Where to Watch Konto ga Hajimaru
Cast & Credits
May not be the best Japanese drama but is probably the most relatable one!Life doesn't always go the way it is planned and there are going to be times when one is bound to fail. That time one may feel dejected and may also feel that they might have wasted their time, but as time passes they might move on. One might fail, but the experiences that they had garnered and the relations that they had build up throughout that time still stay, and these memories that they had made will be cherished by them throughout their lifetime. This is konto ga hajimaru's main theme.
The drama has a simple but a relatable story and is carried by a stellar cast. All the 5 main characters Suda, Taiga, Kamiki, Kasumi and Kotone along with a strong supporting cast were wonderful. The acting felt so natural that there were times I forgot that they were acting.
This might not be the best Japanese drama out there but does have an ability to be cult classic. It is that drama that may want the viewers to come back and rewatch or recommend the drama to a person going through a hard time. This drama is just that awesome!
Watch it if you are a fan of slice of life dramas or you are a fan of the actors!
Warm and light but important life lessons.This is not your usual drama genre.
There is no suspense or shocking plot, no twists or unexpected turn of events. Everything goes as anticipated. But even then there's something that'll keep the viewers hooked on. Perhaps it's the realistic story line with no exaggeration.
It is something everyone can relate to. All characters have something holding them back, you'll surely find one of them to be you. And the best thing is the character development. Gradually they all learn to move forward.
No one is perfect here. The affection they have for each other is beautifully depicted. Memories from the past and the events in the present are well linked.
There are times you might disagree with the views of a character, it's okay they can be wrong, but then they finally learn. Seeing them grow is quite satisfying. There's a lot to see, learn and apply.
Acting is excellent. Suda, Kamiki, Nakano, Arimura, Furukawa- all did their part so well that it makes you forget that Macbeth doesn't exist in real world. You can not forget the supporting roles either, they made it more interesting.
I like how everything is interconnected, it makes it overall more impactful.
It sure revolves around a comedy trio, but it might make you more emotional than laugh. In my case, well I'm heartless, so..
Don't worry, there are fun parts too. Yes, light romance as well, if you're wondering about that. It can be draggy at times especially for people like me who are not a fan of this genre but everything else makes up for it.
In a nutshell, it is a light, warm, realistic and a lesson packed watch, something you'll like unless mystery, fantasy, dark and heavy stuff is what you're looking for.
*Has a happy ending.
