Nobuta wo Produce

Watched Nobuta wo Produce on the recommendations of friend.

Quite a good show actually. Considering it won 6 awards at the 47th Television Drama Academy Awards.

Basically its a show about the friendship between a girl who is always bullied, and 2 guys who came together with the aim to make her popular.

Touching stuff. Up to now I have no idea why ppl tell me “quite funny”, when I ask them how’s the show. *frowns* But I did enjoy watching it. 3 days for 10 episodes. haha.

Main actress is Horikita Maki. 20 yrs old. (17 at the time of the video). I thought she did extremely well, and was the main reason why I continued watching after 2 episodes. She protrayed being ugly and unpopular very well, yet all the time gave off an aura of being pretty. Ugly duckling turned swan. And I just kept wanting to see the end-product.

 I take back what I said about Yamashita Tomohisa being a boring actor. He played the role of an idiot very well. Maybe that’s what he excels in.

Lessons Learnt

-Loneliness is a very scary thing

-Everybody wants to be remembered

-Lots of people are acting in life. Including myself

-Having nobody believe you is an even scarier thing

Heartwarming show, yet having appropriate and exciting plot twists along the way. Something I can recommend.

8/10!

Impressions Natsu Matsuri 2008

So, went over to the Natsu Matsuri 2008 event  with the NUS Japanese Studies Society over at the Japanese School in Changi. It was my first time and while there was a downpour in the morning, it did little to dampen the mood, albeit I could do without it.

Spot Tedfox!

There isn’t much to talk about, other than the fact that the number of yukata wearing patrons were vastly outnumbered by civilians”. The event itself was held over a few areas. The left and right wings were where the stalls and game booths were held, while the performances, originally supposed to be held over in the field was moved over to the hall due to the rain.

OMG FF13 on Xbox

OMG let me just go into rabid fanboy mode here. ff13 is gonna be released on the xbox 360. Needless to say i am completely devastated by this piece of this. I was always a strong believer that ff13 should remain on the ps3. apparently, square enix thinks otherwise. I bet the japanese didn’t see this one coming. it is an outrage, and curse square for letting the financial clout of microsoft get to them.
I am very very disappointed and i hope sony has something to show for to counter this tomorrow.

Edit: kotaku has a live blog going on now with regards to this
