This is a great 15 of extra time for the episodes to breathe. It lets the main show focus more on the main storylines and basically does all of the storylines between Nishi, Ryuko and Koishikawa's love story. The first few episodes focus on the love life of the Sakura, Sakai and Ishihara but the last few are owned by Nishi and Ryuko. The Cat dance from the cat kamisama Nekota is amazing and I loved watching it every time. Comedy was great, Story was great and this is a must-watch if you are watching the Main Series.

I have not read the manga and this drama is the first experience I have with the story. Clearly, this story is not for everyone since it dives into a story that would be dangerous and wrong if it was in the real world. With that said, I thought this was very funny and I enjoyed every episode. That does NOT that mean that I support stalking people or harassing them after they were clear that they do not want anything to do with you. If you think that the subject matter is not a problem for you to enjoy a drama, then I would definitely recommend.

I really enjoyed the comedy and acting. The main leads were great at what they did and the opening theme was beautiful. I definitely would say that I would rewatch later on since it is a very short 5 hr drama.

Best Asian drama I have seen

I don't tend to give out 10s but honestly, this is one that deserves it. The story was really well balanced well and really entertaining, the acting was next level, the music was great and I would love to rewatch it. Truly, a wholesome comedy that can really pull at the heartstrings. I really liked how we followed the story of both mother and daughter and we get to see the parrels. All the actors, young and older, were amazing. I started watching because I'm a fan of Hamabe Minami, but I leave loving all these actors. I cannot believe that more people didn't watch this. It deserves way more views than this.

Only in Japan

Overall
Without ever reading the manga, Overall, I have to say that it was definitely enjoyable and I would rewatch again. If you think the topic is to weird or triggering please don't watch, but if you think it sounds interesting, by all means, give it a try.

Story
Honestly, this is the first time I see something like this. I am sure that there are more out there but it is my first. I think that the plot was good but there was so much that was never explained at all. Who was that group of cleaners? Never really got an answer. In the end, I just ignored all that because I was really enjoying it for what it was, but I know that there is a lot to be explained.

Acting/Cast
The main cast was amazing as always. It was great to see Sugino Yosuke and Fukuhara Haruka act together again. I really enjoyed them in the second season of Good Morning Call and also in their other works. Both are great actors and There can't be much said about them other than how great they are.

Rewatch Value
I would definitely rewatch.

Not your Disney's Mulan

After watching this minutes after watching Disney's live-action version, I have to say I really enjoyed it. It was different from anything that I have seen for Mulan (that would only be both of Disney's versions) and to me, feels more realistic than the others.

Story
I really liked how in this story, Mulan actually has people from her village in the army and they know she is a woman and decides to help her. It makes it more believable that she was able to become a solider without people noticing. I also liked how the plot was made up of different smaller missions. And the ending was great. Really liked that they even left it a bit ambiguous to the viewer to decide.
I think that the only thing I didn't like was the story felt rushed. We only see Mulan as a woman for a few minutes in the beginning and then she was a great soldier from the start.

Acting
This is the first Chinese film that I see and I thought the acting was good. I would like to see more films the leads and see them act in different situations.

Really liked it a lot!

Overall:
If you have an hour to spare, give this a try. I think you'll like it.

Story:
This was really a nice and sweet drama story. The 50 min long watch feels like a breeze. I have to say that I even liked the coincidences that connected all three stories prior to the present. And then the fact that what set this story in motion is a real situation we are living in the real world is such a nice touch. It makes it a bit relatable.

Acting:
The cast is amazing. Prior to this, I have seen all the actors/actresses except Mizukawa Asami before and I knew I liked their acting. It is great to see the three that started out in Toku developed as actors and take one different role.

Rewatch:
I say this is great to rewatch. It's a short and lighthearted drama that simply is fun.

So this movie is a sequel to the first L-DK from 2014 but it recasted all the characters and It takes place a little time after the first movie takes place. I really liked this one, BUT it does feel so disconnected from the first movie, while also making it that if you don't watch it, you miss so much information because the flashbacks are so small and don't make justice to the first movie. Regardless I think that I liked the new L-DK better. The pace didn't feel Rushed and Shusei was not playing with the FL's feelings. He actually really was in love with her.

Characters
I think my problem is that, while they just recasted the characters and left the story the same, it doesn't feel like they are the same characters. ML had a bigger presence in the first movie, being a person that seemed almost like a troublemaker, while in the new one he feels like a quiet straightface guy, to the point that, the SML reminded me more of the original Shusei. Mone Kamishiraishi reminds me also of the Aoi from the first 10 mins of the original movie. More outgoing and fun. She also got to reenact those amazing few minutes of the first movie too, so I believed she is Aoi.

It's just good.

Overall, I say that I recommend it to anyone that likes romance stories.

Story.
First, I have to say that the premise is just ridiculous. If it was real life, marrying a stranger would lead to disasters rather than true love. However, this is not real life and it is also Japan, so of course, this was going to work out. As many have stated, this story is just full of fluffy and romance, and that true. Really liked how each episode was about a small everyday problem they had, due to the fact that they didn't really know each other. It just adds a layer of realism to this cray set up. And the solutions were not just magically solved by plot convenience (looking at you Coffee and Vanilla)., instead, most were actually solved with some dialogue.

Acting/Cast
The two main characters were great! Matsui Airi just knows how to act, as always and this was no exception. I could help but fall for her smile and just want Ami-chan to be happy. As for Itagaki Mizuki, I had only seen him in a minor role before, and even though he is quite young, he pulled it off amazingly. Manatsu-san is just a caring and compaction guy and he didn't feel creepy as many "perfect" male leads feel.

Music
It was great and I enjoyed it.

Rewatch Value
I can definitely see myself rewatching this later on. Really liked it.

Easy watch, Enjoyable Plot

I really enjoyed watching this drama. It was quite nice and I liked how it ended. Each episode introducing and explaining the story of a Yokai was very nice for those of us who do not know much about them. And then came the last episode. I really liked what was done in it and I did not expect it to end that way. However, it felt right. The actors also were quite good. I had seen other work from Koshiba Fuka and I was excited because I liked her acting and this didn't disappoint. Really liked who the main character turned into in the last episode. All the situations she lived with the Yokais built Meguro Mio's character to do what she does at the end and that is what feel right.

A monologue of two people. What a fitting title for this.

Overall
If you want an easy watch with great comedy and amazing acting, give this a try.

Story
I enjoyed the story. Definitely not a deep story by any meaning but I really liked the set up for the show. How they used to be friends and it took Hinata so long to realize she knew Mikage, meanwhile Mikage was slowly dying in the inside to be recognized by Hinata. Great start. Then the main formate the show took, just letting us listen to both character's monologues and how they read each situation completely different. Amazing. And the comedy was great. Literally laughed out loud many times.

Acting/Cast
I had seen both actresses from Super sentai before the show came out and was the reason I found out about this. Then I took so long to find subs for this and by now I have seen both lead actress in many shows. Fukuhara Haruka is always great for shy characters and this earlier work is no exception. Yanagi Miki is lovely in dynamic roles and this was a great fit for her. She really was amazing from her very nonchalant to her overhyped part, they were acted perfectly.

Rewatch Value
Honestly, I thought this was hilarious. I will probably watch this again sooner than almost anything due to it being a very short and easy watch that really entertains.

Overall:
I think that this drama is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to watch it. I loved the story and thought it was executed great from beginning to end.

Story:
At first, it was a little weird to think that she had been obsessed with him for soo long without knowing if he was married or had a girlfriend but I soon overlooked that with the rest of the story. She made a very big decision in her life, become a nurse, just because she had a crush on him after seeing him one time? This is what the drama is portraying at first but then it makes sure to explain that she became a nurse because of the feeling of helping from that one time that she help the older lady and also had a crush on the doctor.

Another negative would be that if you only watched the main episodes you think that some storylines where completely forgotten at times but many of those plots were handled in the extras. That said after a bit the extras basically focused solely on one and left the rest behind as well.
I liked that the drama did not take itself too seriously and I think that the comedy was on point. It also had great serious moments that were amazing and they blended together perfectly.

Characters:
I really liked Tendo sensei's Tsundere character. I was amazed to see him mad at the beginning and slowly soften to Sakura, who is really devoted to her work and seems like a sweet girl for sure. The side character was also fun to watch as lots of comedy came out from them. I loved it when the Koishikawa sensei thought that Nishi was in love with him and that whole debacle.

Acting/Cast:
TBH I started watching this drama because of Woz's actor being in it and now I am going to start Den-O because Tendo sensei's actor is the main lead of that. Since this is one of my first JDramas that are not Toku related, I did not know most of the cast from other works but I am glad I saw them here.

Music:
The theme song, in my opinion, was actually really good. I Love has been stuck in my mind since the first episode that I watched. The other songs used were also good in their own moments.

Overall I recommend if you like love stories. The time travel element is not overly complicated and instead is simplified to non-Sci-fi magic. This movie was great. I really enjoyed watching it and without giving spoilers, it was pretty simple to follow, unlike other time-traveling stories. I would have liked for it to by a bit more longer and used that to elaborate on the facts of the time travel, such as give an explanation.

Actors/Characters
The actors and characters in the movie were great. Takahashi Issei as Hirano Susumu sold they shy guy portray he was giving. I enjoyed seeing him break his shell with Kitamura Shiori and Kawaguchi Haruna is a very talented actress. These two were great in the movie. The rest of the cast did a good job too and seemed like good actors but we didn't see much of them.

GOKAI CHANGE!.... GOOOOKAIGER!

Honestly, I was not going to give this movie a low rating even if it was pretty bad. Nostalgia is just too big of a factor and I can't be unbiased in this situation. However, what surprised me was how good this movie was. I LOVED it.

The plot was great. I won't get into details to not spoil but it truly utilized the characters and their personalities great. (Possibly) Being set in the VS movie-verse of Toei, we even get some world-building to let you know that the seasons after Gokaiger also took place in these worlds outside of the ranger keys. We also acknowledge the time they returned in Zyouhger.

Ohh the music was such a beautiful sound to my ears. When I heard that "Tun dunt dura-rararant" I got chills.

And if you can't tell, I'm just gushing about this movie. So of course I'll rewatch this. Probably as soon as a finish this review.

Rollercoaster of a show.

Overall I would say that if you want to watch a Kamen Rider show, go for any other better ones. This was not one of them.

The Story. Personally, I didn't like it. The first arc of this show was extremely rushed. Every week it felt like we were getting characters that just popped up in the background and later they turned into riders and then you were presented to them, as the new character was in the background. Then it slowed a bit and became a show about Touma losing all his new friends for no reason and then sword fighting them into being friends with him. Literally, every one of his group members had a sword battle with him and most of them had it right before turning back to his side. Then there were so many plot points that were just brought up at the end with no buildup. Storious had a bunch of people kidnapped? Never saw it until it was relevant. Oh, And Ren just fussing about getting stronger was super annoying.

The acting was on par with other rider shows. I will give props to Angela Mei, who played Reika/Sabela. While I didn't really like how the writer handled her character at all, she did a great job. First, she was shown as the evil "right hand" woman to the main bad guy. Then was more of a comedy relief. She did both well.

The music was great. Almighty was a bangger. I listened to it for hrs and didn't get tired of it. The ending song was not bad either.

Few Seasons can compare to Kiramager

This season was AMAZING! Very few seasons can compare with the quality and entertainment that Kiramager had.

First, let's start with the story. This season was able to have an episode zero, which made the first episode the second part of a two-parter. This should be done with all season. It gives the introduction of the story room to breathe and settle better with views. Then, after 10 episodes of knowing the core team, we had to have the hiatus due to COVID. I was ready for the huge downhill slope, but, somehow, the quality of the show did not suffer. Then we had the 6th ranger join us, and with him, came a new story plot that ended after 4 episodes. SIKE! Of course not! These writers keep this storyline going and not just completely forgotten, but active. I feel like it's so hard to find this in toku but Kiramager had it.

The character and the actors in this show were on par with the story. Komiya Rio as Atsuta Juru / Kirama Red was such a welcome surprised. When we all thought he would just be another eccentric red, he brought a sense of thoughtfulness and care. I think we should have more characters that are like him down the line if they can get it right again. Kihara Rui as Imizu Tametomo / Kirama Yellow was a great leader to follow. Always looking for the best plan, he leads the team in the aspects that Juru was least capable of. Yet he is also willing to follow Juru and let him be the official leader. Shinjo Yume as Hayami Sena / Kirama Green, Mizuishi Atomu as Oshikiri Shiguru / Kirama Blue, and Kudo Mio as Oharu Sayo / Kirama Pink were great actors and their character were great team members. Sena was always herself from the start and was ready to act first and think later. However, with the right plan from Tametomo, she would be able to focus that entry and charge into battle at top speed. Shiguru was the cool man at first but once he was more comfortable with the team, we were able to see his eccentric side that others would not be able to see. And Sayo was like the mother of the group, always keep everyone in check and making sure everything was on track. Kohei Shoji was a wonderful actor as Crystalia Takamichi / Kirama Silver, who started off wanting to do his mission solo, but with a bit of friendship from the other, he was able to get the help of the team to complete his mission. Momotsuki Nashiko as Yodonna was a good actress. At first, I was not expecting to like this character as much but quickly I just wanted to see more of her and even felt tempted to want to see a victory for her. Every actor and actress was really good, and I hope they get bigger and better roles in the future ahead.

Music-wise I loved it. The opening and the ending were top-notch. Never skipped them in this year.

Since all but maybe 2 episodes were 4 stars and up, I would be willing to rewatch any episode in the series. The filler was always so good. Never had I said that about a season till now.
