A sordid affair between girls, while their boyfriends remain ignorant?
Wow, feels like forever since I watched an anime…Sure this is an OVA but still…
Next week can’t come any sooner
Dear Readers, if you have ever wondered if Yukirin (and I think we can agree Mayuyu too) knows what the term ‘MAYUKI’ is, wonder no farther! She knows! She so knows it! She knows is in all its entirety and meaning!
No, I do not mean this in context, I mean it as it is! You know how Japanese (and many other fans) call MAYUKI MayuYukirin as their ship name? You have probably had that moment where you were confused as to what to actually call them, especially when AKS finally officially named them MayuYukirin when they released that duo song of theirs.
I should know, I have had a moment where I was conflicted and almost got rid of the MAYUKI tags from my blog! Thank God I decided on using both because during this Saturday’s Yukirin Time Radio, Yukirin finally put to rest that unease by letting us know that she knows!
Apparently the Chinese Fans call them MAYUKI as well which is where she heard it first. She says it confused her thinking that it was just a nickname until some English Speaking Fans explained to her that it actually was another word for MayuYukirin.
Hmmm, English Speaking Fans…Was that you Maddie? Come now, don’t be shy! Fess up!
In case you don’t believe me, here is an excerpt of that show. Sorry no subs but even without understanding Japanese you should pick up the relevant words…
Because you no longer need to fantasize!
For, this week’s Manabukun just gave us what Mirurun’s…um…sighs of happiness(?) sound like!
I have listened to enough of them to know for sure, 200%, that this is how she would totally sound like when, you know…
I still can’t believe my ears. Looks like I found my ring tone!
Like, this is no regular SSK, this is the YUKIRIN BOWL!
Jesus, I have never seen so much hugging, hand and eye sex in the same sitting like I have done with this 9th SSK Showroom special hosted by none other than yours truly, the Idol of Idols – Kashiwagi Yuki!
Dear Yasusu, whenever you ever look to retire, do not worry, there is a worth successor to your Kingdom. Yes, I know who you are thinking of already but you know, just in case you ever have to fall back to plan B, I am just saying!
But that is talk for other people, what I am interested in is the real subject at hand and that is WHO WON THE YUKIRIN BOWL?! That is going to be a tough one! And yes, that implies that Mayuyu might not have had it easy this time around! But that explanation requires details and time for those I do not have right now. There were of course some disappointments, I am of course looking at you Okappa-chan, Sakura-tan and Sashiko too! Actually add Sayaya and Jurina on that list too. I was expecting something from them and I did not get it but hey, competition was really tough and some already gave up all the way from the get go when Mayuyu struck the first blow! A blow that only the Soukantoku could counter by managing to take some points off the table in the early stages before the game even started!
Seriously, if you haven’t watched this showroom yet, you watched the wrong SSK! Get to it already! There are countless copies of this on YouTube, A!O has it too (though I do not recommend their copy. It skips a lot towards the last 3rd of the video).
But even though the battle is to soon be decided, here are my Top contenders:
Okay, that doesn’t help at all, huh? Well, that is all I can do. But really, who am I kidding, you all know Mayuyu is going to be in the Top 2 so…
Anyway, chew on this for a while and I will see you soon…
Because I can’t wait for this show to drop on Netflix anymore!
These pics of Naomi and Sophie behind the scenes are just killing me! You know, I really didn’t even think they would be this important actually! Hell, Naomi’s character is married (to Dr Manhattan no less) and Sophie is just a patient so I figured it would only be lingered on but won’t be that main a focus.
Well, these pics are telling me otherwise and I can’t help but get real pumped up for their time! The last time I was this gaga over BTS pics was Dakota and Kristen in their under-rated The Runaways movie.
Dear Jean (Naomi Watts) and Sydney (Sophie Cookson), Imma ready for you!
So, the Korean version of The Handmaiden released as the 3Disc DVD set had a special photobook that was completely different from the one that was sold separately and released Q3 last year.
Though I guess the last one was less about was we would expect from a PB because it was more like some tid-bit info on locations and such about the movie from the director himself. This one is the one you would expect and while I was a little disappointed with the first one, this was took all my disappointments away because it is so good. It has both photos of scenes from the movie and those you haven’t seen too.
And don’t get me started on that cover! Just when you thought this movie couldn’t possibly get any gayer!!! And as such, while I would have a bunch of pics here before the jump, this time the cover deserves all the attention because it is that grand! But even with that awesomeness, even as they did not have to, the back cover even goes a step farther by zooming out and showing us the faces of our girls, like anyone had any doubt as to who were these two people holding hands!
Anywho, you can just download the zip from MF or jump ahead and get the ones you want…But before I go, I wish to express the unfairness of it all that Kim Min-hee did not get all the awards possible for her lead role in The Handmaiden! Seriously, she was beyond acting in this movie. if you have seen her previous roles and know her true personality, you have to realise what an incredible job she did as Izumi Hideko! Seriously, so sad and so unfair!
I hope you all are ready for some awesome drama end of this month! The Trailer for Netflix-exclusive sultry thriller ‘Gypsy’ dropped and man, does it have me so pumped! Seriously, shows this month have been on point! And now we are getting a brand new show, all episodes dropping the same day (May the Lord bless Netflix!) and does the show look delicious!
From the trailer alone I know this is going down as one of my favourites! From 1min30s of footage I am already in love with Jean (Naomi Watts) and Sydney (Sophie Cookson). Hell, I won’t be surprised if there are already fics of the two!
And while the plot synopsis will have you think otherwise, there is going to be a good deal of these two, I can already tell from the fact that Sydney is also in all 10 episodes! She isn’t just another patient!
This show is going to be glorious!
Anyway, jump over for the trailer and some more caps…
