Papadol! Ep 07 Review

Posted on: July 2nd, 2012 by tylerraiz No Comments

go site Things were finally looking up for Nishikido Ryo-kun in episode six of Papadol! (パパドル!), as the tension with his agency was reduced and his struggle to gain acceptance from his new wife’s three kids was finally complete, with Mei (Kawashima Umika) apparently caving in.

http://fajarsulistya.com/?p=mid-term-paper-order As we found out at the end of the previous episode, that’s Haruka’s (Yuka) former husband and the biological father to the three children. Now this, I wasn’t expecting. I suppose I should have thought of it (I’m a writer – I should be able to come up with plots like this), but the possibility slipped my mind.

In the previous episode, though, it seemed as if the agency/Kanjani 8 side of the conflict was resolved, but I’m still not happy with how that episode went. Nishikido-kun has two of the three children on his side now . . .

Papadol! Ep 05 Review

Posted on: June 21st, 2012 by tylerraiz No Comments

http://albaghdadipenang.com/?p=best-term-paper-services This episode begins exactly as we expected it would after episode four – with Yasuda Shota-kun insisting that Nishikido-kun should come clean about his marriage. So now, Nishikido-kun not only has to gain acceptance from his new children and find a way to convince his cold-hearted boss that he should stay an idol, but he also has to worry about the group members who have been his comrades for much of his life.

In any case, there isn’t really a simple answer. As usual, though, Nishikido-kun (the character) seems oblivious to the subtleties of the situation at every turn and the possibility that people won’t necessarily be honest about how they feel.

At the end of episode 3, we saw fellow Kanjani8 member Yasuda Shota-kun overhearing that Nishikido-kun was married, suggesting a new conflict for Nishikido-kun in this episode: between him and his group.

Yasuda OverhearsYasuda Thinking About What to Do

The opening gives us every reason to think that Kanjani8 will be at the center of this episode, but it isn’t. That potential conflict doesn’t really materialize yet, though Yasuda-kun returns at times through the episode, and it looks like we’ll get the Kanjani8 in the next episode.

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. He is struggling to gain acceptance from her children while simultaneously facing an ultimatum from his agency to either divorce or retire.

Nishikido TargetedPapadol Title

When we last left our hero, his new family had discovered a magazine article with a photograph of him apparently being kissed by his co-star (i.e. not the mother he’s marrying – Haruka). Haruka (played by Yuka) apparently ignores the article, knowing Nishikido-kun and accepting his explanation, but this can’t help him with the skeptical eldest daughter Mei (played by Kawashima Umika).

Explaining the ArticleIs there a problem?Haruka Reassures Nishikido

At the same time, his agency is hardly thrilled about the article, either – they’ve already shown a desire to tightly control the image of their idols. Was this incident just a one-off thing, or will there be more opportunities for the paparazzi to catch Nishikido-kun with the woman? It sure seems like there’s something brewing:

Papadol! Ep 02 Review

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.

Papadol!

When we left our hero, he faced an ultimatum from his jimusho (agency – in this case a fictionalized version of Johnny’s) – to either divorce or retire:

The Ultimatum

He has three months to make the decision. He thinks he can pursue both parts of his life without sacrificing anything, but right away things begin to go wrong, starting with his attempt to move in:

Himitsu no Arashi-chan 2012.05.10 Review

Posted on: May 13th, 2012 by tylerraiz No Comments

Himitsu no Arashi-chan (ひみつの嵐ちゃん) is the hour-long variety show hosted by Arashi. There are different segments each week, though most weeks begin with Arashi hosting a female guest.

The guest this time was the female lead of Papadol!, Yuka (優香):

Yuka

I say the female lead, though after watching the first episode of Papadol!, I have to say that Kawashima Umika did more actual acting in the drama. Maybe that will change in later episodes. Anyway, Ohno-san and Sakurai-san get cozy with Yuka-san in their new set, and I start to yawn:
