Juui Dolittle Review

The adorable dog

Tottori Kenichi is a foul-mouthed but gifted veterinarian nicknamed Dolittle. His catch phrase is ‘pet care means business’. He is the director of his animal clinic and rescues not only ‘voiceless’ pets but also helps their owners, who lack understanding and caution, with their problems and worries. Working with him is animal nurse Tajima Asuka. Hanabishi Masaru is Dolittle’s friend, a charismatic vet and host of a popular TV animal show who is good at making diagnosis but has a secret as he could not overcome his phobia of operating on animals. The drama focuses on the friendship between those 3 and tries to teach viewers about human-pet relationships.

Considering the actors in this drama I was hoping the drama would be really good unfortunately I did not think it was amazing. That saying the drama was decent enough for 9 episode, being a short drama it was fun to watch for those days when you have nothing else to do.

The drama is mostly about human relationships with animals and though its really sweet and some episodes were fun to watch I feel that this drama over exaggerated certain bits quite a lot. I also hated how the line ” Vet is a business” was over used.

The drama also did not have enough depth, the characters were not allowed to evolve and certain stories itself did not have enough structure. They gave to much attention to the animals and not enough to important things like the building of  character relationships. The characters in this drama were very likeable and the actors did a good job but they will not impress first time viewers of  Oguri Shun and Inoue Mao so they wont see the potential of them and know how well these people can  actually act and leave an impression. I think that there was a potential in this drama to be longer then 9 episodes and more of a solid plot which can actually come together to form a better drama.

Certain parts of this drama made it likeable enough to watch though. The cute animals, the lessons each episode gives out and the actors. My favourite episode was episode 4, it was a bit like lady and the tramp.  I do think that the fans of Ogur Shun, Inoue Mao ( Hana Yori Dango) and Narimiya Hiroki (Orange Days) will like it. If your a fan I do think you should give it ago and also if you have nothing else to watch, watch it because even though its not perfect certain parts of the drama are good enough to find entertaining.
