a couple more entries up at robot clones. only fifty thousand to go until i’m caught up… (T_T) also, i set up a seperate blog for my translation of the episode previews of fuurinkazan, the NHK taiga drama in which Gackt will be starring. he plays Uesugi Kenshin (wikipedia entry), who, coincidentally, shares a birthday with my brother. the drama actually follows the character of yamamoto kansuke, a strategist for Takeda Shingen, Uesugi’s chief rival, so gaku probably won’t show until later, but i’m 100% for historical dramas, and NHK’s annual year-long historical dramas are basically awesome. what i need? is some japanese satellite TV. i would watch this thing, subtitles or no. as an aside, fuurinkazan comes from takeda-sama’s banner, which in turn quotes sun tzu’s art of war.
