Netflix reality series Love is Blind: Japan season 1


Like the previous entries of Love is Blind, this is all good, but it makes you wonder whether renewed versions of the series present on television will make the audience tired of the format. 

This review of the Netflix reality series Love is Blind: Japan season 1 does not contain any spoilers.

If the recent seasons of Love is Blind, The Bachelor, Too Hot to Handle, Married at First Sight, and Big Brother VIP (Australia) weren’t enough for your reality tv urges, then fear not! There’s a new season of Love is Blind coming! However, much like how there was a Brazilian version, audiences are getting a Japanese version too.

Much like Too Hot to Handle, you’ll carry on watching Love is Blind: Japan even though you know you shouldn’t. It’s addictive, and it’ll be hard not to binge your way through it. Although, you have no choice but to wait as it is only the first five episodes getting released on 8th February, with the following four episodes airing the week after (15th February), and the final episodes airing on the 22nd February. (In total, there will be 11 episodes). Personally, I feel that it would have been better (and less torturous for audiences) if the show aired the series in full.

In a similar fashion to the original version of Love is Blind, the contestants live in separate living quarters for the first 10 days. The only chance to speak to the opposite gender is through those famous pods. Of course, in these pods, the contestants won’t be able to see each other. Their form of communication will be solely through voice and voice alone. 

With the first minute of Love is Blind: Japan providing us with just a few hints/clips of what is to come, I’d suggest watching that more than the trailer. As for the show itself, it has a total of 11 episodes with its fair share of drama. Although none is as juicy as the reveal related to Nanda, Thiago, and Mack in Love is Blind Brazil. Even so, Love is Blind: Japan is fun, quirky, and bizarre. And that’s exactly what audiences will be wanting!
