Ryokiteki na Kanojo猟奇的な彼女Ep.1 Screen Caps

My Sassy Girl
The drama begins at an aquarium, Masaki Saburo played by Kusanagi Tsuyoshi (Narita Rikon, SMAP) is in the dolphin tank, Kisaragi Haruka played by Suzuki Emi (Yukan Club, Long Love Letter) is listening by a computer for the sounds made by the dolphins, but the man holding the microphone Kazushima Kensaku played by Tanihara Shosuke (Deru Toko Demasho!, Mop Girl) is trying to pick up girls and doesn’t even have the microphone in the water. Later in the parking lot, Kensaku is giving Saburo advice on group dates, but is surprised to learn that Saburo already has a girlfriend and in fact that evening is planning to take the relationship to the next level. When he arrives at her apartment with a large bouquet of flowers he finds the Japan Korea soccer game on and his girlfriend in bed with a Korean man. Dejected he stands and waits for a train but notices a very drunk woman, Takami Riko played by Tanaka Rena (Drug Store Girl, Gegege no Kitaro) near the edge of the platform, she staggers back but as the train approaches he has to grab her and drag her back to prevent her from being struck. He gets her safely on the train, but then she harasses a schoolboy into giving up his seat for an old lady, then she throws up all over Saburo. He winds up having to carry her and not knowing who she is or where she lives he takes her to a Love Hotel, and that’s where his problems really begin.

This is based on my favourite romantic comedy, a Korean movie, My Sassy Girl. After having such high expectations for Hachimitsu to Clover I approached this drama with trepidation, but I’m really happy to say that by the time Saburo was carrying Riko around I was very pleasantly surprised. The casting is just perfect, Kusanagi Tsuyoshi as the mild mannered man and Tanaka Rena as the rough and ready girl that meet by fate on the platform. I highly recommend this to romantic comedy fans who liked Long Vacation or Kimi Wa Petto, stories about two people from different worlds who just might get together.
