This, you have to admit, is pretty darn good-looking.

Psyop is doing a series — in all honesty, it’s only three webisodes — as prequel to a video game, and decided to do the animation by hand with some 3D enhancements.

Harper’s Bazaar China loves to celebrate with Faye Wong and photographer Chen Man, this is why both of them grace the cover of this year’s anniversary Harper’s Bazaar edition celebrating their 26th year. They celebrated their 25th year the same way.

So being the lover of photography that I am, I went around and look them all up — including last years photos. You can also check this Faye/HB photoshoot.

And as you can see, I have instantly fallen deeply in love with photographer Chen Man’s work. And I’ve already ordered her book Chen Man: Works 2003-2010, and added her tag xD so you can maybe expect more Chen Man postings in the future.

I believe that to change the future we cannot rely on the individual, but rather a collective force. Together we can change an individual’s way of life, as well as change the world.

Chen Man on the Future

If you were hurt by her very painfully, please, thank her well-intentioned torture. If you feel like you have wronged her, please, thank her gracious tears that flowed. Before we meet and fall in love, it’s all because of her that you’ve matured.

If you feel lonesome right now, please, thank this beautiful intermission. If you are still acting wrongly in love, please, be thankful for not finding me yet. It’s only after we finish walking through all the winding roads that we can finally know what love really is.

My Love.

If it’s celebrated successfully that I’m worth obtaining, please, thank that I was once let go. If I’m admired for my strong yet gentle nature, please, thank that precious hurtful wound. After we meet and fall in love, all regrets will turn into rewards. When we finally find one another in a tight embrace, all the distress and hardship will turn into the sweetest ending, so just let us patiently wander because love will come for sure – at the right moment.

Hebe to be Assimilated not Consumed~

I wanted to use “Yu Aoi Double Face-ing for TBS/WOWOW Infernal Affairs Jdrama” but I thought it was a little extra too long with the information.

So I was checking IMDb, and there was a new credit I didn’t know about, and since I’m not subscribed to anyone’s feed on Japanese entertainment news, and my sources haven’t been as active as they used to, I had no idea what it was about.

The show titled Double Face both Teruyuki Kagawa and Hidetoshi Nishijima will be airing both in TBS and WOWOW — one subtitled Sennyu Sousa Hen (Undercover Investigation, TBS) and the other Gisou Keisatsu Hen (Police Disguise, WOWOW) — with Nishijima starring on the TBS version while Kagawa on WOWOW’s. The gig is that it is inspired by Hong Kong’s Infernal Affairs, and will have you watching both as they are the same story but from different perspectives.

So maybe if you’ve seen the movie, it won’t be all that interesting — but from the broadcasting POV, it’s an interesting project. I don’t think it’s been done before, has it?

Yu-chan will play a role in the WOWOW version, while Wakui Emi and Atsushi Ito will have roles in both versions, and Kadono Takuzo will play a role in the TBS version.

I wonder if anyone is planning to fansub…
