Boku no Aruku Michi ep 7

Fucking beautiful episode. This show is really growing on me. I'm enjoying its simplicity more and more and how small things like Teruaki deviating from his bicycle route can be be such a powerful moment. I wasn't so crazy about the show in the beginning because it was more about Teruaki and his autism. He's without personality and there's not much empathy. But now its more about the people around him, and in this episode, its Kotaro's mom.

If all Japanese moms are milfs, how does that explain 40 year old men obsessing over joushi-kouseis?

Kotaro's mom is a milf but she's the bitch of the show and I'm glad that they've soften up her character a bit and we finally get a glimpse Kotaro's dad. There's not much story to be done around his mom and the father is an interesting character. He's not an asshole to Teruaki and yet there's this detachment from everything. I'll to see some story about his past; coming to terms with Teruaki, his father and taking care of the family.

Karina is hot hot hot. I feel so tempted to get CA to Oyobi just for her......

This show has freaking babe factor. The only downside is that they don't get much screen time. Miyako-chan is the type of women men dream about but never meet and its kinda sad that she's taken a back seat storyline wise after marriage. They've gone with the compulsory new husband is not all that he's cracked up to be bit. No idea where its going to go but it impossible her future's with Teruaki.

Rina + Megumi = hawtness. Wish this scene would stretch for at least 5 mins.

And Teruaki's sis, Rina is getting hotter by the episode. They should have an episode dedicated to Megumi. So much babe factor, so little screen time. :( And I'm enjoying Teruaki's older brother type relationship with Kenta. The only people who Teruaki had an attachment to are his mom and Miyako and its nice to see him connect with Kenta.

I have to say that this is now my pick for best dorama this season. The only show I haven't really watched is Sailor Fuku. I'm tempted to watch it raw though. If you haven't seen this show, give it a try, its slow, methodical but its consistent and there's a lot of really nice moments. And lets not forget the babe factor. :)

I agree, this is the best drama hands down this season. Its quality has gotten better after couple of episodes and it's been consistently good ever since all the way to ep 8. I definitely give this drama my full attention when I watch it and enjoy every moment of it. I hope to see some kind of blooper scenes in the last episode that show Kusanagi in non-autism mode just so my mind can readjust for whatever next drama he's going to be in.

I'm trying to get a hold of other 2 'Boku' series this writer has down in the past. Hopefully those will be good too.

I agree about the babe factor too. Sure the ladies aren't exactly heavy-hitters, but oh they're all so graceful and charming.
