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!
