All this while, I’ve been trying to figure out whether Osozaki no Himawari is a good, above average, or great drama. Although I have enjoyed the previous episodes overall, I was sorta stuck between the good/above average view of Osozaki. Only in eps 6-7 are my feelings of “I LOVE OSOZAKI NO HIMAWARI” confirmed. I absolutely love it because of all its beautifully written and portrayed characters.
If you watched the first couple episodes and was sorta interested, but not fully invested yet, I’d advise you to watch the next few episodes. Episodes 1-2 were enjoyable for me, but I also admit they were kinda slow because of all the character set-up. Starting from ep3, Osozaki no Himawari picks up it space and seems to have really found its niche.
It has been forever since I last posted (about a drama) because I am in a horrible drama SLUMP. But thankfully there is at least one jdrama that I am now looking forward to more and more–Osozaki no Himawari, with IKUTA TOMA. It is a great slice-of-life/human drama focusing on the significance of human relations in a small rural city. It also tells the story of how the main characters find ways to make the ‘flowers bloom in their lives,’ hence the title “Late Blooming Sunflower –My life renewed-“.
-Quartet ep4: Seems like the drama is focusing on one character's story in each episode. Now that we've gotten to see each main character's background story, I wonder what direction the drama will take. Each episode leaves me still impressed with each lead actor...seriously. Matsuda Ryuhei is 100% Beppu here. I even forget that Beppu is acted by Matsuda Ryuhei when watching his character!
-Kamenashi Kazuya, Kimura Fumino, and Yamashita Tomohisa will be starring in an upcoming spring jdrama called Boku, Unmei no Hito desu. Kamenashi and Yamashita are reuniting again, after their popular roles in the high school drama Nobuta wo Produce.
-EVERYONE. I highly recommend watching the Taiwanese romance movie Our Times, starring Vivian Sung, Dino Lee, and Darren Wang. It is TOOOOO GOOD. It's your usual high school-first-love-story but it does it SO WELL. GOOO WATCH IT.
-On an indefinite hiatus.
