Just Watched: Aku no Hado

jAQndf

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

2xVR2f

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?

Currently Watching: Manpuku

jrRxyfAs I am about to complete my first Asadora, Manpuku is my second daily I started shortly after. Though this show is subbed quicker, I have not been able to focus much. The show lacks the handsome factor that got me going from one episode to another *giggles*. I know, I know… I sounded extremely superficial. Well, I am! This series dedicated to family, invention, survival and family. As you know, I love a tiny bit of romance in my show especially in a 151-episodes daily drama. I just surpassed episode 51 which means I have 100 episodes to go. If I put my mind to it, I could finish it before I leave China. But could I?

Currently Watching: Coffee & Vanilla

Just like that, I almost finished watching Coffee & Vanilla. I started two days ago to fill in the Nagi’s Long Vacation hole that left deep in me. I was so entertained by it that I thought this drama would give me something to giggle. Well, sure enough… this show did not only give me giggles, it also makes me cringe hard. I did not realize it was adapted from a manga until the female lead started narrating the show. It is so obvious especially when she looks at the camera with that cute facial expression. Her voice also gives it away, in my opinion.

Currently Watching: Nagi no Oitoma

凪のお暇2

Yosh! I finally got my Jdrama mojo back! It has been a long time since I last saw my Japanese series. I am still on my two Asadora but they are nearly completed. I am currently in China and both Kocowa and Viki are not working despite using my vpn. But miracle is on my side! Plex is working wonderfully and I am able to watch my dramas! I tried watching Love Affairs in the Afternoon but the affairs made me so nervous! I put the show on pause, once again. Don’t worry… I will get back to it. I am not a quitter!

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?
