Character Descriptions

Tamaki, Tanihara, DAIGO -- That's three of my favorite men in one show. I''m not complaining about Matsuda Shota either. :wub:

I'm not sure if you've heard of this before, but since BREAKERZ (DAIGO's band) is doing tours during the filming of Love Shuffle, Tamaki gave DAIGO "Throat Coat" as a present. It's a product to help protect the throat/ease throat pain.

Aww, Tamaki is so nice. :wub:

Been a fan of Yoshitaka Yuriko since watching 'Noriko's Dinner Table', so even though I more often than not despise Japanese comedy, I'll probably end up watching this. The plot seems interesting enough, just hope they don't spoil it with excessive amounts of inane humour... :unsure:

I hope you do pick this up Querbeet, you did a really great job on Innocent Love (being the only drama subbed by your group that I have watched as of yet). I wish I could help you out with needing a translator, but afraid that my Japanese won't be up to the challenge before I begin studying there, which unfortunately will be the final year of my masters. I kinda assume that will be a busy time; from what I know of Japanese culture so far, more than likely much more so than if I were to finish my studies at home! Oh well, what can you do? :roll

This would definitely be my #1 drama choice to follow every week for next season!!! :cheers: Tamaki! Shota! Tanihara! DAIGO! I love all the guys!!! Too bad, I only like Kanjiya Shihori among the girls. Don't care much abt Karina, and I don't know the other two, Yoshitaka Yuriko and Kojima Hijiri. Can anyone post more closeup pictures of these two? And what dramas has they been in? I want to know more abt them!

The scriptwriter is Nojima Shinji, who has written many popular dramas. And this one is a romantic comedy!! The last time he wrote romantic comedy was Golden Bowl, and I loved that drama ALOT!!! So I'm really looking forward to this drama!

I guess, Tamaki and Karina will appear in Brunch, Jan 10th? And since they're the leads, Tamaki and Karina would obviously end up together, no? :roll

I hope Shihori hook up with either Shota or DAIGO at the end :P She'll make a cute couple with either two.

Yoshitaka Yuriko, born in July 22, 1988. I've only seen her in Ashita no Kita Yoshio(definitely should check that drama out. It's quite funny and sad). She also star in Snakes and Earrings as the lead actress. I don't think she's that popular yet but she sometimes reminds me of Korean singer, BoA. Other than that, I don't really know much about her.

Image

Image

Overall, I think the actresses in this drama are not that popular yet or their just on the rise to popularity. Though, I'm not so sure about Kojima Hijiri since she's a lot older than the rest of the actress and has star in older films back in the days so I don't know much about her status. Karina is getting more recognize through her acting since Daisuki. So I'm glad that she was cast in this drama.

About the plot, for sure Karina is going to end up w/ Tamaki. Both are the main leads or unless something happens, which I doubt it. I'm thinking Yoshitaka Yuriko might end up w/ Matsuda Shota but I really don't mind if he ends up w/ Kanjiya Shihori because she did guest star in HYD2 as his childhood crush. It'll be so cute if they did end up.

Postby Aevenai » Fri Jan 16, 2009 5:27 am

I love his shorter hair, especially when he played Chiaki, hehe. He does look older with longer hair, but I don't think that is the only thing that is making him look older. Is it me or is Tamaki Hiroshi skinnier than he was when he was in the show Nodame Cantabile? He doesn't look as healthy and youthful as he did before. :cry: The lines on his face is more apparent because he is too skinny especially for his 5'9 height. I wonder what is up with him. :unsure: I hope he gains a bit more weight to look the way he did before he lost weight. :mrgreen: But anywayz...Is Love Shuffle really on TBS in the United States? Or is it different?

I agree that Tamaki is now waaaaaaay too skinny. He really should gain more weight!

As for Matsuda Shota, I gotta admit I was never interested in him and kinda wondered why so many ppl like him. But now I think I understand :P After watching the SP ep, I could see that this guy is cho cool :D And yeah, short hair suits him better!

I agree with you guys 100% :salut: I'm glad I'm not the only one who feel this way. Tamaki is way too skinny now and he look old. I wish he'll put some weight back and return to the suave/cool Chiaki senpai hahaha....

About Shota...I just love...love...LOVE his new hairdo. He definitely look much better in here than during his Hana Dan/Liar Game days.

Haha, the elevator scene was funny!! Episode 1 was pretty good, but not as funny as I expected. But I think things will get much more interesting starting next week, as the Love Shuffle has begin. I love all the characters, except for that old married woman >_< They should've get prettier and likeable actress for her character.

Will definitely tune in next week!

Watched ep 1 today, it was SO GOOD. Tamaki is fantabulous as usual, and this is the first time I'm seeing Karina in a leading role but she's amazing. I think the guys are all solid, the other girls besides Karina need to develop further as characters befor I can say either way, since they were only briefly introduced in episode 1. I'm betting this will be my favorite drama this season.

Favorites so far?

All the DAIGO love aside, I really liked Yukichi. I thought the whole Aihiru mistaking him for a waiter was sweet. I think I'd root for this character the most.

Kei and Ojiro's scenes were pretty funny too. I like it when they interact. :D

I thought the first ep was pretty good (what I understood anyways lol), but the atmosphere of the show grosses me out. The ABBA music, the way most of the characters come off, the dim lighting...i feel like I just walked into a skeezy lounge lol. Next week's ep looks good.

OMG :crazy:

what the hell happened to Tamaki???!!!!! he looks SO SO SKINNY, his face enough is anorexic to me! where has the healthy handsome Chiaki senpai gone to? (i know this isn't Nodame) but seriously, someone PLEASE FEED HIM!!!

i didn't watch the whole episode yet, just few minutes (browsing thru) and the moment he appeared, i was shocked. he looked so OLD. even for a late twenties person.

On the other hand, I really like Shota's hair in here! :wub:

Episode 2 was equally awesome!! I think this is gonna turn out to be a solid show...

[spoiler]The scenes with Matsuda Shota and Karina together in the photography studio and his apartment cooking were amazing -- he's way too smooth at getting her to open up about her brother... and yet there seems to be no romantic spark (well duh, since she has to end up with Tamaki...) Also the bar "fight" was ridiculous and amazing. But I have to say my favorite thing is how they have started having all the pajama parties in the entryway on their floor, that's so great...[/spoiler]

However, one gripe. Does anyone else find Kanjiya Shihori (Mei) as boring as I do?

I finished watching the 2nd ep and at first I thought this might be a Room Of King drama, although Hiro :wub: was in it I didn't really finish watching all of it as I didn't find it all that great. But this drama however, it really caught my interest. I really thought the whole "Love Shuffle" concept was an interesting idea and I can't wait to see how it all plays out. ^ I don't really mind Mei but for me I can't seem to like Kojima Hijiri(Reiko), I'm not sure if it's her acting or if it's just her playing that character. Perhaps if it was some other actress playing Reiko I wouldn't care as much :-( , sounds so mean >.< . Maybe I'll find more interest in her as the drama progresses, who knows ;) I can't wait for the next ep. though!! :D

I really wonder people's guess about who will end up with who?

Any guess? Do you think that any original couple will make it till the end?

Mine guess is:
-------------------------
Kei - Airu
Ojiro - Mai
Yukichi - Kairi
Masato - Reiko

That's my guess too^^ But there's also a possibility for Ojiro-Kairi, and Yukichi-Mei, based on what I read on Ojiro's character description in the official web...

It is also a great possibility. Maybe characters will match better this way.

Anyway, since no original couple was nominated as candidate then the moral of the story is then:

"The love by your side is not your destined love, Let's shuffle"

lol

I just finished watching the 3rd ep, and [spoiler]when I saw the Kiss between Matsuda Shota & Tamaki Hiroshi my eyes were like this :w00t: . I couldn't believe it was lip to lip and the expression on Hiroshi's face and what he said after the kiss was priceless. :lol . I also agree with yanie that there might be a possibility between Ojiro-Kairi, and Yukichi-Mei. So I guess Reiko and that Psychologist Masato might end up together, I actually think that they will work out well together :-) And the previews for the next episode were so good I can't wait to see it!![/spoiler]

I just finished watching the first episode with english subs, and while it was a little slow - it wasn't bad at all. So, I skipped to episode four and it seems like it is one of those shows with slow pacing that is rather good. I actually really enjoyed the couples that had been shuffled together for episode four.


[spoiler]I wonder if these four couples are the ones that will be together in the end? I kind of hope so, at least because I like O/K together. She seems like a very sad girl, and it's fairly clear that his 'playboy' 'tude is somewhat of an act.[/spoiler]


I look forward to seeing where this is going.

Preview for Ep5 in this one is much more interesting than the one at the end of Ep4. Ep4 was definitely the BEST episode so far, but seem like Ep5 becomes more interesting!

[spoiler]Omg!! She licked Oujiro's face!!! :shocked:[/spoiler]

After I saw that scene... ahh, yappari Nojima Shinji's character da naa... ^_^

Ah, I want Ojiro and Kairi like a fat kid wants cake. :lol (How late 90s and corny). But, stll - I love them together. Someone mentioned the character bios on the site gave hints to who might end up with who. Can anyone translate those?

raven_frost has done that here: http://jdramas.wordpress.com/2009/01/07/love-shuffle/

Actually only Oujiro's intro that gives hints... well, not necessarily hint who he ends up with but, more of a hint on who he has interest in and that's already obvious in Ep4^^

Oh, thank you for that. :D I wish it were Friday, I want to see where this is going for everyone involved. Though, I do wonder what they'll do for the next nine-eleven episodes.

Thanks for the info. I feel like everything is going to end within 3 months and then that's when they'll end up w/ their destined one. For example, Reiko's husband is out of town and is coming back in 3 months which is why she's participating in the love shuffle. Kairi's b-day is in 3 months so she promise to live for the time being. Kei and Mei called off their wedding before 3 months. IDK.. but I feel like the "3 months" is probably a keyword too.. to the drama as well.. just my opinion.

Enjoy the first episode and liked most of the characters.

Anyways about that character that called off her wedding I think I understand why she did, the guy he was going to married seems to be more concern about losing he's high/rich living without her he loses he's job and expensive apartment my guess is that she thinks that he really doesn't love him and is just with her for the high class living. So she enter this game to test him if he truely loves her also would explain why she doesn't want to tell him why she call of the wedding.

Really? The way I see it, Usami Kei loves Mei alot. And its proven more in the following eps. And Mei loves him too. She kept saying it was all because Usami lost his shines ever since he started working in the big company. I still don't understand what she means though. Esp. after seeing Ep5 preview...

I agree with someone who said this before... Mei is such a boring character. I love Kanjiya Shihori, so its such a pity she got a boring role :-(

I agree with you. It's pretty clear that Kei loves Mei. It wouldn't matter to him if she lived in a cardboard box. I do think he feels a little uneasy, though. Because her father is paying for his apartment and what not. But, if anything else - Kei wants Mei. [spoiler]The preview for episode five seems to prove, to me anyway, that he's willing to go on his own to win her back.[/spoiler]

But, why Mei keeps saying he's lost "his shine" is beyond me. Maybe it's her polite way of saying she liked him better when he had a lesser job? Maybe she wanted someone 'below her' in station and is depressed that Kei's raising in the ranks? Only, she doesn't understand that herself.

She is somewhat annoying and boring, isn't she? I'm not sure what it is, but the character isn't working for me. Maybe once I get subs I'll understand her more, but so far I can leave or take her.

In another Ep5 preview I saw:
[spoiler]Mei found out Kei quit his job in the company and Mei was upset, "You think that's what I want!??"[/spoiler]

So yeah... I really don't get her.

I'm sure with the subs it will be clearer, but at this point, Mei is a character that really bothers me. Every episode ends with me thinking: Okay Mei, what do you want? :x

Episode four totally made me a Ojiro and Kairi fan. I like that [spoiler]he can't read her like he can the others. She made him mad and upset, all within the space of a day. He respects and likes the other women in the shuffle, but Oujiro honestly seems to have no idea what to think of Kairi and that must make him interested.[/spoiler]

Maybe because it's NOT a girl!!!!!!
That would be soooooooo great. And that would explain why Reiko was so much into conquering Kikurin.
But really there is no way everyone will find a partner in this game (unless some other people appears).

You know, I'm with you. I don't think everyone should find romantic love in this shuffle. They've all become fond of one another and formed friendships, but I don't think everyone is meant to fall in love with another member of the shuffle. I think the shuffle will actually open everyone's eyes and show them what they really want and how they really feel about those around them and themselves. Yes, I can see one or two romances forming, but I also see several of the characters becoming stronger and all of the characters are slowly working out the issues that have been keeping them back. That really, is what the Love Shuffle, is all about.

I saw the 4 eps, subbed in viikiii, and this is the freshest drama for the last 6 months. The Love shuffle was exciting. Now It's more interesting what is to come. Hm...

But I think that the best couples were AiAi and Ojiro and Reiko and Tachibana. The chemistry between them is fantastic!
