• Title: おひとりさま / Ohitorisama
  • Genre: Romance, comedy
  • Episodes: 10
  • Synopsis:33-year-old Akiyama Satomi is a history teacher at the prestigious all-girls high school she once attended. She has earned the nickname “ohitorisama” (meaning “one person”) for her perfectionism and capability to handle any work by herself. At the same time, the name also refers to her lack of romance. One day, a young man named Shinichi arrives at the school as a temporary instructor. He’s ten years younger than Satomi, has only worked part-time jobs, and has neither money nor status. Although the other female teachers and students find him cute, he is completely not Satomi’s type… or is he? Will love blossom between this unlikely pair?” Tokyograph

Overall, plotwise, I think this Jdrama was pretty average.  However, upon watching the first episode, I fell in love with this drama (and for the most random reasons too).

Reason 1: The main character has this random adorable bunny plushie that’s always in the living room.  I forget the name of this bunny, but it must be popular because I saw my friend owning similar merchandise (slippers) of this bunny.

Reason 2: Surprise, surprise!  Big Bang’s “Let me hear your voice” is the theme song.  If you know me, then you know that I am in love with Big Bang.  I completely forgot that their song was going to be the theme song for this drama until I watched the first episode and started fangirling.

Reason 3: Mizuki Alisa‘s face was just so refreshingly different to look at.  Not to mention, her character was pretty amusing: the typical “I like to be alone” type.  It sort of reminded me of the Kdrama He Who Can’t Get Married.

The ending was pretty satisfying.  The writers tied up all loose ends to make an almost complete and perfect ending.  I say ‘almost’ because the writers intentionally left one matter out, which irks me, but it wasn’t an all too important thing to worry about with the happy ending and all.  Perhaps they left some space for a season 2? Who knows, I wouldn’t be surprised.

My Rating: (3.5/5)
