Cast & Credits
story is nothing deep. it's a cute concept actually. well, it's a weird concept also. but i like how the story develops fast since it's one gacha per episode (mostly). so the story is not dragging.
i don't know Johnny Jr. this is where i first encountered them. well, some have shallow acting but there are those who can act. a lot of eyecandies also in this show. and i like Suzuki Rio's acting as Miko.
OMG! after every episode, the song is stuck in my head. "Gacha gacha.. onii-chan." and whenever i see a gacha machine, i would sing that song. so a high score for that just for that reason. hahaha.
i'll definitely watch this again. it's something that you can watch if you want to be relieved of stress. it's a relaxation drama for me. you don.t have to think hard for this drama. it's literally a just relax and enjoy the show.
The cinematography alone is stunning, colour-saturated and very fantasy-like. The story concept is very simple and so original. The plot is linear because this is clearly a family show, but it's so nice to follow nonetheless. One thing I didn't like (but I think was done on purpose, because they kept addressing it) was the romanticisation of the onii-chan gachas... they're supposed to be your brothers, not your boyfriends, ew.
Also, look out for references to other shows and 4th wall breaking, because that happens a lot! I laughed so much because of that!
I loved the main duo, they were so cute together! The perfect siblings! Even though the acting in general, is not top-notch, the main lead (the little girl) is awesome, and she easily compensates for everyone else who might be lacking.
The music is okay - nothing special, but the ending theme gets stuck in your head (*sings* ''gacha, gacha, onii-channn'')
I've given a high score to the rewatch value because I think you could definitely rewatch this over and over and wouldn't get bored.
I really recommend this if you're looking for a nice and short dorama (every ep is 20 minutes or so). You could also decide to watch this for the ikemen value. Wouldn't blame you.
