Wow. This post is more than a month in the making. O_o Seriously. I keep on just saving it as a draft and now I totally forgot and don't know what to type. -.-;;;
Anyway, I remember that I just want to fangirl over èŠ±ã‚ˆã‚Šç”·å Drama. Because it's that good. Oh and don't forget the fact that: Tec -> big Hanadan (manga/jdorama/tdrama) fan. So, breezed through it in two days. Stopped the first day because my copy of episode 4 was busted. XD But if it wasn't I would have either skipped work or wouldn't sleep at all just to finish it. Ah, the joys of watching a series when you have the complete episodes.
Manga!HYD > JDrama!HYD of course. Nothing comes close to manga!HYD anyway. But Jdrama!HYD > TDrama!MG. Yes. And that's my opinion.
The thing I like about MG is that MG followed the plot of the manga!HYD closely. It packed more manga arcs since it has like 19 eps to squeeze all that's available of the manga at that time. And so it has most of the DomyoujixMakino scenes that I absolutely adore. So far that's the only thing I can think of that MG did better than the JDrama. Yeah, I liked the Taiwan!F4 but I like the Japan!F4 better. Cross that... I like Jun!Doumyouji better than Jerry!Doumyouji because between the remaining F3, I like Vanness!Akira and Ken!Nishi better. But as for Rui, I'll take a pass on that but I'm gearing towards Oguri!Rui.
Now as for the JDrama, even if they took only a few arcs in the manga, I like the pacing and the meshing of the story better. Or maybe it's in the cutting of the episodes that's why I wasn't able to stop myself from watching the series straight through. But still, doing a marathon of the series in one sitting says a lot for itself. Anyway, aside from the better storyline, I like the acting better from the JDrama. And yeah, not only from MatsuJun, but also from Mao and Oguri and all the others. But let's focus on MatsuJun. Because... OMG! He's Doumyouji. I mean, he's so freaking good actor that he wasn't just portraying the part of Doumyouji, it was like Doumyouji stepped out of the manga and came tot life! That's why I totally fell in love with MatsuJun! ♥♥♥ (*^_^*)
Anyway, I've uploaded a couple of freebies for some LJ comms and for good vibrations before and since these are sorta Hanadan-related, might as well share them here for those who want it.
The Wish PV, Utaban and Music Station performances are only available on FileFactory. The PV should be available as an FTP download there but the Utaban and Music Station ones are huge and might only be available on their P2P thing. That's weird since FileFactory said that files larger than 75Mb but less than 200Mb should also be available on FTP download. >.> But then FileFactory is starting to suck big time. I might upload those to MegaUpload one of these days. But more than likely, no.
