This tells the love story of Sota Koyurugi, a chocolatier, and is based on the manga of the same title written by Ms. Setona Mizushiro. Sota goes to France for his training as he tries to make the heroine who is not interested in chocolates take notice of him. He comes back from his training as an "ikemen chocolatier" and tries too woo the heroine once more.
One thing to look forward to is how Matsumoto will portray the sweet, innocent and loyal feelings his character holds towards the heroine. Matsumoto comments, "I'm truly excited about playing a chocolatier for the first time. Chocolate making is a very delicate job as the amount of ingredients, temperature, and time are all very important. I want to prepare well for this role. I hope to turn this time slot into a "sweet and fun" hour and make the viewers want to root for Sota's love to succeed, while also enjoying the chocolates that will appear in every episode".
- 平均視聴率11％とみたI'm predicting an average ratings of 11%
- 毎回ちゃんとお菓子を作るシーンを丁寧に描くなら観たい。I'd like to watch this if they're going to include detailed scenes on how to make sweets in every episode
- また少女漫画の実写化かよ…。ネタ無さすぎだろうAnother live action adaptation of a shojo manga?... They must be all out of ideas, huh.
- 松本をイケメンとするには無理がありすぎる他の嵐のメンバーがブサイクすぎるのが悪いLabeling Matsumoto an "ikemen" is pushing it too far.
The problem here is that all the other Arashi members are too ugly.
- 恋愛ばっかやってたら即切りだなチョコ作るシーンちゃんとやって欲しいI'll give up watching this immediately if it'll just be a love story.
I hope they put in choco-making scenes properly.
- このマンガ好きだけど……松本か……I like this manga... but Matsumoto, huh...
- まーた恋愛ものか平均11取れれば良いほうAnother love story?
I think that an average of 11% is a good number for something like this.
- wiki見たけど原作どおりにやるとこのドラマに出たいと思う女優はいないだろI took a look at its wiki, but if they're planning to stay loyal to the original story, then I don't think that there would be an actress who would want to play the heroine in this drama
- まーたマンガかしかも現実にはありえないスイーツ設定松潤はもっと役の幅広げたほうがいいんじゃねえの？このままじゃキムタクの下位互換みたいになりそうAnother manga?
And sweet stuff that isn't possible in real life.
Shouldn't MatsuJun be playing a wider variety of roles?
He'll just become KimuTaku ver.2.0, rather, a lower version at this rate.
- そもそもイケメンなのか？But is he even an ikemen?
- 原作の人ってもとはＢＬ大手だった人だよねThe author of this used to be a major BL* author, right?
* (Boy's Love)
- 独特なのは認めるけどイケメンではないななんだっけこれ？あぁアンティークの2番煎じか・・・I'll admit that he looks unique, but he's not an ikemen.
And this one feels like a re-hash of Antique...
- これ主人公は一途に思ってる女以外にモデルのセフレとか出てくるけどそこはやんのかな友達に借りて読んだけど登場人物全てにイラッとする胸糞漫画だったわIn the original story, aside from the woman whom the main character has feelings for, he also has a model for his f*ck buddy. I wonder if they'll include that in the drama. I borrowed this from my friend, and all the characters in the manga are so irritating, this manga just made me feel sick.
- マツジュンの月9は楽しみ。陽だまりの映画見て、ファンになったよ。40過ぎのオッサンだけどね。I'm excited about MatsuJun's Monday-9 drama.
I became a fan after seeing the Hidamarino~ movie.
By the way, I'm a 40-year-old man.
- 松本潤（３０）もうオッサンだなJun Matsumoto (30)
He's already an old guy.
- きっと原作の黒さはなくなって無難恋愛物になるんだろうなI think they'll remove all the dark elements of the original and just make it a safe love story.
- 原作面白いのに何で松潤…orzThe original's pretty good, why do they have to use MatsuJun... orz
- キムタクすら２０％獲れないと言うのに懲りずにまたジャニーズ使うのかEven KimuTaku couldn't get 20%, and they're still persistently using Johnny's talents?
- 元々原作でも主人公が特にイケメンという設定ではない「一途にいじらしく」ではなく内向的で粘着質、うじうじと決断しきれない主人公とその周りの人物を読者が高みから見物するのが醍醐味、というちょっと意地が悪い変わった原作そこが再現できなきゃただのスイーツ月9でいつも通りだキャスト松潤と説明文から低視聴率確定の臭いしかしねえwBut the protagonist isn't actually introduced as an ikemen in the original.
He's not "loyal, sweet, and innocent", but he was more like a "persistent & indecisive introvert" whom the readers don't symapthize with but instead look down on, which is the appeal of that manga.
If they can't do that in the drama, then it'll just be your usual sweet Monday-9 love story.
Just seeing that MatsuJun cast there and reading the short synopsis of the drama already makes me feel that this will have low ratings.
- スイーツ（）歓喜の低視聴率ドラマ開始It's the start of another low-rating drama that will make the sweetheads rejoice
- これだったかな？ヒロインが主人公と付き合っているのに告白してきた男とも好きだからと同時に付き合って主人公にそれは二股だと指摘されたら「ふた…また…？」と自分の状況を自分で全く理解できていない明るい池沼だったという作品はWas it this one?
Where the heroine who was dating the protagonist also responds to the confession of another man and dates both of them at the same time. Then when the protagonist is told that he's being 2-timed, he says: "two...timing...?" and doesn't understand the situation that he's in at all.
I think it was this bright kind of retarded story.
- 月9でスイーツって滝沢主演のアンティークやったじゃんと思ったらあれもう12年前かよSweets at Monday-9, then there was Takizawa's Antique.
But oh, that was actually 12 years ago already, huh.
- 原作者：水城せとな＝マンガ家として売れる前に、ジャニーズに無許可でSMAPのホモ同人誌を制作して販売Setona Mizushiro
= She used SMAP without Johnny's consent for a homo doujinshi* and sold it before she became popular as a manga artist
* (self-published works, usually magazines, manga, or novels by amateurs)
- 月9は裏が弱すぎる2桁なのは月曜ゴールデンだけMonday-9 doesn't have strong programs on other channels.
Getsuyou Golden's the only other program that gets double digit ratings.
- 松潤もう恋愛ドラマは無理じゃね？But isn't it impossible already for MatsuJun to be starring in romantic dramas?
- 月9はなんで似たようなドラマ垂れ流すん？ もうダメなのわかってるのに。Why are all these Monday-9 dramas so similar in nature? They should already know that things aren't going too well, right?
- 松潤はかっこいいし嫌いじゃないけど演技がどれも一緒でつまらない・・・唯一のハマリ役が道明寺なんだから似たようなオレ様キャラやればいいのに何故か最近優男キャラばっかりやり始めたよねMatsuJun's cool, I don't dislike him but he acts the same way all the time, it's boring... The only role that fit him well was Domyouji so he should do those kinds of cocky roles again.
He's been doing mostly gentler roles again these days.
- こういうドラマは作ってはいけないという見本のようなドラマThis drama is the example of how not to make a drama
- 「ビブリア古書堂」の再来になる予感原作そのままは難しいんじゃないかなぁI have a feeling that this is the 2nd coming of Biblia Koshodou.
Making the original story as is into a drama is pretty difficult.
- 『西洋骨董店～アンティーク』だっけか？アレは良かった藤木直人がSeiyokottoten~Antique, was it? That was good.
Naohito Fujiki was, that is.
- タイトルがもうダメだなThe title alone is already pretty bad
- 松潤が嫌いなわけじゃないけど、粗筋からしてつまんなさそう。見ないと思うIt's not that I hate MatsuJun, but the synopsis in itself looks boring. I don't think I'll watch it.
- いいかげんジャニーズゴリ押し辞めればいいのに。ジャニってだけで見る気失せる。They should just stop overpushing these Johnny's talents.
I lose interest the moment I hear it's from Johnny's.
- これやる女優は罰ゲーム？So will it be like a penalty for the actress who does this?
- 二宮が超絶イケメン設定のドラマあったよな。あれはさすがにチョッと・・・There was a drama where Ninomiya was introduced as this uber-ikemen, right?
Now that one was a bit...
- フジテレビはまだこんなドラマを製作すんのかよ!?ｗｗｗｗｗ時代錯誤甚だしいなFuji TV still makes dramas like this!? wwwww
Wow, how extremely old-fashioned.
- タイトルといい内容といいフジの頭の中は20世紀のままのようだなｗThe title, the story.
It looks like the inside of Fuji's minds had stopped in the 20th century.
- セフレのシーンを重点的にやってくれI hope they give emphasis on the f*ck buddy scenes
- サエコ役が重要なんだけど誰がするんだろう女に嫌われる要素満載なヒロインだからなー女優冥利には尽きるだろうけど好感度維持したいタレントとしては致命的The actress who'll be playing Saeko will be important, I wonder who'll be up for it?
The heroine has all these aspects that will make her become hated by fellow women.
It will boil down to their assets and luck as actresses, but it will be a critical blow for talents who want to maintain a likeable image.
- 沢尻エリカぐらいの悪女を持ってきたら話題性で数字取れるんじゃねつか陽だまりの彼女とかショコラティエとか何で松潤に甘い恋愛モノをやらせたがるのかねThey might get ratings if they cast a naughty yet buzzworthy woman like Erika Sawajiri.
But why do they keep making MatsuJun play these sweet romantic stories like Hidamari no kanojo and now Chocolatier?
- セフレ役は矢口だなYaguchi as the f*ck buddy
