I'm still sick... spent whole morning & afternoon in coughing party... and only to realize that today is Nino day, but sorry Nino, I have to skip your birthday post and instead, we have Mukai's post! Surprisingly, Mukai is bloody productive this year, after S, Saigo no Keikan, he has 2 SP in same season, different TV station! I watched Jishaku Otoko first because the other SP needs some serious subs, and it's been awhile since we have a rom com in J-dramaland, what I mean is a G rated romcom (I consider ChocoJun as PG13 LOL).

What's Jishaku Otoko is all about?

It's simple, Jishaku Otoko is taking 2 different approaches of finding love. The first one is purely based on opposite attraction, symbolized by magnetic fields, same fields will negate each other while opposite fields will just click. Another approach is by knowing your conditions and working towards that mr. right who meets that certain conditions. So, what will happen when 2 people with these 2 principles met? Let alone their world are totally different too. One is a farmer who loves his veggies and cow more than anything, the other one is a career city girl.

What is guaranteed is all LOL! LOL! and LOL!

What I love about this drama is... story! It's so cute, heartwarming and it has the right pace! Character development and change of heart is not too slow and all events flow just nicely eg. there are moments where Oba starts noticing Sion and likewise, while we also get to see glimpse of Himuro's feeling too.
But what I love the most here is Mukai's acting. he's so different and natural here with the farming overall. He's really Oba from Oba farm. His sharp tongue in criticizing ladies, well particularly Sion, is so much different from Hungry! So it's so pleasant to see that change. I hope he gets more variety roles like this, not just the usual kakkoii cool character.
And, Aibu Saki should be given more chances to be lead character and be in a quite comical character, not the bitchy evil characters that she's been to a lot of times. She can act cutely and she has tons of facial expressions!

This drama slips lots of Western songs which lyrics don't really match with the mood. This reminds me of old Arashi varieties when they just slap in any Western songs as BGM haha... but if we forget about the lyrics, that's fine, all goes well hehehe...
