Ramblings of the Forever-12-Year-Old

Tuesday, September 20, 2005

Ah~~ Japanese Dorama~~~

Remember years ago when Japanese TV Drama was very popular?

Everybody was crazy for them, and most people can name one or two favorites. We rented or borrowed them from each other, then burnt the midnight oil watching them because once we started, we can't stop? Aahhhhh~~~ The Good Old Times~~~~~~ (*nostalgic* ~.~)


Well, that time has been long gone..... Or so it seemed.

Nowadays, people are going crazy for the Korean dramas, and it seems that Japanese Dorama has been going down-slope for a while. Strangely, for me personally, Korean dramas just don't hold so much interest that I would start watching one and can't stop... However, it has also been a long while since I went crazy about a Japanese drama. You may think it is an age thing (of course, that's because you are denying the fact that I am "The-Forever- 12-Year-Old"! XD) or a phase thing... I, however, think it's just a matter of 天時、地利、人和.

What I mean is, I love Japanese dramas, and I don't think my fondness of them will decrease for my whole life, even though there may be periods of time when I don't really watch them that much or can't find especially memorable ones, but the good ones that I've watched before will always hold a fixed place. I suppose all of my beloved genres (電影、美國電視影集、日劇、小說、漫畫、動畫、電動....) work the same way. It seems that because of these varied interests, I go through phases of concentrating on one or two of them each time. But after a while, I would usually go back to others in turn.

I still keep my eye out for anything that interests me, but it's been a while since I last found myself intensely engrossed in a Japanese drama like before. Recently, though, it seems that that old feeling has suddenly come back for me. And the trigger is the discovery of a drama called "H2."

I found out that one of my long-time favorite Manga's by Mitsuru Adashi (安達充), has been adapted to Japanese Drama. So, after some searching, I was able to obtain and watch it recently. Like many other Japanese dramas that I got in recent years, I watched the first episode with reserved anticipation, and expecting that I won't feel like going on watching the whole thing. This sense of reservation is even stronger because this drama is based on a long-time favorite story, and I had seen how horrible these film/drama adaptations can be. ~"~

To my extreme surprise, the results was excitment and complete satisfaction!
Once again, it all came back to me: that sense of being absorbed into the world of the drama, the life and concerns of the main characters, the sense of loss when I finally finish it, the music or certain scenes going around in my head for days afterwards...

What can I say?! I am still young-at-heart, after all! Mwah~ XD

  • Yeah.. I know.. You've mentioned that before, neh... But I don't know how good I am about these things... They are interests, but I'm not one of those people who seriously studies all of the genres and are so knowledgeable about the whole genre, history and stuff... I just pick out ones I like and rant and rave about them...

    In this regard, I have to admit that I am very, very "Gemini" like... (have interests in almost everything, but never become an expert in any field.. ><)
