Honestly, I don’t watch live-action dramas. I just thought I should pick a random BL for this day but then Arashi no Ato came to my mind. I would like to see this adapted only and only if there is a proper actor to interpret Sakaki.
Okada just needs to be attractive, Sakaki needs the whole attitude. He is sexy, diligent, smart, successful and has an obsession with personal care&appearances. To top it all he has a difficult personality; he is blunt and pretty harsh sometimes, he doesn’t like to be attached, and he still manages to come out as such a sexy gay man (is it just me thinking this way?). Okada is also sexy, in a different way, but Arashi no Ato seems to be more focused in Sakaki, so it’s great that we have the opportunity to know him better in the sequel, Double Line. Why a drama about this manga?…Because I love it! hahah. No, seriously, this is a pretty simple story, not over-dramatic and without most of the BL cliches that we find around (I don’t remember if there at least one right now). A gay, and very practical, man falls in love, against his strongest principle, with a straight one. Then we see him struggling to get out of the mess before it’s too late…he is angry about it, very angry, but things don’t go the way he wants them to. Somehow the story seemed pretty realistic to me, most of the time at least; it wouldn’t be that hard to make it a live-action and it’s not explicit either. I just want to see a real life Sakaki…! yeah!. Besides, suits always add sexiness, and don’t forget about Sakaki’s cool glasses please do more meganes sensei.
