Currently Watching: Hanbun, Aoi


It’s been a while since I watch daily dramas. I did not miss the craziness at all but I enjoyed the development of plots (for a better or worse) which powered me through the end of the series. When Bel introduces me to Japanese daily drama, I did not hesitate. In my mind, I thought it would be something similar to Korean daily dramas. But as it turns out, despite the series has 156 episodes, each episode is less than 15 minutes! Hearing that I’m even more motivated to invest my time in watching Japanese daily. My only concern is will it get subbed?

Currently Watching: What Did You Eat Yesterday?


Food in a drama is heavenly! Food and Nishijima Hidetoshi in a drama are a match made in heaven! Also, I haven’t seen BL genre drama in a long time. The last one was the Thai’s Project S the Series – which I realized I did not see the fourth and final ones. I don’t think it is on Netflix anymore… too bad. But I am glad I am getting my BL fix with What Did You Eat Yesterday?. I have seen 7 episodes so far and waiting and hoping to catch the next 5 episodes soon. It is still airing by the way and it is anticipated to end in 5 days! I can’t believe all my good shows are ending soon.

Currently Watching: Ima kara Anata wo Kyouhaku Shimasu


I put this drama on hold a while back and Viki finally picked it up. I was not able to watch it immediately back then but now that I am in the mood for drama again, I am going to finish it now. Here is my original review of the drama. Unfortunately, it did not receive a good rating on MDL. Only 7.6/10. I wonder why… I hope to find out soon because I found it funny before. Maybe it loses its steam in the next 4 episodes? *shrugs*

On Hold: Boukyaku no Sachiko


Le sigh. I am once again defeated by subber(s). I started Boukyaku no Sachiko but managed to watch 2 episodes only. I have been waiting for the remaining 10 episodes to be subbed for months but until today, not a single dust appear. It is so upsetting that Japanese dramas do not get enough love as much as Korean and Chinese dramas. I really hope Viki or another subbers would pick this up. I really enjoyed what I saw and would like to see more but sadly… *tear up*.

Just Watched: Demo, Kekkon shitai!

917000120In Viki, this drama special is called Wedding Bells for the Otaku?. I stumbled on it last night and thought why not give it a try. I did not realize it is drama special until it ends. It was only an hour long. While I enjoyed this comedy drama for the most part, lack of physical contact threw me off a bit. I mean this is a Japanese drama and they are quite up front with physical touch like you can see in Taiwanese and Chinese dramas.

Just Watched: Cold Case: Shinjitsu no Tobira 2


If you are a fan of the first Cold Case Japan installment, you don’t want to miss this season 2. The cases featured in this drama continuously to be gripping and thrilling. Few of the cases got on my nerves and I wondered where are the justice. But if you compare this season with the first one, I feel that it is a bit lacking. I don’t see much action from the cast – this season focuses more on the cases. I am not disappointed much because the writing is still solid and the chemistry between the casts remain superb. I just want them more on my screen!

Currently Watching: Dai Renai – Boku wo Wasureru Kimi to


My Japanese girlfriend recommended this drama and I obliged *laughs*. See how easy it is to influence me? Yes, I am that weak especially when I have plenty of days off lately. Dai Renai completed airing on December 14 and I am now waiting for the last episode to be subbed. I can’t wait to see how this drama will unfold. You know why? I stop trusting myself because I made that mistake with The Third Charm. But I feel my gut might be right this time. I think. Ask me when I have completed it.
