It's a little disconcerting how, for the past few weeks, at the back of my head, all I do is play with numbers and do a little math.Correction
-- do a lot of math
---( I'm not really comfortable saying these things aloud, much less having to write it out, but I honestly, honestly need an outlet.Collapse )
I've watched 「私が恋愛できない理由」 episodes 1-9 in one sitting. And now I can't even bring myself to watch episode 10, ahaha. #fail
love story identifies/is similar with that of Karina's character (Fujii Emi), who thinks love is troublesome. My personality though resembles much of Yoshitaka Yuriko's (Ogura Saki), who likes to think herself knowledgeable
and street-smart, but goes bollocks when she finally experiences love.
Though while I did
enjoy the show as I've seen it, I'm actually not convinced of Yoshitaka Yuriko and Ogura Yuko's acting chops. 8( /runs from novemberbaby
lol And and. Uhhh, something about Yuriko's mouth just unsettles me -- it's like she purposefully makes her lips curl in this catty way that'd make you think she's, well, catty
. And cute.
She's fast becoming a Toda Erika in my books
Maybe it was because I was expecting more character development for Saki
(though I did think she had the most reasonable character development), but to me, the focus for the most part of the drama had been Emi
's inability to get over an unfinished business
. It doesn't help that the people in Emi's workplace seemed to be so deeply-rooted in the plot that they can't not have the bunch in every episode. (I'm not complaining though; the actors who played the part of Karina's colleagues were a good bunch.)
Also, my huge undercover crush for Tanaka Kei is just persistent. ahahaha. Kei wae so squishy?!
yes this gets its own paragraph of sorts bwahahaha
I do commend though the development of Emi, Saki and Mako's friendship -- from vaguely familiar acquaintances to housemates to, well, confidantes
. And it's executed the share a flat, share lives
type of friendship-romance drama that Last Friends
failed to flesh out. (Admit it, Last Friends' saving grace was Ueno Juri's stellar acting. Asami's talent was so sidelined and Eita's character development so stunted and the prolonged milking of the relationship between Masami and Ryo due to high ratings when DV is in play... idek how to explain that clusterfuck.)
That said, I think I'll try to watch the last episode of the drama this weekend instead of as soon as I can--
--I'll just be watching the VS Arashi episode where Arashi plays against the kids. THE KIDS. AIBA AND MOMOKA HOMG /ovaries explode seriously Japan, WE NEED A MY GIRL 2. In which Masamune finds a new love and Koharu-chan gets jealous and sad and mad that Masamune-kun is replacing her mama. ;O;
13 DAYS TO GO AND OMG, IT'S NADEGATA JAPAN'S 30TH BIRTHDAY O M G SHO WAE YOU LOOK YOUNGER THAN I DO?!?! /creys at her subpar genes orz
We have a photo op tomorrow at work. And I'm still awake at an ungodly hour.
I... just can't sleep yet.
