Today my Japanese Studies lecture was on gender and sexuality stereotypes in Japan, which is cool since they showed some Utena, Sailormoon and Maria-sama ga Miteru. Lots of time was devoted to yaoi, yuri, their history and reasons why people actually like those. As is customary for this site, I will be writing an article summarising what I’ve learnt from the lecture, but as a precursor to that and as material for my presentation on this topic next week in tutorial class, I put up a short survey on this, which I hope you guys and girls could help with.
I chanced upon this really black book just now. As I was flipping through and checking out the contents, I realised it belongs to the protagonist of Darker than Black, Hei. Here’s an excerpt from week 4:
I eated many many bowls of pig rice today! Happy happy. The stupid yellow fat boy still annoys me. Why is his boobs bigger than my Pai-pai’s? I like big boobs. The world is against me. All my favourite boobs are no more or shrinking. Amber, why you shrink you boobs? The stupid huang fat boy keeps ordering me around, but today I eated many many bowls of pig rice and now have many many energy, so I grab his big man boobs and use my contractor powers. A bit, a bit only. Mao, the stupid cat who has been neutered by me yesterday, laughed and said the burnt smell is like BBQ. Today was a funny day.
Apparently today is the day Impz of THAT was chucked out of his XXXXXX’s XXXXXX 20++ years ago. Congratulations, if flying headfirst out of a meatchute is a crowning achievement.
Yesterday was Sasa of Heterochromia’s birthday! Wow, Happy Birthday to you Sasa! Here’s wishing you get the chance to read more Riuva articles!
Onto more important things, I made a impulse buy today.
It’s Yuffie and Reno from FF7: Advent Children. Notice something missing? It’s Kadaj, the 3rd guy in the set. He’s such a fag. I told myself never to buy more Playarts figures but I guess FF7 stuff are ok. I will probably buy only FF7, FFX and FFT merchandise out of the whole franchise. I wish they would make some Xenogears figures and mecha though.
I can’t believe there’s an anime so related to my major! I’m not exactly doing agricultural sciences, but rather Food Science and Technology, of which microbiology and nutrition are large components of, so this show interests me even more than mecha. Rather than the usual anime which seeks to entertain, Moyashimon is more like an educational programme masquerading as anime.
The shirt-production has been on hiatus for the longest time no thanks to the amount of labour it takes to make one, which is a big deterrent. But I finally moved my ass and set up an online store at Cafepress. Right now, you can start buying all the Riuva merchandise you want! It’s probably better for the US buyers.
For the local Singaporean ones, contact me at email@example.com if you want any of the shirts as I can get them cheaper if they are ordered in bulk (more than 15 of the same design).
