So I marathoned the rest of Natsu no Koi today (eps 2-10). I really liked the whole part about Taiga trying to become a better actor and step out of his dad’s shadow. However the whole subplot of what I guess the main theme of the show was – just didn’t really strike me as too interesting. I like both actors but the two of them just don’t have chemistry. Maybe it’s because she rejected him for 8 episodes and then suddenly she’s like “SUKI!” It’s like the love between them felt like love between 12 year olds or something Then throwing Sakura suddenly making her like Taiga….lol wtf. She was such a bitch to him and suddenly she’s all like I LOVE YOU WHY DONT YOU UNDERSTAND! And soon as he rejected her, she runs after the guy who she called “annoyingly persistent.” (´･ω･`；) Also the Arashi theme song sounded so generic. I don’t know what it is but ever since 2-3 years ago every Arashi song just sounds the same to me..and this is coming from a person who still listens to “hadashi no mirai” no repeat
Overall it was an okay drama I guess and I almost teared up when the ghost of his dad showed up at Taiga’s play, but otherwise meh. Also the loli randomly going NO I DONT WANT ANOTHER DADDY in the 9th episode made me roll my eyes. I still think Kimi wa Petto was handled a lot better as far as younger guy + older woman relationships go. JP is currently downloading that drama so maybe I’ll have him post a review of it later.
