The tendency of japanese ‘positive tv dramas’ to send an anti-relationship message kind of gets on my nerves.
Just because they make them with a purpose to send a message, and that’s the message they choose to send.
The ‘I like you very much (and half of the drama was centred about how I much I like you), but you’ll get in the way of me working my work so lets not be in any kind of relationship’.
And the ‘I can’t love people and do my work simultaneously, so I have to choose one and I will choose my work’ message.
The more you watch the more you realise that they are pathologically afraid or incapable of portraying functional adult romantic/family relationships. It’s either ‘schoolgirl-level childish romance’ or ‘sociopathic screwups everywhere’ kind of deal.
