My Fair Prince is the latest Japanese drama I completed on Rakuten Viki. Apart from Dean Fujioka (one of the best Japanese actors around), My Fair Prince actually had a main cast of actors/actresses that I haven’t seen before in other shows.
My Fair Prince does have a romantic storyline, but it also had other aspects besides the main relationship. The main character in particular (played by Keisuke Watanabe) really develops throughout the show, as he goes from a guy getting beat up on the streets (because of a debt he could not pay) to an incredibly sharp design/business mind.
My Fair Prince is about a video game company (for a particular genre called Otome games) and the small team that comprises it. What started initially as a 2 person operation grew into a team of about 7, and the story goes into depth about the growth of the company (both from a personnel and game development).
In my opinion, the ending of My Fair Prince was too predictable and I wish that they would’ve changed it up. However, this is typical of most Japanese dramas, as they tend to keep pretty standard endings. Aside from the ending though, I really did enjoy watching the cast and story of my Fair Prince!
My Fair Prince Recommendation Rating: 3.5
This post has now been updated to reflect a new ratings system that I have implemented, which is scored as follows:
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
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!
