Yeah, I know that ratings don't say anything, but this really sucks~ I was hoping they would improve. It looks like the show is really improving though!

Yeah, I too am glad Yuuki Akio is becoming less bland. XDDD;

episode 5! yeah i'm way behind XD
mao-chan is so pretty here ne! i love her every close-up shot!
oniichan is concerned for mio!
ichiru is so hilarious! staring at mio like that! and massaru actually trying to hook them up!
stalker ichiru!!! XD haha! was funny how mio kept looking back and he'd panic!
the guy she bumped into and gave her a flower! ugh... what a pick-up line. you look like my ex-girlfriend? but since mio is really lonely... :cry:
and she goes to the hospital for yuuki sensei!!! and she sees them about to have lunch! still trying to hide! awww... mio!
hehe yuuki sensei still doesn't sense mio likes him? :|

aww... takagi sensei fell in love with one of her patients ne... and yuuki sensei is about to go the same road... XD he just doesn't know it yet!

ichiru too concerned over mio haha! he looks so nervous and insane XD

kazu finally had enough of mio's brattiness! but mio really was a bit mean towards ichiru who's only concern was for her. but yeah... her pride got in the way again. she didn't want to apologize after saying those things to ichiru! mio goes out of the house. :cry:

massaru asking if mio's condition is serious... and when he saw how kazu didn't want to say it... he just smoothed it over as a joke. awww.. friendship!

ichiru and massaru are concerned over this two siblings eh? ^^ it's so sweet!

mio going to the hospital to stay over XD actually faking she feels bad. XD

kazu finally goes to the hospital (after having an argument with takagi sensei again XD)

kazu telling yuuki sensei mio might like him!! omg! i was like noooooo!!! hehe! it's too embarrassing for mio ne... but that's the only thing kazu knew to do.. coz he feels helpless...awww...

yuuki sensei going into mio's room and mio surprises him XD she's awake!

mio teaching yuuki sensei how to lie really well... yuuki sensei... i'm an alien XD LMAO

and then mio confesses!!!! omg!!! but she said it was her way of showing yuuki sensei how to lie well... so... but it's still a confession! waaaaaaaahhh!

when will yuuki sensei admit his feelings? or realize his feeling?! hehe!

he was actually sitting outside her room ne....

aww... mio and yuuki are so cute!

that's all. sorry just had to let it out. XD

Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to ask a question. :unsure:

I was wondering if anyone knew about this phone key chain and how I could get it. I found it on the FujiTV Web Shop and I'm pretty sure it's from First Kiss. I couldn't find it anywhere though and if I did I probably couldn't order it anyway because I live in the U.S.
Image
If anyone knows how I can get my hands onto this, please let me know. :mrgreen:
Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask. :unsure:
Thanks. :-)

Well, I found it at the new arrivals section, but when I looked at the items available for First Kiss...it wasn't there. There were only three things, a purse(I think), and 2 towels.
I don't know how to order it and I can't read Japanese. :whistling:
I can provide a link to the First Kiss section and the New Arrivals section if you want. :-)

The part where
Kazu goes back to the hospital and meets with Yuuki, then rushes to catch Mio at the airport. And then he suddenly collapses..?
I totally could not catch a word of dialogue from there.
i would like to know that too!

I think they must have given us too much excitment last week because I felt tonights episode slipped back into mediocre.

Still some sexciting things happened but it was a little bland
Takagi sensei is being transferred instead of Yuuki sensei
Banba? fires Kazu but Kazu takes it as Banba telling him to go out and do it on his own
and Mio starts to get super worried about her operation and asks Yuuki sensei if its ok if she doesnt have it because she wants to live

Thanks for the spoilers!

It sounds like a filler episode before the climax, and it doesn't seem a particularly interesting episode.

I suppose the ratings reflect it? 13.2%

I have tried my best to watch atleast 3 episodes of this series. I cant seem to watch any further.. the problem is my major is cardiac sciences and the disease she has for which CABG is to be performed, is an adult acquired disease there is a chance of 0.01% of women that age to have narrowing of coronary arteries. :O Even in the 0.01% of women who have it is due to obesity!! Yes thyroid related obesity problems lead to it!! Shes all jumpy and extremely fit and I cant see how she can have that disease. THats such a buzz kill.

Writers should have researched thoroughly enough to decide on which disease they want to use :roll :crazy:

Sorry cant watch it anymore! gomei! :-(

:glare: even though you go with the scientific fact about her disease it doesn't have to be bad
doesn't always have to go realistic you know
the really good thing about this drama is the story line
its very good give it a chance specially within the episodes 5-7

Etto... does anyone have any theory on the "smiling fat boy" that appears in every episode?
I find him incredibly funny, just walking by with that grin on his face...
XD XD XD

Anyway, yeah, even if the technical details of mio's heart condition are totally fake, the drama is more about the personal journeys she and her brother are going through, ne? along with wonderfully written side characters, great performances by all the cast, smart and funny dialogs... etc.. etc.. etc... XD (can you tell I like this drama?)

this dorama is greatly written.. especially on the first few episodes.. you dunno who's gonna end up with who..
and it was great looking at Inoue Mao as someone other than Tsukushi. LOL
she's so pretty here..

and finally ppl are noticing Hiraoka Yuuta.. (i think his greatness has been overshadowed in Tatta Hitosu no Koi, and ProDai; by Kame, and YamaP).. he's been in three 9PM monday doramas.. and i think that says a lot!..

oh.. and i'm so loving SARS for this (and for Hana Kimi)..

can't wait for the last few episodes.

I think its because the first few episodes werent as appealing as many people thought. Even I have to admit that I found it boring at the start but only watched it for Inoue Mao :wub:

But since eps 5 it has gone o good *-* loving it now!!

I started watching First Kiss yesterday and just finished episode 2 (yeah I know I'm behind, lol). I've kind of been keeping up with the tread so I know some of the things that happen and I have to agree with the people who said that some episodes go nowhere. As I was watching ep2 I kept thinking to myself "What is the point of all of this?". But whatever's lacking in terms of plot is made up by the awesome acting. The dialog between Mio and Kazu is done really well and the roommates are lots of fun. I'm hoping the rest of the story will be just as good.

So many people missing out on a great series.
Yeah, it's the worst performing G9 drama since Tokyo Wankei. Yes, it did worse than Suppli . . .
Before this show started, I did predict the show may do this level of ratings due to the nature of the story. But I think it wasn't so much that the show didn't find an audience, but that the audience genuinely disliked the show.

I'm up to Episode 5 or so, and I haven't made up my mind about First Kiss. There's many things I really like about the show (esp. the direction and camera work), and I love Inoue Mao's performance. I'm just not happy with the writing, or much of this wonderful cast is just underused. It's as if the writer is forcing herself to make this a heartwarming comedy, and so she consistently backs off from really digging into the other characters. But I hope I like it more as it goes.

First Kiss is only my second jdrama to date so I can't say for certain if it's up to 'standards'. In my opinion though, I didn't find it a boring series. True the script was a bit weak, but I think the acting made up for it. I think the problem with a lot of jdramas is that they air only once a week, so it's easier for people to forget the storyline and generally lose interest in it altogether. Since there were no major cliffhangers or new story development, I think if it aired 5 days a week it might have done better.

Well still, I found myself quite enjoying the drama. I think the cast did a great job in their roles. Especially loved the chemistry between Onii-chan and Mio. Not to mention Yuki sensei!! I think I might experience some Yuki sensei withdrawal symptoms soon! :wub:

Speaking of which, how did everyone find the last episode?
The scene at the airport was awesome! I was thinking how horrible it would be if there was no great 'kiss' scene, especially since the drama is called First Kiss! Totally didn't disappoint, it was kawaii!

I think it's safe to assume that everybody's favourite part of this drama was the acting from all the actors? I agree though because without the acting, I probably would not have continued this drama.

Gosh, I can't believe this drama actually did worse than Sapuri, which was pretty bad already. Yikes. Think we can blame on the lack of promotion?
I really liked the kiss scene too! I love how hesitant they were at first. AHAHA. I wonder how many takes it took to perfect it. :P

I'm also REALLY GLAD that Yuta finally gets the girl. Ahahaha.

I have a bad feeling that FK was probably a troubled production a la Tokyo Wankei. Can't really make this sound nice -- for the expectations of a G9 drama, even considering that the summer season has been really poor, the show is a huge bomb. The show finale drew the 2nd lowest ratings of its run, and the 2nd half of the show's run only passed a 14 rating once. Meaning, the audience tuned out the show.

That all said, I'm really liking First Kiss. :D

The biggest problem with First Kiss is the writing. There is lots going on, but nothing important enough to be the center. There is the brother sister thing, the patient doctor love, the brother doctor relations, the tenants, the brother's lover, the brother's career. These were all themes fighting for attention.

In every successful drama, the key premise was established in the first ep and each ep, the main character does something towards that goal. For example, Iryu was successful because it built everything around the batista. Prodai around the proposal, etc. But in FK, the main char is Mao, but it's her brother doing all the work. It's never that clear what Mao was after, partially because Mao was not that clear herself. But, if so, it was a poor choice to make her the main character (Mio character, no the actress). If the character is unclear, then the audience is unclear and bored.

There was a decent amount of material to cover in 11 eps. However, they should have picked one main theme that the main character should have done. My choice would have been Mio and her forbidden relationship with the doctor. Her relationship with her brother should have served as character building exercises in her relationship. The first ep should have focused on the relationship buildup and the conflict. mao's interloping in her brother's career would have served for second to fifth eps. First doctor patient crisis should happen and resolve in six to seven. A rival should be introduced in four to five but only mature in conflict in eight to nine. Drawing up to her final operation and resolution in ten eleven.

This is more of a formulaic pacing, but this is the formula because it is a natural dramatic flow and presents a clear story to the audience. By mixing all the elements without focus, it led to a weak story structure and boring drama despite the powerful cast

I totally agree with you. What makes this drama different from most others is that it presents a more realistic take on things - you can watch this and believe that the events are actually happening right now whereas usual dramas follow only one plot line tend to be a bit more fast paced with things happening bam bam bam and finally concluding with everything nicely wrapped up. (True that there are a few too many things happening at once but then real life is like that, ne?) IIt would be nice if the side characters were filled out a bit more but considering the length of jdramas, it just wouldn't be possible. But all in all, I think this show is quite refreshing, a good break from some of the more unbelievable ones out there (don't get me wrong, I enjoyed watching Hana Kimi but some parts were just too over the top for me).

Actually, Hana Kimi also had poor writing, but for different reasons. Hana Kimi only performed to the expectation given the cast and source material. Also, it stuck with the formula, so it didn't turn people off

The only dorama that performed well this season was LIFE. It had no star power. It was a newish timeslot. But it outperformed LIAR GAME, which had big names. Tho I really dislike bully dramas, I have to respect it's accomplishments. It was a well done drama, hence it got a 17 rating nearly a 50% inc over the start.

edit: everyone probably knew, but I just found out that the theme song was done by the same artist that did Tokyo Love Story's theme. I knew it sounded like it but wasn't sure. It's definitely my fave theme of the season

Yeah, but Liar Game was airing on Saturdays really late at night. Basically a slot for experimental shows and anime.
Actually, Hana Kimi also had poor writing, but for different reasons. Hana Kimi only performed to the expectation given the cast and source material. Also, it stuck with the formula, so it didn't turn people off
I like Hana Kimi, but one basic problem with the show was that the director didn't know how to translate the manga idioms of the original material onto the screen. Bad, bad match of director and material -- it's as if he's never done slapstick comedy ever. Many of the jokes -- and there are too many slapstick sequences here -- just fall flat. It made me appreciate how bad Nodame Cantabile could have been, even with mostly the same cast, had they used a different director and writing crew.

The way First Kiss is directed, from its really smart tracking shots, patient editing and pacing, and how the director gives the actors a lot of environment space and much longer continuous takes . . . THAT is what Hana Kimi badly, badly needed in order for the principal three characters to really cohere. (Nobuta wo Produce really benefited from longer takes as well, which properly spaced out the wacky chaos from the intimate, more casual scenes.) It would have made the show both much funnier and more emotionally involving.

In fact, I actually think the First Kiss direction is better than its material. Having the director of Nodame Cantabile and Densha work with this cast should have been a homerun.
What makes this drama different from most others is that it presents a more realistic take on things - you can watch this and believe that the events are actually happening right now whereas usual dramas follow only one plot line tend to be a bit more fast paced with things happening bam bam bam and finally concluding with everything nicely wrapped up. (
Honestly, even as a human drama, the writing on First Kiss just misses. I watch a lot of shorter dramas, especially the lesser known Korean dramas, and the one constant of a good human-interest drama is dialogue, many, many scenes of people talking about important and casual things that reveal character, that enables the actors to really act. And this is one of Inoue yumiko-san's strengths.

I think for me, what bothers me most is that the cast isn't being used correctly. Matsuyuki Yasuko is a great actress; Takenaka Naoto is a great comic actor. When they're giving material, they take your attention, the former (mostly known as a dramatic actress) showing her talent with subtle, comic timing while keeping her character serious and realistic; the latter with using broad, scene-stealing panache. Can't emphasize enough how underused Yasuko is here.

Ito Hideaki is solid here too, but he doesn't have some internal method actor style to contextualize his own conflicted attitudes toward family or his lifestyle. He needs words to say them. He needs something to contextualize this task for Mio, beyond wanting to be a good brother. Why does he want to be a good brother?

Above all, the way Yuuta is used here is just . . . argh!!! It's like I have to take back all I said about Mao and Yuuta having this great chemistry and Yuuta being a severely undderrated actor waiting for that big role. Even here, you can see the potential of a full performance here ; in his eyes for this role, he conveys mix of childlike sincerity and melancholy, like he too is seeking some sense of affirmation he's never gotten his whole life. BUT, then the writing doesn't really go anywhere with him and Yuuta's asked to mostly stand there, look melancholy, and be merely an an object of affection. I want to cry! :(

That all said, there's a lot of things I like about First Kiss. Inoue Mao does something approaching a star turn here and confirms that she may very well be the most talented under-23 actress working in J-drama TV today. The nuance and command of her line deliveries, the attention to detail and awareness in her body language, and above all, her ability to convey the psychology of her character to the audience. (You literally see Mio, not Mao, thinking about how to piss off her next victim and protect herself.) (And she's a gorgeous weeper, very underrated in this respect) Her best scenes so far have been with Yasuko -- it's very easy to see how the two actresses are in tune with each other, and of course Hideaki. Sweet without being cloying.

I agree that concentrating the story around one central theme/plot could've helped. But there were other areas that would've sufficed to fix a multitude of sins.

The "forbidden" doctor/patient relationship annoyed me as it was presented, so concentrating on that for the whole drama would have been enough to make me turn off the show permanently unless the conflict got completely overhauled. :-( Most of the complaints made by the hospital are ridiculous and off the target of real doctor/patient concerns. It's not like Akio could only have forgotten his cellphone on the front seat because he's dating a patient. Cripes, that could happen with any girl he might date! Doctors are not eunichs, so it really needed to be put in a more realistic context.

It's also not like any other girl he might choose to date couldn't have later become a patient at the hospital. For doctors the world is filled with prospective patients. Even doctors and nurses become patients in real life, so a short-term temporary patient who is visiting from another country getting involved with a secondary resident doctor in her case during her stay doesn't rank particularly high on the list of forbidden doctor/patient relationships, particularly when she doesn't have a major emergency under his care and we don't really get a sense of him being responsible for her treatment. Interfering with a personal relationship to put stress on a patient who is supposed to be avoiding stress before a major surgery was sheer stupidity on the part of the doctors/persons involved in the meddling. The whole forbidden love plot struck me as way too forced and off target with poorly developed character motivation.

The biggest problems in the series came from inconsistent and sloppy writing. Characters are constantly flipping flopping on their opinions just to draw out conflicts that never needed to be conflicts, and potential for real conflicts gets ignored completely. Issues like whether his feelings for Mio might cause Akio to second guess himself in her treatment or freeze up during an emergency would be far more natural concerns. Concerns about his reputation being affected could have been developed far more realistically and with actual substance. Better parallels to Tagaki sensei's experience and more questions about whether losing Mio might jade Akio as a doctor would've contributed to that plot much better. They could've developed Takagi's backstory beautifully to illustrate the potential heartbreak of the situation, and it would've benefitted both the main story and a very underdeveloped character. Her lover dying under her care would've made more sense for doctor/patient relationship problems than the suicide did. That's an outcome that nobody could realistically blame her for.

Instead they gave us surface dressing with an overly annoying "bad guy" and teamed it with the ridiculous idea that if Akio couldn't stay at this one particular hospital he was a failure. Guess, that makes Takagi a double failure for being sent away twice, but for some reason Mio still trusts her despite her lectures to Akio. Go figure. At least Mio becoming afraid of the surgery made sense in the drama, but most of the other "conflicts" for her relationship were too stupid for words.

All that aside, I loved the dynamics between many of the characters. I tend to really enjoy ensemble casts and stories that develop along multiple storylines. When not suffering from over the top vacillations, the brother sister dynamic was my favorite in the series. I like the approach of concentrating the story there, since it's a less common choice than the romance and letting all the developments fan out from those two showing how this summer reunion helped them to live their lives fully. The housemates were also fabulous and interesting to watch. Mio and Akio were cute together once the story finally started to let their relationship develop. (It really needed to start building from the first episode.) I thought the actors gave solid to great performances, but the material let them down.

I think for me a better choice of conflicts and tying the storylines together more closely would have really helped this drama to unfold better for the audience. The writing wasn't tight enough. Too many characters remained passive. Why didn't we get any rivalry between Haruna and Takagi? Could've butted heads it over both Akio/Mio and Kazu, which would help justify Haruna's character tremendously. How are we supposed to believe that Kazu helped Takagi come to terms with her past when he really didn't do anything, except backdown within a matter of minutes when confronted with a glibly handled backstory. The multiple storylines could have been restructured to work together to drive the story far more engagingly and convincingly. Better pacing would've led to less back and forth development in the characters and plot too.

Anyhow, despite all the complaints, I did enjoy this drama. It just wasn't as a result of the writing. The cast was fabulous.

Yeah, but Liar Game was airing on Saturdays really late at night. Basically a slot for experimental shows and anime.
Actually, this was why I brought up LIAR GAME, because LIFE took over the same timeslot

Actually, Hana Kimi also had poor writing, but for different reasons. Hana Kimi only performed to the expectation given the cast and source material. Also, it stuck with the formula, so it didn't turn people off
I like Hana Kimi, but one basic problem with the show was that the director didn't know how to translate the manga idioms of the original material onto the screen. Bad, bad match of director and material -- it's as if he's never done slapstick comedy ever. Many of the jokes -- and there are too many slapstick sequences here -- just fall flat. It made me appreciate how bad Nodame Cantabile could have been, even with mostly the same cast, had they used a different director and writing crew.

The way First Kiss is directed, from its really smart tracking shots, patient editing and pacing, and how the director gives the actors a lot of environment space and much longer continuous takes . . . THAT is what Hana Kimi badly, badly needed in order for the principal three characters to really cohere. (Nobuta wo Produce really benefited from longer takes as well, which properly spaced out the wacky chaos from the intimate, more casual scenes.) It would have made the show both much funnier and more emotionally involving.
FK had virtually all the elements for the success, strong cast, decent director, classic theme song, but was missing a decent writer. Instead, we were left with unfulfilled potential. I don't have that high opinion of the director because I felt that he was weak at the comedy scenes, quite a few comedy scenes had poor pacing. I do feel that he was fine at the romance (for the reasons you mentioned).

(
Honestly, even as a human drama, the writing on First Kiss just misses. I watch a lot of shorter dramas, especially the lesser known Korean dramas, and the one constant of a good human-interest drama is dialogue, many, many scenes of people talking about important and casual things that reveal character, that enables the actors to really act. And this is one of Inoue yumiko-san's strengths.

I think for me, what bothers me most is that the cast isn't being used correctly.<snip>
There are many ways to present parallel tracks in human interest dramas, but it requires STRONG skills to properly highlight the motivations and the action. J-Dramas tend not to have the length to properly present this, so, it would require phenomenal writing skills to pull it off. This writer was simply not up to snuff. I don't know what his/her background was, but it feels like that person came from a theatrical background. The scenes tend to have long lines and verbal sparring of a dramatic variety. This is more seen and effective in theatre, doesn't work well in drama because the theatre audience is a captive audience and only needs to sit thru one show, but you have to have reasons for renzoku audience to come back next week. There was just no reason to come back week after week

The "forbidden" doctor/patient relationship annoyed me as it was presented, so concentrating on that for the whole drama would have been enough to make me turn off the show permanently unless the conflict got completely overhauled.
There is no argument that there the entire conflict would have to be overhauled, but as a Mao fan, it was my way of keeping her in the center, none of the other themes had her in the center.

i think the storyline don't really attract that much people ne...
but the acting was superb. i have no complaints in that department and the cast mesh well together too! episode 9 and 10 made me cry :cry:
i agree you really see mio and not mao in here.

episode 9
mio starts packing. she's leaving right away without even telling yuuki sensei :cry:
it's so cute how oniichan and mio always fights XD
and then mio learns about how oniichan threw away his chance for paris.
so they go to banba-san! and tries to convince him! (funny scene outside banba-san's apartment with masaru and mio XD)
mio shows him oniichan's photos he took when they were kids but banba-san isn't convinced :cry:

ichiru convinces oniichan to tell yuuki sensei about mio leaving...
but takagi sensei doesn't want to... it could jeopardize his career...
she finally gives them 5 mins!
but yuuki sensei will not break up with mio even if she goes back to LA awww...

the scene where mio thanks oniichan while they're standing back-to-back is just so sweet ^____________^ makes me tear up! so touching!

mio gets ready to leave. and we see haruna pulling her big luggage for her XD
this scene just made me :cry: mio coming back and thanking ichiru and masaru for taking care of her. waaaaaaaaaaaahhhh! and her telling oniichan he should do his best and she will too!

yuuki is still calling her. she doesn't answer and turns off her phone saying this is the way she likes him... awwwww...

no paris for oniichan. he suddenly realizes he needs to tell mio what yuuki told him. and runs for the airport.

mio and the phone scene :cry:
haruna saying mio should pretend she's yuuki sensei and hug her awwww...
oniichan finally find mio and tells her what yuuki sensei told him!
but then he suddenly collapses.
and :cry: what he said here... that it would be better for him to die in place of mio because mio has finally found her happiness :cry: :cry:
episode 10
oniichan got heatstroke.
outside haruna tells mio to call yuuki.
and mio does and then she says that her oniichan tells her he doesn't want to leave her and she says she doesn't want to leave him too. XD

mio and yuuki moment :wub: funny how ichiru and masaru harasses him and then tells him to go to mio XD
they're outside and we see mio for the first time really worrying about her operation.
yuuki tells her he believes it will be successful and she must come back to japan.
:wub: and they hold hands so cute!

takagi visits oniichan and he becomes all baka. haruna's pissed XD

takagi sensei is gonna be transferred :cry:

oniichan goes home from the hospital funny scene where mio holds out his boxers XD and he jumps to snatch it away XD
they have a party waiting for him. and also his "graduation" from banba-san. he was fired (?) :cry:
i think banba-san believes he can do it. (btw, love the pictures he took of mio crying)

mio's heart acts up again and she goes into the room. now she's more afraid than ever. coz she finally has something to live for. :cry:
even happiness is scary sometimes... :cry:

oniichan goes to the hospital after he finds out takagi sensei is being transferred.

mio goes to yuuki sensei and asks if it's okay if she doesn't go through the operation. she still wants to fight with oniichan and also to horse around with ichiru and masaru. :cry: and yuuki sensei hugs her. awwwww! i don't think anyone can really know what she's going through.

i love mao's acting. just superb!

True the script was a bit weak, but I think the acting made up for it. I think the problem with a lot of jdramas is that they air only once a week, so it's easier for people to forget the storyline and generally lose interest in it altogether. Since there were no major cliffhangers or new story development, I think if it aired 5 days a week it might have done better.

Well still, I found myself quite enjoying the drama. I think the cast did a great job in their roles. Especially loved the chemistry between Onii-chan and Mio. Not to mention Yuki sensei!! I think I might experience some Yuki sensei withdrawal symptoms soon! :wub:

Speaking of which, how did everyone find the last episode?
The scene at the airport was awesome! I was thinking how horrible it would be if there was no great 'kiss' scene, especially since the drama is called First Kiss! Totally didn't disappoint, it was kawaii!
I think it's safe to assume that everybody's favourite part of this drama was the acting from all the actors? I agree though because without the acting, I probably would not have continued this drama.

Gosh, I can't believe this drama actually did worse than Sapuri, which was pretty bad already. Yikes. Think we can blame on the lack of promotion?
I really liked the kiss scene too! I love how hesitant they were at first. AHAHA. I wonder how many takes it took to perfect it. :P

I'm also REALLY GLAD that Yuta finally gets the girl. Ahahaha.
the kiss was great!! i didn't expect it though i thought it would be like just a peck and that was it! but in the end, when yuuki put his arm around mio's neck it was not... haha! it looked weird kinda

I just finished this drama a few days ago, and to be honest I thought it wasn't as good as I wanted it to be. Though there were a lot of interesting & engaging scenes, there was an equal amount of boring or seemingly pointless sub-plots that made the series seem longer than eleven episodes.

And for some reason I didn't feel any chemistry between Yuki & Mio at the end of the drama. I was hoping for a little more story-line or screen time between the two of them, but the story focused more on other things like Mio's relationship with her brother, or Mio's character development.

Overall, First Kiss was pretty good; although I'm not sure if I would sit through the whole series again-maybe just occasionally to look at/copy Mao's outfits (they were so cute!) :D

What would you do if you're one day stricken with a life-threatening illness and recommended to undergo a surgery with a 50% success rate?
If it is successful, you can live healthily.
But if it fails, you may die.
It is cruel to be told of such a life expectancy.
Because one has to find the answers to one's life.

20 year old Mio finds this question thrust at her.
But this absolutely cheerful girl doesn't cry.
There's still 50%! It's a challenge isn't it?
She has big dreams to fulfill.
And so her journey begins.
A happy, slightly painful journey of dreams and life ...

Because of an incurable illness, she lives in the U.S. for medical treatment, but she returns to Japan to visit her older brother (Hideaki Ito), whom she has been separated from since their parents' divorce.

And so, it is decided that Ikki will fulfill his sister's different wishes.

I admit, this drama isn't very...interesting during some scenes...
But I mean, I guess it's primary focus is also on the relationship between Mio and her brother...
And then you have Yuki-sensei (What a cutie, btw :D)....
I'm almost finished with the series...And it's interesting enough to have me watch 3 episodes straight? lol.
I love Inoue Mao..she's a really good actress!

I found this series enjoyable though agree that with so many different stories to carry through, it weakened it. At least I thought they tried to tie it all up...some other dramas, they just seem to chop it off and the viewer is left with :scratch:

It would be nice to see a SP follow-up about Mio and the pretty doc along with Kazu being a photographer. :-)

First Kiss hmmm wasn't all that engaging, there wasn't much of a story and it all seemed devoid of any real emotion....It was also kinda cliched and nothing happened, nothing at all. Mao as Mio was :wub: ~ Full of kawaiiness and was the only reason I watched it.....And maybe its only me but the hug between Mio and the doc near the end of ep 10 lacked any real feeling...I couldn't feel the love between them, same with the kiss in the final episode no passion there at all, I don't think they had any real chemistry

I just can't believe this lasted 11 eps!!!! I was like seriously how did such a dorama last so long.... :scratch: .....I'd have ended it at round 2eps max and thats stretching it!

Finally got around to watching this show. It was slow most of the time, but as always I enjoy Japanese culture so I gleefully endured it. I can't seemed to get Gekidan Hitori as Guitar Otoko in Densha Otoko out of my mind when I see him. Although the gay character he played in Stand Up! was a refreshing change.
I like Mao's acting (right of the back of HYD2R) and I could see the expressions of similarity to it. :)
I loved the summer wind chime at the house they all lived in too. All in all good fun but slow and rather pointless in some places.
