Enough of summer season initial impressions for now! Amidst all the new anime, I stumbled across a 2011 spring J-drama titled Asuko March! This live action is a bit of a cross between the J-dramas Hanazakari no Kimitachi e and Gokusen, and certainly stands its ground as one of my more recently enjoyed school dramas. Though I’ve been wading through a pool of angsty K-drama romances, I went back to my Japanese live action foundation to try a newer series. My stint away from that particular circle was immediately evident, as the only actors I recognized were the two adult teachers. Upon looking up the acting backgrounds of the student characters, I also saw that they were all younger than me by at least a few years. Despite having finished high school many years ago, I still enjoy school dramas, albeit from what I like to consider a wiser standpoint.
