I feel myself hungry for a new J-dorama and the dish I select is the manga adapted Heaven?:Gokuraku Resutoran (Heaven?: My Restaurant, My Life) thanks to the star casting of leads I love Ishihara Satomi and Fukushi Sota. She’s delightfully animated and he’s gorgeously deadpan, and in this story their character personalities even mirror their acting styles, lol. It’s about a kooky girl who rounds up a motley crew to open a French restaurant in a cemetery space and it goes about as well as you expect, but perhaps exactly as she expected. It’s based on the same name manga from the early 2000s and the first episode got over 10% ratings nationwide which isn’t bad. My summer could be a lot worse than enjoying good food and wine and staring at Satomi/Sota together onscreen.
