Autumn Dramas 2009 – What’s coming soon

Posted by on Sep 24, 2009 in Reviews | 6 comments

With last season’s dramas all finishing up now, it’s that exciting time when all new ones begin! Let’s have a look at what next season brings.

Sounds Good To Me!


  • Tokyo Dogs
  • A strong cast in this one. I’m very excited to watch both Oguri Shun and Mizushima Hiro together (again). It will hopefully be good :) I have to say that Shun’s hair cut is very flatering. (Plot? What plot? Did someone say something about a… ooh, there’s Shun and Hiro :luvfly: )

  • My Girl
  • Staring Arashi’s Aiba Masaki this is the story about him raising his daughter by his self. It’s a late night one so it might not have much quality in it, but it looks perhaps sweet, plus I like Aiba, so I am looking forward to this one.


  • Shokojo Seira
  • Or “A Little Princess”. Ths was one of my favourite books when I was a child, so I’m very interested to see how they interpret this!

Where did I first see him?
Without realising it, I first saw him in Densha Otoko, the tv series. It wasn’t until later, when I knew who he was, that I went back to rewatch and see him there. I can’t remember if I watched Hana Yori Dango or Gokusen first, but I watched both around the same time. It is around this time that I actively became aware of Shun. I’m not sure when I first became to really appreciate him as an actor, but I certainly came to admire him.

My Opinion
Shun is one busy boy. He seems to do a lot. I really like Shun as an actor – he’s someone that I would watch something because he is in it. He is pretty sexy too, in an odd kind of way – and definitely looks better with darker hair in my opinion.

Misc Facts
bullet Shun has Pectus Excavatum, a disorder in the chest which makes a part of it sunken. He’s still sexy.
bullet He’s left handed. Lefties for world domination!
bullet He likes surfing.

7 Things I Love About the Hana Kimi Special!

Posted by on Sep 26, 2007 in Reviews | 1 comment


Ah, watching the Hana Kimi special that aired before the final was good therapy. Which I needed soo badly after the depressing final episode. Don’t get me wrong, I thought the final episode was all that it could be plus more, I am so very happy with it, but it’s so depressing that the show is over and there is no more Nakatsu in my life. The special was very shiny, and brought a little bit of a smile back to my face. I’d apologise for the large amount of Nakatsu caps but I’m not sorry.
