hair, monsters, and a swordsman

+ *Luke Skywalker voice* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Well, damn! Here I was believing all these years that my hair was just too thick to stay put in those braid loopies. And wondering where the hell Leia hid the tufty ends of her braids.

+I found that article in the first place because I am convinced that there is a pic out there with Jessica Sula wearing Leia hairbuns. I saw it once, I swear. Still no luck in finding it, if it exists… but I now am thisclose to making a Star Wars!Skins Tumblr photoset with Grace as Leia, Rich as Han, and Alo as Luke (Farmboy, geddit?).

shhhh, this is how I deal.

+That Naboo underwater chase in The Phantom Menace is ten times funnier if you imagine that Qui-Gonn and Obi Wan were trolling Jar Jar Binks through the whole scene. THINK ABOUT IT. They are both perfectly straight-faced when those things come at them out of nowhere, and come on, it’s kind of hard to believe that they never Force-sensed those gargantuan underwater disturbances.

Further proof of this: Jar Jar squawks and passes out, and then Obi Wan tells Qui Gonn: “I think you overdid it.”

(lol, so George Lucas probably didn’t intend the line to mean “Epic trolling, Master”. But it’s way more fun that way, and he Rick-Rolled us with Jar Jar, SO.)

+ I have only now processed that this is going to be an actual movie on actual movie screens.

GOOD GRAVY, that is actually going to be in my eyeballs.

I haven’t seen Rurouni Kenshin in years and years, and oh my gosh, this takes me back. WAY back. Watching it religiously on primetime AXN…and, if the episode reached awesome level, rushing home from school at noon to catch the rerun. The epicness that was the Shishio Makoto episode arc (brrrrr: he is honestly one of the most terrifying animated villains EVER). Getting the Trust and Betrayal prequel and marathoning it many, many times with my friends and little bro. And thinking it was one of the most beautiful things I’d ever seen put to animation. I still think that.

:boggles at trailer: OOH. That Kaoru? Is that Megumi or Tomoe? THAT is definitely Sanosuke because the rooster-y hair and the white outfit and the BIGASS sword and wow Sano, I had a monster fictional crush on you.

And ahhh, Saito! I pictured him more roach-like, but that’s okay. Crossing my fingers that he’ll be the fabulous bastard I know.

Wait, where’s Yahiko?

oh help

what is air

I hope this is released everywhere, with a subtitled theatrical version. Because tons of grown-ass fans WILL be slavering to see this!

(Amusingly, the little bro’s reaction when he heard about this was something like shitshitshit, please don’t tell me it stars Tom Cruise.)

XD I've been thinking about going to see that in theatres just for the experiance of it. And the fact that I am madly in love with Ewan's Obi-Wan has nothing to do with that. Nope.

AND I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE KENSHIN REVIVAL! Did you know they're actually making another OVA? It's going to be during the Kyoto arc and from what I understand it's supposed to be from Misao's POV. And there's going to be a special new manga chapter written too! *flails happily*

I just saw it! It's what prompted me to post, actually. AND YESSS, EWAN'S OBI-WAN IS SO GREAT. I'd almost forgotten how much I loved him, but the rewatch has reminded me!

(And ahem, Iii...might have more Padme/Obi-Wan feelings than I suspected. *considers looking for fic*)

Oooh, really? And from Misao's POV, Misao who I never, ever got enough of in the anime? That's like my dream OVA, then! <3 I hope Aoshi's in it; they were SO my favorite canon couple in the series.

And there's going to be a special new manga chapter written too! *flails happily*
I'm not knowledgable about the manga but new canon is ALWAYS exciting. :D

: D EWAN IS AN EPIC OBI-WAN. I seriously adore him, it is why I love the movies so much I think actually. ^^ ;;

Dude! I totally ship Padme/Obi-Wan!! I was so disappointed that they didn't take that route in the movies, I was certain that would be the reason Anakin went to the dark side. . . There are good fics out there. You are making me want to look for them now! XD

Yup! That's what has been said anyway. ^^ I'm actually super excited, I love Misao and the Kyoto arc is my favorite! I'm sure Aoshi will be there! And they're getting all the original Japanese VAs back for it, though I think the guy who did Saitou died sadly. :(

Oh, you'd like the manga I think. :) Though I'm probably the only person who's not obsessed with the final arc. Not that it wasn't good, I just think the Kyoto one was a lot stronger.

Will respond to other comment tomorrow, I must rush off to bed now. D:
