Usagi Drop Episode 10

Rin falls sick.
usagi drop ep10
Daikichi is at a loss when Rin falls sick with the flu.

so it's a big relief to him when Rin got well again.
usagi drop ep10-2

there's so many endearing parts to this episode it's almost impossible to choose a favorite. from Yukari taking the extra time out to go over to Daikichi, to Kouki trying his best not to look into Rin's room even though we know he wants to, to the light hearted "father-friends" gathering at the cultural festival.

it hit me once again that the final episode is next week!

so not prepared to let go of this show yet.

Ouran High School Host Club Live-action Ep 7

one of my favorite shojo series so far, i've forgotten the number of times i've re-read the manga or rewatched the anime, especially since the live-action dorama started in July.

still remembered complaining about the manga drawings back when the anime first started me going on this series, but i'm glad i picked it up. it has been a wonderful ride following the guys on all their misadventures.

i know that the actors aren't as good-looking as most fans expect them to be, but after watching 7 episodes, i'm actually getting very attached to them. even Honey-sempai, whom i initially thought was the ultimate wrong choice, has become one of my favorite in the dorama.

as for Haruhi, Kawaguchi Haruna did a pretty good job portraying her. if Sakamoto Maaya brought out the nonchalant feel of Haruhi, Haruna brought out the pissed-off look very well. now, if only Yamamoto Yusuke wasn't that whinny as Tamaki, everything would have been much better in the adaptation.

unlike other adaptations like HanaKimi or even Hana Yori Dango that chose to change tons of things, the dorama has been quite faithful to both the manga and anime, which is a definite good move, because that definitely pleases fans like me.

you can check out the similarities and differences between the two versions in my favorite episode, where the host club goes visiting at Haruhi's apartment.

the guys tries their "space saving" sitting position.

Usagi Drop Episode 09

happy family setting.
usagi drop ep9
if only Daikichi had the guts to confess to Kouki's mom.

the anime didn't follow the manga chapter by chapter, opting to rearrange the materials as they deemed fit, so it was a little confusing when i was trying to find the actual chapter this is based on. that aside, Production I.G. still did a pretty good job and i'm already dreading the end of this fantastic show.

2 more episodes to go.
