2020y04m04d_112356344

My good friend wondered why am I attracted to unique dramas. Honestly, I am not sure. I just find it fascinating. Japanese dramas always have a way of turning something mediocre or unique to something interesting. Rental Nan mo Shinai Hito is the unique drama I am talking about. What I love about it is the simplicity of the show. Based on a true story and life of Morimoto Shouji, this drama explores his daily life as Mr. Rental with his clients.

So, our first question came from Mari. What is your favorite remake? Tell us what is yours in the comment below.  Once again, we are limited to Asian shows only but I welcome others too – blow our mind, please! Here is our pick for the best remake:

Just Watched: Bitter Blood

KpQVnf

Right after Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Doko Made mo ended, I got extremely depressed. It was hard to watch my other dramas because Koi wa Tsuzuku was so good and it had the perfect romance element that I needed. Of course, I have to say Mone Kamishiraishi and Sato Takeru were impressive! Obviously, my withdrawal on Sato brought me to this drama, Bitter Blood. I knew I just had to watch it to fill the void. Thankfully, I was able to find the subbed for this drama. Though I am 6 years behind, I am glad I finally get to watch the show people have been raving for.

Currently Watching: Hajimete Koi wo Shita Hi ni Yomu Hanashi

hajikoiMy girlfriend, MS, has been pestering me to watch Hajimete Koi wo Shita Hi ni Yomu Hanashi ever since we finished Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Doko Made mo. I was distraught when the show ended. The cheese and cuteness were too good. MS suggested this drama and knew I would be destroyed by Yuri Yuri! Though this show doesn’t have much cuteness, the romance factor is definitely there! I blushed too many times… “She’s mine!” Why can’t someone say that to me, too? *giggles*

Just Watched: Boku Dake ga 17-sai no Sekai de

This drama was never on my list to watch. Ayesha recommended it and she pretty much convinced me because it is only 8 episodes long and less than 35 minutes per episode. So, why not add another drama to my fat watch list, right? Fortunately, I was able to finish it in one day. The unfortunate part is that I did not expect to shed tears. When I started it, I knew it is impossible for me not to cry. I also had the inclination that the ending will be nostalgic and beautiful. Sure enough, it was beautiful… and rather apt that we are in cherry blossom season.

On Hold: Natsuzora

lJAkJf

I started Natsuzora when I was in Beijing last October. It was a spur of the moment because, at the time, I only had access to Plex. Viki and Netflix were not available unless I turn on my VPN. I was so excited to start this one even though it did not get a good rating on MyDramaList. Also excited that it is my third Japanese daily drama after Hanbun, Aoi and Manpuku. I was ready for another 156 episode drama challenge. But unfortunately, the subber has stopped subbing it due to her other commitment. I was only able to watch up to week 17 which approximately episode 102.
