Paquita Maria Sanchez (hocus_schmocus) Whew. I love Mishima, but it looks like I will have to be a humble partial completist. All the same, great choice.

Dan's | 6 comments Just a short Q: asince I ain't initiated yet in the works of Mishima
I'ld like to know if
Forbidden colors
is in any way connected either to the film "good Christmas Mr.Laurence"
or the song with the same title, that was released alongside with the film a bit later on ...

PS: I could easily provide the lyrics, for ya to make a comparison
