Okay, I've been kind of lost in the Torchwood haze of late. So I sort of innocently clicked over to [profile] radiofreebanri to check out the latest chapter in the Saiyuki legacy and !!!!

It completely kills the Six Degrees Meme I wrote for the Nii to Hatori request, but who the heck cares?! This chapter was the Awesome Biscuit smothered in Awesome Gravy.

Considering he goes everywhere with Nii, I found it kind of hard to find appropriate pictures of Bunny-sama.

Anyway, below the cut are four icons of the mysterious, possibly evil stuffed bunny.

I'm not really at my best today with the icon-ing. My apartment is currently so cold that I can't really move my fingers about the Photoshop all that skillfully.

In between studying for my upcoming finals, I caught up on the Saiyuki Reload mangas. And HOMG the Hazel arc!!

The anime’s version of this arc had left me under whelmed so I wasn’t exactly itching to read about it. But little did I know that Minekura had a different story in mind for this storyline. Certain elements remain the same, but there are key differences such as the attack on Goku and the more blatant involvement of Ukoku that made my fannish heart dance with delight.

Under the cut is my general flail, theorizing, and squeeage over the events and most importantly over the ever interesting Nii/Ukoku.

WARNING: Ahead is quite possibly loose-limbed, loose-brained rambling from someone who just recently watched Saiyuki Reload Burial OAV Episode 1.

For those who haven't seen or read the anime/manga Saiyuki, it's basically a re-imagined take on the "Journey to the West" myth. And by re-imagined I mean REALLY re-imagined. How else were we going to get a character quite so frustrating and endlessly interesting like Nii Jianyi?

When you first meet Dr. Nii Jianyi, he’s comes off as a little…kooky. He’s one of the head scientists working on the resurrection of Gyuuma (so he's technically on the enemy team), but seems to spend most of his time taunting his colleagues and inventing random things with which to mess with the Sanzo Party. What will probably make most people think Nii isn’t firing with all rockets is his appearance. Usually disheveled and slovenly, he shuffles around in a lab coat and bunny slippers. To match the slippers, he also has a bunny plushie that he carries around with him at all times and even talks to it like it’s alive. And when he’s feeling particularly creepy, he talks THROUGH it like it’s his mouthpiece.

But beneath this supposed odd behavior is an evil genius. Whether or not he’s a crazy evil genius is still up for debate. But he’s definitely perceptive, calculating, manipulative and oh so much fun to watch. He didn’t seem a very important player in the overall story arc and mainly kept to the sidelines, throwing out those acerbic oneliners that always made those around him gnash their teeth in frustration and anger as he always intends. He spoke a lot in riddles and generally seemed to enjoy just annoying people which is always a character trait I seem to like in the stories I read.

But then it was revealed who Nii used to be and my interest in the character went tenfold.
