Stand Up!! episode 3 summary

He should worry more about what's on the outside.

The episode opens with Shou-chan in an ambulance, listing the things that scare him: his dad, Sadako (from The Ring), and when others get hurt. We see a flashback of when Chie fell off a swing and started bleeding. Kid!Chie tells Kid!Shou-chan that she’s okay but he still cried. Since then, he made a promise that if a woman ever fell in front of him he would try to help her. We see Shou-chan in a hospital running along Mochizuki-sensei, who is unconscious on a stretcher. We are taken back to when the 2nd ep. ended and he rings the doorbell. The door opens, but no one is there. He looks down and sees Mochizuki-sensei collapsed on the floor. He panics and calls for an ambulance. He gets to witness his sister in action and the “reality of a Japanese hospital,” according to her. She then tells Shou-chan to pay for Mochizuki-sensei’s visit, since he was classified as her “family member.”

Stand Up!! episode 2 summary

Hiding in the girls' bathroom & listening intently

The episode opens with Shou-chan telling us what he does to feel confident, which is think about the things he’s better at than Kenken. According to him there are three:

  1. Shou-chan is kind.
  2. He’s not picky.
  3. Shou-chan knows more about the manga Sangokushi.

Things Kenken beat him at include height, eye size and apparently penis size! This comes up again in later episodes. You all want to see Yamapi  naked, don’t lie! It’s only right after the makeout scene he had in the first episode, right?

Stand Up!! episode 1 summary

It's mostly about sex, but also about hotties!

DramaWiki | Jdorama | Crunchyroll

As I will not be reviewing everything that I watch, I will start doing summaries for the things that are not reviewed here. These are very spoilery, so it’s best that you avoid them if you don’t want to know what happens.

Cast: Yamapi, Oguri Shun, Ninomiya Kazunari (of Arashi), Narimiya Hiroki, Suzuki Anne

How did I find this? I’m not sure. I either saw a part of it on TV or ran across it in a random Youtube escapade. AND WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT CAST. This was made in 2003, and Oguri Shun has blond hair. It’s labeled as ‘dramedy’, but really you’re mostly getting hilarious shenanigans. Anyway, on to the summary!

Quick updates & birthday-wishing

First, the important stuff: I’m not dead! I know I haven’t posted in ages, but I became busy and unmotivated to watch dramas. This has changed, and I am now happily getting close to the end of Ja Myung Go. Just a reminder, this blog only does historical dramas at the moment. However, I do accept guest reviews/thoughts on dramas, so please do not hesitate to email me: tacti_sielu(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Secondly, new layout! I’ve been pretty crazy about After School lately. How crazy? Uh, I have their latest album Bang!, a matching poster, desktop wallpaper, screensaver, and Firefox start page. And I’m currently trying to change my Firefox persona to also be After School. CRAZY. So, enjoy the girls! Maybe it’ll make this place a little more boy-friendly? I know you like legs! You know who you are. ;)

Finally: HAPPY BIRTHDAY GENTLEMAN MIMI! Zhoumi’s birthday was not too long ago on the 19th. He’s on the background of both my personal Twitter account and my Zune. My After School thing is really nothing compared to my obsession with this man.

Bitch, you can't handle this level of sexy.

Taeyang, does that box contain somebody’s wedding dress? ;)

Man, I can’t believe this blog is already a year old! Time does fly…

Gong Yoo Released from Army!

You can read about it on Soompi. As my second favorite actor, I was really looking forward to him coming back. Though I’m taking a break from modern dramas, I would probably not be able to resist checking out his latest project. Are you guys excited? What sort of story would you like to see him in? He’s taking your call!

Note: You may have noticed a new tag. I have created this tag for news about actors & actresses that I think is important. As this is not a celebrity gossip blog, I recommend that you check out some of the blogs in my blogroll for that sort of thing.
