This story takes place in an alternative universe where the Japanese population has declined such that Japanese people are becoming scarce.Â Consequently, they are constantly being pursued by people will ill intensions.Â It is in this situation where Gram (CV: Sakurai Takahiro) (the third son from a noble family in England) came across the Japanese 16-year oldÂ Sakura (CV: Fukuyama Jun).Â Looking at the poor Sakura who was captured and auctioned, Gram bought him and even proposed to him despite the warnings from Sui (CV: Miyata Kouki).Â Â Of course, Gram is interested in Sakura but the real purpose behind the proposal is thatÂ theÂ fake weddingÂ enables Gram to protect Sakura fromÂ other people who attempt to hunt down the Japanese.Â In order to live a new life with Gram, Sakura learned English and he tried to say "darling" ^_^;; … (kawaii!).Â At the same time, Gram’s brother Hilbert (CV: Koyasu Takehito) arrived quite suddenly.Â When he saw Sakura, he kissed him and also alertedÂ him of the fact that his younger brotherÂ Gram is a pervert (which IMO is not true as he didn’t lay his finger on Sakura during the course of the drama despite he was saying Sakura was cute cute cute vv.) The relationship between Gram and Sakura was supposed to be a secret but Sakura accidentally revealed it. Then, Sakura learned that Gram was supposed to marry a girl but now it’s Hilbert who will marry because of the relationship between himself and Gram. However, Sakura also knew that Hilbert was in love with Sui. As a result, he thought it would be best to leave but of course (self-sacrifice vv)Â but naturally, without the protection from Gram, he was captured and in the pinch, Gram came to rescue and we have a happy end.
This is a very interesting CD with a very interesting setting even though the actual plot is a bit weak. It is also recommended for learners of Japanese like myself because the words and concepts are pretty simple to understand. My complaint is the lack of development in the Hilbert x Sui storyline. I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment of this drama if it’s available though chances are pretty low!
