Akai Ito

These are just some extras for those who have watched up to Episode 3. I'll put them under full post to avoid spoilers, just in case.

Episode 3
The group that Taka-chan, Mitsu and Natsu were talking about in gym class and whose song they played during the culture festival is 筋肉少女帯 Kinniku Shoujo Tai or Muscle Girl Squad. The title of the song is 日本を印度にしてしまえ!Nihon wo Indo ni shite shimae! Let's turn Japan into India! You can see the lyrics here and guess why Taka-chan decided to play this song. Although how this fits in into a message song for Mei-chan, I don't know (;^_^

This is the original band playing the song.

Episode 1 & 2
The burger place Yuya called Mei to in Episode 1 and where the whole gang ran to after Mei's heartbreak in Episode 2, Fire House, is a real restaurant.

They sell western food, but browsing through their menu, I don't see parfait anywhere :| Hmm is a sundae a parfait ?

Drama-Movie Collaboration
I wasn't really sure how they wanted this to flow but after reading comments from 2ch & JWiki, this is how I figure it will work out. The first 2 episodes laid the foundation of Akai Ito. Then the movie aired. From then on, the drama from Episode 3 to Episode 8 actually covers the same timeframe as the movie. In other words, the movie is like a summary of the main events while the drama gives more details to them. So inevitably, some scenes from the movie will be rehashed in the drama. Then the last 3 episodes will pick up from where the movie ended and finish off the story.

That's what I think anyway. I wish they'd be clearer about this <(。_。)>

Thank you so much for subbing this drama!

Will you sub the movie too? I'm really curious to watch it...

About subbing the movie... probably not. We'll see if we can manage, but for now let's leave it as a 'no'. Don't wanna raise false hopes!

The scene where they ran out of school to the shop and also the rooftop is my fav till now ^^
