Black President eps 2-4
Is it a coincidence that Dan Mitsu is appearing in both my two favourite doramas at the moment, Black President and Coffee-ya? lol. Ozaki Masaya is on a roll with his writing.
WHAT I LIKED
+ Mitamura shachou's argument for mini-skirts. lol
+ Mitamura's reason for coming to university.
+ The look of horror on Kuninaka Ryoko's face (not pictured) when shachou picked up the pen at the end of ep 2 expecting him to give the pen argument. lol A great example of Ozaki Masaya writing great jokes without punchlines or explanation.
+ Black President vs White President in ep 3. I love that the answer in the end is not so black and white.
+ The Yuri character played by Kadowaki Mugi. She's the go with the flow character who's looking for some direction in life. She's very different from your archetypal characters.
+ The president doing good things for selfish reasons. That's how you keep a progatonist 'bad guy' interesting plus finding out his true motive is fun.
+ The president's people manipulation reminds me of Doctors. In the above shot, he says wearing an apron will make a girl 30% more popular. lol. He forgot to mention hadaka apron is a 100% increase.
+ Mitamura losing control when confronted by things he doesn't like and his entertaining preaching.
+ Black President has plenty of eye candy and brains, the perfect combination. I'm talking about the show of course.
- Still not feeling the chemistry between Kuroki Meisa and Sawamura Ikki.
- My stomach rumbling like crazy at in ep 4 with all the yakisoba and continuing to do so as I write this.
Absolutely must watch dorama. Can't believe no one is subbing Black President. This season is so good, I haven't had time to do anything else.
