I chose Pi cause I think he's technically the best-looker among them, but Shige runs a close second...Shige is getting more and more gorgeous ^^

Looks aside it's really hard not to love every single one of them!

Ah, I love Love Generation! Hmmm... favourite scene... When they're in bed together, and Teppei is talking about his brother, and Riko puts her arms around him and hugs him. It's just so comfortable and sweet. I also like the scene where she sat in his apartment looking at the Christmas tree and wai...

The Chinese subs are by Subpig, not Lily.

I'm SO glad that Papa to Musume is back airing again! This is my favourite drama of this season. It's so awesome :)
It was so funny the way Koume (Papa) waved at Kenta! Kenta is so sweet. I would totally fall for him too.

I actually find Liar Game more painstaking than suspenseful.

The only thing keeping m...
