i don’t really know how to feel about this drama. i decided i needed to watch a japanese drama to prepare myself for being around japanese a lot more (taking a japanese class in college and hopefully getting that job with the little japanese girl). i picked sprout because i thought that would be the most age-appropriate of the new japanese dramas out there. i wanted one that is current, so we could have something to talk about. i doubt she watched the original hana kimi (2007), or any of the others i’ve watched. the most recent one is from 2009. she’s too young; making me feel old. so, anyways, back to the point: i picked one i hoped she would know. and, it’s based off a manga. not surprising, usually pleasing. however, i’m not a big fan so far. i think the main reason for that is because the female lead seems selfish.. it also seems to have drifted from the manga. the synopsis for the manga said she currently had an idealistic life and a BOYFRIEND. whereas, in the drama, she clearly doesn’t have a boyfriend.. and is in-fact on the search for a mystery man who came to her aid during the day of the entrance ceremony at school. currently, my favorite character is the male lead’s best friend. i have 2 more episodes to watch to get caught up. hopefully it will get better!!
began rewatching hana kimi!! this time, my brother is watching it with me. we watched 6 episodes, after a failed attempt at watching mei-chan no shitsuji together. this is more his style ^^
