But... if we don't know anything about you, how can we let you join? We look to see if you have an active LJ. If you don't, then please introduce yourself under this post, so we can see that you are a real human being and neither a bot or a person with questionable motives, we'll then be happy to have you. But you need to let yourself be known to us! Tell us about your love for j-drama. Tell us about your favorite actor or writer or director. Tell us how much you want to get involved in fansubbing (hint, hint, hint). But, please, tell us about yourself! Even if you have an active LJ, go ahead and say hello. And please, get involved when we post our episode reviews. Part of the fun in watching is sharing the feels!

(Don't be shy about commenting on earlier posts, either.)

Let's talk Bushimeshi!

I am having such a good time watching Bakumatsu Gurume Bushimeshi!

In particular, I love Banshiro. Sakata Banshiro is such a cinnamon roll! I relate so hard to his lack of interest in social climbing. Even more endearing is how his love for his wife and daughter is so strong that he senses their presence in his life in a real way. My heart breaks a little bit each time his hallucination ends and he realizes that they aren't with him.

Alright then! What about you? What are your impressions? Any favorite scenes so far (episodes 1-3)?

People afraid of spoilers: Don't read the comments.

Episode 1, Bushimeshi

You'll find the sub here. The entry is member-locked, so be sure to ask to join, and please introduce yourself in the sticky post if you don't have an active-ish journal.

Please let us know here if there are any timing or translation problems that we missed.

Also, please tell us what you think of the show. I think this first episode was quite funny. I love all the actors, and I really love the way music is used in the show to highlight comedic effect. I'm not going to say more right now because you all need to watch it and get back to me with your thoughts.
