This is the 2nd drama I've finished this break (Well, 3rd if you count SakiBoku but I don't count that in as I watched SakiBoku ongoing-ly~)
I honestly didn't expect much at first: I was just interested seeing more than 1 Arashi members + Tabe Mikako in a drama and also because the theme seemed cheerful, like I need something to heal my heart after watching Maou LOL
So ya, I went with YamaTaro and guess what, I couldn't stop watching and finished 9/10 episodes in one day (I really could've finished them in one day had my internet not lag, like it took me hours to finish episode 1 XD).t
Not going to mislead you, it really is a cheerful drama. But aside from cheerful, it also has a really simple-yet-sweet plot, which I didn't expect. Furthermore, all the characters are really well-written and each has a characteristic unique to themselves.
It really is a great drama that made me both laugh and cry, honestly!( Collapse )
Yamada Tarou Monogatari really exceeded my expectation. Not a typical school drama that simply revolves around school and mostly romance, YamaTaro carries a lot of simple-yet-deep life lessons:
1. Communication is important, whether it's with friends or family.
2. No matter how hard the life is, as long as you're working to make those whom you care for happy, the hard work will pay off.
3. Taken from The Yamada's Rules, combined together: even small things can make you smile as long as you can see the value in it.
Ya honestly, I didn't expect myself to cry watching this drama, but the family parts really touched my heart that I actually cried XDD
In nutshell, Yamada Tarou Monogatari is a great drama!
