Code Blue

Posted 7 August, 2017 by Jade in Japanese Drama / 0 Comments

I know it’s not a book review or otome game review, I know what am I even doing these days? lol But anyway, July marked the beginning of season three of Code Blue, seven years after the end of season two.

If it can be treated one second earlier, the heart might start beating again.
If there is one extra helicopter, another life in danger may be saved.
If one more life can be saved, the Japanese medical community may regain trust.
There are more lives in this country that can be saved.

The “Doctor Helicopter” system was legalized in Japan in June 2007. A medical team is dispatched to the patients on a helicopter to provide medical care in the field as soon as possible. One day, four young physicians are assigned to this latest medical system. The doctors experience traumatic medical situations, deal with personal ambitions, witness the fragility of life, and they grow personally and professionally.

Watch it for them❤

Everyone in it is great! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ … Except for the guys. Sorry, not sorry. Aizawa (played by Yamashita Tomohisa) has zero personality, and Fujikawa (played by Asari Yosuke) is annoying.

On the other hand Hiyama (played by, my favourite, Toda Erika), and Saejima (played by Higa Manami) are amazing. It took me a while to warm up to Shiraishi (played by Aragaki Yui), but eventually she stole my heart too. I love these three and they don’t deserve the crap they go through; Hiyama and Saejima more than Shiraishi though because they go through a lot more than she does throughout the series.

While the series focuses a lot more on Aizawa and Shiraishi, the main potential couple (I know, I hate it too), there are some really great moments between the other characters as well as really great moments with the minor characters too. Other than Fujikawa, who seems to have improved this season, all of the doctors are great and the patients are fantastic. It’s nice to see that season three is following that as well, as the past few episodes have had some great interactions between the doctors, but could do with more patients with fun personalities.

However, we did get some new younger doctors in this one as it has been seven years since the second season. Unfortunately it seems like none of them are even good enough to qualify for the fellowship? Like, even if they couldn’t do some things at first, at least Hiyama, Aizawa, Shiraishi and… oh wait, never mind, Fujikawa was never very competent. I guess it’s fine. But, still, you’d think they’d know how to do some things? Each of the fellows in the first two seasons had done rotations at ERs, etc, and knew how to do basic things? These guys just avoid work ヾ(▼ヘ▼;)

Anyway, if you’re interested in medical dramas and don’t mind subtitles, I’m sure the fansubs of the first two seasons are floating around somewhere. I think season three has been getting fansubbed too somewhere? I’ve been watching it as it airs, but it’s definitely worth watching the first two seasons first (and the special!). Fall in love with Hiyama, Saejima, and Shiraishi with me❤
