Blabbering of a Fool
My Room…Part II
Previously, I mentioned there may be a second part for my room…well, here it is!!!
Less words this time…and this time, with regards to the anti-ODEX hype…just look at the pictures and you may get it…
My bloody mess of a room. And yes, I dun have a bed, just a super thick futon (yeah right, it IS a mattress!).
My computer table top. And yeah I know, the power points can be considered a fire hazard, can it?
And 2 new additions to my toy shelf!
My 2008/09 Chevrolet Camaro Bumblebee, from the Transformers live-action movie…did some additional painting to it to the weapon and the red spot on his head, which is supposed to be the Autobot insignia, but is actually just a square with grooves made…cause I dun have the ability to draw micro-size…and Robot Masters Beast Convoy, one of my favorite Convoys/Primes.
Now, my collection of Japanese drama DVDs…titles made known to me through fansubs…
My collection of Japanese drama DVDs…think they are imported from Taiwan…sad to say, Poh Kim is the only video outlet selling Japanese dramas, and this is the only version available locally with subs (Chinese, English, Malay etc.). So now, Poh Kim is definitely my favorite video outlet, unlike the rest who are only interested in current trends:
dumb Korean dramas. 😀
My first Japanese drama DVD: ギャルさー/Gyarusa, or Gal Circle…know about this title through a friend, who introduced me to CrunchyRoll. 🙂
My second one, and a must-have indeed: １リットルの涙/Ichi Rittoru no Namida, or 1 Litre of Tears…also know about this title through another, and on cable TV…the first drama that got me crying… 😛
Next, the drama that got me hooked on 山下 智久/Yamashita Tomohisa and 掘北 真希/Horikita Maki: クロサギ/Kurosagi, or The Cheater (?!?!) as written on the box…I know, the English title sounds like crap, but hey, they’re from Taiwan, so can’t ask for too much, ya? This title, I got to know through fansubs.
Got this drama because of 沢尻 エリカ/Sawajiri Erika-san: タイヨウのうた/Taiyou no Uta, or Song of the Sun (literal meaning, not like the one for the movie, ‘Midnight Sun’). This I got to know through fansubs too.
One of the best school dramas out there, with another one of the best onscreen pairing of Yamashita-san and Horikita-san…featuring another great actor, 亀梨 和也/Kamenashi Kazuya (not interested in him though): 野ブタ。をプロデュース/Nobuta o Produce, or The Makeover (another lame, but relevant title). And again, known to me through fansubs.
This is the best comedy drama I’ve watched so far…and also got me a bit interested in classical music: のだめカンタービレ/Nodame Cantabile, or Concerto Love (as written on the box). Got interested in this title on CrunchyRoll, and after watching the first, hooked I was…and now 玉木 宏/Tamaki Hiroshi and 上野 樹里/Ueno Juri are in my list of favorite actors/actresses. 🙂
Another of the best school dramas ever: ドラゴン桜/Dragon Zakura. Noticed this title again because of Yamashita-san first, then realise 阿部寛/Abe Hiroshi and 長澤まさみ/Nagasawa Masami are in it too, and eventually decided it’s worth keeping the DVD after watching through fansubs.
Next, movie DVDs!!!
Clockwise from top left: SHINOBI: Heart Under Blade; タイヨウのうた/Taiyou no Uta; 涙そうそう/Nada Sou Sou; デスノート/Death Note; ウォーターズ/Waters (Gigolo Wannabe); 着信アリ：Final/One Missed Call: Final
I dun understand why they decided to name <Waters> ‘Gigolo Wannabe’…
This is what many people online have been talking about: freebie/s with every purchase. In the case of these Transformers: Cybertron VCDs (~$36 for the entire 52 episodes), a poster of either OPtimus Prime or Vector Prime was given for free (I thought it was Megatron on the other poster, and so I got the Optimus Prime one).
And I wasn’t joking when I mentioned in a previous post that I bought Boxes 2-5 of BLEACH in one go, for they were selling at 4 boxes for $29.90. Sadly, I bought the first box for the same price…together with…
…the 5 ODEX VCDs which I have said to own (and I do! As you can see…). Lower tier: Azumanga Daioh; Middle tier: Mai HiME; Top: Petite Princess Yucie (Box 1 only). Now, tell me what you guys think about the packaging…ya?
The contents of an ODEX VCD box set: A CD album with the VCDs, with a case to slot into, and then the outer packaging with horrid design. Nothing else. And to think they sold one box for S$29.90 before.
And to those who have never seen the ODEX logo, here it is. Now you can be sure not to accidentally take the wrong ones (if you’re buying VCDs anyway).
Anyway, I’m still waiting to get my hands on 花より男子/Hana Yori Dango DVD (as highly recommended by Random J), and for プロポーズ大作戦/Proposal Daisakusen DVD to be released…and 花ざかりの君たちへ/Hanazakari no Kimitachi e DVD too…though it won’t be that fast…
