Hatachi no Koibito Screen Caps
I wasn’t really impressed by this drama’s first episode, the supporting cast is good with Morishita Aiko (Ikebukuro West Gate Park, Kisarazu Cat's Eye) playing Keisuke’s wife and Ichimura Masachika (Bambino!, My Boss My Hero) his friend a famous novelist. Tsukamoto Takashi (Teppan Shoujo Akane!!, Tokkyu Tanaka San Go) plays Yuri’s college friend and Kimura Midoriko (Yasashii Jikan, Star no Koi) her mother. I found this first episode very slow and while I understand that introductory episodes have to impart a lot of information to get the story started the scene in the karaoke bar just seemed to go on forever and I was getting as bored as the employees who were sneaking away as Keisuke reminisces. Later the episode’s pace picked up but even though I’m old I don’t want to see the 50 year old married salary man wind up with the 20 year old co-ed. But that may not be where the series is headed anyways so I’ll watch a few more episodes to see how the pacing is, there’s not a lot of subbed fall drama season released yet so I'll give this another chance.
