So this new years weekend was an anime fest for me. After watching all of Marmalade Boy, I attached myself to Hana Yori Dango (Boys over Flowers)...first I watched all the available episodes, so there's some I missed. Well it's similar to the manga, but it doesn't go as long as the manga does, and the end of the anime is different than the manga, but just as good, so i can't complain. Then i watched the live action drama, well that was a first for me. i don't normally watch those, but after watching Hana Yori Dango I could become addicted. It was fabulous. Ok the guys clothing at the beginning was a bit weird, come on a silver jacket, very scary. And gotta say, the boys were awesome...I definitely got the same vide I got when I read the manga. You definitely think Rui is so nice and quite, but he still has this charm about him that's pretty cool. And right off I thought of Domyouji as a spoilt little brat who needed a good whipping. I totally enjoyed Tsubaki's (Domyouji's sister), entrance into the series. There were total difference between the manga and the live action drama. First off there's no Kuzuya, and then the girl Ayano who's suppose to be one guys fiancee is Domyouji's fiancee now. And there's a definite combination of scenes from the manga, it flows but it's the same content but mixed up.
Anyway, in the anime I find Tsukushi's parents rather annoying, not as annoying as the manga, but almost, I don't think they showed up in the anime enough to annoy me or maybe those were the episodes i missed. In the manga, they did the most ridiculous things that just made me want to slap them if I knew them. The worst of it was they totally ruined her prom dress that Domyouji bought her to wear to attend his prom with him, since he's a year older than her. Only to have her mother wear it, rip it, stitich it back then, she's got to help them move, get's stuck in mud, and I do believe rips her dress again when her father steps on it. I really got ticked at that point, since they were totally involved with her gettting married to Domyouji, there's other insane things they did, and that she was forced to do because of them that made me dislike them majorly.
The next thing I watched was Aishiteruze Baby.....one word to describe this series.... KAWAAAIIIII....*cute*...hehehe....Yuzuyu is so cute she's just downright scary at times, she's almost always crying in the beginning, and when she starts calling Kippei 'baka' = idiot in one episode it's absolutely hilarious, since she all but worships the ground he walks on. I really loved this, it was a great anime. Too bad I only read the first manga, oh well i'm not going to go back and read it...I'm lazy like that.
Anyway, that was my gush for anime....*thinks about doing a fanfic*....
well it'll have to wait until this weekend...*hmmmm*....*sigh*
