Cinderella is Online (シンデレラはオンライン中) is the joint production between Fuji TV’s FOD and Youku with a total of 10 episodes. It’s the Japanese remake of popular Cdrama Love O2O which starred Yang Yang and Zheng Shuang back in 2016. The adaptation stars Nakamura Riho and Seto Toshiki and the story seems pretty similar with our female lead not interested in real-life romance but is all about playing the online game Tenkyo, where her character is dating the top player. They meet in real life and he turns out to be the Campus prince, even owning his own gaming company. They get close and start dating, but our heroine also begins to get attack from people who are jealous of her.
Can see why they’re so happy. Each has 3 dramas on the list. Chusen with them together tops the list. Lol. Ratings is such a weird concept. We might find a drama so frustrating and rage-inducing, and yet we still tune in, contributing to the enormous view count. WHYYYYYYY?
Can you believe our last movie date was in 2014?! This poor feature being forgotten and shoved in the last bunk of this ship. Let’s bring it back for our Saturday’s movie night! Feel free to drop movie suggestions through here or our twitter and if we can find quality sources, we’ll share it here. If you would like to review any movies, also let us know! It’s a one-time commitment to share your opinion!
The Vietnamese adaptation of Gu Man’s novel, Just One Smile is Very Alluring, is called Love At 1st Sight. I think it’s always nice to see what different directors choose to do with their budget and actors to bring the characters and story to life. The teasers look really cute but don’t provide anything about the gaming world so I hope they are saving the best for last!
Xiao Nai really doesn’t fool around when it comes to work and dating. He is actually really sly here, courting Wei Wei in-game and then delivering the final kill in real life. Da Shen is Da Shen indeed.
This first episode is a delight to watch and to recap. I think the show nailed the execution and improved the plot. The characters feel alive instead of caricatures of themselves, which the show owed it to the original writer Gu Man also being the scriptwriter. If you like the book, I think you will enjoy this adaptation.
