‘Good Morning Call’ was due to air on the 3rd January but due to management trying to change the actors and the current production team wanting to keep the authenticity of the show intact, no exact date has been given besides a revised ‘Spring 2017’ schedule. I’ll add to this post as more news becomes available.

Original Post: 28th February 2016.
It’s the weekend and you’ve already binge watched the latest hit series and you’ve seen your favourite movie a thousand times over, now what? Even in this modern age where we have ‘on demand boxsets’ & ‘catch up’ TV, sometimes you spend more time researching about what’s out there than actually getting to unwind and enjoying your weekend.
NETFLIX are one of many popular streaming sites that host 1,000’s of hours worth of TV and movies all at your fingertips. I happened to be browsing through their catalogue on Saturday evening trying to find something to take my interest and found a hidden gem amongst all the titles available and the fact it was a Japanese Comedy/Romance was a bonus.
I’ve been impressed with the anime that NETFLIX has on offer considering licensing issues and the fact they have both Crunchyroll & FUNimation to contend with. I wasn’t aware NETFLIX had an interest in showcasing Japanese TV to the worldwide masses and it’s been a refreshing change! This Manga turned live-action series is available via Fuji TV On Demand and now worldwide thanks to NETFLIX.
‘Good Morning Call’ had a fantastic first episode combining Comedy and Romance with a twist. The series stars Haruka Fukuhara as Nao Yoshikawa and Shun’ya Shiraishi as Hisashi Uehara, a pair of high school students who accidentally end up sharing an apartment. Their relationship both within the walls of their apartment and being seen publicly at their school are both very different and it’s entertaining to watch how the dynamics change between the pair and the fact Nao can’t tell anyone she’s living with the hottest guy in the school!
Imagine the vocalist of your favourite band parading through your school corridors to screams of excitement and awe and that’s how the schoolgirls react to Uehara‘s presence on a daily basis! Also, as I’m trying to get the ball rolling again to start learning Japanese, hearing the dialogue is a great way to learn and listen whilst reading the subtitles.
In a similar fashion to ‘Better Call Saul’ which currently airs in the US on the AMC network and released on NETFLIX the following day in the UK, ‘Good Morning Call’ is released on a weekly basis every Friday with each episode lasting roughly 49mins. I’ve really enjoyed the first two episodes that I’ve seen so far and intrigued to see how the story will progress over the coming weeks!
