Okaasan, Musume wo Yamete ii desu ka? Episodes 1-6
+ Its a psychological show about a mom and daughter who are too relient on each other. Daughter lives to please mother and looks at her mom's face before making decisions while mom encourages such behaviour and treats her like a doll.
+ Its an analogy of Japanese society in that its about trying to hard to please other people and putting up with things to the point of putting on too much stress on oneself.
+ The father's company wants to get rid of him and puts him in a room with other colleagues doing menial jobs, trying to get them to quit out of boredom. I've read about such things in the news but its the first time I've seen it in jdoramas that I can remember.
+ The parallel between Haru's story and her student's.
+ The acting is not bad. Nothing to complain about.
+ Get to see how Japanese actually learn English in class and it explains a lot of things. lol
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
- This 'wall' appears in episode 6 and I did not buy the build up.
- Not confident in the ending despite liking the characters.
= They managed to make the Smurfs Lullaby into such an ominous song. :)
Surprisingly watchable. Let's see where the last two episodes go.
