Kare wa Imouto no Koibito
Kare wa Imouto no Koibito is BeeTV drama starring Ishihara Satomi and, Michishige Sayumi and one dude who always plays forgettable supporting guys in doramas. If I'm not mistaken BeeTV is some channel for mobile phones and it KIK actually ran in 10 minute episodes. My main interest in watching this is to see Michishige Sayumi. If you don't know who she is, watch this. Guaranteed to make you laugh.
Sayumi is the only shining light in Momusu nowadays, not that I really keep track. Their music has been so bland for so many years and they've stopped being the best HP! group a long, long time ago. However, Sayumi's TV persona is awesomely funny and in KIK, she plays Ishihara Satomi's devilish cute younger sister who sets her eyes on her sister's high school crush. Satomi is of course playing the innocent, dojikko older sister.
The whole thing runs like a two hour movie and plays pretty well despite being joined from 10 episode segments. Its pretty much standard shoujo style story but I very much enjoyed the humour which mostly consists of Sayumi being the cute devil that she was born to play. As expected, Sayumi really steals the show and Satomi does a decent job of being the nice sister and the only person who is aware of Sayumi's true face. Nothing special but pretty watchable dorama movie.
