*aaah... they're back! they're back!! those lovely silly couple of nodame and chiaki!!

have u ever watch the tv shows "nodame cantabile" before? it's a j-drama adapted from a manga with the same title, guess it is a successful story after all... for it continues to anime and live action, and it does! actually i found these special episode coincidentally, when i went to an otaku store somewhere behind kfc iain with him and my brother after having our breakfast in colombo street. at first i just wanna borrow the anime version of it,  but then the shopkeeper said that there's a new special episodes of its live action... and of course, i couldn't helped it to not bring it home with me! not to mention that three of us really like its story, a romantic-comedy drama, filled with classical music athmosphere, a cute one ;) i still remember a scene from the last episode, when chiaki went to okawa looking for nodame and when he coincidentally met her in the seaside street, run to her and hug her from the back... omg, that was my favorite scene of all!

see? aren't they look so sweet??

and so the story goes to prague, where they went to watch one of viera-sensei's concerto. i never thought this story would be continued til they went abroad and so... for how much money they'll spend to make it til there, but they do! but as expected since this special episode consist only 4x50-something minutes, they make it short til it reach nodame's first mozart recital and chiaki's first debut as his prize for winning the platini conducting competition (if you read the manga it should be more than 10 episodes needed til there), but since they shorten it quite well and they've done a  good effort finding a mutual cast for jean donnadieu and other european casts (even though they dub the voice with japanese later on) satisfied me well ^^

hmm... now i can't wait to read the next volume of its manga, so hurry up ninomiya tomoko!!

*this is why i dislike indonesian horror movies

today i went back from klaten as usual, somehow i'm quite tired a bit--surprisingly for doing nothing. back then he called me right before i entered my car, asked me to go out for lunch and watch movies. there we are... standing in front of the one and only cinema in this lil' city, and actually i just lost my appetite to watch movie in a sudden. there are 5 studios with 3 indonesian horror movies, 1 indonesian drama comedy (i think), and the other one is hulk (and we watched it already). when he asked me to choose the movie, i give up. it'll be the hardest answer i ever give today, so i let him choose. we bought the tickets, having lunch (til we both deadly full ;p), bought some cds, and i accompanied him playing a racing game before the studio opened.

if it wasn't him i'm going out with, i'll probably put more effort to persuade to not watch the movie. it was horrible. just as i thought. it's about a girl initialed 'R' who is accidentaly died falling from stairs in her bf's house when she saw her bf having sex with another woman (which is later known that this another woman was already married! freako!!). the cheated couple being freaked out,  so that they hide R's body in the bushes. R's dad was very angry when he knows that his daughter died, for he was very sure someone responsible for her death. on the cemetery, he whispered to R's dead body and told her (in a very, very odd way) to stay in the world until she finds the ones responsible for her death and--of course, as usual; revenge. then the story goes... this and that, 'til at the end the cheated couple were dead--again, in a very, very odd way. based on what we've learned this past 5 years, people won't easily died that way. it was sooo cinetron-look-alike. apart from that horrible movie, on the way back home i turn on one of the cds i've just bought, and say... it was really good. a japanese (i think) female vocalist with soft voice--he said, singing our era's evergreen jazzy love songs rearranged in bossas style, and we both loved it!

...what a contrary with the movie ;p
