Skins Fire (Part I) : Season 7 Episode 1

The episode opens with Effy's eye view of people she's passing by as she walks along a busy business center area. She enters a building swiping her badge to access entry. She boards a lift and as it closes, Effy looks straight with determined eyes.

Effy, at 21, now works for a hedge fund as a receptionist and seems to be having a good life after all those traumas she had way back in high school. However, her duties in the firm were to serve coffee and distribute printouts which is as we know Effy's character sees it as a boring and lifeless job.

One of the senior managers in the office, Victoria, is a little push over and bitchy which Effy now feels not of a threat but a little challenge which will later on spark a conflict between them. Looking back on her in the old Skins, Effy likes thrill and has been an adventure-seeking girl which we can still recognize in this episode.

MOVIES : Rurouni Battousai Live Action (2012)

The live action film for this all-time favorite manga Rurouni Kenshin has been awaited by many and the anticipation of bringing this anime character to real life stirred up avid fans all over the world!

I watched the live action movie on it's last day of screening in Manila last December 9, 2012 and even down to this last day, theaters in SM Megamall crowds with eager audience to get in on time on the best seats. This movie did not let its viewers down by keeping it close to the original manga thus consolidating several episodes of the anime series with a little alteration on the plot summing it up into a whole pack of action and humor!
