Yowza is right! Ohmy! I may just combust at the thought of it... Phwoar.

Hey, good news, I got Suna no Utsuwa to play finally, and am partly through it. I find the piano guy (Eiryo, is it?) a bit annoying, and, well, there's an old MST3K quote that springs to mind: "Haven't they ever heard of editing for time compression?" However, Ken = gorgeous. Alas, I can't framegrab that one, either, but I'm basking in the gorgeousness. :-)

Seriously. Apparently Ken will be playing the adversary general, Cao Cao, to Chow Yun Fat's victorious general Liu Bei (which, I think, makes the selection of a Japanese actor for the role even more interesting).

Cool! Am glad you got it to work! Yes, isn't Eiryo annoying as hell? Not to mention, the Stupidest Murderer Ever? I have to wonder if they figured the actor selection and the emphasis on his angst would make the audience more sympathetic towards him; that didn't work for me. In the book, Eiryo is more of an uncomplicated prick, plus as I related, in the book you don't know who did it until much later. So you don't get the endless angsting, and Eiryo doesn't seem *as* stupid because you don't spend as much time looking at his actions in detail.

I got really, really good at FFing through Eiryo's bits. Ken's bits more than make up for it. :) (Pity about the screencapping! Aargh! The official site has some official caps, but not nearly enough.)
