Kimi Wa Petto is about a 29 year old successful journalist who finds a young man in a box in front of her home and takes him in as her new pet.
This jdrama of 10 episodes was based on a manga of the same name. It was completed in 2003. (Yes, dinosaur phones again!) Once again, I haven’t read the manga. I looked it up, but… Well… You can go and see for yourself…
Okay, let’s dive right in with the plot. I must admit, I was pretty surprised. This drama managed to keep my frustration level relatively low. Maybe it was because the main character had so much wits to her. But I didn’t like that she was a 29 years old smoker. Seriously, why 29-30? Why? And don’t smoke, guys, that’s how you get cancer and die young. Ask my grandma about it. Oh, wait, she’s dead because her lungs were black and full of gukk. Help yourself for heavens sake! (shameless anti-smoking rent ahaha!) Also, I would have liked our heroine to be a lot more aggressive but hey, it was fine.
Momo-chan was really nice. He really felt like a dog sometimes. Also, I like how they explored a relationship with the girl being 8 years older than the guy! Wow!
Now, Let’s talk about Fukushima and Hasumi. Those two,
holy moose meatballs dipped in sriracha! they were sooooo argh! Fukushima-san was just the bad girl but she was so sneaky about it… wow… And don’t trust Hasumi. He looks so nice and all but he’s a total douche!
Also, I don’t know what happened to the writer on episode 6 but boy was that a little too hardcode? I don’t know about Sumire, but I felt kinda rapped. Just saying.
On to the actors! I must say, to whoever made the casting choice. Good job. I approve. The main actress really looked right in place. And damn, Mattsumoto Jun as Momo was great. (He played in Hana yori Dango btw.) Now, my problem lays in the guy who played Hasumi. Really, I felt that this actor was a bit out of place. I can’t quite pinpoint why.
I give Kimi Wa Petto: 4/5 fantas.
I was impressed that it was that good. I usually have an hard time finishing those dramas but not this one. It was just the right length and, also, Jun was cute.
That’s it for this week folks! I’ll see you next Thursday for another one!
