Just Watched: Mood Indigo

mood-indigo-backdrop

Well, I completed The Novelist and knew immediately I have to watch Mood Indigo. Rio is back as the main lead but Kuzumi is now the second lead. This time, the story focused on Rio and his editor, Kido. If you enjoyed the first installment, you will enjoy this one, too. Also 6 episodes long, this drama is available on Viki. I am quite surprised that there is a continuation of the previous drama but I am happy that I get to know the end of it.

Just Watched: The Novelist

Okay, I am sorry I had to use the alternative name of this drama as my post heading. If I use the original name, Pornographer, it might attract unusual traffic. I do not want… that. But, being that The Novelist is a BL drama, I expect that this show will have a lot of kisses and skinship. You know, like Until We Meet Again. So as you can imagine, I started this drama with an expectation of romance and sex but what I did not expect is that this drama is phenomenal. I wonder why Bel stopped me from watching it? *rubs chin*

Currently Watching: Nee Sensei, Shiranai No?

ogp

With plenty of time in hand, I can afford to start watching more and more dramas. I decided to add Nee Sensei, Shiranai No? to my watch last night. The show is only 6 episodes long and with each episode less than 30 minutes long, I knew I could finish it in no time. 3 episodes in and 3 more to go. This manga-adapted show is cute but I feel so bored. The story is nicely paced but at times, I found myself cringing for the female lead. I want so badly to get into the screen and tell her… it is okay to be shy but please, not TOO shy!

Currently Watching: Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Doko Made mo

Yeah, it is a mouthful to say the title but you just have to say it anyway. Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Doko Made mo. How do you feel? Yeah, it can be tough for some people. Me too! However, the drama is not as complicated as the drama. In fact, this rom-com is so much more and what I needed. February was a rough month and I am still not ready to share it but I will when the time is right. Now, going back to this drama… the lead story reminded me so much of the Mischievous Kiss series! And you know how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cold male lead, and bubbly female lead! Only the Japanese could do this well…

Just Watched: Aku no Hado

While I was watching One Page Love, I got curious if Yuki has new dramas that I missed. I saw Aku no Hado on his drama list. It’s a dark, serial killer drama genre with him as the main lead. I couldn’t believe my eyes and asked Bel to put it up on Plex. The fact that it is produced by WOWOW, I knew immediately it’s going to be a great watch! Bonus point: 5 episodes at only 26 minutes long per episode!

Just Watched: One Page Love

I needed a mindless drama and found One Page Love as my new drama victim. This mini drama is so cute. I was drawn to it mainly because of Furukawa Yuki. You know me, I am a sucker for a handsome baby-faced Yuki. I have been his fan since Mischievous Kiss series. So clearly I am bias and love this drama so much! Plus, with only 6 episodes long, it is a breeze watching Akira zip through from one man to another. Oh hey, she is not a player but she is a magnet! Her sweetness made these men want to love and protect her.

Just Watched: Banjo no Himawari

Yeap, you guessed it right! I am on my Japanese drama roll! This sudden free time allows me to catch up on the dramas I missed this past summer. After watching two feel-good dramas, I decided to go back to one of my favorite genres in Japanese dramas. Mystery and crime. I selected Banjo no Himawari not just for that, but also because it is only 4 episodes long. The atmosphere of this drama is dark. And cold. This drama also introduces me to shogi. What a mind blowing game! Have you heard of this board game?
