So LJ, let's be straight, I miss you. I miss posts with actual html. I miss putting more than four pictures together. I miss the commenting system. And since Val used her month-before-the-day-after-her-half-birthday wish to encourage me to post more here, I thought I'd make a proposition to myself. I'm going to try to post once a week! Something fandom related! A random picture I took! Anything! Considering a common way I relax is to work on things in photoshop until they are 80% and then never post them, I think there is a backlog that could help me here. ;) Consistency has never been my strong suit but I am officially challenging myself! GAUNTLET THROWN.

To kick things off, the very first thing I watched after I issued this challenge to myself: Lucky Seven Ep 1! I'm a little behind the times, drama-wise. I mean, not even just three episodes worth here. I still haven't um, started several of the dramas I meant to watch last season (Nazodi, cough cough). But time presses on and so does my screencap folder. To the spam!

Lucky Seven Episode 1

OOPS, it's been so long that I forgot why I don't leave the smaller pictures separate and assume they will align into a square. They don't... unless you make the window really wide. XD I'm going to imagine you're doing that so I don't have go back and fix that immediately. Thank you for your cooperation. ♥♥

Starting off strong Lucky Seven! These are all faces I already know and love, now appearing as a team. :DD

ALREADY SO CUTTING AND AWESOME. (Riisa, I have missed your face!!)

Heeeeeee. I love the glee Nitta had when given the chance to completely show someone up. He was pretty much just going "Stop hitting yourself! Stop hitting yourself :DD" throughout this fight. What a jerk, you are so great. ♥

Tokita Shuntaro: not as simple as he looks! Snap first impression: oh man, he is so Inuyasha. XD Seriously, rough, persistent and with a lot of raw potential is a shounen anime archtype I really enjoy. :D

Danggggg, I loved her introduction. The reverent "Touko-san" and all the looks her subordinates are shooting her and confident face! I'm really interested in how she started running this agency but I also like the idea that she going to be this somewhat aloof figure we only see when she's not too busy to shepherd things. TOUKO-SAN. ♥

Ohhhhhhh, Doumyoji siblings reunited. Y'know before I watched, I completely thought "Yeah, not a big deal, I have seen Jun and Matsushima Nanako together a lot in the subsequent years…" and yet here I am, awash in feelings. SO GREAT. SO GREAT TOGETHER. :DD

Oh Shuntaro, You have a good face. :DD

You too, Nitta.

Ohhhhh, you are pretty. I have missed this profile.

LOL. I thought they did an excellent job of setting up various relationships in the first ep and this is just one of the ones I loved. Junpei-san, kind of thrilled to have a low man on the totem pole. XD

Yes, I am sold already. I don't need to know anything else here. Go. :DD

ATTRACTIVE. Thank you for this plotline, show.

An attractive dork. :)

I like this set-up of Shuntaro as the detective who caaaaares and wants to save the clients.

Nawwwww, because a private detective was his childhood hero! Also, hee, I love how everyone in this show is someone I know. Hi, Tanihara Shosuke, hi! <3

You have a very lovely profile too, Shuntaro.

Ahaha, Asuka's very cold faces towards Junpei were my favorite thing. SO SCORNFUL OF HIS ABILITIES IN ALL FACETS OF LIFE. Gosh, Naka Riisa's face, you are so delightful. ♥

YES. Love you already, boo.

This was such a great character moment, I really love these three as pre-existing team on the ground! It's particularly delightful to me that Nitta is interested in discussing Asuka's love life? :D

Yessssssss. This is something I want. Fearless badass in her towering heels.

Thank you, oh Lucky Seven, for this, my daily shirtless wrestling scene. XD

That they are, Asuka, that they are. But this time, let's just let them work things out with shirtless boxing. :D

Yes, good. Yes, I am pleased this is the place you decided to blow your fancy camera budget. :DD Also, how cool was watching the hit ripple through Jun's back? Very cool.

Heh, dang, I love a good cocky fighter. :D

Oops. :D (Also to note, I love that Nitta wears those baggy, construction worker pants which googling has reveal to be called "nikka-pokka" from the English "knickerbocker". That is an awesome name for some awesome pants!)

Again, so gleeful at the sight of a fight! Nittaaaaa. I'm so excited for your backstory!

Yessssss, please sign me up for Kazue Fukiishi handing everyone their asses. KEEP IT UP.

Nawwwww, you may be reluctant partners but you already have co-ordinating nicknames. SORRY YOU ARE SO CUTE.

Well! I cannot handle either of these faces! Part of the team! Part of her team! ♥

Giving him the stink eye over horticulture? Oh Lucky Seven, you have already given me so much. :DD

Really looking forward to more of your face, Shuntaro! And all of you! :DD

Please don't repost on tumblr and LOL, sorry I am behind and cannot actually discuss the rest of this show with anyone yet!

YAY THEIR FACES!! i have recently resolved to not judge lucky seven for not being............what it isn't, which has made enjoying their faces as they are MUCH more enjoyable. XD oh ridiculous ensemble cast full of excellent people.

touko-san, though, seriously. she's so great. *~* i love their first confrontation and how they read each other as being similar.

ALSO, ALSO, JUN THE PET. JUN THE DOOOOG. it maybe wasn't an intentional reference to kimi wa petto but by george i'm going to take it. XD

i've been posting my thoughts under my lucky seven tag IF you were interested--no pressure whatsoever. i hope you manage to keep up with the caps! their faces are seriously sublime. ♥

Yeah, I don't think I had too many expectations of Lucky Seven beyond it having a lot of faces I like in it and providing me with fight/chase scenes? :D That attitude had been working out well for me!

ALSO, ALSO, JUN THE PET. JUN THE DOOOOG. it maybe wasn't an intentional reference to kimi wa petto but by george i'm going to take it. XD
It doesn't even matter if it was. IT IS GREAT AND I WILL NEVER LET GO OF JUN THE DOG!!

Oh gosh, I read your first post and it was so funny, I kind of thought "WELL, I DON'T NEED TO DO LUCKY SEVEN POSTS ANYMORE. THERE IS ALREADY THIS. :DD" Chat logs are the way to goooooo. ♥ I don't know if I'll keep up with caps for this but it's yet to be seen! I've been distracted by other things at the moment~

i have this problem where i have LOTS of expectations and then am crushed when somehow something manages to not live up to my wildly unrealistic plans for it. XD i'm working on that, though. for example, my expectations on the upcoming aiba and ohno dramas: aibaaaaa. ohnooooo!!!

whenever you get around to watching more, you are welcome to comment--if you want!!--on my posts, however belated it may be. XD and i'll check out your posts if you make them, but no pressure. it really is a fun show. XD

Jun and his face! RIISA BEING AMAZING, I love her so much! NITTA: POSSIBLY MY FAVORITE NON-ASUKA CHARACTER. (MAYBE NOT THOUGH, I MEAN: JUN AND HIS FACE.) Spoiler alert: later the quiet girl wears these amazing pants!! :D :D :D AND THAT FIGHT SCENE WAS SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY COOL. ... What else, oh, this show is just fun, just fun, top! I LIKE IT QUITE A LOT. ♥♥

SPOILER ALERT: THOSE PAAANTS. gosh, this show. i have all sorts of thoughts about it but it's one of those times i really wish i could turn off my brain because it is just so much fun. XD

REALLY FUN! I really love Nitta, I am absolutely sure I will get more attached to Jun's character as we go, but I thought Nitta got more interesting quirks in ep one. PLUS EITA'S FACE. ♥

I'm excited for more of the quiet girl! I already liked that Nitta was comfortable enough to pull off her headphones and get a greeting from her when he came in for the morning. :)

Oh, I was thinking about skipping this drama but seeing you summarise the first ep is giving me second thoughts ^^ Eita faces ftw!

Yeah! Hopefully I wasn't that into watching another detective/procedural drama but I thought they did a nice job in the first episode making it have its own personality and pulling me in! I looooove so much of the cast, so Lucky Seven has that for it! :D I'd say so far it's thoroughly entertaining but I need to watch more to have a further opinion. I got sidetracked catching up on Nazotoki from the last drama season. :P

I'll try to include some further thoughts on the show in a later post! :DD
