Currently Watching :: Ouran

In preparation for our next podcast I have decided to start watching jdramas/doramas this month..While I must admit its been tough since I already miss my beloved kdramas friends keep telling me that I'm going to get hooked... we'll see bout that...

First thoughts

While the anime wasn't exactly mind blowing it was still enjoyable. Its pretty amazing that the same things I loved about the anime, the fun over the top characters have translated very well into this real life version. I can't begin to tell you how much it irks me when characters you love from an anime or manga are totally reimagined and become something completely different. Like seriously, don't mess with a good thing. (the biggest fail for me was Miwako from the live action Paradise Kiss -- thats another story tho)

Yamamoto Yusuke as Suou Tamak

The drama is currently on the same level as the anime was for me. Its cute. The actors are fun. You still totally love Tamaki despite his self centered ways. Its nice.

Then again I'm only on episode 3. lol.

Stay tuned.


  1. Ooh! I watched the live drama a while ago!
    It is cute!! >u< And I just love the characters! ^^

  2. Its totally lovable right? as my first dorama I def approve!

  3. Lol I love the Ouran drama :3 It is pretty cute and funny<3
    OMFG do not get me started with Paradise Kiss T-T 

  4. ahahahaha. I think the feeling is pretty much mutual with anyone who is either a Ai Yazawa fan or had seen the anime. Seriously tho that movie had such potential considering how awesome Paradise Kiss is yet they still managed to completely screw it up...


    NANA (live action) wasn't exactly a home run in my book either.

  5. I personally liked the manga a lot more than the anime. But I actually heard some Ai Yazawa fans did end up liking the live action. For me, I am just disappointed with how they tried so hard not to make them look like their characters in the animes/manga. They are different for a reason. It would have been nice to see a guy look like Arashi or a girl look like Miwako :/ But I agree definitely made me upset :| I still might try to watch it though...MIGHT. lol

    Yeah! I thought it was okay, I love the person they casted for Yasu *__* lol but other than that it wasn't "OMG great!!" for me... :[

  6. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay I loved this dorama!!! Each character is special and it makes it very funny!

  7. I've been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this site. Studying this info So i am happy to show that I've a very just right uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed.
    I most indubitably will make sure to don?t overlook this web site
    and provides it a look regularly.
