“The day I was born I was born free and that is my Privilege.”

Honey and Clover or Hachimitsu to Kuroba, I watched the Japanese live version because of Toma Ikuta, I liked it.  But now that I had seen the manga, what can I say but Kawaii! Shiawase da.

Quotable Quotes:

Harada to Rika: You don’t need to have a home to go back to.  You already have me.  I will never leave your side.

Takemoto:  The thing called the ferris wheel is here so you can peacefully sit with the person you like and traverse the sky.

Nomiya to Yamada: You lousy girl, I told you to call me if something happened.

>> This was after he learned through Miwako that Yamada volunteered to work on weekends at Harada Design where Mayama, the one who just recently dumped her, works.  He called the Harada Design’s office to talk to Yamada, but Yamada insisted that she was doing okay, he had nothing to worry about.  Nomiya sensed otherwise.  He snatched his car keys from the desk and headed to Tokyo, which from Tottori is a nine-hour drive.  He arrived there and found out that Miwako requested the depressed Yamada to go to Tottori to give something to him.  Immediately, he — even though he hadn’t slept yet — drove back to Tottori.  He arrived there by afternoon.  Yamazaki, Nomiya’s colleague, kept Yamada busy all day touring Tottori after learning from Miwako that Nomiya was desperate to see her.  Nomiya was just in time when he got there.  Yamada just said that she really had to go back to Tokyo because it was getting late.  He grabbed her arm, dropped in the couch and said this before falling asleep:  “Yamada, don’t go back.  We’ll talk when I am awake.”

<Imagine that! Eighteen hours, almost a day of driving, without taking a rest, just to see a girl and console her.>  I like their “relationship” more than what the others have. <Kilig>

Hagumi-chan after being wrapped by Morita with a kiss and, literally, with a red scarf.  I rewinded it several times just to see again and again Morita’s expression after  the kiss.  I just laughed and laughed and laughed and wait, oh, I laughed. 😀

Mayama, Nomiya, Yamazaki

Nomiya, aishiteru wa.

In my Shinto-Buddhism, thou art the Nirvana!

Finally, I had watched Incubus’s Look Alive concert video! I was smiling the whole while I was seeing it.  I love it infinitely!!

I must say how lovely (say it British) CyberLink DVD player in my brother’s laptop is.  It has a capture video snapshot function and there I had almost 500 Incubus’s panoramas.  All of them I adore!

Here are some of my most, most favorites — to blink is to betray:






From percussion to string



Unnamed specie

Sunset Boulevard

Soliloquy:  To be or not to be.

Prague: Czech it out!

Grit to greet

A voice







Enough for I fear I may upload hundreds of photos here. 😀


Could you move in slow motion?
Everything goes by so fast
Just slow down a little
Save the best part for last

You speak in riddles
Your intentions turn me on
I’m your’s forever
Will you love me when I’m gone?

When I’m gone!

When I’m gone,
You’re an unfenced fire!
(When I’m gone,)
Over walls we’ve trampled!
(When I’m gone,)
It’s you I admire!
(When I’m gone,)
My living example…

Your eyes are an undiscovered ocean far away
Any minute now keeping
Both poets and priests at bay
Don’t get ahead of me
Could we just this once see eye to eye?
Could you want perhaps me?
Ask me how it feels to vie

To vie!

You’re an unfenced fire! (to vie)
Over walls we trampled! (to vie)
It’s you I admire! (to vie)
My living example…

It’s a photograph discovered a decade after
It’s a cannon blast disguised as a firecracker
It’s enough to bring a brick wall to its knees
And sing, please

Could you move in slow motion?
Everything goes by so fast
Just slow down a little
Save the best part for last.
