    • Congrats MatsuJun! XD

    • tamu

      ah Jun and Ohno drama rating is no1 and 2,,
      congratss

    • Midna

      Do you hear that? It’s the sound of Arashi slaying!!!

    • Ftu

      Congrats 99.9 and Sekamuzu!

      Sekamuzu would’ve been better without ep.8 filler but more insight into Misaki’s feelings towards Reji.

      • mikamika

        Sekamuzu would’ve been better with half of the script cut :p I liked it, but there was too much wtf!? for me to really enjoy it

        • Ftu

          I think the script is not perfect but it had some great moments (eg: isanami couple, the slight argument in the final episode) and i did enjoy some wtf scenes (eg: the bed, miura). I did hated the wtf moments when Reiji was at loggerheads with Misaki but it was effective in moving the plot forward. The only moment that I think the wtf!? was really WTF?! and unacceptable was when they pull a fake love triangle (muraoki told Wada she likes Reiji and Reiji creepy need for Muraoki’s foot massages)

          The real problem with Sekamuzu was the pacing (first 3 episodes was a chore & filler was unnecessary) and recycling Kaibutsukun for Reiji for me. Overall Sekamuzu was good but I’ve seen much better romcom. Kekkon Dekinai Otoko which had almost the same plot was better in terms of acting & script.

          • mikamika

            Lol, I absolutely HATED the bed. It annoyed me so badly, I postponed watching the rest of the show for several weeks.
            I’m not a huge fan of rom-com but there are some nice ones; unfortunately this is not one of them. I only watched it till the end for Ohno.

        • light

          Reiji was awful, i couldn’t really root for them. And the Kaibutsu-kun acting was too much lol

      • aaa

        i don’t know but in my eyes until the last ep of Sekamuzu, Misa san still don’t like Rei san…she look she forced her heart to accept him…

        • Ftu

          That’s the problem with having so little pov from Misaki’s perspective. As someone who has similar personality as Misaki, some of Reiji difficult behaviour resonates with me so it’s easy for me to imagine Misa-san really did fell for Rei.

        • I feel the same too. I wish i could see Misa san has kind of “girly” expression when she’s in love
          But well you can really expect romantic scene from Japanese drama

          • Ftu

            “girly” expression? Nope. A person like Misa irl won’t express herself like that and I appreciate they didn’t go cliche like that. The problem is not how she expresses herself but how the writers and directors neglected to further explore her views.

            • it’s not that i want Misaki turned 180 degree but i really dont have any idea what’s on Misaki’s mind toward Reiji. I think just a little smile in the ending when Reiji was going to the interview would answer my question IMO

              • Ftu

                But she did smile…? You can replay the pre-interview scene at Gosuke elevator to confirm it. What kind of expression do you expect from her?
                I do agree that they should write more about misaki’s feelings towards reiji but changing her mannerism because of love is just cliche and out of character.

                • My point is just simply can’t feel the love toward Reiji. That’s it. Maybe you have your own theory but well everyone has their own taste and perspective.

                  • Ftu

                    Nah, you just hoping her to be somebody else if its according to your taste lol. If I wishing for a stereotypical romcom girly character, I’ll rewatch Ishihara Satomi recent romcoms (& she’s excellent playing those parts).
                    I simply like Misaki as she is but with more scenes focusing on her pov. That’s the only way a stoic character like Misaki will be able to satisfy those who expected more expressive love from her. Anymore expressiveness would be out of character. Instead of her pov, a whole episode was wasted on a love triangle with Muraoki.

                    • well you have your own theory actually. But did you really feel that Misaki in love with Reiji?
                      Because i’m not really sure about that. The only scene that shown is just her image of Reiji is similiar with her grandpa. That’s it.
                      We don’t really know what’s on Misaki’s mind about Reiji.
                      My point is simple as that.
                      But i do agree with that Muraoki love triangle. It seems to be forced. And really wasted of time.

    • mikamika

      The only thing bothering me is that 99.9 didn’t get over the magic 20%… They would’ve deserved it!

    • me

      JunToshi is in da house yo! XDD
      congrats to 99.9 & SekaMuzu team! ^^

    • light

      Still waiting for the subs of 99.9 last ep, but i really enjoyed the drama =)

      • Midna

        sameeeeeee OTL

      • Guest

        Tbh after watching the last ep I was like “huh? that’s it??” lol but that and the way the cast and staff have been talking left me a bit hopeful for at least a special. I enjoyed it too, I’m just bitter we didn’t get an Arashi cameo.. but maybe we will if they do make the sp LOL
        (it’s funny though, personally I looked forward to Sekamuzu and thought I’d just check Jun’s drama out bc of him and end up dropping it but ended up watching it for the drama itself and dropping Sekamuzu.. ha)

        • light

          A SP would be nice, i would also like a second season =)
          Media hyped Sekamuzu so much before the airing but I was disappointed in the end, while i really liked 99.9.

      • Historia Lenz

        Hi, where do you watch it with subs? I watched the first few episodes in raw T.T. Thanks! :)

        • aaa

          try dramacool…if you want the simple subs…
          if you want the subs with the translation note,there is many LJ that subbed this drama

          • Historia Lenz

            Thanks! It’s really hard to gain access to LJ communities, so I kinda gave up on them :)

      • Esha

        where do u watch it with subs? pls let us know..

        • light

          I take them from livejournal, but communities has become a lot stricter since people kept on stealing their subs and pass them off as theirs , so i’d rather not say the name of the community sorry…
          I think you can also find them on streaming sites though.

          • Esha

            that’s fine :)

      • kokoo

        chibimui-sensei has completed the subs tho

    • Samira Sango Mahrach

      I like Ohno but his acting is just a big meh.. I prefer him as singer or entertainer

      • Ftu

        Ohno is a wonderful actor actually but this wasn’t his best. He was excellent in Kagiheya, Maou, Kaibutsukun and his stage plays.

        The Japanese audience thought this kind of unnecessary ott acting and cliche reactions are all the shitz though. I’m sure he’ll get acting awards for this instead of Matsumoto Jun for the best lead actor category. Personally I enjoyed Jun portrayal as Miyama better than Ohno as Reiji.

        • aaa

          yup…i feel the same too…Ohno will get the lead actor award…
          rating is not all even though Jun did really good job…
          i still have Miyama sindrome…

        • Samira Sango Mahrach

          I also enjoyed Jun more..

    • Besides Jun and Ohno’s dramas, Fukigena Kajitsu was my shit.
