I agree ^_^ They're both awesome :heart:   I gotta watch the last few episodes of WB2 now. I just finished Dragonzakura and it was quite good. With Yamapi and Teppei, and even the Water Boys guy, it really was worth watching XD :heart: .

i've never seen water boys. is it a show more for guys or girls?  looking at your banner it looks more like a show for girls.  but you can never tell with these asian shows. :confused:

I have watched the first episodes of Sailor fuku to kikanjuu, teppan shoujo akane, and damen's walker.

Sailor Fuku to Kikanjuu seems really awesome and nagasawa masami is so damn cute!!!

Teppan Shoujo Akane, is alright, and again horikita is so damn cute!!! Plus the twins are also so damn cute!!!

damen's walker is pretty much a woman's show, I watched it for yu yamada :P it doesn't seem bad, but it's really not my type of show >_>

Still have more first episodes to watch...

I'm also trying to watch Dragon Zakura as it seems like an awesome drama and has a pretty nice cast, though I hate yama-p with a passion >_>(he always has my favorite girls with him in drama... <_< but now he even has a connection to my real life female exploits >_>).

The new season means new dramas to watch. Currently I am watching Tatta Hitotsu no Koi, 14 Sai no Haha, Nodame and Teppan Shoujo Akane. So far all four seem to be intriguing although I am still waiting on subs for Teppan to get an understanding of the plot. Can't wait to see how each one will unfold.

Post by: boykun on October 30, 2006, 07:35:53 AM
Nodame Cantabile
Sailor Fuku to Kikanjuu
14 Sai no Haha
Tatta Hitotsu no Koi


Nodame is quite possibly the best drama of the season. Production quality is high, and has a great cast and characters. Plus, its about music, and has Ueno Juri. Instant win. Sailor Fuku to Kikanjuu is really promising. Nagasawa Masami is really cute. 14 Sai no Haha is pretty interesting, plot seems to be getting dark as it goes. Tatta Hitotsu no Koi is one where I hope it doesn't get dark and emo. Seems pretty solid so far. Nice balance between romantic and comedic stuff.

I'm planning to pick up Teppan Shoujo Akane too, but I've heard of subs being shitty so I'm waiting until good ones, lol.

I liked it.  Even IF it wasn't realistic.  I still liked it.  ((God, How badly I wished SonyMusic released Tachibana Asami's single "Wish".~ :cry: ))

I was going to start on "Attention Please!".. but I want to watch another lovey-dovey drama.  Any suggestions? (and yes, I've already watch 1 Litre of Tears. ;D Sawajiri Erika<3).

Just watched Densha Otoko DX which is yet another ending to the drama. I think they should stop at this point, it seems like they've drained the idea now. Although there was nothing wrong with Densha Otoko DX I just don't think they should push it any further because they might break it.

It's alright I guess. From episode one, the dorama seems to feel like that of 'Yasashii Jikan'. The hometown + family theme? It definitely tugged at my heartstrings for sure, but I'm a crybaby so... :P

I have to say though. I didn't finish 'Yasashii Jikan' coz their jikan was just too yasashii ( too slow for me. >_< ) so I -might- give this up I don't know. Think I'll watch episode two and decide. :P

Hana Yori Dango 2 for now. Nothing much else has caught my eye yet for this season, so I shall just wait for some other reviews and more opinions to pop up before I commit myself to more dramas.

Still not done yet with 14sai no Haha, and Nodame Cantabile yet from last season, so still have some backlog to do.

It was pretty cool, lotsa scenes originally filmed in New York, makes me wanna go there for a vacation right away. Anyway if u had watched the first HYD, you shd catch this one too. This drama doesn't have so much 'shoujo-ness' as compared to Nodame Cantabile which was also derived from a shoujo manga, but it's still very fun to watch, and not to mention Inoue Mao was also pretty cute. ^ ^ I'm a guy so haha not so interested in Hanazawa Rui (acted by Shun Oguri), but I thought he was pretty kakkoii in both series so far.

The first episode is abt 2 hours though, so be prepared to dedicate some time to sit through it, it wasn't boring though so I will say this is worthy to watch for this season definitely.

Post by: StreakInTheSky on January 14, 2007, 03:26:03 AM
Currently watching Han Yori Dango Season 2 and Himitsu no Hanazono. I watched parts of a couple other dramas but nothing really caught my eye so far, if I hear of good things from other ones I'll try to watch more.

Right now the only must see drama for me this season is Hanadan, but because of dancestar's speed in subbing I'll probably watch Himitsu no Hanazono. I seem to really like dramas involving shoujo manga, but I'm not really a big fan of reading them...

Been slow to pick up the slack.

But I'm probably gonna watch a few..

Hana Yori Dango 2
Himitsu no Hanazono
Karei-naru Ichizoku
Haikei, Chichiue-sama
Erai Tokoro ni Totsuide Shimatta!

And last but not least..fuckin' Unfair! That's right! This is to hoping it doesn't get forgotten this time. I actually really watch everything that's subbed unless it bores me greatly o_o

I'm currently watching GTO, it's pretty good, though not as good as the manga. after that's done I'll probably start watching gokusen or taiyou no uta.

HOORAY~!!! ^o^ It's getting subbed again~!! ^o^ 'Unfair' deserves to be subbed over any other dorama of past seasons coz imho, it's one of THE most awesome doramas made~!! :tfr9a7wg:

Hana Yori Dango 2
Himitsu no Hanazono

Yes they do and Byakuyakou starts with the main character dying then it goes into a flashback.

Yeah i finished Byakuyakou a while ago when they finished airing...

I must say... the complexities of a criminal mind... phew
I suppose the producers/directors were really brave, getting the pair to act together a 2nd time which could possibly mislead people to think that it'd be another 'girl gets sick and dies, leaving the guy alone' kind of drama...

Well.  I've finally hopped on the "Hana Yori Dango" train.

Actually, I've had it sitting on my harddisk for a couple of months.  Just never wanted to watch it.  But here I am, on a day off from work with nothing to do - so I watched it.. and ;__; let me tell you.  It's good. lol.

I'm only halfway done with it, but when I'm finished with it; I'll be watching season 2 of HYD.

While the JPhip family was watching 1 Litre of Tears, I kept putting it off because I had an ORDER (queue) of which dramas to watch and when...

so recently I finally got around to watching it after having seen the "saddest of k and j-drama over the last 15 years"...

ok, you were right.

It kicked my ass,

It humbled me,

It made me a fan,

It made me cry,

It made me sob,

It made me think.

It makes me feel better.

Thank you.

Fantastic work.

After maybe 10 months of stretching it out, I FINALLY finished "Nobuta" a couple days ago.

No big shakes: standard-issue jdorama cliche.  I'm glad there was no sappy resolution between Nobuta and her "producers."  Also the ending didn't enrage me as much as it did others; lowered expectations has a way of improving things.  Of course the very last scene didn't exactly engage me -- "Shuji & Akira" remain the frootiest frenz around.

A friend's girlfriend proclaimed this the GREATEST jdorama she's ever seen, an amazing evaluation from someone who has seen "Long Vacation," "Hito-Yane" and "Aishiteru to Ittekure."

I'll also keep watching:
Proposal Daisakusen (ep2) - will he make a difference?! ;)
Liar Game (ep2) - It can only get better >:D
Seito Shokun (ep2) - high school drama. students with a dark past. bring it on 8)
Sexy Voice and Robo (ep2) - how more weird can they get O0
Watashitachi no Kyoukasho (ep2) - I felt part 1 was boring as hell, but part 2 was so touching it suprised me! :'(

Just Finished:
Nobuta wo Produce - I liked it. But the ending kinda left it hanging...
Engine - Love this story. Cried on ep. 8. But again the ending.... Hanging...
Densha Otoko - I like the forumers. Kazuya and Jinkama-san makes this story alive. But the main character was too annoying for my liking. Probably because i've never seen a person like that in my whole life.
Kurosagi - Cool! The ending was one of the coolest. BANG!
Tsubasa no Oreta Tenshitachi Ep. 2 - Not that interesting, but Maki is cute. Well, was kinda odd seeing Ryuzaki become uncool. If you know what I mean.

On the way:
Seito Shokun - Story is developing, feel like killing that mitsui guy.

I'm watching Erai Tokoro ni Totsuide Shimatta! starring Yukie Nakama, the teacher from Gokusen. Yukie's character just got married and she keeps having to go to the country to deal with her husband's family. It kind of reminds me of Hanayome wa Yakudoshi except the mother isn't seen as mean. She is really kind she just misunderstands everything. Even though I feel sorry for Yukie's character all the time its a really funny show.

My mom was watching "Hakusen Nagashi" on some streaming site (Crunchyroll?) but they didn't have the last three episodes.  I taped this off cable a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away and the VHS was playable so I recorded it to the DVD recorder. 

Boy, talk about your time warps!  The drama aired in 1996 and Nagase looks like a teenager here.  I'm not sure what happened to the rest of the cast, including Kashiwabara Takeshi (who I saw on "Pokkapoka" later that year) and Sakai Miki (what a cutie!).  I saw Kyono Kotomi in "Shomuni" a few years later.  And that's that.

What happened to everyone else?  I know they had reunions for this drama a couple times; were those ever fansubbed?

My list for summer dramas so far, in order of importance.

Must watch:
LIFE (ep3) - school bullying, dark themes, i felt pain/scared when watching the end of ep3!
Tantei Gakuen Q (ep3) - watched the anime series. I'm a sucker for kid detective stuff.
Yamada Taro Monogatari (ep3) - lotsa funny and touching moments  :cry:
Nobuta wo Produce (ep3) - hehe. No, I haven't watched it before. Maybe I'll do a nobuta-marathon and finish it coming weekend. :lol:

Good stuff. All Comedies :
Yama Onna Kabe Onna (ep3) - I'd choose Misaki any day. :twisted:
Papa to Musume no Nanokakan (ep2) - You've turned my favourite drama girl into an old guy...
Hotaru no Hikari (ep1) - Guy and girl sharing one house = mess
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (ep3) - Too many cute guys in one drama, cannot compute~
(Toma's  :shakeit: and singing bit in ep3 is the funniest drama moment for me this year!)

To fill time:
Ushi ni Negai wo: Love & Farm (ep2) - Erika Toda milking cows. That's love right there. :yep:
Jotei (ep2) - She will rule the world... ok....um
Katagoshi no Koibito (ep2) - The relationship chart in this drama must be very complicated.
First Kiss (ep1) - The story feels like it was made in the 90's... e.g. the bro's  O0

Haven't watched yet:
Juken no Kamisama
Jigoku no Sata mo Yome Shidai
Sakurasho no Onnatachi
Tissue

Finished Byakuyakou the other day.  It's up there with my favorite dramas :heart:.  Started watching HanaKimi (Japan) - It's a little odd though, but then again, I guess that's how the show's supposed to be like. 

I'm also looking for similar dramas to Byakuyakou, so any suggestions? (besides Winter Sonata. lol)

I'm halfway through Kisarazu Cat's Eye it is a funny yet weird series. It has the same vibe as Ikebukuro West Gate Park which might be because it has the same screenwriter and some of the same actors.

For some reason I'm finding Yakushimaru Hiroko, the mother from 1 Litre of Tears, really hot in this series.

My feelings 2 pages back were pretty much spot on, with "LIFE" on top place.
Papa to Musume's light humor was better than expected. But so short! Why not 10 days!!!
Tantei Gakuen Q felt a little draggy at the end. But was still ok.
Juken no Kamisama was a suprise. I kinda liked it. :oops:

I'm watching Abarenbo Mama as well.  Hotelier was less than spectacular IMO so im glad Aya went back to starring in comedy roles where she shines at. Hope this drama will be as good/funny as Attention Please.

So far this season I've liked Dream Again, Joshi Deka!, Utahime, and Galileo. I watched the first couple episodes of Yukan Club but just couldn't get into it. I'm highly anticipating watching Iryu Team Medical Dragon 2, Mop Girl, Abarenbo Mama, and Hataraki Man.

Not a drama but I just watched NANA 2. I liked it but the ending was horrible WTF Hachi.

Startin' to catch up a little with this season.

I'll be sure to chase this bunch:
Mop Girl, Galileo, Joshi Deka!, SP (all mystery/cop stuff!). And Hataraki Man, of course. :)

Just watched ep01 of SP (this was actually the one I was most interested in seeing this season). The "danger-sensing" moments are so friggin' cool/funny!!~ :P

I like Galileo and Utahime the best...Galileo has some great protagonists and it's interesting although I'm not a huge fan of crime dramas, and I like Utahime for its period setting and colorful characters (and the theme song is great too...I've been liking TOKIO's recent singles a lot).

And I tried watching Yukan Club but, well, it was rather...doinky :-\

Galileo is honestly one of the better j-dramas I've seen...it recalls Trick which is praise of the highest order.  Even when the cases are silly (episode 8 was just absurd) the chemistry between the leads makes for quality entertainment.

Frantically trying to finish up RONDO.  My mom bought a Region-3 DVD set and I gotta give it back today.

What a wacky drama...

Love it!  That show is tragically underrated.  Made me a Takenouchi Yutaka fan :P

It's another comic adaptation, schoolgirl detective horror comedy mix in 20min episodes (kinda reminded me of sexy voice & robo).
Maeda Atsuko@AKB48 is in it. :oops:

pretty sure I'll be chasing it. :D

Finally got around to watching some pilots from this season.

Ashita no Kita Yoshio:  Of the three I watched, I like this one the best and will probably keep following it.  Kohinata Fumiyo is a pretty underrated actor, he usually plays supporting roles where he chameleons into the background (see 'Hero') so it's cool to see him headline once in a while.

Honey & Clover:  "RUUUURRRRIIIII, WHERE ARE YOOOOOOU?" (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Ruri_no_Shima)  For whatever reason, this is what flashes through my mind whenever Riko comes on screen :P  As a devout Narumist I'm pretty much obligated to follow this show no matter how bad it turns out.

Saito-san:  I admit I only watched this for Takamina >_>  Not very interesting so far, I kind of had to force myself to finish watching the pilot but maybe it will pick up later.

currently watching "Boku to Kanojo to XXX."  it's a manga adaptation and is only shown on the internet apparently... i can't seem to find any info on dramawiki...
anywayz each episode is only around 20min and there's only 7 episode, although i'm on the 6th.  waiting for the 7th w/ engsub to be uploaded on d-addicts.com.  it's a very funny show.  and the main girl, Takahashi Mai, is very cute.

I, sort of accidentally, watched the first episode of Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi yesterday. Because I never buy a tv guide, I usually don't know what's on. At first I thougt it would be some kind of crappy tv movie and at some point I wanted to switch it off because it somewhat tried too hard to be funny but I was too lazy to get the remote and I wanted to stay near the heater so I just continued watching and then I got curious.
It's such a strange / weird story that I now want to know how it goes on. Having Ayase Haruka :heart: helps it too.

Ashita no Kita Yoshio (great cast, interesting storyline. I also agree with the thread --> Yoshitaka Yuriko is H O T :P)
Hachimitsu to Clover (typical college youth romance. I love~~~)

Really want to check out:
Daisuki!!

Post by: Fracture on April 19, 2008, 06:52:08 AM
Watched the first round of all the "big" shows this season except for Change, which I expect will be epic.


The good:

Last Friends, I fully expected this to bomb but it's actually got a lot of potential as long as the focus remains on the story and not the goofy streak in Eita's hair.

Puzzle, I'm a hopeless Satomi fanboy and a fan of mystery dramas, so it's basically impossible for me to hate this.  It's a fun watch if you like her at all.


The bad:

Kimi Hannin Ja Nai, if you can't solve the "mystery" within (literally) the first ten minutes of this show then you've probably never seen a sleuthing drama before.  It could overcome its predictability with some interesting characters, except there aren't any.  Kaname Jun looks really uncomfortable in his role.  Just a bad pilot all-around.


The boring:

Muri na Renai, targeting an older audience which in itself isn't bad, but the snail's pace makes it tough to sit through.  The acting is okay and all, I just can't remember anything happening.  Has a lot in common with Kekkon Dekinai Otoko, but it lacks the one ingredient that made that drama watchable:  Hiroshi Abe.

Zettai Kareshi
, I admit I couldn't make it to the end of the first ep, maybe it's a great a show for fans of the original but it's definitely not my thing.

Catching the first episodes.
Code Blue. Mainly just for idol values so far. But, already liking it more than Iryu 2...

Shibatora was ok. Seems like every jdrama with Maya Miki just feels right! (totally versatile!  :w00t:)

But the first episode of Monster Parent was the one that got me laughing like hell. :P
OK, it's a very serious issue. And all sides seem to be right... still...  :rofl:

Just watched the drama version of Homeless Chuugakusei. Not sure how true it is to the original book, but I enjoyed it. And the cameo by Tamura Hiroshi himself was awesome. :lol: The kid that played him is identical to him, it's pretty damn scary. Koike Teppei will have nothing on him.

Started Maou as well.. Ikuta Toma is really annoying in this drama  :lol: maybe because of his character.

Will maybe start Here is Greenwood and Taiyo to Umi no Kyoshitsu (because of Kitagawa Keiko) if there are subtitles.

Just watched the first 15 minutes of the Princess Princess D dorama, and I think that's all I'll be watching. The story is ridiculous, and the acting worse. And it is probably the gayest dorama ever created.


On the other hand, I'm almost done with Maou... I want moooooore... It's been such an awesome dorama, and Ohno did such a good job in his role  :D

Started: DRAGON ZAKURA.

Just watched the first four (4) episodes and I gotta say: nobody does deadpan like Abe Hiroshi. Plus he has the tone of voice that actually engages the subwoofer, further accentuating the mood. I can't imagine how actors train to do this -- the blooper reel from this show must be tremendous.

Also quite an all-star lineup -- I guess you can gather up the kids before they REALLY hit A-level stardom. Aragaki and Yama-pi will headline the next drama they co-star in, and the budget won't allow anyone else.

Still waiting for the moment when Sakuragi's bosozoku background truly comes into play (I can't imagine the chimpira hoods running scared by the mere glimpse of a lawyer's coat pin).

Watching Room of King, Celeb to Binbo Taro and Ryuusei no Kizuna at the moment. Only watched the first episode of each so far though, but all seem ok at the moment ^^

Most likely going to drop either Celeb to Binbo Taro or Ryuusei in a couple of eps though, feels kind of the samey samey.

Nanase Futatabi
Main girl 'Nanase' remembers her power of telepathy (which her father made her stop using, when she was very small), after a traumatic experience.
She discovers a company project where kids were being tested for these powers years ago, and one of the ppl heading it was her father which was considered dead but his body was not found. She she starts a search for the grown-up kids, her father, and the project's secret.

I'm soooo into it.  :D

Watched the 1st ep of Q.E.D. that was um... pretty average. But I'll keep watching it, just to see how Ai goes.

Makes me wonder if Reina acted Megumi from Tantei Gakuen Q, instead of Shida. She would be so perfect for it. 2nd season please? :roll:
She could even get an excuse to dye her hair pink: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detective_School_Q#Class_Q

I lost concentration when watching Ep 4 of Mei-chan, are they trying too hard to turn it into a "comic" feel.
Yu Yamada should start bringing the hate and turn it to "Life". like making Rihito undress while she takes pics with her mobile or something. :lol:

Arifureta Kiseki starring Nakama Yukie currently! Of all the recent and semi-recent dramas i've been watched, this one seems to be the most promising thus far (it's up to ep 6). I highly recommend it!

Finished Akai Ito. Still watching Voice, Zeni Geba, Love Shuffle and Mei-chan.

Zeni Geba is pretty brutal in a way, makes me want to pick up the original manga just to see how much they've toned it down. :lol: Voice is merely for Satomi, Mei-chan just for Nana and others, and Love Shuffle is still my favorite of the season.

Mid season list, lol. Actually past that, but whatever.

Voice
Mei-chan
Kiina
Triangle
Love Shuffle.

As with Ayabie, Voice for Satomi, Mei-chan for its cast, Kiina for Kanno Miho. Triangle, interesting mystery. Love Shuffle is the favorite.

Same as boykun there, Kanno Miho is awesome.

Watched the Spring SP for Yonimo Kimyona Monogatari. Still as good as ever.

Atashinchi no Danshi ep1-2 (this "comic" formula is starting to get on my nerves. but I'm sure it'll be just as popular)
Ghost Friends ep1 (so far. meh)
Godhand Teru ep1-2 (kinda interesting so far. Still, would you let a guy like him do surgery on you?)

Will check out:
Smile (I think it'll be good, though I have no idea what it's about)
Boss (for Erika Toda again, of course! and it looks pretty funny too)

Add:
Forgot. Keitai Sousakan 7. It was on a whole year. crazy stuff~
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: boykun on April 26, 2009, 03:25:38 AM
Some kind of list,
Atashinichi no Danshi
Ghost Friends
The Quiz Show 2

Waiting to pick up,
BOSS
Smile
Godhand Teru


Atashinichi no Danshi is pretty ok. I'm mostly for Horikita. Ghost Friends is kinda.. eh, will see how it goes. The Quiz Show is looking good. Great cast in there, plus, Ayaya. BOSS, will check it for Toda, but it looks funny. Godhand Teru will be Hiroaka Yuta's lead role. Hellz yeah, no more supporting. I'll check out MR. BRAIN too, but that's after Godhand Teru finishes airing.

Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?

Hmm, new season, new dramas!

Watching:
Atashinchi no Danshi
Boss
The Quiz Show 2
Smile (?)

Atashinichi mostly for Horikita, The Quiz Show is pretty good, waiting to see how it pans out, but so far my favorite is Boss. Not sure if I can stomach Smile... it's MatsuJun and all, but... something about it just makes me kinda.. blah. I'll be checking out Mr. Brain after Godhand Teru.

Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Ayabie on April 30, 2009, 07:14:45 AM
Picked up Konkatsu!, Atashinchi no Danshi and Aishiteru. Dropped Ghost Friends.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Konkatsu yet. :lol: Pretty surprising ratings (or maybe not), but it's fun. The first episode of Atashinchi was alright, I'm just not so sure about the cast. Aishiteru is good so far, a nice change from the other two.

quite alright. watching it mostly for the cast (Horikitty Maki especially).

i'll probably pick up BOSS as well.

Majo Saiban is also suprisingly good. Watched 2 episodes and I'm already hooked.

I like Shiroi Haru too~ :D

Episode 6 of Boss was great. Kinda like a Jyoou no Kyoushitsu round 2.  :lol:
Majo Saiban and The Quiz Show also just had a suprising twist. Just in time to raise more interest.

Another series that suprised me is Love Game. Even though it's a 30min mini-story, It's still pretty interesting stuff. :oops:

柴咲コウ - ラバソー ~lover soul~ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MT6ICzG3OTg#normal)

Watching Tokyo DOGS.  It's funny, entertaining and some parts over-the-top wacky/cheesy.  The actions scene are decent, thought not first-rate, but the show isn't about all action anyway.  all in all, I like it, and my sisters seems so, too. 

btw, I wonder if the Japanese either can't make a great action drama, like some of their action movies, or that they don't want to portray that on tv?

Ryouma Den ep1 to 3 = very insightful, since I have no idea about this person's history except hearing the name every so often. I really hope to learn more about him from the drama.

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge ep1 = another cute guys series. Starting to get wary of these comic-book type of stories. Actually, it's just Nobuta wo Produce minus the school and Yama-p. :smhid

Tokujo Kabachi!! ep1 = weird way to make people learn law, but it's also pretty funny watching the pair fight. XD

Bloody Monday 2 ep1 = same high-tension atmosphere. And the same "didn't think they'd do that to that character" type of surprises too. I bet there are going to be a few more of those in the coming episodes. :)

I didn't recognize her in it (she's Ryouma's niece?). Didn't even know she was part of it. :lol:
I guess I would if she had any lines. So I think Acchan hasn't shown up yet.

Wonder if it's because her character isn't born yet.
Which would make sense. Ryouma is only in his teens right now in the drama, so he shouldn't have a niece that's also a teen. :roll:

And possibly may pick up Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. I'd always wanted real life Sunako and Kyohei... was really disappointed that Kame got the lead, but may consider just for entertainment value.

Just started JIN, which is now airing on broadcast teevee now.

Loving the all-star cast.  Raised an eyebrow to the parallels between Osawa Takao's Jin Sensei and Shuichi Sensei from "Hoshi No Kinka," fifteen years hence: expert surgeon, falling down the stairs, amnesia (feigned or otherwise).  Now all we need is a handicapped person to stumble into the plot.

Yankee-kun to Megane-chan. Only watched the first episode so far, it's just really funny.
Like the part where he recalls his past about how he became so good at fighting~ :rofl:
Definitely going to follow this one.

I'll check Zettai Reido next. Detective x Ueto Aya sounds just like the type of drama I'd like to see.

And also Pandora 2, in a bit. Wondering if it's a sequel or a prequel.
Too bad none of the original cast are in it, hope season 2 can create the heavy tension that the original did.

just finished watching yamato nedeshiko shichi henge, i dont like it, at all, despite all the hype about it and all the popular stars in it

started bengoshi no kuzu and yankee bokou ni kaeru
bengoshi is another profession drama; this one is about lawyers. One of those " 2 people with opposite personality working together and accepting another" type.
yankee bokou ni kaeru falls with the type of GTO and gokusen: new teacher with a problematic class.
Nonetheless, these two seems promising (at least from what i watched so far)

can anyone recommend me another?
i think i'm sick of unrealistic comedy drama already. when i watched hanazakari it was still ok, and then come mei-chan no shitsuji, atashinchi and yamada neshiko, etc.

so i'm thinking something realistic, with real problems that you can connect, something not too dark, romance is okay but if possible not the main drive of the story; the closest one i can think is beautiful life, heh, not too recent either.

thnx in advance

^I was going to say Buzzer Beat. But that's totally romance driven. :P

You could try My Girl. It stars Masaki Aiba (from Arashi). He finds out he has a daughter and suddenly needs to learn how to take care of her alone.
It's very emotional, and also weighs on some realistic and very serious issues. Like how he'd balance his mother's expectations, his work attitude, the best environment for his daughter to grow up, and also his career's future.

i think i've watched a dorama called my girl, but the story is a bit different, about a child star living with a guy, cant remember his name but it wasnt aiba, and there was kato rosa. i only watch a couple episodes or so couldnt really remember the details.
OK, i think i'll go look it, thnx

Post by: Fenrir on May 17, 2010, 08:29:57 AM
can anyone recommend me another?
i think i'm sick of unrealistic comedy drama already. when i watched hanazakari it was still ok, and then come mei-chan no shitsuji, atashinchi and yamada neshiko, etc.

so i'm thinking something realistic, with real problems that you can connect, something not too dark, romance is okay but if possible not the main drive of the story; the closest one i can think is beautiful life, heh, not too recent either.

thnx in advance

Hmm, these all range from a few years back to more recent. Wasn't sure what kind of genre you were looking for, but these are all more serious drama, some more romantic driven than others.

Good Luck
Hero
Pride
Mr. Brain
(lol They all have KimuTaku in them, but they all have a very good supporting cast which to me makes the drama that much more awesome)

Boss - Crime drama
Unfair - Crime drama, a little more darker, but I found it quite enjoyable
Galileo - Mystery
Haken no Hinkaku - Comedy/drama
Love shuffle - Romance drama, but on the more serious side
Nodame Cantabile - Romantic comedy, but better lol
Bara no Nai Hanaya - Slice of life, romance
Honey and Clover - Slice of life
Orange Days - Romance

I would list some more, but my friend is currently borrowing some drama and I can't remember them all.

Currently watching for this season: Sunao ni Naranakute, Zettai Reido, Tsuki no Koibito

Checked out some ep1's of this season. Ones I've watched and will follow (in order):
Mioka = Yoshitaka Yuriko :inlove:
Joker Yurusarezaru Sosakan = Buddha cop + cute Anne :heart:
Hotaru no Hikari 2 = 部長~~ XD
Gold
HAMMER SESSION!
Unubore Deka
Monster Magnitude 9 = unbelievably boring 1st ep :yawn:

Looking out for Nihonjin no Shiranai Nihongo. Foreigners are normally so warped in jdramas, wonder how weird they'll get in this one.

Fuck yeah, epic season.

GOLD - Nojima Shinji! Bound to deliver like he always has.
Mioka - Yoshitaka Yuriko :inlove:
Unubore Deka - First episode was hilarious with some Nagase x Kato Ai nostalgia. :lol:
Toubou Bengoshi - I'm sure they could've picked anyone better than Kamiji Yuusuke, but anyhow at least they provided the hottest drama sisters ever.
Hammer Session! - Seems promising so far.
Monster Magnitude 9 - I'm not expecting much from this, I just want my Ishibashi Anna fix.

Also thinking of picking up the first Hotaru no Hikari before I venture on to the new one, but that might be too much...

Gold is actually scaring me with its bunch of story twists.

Joker is turning out to be pretty boring though. sad.

Finally finished ROOKIES a couple weeks ago, which turned out to be pretty junk.  Shame on me for blindly hooking onto the baseball angle.

Watched Ep 1 of HOTARU NO HIKARI last weekend.  No big shakes but I've become quite charmed with Ayase Haruka so I will give this a chance.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Ayabie on August 25, 2010, 09:52:47 PM
GOLD - Best thus far as expected. I forgot how awesome of an actress Amami Yuuki is.
Mioka - Yoshitaka Yuriko. :inlove: No episode this week so another week until the finale.
Unubore Deka - Funny shit, I love silly stuff like this.
Toubou Bengoshi - Have all the currently aired episodes downloaded but I just can't seem to continue watching it because of the lead character. Probably dropping this.
Hammer Session! - Nothing out of the extraordinary, but it's watchable.
Monster Magnitude 9 - Probably dropping now that I can get the screenshots elsewhere.

I've never been a huge drama fan, but I watched Kekkon dekinai otoko this summer, loved it to bits, and went on to watch Trick. Oh my god, it's absolutely hilarious, and big props to the people who translated that, because the puns and wordplays are laid on thick. I just love it. Trying to not watch it all at once, because I want it to last ;_;!

Currently watching Unubore Keiji (or Unubore Deka) with Tomoya Nagase. Really liked him in My Boss My Hero, and he shines comedically in the episodes of this series that I have seen so far. There will be a series of well known actresses in each episode (already have seen Ai Katoh and Yu Aoi in the first two episodes) but it is Mika Nakashima that is really fun to see. Hope her part keeps getting attention.

Just finished episode 3 and 4. Ep. 3 with Kanako Higuchi. She is a well known actress with many roles, but she is lately most recognizable as Okaasan, married to Otousan, the proud Shiba Inu papa on the Softbank commericials. Ep. 4 with the always lovey Erika Toda. Looks like Mika Nakashima will get some more action in Episode 5.

In order of interest again:

SPEC (ep01-02) - Sequel to Keizoku (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Keizoku), which I haven't watched.
It has a Fringe feel with SPEC (super-powered) criminals running wild. Though the crime-solving reminds me more of Trick and Jikou Keisatsu. The moody camerawork is great.
And Erika Toda's KY character acts all weird/cute in it with her messy hair. :inlove: (I'm so biased)

Reinoryokusha Odagiri Kyoko no Uso (ep01) - Satomi Ishihara doing another loopy character. Just how I like it.

Q10 (ep01) - Its got Acchan in it. :)

Himitsu (ep01) - Traffic accident causes dead wife's soul to switch into daughters body. Pretty emotional 1st episode.

Guilty - Akuma to Keiyakushita Onna (ep01) - Simply having Miho Kanno act the anti-hero already has me stumped (totally not what I'm used to).
Her acting 2 personalities, 3 cases occuring in the same episode, dogs giving birth. It's too confusing~ :lol:

Iryu 3 (ep01) - More of the same...Wait, genius trainee Mitsuki Tanimura! :panic:

Yamikin Ushijima-kun (ep01) - Story from the angle of debt collectors. Pretty interesting stuff.

Jyouou 3 - Special Edition (ep01) - More of the same.:shakeit:

Kurohyo (ep01)- Based on the PSP Yakuza game. Punch punch punch. Nothing special.

Basically a bunch of weird dramas. :P

I certainly watch way too many doramas :oops:, couple recent watches in the last few weeks.
Uramiya Honpo, season one- Can't find it subbed anywhere but luckily can follow along with it close enough, Ayumi as Uramiya is one sultry tough revenge artist, also watched both specials and season 2 is on deck. :thumbsup

4 Shimai Tantei Dan- Sort of a zany drama/comedy about 4 sleuthing sisters who solve 1 or 2 murder cases every show led by the youngest sister played by Kaho. Quite corny and predictable but I enjoyed it. 8)
(http://i606.photobucket.com/albums/tt143/hitomi7/Dramas%201/vlcsnap-21118.jpg)

Completely agree with you on LIFE. I am not one to use hyperbole- but this was as moving a drama as I have ever seen on television. Touching on the theme of group cowardice versus individual bravery, but also emphasizing the beauty of empathetic friendship, and truth prevailing over darkness and greed. Please watch this drama if you have the chance. :thumbup

Beautiful Life (2000), Good Luck! (2003) and Pride,  all japanese dramas.   They all starred very beautiful female lead, tokiwa Takako, Shibasaki Kou and Takeuchi Yuko.   they all have one thing in common,  male lead, Kimura Takuya.  I can understand why he is a Japanese Hearthrob, but he is also a good actor.   
He plays a kool guy in those show, makes my think "Aniki!" too.  He's kakkoii.

Beautiful Life is my all time fave J-Drama, lost count on how many times I've watched it. You're right about Takuya, he's more than a pretty face, he really is a good actor, Engine and Hero are also real good watches. :yep:
Just had a rewatch of Majo Saiban, one of my top dramas from the last 2 years. The plot revolves around a jury in a murder trial, really intense, if you like Liar Game this one is for you. 8)

Finished up Hitotsu yane no shita, what a fantastic series that was, :yep: a drama with drama! Seen well over a 100 but this easily slid into my top 5, :twothumbs like dramas that rely more on storylines and characters than a lot of flash, highly recommended. If it ever finishes downloading, :( Homework from 1992 will be up next.

Checking out the new season. Same as always, from most interested down:

LADY~Saigo no Hanzai Profile~ ep01-02 - Totally fits my bill. Gonna be following it like crazy. :heart:
cute girl = Kitagawa Keiko (check)
cute guy = Hiraoka Yuta (check)
interesting characters = all weirdos (check)
fits my taste = detective drama (check)
speed = fast-paced storyline (check)
fresh theme = team-based profiling (all check) :peace:

Control ep01 - Basically Galileo with a psychologist professor instead.

Gou~Himetachi no Sengoku ep01 - Strangely starting to get into these Taiga dramas.

Kokuhatsu Kokusen Bengonin ep01 - It's Keibuho Furuhata Ninzaburo! But he's like a lawyer now. um... :huhuh

Gaikoukan Kuroda Kosaku ep01 - Continuation of the movie "Megami no Hoshu". Crazy good cast, but the first episode was kinda slow just like the movie.
Hope it was just because of the overseas shooting, and will speed up since they're back in japan.

Misaki Number One!! ep01 - High School drama. Funny, but seen a lot of these.
School - Primary School drama. A little more serious. Same, seen a lot.

Utsukushi Rinjin ep01 - Psycho neighbour Yukie Nakama.

I just finished episodes 1 to 13 of "Hancho"- unfortunately the sites where I normally watch J-dramas have all got busted links to the final two episodes (14 & 15)
Have to point out episode 12, which is the episode where a 4th generation Japanese American detective comes over to Tokyo to hunt down an assasin. The speech given by series star Kuranosuke Sasaki to the L.A. cop, where Sasaki's character, Hancho, is impoloring the American detective not to give in to revenge, as it would sacrifice the greater concept of Justice, was probably one of the most powerful character moments that I have ever watched in an episodic series.

I will be looking for more dramas or movies with Sasaki san- he is the real deal.

^^ I had the same problem too in not being able to watch the last 2 episodes, :sweatdrop: what a shame tooo as it was such a fantastic series. There's 2 more seasons of Hancho though not subbed yet(?). As far as Kuranosuke Sasaki goes, he's a fave of mine too, check out his movie The Mamiya Brothers, one of the best films from the last 5 years. :thumbsup
Mamiya Kyodai Trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFnQ080JXjY#)

Also the drama with him M no Higeki is highly recommended, one of my all time faves and another good one is Shimokita Sundays.

I am getting great ideas of what to watch from the posts in this thread.  :thumbup

Currently am at episode 4 of "Triangle" - great cast with Yosuke Eguchi, SMAP'S Goro Inagaki, Ryoko Hirosue, Masato Sakai, Saki Aibu, and Kuranosuke Sasaki, and more great supporting actors.
It is a murder mystery, but the murder took place 25 years earlier, and had never been solved............

And the remaining dramas from this season. :)

Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/kimigaoshietekureta/index.html) ep01 - It has Toda Erika = It's in my top 3.

Jidankoshonin Gota Keshi (http://www.ytv.co.jp/gotakeshi/) ep01-02 - A guy using negotiation techniques and behavioural psychology to help people being cheated/bullied.
It's a low-budget midnight drama, but I find it really fun to watch. It just skips my top 3 though. Why? ...my other top 2, Control and Lady, also use behavioural psychology for their stories. Total overlap!!! XD

Akutou (http://akutou.asahi.co.jp/) ep01-02 - Cop drama about a team of investigators that keep breaking the law to solve cases. Very manly stuff, not my type.

Saijo no Meii (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/meii/) ep01-02 - About a talented pediatric surgeon trying to change people's thoughts of running a hospital only based on financial welfare (adapted from the manga (http://websunday.net/rensai/saijo/)).
Nothing too special. I'd put it around School's spot.

Only missing Bartender (probably check it tomorrow) and 1-2 strays.

So basically, for this season so far. My main 3 will be:
1. LADY~Saigo no Hanzai Profile~
2. Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta
3. Control

LADY~Saigo no Hanzai Profile~

started watching Umizaru, Voice, 81 Diver and Reinouryokusha Odagiri Kyoko no Uso but got busy/distracted/lazy

hope BOSS 2 does not disappoint.

Just saw an episode of Yankee-kun to Megane-chan so I guess I'll start that too...eventually.

Watched SPEC and I don't really get the ending but at least Toda Erika and the gyouza looked good.

I like Unubore, I just get side-tracked easily. Bartender is kinda ok, good to kill time with. Really liked the first episode of Mr. Brain, looks like it'll get better too.

Finished off Lady. It ended with a tiny mind game. Nothing crazy, but a nice way to resolve the character.

Did a speed watch for the late-night drama Quartet (http://www.quartet-tv.com/).
Comic-adaption (never read it) about a bunch of misfits going undercover to bust a drug boss.
It has some nice moments. Kinda surprised me that they actually found some good chinese actors, not the ones with fake accents.

Still haven't touched like 10 of the Fall season dramas. :roll:
Which might be a good thing. No need to wait, and just marathon them. :P

Fansubbing was completed on Osen? I forget if I finished it.

BOSS 2, Majisuka 2 and will start Hagane no Onna 2 soon.  Wonder if Young Black Jack is worth checking out?  Well I did check out the godawful live action Negima (did that get subbed?) and finished Yukan Club so it can't be worse, right?

No subs for BOSS 2 yet but it's kind of disappointing that Toda Erika and Kichise Michiko's roles seem to be less this time.  At least there's Shaku Yumiko (for at least 2 episodes so far anyway).  Plus Amami Yuki is pretty badass.  For a second I got her confused w/ Kimura Tae from LADY since they look a little similar.

Gonna track down the subs for BOSS 2 episode 2 then!  Was so disappointed episode 3 was pushed back a week because of figure skating!!!!  :panic: :panic: :panic:

Was F5-ing DA all Thursday night and Friday morning until I found out.

Am hoping Kimoto (Toda Erika) will be back in some capacity especially after her character in SPEC did almost the entire season one handed!  Since Numata seems to be a villain, I'm hoping Kichise Michiko's character comes back but since she's the lead in Hagane no Onna 2, maybe not.  Not really into the Kimoto replacement or the hacker girl yet at all.

All comic book adaptions.

Black Jack SP - Story about the character's beginning. Compared to stuff like the anime series, it was pretty awful.
Because it was a beginnings story, Young Black Jack's character just didn't have the charm of Black Jack in his older form (which is what we're used to seeing).

Saijou no Meiji - Basic hospital battle with main character wanting to save every patient he meets, against his evil enterprise overlord boss. Not bad, but nothing surprising either.

Another Gantz - Didn't read the comic, or see the 1st movie.
My guess. Made-up character narrating what happened in the 1st movie, so people could watch this instead on tv, and then go watch Perfect Answer.
I think the characters didn't develop enough since the SP focused so much on the action. Just felt it needed more emotional moments for us to attach to them. Which is a shame, cos Nino and MatsuKen can both do great emotional scenes.
Other than that, it's pretty good sci-fi.

Finished up Taisetsu, was a so-so drama, went well for 7 episodes but the last few were a bit of a downer, everything just ended up too perfectly, could/should have been better. :( Unsure of what to start next, have Guilty, Akimahende, Aikurushii and Namida wo Fuite all set to watch, don't know where to start. :?

just finished watching Hotelier (the Japanese version from 2007, Korean version was first ) some very good plot twists, and fine acting from leads Ueto Aya, Tanabe Seiichi, and Oikawa Mitsuhiro. Bae Yong Jun, who starred in the original Korean version, had a special role. Outstanding in support roles were veteran actor  Takenaka Naoto as the bad guy, and lovely Saeko as his lonely daughter.

Meitantei Conan~Kaichyou Densetsu No Nazo SP:
I remember liking the previous live-action SP with Oguri Shun more. Kutsuna Shiori is pretty cute in it (totally too short to be Ran though!)

And starting up this season's dramas (in order of likeability). Only watched a few so far.

Asuko March! ep01 - 02:
Basically Hana-Kimi x Life. It has a nice balance of comedy and serious themes. Nice stuff. :)

Shitsuren Hoken ep 01-04:
One of those weird series that probably won't fit everyone's taste (Fukuda Saki sure has been in a lot of 'em). Average ppl paying the main characters a million yen insurance to successfully fall in love, and paying back 10x that amount if they fail, while the main characters are actually looking into their customers human emotions.

Marumo No Okite ep01-03:
Businessman suddenly taking care of 2 kids. Like "My Girl" with a little less emotional decision calls and a little more slapstick... and a talking dog.

Muscle Girl ep01-02:
Yui Ichikawa trying to protect her father's mini-wrestling organization. Strangely, every scene with the FTIsland guy makes it have a korean-drama feel straight away.

Lately been really lazy.
Only watched a few episodes of Asuko March. Course, catching hanakimi 2011 is a must.

And the 1st ep of Yusha Yoshihiko to Maou no Shiro (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/yoshihiko/), or might be better known as the DraQue drama.
It's cheap, and they don't hide it. :thumbup And I guess non-gamers might not find it funny at all, but I did! Just think net-drama quality. :nervous

Checked out the Yonimo Kimyouna Monogatari SP (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/fujitv/news/pub_2011/110428-080.html), great as always. The story with Anne had a nice twist.
spoiler:  I still can't figure out if it was the husband changing reality with his emails and alternate persona, if he was a stalker waking from his fantasies, or if he himself was a self-conscious illusion that just accidentally tampered with reality. See, cool~~ :P

Two more episodes of Overtime to go, also watching these 2 BeeTV web dramas, that seems to be a growing trend over there airing these kinds of shows, amount of episodes are the same but they're much shorter, only about 10 minutes each, but after they finish airing they combine them to make a 2 hour 'movie'.
This one here is called 40 Onna to 90 Nichi Kan de Kekkon suru Houhou, stars Naoko Iijima. :heart:

I enjoyed Zettai Kareshi as well - it was fun. Saki Aibu and  Mokomichi Hayami, who played Tenjo Knight, worked really well together.

Hayami's role reminded me of Dick Gautier, who played a Robot named Hymie  in the old "Get Smart" series

I have watched the first 8 episodes of タンブリング (Tumbling), the 2010 drama with Yusuke Yamamoto, Koji Seto and a great ensemble cast. Yusuke plays an all around bad boy trouble maker, but then he meets the character played by Azusa Okamoto, who is on the girls' rhythm gymnastics team, and next thing you know, Yusuke is on the boys tumbling team. As I said earlier, it has a great ensemble cast, including Rei Okamoto, who is also on the girls' team. (Why do I mention Rei? Just because she should be cast in every show possible.) The plot has the standard "misfits who make good" theme, but touches on a lot of deeper issues as the show progresses, with a different character highlighting that particular issue (and therefore the actor gets a chance to shine).
Worth a watch!

Stretching that one out left me with some extra time so doing probably my 4th watch of the second season of this. :)

Just started this today, Don Quixote, okay for the first 2 episodes but it's gonna be hard to carry this storyline for 11 episodes. :sweatdrop:

early check from this season (most interested to least again):
Kaseifu no Mita (http://www.ntv.co.jp/kaseifu/index.html) ep01 - Totally agree. It's like GTO x Haken no Hinkaku. :thumbsup NG scenes from this is going to be epic. :lol:
Tsukahara Bokuden (http://www.nhk.or.jp/jidaigeki/bokuden/index.html) ep01-04 - Sengoku drama, about a legendary swordsman challenging people all over japan. Fight scenes remind me of an old kendo anime I watched when I was a kid. :)
Kaito Royale (http://www.tbs.co.jp/kaito_royale/) ep00-01 - Midnight drama, so I don't expect it being popular. But the 1st episode was pretty exciting. And I want to see if Matsuzaka Tori keeps getting better (I thought he was really good-looking in Shinkenger. Reminded me of TVB's 林峯. Just didn't expect him landing so many cool roles so quickly)
Youkai Ningen Bem (http://www.ntv.co.jp/bem/) ep01-02 - Watched the anime. Basically the same thing with more emotional "i want to be human" scenes.

Boku to Star no 99 Nichi (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/99days/index.html) ep01 - Korean star + bodyguard romance comedy. It's pretty funny. If the comedy was done smarter it would've been better (now it's more like, I know what's gonna happen in the next 5 minutes jokes that make you cringe a little).
HUNTER (http://www.ktv.jp/hunter/index.html) ep01 - Interesting theme. Still don't know if I really like it though.

Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/nazotoki/index.html) ep01-02 - Feels like 33pun Tantei with its slapstick mystery (I don't really like this style). I actually fell asleep watching the first episode... :P
Ore no Sora - Keiji Hen (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/orenosora/) ep01 - Richie Rich! Wait, is there a live movie of that yet?
Doctors (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/doctors/) - Just another hospital drama.
Nankyoku Tairiku (http://www.tbs.co.jp/nankyokutairiku) ep01-02 - Fast forwarded it, still felt boring. ;)

Still have Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu and Pandora 3 to watch. Both I'm pretty sure I'll like. :oops:

Has anyone been watching 11 nin mo iru? It's actually quite a good slice of life type drama. It follows a huge poor family and the issues they have to deal with.

Natozoki wa dinner no atode was one that I was really looking forward to this season but I'm actually pretty disappointed in it. The set up is actually kind of dull and slow.

Gonna take a short break on the dramas still airing, hate waiting a week to watch the next episode. :sweatdrop: Don Quixote is turning out to be a good watch, started out slowly but is getting better with each episode, most things that Shota does turn out well. :) Mahiru Konno is an underrated actress, :( enjoying her in DQ a lot, so much looked for a show that she's got a big part in, found one, Moso Shimai/Paranoid Sisters, so good watched the first 4 episodes without moving an inch. :?

Now on to this one, no reason why, knew nothing about it but seems like it'll be a fun watch. :nervous

Just finished last two episodes of 2010 drama "Tumbling" (episodes 10 & 11)....started it a while ago, but for some reason stopped after 9 episodes.
It was a good series about a team of misfits who form a boys high school tumbling team (rhythm gymnastics), with  leads Yusuke Yamamoto and Koji Seto turning in solid performances. Azusa Okamoto and Rei Okamoto were especially luverly in supporting roles, and Exile member Akira shed buckets of manly tears in his role as club advisor.
Some great individual episodes giving each main member of the team a chance to take the dramatic lead, and a stirring conflict towards the end. Theme song is "Manazashi" by a male duo called Honey L Days.

Here is a bloopers clip from the series , with thanks to YouTube poster geloxkie:

Finished up Moso Shimai/Paranoid Sisters, though for the most part it was just average it was a real enjoyable view, if you like quirky and strange ones then this would be right up your alley. It's about 3 sisters who one day find a letter from the dead father to them, he tells them to read some books that he picked out so they can finally know him a bit more, plus the books will hold the clues to his death for they don't know how he died. :O Cast is superb, popular actresses but not real popular, nice to see them all have a huge, starring role in a drama. :)

Yeah, it makes her characters more realistic.
Out of all the actors doing evil characters I've seen, Ayame probably leaves the strongest impression. You just see her evil look, and you know she's gonna steal someone's boyfriend or break a marriage. :lol:
Another classic would be Saki Fukada in Life... aaaand it goes full circle~ :nervous
I probably like her acting these evil characters because they all end up having innocent intentions, making you go all warm and fuzzy "awwww~". :oops:

Looks like she's going back to being the good guy in the next drama, about teenage court:

Yeah Saki Fukuda's character in Life was Ichiban Uber-Bitch. :shocked:

 She reportedly was a bit reluctant to play the character when she read the script, but she concluded that she should just give it her all, and she was fantastic in the part. :twothumbs

Which leads directly to this OPV created by YouTuber hatoriMeg697  dedicated to Saki's character Manami- with Saki's 2005 song 刹那バイバイ (Setsuna Bye Bye / Ephemeral Bye Bye).

Catched up with everything. Zenkai Girl was good, not as crazy good as I thought from guys comments here, but still very fun. :thumbsup

Shitsuren Hoken was ok. Another one of those weird japanese dramas.

The Ranma 1/2 SP was better than expected.
I particularly like how the male/female Ranma actors were able to keep the same feel after changing (you'know, some guys suck at this and just get all girly or classic-yakuza and forget the actual character...).
Course the comic/anime is better. But I think they got pretty close. Too bad it's only one episode.
Ryoga didn't even get to show up! probably got lost in some other TV station. :P

^^ Speaking of Beautiful Life,  ‘Kaseifu no Mita’  had the highest rated episode for any episode since that series, from Oricon:

Matsushima Nanako’s stoic housekeeper role in Nihon Television’s  ’Kaseifu no Mita‘ has been garnering a lot of attention.

The anticipated final episode aired on December 21st, and managed to draw in a whopping figure  of 40% in viewership ratings within the Kanto region. It also received an average of 36.4% in the Kansai region and 34.6% in the Nagoya region, making it the first time in nearly 12 years that a drama has surpassed the 40% mark.

With these ratings, ‘Kaseifu no Mita’ is tied for 3rd as the drama with the highest ratings of all time. The top three dramas in this regard are ‘Tsumikikuzushi Oya to Ko no 200-nichi Senso‘ (TBS 1983) with 45.3%,’Beautiful Life‘ (TBS 2000) with 41.3%, and ‘Netchu Jidai‘ (1979 NihonTV) with 40.0%. ‘Kaseifu no Mita’ has tied with third place, surpassing the TBS drama ‘3 nen B gumi Kinpachi Sensei‘ (39.9%).

According to media research, this is the first time since 2000 that a drama has exceeded the 40% viewership rating. The last time a drama achieved this rating was when TBS aired the final episode of ‘Beautiful Life‘ back in March of 2000.

To get an idea of how far ‘Kaseifu no Mita’ has come, the series began with an average first episode rating of 19.5%. It continued to improve as the series progressed, leading up to the final episode.

Although the final episode received an average of 40%, the final scene gained the highest viewership rating, with 42.8% in the Kanto region, 39.0% in the Kansai region, and 36.7% in the Nagoya region. This was during the final moments of the drama where Mita, played by Matsushima, bids farewell to the family that she served.

As a whole, the drama received an impressive average rating of 25.17%.

Despite being in an era where people are watching less television, the drama turned out to be a blockbuster hit. Nowadays, a drama with 15% or more viewership ratings is considered to a hit, and a drama exceeding 20% is considered to be a huge hit.

Mita solves a tough problem for the younger son in math, and the boy is "oh wow, she's correct" and then the little girl tells the family she can name every member of AKB48, and Mita starts to name them in order........... :lol:

Nice thing about starting a brand new drama, instead of an an older one.....the references are quite contemporary....

Unfair SP (http://ktv.jp/unfair/) - Thought it would be more dark, Kitano Kii's character is way too cute for a cop.

Blizzard (http://pre.beetv.jp/pg/10000296/) - Web drama about 9 snow-climbing teens meeting a blizzard. One is murdered leaving the remaining 8 stuck in an abandoned lodge guessing which one of them is the killer. old-fashioned theme, still fun guessing who did it. :D

^^ The Unfair TV movie was good but not nearly as good as the series, then again most aren't, then again so much better than the first movie. :bleed eyes:
As far as current watches go, up to episode 3 of Gm Odore Doctor, tried to luck out in trying a series I knew nothing about and so far it's been a real good watch, been becoming a Mikako fan as of late, she's too underrated it seems, :O plus it has Shiina Kippei, easily in the top 3-4 actors for the last 15 years. 8)
And doing a rewatch of Tsuhan Man/Shopping Hero, little known one from 2002, there's really nothing special about it, thin storyline and very predicatable but as far as the enjoyability factor goes it gets a ten, really an easy and fun watch, if you don't know who Ayako Kawahara is(wow!)..... :oops:

First- Kaseifu no Mita- wonderful show, cast members were outstanding, and so dramatic at certain points....really would recommend to anyone.....

and now on to........................."Beautiful Life"

Holy Frijoles, Batman!

I have just finished the first episode of "Beautiful Life" thanks to Yoshino san and Winner san's recommendations.....


I am hooked.............Takako Tokiwa is freakin' beautiful.............have never seen her in a drama a before, I recognize her face from CM's or magazine covers, but seeing her in this show has sealed the deal...is there a thread for her? We need to get one going, if there isn't. This woman is all that, and a bag of chips.

The show itself; as I said I am hooked after one episode. I know I have just booked  flight to Sadsville, if I know my dramas, but let's see what happens.....
Yes, and Takuya Kimura can act and I am interested to see where he goes with this character.

Anyway, rather than a clip form "Beautiful Life" (2000), when Takako was about 28 years old, here is Takako on a television show called "CM Girl" from 1992,
when she was 19 years old. Apparently the format of the show, or at least the segment, was to guess which CM the pretty girl had appeared in.......

Okay, finished episode 2 of beatiful life, really nice feel to this show, the writing, the acting, the music.

And speaking of Music, great ending theme song by B'z:

今夜月の見える丘に / Kon'ya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni (At the Hill Where We Can See the Moon Tonight) Released February 9, 2000, it was the 27th single by B'z. Released digitally for dowloading in  2005, the song was declared by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) to be a gold single for being downloaded more than 100,000 times by 2011.

Beautiful Life ranks #1, first season of Hitotsu Yane no Shita though comes in at #1A, should not be missed. :thumbsup

Of the highest rated dramas, which dramas are the most loved?

The online and mobile polling service of goo and NTT DoCoMo recently asked their users to vote for their most favorite dramas out of all those that achieved very high viewer ratings.

Of course this poll was only created because of the incredible success of the recent ‘Kaseifu no Mita‘ (NTV), which recorded the third best single-episode rating of all time for Japanese dramas with its final episode. This means that there have at least been two dramas that gathered more people in front of the TV for a single episode and many more with an overall average above that of ‘Kaseifu no Mita’.

However, some of those dramas reach back as far as 1977 and shouldn’t be that familiar to many of the younger viewers. This brings us back to the poll question, “What is your most favorite of the highest rated dramas on TV?”

The users of goo and NTT DoCoMo cast their votes in the following way:


01 – 7,210 votes – ‘Kaseifu no Mita‘ (Highest: 40.0% / Avg: 24.8%)
02 – 5,834 votes – ‘Long Vacation‘ (Highest: 36.7% / Avg: 29.6%)
03 – 3,700 votes – ‘HERO‘ (Highest: 36.8% / Avg: 34.2%)
04 – 3,243 votes – ‘San-nen B-gumi Kinpachi-sensei‘ (Highest: 39.9%)
05 – 2,927 votes – ‘Beautiful Life‘ (Highest: 41.3% / Avg: 32.3%)
06 – 2,269 votes – ‘The 101st Proposal‘ (Highest: 36.7% / Avg: 23.6%)
07 – 2,190 votes – ‘Hitotsu Yane no Shita‘ (Highest: 37.8% / Avg: 28.1%)
08 – 2,090 votes – ‘GOOD LUCK!!‘ (Highest: 37.6% / Avg: 30.6%)
09 – 1,215 votes – ‘Ie Naki Ko‘ (Highest: 37.2% / Avg: 24.7%)
10 – 1,037 votes – ‘Danjo Shichinin Aki Monogatari‘ (Highest: 36.6% / Avg: 30.0%)
11 – 975 votes – ‘Necchuu Jidai‘ (Highest: 46.7%)
12 – 827 votes – ‘Wataru Seken wa Oni Bakari‘ (Highest: 34.2%)
13 – 814 votes – ‘Zutto Anata ga Suki Datta‘ (Highest: 34.1% / Avg: 19.9%)
14 – 795 votes – ‘Tsumiki Tsuboshi ~Oya to Ko no 200 Nichi Sensou~‘ (Highest: 45.3%)
15 – 682 votes – ‘Oshin‘ (Highest: 62.9% / Avg: 52.6%) * Highest ever recorded drama rating on TV!
16 – 581 votes – ‘Hitotsu Yane no Shita 2‘ (Highest: 34.1% / Avg: 26.7%)
17 – 502 votes – ‘Dare ni mo Ienai‘ (Highest: 33.7% / Avg: 23.8%)
18 – 233 votes – ‘Akai Gekiryuu‘ (Highest: 37.2%)

Do you agree with the results?

Yoshino san, great list.....will have to see what is available with subtitles....

Watched episode three of Beautiful Life, some great moments. Some of the side characters are beginning to be developed,  including Kyoko's friend Sachie, played by always lovely Miki Mizuno. Even the ex-girlfriend Mayumi Ozawa, as played by Chiaki Hara, athough not an entirely sympathetic character, is showing her vulnerable side.

But one character, that of conniving hair dresser rival  Satoru Kawamura, as played by Takanori Nishikawa, is showing no signs of redemtion yet.
Nishikawa, better  known as TM Revolution or TMR to his music fans, at 41, is still going strong, as are his contemporaries in the cast (Takuya Kimura, Takako Tokiwa, Miki Mizuno, etc)

Here he is interviewed by AKB48's Minami Takahashi, although he seems to be in control of the interview, and Takamina's laughter.....

Episode 4 of "Beautiful Life" completed, and the show keeps going at a great pace. In a previous post, we saw Takako when she was 19 years old on "CM Girl".... Well, how about Miki Mizumoto at 17? (and Yoshino san, someone else pretty famous is standing next to Miki, wearing a white top and grey skirt....I won't give you anymore clues, because that would be 'Unfair')

Finished up GM Odore Doctor, hadn't expected too much going in, really had wanted to just watch another Mikako drama, she did well and so didn't the rest of the cast, ended up an enjoyable watch, sometimes that's just good enough. Also one episode left on the rewatch of Tsuhan Man/Shopping Hero, also a fun watch, checked the ratings and can't believe how low they were, I must be the only one who liked it. :sweatdrop:
Next is this, shocked that it was easy to find plus it's subbed. :shocked

Episode 4 of Yuusha Yoshihiko to Maou no Shiro, gotta admit it's really silly and inane but it hasn't been that bad of a watch, so far enjoyable and those are the kind of dramas I've been looking for as of late so I guess you could say it's been a winner. :shocked Really wanted to watch a series with Kinami :wub: plus Yamada is in this, always been a solid actor, surprised he would do a show like this, thought he was so much more popular than being in a drama like this, not that it's bad just figured he would be in a much bigger one.

New season's dramas. Funny, I already fouled out half before even watching... they just looked boring...
Maybe wait till one of you guys check those out out and give a positive remark on 'em. :)

Same as always. Most interested down:
Suugaku Joushi-gakuen (http://www.ntv.co.jp/sj/) ep01 - Momusu doing a drama! that's actually not totally boring!! has all H!P members!!?! Pretty fun so far. Sine Cosine Mentaiko! XD
Strawberry Night (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/strawberrynight/) SP-Ep01 - Its easily got one of the best cast in this bunch. Kinda like Zettai Reido with more laughs.
Tairano Kiyomori (http://www.nhk.or.jp/kiyomori/) Ep01-02 - Next taiga drama. Bastard son turned to last warrior clan leader, and later general. Never heard of him, so it'll be another good history lesson.
Saba-dol (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/sabadol/) ep01 - Its got Mayuyu in it!

Hungry! (http://www.ktv.jp/hungry/) Ep01 -  French restaurant in a warehouse playing rock. Classic jdrama style. Pretty good.
Teen Court (http://www.ntv.co.jp/teen/) Ep01 - To check out Gouriki Ayame and her cute smile. Weird that it's a court drama, yet she's doing detective work... :P
Lucky 7 (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/lucky-seven/) Ep01 - First episode was pretty good, surprisingly lotsa brawling action in the end.
13 Sai No Hello Work Ep01 (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/13sai/) - Guy time-travelling back 22 years and changing his life. Lots of funny stuff.
Saikou no Jinsei No Owarikata (http://www.tbs.co.jp/saikou-no-jinsei/) Ep01 - Stuff with Yama-p are normally pretty solid. I also find them kinda boring by the end though. At least there's Acchan in it.
Hayami-san to Yobareru Hi (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/hayamisan/) Ep01 - Marrying into a broken family with a bunch of guys. Kinda interesting theme.
Dirty Mama! (http://www.ntv.co.jp/dirtymama/) Ep01 - Mother cop and newbie. Pretty funny so far.
Honjitsu wa Taian Nari (http://www.nhk.or.jp/drama/taian/) Ep01 - Might turn out fun. But it has too much going on at the same time.

Don't Shoot!! Idol Insiders (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/audition/) Ep01 - Showing the "backstage story" of gravure idols. Fake, sad, dunno what they are trying to achieve by making Kawamura Yukie cry. :smhid
Risou No Musuko (http://www.ntv.co.jp/perfectson/) ep01 - Not really interested in Hey! Say! Jump! or the mother/son comedy. probably won't catch the rest of it.

^^ Few of those are on my list just waiting for a few more episodes. Yuusha ended up being an okay watch, nothing great but think it's worth a watch, wacky like Arakawa but so much more enjoyable, better storyline and all the word plays were good.
Now on Q10 aka Kyuuto, like Zettai Kareshi the main character is a robot, :O too early to tell but seems like it'll be somewhat okay. :?

Ohisama - 78 episodes of 156. I haven't finished it yet but it's already one of my favorites. Because of Ohisama, I started doing research about my own past. That's why it's even more interesting.
Bara Iro no Seisen - 3 episodes. Still waiting for the rest to be subbed. Didn't like it at first but the 3rd ep. changed my mind a bit.
Deka Kurokawa Suzuki - 6 episodes. Pretty interesting but sometimes it's illogical.
Lucky 7 - It would be better if Matsumoto wouldn't be the one doing the main role.
Honjitsu wa Taian Nari - 6 episodes. It's funny and suspensive. Waiting for the rest episdes.
Dirty Mama! - 4 episodes. Not bad but Karina could do better.
Strawberry Night - Still watching  but it's really the best drama I've seen so far (of course, alongside LG).
Time Between Dog and Wolf - 2 episodes. It could be better. Too much shooting and persecuting.

Up to episode 6 of Romes, no real winner but enjoying it, stories are solid and it's got a real fast pace to it. :yawn:
Also just started this one, finished the first 5 episodes, had to stop as the TV keeps overheating when you know pair is on the screen together. :?

Honjitsu wa Taian Nari - 8 episodes. Well, it's coming to the end. All I hope is that the last two episodes aren't going to ruin such an interesting drama.
Dirty Mama! - 5 episodes. The 5th episode was really funny and one of the best of all episodes so far.
Strawberry Night - 9 episodes. Not much till the end. I wish it was longer. It's my favorite not just of this season but of all time.

Finished Atami no Sousakan which is highly recommended, :yep: an 8 episode drama where are pair solve one case which shocked me, figured they'd be doing a few cases but didn't turn out that way, last 2 episodes were really something, hard to beat Odagiri in the acting field. :O
Not sure of what's next, have a whole bunch to watch, leaning towards these two.

Watched Ganges Gawa de Butterfly that starred Masami, it was set in India, nothing special but it was actually enjoyable and funny at times, it was sadly just a 2 episode special. :(
Looked for an obscure one and found a real winner, Shinya Shokudo, :thumbsup zipped thru the first 5 episodes and hopefully will finish it tonight it's neen that good, quickie synopsis from Tokyograph:
Set in a small restaurant in the corner of a shopping district, the unusual eatery is only open after midnight, and its standard menu consists of just a single choice. However, the customers still come for the amusing chatter and the proprietor's willingness to cook any dish that they request. This drama depicts the lives of the restaurant's patrons, including a yakuza, an unsuccessful actor, a group of office ladies, a newspaper delivery boy, and a stripper.

Shinya Shokudo was certainly one of the better dramas I've seen, :yep: quite a few noted guest stars appeared, especailly Odagiri who made many cameos throughout as some mysterious character.
Luckily there's a season 2(!), :O just started it, viewed the first 3 episodes, bit darker and more serious than the first season but it's also a real winner.

Finished up season 2 of Shinya Shokudo, was easy to zip thru it as they're only 25 minutes an episode, wasn't quite as good as the first season but still was a solid watch, still much better than most dramas around.
Next up will be a double shot, haven't seen enough Karina/Yuriko shows so hoping this will be good, :yawn: but really been looking forward to the second one, just finished it's season last week, think it's going to be a winner. 8)

Finished those 2 dramas, top one was Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu, what a disappointment, quite boring, mostly unlikable characters, really nothing good to say about it. :twisted:
On the other hand the second one Saigo kara Nibanme no Koi was an absolute joy, best drama I've seen since SPEC in the fall of 2010. :shocked: Won't appeal to everyone, high quality show that's funny, fast paced and smart, get's a very, very high recommendation from this baka. :thumbsup

Now on to this pair, this one is a bit silly and over the top but so much that it's been an okay watch, though not the same reminds me a bit of Otomen. :?

Taking my time with Bunshin as it's only 5 episodes :sweatdrop: so just started this one tonight.

Current season seems so much more promising than the winter season, only a handful worth watching from then. :sweatdrop: Still on Zenkai Girl and about to start into this drama, watched the movie tonight which was followed by the series, usually works the other way around. :huhuh

The 3 episodes of Blackboard were really good. Check it out if you have the chance.

Usual new season dramas list (from most interested down)

Mirai Nikki Another World (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/mirai-nikki/) - Not out yet. But I loved the anime, and it's got Gouriki. Easily the one I'm most anticipating.
Legal High (http://wwwz.fujitv.co.jp/legal-high) ep01 - Cute Gakky. :inlove: Lotsa funny stuff.
Taburakashi Daikoujyoyuugyou Maki (http://www.ytv.co.jp/taburakashi/index.html) ep01-02 - Probably the most interesting theme of this bunch. Renting a person.
Mikeneko Homuzu no Suiri (http://www.ntv.co.jp/mikeneko) ep01 - Cute Aiba. :roll: More classic detective drama. I like this type more than ATARU and Kagi.
Toshi Densetu no Onna ep01 - Another detective drama. Quirky city myths make it pretty interesting too.
ATARU (http://www.tbs.co.jp/ATARU/) ep01 - Rainman turned detective. Has it's laughing spots. Alright so far.

Kurohyo 2 (http://kurohyo2tv.jp/) ep01 - Cuts all the drama, goes straight to the fighting storyline. Pace is pretty fast, hope the rest of the show is the same.
Kagi no Kakatta Heya (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/kagi/) ep01 - Info overload. Slows down the show. Otherwise it's ok. Erika Toda saves it.
Kaeru no Oujo Sama (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/princessofthefrog/) ep01 - A jdrama about music is kinda rare. Not really interested in it yet.

EAsROCK (http://ch.nicovideo.jp/channel/easrock) ep01 - Weird sentai drama. Too short, dunno if like or not.
37-sai de Isha ni Natta Boku ~Kenshui Junjo Monogatari~ (http://www.ktv.jp/37doctor/) ep01 - Another hospital drama. Nothing special.
Taira no Kiyomori (http://www9.nhk.or.jp/kiyomori/) ep01-14 - Getting kinda boring. Probably one of the weaker recent Taiga dramas.

Kodomo Keisatsu (http://www.mbs.jp/kodomopolice/) ep01 - Zero interest whatsoever.

^^ Another World is out at DA, unsubbed, watched most of it and looks to be a real promising drama but I'm one who has to rely too much on subs. :sweatdrop: Just finished up Bunshin tonight, while quite good think more than 5 episodes would have been better, still was a solid watch. Also watching Toshi Densetu no Onna, first episode was really interesting and offbeat, next 2 episodes look promising too. :) Kagi no Kakatta Heya was solid but yeah about that info overload, reminded me a bit of Liar Game which at times over did it with all that info, still thought it was a solid first episoe though.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Yoshino on April 25, 2012, 02:07:10 AM
Zenkai Girl, up to episode 7, been okay but these middle episodes have dragged a bit, too much filler, :sweatdrop: think it's one of the shows that would have benefited from being 9 episodes instead of 11.
Second episode of Toshi Densetsu no Onna was top notch, :thumbsup think they've got something working well with this drama, not up to the par of the Trick series but giving off the same sort of vibes as it did, hope it continues.
Another World was the best new one so far, action and suspense filled, wondering where the storyline is going to go, episode one ended off with this, almost under the impression it could be like a Liar Game/Battle Royale type of show. :panic:
(http://i1083.photobucket.com/albums/j388/hiyama77/Dramas%203/vlcsnap-00005-8.jpg)

Nice choices. The 2nd episode of Kagi was much better. More simple to understand making it more fun.

Some of the dramas I skipped in the previous list.
Clover (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/clover/) ep01-02 - Really liking this one. Yanki story with some laughs. Reminds me of Drop. :)
Papadol (http://www.tbs.co.jp/PAPADOL2012/) ep01 - Nishikido Ryo falling in love with an older convenience store girl (Yuka). It's OK. I'd place it under Kagi.
Cleopatra na Onnatachi (http://www.ntv.co.jp/cleo/) ep01 - Feels like a long commercial for plastic surgery. Not really interested. Waste of the cast.

Also, the Yonimo Kimyona Monogatari Spring SP was great as always. Some say their twists aren't as surprising anymore. I guess this time it was pretty easy to guess what the twists were. We have seen this show for 20+ years already, pretty hard to catch people of guard now.
Kutsuna Shiori's mini-story was darn cute. :oops:

Mirai Nikki Another World ep01 - kinda like Liar Game.  I'm hooked.  That kiss!   :wub:

Sleep tightly :cathappy:.... Another World is great, can't wait for the second episode, have Legal High just haven't started it yet. Kagi no Kakatta Heya watched the first 2 episodes, been okay though a bit confusing at times, also the first 2 episodes of Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite, been better than expected, maybe because it's only 6 episodes so no time for any filler which is what dragged down Zenkai Girl a bit, on episode 9 of it, just a so-so watch, the cast has been fine just the storyline has been too simple and predictable. :(
Think I may start this later on, don't know much about it but those are the kind of shows that appeal to me. :huhuh

I started watching 3 new dramas. And that would be:

1. Kagi no Kakatta Heya -  a very interesting, my type of drama which is really mysterious. It reminds me of Liar Game but that's because of Matsuyama Hiroaki and Toda Erika, probably. And I really like... no, I love those explanations about locks :D Enomoto is one interesting character. So as Aoto is :)
2. ATARU - this one might be even better. Both dramas have similarities though (main character's unsociable and always rubs his fingers while thinking, lead actress is detective/lawyer who's really honest and optimistic and has a not so energetic boss). But ATARU's character is autistic which is really interesting for me. Also, I like Kuriyama's character Ebina Maiko.
3. Toshi Densetsu no Onna - well, this one's a kind of unique drama. I like the fact that you can hear many Japanese urban legends here and Masami's doing pretty good in this drama, too.

I might start watching Ume-chan Sensei too but I'll better wait for all episodes to be subbed because I don't want to end up watching all those 156 episodes raw...

^then you must have enjoyed Zenkai Girl  XD

Checking wiki on what I've watched, he should win some awards or something with all the great stuff he's been in. :panic:
1 Litre no Namida, Attention Please, Last Friends, Ryusei no Kizuna, Orthros no Inu, Joker - Yurusarezaru Sosakan, Zenkai Girl

Watched Mirai Kikki ep02, it's pretty safe to say now the storyline is totally different from the anime/manga with only the basic theme. So nobody knows how this'll end up.
Dunno if differences like everyone having the basic "see your own future" diary, except Yuno (they all had different types of diaries in the other version) and less contestants will make it less interesting, most of the players have shown up already.
On the other hand, it would've been impossible to do the same scale as the anime/manga. Having an original storyline might be just as interesting.

Really enjoyed W no Higeki's ep01. Great pacing, interesting theme. And it'll be a challenge on Takei Emi's acting. Can already see how it'll be like Pandora and keep building up tension.
I'm putting it on top of my list. :D
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?

Finally finished Zenkai Girl, not the best show any of the cast has been in, they all seemed to do fine but whoever wrote it didn't miss one cliche' that's been repeated a hundred times before. :doh:
Watched the current episode of Toshi Densetsu no Onna, it's up to it's third and surprisingly is getting better as it goes on, certainly don't need to use your brain cells like you do in Kagi no Kakatta Heya but it's been an enjoyable,fun and interesting watch so far. 8)
Also started on Doctors, first 2 episodes of it, hard to say how it's been, it's far from a classic but moves along at a nice pace and is compelling enough, sort of reminds me of NS. Aoi but with a doctor instead.

Post by: Yoshino on May 04, 2012, 07:18:15 AM
Too many dramas, not even time, sigh. :sweatdrop: Up to episode 4 of Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite, still okay and what is going to help it is that it's only 6 episodes, would have been harder to stretch out the story to 10+ episodes. Needed to start another one, never heard of this until today, looked good so started on it and was actually a really good first episode, looks like I may have lucked out with this, also kind of reminds me a bit of Ruri no Shima but don't think it'll be the tearjerker that one was. :huhuh

Finished Doctors which turned out to be a much better show than I imagined it would be, only 8 episodes so no time for any filler, somewhat solid stories and the pace of the show was quite good, would recommend it. :shocked Also up to episode 4 of both Toshi Densetsu no Onna and Kagi no Kakatta Heya which has been really good but Toshi has been superb so far and gets better with every episode. :shocked:
Just started tonight, good start to it, think it's going to be a winner. :O

Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite is now complete, while nothing earth shattering it was an enjoyable drama and even though the main plot was someone coming back from the future they did it in a way which made it believable. :huhuh Also up to episode 4 of Hammer Session, been okay but was expecting more but it's still got a ways to go.
Just started this tonight, put it off for a long time, thought the storyline wouldn't suit my tastes but first episode was fairly good.

Finished watching Beautiful Life, and what can I say....beautifully written drama, fine acting & direction. High viewing numbers when it aired in January to March 2000, and the popularity was well justified.

If you have not watched, please give it a try.
 
Great performances by the two leads, Takako Tokiwa and Takuya Kimura. Wonderful in support roles were Atsuro Watabe, Miki Mizuno, Akemi Omori, Kenzo Kawarazki, Hirokyuki Ikeuchi, Takanori Nishikawa (AKA T.M. Revolution), and in a guest appearance, Koyuki had a brief, but memorable role.

Kimutaku has been in several series that I really enjoyed: Beautiful Life, Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi (AKA One Million Stars Falling from the Sky / The Smile Has Left Your Eyes), Hero, Mr. Brain. I want to check out Long Vacation.


I have already posted the B'z song used in the drama, but 今夜月の見える丘に  / Kon'ya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni (Tonight View of the Moon From the Hill or sumpin' like that) is a fine song, in a class to match the drama.....

There are so many police and mystery dramas this season!

W no Higeki is too heartbreaking to continue.
Legal High seemed frustrating but reading all the comments here, I think I'm going to watch a few more episodes!
Papadol is getting better and I definitely need to check out Zenkai Girl.
Bakaleya and Ataru are my weekend highlights :)

I wonder if Yoshino ever finished IS? It wasn't my usual type of drama but I loved how it covered so many untouched and taboo issues.

Not yet, up to episode 7, problem has been it's not an easy drama to get, really not as popular as I thought it would/should be, :sweatdrop: have to say it's much more enjoyable than you would think considering the subject matter.
Hammer Session, episode 8, going along okay just taking my time with it but it's gotten a tad better, watched it mainly for Manami but have to admit Mirai has been the star so far.
Was thinking of making this the next watch, anyone else seen it? :huhuh

Yeah, I think the synopsis would put a lot of people off, especially people who aren't so open-minded. I don't know how accurately it portrays the feelings of people who are IS, but it does a good job of showing you how their life is changed because of it. I really wish more people watched it! Much better than the generic love story.

And I know I'm super late, but I finally got around to watching Mr. Brain, and it was amazing! There were crazy guest stars in every episode and even though it was a police/mystery drama, it had this creepy and suspenseful feel that made every episode so exciting! One of the best dramas I've seen in a long while!

Don't know when/if I'll ever get to finish IS, been a week and can't get the last few episodes, not a popular one it seems. :( Meanwhile though up to episode 8 of both Toshi Densetsu no Onna and Kagi no Kakatta Heya which are getting better and better every week, the latter one is going to go out with a bang with Sho Aikawa as a guest star for episode 9 then for the last 2 episodes it's going to be a 2-parter with an extra long finale and Hiroshi Tamaki will be the guest star for that. :O
Was going to start on Renai Neet but the whole thing isn't subbed yet so will wait a bit before it get's started, need a new one then and think it'll be this, don't know much about it but looks interesting, hoping to start it tomorrow.

Wrapped up Hammer Session!, second half was better than the first and of course it was building up to a very climatic conclusion which naturally happened but it's worth a watch. Finally got another episode of IS, don't know how much longer it'll take to get the others. :sweatdrop: Pending on watching episode 9 of Toshi Densetsu no Onna, it's the final one which is a shame because it truly was such an enjoyable series, :yep: no extra long episode to end off either.
Just started on Innocent Love, through 2 episodes and no opinion yet, really doesn't have a plot/storyline going so far though it seems okay. Also about to start this, trying another one I had never heard of and this one sounded quite interesting.

Haven't started it yet, episode one is the only one I've gotten so we'll see, couldn't hurt to check out the first episode though. :huhuh
Finished up Toshi Densetsu no Onna, real shame that it ended because it really was such an enjoyable series.... funny, interesting, good cases to solve and of course it had Masami. :oops: Did real well in the ratings too, think for that time slot of 11:00pm it had the highest ratings since Liar Game a few years back.
Another World and W no Higeki are on the agenda, once they finish their run gonna start back on them, both saw the first episodes of each and both had much potential.
This is the one actually up next if I can get a few more episodes, want to watch the whole series back to back to..... Hayami-san to Yobareru Hi, stars Nao who is so good, 8) try to watch all her shows though they're not the easiest to get. :(

^Hayami talks about a lot of serious family problems. Really interesting how they handle it. :)

One series I liked but haven't talked about this season is Mou Ichido Kimi ni Propose.
It's the good old korean drama theme where the girl gets amnesia but only forgets the guy. So the guy tries to mend things up.

of course, opinons vary, but I would actually highly recommend 逃亡弁護士 Tobo Bengoshi  The Fujitive Lawyer

I thought Yusuke did a very credible job, and the plots of the various stories of injustice were gripping at times.....and Satomi Ishihara was good in a supporting role, and lots of good performances by guest stars....

^^ Was going to start that but all of a sudden in a whimsical mood was curious about Gegege no Nyobo, which was the 82nd NHK Asadora from 2010. All I have to say is that I'm completely hooked, :oops: thought I'd watch 2 episodes to start off, watched the first 12 and can't get the others, 156 in all, fast enough! :panic:

Kagi no Kakatta Heya has finished it's run, it was an okay drama, started a tad slow, actually started off too confusing for the first 2 episodes but got out of doing that and ended up a decent watch, preferred Masami's Toshi drama from the Spring season but highly recommend this one. :)
Also up to week 7 of Gegege no Nyobo, really one of the best things I've ever seen but as far as making thru all 26 weeks, that's going to be real tough, :bleed eyes: may take a break as not to get sick of it. Up to episode 8 of IS, still haven't got all the episodes, waiting for the final one, think it'll be snowing when I finally get it. :yawn:
Want to start Another World back up but only 9 of the 12 episodes have been subbed, gonna wait for the entire thing to be finished, been burned before on starting dramas that the subbing never gets finished so looking for another unknown one settled on this, going in cold but looks promising with a good cast but another drama that may be hard to get, took a loooong time to get the first episode. :sweatdrop:

Update. Adding a few more. Better to put them all in one post. Still 3-4 that haven't aired yet and look pretty nice.
Another quick check on what's on.

Haven't found any sure hooks, like Legal High last season. Mostly average stuff so far. Again most interested down:

{update} VISION Koroshi ga Mieru Onna (http://www.ytv.co.jp/vision) ep01 - Woman able to see weird visions, like dead people, to help a police guy solve cases. Unlike the ones below, it's a little darker. Some scenes play out like horror film scenes. Probably why it airs on at midnights~ :D Pretty good so far.

Boys On The Run (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/boys) ep01 - Loser virgin guy hoping to date his colleague. Does have a few laughs from the dirty jokes. Too bad Akina with her dyed short hair doesn't turn me on... :banghead:

Rich Man Poor Woman (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/richman-poorwoman) ep01 - classic jdrama office pair battle/romance. nice.

Sprout (http://www.ntv.co.jp/sprout) ep01 - Three teenagers temporarily living with the main girl character's family.
Teen-romance. Dunno any of the cast, including the Johnnys boys. So it might be a nice look at the newer talent.

Omoni Naitemasu (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/omoninaitemasu) ep01 - Probably weirdest one of the bunch. A girl that's "too beautiful" that it creates problems in her everyday life. And needs to wear funny cosplay/masks to stop every man that sees her from turning into a stalker.

Higashino Keigo Mysteries (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/higashino-keigo) ep01 - First one was pretty good. Hope the stories stay on the same quality.

GTO (http://www.ktv.jp/gto) ep01 - Same as before, so nothing special. Should still be an ok watch.

{update} Naniwa Shonen Tanteidan (http://www.tbs.co.jp/naniwashounen) ep01-02 - Girl teacher solving crimes with her students. It's ok. I'm actually enjoying mostly from all the Kansai-ben. :)

Tokubetsu Kokuzei Choushukan (http://www.ntv.co.jp/tokkan) ep01 - Tax collector girl. Pretty average stuff.

Ghost Mama Sousasen (http://www.ntv.co.jp/ghostmama) ep01 - Ghost mother solving cases with the help of her kid, the only person that can see her. Family drama that's a little too kiddy for my taste.

Watched Ghost Mama also, kinda liked it. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip05375.jpg)

Finally finished IS, that was an okay watch, nothing all that great but was a solid show, much better than I expected.
Doing a rewatch of this, though a strong cast first time around thought it was only so-so, up to episode 4 and that opinion hasn't changed. :O

マーセッション!  (HAMMER SESSION) with Mirai Shida, Mokomichi Hayami, and Manami Higa.....up to episode three. Enjoyable, nothing groundbreaking, but the three leads all are enjoyable, watchable, and fun. After "Beautiful Life" was in a mood for something lighter, and this fits the ticket perfectly. Famous child gravure model (now grown up) Saaya does well in a supporting role, and Rina Aizawa is in the credits (although I am not sure what part Rina plays)

As usual with Japanese Television, some great music....check out SPYAIR in this Karaoke version of LIAR, don't just tap your feet, SING!!! (Cast members Mokomichi Hayami, Saaya, and Emiri Miyasaka appear in this MV)

Finished episode 4 of Hammer Session....going to upgrade this serious series   from enjoyable to seriously good and still a very enjoyable series.
Manami got her first real chance to show her acting chops in this episode, and the various cast members who play school mates of Mirai's characters character have actually been quite good.

As somewhat common in Japanese series, each episode will focus on one cast as having the main conflict, while the seeds of future episodes are being planted. Episode 4 featured lovely Rina Aizawa in a very serious predicament. Episode 2 featured beatiful Yuko Takayama, a young and talented actress with great potential. Episode 3 included  young Toshi Takeyumi and pretty Kyoko Hinami as a pair of fate crossed young lovers......

Anyway, the series is moving along just fine, and three main leads, Mirai, Mokomich Mokomichi, and Manami are all doing a great job.  Editor's note: tried to clean up all the mistakes!

GTO.

A lot of people were skeptical about this remake, but it has actually turned out pretty well. The execution of the individual story arcs is a lot closer to the original manga, and I think AKIRA is (so far) a much more convincing gangster-turned-teacher than Sorimachi Takashi was.

Yeah, ep02 was pretty good. And the student cast are pretty likeable. I'd probably put it in my top 3 now.
Checking out ep03, heard this time the plot's about the bump.y girl. Wonder if Idoling!!!'s Miyake is gonna get some more screen time in it too. I pretty much didn't notice her at all in the first 2 episodes, and it's pretty hard not to notice a girl like her! XD

Triangle is a great watch, and there is a lot of uncertainty that adds to the drama.

Okay, another interesting drama that is worth watching is
空から降る一億の星  / Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi (A Million Stars Falling From the Sky) {2002}
with Takuya Kimura, Sanma Akashiya, and Eri Fukatsu. Expect the unexpected.

I really want to finish them so I can start watching other stuff, but I haven't been watching much since last spring so got some catching up to do. Right now I'm looking forward to the Great Teacher Onizuka remake aswell as Kuro no Onna Kyoushi. Does anyone know if the latter one is any good?

I've only watched ~5 episodes of Kuro no Onna, Nothing too special. I'm probably gonna skip it.

Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Yoshino on October 05, 2012, 05:41:58 AM
Some recent watches, last quarter was not a good one for dramas. :sweatdrop:

Kuro no Onna, just so disappointing, had such potential to be among the year's best and just fell flat on it's face, only recommendation is to skip it.

(http://i606.photobucket.com/albums/tt143/hitomi7/Covers%202/Ghost_Mama_Sousasen-p1.jpg)

Like YKT said above Ghost Mama^ was not a good series, started out somewhat okay but after that was just a poor series, thing I disliked about the most was how boring it was, only good positive about this drama is that it'll cure insomnia, while that was bad this other Yukie show was.....

.... absolutey fantastic, don't know why it took me so long to watch it, it's from 2009 so no excuses will suffice but this was such an entertaining, interesting, fast paced and somewhat mysterious show, Untouchable is highly, highly recommended.

(http://i606.photobucket.com/albums/tt143/hitomi7/Covers%202/meii.jpg)

Above one is Saijou no Meii from 2011, it seemed to be really good but watched it unsubbed, was easy enough to still follow but really can't give an accurate rating for it but it was an enjoyable watch regardless.

Was surprised this turned out to be a solid watch, figured all the fighting would drag it down, that happened in Be Bop High School and it really hurt that series, liked this one so much gonna watch the second season real soon.
(http://i606.photobucket.com/albums/tt143/hitomi7/Covers%202/Majisuka_Gakuen.jpg)
(http://i606.photobucket.com/albums/tt143/hitomi7/Covers%202/CONTROL.jpg)

Just did a rewatch of Control^, nothing really special about the drama but just one of the show that is such a fun watch, if you like either one of the stars then you really need to see it, even if you're not a fan probably a show which you'd like.

Now currently on the show, Reinoryokusha Odagiri Kyoko no Uso, up to episode 5 and it's been an okay watch so far but just seems as though it should be better, bit too predictable at times and not enough suspense but still has been good enough, Satomi's dramas are like Yukie's, she does a good job in them but too many times the dramas themselves are not all that good, will be giving Rich Man a watch in the near future.

And about to give the above one a watch, Watashi to Kare to Oshaberi Kuruma, was only 2 episodes and aired the last two Saturdays.

Kuro no Onna, just so disappointing, had such potential to be among the year's best and just fell flat on it's face, only recommendation is to skip it.

I thought it was pretty good. Not a masterpiece by and means and it did drop in quality from like episode 3 onwards but I enjoyed how over the top it was. The best thing about it was the cast though. It might be "blasphemy" to say this, but personally I enjoyed it more than Gokusen (which is a similar drama in terms of layout). But ultimately shows that are very episodic tend to not be my cup of tea. Because episodes tend to feel pretty filler-ish. But I guess I can see why one wouldn't like this.


Re-watching the first season of Liar Game while waiting for English Subs for the new movie (Liar Game reborn).

They released subs recently and I watched Liar Game Reborn. For some reason I think this franchise works best as a 40min episode show. When it is in movie form they drag on the same game for about 2hours and there is so many betrayals and lies every 10 minutes. For me it's a bit too much. But still the movie was enjoyable enough and even though Erika Toda is one of my favorite actresses, I liked that she wasn't in this. Her story is pretty much done and it made things abit more fresh with that new girl who I liked. She did a good job and even though she played a similar role there was enough to differentiate her from Kanzaki Nao.

Watashi to Kare to Oshaberi Kuruma was bearable, good it was only two episodes, plot was a car's Navi system which was 'alive', :panic: bit hard to believe but Nanami was quite the character.

FYI: Both Tokyo Zenryoku Shoujo and Tokyo Airport are being subbed, watched the first which was an enjoyable view, haven't seen the latter one yet but will, planning on watching the first 2 episodes together of that one.
Meanwhile started on this one, started off with a real solid show and looks like it's going to be a winner and surprisingly it's subbed, least episode one is.

New season, another top-down. :)

Yuusha Yoshihiko to Akuryo no Kagi (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/yoshihiko2/) ep01-02 - More of the same awesome. :D

MONSTERS (http://www.tbs.co.jp/MONSTERS/) ep01 - Newbie cop tasked to partner with a troublemaker that everyone hates, while looking for evidence to kick him out of the force. Nice fast pacing even for a long-SP 1st episode. And for a cop/mystery drama, its awfully funny.

Tokyo Zenryoku Shoujo (http://www.ntv.co.jp/tokyo/) ep01 - Country girl going to Tokyo to find her dad. Lotsa funny scenes. Probably a lot more great dad vs daughter laughs in the coming episodes.

Koukou Nyushi (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/kokonyushi/) ep01-02 - Students(?) planning to cause trouble at a high school entrance exam. Nice cast. And the realism is kinda scary.

Hao Hao! Jiang Shi Girl (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/kyonc/) ep01 - Kawashima Umika. Idol by day. Vampire Hunter by night. LOL. Cannot not keep watching this. XD

Kekkon Shinai (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/kekkon_shinai/) ep01 - A few stories of singles and how the subject of marriage affects their lives. Pretty interesting.

Akumu Chan (http://www.ntv.co.jp/akumu/) ep01 - Teacher helping a little girl who can see people's nightmares that turn into reality. It's actually pretty good, reminds me of Keiko's previous Mop Girl.

Perfect Blue (http://www.tbs.co.jp/perfect-blue/) ep01 - Detective Agency girl getting caught in murder cases. The story is alright, but the supporting cast is pretty weak. Which really hurts for shows like this.

Doctor-X (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/doctor-x/) ep01 - Another hospital drama. With Yonekura Ryoko doing her girl-power thing again. It's ok.

Tokyo Airport (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/tokyo-airport/) ep01 - New girl starting work at the airport's control tower. Nothing too special.

Ooku~Tanjou~ (http://www.tbs.co.jp/ohoku2012/) ep01-02 - Disease causing males to die, having a girl as the shogun and guys as... her guys. Very boring stuff. :banghead:

There aren't many shows I'm interested in watching this season unfortunetly. The few ones are these...

~ Kurashina Kana plays a newlywed wife or something.
~ Yankee school fighting, might be fun, who knows
~ Naka Riisa heads to some heart shaped island and creates a maternity hospital

But none of these shows are getting subbed as far as I know, at least for now. Even if they did it's nothing that really is like "OMGZ I MUST SEE THIS NAOZ!". Some shows I do feel like that about though are Clover and Sengoku Basara - Moonlight Party - From this summer, but they aren't getting subs atm either.


Still, I've got alot of old shows to catch up on and currently I'm watching Higashino Keigo Mysteries and Yuusha Yoshihiko to Maou no Shiro.

Episode 6 of both Private Blue and Tokyo Zenryoku Shoujo, admit neither are going to end up in my top 10 but both are rather enjoyable series and completely different from each other.
Just started this one, looked to be quite promising and through 2 episodes it's lived up to it's promise, a late night show and most times they end up being the best.... Doku(Poison).

Rather quiet in this thread lately.... this season is shaping up to be much better than the Summer or Fall seasons which for the most part were poor :( except for a handful of shows, currently viewing.....

Shoten In Michiru no Mi no Uebanashi, only watched the first episode as the subbing is supposed to be slow for this show but this could show the most potential out of all of them....
(http://imageshack.us/a/img803/569/saki2.jpg)

.... but then again this has been a real solid watch, so much better than Ghost Mama, :thumbdown: not sure where the storyline is going but a real dark and mysterious show, Saki.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img29/9772/sakibi.jpg)

This could be a real sleeper, bit of a slow and quiet drama but think it'll be quite interesting watching Ayame deducing mysteries from reading books, Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou.

Only started a few this season. None of them really have any interesting themes, so it'll be slow for me.
Shotenin Michiru I find meh. Guess it can keep building up tension though.
Otome-san is a little more fun with the mother/daughter-in-law battle. Aibu Saki has done the 'evil' character a lot before, she can do the "cute smile stab you in the back" girl with skill. :P
Biblia. Detective story with old books. Most ppl won't like it, but I find it ok. Reminds me of those kid detective books I borrowed from libraries, where they have the clues right in your face but you still have no idea.
Nakuna Harachan is a little too silly simple. It really doesn't hold a candle to My Boss My Hero.

Watched some more. Most are pretty good, with a few light-hearted and fun.

Switch Girl (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/otn/switchgirl) - Girl with a On/Off mode. A kirakira perfect beauty at school, while a total slouch at home. Making a lot of funny moments.
Backtracking on this, cos some guys are starting to make english subs on season 1 and 2.
With all the guest appearances, it's like a KR/Sentai Tokusatsu festival. I've already seen like 5-6 Toku actors in it. :D
Update: Forgot to add there's Nishiuchi Mariya (who I already thought was pretty in GTO. And a regular of Picaru no Teiri) as the main girl. And Nana Mizuki doing the commentary voice too. It's like they knew I don't have much time recently to watch stuff, and mixed everything into a great show. :bow:

Nobunaga no Chef (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/nobunaga) - Main character slips through time, loses his memory, and basically needs to do a cooking battle each episode to not get executed by Oda Nobunaga.
There haven't been many cartoony over-the-top "food-themed" dramas recently. So it's worth a watch.

APOYAN (http://www.tbs.co.jp/apoyan) - Airport dramas every season, haha. This time about a travel agency guy sent to the airport to handle the passenger reception desk. This is new to me, cos I always thought the airport reception staff were all from the airline companies.
The new guy gets picked on hard every episode. Funny stuff.

Tonbi (http://www.tbs.co.jp/TONBI) - Pretty emotional story of a workplace-accident leaving a single-father to raise his son.

Hi everyone. I've recently become interested in Asian drama, I've watched a couple of shows in the past, mostly live action adaptations of mangas, like Gokusen and Nodame Cantabile, but I also loved Hikounin Sentai AkibaRanger.
I've been reading through this thread to see what you've all been enjoying, but I would appreciate a few specific suggestions as there is just so much to choose from.

I've mostly been watching comedy shows, but I'm interested in more serious drama or action as well. But I'm generally more picky when it comes to this kind of show. Is there an HBO equivalent in Japan or Korea? Are there shows that can rival the quality of US shows like The Sopranos or The Wire? And in general what are considered 'must watch' type shows from the last 5/10 years?

thanks for any suggestions.

Hi ODB. Just cross out anything you've already seen, and check out if any of the rest interest you. :)

For must-watch:
Kaseifu no Mita - probably had the biggest popularity in recent years.
LIFE - Maybe the most popular jdrama that overseas people know about.
One Litre no Namida - The classic that got everyone crying.

For some serious stuff:
Last Friends - All dark and emotional.
Bloody Monday - Anti-terrorist action with a bunch of teens. Main hook was figuring out who was selling everybody out.
Daisuki!! - Another emotional one to get everyone crying.
Pandora - Added this cos its one of my faves. :D Three seasons about a cure for real-life health/social problems in japan, eventually causing danger to uncountable lives from its discovery. With tension building up more and more till nobody knows how to end it. Fun stuff.

And for the manga turned dramas:
Switch Girl - To turn your brain off and laugh.
Liar Game - Cos everybody has seen it.
Mendol - Girls who pretend to be an idol boy group, can't get more manga than that.
Saru Lock - Cos its funny.
Otomen - Cos its funny too.

Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou - I simply love Gouriki Ayame.   Nogizaka46's Ikuta Erika makes an appearance in Episode 5.  Akira from EXILE plays the male lead - quite a change from his previous character in GTO.

Nobunaga no Chef - I like Shida Mirai and try to follow her doramas.  Lots of nice action sequences and great cooking!

I'm only watching Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou and Yae no Sakura because Gouriki Ayame and Ayase Haruka. Yae no Sakura has these cool historical segments at the end.

I usually download my doramas a month late.

I took up Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de due in part to waiting for Shoten In Michiru no Mi no Uebanashi subs.  I'm beginning to like Aya Ueto again.  She is really so wonderful in this dorama and her performance moved me to tears.  Also I like her hairstyle in this dorama.   Recommended dorama!

It has been the best and somehow gets even better after episode 4, like you said it's a shame it's taking so looooong to be subbed.... Toda Erika was amazing!- didn't you mean to say Toda Erika is amazing! :doh:

Actually Saki is giving it a contest for best drama of this season, like this one so much paused it after episode 5 so I can watch all the remaining shows in one session, it's been so good couldn't wait for the next episode.

Also currently watching this, it's from the Fall of last year and it's truly one incredible show, up to episode 11, they go too fast being only 23 minutes an episode but highly recommend this series, Piece.

(http://i1149.photobucket.com/albums/o591/masami707/Piece/Piece.jpg)

Also did yet another rewatch of this the last 2 weeks, :oops: :oops: both seasons and the Final Stage movie.... actually watched season 1 twice. :oops: :oops:

Shoten In Michiru no Mi no Uebanashi, finished episode 8, can't believe how it keeps getting better with each show, :yep: gonna do a rewatch of it even before I've watched the entire series. :O

Finished Piece, highly recommend this show, :thumbsup went in blind on what it was about, usually win out when that happens and this one was no exception, easily moved into my top 5 for 2012, was sorry when it ended even though it was 13 episodes. :sweatdrop:

Doing a rewatch of this again, probably for about the 40th time, a watch of this should be a requirement before you can join this site. :bow:

I dropped Itsuka hi after the first ep. But since you guys think it's good, I'll give it a longer watch. Wouldn't want to miss a good series.
And all the others are finishing anyways. :) None of them really hooked me this season.

Watched a few episodes of xxxHolic. Anne going all witchy again.
And it's a little like Yokai Ningen Bem with it's theme, where Bem was about a look into humanity and Holic about human's daily little bad deeds massing up and going out of control.

^If I may quote HPriest

The biggest improvements in terms of season-average were recorded by ‘Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de‘ (NHK) and ‘Shotenin Michiru no Minoue Banashi‘ (NHK) again

and...

Quote
‘Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de‘ (NHK) ended without any surprises regarding its viewer ratings, but after all, it had to go against the baseball live broadcast on Tuesday. ‘Shotenin Michiru no Minoue Banashi‘ (NHK) was at least able to achieve a new personal record with its last episode.

Please note that both finished the season below 10 percent in terms of ratings.  Decent considering the time slot, and as noted by HPriest the ratings for both were on the up trend through the season (from the first episode).

That's kinda rare I think.  Usually, doramas start on a high and drop...

recomendation dorama : Proposal Daisakusen XD

simple plot but a lot story  :) :
Ken Iwase is at his friend, Rei Yoshida's, marriage ceremony. However, he still loves her and regrets not having confessed his feelings towards her.
A fairy lets him travel back in time and try one more time to get Rei's heart.

currently i watch Kasuka na Kanojo (幽かな彼女).
the first episode was airing at 9th April 2013, so i still cant tell too much about the complexity of the story.
basicly, the dorama is about a middle school teacher and a ghost.
so far i enjoyed the dorama :)

A lot of this season's dramas have got me interested in watching.

Wish I had more time. Only started a few so far. Why are they all supernatural stuff? :roll:
Kasuka na Kanojo (http://www.ktv.jp/kasuka/) ep01 - Anne failing at haunting and instead getting bullied all the time. :sweatdrop:
All Esper Dayo! (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/esper/) ep01 - xxxHOLiC guy! And Mano Erina's first drama after her H!P grad, with a character to break from her innocent idol image. :heart: oh, and Kaho doing some hot scenes.
Vampire Heaven (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/vampire/) ep01 - Comic-book love triangle happening here. And I love seeing Honda Tsubasa's acting, she's great at doing cool characters that suddenly show a cute side.

Here's the CM for Vampire Heaven. Classic teen-romance scenes from start to finish. :lol:

Just finished watching  マジすか学園3 / Majisuka Gakuen 3 with members
from AKB48, a very strong contingent from SKE48, and a nice job from one HKT48 member.

If you understand that Idol Drama is not going to have the same acting levels
as a normally cast drama, but that you do get to see some of your favourites
in a completely different persona than you are used to, then Idol Drama is a
lot of fun to watch. And it can open up your eyes about members you haven't followed
before.

Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on April 23, 2013, 05:02:58 AM
Started up on most of the shows. Time to do the normal up-down list.

Must-see:
Vampire Heaven (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/vampire/) ep01-02 - Still loving the simple romance story and that cute vampire duo. :heart: ppl started subbing it, yeah!
Kazoku Game (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/kazoku-game/) ep01 - Drama about a home tutor doing extreme stuff (Kaseifu no Mita vibes). Sho's acting in The Quiz Show probably helps a lot. It's definitely one of the higher profile dramas this season. Kinda funny since he got number one in that poll for "person that ppl wanted to be their teacher" a month back? Probably dropped a few spots by now. The sauna scene with dad. :rofl:
Kasuka na Kanojo (http://www.ktv.jp/kasuka/) ep01-02 - Still a fun watch. It's pretty good for all ages, unlike the rest of the stuff here.
All Esper Dayo! (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/esper/) ep01-02 - Mano turning it on big-time. :bow: Two words. Bathtub Scene. Or one word. 3P. Wait, is 3P one word... :sweatdrop:
Galileo 2 (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/galileo/) ep01-02 - Same awesome classic Galileo story for ep01. Interesting~ (tries to do his 'glasses pose'). Yoshitaka taking the baton from Shibasaki hasn't affected it much. Should be greatif they're able to keep the same quality.
Otenki Oneesan (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/otenki/) ep01-02 - Weather girl solving crimes is a pretty refreshing theme, same for Takei's character. Her rivalry with Nozomi also heating up.
They're so friendly together!?? Was this picture photoshopped? :lol:
(http://i1224.photobucket.com/albums/ee374/kyot777/JPHP/37e3808047553cedb34daa9b1d7ab2a3.jpg)

Still great watches:
Take Five (http://www.tbs.co.jp/TAKE-FIVE/) ep01 - Retired expert thief gathering his old gang to find a painting, a new prodigy that challenges him, a shady cop trying to use them (join them?) and a female cop that has a grudge with all thieves. Nice.
Kumo no Kaidan (http://www.ntv.co.jp/kumonokaidan/) ep01 - A doctor assistant with no license. Saving people on an island clinic. For a little more drama, I think this is a pretty good choice. There's a lot more emotion with the main character which I find interesting, which is why I'm putting it high.
Sennyu Tantei Tokage (http://www.tbs.co.jp/tantei_tokage/) ep01 - Cool detective guy with super-spy skills (his greatly-honed visual analyzing ala Robocop). It's pretty hard to stop myself from calling him Akiyama though (Liar Game reference). :sweatdrop:

Average:
Doubles~ Futari no Keiji (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/doubles/) ep01 - Classic cop duo drama. It's so manly, you might grow a beard just watching this.
Sora Tobu Kouhoushitsu (http://www.tbs.co.jp/soratobu-tbs/) ep01-02 - Failing news reporter trying to get a scoop from an ex-fighter pilot transferred to public relations due to an injury. The overall theme of standing back up after having their original dream career taken from them provides a lot of drama.
35-sai no Koukousei (http://www.ntv.co.jp/35jk/) ep01-02 - GTO-like, just with Ryoko's schoolgirl version. Nothing surprising.
Kamo, Kyoto e Iku (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/kamokyo/) ep01 - Nao's character inheriting a traditional Kyoto hotel and facing problems keeping it running. Story is average, but knowing more about those traditional hotels is nice.

Borderline giving-up:
Bad Boys J (http://www.ntv.co.jp/bad_boys/) ep01-02 - Sadly most of the characters are really one-sided and uninteresting, unlike Sugarless where they were much more defined.. same for the action, which is more near the level of Shiritsu.
Yae no Sakura (http://www9.nhk.or.jp/yaenosakura/) ep01-07 - Paused this for some time. Still want to get back to it.
Last Cinderella (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/Last_Cinderella/) ep01 - Not really interested. Will probably drop this one.
Goen Hunter (http://www.nhk.or.jp/dodra/goen/) ep01 - Same here.
Meshibana Keiji Tachibana (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/official/meshibana/) ep01 - It's a food guide, and made me hungry for soba... wish I was in Japan.

Been a while since a post here.... :sweatdrop:

From the Spring season:

Vampire Heaven was a bit of a disappointment, :( started out well and ended off strongly but the middle episodes were the absolute pits.... 7/10.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img43/4605/vh1n.jpg)

Tsuma wa, Kunoichi was a bit better, not a terrific drama but an okay time killer.... 8/10.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img138/272/tsuma.jpg)

Otenki Oneesan was one enjoyable drama though, 8) think it's been Emi's best to date, wish it was longer than 9 episodes.... 9.2/10.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img546/5995/otenki.jpg)

These were a pair of short dramas that only had 4 episodes with a length about 28 minutes but both were really good, had they been longer would have gotten much higher grades but both are recommended.... 8.5/10. :O

Summer season looks like a very promising one, not many have gotten subbed yet though, started off with this one, looked rather interesting and has no real faves of mine, trying to stretch my boundaries a bit, first two episodes have been excellent, :thumbsup there's only going to be 6 episodes though.... Double Tone.

Few more on my going-to-watch list, skimmed through them but no subs puts them on the pending list, first one has subs but they weren't all that good. :sweatdrop:

No doubt through 2 episodes Hanazawa Naoki could be the best of the season.... :O
(http://imageshack.us/a/img594/7402/6ov7.jpg)

.... but have to say even though this is not quite as good it's a more enjoyable watch, this really has a unique plot to it, just finished episode 4 and sadly there's only 2 more to go, :sweatdrop: really recommend Double Tone....
(http://imageshack.us/a/img198/292/6zbx.jpg)

.... and was very surprised that this is being subbed, watched the first two episodes and this is a real winner, Limit.

Catching up. Same old top down. :)

Must-watch:
Hanzawa Naoki (http://www.tbs.co.jp/hanzawa_naoki/) ep01-03 - you guys are right. The battling parts are really fun to watch, and it has a great cast. It's kinda like his Joker character jumped into Legal High.
Limit (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/limit/) ep01-03 - Highschool girls surviving in the wild forest. yay! Hope they don't keep doing flashbacks though.
Tenma-san ga Yuku (http://www.tbs.co.jp/tenma_neo/) ep01-03 - Another cheap night drama that's a shameless Ghostbusters rip-off. Fun stuff.
Woman (http://www.ntv.co.jp/woman2013/) ep01 - A single-mother's hardships in taking care of her two kids. Really touching. Out of all these, this one really got my attention. On the other hand, it gets pretty depressing so I don't know if I can keep following it.

Great:
Shomuni 2013 (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/shomu2/index.html) ep01- Classic series keeping the same touches everywhere, still gives me that weird vibe. Nice for some laughs.
DOCTORS 2 Saikyou no Meii (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/doctors/) ep01- Didn't expect this hospital drama to get a sequel. First season was pretty good. I think this will turn out ok too.
Na mo Naki Doku (http://www.tbs.co.jp/namonakidoku/) ep01 - Guy marrying the daughter of a rich businessman, with everyone around him looking like they're scheming evil plans.
Gekiryu Watashi wo Oboete Imasuka? (http://www.nhk.or.jp/drama10/gekiryu/) ep01 - Seven students on a Kyoto school trip, one of the girls becomes missing. Fast-forwards to 20 years later when the remaining six get a message from the missing girl. I'm kinda torn on this one. It could turn out pretty interesting. Reminds me I still haven't finished watching Piece. :P

Average:
Saitou-san 2 (http://www.ntv.co.jp/saito-san2/) ep01-02 - Kiritani Mirei is darn cute as a young wife and mother. But I don't know why, I can't stand dramas with Mizuki Arisa in it.
SUMMER NUDE (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/SUMMER-NUDE/index.html) ep01 - First episode didn't really hook me in, even with the great cast. I'm just worried it'll be like Beach Boys, with the story going nowhere.

Giving up:
Akuryo Byoto (http://www.mbs.jp/akuryo/) ep01 - horror stuff. and it's the sudden close-up screaming face with with a loud bang sound types which I'm bloody weak. Dropping it.
StarMan Kono Hoshi no Koi (http://www.ktv.jp/starman/index.html) ep01 - A mother of three takes in a guy with amnesia and makes him their dad. Story is pretty stupid. And uninteresting.

Post by: Yoshino on August 02, 2013, 03:32:00 AM
Limit does have many flashbacks but when 25(?) out of 30 students have kicked the bucket before the end of the first episode guess they need to do that, one of the better cliffhangers to end off episode 3, actually there's three cliffhangers at once, :panic: really liking this series.

Been meaning to start Gekiryu Watashi wo Oboete Imasuka?, really looks to be a winner of a show, will watch it but may wait until it finishes it's run because I....

.... started on the current NHK asadora Amachan, these dramas are so long but thought I'd give it a try, on the middle of week 2 and knew it would be good but not this good, does have so much longer to go but so far give it a Yoshino :thumbsup.

Watched episode 4 subbed!  Ueto Aya was great too although in a supporting role (as the supportive wife).  Sakai Masato was truly awesome and likely frontrunner for best actor.

Indeed, Hanzawa Naoki is truly the best of the season!  Viewers seem to agree!

Quote
'Hanzawa Naoki' recorded an amazing average episode rating of 27.6% (Kansai: 27.5%), which is an improvement of 4.7% compared to last week's already great rating of 22.9%. The rating peaked at exactly 30.0% (Kansai: 30.5%) when the Hanzawa (Sakai Masato) confronted the club hostess played by Dan Mitsu.

Caught up on Yae No Sakura. The warring scenes in around ep25-30 lifted it up a lot (most of the early episodes were a snoozfest).

And ep01 of Yamada-kun to 7 nin no Majo. Bringing back some of that Switch Girl comedy. :)

"Hanzawa Naoki" soars to new heights with 42.2% in Kanto for its finale
 TBS summer 2013 drama "Hanzawa Naoki" which has been a ratings winner this season, finished on a high note with a rating of 42.2% in the Kanto region for its finale shown on 22 Sep. It got an even higher figure of 45.5% in the Kansai region as announced by Video Research on 24 Sep. With this result, "Hanzawa Naoki" is No.4 in terms of top average ratings for dramas in the Kanto region since ratings monitoring began in September 1977 and has grabbed the No.1 spot in Kansai, beating "Mito Komon" which had held the title since 1981. Amid low ratings plaguing Japanese dramas in recent years, "Hanzawa Naoki" has managed to buck the trend thus making it a rare ratings winner.

 As for the highest single moment rating, "Hanzawa Naoki" scored 46.7% in Kanto and 50.4% in Kansai at the point right after the episode ended.

Post by: winner on October 15, 2013, 08:38:27 PM
Starting up the Fall dramas. :)

Must-watch:
Legal High 2 (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/legal-high/) ep01 - Still crazy funny.
Ando Lloyd ~A.I. knows LOVE~ (http://www.tbs.co.jp/ANDO-LLOYD/) ep01 - Guess Kimutaku really wanted to do a Terminator x Matrix crossover. It has a great cast, and I love these sci-fi shows.
Miss Pilot (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/misspilot/) ep01 - Maki's pilot trainee character is really cute. Scenes are done really professionally too. Looks pretty solid.

Great:
Umi no Ue no Shinryojo (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/uminoueno_shinryojo/) ep01 - Doctor of a boat clinic that travels between islands. Lotsa funny Matsuda Shota scenes. It's a nice watch.
Yorozu Uranaidokoro Onmyoya e Yokoso (http://www.ktv.jp/onmyoya/) ep01 - Host club guy turned into a fortune teller. Pretty boring. But it has Yukirin in it (for like 1 minute), and that's why it's great... for me at least.
Kurokochi (http://www.tbs.co.jp/kurokouchi/) ep01 - A detective using dirty tricks and acting all 'bad cop' to solve cases. I like it.

Average:
Toshi Densetsu no Onna 2 (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/toshidensetsu/) ep01 - Pretty much the same as season 1. It's ok, but not that entertaining.
Dokusinkizoku (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/dokusinkizoku/) ep01 - Rich boss hiring his house-cleaner as a script writer. It's like a 90's jdrama theme, hehe. But it's pretty good.
Dandarin-Roudou Kijun Kantokukan (http://www.ntv.co.jp/dandarin/) ep01 - Workplace Inspector going out of her way making ppl follow workplace standards. Not bad, so I think I'll keep watching.
Tokyo Toy Box (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/tokyo_toybox/) ep01-02 - Game publisher boss, that always tries to make the perfect game. It has a tiny bit of Akihabara themes, so I'll follow it for a bit too.

Giving Up:
Link (http://www.wowow.co.jp/dramaw/link/) ep01 - Crazy great cast. Speed watched it. Didn't really like it though.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on October 22, 2013, 06:33:51 PM
A few more to round up the set. :oops:

Must-watch:
Hard Nut ~Suugaku Girl No Koi Suru Jikenbo~ (http://www.nhk.or.jp/drama/hardnut/) ep01 - Basically Galileo switched with a ditsy mathematician girl solving the crimes. Hashimoto Ai's character is really cute. Compared to the other detective dramas, this one is much more light-hearted. Might be a bit early to guess if this good or not, but I'm liking it so far.

Great:
Doctor-X 2 (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/doctor-x/) ep01 - Same high quality show. Should be an ok watch.

Average:
Keiji no Manazashi (http://www.tbs.co.jp/keijinomanazashi/) ep01 - Ex-worker at a juvenile detention center switched to violent crimes detective. Its a little too serious and slow-paced for me. I'll probably skip it.

Will get to the Fall season next time around, some finished ones from the Summer, still have a few to finish as I prefer for a series to end so you can watch all the episodes in a row.
Doctors 2 was solid and a bit better than the first season, kind of show that could have a few more seasons, sort of didn't have an actual ending so perhaps it will.... 8.8/10. :O

(http://imageshack.us/a/img198/2378/itmv.jpg)

Limit was also quite good, least for the first 8 episodes then sort of got too sappy at the end, could have had a much better ending.... 8/10. :sweatdrop:

(http://imageshack.us/a/img571/1972/ftra.jpg)

Just finished this drama from 2012, have to go back and change my rankings for that year, had Saigo Kara Nibanme no Koi as my #1 but this overtook it as it was one superb drama, best Ive watched in a real long time, Hungry!.... 9.7/10. 8)

(http://imageshack.us/a/img833/2766/5lr5.jpg)

Subs are being done slowly but just started this asadora from 2010, Teppan, really looks like a winner. :yep:

(http://imageshack.us/a/img585/6564/k83d.jpg)

Also restarted this series, had watched the first episode but couldn't find any others but now have the whole show subbed, Ikemen Desu ne. :shocked

Post by: SomethingWild on November 15, 2013, 10:49:35 AM
Just finished Amachan! I can write a book about it  :lol:
- The first 72 eps were the best imo. It could have ended there.
- After that the plots went a bit too fat fetched
- I didn't like what they did to Yui's character, even though it was pretty funny. She took the easy way out, twice.
- But yeah, very enjoyable.  :thumbup

Also finished Limit. Hated it.  :nervous
These themes have been done to death and the acting was pretty poor imo. Couldn't really get into it on any level.

Finished Yamada-kun to 7 nin no Majo.
This switching concept has also been done to death, but this was very enjoyable.
Underpants humor with likable characters you can relate to. It was predictable, but still very funny imo.

I'm at ep 5 of Ando Lloyd ~A.I. knows LOVE~ . Mixed feelings so far.
The entire concept is pretty cool and the cast and acting is solid.
However, a lot of it so far is all the same. The love story is finally picking up a bit, so I'll keep watching.

edit: Also grabbed Umi no Ue no Shinryojo and Hard Nut but I need subs for these  :nervous

eddit 2: aw yeah, found the subs!

Ando Lloyd is so cash. Kimutaku and Shibasaki Kou are amazing, and the story is fresh enough. I love me some Suppli too.. Oshima Yuko is a little awkward in her role, though, to be honest..

Legal High 2 is tight, too :thumbup
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Yoshino on November 17, 2013, 10:10:56 PM
Just watched the Legal High special so will be starting on season 2 soon. Aren't that many which really interest me this season, :sweatdrop: a fairly weak one but am currently viewing....

.... Miss Pilot isn't all that special but it's been quite enjoyable, the last episode was the best so far and has the potential to be a really good series.

(http://imageshack.us/a/img7/5277/o833.jpg)

Know I'm in the minority but both seasons of Toshi Densetsu no Onna are real big faves of mine. :oops:

(http://imageshack.us/a/img850/8602/opaq.jpg)

Always have a few rewatches going on also, don't know why but on this drama for about the 10th time. :O

(http://imageshack.us/a/img51/4324/fqff.jpg)

Plus watching this again, really could be one of the most underrated dramas of all time as it's one of the most superb shows you can ever view, from 2004 The Proof of Man aka Ningen no Shomei, one of those rare shows which deserves a 10 rating. :shocked

Halfway in. I'd say Hard Nut is my fave this season. Nerdy romance comedy plus cool maths crime solving. :wub:
That category pair-up normally means losing the focus of the story, but they merge them together really well. Doesn't hurt the flow at all.
I'd totally recommend it. :)

Can't really think of any recent school dramas that really stand out.
The GTO reboot was ok. And Hammer Session from a few years back is entertaining and has a nice cast. They both use the same old 'help a student with their problem in one episode' formula though.

You could also try Switch Girl!!. It's a school romance comedy, so it totally fits what you want. :lol:


Finished watching Amachan. Yeah! :oops: 156 episodes in 5 days. Couldn't stop till I finished it. :nervous

Finished Ando Lloyd ~A.I. knows LOVE~:
It started out pretty interesting and entertaining, but after episode three or so it started to get very repetitive.
Even though Oshima Yuko's character had some interesting developments it was not enough to save the show.
Suppli and that old detective guy always provided the best scenes. I wouldn't really recommend this show tbh.

Started watching Umi no Ue no Shinryojo but quit after three eps.
It had some entertaining scenes, but that doctor character is pretty damn annoying.
It's like House but without the clever rhetoric. And Takei Emi's lines are a bit too corny.
Emi appeared "naked" in the first episode and kicked a guy in the face, which was awesome. lol
I'm a bit disappointed since I was looking forward to another epic Takei Emi dorama. Guess they can't all be like Tokyo Zenryoku Shoujo.

Finally started Hard Nuts:
This show is awesome. Very entertaining and light, despite the serious crimes and heavy math insights. The cast works really well together.
Btw, is it me or did Nounen Rena's portrayal of Amano Aki rub off on Hashimoto Ai here? Her chara gave me massive Aki vibes at first. lol

Almost completed Miss Pilot, one episode left.
Horikita Maki is great as always. Love the airplane stuff too.
My only beef with the show is that it is a bit overly dramatic at times. First you got all the drama surrounding you know who during the training.
When that was finally resolved all that stuff with Tezuka's you know what happened. Bit of a downer.
Would have liked them to do more with all the romance triangles they got going on to provide a lighter comical note in the series.

After watching the whole thing, I'd say they're both annoying characters. Really disappointed. And a total waste of Matsuda and Takei's talent.
Only thing that was mildly interesting was seeing who was the next "guest girl".

I watched the last episode today. Totally agree with what you said.
The drama-plot turns were way-heavy. Like something bad has to happen at the end of every single episode. XD
They put the romance storylines on the side, to stay more focused on the training theme, which was good. But I wanted to see them get lovey dovey too. The trainee guys characters are all likeable with their stereotypes, having some fireworks could've pushed the series to classic-level.

Post by: winner on January 14, 2014, 08:09:55 AM
Starting up the Winter dramas. :)
Nothing particularly good. Nothing totally boring either. But I'm just starting

Must watch:
S - Saigo no Keikan (http://www.tbs.co.jp/S-saigonokeikan-/) ep01 - High-profile 'movie-quality' manga turned drama. The creation of a new police assault unit "NPS", that takes down dangerous criminals while vowing not to allow anyone to die in the process. Solid stuff.

Shitsuren Chocolatier (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/chocolatier/) ep01 - Romance comedy with an idol cast. MatsuJun and Ishihara Satomi are an awesome pairing, basically every scene with those two make for some great laughs. LOL at random erotic Satomi eating chocolate scene. LOL x2 at MatsuJun wedding speech.
Don't know if I'm laughing more at MatsuJun's chara being such a masochist, or my past self for chasing someone just like Saeko... :sweatdrop:

Good:
Kinkyu Torishirabeshitsu (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/kintori/) ep01 - Same old negotiator-type cop drama. Just think Koshonin, switch Yonekura Ryoko to Amami Yuki, have 80% of the show filmed in one room, and you have a basic idea of the first episode. Don't think it'll do anything surprising, but it does have a great supporting cast doing their magic with the characters.

Iryu 4 (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/iryu4/) ep01 - More of the same hospital drama goodness.

Senryokugai Sousakan (http://www.ntv.co.jp/senryokugai/) ep01 - Light-hearted cop drama with Takei Emi going back to her cute meddling character-type (Thank god! No more boring Umi no Ue no Shinryojo chara!). Another EXILE'r TAKAHIRO dipping into acting. He's not bad, but definitely room for improvement. If they spark it off, it might turn out pretty good.

Lost Days (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/lostdays/) ep01 - A group of graduating classmates having a holiday before they go into society, at one of the girl's family mountain cabins. Surprisingly finding her creepy brother already there. And news of a convict on the loose in the area. Plus a really messed up love relationship chart. Let the mystery murders begin. :D
Waits for the imminent Kamen Rider Kiva vs Kamen Rider W battle. :lol:

Dr. DMAT (http://www.tbs.co.jp/DrDMAT/) ep01 - Another hospital drama. About a doctor joining DMAT, a disaster rescue team made of volunteers. While battling the trauma of previously being unable to save his little sister, that is currently in a coma.
OK. It's more interesting than my explanation. But the story is pretty slow and the cast is isn't that strong.

OK:
Boku no Ita Jikan (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/bokunoitajikan/) ep01 - I think it's a really good drama. Basically 1 Litre no Namida (guy version). I'm pretty depressed already IRL though, so I might drop this before I get more sad. :P

Dropping:
Nazo no Tenkosei (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/nazono_tenkosei/) ep01 - Weird Sci-fi show. Not that interesting.

Kami no Tsuki  (http://www.nhk.or.jp/drama10/kaminotsuki/) ep01 - A housewife having a mid-life crisis. It reminds me of Shotenin Michiru no Mi no Uebanashi that Erika Toda was in. Pacing is really slow though (that's like Shotenin Michiru too!). Way too many depressing drama scenes for me to enjoy it.

^Thanks! Bit fed up with police/hospital stuff, but Senryokugai Sousakan sounds pretty good. I hope it'll get subbed.


I also started on SHARK: http://wiki.d-addicts.com/SHARK (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/SHARK)

Plot reminded me a bit of Tokyo Friends, but it seems a bit more serious and it's from a guy point of view.
I was hoping for some Kawaei Rina x Mano Erina action, but they only have supporting roles.

In the end it's the geeky guy from Miss Pilot (Fujii Ryusei) and the crazy girl from Limit (Yamashita Rio) which makes it a bit hard to get into  :nervous

Thought ep. 1 of Shark was okay, I'm one who needs subs :oops: and watched it without them but it seems passable....
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip06908.jpg)

.... first episode of Shitsuren Chocolatier was fairly good and left off with another storyline which could make it even more interesting....
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip06910.jpg)

....will be watching more but just those 2 for now, Lost Days is one that will be watched, hope it's as good as it seems to be.

Miss Pilot was solid but a few not so good episodes dragged it down, especially the last one, :sweatdrop: most of the cast was okay except for a few of the other pilot trainees, 8/10.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip06909.jpg)

Few other older watches just finished, this one actually shocked me, :shocked fairly unbelievable and the acting was somewhat forgettable but ended up really liking it, :shocked: about to start it again as they're only 25 minute episodes, will give it a 8.2/10.....
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip06911.jpg)

.... and Ikemen desu ne was another drama that was much better than expected, haven't seen the Korean version of it but heard this stayed close to the original, 8.5/10.

Senryokugai Sousakan is being subbed so I 'll start with that this week!  :thumbup

I also started with Shitsuren Chocolatier. Since I started watching more doramas I start to recognize more of the cast... This is no exception.
Of course, Satomi Ishihara and Jun Matsumoto are really famous (even though I still think of Jun as the kid in Gokusen, haha).
Then there was Asami Mizukawa... I KNEW I knew her from somewhere. Took me forever to figure it out, but she's the violinist from Nodame Cantabile!
Idols are great and all, but in the end, someone like Asami Mizukawa is hard to beat. Like a mature Suzuki Shihori. lol
Kasumi Arimura I recognized from Amachan immediately.

So yeah, interesting cast, nice lighthearted romance story... very nice indeed.


These two shows will make up my winter season. I'm dropping Shark.

Post by: Yoshino on January 24, 2014, 09:19:25 PM
Couple more new ones I've started on, main reason is because they were subbed but also looked a bit more interesting than most of the other new dramas.

Post by: redrick9 on February 06, 2014, 06:00:34 AM
Starting up the Winter dramas. :)
Nothing particularly good. Nothing totally boring either. But I'm just starting

Must watch:
S - Saigo no Keikan (http://www.tbs.co.jp/S-saigonokeikan-/) ep01 - High-profile 'movie-quality' manga turned drama. The creation of a new police assault unit "NPS", that takes down dangerous criminals while vowing not to allow anyone to die in the process. Solid stuff.

Shitsuren Chocolatier (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/chocolatier/) ep01 - Romance comedy with an idol cast. MatsuJun and Ishihara Satomi are an awesome pairing, basically every scene with those two make for some great laughs. LOL at random erotic Satomi eating chocolate scene. LOL x2 at MatsuJun wedding speech.
Don't know if I'm laughing more at MatsuJun's chara being such a masochist, or my past self for chasing someone just like Saeko... :sweatdrop:

Good:
Kinkyu Torishirabeshitsu (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/kintori/) ep01 - Same old negotiator-type cop drama. Just think Koshonin, switch Yonekura Ryoko to Amami Yuki, have 80% of the show filmed in one room, and you have a basic idea of the first episode. Don't think it'll do anything surprising, but it does have a great supporting cast doing their magic with the characters.

Iryu 4 (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/iryu4/) ep01 - More of the same hospital drama goodness.

Senryokugai Sousakan (http://www.ntv.co.jp/senryokugai/) ep01 - Light-hearted cop drama with Takei Emi going back to her cute meddling character-type (Thank god! No more boring Umi no Ue no Shinryojo chara!). Another EXILE'r TAKAHIRO dipping into acting. He's not bad, but definitely room for improvement. If they spark it off, it might turn out pretty good.

Lost Days (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/lostdays/) ep01 - A group of graduating classmates having a holiday before they go into society, at one of the girl's family mountain cabins. Surprisingly finding her creepy brother already there. And news of a convict on the loose in the area. Plus a really messed up love relationship chart. Let the mystery murders begin. :D
Waits for the imminent Kamen Rider Kiva vs Kamen Rider W battle. :lol:

Dr. DMAT (http://www.tbs.co.jp/DrDMAT/) ep01 - Another hospital drama. About a doctor joining DMAT, a disaster rescue team made of volunteers. While battling the trauma of previously being unable to save his little sister, that is currently in a coma.
OK. It's more interesting than my explanation. But the story is pretty slow and the cast is isn't that strong.

OK:
Boku no Ita Jikan (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/bokunoitajikan/) ep01 - I think it's a really good drama. Basically 1 Litre no Namida (guy version). I'm pretty depressed already IRL though, so I might drop this before I get more sad. :P

Dropping:
Nazo no Tenkosei (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/nazono_tenkosei/) ep01 - Weird Sci-fi show. Not that interesting.

Kami no Tsuki  (http://www.nhk.or.jp/drama10/kaminotsuki/) ep01 - A housewife having a mid-life crisis. It reminds me of Shotenin Michiru no Mi no Uebanashi that Erika Toda was in. Pacing is really slow though (that's like Shotenin Michiru too!). Way too many depressing drama scenes for me to enjoy it.

yay, i already watch Boku no Ita Jikan.... like ur said, its a sad plot, but i really enjoy the watching while im tearing up  :P
and why always police and hospital plot??
any recommend like a highschool plot guys? i really like school life in japan  :twothumbs or more like Stand Up!! and 7-nin no Majo... bit funny and ero :p

^I think Yoru no Sensei is the only 'school drama' this season, and it's the "teacher helping students" theme. Totally different from the fun highschool drama genre you're looking for.
Maybe cos it's Winter, all the dramas need to be super-serious. :P

You might like Shitsuren Chocolatier. The manga romance/comedy should help balance out Boku no Ita Jikan nicely.

I'm currently watching Rich Man, Poor Woman and Shitsuren Chocolatier. I've developed a love for Ishihara Satomi. She's just so great and expressive imo.

I also heard S - Saigo no Keikan is good too, so I definitely must watch it.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on April 20, 2014, 01:23:48 PM
Spring dramas started airing.

Must-watch:
Alice no Toge (http://www.tbs.co.jp/alice2014/) ep01 - I would say 'another hospital drama'. But that is totally not what this show is about. Its about a girl becoming a doctor, to get revenge on the negligent doctors that caused her father's death. RAWR!~~ Juri Ueno doing this shady calculating role is pretty refreshing. And you'know, this type of story really hooks viewers to keep watching.
Pandora 4 (http://www.wowow.co.jp/dramaw/pandora/) - Its not even on till Apr 27th. But they're so good. I love my Pandora. :heart:
Gunshi Kanbee (http://www1.nhk.or.jp/kanbe) - Taiga drama. Yay! :) It's already 10+ episodes in.

Good:
Yowakutemo Katemasu (http://www.ntv.co.jp/katemasu/) ep01 - Nino's character becomes a substitute teacher and coach for a failing highschool baseball team. I think they just exploded Nino's lazy gaming chara and made it into a story. :P It's pretty fun.
Bitter Blood (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/BitterBlood) ep01 - Father/Son cop duo. A few good laughing scenes.
Black President (http://www.ktv.jp/black) ep01 - A well-known apparel company president, goes to college to study company management. And has clashes with his instructor and the film club students. It brings up a lot of interesting points.
Gokuaku Ganbo (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/ganbo) ep01 - A woman getting in debt, joins a "Financial Consultant" company that uses gaps in the law to profit. It's pretty entertaining.

OK:
Smoking Gun (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/SMOKINGGUN) ep01 - Forensic researcher that investigates and finds conclusive evidence to solve civil cases. yup.
Shinigami-Kun (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/shinigamikun/) ep01 - A god of death, telling people that they're gonna die and pushes them to do what they want before that time comes. He accidentally drops his book, listing who's gonna die, in the end of the first episode. Which gets picked up by a normal person. LOL. It's like Death Note (sooooo not going to be like Death Note)
BORDER (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/border/) ep01- A cop getting shot in the head. Then being able to see ghosts to solve murders. It's alright.
MOZU (http://www.tbs.co.jp/mozu_tbs/) ep01 - Bombing guy loses memory, a gritty cop losing his wife from it, an evil security company planned it. conspiracy conspiracy conspiracy :lol: Super great cast. Slowest, most convoluted/boring pacing EVER!

Dropping:
First Class (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/firstclass) ep01 - Catfighting. Not my thing.
Silent Poor (http://www.nhk.or.jp/drama10/silentpoor) ep01 - Community social worker helping people. average.

Just two new watches so far for this season, perhaps I'll add another one or so in the future but once again not a real strong season.
Up to episode 4 of this, so far it's been rather enjoyable.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07228.jpg)

Just started this one today, like the main cast so thought I'd give it a bid, first episode was fairly good.

Once Hirugao gets a few more episodes subbed will be starting on that one, besides that drama there aren't that many again which catch my eye, actually sometimes I wonder if it's because the ones I'm interested in never get subbed. :sweatdrop: Would like to watch Kodoku no Gurume, Kodoku no Gourmet 4, first two seasons were subbed but not the third one so shouldn't hold out hope for this season then. Just started on this one today and it really looks to be a winner, first show was 90 minutes but didn't drag at all, Last Doctor.

Powered through all of MOZU and Hero (Season 1) in a week. Loved both. MOZU was one of the best doramas I've ever seen (aside from that rushed ending). Don't know how I missed out on Hero before, but it was just swell. I finished it in time to pick up season 2, which is turning out pretty good so far as well.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on July 30, 2014, 03:06:37 PM
^I ended up watching through MOZU too. It did get better once they started chasing after the amnesia guy. The conspiracy was still too much for me. :lol:
Still haven't checked out Season 2 yet. But its just 5 episodes, should just do it in the weekend.

Waited for so long for Dai Tokyo Toy Box to get subbed, didn't happen so I just watched it raw. :P

Summer dramas. Just started some of the popular ones. Still haven't started up HERO or GTO yet.

Must watch:
Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo N (http://www.ntv.co.jp/kindaichi2014/) (ep01-02) - Episodes so far actually feels pretty close to the original series, and the acting isn't as flat as the previous specials either. Twitter (https://twitter.com/Kindaichi_N) announced Takato Yoichi (from their recent SP) will appear in episode 5, that's one to look out for.
Wakamonotachi 2014 (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/wakamono/) (ep01) - Remake of an old drama about a sibling family and troubles of youth. Nice cast. :)

Good:
Peter no Souretsu (http://www.tbs.co.jp/petero2014) (ep01-03) - This is the 2nd season? I only watched like 2 episodes of the 1st season and stopped. Anyways, its a pretty dark drama starting with a bus-jacking, that is revealed to be a much bigger plot. I'm pretty interested how it'll turn out.
Zero no Shinjitsu (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/zeroshin) (ep01-02) - A genius forensic pathologist, going out of her way to investigate and solve deaths. Yup, one of those dramas.

Average:
Suikyu Yankees (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/suikyuyankees/) (ep01-02) - The Summer idol drama of the bunch. School boys forming a water polo team to beat the top team in their district to save their school getting demolished.
Turn off your brain. Watch cute boys and cute girls. End of story.
offtopic: That Sano Hinako is like everywhere nowadays isn't she. :oops:
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Yoshino on August 16, 2014, 03:26:37 AM
Up to episode 5 of Last Doctor, it's actually much better than I expected, not a must watch but a real solid view.
Two recent short ones that I just finished:
Tsui no Sumika, two-parter that ran at the end of July which was kind of an interesting watch.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07439.jpg)

SAVEPOINT was another solid watch, it was four episodes at 22+ minutes, really would been much better with longer episodes or another show or two.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07438.jpg)

Just started on Quartet today which is from 2011, just though the first episode so not sure how it's going to turn out but so far quite a bit of action and violence.

Picked up the midnight drama Aoi Honoo (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/aoihonoo/index.html). Currently on ep07.

Adapted from the manga. Story about a college guy that aims to be a manga artist in the 80's, pretty much failing every episode.
It describes anime/manga trends during then, which is pretty fun. :)
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Yoshino on September 18, 2014, 03:30:45 AM
One more episode of Last Doctor to view, just waiting for the subs and it's been a real enjoyable watch, stories haven't always been top notch but the characters have been quite interesting and the cast seems to click so well with each other.
Quartet started out a bit sluggish for the first two episodes, not much of a plot/story for those shows but then after that it really picked up and became kind of an intense series, especially the last two episodes, would give it an 8.5/10.
No real reason but I don't like watching too many dramas as they're airing, like to wait some months or even years after they've ended to watch them, not sure why but that's been my style for a while.... a second season of this series just started last week but didn't watch the first one so now on to this drama from 2013, Itazura na Kiss ~ Love in Tokyo, up to episode 4 and surprisingly it's been quite a good watch, hopefully I'll be able to sit through all 16 episodes, can't believe it's that long. :bleed eyes:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07514.jpg)

Also just started season one Soko Wo Nantoka today, it's from 2012 and the second season of it is currently airing, too early to tell how it's going to be.

Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Yoshino on October 26, 2014, 02:28:59 AM
Still waiting for the last few episodes of Soko Wo Nantoka to be subbed, it's been okay but expected it to be a bit better. :sweatdrop:
Just finished this series again, forgot how many times it's been as I lost count after 50.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07655.jpg)

Think one reason this year hasn't been as good for dramas is the lack of good late night series, they've been the best ones the last few years but either the amount of them has been cut back or they're not nearly as good as they used to be. But this is a late night drama which just started on Tuesday which is the third season of Shinya Shokudo, second season was solid but not nearly as good as the first season which truly is a must watch, hard to recommend a drama more than that one. Just started on the third season as the first episode was surprisingly subbed already, looks like another winner this time around. :thumbsup

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07654.jpg)

Haven't started Dear Sister yet but will shortly as I just found subs for it, just had it's second episode this week.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07652.jpg)

Unsure about these two dramas which are Sakura and Sutekina Sentaxi, Yukie's are such hit and miss ones as they either rate a 9/10 or a 4/10, there's no middle ground for her shows, has anyone seen either of these ones yet?

Playing catch up. :)

Must-watch:
Kurofuku Monogatari (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/kurofuku/) ep01-02 - It has Yukirin! :heart:
Nobunaga Concerto (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/nobunaga-concerto-drama/index.html) ep01-04 - Oguri Shun time traveling to the Sengoku period. Fun! :heart:

Good:
N no Tameni (http://www.tbs.co.jp/Nnotameni/) ep01-03 - Murder, love, drama, youth, family, tragedy. And a whole buncha N's. :lol:
Jigoku Sensei Nube (http://www.ntv.co.jp/nube/) ep01-04 - I remember watching the anime, which was much more fun. Anyways, more Sano Hinako! :D

Average:
Doctor X (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/doctor-x/) ep01-04 - More X? Why not do some more Negotiator? I liked that waaay more. :roll:
Gomenne Seishun (http://www.tbs.co.jp/gomenne_tbs/) ep01 - Kawaei. :heart:

One more on the side. Cos I really like it.
Henshin (http://www.wowow.co.jp/dramaw/henshin/index.html) ep01 - Its a 5-episode suspense drama.
The main character, Junichi, is shot in the head during a jewelry store robbery at Christmas, when buying a wedding ring for his girlfriend. He is later saved, but is kept isolated in the hospital, when he begins to have slight changes in his emotions compared to before the surgery. Like easily getting aggravated.
It is later revealed the robber that shot Junichi died on the same night as the robbery. Killing himself, and was sent to the same hospital as Junichi.
Really edge-gritting stuff. Kamiki Ryunosuke is great in it.

man, I need to get off my ass.
I only finished off Kurofuku, Jigoku Sensei and Doc X from last season.
Haven't watched anything from this season yet. :nervous Well, there's Majisuka Gakuen 4 of course. :rock:

Instead, I finished off Piece (Nakayama Yuma, Honda Tsubasa). That story sure ended up pretty weird.

Maybe I'll catch up on the winter dramas this weekend. I'll get to watch a few eps straight through. instead of waiting. :)

@ redrick9
Check out Nobunaga Concerto if you haven't yet. :thumbup Darn, I so want to watch the rest of it. Decided, that's what I'll do tonight! :D
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on February 09, 2015, 06:18:51 AM
Done with Nobunaga Concerto. :heart: Damn, they're continuing it with a movie.... in December.... :banghead:
Also speed watched First Class 2 for no reason.

2015 Winter catchup.

Must-watch:
Majisuka Gakuen 4 (http://www.ntv.co.jp/majisuka4/) ep01-04 - Back to the school setting. Back to the same story. Thank god! Loving it. :heart:

Date (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/date/index.html) ep01 - An unemployed literature hermit guy and an "everything needs to be checked and in order" "numbers" girl getting together from an online dating service. Its crazy funny.

Ouroboros (http://www.tbs.co.jp/OUROBOROS/) ep01-02 - Two orphan boys growing up, one becoming a police detective and the other becoming a high-ranking yakuza, swearing to take revenge on their teacher's murder. Classic theme.

Gakkou no Kaidan (http://www.ntv.co.jp/kaidan/) ep01 - Innocent highschool girl getting pushed to become the president of the student council, and bullied to hell by the elite rich gang. Then getting help from a mysterious man that teaches her to use words to fight back. Another classic drama theme. I like how Satoshi's answer is to "Destroy Everything!". This should have a meme. Getting bullied? "Destroy Everything!". Missed the bus? "Destroy Everything!". Happy Meal toys all sold out? "Destroy Everything!" :lol:

good:
Hana Moyu (http://www.nhk.or.jp/hanamoyu/) ep01-02 - The next taiga drama after Gunshi Kanbei. Unlike the past few, there aren't wars and stuff in this one. So -1 for manliness. It seems more focused on a revolution of literature during that period.
update: Oh wait. Perry and the black ship. So its pretty much the same period as Ryomaden and Yae no Sakura. And will probably touch on some of the same topics in history.

Marumaru Tsuma (http://www.ntv.co.jp/tsuma/) ep01 - Basically Kaseifu no Mita without the kids.

Zannen na Otto (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/zannen/) ep01 - Perfect couple that have a new baby, which causes drastic changes to them and their lifestyle. Lotsa comedy. :heart:

Average:
Ryusei Wagon (http://www.tbs.co.jp/ryusei_wagon/) ep01 - A family salaryman pretty much has the worst day of his life. Dies (maybe). Then rides a ghost car to important moments in his past. Where his father surprisingly appears (looking much younger for unknown reasons). He and his father then try to change things for the better together, hoping this is a chance given to him to fix his life. It has great drama, just a little too much sadness. Like I said, I feel like watching more simple and fun stuff this season. Like yankee schoolgirls beating each other up.

Zeni no Sensou (http://www.ktv.jp/zeni/) ep01 - A successful businessman losing everything in his life, swearing he'll get revenge by getting it back with money. Kusanagi's acting was so awful in this it pretty much destroys the show. I'm gonna watch one more ep and if it ain't any good I'll just skip it.

For remaining stuff.
Masshiro (http://www.tbs.co.jp/masshiro2015/) - Horikita Maki as a nurse that gets bullied. Sounds good!
DOCTORS 3 (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/doctors_03/) - Watched season 1 and 2 and liked both. So I'll definitely catch this.
Ghost Writer (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/ghostwriter/) - Theme sounds serious. But I want to catch a few episodes anyways cos it has Mizukawa Asami.
Second Love, Utsukushiki Wana, Oniichan, gacha and Mondai no Aru Restaurant I'll probably just skip.

Did a quick watch. Subete ga F nya Naru (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/F/).

Not sure why I didn't watch it when it aired. I pretty much eat Takei Emi stuff for breakfast. :lol:
A bunch of 2ep-long cases. Each involving a different version of a "locked room" murder. Soooo.... Kindaichi without the school kids. :P

Hayami Akari's 'antagonyast' character pretty much steals the show. As the show progresses and the m0ore you get to know her, the m0ore crazy it gets.
Magata Shiki. A child computer programming genyaus, with intelligence considered close to the level of god, accused of murdering her parents when she was 14, judged innocent due to a mental disorder, then locked into a high-tech govt lab room that has been her prison for 15 years.

spoiler (last ep):
The way she got out was already super-crazy. But the face-off between Magata and nyashinosono at the end is a real mindfuck
Where Magata makes nyashinosono question if she is any different from Magata.
nyashinosono unsure if she is still sane. If everyone and everypurr she knows up to now was made up in her mind, to escape from the shock of seeing her parents die.
And even questions if she is actually still alive, or in some kind of limbo after committing suicide from the shock.

This season I'm watching Algernon ni hanataba wo, Tenshi to akuma and Do S deka. Only one episode aired but so far I like all of them!
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on May 02, 2015, 03:11:48 AM
Only checked out one show this season :P

Tenshi to Akuma (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/tenshitoakuma) ep01-02 - Cop girl gets transferred to the unsolved cases department (doing filing work), then partners with a lawyer to solve them.
Its pretty boring. Since it doesn't have anything extra. No special powers, no revenge backstory, and neither of the characters feel interesting. I'll probably watch one more episode and skip it if I still don't like it.

finishing off old dramas.

Marumaru Tsuma (http://www.ntv.co.jp/tsuma/) - It loses a bit of steam by the end. Maybe cos they gave away her secret so early.

Masshiro (http://www.tbs.co.jp/masshiro2015/) - More light-hearted then I originally thought. Workplace relations of nurses, but totally the opposite theme of First Class. :P Nurse dress is cute. :)
And its nice to see Takanashi Rin again. She's probably one of the only super sentai girls other than Kinoshita Ayumi that's successfully gone onto acting.

Zannen na Otto (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/zannen/) - Covering a lot of real-life problems, while staying light-hearted and enjoyable. great watch.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on May 03, 2015, 07:28:06 PM
2015 Spring.  :)

Must-watch:

Tenno no Ryoriban (http://www.tbs.co.jp/tenno_no_ryoriban) ep01 - Story of a country guy with a stubborn attitude for things that catch his interest. Goes to Tokyo to study cooking western dishes. And his road to becoming the chef for the Emperor of Japan.
Yummy food scenes. :)

I'm Home (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/imhome) ep01 - An elite workaholic is injured in a factory explosion and loses his memory. Recovering back to his former lifestyle turns out hard. Transferred to the 'trash' department of his company. Problems with his old divorced family. Basically having strangers as his new family, seeing white masks on their faces whenever he looks at them. Losing his short-term memory doesn't help much either.
Normal yet weird. nice watch.

Yamegoku (http://www.tbs.co.jp/yamegoku) ep01 - Yuko with shaggy hair, a food fetish, working in a secret police department, a yakuza cop guy, unnecessary slo-mo scenes. They should just get her to rip paper and call this SPEC 2! :D
Crazy. Cool. So interesting. Too bad I can only find 1 episode.

Algernon ni Hanataba o (http://www.tbs.co.jp/algernon2015) ep01-02 - Mentally challenged Yama-p chara, with the intelligence of a 6yo. Becoming a test subject of a breakthrough medicine to make him become smarter. Itsonly been used successfully on a mouse though.
If you were not emotionally touched in any of the scenes in the first episode, you are a log of wood.

good:
Tatakau Shoten Girl (http://www.ktv.jp/shoten) ep01 - Newcomer bookstore girl with ideas to sell books better, but totally clashes with the store rules. Her rash actions then causes fighting between her and the store's vice-manager.
Mayuyu! :heart:

Dr. Rintaro (http://www.ntv.co.jp/dr-rintaro) ep01 - A psychiatrist that uses surprising but effective ways to help people.
Great cast!

Yami no Banzosha (http://www.wowow.co.jp/dramaw/bansosha) ep01-02 - The story in an old set of manga sketches that was only recently discovered. Unfolds into a related old unsolved missing cases murder. An ex-police detective and an experienced manga expert then try to solve the case using the clues in the sketches, and preventing another new murder that is currently being planned.
The story is a little dark. But really interesting. Some nice pop-facts in the making of manga, and the manga industry.

doS Deka (http://www.ntv.co.jp/doS) ep01 - Sadistic girl cop.
Fun! :D

ok:
Renai Jidai (http://www.ytv.co.jp/renaijidai) ep01 - Divorced couple, finding new partners for each other. While still having feelings and hoping to get back together.
Sweet sweet romanc-y stuff "they're getting back toge... oh, no they're not... or maybe they are..." Scenes like that x300.

Ishitachi no Renaijijou (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/ishitachi_no_renaijijou) ep01 - Hospital drama. Doctors in love, but not in love, but want to be in love, but cannot be in love, but still love. Pretty much that.
Innocent sexy touch here and there every so often. This show is soooo... aimed at women. :lol:

Youkoso Wagayae (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/wagayae) ep01 - Family that suddenly continues to get attacked and their home vandalized for unknown reasons.
Its alright. But there have been so many of these "spook you out" "family matters" dramas, I'm getting a little tired of them.

Tenshi to Akuma (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/tenshitoakuma) ep01-03 - i still find kinda meh.

skipping:
REPLAY & DESTROY (http://replay-destroy.com) ep01 - Candid-like stories of a bunch of guys and a girl with a sharehouse.
It has Takayuki Yamada in it. A surefire rating for weirdness. Kinda 'Friends' meets 'stupid youtube clips' vibe. Too out there for me. :P

64 Rokuyon (http://www.nhk.or.jp/dodra/rokuyon) ep01 - Some kidnapping case thing.
Slow, boring, tiring. Honestly I only checked it cos Iriyama Anna was in it. And since she isn't in it much, I can totally skip it now.

Watching two dramas ATM

One classic and one currently airing series.

Great Teacher Onizuka with Takashi Sorimachi and Nanako Matsushima.
Fantastic series- and bonus is the real sparks between the two leads,
Who are now married with two daughters.

Also watching Tatakau! Shoten Girl, Mayu Waranabe's series,
currently at the 4th episode.... Mayu is a pro, and so far very interesting watch.

About to start on this older asadora drama from 2005 called Fight....

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08492.jpg)

.... as far as current ones go am going to watch about five of them but waiting for them to get closer to being finished except for this one, SHE,  which I've started and is fairly good but wish the episodes were longer than 20 minutes....

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08490.jpg)

.... recently wrapped up two of them, this one I would give a 8.5/10, another five episode drama from earlier this year called Genkai Shuraku Kabushikigaisha....

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08491.jpg)

.... and would give MG4 a rating of an 8/10.

2015 Summer early impressions.

must-watch:
Death Note (http://www.ntv.co.jp/drama-deathnote) ep01-02 - OMG! Its F'ing Death Note!!! :tama-laff: NomNomNom...
Yeah. Story is the same. L is kinda just a cheeky dood... And Light isn't as cool... And Sano Hinako, hot as she may be, is definitely not friggin awesome Toda "MisaMisa☆" Erika.
BUT ITS DEATH NOTE! Give it a try! You know you want to. :)

Koinaka (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/koinaka) ep nothing - Yeah. It ain't even on yet! hahaha~
A summer highschool teen romance story with Honda Tsubasa AND Fukushi Sota. They'll like have to try really hard to make me not love this! :lol:

Risk no Kamisama (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/risk_no_kamisama) ep01-02 - A special department of an umbrella corporation, which reacts to "company emergencies 'n threats".
"Hanzawa Naoki/Roosevelt Game" feels all over it. Buncha scheming old men in suits. Battle to get the troublemaker who doesn't feel sorry at all for their selfish actions, to cry like a baby and admit defeat.
Hey. Here's Toda Erika! :)

Tantei no Tantei (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/tantei) ep01-02 - Sasaki Rena (Kitagawa Keiko) finds her younger sister murdered by a stalker, who then kills himself straight afterwards, even after their family and police tried hiding her from him.
She later finds out the stalker hired a private detective to find her sister's location. She then joins a detective agency, and after a few years becomes an "anti-detective" detective, hoping to find the detective who led the stalker to her sister's death.
Action, suspense, plus a backstory with twists. And seeing Keiko's character handle all those threats (like a brawl with a guy planning a trap to drop her, or a car crash meant to murder her) then continuing work like they were just mosquito bites. :bow:

good:

Hatsumori Bemars (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/bemars/) ep01 - Schoolgirls forming a new baseball team to save their local park from being razed.
Yeah. I'm watching it only cos of Nogizaka46 too. Zukkyun!~ :heart:

Age Harrassment (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/age) ep01-02 - Takei Emi. Newcomer to a big company. Young, pretty and motivated to show that she will work hard. Joins general affairs department which handles menial tasks like pouring tea all day, cleaning toilets, etc... becomes used more and more just for her looks by the men of the company, while causing her female colleagues to become jealous and threatened. It all leads to a lot of misunderstandings and tension in the workplace.
"Awful Joke" guy is pretty funny, I think everyone wants to punch his face. :) A bad point is the other main character. Inamori Izumi who acts as Emi's Manager. She was typecast the exact same type of character in Tatakau! Shoten Girl. I think she can do so much more, its a total waste.
Still, the types of different workplace harassment get played on all the characters, making it pretty interesting.

ok:

Yokokuhan THE PAIN (http://www.wowow.co.jp/dramaw/yokoku-han) ep01 - mini-drama, from the movie, from the manga. A guy who puts on a newspaper mask. Goes online and informs the public of crimes that were not correctly punished by law, then letting the viewers judge. And if voted guilty, expose the criminal to everyone. A group which believes in this way of justice joins together to do the same.
Nice theme. But its a little too slow and boring for me.
Damn, Toda Erika is in a little of this too becoz of the movie... I was so going to skip it... :P

skip:

Hotel Concierge (http://www.tbs.co.jp/hotel_2015) ep01-02 - Nishiuchi Mariya as a Concierge on her first day. Learning the ropes, has a lot of heart, and fails a lot. Next to Miura Shohei who collectively handles everything like a pro, while letting her fail. Yeah. Seen a hundred of these shows. Not much of a hook.
And I think Shohei does cool/joking characters great, but not so much for cool-headed ones.

Dokonjyo Gaeru (http://www.ntv.co.jp/dokonjyo) ep01 - Talking anime frog on a shirt. Acchan is in it. This is me watching it --> :banghead:
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: Yoshino on August 23, 2015, 05:20:10 PM
There's going to be a few other current airing dramas which will be watched but just waiting for them to wrap up their seasons but have watched all the episodes so far for:

Hatsumori Bemars which has been okay but has slipped a tad, just way too predictable. :sweatdrop:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08761.jpg)

Koinaka has been fine and to be honest much better than I expected. :shocked:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08762.jpg)

An oldie from 2008 but have finally gotten around to viewing it for the first time, Puzzle, through three episodes it's been passable. :yawn:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08763.jpg)

Been a while since the last watch so once again viewing this, what more can you say about SPEC? 8)

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08764.jpg)

Planning on starting this today which is the second season of Zoku: Saigo Kara Nibanme no Koi, first season from 2012 is one of my top dramas ever. :O

Fall season seems to be much better then the Summer one, "Koinaka" ended up being one of the worst dramas ever. :bleed eyes:
Wish it was a bit more serious but so far "Okitegami Kyoko no Biboroku" has been an enjoyable watch through four episodes.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08847.jpg)

"Angle Heart" though has really been one serious series through two episodes.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08849.jpg)

"Siren" has been okay with the potential to be quite good, about to watch the third episode later.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08848.jpg)

And one oldie from early 2013, actually my fourth re-watch of "Shoten In Michiru no Mi no Uebanashi".

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip08850.jpg)

Post by: winner on November 05, 2015, 06:11:20 AM
Yeah. I thought Koinaka was going to be some fun teen summer break drama.
Instead they graduated in the first episode and it just turned into a sad snail love romp. so disappointed. Still haven't finished it... :banghead:

Not checked this season yet. :lol:
Okitegami Kyoko no Biboroku I wanted to watch. Maybe start it today. :)

Angel Heart I'm catching cos it was one of the only manga I actually bought a few issues of.
The episode about how Ryo turned into City Hunter was especially nice. I watched the anime of City Hunter, but didn't really know the backstory that much. Like why clients needed to write XYZ on the board in the anime, so that little bit was interesting.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on November 10, 2015, 03:34:03 PM
catching up on fall. :)

must-watch:
Okitegami Kyoko no Bibouroku (http://www.ntv.co.jp/okitegami/) ep01-05 - Cute ditsy Aragaki Yui, Cute unlucky guy Okada Masaki.
Genius detective Okitegami Kyoko has her memory reset whenever she goes to sleep. Literally giving her only one day to solve cases. Great fun watch. :heart:

Asa Ga Kita (http://www.nhk.or.jp/asagakita/) ep01-30 - Morning drama. Japan's changes during the Meiji period, seen through the eyes of two sisters Asa and Hatsu. With Hatsu being the perfect well-behaving girl. And the younger Asa being the hyperactive troublemaker of the family, who keeps asking why about everything.
Asa's straightforward character saves the family she gets married to, and leads to her going into various businesses. While Hatsu's marries into a strict family that pressures her more and more, yet she tries to persevere with them even in the worst of times. Both hoping to do what they can to defend their family. Really heartwarming stuff.

good:
Isan Souzoku (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/isansouzoku/) ep01-03 - A seemingly innocent young doctor marrying into a rich family built on a funeral planning business. The family members then all take actions against him and fight over the still-living grandpa's inheritance and will.

Samurai Sensei (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/samuraisensei/) ep01-03 - A samurai Takechi Hanpeita travelling 150 years forward in time to present day. Kamiki Ryunosuke's Sakamoto Ryoma is pretty funny. :P

Angel Heart (http://www.ntv.co.jp/angelheart/) ep01-04 - Just like the manga, it isn't as entertaining as City Hunter. CH's stories are normally really simple (save the client, get tricked, beat the bad guy, lose the girl), while AH has a lot more slow drama.
But like I said before, it does have some nice bits from the original story. And I liked the origin episode.

Itsuka Tiffany de Choushoku wo (http://www.ntv.co.jp/breakfast/) ep01-05 - Another comic adaption. Girls and food. genius. :)

ok:
Shitamachi Rocket (http://www.tbs.co.jp/shitamachi_rocket/) ep01-03 - Another "Hanzawa Naoki" wannabe. The story is good, but this style of telling it is starting to get stale. Its a little more light-hearted though.

5-9 Watashi ni Koi Shita Ikemen Sugiru Obousan (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/5ji9ji/index.html) ep01-03 - Romance/Comedy. Creepy temple priest stalker/kidnapper Yama-P.
Takanashi Rin's BL girl is so nice. should've just given her chara her own drama. :D

Prison School (http://prison-school.com/) ep01-02 - Since I cannot put it in a better way. This is what I commented before on the anime "lewd, dirty, disgraceful, rude and obnoxious. Everything the 15yo boy in me wants to watch." :lol:

Siren (http://www.ktv.jp/siren) ep01 - Detective drama, but unlike Okitegami Kyoko this one is way more thriller/mind games. Cold killer Kara trying to befriend detective Yuki before following out her plan, whatever it is. While Yuki's partner and love Shinobu begins to get suspicious of her.

skipping:
Seishun Tantei Haruya (http://www.ytv.co.jp/haruya/) ep01-02 - Shinkawa Yua's character repeatedly getting stalked and kidnapped. Super Mario College student Tamamori Yuta with his detective skills saves her while trying to solve cases.
Fell asleep twice watching the first episode. I tried. :roll:

2016 Winter stuff first impressions. :)

must-watch:
Sanadamaru (http://www.nhk.or.jp/sanadamaru/) ep01-02 - The new Taiga drama with Sakai Masato acting the life of Sanada Yukimura. I'm probably gonna follow it like all the past ones.
His father in the story, Sanada Masayuki, surprisingly had a lot of funny parts.

good:
Itsuka Kono Koi wo Omoidashite Kitto Naite Shimau (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/itsu_koi) ep01 - It hit all the points a classic romance drama should have. I'm curious how the story and both characters will turn out.

Otousan to Yobasete (http://www.ktv.jp/otosan/) ep01 - A comedy drama about a 51yo man and 23yo girl falling in love, trying to get her 51yo dad's permission to get married. Yeah, I'm totally using the laughs from this to balance all the sad emotions from watching Itsu Koi (above). :P

Higanbana (http://www.ntv.co.jp/higanbana/) ep01 - An all-female main cast detective drama. 1st episode was pretty solid.
Horikita Maki's character has the special power of channeling the crime area, to hear the sounds during the actual crime. Yeah, they must be running out of super powers to give main characters for solving crimes.

ok:
Himura Hideo no Suiri  (http://www.ntv.co.jp/himura/) ep01 - Another detective drama? But with professors doing the cops work? So it's Galileo? Whatever, I already have Lucifer filling the "smart-ass guy solving murders" spot. The story does get dark in some moments.

FRAGILE  (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/FG/) ep01 - Hospital drama.The end.
OK. In this one the doctor never sees the patient. That's kinda diffferent... Takei Emi doing the trainee doctor role... again...
Hey! Matsui Rena is in it! :heart:

Kaitou Yamaneko (http://www.ntv.co.jp/yamaneko/) ep01 - Really great main cast. Too weird for me though. :roll:

skipping:
Underwear (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/underwear/) ep01 - New girl working at a 'personally tailor-made' underwear shop. Kryptonite for men.
My limit watching Kiritani Mirei doing "Wow" expressions looking at underwear/ppl wearing underwear/underwear fabric = 1 episode.

Watashi o Hanasanaide (http://www.tbs.co.jp/never-let-me-go/) ep01-02 - A private kids boarding school with a secret for it existing. Way too slow/boring.

Never read the manga, watched the anime or
any of the previous live versions-

I am enjoying this series, the actors playing
Yagami Light (Masataka Kubota) and L (Kento Yamazaki)
have been doing a good job, especially in their scenes together.

Big shout out for both Mio Yuki as Near and
Hinako Sano as Misa Misa- they both get my attention
In their interpretation of their roles...

And special notice to Jiro Sato, who always
brings it to any role- just ask Rena Matsui!

L, Light, Near

探偵の探偵 / Tantei no Tantei (Detective versus Detective)

Watched this based on Winner san's referral above, and really enjoyed
this one. Keiko Kitagawa rocks this role royally, and Haruna Kawaguchi
turned in a fantastic performance.

Keiko's character is this fantastically fit and brave young woman who
is seeking to find the corrupt detective who set up the death of her younger sister
(Played in flashback scenes by Kyoko Yoshine).

Keiko's character fights like a lion, and has mad MacGuyver improvising skills,
but also is an extremely vulnerable character plagued with psychological issues.

Haruna's character starts off as a somewhat timid character with a very
submissive, get along to go along character, but gets hardened by the harsh
experiences she endures due, in part, to Keiko's recklessness.

Great overall cast, shoutout to veteran actor Yusuke Santamaria, who plays an arrogant rival detective,
and Takahiro Miura who plays a widowed cop with a young daughter who misses her mom.

And Mugi Kadowaki leaves a strong impression with her role
Towards the end of the series....
(http://picroda.jphip.com/japanese/jphip44143.jpeg)
Really a fine drama, worth a watch.

Keiko goes full MacGuyver

2016 spring.
Haven't really found any drama to get into this season.

good:
Juhan Shuttai! (http://www.tbs.co.jp/juhan-shuttai/) ep01-06 - A newcomer editor in the manga industry. A very positive drama, and takes a good look at some of the work needed to making a manga magazine.

Omukae desu (http://www.ntv.co.jp/omukaedesu/) ep01-04 - A guy that is suddenly able to see ghosts and Death gods (turning out to be guy in a pink rabbit costume and a kid. hehe) They then make him join them as a part-timer. Nice and fun.

ok:
99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi (http://www.tbs.co.jp/999tbs/) ep01-05 - Matsumoto Jun taking on cases with a 0.01 probability chance of having a dismissed truth. Solid drama but nothing that interesting.

skipping:
Dias Police ~ Ihou Keisatsu (http://www.dias-police.jp/) ep01 - Some kind of underground cop that maintains order within the illegal immigrant society. its interesting, but not what I'm into.

Yutori Desu ga Nani ka (http://www.ntv.co.jp/yutori/) ep01 - I just found it really boring.

2016 Summer stuff.  :)

good:
Ieuru Onna (http://www.ntv.co.jp/ieuru/) ep01-04 - Kitagawa Keiko's character as an ace real estate manager, using any way posible to sell houses. Watching her boss all the staff around gets pretty funny. :D

ON (http://www.ktv.jp/on/) ep01-02 - The cop show of the bunch. With Haru acting as a cop that has memorized every case file. She also has a dark urge to find out the culprits real reasons for committing their crime, often letting them continue and risking herself getting too deep.

Gu Ra Me!~Sori no Ryoriban~ (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/gurame/) ep01-05 - Food drama of the bunch. Gouriki Ayame as a chef for the Japan prime minister. Its basically a modern version of recent drama Tenno no Ryoriban.

Soshite Daremo Inakunatta (http://www.ntv.co.jp/soshitedaremo/) ep01-04 - And the tech suspense. Fujiwara Tatsuya as an IT guy that invents a system called "Miss Erase" that can delete and change digital details/existence of any person. Then it goes all Platinum Data. Running away from cops and the triad, not knowing if he can trust his friends or even his family. fun stuff. :)

Toki o Kakeru Shoujo (http://www.ntv.co.jp/tokikake/) ep01-05 - Summer love~~ Really cute and emotional school romance. Really glad I didn't skip it. :heart:

ok:
Koe Koi (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/koekoi/) ep01-05 - A schoolgirl falling in love with a classmate that has an attractive voice, but for an unknown reason wears a paper bag over his head all the time. I like it. :)

Sukinahito ga Irukoto (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/sukinahitogairukoto/) ep01 - Then the Summer teen romance. Cake chef girl gets fired, moves to Shonan to work at a small beach-side restaurant, and starts living with 3 hot brothers. I bet that happens alot IRL. :P

skipping:
Juken no Cinderella (http://www.nhk.or.jp/pd/juken/) ep01 - A girl and a cram school tutor. Feels just like Biri Gyaru just without the Gyaru. This had a movie in 2008, also based on a novel, so it actually came earlier. Its not bad, just not that interesting either.

Seisei Suruhodo Aishiteru (http://www.tbs.co.jp/seiseisuruhodo_love/) ep01-03 - So romantic its dumb. Jewelry promotion girl wishing to sell jewelry since she was a kid. Meeting rich young son of the company chairman that suddenly joins. Banging head on wall from the cliche-overkill. :banghead:

HOPE ~Kitai Zero no Shinnyushain~ (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/hope/) ep01 - Someone finding a job? too boring to even remember.

Pretty much skipped everything from 2017 Winter and Spring.

2017 Winter :)

must-watch:
Onna Joshu Naotora (http://www.nhk.or.jp/naotora/) ep01-27
Taiga drama with Shibasaki Kou. Been catching it weekly.
A girl that grows up to become a lord in the Sengoku period. Covering all that betrayal, kinda-love but kinda-responsibility, and all that sudden dying circumstances drama I eat up. Love it. :heart:

ok:
Super Salaryman Saenai-shi (http://www.ntv.co.jp/saenai/) ep01-10
Comedy where a simple salary guy is given superman-like powers. Paruru is in it. It was fun~

2017 Spring :thumbsup

must-watch:
CRISIS ~ Kouan Kidou Sousatai Tokusou-han (https://www.ktv.jp/crisis/) ep01-10
A secret 5-person specialist team tasked to take out high threats.
Great main cast. Story was really good too.
Throughout the show, the team doubt if what they're doing is actually right. As these "bad guys" who come from different circles, do extreme things like terrorism hoping to change the unfairness of the current society. It really takes a toll on them.
Also really great action/fighting scenes, a lot of them with the actors doing it themselves. The ep08 fight was surprisingly impressive. Where the team storm a cult, taking on like 100+ people during a 6-7minute fight scene all in one flowing shot (these guys must've saw Daredevil).

ok:
Chiisana Kyojin (http://www.tbs.co.jp/chiisanakyojin_tbs/) ep01-10
Another police drama, but using the Hanzawa Naoki formula again (they literally have some of the same actors doing the same role!). It has some awesome acting.
But yeah. The "good guys must do an impossible task in ??-hours to make the bad guy pay back 10x over, but ultimately not change anything for the better" formula is really starting to get stale.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on November 17, 2017, 07:51:52 PM
For the guys who still haven't watched the CRISIS ep08 fight scene I talked about in the above post. Check it here if you want.  :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ew1pANRkNhw

Back to normal drama watching.
Either I can't find anything that interests me past few seasons, or I'm just slowing down a lot. :P
Anyways. Went backwards to watch one of the Winter ones.

Good:
Okaasan, Musume wo Yamete Ii Desu ka? (http://www6.nhk.or.jp/drama/pastprog/detail.html?i=4147) ep01-08
Haru stars in this family drama. A mother being over obsessive and controlling with her daughter's life.
It doesn't go all scary or anything. Instead, it is very believable. Just a normal caring mother cranked up to 13. Some scenes get really emotional.
Oh yeah. Creepy human dolls randomly placed around house = not best idea. :lol:

One more show I watched.
I should note it does have some gore (nothing too sick, just around the level of a campy vampire movie).

Good:
Tokyo Vampire Hotel (https://www.amazon.co.jp/TOKYO-VAMPIRE-HOTEL/dp/B07215J5M4) ep01-09
Starting off with a basic story of a girl finding out she has some weird destiny, while two groups of vampires try to capture her because her birthday is coming.
Then a few episodes in it'll get to the hotel, where the vampires are holding a dating party for humans. The show literally turns into The Rocky Horror Picture Show, where the humans are told its the end of the world, with the hotel being the only safe haven. The vampires then force the humans to pair up and make love babies. :roll: It turns into a bunch of funny/awkward sex scenes with hotel staff vampires watching.  :lol:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09614.jpg) (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09615.jpg)

In the last few episodes it goes into the aftermath. The social structure of the remaining survivors gets pretty interesting.

Here's a trailer for the show:

Post by: winner on January 11, 2018, 07:24:40 PM
Been watching a bunch of stuff from here and there.

SP movies

must-watch:
Yonimo Kimyona Monogatari Spring and Fall SP. Both were awesome as always. :wub:

BORDER Shodo/Shokuzai (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/border/). 3 TV movies.
Shodo is 2 prequel episodes. Focusing on Haru's character, still just a Uni professor's assistant, taking on a student murder case in a rural city. It finally leads her to joining Forensics and meeting Ishikawa Ango (Oguri Shun).
Shokuzai tells what happens after the 2015 drama. Oguri Shun's "talk to ghost victims" cop character battling his inner demons and a literal demon. :lol:
The 2015 drama was excellent. Same with these.



Next up. Dramas

2017-2018 Winter. So much manga turned anime turned live action!
must-watch:
Video Girl Ai (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/videogirl2018/) ep01
Nishino Nanase fan-service scenes guaranteed!
I watched the anime when I was really young. Don't remember much of it anymore. Just that I really liked it. And Noriko Sakai sang the ED.  :oops:
And it had some really touching scenes. Hope this will do just as well in that area.

good:
Saki - Achiga-hen: episode of side-A (http://www.saki-project.jp/) ep01-04
Girls playing Mahjong.
I really like how they made the characters actions so comic. Not comical (funny), but comic book like detailed things they each do. It makes the show much more fun.
Like the main character running past a shrine, then coming back to give a bow. Little stuff like that. :oops:
Hamabe Minami, who acted the main character Saki, coming back to act her sister is perfect. :D

ok:
Akagi (https://www.bs-sptv.com/akagi/) ep01-04
Guys... playing Mahjong
A kid playing Mahjong for his first time, taking on the yakuza and growing up into a legend.
I watched this gambling anime a few months ago. So far it has captured the feel pretty well. Too bad it only goes to ep05, then another arc airing 1/2 year from now. I'll forget about it by then...
It focuses a lot on the actual Mahjong and serious gambling tactics, unlike Saki which focuses on making cute characters, so Akagi might feel a little boring for some ppl.


2017 Fall
good:
Ima kara Anata wo Kyouhaku Shimasu (http://www.ntv.co.jp/kyohaku/) ep01-09
A guy and his team, acts as professional hired "threaten"ers. Eventually completing the request while also helping ppl. Just think City Hunter.  :)
Fujioka Dean and Takei Emi is really good in bringing out the comedy. Paruru too!
Mr. Nietzsche guy is in this one. :)

2017 Summer
ok:
Bokutachi ga Yarimashita (https://www.ktv.jp/bokuyari/) ep01-10
Three schoolboys and their dropout senior set up some prank bombs in their neighboring school, full of juveniles that always pick on them, to try take revenge.
The bombs surprisingly causes a huge explosion, killing some of the juveniles. Making the four of them wanted criminals on the run.
Their continued inner struggle with guilt was one of this shows strongest points.
Funny. Mr. Nietzsche guy is in this one too. :D

Kurokawa no Techo (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/kurokawanotecho/) ep01-08
Takei Emi again. A cabaret girl that blackmails men for money to buy her dream club.
It actually starts off pretty good, blackmailing creepy guys is fun. But by halfway it starts getting a little shallow.
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?

I watched FINAL CUT ep1 and 2. ( ^∀^)
It is little heavy but interesting. ( ✌︎'ω')✌︎
https://www.ktv.jp/finalcut/index.html
Title: Re: What drama are you currently watching ?
Post by: winner on January 27, 2018, 11:40:58 AM
Checking more of the 2018 Winter stuff. :)

must-watch:
Anone (https://www.ntv.co.jp/anone/) ep01-03
Teenage girl living at a net cafe + working in a decease scenes cleanup crew. Tries to find her past while getting into a lot of trouble.
The pacing is a little slow. Maybe because its style is actually much closer to a movie than a drama.
But the overall quality of the story, colorful characters and the great acting is blowing me away. :thumbup

BG Shinpen Keigonin (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/bg/) ep01
Team created to provide bodyguard hiring services. Cool KimuTaku veteran bodyguard guy. 8)2
Drama, action, shady chara backstories. All stuff I like. (Man, I miss SP)

good:
Kakegurui (http://kakegurui.jp/) ep01-02
High school gambling yay! :P
New transfer student Jabami Yumeko taking on the student council's games, outwitting their trickery and cheating.
Great to see more of Hamabe Minami and Morikawa Aoi. Its little bit tamer than the anime. Still find it lots of fun!
Maybe cos I liked the anime tho. Most people will probably just find this drama ok at best.

UNNATURAL (http://www.tbs.co.jp/unnatural2018/) ep01-02
A special team called UDI that investigates unnatural death cases. So many special teams this season!
Police forensics stuff. Solid show. Ishihara Satomi is in it!

CHASE (http://amazon-chase.jp/) ep01-04
Honda Tsubasa (tv station AD) and Otani Ryohei (freelance reporter) look into five seemingly related murder cases of young girls, going back as far as 27 years with a suspect arrested. Further investigating they find more and more likely the suspect may have been falsely accused all these years, while the real culprit may still be out there.
The chemistry between the pair is really good. Wonder how the story will all pan out.
Might take a long time to get to the truth though. It already has a 2nd chapter/season planned?! :nervous

ok:
Repeat (http://www.ytv.co.jp/repeat/) ep01
Eight people given a chance to go back 10 months in time, letting them change their mistakes.
Its good. But honestly, mainly watching for sadist Paruru scenes. :roll:

FINAL CUT (https://www.ktv.jp/finalcut/) ep01-03
Kazuya Kamenashi (highschool student) who's mother (a kindergarten teacher) commited suicide after a girl in her care was kidnapped/killed and have her being accused for it. Years later he goes on a revenge trip on the media who hid details of the case, while also looking for the real killer.
So its kinda like Chase, just a little less serious n' more campy.

Segodon (https://www.nhk.or.jp/segodon/) ep01-03
Taiga drama this time focusing on Saigo Takamori. Instant seal of quality.
So far I'm not that into it yet. Maybe after they build up the characters more.
I'll surely watch it till the end. Probably twice to catch all the stuff I miss from their heavy Satsuma dialect!

Kansayaku Nozaki Shuhei (http://www.wowow.co.jp/dramaw/nozaki/) ep01
Another Hanzawa Naoki formula drama with a great cast. Nothing exciting, but I'll watch it.

skip:
Momi Keshite Fuyu ~ Wagaya no Mondai Nakatta koto ni (http://www.ntv.co.jp/momifuyu/) ep01
Man this show. The jokes are awful. The characters are unlikable. The story... is there a story? :banghead:
I'll probably give it one more episode just in case they make some miracle. Then maybe just fast forward to all the Haru scenes for the rest.
This show is just sad. Like dying puppy on the sidewalk sad.

Double Posted

昼顔 - 平日午後3時の恋人たち- / Hirugao - Heijitsu Gogo 3 ji no Koibito tachi
(English title: Hirugao: Love Affairs in the Afternoon)

Very interesting look at Marital troubles that cause people to have affairs that in turn lead
to extreme Marital troubles.

The writers stayed away from condemnation, but also didn’t whitewash the reality of
the Sh_tstorm that affairs eventually create (Mari Yaguchi, anyone?)

Michiko Kichise & Aya Ueto
(http://picroda.jphip.com/japanese/jphip59601.jpeg)

The two leading ladies were excellent in revealing their characters, but
must issue this  disclosure: at no time did Aya Ueto appear in this outfit:

But what you did see in this 2014 drama were great performances by a
superb cast:

Starting up the Spring dramas. watching all the cop shows again...  :nervous

must-watch:
Black Pean (http://www.tbs.co.jp/blackpean_tbs/) ep01-03
A hospital drama with Ninomiya Kazunari as the usual arrogant loner main chara with mad surgery skillz.
Putting it so high up cos Ninomiya is perfect doing these sly fox roles. The cast looks pretty solid too.

good:
Miss Sherlock (https://www.happyon.jp/static/miss-sherlock/) ep01
Eccentric weirdo Sherlock (Takeuchi Yuko) consultant helping the police solve crimes.
Traditional crime solving drama. She's creepy.  :)

Mikaiketsu no Onna - Keishichou Bunsho Sousakan (http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/mikaiketsu/) ep01
Haru as a police detective that gets transferred to the basement of the police HQ, storage room holding documents for unsolved cases.
Meeting Suzuki Kyoka, who's a super expert at text deciphering. She can literally solve cases just from looking at text on documents.
Wait a sec. Girl transferred to the basement. one arm in a sling?!! Darn... its not a sequel to SPEC... :cry:

Gakeppuchi Hotel (https://www.ntv.co.jp/gakehote/) ep01-02
A hotel fallen from its grace, with its staff going lazy. Guy comes in to try and save it.
Toda Erika and Hamabe Minami both in it. Wow!~ :heart:

ok:
Signal - Choki Mikaiketsu Jiken Sosahan (https://www.ktv.jp/signal/) ep01-04
A profiler finds a walkie talkie that magically lets him talk to a cop in the 1990's. Tries to solve cases together and preventing deaths in the past before they happen.
Pacing is a little slow. So it might feel a little flat. Still, I'm enjoying it.

Seigi no Se (https://www.ntv.co.jp/seigi-no-se/) ep01
A public prosecutor with a strong sense of justice.
Just picture Hero, with Yoshitaka Yuriko as the newcomer (Matsu Takako/Kitagawa Keiko) character. And without a KimuTaku. Basically that.

skip:
ConfidenceMan JP (https://www.fujitv.co.jp/confidenceman_jp/) ep01
A threesome of con artists that try to trick yakuza bosses and rich evil businessmen.
Its actually really good, with Nagasawa Masami in it. Just a little too comical for me, I might've kept watching of the show was more serious.

DAISY LUCK (http://www.nhk.or.jp/drama10/daisyluck/) ep01
Following 4 young women who were childhood friends.
Too "everyday life" for me. dropping it.
Title: Quartet

Some more random shows from this season, and last year.

good:
Maji de Kokai Shitemasu (http://drama-night.com/tbs/majide-kokai) ep01-05end
Short drama. Takeda Rena and Iitoyo Marie are uni students that join a one-month naval training course that is mostly made up of guys.
Its super-cute, especially Iitoyo Marie's airhead full charge ahead character.

Hana Nochi Hare (http://www.tbs.co.jp/hana_hare/) ep01-07
Follow up to Hana Yori Dango. Just expect the same romancy/corny comedy F4 stuff.
Its enjoyable. But main charas are a little less charismatic/likeable than OG F4, which hurts the show a little.
Getting OG F4 MatsuJun and Oguri Shun doing guest spots was nice. :thumbsup

Hyaku Man En No Onna-tachi (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/100man/) ep01-12end
Author guy suddenly getting a bunch of women living in his house, paying him 1-million yen each month.
Only speed-watched the Matsui Rena bits last year. Watching it normally, I found it was actually really good.
Each of the women have their own motives to live with him. Starting from a harem dream it quickly turns into a crazy life and death situation for all of them.

ok:
Itsumademo Shiroi Hane (http://tokai-tv.com/shiroihane/) ep01-08end
Shinkawa Yua entering a nursing program.
No crazy gifted doctor stuff like most hospital dramas, it focuses more on actual nurse training and their hardships. So it might feel a little too slice-of-life.

Post by: winner on August 14, 2018, 05:01:56 AM
Hitting some of those 2018 Summer dramas. :)

Must-watch:
Zero: Ikkaku Senkin Game (http://www.ntv.co.jp/0/) ep01-05
Based on the manga by Fukumoto Nobuyuki (Akagi, Kaiji), it has the same theme of 'competitive gambling' and 'solving life-threatening puzzles'.
Zero (a math teacher) and many others get thrown into a "game" by the evil multi-trillionaire Zaizen. Pitting the competitors against each other to win one trillion yen and the title of "king". Exciting maths!  :panic:

Majimuri Gakuen (http://www.ntv.co.jp/majimuri) ep01-05
AKB48 schoolgirls beating people up again. Yay!!! :P

Good:
Dele (http://dele.life/) ep01-02
A foolhardy guy gets recruited to a company run only by a pair of siblings, with the brother being a computer whiz that requires a wheelchair.
Running a 24-hour vitality check service on customers. If found dead, the brother deletes all digital data belonging to the customer.
The new guy starts questioning these cases, teaming up with the non-interested brother to hold off deleting and instead investigate them.
Its a nice crime drama, just with neither of them being cops.

Good Doctor (http://www.fujitv.co.jp/gooddoctor/) ep01-02
A newly graduated doctor that has photographic memory but also a heavy ASD problem when communicating with people.
Basically everybody treats him like trash. While he has the knowledge and medical theories to save lives, its mostly high-risk and ignored by his co-workers.
Usual hospital drama. But its really solid.

Maji de Koukai Shitemasu: 2nd Season (https://www.mbs.jp/majikoukai/) ep01-02
More naval training.
Iitoyo Marie gets a cool-headed superior officer that literally finds faults in everything she does.
Takeda Rena gets transferred to office work, with her wish to get back to being a ship mechanic TBD.
More cute and fun!

Cheer Dan ep01-03 (http://www.tbs.co.jp/program/cheerdan_2018.html)
A bunch of schoolgirls trying to revive the school's cheerleader club.
Also fun!

OK:
Survival Wedding  (https://www.ntv.co.jp/survival-wedding)ep01-02
Haru's character quits her magazine job and prepares for marriage. But its cancelled when she finds the guy cheated on her.
She begs for her old job back, but is instead moved into a super-popular fashion magazine. The twist, the chief editor requires her to find a new guy and marry him in 6 months or she'll be fired.
Haru is cute with the "Devil Wears Prada" type comedy done with her boss. But this show is literally the 2 things I'm not into. Fashion and stupid romance.

Tomei na Yurikago (https://www.nhk.or.jp/drama10/yurikago/) ep01
A newcomer nurse facing the harshness working at a local women's clinic. Her first task is assisting an abortion, then a new birth in the same room straight afterwards.
Its way serious and a little heavy.

GIVER Fukushu no Zoyosha (http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/giver/) ep01-04
Hired killers that specifically handle client's grudges and help them in taking revenge.
A rehash on the "Uramiya Honpo" theme, its also a midnight drama. Its watchable, but don't expect too much.

Sick’s Jonosho (http://www.tbs.co.jp/sicks_specsaga) ep "I have no f'ing idea!" :sweatdrop:
Hey. SPEC actually does have a sequel! and it started in April!
Toda Erika and that bald cop guy aren't around anymore though. {cry} Its still totally loopy~ {yay!} but also loopy in a bad way {frown}
Whats worse. The episodes come out super crazy. Each episode is cut into 4-5 parts, then aired weekly in a monthly episode style on paid-tv. And they do not have a planned total episode count [Basically you watch 10min bits each week, or it'll take a year or two for it to complete. it suuuuucks.]
But it is more SPEC.... I'm happy for that at least. And the Mano Erina SP that's coming soon.

Zettai Reido (Season 3) (https://www.fujitv.co.jp/zettaireido/) ep01-05
Sequel to the crime drama with Ueto Aya, switching her and putting in Honda Tsubasa as the lead and a new team.
I have no idea why but they turned it into a really boring Person of Interest show... (testing a supercomputer system that marks out potential murder criminals). Its just sooo slow....
I don't remember the old show that much, but it definitely wasn't this mediocre.

A teen forced to join the school's secret Investment Club.
I really tried getting into this. But it just kept getting more and more boring. By ep04 I started falling asleep watching it.
