My first Sho drama! And one of my first Arashi dramas in general (this and Kimi wa Petto, if I remember correctly).

Kisarazu was so weird but I still liked it :D It's one of the first j-dramas in general for me so that could explain why it still holds a special place in my heart. Tbh, if I were to watch it now I'd probably drop it after a few episodes... :x lol

This drama was so hard for me to find, and then when I did I wondered if I had the attention span to actually be able to finish it, as well as the next two dramas. I mostly watched it because of Sho. Little baby(no, college-aged) Sho. Aside from that, the most touching parts were the parts that dealt with the friendship and how they handled their best friend with cancer. Even though they know they're doomed, they still try to live life to the fullest and never look at him with pity.

This is one my favourite dramas from Sho, one my all time fav jdramas as well. I so wish they had a reunion just to chit-chat about their experiences during those days, the bond that they created and all, I miss them and I don't want them to lost time making a movie because they are not young anymore, I know the possibilities are endless, but our main lead said his farewell so~

It is sincerely one of my favourites j-dramas of all time. Because it´s funny, absurd but that also touches the nostalgic and sad feeling of enjoying your last days with your friends to the fullest. I even got my boyfriend to watch it and he loves it.

First time watched, I just interest to Okada Junichi and Takashi Tsukamoto (I've watched Tiger & Dragon first, so I want to watch another series of them). But Bambi stole my heart lol He's cute but rebellious, just like me XD
