I was gonna compare “Tokyo Tarareba Musume” to summer season’s “Hayako-sensei…” because it features different women in the marriage mart. However, Tokyo Tarareba is a bit different because the girls were pretty comfortable with their single status, happy with just an all-girls’ night-out until one blonde ikemen reminded them that they are no longer girls and their “what if” (tarareba) stories no longer fits them.
Here is a quick recap of Tokyo Tarareba Musume : Episode 1

I have no immediate plans to watch Jimi ni Sugoi, though I like Ishihara, I thought that the plot isn’t really interesting. However, the frustrated magazine editor in me made me press the play button as soon as I saw her cute outfits. I have no high expectations on this drama but I think that’s better since I enjoyed the first episode.
Here is a very quick recap of Jimi ni Sugoi : Episode 1

If you read my previous blog, you will know that among all HSJ members, Nakajima Yuto is my ichiban. It’s the main reason why I recapped “Suikyu Yankees“, I followed Date like crazy (though Anne and Hasegawa Hiroki are awesome), and now here’s HOPE. The drama is an adaptation from Korean drama titled “Misaeng” that became very popular in South Korea. As for HOPE, it didn’t get that much attention when it premiered with a measly 6.5%. Nevertheless, there is always hope as the story shows us how one can rise above the odds.

Hayako-sensei is one of the dramas this spring 2016 (alongside Watashi-wa) that talks about marriage for single women in their mid-years (35-40 y/o). A perfect josei drama for those who are searching for the one without being overly desperate and still proud of their single status.
Here is a quick recap of Hayako-sensei, Kekkon Surutte Hontou desu ka : Episode 1

I miss Matsujun so “99.9″ sounds the perfect drama comeback for him. I didn’t enjoy “Shitsuren Chocolatier” so I’m hoping that my love for deka/legal dramas will have me enjoying this. I won’t be doing a recap since there’s so much things, people, and terminologies involve. My experience in recapping “Bitter Blood” made me wary of ever recapping any deka/legal dramas.
Despite that, here is summary of 99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi : Episode 1

There is a flurry of love stories this Spring 2016, or shall I say stories about love relationships, marriage, dating, and “Love Song” is one of them. This is Fukuyama Masaharu’s Getsu 9 comeback after his marriage last year that broke a million hearts. Okay, that was an exaggeration.
Anyway, “Love Song” gives us an odd pairing with more than 20 years age gap that Fukuyama can be considered a cradle snatcher. What kind of chemistry this senpai–kouhai (they are from the same agency-AMUSE) team will give us?
Well, here is a quick recap of Love Song : Episode 1

Sawajiri Erika’s comeback drama after 8 years is either a miss or a fail. As LiLiCo, the narrator, have said, “First Class” is like a woman’s own battle royal.
Here is a quick recap of First Class: Episode 1

One may say that I only watched “Gokuaku Ganbo” to feed my Odagiri Joe addiction but believe it or not, I like the storyline. I can relate with Kanzaki’s financial problems though I’m thankful that I haven’t turned to yakuzas yet.
Anyway, Gokuaku Ganbo is actually adapted from manga; hence, some character image may be over-the-top. I just don’t know why they used a woman instead of a man as the lead since the manga obviously has a lead guy.
Nevertheless, here is a quick recap of Gokuaku Ganbo : Episode 1

Hanasaki Mai is not on my watch list for spring 2014 because the story line isn’t that interesting. However, I was impressed that its pilot episode received 17% in ratings. Written by Ikeido Jun, the author of top-rated Hanzawa Naoki, he also has two dramas this season under his belt- Hanasaki Mai and Roosevelt Game.
Since I don’t want to be left-out from the hype, I decided to catch Hanasaki Mai’s first episode with high expectations.
Here is a quick recap of Hanasaki Mai ga Damattenai: Episode 1

Death Note and Bleach popularize a different brand of Shinigami and Shinigami-kun tries to make their own brand of grim reaper with Ohno Satoshi as Shinigami no. 413.

Here is a short recap of Shinigami-kun: Episode 1
