This series actually started airing two weeks ago on October 2nd, but this was the first free chance I got to watch it. Unlike most dramas, this show runs only half an hour in length. I’m not going to summarize the episode, but the story is basically the same from the novels/anime, with Yuuichi and Rika getting acquainted this episode leading up to her sending him to the library twice. Yuuichi’s character seemed to complain a lot more than his anime counterpart, and Rika smiled a lot more than hers. Hashimoto Atsushi and Ishida Miku did fine jobs as Yuuichi and Rika, respectively, but something about Yoshino Kimika’s performance as Akiko felt off until roughly halfway through the episode. In any case, I really enjoyed watching this, if for no other reason than because it brought nostalgic memories of the HanTsuki anime. Still, I don’t plan to continue blogging it mainly because I don’t have time.
I do want to add that I am also tentatively planning to watch at least the first episode of the Jigoku Shoujo drama coming on November 4th. I didn’t have any interest in doing the second anime series, but pure random curiosity has me drawn to the drama version, just like with HanTsuki. :)
