Last Friendsラスト・フレンズ– Release April 08

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!
Japan Drama Story:
This drama is about the story of 5 people that trying to built a better life in this cruel reality world. Aida Michiru (Nagasawa Masami) 長澤まさみ, Kishimoto Ruka (Ueno Juri) 上野樹里, Mizushima Takeru (Nagayama Eita) 永山瑛太, Takigawa Eri (Mizukawa Asami) 水川あさみ and Ogura Tomohiko (Yamazaki Shigenori) 山崎樹範 found each other and stay together in a share house. Each of them has their personal problems which most youngsters are facing in this modern world. Violence, abuse, freedom, divorce, loves and happiness is among the things that they are struggling to deal with and understand. Even so they manage to find support and laughter when they are together. Helping each other and watching others get through life gives them strength to survive in this world.
Feelings and comments:
We always say that life is better and easier today when comparing to 50 years ago. The truth is life is never easy or better no matter where or when you’re born. People that are 50 to 80 years old different normally cannot understand the pain and difficulties each went through. The least we can do is respect their experience. Young generations nowadays mostly do not have difficulties in earning money to live on. Their problems mostly related to previous generation or pressure from the society. We normally are told by our grandparents that if you’re able to have a decent meal, a shelter and your loves then it is considered a happy life. Nowadays these 3 criteria are just the basic things that you need in order to have a happy life. That means there are other things required for being happy.
Aida Michiru (Nagasawa Masami) 長澤まさみ and Kishimoto Ruka (Ueno Juri) 上野樹里 are really great in this drama. Especially Kishimoto Ruka (Ueno Juri) 上野樹里 is really cool with her bike. The share house is special in this drama. Having able to have 5 friends that are able to get along to stay together is just great. We are able to experience this mostly during college time or the first few years of our working life. After a few years we meet our partners and move on to a new house.
Things that caught my eyes:
The character Kishimoto Ruka (Ueno Juri) 上野樹里 really is cool. She got most of my attention through out the whole series.
Japan Drama Rating:
Worth watching it. Feels like a Japanese version of US comedy friends. Just that this drama is more realistic with problems youngsters facing now.
