Ashita no Yakusoku Eps 1

Ashita no Yakusoku is yet another jdorama about scary and controlling moms.  Inoue Mao is the school counsellor with her own mommy problems and she hasn't even introduced her boyfriend of 3 years to her mother. She gets involved with a student who has been absent from school and has Nakama Yukie for a freaky mom.

To be honest, I am getting sick of the creepy mother genre having seen at least 3 or 4 of such shows within the past year and I was struggling to feel any empathy for any of the characters.

The episode ends with something big happening but I didn't care. There's a hint that that there are more rotten things happening in the school but I have no interest. I can't say that Ashita no Yakusoku does anything bad but I'm just ambivalent about a counsellor telling other people to free themselves from the crappy mother while she herself is stuck with hers. Meh.

Nah, a lot of people said this one was so good, but i have to agree with you that this show has some flaws. There is a fun drama this season, called Keiji Yugami. Though i'm not sure whether you'll like it or not. Kaneshiro Kazuki's new drama was meh for me

Keiji Yugami is good. The production quality makes me think it's done by some Wowow folks. I can't pinpoint what is wrong with Ashita but I can't be bothered to follow up.
