episode 7 – suzuki sensei
*I don’t think it’s spoilery. it’s not detailed enough *
i must bitch the girl they casted for maruyama/ the way they had her to talk (or they way she decided to talk) was just WRONG. I HATE her f’in voice and the way she talks (I would surmise that you don’t need to undersatnd japanese to be irritated at this girl but you can let me know ). i never knew somebody could piss me off with a “hai” but this girl did it (and they showed the scene twice which is double puke). plus she talks way too slow which made the words GET OVER IT BITch echo in my head over and over) what a feat!
and she’s a hypocrite too. her words don’t match her actions. she says “let’s do this fast so we can go home”. she moves relaly fucking slow (clean REALLY slowly, walk really slowly) and she stands still for minutes (that’s what it felt like) instead of moving and whatnot. and why does it take 10 seconds to respond to suzuki- sensei only to respond with a hai that is super ear-grating and irritating.. I also think that voice she used isn’t even her real voice. it sounds so annoying. there’s no way. by fake i mean she’s making that voice which a lot of japanse women do. their voices make want to LOL in their face but i try my best to not do that. it’s so ridiculous and they sound so ridiculous and it’s just so dumb on so many levels.
something about this show is boring and dry to me. i don’t know what it is. it is interesting/well-done for what it is with the logistics and deep thinking. i hate taruko-sensei. she’s annoying. she needs to f’ off. she serves no role i wish they would stop giving her lines. i hate her voice and her haircut . it’s 2013 for f’s sakes! i still think the girlfriend is useless… any scene with her is just boring and just feels pointless. She has yet to prove her worth.
＊ korean parks look cooooooooooooool
I never thought this show could get more awkward than the 1st episode. but it does! I don’t know what’s more awkward.. this or the kanye west interview on that late night talk show post-feud.
the kawabe girl… she was really annoying too with this episode and last episode. i mean i understand her frustrations but listening to her scream is really annoying and really childish ( and i hate this about j-drama…) which makes me more shocked of her past and present etc. I remember at least one instance in this drama where somebody’s actions just was not logical and just added to melodramatics. so in general people in this show yell/scream/bawl (i thought people stopped crying like this after elementary school at least in public due to self-restraint) too much i think it’s unrealistic and it’s really annoying. a particular instance of the unrealisticness was when this girl was all upset and she started crying and she was in complete despair. I would think if i was in that situation i would leave the classroom whether it’s walking out or running out not crumbling down on my knees and then putting face down on/towards the floor (that shit’s dirty) and sobbing/bawling (bawling as in making STRANGE sounds bawling) in front of 30/40 classmates. it’s already bad enough that people are staring. i wouldn’t just leave myself in that circumstance regardless of my despair gauge. the other thing is i don’t understand by the girl couldn’t control herself and break down at a later time ro wahtever.
I thought for episode 4 or was it 5. it would’ve been so much better if they didn’t have the MEGANE kid do the evil HA HAHA LAUGH. it’s not an anime and the scene doesn’t require that at all. and whenever you do that it really kills the scene and undoes the hard-work the actor did up to the point . I don’t understand why they cannot get it right. I also thought if he didn’t talk in “that” voice the whole time it would’ve made it more realistic and better but he talked with that the voice THE WHOLE time. that just made the scene contrived.
*** so recently I watched the 4th kiss tolerance (lol it sounds weird) contest?
KISS ENDURANCE. kiss resistance.???
all these phrases are vague and sound like it could be the other way with the goal of the contest.
on god tongue and they had someone who did the eveil haha ha laugh… but his acting was AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG. it was totally believable and funny all at the same time. while for the suzuki-sensei thing it’s unintentionally ufnny and just… feels fake/forced. japan does have good acting just not in the most traditional places you’d expect it like in dramas and movies lol. the acting in the kiss tolerance contest is better than most dramas. narimatsu is definitely better than the megane kid with the evil laughh. it’s pretty difficult to pull it off…. but narimatsu did it. i totally applaud him for that. mgeane kid stop making me cringe.
all my complaints about the acting or decisions made with the acting might be due to director 演出家 (is there one in dramas? ) or producer or whatever more than the child actor…. i wouldn’t know whose fault it is. but that person needs to engage with more people because this shit is not real.
*** also i noticed one of the kids look like yamada ryousuke. i don’t remember yamada’s acting chops or how much his acting has grown since i last saw him in a drama but i wonder if yamada is better than the kid who looks like him lol. i was thinking if yamada looks too old to be in this drama full of middle schoolers and yeah he is..
p.s. after the first fantasy scene it got old reallly fast. it just felt so slow-paced and boring. i’m just like ugggggggh. thank god there was none this episode 🙂 spare me that shit but then they showed the same shit 2 or 3 times which i hate.
* some of the episodic plots were SO PEDESTRIAN so it felt so slow-paced, tedisou, and boring. i appreciate the part where suzuki-sensei talks to the kid or the teachers or whatever about his opinion and the logic and blahblah but it doesn’t change the fact that the pedestrianness is BORING. AT THIS POINT this is average school drama despite its achievements because of the pedestrianness… i recommend NOBUTA, MY BOSS MY HERO, WATASHI TACHI NO KYOKASHO, hanazakar no kimitachi e as far as school dramas go before this BY A BILLION MILES! k….
maybe god tongue is also another reason i find the fantasy scenes so boring. od tongue does it so much better and it’s so funny and the bgm/sounds effects are perfect (something I will probably never say about korean shows).
I watched this scene 10 times because it was so funnnnnny
the japanese subs are good. it’s really easy to watch/understand.
BTW about the manga. i did not read it but i did flip through it. i tihnk flipping through is enough to judge it just because of my experience anime/manga over the years and just my age that i’m older than before lol….. let me just say it made me not want to read it. the manga is pedestrian just like the drama because the drama is based on the manga. the worst part is the drawing in the manga. it’s DAMN SHITTY! lol. the level is so low. I’m so surprised they published. not to mention it’s frikin 2012 or 2013 or whatever year it was when it was published. i thought the level was supposed to go up or at least be consistent,,,, not go down like crazy. if the drawing really isn’t working for you… you should’ve teamed with kenji or whoever to draw it and you come up with the characters and story line like they did with WELCOME TO THE NHK. sometimes it’s better to have one person focus on the story and the ovreall picture while somebody focuses just on drawing and really making the most out of everything. all in all it’s unreadable in my book. i think the drawing in liar game is probably better lol… i don’t know like the drawing of liar game either. but i don’t remember having the adjectives shitty floating in my head when i saw it like i did with suzuk-sen! I just wrote this because PEOPLE ALWAYS GO OH THE MANGA/GENSAKU etc is always better but USUALLY the adapation SUCKS because the ORIGINAL sucks. i hate that trend of people blaming the adaptation for the shittiness that already existed in its previous form.
