Caution, Hazardous Housewife is the latest Japanese TV show that I finished on Rakuten Viki. The show is about a former spy who is trying to transition to life as a housewife. After faking her death, the main character, Nami Isayama, has been able to settle down and live in a comfortable neighborhood with her new husband. However, she quickly realizes that her life is kind of boring now, and she wants to find some way to get back the feeling of her action filled past.
Watching the show was funny because the main actor, Hidetoshi Nishijima, was the main character in the show I had just watched previously, 99 Days with the Superstar. In this show though, he played a completely different type of character, so it was hard to separate him from his old role. The Japanese TV world is interesting because it is pretty small, so once you have watched a bunch of TV series, you start to see the same actors/actresses in a bunch of different roles. In fact, the 4 main actors/actresses in this show were all previous leads in other shows I have watched.
Hazardous Housewife may sound like a weird premise, but I have learned to just trust the Rakuten Viki ratings, as they are pretty accurate. Hazardous Housewife got a 9.3/10, and anything over 9/10 normally means it is a show worth watching. The show ends on a bit of a mysterious note, but I later found out that they are going to be making a movie soon (which will be a continuation of where the show left off). It is supposed to come out soon, and once it does, I will for sure be watching it!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
