18/40〜ふたりなら夢も恋も〜

Has anyone seen this show?

It’s a TBS drama that aired over this summer/early fall. It’s about a girl who just finished highschool and becomes pregnant, which conflicts with her dream of becoming a curator. She meets a 40 year old woman who supports her and they form a strong bond.

To start, I’m not really a fan of cheesy dramas, but this one was at my level and surprisingly easy to follow 90% of what was being said. My wife and I watched it over the summer (she mostly zoned out and sat on her phone. I was absorbed into the story because I could actually follow it).

I thought it’d be interesting to watch it again and discuss language questions or even just share opinions on the show. It’d be cool to discuss it in Japanese even.

So, if there is interest in maybe doing a watch through and discussing the show at all or sharing questions, I’d be interested in making threads as it’s not a very long series, I think only 10 episodes.

Though, I don’t think it was a super popular drama even when it was airing, so there may not be enough interest. But for high-beginner levels/low intermediate levels of Japanese like myself, it’s an easy watch where you don’t have to pause and rewind or go back to understand most of what’s happening, so you can just sit back and watch it in one go.

Let me know if anybody is interested.
