Convolutions of an Evil Mind
Lesson of the day....
You do not want to piss off Kurama.

Seriously. This is a really, really BAD THING. Make Kurama sufficiently mad, and you could end up praying and begging for death. Just ask the elder Toguro brother. Oops, you can't ask him because he's trapped in eternal nightmares by this vampiric tree, having his life sucked away but forever unable to die. ::wince::

Last night, I watched the most recent Yu Yu Hakusho DVD, in which Kurama challenges this bratty kid called the Game King (I think). Basically, it boils down to this -- the person who loses the game, dies. Kurama, all too aware of the consequences if Sensui is not stopped, is determined to win at all costs. While they play this Tetris-like game, Kurama deliberately and cold-bloodedly sets out to rattle his young, naive opponent by telling the boy the brutal truth about the game they're playing and the stakes of that game. The strategy works -- Kurama (and his side) wins and the kid dies. However, Kurama is not a happy camper.

So when the elder Toguro shows up to challenge them in the most maliciously obnoxious way possible, Kurama makes him pay big time. Yuusuke is shocked by Kurama's ruthlessness, but Hiei
isn't. Early in the series, didn't Hiei say that Kurama was the last person he wanted to cross or anger (or something to that effect)? Kurama even manages to impress Sensui, which is saying something.

I watched those episodes several times. I just love it when my favorite characters go into total kick-ass mode. ^_^

Current Mood: amused amused

Hee hee, I know what you mean about fave characters being bad asses. Watching Hajime no Ippo and seriously cheering my lungs out at every match. ^__^ (Go Ippo!)

But actually, I dropped in to let you know that Zack is appearing in FFVII: Before Crisis! There's a lovely new pic of him on this FFVII:BC billboard in Japan. You can see it here: http://mokkori67.free.fr/20040705ff7bc.jpg

Heheh, even if you're tired of hearing it... COI ganbatte! ^__^

YESYESYESYES! You have finally seen the glory of YYH!

*ardent Kurama fan*

... and Kurama is a very split personality character, too, even in the manga.
He's aware of his own duality - the Kurama that you usually see is his more 'human' side, but boy, when you violate anything in the sancitiy of his heart .... :3

*wuvles Kurama*

.... erm. I'm the one you convinced with COI to buy a PS and FF7. :D
Long time no see. I lurk often about the internet now ... and just wanted to check your blog out today<3.

I predict that you will start writing YuYuHakusho fanfics! *gets smacked by hydra tails* ...... o_0;;;;

.... seriously, I can see you writing Kurama-centric fics, and while I am utterly burnt out on Kurama/Hiei romance/relationship fics, you'd pull it off quite well. Have you seen the movies yet? I have both of them on one VHS. >.>

Must ... contaminate ... hydra ... braiiiiiin.

Heh! I've been a YYH fan for a long time, and YYH fanfics were some of my earliest introductions to yaoi (WhiteCat's, among others).

I bought my first PS just to play FF7, too.

And I can't wait for FF7: AC!

Guilty as charged.
YYH was the first introduction I had to yaoi - (I can even tell you which fic an d author. sadly, I think that fic's no longer on the net - thank goodness for diskettes?)

I dare you to play Shadow Hearts (also on PS2) since it also has a psychotic dual-natured main chara bishie. :D
Especially, with Shadow Hearts 2 coming out approx Sept. 1- I know there's a chain store in USA that's offering to give you SH for FREE if you preorder Shadow Hearts 2. XD

It's also as crack full of humour as Ranma 1/2 - except, where it starts getting stale/flat in Ranma 1/2, it DOESN'T in Shadow Hearts. That's what I'm looking forward to rather than FF7:AC - because I know it's coming over, while there's little to no coverage on it when it was at E3. ;_;

I almost cried because I missed that episode. I'd been waiting for months. :(

Hey, nice to see another YuGiOh and FF7 fan. I thought I was the only one who somehow liked both. *shrugs*
