it's seriously not that hard to read LOL it takes me a couple of seconds to read per page, and with a manga reader, or just with the winxp picture client, it doesn't take that long to go through a volume. if it was in book version it would probably have taken me even less time. it's because HYD real...

hi everyone, i've just got my 2 cents to add to this topic~~! for the bit where tsukushi gets the drinks poured on her at shizuka's party, she didn't do anything cos one of the girls said "you better not make a scene and ruin shizuka's party". similarly, during the shoe-licking scene, you could tell...

@gingin: i have to agree that they could've done with a much better costume director~ shun's outfits were acceptable except for all his turtlenecks, which is like 80% of the time!! i also agree that the airport scene in ep2 was the best ensemble for rui so far, except i really liked that long white ...

i LOVE jun's doumyouji to bits, but vic's rui in mg was also pretty good (well in any case, all through mg i was hoping tsukushi would get with rui instead of doumyouji...). but still, i think my love for jun's doumyouji in hyd surpasses anything else, so i can't help but vote for doumyouji. in the ...

@ShinAkatora: lol i don't think i can ever see someone say "tw!mg acting > jdrama!hyd acting" and be able to stay totally neutral about it. jun's eyebrow alone can express so much more than jerry ever did in mg~~ i know everyone's entitled to their own opinions, so i just had to rebutt with my own =...

Anyway, iIn the preview of the third episode, what was he doing running around Tsukushi and then saying something to her and running away? I can't remember what scene this was in the manga... he was asking her out on a date~ remember in the manga when all he said to her was the location and time an...

Even though it was the guys' first real acting job, that makes it no real excuse for their mediocre performance. Of course you have a long way to go as a beginning actor, but you do expect a lot from your audience as a director (and casting director) when you show the viewers something that, on occ...

Can anyone confirm what's the actual rating for the first episode? I'm just curious XD lol yeah it is pretty confusin...

my 2 cents: i watched the first episode of mg (cos my friends said f4 was soooooooooooooo hawt), skimmed through the rest (cept for the vic scenes), and stopped watching near the end when vic goes to canada. i didn't touch mg2 after seeing a preview in a video store. i've watched the first episode o...
