So Long – First Night is not it

130206 AKBINGO! ep224

NOPE – No yuri to be found here.

Not even my goggles could help on this one –_-

If you are looking for yuri, this is not the place.

Maybe in fan fiction, if it does come out. >_>

Now, not to say that it sucked. Actually, for the general audience, this is pretty good. Even I admit to that.

Barring the pain of sitting through all 49 minutes of the usual JDrama-like piece, I was actually moved a little bit.

In a nutshel,

Mayuyu (who is named differently but I give no Fs so I will call them by their real names) is having a pretty hard time getting into the groove of Ballet, which is taught by Shinoda-sensei. She is so bad that Mariko-sama says she dances like a person with a dead heart (LOL, she is a cyborg Mariko-sama, they have no hearts ^^).

At least that’s what I wanted to believe but it turned out she has plenty. Plenty to fall in love for the first time with a boy…okay get this…a boy living eight years in the past!! A boy living eight frikkin years in the past who is actually in love with Mariko-sama, of eight years ago!

“…”

Yeah, I’m with you.

They are apparently communicating through a cassette recording and through their conversations, Mayuyu apparently grows a heart, which translates into her getting better at ballet, because you know, that thing is all about emotions and stuff.

Any way, something happened to Mariko-sama in the past involving that boy which led to her having a broken leg so she can’t dance anymore, not that it’s stopping her!

But she is a mean teacher and other students don’t really like her. Mayuyu doesn’t too in the beginning but when she learns of her secret, things change.

More stuff happen but the good news is that the boy died, saving Mariko-sama in the past so Mayuyu’s first love was an illusion, or dead meat now, or fertilizer, or something.

Waste of my time!

On the other characters….

Bullies everywhere, even in time and space!!!!!

Damn, even young Mayuyu is good at acting! Look at that face! Doh! How could they bully that!!!

Speaking of which, they should have played a bit more on Mayuyu and her childhood friend who had a face-heel-turn.

The yuri potential!

Sigh

  1. Hahaha, this was exactly how I felt about the episode BUT OMG–yuri potential unexpectedly showed up in episode two ;A; I think you probably watched it by now but it was great. The teaser lied I tell you it lied! In the fan fiction version Mayuyu eventually meets Yukirin along the way kekeke^^

  2. Speaking of bullies… here’s one. It’s a ME, Kragorin…
    Finally managed to watch this and my impressions were… “Why is Mayu so much better in doramas than in real life?” I almost fell for her… Thank god that I saw her acting before so I could keep my cool.
    As you said no yuri in sight in this one… Well, you might get mad at me when I say… I welcomed it… Now before you all start to throw rocks and builders as me I’ll explain myself. If this would be a yuri material then it would probably suck moose balls with cheese… If I wanted to see a yuri dorama from the 48 family I would chose the KataFina setting from SKE48. This however was… a nice try to correct the mistakes they did in Sakura kara no Tegami.
    But let’s get back to this piece shall we? As I was watching this dorama I got a feeling of similarity. I saw a movie back in 2008 called “Closed Notes” which has some similarities to this story. In that movie there’s a girl who moves in a new house and finds a diary which was left there by the previous owner or that house. The new girls starts to read the diary which speak about its owner’s feelings towards a random painter guy. In the end the new girl is falling love with that guy whom the diary talks about. This is the similar part with the AKB dorama. Too bad this “So long” song is nowhere near the YUI’s “LOVE&TRUTH”.
    So in the end this dorama was good for the casual people. For you it might be “hell” but for me it was alright… I’ve seen worse from this group before… But there was a lot of unnecessary scenes with filler characters. “If you are going to put those girls in, the at least give them a reason!” So many wasted potential… Yuihan, TakaMina, Ripopo, Moeno, Sakiko, just to name a few…

    I might watch the next one ‘tomolo’ 😀

    One is enough for a day…

    Ijou, nete mo samete mo Kragorin deshita… 😛
