fishpatrol: (this is my "i heart you" face)
I had the Prince of Tennis yakiniku episode on my computer for a while and I finally watched it today while eating dinner. That was a rather bad idea since I almost choked on my food several times (and almost lost my appetite several other times XD;). Anything the manga does, the anime does better (e.g. the volleyball episode, the billiards episode, the chibi episodes... well, the American arc not so much, but I like to pretend that arc never existed anyway). This episode shows what PoT!crack is all about. You get to see things like Oishi going batshit insane and developing devil-horn!bangs, Fuji waxing poetic over spicy sauce, Inui trying to kiss Atobe (the reason? He wanted to collect "data". DATA MY ASS), and speaking of asses, you also get to see a clear shot of Inui's bare, shiny, behind due to Tezuka's grabbie hands (someone has been taking lessons from Kangin...!). Oh, PoT♥. Can't get better quality crack anywhere else. I watched the Chinese sub, but the first part of the English sub can be found here. It's worth a watch, even if you haven't been keeping up with the OVAs (like me X3;). CRACK IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE, OK. LIKE MUSIC. AND ART. :D...!

The previews made me feel a little nostalgic, even though I'd only skimmed the Nationals arc in the manga. The grand rescue of Ryoma via Atobe's helicopter (there was so an Atobe/Momo moment there; there was, there was!) was very LOL, but what was more LOL was Atobe's wig fluttering down from the helicopter. I'm curious about the scene with Ryoma in the rain and an anonymous Hyotei member! Was it Atobe who flicked Ryoma's cap? :O It looked like a flashback... Maybe I should watch the rest of the OVAs.

Other than this random episode of PoT and the recent subs of Junjou Romantica, I haven't been watching any anime at all (which contributes to my lack of excitement over the upcoming anime convention). :\ The Oofuri anime has long ended, but I've yet to finish watching. To be honest, I can't even remember which episode I left off on. D:

To switch to another topic completely... I've been listening to Cpop more frequently as of late. I've noticed that 90% of the Cpop songs (at least among the ~2GB of Cpop that I have) involve romantic love or something related. There seems to be a rather limited repertoire of song topics, which is a bit annoying (but only when I'm paying attention to the lyrics, which is actually quite rarely XD). The same could probably be said of Jpop and Kpop, but given that I can't understand Japanese or Korean (though I do notice all the "sarang"s, or however it's conjugated), I'm more willing to listen to these two genres. Isn't there anything else to sing about? :\ Or does the genre of pop necessarily mean "must include romantic-love content"?

Here's a song that falls under the Cpop category and does not involve the usual romantic-love drivel: S.H.E. (Ella) - Qiang Qiang. It made me cry, not the first time I heard it, but the first time I actually paid attention to the lyrics. Lyrics + translations can be found here.

eta: I did a teeny trim of the flist and I accidentally removed a good friend because I'm not wearing my glasses and everything's a blurry blur, but I immediately corrected my error, so all ought to be well.

I just spent the past half hour flailing a sponge-on-a-mop-handle thingie with one of my housemates. She came knocking on my door at a while ago, asking if I was afraid of bugs. I hate creepy crawly things that have more than four legs (crustaceans aside because I can eat those -- don't tell me about stir-fried cockroaches. I don't want to hear about it. >__o). But I followed her to the bathroom anyway, to see the big millipede. Akdlafsdljf. It was disgusting and I didn't want to go near it, even with the sponge-on-a-mop-handle. So we stood there, flailing at each other for ten minutes. None of the other two girls on our floor were home, but fortunately, the man who lives on the second floor came in with some friends and we implored him to help us.

After that problem was resolved, my housemate started pointing out all the spiders that apparently reside along our kitchen wall. She would hit one with the corner of the sponge-on-a-mop-handle and as soon as the spider started running, she would scream and toss me the sponge-on-a-mop-handle, and then I would smush it with the sponge-on-a-mop-handle. One of them was extremely difficult to get because it was cleverer than us and we screamed and flailed and slammed the sponge-on-a-mop-handle against the wall. I think we got it in the end. We're not sure though. :| So now I am completely paranoid and am compulsively looking up and checking out corners in fear of more spiders.

(Oh man, I even have a tag just for bug-related entries. *FAILS*)

In other news, I was watching 非常大明星 on Tudou.com today, but this scene was not shown. D: Maybe it'll be in next week's segment?

Yunho's Spokesman feat. Donghae is all kinds of ;dajfsdkl awesome. *___* Junsu should have more songs (Junsu's little dolphin scream at the end, lol♥!)featuring Eunhyuk's rapping. And I'll bet Changmin and Kyuhyun and also Jaejoong and Yesung would sound fantastic if they did ballad duets together (speaking of Jaejoong, he sounds amazing in Crying. I wish there were HQ MP3 versions of these solos. :x:x) But what I would really like to hear is Yoochun and Kibum rapping together in Engrish about bling-bling balls.

I can't wait to see Junjo Romantica anime subbed! I bought the fourth volume the other day, and ;akjfdsl, Misaki is such a cute spazz and Usami is oblivious as always and Hiroki is going to get an ulcer if he keeps getting so worked up. Personally, I like Misaki and Usami's storyline more than Hiroki and Nowaki's. Both Misaki and Usami are so damned clueless, and their relationship is so dysfunctional, but in an awesome way. <3<3
