Actually this one will be quite difficult to sub because of all the shougi games that they will have in it. That may be one of the reasons why no one is planning to sub this, plus the fact that the cast isn't particularly famous or anything. Though perhaps when it airs someone might like it enough t...

I actually was not looking forward to it until i saw waratte iitomo. The cast was so vibrant and somehow it reminds me of the vibe that the nodame cast had. I am really interested in watching it as it is also a manga adaption that seems really interesting. I expect to see passable acting that is off...

I don't really find any of them appealing but i've watched kiken and its true, Itou Misaki is a terrible actress. I almost preferred her wooden acting in Densha Otoko because at least there she's made for the part-> all she has to do is stand and look pretty. In kiken, i find that the comedy is stup...

I think Maki would make a horrible eun chan. She is perfect for Mizuki because Mizuki was very much a feminine girl and Maki is very like Mizuki in looks and in character. But Eun Chan is a complete tomboy and i can't imagine maki in that. I don't think Maki could pull it off. Besides, she's too pre...

Yeah, the stupid stuff was blended in really really well. But the best part in my opinion was
when the guy dressed as a lady did his suicidal 'attack' on his audience so that they swarmed up to block the people chasing after anmitsu. that was great.
