ANOTHER year has passed! Yasashii sekai… is now a ripe old age of THREE!!! Awwww! I would have never imagined to get this far!! I feel like this year has gone by very quickly. I feel a bit apologetic as I have been busier this year resulting in fewer posts. I hope you guys still find it entertaining and enjoy spending a few moments of your time here. *cross fingers*

Now what are the key highlights in the last 12 months? Let’s just quickly run through a few memorable stories from the last 12 months…

Let’s start with the mangas!!

Girl Friends

Oh I miss Mari and Akko!!! This manga series was sweet, lovey and dovey and obviously had some drama thrown in. On the whole we got we wanted and they even got down to some serious business. HOHOHOHOHO!! I would have loved to see them grow up into women in the workforce!!! I must say, the art here is amazing and there have been some scenes that are absolutely breathtaking…*thinks of the karaoke scene*

Octave

This manga series seriously brings up a mixed bag of feelings. It’s good at times and sucks in some chapters too. On the whole, it’s still an amazing piece of work with almost real like characters. Oh and best of all, it’s an adult woman with ANOTHER adult woman! Bring these on!!!

Sasameki Koto

FINALLY Ushio realises her feelings for Sumi!! BUT OMG this manga is going at one-tenth of the pace of a snail’s! I’ve almost forgotten where we’re up to! *pause* Actually…I have forgotten -_-” *SIGH* Pick up the speed please!!

Now onto the animes!!!

K-ON!!

Loved the gang although I did feel season 2 lacked the power to keep my attention and the music wasn’t as good. Nevertheless, I still think Mio and the gang (admittedly I have a soft spot for Mio) are heaps cool! Love the hoodie, Mio!! *wink*

So Ra no Wo To

I felt like this was the K-ON! gang but in another time and world!! hahaha Can you guys spot the parody pic up above?? hehehe Story wise I felt like it lacked a bit of excitement but it was pleasant to watch. Art was wow too!!

Sono Hanabira

Oooh la la… *wasn’t me look* Umm…go to Google images and do a search to find out what the big hoo haa is about. I should give the visual novel a go…anyone know whether I can get a Mac friendly version?

Highschool of the Dead

Scantily dressed and well endowed girls carrying guns and kicking arse…Oh! There are guys and some zombies around too! hahaha I didn’t expect this one to be so entertaining and despite the ecchi-ness I recall that there was some real depth in seeing the gang survive the zombies breakout. I’m looking forward to the OVA!

Angel Beats

Great art!! And of course Tenshi and her ma po tofu!! HAHAHA OOOOOH maybe I’ll make some this weekend!!! YUM!!

Psychic Detective Yakumo

I really enjoyed watching this paranormal detective show. The stories were moving and the soundtrack is just AMAZING!!! Must give this a go!! I bought the OST. ^_^

I’m not usually a huge fan of watching TV shows but this year was an exception!!

Rizzoli & Isles

A kick arse detective TV show with a super cool headstrong detective and a smarty pants elegant looking medical examiner!! LOVE this! And they’re coming back for a season 2! OH YEAH!!

The Real L Word

This was entertaining to some degree (I preferred some stories over others) but some were a BIT too much…I don’t regret watching it though!! hahaha My favourite couples: Stamie & Tracy and Nikki & Jill and Mikey & Raquel!!

Lip Service

This is just drama but is like the Real L Word but with a heavy layer of dark themes shrouding it…drugs…lots of alcohol and a hidden past. It’s a quality drama with nice to watch characters but I didn’t like the heaviness of this drama. Not really my thing.

However, the best of all in this category for me must be…

***Alicia and Kalinda from The Good Wife***

Trust me!! This is good!! It’s a legal drama show. Here’s a clip of their scenes in the first episode.

Hope you guys have enjoyed your time at Yasashii sekai…!!!! Thank you everyone for your support!!!

Yasashii sekai…’s 2 year old birthday post

Yasashii sekai…’s 1 year old birthday post

Rizzoli I knew ages ago (season 2 expected to be in 2011) but The Real L Word was just announced two days ago!!! hahaha I figured that JUST in case someone didn’t know, I’ll just make a quick post about the latter!! I’m pretty excited! I’m not saying it’s the best show ever but it’s quite unique  – I mean, a show about the lives of real lesbians? Apparently some of the gang in season 1 will stay on but they will bring in new faces. At the moment they’re still casting so timing is not sure yet.

So who do you guys want to stay on for season 1?! I want Tracy and Stamie (awww!!!) and Mikey and Raquel but I think the latter pair is unlikely to carry on simply because they seem so busy!!

Can’t wait!! If I hear anything more I’ll let you know!!

So Sapphire Onee-chan first brought my attention to this TV series back in June and I have been following!! It’s been tough trying to fit a TV show into my busy life but this one is WORTH it!! It’s based off a crime thriller book series so that’s off to a great start. Best of all, if you crank up the yuri goggles, you can really spot some subtext going on!! ^_^ If you don’t have time to watch the whole show then at LEAST watch episode 6!!!!

Here’s the opening of the show:

The two main characters are Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles. Rizzoli is a kick ass homicide detective and a bit rough on the edges but it’s all cool. ^_^ Isles is the complete opposite. She’s Boston’s medical examiner and is elegant and always well presented. As Jane says “looks like you’re always ready to do a catwalk”! ahahaha There’s a bit of a quirk to Isles character – she’s super intelligent – almost to the point where she cannot hold a normal conversation without the other person looking up a word she’s used in the dictionary!! hahaha

Rizzoli and Isles are like the perfect team and together they bring down the crime rate in Boston. They also tend to like holding conversations in the bed…hehehehe As I said, there’s DEFINITELY yuri subtext there!! Even the guys at AfterEllen agrees!!

If only they took things a BIIIIIIT further…

Gokigenyou!

Hello! Now let's cut to the chase! If you're here to squeal about yuri or update yourself on some Japanese dramas/movies and gossip - then this is the place to be!!! I personally prefer the squealing over yuri amongst other things!! HEHEHE (^_^)V
