Daily dramas are double-edged swords in many respects. Even if you have an idea of what will happen, it takes a long time to get there and you want to scream in frustration or bang your head on the wall with just how drawn out the plot can be. Add in the fact that sometimes acting in daily dramas may not be as good as in prime time miniseries and even your love for a drama can die out faster than a normal Asian drama. That doesn’t make daily dramas bad in the long run once you know what you’re expecting. [Read more...]
It’s been quite the last half of the week. I got my new TV, rearranged my room, broke my Roku player, started watching another Singapore drama, and totally neglected everything else. I admit fear of this episode. I was really worried how long this whole amnesia plotline would go and the scenes had me worrying. While I am still a bit cautious about how this drama will work out and end, unlike the latest episode of Hakuba, this one I found a lot happening in progression of the plot and we are starting to get more and more answers…although I admit [Read more...]
And no progress. Really. Ozu can’t seem to work out his issues and kick Kaori to the curb for Hara who wonders if she should love with her head or her heart. This slow drama is just frustrating at times. It really is. It’s not a bad drama, but sometimes its slaggy pace drives you insane. Not nearly as bad as a daily Korean drama, though, thank God for small favors.
So…what to say? I suppose I should give this episode it’s due diligence, but at the same time…this draggy drama had another draggy episode. Don’t get me wrong, I actually like [Read more...]
This really was quite the episode and I can’t help but be left with a somewhat unsatisfactory feeling, especially after seeing previews for episode 10. Our characters have been making some bad decisions to begin with and it looks like they might keep on making some bad decisions. How well will this end? Will Ozu and Hara be able to finally lock on and find true happiness?
Hara goes to school basking in the glow of what happened is finally happy. As soon as Ozu sees her, he flees the teachers’ room. Normally this would worry her, but she doesn’t think anything [Read more...]
Last week was crazy because of the holiday, so things got really backlogged and delayed. Oh, well. I enjoyed the time spent cuddling and playing with my favoritest (only) nephew in the whole wide world.
This episode, while making some very great points, had kind of a dull feel to it. I mean, Hoshi’s light bulb moment was so, so, so…silly. It was an important moment, but I honestly can’t believe it took our resident hacker and Asahi-lover this long to figure out that an android is a machine programmed by humans. Seriously. Shakes head. Sure, this android is also an A.I., [Read more...]
I admit to being sad that this drama is over. Ok, it’s been over for quite some time now, gomen. This was really well acted, well written, and really socially relevant if you think about it. The pacing was good and you were kept guessing and trying to piece things together until they all click into place in the final episodes. The ending didn’t feel rushed and while we are left to question a bit about how much of Tago Yudai’s story is true and how much is made up…you know his motivations and what drives him.
Episode 8 has Kazu telling [Read more...]
Okay. It’s a mindset thing. I really don’t get the desire of these women to find someone and marry and my age has nothing to do with with as I’m not too far from 30 myself. But I’m not anxious or worried about ending up all alone…actually…that’s my preference since I don’t believe in marriage (for myself), so these women in this story…I can’t really relate to them and the choices they are making.
Anywho, so Hara and Ozu shared a nice romantic kiss at the beach and thus both did not get the urgent phone call that one of their students [Read more...]
We are making some slow progress in finally uncovering some answers, but there is still much that is unknown. I will admit shock in learning about just how dark of a character Nanase really is. Is what the Last Queen said really true? I am really curious to know if Lloyd is the older brother that overshadowed the Last Queen or if that is another android.
Lloyd still is suffering from the loss of his repair unit Suppli. Without her, he has no way to repair himself in any significant way. Besides that…he really does miss the loopy bot. While he and [Read more...]
While the last episode of Ando Lloyd was a bit disappointing, I can’t say the same with this drama’s latest episode. I am curious of Kaori’s insecurities like always. Is it just the distance or is there some other reason she feels anxious about her and Ozu’s relationship. Is this all Kotomi’s doing since she reports everything back? And…if Kaori was there in the flesh…would Ozu still be pulled towards Hara? Who knows?
The morning after the goukon has Ozu still trying to figure out Hara’s actions while Hara tries to figure out if her next move should be to confess her [Read more...]
