If our love is insanity, why are you my c l a r i t y?
There are some mistakes a person must make even though he/she knows it will be a mistake from the beginning. Well, watching Hemlock Grove is a mistake I needed to make. I can honestly say that my life would not be what it is today if I did not experience the hot mess that is this show.
The show tried really hard to be something special, and I just wanted to pat it on the head and say “bless your heart.” An interesting story seemed to be buried somewhere under the confusion. Sadly, that story never really managed to pickup the pieces and present itself. Strangely, I believe this was the show’s best attribute as well as its fatal flaw. I kept watching because I wanted to make sense of the mystery; however, the wait was in vain. Instead of giving resolution, it continued to serve mountains of WTF. Therefore, the little show that wished it could…couldn’t.
I’m not ashamed to admit that after avoiding it for several weeks or months, I probably would watch a second season of this mess (if there is one). I would totally be that person in that relationship that should’ve been over long ago like “things will get better; I know they will.” Yeah. I disappoint myself sometimes.
Ugh! Here’s to making more viewing mistakes and watching shows that leave me like WTAF!
All I wanted was you
I want these gentle hands.. and this kind smile..
In the midst of an amine binge, I stumbled upon Princess Jellyfish (Kuragehime). Needless to say, I found a new series I love. Sadly, the anime is only 11 episodes (BOO!). However, where there is manga, there is more. And the manga is even more flawless than the anime.
The story is completely adorable. I don’t want to spoil the series so I’ll just say that after a chance encounter, two seemingly opposite personalities, Tsukimi and Kuranosuke, unite with a common vision to accomplish a common goal. One likes jellyfish; one likes fashion; and together they create a unique fashion line to generate capital in order to save the apartment complex where Tsukimi lives from being demolished. As they work to achieve their goal, their actions affect many, from Tsukimi’s quirky group of friends (who live at the complex) to Kuranosuke’s political family (who is monitoring the state of the redevelopment project because elections are soon approaching) to members of the redevelopment firm.
The dynamic between Tsukimi and Kuranosuke is interesting because she is most comfortable around him when he is dressed as a woman. Yes! Kuranosuke cross-dresses. Oh, and Tsukimi’s friends believe Kuranosuke is a woman named Kurako. This setup allows for countless amounts of hilarity to ensue.
Anyway, I cannot wait to see how things turn out. Bring on the torture of waiting for updates.
