reactions to ep 3
yudai is so serious and sweet. I’m surprised he’s so young! I really love the range of ages here.
I wouldn’t connect with ayano. idk why. she just seems like she’s holding something back and I have a hard time figuring out what she actually wants.
Misaki’s kenya baseball coaching thing is so cool! It must be really hard to date when you’re splitting time between countries.
I love the mutual support that they’re all giving each other - treating it way more like matchmaking than a competition. the little debrief sessions are very sweet.
I love how Midori is so serious! she’s great. I wanna be her friend. A fuckin paper powerpoint slide. Wow.
ryotaro (the harajuku hairdresser?) is so cute. I think it’s so funny that in context he’s like “I look so scary!” and I’m like no. you look like a teddy bear. let me ruffle your silly hair.
wataru and pri speaking english as like a little secret language is really funny. I like Wataru better seeing him with Midori.
awww his breakup talk with pri. gosh this whole format is so weird and vulnerable! I don’t understand what’s going to happen later in the show - are there gonna be people who don’t pair up at all? I assume so…
also I don’t understand how the pods work exactly, what determines who gets paired? is it the showrunners? they’ve talked about requesting certain people.
omg nana and yudai are so awkward. “shouldn’t we follow, like, the system? no! stop! ah! what is happening!” oh goodness I hope they do okay once they meet!
oh poor Eri. no I just want to hug you.
okay I’m halfway through this ep and am going to come back to it later.
