What you've been up to ? I 've been very busy with work lately but it's okay , I  have the best solution ever to prevent me from stress. It's Japanese Drama / Dorama .Yeap, I'm so into them these past few years.Why on earth am I so late lol? I found the answer myself is maybe just because I'm too stuck with Korean Dramas till the point I'm getting bored but I still wanna fill up my entertainment needs so I decided to take a look at Japanese dramas.
And wow never in my mind ,I'm so hooked with Dorama! I still love Korean Dramas tho.. but IMO, I find Japanese Dramas is amusing .The plot is funnier and more straightforward. Plus I can always updated myself with current Japanese fashion trends just because mostly, every actresses dressed so kawaii!

Here I am gonna share my top 5 Favorite Japanese Drama (till now). Note that,it mostly in Romance - Comedy genre.So.. Enjoy~

In her third year of high school, she decides to write him a love letter, but is rejected instantly.

Kotoko (Honoka Miki) loved Naoki (Yuki Furukawa) for 6 years and finally married him.Now, Kotoko transfers to the department of nursing in her studies and struggles -*Source

Itazura na Kiss is actually the first J- Drama that got me  and I can re watch for zillion times! That's practically because I'm a Itakiss series fans and have love the Taiwanese version before.The J-version is originally aired in 1996 but they decided to make remake at 2013 .Surprisingly,the remake version is is more popular . Not to mention the handsome Furukawa Yuki who I think could portray bests ,cold but sweet person at the same time; Naoki Irie. There's also a Korean version of this manga based drama but back to the country of its origin,Japanese ver is better and less cheesy.Ah ,I'm also intrigued to applause the styling crew for always prevail,create perfect OOTD  especially Kotoko.

2. DATE : WHAT'S IT'S LIKE TO BE IN LOVE
 デート~恋とはんなものから
Main Cast: Anne Watanabe , Hiroki Hasegawa, Yuko Nakajima
Number of Episodes : 10
Watch it  :  Here

S Y N O P S I S
 
Yoriko Yabushita (Anne Watanabe)works at a Yokohama research laboratory. She tracks trends in relation to macroeconomics. She is 29-years-old and enthusiastic about her work.

Meanwhile, Takumi Taniguchi (Hiroki Hasegawa) is 35-years-old and unemployed. He did graduate from college, but he spends his days reading books and listening to music. He's not interested in dating or getting married, because he knows he lacks a source of income. He lives with his mother and knows that when she passes away, he can't continue his current lifestyle. Takumi Taniguchi then decides to find a woman who is capable of supporting him financially. Both of them think of marriage as a contract, begin to date with the goal of getting married - *Source
 
The drama is literally the most unique romance comedy drama I've ever watch. Like how can, the main character itself is probably is someone who are considered as anti heroine in social life ( read; a nerd and a neet/otaku) but in the end,Love wins and the moral of this drama is to make us realize that there's many type of  person in this world and still you can be proud with your color and find your happiness and true love. The only thing that I criticized from this drama is probably the goes-back-and-forth plot in each episodes that got me confused if I skipped some part.Nevertheless,the fresh jokes inside never fail to make me laugh till cry !

It's the newest drama addiction just because the series is just got ended last December in Japan and everybody's been into this drama lately.Yeap that's maybe because the two main cast make a great chemistry.What a perfect match,I ship them so much! The plot is somehow resemble with Itakiss,an unrequited love that turn into happiness but in more realistic way.There's sure some bitter scene where Tomohisa character,Takane is annoying for being such a creep and too possessive over Junko  and I hate it but finally in the end I can understand why he did so.Ps. Somehow,Tomohisa Yamashita remind me of Jung Yong Hwa from CN BLUE. Anybody agree? kkk~

After a failed relationship, Nobuko puts her all into dieting and finds success. She begins to work for her favorite fashion magazine, and just when her new life is falling into place she meets Taiichi, a handsome patissier. However, when Nobuko eats cakes, she can't stop - moreover, if she gains weight, she'll be fired. In the end, will Nobuko rebound...? - *Source
This drama is actually have a good plot but what suck is they ruined at the conflict where it got too beat around the bush.It makes the drama a bit boring but thanks to the good ending tho. I feel like it is not waste to watch 10 long episodes drama who feel like 20-long episodes.Jokes inside are rather childish but natural. I love the positive Nobuko character is so pure yet very sanguine-st. Her cheerful personality also drives positive vibes around the character.  At the end,It's not that really addicting drama but I still enjoy each episodes anyway so It's still considered as my favorite :)

This drama is a love comedy that follows 4 very different types of guys who grew up in a very normal household, a first child, a middle child, a youngest child, and an only child. This drama portrays the transformation of the guys as they meet someone and begin to realize their own weaknesses and their strengths, and are able to find true happiness. -*Source
KOIKE TEPPEI AND HIS CUTENESS IS LEVEL 999++
I cannot hide anymore,it's because of him ,I watched this drama.Beyond that,the drama is actually pretty amusing too.Especially at the first part where it tell the story of the 4 heroine childhood lolololol
It gives me warm,familiar jokes based on fact that can be found only in family.I would highly recommend this drama If you need short time-entertainment.Maybe when you're boring in the middle of journey like car,bus or train.
