 Summer’s gone and the days are getting colder, which means it’s time for the fall j-drama season. The only noteworthy drama last summer was Woman. Unfortuantely, Sakamoto Yuji decided not to write any dramas for fall, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that something good will crop up, though there isn’t a lot to choose from at the moment.

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episodes 9-10 (Final)

We’ve reached the end! While I didn’t hate the finale, I certainly didn’t love it either. I didn’t have particularly high hopes going into the last two episodes and while some stories were wrapped up in surprising ways, I’m not too hung up over it.

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episodes 7-8

While I’ve been enjoying the romantic relationships the women are in, I’m glad to see these episodes focus on their personal goals outside of love. Yeah, love is important, but it’s good to have other goals as well. The show is still rather heavy-handed with getting its message across, but this is one time that I really don’t mind. Continue reading Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episodes 7-8

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 6

I was thinking of dropping recaps for this show since I got so behind because of my computer, school, and the holidays, but I’ve had this one typed up for a while so I figured I might as well post this recap and finish up the recaps before the new drama season (and school) started. I still haven’t finished the show myself anyway, so maybe writing recaps will motivate me to finish.

So, how is everyone faring in the love game right now? Continue reading Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 6

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 5

I’m guessing we’re at least halfway through at this point so it’s about time that something major happened, right? Well, sort of. There’s finally some background on Yu and Emi’s relationship, but otherwise the drama didn’t throw anything that we didn’t already see coming, though the logic behind some of these things leave me scratching my head. Continue reading Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 5

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 4

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 4

Just cause I thought this was really pretty

This episode is all about healing and moving on. The girls finally seem to be moving out of the love desert as the new guys start to make their moves. Of course, new love means new problems, but I’m just happy that we’re not plodding through the same conflicts anymore. Continue reading Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 4

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 3

Love wasn't easy for Cinderella either

The girls still aren’t faring too well in the love game this episode and it definitely seems like the end for all of these love lines, which doesn’t bother me since none of these guys seem to fit any of them anyway. Well, except for Yu and Emi, but I’m starting to wonder if even they’ll end up together. Continue reading Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episode 3

Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu Episodes 1-2 (The Reason I Can’t Find My Love)

I was really looking forward to Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu (The Reason I Can’t Find My Love), though I think it was mostly because I finished Love Shuffle recently and wanted to see Karina and Yoshitaka Yuriko in another potentially interesting romantic drama.  Yet, the premise appealed to me, in particularly the friendship between the three women, recalling to mind the k-dramas The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry and I Need Romance, both of which I liked, but could never fully relate to, which I assumed was due to the age factor. Since WatashiRenai has a younger group of women, I thought it would be more up my alley and decided to check it out.
