Majo no jouken [魔女の条件] Just beautiful *Spoiler alert* [Rating: 10/10] While I was a bit hesitant at the thought of watching a jdrama about a teacher falling in love with her student, I decided to give this a go and I'm so glad I did. It is by far one of the best and most romantic series I've ever seen!
I was unable to stop watching this, anxious to know what was going to happen in the next episode so I spent the whole weekend glued to my TV. The whole thing was perfect, until of course the ending. I wouldn't exactly call it an anti-climax but I will say that it was a bit strange. Before reading up on MNJ on the net, I honestly thought that Michi woke up, which is perhaps why I found Hikaru's expression weird coz I thought he would be a little bit more excited to see his true love awake at last.
Now that I've read some of the reviews and some say that it was a dream, I had to rewatch it and I honestly dont think it was a dream at all. Like I wrote earlier, I personally think that she really did wake up. How could they go through all the hardships and obstacles only for Michi to remain unconscious at the very end?? Furthermore, I think the final image of Hikaru and Michi minus the shackles also indicates that the 2 of them can finally be happy together after overcoming the final obstacle (Michi being unconscious) when she woke up.
Anyway, regardless of whether the ending is a dream or not, MNJ is a definite must-watch. Even though this is just a drama, watch it with an open mind and allow it to teach you one of the ultimate lessons in life - that true love can conquer age differences, disapproving parents and rules set by society and prevail in the end.
