Recently, I had an odd moment when I suddenly thought Yuuhi was really hot. What? Prior to that, I’d sort of ignored her; she just wasn’t on my radar. But then *whoosh*–that inexplicable moment. I just realized that she’s stunning in a strange but understated alien-esque way.
So I decided to watch Trafalgar (Cosmos 2010). Some very nice moments. The first meeting between Nelson and Emma, in particular, is such a witty, classic moment:
*Nelson is talking politics with Emma’s husband* Emma: Captain! Won’t you dance with me? Nelson: Lady Hamilton– Emma: Darling, let me borrow Nelson for a bit~ *Pulls Nelson to dance* Perhaps you’re not very good at dancing on land? Nelson: It will be easier than dancing on the waters. *Waltz* Emma: My, you’re a fine dancer! I was almost deceived by your stiffness. Nelson: How audacious of you, in front of your husband. Emma: Oh, he doesn’t mind. Nelson: Interesting. It’s like you’re flaunting us to him. Emma: It doesn’t matter; everyone says we’re a perfect couple. Nelson: Of course. Because you are the perfect couple. Emma: Does it really look like that? Nelson: Yes. Emma: You may be a genius in the art of war, but you’re quite awful at reading people, aren’t you? *Dance ends with Emma smiling, Nelson quizzical*
Scans from the Moon 98 West Side Story programme. I guess they don’t have the rights to release it on DVD but it would have been quite something. I’m especially curious about Juri Sakiho’s Anita and Naruse Kouki’s Action.
