I went to see 君の名は last night. It certainly runs the viewer through a full gamut of emotion! And wow, everyone who has seen it has done a great job of not giving away the plot, so I'm going to talk about it under a cut. 

THIS IS A SPOILER! SAVE YOURSELF! )

I also watched the second episode of 3人のパパ. It's not a must-watch for everyone, but I'm quite enjoying Horii Arata's acting. He always gives a lot of credit to Seto Koji, and I can see that in him. At the same time, he's developing his own style. Honestly, when Horii won the D☆DATE audition, I was pretty skeptical. He was gangly and so unpolished, very much the baseball playing high schooler. It was hard for me to see the performer in him. But he was so eager and endearing that you couldn't help but root for him as Seto kept rushing in to stop him from saying things he'd regret later. LOL. That was always hilarious, and endearing for both of them. The first inkling of Horii's acting potential was in D☆DATE's short film for JOKER. I hadn't expected much, but he turned in a believable performance. He continued to develop in subsequent roles in asadora, light drama and taiga. If I'm not mistaken, 3 Papas is his first lead role. 

And speaking of Seto, he's been pretty quiet lately. Of course, he also just came off a back-to-back shooting and performance schedule that stretched months. There were the dramas and plays one after the other, and the commercials, and shooting for 冬芽の人, and for the films ミックス and ナラタージュ, and the further cooking adventures of Hansel in NHK-BS グレーテルのかまど and DJing for D-radio. And now he's in the midst of producing his fan show, where he creates all the content and designs all the goods. And he's probably doing something else he isn't at liberty to divulge yet. So it's not like he's not super active. But... heh, I miss his promotional blogging, the way he can tie some mundane event of his day into the theme of whatever production he's flogging, or wax philosophical about the character he portrays. Ha ha, he's really quite a talented ad-man.

After watching the disappointing Into Darkness mishmash, my Star Trek love is rekindled thanks to these excellent fanmade episodes based on The Original Series.What is Star Trek? Fanvideos know, even if Abrams doesn't )

My daughter, despite all her nerdy and geeky credentials, has never had a fandom of her own. Sure, there were things she enjoyed, and she enjoys being around fans. But her very own fandom, where she could flail, spazz, geek and generally react to things way in excess of its true importance in the scheme of global affairs, in the company of other people also overreacting? Never had it. But she has lately become a Les Miz fangirl, and it's so cute! Her motivation level and socializing has jumped, and it's because being in a fandom means not just the thing or person you like, but the people who like it along with you. And that connection is precious!

And thinking about that, and the tempest in our tiny teacup we had yesterday, I just want to say that all of you in our little gaijin WE ikemen fandom are precious to me. Seto fans, D-BOYS fans, D2 fans, D☆DATE fans, Tomo family, Shirota fans, the 2 or 3 other Patch fans.... Well, I'd better not name each sub-fandom or this post will need an LJ cut! Anyways, no matter what our differences, let's always stay friends. 

I don't have a good jpg. for this post, so I'll just give you cookies instead.

Remember the 30 days of D-BOYS meme? Remember that I didn't finish it? Well, since I have threatened promised to keep posting drawings until Erin feels more confident of her own drawing, I decided I need a topic. Let's go back to Day 10.


Really bad art )

tilmon: (come here)
Consider this the first salvo in my war to get Wataru to answer questions again. Erin, it's just going to be one sad drawing after another until you feel comparatively confident again. Mwuhahahahahaha!

The donation campaign is going great, but there's still plenty of room for more participants! I'm making it even easier to join in because, now, not only is CD Japan having a fund raiser, so is HMV! In both cases, some stock they had last week may no longer be available because, you know, tsunami! but they are both great companies. And if you buy anything from them from during their fund raising drives, I will count that toward my goal.

12 fans! 38 to go....
