Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta – First Impression

Toda and Miura play two teachers, Natsumi Uemura and Shuji Kashiwagi, at the same high school who are set to get married in half a year. However, the night before the school year’s opening ceremony, Shuji becomes involved with the young Hikari Saeki (played by Takei), without realizing that she will be a student in his class starting the next day. As Shuji struggles to help Hikari deal with the mental complex she is suffering from, he is also torn inside by his betrayal of Natsumi. Meanwhile, Hikari attempts to get closer to Natsumi, driven by feelings of jealousy and a desire to destroy the couple’s relationship.

Where to watch:


A very long title I know. The translation is “You taught me all the important things” I believe it is a reference to the teacher teaching the student. This drama is another adultery, scandalous style drama which is on trend in Japan with the other trend being Detective  ( Lady and Change ) and teachers that are hero’s (School and Misaki Number one). =_=

This drama is okay so far my favourite part is the ending theme song xP . Am actually watching it due to Toda Erika because I admire a lot of her past work. The storyline is also very dramatic and so out there, I had to try and see how good it is. This is one very shocking drama. It’s like a guess game where you have to keep trying to figure out if Hikari will let it slip or if Natsume (Toda) will leave him.

Miura Haruma has such a baby faced that he looks like more of a student then a teacher but am really starting to like him because his character is very debatable and he plays it very well.  I don’t actually see the chemistry between him and Erika unfortunately but I do see it between Hikari Saeki (played by Takei).  I do kind of want them to end up together but I feel there is more bad things to come.

I am not actually a fan of dramas with teacher and student relationships because I know it never ends well and its predictable but I think I will carry on watching this drama just to see where it leads. It has a lovely soundtrack which is mainly English songs in between scenes that fit perfectly. If you like these kinds of dramas give it a go if not then I don’t think its worth wasting your time and you should try another Japanese drama especially old dramas as lately I do think Japanese dramas are not as good as they used to be.. Try Classics like Gokousan, Hana Yori Dango, Yukan club and such other popular likeable dramas.

Pictures are my own unless stated otherwise.

    i really want to watch this drama because i love all 3 leads but i love erika too much and i’m worried that the ending will make me SAD. i totally agree wtih u though on the fact that jdramas are not as good as they used to be. i’ve now moved on to kdramas, and i feel slightly unsettled because i’ve betrayed jdramas lol. and i’ve been trying to find good blogs, urs is moving along quite well. thank you for a good read =)

  2. Aww thank you <3 It was only my first impression I have not had the chance to carry it on yet but Ill be sure to put a full review down as soon as I have finished it. ^^ Jdramas were my first love as well and am hoping the new ones that are coming out are going to be fantastic because I miss how simple and heart warming Japanese dramas can be. If you want to watch a Japanese drama try old ones that you have not had a chance to watch =)

    hey =)
    can you believe it? I FINISHED IT. after reading several reviews, i was mad that this drama was not as good as it can be. seriously i would give it 9.5/10 (my opinion), but i guess if i was a critic it basically deserves a 7.5/10. of course we have to take into account that i’m a super erika toda and miura haruma fan, so my ratings are a bit skewed. i’ve actually started watching dramas since love generation times so i’m quite a drama freak. after reading ur blog though, i am tempted to build my own LOL, but i don’t have quite the willpower to commit. anyways i was routing for NATSUMI all along and it pissed me off so much (like the things shuji was doing). be sure to finish it ne~

  4. oh my god you already finished it!! waa quick xP yeah i think if i finish it I’ll get a bit biased too due to the fact that I just watched miura haruma in kimi ni todoke and he was so cuteeee >_< You should try your own blog, Id like to read your reviews xP just do them randomly or whatever lol. Ill be sure to let you know what i thought of it as I hope to finish it soon ^^
