Double Tone ~Futari no Yumi~ ep 1
This season just keeps getting better and better. I was attracted to Double Tone's premise, two women named Yumi start to see each other lives in their dreams. We see what happens during on Yumi's day and then the other Yumi wakes up with that knowledge and so on and so forth. It makes for some interesting drama when they run into people the other Yumi interacts with in dreams.
During the first episode, I was thinking the two Yumis can't meet up right away. They need to milk this concept first before they get together and we get to the next phase of the story. The at the end of the episode, this huge reveal happens that changes everything.
What a great episode. Sell the high concept and then end with a twist that had me scrambling to pandora.tv and dailymotion for episode 2 to no avail. Gaaaaaahh, I want to see what happens!!!! Japanese subs for ep 2 have already been uploaded to jpsubber though and sadly Japanese subs for ep 1 are not available. Whoever decides to sub episode 1 is going to have to time it which is half the work.
Someone please sub this so furransu will upload ep 2. It'll hopefully show up on pandora.tv sooner or later. Hope NHK don't stuff Double Tone up cause they can do some great drama with the concept. Low level Japanese is sufficient for this except for some job talk. Jadefrost's synopsis should get you through it otherwise.
