“Without saying a word, it’s so obvious what she is wishing for.”
No, not really. Is it hot make-outs with Naoki?
Since last week’s episode, we went from wonderful Tokyo summer to Naoki-sporting-a-hideous-coat winter. But at least Kotoko is adorable as ever.
Very important scene in which absolutely nothing happens except that we get to ogle cute Japanese girls in kimonos (will be doing more of that myself with Sakura Matsuri!)
Well, to be honest, there are only two types of scenes in Itazura Na Kiss~Love in Tokyo, delicious interactions between Naoki and Kotoko and Aihara-Irie family consuming all sorts of delicious food.
Kotoko makes a very lucky charm for Naoki’s national exams or whatnot, and he muses over her excitement of going to college since she doesn’t even know what she wants to do.
But she tells him that’s why you go to college! To find out.
“You are amazing…You put your whole self into things, yet you still can’t do it” – um, we will just take that as a compliment?
These lavish breakfasts are literally driving me insane. Especially toast! PLEASE, PUT AWAY THE TOAST. *is in a slimming down mode and craving toast. and scones. MMM, BLUEBERRY JAM*
Kotoko’s lucky charm almost gets Naoki killed, but that’s alright because he is a genius and he can deal.
This production has some of the shabbiest camerawork I’ve seen though (and I’ve watched tv shows from 90s Russia). Faces are noticeably out of focus about 80% of the time and my attention keeps wondering to random places in hopes of finding a focused object.
Wee, I was afraid they might forgo the grandeur of my favorite scene from ISWAK with Zhi Shu rushing Xiang Qin to the hospital despite his exam but it was still awesome here.
Is it me or is she slipping from his hands? Naoki, you are one person who can use more toast.
And then brings her back when she decides she’s been too much trouble for him.
“It’s alright…I like trouble”, he tells her.
“Then I will make your life very exciting,” she assures him.
Naoki: “Also, btw, I’m going to the same college as you”
Kotoko: “FOR ME?”
Naoki: “No way, why would I do that? *coughcough* I just want to find out what to do. You know, in the same college where you will be finding out what to do…It’s that type of college, isn’t it?”
Haha, he was totally expecting chocolate on Valentine’s from her.
He loves it, I can see it in his face.
Overall, this was a slower episode of the series thus far but I still enjoyed and I’m so ridiculously excited for the next one because doesn’t seem like there will be too much toast and there is jealous!Naoki. Nothing beats jealous!Naoki. Have a preview!
