Finished this drama, yesterday c: Just incase I might forget (or forgot?) the storyline before I write the review. Sebenarnya, aku taknak tengok drama ni lol sebab I can smell the cliche-ness from this dorama and the title is too plain (came from someone who loves metaphore lol) for me. Something happened, I have this sudden eager-ness (you can say) to watch this drama. Well, not because Kento Yamazaki (who played as L in Death Note). I don't know, I'm weird. Don't judge. Lol.

 Let's talk about the drama now, shall we?

This is a good drama especially for those who enjoys contemporary-family-themed story. The settings were mainly situated in the sea and summer. Terfikir jugak, is it a summer love or what? But it's not. This story speak-out about dream, family relationship and love. 

It has few conflicts, to named a few, Kanata hates Misaki lol. Kanata is the only chef in Sea Sons Restaurants, he wouldn't let Misaki (a patissier) to get into his territories, the kitchen because he thinks Misaki works at the restaurant for the sake of getting Chiaki's love. 

The conflict around the brothers also quite interesting since I wasn't expecting it by the looks of how they are closed to each other.

Favourite Character(s)

It would be Kanata! (obviously) For me, he played his role as a blunt/cold man really well. He doesn't look that awkward and seriously - I sometimes feels the need of sepak his mouth because hes too heartless, too direct. As the story evolves, his consideration towards others could be seen and those reasons too.

I cannot argue more.

Favourite Scene


*tembus bumi*

We always have the desire to achieve big. We want to see the big result as fast as we could. Hence, we would take hugeeeeeeeee steps in order to achieve it sooner. But when we came across an obstacle, some might be able to get it through with few scars, probably, some might - retreat and surrender. 

Jadi Muslim, kita memang digalakkan untuk ada cita-cita yang besar. Bila berdoa, jangan minta syurga saja, berdoa supaya kita ditempatkan di Syurga Jannah - the highest one. Tapi jangan lupa, untuk capai setiap impian yang besar itu kita mulakan dengan yang kecil-kecil ni. It wasn't about getting your desired dream right at that point. Mungkin Allah dah tetapkan yang waktu ini, kita hanya sesuai dapat rezeki sebanyak ini c: Allah Maha Mengetahui. Yang penting, keep working on it, don't you think so?

Special Notes

For your information, Sayaka Kawamura is the one who wrotes the script for Strobe Edge too.
