! Good thing Quan showed up to pull him off you before he got your pants off!

I AM AFRAID I WILL HURT SOMEONE IF I DISCUSS THIS STORYLINE, SO I AM GOING TO JUMP AHEAD TO THE ALL TOO BRIEF FALLOUT AND THEN STRAIGHT PAST EVERYTHING ELSE TO THE NAKED AND THE CUTE

What? WHAT? WHAT? 15 episodes and I get NOTHING?

No kissing? No hugging? NOT EVEN A REAL LOVE CONFESSION?!

I GET NOTHING?!

HANA KIMI TW - YOU FAIL.

*scowls*

And no, the other kisses dont count! There wasnt one single kiss where both were fully there and participating - I AM VERY UNHAPPY.

TAIWAIN, YOU ARE ON NOTICE.

*wails pathetically*

Im halfway through ep 5 of the tw Hana Kimi, and I have to say (and i really really dont want to), that although, on the whole, I care about the jdrama characters more - like, all of the jdrama characters, i love like burning, whereas i..really dont care about many of the tw characters - tw's Quan and Rui Xi's relationship have Japan's Sano and Mizuki's asses KICKED.

Im five episodes in! Kisses! Hugs! Flirting!

About episode three, Quan starts..messing with her. He calls it "teasing," i call it "flirting." Im just waiting to see how long it takes him to realize that. He's getting all up in her space and messing with her, he's catching her full on CHECKING HIM OUT when he's changing, and he's GRINNING about it. FLIRTING. Ive seen more than one hair muss that was more of a face caress, and the kiss...

oh, the kiss.

i have mixed feelings about the kiss, because yes, he was drunk, and she was unwilling, and that's BAD, because she was so upset and i dont blame her, but that KISS. I kinda maybe rewatched it maybe 10 times, counting the number of times they've replayed it for me, too. Because, SERIOUSLY. if she was actually kissing back, instead of making the monkey frown of horror (REALLY, I DO NOT BLAME HER. SHE IS VERY UNHAPPY AND HAS THE RIGHT TO BE. VIOLATED. I GET THAT), that kiss would have been saying UNF BABY. With just Quan doing the kissing, it STILL made me say NGH, so obviously, that boy is doing SOMETHING VERY VERY RIGHT.

PLEASE TELL ME WE GET MORE KISSES. MAKE OUTS. THIS IS WHAT I WANT.

And the hug! He jumps! He makes it! IN FRONT OF ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE, she throws herself at him and he grabs her and she's standing on tippy toe and they're hugging and they're grinning and hugging and grinning and i think i died from the absolute CUTE. and then she gets yelled at to get off the field, and they pull back and are HOLDING HANDS for a second and beaming at each other and seriously, DEAD FROM CUTE.

so, as much as I lovelovelove Sano and Mizuki, I gotta say, the passion these two have is miles more than what we saw from Japan.

And while I love Mizuki..Rui Xi kinda kicks her ass, too. Seriously! Girl is fierce. When she gets pissed, it's awesome. At one point, she is getting stupid nasty notes left on her desk, and when she gets sick of it, she SLAMS her hands on the desk and she starts barking orders and AWESOME. I like my girls with attitude, and Mizuki never really pulls off that much of an attitude. And, at a different time, eyebrow boy (the..high jump rival, whatever his name is), is needling Quan and Rui Xi really does not put up with that shit, which cracks both me AND Quan up. I think i love her.

Now, dont get carried away, there is alot i dont like about the show, and most of it has to do with what i disliked about the manga. like, OH MY GOD DONT YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT AMERICA? WE CELEBRATE VALENTINE'S DAY HERE TOO. THIS IS NOT A NEW THING JEEZUS. but, again, that's the manga's fault. as is the fact that Quan is back to highjumping by ep 4. NO! I WILL NEVER HIGH JUMP AGAIN! YOU ARE A STRANGER AND WEIRD! to I WILL JUMP FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE IN MEEEE in 2 weeks? Um. Bullshit? Yeah, that's the term.

Plus, honestly, the other characters? i just dont care. In the slightest. I mean, tw Nakatsu's funny, but I dont love him like I do Nakatsu himself. And the others barely register. I cant even TELL you who the hell the other two guys probably are. I know one is Nakatsu and one is Kayashima, and the others? Eeh. Don't care. And i get really bored if it isnt about Rui Xi and Quan, so ive been doing some skimming, which is exactly how i got through the manga! Lots of skimming! and the doctor's scenes are SO BORING OMG.

In contrast, I love almost every single kooky character in the jdrama. Nanba is a lot less..creepy than Senior Nan, and YangYang is funny, but I liked Nakoe better because we got to know him more. plus, the conflict wasnt wrapped up in a split second for NO APPARENT REASON. i mean, the dorm heads themselves are AWESOME, all of dorm 2 kicks ASS, and Sekime is my baby. I love the jdrama cast and characters! this just isnt..gelling as well for me.

but, again, im not a manga fan at the best of times, and it might just be that I cant figure out who is who thanks to the name changes. Who ARE those two guys supposed to be? *ponders* and i refuse to go look at the manga again to figure it out.

Honestly, the only thing that came out of the manga that I really enjoyed was this:

cut for your pleasure )
There are so many many ways for me to say, UNF.

ETA: SHE TOTALLY WAS JUST CHECKING OUT HIS ASS IN HIS SWIM SUIT. And he *knows* she did it, and he just..grinned! *hands*

ETAA: I find myself really noticing that she isnt a boy. I mean, she and Quan go for a walk, and i find myself staring at their crotches and comparing.

I would be worried about being a perv, but i embrace it, so hey. but seriously, girl NEEDS to be stuffing her pants. or else the other boys are going to start to talk about how tiny she must be.
