Frag-time フラグタイム

Frag-time is an upcoming animated movie based on a two-volume manga about a girl who can stop time for 3 minutes. Little does she know that there is another girl, one of her classmates, that is not affected by the abnormality.

I am so interested in this movie and its concept and I can’t wait for it to hit shelves. Sadly, that is a long wait away as it hasn’t even come out in cinemas yet! But what I am not going to do is read the manga before I watch the movie. I’ve learned my lesson quite a lot in that aspect. I have come to understand that it is better to get to adaptations first before going into the source material, unless of course there is no choice and you have already been acquainted with the source long before the adaptation.

The concept first of all, is intriguing in and of itself. A girl that stops time and there is another that is unaffected! Both having a crush on each other! Basically, they are spending those three minutes in a world of their own with no one else in it! And better yet, they are spending it wisely (read, looking under other girls’ skirts and all such), going on dates and basically doing whatever they would never do in front of other people!

I’m really intrigued!

And I haven’t read the manga like I said but this promises to be an actual to goodness pure yuri movie! I haven’t gotten that from Japan in a long while! Least of all one that might end on a happy note (if you have read the manga, don’t you dare!!)

Anyway, watch the trailer and more caps after the jump.

Legacies Spoilers – I’m not ready!

The Spoilers, the image selected, the wait time before the episode drops…

How to survive!?

Here I was crying in a corner because we Hizzie fam have seemingly been neglected but then out of nowhere, BAM!

I had my reservations for season 2, s2s always spoil the broth, usually by introducing different characters that screw up things and Legacies has already done that.

And yet…

Oh to hell with it, I don’t care what happens. I don’t care why a Hizzie episode is titled “Screw Endgame”, actually scratch that, why is it titled as such?! Are they telling us something!

Cosmic odds, I know but what are wishes and dreams for?!

Can’t wait for this episode! Get here already Nov 14th!

[SWAG] So, It’s been a while…

swag0

…Since I got some swag from Japan, huh!

Well, I thought it was about time and as you can see, there was quite some collection. Some in fact I have yet to buy (hey, Japan is expensive!) but that will come later! There is still Christmas to come and New Years…and I always treat myself!

Two of the books are manuals, so to speak, for manga artists which have poses of girls, of course in yuri situations, so you gotta believe me when I tell you they are fantabulous! You can see all these lovely scenes from a 360 degree angle! Seriously, only an Idol video can be better than this!

One of the books is pure yuri (middle top) and of course we have School Girl Complex Vol.5! There is nothing to be said about that series! I mean they made a movie about it for crying out loud!

Then there is that Seiyuu magazine! If you look closely on the left edge, you will know why I bought it! And if you know, you know I am a bit too late in getting it! Way too late in fact! I was planning on making a post about this later but…maybe I should wait some more!

The DVDs have no yuri (well, I don’t know yet, there will definitely be subtext) but I got it first and foremost for Asakawa Nana-chan! Besides, we shall see when I get to watching them anyway!

If you wanna have a sneak peek inside, jump over for more

Female Directors are feeding us good with these take me back to the old days of French cinema pieces! I tell you all, it is great to see that art is not dying, well, not in other countries, America though…

Any who, here be two trailers that caught my eye of upcoming French movies, well, one is already out and about on the interwebs (not officially though) so I will be covering that when I watch it. The other one, being the one that is most relevant (but of course, since when are things easy?) we will have to wait for until November and even then it will be only in cinemas. Oh well, I can wait for anything that’s relevant and Portrait of a Lady on Fire is 1000% relevant, well, from what I’ve seen so far.

Interestingly, both movies star the same main Actress (Noemie) and while Portrait of a Lady is looking to be super gay, Curiosa lives up to its name and this is just curiosity here but hey, this is French cine so of course I am going to watch it!

I am also not going to touch upon how these two movies remind me of Fingersmith because it seems every movie now reminds me of Maud and Sue’s story in some way. Eh, it can’t be helped, Fingersmith and The Handmaiden are the gold standards of Lesbian Stories.

As for the Portrait movie, another thing to note is the other co-star, Adele. You all with good memory might remember her from one old gem Water Lilies where she played girl in the closet Floriane. Yes, she is that girl. Oh how time goes by!

But enough bore, jump over for the trailers and some images…

Fragtime [Teaser]

Moritani Misuzu (short light hair) is, is a girl who can stop time but for three minutes. Murakami Haruka is Misuzu’s very popular classmate and the only one that is unaffected when Misuzu stops time.

Misuzu learns of Haruka’s special case when she tries to stop time while wearing Haruka’s skirt (I don’t know how), and she finds that she can’t. In the midst of being intrigued by this phenomena, Misuzu will find herself drawn to Haruka and eventually fall for her.

Meanwhile Haruka will use Misuzu’s ability to her advantage by making some weird requests of her ability to stop time. Some of which will hopefully include the trailer line of ‘Let me do whatever I want with you for three minutes’.

Sadly, we have to wait for a while for this movie as it doesn’t release in theatres until November and then add six months on that for the physical and yeah, almost a year before we get to enjoy this.

Oh well, at least it’s coming. I don’t remember the last time we had a yuri anime movie so this is great!

And since this is an adaptation, there is a manga that we can still enjoy. First time I’ve heard of it though so I might buy it just in case I can’t wait. I have learned my lesson to never read or watch the original before the adaptation if I can help it. I will try to wait after the movie to buy the manga, like I did for the movie TELL IT TO THE BEES.

Yukirin no Natsu ga Hajimaru [Stage]

yukirin stage

June 30th START

So, another Yukirin Stage is on the way to us and shockingly, sooner than expected. The new stage, titled Boku no Natsu ga Hajimaruyo, which roughly translates to My Summer has begun or as I prefer, My Summer is Here, will start this month.

That’s June 30th.

That’s in like a week! And it’s not like they have just been keeping it a secret or anything. No, they have only begun and in fact Yukirin says that they have only practiced just two songs. The stage starts in approximately 10 days and they have only begun?

So, even though we won’t know what songs the stage has, it is Yukirin, so I am ready for another hit. She not only has great taste, but she’s got experience as well, having produced the 9th KKS stage before, whose setlist was hit.

We also know what the concept and the why of the stage. The why is that all AKB48 members can participate and that means all five teams of the group. The members will basically rotate out all the time until every member has performed. This is not about replacing the member that is out sick or busy, no, this is about everyone having a piece of that pie.

Members that would otherwise never have met on stage other than group concerts will meet in this stage. Like, this is a one of a kind stage and what better person to come up with such a selfless idea!

Yes, Yukirin took this idea to management herself and being such an awesome idea, they had no choice but to give the stamp of approval. Useless hacks, can’t even come up with new interesting concepts to the point of the members going to them.

Seriously, it’s been so long since I was excited about anything from this group. It’s now a shadow of its former self and that’s just sad. Their reality shows are boring, there are scarcely any outside projects. Concerts are a rarity and don’t get me started on those single lineups!

Something new and different like this Boku no Natsu stage is what we have been missing and while there won’t be new songs to go with that, it still puts some excitement into us elite fans.

The line-up for this stage is like this:

· Kashiwagi Yuki

· Oguri Yui

· Mukaichi Mion

· Yokoyama Yui (Might not make it for the 1st performance)

· Iwatate Saho

· Okabe Rin

· Okada Nana

· Komiyama Haruka

· Murayama Yuiri

· Asai Nanami

· Kurano Narumi

· Omori Maho

· Taniguchi Megu

· Fukuoka Seina

· Nishikawa Rei

· Yasuda Kana

· Suzuki Kurumi (Replacement for Yuihan in case)

And there you have it – the first batters of this new and intriguing stage!

I of course am more looking forward to Yukirin mingling with all these other girls, especially with YuiYui and Asai Nanami. Heh, what can I say? She got to me When I saw her in that AKBINGO special where she went on a drive with Yukirin, YuiYui, Shiichan and that other new Fisher girl. Her height first of all! She is I think even taller than Yukirin and she has that likeable soft personality on her that I just… She does remind me of Yukirin of the old too.

YuiYui is a no brainer. She is currently my crack ship with Yukirin. My previous was Matsui Rena so you can imagine what a big deal this is to me. Too bad AKS can’t even think of making another unique drama where their new Face is playing off their Best Elite.

But what’s new? Really?

Good thing this stage is only 10 days away because I can’t wait for it..
