Starring Sato Arata and Oriyame Nao as main leads, Takara-kun to Amagi-kun is a high school drama about, well, high school. Of course, the shots, the picturisation, and the direction in itself were good. I thought the dialogue writing was fascinating as well, but their delivery did not sit right with me. The depth was missing. It was not all bad though, it was a cute story about two high school kids. You can definitely go for it if you want to watch pure fluff.
I just want to say, that Sex Education is blatantly queer.
Webtoons are a new rage, and they definitely should not be ignored. Manga may be the OG storytelling medium in visuals as well as written text, but Manhwa has recently gained popularity, and rightfully so.
2022 has been the year of webtoon adaptations. Starting from Semantic Error which broke the internet to Cherry Blossom After Winter, the bar has been set too high. Another webtoon adaption, A Shoulder to Cry On, will make its way to the screens soon and today we bring you its webtoon review. Written and illustrated by Dongmul, A Shoulder to Cry On is a coming-of-age story of two boys trying to deal with life. You can read the story officially on Lezhin.
I really do not know how to describe Fudanshi Bartender no Tashinami, because the way I spent the last hour howling on my couch would describe it as funny, but it does not seem to cover the entirety of what it was. The show is eye-wateringly-hilarious. Especially for the fudanshis and fujoshis out there. There wasn’t even one situation where I could not relate to the guy. I was fangirling, just like him, the entire time.
I have always thought the shots used in Japanese BLs are beautiful. I felt the same way about ‘My Beautiful Man’, even the BL anime, “Sasaki to Miyano”. Now, I feel the same way about Takara-kun to Amagi-kun.
Takumi-kun Series 1: And The Spring Breeze Whispers (2007) is a movie that speaks volumes about the early works of the BL genre.
Semantic Error drama quite literally took the internet by storm. If it was not famous enough as a webtoon, which it was; it reached new heights with the live adaptation. I cried tears of joy when I saw an excellent webtoon adaptation for once. Live actions can go either way, as we all are aware, but this one was a welcome change. The plot is definitely no error, and neither are the characters. In my opinion, it is pretty unique. But today, we bring you some subtle and some big differences between the manhwa and the live adaptation.
Sometimes you come across a series which opens up an entirely new world for you. That is what happened to me. My first ever BL drama was Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! (we’ll call it just Cherry Magic for now because the name is huge) and it lives so close to my heart that sometimes I am not able to like anything else just because my expectations are so high. There are so many moments that I love and so many scenes which live in my heart. Cherry Magic is a sweet natural romance with a tiny bit of supernatural.
