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 5

We’re now halfway in this drama and while the romance department has been slow, only giving us teasers here and there, this episode has some major moment! Although, it’s quite childish to call it “major”, but I’ve been waiting for this so let me flail. As for Morio, well she finally gets her time to shine and we see that she also has her own struggles that she needs to cope with.

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

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.

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. Time-travel is one of my favorite genres because who doesn’t want to go back in time? Although I wanna go back in time to witness certain historical events and not really to change anything or so.

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:

First Impressions on HOPE : Episode 1-2

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.
