It’s been a while since the last time I have watched a Japanese drama once again, so I decided to check some websites to watch free online. And I decided to click on LAST CINDERELLA. I have been seeing/reading a lot of reviews about it but I have never checked it out until just recently. And just like the others, I really, really loved it!
Well, the Last Cinderella is about a 39 year old lady, Toyama Sakura (played by Shinohara Ryoko), who for the past 10 years, hasn’t had any relationship and is so drawn and dedicated to her work. He met Hiroto Saeki (Harumu Miura!!!!), young and gorgeous BMX driver at a party when she was so drunk. They spent the night together at Hiroko’s room, or should I say, she woke up realizing she was in a stranger’s bedroom and was lying beside him. She could not even remember anything that night and that Hiroko was now asking her to date him, she was smitten by his charming look but was still concern about their age difference, so she refused him. But Hiroto was so persistent, and still keeps on seeing her. Turns out that it was just a set up-planned by one of their regular client, Ooami Chiyoko, who is so in-love with Sakura’s manager and friend-enemy, Tachibana, who also turned out to be also in-love with Sakura, but hasn’t realized it yet until the end. Chiyoko sees Sakura as threat that is why she sent Hiroto to make Sakura fall in-love with him. And that is what happened and that is where the conflict started.
Well, I don’t wanna fall into details as I don’t wanna give too much spoilers. But I highly recommend this drama if you are also into Japanese Romantic-Comedy drama, and May-December love affair, and into happy endings. And if you want something like a fairy tale story. And there is Haruma Miura who is uber gorgeous, what sort of excuse you still need to watch it?
