So yea I haven’t blogged this show in a while because it was just Saito getting thrown between all sorts of tits except Louise’s..but then suddenly out of nowhere big bad angry dragon shows up, destroys all the side characters from this season, sends Saito to Akihabara and then sends him back for a Nadeshiko style ending with Louise. Also they got married. Read the rest of this entry »
Finally finished Moteki. I’m surprised I really liked this drama. I mean in the end, Yukio ended up with nobody because the girls he went after were wishy washy or just didn’t like the fact that he couldn’t settle on one of them (who can blame them?) The other problem is his never ending obsession with Natsuki the whore who sleeps with any guy who asks and “dates” like 20 guys at once. This is probably also why she gave him a chance when he was a fat ugly otaku neet. I still enjoyed the drama, it was very realistic and not completely overblown like most dramas you watch. I would definitely recommend it, as it was pretty funny as well
And so this fun series has come to an end. While Haruko failed to pass everyone because I guess either she sucks at teaching or they are just a bunch of idiots (except for Jack), she instead became an English teacher! So yea she gave up one dream for another I guess? XD I’d love to season another season of this, perhaps with some different gaijins as the cast. I think the entire concept is a lot of fun and I’m sure there’s plenty of Japanese to learn. I know I learned a lot of new things (like 水商売 ) from this show at least!
Not sure what this drama was trying to accomplish. Showing us cute 3D bacteria, grossing me the fuck out with that guy eating rotten foot and spitting rice into a bowl of sake, having nasty greasy otaku bid on a piece of gum (supposedly) chewed by an idol, or attempting to create last minute romance between the main guy and miss dominatrix I thought the bacteria were cute but other than that most of the show was weird/gross. Also their attempt to portray a trap was a complete failure because a girl actress is not going to work as a trap particularly when the original guy is taller and a hell lot more muscular. This isn’t like 3D Studio max, you can’t just desculpt someone’s muscles off =_=; I never saw the anime so I can’t compare but the drama ended up being kinda stupid so I guess you could watch the first few eps for the cute bacteria but otherwise it was kind of a waste of my time.
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.
Gotta admit I think JC Staff did a good job of adapting it. At first I was kinda iffy about the whole thing but in the end it really followed the manga and I guess ended at a good place to stop. It’s a shame there’s definitely enough material for a 2nd season but this probably will make less money than crap with tits or lolis that they poop out. The manga has finally gone into Usui’s background/past/political stuff so it’s really getting interesting now. Also at this point Misaki and Usui are pretty much officially a couple so you can rest assured that her tsundere ways aren’t going to last the entire series Proof:
