Dear NOGIBINGO, why are you so damn awesome?!

Seriously, I want to know! They have only had just over 50 episodes so far and yet it feels like they have had more segments than AKBINGO has had in its 350+ episode run! Just this week they introduced a whole new segment! Meanwhile in AKBINGO, they are doing the fashion segment for like, the nth time now! What are they, some kind of advertising company? I miss the actual fashion show that began it all – you know the Coplay one that was, now that I think about it, hosted by Ijiri! Ah the irony!

Meanwhile NOGIBINGO knows what the fans want and they are still delivering in aces even as the segments are new and no longer copies of the old AKBINGO ones. That was like so season one, they are on the 5th now and things are getting better still. I mean come on, a segment where the girls get to act out their mousou lives as Oneesama with the members of their choice as their Imouto?! What is more awesome than that? Seriously, it almost even beats Danso for me because if you think about it, even though under the Danso they are still girls, the concept is that they are guys during those Danso segments so it is actually not yuri. Meanwhile here we get to not only have actual girl and girl, but this is essentially wincest!

Very interesting that they chose this segment now especially when you think that on 4chan people call each other Oneesama instead of Anon. I wonder if someone in AKBINGO production is a member of /u/. I can’t think it a coincidence that they chose the Oneesama segment for this season.

The couples this first time ever were kind of a mixed bag for me at first but that was only because I was expecting different couples. But then I thought that the couples I was thinking about wouldn’t work as sisters and more as lovers so I watched the episode again and enjoyed it immensely for what it was. I actually came away with a ship or two as well.

Thank you NOGIBINGO!

Taifu Club 台風クラブ

So, remember when I said I would be talking about a few gems from old Japanese cinema? Well, yesterday, being a Sunday (a day that makes you want to re-watch everything!) one of the few videos I managed to watch was a movie that released all the way back in 1985 and directed by Soumai Shinji – Taifu Club (Typhoon Club)! I think it won like seven awards so it has to be good, right? Well, the fact that I was watching it for the fourth time yesterday proves that it is indeed good!

Now, I am sure that most will find this boring. It is one of those movies that don’t have BGM, that seemingly spend time on scenes that most movies would do without – scenes that go on way longer than necessary. But I totally love these kinds of movies! Most movies in my Japanese collection have this vibe about them (Strawberry Shortcake, Blue, End of Puberty, etc.). It is such in fact that I can’t explain the story because despite having subs and having watched it four times by now I’m still lost at the plot of this movie!

It is titled Typhoon Club but that title like 10% relevant because said typhoon happens at the end of the movie and there is nothing like a club in school that deals in typhoons or anything like that. It just so happened that classmates got trapped in school when the typhoon hit and spent the night there. This was during the last 30 or less minutes of a 2hr movie. The rest of the movie was just following a bunch of high school students in their daily lives.

[Houkago Lost] Little Trip BTS


EDIT: Apologies, couldn’t get webms to work on this blog. damn! But you can get them by clicking on the links under the jifs.

Was going through some of my favs because it is Sunday and I always have that craving to prepare for the week to come and I remember that I didn’t watch the Behind the Scenes for Houkago Lost. I was very sceptical, what it being only 20mins long but they did actually include the kiss between Honoka and Kaho! Better yet it was from a different angle and a close up so there was no maybes about it at all! You got to enjoy it in all its multiple awesome glory!

And so i figured I might as well make some webms of those awesome kisses and that grope scene for you lovely Readers to enjoy! I can’t believe they kissed that many times in such a short period of time! And the way the director used Kaho’s other talents in the movie by incorporating that rooftop scene was just…Seriously, if it weren’t for that ending, this movie would so be in my Top 5! Even that Sumire middle ground of nope wouldn’t have mattered one bit. Sadly that ending happened and to both of the yuri stories so, um, yeah…

Also in case anyone wants to know what the two thought of the kiss, we heard their thoughts. Miki was like – who wouldn’t want to kiss a cute girl like her (Kaho) she even went on to say that she made great memories for the year but since she filmed Shishunki Gokko last year as well, well, it might be general but she said it during this movie’s interview so I guess she will never forget that kiss!

Meanwhile Kaho said that it was way easier and better than she had imagine. That surprised her and since Honoka was in listening distance, she asked her if she had thought so too. Miki of course agreed that she too was surprised. So does this mean that Kaho was Miki’s first kiss with a girl too? I know it was for Kaho because she said it herself that this was the first time she was involved in a yuri project. I guess Miki hadn’t kissed Misato yet in Shishunki Gokko).

Anyway that third time of their kiss was just so good I just had to jif it…



More on The Silenced

The Silenced 경성학교: 사라진 소녀들

I just watched ‘The Silenced’ again because a good pal kidafohs was so kind as to share subtitles with me so thinking of my post, I figured a quick correction might be in order. Like I said before I know enough words in Korean to be counted on one hand so that post was all from what I saw but not what heard and understood. Now I have to warn you, those subs were horrendous! So much so that even without understanding Korean I knew when the translations were wrong. But sometimes these subs are the best when they say something you wish they would say even if they might be wrong.

Still, one has got to be very grateful because even if they not perfect, I still understood what was going on about 60% more than I did without them. Believe it or not the subtitles cranked up the yuri to the point that I was surprised at the gayness! Without subs unless one dealt in goggles they wouldn’t think this movie a legit yuri movie but that changes completely with the subs. You won’t need goggles with subtitles. This of course means that I have to get this when it comes out on DVD (One can’t tell about Blu-rays when it comes to Korea). I will probably look for the Taiwanese Version. They have the best subtitles.

Isn’t it a nice time we live in where you can buy a Korean movie from either Japan or Taiwan or Murica?

When I was watching the movie with subs, I found that I may have made mistakes that need to be straightened out. The first being that I mentioned that the movie took place in Japan. I was wrong for it did not take place in Japan. Though I am not 100% sure on this one, the movie takes place in Korea but in a time when Japan was in power. One thing I got right was that the school was a huge laboratory experiment for the Japanese Army. The girls were mentioning Tokyo a lot because there was a competition to take the two best girls to go and live in Tokyo and Yuka and Yeon-deok were the believed to be the two to be chosen.

Speaking of this, the talk that Joo-ran and Yeon-deok had on the grounds right before Joo-ran did that crazy jump to show off the strange way her body was changing, was about this. Joo-ran wanted to know why Yeon-deok was working so hard to go to Tokyo especially since Yeon-deok never talked about it as much as the other girls. Yeon-deok tells her why and Joo-ran mentions how everyone is expecting it to be her and Yuka that are chosen. Joo-ran says that she wants to be the one to go with Yeon-deok. Doesn’t Yeon-deok want her too? I don’t know if that last one was a mistake or not but I took it as it was. If there was a confession in this movie this was it. But it was a bad time, especially with Yeon-deok as everything about Joo-ran was reminding her of her dead Lover (not really but oh well).

That is another thing I missed without subs. The girls have two names, they have the Japanese names and the Korean names. Joo-ran’s Japanese name was ‘Shizuko’ which as a twist of fate was also the same name of Yeon-deok’s dead friend (that she was originally thinking of going with to Tokyo). This name similarity I guess was what started the crazy of Yeon-deok being reminded of the dead Shizuko as Joo-ran turned weirder. That confession came at this time when Yeon-deok was a bit lost as she was reminded of the past and Joo-ran was turning into something more than human.

With the subs I also understood some other things that didn’t even require words like how Yeon-deok was basically the Joo-ran in her relationship with Shizuko. She was the one acting weird (read making the moves on Shizuko). Speaking of acting weird, that scene under the covers when Joo-ran snuck into Yeon-deok’s bed totally went over my head the first time, what with Joo-ran exhaling into Yeon-deok’s face who had this dead-pan look on her face. It made no sense to me. But then with subs everything made sense. Joo-ran was showing off her improvements in her health by showing Yeon-deok how clean her breath was (by breathing in her face) and saying that it was thanks to Yeon-deok. She had no idea why but she knew it was because of her. Yeon-deok was only surprised by how bold (strange) Joo-ran was acting. Did you catch that smile she flashed as Joo-ran left her bed (why did you leave)? I think that was the best smile Yeon-deok gave the whole movie.

There are other great moments of truth when you watch with the subs but I will leave those to your to find yourselves as you watch. The subs just make everything better, especially the yuri! Hell, it even confirmed my preferred interpretation of the ending! Joo-ran and Yeon-deok both did not have a home to return to. It was why Yeon-deok was working so hard to be the one to go to Tokyo so she could finally have a better life. Meanwhile Joo-ran was sent to the school by her Step-Mother, her real mother having died from the same sickness she had so they were afraid it was infectious and thus they sent her away.

So knowing this and then hearing that line Joo-ran says at the end before she dies – ‘We can finally go home Yeon-deok’ and then showing us the two in that secret room where they listen to music together and look so happy, well, how can I call this a BAD END? Sure they died but they died together! And with both having had each other in their thoughts as they did, they are so going to end up together in the afterlife! Before Yeon-deok died, she was thanking Joo-ran for everything and was literally looking at her as she lay there on the surgical bed. I am pretty sure the after-image (frozen reflection in a dead person’s eye) is of Joo-ran. Joo-ran was holding Yeon-deok and speaking to her as she died too so both of them were thinking of each other. So I think of this as not a BAD END but actually a BEST END. They are basically together forever now and that can’t be beat with the movie ending with two girls confessing and kissing and living! You aren’t sure of their future, something might happen the next day, people change, especially their emotions so seeing those emotions frozen forever I consider ‘The Silenced’ ending BEST END.

I know I am crazy!

And so that’s that, just a quick update on the movie after I saw it with subs. I will of course watch it again with better subs when they are available, hopefully with the DVDs. Taiwan never lets down in that department when they do release and really, I am not worried about this one. It is kind of like the Whispering Corridors or Death Bell series and people love those. Actually I have high expectations of a Bu-ray of this too. Murica is sure to be over this too so 100% subs incoming.


[I cant believe it aint yuri] Barely Lethal

bl-23 bl-27

Did I mention this movie somewhere here? I am pretty sure I mention it before. Anyway this is a movie about a girl trained to be an Assassin since she was a baby by the one and only Samuel L Jackson and has a Senpai as cool as Jessica Alba Parker! When the girl (Megan) is sent on a mission to bring in the rogue Senpai No.1 (Jessica AKA Victoria) she is lost in action to save herself from being killed by No.1. Having had a dream of living a normal life, she uses the opportunity to disappear so she can live her dream.

From the trailer I had great expectations for this movie! First of all it had vibes of those teen movies like Bring It On (Which was referenced in the movie as Megan did research on what college girls do) so I wished for some great chemistry between Megan and someone else! I did get my wish.

And that is the problem
