My impression of the drama.

Hmm… it’s honestly a mix between a fan service and a decent drama lol. As from the drama side, I do think they should be able to brush it up more nicely, instead of trying to finish everything so quickly. I think the ending is a bit pushed and fast. Some scenes are draggy and unnecessary, but on the other hand, the important ones are cut very short.

When watching, I was confused at how I should position myself lol. As a Kisumai fan? As a drama fan? Because it’s surely a mix between both (which I think they could actually do a better job in mixing it up more nicely). Like as a fan, I feel quite betrayed that they say all 3 are main leads, when in fact the main lead is Yokoo-san. Well, they did mention it here and there that Yokoo-san is the leader, but honestly I still expect a fair share of all 3 of them!

I love Sho’s story the most, I am glad of Shinji’s character growth, but Haru is surely lack of exposure! I demand more of Sen-chan! Hahaha.

But after all, experience won’t lie huh. Gaya and Ono Ito’s scenes are so natural, they’re the only ones that make me feel like I’m watching a real drama. LOL. That’s why ep 4 and 6 are my fave episodes, while ep 2 and 3 the least fave ones. Hahaha.

Okay gonna shut my mouth up here before I start writing some unpleasant stuff lol.

Hope you enjoy it!

    1. Thanks for the reminder. I remembered I have approved the access but somehow your name doesn’t show up on the sharing list? Anyway it has been re-approved now.

  1. Thank you so much for subbing and sharing this drama! My thoughts on this drama were similar to yours. It did feel choppy and a bit rushed and they definitely could have done more with Sen-chan’s character….but I quite enjoyed the fan service (the improvised bits where Gaya and Senga monitored Yokoo’s dates were so cute, even though they differ so much from the drama’s overall vibe) and there was character growth, so all in all, I’m satisfied with it! The boys seemed to have fun filming it, so that’s also a huge plus!

  2. Thank you for subbing this drama! Just finished it. I felt like… idk?

    The premise is really interesting, but they could definitely use a few more episodes to better develop the whole idea. Senga’s character had so much wasted potential.

    Not exactly sure how I feel about the improvised scenes. As a Kisumai fan, it was spectacular to see them being silly together. But, from the POV of someone watching a drama… weird??? It just didn’t fit with the rest of the story.

    But it was still enjoyable.

    Thanks again for your work!
