You can pretty much find it anywhere... ラッキー is a pretty common term, and I'm sure it's popped up quite a few times in hundreds of Dramas...

But, off the top of my head, Toda Erika is someone who has used it recently. I'm sure Sato Eriko and Mizuki Arisa have been guilty of it lately, as well.

looks like everyone has made some good calls, so far.

That's it, everyone is evil... even the old lady. :P

Another good episode tonight... and again, the possibilities grow.

Is she there on exchange or is she actually from California? As far as "impressing" her, the only way you're going to do that is by being yourself. Sure, you can put on an act, play prince charming... but, once she finds out it isn't the real you, the fairytale is over. But, they way to a woman's he...

I think Yousuke K. is negelected because of his mental lapses, attempted suicide, etc.

I remember a few years ago they tried to hype up his younger brother... but, that didn't really go over too well.

Brilliant actor, though.

I missed this ... had to cater to an IFSEA meeting last night, so I got home way too late. Cash-money millionaires love to talk... Anyhows, unless something comes up, I promise to encode and upload next week's show. I did, however, download the version that was upped here. Fun episode... the son, th...

I'm surprised to see the Haterade being spit at Yamashita Tatsuro I guess you could see some subtleties concerning her blindness... first off, her clothes... what blind person would wear heels like that? Especialy in Japan, blind people wear thin soled shoes so they they can feel the bumps in the cr...

I caught it last night and I was impressed... especially with Karina's acting... Usually, whenever I see a Japanese actor, I always see their "name" and not their character. While watching, I didn't once see "Karina"... I actually saw her character... Her mother is great, as well. ... And yea, the e...

Yep, that's me.

You know, this is the first Takeuchi Yuko drama I've watched... she really gives off a Tokiwa Takako vibe (my favorite).
