The lovely ladies of Perfume starred in their first ever drama special episode, "Pensées" (pronounced as pan-see), last March 31st and April 1st. "Pensées" is a French word that means "reflection" or "thought". According to http://dictionary.com, "Pensées" is also a collection of notes, essays, etc. dealing with religious and philosophical matters by Blaise Pascal, published in 1670. This was also shown in the drama.
A-chan plays as Don-chan, an office lady; Yuka-chan as Okamido who helps her parents manage their grocery store and Nocchi as Noribu who works as a part-timer in a clothing shop.
"Pensées" revolves around three childhood friends who decided to buy a Western house for a very cheap price. However, there is one condition. They should take care of Rikimaru. Unknown to them, Rikimaru turns out to be a middle aged man not a dog!
We all know that Perfume members are new in this kind of thing so their acting is not par with known Japanese actors and actresses. However, I assure you that this is a very heart-warming Japanese drama! The show teaches about reconnecting with life and having a warm home. I love the part when Don-chan, Okamido and Noribu welcome Rikimaru back in their home. In all honesty, I was nearly in tears!
The drama script was provided by Kizushi Izumi who was also responsible for "Nobuta wo Produce" and "Q10". While, the theme entitled "Doushite konna ni kanashin darou" was written by Yoshida Takuro. Meanwhile, this show is also directed by Goto Yosuke.
You may download the drama from Nyaa torrents. While, you may get the English softsubtitles by Skeweds Studios from d-addicts.
