Live Action Hakkenden

Finally getting around to watching the live action Hakkenden drama I downloaded a while ago. My word the guy they've got playing Shinno is fetching! I kept staring at him thinking he looked familiar, then eventually figured out that he played Yoshitsune in the recent taiga drama. Yoshitsune was supposed to be very, very pretty and I always thought they did an excellent job picking the actor for him.

I've pondered for years doing an English language novel adaptation for Hakkenden. Perhaps this year (since I've got the time) I will do NaNiwRiMo and finally write it. Who knows? My mother wants me to do a Kyoto travel guide, and I had been originally planning on writing a text on Oda Nobunaga for her in English (since there's practically no books dedicated to him in English, and the only one I've been able to find is so dry that even I, who know a lot about the time period, have trouble reading through it. I think this a sad lack, since Oda Nobunaga was pretty darn cool.)

Oh, crud. Must run or I will be late to my HR debriefing. High ho, high ho, it's back to work I go. (For the moment.)
