I watched the first episode--I must say that I enjoyed it quite a bit. I wasn't expecting much, so I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality. I'll definitely be following it 'til the end.

^ Haha. That's funny. :lol He does look quite different with the make-up/hairstyles and whatnot, and does play the characters very differently. I think he's quite a good actor. The same goes for Ohgo Suzuka--her acting is just so natural. On the whole, I thought that 'Sexy Voice and Robo' had a grea...

All that says is that the drama is fiction. They seem to have that at the end of every episode of almost every drama.

Oh, by the way, I've got a trick question here: does anyone know if what Yocchan sings in some episodes (you know, the "Professional... Shigoto...") was taken from a real song, or maybe a commercial, or if it's just something created for this drama? I originally thought it was just something made u...

I just finished watching the finale. I'm usually not too happy with finales of many drama series, and, unfortunately, I wasn't completely satisifed with this finale either. It seemed a little rushed and underdeveloped, and seemed like it could have used two episodes to do everything that it wanted t...

I just watched episode ten. Another good episode. Although there wasn't much action or even too much of a climax, I still thought it was played out pretty well. I think a few plot points needed a little more development, but I guess 45 minutes is too short. (I feel like that is a the case for quite ...

^ I don't know. But you can download the RAW here, where it is uploaded to MegaUpload:

It's separated into two parts, and you need HJSplit to put them together. I'm downloading it right now, though I'm not sure I'll have the time to watch it today...

The bench scene was nice - great backdrop - but I thought it was too short. Niko's monologues were great as always. But what I loved about this episode was the part where Niko's dad suggests to her that prayers are more like promises made between oneself and the kamisama , because it's not reliable...

anyways, i think Rei should try to understand KEN, she thinks he doesnt understand her, well she doesnt understand him either, what he did/do for her should already show the sign that he have feelings for her, for example bak in high school he gave her his second button. Well, the thing is, there's...

Anyone watch episode nine yet? Although I didn't think it was as great as episode eight, I still thought it was pretty great. I especially liked the bench scene at the end, and Robo's line, 'Kanashii nioi ga suru..." And I can't believe that this time they didn't even have a preview for the next epi...

Re: The excellent ep8

Nice analysis. :) Come to think of it, they were pretty cunning not to show any images from ep9 in the preview. I'm actually worried about the fact that they didn't show any scenes from ep9 in the preview... Could it be possible that they haven't filmed it yet? Lol. It seems like the staff and cast ...

Episode 8 was pretty good. Can't wait to see episode 9. However, I'm a little disappointed that both episodes 6 and 8 didn't have any stop-motion scenes. Lol. I liked those scenes. spoiler question for episode 8 that i just finished watching - is anyone surprised at the attachment niko is showing? f...

The news was such a shock to me as well. When I first saw the headline on Yahoo! Japan, I almost couldn't believe it. May Sakai's voice continue to live on in the hearts of many.

They would probably want to leave more time than just one extra week... But I guess all we can do right now is look forward to episode 8. The plot seems really interesting, and the guests for the episode are probably the most well-known since Nakamura Shidou.
