“In the end, going back is just an infinite loop of regrets.”
This show really steps up its game toward the finale, changing up the game and bringing in unexpected development. While i hope the variations were introduced much earlier, i couldn’t hold it against DomeKisu since the latter half is more interesting than the first half, which is my preferred scenario.

The impression i have of ninja (or “shinobi”, the term used in this movie) is similar to secret agents. A nimble and highly skilled one. But Shinobi no Kuni paints them in different light hence showing a different side of them, something you’ve probably never seen before.

My first ever blog post about an ad. Because this one is just too precious. ^^ Continue reading “Nino’s dream house?”
My likes and dislikes about this drama haven’t changed much in the past few weeks — frivolous, fun but also quite predictable and repetitive — that i’m happy with the development we get in these two episodes. The tables start turning again, but with a much higher stakes. We’re heading to the final two weeks so it’s about time Eight lost some battle. Continue reading “Todome no Kiss: on episode 7~8”
Unlike Korean dramas that can have many (sometimes above 10) OSTs per title, Japanese dramas usually only have one or two theme songs per title. And a bunch of instrumentals. K-dramas have their own set of instrumentals too, but J-doramas’ can be as iconic as the theme song. Continue reading “4 earworm OSTs from winter 2018 J-doramas”
“Oh, I’ll seize my light~”
New year, new single.
Fortunately, unlike last year, we don’t have to wait until April for Arashi’s first single of the year since 99.9 Season II airs this winter. And unlike PawaPara, the single is released in time for the Winter Olympics.

“We have to make an effort if we want to change our life whether you do Repeat or not.”
When the Selected 8 was given a second shot at life through Repeat, they must have thought it’s once in a lifetime chance to change their past, especially with the lack of rules and restrictions. But after hearing news of fellow Repeaters’ uncanny deaths and possibly being the next target, i wonder if they think their lives pre-Repeat were better. Continue reading “Repeat: on episode 3~6”
To marry the 10-billion-yen heiress has been Eight’s goal from episode 1, the road to which has been a less turbulent one since Kazuma was out of the picture… until another opposition appears to block his attempts, that is Takauji. Hence the beginning of the love triangle… between Eight, Takauji, and Namiki Group. Heh Continue reading “Todome no Kiss: on episode 5~6”
Honestly, i never heard of this movie before, even though big names like Oguri Shun and Kitagawa Keiko were in it. But this strangely titled movie kept coming up on my timeline recently, especially about how much it made them cry, so i looked it up out of curiosity. Besides the weird title, it also has a confusing synopsis with its use of first person.
Reading people’s accounts on this live-action made me ready myself to an emotional watch; and while i did cry toward the end, i think it is more of a beautiful and touching story instead of a tearjerker. Continue reading “[Movie] I Want to Eat Your Pancreas”
