walkwithheroes: [Hong Gil Dong] ([Yuukan Club] Chemistry)
After much work (nearly a year), much debating, and much laziness, I have finally posted the first chapter in this original series. After so long, I'd really love some feedback from my f-list.


The summary: Kitagawa Takayuki is from the third richest family in Japan. He also attends the super-exclusive high school, St. August. As the King of the school Takayuki’s word is law and everyone follows his every command. All except Seo Aki, a commoner on several scholarships. At first Takayuki is annoyed, than angry, and finally interested. Takayuki decides to ask Aki out and is shocked (as is everyone else) when she turns him down, stating that she already has a boyfriend. Determined to make Aki his, Takayuki (along with his best friend) worm their way(s) into Aki’s life and the lives of those around her. Through this, unlikely friendships and romances are formed.


The idea - to take every shojo/romance cliche and turn them around, twisting them into something new and hopefully exciting.

I just wanted to post a quick note to let everyone know that [livejournal.com profile] zainichi_hana has a new look I'm still working on it, and in fact I've written the first chapter of the main story. I have about seventeen "two year ago" or pre stories up on the journal now. More will be coming soon.

I've updated [livejournal.com profile] zainichi_hana, so I'm hoping you all check that out. I've also got a shiny new moodtheme - Nobuta wo Produce. Yay!


Title: The (Least) Greatest Love Story Ever Told
Characters: Seo Akira, Seo Aki
Prompt: 091: Drama
Word Count: 501
Rating: G
Summary: Akira explains Romeo and Juliet to his sister.
Author's Note: Unbeta'ed. Takes place about two months before the series.


Timeless romance, my ass. He was trying to get into her pants.



I'm also "casting" Zainichi_Hana. So, if anyone has any suggestions, I'd really love to hear them.
walkwithheroes: [Hong Gil Dong] ([Delightful Girl] Moment)
No, the title has nothing to do with the post. I just like it. :)





I've updated [livejournal.com profile] zainichi_hana again. What can I say about that? Well, there's certainly some drama. So what, all the pre-series stories are all about the drama while the series itself brings the funny? Yeah, pretty much.





The new stories: (with a few words from me) )
walkwithheroes: [Hong Gil Dong] ([HnK] Girl next door)
 I've made several vids this week. I've already posted them over at youtube, but I need to put up links here. I've also been writing a lot over at [profile] zainichi_hanalately.  I think I'll write a couple of more before I post those links. 


Having taken sometime off of school, I'm going back in the spring. And yes, I'm already thinking of what courses to take. I must - must - take a math and a science. Oi! Why can't all my clases be things I'm good at?
walkwithheroes: [Hong Gil Dong] ([HYD-1] Jealously)
I've been writing drabbles for Zainichi Hana lately. They're all pre-stories to the actual series, but they're great to flesh out the characters and relationships. I had no idea Seo Akira would be so deep or so well groomed! Or that Eto Hiro would be so damn cool? (Ok, I knew that bit.) At first I was sad that no one was commenting on these stories, but now I don't care. I'm falling in love with these characters and I adore writing them.

My one issue: I've already thought up my next manga/jodrama inspired original series!

It was the first time I had ever seen anyone fall in love at first sight )



I made five videos over the weekend. Why? Because I had nothing to do. There's three Battle Royale, where I focused on the characters and relationships. And, because it's still on my computer, two Boku wa Imouto ni Koi . One focusing on Yori and Iku and the other a Iku character study type thing.


I'd also like to say something: it seems like people are taking vids from youtube and posting them on other (mostly asian) streaming sites. I have no problem with that, but I do have a problem with people claiming them as their own. It seems like that might be happening with my
videos. If anyone sees my videos on streaming sites other than youtube, with people claiming them as their own, please let me know.


It's like moving art )

[livejournal.com profile] zainichi_hana has been updated with two short 'two-years ago' stories. I really hope everyone will read them and give me some feedback. Oh, and feel free to friend that journal, as I may not always talk about updates here.

You weren't supposed to talk like that at thirteen years old






On another note, the new television season began this week. I find myself watching less and less television, as I feel there's really nothing on anymore. Monday nights I watch Heroes, Wednesday nights I watch Lost and Thursday nights I watch Gray's. But other than that, I don't really watch anything. I used to watch The Office, but I got sick of Pam and Jim, mostly Pam. And, I'm really this close to not watching Lost when it returns in '08. Also, nothing really appeals to me in the freshmen series catagory. I might watch the first episode of Moon Light, if only because it looks like it will be an Angel 2.0.





I did watch Gossip Girl last night. It was alright, I suppose. Though, I kept thinking: 'It's pretty, rich, white people with problems.' *rolleyes*. Why are pretty, rich, white people always so misunderstood and messed up? And why do they spend 100s of dollars on an outfit they can get at Wal-Mart or K-Mart for fifty dollars?





I bought Heavenly Forest off of ebay today for eighteen dollars. Just because I wanted to be able to watch it on my television. Hey, last week I bought a Battle Royale bootleg for fourteen dollars at Amazon. Actually, the BR bootleg was pretty good in turns of subtitles.





I really want to buy all the Japanese/Korean shows that I have on DVD-R. What I mean is, I want to buy the bootlegs or VCD's off of ebay. But, the cheapest are fourteen dollars (before the huge shipping cost) and I'm wondering if they're worth it. I mean, I don't want to waste my money on something with awful subs that wouldn't play on my DVD player. Anyone have any recs on sellers for that?





Oh! Boku wa Imoto ni Koi o Suru is already up on ebay, or at least what looks like a bootleg is. It claims to have English subs. Personally, I'll wait for the sub-group to sub it, so I can understand what they're saying more clearly. [Side note: Unfair: the movie is subbed. Is it worth watching?]

I've updated my other journal, [livejournal.com profile] zainichi_hana with character bios. Check them out, if you like.





I also downloaded Boku wa Imoto ni Koi o Suru (raw) and watched it last night. I have a few thoughts:



The Good

-Jun, Nana, and Yuuta all looked nice. No really, they were all adorable in their little school uniforms.

-Jun and Nana are great together and have good chemistry. [I heard a rumor they don't like each other in real life, though. If that's true, you can't tell on screen. Then again, it's usually the actors that hate each who have the best on-screen chemistry.]

-The outside scenes (during the day) are beautifully shot.

-Iku and Haruka went to an aquarium! Going to an aquarium is a much honored staple of romance dramas and shoujo mangas.

-There were some rather heartfelt moments between the characters of Yori and Iku, it made me sad. I wanted them to get a happy ending, even if they were twins.


The Bad

-The Tomoka character. I really didn't care for her.

-The lighting! Especially in the outdoor night scenes/bedroom scenes. Way too dark. I could hardly tell Yori's facial expressions during several key scenes.

-The fact that it took the characters so long to say their lines. Scenes went on much longer than they had to.


Other Stuff

-Um. . .I'm fuzzy on the ending. Did they 'breakup'? [I was told the manga, which spreads years, ends with them meeting in England in their late twenties/early thirties. They hug. 'Cause they've apparently decided to be together where no one knows them. How Flowers in the Attic! Only, less creepy.]



And, of course I had to do this video for the movie. The song just screams incest or, you know, Catholic school girl lesbians. Either one.


Title: All the Things She Said
Song: All the Things She Said by t. A. T. u
Disclaimer: I don't own the song or the film.
Details: WMV file. 13.84MB. 3:24 minutes.
Theme: A vid focusing on Yori and Iku.
Vidder's Note: Like I couldn't not do a video to this song for this film. I would like to say this: you know how it takes them forever to get a word out? (Honestly, I watched it raw and spent the two hours screaming: 'Spit it out, already!') Well, it takes them even longer to move. The characters spend half the film just sitting or standing and staring off into space. The made it a bit hard for action shots.

I've gone and made a new journal. Why? It'll house my new original fic, Zainichi Hana.

The Story:

Kitagawa Takayuki is from the third richest family in Japan. He also attends the super-exclusive high school, St. August. As the King of the school Takayuki’s word is law and everyone follows his every command. All except Seo Aki, a commoner on several scholarships. At first Takayuki is annoyed, than angry, and finally interested. Takayuki decides to ask Aki out and is shocked (as is everyone else) when she turns him down, stating that she already has a boyfriend. Determined to make Aki his, Takayuki (along with his best friend) worm their way(s) into Aki’s life and the lives of those around her. Through this, unlikely friendships and romances are formed.


Here's a link to the journal. I hope you all check it out.
