I was intrigued by the synopsis and decided I hadn’t seen a good J romance drama in a while… Story: So the synopsis is way misleading. Each week I waited for the forbidden romance to develop and there was none! The story is really about a young female who finds out there is a secret surrounding her birth and we get to see how she deals with it and how it affects her family. As a family drama it was good but I was just disappointed because this was not the story I was looking for. The ending was kind of blah. Acting: The female lead actress did an excellent job. She made Rei feel real. As for the male lead, he was okay but I thought his character really didn’t contribute anything to story and I would have been okay if his character was cut out. In fact, Nakamura Aoi probably should have been billed as the male lead because he had a more intresting storyline and he had chemistry with the female lead. I liked the actors who played Rei’s family. Kaname Jun who i have seen in a lot of dramas did a super job playing the antagonist in this. I felt really sorry for his character in the end... Music: Adele's radio hits. While good, im sick of hearing them since they play it on the radio all the tme. Rewatch: Im not interested in watching this kind of story again. Overall Iki mo Dekinai Natsu is a solid family drama if thats what your looking for but nothing thats too memorable.
