Just Reviews : Totsuzen Desu Ga Ashita Kekkon Shimasu

Totsuzen desu ga ashita kekkon shimasu” is another drama this season tackling the issue of women in the marriage mart. I love Nishuichi Mariya so this review can be pretty biased so I’ll limit my review to plot and characters. However, since this is also flumpool vocalist’s Yamamura Ryuta first foray into the acting scene, I think it’s only given that I comment on his acting as well.

Anyway, here is a summary of Totsuzen desu ga ashita kekkon shimasu : Episode 12

Favorite Japanese High School Dramas

There was a point in time when all I want to watch are high school dramas, I’m just so fascinated with Japanese high school life that it makes my high school life, in a  Catholic school, seem dull in comparison. Recently, there are more movies than dramas being produced about high school life, most shoujo mangas are also adapted into movies than the longer dramas, which is such a shame because I’ll surely enjoy watching these dramas.

Anyway, from yankees to ikemens to ojou-samas, here are my Top 5 Favorite Japanese High School Dramas that will let you relive your high school days:

Just Reviews : Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu

Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu“, which literally translates to “We married as job” is one of the rom-com/josei dramas this season and I never thought that I would love it. I guess I’m just biased because it stars one of my girl crush, Aragaki Yui, but I found myself loving the other characters as well. If you never thought of getting married as a job, then this drama might just open up a window of new possibilities- no strings attached.

Here is a summary of Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu : Episode 1

Time-Travel Japanese Dramas

The other day, I was craving for some time-travel/time-slip dramas and most Google results are Korean and Chinese dramas so I decided to write one for Japanese.

There’s not much time-travel dramas I’ve seen so I’ll narrow my list to Top 5. Here are my Top 5 Favorite Time-Travel Dramas:

Dramas I’m Watching this Winter 2016

Winter 2016 got me hooked to some dramas now that I’ve stopped blogging for jnewseng. One thing in common from 3 our of 4 dramas that I’m watching is that 3 of these stars a Johnny. haha.


Anyway, for a non-JE drama, I’m watching “Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai“. It stars eye-candies from Fukada Kyoko, Dean Fujioka, and Miura Shohei. I’m familiar with the plot since I used to read this manga until scans has been scarce and I’m loving the adaptation so far, Dean Fujioka is perfect as Shunin while Shohei looks so refreshing. Fukada can be a bit awkward at times but she’s better with cutesy roles that goes with her pretty face.
