My Summary: 

 

Otaro Dojima is a money hungry who works as a popular host and he believes that love is the root of all evil.... (wtf dude?) He pursue a woman, whose family owns a huge billion yen company, and does everything in order to get what he wants. At first he keeps dying, because of a woman who keeps kissing him (hence the title Kiss That Kills), and then he goes back 7 days in the past. But, dude finds out he can go back and rewrite the past in 7 days and uses the woman.

 

My Thoughts: 

 

It's a good plot, although some of the acting is a bit over reacting, but then again, if I die over and over again and trying to find my killer at the same time, its probably the exact same reaction. The cast is actually great. I ship Otaro and the Woman that kills with a kiss rather than Mikoto. Also, Mackenyu's really great in here. Yamaken not so much imo, but hey some people beg to differ.

 

LOTS OF KISSING IN THIS DRAMA, THOUGH! GOOD KISSING, TOO! Not like those stiff kissing where the lips don't move af. Oh, and the story is fast paced so I don't easily get bored, thank god. And they don't drag the shit out of it. I like the mystery part of this rather than the romance part. I can, also, definitely say this is more of a mystery and thriller rather than a romance drama. Don't watch the first two episode at night. My mistake and creeps the shit out of me. Downside of it is, its a bit predictable for me.

I think I saw the ratings for this wasn't off to a very good start. 

At least, I thought it'd be better considering it had YamaKen, Mackenyu, Araki Yuko, and Masaki Suda. Looks like they packed it full with a whole bunch of popular actors/actresses.

It's actually really good, imo. Its a thriller, mystery and comedy at the same time. I love the mystery part.

Its funny though. I don't root for his character, but the plot is good. The only people I feel really bad for them is the "Killer Kisser Woman" and the Rich Girl. Both lead, Mackenyu and Yamaken are douches in this. Spoilers:

I'm liking it. Thought I'd just stay for the cast after Episode 1 (because it was honestly tiring to watch), but the next episodes improved so much that I'm now on it for the story and characters.

I have minor issues on some scenes though, i.e the hospital scene with Kazuma and Otaro. Still I can ignore those because of how things got interesting.

I'm at the third episode right now, the drama gives me Death Note vibes with the contrast between the two male leads and the god-like powers laugh.png I'm hooked though, and it's been a while since I've watched a jdrama.

Been finding where to watch Episode 4. I usually use non reputable streaming sites. Where do you watch yours?

​That's great! I actually forgot to put up there that the screenwriter is the same as Death Note Live Action. Not sure which one, but I think the 2016 Death Note.

Episode 4&5:

​Things are heating up. The mystery gets deeper and deeper. The fight between Takauji and Otarou is starting to hype me up. 

 

Spoiler

 

Okay, changed my mind on the shipping of Saiko and Otarou. I don't care who she ends up with, I just hope she finds her happiness. Also, is there a time limit for Saiko's kissing time leaping powers? Why didn't Otarou kiss Saiko again after what happened in the roof during episode 5?

Ep 5 was intense. Otaro was clever and has the time leap power with him but Takauji was able to out-smart him.

 

Spoiler

 

Maybe because once they use the time leap again, they won't be able to save Otaro's mom? They have very little time to do so when they went back to the past.

That's good theory of Suda Masaki's character.

Spoiler
 

This show is part Science Fiction right? Because if not, then its either paranormal or Fantasy. That's the only way I can say about the time loop powers. I agree about episode 5, its a good episode too. Man, we finally some bit of changes from Otarou. I forgot about Otarou's mom's situation.

Spoiler

So any theories you can think of ?

I was thinking that there probably is a limit to how many times the kiss can be performed as they are sort of actually dying in the process.

And so far I'm not into 'Suda is the younger brother' theory 'cause it would be too simple, I guess?

 

But I haven't watched episode 5 yet.
