c86a6d2eb1924159193d389f843c20f9

I finally finished marathoning Crisis! Oh em gee… the feelzzzzz! I really had this massive withdrawal and denial. The show ended on a high note and one major cliff! I had to sound the alarm and alerted my girls, Bel, Panda and Trotwood, when I completed it this evening. I was shocked by how it ended. I simply could not believe it… the team was created just to get Akira? I just can’t accept it! They went this far just to lure him? Ridiculous!

Currently Watching: Death Cash

Death_Cash-p02

Death Cash reminds me of the Final Destination movie franchise. But it is a lot more horrid. All death associated with cash. And they aren’t just regular cash, they are Death Cash. The type of cash that would cost your life. Scary right? You won’t know when you will get it. For anything, I could be getting one anytime soon! *screams* This what happens to Yuka’s friends. They all ended up dead. Their death are pretty gruesome, too! I can’t even tell you. Some of the death are too shocking…

The episodes are not easy to watch  even though I marathon the first three ones just like that. The episodes are pretty short. They are less than 30 minutes long. But the context makes it as if you’re watching an hour-long show. I’m not going into details in my review today because my drama buddy Bel is recapping it. So far, 6 episodes have aired though I have yet to watch the episode 6. I’m not really sure how many episodes Death Cash has. I’m going to assume no more than 11 episodes long. So far, I’m really liking it. Some parts can be quite slow and draggy but they are necessary elements before the buildup to the next death.

Death Cash is not for everyone. I’m surprised that I get this far with the show. I have a weak heart you see but for some reason, this show makes me curious. How this death legend got started (you will get your answer in episode 5)? And how it get spread out like that? Also, why is occurred among Yuka’s friends? Lots of questions; hence the reason I’m watching it. If you are interested in reading recaps, here they are: episode 1, episode 2, episode 3 and episode 4. Good luck!

Currently Watching: Happy Marriage?! aka Hapi Mari

91MbZaQL_7419cc_f

Happy Marriage?! is cursed! *sobs badly*. My love for Dean is definitely forbidden. The subber is super busy with RL and my watch is now on hold… tsk tsk tsk. Bel and I and other Happy Marriage?! fans are left in limbo and stuck on episode 5. Some of us decided to watch raw episodes. I know how the feel. The power of Dean. I could do it but I’d like to pay more attention to the show. I’m curious and therefore, not willing to watch it raw. Sorry Dean, it’s not that I don’t like you… I just need to understand the story. *shrug*

Happy Marriage! is slated for 12 episodes. I’m a bit surprised that the drama is this long. It is rare for Japanese dramas. But since each episode is about 35 minutes long, I think it isn’t bad. Once a week airing though is stabbing my heart deeply *sigh*. Anyway,… As I’m typing this, the subber finally released subbed episode 6 and 7. Of course, I just saw it *beams*. And apparently, she will release episode 8 soon. I really appreciate her hard work. I wish I have learned the language so I could help her out too.

So Happy Marriage?! is adapted from a manga of the same title. However, I do not know if the story follows the exact plot. But I do know one thing, Chiwa is one insecure girl. Her dad is a serial gambler and she works two jobs to support themselves and to pay his mountain of debt. One night, as she works as a hostess, she met Hokuto but she found him so offensive that she splashed a glass of water onto him. The next day, she found him at the front door willing to compensate the debt her father owed with loan sharks. She was dumbfounded by his generosity. But his generosity comes with a price! She must marry him! A rational woman would not marry him for money! Wait, that doesn’t sound good. Maybe some would marry for money. Well, let’s not argue. Chiwa, on the other hand, is desperate to get out of the mess her dad did and agreed to Hokuto’s proposal. This contract marriage is not looking good, ladies… *worried*

The reason Hokuto approached Chiwa was because she is the granddaughter of his grandfather’s ex. Hokuto has different means and wanted to please his family. Besides, since Chiwa looks like her grandfather’s ex, Hokuto feels he will have the advantage in the family. The two got married eventually but they went through a lot to get where they are. Hokuto is known to be manipulative but Chiwa doesn’t know that. She heard it from his dad. Chiwa is too weak and easily influenced. Her awareness radar is low. She’s pretty but really, I do not know how a success man like Hokuto sees in her. Status wise, they are in two different playgrounds.

Hokuto is a success man with many admirers, especially women. On the other hand, a colleague is liking Chiwa more and more. Hokuto warned her that she cannot see other men but him. Urgh, that sounds very selfish, isn’t it? Chiwa obliged to his request. I don’t know whether she should. After all, this is a contract marriage. She may love Hokuto but we don’t get his real feeling. I could see in his eyes that he is for real but his arrogant action really gives her mix messages. In the end, is this another Happy Marriage?! Let’s find out together! By the way, this is an Amazon-produced drama. Well, they did not pay me to say that… But who knows they might *laugh*
