Jdrama: Osozaki no Himawari Episodes


English Title: Late Blooming Sunflower (Literal)
Japanese Title: 遅咲きのヒマワリ
Cast: Ikuta Toma, Maki Youko, Kiritani Kenta
# of Episodes: 11
Airing Days: Tuesday
Broadcasting Station: Fuji TV
Synopsis: The drama is set at the beautiful Shimanto River in the Kochi prefecture and revolves around a group of seven men and women and the unfolding of their lives.

Ikuta plays a man named ‘Joutarou’, who’s a typical example of the so-called ‘lost generation’ in Japan. The term ‘lost generation’ refers to people who face a scarcity of employment right after graduating from school and therefore are left without any real perspective. He was lucky to find a regular employment, but it didn’t last long and he was laid off due to downsizing. Around the same time he was also dumped by his girlfriend. Fed up with his life, he somehow ends up in a ‘revitalization group’ of the Shimanto River area in Kochi. [Credit: Wiki]

Kap: Let’s begin the fall season of Jdramas! I’ll be camping on this side of the world. *waves*

I think I’ve said enough about Toma in my Hana Kimi 07 post, so I won’t repeat myself here. Yes, I’m late in knowing about him, but better late than never!

About Kiritani Kenta. Not gonna lie but he’s the first Japanese actor that got me saying he’s broodily hot. I first laid my eyes on him in W No Higeki, thanks to the peeps on tumblr. Now, I don’t use tumblr (or know how…) but have recently developed this weird habit of scrolling through the tags of interested subjects, for HOURS, thanks the lord. W No Higeki was being raved by some peeps for having sizzling chemistry and I checked it out. Dangit, the moment I saw gruffy Kenta strutting around in his white shirt and black pants in the police station, I was a goner. Mr. Hottie can generate heat with a wall if he wanted to. As for the drama, not a must watch, but Kenta is perfect in ever frame. What I love most is his offscreen personality. Such a goofball.

So Toma + Kenta = I’m there. Please don’t suck!

    Oh, Kiritani Kenta is one of the best Japanese actors. He´s just great in everything, he´s got that super strong presence so every time he appears on screen you´re trapped. But have you seen him in Rookies? He played such a weird and totally dump guy. He was far from hot :-)), but he´s a great comedian as well. I totally loved him in BECK too. He played the lead singer, very charismatic and wild guy.

      YEAAAAAA! A spazzzzzer! =DD

      No Dita. I’ve only watched him in W No Higeki and Ryusei no Kizuna. Both roles are vastly different so I’m eager to watch everything he’s in! But he’s rarely the leading man, which means less screen time. WHAT? HOW? WHY? Someone needs to cast him as a lead NAOOOO!

      Rookies? Dumb, weird guy? DING! DING! DING! Right up my alley, girlfriend. Adding that to my list. Thanks!

      I downloaded Beck a while back because the amount of eye candies in one movie is irresistible. Gotta watch it soon. He’s also in another movie with DBSG’s Changmin. That makes my day! 😀

    hahahha alice has a new love. i don’t find japanese actors very appealing… dunno why. not one has yet to get me calling him hot. i’ll google your new man and see how “hot” he is. xD

    looking forward to Toma!! so happy i found out about him recently, *coughlikesomebody* so he hasn’t been doing dramas for the last 3 years? sucks to be his fans. movies not my thing so maybe finding out later is better. 😉

    Omo i luv Kiritani Kenta too – that man is hot! Run to any drama he’s in! LOL! I’ve only seen him in two dramas but since Kap’n says pass on this one i’ll check out Beck – which is yet another one that i really wanted to watch but again shoved in a corner and forgot about it. I was also surprised at the (young) star power in it

      Frea, oh gee Miss Picky, Kenta is really smoking hotness krap cake (my recreational word)!! Even Annette agrees with me! I pray that this drama don’t turn out mediocre! Puleasssse!

      Annette, I’m so glad we’re on the same boat regarding Kenta. More spazzing buddies for me. xD

      The pure reason why I downloaded Beck was because of the eye candies. Breathless (oh so young too but not too young for moi)! And Kenta sings too. I’ll be ALL over that you see.

      He has reduced me to a little girl, peering closely at this fine, fine specimen.

      Annette, can you guess who’s in the above gif? hahaha =DDD

        • 12 thoughts on “Jdrama: Osozaki no Himawari Episodes

          It’s not a drama, but a commercial (CM) he was in. (: That CM was just pure crack, him behaving all silly. ;D

          Thanks XY!! I was gonna tweet you for help. XD

          Wonder what the cameraman did to get him in this whole assemble. I thank him, sincerely! 😛

    Kiritani kenta is the most gifted Japanese actor of his generation: have a look a shufu tantei, last year’s fall drama, where he plays a detective and Jin, where’s he’s one of the Western doctors. He’s just good at everything he does!
