Nemureru Mori no Jukujo eps 6-9

I kept waiting for this dorama to descend into mediocrity and every episode was a pleasant surprise at transplanting oujisama shoujo manga conventions into a housewife dorama can make things so fun to watch. If you want to make a fun dorama about a 50 year old lady and a 28 year old guy, its harder to imagine it being better than this.

Things move quickly in Nemureru Mori Jukujo and even when you get some prerequisite conventions such as all the obasans becoming friends and the typical ending, it doesn't linger too long as to make me hate them. I also really enjoyed Asakura Aki as the tsundere ojousan. I'm not a tsundere maniac but her tsundereness gets me excited. I think the biggest reason Nemureru Mori no Jukujo works is that it doesn't force the obasan and oujisama to fall in love. You could argue that they don't even actually do that. Its just two character interacting with each other in funny and entertaining ways.

Nemureru Mori no Jukujo has been a most pleasant surprise. It is the cream of the crop as for as housewife fantasy doramas and I can't believe its the same writer who did Kurosagi and Magma, two shows that had bad writing. Must watch for me and it took me a while to realise that the main actress was from Shall We Dansu?
