Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu Eps 1-3

I try to avoid Aragaki Yui shows as best as I can but Mano Erina, Hoshino Gen (Blindly in Love), Ishida Yuriko and Tomita Yasuko (Suzuki sensei) are in it so it can't be that bad, right?


Unfortunately, NigeHaji is like a very bland version of Hasegawa Hiroki and Ann's comedic jdorama, Date. Like Date, two people do a marriage contract of convenience except the two people are boring as anything and have no chemistry. Not saying every character has to have a quirky personality but there's just something missing. Its the element of I'm happy to watch these two characters do anything. I'm starting to think Kaho carried Hoshino Gen in Blindly in Love.

Anyway, Ishida Yuriko's spinster aunt has more personality than the two main characters combined and no amount of cute end music dancing can save this show.

End of the day I don't give a crap about the characters and I can't believe any man would cheat on Mano Erina. The WTF development at the end of episode 3 had me yawning. NigeHaji doesn't really suck but its just boring. There are better shows out there and I would rather rewatch Date with all the koutouyuumin shinanigens. Meh.

Trying this drama for Hoshino Gen as well, the thought of "What if it's not Aragaki..." always stayed in my mind. Really feels bad since the supporting casts have tried their best on their characters.

My feeling so far to this season, not terrible as summer, but still below average. Migh expectation on Sniffer & Cold case but they both come up mediocre. Shinya Shokudo Season 4 is okay but misses the deepness in season 1. The only drama that's watachable for me is Natsume Soseki no Tsuma.

I like it. 1st episode was okay to me, 2 a little boring and cliche and 3 no sub yet... But girl, you didn't like Date??? how??? Date was one of my favorites jdoramas <3

What's wrong with Aragaki Yui? :P

surprisingly I like this. The character is kind of normal but relatable. And I like how this drama's couple are being kind to each other (I mean, contract marriage always about the man being jerk all the time), and I like all the supporting characters too

@BlueKelah: She's way overpushed.

@mike LOL. well for pushing i would put gouriki and takei more than aragaki. so far takei has been a LEAD <- lol for every single season. you should have tried watching the one from last season where she starred with hideaki bleh.

Overpushed... you mean Arimura? If you dislike Gakky, it's better to not review the drama. Because it's useless. No matter how interesting the plot is, you'll dislike it. Well, it's your loss anyway to miss this good drama. Even comparing it with DATE LOL. For sure you don't watch the drama at all.
