I went into cardiac arrest when I saw this released on the BL DRAMA FORUM. I didn’t know I was going to see Non-tan’s name show up in another BLCD so I was surprised and extremely pleased! His job in Chocolatier no Renai Jouken was absolutely perfect and I was looking forward to more but since Non-tan had said he just wanted to try BL I wasn’t sure we’d be seeing him again. But we do! And Banzai! Unfortunately or fortunately, Non-tan’s paired up with MoriMori again. I’m not sad but I would’ve liked a little change since Non-tan was paired with MoriMori in Chocolatier as well.
Thus said, I downloaded this drama with too much enthusiasm and too much expectations. When that happens, I find myself unnecessarily disappointed in the end … but I have great reason too this time.
Missing Road is a BLCD but unfortunately there was no H-scene. -sobs- Here I was looking forward to more Non-tan moanage and aegi! Aaah~ Well, despite that fact, Missing Road turned out to be a fun listen.
Hiroki is your average everyday 18-year old who does archery. Out of curiosity, he one day enters a room his grandmother always told him not to enter unless he was an adult. There, he is transported to another world where he meets a strange beautiful blond prince and becomes “Houkakyu”. (sorry if I got the term wrong too)
Since Missing Road is a fantasy drama, it’s harder to understand up to a point. You could easily get lost in the stories with all does gibberish-sounding fantasy terms. That aside, the story itself is extremely simple to the point of being cliché. But hey, we get our Non-tan, so that doesn’t really matter right?
Non-tan’s character Hiroki was extremely entertaining. He played nearly the same character type as his character in Chocolatier only less pitiful and more witty, genki and funny. His inner thoughts were funny as all the weird stuff is happening around him. MoriMori played the playful prince and the way he acts around Hiroki is absolutely priceless. I got my laughs in this drama. Hell, even MoriMori’s chara’s sister was entertaining when she started complaining about her certain marriage with the brother of a chara Izan hates.
Aside getting Non-Tan love, I probably wouldn’t have listened to this drama. The comedy funny now and then but it bothered me how I couldn’t properly grasp what kind of world ルマルシャン was. In the ending, Hiroki’s safely back in his world and Izan has the ability to visit him (with the hairs Hiroki gave him, yes his hairs) … I’m really hoping we’ll get another Missing Road CD in the future. I’m counting on it. Until then, I’ve got DEADSHOT and Scarlet to look forward too.
