[J-Drama] Last Friends Ep3

[Posted @ 5:23 PM]

In the previous episode, Ruka yelled at [DV aka Domestic Violence guy] Sousuke not to touch her Michiru, now when Sousuke badmouthed Ruka, Michiru told Sousuke not to say bad things about her Ruka LOL. Sousuke was like .... 'YOUR Ruka? ...' *Major Pissed* 'You just said, YOUR Ruka!?' *Slap*!

Whoa, since when did Michiru grew a backbone to go up against Sousuke ... oh well, it's about Ruka after all lol.

Ahh, poor Sousuke, he knew that it was coming but damn, haha it sure hit hard, I mean getting sandwiched between two clueless 'friends' who apparently more than like each other.

Last Friends Ep3

Recapturing from Episode 2, Ruka was protecting Michiru against Sousuke who was about to hit her with a chair. When Takeru and Ruka demanded explanations for his actions, he merely shrugged everything off as a joke. Michiru even agreed, which made me so pissed at the first part of the episode lol.

Later when Ruka asked Michiru out for a talk, Michiru defended Sousuke's actions and saying that it's the only time in her life that she felt loved. Of course Ruka felt pissed off, however it's not that Michiru defended Sousuke but rather, her 'love' for Michiru apparently wasn't conveyed.

Oh yes and Spooky Sousuke went as far as stalking Ruka at her motocross workplace O_O lol. When Michiru came home late, Sousuke made her wait outside the house like a scolded puppy and then showed her the burnt cigarette marks he made on his wrist while waiting LOL. Totally creepy. That's not all, remember Sousuke made Michiru promised not to cut the hair for male customers? Yep, Michiru broke that promise but managed to lie her way out during dinner. HOWEVER. HOWEVER LOL, she made this stupid mistake by adding ... 'what if she did ...' LOL. I was like you freaking moron!!! Why don't you quit while you're ahead!! Butttt nooo, she just had to dig her own grave as Sousuke got suspicious and beat her up duh.

Meanwhile, Takeru moved in the Sharehouse and was given a welcoming party, oh yeah, we managed to see the woman who's 'harassing' him as he gave her a scold down via telephone when she called him. Apparently, that woman's married with kids!!! Anyways, Takeru made Ruka call Michiru who was getting frustrated and upset over DV guy and hesitated for many times before telling Ruka that she wanted to see her. I almost thought she wanted to confess her love or something ... going 'Ai .. ai ... [Aishiteru!!!] .... aitai yo ...' I was like *Sad droopy ears ...* lol.

The ever nice Takeru brought the girls to ... uh a familar place where they saw the city's night lights and left the two alone while he ran back to the car lol. I kinda like this scene because Ruka expressed her feelings of love subtly by comparing her father's devoted and quiet concern for her even though she's doing dangerous stuff like Motorcross with Michiru's 'love' for Sousuke and Ruka's devoted and quiet concern for Michiru even though Sousuke's a DV. Well at least Michiru's consistent in a way that she values Ruka's friendship alot and saying that the two most important persons in her life are Ruka and Sousuke.

Putting Sousuke as her top priority costed Michiru's 'job' in the sense that she's making unreasonable demands to her boss [Like knocking off on time and not to accept male customers]. During the night, unable to sleep, Michiru found her school year book under the living room table and started flipping around. When she saw a disfigured photo of Ruka, courtesy of Sousuke who appeared magically lol.

Manz, I give Michiru credit for asking Sousuke why he did that to Ruka's photo lol. Sousuke calmly replied that he's not going to let that person get near her and even reminded her of the promise of not seeing Ruka again. Yes, this is the part where Michiru suddenly grew wings and rebelled, asking why can't she meet her friend, an ex-boyfriend she can understand but it's a female friend. Sousuke actually said that Ruka's not a woman as she looks at Michiru with the eyes of a male o_O. [Oh I love the part where they switched the scene to Ruka who was playing Old Maid with poker cards with her gang and selecting a 'Joker' after Sousuke's statement]

Michiru started defended Ruka and raising her voice against Sousuke when he said that Ruka's a dangerous person. I also like this part here when Michiru started rambling that she had suffered for the sake of Sousuke, thinking she can withstand everything however this, she can't allow, [You go friendship! Here comes the line!] - 'I will not allow you to say bad things about my Ruka!'. Then it's off to pissed off Sousuke slapping Michiru for that statement. Could this foreshadow that Ruka won the 'game'? LoL.

In the end, the badly beaten [holy ... she's pretty ugly, no puns intended] Michiru went to Ruka for help.

It's a hug!

However, Michiru's crying face was like so totally fake and forced ... lol O_O. Oh well, bad acting aside, it's a interesting episode =). Can't wait for Ep4!

Preview of Ep4.

[J-Drama] Last Friends Ep2

[Posted @ 8:37 PM]

LoL, Ruka really said that, I'm not lying XD. Sousuke was like, *rise eyebrow* 'Your Michiru?' while Michiru was all clueless behind Ruka.

I wanted to watch it 'live' online but I was freaking kicked out of the network last night ... DAMMIT! But sub's fast, it's up like one day later, saw it when I finished my last mid-sem test [It wasn't pretty].

Last Friends Ep2

Oh well, Ep2 was hm interesting, as Michiru's senpai continued to bully her, Sousuke as well continued his beating of Michiru [And you thought Michiru would had ran away or called the police *rolls eyes*] although not as bad in Ep1 but it's getting more angsty and psycho lol. Especially the scene where he grabbed Michiru who was holding a scissors and directed it at his right ear ... whoa, talk about spooky.

A new character in Ep2, Ogura Tomohiko, a ... lol wuss who's scared of going home to yell at his cheating wife to get the hell outta his house, as Eri nicely placed LOL. We got a glimpse of Takeru's phobia of sex [Must be some wild woman O_O] as he got uncomfortable while watching a kissing/love scene in a movie dvd they were watching. Anyways, blah blah, Sousuke got jealous and pissed when Takeru went to the hair salon Michiru's working at for a haircut. He was creepily standing outside the store, waiting for her ... lol.

Later, Michiru after promising Sousuke what time she would be back and stuff, managed to watch Ruka on her motorcross competition but unfortunately Ruka fell, had head concussion and was sent to the hospital. Loved the scene where Sousuke too arrived at the hospital to visit Ruka as if he's sizing up his competition lol and ironically completely ignoring Takeru who Michiru is supposed to like later LOL.

Sousuke went bonkers at the hospital and was overheard by Ruka who wanted to visit the bathroom [I thought there's bathrooms in the ward itself?! O_o]. Of course Ruka ignored her limping leg and ran full out to protect Michiru from Sousuke, yelling that 'Don't touch _my_ Michiru!' LOL. Oh well, then it's the end, can't wait for Ep3, it's getting more interesting ...

I believe Ruka tried to convince Michiru to leave Sousuke but like typical dumb lead girls, she refused, leaving a pissed Ruka off. More info revealed about Takeru's phobia and the woman behind it ...

Oh yes, I almost forgot lol, I reckon, the most nerve-racking moment in Ep2 would be that Ruka seemed to have contracted some sort of disease/illness related to Urology ... and it doesn't look pretty at all. I was thinking of cervix cancer and any other thing related to cancer ... I mean come on, it's a drama after all lol

Oh nos, that means my perfect plot in Ep1 was shattered!!!! T_T.

[J-Drama] Last Friends Ep1

[Posted @ 4:18 PM]
Ah, it's been a while since I sat down on a chair and really blogged lol. The weekend had been hectic with me trying to cramp as much FINM2401 stuff in my small little brain. But now, it's over and it AIN'T THAT bad after all, I could had skip alot of what I did revise LOL.

Last Friends OP

Anyways, introduce you guys this new Japanese Drama series call, 'Last Friends', Episode 1 broadcasted on April 10th and here I am, watching the Chinese Sub 3 days later lol.

Fans of Ueno Juri [Noda from Nodame Cantabile] should definitely catch this to see the different sides of Juri, from the 'high-pitched, wacky & cheerful' [MUKYYYAAA!] Nodame to this 'low-toned, solemn & cool' Ruka =). She's totally amazing in here.

Oh well, the spoiler pic below will explain why I'm watching this;


Last Friends Ep1 Spoiler

*Wide grin* A sneak kiss. I love the part where Ruka made such a sorrow looking face at the sleeping & crying Michiru then hesitating before leaning down.

It's apparent that Ruka really likes Michiru but too bad Michiru's too coughstraightcough dense to sense it and ... Ruka's really hid her feelings well. There were plenty of camshots of Ruka staring at the smiling Michiru like as long as she's happy, she's happy too.

I've already start predicting the plot after watching Episode 1 lol, from the way the timeline was organized, the present day, a pregnant Michiru's alone somewhere, hesitating here and there on whether to write a letter to Ruka. I believe Ruka doesn't know where Michiru was or she's away abroad on something related to motorcross and I'll go with both. Suddenly, I've got this crazy idea that Ruka might be dead but nah, since Michiru's trying to write a letter ... lol.

Anyways, along the episode, there were instances that Michiru's recalling on the subtle hints Ruka's leaving and regrets, signalling that it's a present day feeling. So I think that towards the end, Ruka will find Michiru in the whatever hole she was in and lived happily ever after LOL.

I doubt that it will happen, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Oh yes, the OP, 'Prisoner Of Love', sung by Utada Hikaru ROCKS! If you haven't listen to it yet, GO, GO! NO, you're not fast enough, click here instead! LoL.

Last Friends Ep1 Spoiler

Oh yeah, finally I'm changing the Song of the Month, Mnemosyne ED, 'CAUSE DISARRAY' by GALNERYUS. Enjoy, cos I did.
