I Do Want A “Mekakushi no Kuni” Live Action #1

The awesomeness and the subtleties of the story still linger in my memories. I don’t know about you, but I do want Arou, Kanade, Namiki, and Someya Kaichou in a live action dorama. One of the reason is, I want to see Namiki and Kaichou “doki-doki” scene!! *tehehe

Okay, since I’ve never heard rumour about it, I decide to make my own “live action project”. Mmm, maybe “make my own” phrase is a lil bit off, cause -of course- I’m not a producer nor someone in Japanese TV bussiness, but at least, I want to express my dream here in my blog.

Seigi no Mikata (JPN, 2008)

If you’re an Indonesian, I believe you are familiar with “Bawang Merah, Bawang Putih” (Onion and Garlic? Hahahaha, I can’t find the best translation for this) story: a woman who is soooo cruel to her kind sister. Well, this J-dorama simply has that theme, but since this is dorama (and adapted from manga with same title), not sinetron, this sister slavery story turned hilarious!

Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (JPN, 2007)

If you ask me about which dorama is being overrated by fans? No doubt, I’ll answer Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (Hana Kimi). Yup, even though this dorama has flying colors in term of rating (Visit this site and you’ll find fans adore it and simply giving 9 to 10 star way too easily), I guess this dorama failed in keeping the main story arc as main interest. However, this is only my personal opinion. If you want to know why, you may read my review below.
