This series was something I’ve wanted to watch for a while thanks to Vienna and some other friends on Twitter. I didn’t have any expectations, as usual, and stayed away from reviews and such just so I can enjoy the series on my own. Writers that lived under Japanese rule in the 1930’s are reincarnated into a bestselling writer who is in a slump, a mysterious ghostwriter, and a fan of the bestselling writer. To be quite frank, I am not a fan of series with storylines about reincarnations or past lives. Blame it on my religion, I do always end up having a hard time coming to terms with it. With that said, I did have a hard time connecting with the plot of this series. (This is essential for me when I watch series or read books because I can then fully internalize the story.) I can’t understand why the past lives matter so much in the present when we all get one life to live. It’s the difference in culture and religion but …
I usually have a lot of things to say when I post stuff on my blog. This time around, I don’t think I have any other than Omakase is an amazing restaurant and their food is superb. I highly recommend the Dynamite Roll, Salmon Sashimi (super fresh), and Seafood Dumpling. Okay, enough chit-chat, let the pictures do the talking!
If I haven’t told you before, let me tell you that my favorite writer of all time is Neil Gaiman. I really like the way he tells his stories and how each and every detail is interconnected. One of my dreams is to read his Sandman comic book series but that dream is on hold until I go crazy because last time I checked one volume costs 6,000++ pesos at Fully Booked. Nope, sorry Neil.
This series was another recommendation by one of my blogger friends (sorry, totally forgot who). At first, I was a little hesitant to watch this because I know there will be a struggle of internalizing a serious storyline and reading subtitles at the same time. I persevered and I semi-liked it.
It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed food on my blog. I stopped because I upped up my diet and a part of the cause of me being overweight was my unending desire to have reviews on my blog. Talk about dedication, right?
