About: 東京タラレバ娘 (Tokyo Tarareba Girls)

Thirty; Sense of Urgency

Hello, I’m back. In practically three months fit. Hah. It’s been quite a while since my last post about the ongoing drama, Totsuzen Desu Ga, and it’s suffice to say that I’m practically quitting that drama by the time I’m about to enter the fourth episode, and decided to skip far ahead to the final number nine, just because it had failed to move me kokoro in order to continue watching it. I mean, the third episode had lead us to the good conclusion of Asuka and Nanami becoming an item, but then, the next mumbo jumbo shittiness that’s waiting for us on the next episode is another rinse and repeat crap of the sympathy towards the ex thingy case, which has managed to make me ugh, and ah, and quit. And turns out I wasn’t regretting my decision cuz hella, by the time me watching the final episode out of curiosity, I feel like I’m not missing anything and the ending is so dull, and all the casts are basically there out of the love for their paychecks. So yeah. Disappointed, but not surprised.
Moving on. And so, as I stumble to this newer drama, Tokyo Tarareba Musume, I decided to give it a try cos it’s all about girls and their love stories, set in a romcom manner with a shiny line of casts. And though I found myself not quite warm up to the series as I want it to be, I still managed to finish it, cos this drama has quite a lot likeable factor, though it came up quite in balance with the dull one. Heh. I’m not gonna make this post long ass and boring just to talk about one farking drama, but Imma try my best to convey everything completely, despite being a rusty hiatus blog writer. Lulz.

Halfway Two Cents: 突然ですが、明日結婚します (Everyone’s Getting Married) #01-#02

Compromising Jinx

tie-the-knotBefore I yap, allow me to fashionably say, happy super farking duper belated new year, everybody! Time does fly when you’re doing neigh. Haha. Anyhoo, back to this post’s original intention. As far as you guys know since my last update on December last year, I’ve been dwelling my ass out on Tohoshinki and old dramas slash crime-genre series watching, and I gotta say that I’m pretty much stay the same until by the time I’m typing this post. Lulz. Buuuutt, I finally come back to my senses of the modern era dorama a bit, with this new, currently airing,  突然ですが、明日結婚します (Totsuzen Desu ga, Ashita Kekkon Shimasu). Well, actually, I’m not really that eager to watch this, as it more due to the reason of my own realization of how I’ve been wayyy far outta touch from chick flick and romance genre dorama, and I’m just trying to revive those feels again after all this time, in order to you know, feel that doki doki again. Hah.winter-coffeeAnd honest to the maxes, I’m not really fond at the line up casts in this drama either, since Nishiuchi Mariya is so damn tall compare to the main lead dude, Yamamura Ryuta, who is too skinny and emaciated; But heyyyy, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, amen sisters? Lol. So if we can put that shallow factors aside and focus on what matters, I must say that I like Nishiuchi Mariya, cos she’s the familiar face that I’ve known way before, when I was a (quite) avid Seventeen magazine’s reader. And turns out, she and Yamamura make quite a cute couple which surprisingly don’t awkward with each other. So yeah, I’m willing to give this drama a try for the sake of  that. And even though it took me one week to finish watching the pilot episode only, the second episode progressed quite fast in pace and nicely done, since turns out this drama is not as cheesy and cliche as I thought it would be with all the meandering ‘he loves me, he loves me not ‘ plot, cos the whole point about Ashita Kekkon is not about how they will ENDED UP together in the end, but it’s more on how they will work their ways in order to STAY together till the end, so this drama gives a lil fresh breeze of a story-line in a more mature way without being shittily predictable. Which is good.

Halfway Two Cents: はぴまり (Happy Marriage) #01-#02 & 당신을 주문합니다 (I Order You) #01-#04

CCC for WWW ~ Drama Edition ~

proposalOne and a half monthzzzz later, I’m back on the loop for a lil update. Teehee. I don’t have much things to talk about, actually, since I’m in this some sort of a shitty mood to watch anyhoo and anything in between; but yet, lately I’ve read a lot of buzz about web dramas and stuffs on the blogosphere, and how good they were yadayadayada. Well, I guess it’s a solid proof of how in this kind of time, watching and churning your emotions away aren’t limited to the TV screen only, hence lots of them sprouting and spawning through various major internet host sites with a known actors and idols as the main casts. But that is not the main reason why I give a try for web drama, since I always watch my shits in computer screen anyway, so there is not much of a difference it makes lulz… but there’s a lil part of me that curious about whether or not it was as good in terms of quality and production, as the TV one. Also, since I got a plenty time in my hands this week, and I just need a little melancholy ‘wetness’ to my dry grubby thriller crime drama watcher’s kokoro, so… yeah. And out of my randomness and fangirlingness, I decided to give two dramas a simultaneous try, which are はぴまり (Happy Marriage) and 당신을 주문합니다 (I Order You). Since I already invested my soul and energy in watching these, I gotta say a lil thought about it. But Imma make this shorty and quickie not bcos I’m not in the mood to make a long post, but my era of lengthy writing has come to an end, I guess… harrrharrharrr…

A Little Fluff to Kick Out the Huff

datenightWiggity wigggg… my mind’s been occupied with anxiety lately; Starting from my job hunting period to the real deal of moving into a new one. Gahhhhhhh *hair pulling* as you may have known, I have this some sort of overthinking anxious shitty trait inside my brain which sometimes killin’ me with its various creative ways of creating worst case scenarios. So, in order to kick that old bad habit of mine; rather than by eat my feelings away and piling up those pounds on my already whale-sized body (lulz…), I prefer a healthier, cyber-ish choice, which is to… collage it. As that is why I make this montage video of Boku to Star no 99 Nichi. So yeah, in short you can say that I sorta made this one out of a whim, as a pure distraction from my nerve and worrygutsiness, Beside, I’m still in the Ossan’s fad anyway, so no harm’s done with a little cheesy fluff in the midst of my topsy turvy routinity. lulz… And since this drama is all about rom-com chick flick with leaning majorly on the funny side, I decided to make this video with a lil change of POV by showing the serious melancholic side of our OTP. Aioooo… so doki doki, neeee??! Hahaha… Anyway, enjoy!

Peanote: Oyea, almost forgot. I add an English sub of the lyrics translation, cos like I’ve said before, this song is so fit, or should I say in Mean Girls style, “so fetch!” with the drama’s theme and story.

Pea-Peanote: I’ve just noticed that both Nishijima and Kim Tae-hee share the same birthday! Aigooooo! that is soooo ferking cute. And awkward. Lulz…

Anyway (again)… dozo~! ⇓ ❤ ⇓

45 Years of Nishijima Hidetoshi: The (Fashionably) Late Bloomer

forty fiveHi, peeps. It’s been over a month since my last post, and I think most of you have been thinking that I’m having hiatus for good or that I’m probably already dead, eh?! Haha… Well, I indeed almost considered myself to take an indefinite hiatus, but turns out I. Just. Can’t abandone you, peepsqueaks! Cos I luv you all so-so-so much with all my guts and ulcer *smooch* But it’s not just for you gurls; cos this squeezebun here too has hefty enuff kokoro to fangirl over this fetching Nippon-actor, Nishijima Hidetoshi ( ❤ ) as well. Talk about Nishijima-shi… *looking at calendar* omigosh… I am soooooooo on the verge of shedding my effin tears right at this moment, for I’m able to be alive, kicking, and posting right on the same day as his birthday TODAYYYY!!! Aiaiaiaiaiaiaiiiii!!! *sobs* And it is also not just an ordinary birth number as well, as our cutie patootie ossan is reaching the halfway to the half century age which is the big Forty and the fatso Five! Whoaaaawesome~!!! omedetou cutie ossan xoxoBut wait-o the minute-o! Before I start to yap around wildly and restlessly, I feel the need to point out that Nishijima Hidetoshi is a one rare case of late blooming actor in Japan. That being said, while most actors are reaching their heights of popularity in their 20s or 30s, Nishijima was reaching his peak right on his 40s, after had nonstop-ly starred in strings of various genre and type of films and doramas with distinctive kinds of role for over two decades.  Be it chick-flick, action, medical, sci-fi, dystopia; high budget, mediocre, rinky-dink; Japanese, Korean, English, French, whatever the shit, you name it, he’s done it. This un-pickiness of him finally become sumthin’ fruitful for his career, as he’s obtained the A-list actor predicate like he is now. And as a fan, too, it’s simply my ever so fricking pleasuuuure to be able to reap what he’d sown all this time, hence me marathoning his shitzzz all around for months. Haha. That is why, in order to celebrate this rare-as-solar-eclipse event and also not to make my hours and viewing impressions went down to the gutter of nothingness, I had made this Oh! So special! dedicational post of my fangirl journey over our birthday man sans the birthday suit. Lulz… and I’m gonna summarized the list not chronologically by the production year, but simply on my own timeline of watching process so far. Okie dokie then fellas, Here! We! Go~!

Mutsu: Muddle-Duddle Me

tameyori senseiHolla my mini-nation! I’m back yo! Whoa-ho-hooooo; my first review post in 2016, who would’ve thought that I still have this unlazy drive to write sumthin’?! Teehee… Well, maybe not that unlazy, since I actually had finished this drama on December, but I was not that eager to post about it whatsoever. But if I finally had managed to do so, it’s simply because I’m busting my ass in puttin’ my utmost effort to fullfil one of my new year’s resolutions which is to finish what I had started, despite THAT is really reallly hard to be done, especially if I already putting my couch potato pants on the way I do now. But well, since I had posted the review for the first batch of this drama already… a fangirl gotta do what a fangirl gotta do. So, here I am, taking off that couchy pants and typing this sheez; and I did it all just for you guys, my damn awesome avid blog-readers (as I assume I had one, Lulz…) Wokayyyyy, without further ado, lets jump to the vortex, people!
