Status: Bumming Around
Music: Do I Make You Proud - Taylor Hicks
Anyway, since I have nothing interesting to share cos I've just been bumming around lately, I'd just tell you my current TV addiction. And it's God(?) Save Our King. I've always loved ANIMAX Channel because of Detective Conan and Fullmetal Alchemist but when God(?) Save Our King made its debut last week, I just can't get enough of animé.
Here's a short synopsis of my latest Japanese animation madness from animax-asia:
What irony! Yuri Shibuya is your typical baseball-loving high school student, who is trying to save a classmate from bullies, somehow finds himself flushed down the toilet. One way or another, the toilet bowl is a doorway to a medieval world, where humans and demons coexist on the brink of war. Thanks to his black eyes, black hair, and black school uniform, Yuri is mistaken for the demons' long-awaited 27th Demon King! Now, this mild-mannered, righteous schoolboy is expected to lead the demon kingdom in a war to crush the humans. Read the full article >>>
Here's a review from nowplayingmag.
Basta. If you guys have time, try to catch it on Tuesdays 7pm, right after Detective Conan.
The series works pretty well, with a fair amount of humor injected into it which will give viewers more than a few chuckles. For example, Yuri's visitation by a nearly nude woman in the bath forces him to flee in 'horror' as he is afraid to be seen in the buff. The show also deals a bit with homosexuality, as Yuri is occasionally seen as a sexual being from both the male and female perspectives (wait until you see the woman that hits on Yuri). Of course, when the son Wolfram is slapped by Yuri, Yuri is surprised to learn that slapping someone means that they are engaged. Neither character is happy about this situation, but it does lead to some amusing moments. Read the full article >>>
OK, enough of kiddie stuff. I should go back to work. And it's not work as in work. But I'm currently writing another novel. I just hope I finish writing it. I always start writing novels but always end up not having enough patience to finish it --- like what happened to April Fools and Human Hybrids.
