rurouni kenshin wa

late post, hehehe. but i still wanted to document being able to watch the rurouni kenshin live action movie… (like everyone else, lol!) and it was ozummm… at lahat pa ng synonyms ng ozum! here are the reasons why …

the cast is almost perfect. i initially thought that takeru sato is still waaaay too young to be kenshin (who’s supposed to be 29 at the time he meets kaoru, sato is 22)  but he looks all grown up nao and manly. he really did look like kenshin, red hair, scar, and all. nakakatuwa lang isipin na dati na siyang naging si kamen rider. i also think that takeru and emi takei, who plays kaoru, look so adorbs together, i hope they make babies. hahaha!

on the other hand, the other actors were all believable, although aoi yuu, who tries to annoy kaoru as megumi, can never be annoying to me. what was annoying though, was kanryuu’s bob and fake dentures. hahaha! i liked the kid who played yahiko too, i just hope he doesn’t grow up too fast, baka palitan ng actor sa next movie. the only thing i didn’t like was sano’s hair, it looked odd to me  for some reason…

the music. i would have liked to hear the original ones from the anime but they made it even better… sort of like a mix of traditional japanese music and rock. i stayed till the end just to listen to the ost. eto o…

there are light hearted moments like when kenshin says oro?! which is why i feel takeru is a really great fit for the role… in the manga and anime, kenshin says oro?! in a way that he looks chibi-deformed… and for a japanese person, takeru sato has exceptionally large eyes. there’s also sano’s fight with banjin where sano eats chicken and banjin says “the poor bird. i’m a vegetarian.” wahahaha!

the fight scenes aren’t vomit inducing but still realistic. miming made me watch 13 assasins before, it was all gore and decapitation but ruruouni kenshin’s fight scenes were not that bloody but focused on stances and superhuman flying flips and back flips. and finally…

the last scene where kenshin says “tadaima de gozaru yo” which means “i’m home”. it’s was a very simple ending… but to me it was the best scene of all because it’s beautiful and heartwarming to come back home to the people you love.

yun lang. i do hope they make a sequel on the shishio arc!

went to see miss engg 2012 with maki at the up theater last sunday… err, i was late, and i ended up at the back part of the theater. i was smiling at the guys who were keeping watch there and they were about to let me in… but as it turned out, they thought i was some miss catherine, whom they were waiting for. wahahaha!

andronica

anyhoo, this year’s theme is andronica. unlike last year’s super girly, lace-filled enggchanted, andronica is more of sexy robot glitter and metallics. there was even one contestant who came out wearing metal boobs. lol.

the hosts … they one of the reasons i really like miss engg. they too funny, i was laughing almost all of the time. this event really came in at a good time because i’m kind of overstressed at the moment so this was a great stress reliever. and to add to that…

ms. ge club 2012 … is absolutely adorable. maki’s from the ge club and she brings me sometimes to events like this. so, it’s no brainer that i’d support their candidate. from the top, he’s in his fisher-woman-robot costume, then skimpy yellow bathing suit thingy for his talent portion, followed by a black bikini for the swimwear competition.  i don’t know how he hid it but he hid it… you do know what’s it, right? hahaha. but he hid it well, anyway. hindi bakat! then my absolute favorite would be the long gown, in which he strutted around in a peachy stunner. he won best in long gown too.

and here are the rest of em! hahaha! most, i think are straight and the winner even said he wanted to win to prove he was worthy of the one he liked. ms. ge got fourth runner up too. so, all in all, it was a great pageant… kind of pervy to an extent but you do learn a lot of things, like women are strong like men too, and in some cases even more. let’s go again, next year!

yun lang. i love engineers!
