Fight for My Way: on episode 11~16, final thoughts

“If growing up means your dreams fade, I’ll give up on growing up.”

You know the drill. If you’ve read my previous posts on this drama, you know my likes and dislikes. And they stay pretty much the same all series long. In other dramas, i’d be all ranty by now, but the fact that i am not doesn’t mean it’s all good, i just wish not sound like a broken record. It’s not that i’ll gloss over the issues either, but let’s say i’ve anticipated it that i’ve adjusted my expectations accordingly.

Rebel–Thief Who Stole the People: on episode 21~30, final thoughts

I’m really getting worse and worse about ‘final thoughts’ post on dramas i don’t cover regularly. The same goes for ‘series review’. Once i put off started writing shortly after watching the finale, i’d keep procrastinating until God knows how long that chances are i’m dropping it altogether in the end. Or i’ll feel compelled to finish what i started…long after i finished the show. Like Moonlight, i finally work on my closing post on Rebel two months after it ended.

Boku, Unmei no Hito desu: final thoughts

“Marriage is when, even after 50 years, you wake up in the morning and still think the person next to you is good. It’s a tough job.”

In romance or rom-com, it’s almost 100% guaranteed that the two on the poster are the OTP and thus will end up together. Likewise, in Boku Unmei, whether or not Makoto and Haruko will have a happy ending is a no-brainer. Moreover, we can be 100% sure that they’ll get married in the end. God says they’re fated partners after all! And the world needs their kid!

Reverse: on episode 9~10, final thoughts

“Coffee drips down a drop at a time. The first drop is the most delicious and deep. The last drop is the most bitter. You must never put the last drop in.”

This narration opens episode 10, and going by the analogy, we have come to the final part of story. Let’s see if the last drop is indeed the bitterest. Continue reading “Reverse: on episode 9~10, final thoughts”

Fight for My Way: on episode 7~10

“We were always short on time. We wake up earlier than anyone and we sleep later, but we never had enough time. We lived harder than anyone, but our resumes don’t show a thing. They seem to be everything of our history. It makes me mad and upset.”

Gahh, how i love this drama’s slice of life parts — the pangs are so spot-on. How i wish Show would focus more on this element instead of the ridiculous rivalry and annoying love interests. Unfortunately, that’s what we’re getting, and that’s where the story is going. Continue reading “Fight for My Way: on episode 7~10”

Reverse: on episode 7~8

“I always had a premonition that some day, the worst situation would happen. Even though we should have been prepared for retribution to hit us, the truth that was finally revealed was far too cruel.”

I should’ve seen the signs. I should’ve learned by now that in mystery dramas, the least likely one, the least suspicious one, the closest one to the characters… is the culprit. Continue reading “Reverse: on episode 7~8”
