Final episode!

The short version: Happy endings all round! ^_^

Beware spoilers... )

And that's it for now! I don't know what I'll review next - has to be something suitably cracky - but I'm sure something will come along. I could always go back to Gokusen 2, I suppose. I'm about due a rewatch. ^_^ Thank you to those of you who've commented on my reviews, and I hope you've enjoyed reading them because I've sure had fun writing them!

The short version: The Taiyo Beer gang are secretly the product of Hanna-Barbera.

The short version: women are complicated creatures and hearing Kame saying 'Miroku' makes me giggle, despite the totally inappropriate context.

The short version: Shizuku and Tomine peak at the same time, with different results. You can read that however you want and you'll probably be right.

Some sort of personal post to follow over the weekend, probably, but for now, here's an overdue review. The short version: the Taiyo Beer crowd give me warm fuzzies, Tomine really needs to wear a bib, Robert makes a lousy agony uncle and Shizuku looks gorgeous when he goes ballistic.

So much better than the previous episode that I can't even begin to tell you how. The short version: Tomine is crazy, Maki is evil, Miyabi is cute, Shizuku is criminally pretty and his father is a warped, manipulative puppetmaster.

This took me forever to write! I deserve some cake now. ^_^

Disclaimer: I've only read a couple of chapters of the manga and I know absolutely nothing about wine, so my reviews are based solely on whatever happens in the drama. If I screw up with the terminology somewhere, feel free to set me straight.

The final episode! I could cheerfully watch it all over again. I know it wasn't to everyone's taste, whether they were Kame fans or not, but I loved it.

(This will be my last review until the next time Jin and/or Kame acts in a drama, as I don't feel inclined to go back and do old ones.)

I'm nearly done with 1PG reviews now, and that makes me very sad. I shall miss my crazy, cracky, Kame-filled drama!

This one's a bit later than usual as I only downloaded the hardsub this morning. It'll also be my last review for about a month, because I doubt I'll get a chance to watch episode 7 before I leave on Friday, 8 I'll watch on TV in Japan the night I arrive, and 9 I'll miss because I'll be on my way back from a TOKIO concert. So it'll be a while, okay? That said, on with the show.

Everything I said about the fourth episode? Double it for this one. Absolutely amazing.
