Kekkon Dekinai Otoko.......  
I was a little dissapointed in the finale for Kekkon Dekinai Otoko last night.... Anybody else? :/
It seems to be a trend lately for Jdrama, at least the ones that I did watch....

It seemed really imcomplete. :/ My mom and I were unsure if it really ended, so we ended up staying glued to the screen 'till the next show came on... I wish they showed a bit more of the future. But it was good! Saying that he couldn't marry because he couldn't think of a good house... XDD

It was cute, but....yeah, it seemed really incomplete!! I was sitting by the tv too watching until the next show (I don't understand why there were like 10 minutes of commercials between it and the next! X.x), and was shocked when yeah, it really was "over". I would have at least liked to see something a little more "official" between him and the doctor, their 'relationship' or whatever just seemed so..... not there. >.>;;

And then the girl next door (I can't remember names right now...). All this time I was hoping that she was going to steal the guy from his stupid girlfriend, and nothing! X.x Seeing endings like this makes me wonder why I bother watching them in the first place... nothing is ever really ended! X.x
Koko: awesome!clarinetkoko on September 20th, 2006 10:56 am (UTC)
Yeah, their last bickering seemed to be like the kind they always had. I thought they'd at least show a wedding scene in the end or something. o.O Since it's titled 'Kekkon dekinai Otoko' after all. XD

I thought she'd get together with Eiji, too, in the earlier shows. Everyone is supposed to get paired up with people in these kinds of dramas. XD

The ending was kind of so-so, but it was the most enjoyable drama this season. It's hard to give dramas a perfect ending... Well, I'm looking forward to Nodame Cantabile the next season, I don't have much expectations for the others. :P

I guess J-dramas don't get much money from their producers? I don't know if it's the anime adapation dramas that just gets the cut, but they're short and ending is abrupt after a good turn in the plot. And most of the ones I've seen only have up to between 10-15 episodes. :/

How was the rest of the series? I might wait for it to come out in America on Japanese TV night...

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 23rd, 2006 02:25 am (UTC)
Thank you! ^__^

I'm an elementary school teacher... though I usually try to hide the fact because I'm ashamed of it. I don't want to be a teacher anymore.. >.>;;

Whaaat?! I would love to be there again.. *sigh* .. I wasn't in the public system tho .. I taught at a kindergarten (500 of them, 1 of me) for a year .. almost killed me, but you know what they say..

What's hard is becoming a teacher in North America! :) I succeeded but it's been a trial since I got back from Japan!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 23rd, 2006 03:20 am (UTC)
Oh no, I have complete respect for real teachers in America. What I don't like about being a foreign-language teacher in Japan is that what we do is basically a joke. What I do probably has little to no impact on the kids learning, really, it's more like I'm there to be a friend to the kids. So that they can see a foreigner. X.x

On top of that, being an english teacher is the "default" job for foreigners in Japan and most japanese people know that that education is sort of a joke, and the people here are not usually in it for a career. It's what most people assume you are if you live here, though I know plenty of professional people with very different jobs. It makes me ashamed that I'm part of perpetuating that stereotype by doing that job (but it gives me a visa so I need it for now.. until I can sponsor myself). I personally don't have any interest in teaching. I'd help out my friends with their english, but above that, zero interest at all. I'm more like a kid myself, so I should be in school rather than teaching them. ^^;;;
