Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: A dragon appears in modern day Japan, causing a great uproar in Tokyo. On the other hand, at Mitsuyama City located at the foot of Mt Fuji, Yoshio (Yasuda Shota), Kenji (Endo Kaname) and Tamotsu (Honda Chikara), members of the young people?s association, talk idly at the cafe where Yoko (Renbutsu Misako) works. Yoshio, who had gone to buy a game, obtains a mysterious, old document at a secondhand bookstore. It is written literature about dragons. They learn that: warriors of the light had previously destroyed a dragon, Mitsuyama City is the town of their descendents, and a sword and crystal are needed to vanquish a dragon. And, the descendents of the light, who are the new heroes, have coats of arms. A good look reveals that Kenji and the others have them too. The four of them wonder if it is a joke even as they search for the crystal. A variety of reasons make them decide to destroy the dragon despite their conflicts. The spirit of adventure which they had almost forgotten, blossoms, and they take action, for world peace and regional devevlopment.
Live-action Warriors of Light
Yes a drama for gamers! I had my doubts, but which is all the more fun and lighthearted, twisting out that sense of adventure as you go along with the story in scepticism/skepticism. The plot isn’t too deep but simple and tugs out a little side smile and excitement in you if you’ve played any JRPGs.
If you like Final Fantasy you will love this! This is like a live-action for gamers. The look and feel of the drama is a little cheesy but I think it fits just right. Little touch of comic and exaggerated expression brings out this drama. It made me imagine how JRPGs characters does it in real live which makes it more hilarious in a good way.
The only downside is I’d wish there were some good music accompaniments to go with the four Warriors of Light concept, which would have made it a notch up for this fantasy drama. I give it an overall 8 as I really enjoyed it. but I give them producers a perfect 10 for their guts to even trying to pull this off!
