Seigi no Mikata

Ilove Japanese dramas. In addition to being funny and (sometimes) manga-like, it has a limit on the number of episodes as well, usually 9-12. No 50+ episodes for Japanese drama. You can safely bet that you get to see the ending of a story.

Anyway, I am in the middle of watching Seigi no Mikata: a story of an "evil" older sister and a "bullied" younger sister (of course this is told from the younger sister's point of view). "Seigi no Mikata" literally translates to "Ally of Justice". This term referes to, surprisingly, the older sister in this movie. Apparently, by doing something completely selfish (and sometimes downright evil), the older sister actually manages to make other people's lives better. Ha!

It's quite a funny story. Of course, as with any other Japanese dramas, we watch this one because:
1. the story is interesting enough
2. the actresses are pretty (we are following Shida Mirai from Sapuri, Tantei Gakuen Q, and now this one)
3. the actors are handsome/cute (though he's a bit young, we adore Hongo Kanata)

Actually, seeing this movie makes me a bit nostalgic, simply because Hongo Kanata resembles one of my friends from my birth city. And Kanata is a model! I guess that means that my friend could have been a model as well?
