Argh! Still extremely slow at things currently, but hopefully the brain and body will start moving more quickly soon. A little something some folks might be interested in:

Saiunkoku Monogatari CD Soundtrack 2 - Jan 12/07
Saiunkoku Monogatari CD Drama 2 - Feb 23/07
Saiunkoku Monogatari CD Drama 3 - Mar 9/07

Unfortunately, no signs of any new books yet for either Kokumono or Shoumyou. And reading little excerpts here and there from Kokumono novel 4 as I worked through ep 25 reminded me once again that I really do like the novels. But it also reminded me of how much we lose going from a novel to anime and how some lines are trimmed down to the point that little of the original feel remains. >.<

I finally watched ep 31 the other night for Kokumono and did a mini-fest of eps 26-31 to remind myself of the story and what's coming up. I really must start posting about Kokumono and also about Shoumyou more. Maybe also about GH? There are various little things that are different, some aren't important and give a different twist to things in the anime, others bring up weird questions. (My current confusion is what happened to chibi-Ensei? Did the Satsujinzoku end up taking him along? If so, when did he learn how to fight like he did? Or... did Chougai (previous leader) do as in the novels and abandon Ensei in the woods? -- questions are all for the anime, the novels explain all this.)

Anyhow, I'm looking forward to scribbling up some more on Shoumyou and Rikugou (apparently there's a "u" on the end of that). I really like Guren/Mokkun, but Rikugou is fun too. ^o^ He needs to reclaim some of his lines and scenes. :P

Shoumyou - Seiyruu

Left him out in the cold?! *wails* *pets* Considering Seiran's fate, that might've been the kind thing to do. *twitch*

Rikugou is growing on me, too. ^_^ (How will I have any hope of learning if even you have trouble differentiating o and ou?! *wail*) While we're at it, more screen time for Seiryuu!

^_____^ I think Mokkun is my favorite of all the characters too. But Masahiro's adorable, so he comes in second. But Rikugou is my absolute obssession! I love him to deaeth, he's my fave of all the 'side' characters. Does what you said mean he gets more lines in the manga? ... Makes me wanna read it now, though I don't know where to find it. And, since this is the first time I've actually commented on your LJ, let me say that out of all the Kokumono fansubs I've seen, I like yours the best. I particularly like that you don't traslate some of the things like 'Hime-san' and such, (I saw -kun translated as 'young'. Young Eigetsu *shudder*) because it keeps the sense of the language and the nuances of the honorifics, and most of us know what they mean. Anyway (~sorry for the long comment!) I'm watching Shounmyou in French, so I haven't seen your subs for that one.

*huggles Rikougou again* I might come asking you for help if I can't find the mangas somewhere for Shounmyou. I love it so, it's my heartwarming anime of the season. Masahiro and Mokkun make me melt without even being a couple. It's just so sweet!

More scenes in the novels. There aren't any manga volumes available yet for the series although I think it's currently running in Asuka (main) and Beans Ace (side stories). Some are rather surprising, which reminds me, I have to re-watch ep 13. I get the feeling that snake scene between him and Guren was a bit different too... Not positive. ^^;

Masahiro and Mokkun are just *so* sweet. I'm really hoping we'll be able to go from the Kazane arc to the Tenko/Amakitsune arc. The end to the former (which we'll definitely see) and its continuation into the next is so... ;_;
