ATTENTION: *BG is knocked out momentarily. Please stand by*
What, with Korea kicking it and taking names all this past year while dead silence from you!
About time you gave us something, in a new drama starting in July starring Fujita Nicole, Takeda Rena and Inoue Sonoko and from the looks of things, this is going to be one to check out, at least once! Looks promising but I hope Rena gets in on that action! I loved her in the 3rd episode of that short and lovely episodic Real Onigokko Rising TV series and have been dying to see more of her in a related drama and here we are!
Now please, please Japan, please don’t let me down this time! Times have changed! Please do not fall back to the clichéd safe gameplay! Take a risk! Give us a un-expected ending!
Now, if only I can get my hands on that teaser! I mean, the drama is just weeks away, there has to be a video…Where are you ma pretty? Nyehehehe…
Not this time Satan!
Do you have any idea who those two are?!!! That is THE Kaho and THE Nana, Komatsu Nana yo!
I can’t believe that I am just getting to know of this nice short drama! It was out last year, like, where the hell have I been?!!
In case anyone missed it, this is from the drama titled “Yume o Ataeru”! It was only 4 episodes short and Kaho just flashed in and out just like that but by the gods, if her time on there wasn’t a treasure!
The moment when you find out that they were those two kids way back when they were little. Theen you find out that not only Kaho’s character (Miiha) remembered those few brief meetings but that Yuuko too, one who should be beyond nostalgia, also remembered Miiha!
Almost as heart punishing as BvS finally letting us truly comprehend that Batman and Superman’s mothers were both Martha! Seriously, all these years reading comics and it never occurred to me! Zack, you’re awesome!
And let’s not forget about the moment when Miiha went in to kiss Yuuko! Actually before even then I was shocked at how welcoming and good natured Miiha was all kind of grown up! I certainly thought she would be animalistic towards Yuuko and I expected her to betray her at one point but she did not!
Then I was kind of surprised at how easy she was kissing Yuuko but then Yuuko did the real thing by retracting instantly! I sighed with relief because this wasn’t a kiss for the sake of kissing! Then Miiha gave Yuuko a few seconds before going in again! If Yuuko had pulled away again I am sure it wouldn’t have happened!
Still kind of out of no-where but really, what do we know? Yuuko is kind of famous and Miiha might have really crushed on her all these years since that moment in their childhood so…
Ahhh! Why am I making excuses? It’s a damn kiss between Kaho and Nana! Logic is irrelevant!
Then came the after! First the reaction after the kiss was very encouraging. They were both smiles and happiness. Miiha, the always optimistic one made Yuuko, one who had been miserable until that time finally be happy and smile and it was so good! They were so ready to be a couple!
Then the sun rose, or as we know it better as, the lesbian dies! Now of course since the actual reason for her death is not known (yes, I am pretty sure everyone thinks it was an accident but fuck that! I saw that look on her face in the car as she had that conversation with her manager about dreams!) I will forgive it.
Not to mention that her death completely changed Yuuko! If she had been miserable before, Miiha’s death totally pulled her from purgatory and dumped her into hell!
There was something there! There was potential! But really, with four episodes, what could have been arch…(Condo Barista Architect)…Oh! Well, forget I said anything! But to be fair this came out before that so…
Any who, streaming sites have it translated so go watch if interested!
Jump ahead for some caps ^^…
It’s about freakin time Japan!
About freakin time!
And the same goes for me!
First of all, before the next episode rolls around, and before all out there watch it, I wish to say something – I didn’t mean it, what I said in episode 5’s post about a certain single Dad. I was only kidding! I didn’t think that it would actually happen! You know, after all these times when it seems that everything I speculate on comes true (when it is bad speculation), you would think that I would learn to keep my mouth shut about these things! Anyway I just want to apologize. If anyone doesn’t know what I am talking about, I will explain in the next episode’s post.
For now, we are on episode 6. Rena and Kotoha are still getting closer (well, they are getting back on track in this episode), Kotoha faces her demons in her sister, we get a threat to our yuri introduced in the form of Yuma (the single Dad) and Rena finds herself is a heap of dunk.
“I don’t care if I have to do errands all day or work for free. Please just let me be by your side.” – Kotoha!
What is this?! Did I suddenly jump into the Quantum Zone of some sort? Twice! Twice Kotoha displayed her need to be with Rena this episode! And no, I did not make that line up! Kotoha went and said those words to Rena! Right in front of their employee too, because we need a witness! And it might just be me but it seems he is not the only one in support of the Rena/Kotoha relationship. But more on this would be spoilers so let’ not go there, yet.
Hello all, I hope you are having a lovely day and not being bored like I am at the office. Anyway, over the weekend I was fortunate enough to fall upon a new drama currently airing in Japan titled – Tantei no Tantei. As the title suggests, it is a drama about a detective agency that specializes in other detective. It is the Anti-Detective Agency who role is to take down corrupt agents.
It’s a 2 person agency or three if you count the one that initiated it but he never takes direct part in the actual work even though his subject report to him. Okay, let’s make it three since he (Yuma) is the one that recruits and kind of overseas the Agency. The rest of the members are Kitagawa Keiko’s Sasaki Rena as the original member and Kawaguchi Haruna’s Minemori Kotoha the new recruit and kind of the secretary of the Anti Detectives.
The drama is just on episode 4 with the fifth coming either tomorrow or the day after and man, was I hooked and wished I had found this after it was complete! First of all I love these kinds of drama (Kurokochi and Boss as an example) then there is the fact that Kitagawa and Kawaguchi were listed at the top of the casting! Those two tidbits combined it would have been near impossible to put me away from this show even if it was 1000% het!
Thankfully there is none of that, not even 10% so this was a must watch! I actually found this by accident! I didn’t see caps of it to hook me or even a post, I was just intrigued by the title and when I saw the OP of the first episode I went information digging!
But the real question is, why am I writing about this? Does it have yuri? For now I would say no! But the chemistry between Rena and Kotoha is going places and I will be damned if I am not there for the ride!
