so i’ve just watched the live action jdrama of nobunaga concerto
right now, i’m not too keen on it, a little disappointed, but I’ll still watch it. i know it’s a more realistic take on the story, so there’s that. i’m just extremely disappointed how different they made kichou. kichou was so sweet and pure! and now she’s the total opposite. more befitting of a daughter of a man called the pit viper, but eh. it just made me dislike her.
and saburou being much more of a coward was a bit of a turn off, but hey, he was being realistic. i like that they gave him the habit of ‘running away’, gave him more of a background story and personality.
tsuneoki was really sweet too, i really enjoyed the bromance that’s already bloomed in the first episode! but the real nobunaga revealing himself (to the viewer) as akechi was a surprise.
i’ll wait for the next episode (i think it’s already aired in japan earlier today though) to be subbed and see if this dousan will be a policeman too haha.
I’ve already grumbled over Kichou and Saburou, but yes, the Akechi reveal was also kind of… wtf? They’re also doing really unpleasant things to Nobunaga/Micchi’s personality.
You noticed that too… the real Nobunaga/Mitsuhide didn’t seem unhealthy at all, and with Nobuyuki and Kichou’s comments I fear what kind of direction they’re taking him in.
The last component has arrived
I can finally summon my husband.
Is it strange that I can’t get enough of Micchi’s face, even if hidden by a mask, and even while he and Saburo look exactly alike?It’s not! :D They may have the same face but they have such different expressions (except when they’re surprised, their surprised face is the same. :D) And Micchi has such nice eyes.
He does have lovely eyes.
Beautiful, frightening, dangerous eyes.
Ayumi Ishii is so amazing that she can make such distinct characters. I’ve been staring at Micchi and Saburo’s face for the longest time to understand WHAT is actually different about them. It’s a very subtle difference.
