My pinch-hit story for [livejournal.com profile] otpimpchallenge was posted today! It is complete and utter crack, though, you know, not as much as the actual series. Have a read and a smile. :)

A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes OR Dustorio by Halrloprillalar / [livejournal.com profile] prillalar
Prince of Tennis, Horio/Tezuka, 4500 words, G.
Once upon a time in a faraway land, there was a tiny kingdom called Seigaku.

I just know once you read it you'll be supporting Horio/Tezuka as the TRUE Pillar Pair.

New Shin Tenipuri chapters out! Check out [livejournal.com profile] tenipuri for raws and translation. I was pretty happy! ) Looks like Konomi is taking next month off so we'll have to muddle through without any more chapters until June.

I'm on episode 15 of Oofuri and I'd forgotten how much I love all the baseball strategy! The emphasis on the catcher as the game-maker is so refreshing; most baseball series seem to be about the superstar pitchers. Also, my crush on Mrs Mihashi is back with a vengeance. She is so adorable! I want to back her into a corner and make her blush so hard...

Is there anything better than that first cup of coffee in the morning? Sometimes I can't wait to go to sleep just so I can get there faster.

I solved my "rewatch PoT anime or drama?" dilemma by rewatching Oofuri instead. Still so very, very charming. Very. ♥

Can I watch fast enough to get through before the first sub of the new season drops? (The raw is out already.) Good thing it's a long weekend!

I'm kind of wanting to do an all-baseball month, actually. At what season does Major stop being annoying? Any any other baseball series recs? (Anything by Adachi Mitsuru is already on the list.) Ooh, and did that Rookies movie/special ever get subbed? Must re-watch that series too. And maybe the baseball bits of Kamen Rider Kabuto.

Promoting InuKai Love (PIKL) : [livejournal.com profile] disutansu is hosting an InuKai Love Post. Go and post about why you love InuKai. Post pics and links and fic. Post songs and poems. Post multiple times. I know I plan to. :) Never have I loved a pairing so much. I can't believe it's been three years and I'm still not done with them.

I updated the Oofuri recommendation post with more downloads, links to art and episode summaries, and a lot of love. I have stuff I want to say about chapter 5/episode 6 and Abe (♥) but it will have to wait til later. I am shipping practically everyone with everyone else. Damn.

I'm a bit behind with my flist reading but I will catch up soon. ♥ to all!

Ookiku Furikabutte

Ookiku Furikabutte.
Baseball. Boys. Burning youth. Holding hands.


Do you believe in love at first sight? I've been flailing since I saw the first anime raw and read the first manga chapter. Oofuri is a golden combination: a great sports series and lots of scope for slash.

Ookiku Furikabutte -- Oofuri for short -- is a sports series about a high school baseball team. Mihashi was the starting pitcher at his junior high, not due to skill, but to family connections. He was hated by the rest of the team and, without their support, never developed any self-confidence. Now, at Nishiura High School, he reluctantly joins the baseball team and it's up to Abe, the experienced catcher, to build Mihashi up and turn him into an ace.

I have followed a lot of sports series and this is the first one since Slam Dunk to make me this excited. Unlike most baseball series, Oofuri doesn't focus on the hotshot pitcher. Instead, it's about team work, partnership, pulling together, learning to fly. And lovely boys.

Why you should watch & read Oofuri

Because it is the BEST THING EVER. *flail* Also:

Oofuri is a great story with a fresh take on sports series, especially baseball. You can enjoy it just for that, but there is so much potential for slash as well, lots of pairings, both with Nishiura and the rival teams. Even though I'm supporting the True Battery Love of Abe & Mihashi, I already have two other Mihashi pairings I'm looking forward to writing. I haven't seen a series with this much pairing potential since Prince of Tennis and I've followed a lot of sports series.

There's not much by way of English fanworks yet but I'm hoping that as the anime and manga become available in English there will be more. In the meantime, there's fanart and doujinshi to keep us going. Jump on the bandwagon with me! We'll ride in the parade!

Too much fic to read! *brain breaks* While I'm fixing that up, here's what I'm watching from the new anime season.

Ookiku Furikabutte
Expect a detailed and persuasive pimp post on this series once the first episode is subbed. For now, let me say that if I set out to design my perfect sports series, well, okay, that would be a hockey anime with Kiyasu and Onosaka. But if I couldn't have that, it would be a high school baseball series with great characters, lots of heart, and a battery in love. Oofuri is all that and then some. Mihashi, the pitcher, has no self-confidence and it's up to Abe, the catcher, to build him up. And then there's Hanai. And Tajima. And Momo-kan and Shiga-sensei. And and and.

I don't think I can overstate how excited I am about this series. I've watched the raws for the first two episodes. I've read the three manga chapters that Entropy has scanlated. If the manga used furigana, I think I'd be struggling through the raws with my dictionaries. I made a comm for all the fic that you and I are going to write: [livejournal.com profile] oofuri_etc. There is also an info comm: [livejournal.com profile] oofuri.

You will be hearing more about this. A lot more.


Over Drive
More high school sports, this time cycling. After two episodes, I'm not super-impressed, but now that we've got over the First Trial for the Underdog Protagonist and we're on to Team Building, it should be a bit better. I guess I'm watching because A. it's a sports series, B. the credits sequence promises hot boys in bicycle shorts, and C. Okiayu Ryoutarou is in it. Allegedly. I haven't heard him yet.


Romeo x Juliet
ANN says: "This is a story of a young and tragic love, set in the aerial city of Neo Verona." Juliet kicks some fucking ass. And Okiayu is in this one too.

That's everything I've tried. What new anime would you rec?
