Massugu Na Otoko DVD English Subtitle
[DVD]
$22.99
by Hideo Cota Date Added: Saturday 19 February, 2011
Massuguna Otoko (Straight-forward Man) is a difficult series to recommend. This ten episode program starts out as a comedy, but about a third of the way in, it becomes a love drama. Now, this would be fine except all but one of the main characters are jerks. The lead actor (Sato Ryuta) plays an opinionated, judgmental, and interfering salaryman. Heís constantly forcing his self-righteous will on others: VERY obnoxious. The other lead, played by Fukada Kyoko, is a liar and a thief; a narcissistic manipulator with no qualms about using her friends: VERY unpleasant. Naturally, these two personalities would clash bitterly; and since opposites DO attract, a romance between them COULD happen. Problem is, itís not convincing. Not one bit. Between the poor plot development and the poor choice in leading man (Sato is not capable of carrying a love drama) the story fails completely.
The English captioning was fair to mediocre. It was close enough that you could follow the simple story, but there were a LOT of missed or erroneously translated dialogue.
All in all, the bad writing and unsympathetic characters made me glad when the show was over. I wonít be watching it again.
