J-Drama/Movie Discussion and Postwhoring Thread
« on: October 05, 2005, 01:48:00 PM »
Okay, so I'm thinking there's probably tons of you who watch doramas here in JPH!P. So, here I am, making a (previously non-existent) dorama thread. Particularly because sometimes we all just need a good drama to get our emotions back on track. Write about your experience watching doramas, who's your favourtie actor, and so on! Also, recommendations would be good, since I'm always looking for a nice dorama.

One of the best doramas ever is Koukou Kyoushi 2003. It stars a few familiar faces, like Ueto Aya (上戸彩), Sonim (ソニン) and Kyomoto Masaki (京本政樹;  he has funky hair).
 
The storyline is as follows..

A schoolgirl, Machida Hina (Ueto) goes out with her friend, Kudo Beniko (Sonim). Both of them get split up, and in the process, Hina meets a man, named Ikumi (Fujiki Naohito; 藤木直人). Hina sleeps over at his house, claiming to be a 21 year old. Imagine her surprise, when he turns up as a teacher in her class the next day..

Overall, a nice romantic dorama. Alot of plot twists, but not too much that it becomes cliched. Definitely a nice dorama, 9/10.

Note : If you're posting anything that could ruin someone else's viewing experience (a spoiler), please post it in mini-text.

MOD EDIT:

DOMO might be a tad too specific for some people so I figured we could have one of these threads. Feel free to talk about anything really - actors and actresses you're currently fond of, x got married with y, recommend old and/or running dramas, ask random questions etc.

basically this is now the DOMO random discussion/postwhoring thread.

Ah~!! ^o^ Other than a jpop addiction, I have a penchant for following jdorama and that includes religiously downloading every single episode of nearly every dorama raw there is on D-addicts.

( I say 'nearly' coz I used to really watch everything but have been kinda tired lately so I started practicing selective viewing. )

Off the top of my head, recent doramas that I found more memorable would be :

Tobosha ( Eguchi Yosuke/ Mizuno Miki )
H2 ~ Kimi to Itahibi ( Yamada Takayuki/ Ishihara Satomi/ Ichikawa Yui )
Sekai no Chushin de Ai wo Sakebu ( Yamada Takayuki/ Ayase Haruka )
Umizaru ( Ito Hideaki/ Kato Ai )

Hmm... Okay! Enough rambling first thing in the morning. :P

I've watched only Yanpapa and Koinu no waltz completely so far...

Yanpapa is nice, has Maki :D , Miku Ishida and a cute Japanese guy... Well, it's a bit "embarrasing" at times, but funny and Maki is super hot. The cute Japanese guy falls in love with the mom of Maki and Miku's characters and they get together even if the cute guy is much younger... Then the mom dies and things get a bit crazy. :lol: (I don't think the death is a spoiler because it happens so early.)

Koinu no waltz didn't have subs so I didn't understand anything. But it has blind piano player Nacchi, Narumi Konno and Miura Rieko who has an awesome voice (fo sho). So... It was worth it even though it had a fucked up, crazy storyline :lol:

I haven't finished Good Luck and Orange Days yet, but they seem awesome. Good Luck has Takuya Kimura and it's about... Flying (airplanes) and of course romance... Orange Days has a deaf character and is very much about romance as well... Both of these dramas have the super sexy Kou Shibasaki and are both funny yet tear-jerking, like good dramas are supposed to be. :lol:

& I have Beautiful Life downloaded, but I haven't even started watching it. o_o

I just watched Densha Otoko Another Finale SP which mainly focused on Densha's rich friend with the side story of "Guitar Otoko". The very end of this special with Densha and Hermes was funny :).

Yeah, the Another Finale SP was pretty funny. Sonim was so cute (read : hot) in it, and I didn't think the Tigers otaku was suffering so much..;_; Sonim sounds a little like Yui with her way of speech haha.

Densha Otoko is good. Everyone get it! :D

I'm getting that kamisama show now, it better be good

Well the best thing about Another finale was that it was one episode more Densha. But I as an extra episode I didn't find it so good. Just scenes cut out from actual series tied together with light storyline. Maybe it's better to see these scenes like this rather than just put them into a dvd though.

I'm watching Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003, it's pretty good but I find it alittle boring. :/


Densha Otoko was really good, I couldn't enough of it. Too bad it had to end :(

Has anyone seen Gokusen 2?

I liked the first one, but I tend to dislike sequels so I'm unsure whether to get it or not.

That was my favourite from last year. ^^

I am currently trying to finish the last season drama, Jyoou no Kyoushitsu, just 2 more episode to go. It's pretty entertaining.

From last few season, I would recommend Tiger & Dragon, Densha Otoko, Jyoou no Kyoushitsu and Anego.

For current season, I highly recommend Ichi Ritoru no Namida and Hana Yori Dango! ^^

Hana Yori Dango! Yay!

I love the girl who plays Tsukushi. She's soo cute! And I love her expressions that she makes! :)

Oh yeah, Matsumoto Jun and Oguri Shun are part of the F4, of course. Nice eyecatch!  :lol:

And final thing! Matsushima Nanako is in it too!  :shock:

I've seen one episode so far and I find it entertaining. I guess if you like the first one you'd probably like this one.
