*sigh* Why must you make things so difficult for yourself, Naoki?

This is a MAGNIFICANT writeup.  If I can hold myself fr hitting Naoki on my screen every time he appears in 15, I wish nothing more than me forming words resembling this post fr Midnight Express

Side RANT:  I have nothing sweet to say of Itakiss 15.  It’s probably me, not Show, or the thoughts or some RL stuff the episode evoked in me on Irie, on the harsh reality of relationships and marriage and they are all not pleasant.   While a side of my head can appreciate we delve into RL issues (but I’m so not in the mood) but I need this be escapism fluff in the highest order MORE.  I did not sign up for all these weighty thoughts.  I tried to desperately hang onto the love in 13, 14, and the entire precious darling drama honestly, but I can’t say I was not underwhelmed with 15 .  I have a post written, but I’ve deleted it.  I can’t stand behind what I’ve written of when manga characters grow up in our world, the real world.  However, did Irie really grow?!  I did not even like the performances of our 2 leads for a few episodes now.  Irie, there are some really douchy moves and words you’ve done and said to Kotoko.  No one deserves you dumping your shit on, ESPECIALLY NOT KOTOKO DARN IT!!! I’ve stuck with you thick and thin Fluff, this should be our angsty sugar rush, you do not put us through a bumpy climb in a roller coaster and not give us the endorphins from all the Gforces from a lovely thrilling  loop right after, at least.  It is as if I’ve cried for my mommy on the ascension and the train is stuck at a plateau of just cruising along.  With 15, it’s this close to be the nail on the coffin.  I feel horrible, the feel of beating a puppy.   It is suffocating me and so I’ve decided to not dump and drag the bloggieworld with it.  But other than 10, the second half of drama has been a steady slow slog, and it went from me singing this is the best Itakiss adapt in everything to DARNit!  I need some ISWAK goodness and a drink,or a dozen.  *EnDRanT*  And like magic the ISWAK family gathered at Joe’s resto for a gathering and they look sooo sooo perfect I wanna put them in a glass globe and put them on display so I can pet them, every night and all is well.

I am fine with 13, 14 .  We are no longer in the tone of what causing us all to fall in love with this Itakiss, gone are the squees and spazzing of Cute! every other scene, what’s in its place is still this preciousness of seeing how our cutiepies transition from pure shoujo manga gold to a semblance of real breathing young things tackling RL problems. I am fine with that, but  come penultimate episode and you give me an Irie so mentally retarded he would still rub in words of silly childish hurt all over Kotoko?!?!  No. NAH.

But yeah, pile on another blasphemy, you GOT THAT FINE PIECE OF IRIE HISTORY AND HE DID NOT EVEN GET A LINE?!  AND NOT EVEN THE IRIE SURNAME ON NAMETAG!!!  YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!!!!!

Midnight Express

Judge me all you want but the drama I am currently watching religiously is (much to my own embarrassment -.-) ItaKiss ~ Love in Tokyo. I’m pretty sure that at least one circle of hell has frozen over considering that I have never been able to stomach any of the previous adaptations, much less the manga.

Not going to lie: this is to my brain what candy floss is to my teeth but damn if it doesn’t fill my days with spazzy glee. With the exception of episode 11, I haven’t had a problem with any of the subsequent ones. I know there are people who find the pacing of this final arc a little slow but I actually like its introspective tone and the fact that it shows the characters growing up and contemplating their future. They can’t stay in high school or college forever and canon or…

  1. Thanks for the very kind words, Mookie. 你太夸奖我了! Hahaha.
    I am with you re: Kassy’s cameo. I was expecting him to at least say something to Naoki and maybe jolt him out of his mental fog a bit. What’s the point of getting him to appear if all he’s going to do is walk off screen?!
    Now that I’ve watched the final episode, I do think they spent too much time dwelling on Naoki’s momentary lapse of sanity and logic (that’s what I’m calling that entire period.) I definitely could have done with a few more cute moments between our OTP before the drama ended.
    Anyways, I do hope you’ll write about the final episode (absolutely no pressure, though^^) I’m pretty sure all your readers are refreshing your blog in the hopes of seeing another one of your lovely ItaKiss spazz posts 😀

    1. 15 was just a slew of odd choice of scenes through and through. I honestly do not see why we need so much 沙穂子 in it, I have no problem with the actress, she is truly beautiful and every nice words I can say about a young lady, BUT we all know the endgame, it just seems such a big waste of time stacking that plotline up. IF the production did want to delve in the whole conundrum of romance vs marriage, this is not the right fluffy shoujo drama. What we loved most about Itakiss is this fantastical simple love of a girl that nothing would waver, no real life stuff will ever make it a choice for Kotoko to not love Irie and pick a Kinchan however dreamboat he is. Love is not about choice in shoujoland, it’s all or none.

      HAHAHA you can’t expect me to not spazz the heck out of 16, do you?!?! ^^ I would get to it as soon as I have some time.
