Yes, I mentioned earlier that I finished ISWAK after a very long marathon. All had to do was get to the second to last episode, and that made me quite happy. I actually prefer episode 29 to episode 30, the finale. That wedding was just too… too… WHY WOULD XIANG QIN MAKE ZHI SHU DRESS UP AS A GIRL?? Its like shes trying to make him hate her and RIGHT after he decided he liked her too. *sigh* Whatever shall we do with you, Xiang Qin?
Sorry if that was a spoiler… this is supposed to be a complete review (basically its just me blabbering whatever comes to my head that has remotely anything to do with ISWAK).
OH! Just now I found a set of Nobuta wo Produce episodes 1-10 plus the special torrent file! yayy. Wow that doesnt even have ANYTHING to do with ISWAK.
Alright: Main Summary and Opinion:
Ehhhh I dont feel like summarizing. *googles* *copies* *pastes*
After an earthquake destroyed Xiang Qin’s house, she and her father moved in with the family of her father’s college buddy, Uncle Ah Li. To her surprise, the kind and amicable aunt and uncle are the parents of her cold and distant schoolmate Jiang Zhi Shu, a genius with an IQ of 200 whom not too long ago rejected her endless crush on him. Will the close proximity give her a second chance to win Zhi Shu’s heart? Or, will her love for him end under his cold words? What happens when there is competition for his heart?
I LOVEEEEEEEE the chemistry between Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin.
Well… When I watched the bloopers I realized Joe Cheng is kinda creepy. Have you heard him laugh? I think I got shivers. But then when he plays Zhi Shu he’s super cool. Amazing. Whats also amazing is that usually when the female lead is idiotic and does stupid things, you just really dont like her, but somehow Xiang Qin gets away with it.
After watching the first episode, which I didn’t really like, I just knew it would get so much better. Anyways, if I went back and watched the first episode now I probably wouldn’t dislike it as much.
I learned some Mandarin!
Ai = Love
Wo = I
Ta = He/She
Ni = You
add -men to the end and you get plural. (ex Tamen = they)
Amazing how educational these shows are. 😄
Back to the point: I can’t decide if I like Jiro or not. I’ve only seen him in Hana Kimi and ISWAK, and he played a similar character (energetic rejected wannabe lover) in both. And also, in both, he was just kind of a nuisance. So I guess I don’t really dislike Jiro himself, I just haven’t liked his characters.
Awwww so cute
In conclusion… I really liked this. I could be wayyy more criticizing and find all the bad points but I dont wanna. It was fun to watch because it’s not really trying to be anything other than a romance. A good romance. 😄
My first episode of They Kiss Again (ISWAK 2) just finished DL-ing. I reallllly have to watch it. I’m scared for the new rivals and misunderstandings. Sometimes when they misunderstand each other its so hard to watch. “NOOO I cant watch!” is what I yell. But.. how could I not watch it? Yayyyy 30 more episodes of wonderful~!
