(I want to squish them so hard!!!!!)
I have a confession of deep dark shame: I watched a TOKIO song on youtube and enjoyed it. They are still shinier than I prefer my musicians to be, but they actually play instruments *gasp* and can sing in tune! And they look like they hit puberty some time ago and actually had a meal or two since. Plus, I liked the song. I don’t think I will be seeking out more, am not really big into musical stuff, but…the deep dark shame will haunt me. Shame. Shaaaaaaame.
Anyway, it’s always fun to discover a new actor ‘crush’. I will definitely be checking out Utahime (I’ve seen flisters love it but somehow missed that it’s set in 1950s! Yay!). I will also check out My Boss My Hero (summary sounds cracktastic) and Ikeburo West Gate Park (it has Yamapi in it too. Though he is what, 12 in it?)
But meanwhile, I am totally in love with Mukodono. I totally want to adopt Sakuraba Yuichiro: he is so adorably dorky and clueless. Heeee. The scene where he came in to ask for Sakura’s father’s permission to marry her made me LOL so hard I had trouble breathing.
I love Sakura too, who is sweet and down-to-earth and also dorky, and I loooove Sakura’s cooky family: her retired father and three older sisters, one of whom is a cooky mother of surly teen and is separated from her husband, one of whom is a geneticist with an allergy to men who had a son via artificial insemination, and one who is a workaholic employed by a radio station. I want to be in that family!
( Caps from most awesome permission-seeking scene in drama history )
In news of dramas that are not good, but entertaining nontheless, has anybody watched Delicious Gakuin? I checked out about ten minutes of first ep before being sidetracked by the shiny of Mukodono.
Since nothing I could write would be crackier than the plot, I bring you the wiki summary: After being kidnapped and being taken to a cooking school told they must enroll, a group of boys deal with learning tons of recipes while also focusing on thoughts of love,* friends, and intentions.
Yes. Kidnapped. To be made into Chefs by force. Whaaaaa? Jdramas, never change.
* Seeing it’s an all-boys school, I can tell what kind of lurve it’s going to be ;)
Between the incredibly over-the-top acting, the skinny, girly-looking boys with mile high hair, and the psychotic plot, I can tell I will be very entertained.
