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.

Suzuki-sensei

Posted in Uncategorized by choronghi.WORDPRESS.COM on September 28, 2013

So I saw the firs t2 eps of this drama with the japanese subs! yay.  for the first episode the last 5 minut esor so had no more japaese subss!! but luckily i was able to catch everything anyway. it just took me a minute to catch/figure out 福祉委員会. IT’S SORTA tricky with the iiiiiiiii.

https://i0.wp.com/imageshack.us/scaled/landing/855/do5o.png

reasonsI wanted to watch it was because it’s based on a manga, hamspasukebe likes it, i remember seeing interesting/shocking screenshots in his post, ch-reviews are good, and there’s japanese subs.

My only resevation with these kinda shwos is that they tend to be boring in that they are banal since school tends to involve trivial/pedestrian topics ie joou no kyoushitsu. they cannot help the pedestrian topics since it IS  a school drama.

My thoughts thus far are…

https://i1.wp.com/imageshack.us/a/img842/8817/abdw.png

maybe the drama would’ve been better with another lead actor.. or is the suzuki-sensei  character supposed to be sorta dull. his acting is good it’s just.. something about it is boring. the fantasy stuff is just like eh… it reminds me of gto which is really meh. like i said before certain eps of the anime are interesting but for the most part it’s slow/draggy. i love the smart blonde girl /her arc though.

I didn’t like the goukonscene nor the love interest because those were boring ass scenes. if nothing significant/intresting happens with the love interest i’ll be pissed…. since tehre have been boring scenes with that.

the teacher… foot-ko. lol. i thought her name was haruko at first? i think it’s taruko?  uhhh i think her acting is awfulllllllllllllllllll. it’s very fake/unrealistic. it’s quite frightening actually to see somebody talk/carry them selves like that. i really doubt there are japanese teachers like that.  at first when suzuki sensei said oh wen she over-smiles by a lot blahblah i was like okay that matches her acting. but then she acts like that even after the fact. i wish they hired someone else to play this teacher.

1st episode’s plot was interesting ドン引き (sorta glad i watched the ep lol. it made me think about it.. there’s a bunch of issues like this where you tell the kids dont do tat but then you don’t have a good answer/back-up reasoning prepared with all the details and conditions etc… and after suzuki-sensei went through all the motions i felt enlightened lol). 2nd one was definitely not AS … how can it be. but i do relate the kid and his way of thinking. sorta reminds me of when i read books written by honda takayoshi. i just really relate. i hate people who don’t understand people who think that way.. by not understand i mean those DULL people that talk all day at 100 decibels/accomplish nothing while pissing people off while being completely oblivious to the fact that they’re pissing people off. something about the eps are like slow-paced as in boring to me… like i wish there wre more twists or another plot going on at the same time.  yeah i’m having high expectations …. the ones i have with american tv shows.

https://i2.wp.com/imageshack.us/scaled/landing/707/4mys.png

my last gripe is lack of main characters. suzuki is bleh at this point. there’s like 30 kids in his class and none of them are really main characters you know with the character development etc etc (you know how in hanazakari no kimitachi he they had a bunch of characters that stand out as the main characters/ major-minor characters etc ) and i most certainly do not remember anyone’s name except ogawa.  I have a feeling most of the kids will just be used for a one ep shitk for whatever episodic topic/experiment. i hate that the most because there’s not enough depth… so i’m hoping it is not what i’m suspecting.

I’ve only seen 2 eps and this turned into a movie so hopefully it gets real good. but the thing is  A LOT OF SHITTY dramas also turn into SPECIALS and movies. WORD WORD WORD.

korean thing

love this word

허송 [虛送]
[명사·하다형 타동사]時を空しく[無意に]過ごすこと。
【예】허송 세월하다. 【訳】 無意に歳月を送る。

I haven’t seen it used so far and i don’t think this word exists in japaense with this exact kanji combination.  i like the kanjis and the meaning. yeah the definition is sorta depressing but anyways i just like it for some reason.

speaking of this topic I was thinking about games. I’m not sure if i mentioned it before but I just find it so wasteful. if you have time to play stupid games like on iphone/ipad/etc etc then you have no excuse to be anything less than bilingual (at least understand 2 languages fluently). I really mean that in a positive/sincere way because there’s so many misconceptions surrounding language-learning… i just find it so so sad and depressing that people aren’t using time …. by time i mean enough time to become fluent or close to fluent or whatever on complete shit. people sometimes argue about tv vs video games but i would say tv > video games. i mean it obviously depends on the show and everything but at lesat in tv you might learn vocab/acting/ or learn something but video games is just… of course it depends on the game too with strategy games andwhatnot but come on… i just feel like the ones you just click frantically or type franticaly are just… insulting intellience-wise. so that’s why generally speaking tv pwns game by a lot as far as getting shit accomplished. but my main gripe is about the DEAD TIME. time that could’ve spent on something. i just don’t feel like you gain anything from games as in knowledge or whtaever… yo ucould be exerciseing ( no seriously it’s so scary reading about your risk of diabetse and whatnot ona minute by minute basis depending on the circumstances of your ass)  with that time etc.

i have a feeling if they did some kind of experiment comparing heavy video-gamers vs. people who get shit done they’ll notice significant disparities in the video-gamers with their vocabulary or ability to expres themselves. i was wondering if being an introvert compromises your ability to express yourself.. since to improve speaking you speak a lot… so in that way since introverts prefer to spend mots of their blahblahing instead of talking about nothing endlessly maybe the extroverts would have an upper hand. BUT THEN i thought of ariyoshi, bakarizumu, and wakabayashi (not sure about him because of his haters pointing out his japanese errors) who are HITO MISHIRI, ONNA NO KO NIGATE, and some other stuff . they are both shy but when they talk on their job ( the talk/variety shows) they say some GOOD SHIT. a lot of SEIRON. they word it PERFECTLY. there’s  no guda guda or dumbed-downedness or anything. they just are good at using their mouths. they’ve both been on GOD TONGUE which is all about talking circles around people and being smart.  and input in an important aspect too. i know 2

https://i0.wp.com/imageshack.us/a/img853/24/yfcd.pngextroverts that don’t accomplish shit (maybe it’s also an iq thing… )  and have the dumbest conversations that go for eons and eons and i notice how vapid their speech is. they may use idioms but they use the most boring ones in the most boring way possible. it’s like… chuu byou as in no smarter than middle schoolers. i’m wondering how you can spend your whole day doing that. most importantly how can you suck at speaking english that much when all you do is converse all day in english. i was thinking if you just talk all day then you’re not inputting much at alllllll ie reading books etc etc. these 2 people talked to each other all fuckin day so there isn’t much challenge/growth or whatever with the conversing not that conversations have to be that tiring/challenging and whatnot. i personally would’ve gotten bored talking either of them within the first 5 minutes but i say would’ve becuase i’m introverted… most conversations do not continue past 1 minute with me lol. i don’t think im’ as good as explaining my feelings/thoughts and whatnot as much as ariyoshi or bakarizmu. conclusion-wise i’m just saying you need INPUT AND OUTPUT…. if it’s just PURE OUTPUT WHY THE FUCK would you improve as in my example.

honestly most people have a desire to learn a language right? like that language sounds so cool (japanese whateve rwhatevre) or it sounds so hard i’ll feel so proud if i learn it or it’s their heritage/genetically-bound/obligated language or they have mad interest in the media that country pumps out or there’s some famous person from that country that you want to undersatnd on a deeper level or there’s people in your life who use that language etc etc. it’s just really easy to come up with a reason to learn any language and i don’t see why people shouldn’t go for it especially now-a-days with the technology… but instead peopelare just rotting with games. i call taht time sink. dead dead dead time. people can do SO MUCH BETTER. im’ not referring to the dating shit… im’ talking about IMPROVING YOURSELF.

THIS WAS THE SHIT. SO FUNNY. i’m a fan of daikichi now . no i don’t like boring japanese gags. this isn’t just some stupid jaapnese gag. it’s more than that it’s GOD TONGUE
