[Drama] Age of Youth 2

You know my stance on sequels, but if there is a drama that needs to have a sequel, it will be Age of Youth. From the plot point alone. I mentioned that it would benefit from having more episodes, and having a second season seems like a logical move to tie up some of its major loose ends, so i was thrilled when it did happen. Because i didn’t think it would Continue reading “[Drama] Age of Youth 2”

Kahogo no Kahoko: on episode 9~10, final thoughts

“No matter how tough it is, sleep properly, eat properly, don’t let go off the hand of the ones you love.”

It’s easy to say it or promise to follow it in joyous moment, but only during hard times are one’s perseverance and commitment put to test.

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. Continue reading “Fight for My Way: on episode 11~16, final thoughts”
