It’s one of those days…

Do you know one of those days where it is just too windy to go out?
(I can’t believe I am saying this, after all I have live a good 20 years of my life in Singapore.)

When it is just too dangerous to go out ‘cos the sky is falling?

One of those days where you wake up to go to school just to find out that classes have been cancelled?

Or how about when you are so happy that classes are cancelled and want to just go home to enjoy some anime only to find out that there is no electricity?

Today was one of those days for me. (=_=*)

I wanna crawl back under my warm blanket and hibernate… (_ _)zZz

But I am watching Suzumiya Haruhi jumping around the screen.

Anyway, back to interesting news.

Zettai Kareshi

Zettai Kareshi is going to be a Drama!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!

DramaWiki , Manga on ANN

Zettai Kareshi is a manga by Yuu Watase (of the Fushigi Yuugi and Ayashi no Ceres fame)

Riiko is a girl unlucky in love. One day a strange-looking salesman gives her a business card for a website that sells “love figures” (androids designed for love-making). On the spur of the moment and without really understanding the implications, Riiko orders one for a 3-day free trial. She forgets to return him before the deadline, and must then work out some way to return the one million debt she now owes without anyone discovering about this embarrassing secret. – ANN (manga)

That is the manga’s description, I have no idea how closely they plan on following that storyline.

-update-

A live-action adaptation of the manga will begin airing on Fuji TV on April 8, 2008. In the live-action version, Riiko Izawa is an office lady in search of a boyfriend, and she ends up in possession of a “robot” known as Night Tenjo, who is programmed to be the perfect boyfriend. However, this creates a love triangle with a distinguished young man at her company who also has feelings for her. Riiko will be played by Saki Aibu, Night will be played by Mokomichi Hayami, and Soshi Asamoto will be played by Hiro Mizushima. -Wiki

When I first heard of it I was quite surprised and filled with mix feelings.
Honestly, to me the characters were really sweet and handsome and so perfect that it was unrealistic, and to find people who are able to act that way and live to the expectations… that is going to be hard.

The CM for the drama looks… ok… nothing special. I still think that the characters in the manga are hotter (duh!).
But it is not too bad, those actors are pretty hot too. I just am curious as to why Tenjo Knight’s character is so tanned. Looks weird.

I also don’t like the idea that they are making this an out of school anime. I thought that the high school plot was kinda fun. I guess the writers for this series are looking for a more adult appeal rather than teenage appeal.
This really changes things though, like the scenes during their part time jobs in the manga etc. (I guess that this drama would most likely be somewhat losely based on the manga instead.)  I am starting to get worried… (~_~)

But still, it is starting to seem like April would be a good month to start watching all sorts of anime/dramas.

Either way, I would most likely be watching this series. How about you?

  1. I love your posts but I wanna ask this out of curiosity.. I noticed you have a lot of hits and views, what’s your secret?

    • Luck, mostly luck 😉 . People search for all kinds of stuff and somehow some of them end up coming to this site – even if they didn’t search for it. And seemingly that’s how a lot of them end up on this site. Who knows why… Google works in mysterious ways.
      Then there are a bunch of people who actually come regularly to this site. Now that’s even more mysterious, don’t you agree 😀 ? I guess (I can’t be sure of course…) that it does seem possible that they surprisingly come here to read these posts you love so much. Or perhaps they wait for us to disprove the White House’s statement that there’s no proof for extraterrestrial life on this planet. *shrug* Like I said, I’m not sure.
