The teasers have been released, and it’s clear that whomever styled Yamapi is going ALL OUT in making him looking as much as young Kimu Taku as possible, with the same liony mane.
Though in the case of Yamapi, it’s like Simba versus Mufasa, no comparison.
For once I want him to just give up and do what he does best – be his weird self.
Granted, i did wonder about the whole Rinko/Hayasaka coupleship, if it was possibly too soon a happy ending for the lead girl, cuz anything could happen in the remaining two episodes.
My Koala sense tells me the dorama is bound to be dull as dishwater, with plenty of life affirming lessons at the end of each episode and zero romance to be found anywhere except under the carpet if I look hard enough.
By not stoking the odd-couple antics to a heady, comical level, Hiroki lets his winsome protags gradually settle into a cozy rhythm, synching with each other in mind and body, as when Tsugumi rides home with Kaieda on his bicycle after they’ve attended a summer fair together.Hayasaka has stayed in the background for most of the show’s run that him stepping up to the front and sweeping Rinko off her feet seems unthinkable, but he did it anyway. In retrospect, this development could be the most natural friends-to-lovers progression, also the one that came full circle to the girls’ earliest rue about passing a plate on the revolving sushi bar thinking it would surely come back.Hayasaka was picked up along the way, but he’s also the one who returned.Furthermore, it was Rinko who made a move on him first, found him cute (which appears to be quite a big statement when it comes to a potential significant other in J-dorama world) in many ways, and decided to not let him get away the second time.Spending time together brings comfort and joy to both parties, who deem this kind of ordinary relationship suit their age and dating style.
