Dating spin-off tamer than original; can be melodramatic.

Cute, quirky and more wholesome than the American version. Still has a reality feel to it, without all the drama.

I enjoyed this version of the original reality series. Much tamer than the original, American version, with more emphasis on compatability and long-term relationships. The contestants are endearing and sweet, and they seem more concerned with actual connections than the American counterpart. I enjoyed watching how another culture expresses love and positivity in their relationships. There is a definite divide between this version and the original in that there is more class and less drama. However, it is still entertaining and I feel like American teenagers could learn more about positive relationships, boundaries, and real relationship topics from this version of the reality series. It would be boring for younger kids, in my opinion. There is some alcohol consumption, but nothing like the American version. Some language, but again, not as crass as its American counterpart.

Is It Any Good?

Though the concept is not complicated, the conversations and relationship-building sure are. It's interesting seeing the Love Is Blind dynamic play out not only through the couples but also with each other as contestants. Some contestants can be seen talking and gushing about someone they just had a date with, only to hear someone else talking about their date with the same person. The conversations in Love is Blind: Japan really deliver on this premise of anonymous dating; they range from awkward and stiff, to surprisingly transparent and intimate. The melodrama only increases once a proposal is accepted, where they have to face each other (literally), parents, and the outside world. Viewers will find this an easy, sweet, and entertaining show to watch.
