I loved chapter 55 of Ouran. I am so buying volume 12 when it comes out (hm, up to volume 9 in bookstores only so far... sigh). It looks like Haruhai's slowly (and somewhat unconsciously?) waking up to her feelings for Tamaki. :P
Loads of thanks to [profile] devel_icious for kindly getting the scanlations from the forum for me :)

One Piece just keeps getting more and more interesting. Wonder what role Shichibukai Bartholomew Kuma is gonna have in this arc. I wanna see Nami join up with the rest - it's just a little sad that she's out of the interesting battle the others are in. Or perhaps she has a different, equally important role away from it..? Hmm... Like Sanji in Water 7, perhaps.... *looks thoughtful*

Bleach. It's okay I guess... I'm curious to see what Neliel's released form is. At least now we're seeing a bit of Ishida and Renji's fight with Zaeruapollo or whatever his name is.

Lovely Complex. The anime's finished. ;_; Well, it was fun while it lasted. Kansai-ben was fun to listen to. All the nan de ya nen here and there. XD

Eyeshield 21. Hiruma's tactics... Unexpected, as always. I wonder how he's going to think his way out of this game with the Hakushuu Dinos. But that chapter 52 a week or two back was totally for HirumaxMamori fans (like yours truly). Oh the implications of that scene - plain and innocent though it was.

Star Wars.
I got such a shock (about a month back) when I found out that Mara Jade died in Sacrifice. My initial reaction was: WHAT? MARA DIED???
I flopped around in shock the rest of the afternoon until I got home, located my fellow Star Wars freak Johnson and yelled (online) at him that "MARA JADE DIED!"
I speculated that it was likely that Jacen killed her. (Yesterday when I was in Borders for a while, I found the book and flipped through it to find the part and yes, it was Jacen. Horrid thing is that no one knows he did it - yet. Though I think Ben has a vague suspicion.)
Can't wait for the next book - Inferno - to come out here. Hopefully there's more Jaina and Jag in it. hahah! I do so want those two together... But it looks like Jaina doesn't want to get involved with anyone anymore. Wants to concentrate on being the Sword of the Jedi.

Oh, FYI, Mara Jade = Luke Skywalker's wife. Jaina and Jacen = twin daughter and son of Princess Leia and Han Solo. Jag (Jagged Fel) = a friend and old flame (and potentially more?) of Jaina. Ben = son of Luke and Mara.

Yea, all this is considered canon under the Expanded Universe (EU). Heh.

Still not quite happy about Sho's new hairstyle. I want the Mimura hair back. *sobs*

Dang. Looks like Nino got voted Best Actor in the Nikkan poll for the recent drama season. =__=

The Ohmiya kiss... Ew. Are they for real? (Gomen to the Ohmiya fans. It's just not my thing, ne. ^.^; )

Watched some of the Johnny's Sports Day 2003 just now. I do like watching Sho-kun score goals. :D
And seeing MatsuJun hang out with Toma and Takki is cool. (I don't know why - I just like to see that they have friends in JE outside of their own group :P ) I still like that they started the dance battle with Takki and Jun. hehe... I get the impression that those two suit each other well as friends. They both come off as the dashing, flashy type. (Flashy, but Jun seems to have a quieter, almost bookworm-ish side to him. Dunno about Takki though.)

Watched both Pikanchi movies recently. Thought Pikanchi started out well, but got a bit too dreary towards the end, although the look on Ohno's face - when the girl he was interested in came up at the end and kissed Nino - was utterly priceless!
Pikanchi Double was much better (and the guys looked a good deal better too - except for Nino). Double had more things going for it, I thought. And all I could think about every time I saw Chuu's (Sho) wife was: Kiyora. Nodame Cantabile. Violin. Concert mistress. Kiyora. :P The baby was cute. :P

Jun did good. :) He carried the 'heavier' scenes well - like when he sat in his room, thinking that his friends must have forgotten about him already since he "betrayed" their home. Ohno was another interesting figure to watch in Double. All that fumbling and stumbling. Good acting there. Aiba was unfortunately rather sidelined in Double. Sho was not half bad. I thought he was fairly good when portraying the conflicted character. Nino's part confused me a bit. I didn't really get his role in the show. He didn't exactly do much or have anything very significant going for him, considering that he got all that screen time. *scratches head*

This is going to be really random for me to be commenting on this ha ha But I was looking for translated V6 stuff and stumbled across your lj...and am a Star Wars fan so had to click the tag >< And...the whole arc where they kill off Chewie, Anakin Solo, Mara Jade, and make Jacen a Sith and then kill him off...it just upset me so much. :( I stopped reading those books when I read Chewie died but have read about some of the other stuff... I just didn't like it :(

I'm still managing to persevere through the series since my favourites are still alive and kicking, like Leia and Jaina and Jag. The way they're dragging out Jaina's and Jag's relationship is kinda tiresome though.

See, my favorite was Jacen :( I felt like what they did to him was like a character killer... As I kid I read the young Jedi Knight series and to see them basically take the Anakin Skywalker story from the movies and then use it on him upset me >< Plus, I just couldn't get over killing Chewie D: How is the relationship between Leia and Han with Chewbacca gone and now Anakin gone? I know it really messed with Han...

Oh, Han and Leia are fine now. Han eventually adjusted. They're taking care of Jacen's daughter now. :)
