[Discussion] Yamegoku: Yakuza Yamete Itadakimasu

Postby dhisashi » Thu Jun 18, 2015 2:32 pm

Since there are no English subs for Yamegoku: Yakuza Yamete Itadakimasu I have yet to watch any episodes but I have downloaded 9 episodes from NYAA.

Anyway my question to those of you who understand Japanese and have viewed some of this Jdrama is "Is this a decent series?"

The viewership ratings are not high but AsianWiki shows Current user rating: 99 (29 votes) which is about as high as I have ever seen there for a series.

If it is a worthwhile view I will take the trouble of using the untimed Japanese subs and machine translating them to watch it.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

:scratch: {I probably will do the machine subs for episode 1 just to check it out myself}

It's a good series and I personally like it a lot. One of the relatively underrated series with the currently ending season. I am really impressed with the performance of Oshima Yuko here as she plays a very stoic lead, which I'm not really that used to when usually seeing her in AKBingo variety show episodes.

A big factor why it has a low rating is that it has the same timeslot as that of KimuTaku's JDrama, I'm Home. I'm not sure if AsianWiki's user rating is reliable though, so I would rather wait for like TV Drama Awards - http://dorama.info/drama/d_award.php?awd=1&mode=1

The parts I think that would be lost in translation would be the Yakuza jargons everywhere haha Those are the ones that gave me a hard time whenever I'm watching it with Japanese subs :P But yeah, it's cool somebody picks up this JDrama :) I personally was planning to fansub this, but kinda dismissed the idea as I have a lot on my plate if I would go solo again.

Easily the worst drama that season lol. Overracting etc. I was shocked in how the lead female 'actress' (dhe is not proper actress) has always overacted and has yet to improve her acting since Angel Bank after she ruined the Kaeru no Oujosama. Asian wiki isnt that reliable and the votes are below 50 in number instead of 100+.
Too bad because the other supporting cast is even stronger in acting and presence than the female lead. I recommend Ono Machiko's recent gangster drama for more solid story and acting by Ono Machiko. Well, ono machiko has always been praised there in terms of acting. The story is not the best, but at least much better than yamegoku. A waste of good supporting casts because of poor story and female lead 'act' instead of proper acting.

my name should have been nomihodai, but I either learned it wrong when I was in Japan or remembered it wrong when I chose my name for d-addicts :D
