Tamako Love Story – Review

Poster

Name – Tamako Love Story
Genre –
Romance, Slice Of Life, Comedy
Director: 
Naoko Yamada
Writer: 
Reiko Yoshida
IMDB Rating – 7/10

Story – As she edges toward the end of her high school life, the energetic but generally clueless third year Tamako Kitashirakawa has only one major concern: pulling off a stunning baton performance at the Usagiyama Marching Festival. But all too soon, she is confronted by the reality that all her friends have big plans for their futures; she, on the other hand, just operates with the moderate goal of continuing to work at her family’s restaurant. Under the same brilliant sky, Mochizou Ooji intends to study at a university in Tokyo, leaving behind his family, friends, and most importantly, his first and only love Tamako. Unfortunately, the shy admirer cannot bring himself to declare his love, and Tamako is yet unaware that she is the source of such anguish. With time quickly running out, Mochizou must confess his feelings to Tamako soon, or his dream of romance will never be fulfilled.*MyAnimeList


My thoughts
– ‘Tamako Love Story’ is a sequel to the Anime Series ‘Tamako Market’. However I didnt watch the series, so for me the movie was sort of like an introduction to the characters and the story. But that didn’t make me enjoy the movie any less. From the beginning till the end, the movie was fun to watch.

My thoughts –

‘Kill Me Heal Me’ was undoubtedly one of the best dramas of this season. It’s awesome from almost every angle. The drama itself was a complete package of romance, humor, tragedy, excitement & suspense. The plot was unique, well-written & wonderfully executed. The consistency it maintained throughout the last episodes was worth complimenting. Even though the story was a little stretched somewhere at the end, yet the last few episodes were no less exciting than the first ones. That’s what makes the drama worth watching several times.

Earl & Fairy – Review

Edgar & Lydia

Hakushaku To Yousei (Earl & Fairy) Review

Name – Hakushaku To Yousei (Earl & Fairy)
Episodes: 12
Status: Complete
Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Shoujo.
Rating: PG-13

Story – The story, set in Victorian Britain, follows the adventures of 17-year-old Lydia Carlton, nicknamed the “Fairy Doctor” due to her interest and understanding of fairies. Her life takes a 180-degree turn when she meets Edgar J.C Ashenbert, the “Legendary Blue Knight Earl” and his crew on a sea voyage to London. Edgar hires her as an adviser during his quest to obtain a treasured sword that was supposed to be handed down to him by his family. *Source Wiki

My Review – I enjoyed this show despite it’s flaws & cliches. The story was interesting in my opinion. Edgar’s tragic past & his never ending desire for revenge, sudden re-appearances of his old enemies and the bitter sweet relationship between Lydia & Edgar; all these things kept the story going. But the story lacked the depth that was expected & needed. Moreover it seemed a little bit rushed sometimes. However these negative sides didn’t stop me from enjoying this show. 😛

Reply 1997 – My Favorite Quotes

K-Drama Quotes – Reply 1997/Answer me 1997

Here are some of my most favorite quotes from the K-drama Reply 1997 (Aww I miss this Drama like hell!! 😥 )-

|Episode 1 & 2|

# “At the age of 18, we think we can love anyone … and worry too much about little things. Eighteen. Adults say at this age, we laugh at the simplest things. But at that time, we were serious. Harder and more intense than most adults.” – Shi Won 

answer-me-1997-quote

# “Once we tried to be the same. But one day we started to change. Becoming different people .. why was it so hard to admit it? Everyone is different. That’s the way of the world. The way of growing up. At the age of 18, we were growing up and therefore changing from each other. At the same time we had to confront another growing pain, that of accepting others.” – Yoon Jae (Episode 2)

|Episode 3 & 4|

# “A secret refers to something I don’t know about others… As I find out what I’ve believed isn’t the truth, secrets have more power… Things I believe to be true aren’t always true.” – Shi Won

# “The human mind is infinite. Neither its depth nor its end can be known. They fight to the death some days, and then they show their love and affection for each other. A normally hot-blooded male could become a coward in front of girls.” – Shi Won

#Yes, the truth is inconvenient. But if we don’t accept that, we have to live with lies. We have to accept inconvenient truths. what we see is not everything.” – Shi Won

# “I knew it then. When you start to like someone, she is all you can think of. And there is no gain without effort. Whatever you want, you can’t get it if you stand still. There is no such thing as fair play anymore.” – Yoon Jae

10 - 003x3

My thoughts – Author Takano ichigo did a great job with this Manga. It was short but covered lots of emotional/serious issues like first love, friendship, regret, sacrifice, depression, suicide and much more. Though its premise may not seem extraordinary at first glance, the execution of the story was mind blowing. Once you start reading the manga you won’t be able to stop, the urge to know what’s gonna happened at the end will keep you engaged.

The story compelled me to start reading this. Everyone has something in their life that they wish they could change. If I had the chance to change some of the decisions I made in my life, how would I react to this? Would I rewrite those moment completely? And If I did … how would that effect my present life? All those thoughts were lingering on my mind while reading the Manga. And that was the most interesting part of the story. It will give you a bittersweet feeling. Some moments will make move you to tears, and some moments will put a smile on your face.
