Yume wo Kanaeru Zo夢をかなえるゾウ– Release Oct 08

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
Hoshino Asuka (Mizukawa Asami) 水川あさみis a young office lady that always dreams to marry a fine young man and live a happy life. At her 25th birthday as things seems to be going well, everything changes over night as she lost his boy friend and her apartment. What’s left for her is an unsecure job, a bag of cloths and a small old temporally apartment. As she is crying out loud for her bad luck and the losses, the elephant god Ganesha (Furuta Arata) 古田新太 appears. Apparently this is the same old apartment that the elephant god Ganesha (Furuta Arata) 古田新太helps Nogami Kohei (Oguri Shun) 小栗旬few years ago. This time it is Hoshino Asuka (Mizukawa Asami) 水川あさみthat needs help to regain her happiness.

Feelings and comments:
No doubt that the story of this drama is crazy and interesting. You can find a lot of teaching in this drama that is useful in our daily life. Honestly I really have a hard time watching this drama at the beginning. Perhaps maybe it is because of Oguri Shun (小栗旬). I was expecting to see more of Oguri Shun (小栗旬) but instead he only appears few minutes in the first episode only. Maybe due to this disappointment that makes me difficult to continue watching this drama. After dragging this drama to episode 2 and 3, I finally get into it as the story seems interesting.
I suppose the special edition of this drama should move to the end until this drama finish. That will give Mizukawa Asami (水川あさみ) a chance to actually build up her character into the audience.

Sometimes we are taught by our grandparents about things that we should do and should not do. These teaching are difficult to understand by youngsters as it only can be justified later. These teaching have been passing on from generation to generation as it was proven by time and experience that it is meant for good. As time passes by, a lot of these teaching disappear and lost as they are no longer suitable nowadays. Still we have to remember it. We don’t have to practice them but at least we need to preserve these teaching as it is evidence or a historical proved that our grandparents existed.

Things that caught my eyes:

The elephant face with the long nose sure is interesting. But I’m more curious about the quotes and the famous historical people. Especially the quote “If you don't have bread eat cake".

Japan Drama Rating:
Fun to watch. There are lots of crazy ideas towards the pursuit of happiness.
