I can't believe I'm seeing so many people gushing over this series. I've watched every episode and I'm sorry I really couldn't find myself liking the series. For one thing, Inoue Mao just simply had no charisma and her acting strikes me as really amateur. When I first saw the previews back in early ...

I guess part of it depends on whether you see Jun's Domyoji as an Aries kind of guy or a Scorpio kind of guy. If the latter, then I would argue the J-drama's interpretation of Domyoji has been absolutely stunning. If the former, then the argument goes that it's inevitably going to turn into a "good...

Tomoya Nagase would make an awesome Doumyoji. He has the brooding looks and the build. but still, even if itwas 2-3 years ago, he would still have been too old for the role, because back then he would've been in his mid 20's? Or maybe not... because i guess then again, matsujun just turned 22 right?

Somehow it always seems like she cannot fight on her own and always depends on Rui's help (or on Doumyouji's as soon as Rui is gone). She sure lacks of the weed power that Tsukushi brings, she easily...
