the otaku side of me

All brain; no heart

February 7, 2011

This weekend was spent watching the King’s Mr. Brain. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to watch it. But since I had time to kill, I watched it. I wasn’t disappointed! — I think.

The series was fine, I think. It wasn’t exceptional, but it was bearable. I did make the effort to sleep at 5am so I can finish watching it. Yet as what is in my title, it was all brain; there was very little heart. Sure the characters had their moments- but there was no emotional content to it.


I would have wanted more from Mr. Brain’s character. The assistant was funny but naïve and somehow detached. The other supporting characters were just there to support Mr. Brain. The cases were thought provoking, I guess or I simply just wasn’t thinking; as is my normal mode when I am watching these kinds of series.

Kimura is getting old. Yes, I said it! Well, I know everybody is supposed to know that but I just saw Love Generation a couple of weeks ago so I was kinda shocked to see him. There was like a decade gap; that figures.


I’m not sure though if they had it in their mind to make a sequel since the bad guy was still free. I’m even more unsure if I would want to watch the sequel, if ever they decide to make one.

Something I did appreciate about it was all the stuff they said about the brain. I can’t be certain majority of them are facts but hey- additional info is always good. I might have a better way of seeing whether people lie or not. Thanks to Mr. Brain- if a person looks downwards to the right, most probably they’re lying. Haha.

So for that- thank you Mr. Brain!


good enough

Yes, First Kiss was good enough for me!


Honestly, I did not want to invest in this drama. I know the ending anyways, so that would be ok. But being the otaku that I am- I still did. But I did skip from Episode 1 to 11, then back to 6 onwards. I was only curious as to how Mio and Yuki-sensei got together.  Sure, Yuki-sensei did turn me off, but they did call him ikemen doctor. Fortunately though, I got used to his face and the boy knows how to smile. I must say I would forgive him also, had I been in Mio’s shoes. Sure, he stood her up on their 1st date but he sure made up for it! Gyah! I am becoming teary-eyed just thinking about the 2 of them. I do hope they get back together.

I must say that Onii-chan’s relationship with Takagi-sensei is also sweet.
