Kekkon Dekinai Otoko Ep 8 + 9

Ep 8

I would never have thought that the best actor in this ep is Ken-chan. That dog has more facial expressions than Fukada Kyoko. Kuwano bonding with Ken-chan is just hilarious. Its what so great about the series: no need to spell out what is happening. Its all about facial expressions and what is not said.

Its hard to describe how funny this ep is. You can say Kuwano and Ken-chan have chemistry, lol. Somehow, they just seem so alike. And when Michiru came back, you can see the sadness as if Ken-chan is saying that Michuru's his bitch and he can't leave her or something lol.

I've noticed the cashier at the combini is not bad. No wonder kuwana goes every ep, lol.

Ep 9

No man can resist such a kawaii egao, not even a kekkon dekinai otoko...

OMFG, the funniest ep so far. Everyone thinks that Kuwano has gotten a young girlfriend and hilarity ensues. Normally, I find plots about misunderstanding a big waste of time. Except in this ep, its to show how everyone reacts to the news. Kuwana is like one of those friends that when bad things happen to you, he has it worse. So what happens when the person who everyone compares themselves to succeeds? Everyone goes bonkers.

The girl is cute, though she has lazy eyes. Its a shame that she's not in the episode longer but from a storyline point of view, she served her purpose. Hhmm, need to find out her name.

Nothing excites me more than two ladies hiding behind a bush......

You know how its going to end. And its nice that they dun beat around the bush. And they take the chance to further Kuwano and Natsumi, but as always their conversation ends with her storming off. We get a bit of Ken chan thrown in. Its funny how though the supporting characters don't have stories to tell, the pacing is still very fast.

Hey aren't u Imoko's onechan? Imoko imoko imoko!
Everything in this show still resolves around Kuwano and yet it never slows down. Usually a dorama requires decent side stories to keep it going. IMO, its all because of the excellence of the script.

If you're not watching this show, get it. Trust me, its too fucking good to not watch. Every current series just bloody pales in comparison that I don't feel like watching them. Perhaps this is Abe Hiroshi's definitive role besides the Trick series. I enjoy watching it without and then with the subs. I'll probably rewatch the whole thing after it ends.

Damn!! I thought that girl looked kinda familiar. It's Mitsuya Yoko! She was pretty popular gravure idol a few years back if you don't know her.

Apparently she played a guest role in Hana Yori Dango, too...

Thanks for the info! If she was in Hana Yori Dango, then I must be blind...
