Papadol! Ep 02 Review

Posted on: May 14th, 2012 by tylerraiz No Comments

source url Papadol! (パパドル!) is a comedy in which Nishikido Ryo of Kanjani8 plays himself as an idol who falls in love with a divorced woman with three children. The first episode was the funniest episode I had seen of any drama this season, and the second episode, I’m happy to say, kept up the humor level while still developing the conflicts and tension that makes a story interesting. This series benefits from very tight editing – I have yet to feel that a particular scene took too long, or should have been skipped entirely.

As usual, you’ll have to watch to find out. And let me guarantee you this: I’m leaving a lot of stuff out, and the episode ends . . . well, it’s definitely impressive. I hate to think about how much it would have cost for Nishikido’s character.

For instance, Kawashima Umika has a number of wonderful scenes. She really carries the load as far as conveying the family side of the difficulty Nishikido-kun faces, pushing back against him with poignant firmness. The kids are all doing a great job, and Nishikido-kun does fine work interacting with them.

Up to the Challenge

There are two special features to this drama that really help to give flavor. First, the way they mix in real-life Kanjani8 events/work to give everything a sense of verisimilitude. The other is the fact that they can get away with including other celebrities as themselves without going overboard, since it’s realistic that Nishikido-kun would come into contact with them in his daily affairs. It all adds to the fun.

So, I’m still enthusiastic about the series. I was missing a solid comedy in my lineup – Kodomo Keisatsu came closest, but it’s more cute than funny, and Mikeneko Holmes was the only hope for a real laugh until Papadol!. Already, the viewer has a strong interest in what happens to the main character – whether he can really make it all work out or not. It’s a lot like Ikemen Desu Ne, actually – same sort of feel, just a bit more grown-up and way more realistic.
