Awesome drama is awesome.  
Now I know I'm already 24897923502513 years late for this, but I just finished watching Ryuusei no Kizuna yesterday! I was so very, very impressed. The storyline knows not to mock the viewers' intelligence and I'm utterly pleased by that. Hm, wait, this warrants giant text.

Ryuusei no Kizuna is one of the best dramas I've ever seen EVER. 8Dv

I haven't seen a lot, but still. O:

So anyway, it had my brain cells working ALL THE TIME. I'm glad I guessed right most of the time, though. You know, the sudden turn in events? Me and Adrianne were always into serious!discussion mode and pausing our streaming every now and then to think about the probable suspect/who gets caught/whatever. XD

And Kaname Jun = ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

WTHHHH, I died seeing him act like a dork. I mean, I first saw him on RESCUE (yes, I watched RESCUE first *fail*) and seeing him very serious with Katsuragi, I was like, "NOOOO WHO IS THIS I SEE?!?!"

Hm, what else. Ah, I liked it that they didn't focus on the possible love angle between Taisuke and Shizuna--because that would've been kind of wrong (even if they weren't siblings and stuff). They left obvious hints here and there, sappy moments but nothing too heavy. Unlike here, when given that circumstance, dramas tend to swerve to an inappropriate, not to mention liberated, feel of "I WANT TO BED YOU BECAUSE WE'RE NOT SIBLINGS AFTER ALL". Such a sad thing.

So returning to Yukinari and Shizuna... they were just asjkdsahkfsfskl;; I mean, even when I don't write het now I still do like het when I find cute and believable ones. XDv Such an adorable coupling. 8D

Admittedly, even when I initially watched it just to see Ryo's performance, I was definitely awed by Nino. I mean, he can act using just his eyes! It was... somehow scary. And his eyes could turn from an emotion to another really, really quickly! Or portray two different emotions at the same time. I found that fact really awesome. Even when he doesn't put in gestures, his eyes alone tell you exactly what his character is feeling--now that's what you call acting. Now I finally understand what Ryo and Yamapi lacks when it comes to the acting department. D:

On another note, I've started watching 1 Liter of Tears dubbed on one of our local channels. I don't really like how they got straight to the point with the problem of the story, but uh, it can't be helped, I guess, considering the limited timeslot networks allot for their shows. Hm, the voices for the mom, dad, doctor, the friend and the little girl were okay, but Ako's voice is just horrible. D: Haruto's and Aya's are so-so. But the most horrible of all, is well, the freaking theme song and it makes me want to stab the TV every time it plays. "Walang hanggan~" WTEFFF, seriously. ;_______;

If you're eons late, then what am I..?! The downloads are loading my hard drive and lying there, all ready to be watched and waiting for me to click them. That has yet to happen though. xD I feel lazy. But I DO want to have time to watch. D: It's gotten a LOT of great feedback from everyone I know who've seen it!

AND YESSSS NINO. I'd watched Letters from Iwo Jima ages ago without even realizing he was there! (Though this was way before I knew about JE, so yeah. LOL) His character, I've been eyeing, definitely. For him to be in such a big time Hollywood production. GOSH.

AND PFFFT. THEME SONG. LOLOLOLOL. Only for Ryo, I flip the channel to GMA.

Ah, you're so going to find it pretty worth it. I mean, I wasn't all that interested at first when I learned it had things like swindling and revenge and "OMG I'm going to kill you!" moments. I even wondered how the heck were they going to mix in those serious elements when all they had running at the time were relatively normal scenes. O: But yep, they know how to keep the pace going without following a boring pattern *cough*Kurosagi*cough*. Must-watch, I say. :D

I JUST WATCHED LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA LIKE... A FEW MINUTES AGO. *fail* It was heart-wrenching and annoying at the same time--thanks to the illogical way of thinking of some soldiers. =____= But Nino there, definitely made it all worth it, lol. I AM NOT BEING BIASED, 'KAY?

I KNOW. The theme song is capable of driving away to-be-fans. Sad. I bet if they take away that effin' excuse for a song they'd encourage more viewers. Also, yes, I sit through watching it with the hope of seeing Ryo and the rest of NEWS come here. 8D

Woah~ dahan-dahan lng ateh tash! Puso mo! Hehe^^

It's good to here from you Ateh Tash! *hugs* How're you? 'Yan pala ang pinag kaka abalahan mo kaya ka nawala neh? (guess lang XD) Hmm, I never liked Ryo (traumatized bec. of Tat-chan/Kame-chan insulting, I know it's scripted but,,,ugh!) but I sure did noticed Nino the first time I've watched an arashi clip and he looks like L form deatnote in Junsou Paradise SP. I think I'll go check it out^^ gotta watch it in mysoju.

Napalabas na pala ang 1-liter or tears? Halah! di ko man alam, hay~ dat manuod na talaga ako ng tv minsan. Sorry kung tagalog ang maraming sinabi ko neh, headache nanaman (indi ko n tlga papahawaking ng keyboard yung kapatid ko XD) anu pa kayang magandang panuorin ate? Sinu ba kasing kumanta nung sinasabi mong theme song?

AHAHAHA. Hindi rin. Kaya rin ako nawala dahil na-adik ako maglaro ng Pokémon sa PC. (So for the past few days, 'yun lang ang pinagkakaabalahan ko, lol XDD) Ah, I always just laughed at the Ryoda fight--I mean, it's all cooked up by the producers anyway. How does "Who do you think you are?" hurt people anyway? It doesn't hurt a bug. But yeah, the fact that a lot of people got angry at Ryo because of it--it just means he's a good actor, rofl.

Oo kaya! It started this Monday. XD Hm, I haven't watched a lot kasi kaya I can't give you good recs. Most of what I watch pa are dramas with NEWS members, kaya ayun, it'd be biased. D: Ah, Walang Hanggan by Wency Cornejo, lol. So corny. Sobrang out of place pa kapag nilalagay sa scenes. =____=
murasaki_yukimurasaki_yuki on May 27th, 2009 08:17 am (UTC)
Nako! parang ako dati, naadik sa pokemon kaya gameboy ng insan ko hinarbat ko! lol. Naanulang ba kasi ako dun sa Ryoda fight kasi parang...bata talaga si Ueda na binu-bully ni Ryo~ haha^^ sensitive pa naman ako masyado pagdating sa mga bey-bi-bey-bihan ko. ^^ Hindi talaga minsan marunong pumili ng dubber ang GMA (this coming from a GMA fan) pati ung akmang song minsan hindi nila na huhuli. Ala akong amore manuod ng tv ngayun, hehe. I'm not a NEWS fan to begin with pero, I think i'll check them out. ^^ San kaya ako mag umpisa?
i like crispy ones with cheese dips ♥takeoutfries on May 27th, 2009 08:46 am (UTC)
LOL. I guess ganoon lang talaga ang tao sa mga gusto nila. XD Pero like what has been said countless times before, ABS-CBN and GMA have no separate dubbers of their own. There is just one dubbing company to be utilized by both. May mangilan-ngilan na tied sa isang station, but most of the dubbers are freelancers. So, kapag sinabi mong GMA's dubbers suck, para mo na ring sinabi na ABS-CBN's dubbers suck, haha.

Saan ka mag-uumpisa? Hm, why not watch concert footage? :D I recommend Never Ending Wonderful Story. Download mo from NEWShFAN. In four parts 'yun. Pero kung hindi kaya ng hard drive mo 'yung over 1 GB worth ng files, try mo na lang maghanap sa Youtube. I'm sure mayroon 'yan. Panoorin mo na rin 'yung Domoto Kyoudai interview ng NEWS 'nung 8 members pa sila. XD

Nako, napadaldal na naman ako. XP

I haven't watch it yet, but I might consider Ryusei no Kizuna on the "waiting list" after your post. After all, all Ryo's dramas are great (and still haven't watch both Last Friends or 1 litre of tears ;_; fail)

LOL, totally can "hear" the theme song would sound like.
i like crispy ones with cheese dips ♥takeoutfries on May 27th, 2009 08:16 am (UTC)
Oh, totally. :D Well I wouldn't say on a general basis that all Ryo's dramas are great, but most of them do have interesting plotlines. :) Don't worry, I haven't watched Last Friends yet, too. XD But 1 Liter of Tears is good! Well, at least if you fancy total "sniff" dramas. I cried every episode. D8 *crybaby*

ROFL. I could link you, if you want. But I'll save you the dignity from hearing it. Unless you're feeling M, lol. ;P
leo9url: ireachyouuuuuleo9url on May 27th, 2009 01:46 pm (UTC)
I'm a whore for a good cry basically. I'm too fond of sappy dramas though, like I need a strong reason to cry all out XD but my friend told me 1 Liter of Tears one of is the exceptions, perhaps I'll watch it when I get in the mood (totally on crack now lol)

Please? XD
i like crispy ones with cheese dips ♥takeoutfries on May 27th, 2009 03:57 pm (UTC)
AHAHA. 1LoT is probably the sappy drama for you. ;D

O-okay. Don't say I didn't warn you. It sucks that much. =_____=

You can still back out while you can! *___*
leo9url: I am cooler than youleo9url on May 28th, 2009 02:54 am (UTC)
Lol, I think it was a pretty good song by itself actually (What's on my imagination was worse than that XD). But still, imagining that song on 1LoT is...wtf?

Bakit ngayon mo lang pinanood? HAHAHA. :D I completely agree--RnK is definitely one of the best. At least in my opinion. :D Maybe I'm just a huge crybaby, but I became teary-eyed and emotional while watching some of the episodes. *__* Oh, and I haven't read the original novel yet, but it seems to be just as good. <3

Hay, you're right about the implied "sibling" attraction. But I think Taisuke and Shizuna have a stronger bond as siblings. I just don't find it a good idea to alter that bond. ~_~

If you watched Ryuusei for Ryo, I was more excited to see Nino. (Awww, gomen, Ryo-chan. But Nino IS my JE sanban (behind Tacchon and Yamapi) after all. :D) NINOOOOOO *flails* I have always been thinking of the exact same thing: Nino CAN act with just his eyes. And I always seem to forget that he's Nino when I watch his doramas. He plays each character so perfectly. <3 That's why he's my favorite JE actor. <3

Walang hanggan ako'y sa'yo~~~~
HAHAHAHA. Yeah, the dubbing was... okay. I just wish that they didn't cut so many scenes. And that they used Only Human as theme song instead. *sighs*
i like crispy ones with cheese dips ♥takeoutfries on May 27th, 2009 08:36 am (UTC)
LOL. I became teary-eyed din--but that was for the last part. When SPOILER!Nino was hesitantly pointing his gun at Kashiwabara.END SPOILER!

I feel the same way. My sister and I were discussing about how it'd turn out between the siblings and Shizuna once she finds out. Like who'd find it awkward and stuff. And we found ourselves wishing that nothing would change. XDD I just don't really like stories like that.D:

Well I mean, I didn't watch it because I was Ryo!biased, rofl. I'd only do that for Massu, lol. I watched it because I wanted to see how he'd act in it. And because we were already tired seeing him in his "kakkoi" roles--for a change, I guess. So yeah, seeing him in a sort of dorky and *ahem*stupid*ahem* character made us wonder if he was even acting at all. The scenes, especially for the earlier episodes, had a lot of RL feel, so. XD

NINO IS JUST AWESOME. There were times when I'd feel pity then suddenly have it into fear--just because of Nino's eyes. Totally scary. D:

Yeah. I already cried just because of the scenes, and when they'd play Only Human, my tears would fall even harder. I wish GMA didn't have to change it. Then add to that cutting the ending credits. That was a nice touch, seeing the real Aya. ):
Mina: [tacchon] Umi.minacchi on June 4th, 2009 01:35 am (UTC)
Yeah, that part too. *_* May isa pang magandang part e. Nakakaiyak 'yung scene na nagsu-switch 'yung actors between adult and child, tapos ine-enact nung mga adult actors 'yung scene nung bata pa sila. 'Yung gusto ni Ryo na dalhin 'yung laruan nya pero 'di pwede, tapos ipinagpipilitan parin niya. XD Basta, hirap i-explain. :D

Dorky!Ryo is so fun to watch. :D And yeah, minsan nakakaumay na si Kakkoi!Ryo. Scary!Ryo in Last Friends was, well, scary. XD It's hard to guess which is closer to RL Ryo. XD Pero I agree--dun sa earlier episodes (like the "She's selling condoms!" part), he seemed more natural. :D

EXACTLYYY *_* Especially when he acted as an autistic person in Marathon and as someone who has cerebral palsy in Door to Door, grabe. You'd forget that he's a JE idol. :D

Argh, hindi na ako nakakapanood ng Ichi Rittoru sa GMA. Nakakatulugan ko e. XD So hindi ko pa alam kung maiiyak ako. Pero factor talaga 'yung Only Human e. XD
