Listening to their songs is sweet bliss. Their voices are enough to make my day.
Poor, achy-breaky heart screams Yuya Tegoshi. Even the brain cells do. Who wouldn't, with his voice akin to a gift from heaven...and a cheeky, sadist, spoiled-brat personality for that matter. Dreaming of having a duet with him at a karaoke bar someday.
Kazunari Ninomiya saved me from being Jun-baited. Him being adorkable is enough. | A serenading voice and heartbreaking acting coming from Kazuya Kamenashi made me dig more into his group.

*shakes off dust*
*waves hand awkwardly* Hi~

Long time no post, eh?
Sadly, non-HSJ nor JE-related post again this time.

So just a quick post since I still have stuff to work on after this... XD
Anyway, after falling in too deep with the Kalafina fandom, I finally decided to buy one of their merchandise from my own money (because my friends' THE BEST albums' gifts don't count :P)

You know, I'm not really sure if it shows, but I'm not really active in the Johnny's fandom anymore. I doubt I could come back as soon as I would like to, but then, maybe all good things just do come to an end. I would never stop adoring those boys, though, but then, my fond feelings have found different places to dwell on.

But what exactly are these, and why haven't I shared them up until now? Well, okay, here they are. Bring it on! Sorry for the lateness though, (insert excuses here).

Fandom update OHYEAH~!Collapse )

So that's it for now, I guess. Whew, so much variety, don't you think? Maybe that means I'm opening up to things a little bit more! :D

Do you know these fandoms I've just rambled about? How do you feel about them? Comment below, let me know! *slammed by Jeremy Jahns*

...A.k.a. the flailing post.

I started being a fan of the Fate franchise through the prequel anime series, Fate/Zero. But having been able to play the visual novel (albeit using the in-game flowchart *CHEATAH! OTL*), I totally fell for the thing that started it all.

Having watched the Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works anime movie adaptation by Studio DEEN and being quite disappointed with it, I thought I'd wait for the ufotable adaptation instead, because we all know that they did Zero in the most epic way possible. Don't believe me? See all the reviews out there and point out even just one negative comment about it. I bet you'd get none.

 Now that ufotable has made the official website for their Fate/Stay Night adaptation live... It's spazzing time!!! <3

First up, the banner links that we see the moment we land on the website:

fsnbanner
...they HEARD the fans' cry! ♥♥♥

ufotable will be providing us three - yeap, you read that right - content for these wonderful routes come Autumn of 2014. Personally, I loved Heaven's Feel, but I like all the routes, with UBW being the shortest. Interesting, though, that they decided to make the animation for UBW, but I really, really hope that the Heaven's Feel route would be made as a movie series like Kara no Kyoukai (although I haven't seen that one yet, I've heard it's a good one :D).

And the PVs! OMG FANGASM ♥♥♥







NOW LET'S ALL JUMP ON THE HYPE BANDWAGON, GUYS AND GALS <3

But, before I mislead you, I'm not going to talk about the Chinese New Year in this entry. :P
Instead, I'll be talking about two Chinese-related, er, "films"? Well, the quote is on since the other one isn't exactly a film, but a drama SP, rather.

So, first one is Case Files of Young Kindaichi: Hong Kong Kowloon Treasure Murder Case. I just finished watching it last week. Late, I know, but better than never, as the adage goes. So... It feels strange since it's been almost a year since I last saw Yamada act, and although he did great in most of his parts, some of his co-actors just... didn't. Not to mention I was totally disappointed with how the plot went. I thought it were to be something bigger than I was expecting, but it went the other way around. Sigh.

I don't really mind if they would want to redeem themselves with a drama series though, as long as the mystery plot is sufficiently sane.

Then, just today, we went to the theater to watch Chinese Zodiac. Er, yep, that's the one dubbed as Jackie Chan's last action movie. Hmm... I'm still hoping he changes his mind though, as with even only the first few minutes rolling, the film already sent my jaw dropping. As expected from the comedy-stunts-action king (lol I made that up in case you didn't notice), the movie surely sent us laughing and holding our breath (well, we even held our bladder just to be able to see every second of the film!).

I don't know if it's just me, but the Chinese accent on most of the characters confused me a lot really. Even for Jackie Chan's case, that was totally true, even though as a fan I've seen his previous works, and have heard better English from him than what was in this movie. Well, I guess I can always look forward to the English subs that people will do once the DVD rips are around. HEHE.

And, to all our pleasant surprise, we had a bonus character on screen: Kwon Sang Woo!!! (a number of girls squealed on their seats upon seeing him LOOOOOOL). It was really such a shock to see him acting on an action drama, alongside Jackie chan, on a Hollywood movie. Just. WOW. As for his acting, he can already be considered one of the Korean veterans, and it was also nice to hear him speak in Chinese, though I totally doubt if that was him speaking in English or if it was just dubbed. :P If someone can take a stand and clarify this for me, I'd sure be interested to hear your side. Anyway, overall his appearance was such an eyecandy, and added to the already-entertaining atmosphere the movie had.

Speaking of atmosphere, the one in this movie, albeit entertaining as I said, was also marked with finality and seriousness I've never felt in JC's previous films. Quite sad to realize, really, as I've always enjoyed the light-mood-filled yet action-packed movies Jackie always brings to the audience.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to his romance-comedy stuff, if there will be. And if it were to be local, I'd go watch it even more!
(just worrying about how the quality will go but, oh well)

夢の中の笑顔 忘れられない涙
満ちて行く君を抱きしめたくて

Yume no naka no egao Wasurerarenai namida
Michite yuku kimi wo dakishimetakute

The smiling face in my dreams, the unforgettable tears
I want to embrace the waxing you

You are moonlight
Don't leave me alone

You are moonlight
Don't leave me alone

You are moonlight
Don't leave me alone

眠りの暗闇ひとり 目指して行く光
微笑んだ君が 見つめて呼んでる

Nemuri no kurayami hitori Mezashite yuku hikari
Hohoenda kimi ga Mitsumete yonderu

Alone in the darkness of sleep, I go aiming for the light
The smiling you is gazing at and calling out to me

カーテンの隙間から 月が消えたなら
ベッドの上にひとつ 孤独な心が凍えてた

Kaaten no sukima kara Tsuki ga kieta nara
Beedo no ue ni hitotsu Kodoku na kokoro ga kogoeteta

But when the moon had vanished from the gaps of the curtains
Lying alone on the bed, my lonely heart started to freeze

想いだけを焦がしてる

Omoi dake wo kogashiteru

Only my feelings keep burning on

君に触れたいまま 何も出来ないまま
今夜もひとりで夢に堕ちる

Kimi ni furetai mama Nani mo dekinai mama
Konya mo hitori de yume ni ochiru

I want to touch you, yet I cannot do anything
Tonight I fall into my dreams alone again

微笑んでこないで 胸の中に来ないで
解ってても 苦しくても
この腕を伸ばしてしまう

Hohoende konaide Mune no naka ni konaide
Wakattetemo Kurushikutemo
Kono ude wo nobashite shimau

You won't come smiling, you won't keep me in your heart
Even though I understand, even though it hurts
I still end up reaching out my arm to you

消えないで...

Kienaide...

Don't disappear...

霧深い夜にふたり 交わしてる温もり
朝陽が訪れ 君は消えていた

Kiri fukai yoru ni futari Kawashiteru nukumori
Asahi ga otozure Kimi wa kiete ita

The two of us exchange the warmth in the deep misty night
Then the morning light came, and you suddenly disappeared

部屋中を探したって 思い出さえ無くて
渇いてく日々さえも 君に捧げた未来だと

Heya chuu wo sagashitatte Omoide sae nakute
Kawaiteku hibi sae mo Kimi ni sasageta mirai da to

I looked for you in the room, but nowhere even are our memories
As well as the future I gave to you, and even the days that had dried up

今も胸を焦がしてる

Ima mo mune wo kogashiteru

Even so, until now, my chest keeps on burning

夢かもしれないまま 痛みは消えないまま
愛しさだけが疼いている

Yume kamo shirenai mama Itami wa kienai mama
Itoshisa dake ga uzuiteiru

It might have just been only a dream, but the pain just won't disappear
I only keep on aching for your love

その手を振らないで 悲しみを見せないで
どこへ行けば 何をすれば
安らぎが包んでくれる

Sono te wo furanaide Kanashimi wo misenaide
Doko he yukeba Nani wo sureba
Yasuragi ga tsutsunde kureru

Your hand won't shake, you won't show your sorrow
But if you go somewhere, if you do something
You will be engulfed in tranquility

行かないで...

Ikanaide...

Don't go...

夢の中の光 忘れていた悲しみ
街で見かけても見つめ合えずに

Yume no naka no hikari Wasurete ita kanashimi
Machi de mikaketemo mitsume aezuni

The light in my dreams, the sorrow I had forgotten
Though you catch sight of me on the street, you won't meet my gaze

もし二度と笑顔を 見れないというのなら
明日さえも 来なくていい
夢の中でも抱いていたい

Moshi nido to egao wo Mirenai to iu no nara
Ashita sae mo Konakute ii
Yume no naka demo daite itai

If I would not be able to see your smiling face ever again
It would be better if tomorrow never came
I want to hug you even if it's just in my dreams

いつまでも

Itsumademo

Forevermore

You are moonlight
Don't leave me alone tonight...

You are moonlight

T/N: This translation may not be in any way perfect (especially for some lines, that if translated literally, sound reaaaaaally awkward). Mostly this is just a literal translation orz. Feel free to correct!

And oh, I added some words not really included in the original lyrics (such as conjunctions) to make the translation much more singable and for it to make some... sense :P

So Yamada's released his Mystery Virgin single today...
Kdot as always, especially with the carrier song itself. >:)

I.FUCKIN.CAN'T with the Moonlight PV though.

涼くん、殺す気か?!
/loses liters of blood

So I'll haul you down with me in my grave.
Let's enjoy being six feet under then.

(Well, I was hoping to give a sane, sensible comment on this but I.JUST.CAN'T.OMG. X_X)

Okay, time to calm down.

It was almost the thing I've imagined, save for the PV was actually darker than I first imagined it to be. But I liked how Ryosuke pwned the whole thing with his acting and seducing skills, and how curtains and the moonlight CGI were also employed in it.

I was really looking forward to the bed, but oh well.

What are your thoughts on this?

Piece portrays the tale of Suga Mizuho and Narumi Hikaru, two people who dated casually in the past and fell apart in the same fashion. They meet again after three long years, only to find the task of delving into classmate Origuchi Haruka's past and memories laying in front of them. Will this eventually lead them back together? That depends on what they find out.

x

A plain and reserved girl, the late Haruka had been the subject of bullying in her high school days. Nevertheless, her mother feels quite relieved to know that her daughter had a close friend whom she can talk her issues with. But that is not actually the case, as Mizuho had not interacted much with Haruka back then.
