First week of love shuffling. Ojiro discovers a bit about AiAi’s past and why she has trouble in relationships. Older woman tries to seduce Kei and ends up in a bar fight (Hmm… Bad English there… I mean Kei ends up in a bar fight!). And there is a couple of pyjama parties…

Wow! This is a pretty crap show. The whole thing just seems pretentious. Let’s say it one more time, come on… “Love Shuffle”. :|

The music is soooo bad as well. The music sounds like it belongs in “Priscilla , Queen of the Desert.”

I really don’t have much to say about this episode. It just didn’t excite me at all. The characters are just so bland.

good The good thing about this episode was the bad English. I love listening to bad English. One thing I don’t get is why the native English speakers always seem to slur their words/don’t talk clearly at all. It is almost impossible for me, a native speaker, to understand them. It’s not just in this, I’ve seen it before in other shows.

bad The rest…

Liar Game, also staring Matsuda Shota, I thought was bad but actually got pretty good. Will this also improve? We’ll see if I can continue to watch through this boring program. Who would have thought that swinging could actually be boring? heart heart

 

What are the odds that Love Shuffle will get better?

    Love Shuffle, yeah it’s corny. Get over it. You’re the Crap Show. Native Speaker my foot. I’m a native speaker as well. It’s a Japanese series okay? give it some slack. You seem like the type that hates everything. It’s an awesome show! This coming from someone who can speak both languages and isn’t relying on other peoples upload to watch it. I’m watching it on TV in Japan. The music are classics from the states. Do your homework before you start bashing a piece Pssh, who would’ve thought swinging is boring??? Of Course it is! It’s only good BECAUSE it’s a drama. If you’ve got nothing good to say, don’t say anything.

    Ms. Carlie…

    I’m sorry about the above comment… I seem to have misunderstood. I thought I was reading comments from other people. Thanks for posting the video. I’m trying to DL even though I watch them on TV cuz I like it so much.

    ?? No need to take it personally, people’s tastes differ. I know the music, I grew up listening to the music. It gives the whole show it’s corney vibe. Nothing wrong with corney, I’m just not feeling it yet. Just because it is a Japanese series doesn’t mean I can’t hold high expectations for it…

    Anyway, not too sure what you are trying to get at… Yay, you love the series. Good for you. Next time I would prefer you to say your opinion without taking my opinion as a personal attack against you.

    lol

    your are totally right. I’m sorry. no, I meant that Japanese Shows are usually on the Corny or far-fetched side, and I think that is what makes them special. So are you in Japan right now or Australia? I saw the pics of you in Japan. I totally misunderstood, I don’t comment much I just DL stuff I like. Thanks for the patient approach… but I think I’ll pass… I’m not very good with balancing that… I either do emotion or reason when it comes to fan stuff… so I’ll just stay out.

    So you run this site by yourself? It’s awesome! and it seem your very good with Japanese. They teach it in school in Australia right? I wish the States would do that.

      Japanese shows being corney is one thing I love too, but I just haven’t found the story or characters engaging yet in this. Bareing in mind, I still haven’t had time to watch past this episode! There have been many drams that I didn’t like the start of but it really grew on me, such as Liar Game and Zettai Kareshi. Even Hana Kimi, one of my most fav shows, I was a bit iffy on at first.

      I am in Australia at the moment, but have visited Japan on holidays. I’m looking to move to Japan this year. I run this site by myself, it is something I enjoy doing. They do teach Japanese in some schools here. No reason you can’t learn by your self though, there is lots of support online, and currently I am self studying

    yeah, I see you’re point. plus I think I might have caught the first 2 episodes later, after I already liked the series.

    Wow, this is so much more HTML than I could handle… I am studying Japanese reading and writing under a family member right now but it seems like you may be further along than I am. I’m trying to get into a College in Kyoto so maybe I can live here on my own.

    Moving to Japan huh? Good for you! I love it here, it’s awesome!
