Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Higashi Ko, a third-year student at Karasumori High School, is a devil who strikes fear in the hearts of people. One day, Ko is told by his form teacher that he has to participate in a club activity in order to make up for the lack of second-year students. The short-tempered Ko cannot last long in whatever he does. At that moment, he learns that Satonaka Mari, the beautiful transfer student in his class, has joined the female rhythmic sports gymnastics club. He joins the male rhythmic sports gymnastics club, a club activity with very few people under the captain, Takenaka Yuta. They are ridiculed by the coach of the female rhythmic sports gymnastics club, and others, and are also hardly allowed to use the gym. However, when a sixth boy joins the club, Yuta decides to take part in a team competition with his long-sought six members ?
I love this drama; especially since it has so many of my favorite characters. Seto Koji is amazing in his role and I’m so surprised that he has many other roles with Yamamoto Yusuke. Yusuke plays his character so great, I think it’s actually hilarious everytime he freaks out. But, I also think it’s cute how he is a caring person and always worries about his friends’ well-being before his own; it’s the first time I’ve seen him so fired up.
I don’t know how school life is in Japan, but the mundane realism is interesting enough for me to want to watch as many episodes in one night. The struggles and problems the character face are actually pretty similar to the problems we face in everyday lives. Or at least similar enough in context. But what really caught me were the funny acts strewn here and there; I love re-playing the parts over and over again just to laugh out loud one more time. Some of the characters I hated in the beginning of the drama, but I’ve grown to accept them because they’re kind of needed in their role. I’m glad I stumbled onto this drama, and I hope that the episodes come out with subs as soon as possible.
I also sometimes wonder if this is more geared towards the male audience because sometimes in the drama, there are some scenes too cheesy to be focused on the male gender, but then there are some scenes that aren’t really geared towards the female gender. Then, there are those fighting and smoking scenes that aren’t really family friendly…...
But either way, I love this drama, and I hope it runs a little longer than most dramas should :D.
