Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in Okinawa SP: Air Date Confirmed + Trailer Released
So it turns out that Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in Okinawa is actually a drama special (abbreviated SP). Usually jdrama specials are one episode long, but the length of the episode is longer than a standard drama episode. This drama special covers Naoki & Kotoko’s honeymoon and will be airing before the actual second season, Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in Tokyo begins. Just recently the official FB page for Itazura na Kiss 2 posted an update saying that the SP will air on September 12, 2014 on the Fuji TV channel. It will later be released on DVD on September 17, 2014. The theme song is “KISS KISS KISS,” sung by Cyntia.
So, just to make it clear, there are:
- Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in Okinawa — a drama SPECIAL, airing before the second season
- Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in Tokyo — the drama sequel, continuing after the special episode.
The official Youtube channel uploaded a trailer for the drama SP! I included a very loose paraphrase of most of the dialogue in the trailer. Don’t count on me for accuracy though. >_>””
“Irie-kun! I love you!
Yes! We’re on a honeymoon!
I’ve always always loved him, Irie-kun!
Are you ok? Don’t become a ‘Narita-rikon’* ne! [*Narita rikon = a type of divorce where the couple divorces right after their honeymoon]
At this rate, if nothing happens..!
No! Don’t touch her, Irie-kun!
You married a doctor, didn’t you? We can’t be together. [not sure if I got this part right]
I love you.
I won’t forget this day for the rest of my life. Definitely.”
