Sex Pistols

Couldn't fall asleep yesterday (did fall unconscious at 3 in morning only to wake up 3 hours later at 6AM), so instead of counting sheep (or studying) I re-read Sex Pistols (chapter 1 -18). I am forever glad that the arc wrapped up where it did or there would have been much screaming. I admit the first time I read Sex Pistols it was between much beer, some form of angst and assignments so I was not as appreciative as I should have been. However, now I am all starry eyed over the series! OMFG! It is soooooooooooooooo GOOD!

spoilers, blah, and cut for those of my f-list who does not have a thing for mpreg *koffs* )

My feelings for Sex Pistols can be equalled to the love I feel toward mugs of black coffee and fatty food.

Epiphany; penises & mpreg

Epiphany:

I think females with penises in hentai are probably the equivalent of mpreg in fics & yaoi crack.

Database & New Year Resolution

Ok, I suck, I had to give up on the database idea for my yaoi-manga; too much work involved in getting the concept down for the actual DB. So, instead, I now have a 6-column & 212-row of data in an excel spread sheet. All my BL manga are alphabetised by mangaka name (I'm notoriously bad with mangaka names,) what they have written, what the manga is about, is the series complete, and what series I want more of (utilising colour coding.) The whole thing took over 15 hours. Fifteen hours. The price one pays to have everything organised and perfect. There should be a sense of accomplishment except all I am feeling at the moment is the need for shinier yaoi. Need more.

Anyways, moving on, every year I make a huge list of things that I will do for the new year, this year I'm going to be less specific and more generous to myself. This is is done in the hope that I will actually achieve them by the end of 2006.

1. Be happy
2. Try and see friends more often
3. Be productive
4. Drink less alcohol
5. Lose weight
6. Be content in what I do

Happy belated New Year. To be fair, I'll probably make a bigger deal of it when the Chinese New Year rolls around.

BL/shoujo recs

  • Dec. 31st, 2005 at 12:11 AM
naanima: (woah)
I have been reading way too much BL manga lately, I am extremely happy about this. So, I thought I might as well do a short rec-list.

Masara Minase. I'd read anything this woman write, the fact that she and I seem to share similar kinks and a love of certain clich├ęd romance conventions make my little fangirl heart glad. She can pull my heart strings like very few mangaka can despite the fact that she's using the same old yaoi-plots; misunderstandings, substitutions, etc., but she does with such skill. In addition, her art work is really gorgeous; her uses of clean defined lines make me die of happiness.

Sumemo Yumeka's works more often than not hit a chord with me leaving me with a feeling of nostalgia at the best, wanting to weep at the worst. Chou ni naru Hi left me somewhere in between, which doesn't help, because not knowing whether I want to sigh for the days past or weep for the days that will come really doesn't better my current mood. All I can say is that, as usual, her art work is beautiful, her themes of growing, continuing on despite the odds, and finding each other in a vast world make me want to set up an altar for her, and maybe offer her my first born much love and money if she'd only give a clear, happy ending to her characters. But then I realise one of the reasons I find her works so beautiful, so poetic, is the lack of a clear ending to her stories. Her way of story telling is extremely subtle.

Suzuki Tanaka's works can be funny & light hearted; Menkui being the obvious title that pop into the mind, or they can be the sort that sucker-punch you so damn hard that you won't be able to breathe properly for a very long time; Memai being a prime example.

Yoshinaga Fumi blind-sided me. I honestly did not expect to like her works; her art style is not my thing, and her characters are not what I call endearing, at first. Having your main character shouting out that he hate homosexuals on the first few pages of the manga is not what I call normal. So, see my surprise when I couldn't STOP reading Antique Bakery at FIVE A.M. in the morning. There's just something about the way she depicts these characters (and in my saner moments I can admit they are indeed very screwed up characters); the owner of the bakery, who truth be told, is a jerk, the homosexual chef who has relationship issues, and the ex-punk who's now in training to be a chef. It is just brilliant the way that she depicts these individuals, flesh out their characters, and related everything back to a central plot (or what passes for plot), and by volume 2, chapter 10, the newest revelation has left me going; WTFH?! OMFGBBQ! WHAT?! Uh hum, so yes, READ!

Only the Japanese can somehow manage to equate sex with a man being better than the warmth of a teddy-bear or the warmth of a mother.

I ♥ Nanao Bohra.

Attention to [livejournal.com profile] anarch_kitty and [livejournal.com profile] perseid, remember how awhile ago we were despairing at the lack of organisation when it comes to our collection of yaoi manga? Well, fear no more, I have organised the Yaoi folder by Author. There are altogether seventy-one folders (no, you really don't want to know how long it took me, and no I did not do all of it in the past few days) including one miscellaneous folder (containing 6 items), where I can't find the mangaka's name anywhere. So, when you guys do finally manage to get your hands on my Super!Organised files; please help by placing the 'Miscellaneous' items in the right folders (if you recognise them). I'm pretty sure there are mistakes so, um, check and correct. In addition, add MORE files to the folders because I'm MISSING chapters! You know how I lack downloading power *pouts*

Now I go and study for today's exam; wish me luck.

thought 1: orgasms in yaoi/hentai

  • May. 12th, 2005 at 10:30 AM

RL blah )

Fandom-ish thought of the week: I have always found it interesting that during an orgasm, depicted in yaoi/hentai manga/anime, the uke/or whomever screams 'I'm coming' in English, and 'I'm going' in Chinese (literal translation, and I assume it is the same in Japanese. Do inform me if I'm wrong). It is always the smallest things that fascinate me.

Naked Truth 5... OMFG! WTF!? FeiLong, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!

Naked Truth; sex, guns and kidnappings?! )

On second thought the whole thing makes perfect sense. Go FeiLong! Achieve your threesome revenge.

[livejournal.com profile] amei, d00d, you rock. Much love, beer and tissues.

I'm so behind on all my shounen reading (GB is different, one day I might even attempt to explain it but today is not that day). I have come to the realisation, actually I have realised this awhile back but never actually verbalised. Anyways, the realisation: I'm following Naruto not because it is a kick arse story or because I have an urge to see what happens next or even to see how the characters turns out. I'm reading Naruto for the sole purpose of keeping up with good Naruto fanfiction. This says quite a bit about both the series and about myself, neither of which I feel comfortable in thinking to deeply on. (This is to say, I'm a fanfiction whore, and it is sort of sad that K-sensei have this awesome cast of characters and a semi interesting plot, and the only reason I'm following the series is because of fanfiction. No chemistry or at least not enough to keep me interested. In hindsight, the only time Naruto made me really interested was when Orochmaru first appeared, during the fight between Neji and Hinata, and the conclusion of Naruto chasing Sasuke.)

G-Defend is ghei, ghei, ghei, ghei, GHEI!

[livejournal.com profile] perseid, the series is such brainless fluff, not terribly funny, not terribly heart wrenching (just addictive.) Shame on you. (I need more. More I tell you.)

Need to re-read the rest of Get Backers, the Card arc is still the most amusing. Ban in a CLAMP get up (all flowing robes and bizarre hats) and doing the kissing is an experience worth re-visisting.

Something I forgot to mention. [livejournal.com profile] nekomancy, you probably would like to know that I sat through ALL 26 episodes of AishiteruZe Baby in a day. It was an experience that should not be repeated. Like all shoujo it is damn addictive, and the dodgy aspects of the series disappeared after the first few episodes (thank the gods). I found myself liking every character though I admit the younger brother is just PERFECT! 'I am the Prince of Darkness' indeed.

On the gaming front: Kingdom Hearts is cool. I continue to kick arse. Either this game is easier than I thought or it is somehow clicking with me on every level possible.
naanima: (inexp)
Leather and YuGiOh is bad. Will stop thinking about the two in the same sentence.

Will stop.

Honest.

But Seto is so hot in the manga, and not half bad in the anime. He's also ruthless, and so efficient.

Yami -in- leather in BOTH the manga and anime. Enough said.

Bakura is hot. Evil, scheming bastard that he is.

Malik is an utter nutcase. Cute but fecking scary. We have gone beyond the slightly mad, we have reached the great territory of the completely 'lick your blood' insane.

The fact that they are all so -very- dominant make me -very- happy.

But of course there's a problem. They are -really- young. Mind you, so were the cast for Digimon 1&2, and well, love Ken and Yamato, Taichi is the best and Daisuke is the cutest *huggles*. And let's not forget the Kaiser. Yes, let's not forget the little megalomaniac and his whip.

I really should stop. But wahhhhh, I like YuGiOh yaoi, however, for some reason I feel bad about liking YuGiOh yaoi, when I'm perfectly fine with Digimon yaoi... and also Naruto yaoi.

*sigh* Well, it wasn't like I didn't know I was a dirty, dirty old woman (relative to the boys of course).

Now, I need to email my IS homework to my tutor.
naanima: (love)
So yeah, I RABU Haru wo Daite Ita (I have been following it off and on for about 2 years now). And before you jump the gun, it isn't just for the hot gay sex, not that Youka Nitta can't draw Hot Gay Porn, because she can (and does). She really can.

However, considering that the five volumes I read today was in Chinese, and we ALL know that Chinese publication of manga with sex in it gets CENSORED! Hate censorship, they are evil, evil, evil. I didn't get to see any HGP (only kissing, but hot kissing). But that's alright, the story carried me through.

Don't anyone dare snicker. I'll have you know I LOVE the plot to Haru wo Daite Ita. I do, I do, I do. It's so simple but Nitta-sensei pull it off so well. I mean come one, anyone who can write a story about two AV actors falling in love, AND make it work should be admired and worshipped. But I love it to bits.

The interaction between the characters make me very happy, and Iwaki's family's reaction to his uh, career and love life is painful. But oh, I LOVE!

On a less biased note I can see why people might be slightly confused on why I LOVE the series. When you come down to it, the basic themes of the story is the same as every other yaoi/shoune-ai manga, but for various reasons this series click with me. I suspect it has to do with;

1. Nitta's art style. I like her more angular (realistic) character designs, and I love the clean lines (oh, the lines) she use for everything else, and the detail she can do for her buildings... *drool*.

2. Her love of twisting just enough of the yaoi conventions to make me interested. Disregard for certain *coughage/height/positioncough* rules make me happy.

3. The way her characters actually Develop.

4. The fact that the ANGST never become overwhelming and most of the time is dealt with in the issue (or in the next two issues) rather than dragging through 20+ volumes.

5. Despite the fact that it's about two AV actors falling in love, I find it more believable than a lots of the other yaoi out these. Not that it's absolute realism, I mean this is a YAOI manga we are talking about here.

6. And the HGP that she practically manages to draw into every issue. The fact that she can still advance the story, and develop all the characters make me -very- impressed.

And I'm sure there are other reasons as to why I rabu the series, but I can't think of anything at the moment, and I'm starving. Need food.

beating a dead horse and so forth

Okay, I admit it, I can't stand most of the standard pairings in YnM. Immediate turn off when I see the lable Tsu/His, Mu/Tsu, or Mu/His attached to anything. They bore me. Also, I can't posssibly be the only one who think Tsuzuki is UKE to Hisoka as SEME, can I?

I hate to say this, but Tsuzuki is just not seme material. The only plausible reason for this seem to be b'cos of the height rule, which, well, for lack of a better word, suck. Aren't people sick of them yet?

There should be more well-written Oriya and Muraki fics dammit. They're infinitely more interesting. Or if you want your crack pairings, have a Tatsumi and Muraki fic.

And yes, I'm not a big fan of YnM (can't stand it most of the time) but it's pretty, and I never said I wasn't superficial. Beside, a few of the characters are quite interesting (no, not Tsuzuki, can't stand Tsuzuki).

When I'm not sitting in front of my computer I have many interesting and intelligent things to say. When I am sitting in front of the said computer my mind is blank and I lose all motivation to write anything remotely interesting.

Hmm, well, I think I'll be making a design called 'PORN STAR' Have yet to decide if it'll be a wallpaper or reduntant web design, will decide later. Blame [livejournal.com profile] nekomancy for the idea, it's her fault. The constant bombardment of Zetsuai porn, well, semi-explicit images inspired me.
