Last week I found myself watching a lot of Japanese shows. I’d like to think it has helped me get better at my listening skills although it probably needs a lot more work than this.
The list of the things I watched are:
This is a recent drama that talks about the blossoming love between a vibrant, working woman and a quiet, composed monk. I was so surprised by this concept that I had to watch it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Satomi Ishihara(石原さとみ) was such a pleasure to watch throughout the drama. I’ve watched one of her dramas before and I’m glad I’ve watched this one too.
- Parasyte: Part 1
I was very curious to know how the live action version of one of my favourite anime would look like. I think it was well made. Although the guy who played the Izumi-kun tried his best, he kinda overdid it. The story has been slightly changed to keep up with the time constraints. But since all major events were present (unlike in 進撃の巨人）I’m not complaining.
This has got to be the most amazing film series ever. I had the opportunity to watch the 2nd and the 3rd movie in 2014. However, I wasn’t aware at the time that I had completely missed watching the first part. I had to watch it and boy, I’m so glad I did. The actions scenes keep you at the edge of the seat and 佐藤たける makes 剣心’s character so lovable. The entire series is well planned and I’m glad there is zero awkwardness in between.
I’m so glad I got to watch shows that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wonder what I’ll watch next. I’m open to recommendations though. I’d definitely rather avoid slow paced dramas and movies.
