DEADLOCK 2 – DEADHEAT
Pairing; Yasumoto Hiroki x Nakamura Yuuichi
WAI! More Yuuto and Dick! OMGAAH! -squeels- KYAAAAA ~
Okay, squeeling and joy aside, Deadlock has become my absolutely favorite series … after Tanaka-kun. Or maybe their on the same level ….
Anyways … onto my review.
Summary: Two years after the events of DEADLOCK, Yuuto has been released from prison and joined the FBI in order to look for Corvus … all for the sake of seeing Dick again.
If you haven’t listened to DEADLOCK yet then the below rant will prolly confuse you … but if you don’t care read on ~
-bows- I praise Aida Saki-sama from writing this series. I haven’t read the novels (can’t read kana T_T) but if the drama is this good then the novels must be godlike. I thought the FIRST DRAMA was intense but DEADHEAT is just as intense if not even more. I was on edge the entire way, clutching my pillow like I was watching a scary movie or something. I’ve NEVER been that on edge listening a drama … EVER. The adrenaline … the stress … the panic … GAH! I thought I was going to die of anticipation.
The music, the voice acting, the story, the H (despite short), the ending (which was the biggest cliffhanger for me since Geass) was all so damn perfect.
(I think I’m flattering this CD too much but I haven’t listened to anything this good since Kotohana no Hana and Azayakana Renjou … which ironically are both Kamiyan-uke dramas ….)
I don’t want to make a more detailed summary about this drama … well, I never do … but this time it’s because it’s more fun to learn everything on your own. I know I’m repeating myself but MAN THIS DRAMA PUTS YOU ON EDGE! -shouts- The great voice acting from Yuutan-tachi is part of the reason but another big reason is prolly the music which really puts you in the right mood. It makes the initial tension ten times more tense. Really, keeping that much tension inside was NOT good for me. I had to keep from squeeling every now and then ‘cuz it was 1AM but okay …
Oh and speaking of music, Debussy’s clair de lune started playing in CD2 track 6. I was like “WHOA?!” for a second there and ended up losing the stream of what was going on all the while it was playing. Clair de lune always makes me think of twilight after all … but back to DEADHEAT …
I also wanted to mention the seiyuu because I loved them so damn much ❤ I can’t remember the complete cast but I remembered the essentiels … namely, MikiShin, Yuutan, Yasumoto and Yusa (LOL AT ALL THE “Y”s)
I’ll start with MikiShin because he kind of freaked me out in this drama. I honestly found him scary which is weird. Maybe I was tired or something but his voice did manage to put a chill down my spine. Scary murderer terro guy ><
Next Yasumoto. I never really like his type of voice but his plays Dick so well that I just ended up not caring about it anymore. One second he was totally cold and I wanted to punch him the next he’s all kind and I go “SQUEE!!!” … It really broke my heart when he was acting all cold towards Yuutan when they finally get to meet and talk. I found myself crying before I knew it >.<;;;
SPOILERS: My favorite scene in the DRAMA was in the second CD when Yuuto goes to see Dick in his hotel room and Dick acts like a total asshole breaking Yuuto’s heart. T_T The whole “he won’t play catchball with me” kinda cracked me up but I couldn’t bring myself to laugh because of how sad the scene was. I’ve never cried listening to drama. Not even in Gin no Requiem or Hybrid Child … but this ONE scene really did me in. I’ll admit I only shed a few tears but managing to make me cry is a big feat. I’m not one for tears after all.
Then we have Yusa! I can’t recall listening to a drama in which his played a main character but I really do love this guy. I have to remind myself to listen to BLCD he stars in after this … but anyways! I thought I was going to hate Rob (Yusa’s chara) because he was aiming for Yuuto but I found myself really liking this guy. In that one scene where Rob was supposed to kiss Yuuto but was just teasing him, I was honestly disappointed instead of relieved. I wanted them to kiss! WHOA. That’s a big thing, really. I was really glad that they did get a kiss together later on tho’ … (but they didn’t go any further tho’)
Finally Yuutan … whose quickly become one of my absolute favorite seiyuu. I loved him from the second I first heard his voice as Tomoya (I think I said this already) … his probably my favorite uke/seme seiyuu after Sakurai (whose still my God) … which is big considering Yuutan hasn’t been around for that long I believe. It also makes me laugh how he’s always the first to talk in the freetalks. God do I love this guy ❤ -squeels-
But Yuutan aside, his portrayal as Yuuto was …. okay, fuck the pretty words. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! I absolutely love ukes of Yuuto’s type. Most of time the cool type but is actually really really cute inside. I really loved how Dick had compared Yuuto to his dog. That was fun ~ and kind of Zack and Angeal all over again …
((Speaking of Final Fantasy comparisons, I finally finished Meine Liebe and I couldn’t help but think of Cloud and Aerith in that one scene where Orphe meets his sister again in the flower field. Um hello? Advent Children flashback!!! To add at that, Orphe and Cloud are both voiced by Sakura … if Orphe’s sister was voiced by Sakamoto Maaya it would’ve been perfect … since they say the “You came” line))
Okay. My rant has gone on long enough. So to finish …
I WANT MOAR NOW! -cries- I can’t wait for the next release in this series.
