DO NOT UPLOAD MY PICSPAMS TO TUMBLR. They are already posted there on my personal Tumblr.

(DO NOT UPLOAD THIS TO TUMBLR. If you like this picspam, you can reblog it here.)

You can only view the picspam here if you're a registered LJ user.

You can download Episode 01 at [ profile] ourhour here or at [ profile] estherzax's LJ here (1280x720, .avi).

As you can probably tell by the header, my picspams/reviews of Inu o Kau to Iu Koto will all be in relation to Junno and his character Hotta Katsuhiko. 'Junno Vision', so to speak. ;P I may or may not comment on other aspects of the drama (Sky Tree, the Hongo family, etc), depending on how lazy I'm feeling, lol. I'm watching it RAW, and I apologize for anything I may not be understanding right. OTL ---> This is why you won't see any episode summaries from me. Also, the style of my picspams may change as the series progresses since I'm experimenting w/ it.

Episode 01 ~ 貧乏家族、小さな命を拾う!?
Air Date: 04/15/2011 (TV Asahi)
Official Website
DramaWiki here, Japanese Wiki here

Junno plays the part of Hotta Katsuhiko, 29-year old medical doctor working in a public practice. He is a former classmate of Hongo Sachiko. He liked her during high school and even after graduation, but never confessed.

Junno Parts* -
*I've listed time stamps, so you can find where each part starts if you dl the entire episode. Please refer to the above picspam for stuff mentioned below.

Class Reunion Invitation (Name Only) ~ 22:11
We get our first mention of 'Hotta Katsuhiko' when Sachiko receives a class reunion invitation. Katsuhiko is the coordinator.

Supermarket/Register Scene ~ 34:10
Katsuhiko and Sachiko meet for the first time in a long while at Sachiko's place of work, the supermarket. The red/white strawberries Hotta buys is 7500 yen! :O This is so we know that Katsuhiko is loaded well-off. xD His financial situation greatly differs from the Hongo family, who have to save up, etc. Also, I take it the gold credit card has to mean something...? lolol Katsuhiko's kind of adorable when he recalls Sachiko's married last name - "Ima wa... Hon... go?" He asks her if she's coming to the reunion and she apologizes because she can't go. The next person in line interrupts their small talk/catching up. ;P So Katsuhiko takes his leave as he picks up his strawberries with a smile and a "Ja!"

Hospital Scene ~ 44:05
We see Katushiko in his place of work, and in the doctor's white coat. Here, he wears glasses and is much more serious (but also gentle and calm) as he attends to a patient and then talks to the husband of another patient. (The husband happens to be a friend of Ryo's character Yuji from work.)

- Needs MOAR Junno. ;P (I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Not really. I know it's a supporting role... -goes in corner and sulks-) But hey~ It's better than Kame's Kinpachi cameo! -bricked- Anyway, so far so good for Junno. His acting didn't seem awkward at all, which - yay!
- The drama is very... boring slow. However, I am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt as most first episodes - especially in family dramas - tend to be a lot of set-up. The Hongo family didn't even get the dog until the very end. I will of course be sticking with the series for Junno.
- Dr. Hotta = ♥! And I love the drama for getting Junno to cut his hair for the role. ;P
- Will there or won't there be something sparking between Katsuhiko and Sachiko~? Were the strawberries (they're considered an aphrodisiac, y'know~) a red herring or foreshadowing? lmao -bricked again-
- Ryo as a dad is both super adorable and a little surreal.
- The kids are cute and I predict an episode w/ Dai (the son) getting in some kind of trouble... He seems to be the troublemaker.
- I found the part where Sachiko scolds Yuji and Mako (the daughter) funny, even though I also felt sorry for them (Also - father/daughter bonding time = ♥). Same goes for when Yuji was punching himself. OTL
- Umm, did the mom call her daughter a 'baka'? Eh... Granted, Sachiko was upset, but still. :/
- The dog is also cute, even though pomeranians aren't my favorite breed. Sky Tree as a name... lol. (Ack, I had the same reactions as the "mean girls". xD;;)

Episode 02 Preview ~
Hotta gif here. Hotta tends to get just one shot in the previews (so far). Looks like he's by a riverbank? :3 Probably talking to Sachiko. Sachiko collapses at work and, going by magazine previews, is taken to the hospital where Katsuhiko becomes her doctor.

i didn't really watch the first ep properly since i hardly understand what they were saying but with their body language i could understand how the story goes... hohoho

& yes... the first ep is kinda slow... makes me sleepy but since i'm waiting for junno appearance... that keeps me awake for that 1 hour. ^.^

I know it's a supporting role... -goes in corner and sulks-
sulking with you too.

ahh i hope 2nd ep will show more junno!

btw, love ur picspam!

Hopefully, Junno's role grows as the series progresses. :3

Wow, I was expecting Dr Junno to be Miura Seiji the doctor but he turned out to be ... SO EFFING CHARMING. *_____*

Dr. Junno is fabulous. Sachiko should run away with him. ;P I find it hard to believe he's single. (Unless he isn't?! :O )

thanks for sharing. It's awesome that I know what to look out for. :) Junno in those glasses is really, really HOT. Also, I agree on the haircut. It looks great on him.

Junno in those glasses + that haircut = WIN. ;D And I'm happy to share~ Hopefully, this serves as a guide for those interested mostly in the Junno parts (like me, lol). I'm planning to do it every week, barring any complications. :Db

Short hair suits Junno best. His best hairstyle, imo, is his White X'mas PV hair. :) And Dr. Junno is ♥. Hopefully, as the series progresses, we see more of him, as well as as another side to his acting.

Thanks for commenting~

This is a great preview of the ep! Thank you - I do plan to watch it eventually, but for now, this is just what I wanted to know. :-)

Junno looks very nice... hope his role grows in later eps!

No problem! I hope this serves as a 'guide' for Junno/KT fans who are mostly interested in his parts. (-winces- Sorry, Ryo! I'm... kinda... watching for you too? -runs-) I'll be doing it every week, barring any complications.

I'm hoping for the same. -crosses fingers- Lots of potential...

And yay for sexy!glasses. I need KT to star in drama as megane characters WAY MORE OFTEN.

The red/white strawberries Hotta buys is 7500 yen! :O
WTF O__O (well, i think he's an interesting bachelor then... hoping for the triangle)

- The drama is very... boring slow.

- Ryo as a dad is both super adorable and a little surreal.
THIS!! XD He is nice and cute indeed, but... I can't properly imagine this super DO-S as a dad, really XD

- Umm, did the mom call her daughter a 'baka'? Eh... Granted, Sachiko was upset, but still. :/
I haven't watched the episode yet, so IDK the scene, but... is this such a big matter? If it's said with a positive feeling I don't think it's bad. I mean, I prefer strict parents than stupid parents (baka oya? XD) that spoil their sons, to be honest.

I actually would've been okay with Dr. Junno more arrogant and roguish, LOL. But I also like how he's serious here, while being calm and gentle, and he can smile w/ it being more charming instead of just goofy.

Well, we know Hotta's spending habits are luxurious, haha. xD

:( Yeah... I'm really hoping it picks up.

The family's cute, but I still don't really get a family impression... if that makes any sense. Like, I'm not really sensing the connections yet. The parents don't really feel like husband and wife...

But it isn't said w/ positive feelings, lol. Of course, it all depends on the situation. Like saying "ba~ka~" in an affectionate way is perfectly okay. I think it's cute. But here, the mom is angry and she partially says it because she's frustrated... it's kind of careless. -shrugs- It's not that big a deal - I'm sure people all feel differently on this issue.

I can't actually see Junno himself being arrogant. maybe moody (being him an AB XD), but arrogant... I can't even imagine him playing an arrogant character XD even Bidou was cute in his own way XD /bricked

Well, we know Hotta's spending habits are luxurious, haha. xD
This is such a Kameno-ish hidden hint, y'know? XD

Then I hold on my answer about the "baka" issue after I've watched the episode :P

From: [identity profile]
I want Junno to play an arrogant character (again) precisely because no one can ever see him doing it. If he ever wants to get other roles, he needs to get stuff beyond 'smiley' characters. (I say 'again' because his character in Ganbatte Ikkimasshoi was arrogant and teased Ryo a lot, lol.)

This is such a Kameno-ish hidden hint, y'know? XD
I didn't even think of that, LOLOL. Oh, Isi... (cozy) ---> using emoticon codes that don't work here. lol

:P (flower) /random

Uh, this is more or less what I always say about kame and his OMGFUCKINGCOOL characters, that may be interesting and cute and maybe even cool (indeed), but I want to see his acting skills tested by a very devilish character. I suppose that, as much as Kame has the "cool doom" on him, Junno has the "smiley doom", and those are the almost only roles they are proposed T_T

It's your fault if I see KameNo everywhere now! è_é *points to you* XD *hugssss*

"and a "Ja!"" YES.. That was really great. He was so lovable. but the whole episode was rather boring... There I love Junno, the daughter and the dog. they are cute^^
but I'll also continue to watch it as I can't miss Dr HOTta)))

Sorry about the late reply, but I just want to say thank you for commenting! :D

This whole drama series is boring if you're not into family dramas and/or your bias isn't Ryo. OTL lol

I do like the Hotta role, but I hope Junno's next drama (-crosses fingers and hopes-) will have a more prominent role for him. :3
