Somehow it feels like more and more manga turned into live actions movie or drama. To some extent I'm happy coz it feels like it'd be a bridge between a manga reader and non manga reader. It helps to bring a message that manga can be enjoyed by any age. Of course I'm happy for the mangaka/writer as well. Means that their work got noticed, have a chance to spread their hardwork to wider viewer and of course...royalties? That way they can continue to do more and more awesome works! Win win solution~ *throws confetti

So what's good about this drama? Hmm...If you enjoy light comedy, marriage contract themed storyline then give this a go. Above all...if you like Aragaki Yui like I do...then PLEASE WATCH THIS DRAMA! Hahahaha...that's more than enough reason ok!

Personally I find this drama to be pretty interesting despite the overly used "marriage contract" concept. How to say this ah...hmm...apart from the well chosen casts, the storyline itself also kinda fresh. It's not the usual RICH MAN x POOR WOMAN marriage contract.

This story is about a woman called Moriyama Mikuri (25) who isn't able to land on a job despite having a graduate degree in Psychology. The story starts when Mikuri's father asked her to work as a housekeeper for his client called Tsuzaki Hiramasa (36). Everything was smooth till Mikuri's parents decided to move to another area to live. She thought of an idea of something like marriage contract where she would get married to Tsuzaki, handles all the housekeeping job around the house and earns salary from it. That way she could continue doing the job, earn salary and able to stay at the current city she's living at. Luckily Tsuzaki was able to accept the idea and that's how the story starts...Hahaha. Geezz...I think I'm pretty bad at explaining. But I believe you guys get the rough image of what this drama is all about. Bubbly female character + Nerd guy = Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu!

At first glance, the main male lead might look pretty plain. But all hail to glasses! It makes every character all the more interesting! HAHAHAHA...what do you think? Glasses YES? NAY? *Please excuse this female who love glasses...trololololol* Not to forget his manly voice...so soothing to the ear!

Oh one more thing as we talk about voice!! As I was reading through Asianwiki, I found out that the main male lead...Hoshino Gen (星野 源) was the voice of Buddha in Saint Oniisan (聖☆おにいさん). Fyi, it was one of my favourite anime/manga. Small world I thought...I didn't see that coming!

Makes me more eager to watch this drama even more...LOLOLOL! Must support le beloved Aragaki Yui (新垣結衣) as well as the voice of Buddha, Hoshino Gen (星野 源).

If this wasn't enough, I must add that the ending song was GOOD too! So catchy, happy and niceeeeeeeeeee! And guess what? It was Hoshino Gen (星野 源) who sang them! Out of a sudden I'm visualizing that Buddha chara from the anime dancing to that song. Trololololol~~~

Here's the MV if you're interested to give this song a try...

That's all for today's share...Hope you'll enjoy them! HAPPY WEEKEND! :)
