In 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.
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!
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.
I knew I wanted to watch Takane no Hana aka Born to be a Flower after I saw the trailer. It was dark, mysterious and interesting. Since Ishihara Satomi is the main lead, I knew immediately that it is a must watch drama. I loved all her dramas and I expect nothing less of of her performance in here. Unfortunately, I feel like this is not her best roll and she should have not taken it in a first place. I get it if she wants to challenge herself. This is a toughest roll for her. It is not easy to play two different characters – the dedicated Momo and the casual Momo.
I needed something silly to watch and Bel suggested 1 Pound no Fukuin when she stayed over at my house last weekend. The first episode got me laughing my butt out. I mean… a boxer fell in love with a nun? How silly is that?! And then to watch Kame three quarter naked all the time? Juicy juicy juicy! He is super skinny though but very fit! But the best part of this drama? Fun and entertaining! I have never laughed so hard watching a drama lately.
So I needed a romance after I completed A Love So Beautiful. I stumbled on Tatta Hitotsu no Koi on plex and thought of giving it a try. It’s Kame and Ayase’s 2006 drama. It is so old but for some reason, old school romance drama is so lovely and sweet. Unlike today some dramas try to focus on physical romance. I mean it’s not a bad thing but unspoken romance gives you a deeper crush which will make your heart palpitating faster and faster. With only 10 episodes long, I completed in a day. Thanks, jet lag! I owe you again!
So I caught up with Mr. Sunshine (review to come soon) and was shocked by the ending and immediately felt I need something light and fluffy to cheer myself up. I started Switched with a mind that it would be fluffy and cute. Well, God dang it was I wrong! This drama, only 6 episodes long, but oh man… it is packed with twisted plots! Seriously, I did not expect a high school drama to be this complicated! Currently on the last episode, I am hopeful for some happy ending. Some!
