Are Julie and Robin from Is She the Wolf together? We discuss the Japanese Netflix reality series and one of the main talking points.
The reality dating show format continues to evolve.
There is still an audience for shows that try to match people up, but the problem seems to be finding a unique way to present the format that is different enough to appeal and unique enough to keep viewers coming back.
Gone are the days when it was enough to watch couples go on dates. Now, there has to be some element of mystery and danger attached to a show to get people to tune in.
The latest in a long line of valiant attempts at finding a huge dating hit comes in the form of Is She the Wolf? This Japanese show sounds more like a Duran Duran song than a reality dating competition, but you have to admit the premise is interesting.
Five couples are involved in this game and are encouraged to get to know each other throughout the process in the hope that true love will be found; however, there is a twist.
In true Japanese game show fashion, one, or possibly even more than one, of the female participants is a wolf, and that means they are not allowed to fall in love and have to hide their status from the others, resulting in elaborate lies and games being played to conceal their true identity.
Now, the show may be new to us, but it has already been running for a long time in Japan. The format has been given a polish and presented to us through Netflix, hoping to attract an audience the way it has in Japan.
Whether or not the show will be a hit worldwide has yet to be ascertained, but in the meantime, viewers have slowly become invested in the couples involved.
If you have been watching, here is a short companion piece to the show that answers the question: Are Julie and Robin from Is She the Wolf together?
Julie and Robin’s relationship journey on Is She the Wolf?
It seemed that there was an attraction between Julie and Robin early in the process. The couple seemed happy to get together, and there was apparently an instant attraction.
Of course, it would be revealed that Julie was a wolf; typically, she had already developed a genuine affection for Robin. The rules meant that she could not have real feelings for Robin, which was tested when another participant requested a date with Robin.
Julie became jealous over the date, and the attention Robin was receiving, and it was not long before he noticed this. In the mid-season confession, she would open up to Robin.
Robin also expressed his interest in her but was not wholly committed to the relationship. Julie would retaliate, asking Masaki on a date, and the date would go ahead with nobody else crashing it.
The drama would increase as the situation continued to twist and turn, and Julie would become angst-ridden throughout the process. In the final confession, Robin chooses Julie, and in a moment of heartbreak, she releases her balloon, revealing she is a wolf, and walks silently away.
Robin would embrace her and kiss in a final poignant moment.
