We have three brothers and an uncle, whose ages are 9, 19, 29, and 39.
Years ending in 9 are bad luck years, so to have a whole family facing these years at once is probably the most far-fetched part of this show, proving that this show is like life.
Sometimes life just sucks, but even while sucking, you've got hope and you chase after destiny, etc.
They do a really good job setting it up. I think I was hooked the moment it began, from their use of stories to explain the bad luck age nine thing, to their constant use of the number nine in setting the bad luck suspense for each scene.
And then some more shirtlessness by the end of that same episode.
How's that for an introduction for him. Literally the first time we really see him in the narrative. He's pretty perfect as high school students go.
Seriously impressed. I hope that it stays this good, because I am already anticipating the next week's episodes, with much impatience.
