That’s right, Miyu-chan just kissed another girl within the span of one post! And yes, this is the drama, not the anime! I might or might not be checking the anime out it all depends on what happens in the drama! I already have a feeling where the show is going to end up but like I said, I am trying to get back to my glass-half-full old self so before I am either proved right or wrong with the next episode, I have decided to write about the first two episodes that I have watched.
Verdict so far? If my gut feeling is proved wrong as the series progresses, then Japan is going to get the props for starting off 2017 in style and maybe even winning it in the long run! There are already a couple of movies I am waiting to hit the shelves that look promising this year so things are looking up for Japan. Don’t ruin this one, okay?
Like I said, the anime is also currently airing and if I am not mistaken, it is probably at around episode 8 or so. The drama is on episode 4 as far as I am aware but I have watched the first two episodes only. Each episode is sadly 24min which might mean that we might get the full 12, maybe? Either way, I am going to continue watching until I am inevitably let down or proved wrong, then I will marathon the anime!
So, what is this thing exactly that I am thinking will happen? Well, going with what popped into my head first, this has ‘Last Friends’ vibes written all over it! And by that I mean in the fate of our lovely couple in Hanabi (Miyu-chan) and Sanae (Sarii)! The other is this feeling I usually get when I connect to the yuri force! Here’s what is what…
So, our main characters are together and everyone thinks of them as the perfect couple! But all is not as it seems. What is actually going on is that they are in a fake relationship! Even as they kiss and make-out all they are thinking of is their actual person that they love! Hanabi, played by X21’s one and only Captain Yoshimoto Miyu, is actually in love with her brother, a brother who is in a relationship with another teacher who, the main male character is also in love with! They both know each other’s secret but they still put on the façade and even have rules of dating!
Knowing that, you know very well what is going to happen here in the end! Hanabi has zero chance of actually ending up with her brother and if they are going that route, then chances of the main male character being with the teacher has little chance of happening, but then again, that is less of a taboo than Hanabi’s situation so…But anyway this is only if what we all are thinking is going to happen does not and that is that Hanabi and the main male character are going to end up developing real feelings for one another in the end!
Really, even a middle-schooler can see this coming a mile away! And so this is why I am very sensitive going into future episodes, especially since we are only on episode 2 and the yuri has already hit the fan! Things can’t go on this smoothly for the rest 10 or so episodes, it is impossible!
Which is why I have decided to post about these first two while I am still feeling the butterflies, before I get disappointed by later episodes because I wanted to wait until Hanabi and Sanae became an actual thing, like I would do usually! With that out of the way, let’s get this party started….
