Taiyo no Uta ep 5

This show has too much of a 'been there done that' feel. However, I really like the additions to the storyline from the movie. Sekachu and Ima Ai ni Yukimasu didn't deviate or add much from the movies so they really had to stretch the episodes. The movie would have been better if they had put the Asami storyline in and quickened the pace.

Basically what I'm saying is that the longer this series delays the doom and gloom, the better. In fact they should move through it fast like the movie but I'm guessing the producers will want to milk it for all its worth.

End of the day, I'll watch anything with Sawajiri Erika in it. Its a crying shame that her scenes are at night and usually outdoors. For TBS's next show they should get the main actor from Ichi Litre and Ayase Haruka and do a show about a conman who goes after girls with fatal diseases and and a girl who cons ppl by claiming to have one! Hhmm, I think it would make a funny comedy.

This genre is something that should be done only once in a while because the more you do it, the more it becomes a parody of itself. Its a very heavy subject that's somewhat rigid in terms of variation and feel. You can cast different actors in all sorts of boy meets girl stories and they'll al feel different. But girl with deadly disease? Someone please cast Sawajiri Erika in a comedy next....
