Synopsis
Due to his lack of drive, Shiro has failed the university entrance exams three times and just can’t seem to do anything right. When Shiro starts to contemplate why somebody like him is living at all, a mysterious man named Tendo appears, calling himself an “angel.” Tendo warns Shiro that his death is just around the corner if he does not push himself harder. Shiro takes the initiative and ends up saving someone else from an untimely death. In this way, Shiro avoids one brush with death after another by listening to Tendo’s frustrating riddles and gradually learns the value of life. With a lot of laughter and a few tears, Shiro’s trial teaches the importance of being confident and hard work.

Brianna had tried to figure out if Taylor was simply trying to amuse them or if he was serious with his questions. After a little while though, she had realized that he was, indeed, completely clueless about the whole story of a princess, and how she had fallen in love with a poor boy from a village and was forbidden to see him again.

Cheo Yong

I’ve finished watching the ghost hunting drama Cheo Yong. I think the drama was so-so. Watch it if you have time.

I was watching episode 6 in the middle of the night. The opening scared me half to death :)

Announcement
On November 19th 2014 D-Addicts closed down its torrent section.

Only the torrent section is closing. Discussions, subtitles, DramaWiki, etc will remain according to Ruroshin’s post.

From now on some will post over at Nyaa. Look under “Browse” and “Live Action.”

At first, when I saw the I announcement I thought, “Maybe it’s an old thread.” I had to double check the date. Sadly it wasn’t. I wish it was April 1st.

And I happened to be the last one. :(

The message at the end of last episode.

Spoiler:

ZeldAx and occultangle suggested the following meanings.
“And I’m sure you won’t eat a red apple on the eve of the new century.”

I notice that they use the English word “Eve”, which yes, could be eve such as “New Year’s Eve”, but it could also be the name Eve. Which might make more sense considering the apple, as in the biblical story, where the forbidden fruit is often depicted as an apple. The word they use for century, “seiki” is often used in a figurative way to refer to an “age” or “era.” So this sentence might mean something like, “I bet Eve of the new age won’t eat the forbidden fruit.”
