A cute and entertaining watch despite changes from the manga

As a writer, I'm usually wordy, so I'll try to keep this short and sweet.

I read the manga Dekinai Futari prior to watching Dizukyun-hen. I must admit, the Dizukyun-hen version was cute and nice to watch, but it felt very lacking. They cut out a lot of integral parts, and I felt very little happened in that version.

The Muzukyun-hen version is better, and I guess this is why they placed it behind a paywall on Telasa. There's a lot more context behind the main characters' past relationship. There are more flashbacks, and they are less confusing than the ones in the Dizukyun-hen version.

Both versions show both POVs of the characters, but I felt that the Muzukyun-hen version made itself a lot clearer. The sequencing of events, the flashbacks, and even each character's individual interactions with other supporting characters were far more detailed in this version.

There are cuter moments in this drama too, and we get to see more of the main characters interacting with each other. Despite being a short movie, it didn't feel as lacking or as rushed as the Dizukyun-hen version.

One thing I preferred in this version over the other one is that aside from providing more context, they showed more of the supporting characters, and the integral role some of them would play in the main leads' relationship. I wish they didn't cut so much from the manga, though. I enjoyed a lot of the changes (e.g., the second lead in the manga was too annoying, but he was nicer in the show), but I felt they removed some important characters from the manga (the male lead's ex-girlfriend really helps push their relationship forward in the manga, but she didn't exist in the drama adaptation).

Overall, I love the acting of both of the characters. They also had great chemistry together. I especially enjoyed seeing their individual thoughts and reactions to each other, ranging from lovesickness to awkwardness to jealousy. Extra points for the upbeat Jrock OST too—Ah, Mou by Saucy Dog is such a bop.
