Dramas I’m Watching Spring 2018

I never thought that I’ll be able to update this blog again, work had been extremely busy since October last year and because of that, I decided to reward myself with a 1 week vacay from all those accumulated stress. Initially, I was planning to travel, but due to schedule conflicts with my friends, I ended at home for my vacation so I decided to spend this week binge-watching.

Enough of that, “Hana Nochi Hare” is probably one of highly anticipated dramas this season, my curiosity was piqued after those screenshots of MatsuJun aka Domyouji rocking it for his cameo. So yeah, I’m a simple woman, I see a glimpse of Domyouji, I watch it. As for that, here’s what I’m watching (and hopefully I’ll be able to finish them) this Spring 2018.

First Impressions on Tokyo Tarareba Musume : Episode 1

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

Jimi ni Sugoi : Episode 10 (Final)

We have reached the final episode and I’m so glad that I was able to finish this recap when I only started this out of a whim. Nevertheless, Jimi ni Sugoi‘s ending isn’t what I’ve expected, but if there’s one thing I learned from this drama is how we are sometimes led to a different path than the one we’ve always wanted.

Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu : Episode 2-3

This drama is so heartwarming, a short review wouldn’t be enough. I’ve been contemplating if I should write a follow-up since I’m already doing “Jimi ni Sugoi”, but after episode 5, I can’t take it anymore and I just need to share my thoughts about this drama mainly  because there’s so much FEELS.

For that, here is quick recap of Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu : Episode 2-3

Jimi ni Sugoi : Episode 3

The third episode is just full of unexpected happenings from Etsuko’s work to her impending love life. The spotlight is on to two of Etsuko’s workmates while Orihara may seem genuinely interested with Etsuko until her big reveal toward the end.

Jimi ni Sugoi : Episode 2

While Etsuko is slowly learning the ups and downs of being a proofreader, she’s becoming more engrossed with her work no matter how hard she denies it. As for the guy that captured Etsuko’s heart, it seems that Orihara is not just some college student who got evicted from his house, but someone more important than Etsuko could imagined.

First Impressions on Jimi ni Sugoi : 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

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.

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:
