PLOT SUMMARY-

A heart-warming story of Mizuki and Yoh who lives together in a small apartment. Mizuki is a successful weather forecaster and Yoh is a struggling erotic manga writer. The story focuses on the unspoken love between these two which comes with clashes and ultimately overflow of feelings of love between them.


FIRST IMPRESSION –

It was a short about a scene where Yoh throws a tantrum drunk at Mizuki, that’s how I found out about this manga adaptation. The first thing I did was to look it up and then the rest was history. At that time only two episodes were released and when I finished binge-watching it, I couldn’t wait for the next episode.

The story was excellent and fresh and so engaging that waiting for it every week seemed like a tedious task. Despite this, it’s worth watching for people who enjoy BL content. It tops the list.


SCRIPT –

As for the script, the story is simple yet captivating. Since the story is picked up from a Manga named (TAIKAN YOHO), it adds more beauty to this live adaptation. Almost all the episodes have an excellent cliffhanger which makes this drama more exciting.


CHARACTERS –

Let’s first talk about the two main characters Mizuki and Yoh.

Mizuki being a weathercaster is cold and extremely straightforward. Since he doesn’t like speaking any extra words apart from the ones required, gives the impression of a cold personality. Mizuki follows a strict routine, which makes it challenging and frustrating for Yoh, and he starts to paint a picture that Mizuki is just taking advantage of him.

As for Yoh, he is at some parameters a reserved and introverted guy who stays at home and manages the household. In other words, cooks and cleans for Mizuki.


PACE OF THE STORY –

From a story perspective, it’s a simple one. Since there are not much of conflicts or plot twists, the story is of a normal pace. The storytelling is at a good pace without being draggy and boring. The story equally describes their personal and professional struggles which adds depth to the story telling.


CLIMAX –

Despite having unspoken verbal differences, both Mizuki and Yoh manage to open up their hearts to each other using words. Throughout the beginning of the story, we are shown the perspective of Yoh’s feelings through his thoughts.

The best part about the ending of the story is when the perspective is shifted toward Mizuki and he turns expressive of his true feelings towards Yoh. The last kitchen scene where they express their heart and clear their misunderstanding is wholesome and a perfect end to their story, topped up with the curry.


Now since we covered the Technical part of the review let’s dive straight into the emotional effects this drama has on me and probably to the ones who have seen it.


WHAT I LOVED ABOUT THIS SERIES –

I know that I should not write this coz it might seem cheeky but anyway, both of their visuals are beautiful in the frame, especially their side profiles. Someone did the casting job perfectly.

Also, the humor is light yet equally amusing. This drama is loaded with cute romantic scenes. The personality switch that Yoh has when he is drunk or when he is depressed is just an excellent performance, you completely see a different side of Yoh.

Another beautiful personality switch we see is Mizuki’s. His jealousy pushes him to the verge of expressing his long-suppressed feelings for Yoh. Which ultimately takes Yoh and the viewers with great surprise.


WHAT I FELT WAS MISSING –

After finishing this drama I realized that more plot twists could have made this story more amazing and enjoyable. They just had two conflicts one from each of their sides, there could have been some more room for other plots to enhance the beauty of this drama.
