Day 24 – A BL that made you mad

*breathes in deeply* Today’s title is going to be Hyakujitsu no Bara (百日の薔薇), the anime. Just to make things clear, what I’m about to write next is based solely on the anime adaptation of the manga, as I’ve yet to read it.

I came across a really nice quote (from Maya Angelou I think it was) once, saying something along the lines of: you might not remember the exact words/events/etc., but you will definitely remember how something made you feel. I don’t remember much of what happened over the course of this BL show, but one thing’s for sure – I couldn’t wait to finish it just so I could go on MAL and give it a low rating ><.

Yes, we have a bit of a Romeo and Juliet thing going on, what with the characters being from two countries that are at war, yet they still love each other; yes, we have guys in uniform parading about, talking about fancy stuff like honour, pride and protecting your country; on the other hand, there’s this guy Klaus who’s basically raping another guy, Taki, for most of the duration of the anime. And I mean he literally leaves Taki bruised and bleeding by the end of it Oo.

I get the appeal of a dominant seme and the intention of adding drama to the story, but that kind of non-con really doesn’t seem alright to me. I don’t usually get upset with things, but this anime definitely made me mad while watching it. I guess the only positive thing about this post is that it was easy for me to pick a title :D:D.

Day 23 – Favourite type of male

I think I’ll just let some pictures do the talking for today xD.

Long story short, I guess what they all have in common is long-ish hair, they’re quite tall and more on the lean side :D. I’m also a fan of well-defined shoulders and curly hair :D:D. But then again, people who don’t have any of these characteristics might still be attractive depending on what kind of person they are. I guess what I’m trying to get at is that looks only go so far ^^.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 22 – Hardcore or softcore?

If we think of the above words as being the two ends of a spectrum, I think my preferences will fall somewhere towards the middle.
I love reading light, fluffly stuff as much as the next person, but a bit more action doesn’t hurt every now and then ^^. However, I’ve never been a big fan of hardcore stuff just for the sake of it (i.e., stories with random ding-dongs and bodily fluids all over the place).
Which (kinda?) brings me to another point – the build-up. For me at least, there has to be some sort of build-up to whatever’s about to happen otherwise more than half of the excitement’s gone. I remember reading some doujins that had really nice art and whatnot but none of the above-mentioned build-up. One minute the characters were casually talking to each other, then literally on the other page they were screwing in all ways possible oO.
I guess the short answer would be: soft- to mid-hardcore and always within some sort of context, because that just makes things all the more interesting :D.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
