|Showbiz/acting with character development
(2 posts, 1749 views) Posted: 1318d 16h, 23m ago by tsubasa22 in I'm Looking For...
While re-reading Skip Beat, I realized how much I love the parts where the female lead is actually in her acting job and progressing as an actor.
So, I went up to look up some Showbiz/Acting series with the use of the tags, but a lot of them were very cliche, and dea ...
|Differences between J-pop and K-pop?
(39 posts, 8843 views) Posted: 1328d 2h, 7m ago by tsubasa22 in Music
Both countries have diverse music.
People tend to stereotype Korean music as "kpop idols" or "idol groups," but beyond the surface, Korea has much more. I hate it when people lable Korean music as "not diverse" because th ...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's implied that Tomoyo has feelings for her best friend, Sakura. But she never tells Sakura the truth, and actually helps Sakura with her other romantic interests.

Anything Final Fantasy. Even the ones that are not *gasp* Nobuo Uematsu (heck, I don't care what haters say, FF13's soundtrack was beautiful without Uematsu).
Anything Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Mana, etc...)
Anything Shoji Meg ...

Depends on the character.
Usually if they are interesting/have a special charm to them/have good character development I'll like them. Esepcially the character development part. Ooooh, any character with great character development is a big yes for m ...

RADWIMPS - Order Made
Only song I actually "cried" too. I usually tear up a bit when I hear some emotional stuff at emotional moments. But this is the only song I cried to like a baby, in my family's living room, in front of the laptop. The combo of th ...

Just a guess.
Feel So Good
Most likely not, but worth a guess. It revolves around a brother and sister in the showbiz, but the thing that the boy is older and the sister is younger. I think that's the main difference with the discription, but I'm giving it a shot any ...

(8 posts, 1433 views) Posted: 1546d 20h, 15m ago by tsubasa22 in I'm Looking For...

|Feelings on Orihime
(20 posts, 3182 views) Posted: 1564d 16h, 15m ago by tsubasa22 in Bleach
There are definitely better female characters in Bleach. Orihime's far from my favorite. But I don't think I hate her with a burning passion. She's too passive, too emotional, too feminine. Other characters blend their feminine aspects with mo ...

Kami nomi zo Shiru sekai
The male lead seems pretty genre savvy. The male lead knows every trick in the harem and dating sim game book.

Rie Fu & Nagi. Not that they're the most spectacular vocalists ever, but their voices are just the type of voices I love a lot. That soft, sometimes almosy airy lightness in their voice. ...

Ginjo is a total troll.
I'm a big sucker for twist endings, so I actually liked it a lot. I was beginning to honestly starting to like Ginjo a bit after all that Tsukishima-messing-with-yo-minds business, but maybe I should have remembered that Ginjo was all too suspicious ...

Ouran High School Host Club - Hands down one of the nicest manga-to-anime adpations I've seen. The stylish animation, the great voice acting, and most of all, balancing new plots with the original plots. It's difficult to stay faithful while being creative, an ...
