Hero I love this show! gotta love Kuryu's TV shopping addiction
Long vacation [ロングバケーション] This is dorama at it's finest.. A+ cast (kimitaku, matsu, takenouchi) great story, and not sure how it's filmed but it certainly looks different than the filming of any other dorama. the music is really really cool, one of the best soundtracks for a show ever.. loved all the piano music as well.. oh and matsu looks damn cute.
Abe Hiroshi [阿部寛] Very funny actor, always seems to bring a good dose a humor to all dorama's he is in.
Hirosue Ryoko [広末涼子] My favorite dorama actress... every role i've seen her play has been exceptional (especially Yuki in Summer Snow). And who can resist her looks? she's cute and has one of the nicest smiles i've ever seen.
Itsumo futari de [いつもふたりで] Good, could of been great. [Rating: 8/10] This show had a lot of promise in my opinion, but after Kashiwabara Takashi left after episode 2, it felt thrown together messingly. Don't get me wrong, I liked his replacement (who's name i'd like to know) but I felt him (kashiwabara) and Matsu's character, Mizuho, could of been a better romance than her and Sakaguchi Kenji's role as Kenta. Kenta and Mizuho to me were just best friends, and I felt it shouldn't of even been anything more than that (though I enjoyed her being jealous). One character I felt that could of been gone from this show completely was Hasegawa Kyoko "Yoko" I thought her acting was really plain and boring. She should of been something more of a smaller role, and people who I thought were interesting and talented like Mizuho's friend who was played by Sato Hitomi *I think* given more than a small supporting role. Another good thing about this show was the beautiful women in it... Matsu, Sato, "Chika" kenta's brother's girlfriend, and Yoko's nurse coworker.. the kinda taller woman. I thought Fuwa was a pretty interesting fellow as well, too bad in the later episodes he sorta faded away. In closing, this was a pretty good drama, but if it was in the right hands it could of been something special.
