"Kaichou wa Maid-sama" 20

Pretty funny episode with side characters gettting the spotlight.  Vice president Yukimura gets his friends to help with his relationship with his little sister.  Little sis has a thing about being a princess, but big bro is not "princely" enough.  Usui is forced to be "the prince" by Misaki.  I like the friendship between Kanou (ex-misogynist/ hypnotist) and Yukimura.  Also Aoi (net idol trap) shoots a PV in the park with the help of the 3 idiots and Yukimura and Kanou.  All the supporting players of the show are quite entertaining on their own.  From the preview, looks like Usui may get a rival for Misaki!

"Hanasakeru Seishonen" play?!

Wow,  this is really being done in Tokyo from end of September to beginning of October, according to ANN.  The pic of Kajika is pretty dead on.  The guys...I dunno...especially Eugene.  I think that's Eugene.  Here is the official website.

"Star Wars" finally to be on Blu-ray

According to engadget, all six movies will be released on Blu-ray in 2011!  I see me buying the whole set again.  Wait a minute, I only have 4 through 6 at home.  I guess there is no excuse now for not getting 1 through 3.  Of course, these are the "special editions" with the Lucas add-ons, but hey, it's Blu-ray!  Here is the clip posted on engadget of a deleted scene from "Return of the Jedi" to be available on the new discs.

Utada Hikaru to take a break

Hikki is taking a break from her music career starting in 2011 after releasing her second single collection in late 2010 which will include 4 to 5 new songs.  Hoping it's 5!  Sad to hear we won't be hearing new music after this for a while, but I'm glad she is taking time out to do what she wants for herself as a person.  Here is a link to an English translation of her announcement on her blog.
