I finished watching Queen’s Blade: The Exiled Virgin on Crunchyroll. I had heard about it on the forums as it being ecchi. It certainly was and yet managed to pull off decent character development and storyline. The episodes were entertaining and went by fast. It certainly had unique character design. I kept wondering where the rest of Echidna’s snake was as it clung to her crotch. I gave this a 5/5 rating for ecchi and story. I plan on watching the sequel.
Just finished the k-drama Couple or Trouble from Crunchyroll. It based on a Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel movie called Overboard. I never saw the movie so I can’t compare them. Anna Jo is a hard-to-please rich bitch who ironically ends up as housekeeper after losing her memory. Anna’s character is really irritating which is sort of a turnoff. The pace of the show is slow at times but you’ll be rewarded with a great ending.
Just finished the Korean drama Queen of Housewives (a.k.a My Wife is a Superwoman) on Crunchyroll. It a love triangle comedy involving three couples. The background is the corporate world and all the backstabbing that goes with it. I enjoyed the show although there were some lulls at the end. Actress Sun Woo Sun (pic far left) is very pretty. She reminds me of Japanese singer Mika Nakashima. Lee Hye Young plays sexy spiteful bitch (pic far right). She reminds me of young Kim Cattral–I know that’s a stretch. Actor Yoon Sang Hyun is in this one as well. I’ve seen him in the Korean drama My Fair Lady.

This was a fun series that went fast for 80 episodes. That’s right, it took me 80 hours to finish this show. Great cinematography for a tv series. Lady Susano was just gorgeous. There were some funny moments. Many of the characters over acted their parts such as prince Young-po with his eye-rolling and faces. It was funny how many times Chumong’s enemies cursed his name every time they got pissed–I was thinking of making a YouTube video of it.
I didn’t think I’d like live action dramas. I’ve been engrossed in anime until recently. I gave them a try early this year and was pleasantly surprised. I think of them as live action anime. I started watching them on Crunchyroll and have made some DVD purchases as well. Coffee Prince has been my favorite so far which introduced me the actress Yoon Eun Hye. Her character is very moe.
Right now I’m watching Prince Hours and Jumong on Crunchyroll.
