Standard

Also knows as Itazura na Kiss or Playful Kiss. This drama is the japanese live action adaptation of the manga of the same name. I prefer this one, out of all the adaptations. There is a movie, korean drama and a 23 volume manga series. So if you really like it

This series follows Kotoko Aihara (Miki Honoka), through her one sided love with Irie Naoki (Furukawa Yuki). Due to some unforeseen circumstances Kotoko’s house is destroyed and she comes to live with Irie and his family. Thought out the series Irie’s mother and Kotoko keep trying to get Irie to fall in love with her, leading to some very odd, and stalker-ish moments. While Kotoko is trying to get Irie’s attention, her friend Ikezawa Konnosuke (Yamada Yuki) is in love with her, and trying to get her to fall in love with him.

This is a cute drama, but I do have some gripes with it, however it’s not the actors or writers fault, because it was in the source material. It’s a fun watch. I will be writing a review about season 2 in about a month from now.

3.5/5
