Finished Nishiogikubo Mitsuboshi Youshudou, nice short drama that is quite relaxing. Also started Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai, and loving Takahashi Issei in this.

Edit: finished Kishibe Rohan, very good if you enjoy weird stuff, and Takahashi was awesome in this. Iitoyo Marie was adorable and the music was very good.

Finally finished My Daughter can't get a boyfriend starring Kanno Miho (Aoi) and Hamabe Minami (Sora), more than a month after it ended.

Overall it was enjoyable for me, even though it didn't seem well received from the comments I read. Most of the criticism were aimed at the writing, and maybe how Kanno Miho's character seemed a bit clownish at times. I thought the writing is good, I liked almost all the characters, they were all interesting in their own ways. The highlight for most viewers was the budding romance between Sora and Hikaru, even though Sora was unaware of it until almost the end. I really enjoyed their relationship too but central to the entire drama is the mother-daughter relationship between the two leads. How they are so open and honest, how they banter and understand each other, etc. I thought that was very heart-warming, as is the support network of friends around them. Toward the end, I thought maybe this would have been better if it's not a comedy. Even though the lighter moments were enjoyable, the best moments were the quiet ones I felt. For the majority of the drama, it centred around Sora more than Aoi but in the last episode Aoi took centre stage. Was Kitagawa Eriko talking through Aoi about herself at the end?... It didn't come together perfectly in the last episode but there were definitely some food for thoughts. p.s. Hamabe Minami is very cute in glasses. ^^

I tried a few first episodes of the new season of dramas. Nothing really stood out unlike last season. I was already a big fan of Hirose Suzu, so I really enjoyed watching her in Nemesis. Was looking forward to Renai Mangaka, but Suzuki Ryohei's role felt underweighted and the dynamics/nuances between the leads were underdeveloped. Hopefully that will improve with time.

Kikazaru koi episode 1 was very easy to watch, unlike most other episode 1 this season. I think it's the most promising of the lot. But I haven't tried the one starring Matsu Takako yet, that one has a lot of good reviews.
