1. Tokyo Tarareba Girls
I'm watching from Sony Gem TV cable. It is funny, and maybe the only winter dorama I'm watching that can make me laugh. It is the story of Yoshitaka Yuriko and her friends who are longed for boyfriend in their 30s. There is one man with white hair, Key, who always disturbs their dreams. Will Yuriko understand what the fate told her through this distratcting man?
Watched 1st episode and I will continue watch it. This is a good romcom dorama from a manga.
2. Shikaku Tantei Higurashi Tabito
Also watch it on Gem. I have watched the special episode in 2015 so I don't need to guess what it is. And I also read the manga. Truthfully, the special ep is mysteriously great. But I'm disappointed at the manga because it is boring and fell out of topic for many chapters. Actually came from a novel.
The story is focused on Higurashi Tabito, a man who can't use his 4 senses, except his eyes. He is able to see an aura or feelings of living things. With that, he helps people as a detective with the help of Yamakawa Youko. But his main objective is to find who kidnapped him in the past and get revenge, resulting in his loss of senses. The main focus is drugs so it's a bit different than most detective story (about killing or kidnapping). But the way the story told in manga is very boring. I hope the dorama will have more fun.
I find it a little bit boring. But I'll continue to watch for more episodes because Tabe Mikako and Matsuzaka Tori are one of my favorite.
3. Totsuzen desu ga, Ashita Kekkon-shimasu
Also came from a manga. Live action dorama is booming nowadays, on TV or movie. But it is either turn out good or bad depends on the storywriter. Totsuzen desu ga is one of a few in negative part. The story's pace is a bit boring, but Asuka's character is different than most josei's manga. While mostly the heroines are strong and not want to get married, this one is the opposite, but still has her strenght.
The story is simple. Just that Takanashi Asuka wants to get married and be a full-time housewife even though she is good at her job but she falls in love with a man who doesn't want to get married, a TV announcer Nanami Ryu. This is the first time I watched Nishiuchi Mariya and Yamamura Ryuta's work. I find they are suitable for each other (oh no, I might ship them). But one of my biggest mind to watch it is because there is Kagimoto Akira from boy hiphop group Lead. I've been following them unfaithful since more than 10 years ago, since in middle school! Wow, I'm already an office lady now for 5 years and still following him!! He's my favorite man in the world, I mean as a fan.
I will continue to watch it and hoping for Asuka's happy ending. I think the manga will have its climax in a few chapters ahead, or so? Since meeting is followed by separation. Btw, I watched the 1st ep without subs because I can't open Mega cloud on my browser. Dunno what's wrong.
I don't know if I will watch Seirei no Moribito Season 2 or not. I watched the 4 episodes of season 1. But season 2 has 9 epis Oops, already know him since Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai and HappiMari before he sings for Yuri! On Ice. More review, on my blogger post.
