Just Watched: Gintama: Mitsuba no hen


A live action drama titled Gintama: Mitsuba no hen. I really am not familiar with the show or if there are other Gintama installments, but I can assure you that the 3 episodes  just saw were really entertaining and surprisingly funny and intense. The story itself is quite predictable but the presentation was fun to watch. Thanks Bel for recommending this drama. Like her, I look forward to the movie! I really am curious now. The ending was abrupt!

Just Watched: Guardian of the Spirit II


Oh.my.god! What a ride! This drama, a continuation from the first season Guardian of the Spirit, is better than the first one! I could not blog it while watching because I was totally invested in this season. As I was with the first season. This saga is too good to be missed. If you are a fan of taiga fantasy, this drama is for you. But really, if you haven’t seen the first season, you MUST watch it before you start on this one. Technically, you can still skip the first season but I feel it sets a tone for this season.

Just Watched: Hirugao


I got drawn into this drama because of my good friend, Maki. Yes, we squee regularly on Saito and she loves spamming me with (illegal) photos of this hawt man! She recently spammed me with Hirugao (the movie) trailers and I knew that it is time to start watching the drama. I heard the movie is independent of the drama but I think it is worth understanding the history of the main OTP. I mean… c’mon, I will do whatever I could to have sultry Saito on my screen. Saito Saito Saito! I hate sharing but he’s worth sharing *wink*. He is juicy like that *giggle*.

Just Watched: Tokyo Tarareba Musume


Sex & the City Japanese style! Except there are only three main ladies in this drama. Tokyo Tarareba Musume was on my radar ever since Bel blogged about it. I love watching dramas with female leads. It’s the different perspective and opinion from women that I fascinated about. Besides, I am biased. I adore my species very much! *laughs*. I completed the drama last week and I just want to say I’m glad I waited until it is done to blog it. Why do you say? The ending was as I expected but the journey to this happy ending was rough.

Currently Watching: Quartet


A story about classical musicians? I am in. A story about their secret lives? I am definitely in! Who doesn’t want to know their dirty little secrets, right? This recently completed drama was off my radar until I see several of my Tlists gushing over Mitsushima Hikari who plays Suzume. I don’t recall seeing her in any of my dramas before. But then again, you can say I’m new to Jdrama watching even though I spent my childhood watching loads of Japanese dramas. The gap between middle school and my current age is too wide. I have since moved on and made a comeback last year.

Just Watched: Samurai Gourmet


WARNING: If you are hungry, do not watch this drama. WARNING: If you are not hungry, do not watch this drama. *laughs* Seriously, I think I have gained 2lbs simply by watching the show. All the foodies… Oh.my.god! And I quote my husband, “Japanese love to romanticize everything, including their food.” Well, it is true BUT my ignorant husband (yes, I called him ignorant all the time *giggles*) fail to consider that the Japanese are very obsessed with food. Whether it is their traditional food or food adapted from other countries, they plate the food so deliciously. I even drool on a simple instant ramen. By the way, it was shoyu style! *licks lips*

Just Watched: Fallen Angel


Oh my goodness, what a thriller gem this drama was! I really don’t get why it received such low ratings. Though the drama is decent, I do love the thrills this show gave me. Fallen Angel made me wanting more and more and more. I completed 9 episodes in a day. Yes, it is a short watch and you can finish it in a day. Because of the pacing, you really want to just get it over with. And trust me your curiosity will not allow you to leave your TV (laptop or tablet).
