Hakkai: Don’t be worried guys. We drove all the night, so we reached a town early than expected. We just make check in in an hotel. After a light dinner we all are thinking to take a little nap.It’s strange but assassins always attack in the early morning when we are particular violent.

Sanzo: I have a faint memory of this attacks… but i remember their defeat.

When I hear the song Stars by Grace Potter And The Nocturnals, the “I can’t look at the stars” part reminds me of Revolutionary Girl Utena. Stars probably remind Utena too much of Akio and that room where Akio would always show Utena the stars.

Just watched Reeve Carney’s Love Me Chase Me music video, and it was so very Dorian Gray-like. <3

I’m really happy with Penny Dreadful’s portrayal of Dorian Gray. Firstly, I’d like to say that I really like the physical appearance of the actor they chose. With Dorian, it’s especially important that the actor looks the part: young, delicate, seemingly ingenuous, and…

Wow, I’m surprised someone else knows who Bosie was! I think Oscar Wilde met Bosie after creating Dorian Gray. It’s hard to believe Dorian wasn’t based off of the guy! Luckily Penny Dreadful’s Dorian seems to be much nicer than Bosie… so far.

I’m really happy with Penny Dreadful’s portrayal of Dorian Gray. Firstly, I’d like to say that I really like the physical appearance of the actor they chose. With Dorian, it’s especially important that the actor looks the part: young, delicate, seemingly ingenuous, and unbelievably beautiful. I think Carney was a rather nice choice for this. His features are almost exactly like what I had imagined in the novel. My only complaint is, as with a lot of actors who have played this character in the past, why doesn’t he have curly blonde hair and blue eyes? The novel mentioned what he looked like, but the movie and tv show creators don’t seem to pay any mind. They could’ve had the actor wear contacts and dye his hair. But I must say I’ve grown fond of Dorian’s hair and eyes in this series, so it doesn’t bother me as much as I’d expect. Perhaps his great job at acting the part of Dorian made up for any inaccuracies. Penny Dreadful portrays Dorian outstandingly: Pansexual (or at least bisexual), hedonist, super wealthy, insanely charming, with a dark side. He doesn’t seem as self-obsessed as the original, at least not from what I could tell. It seems to me that he loves Vanessa for her, and not simply for her beauty, which was different from the case of Sibyl in the novel. He also seems to be kinder than the Dorian in the novel, and unless I missed something, he has not murdered anyone yet. (RIP Basil from the novel)
