“I think you’re ill, Jie-jie,” Bai Qian said, after forcing Wanming, who insisted that she could walk to town, to sit down on the large bamboo chair and feeling her forehead. “You might have caught a cold the other day when you went out --”

Crisis: Special Investigation Squad Episode 2 (Recap)

Trotwood: I am very proud of myself because the draft of this recap is 976 words shorter than the last draft. I may be able to cut even more here. Panda told me not to worry about it, but I do want people to read these recaps, which means I can't always be the most long winded person in this blog. Opening with a random picture of Hidetoshi Nishijima would get me to read anything, but I know it won't work with most people.
Panda: The fact that you actually calculated and know the difference in word count between recap 1 and this just takes me out😃😃😃😃. Besides I am 100% sure you are not the only one who would follow Nishijima into fire.

“You can’t be serious”, Bai Qian murmured, throwing her head as far back as she could to squint up at the high mountain before her. The peak was shrouded in a layer of gloomy looking clouds, and the steep, sleek rock seemed determined to deter people from scaling its surface.

Love & Destiny 三生三世宸汐缘 - Episode 1 (Recap)

kakashi: *cracks knuckles* Let's do this, friends! The 3310 universe is inviting us to gobble up the "sister"-story of our beloved Three Lives Three Worlds We're Still Writing Fanfic Years After it's Done and I feel obligated to do my very best to love it. They will drop two episodes Monday to Friday (10 a week. Yes. 10. A. Week), which is a crazy schedule so just forget right away that I will ever be able to keep up. I have a life. 
JoAnne: I will at least drop in. If you recall, I was the only one here who liked Peaches but managed to keep her sanity. I may have to serve as that moderating influence again.
Bunny: I'll just go ahead and take responsibility for bullying a certain somebody into recapping this ginormous 60-episode beastly thing ((RIP kakashi's life)). Also, it's my first time recapping so please be gentle!!! *curtsies*

kakashi: Summer time! Almost holiday time! Can't wait to go hiking. I'm already hiking in my mind.
Trotwood: I'm scheduled to only do one hike this summer because I have piriformis syndrome; it's literally a pain in my ass. No really. Look it up.😖 Is it still hot there though?
Not hot and ouch about your ass pain, I can relate, I've had the occasional sciatic nerve pain. It will be hot again at the end of the week but not as hot as before.
Panda: WT..? Blogger ate my previous post 😨😕😕 Sigh. I am behind on everything but I also want to watch everything! What's a girl got to do to have 60 hours in a day? Need to continue with Designated President Jeonhaaaa and SearchWWW. Need to start Chang'an, Hotel De Luna, Watcher, Love and Destiny (not hearing good things about ep 1 though, but it's Nini and Chang Chen!!!!), NEF (heavily rumored to start tonight), GoGo squid, and Young Bloods (when subbed). So yes, I do need 60 hour days as you can see.

As some of her magical powers had returned, Bai Qian wasted no time in searching for immortal energies within the cottage. Though grateful for Wanming’s kindness, she could not help but be cautious after what they’d all been through. There was indeed no immortal energies of any kind around. After another few sleepless nights which she spent sitting beside Pojing and looking over her shoulders, Bai Qian concluded that nothing was going to happen and for the first time in a while, they had met with some luck.

Kinou Nani Tabeta/What Did You Eat Yesterday? - Episode 12 Finale (Recap)

I know I’ve said this before, but I really love this show. I can see myself doing a full marathon this coming winter, watching while wrapped up in a blanket and eating hot muffins or scones trying to replicate the warmth and joy that I’ve found in this series. Also, as I've said to Panda, I am thankful to this show for giving Hidetoshi Nishijima a role where he is allowed to smile. We probably won't see this for another two years.

I am extraordinarily thankful to kinounaniresource for not only her wonderful subs, but absolutely topnotch commentary and unfailingly thoughtful and kind responses to her readers. Please look her up on Tumblr if you want to watch the show, get news about show, or read translations of interviews and articles related to show. There has been some controversy about sites using her subs and her judgment about other subs, but I've ignored all of that.

Crisis: Special Investigation Squad - Episode 1 (Recap)

Image
I watched Crisis: Special Investigative Squad in the summer of July 2017 the week after it had finished airing in Japan. I watched all ten episodes in one week and wanted more, and it did a good job helping me fill the void that Secret Forest had left. It was on my radar because I am a fan of Shun Oguri, but the show also made me an immediate fan of Hidetoshi Nishijima as many of you who read this blog already know.
Hidetoshi Nishijima is now forever known as Trot's bae😀. It's so funny, but I didn't know this was where your love affair started. I started this cos of Shuuuuun! But I also came away with a huge liking for the entire team especially TB.
It’s written by an award winning author, Kazuki Kaneshiro, who also wrote Border (starring Shun) and Caution, Hazardous Wife (in which Hidetoshi Nishijima plays the husband). Both of these shows are on my list of shows I’d like to recap for the blog. I had no idea that they were all written by the same person.
Are you for real …

Bai Qian woke up to a prickling pain on her forehead. Though when she opened her eyes, she quickly realized that it was not exactly a headache that had been bothering her. The little sprite had been tugging on her hair with both hands, its orb-like eyes were so close to her face that they looked five times their normal size.
