There's a Japanese drama called Trick. If we've talked in the past six months, I've probably mentioned it or you've seen the 2389298392 posts I've made about it on Tumblr. We discovered it whilst in Japan over the New Year, and something - whatever it is - called to me, and I now easily rank it in my top 5 shows of all time.

I can't be eloquent about it, guys. I just really fucking love it.

It's not an easy show to watch - I often don't suggest it when people ask for drama recommendations, because it really runs between the absurd, to the emotional, to the whatthefuck and back again. It can even be hard work in places, especially in season three - but I'll talk about that in the actual post.

But, for all it's faults; for some reason, it just clicks with me. It's got all the things I love in a drama - odd couple, banterin' and bickerin', bizarre events that have nothing to do with anything, a car that acts like a pet, a female character who possibly could be based on me and chemistry that's hits it so far out of the ballpark, it's practically in the next postcode.

I'm going to make a vlog for Lost in Omo! this weekend, and a proper pimp post - but until then, enjoy a selection of music about my favourite out of work magician and repressed physicist.

That's basically how I feel right now.
