Ouran Manga Extras: Divining Ootori Kyouya’s Future

I know I’ve been horribly remiss about updating this blog but this is what happens when you’re going through a drama slump -.-;;;;;;

Anyway, I’m sure anyone who’s been reading this blog long enough knows my fondness for a certain Host Club member. The Viz edition of Volume 18 hasn’t been released yet but I’m sure most fans have read Omari’s Sister’s translation of the final installment online.

My understanding of Hatori’s notes is a little different from Omari’s Sister’s so I’ve decided to include my (flawed) translation here to supplement theirs. There can never be too much written about Kyouya in my opinion :D  (more…)

2011 Roundup Part 1: To All the Boys I’ve Loved This Year

So it’s that time of the year again to cast a retrospective eye on the events of the last 12 months. Kicking off the whole year-in-review process here at Midnight Express is my little tribute to the boys who contributed to many late nights and, uh, lost hours. Yeah, let’s just leave it as that.

But before we begin, a little song:

To All the Boys I’ve Loved This Year

To all the boys I’ve loved this year
Whose vids now clog my computer
Naked Shirtless hunks and high school hosts
I dedicate this post
To all the boys I’ve loved this year

To all the boys I stalked like mad
On Tumblr and the Internet
God, where did my time go?
I need a life I know
I swear I was never this shallow.

The year is coming to an end
‘tis now time to say goodbye
‘Cos other pretty boys are coming round the bend
And I’ve only 24 hours in a day…

To all the boys who shared my life
Who now are someone else’s vice
I’m glad you came along
It saddens me to say so long
To all the boys I’ve loved this year

(Adapted from To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before, by Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson)

This was written in a hormonally charged fog so if you’re hoping to glean some intelligent insight into the dramas of the past year, I’m afraid I’ll have to refer you to Dramabeans. Otherwise, welcome! *mild spoilers here and there*
