Stand Up ~Review

63

Japan’s American Pie. Its highly entertaining and the humour was something I totally understood that I couldn’t stop laughing.

I have to totally admit, that the only reason I watched this was because of the main actors; Ninomiya Kazurani, Narimiya Hiroki and Oguri Shun. I can say that Yampi was chosen to play one the really quiet and train spotting freak that he was able to play with his low action skills.

The story is about 4 boys at school are the last virgins and together, they make up a plan to get rid of their virginities. But of course it doesn’t all go well and it takes them a while to finally make that romantic summer vacation happen. There really is a lot of hilarious moments, in total Japanese style and I just couldn’t stop watching. The only downside, is the female lead, just didn’t really fit and she seem like any love interest from the main four boys.

But overall, the cast was well chosen and played the characters well. I really recommend you watch it and if you are ever feeling down, they will totally make you laugh and feel better.

Quartet ~ Review

I was really intrigued to see 松下優也 play a lead role in this drama and it didn’t disappoint!

This drama is one where 松下 finally début  as an actor. Its a great watch and its funny to see him play a rather dumb delinquent, if you will. But it was a shame the episodes were short.

I didn’t really know what to expect and I had read much about it apart from  松下優也 starring in it. It was great to see some fight scenes but I was watching a really low quality video, so I couldn’t see much detail. But I admit in places, the story line wasn’t that interesting, I didn’t really see why Kuchinawa chose them apart from all being linked to hating a certain person, but I guess they didn’t really want to dive into a load of side stories and make it worse.

Overall, its a good drama to watch, but I wish it was a little longer or possibly have a second season because the ending wasn’t really satisfying to watch.
