Meguri Ai [Refrain][TV] : Information

0 comments Post a Comment

I haven't seen this series yet so frankly I have no comment. I did catch a bit of Episode 1 and I am not sure but I wonder is the girl acting as his girlfriend during the present time was also the youngest sister in Under Same Roof? She looks terribly familiar and similar to that actress. All I know is it was in 1998, plenty of kissing scenes and a short story told in a long way. Read mostly positive reviews but the negative ones seem fair enough. Good news is I found a place to download all episodes, great news is with English subtitles hardcoded and from what I can see, not that I can verify the accuracy of the subtitles, but it does seem reasonably good but bad news is I suspect it may be a TV broadcast subbed version and worst news is quality is terrible but some consolation news, it is still watchable.

More info after Read More link.

Meguri Ai [Refrain]

A Bit On The Title
In Japanese, めぐり逢い. Used online translator which translates the title as Round Encounter and I do understand what it means. Basically a longwinded way of meeting each other again and again and again. I think that is the basis of the storyline. Some said that it reminded them of the Chinese movie, Comrades, A Love Story starring Maggie Cheung and Leon Lai. I have seen the chinese movie and frankly when hasn't there been a love story of 2 protagonists who meets, fights, meets again? The similarity ends there. Anyway official alternate title is Refrain but some do translate the title as Fateful Encounter.


TV series


Graduate student, Shuji, fell in love with his neighbour, Eri, who has a dream of becoming a dancer. However, Eri was unwilling to give up her dream and hence left Shuji to go to America. Still, fate brings them back together time and again like a bittersweet refrain.

Where To Buy
I don't think you can find this series, at least not one that is subtitled in English.

Where To Download
Found these in Clubbox with English subtitles hardcoded. I wasn't expecting that at all. Anyway the quality if well.. bad but not so terrible you can't watch. It reminds me of my VCD copy of Under Same Roof or the TV rip of Beauty Or Beast and so you can say this is like a TV rip or an old VCD copy. I suspect the subtitles is either from a VCD rip or hopefully, looking at the correct spelling and good grammar, probably broadcast on TV in a non-Japanese speaking country. Do you know how to get these from Clubbox? Nope, well great news is they're at Megaupload too! So look no further.

Some Sample Screencaptures
Taken from Episode 1 in full screen mode.

How to download & extract
All these can be found in Megaupload. I can only verify Episode 1 is fully uploaded. As for the others, if you download them and find you're unable to watch it or it is truncated, do inform me. Use Hotspot Shield if you're from a banned country. No worries, virus free. Quality is ok with English hardsubbed.
