JUN: Where's Kitamura-san?
JIMUSHO GUY: She's at the bus station, going to Fukuoka!
JUN: (walks outside...gazes around pensively for a while)
ME: THE PREDICTABILITY OF THIS SETUP IS NOT A BAD THING.
LOVE RAINBOW: (kicks in)
JUN: (RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN)
ME: OMG JUST KEEP RUNNING FOREVER.
MONTAGE: (IS INDEED EXTREMELY LENGTHY AND SHOWS JUN RUNNING THROUGH A VARIETY OF LOCALES)
ME: THIS SHOW CATERS TO MY EVERY DESIRE.

(The characters who were supposed to be "great actors" in this drama were...definitely not. I SEE WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO DO THERE, DRAMA. IT REALLY DOESN'T MAKE JUN LOOK THAT MUCH BETTER.)

So I finally finished that, and also watched the Juui Dolittle premiere. Mao is perfect as always, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Shun in this. It's also been a really long time since I watched a drama with an extended premiere that didn't come off a total drag in editing. The stories are obviously going to be the typical predictable fare that come with medical dramas, but it's well-paced and Shun's performance is as high-quality as expected (and I'd watch worse for Mao's return to a renzoku).

...though I'm already jumping ahead to desperately wanting to see the DVD BTS extras to see Mao and Shun being PRECIOUS. Though they come off so sibling-like IRL that I now have a really, really hard time imagining them playing a couple, despite the fact that Rui and Tsukushi were how it all started.
meimichi: (arashi + words to live by)
My parents' home connection is such a wreck I can barely surf the net, and haven't watched any new Japanese TV since leaving Japan (which is fine, I have like a year of Arashi backlog on my external drive to catch up on). I had the car today though, so I drove to McDonald's to use their wireless and try to download all of Natsuniji (I left off on episode three).

THE ON-PARADE OF MOE JUST NEVER ENDS WITH THIS DRAMA, DOES IT.

I want to be BFF with the scriptwriter for this show and have Arashi-kai with her, because it's like Jun is basically playing THE BEST MOE HITS exaggerated version of himself. And she HAS to be a crazy fangirl because none of the moe is new. SHE IS WRITING HER OWN BORDERLINE-EXPLOITATIVE JUN RPF IN DRAMA FORM.

IF I WROTE A DRAMA FOR JUN AND COULD MAKE HIM DANCE LIKE MY LITTLE PUPPET, THIS IS WHAT I WOULD WRITE. EXACTLY.

When he fell in the pool for absolutely no narrative reason in the fourth episode except for the appeal of getting him wet, I was just like, "...SERIOUSLY I WANT TO BE THIS SCRIPTWRITER'S FRIEND. WE ARE CUT FROM THE SAME WOTA CLOTH."

Now I'm on episode five where they can't afford to order sushi, so Jun and Yuko have to make dinner together IN AN EXTENDED MONTAGE. NNNNNNNNNNGH.
