Kokoro ga Pokitto ne Eps 1-3
Kokoro ga Pokitto ne is a quadrangle love story that's pretty boring. We have a divorced couple played by Abe Sadao and Yamaguchi Tomoko. Abe Sadao is a former salaryman who broke down and got divorced and is now working at a furniture repair shop run by Fujiki Naohito who is always happy go lucky and is never worried.
Yamaguchi Tomoko changed her name and is forever obsessed with her blog and is dating the furniture boss. The fourth character is a tall, young woman who views furniture boss as her god and gets to fixated over anyone she falls in love with.
The theme is this show is that everyone has mental problems. Abe Sadao doesn't like people anymore but its more he is surrounded by super annoying people. Furniture boss's naivety is has not been utilised yet Yamaguchi Tomoko's character seems super shallow doing things for her blog. I'm guilty of it as well but she takes it to the extreme. She's just annoyingly boring. The fourth character, I don't give a crap about. I just think she is miscast.
I really wanted to quit after episode 2 and gave Okada Yoshikazu one more episode but its just not funny nor are the characters interesting. The concept is but the execution is lacking. Really boring for me. Maybe it'll finally get going somewhere in the middle but its too late for me. Avoid.
