This will pick up from the previous storyline, 3 years after Mamoru Takagi, played by Sadao Abe (44), adopted the twins left behind by his best friend who passed away. This time, both Kaoru (Ashida) and Tomoki (Suzuki) are in 4th grade as the story will focus on their interactions with their actual mother, played by Mayu Tsuruta (44). The talking dog "Mook" (Miniature Schnauzer, male, 4) will be returning and once again play a vital role in the story.
Abe comments: "The story will be packed with events, including first crushes, dreams, and a wedding". Mana comments: "I'm so excited already about the prospect of playing this role again! Please look forward to it!". Fuku comments: "I shall do my utmost best to bring smiles to the faces of everyone watching.".
So Sadao's getting married?
Pro's gotten so big www
I hate Fuji so I'm not watching this.
Wow, Fuku Suzuki-san's comment is more mature than an adult's
This ‘lil dude prolly has pubic hair already, huh
Won't all of this feel weird now that their voices have changed?
For real?... And here I am who just bought the DVD... I hope they don't release the BD Box to commemorate this.
The important thing about this is Manami Higa
What about Ton-chan?
Fuji's in a tragic state so all they do are rehashes of their old franchises
Fuji's really dumb
Fuji also has GTO and HERO. They just can't let go of their past glory.
Just hearing that it's from Fuji turns me off
It'd be better if they stopped doing this kind of thing, but I'm pretty certain that they just don't want to produce any more flops with newer stuff.
But if they keep on flopping even with these past hits, it will just be like running through the fortunes of everyone who's worked so hard before and ruining the legacy that they built. So all the mistakes which have been brought forth by the people they have now should be paid back by these same people.
I won't watch just because it's Fuji
They should've at least made the 2nd season last year. This kind feels outdated already.
Marumo only became a hit because it came right after the great disaster, and everyone sought comfort and happiness in dramas back then. Marumo itself was honestly boring so I don't think it'll be that good nowadays.
Sadao Abe seems to have gotten smaller
So Marumo and the daughter of the landlord still haven't gotten married?
They still aren't living together with their mom? What are they doing?
So Master Ashida's already in 4th grade, huh...
She's only in 4th grade?
You lose some of the cute qualities that you had when you're in 4th grade
What period do they think we're living in? Uji TV just doesn't have the ability to conjure new ideas.
Do they just plan to keep on doing specials until the twins become adults?
Fuji TV seems so desperate, why not do Tokyo Love Story again?
Is their real mother (Tsuruta) giving financial assistance to Sadao Abe? Is it just another issue of child negligence?
There have just been too many detective and medical dramas these days, and very few home dramas. Marumo might transform into a long running series, like Wataru Seken wa Oni Bakari.
I hope Fuku-kun takes Ashida's virginity away
Fuku: "Mana, go ahead and take a shower"
Fuku-kun had one helluva major flop drama before, right? That one was Otto no Kanojo. (Related post HERE)
"Marumo no Okite 2044 - The Last Will"
The Mana Ashida I know is no more
Uhmm, no more of this please
I'm feeling Fuji's despair from this
Ashida sure has become cute. Well, I guess that she'll change drastically again in the next 10 years.
Ashida-Pro again, huh...
So her chest will start to bump up in 2 years. This kinda feels the same as Yumi Adachi's time.
Pro's just amazing. She's gradually traversing the path on her way to becoming a great actress. Even her movies are really good.
Sadao Abe's looks aren't exactly leading man material, but he sure has made his way to the top with just his abilities. He also has a lead role lined up for him in an upcoming TV Asahi drama, right?
I'm still waiting for Kekkon Dekinai Otoko's sequel. But it'll be tough now with the current Yui Natsukawa.
Their mother still hasn't taken them back? Just how irresponsible is that granny?
Yeah, yeah, Fuji's specialty: tarnishing the legacy
Look at Fuji who can only rely on gradeschoolers w
Sadao and Ashida-Pro won't be meriting from this. Fuku Suzuki will, though, because his dramas and variety shows have been continuously flopping. I would have preferred it if they used that kid in Tonbi who kept saying "Otoshan" instead of Fuku.
I'm predicting that the story will start with Aya-chan and Marumo's wedding, and then give birth to twins of their own, and end there.
I think it's not an overstatement even if you say that Marumo was Fuji's last big hit. These 2 kids have become major household names in just the span of 3 years.
Ashida-Pro: "This isn't the old me anymore!"
I think it's better if they don't do continuations of things like this, though
Then up next is "Marumo no Okite '16 ~First Love~"
I did expect them to do this wwwwwww
I get the feeling that she's called "Ashida-sensei" on location
Nah, it must be Mana-chan. You have such a weird image of her.
So all they can do is to rely on their past high-rating programs, huh
And the dog will probably have been changed to a different one too
They're still 9 years old? People are saying that they've grown, but even so, they're still in 3rd grade w
Fuku's got decent looks. He acts like a kid. I'm not sure why he's being regarded as some big-name personality.
LOL, Ashida-pro's got amazing style w And she looks tall because she's got a small face. If she continues to develop like this then she might become Haruka Ayase's successor.
And I was just relieved that my kids have stopped saying "It's Mook!" because we have a miniature shnauzer at home
Children sure grow up fast... Time sure flies...
