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.
Um plz bring back Ikuto Toma & Oguri Shun (´･ω･`；)
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.
Apparently it’s the season of anime to drama adaptations.
So it’s been a while since I watched any J-dramas but I decided to check out Rebound. Just as the graphic was funny, the show was great as well. It’s a story about a girl named Nobuko who was fat all her life and finally spent a year to lose weight…until she met with a crappy pastry chef who needed her to sample his cakes because he kept making shitty ones. Due to this she rebound back to a fatty but he made a good cake finally and wants her by his side…not realizing she’s gained like 150 lbs xDDD Anyway it’s really a fun drama to watch (and has the same 2 main leads as Zettai Kareshi ) so I recommend this to everyone!
Here’s the “breakdown” of the 24 various and manifold dramas that will be airing this Spring:
So I know how everyone complains “Waaaaaaaaaah, every anime is lolipedo moeshit!”, “Waaaaaaaaaah, every anime is fanservice trash”, and so on. Those are exaggerations, of course. But dramas, on the other hand, really are all the same. Check out the list of this season’s dramas.
There are 25 new dramas airing this season. That 25 consists of:
NHK prestige dramas: 3
TROUBLED people with PROBLEMS: 2
Eccentric-teacher-with-a-troubled-school: 2 (plus a special that I didn’t count)
Doctors: 1 (Wow, only one. I guess they’re all still continuing)
Fake Winter Sonata ripoff: 1
Live-action Trapeze: 1
KILLER (Korean girl group) WHORES: 1
LIVE-ACTION GARTENDER: 1
Also note that there’s a little more overlap, like how some of those period dramas are also NHK prestige dramas, and how some of those detective shows are about TROUBLED detectives with PROBLEMS
Umm yea so apparently Japan decided to make Dr. DoLittle into a Japanese drama. Unfortunately unlike the original movie, the drama is all srs bzness and our Dr. DoLittle is a hard ass guy whose done some hard livin’ in his days so he only is fueled by money. Additionally he can’t actually talk to animals but he can “hear their cries for help.” Really it’s just an excuse to get these 2 actors who couldn’t get shipped in Hana Yori Dango, to instead be shipped in this drama. I admit I am tempted but this drama is just way too much! I’m not sure how much of this cheese I can handle, and well seeing injured nukos breaks my heart so I don’t think I will last too long on this one. (´･ω･`；)
