cd dramas, the good and the (maybe) bad [Dec. 15th, 2009|07:27 pm]

I saw a post for the CD dramas of Kyuusu wa cheese no yume wo miru and Sojou no koi wa nido haneru by Mizushiro Setona and recoiled in horror. Am I wrong to think it'll be overdone and ruin the wonderful tension the manga creates so well? :P

On the other hand, I am IN LOVE with the CD drama of Tightrope by Natsume Isaku. It has made me love the manga, I take back the bleah post I made on it a while back. I adored Ryu's pure, puppy-dog adoration of Naoki. He was born to be yakuza, but he's grown up so not messed up because Naoki has been there to keep him from becoming a total delinquent and a worthless piece of scum. The voice actors were PERFECT. Ryu is manly when mad but like a puppy around Naoki, I want to pet him and want him so much to have what he so earnestly wants. Naoki has this throaty voice that is perfect for his slightly distant personality. How I wish they had dramatized the side story in the manga because I would've loved to hear Ryu's little spiel on how Naoki had been so sweet when they'd had sex and how wonderful a sweet Naoki is since Naoki is usually so bitter...But then he thinks that a bitter Naoki is pretty awesome and so cool, but then wouldn't it be nice if a bit of sweetness was mixed in? Not like in an unnatural way, but...

And then his thoughts are interrupted by Naoki and he jumps back. Oh, how wonderful it'd be dramatized! XDXD

I think I hadn't appreciated Ryu's pure devotion and his sweet earnestness. I love how he can't even imagine ever doing anything to make Naoki cry, even if it means being tortured with lack of sex. So cute!

Not the only one--I think I literally made a D: face for a moment. Not to knock CD dramas as a whole or anything, but it seems like a story/medium mismatch. (For additional WTF-ness, a couple of days ago I saw someone describe Kyuusu wa cheese no yume wo miru as 'cute'.)

Cute? In what world would that manga be "cute?" *scratches head*

I wish someone I knew listened to the thing and told me if it's worth checking out. I don't want to rely on some random review since people have very different tastes...

*happy sigh* That's good~

That's exactly what Suzuki Tatsuhisa did to me when I first listened to Utsukushii Koto's drama cd ♥ (and later on to Itoshii Koto) Not to patronize him, but even though I don't listened to all of his drama cds, in the ones I did listen to he did a great job.
