Kinkyori Renai Ep 06 Review

essays on gender It’s quite natural to set a teen romance like Kinkyori Renai (近キョリ恋愛) in the summer. First of all, there’s summer vacation, which the class celebrates at the start of this episode:

Kanata (Kishi Yuta) is the one who proposes the beach party in this series, but it was bound to happen somehow. He also wants to make it a farewell party for Ririko, but it sounds like that’s just a plot from the basketball team to get Ririko to the beach.

Kinkyori Renai Ep 05 Review

Posted on: October 11th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

After Mirei (Ishibashi Anna) confessed her love for Haruka (Abe Aran) by kissing him at the end ofthe previous episode of Kinkyori Renai (近キョリ恋愛), I’m looking for some follow-through on the relationship in this episode. Will Haruka reject the sentiment, afraid of the implications like Mirei was before Kanata (Kishi Yuta) talked to her? Or will the writers spare us that sort of awkwardness and instead bring us more unexpected sources of conflict?

He wanted them to come up with a plan together, but didn’t really communicate that. All this talk from Kanata has Mirei worried. We still don’t know how Haruka actually reacted immediately after the kiss.

cheap rosettastone irish Things seem to be getting smoother between Haruka (Abe Aran) and his stepsister Ririko (Adachi Rika) in Kinkyori Renai (近キョリ恋愛). Sure, Haruka is still trying his best to keep some distance between them, but he’s smiling around her more often and speaking to her civilly. I guess getting mad at her in the previous episode and then worrying about her sort of broke the ice.

Kinkyori Renai Ep 02 Review

http://tubetes.com/online-personal-statement/ Online Personal Statement At the conclusion of the first episode of Kinkyori Renai (近キョリ恋愛), Ririko (Adachi Rika) asked stepbrother Haruka (Abe Aran) if she could stay with him after getting into a fight with her boyfriend. Considering Ririko moved all the way from New York back to Japan in order to be with this boyfriend, she is necessarily confused and distraught.

watch Also at the end of the previous episode, we saw a preview of scenes involving adult Haruka (as played by Yamashita Tomohisa-kun) which I took to be part of this series. Thankfully (since those scenes deal with issues I don’t find entertaining), that’s all going to be part of a movie that I’ll never watch (not my kind of thing). This series is actually the prequel to that movie. That relieves the worry I had about Yamashita-kun’s part in this series – he in fact has no part except in the intro.

Shounen Club 2014.08.13 Review

Posted on: August 18th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

debt assignment agreement The second Shounen Club (ザ少年倶楽部) for August began with the three elder members of Sexy Zone singing “Sexy Summer ni Yuki ga Furu”. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you already know how I feel about this song. If you haven’t: I hate it. I still consider it a mess of randomly assembled musical phrases and sound effects rather than a proper composition. The dance is weak, too (lots of arm-waving, very little leg work).

Thankfully, they didn’t spend much time singing it, as A.B.C-Z quickly took the stage for a verse or two of “Walking on Clouds” Not the best A.B.C-Z song by a long shot, but certainly an improvement on “Sexy Summer” – especially thanks to Hashimoto-kun’s singing.

They’re still missing Totsuka Shota-kun, by the way.

The pattern for this opening is obvious – each of the debuted groups get to do a teensy bit of a song – so I wasn’t surprised to see Johnny’s West take the stage next for “Banzai Yume Mansai!”

2014.08.13 Shounen Club 005 2014.08.13 Shounen Club 006

It’s not my kind of song and for some reason always reminds me of an AKB song, but they had the most sophisticated choreography of the three groups.

I don’t like opening medleys in general, but at least this one eventually got the audience pumped up.

Hosts Kawai Fumito-kun and Kiriyama Akito-kun talked to the members of Johnny’s West, and Daiki Shigeoka-kun got to introduce the theme of the show: Summer. Let’s see how many summer songs they actually do (I’m not going to count “Sexy Summer” since it can’t decide what season it’s in, has Christmas themes throughout it, and they wore Santa costumes when initially promoting it).

Kinkyori Renai Ep 01 Review

Posted on: August 15th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

Time to start the Summer 2014 drama season!

It was an interesting coincidence that I started this blog in the season where NTV began a long string of late-night dramas featuring Johnny’s juniors with Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou. Since then, I’ve made a point of covering that time slot through strong dramas and weak ones. This season, the new drama in that slot is Kinkyori Renai (近キョリ恋愛), which is a romance drama, and that’s the one kind of story I have the most trouble with. That’s for a number of reasons, including the culture gap between my concept of love and that often found in dramas based on manga (as this one is).

That fair warning aside, there are some reasons I’m looking forward to this drama. Abe Aran-kun proved to be an engaging personality in the otherwise dismal SHARK Season 2, and I would like to see if he is as good an actor as I (and whoever decided to give him his first leading role) think he is. I expect Kishi Yuta-kun, Takahashi Fuu-kun, and Tajima Shogo-kun to bring a lot of energy and humor – something that was sorely lacking Sprout, the only other pure romance in this time slot. This will be Tajima-kun’s first foray in a drama, so we can make an initial assessment.

The drama begins, however, with a much more famous member of the Johnny’s agency – Yamashita Tomohisa-kun. He plays Sakurai Haruka at the age of twenty-seven while Abe Aran-kun plays the same character at seventeen.

We see Haruka as an adult – and an English teacher at that – first.

Kinkyori Renai Ep 01 000 Kinkyori Renai Ep 01 001

He seems to have the complete attention of one half of the student body of the school he works at, which should be a bit uncomfortable . . .

Kinkyori Renai Ep 01 002 Kinkyori Renai Ep 01 003

. . . but then when one of this students asks him – in English – if he’s seeing anyone special, his answer seems to be one of those doki-doki responses. In other words, it appears like he cultivates the attention of girls. Already I feel my stomach churning.
