I marathoned a bunch of new dramas last night and…
Ouran High School Host Club – A lot better than I thought. I really like the actors for Tamaki & Kyouya, just as the actors themselves. I don’t think they’re LIKE the anime/manga chars that much, but I like their acting so I’ll probably keep up with this.
Ikemen Desu ne! – A drama about a nun who becomes a cross dressing singer and when they find out she’s a chick, love triangles ensue. I’m loving it lol. This is based on a Korean drama but I never watched the KR one so as a first time viewer I like this one a lot.
Arakawa Under the Bridge – Well I never bothered with the anime and the drama might be a bit too weird for my tastes….but I just love the guy who acts as Riku…he was that nice guy in Shokojo Seira..he looks so much hotter playing a salaryman lol. I’ll check out a few more episodes before deciding whether or not to continue.
Kingyou Club – This seems very slice of lifey but I feel like the romance aspect might be interesting! It really focuses on bullying and all that jazz which I don’t really like but the drama has at least piqued my interest.
Anyway these are probably the dramas I’ll be watching this season so I recommend giving them a look.
I mean when you make a remake of something, isn’t it supposed to be BETTER? Why then is every guy in the remake so fucking ugly? Not only that, but they even reuse the same freaking BGMs as the first series. The only thing that feels the same is Mizuki since she kinda looks like the previous actress…but everything else is ugh why. I’m pretty sure AKB also sings the OP to this show….so yea it’s pretty obvious they’re just trying to ride on the AKB gravy boat….which is strange since this is a story aimed at females. Or is it possible AKB is popular with not just males but females also?? （ಠ_ಠ）
Lol I don’t know but I won’t be sticking with the rest of this fugly cast to find out.
I think I’m just biased towards Hino Satoshi…everything else about the show is template guy gets dominated by violent & ドＳ chicks, he nosebleeds when touched by girl, and his younger sister does pro-wrestling moves on him every morning…and he has to take it all because he found out that the trap butler is well…a trap. Yea there’s nothing original about this show, in fact it’s generic & godawful but when I hear Hino Satoshi’s voice…. ┗(^o^ )┓三
But if you do take a look, make sure to turn off your brain beforehand.
- Be a fan of the otome game, or otome games in general
- Be a fan of every single male seiyuu that’s in this show, who’s also in every otome game ever
- Be a fan of Wakamoto Norio voicing a crazy principal who’s obviously the last boss
- Enjoy pretending to be a Mary Sue surrounded by hot mans
- Like to hear Nakamura Yuichi voicing traps
If most of the above don’t apply to you, this anime is not for you ^q^ I intend to play the otome game eventually but a remake will be coming out in August so I’m holding off until then…since the original game’s backgrounds were cheap gradient crap lol. I hope they make more otome game animes honestly though. They should make one of Takuyo’s games into anime, their stories are so much better than that Kiniro no Corda or Angelique garbage.
