|Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]|
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I liked Orange Days, as it dealt with situations that many can us can relate. And, I can definitely relate myself to the situation Kai is facing, "Stuck between a college student and an outstanding member of society." However, one thing kept on popping into my head, while watching this drama. It reminded me of a modern day "Asunaro Hakusho". The story line may be slightly different, but the setting (three guys and two girls becoming best friends, during their college years) and other situations in the story line are very similar to "Asunaro Hakusho".

In my opinion, this was the best Kimura drama that I have ever seen. Even though, I like Good Luck! a lot, Pride somehow managed to display more of Kimura's amazing acting talents compared to his other dramas. In Pride, Kimura successfully portrayed an emotionally complex character. Apart from the typical confused-with-love type of character, he successful transformed himself into a captian, who possesses great leadership skills. And on top of that all, he aslo showed us his ability to do comedic, edgier and tougher roles. Pride is definitely a must see!!!
