Kinou Nani Tabeta/ What Did You Eat Yesterday? - Episode 1 (Recap)

Image
Trotwood: I’ve decided to work myself back into recapping by doing something small. I have been planning to recap Crisis with Hidetoshi Nishijima and Oguri Shun for awhile now, but I no longer have access to downloadable versions of the show with eng subs, and the project will take much more energy and emotion than I have now with the end of semester stress. I still want to do it, but it's going to have to wait until summer when my students are gone.
Kinou Nani Tabeta also stars Hidetoshi Nishijima but is a warm, calm show (at least so far) and even though I don’t know how many episodes it will be (it’s based on the manga of the same name so . . .), each episode is only around 30 minutes, so it's much more manageable than most shows. It also is making me feel good--soothing even with angst. I mean look at our main couple at end of ep 1.
Eating ice cream on the sofa at the end of a long day is exactly what I need at this time of year.

With a second cloud-jump Bai Qian landed on the bank of Qingqiu Lake, Yehua half unconscious on her shoulder. With considerable help from Yanzhi, she managed to stand up straight to support his weight. It was quiet, Bai Qian noticed and let out a breath of relief. Nothing had happened here, it seemed. A warm light suddenly exuded above her head, she looked up and saw the protective shield of Qingqiu showing itself for a moment, then disappearing again.

“Please, Headmaster,” Ning Cheng implored Ziyan tearfully, “please stop him from drinking.”

This boy was always overly concerned for his Master, but this time, Ziyan was worried too. He had already been able to smell the wafts of alcohol and utter misery at the entrance to the Chu Residence. It had been days since the owner had shown his face and Headmaster Xin knew, the blow he had had to take at court against the Changs had knocked him off his feet.

JoAnne:  Kim Jae Wook.  That is all.
kakashi: You are lying to me. It's not true that another week has passed! 
Trotwood: Take it from me. Another week has passed. I helped host over 1,000 visitors to my campus over these past two weeks, and I'm feeling like half of them walked right over me. It is really exciting and heartwarming to see everyone, but it sure is exhausting.
Panda: Somehow didn't watch more than ep 31 of Priest last week. Counting down to days when I watch nothing BUT dramas.
SakiVI: what did I watch? I don't even know.

“Scholar Wei!” Ning Yi called out, quickening his steps to catch up to her outside the Palace.

Feng Zhiwei stopped and turned around to face him. He found it hard to read her expression today. Had she been worried at all? Or was she getting used to the endless games of intrigue played in the palace, to seeing him stagger from one deadly trap to the next.

Just like one of the expensive royal hunting dogs his Father held, Ziyan had immediately gotten wind of Ning Yi’s elevated state of confusion. Not that he hadn’t teased him about “his pawn” before, only now it had ceased to be mere teasing, it had advanced into sniffing up his legs with bared teeth, ready to sink his teeth into Ning Yi’s flesh at the first sign of weakness.

Silence. Triumph.

The Dark Immortal stood in front of the Celestial Court, his two trusted lieutenants standing closely behind. The sky had returned to its former cloudless state before the commotion. Was this what he had worked day and night for during the last several millennia? Was this how they all lived? His victory against Haode was so effortless that it felt almost dull.

“NO!” a high voice suddenly tore through the silence.

JoAnne: This was a good drama week. You want to know why? Because it's the LAST week of OUR LIVES that we will not have had Kim Jae Wook, that heavenly creature, as a leading man. I am pre-empting Kakashi's usual ChenPic. See that? You know what that is? That is proof, dear squee-ers, that if you love something long enough, it will make your wishes come true.
kakashi: It was brought to my attention last week that Chen Kun doesn't wear anything at night. I'm severely challenged ever since. And there wasn't even any ChenPic in the last few weeks, Jo!
I guarantee if you put a bed time pic up I will remember it.
Panda: My job really sucks and it actually made me really down last week, but, BUT, hopefully I have drama fluff in way of Park Min Young and Kim Jae Wook to cheer me up :)))
SakiVI: Still sick and watching Britcoms with mom.  We are on Keeping Up Appearances and No Job For A Lady now.  I also accidentally sent a half-naked Jaehyo picture to a barn mom wh…

It was an entirely new experience to walk alongside Feng Zhiwei in an all relaxed manner, chatting friendly about trivial things. New but rather pleasant. Thus, Prince of Chu walked a bit slower than he usually did just so they would reach their destination a bit less quickly.

“I haven't thanked Your Highness yet for the property title to keep my uncle quiet,” Feng Zhiwei said shyly.
