Great drama, but weird english subs in last 4 episodes
on November 16, 2010
I really love this drama. It's funny and sweet all at the same time. I think they did a great job of adapting the manga, too. It's not exactly the same, but has the same feeling and flavor. The actors who play Kyohei and Sunako-chan are especially good. The english subs are fabulous for the first 6 episodes or so--really fabulous, in fact. But then the last four episodes (from Sunako-chan's class reunion on) it's like a completely different person, who doesn't undertand English at all really, did the subtitles. The names for the characters used in the subtitles are the Chinese names, they get the genders wrong, and it just sounds bizarre. And makes the rest of the episodes kind of unwatchable--it's that bad. It's a bummer, because it's such a fun, fun drama. I would have given it 5 stars otherwise. I guess I'll have to learn more Japanese. If anyone knows of an edition that has great english subs all the way through, let us know!
