Code Blue 2nd season – final thoughts

Somehow this ended up taking almost week even though they’re basically 5-minute thoughts ^^; This is no in-depth analysis, so don’t look for that here. Just my usual senseless ramblings.

Dun dun dun let’s get this thing started!

Michishige Sayumi Official Blog – April 2

Don’t like Sayu or even care about H!P anymore, but I’m subscribed to her on Google Reader. Among the 500 entries she writes everyday, this happened to catch my eye.

Code Blue 2nd season – 11 (finale)


This took quite a while because I really didn’t want to just hurry it up and get it over with — it’s actually double the length of my regular CB2 posts. Quite problematic to finish as well, since I had a bad case of selective amnesia and kept forgetting what happened despite intense staring at the screenshots. There’s a staggering 144 screencaps which is something like double last week’s amount… It doesn’t look like that much after various (MANUAL) resizes, but yeah, there’s actually 144 in here. I am never going through this again D:

Oh and I was distracted by the World Figure Skating Championships too. Mao-chaan (゚∀゚)ノ

… Uh yeah. I’m sure we’ve had enough of my excuses now.

Those procrastinators in the CB production team are worse than me though. Apparently, the final bits of filming for this episode (Shiraishi’s parts) finished ONE DAY before the airing. That would be the 21st. Holy. Crap. I’ve been one-upped :\

It’s the last time we’re gonna be able be able to do this, so I should probably stop stalling and get this thing started!

Utaban put on indefinite hiatus

★ 『うたばん』休止、後継番組も石橋&中居

During the three-hour special of Utaban, entitled Tokuban, it was announced that Utaban would be put on indefinite hiatus and a new show called The Music Hour would be taking its place starting in April. The hosts will still be Ishibashi Takaaki and Nakai Masahiro.

This is pretty shocking news as the show had been running for over 13 years. I practically grew up to Utaban while following the Jpop scene; it’s one of the few shows I don’t mind watching no matter which artist is on. From Morning Musume’s ex-member Iida Kaori being nicknamed “Johnson” to Ohno Satoshi of Arashi fighting with Nakai every time they’re on, Utaban was truly an unforgettable show.

Hopefully the new show won’t lose Utaban‘s old charm.

now how many people thought this was going to be a CB post www

Code Blue 2nd season – 09

WOOT! Record time finish. Changed the blog theme while I was at it too since it’s been so long, though I do miss how the previous theme was so spacious. Maybe when I tire of this one I’ll go back that one, lol.

Today’s episode title is “The Heart’s Wounds”, so exercise caution with your lacrimal glands before proceeding.

By which I mean “get a tissue box ready” :|

Code Blue 2nd season – 08

Whew, been so busy that I didn’t get to watch the episode until today. I predict a lot of strange and repetitive wording in this post cuz I’m sleep deprived + writing this in a semi-rush (before Monday rolls around again rofl).

Code Blue 2nd season – 07

Holy crap… I would’ve finished this at least a day earlier if I didn’t go nuts with the screencapping. Essentially a pic-spam post; I kinda went all out. Is this what they call the power of love!? Hahaha.

I don’t have any good topics for digression today, oh, except for women’s figure skating. Fantastic performances, but I wanted to see more of Asada Mao’s crazy-cute smile! … OKOK, maybe I should stop here.
