I'M BACK! / watch the hana kimi SP/ Maou soundtrack

toma-ism #62:
i see flaws in his beauty,
but i see beauty in his flaws.
[sorta taken from an american express commercial.
a director said he finds beauty in flaws and vice versa.]

kate des.

it's so great to be back!! =)
ARIGATOU to everyone that kept coming here even though there were no updates!
and i've got 2 new public followers!! awesome. thanks for following this blog, Aya-san and i luv_kofi_n_sushi! i wonder if there R many other followers, just that they're anonymous...

u know, toma and the internet are both part of my lifeblood, so the past week has been absolutely awful, i had no energy to go online or do anything toma-related. last week was hell, but thank goodness for my angelic older sister, she really made things better. this is really how i felt last week:
and during 1 particularly bad night when i was really out of it cuz of medication, i couldn't keep the secret any longer, i told her about my huge crush on toma! haha. obviously, i didn't want to tell her cuz i don't want anybody else or my family to know about this and think i'm crazy. but then that night, i was talking about dramas with her, and i showed her the opening theme for Maou. then i showed her that cool MV about Maou, cuz it's just so good and even if she doesn't wanna watch the drama, i wanted to show her why i liked it. and she said "that guy's cute!" and after that, i just couldn't stop myself!! hahaha! she completely agrees that he is the most handsome guy ever and so naturally cute and charming!! but even i am a little shocked at how toma's got such a huge affect on her already, and she only just found out about him right then! lol. that's toma for you. he's got that affect on most people. she will definitely watch hana kimi, maou, and then h&c, in that order. AND thanks to me showing her all kinds of cute toma video clips and pics & gushing about him together, i felt a lot better right then! ~_~ Ahhhh~ the amazing healing powers of toma love~!

on with this post. some ppl have asked where to watch the hana kimi special. well, u can watch it streaming here:

OR u can dload and watch it in high quality here (u gotta register at first):
[at the end of the 01 August 2007 post. MANY THANKS TO SARS Fansubs!! ~_~ ]

there R probably other places like youtube or veoh that might also have it...
i'm gonna start downloading the parts to watch later...but 4 some reason i'm afraid i'll be disappointed, though seems like fans that have watched all liked it....
i need 2 finish Maou first, though! definitely!

if u R like me, a person that pays a lot of attention to the background music used in dramas/movies, then you'll like this! Maou's OST! at first i thought the BGM was just ok, but as i watched more, there were more and more BGM's that i liked! =) one of my favs is the LIVE/EVIL and Requiem. and Grace!!

u can buy it here:

or listen to some tracks here:
[hey!! check out the cute toma GREASE promotional pics at the top of the page!! =P ]

or dload it here (again, have to be registered at jdramas).

i thought it was really cool how all the tracks' titles are in eng. and spelled in that chaotic way! and they all sound cool. well, they used way too many demonic names, though. haha. though i'm catholic, i still didn't know what a lot of the names mean, so i looked them up to share with every1 in case u were curious like me.
