Buzzer Beatブザー・ビート – Release July 09

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
Kamiya Naoki (Yamashita Tomohisa) 山下智久 is a professional basketball player. He is good but still unable to give his best performance on the basketball court. His has a girl friend name Nanami Natsuki (Aibu Saki) 相武紗季 who is a cheerleader and works in the basketball team management. Shirakawa Riko (Kitagawa Keiko) 北川景子 is a violinist who struggle to become a professional. Temporally she has to work in a bookstore until she finds a job that suits her professional. One day Kamiya Naoki (Yamashita Tomohisa) 山下智久 accidentally left his cell phone in the bus and was later found by Shirakawa Riko (Kitagawa Keiko) 北川景子. Faith brought them together but they both have somebody else next to them. It wasn’t long until both of them knew that they were meant for each other.

Feelings and comments:
I like to play basketball and always keep tracks on the NBA news. This gives me a lot of knowledge and reasons to pick on this drama. Not that I intentionally want to criticize on this drama just that it’s easy for me to spot if they really are good in basketball. They might not be as good as professional basketball players but they definitely work hard on their shooting skills. Well, at least the drama is able to capture some good action.
As for the violin part, honestly I’m not sure. I just love the music that often practice by Shirakawa Riko (Kitagawa Keiko) 北川景子. Not sure if she really play that music.
As for the romance part, it’s sweet but nothing exciting. I’m actually attracted by Nanami Natsuki (Aibu Saki) 相武紗季. Her acting of being a bad girl friend image really stands out. I think we will see more of her drama later.
Overall I think there are too many stuff in the drama, for example French toast, basketball, violin, advertisement board and the sun flower. It just doesn’t have a good icon that really stands out special.

Things that caught my eyes:
The large advertisement board at the basketball park reminds me some of the old dramas. This method is used within a famous romantic drama, if not mistaken. There was a quote too back then. As for this drama it’s “Love makes me strong”

Japan Drama Rating:
Nice to watch. Overall the drama is good but lack of excitement. The basketball, violin and romances are there but just don’t quite hit the peek.
