Hello! Hot Gimmick kept from attending one of my morning classes since I spent all night finishing it. ^_^;;; So as homage to the manga, I made 5 wallpapers (and I'll make more if I felt like it, lol!) here in my blog. Enjoy and comments when taking!

Subject:Hello. Quick Question.
Posted by:olgasan.
Time:2:32 pm.
Hello all.
I'm new here. :D
(I hope I'm doing this right, and sorry if not. ^^;)
I've read online the manga, up until chap.47, and I just can not wait any more,
I really want to know how it has ended.
A friend of mine told me there are no happy endings in those kinds of manga, but I really hope for
a good ending here (a good ending for me is one when Hatsumi and Ryuki together and happy).

(Oh.and sorry for the english. ^^;)

I'm new to the Hot Gimmick lj, not new to Hot Gimmick. Thought I'd make a post introducing myself and giving a bit of my opinion on the manga ending. Though I enjoyed Hot Gimmick immensely I was disappointed with the ending. I felt Hatsumi should not have chosen any of her suitors.
cut for possible spoilers. For those that have yet to read entire seriesCollapse )

Welcome to Suzuran Gakuen, a Japanese public high school! Sitting on the edge of Shibuya, the academy is nestled in the suburbs next to the famous bustling shopping districts. Recently, a new journaling system took the students (and even some of the staff) by a storm, becoming an integral part of their lives.

How will its vast array of unusual students cope with the growing pressure with their peers, education, and futures as they reach the turning points of their lives?

Suzuran Academy is a multi-anime high school AU roleplay. It's brand new, and we're in need of both students and teachers. The RP will start as soon as we have enough members!

Subject:Hot Gimmick Swap?
Posted by:love_potion9.
Time:10:22 pm.
Hey guys! So, Hot Gimmick has been over for a while, and that's sad. But I've been re-reading the series this past week (a friend recently borrowed them all and I just got them back) and I was thinking...it might be fun to do a Hot Gimmick swap?

It's been done in the Paradise Kiss community parakiss at least twice, and it's always been fun. Basically what happens is: everyone picks a character, gets assigned to someone who picked a different character, and then they mail each other small packages of little things that the character would use/want.

For example, last year in the Paradise Kiss swap, I got paired up with the lovely Meredith _secretpassion_ . She picked Arashi and I picked Miwako. I sent her some rock type things Arashi would like (a note book, some hair gel, safety pins, hair dye...etc) and she sent me all sorts of cutesy Miwako things (nail polish, lipgloss, an ADORABLE totebag I still use...etc).

Anddd I just remembered I had pictures of what she sent me on facebook!

There were also money levels for people who could afford to buy more/less, that way everyone could participate!

Anyway, it's lots and lots of fun. Anybody interested?

Subject:Ficpost! The Life Aquatic, Chapter 1
Posted by:hundredacresky.
Time:8:11 pm.
Hey everybody!  Long time HG fan here, first time poster, utterly disappointed in the lack of HG fanfic.  I think it comes with the genre, seeing how HG did drama and romance so brilliantly, it never left you lacking. 

Well, until the ending.  Because even brilliant drama and romance doesn't always satisfy every fan, especially if its mostly hoarded on another Ship.  And...cue the ravaging of fanfic-related comms, but like I said before:  utterly disparaging.  So, if you want something done (done right is another matter), you just have to do it yourself, right? XD

The Life Aquatic
Rating: PG 
Genre:  Drama/Romance/General
Pairings: Shinogu/Hatsumi, Kazama/Akane.
Summary: Sometimes, the unraveling looks different from this side of the aquarium.  Kazama and Shinogu, on falling in love adjacently.

Part 1:  A Suitably CD-Sequined Start

R&R is the true maker of chapter babies and, incidentally, my undying love. ♥ Nice to meet you!

I was just listening to a song by "She wants revenge" called Tear You Apart [ link to youtube.com video ]

The song is fairly dark and somewhat graphic. PG-13ish.

In a really really dysfunctional way it made me think of Ryoki's feelings toward Hatsumi during the first stages of their relationship. Confused, frustrated, a touch angry, demanding, and fairly needy.

lyricsCollapse )

I was wondering if there are any other songs that aren't "love sunshine happiness" that any one of you found that made you think of the series.

So a new member to the Hot Gimmick community and I figured I'd make a quick post. I saw earlier that someone had asked about followup titles and underneath in the replies someone had given them a website address for a scanlation site. (Lol I bet it would help if I could remember names right? SRRY) Anyway, just was wondering what some other good scanlation (translation:English please) sites would be?

I went out and bought the Hot Gimmick S ending...I liked it and was happy that Shinogu got his happy ending as well but the ending of that made me sad for him at the same time.*Spoiler here* Merely because Hatsumi says she'll, "grow" to reciprocate the feelings behind the ring...I guess I can understand growing to love a person but it still made me feel as if Shinogu was getting the cruddy end. Probably just me though. Overall I liked it though (and I agree Shinogu is a hottie, lol, for a drawing).

Hey, so I'm new here, and in love with Hot Gimmick. So, anyway, I've noticed tht there seems to be a lot of confusion as what the S in Hot gimmick S stands for, and why Hatsumi and Ryoki broke up may be spiolerish, so its behind acutCollapse )

Has anyone here cosplayed Hatsumi?
I'd really like to, but I'm not sure what to wear to make it recognizable.

I know someone requested this a long time ago... but does anyone have the Hot Gimmick Drama CD that they could upload? I've been reading the manga forever and thought it would be awesome to hear the characters' voices.
