Awesome drama is awesome.  
Now I know I'm already 24897923502513 years late for this, but I just finished watching Ryuusei no Kizuna yesterday! I was so very, very impressed. The storyline knows not to mock the viewers' intelligence and I'm utterly pleased by that. Hm, wait, this warrants giant text.

Ryuusei no Kizuna is one of the best dramas I've ever seen EVER. 8Dv

I haven't seen a lot, but still. O:

So anyway, it had my brain cells working ALL THE TIME. I'm glad I guessed right most of the time, though. You know, the sudden turn in events? Me and Adrianne were always into serious!discussion mode and pausing our streaming every now and then to think about the probable suspect/who gets caught/whatever. XD

And Kaname Jun = ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

WTHHHH, I died seeing him act like a dork. I mean, I first saw him on RESCUE (yes, I watched RESCUE first *fail*) and seeing him very serious with Katsuragi, I was like, "NOOOO WHO IS THIS I SEE?!?!"

Hm, what else. Ah, I liked it that they didn't focus on the possible love angle between Taisuke and Shizuna--because that would've been kind of wrong (even if they weren't siblings and stuff). They left obvious hints here and there, sappy moments but nothing too heavy. Unlike here, when given that circumstance, dramas tend to swerve to an inappropriate, not to mention liberated, feel of "I WANT TO BED YOU BECAUSE WE'RE NOT SIBLINGS AFTER ALL". Such a sad thing.

So returning to Yukinari and Shizuna... they were just asjkdsahkfsfskl;; I mean, even when I don't write het now I still do like het when I find cute and believable ones. XDv Such an adorable coupling. 8D

Admittedly, even when I initially watched it just to see Ryo's performance, I was definitely awed by Nino. I mean, he can act using just his eyes! It was... somehow scary. And his eyes could turn from an emotion to another really, really quickly! Or portray two different emotions at the same time. I found that fact really awesome. Even when he doesn't put in gestures, his eyes alone tell you exactly what his character is feeling--now that's what you call acting. Now I finally understand what Ryo and Yamapi lacks when it comes to the acting department. D:

On another note, I've started watching 1 Liter of Tears dubbed on one of our local channels. I don't really like how they got straight to the point with the problem of the story, but uh, it can't be helped, I guess, considering the limited timeslot networks allot for their shows. Hm, the voices for the mom, dad, doctor, the friend and the little girl were okay, but Ako's voice is just horrible. D: Haruto's and Aya's are so-so. But the most horrible of all, is well, the freaking theme song and it makes me want to stab the TV every time it plays. "Walang hanggan~" WTEFFF, seriously. ;_______;

Bakit ngayon mo lang pinanood? HAHAHA. :D I completely agree--RnK is definitely one of the best. At least in my opinion. :D Maybe I'm just a huge crybaby, but I became teary-eyed and emotional while watching some of the episodes. *__* Oh, and I haven't read the original novel yet, but it seems to be just as good. <3

Hay, you're right about the implied "sibling" attraction. But I think Taisuke and Shizuna have a stronger bond as siblings. I just don't find it a good idea to alter that bond. ~_~

If you watched Ryuusei for Ryo, I was more excited to see Nino. (Awww, gomen, Ryo-chan. But Nino IS my JE sanban (behind Tacchon and Yamapi) after all. :D) NINOOOOOO *flails* I have always been thinking of the exact same thing: Nino CAN act with just his eyes. And I always seem to forget that he's Nino when I watch his doramas. He plays each character so perfectly. <3 That's why he's my favorite JE actor. <3

Walang hanggan ako'y sa'yo~~~~
HAHAHAHA. Yeah, the dubbing was... okay. I just wish that they didn't cut so many scenes. And that they used Only Human as theme song instead. *sighs*
i like crispy ones with cheese dips ♥takeoutfries on May 27th, 2009 08:36 am (UTC)
LOL. I became teary-eyed din--but that was for the last part. When SPOILER!Nino was hesitantly pointing his gun at Kashiwabara.END SPOILER!

I feel the same way. My sister and I were discussing about how it'd turn out between the siblings and Shizuna once she finds out. Like who'd find it awkward and stuff. And we found ourselves wishing that nothing would change. XDD I just don't really like stories like that.D:

Well I mean, I didn't watch it because I was Ryo!biased, rofl. I'd only do that for Massu, lol. I watched it because I wanted to see how he'd act in it. And because we were already tired seeing him in his "kakkoi" roles--for a change, I guess. So yeah, seeing him in a sort of dorky and *ahem*stupid*ahem* character made us wonder if he was even acting at all. The scenes, especially for the earlier episodes, had a lot of RL feel, so. XD

NINO IS JUST AWESOME. There were times when I'd feel pity then suddenly have it into fear--just because of Nino's eyes. Totally scary. D:

Yeah. I already cried just because of the scenes, and when they'd play Only Human, my tears would fall even harder. I wish GMA didn't have to change it. Then add to that cutting the ending credits. That was a nice touch, seeing the real Aya. ):

Yeah, that part too. *_* May isa pang magandang part e. Nakakaiyak 'yung scene na nagsu-switch 'yung actors between adult and child, tapos ine-enact nung mga adult actors 'yung scene nung bata pa sila. 'Yung gusto ni Ryo na dalhin 'yung laruan nya pero 'di pwede, tapos ipinagpipilitan parin niya. XD Basta, hirap i-explain. :D

Dorky!Ryo is so fun to watch. :D And yeah, minsan nakakaumay na si Kakkoi!Ryo. Scary!Ryo in Last Friends was, well, scary. XD It's hard to guess which is closer to RL Ryo. XD Pero I agree--dun sa earlier episodes (like the "She's selling condoms!" part), he seemed more natural. :D

EXACTLYYY *_* Especially when he acted as an autistic person in Marathon and as someone who has cerebral palsy in Door to Door, grabe. You'd forget that he's a JE idol. :D

Argh, hindi na ako nakakapanood ng Ichi Rittoru sa GMA. Nakakatulugan ko e. XD So hindi ko pa alam kung maiiyak ako. Pero factor talaga 'yung Only Human e. XD
