Proposal Daisakusen
プロポーズ大作戦
Episode 2

This is what it’s all about! I really enjoyed this episode. It was a move away from baseball and into the class room setting. In this episode of Proposal Daisakusen, Ken doesn’t really remember anything about the photo he’s going into. Except that Rei was obviously upset for some reason. He decides to give it his all. So when Rei says that she wants some coffee flavoured milk, he does everything he can to get some milk for her. But Ken has a massive amount of plain bad luck.

I loved the comedy in this episode. And it was so adorable the way Ken went after the coffee milk for Rei.

I loved the way Ken remembered what it was like to be in school. For instance his comment about how it felt like it would be that way forever. Even I remember thinking that at school, it was hard for me to imagine a life without school. I think this show is very easy to identify with. Even if we don’t want to go back to our high school days, I’m sure there are still some great memories there. Our whole lives were stretching out before us, the possibilities endless. And I’m sure we all have something we’d like to redo, even just to see if we can make it turn out differently.

I think Mikio likes Rei, I’m not sure, but he always seems to be getting between her and Ken when ever Ken attempts to do something. Tsuru’s love for Eri is completely funny. Ken has lots of bad luck it seems, which is great entertainment.

Rei’s pressie, judging from the original photo, was some kind of intricate test. Who would get that, honestly?!!?? But I did like the effort she went to, I love presents like that. Ken also realises that he has a lot to learn about Rei, he doesn’t really know anything at all.

I do love the quote he wrote on the black board. It was a lyric from the song he was listening to. If you love the song, check under the “more” at the bottom of this post. I have some other links too.

“Hora, anata ni totte daiji na hito hodo sugu soba ni iru no
Look, the person who is important to you is right beside you.”

Overall, fantastic episode. I saw such depth, but at the same time it was some light hearted fun. I am really enjoying this series, I think it may grow to be one of my favourite j dramas. heart heart heart heart heart

The song in this episode was called Chiisana Koi no Uta, and you can find a copy in this post (scroll down a little bit). Here are the lyrics in Romaji here (now deleted :P). (Thanks to the Road to Otakuness for the links!)

edit: Here are the lyrics, since past websites have been deleted!

Hiroi uchuu no kazu aru hitotsu
Aoi chikyuu no hiroi sekai de
Chiisana koi no omoi wa todoku
Chiisana shima no anata no moto e
Anata to deai toki ha nagareru
Omoi wo kometa tegami mo fueru
Itsushika futari tagai ni hibiku
Toki ni hageshiku toki ni setsunaku
Hibiku ha tooku haruka kanata e
Yasashii uta ha sekai wo kaeru

Hora anata ni totte daiji na hito hodo
Sugu soba ni iru no
Tada anata ni dake todoite hoshii
Hibike koi no uta
Hora hora hora hibike koi no uta

Anata ha kidzuku futari ha aruku
Kurai michi demo hibi terasu tsuki
Nigirishimeta te hanasu koto naku
Omoi ha tsuyoku eien chikau
Eien no hanawa kitto boku ha iu
Omoi kawarazu onaji kotoba wo
Soredemo tarizu namida ni kawari yorokobi ni nari
Kotoba ni dekizu tada dakishimeru tada dakishimeru

Hora anata ni totte daiji na hito hodo
Sugu soba ni iru no
Tada anata ni dake todoite hoshii
Hibike koi no uta
Hora hora hora hibike koi no uta

Yume naraba semenai de yume naraba semenai de
Anata to sugoshita toki eien no hoshi to naru

Hora anata ni totte daiji na hito hodo
Sugu soba ni iru no
Tada anata ni dake todoite hoshii
Hibike koi no uta

Hora anata ni totte daiji na hito hodo
Sugu soba ni iru no
Tada anata ni dake todoite hoshii
Hibike koi no uta
Hora hora hora hibike koi no uta
