Long Love Letter ~Drifting Classroom

Rongu Rabureta ~Hyouryuu Kyoushitsu
“Live for the Moment” is the opening in a collage of images, Kubozuka Yosuke (Strawberry on the Shortcake, Ikebukuro West Gate Park) stars as Asami Akio, he is sitting on a park bench looking at the name Misaki Yuka on his lighted cell, he makes up his mind not to call and puts the cell in his bag on the bench. A women sits next to him and hands him a bag of chestnuts, when he looks up both the bag and woman have vanished. Earlier that evening he had met Asami played by Tokiwa Takako (Beautiful Life, Metro ni Notte) in a bookstore as they both reached for the same book “In Search of Lost Time” by Marcel Proust. They then sit and chat while having a coffee and exchange cell numbers. This all occurred a year previously as Asami is explaining to his home room class.
This is how one of the most amazing and unusual drama I’ve seen starts out. I knew nothing about the plot prior to watching it; in fact I’ve had it for quite a while but just figured it was some kind of school romance as it’s supposed to be a romance and science fiction. But I really loved the way the story has interwoven the science fiction and romantic elements. The cast is exceptional along with the two stars the students are played by Yamada Takayuki (Densha Otoko, H2), (Proposal Daisakusen, Stand Up!!), Tsumabuki Satoshi (Orange Days, Slow Dance), Mizukawa Asami (Yamada Taro Monogatari, Nodame Cantabile) . Kubozuka has come full circle from middleschool student in GTO, high school in Strawberry on the Shortcake to teacher in this drama. If you don’t hate romance or science fiction I think you should give this drama a try, in many ways it’s one of the most unexpected dramas, science.
