Viki vs. DramaFever; Which one should you pick?

Viki.com or DramaFever? Two streaming services that are sure to quench you thirst of Dramas but which one should you really choose? Is there one that is better than the other? What are the pros and cons? Well let me tell you!

Actually, I pay for both services. They cost approximately the same, if you’re not the kind that download their stuff to watch offline and wants to get a Roku that is. But there’s a long time battle between those two and, while I don’t mind paying for both and getting exclusives from both sides, I feel both have their very own pros and cons.

Viki and DramaFever are both legal. DF is ran by a branch of Warner Bros while Viki is a company by itself now ran by Rakuten.

Sukitte Ii Na Yo (Live action) (Quick Review)

poster2

Sukitte Ii Na Yo is the story of a popular guy who falls in love with a quiet girl because she roundhouse kicked him in the jaw (And also, he sees her panties).

This title has an anime and a manga to its name. I finished the anime but not the manga. I grew bored of it after a while.

One thing I really want to stress here is that this is no shoujo. No, this is josei. This is aimed at an older audience. I remember there was a lot of sex talk in the manga. On that the anime and the live action both share something: They are a LOT more tame and pure.

Kimi ni Todoke (Live action) Quick Review

417b4b3dc355081ca54722937842874b

Kimi ni Todoke is the story of a young awkward girl that kinda look like the girl from The Ring who falls in love and also makes friends at school.

I have watched the whole anime. I’ve read the manga for a long time although I don’t anymore. I must say, the live action was a very quick resume of the anime I guess. It felt a little rushed of course. But how could you blame it on someone trying to fit this story inside a little 2 hours pictures.

Flower Boy Ramen Shop (KDrama) Quick Review

Flower Boy Ramen Shop is about an inspiring teacher who meets with a rich asshole guy and a poor ramen maker.

*sigh*… This was hard to finish. I started watching this because I thought it would be about food. You folks know how I like my food! I watched the first episode and hoped it would get better. Strangely enough, I binge watched the first episodes on my Xbox. Now, I won’t talk about how terrible the DramaFever’s subs were since you can also watch on Viki but boy, oh boy~

From Five to Nine (Jdrama) Quick Review

ausn

From Five to Nine, also known as 5-ji Kara 9-ji Made: Watashi ni Koi Shita Obōsan, is a jdrama based on the manga of the same name. It’s the story of a woman who teaches English. One day there is this weird monk who falls for her and she’s not into him at all.

Yeah, my summary sucks. It has been a while. From Five to Nine was strangely good. I say strangely because that monk is one weird mofo. He kinda abduct that poor girl at one point… Is this legal? I don’t think it’s legal… But it was sweet though, in a weird crooked way…!?

Coffee Prince (Not so) Quick Review

636017991590129630-1204417915_kdrama2 This review might contain slight spoilers, you and your sensitive ass have been warned.

Coffee Prince is a Kdrama about a tomboy girl who acts like a guy to get a job and a guy who falls for her while still thinking she’s a guy.

So, let’s say this won’t exactly be what I call a quick review. As per usual, Kdramas tend to be insanely long. Sometimes it makes them great and other times, it makes them hard to watch. You really need to commit to the story for 15, 17, 20 or even 30 hours of content. Yes, a full episode is normally a little over an hour. They are long and usually the progression of the plot is slow or there is a lot going on at the same time with more than 1 big story.
