@ flcia, toyotaku , ninichen Think toyotaku is very right abt the ignorance is bliss bit. My initial problem with the casting was cos Ryosuke is supposed to be 23. Somehow i just don't feel that the Ryosuke we're looking at in the drama is 23. Secondly it's just that i've seen the guy for 11yrs now...

Etto, something’s bothering me abt the acting in Yaoh. I know it probably makes me seem like a total loser but I’ll just confess. I’m not really able to “see” Ryosuke, ie i’ve been viewing Yaoh like oh… Mabo is doing this…fangirl giggles throughout the way. Frankly I’m not even sure if it’s just me ...

@ ironicwave - Thanks so much for breaking ur personal habit when it comes to drama viewing to encourage me ^_^. I would say Yaoh is not entirely episodic compared to the likes of Kuitan and Jikou Keisatsu this season where you can actually view each epi as a drama sp to its own. Yaoh is more GTO l...

@ scanky_chops - I'm kinna bothered by Shu cos he comes across as being neither here nor there and his apparent double standards in Epi 4. Guess cos of his background, he does think of himself as much "better" than the rest of the hosts but somehow i really don't know what the hell he's doing other ...

Hey bluabc , how did you take the screencap with softsub? I'm looking for a player that can take screencap (without ending up black screen) instead of having to open VirtualDub every single time. 8thSin, i should really ignore you for not liking TOKIO LOL! But since it's V-day and i'm in a great mo...

For folks already involved in fansubbing now, i doubt money would motivate them to "work harder". For fangrps wanting to recruit members, i guess offering incentives direct downloads of dramas (ie no need to struggle with BT speeds) or the use of FTP server space for personal uses might help. I woul...

Actually Seiya is not that scary for me. But that's probably cos i'm quite a fan of the manga ver. Seiya and the love sorta split over into the drama ver lol! I'm mean if i were to swipe the slate of the manga clean, besides Shu san, i've found Seiya most interesting so far. There's so many question...

Etto, what is a GREAT drama? Okay, i'm extremely picky hence it has to satisfy all of the conditions below. A) Breaking new grounds, venturing into previously unchartered territories. You have not seen that sort of genre or type of presentation being explored in dramas before. B) Serves the purpose ...

Okay, since i'm subbing this. I've to watch every episode 3 times by default anyway :P They had better give Kaname Jun more airtime to sustain my interest. I guess epi 2 does tell us why Shu was not in the Seiya gang in the first place even though he's not a newbie like Ryosuke or Natsuki. The fact ...

An excellent first episode. Characters were pretty well shelved out, pace and cinematography of the episode was excellent. Was really amused by the subtle Infernal Affairs influences with the checking of all the keitais and the comment that Shinku might have an undercover agent in the police force t...

Yap, watching this. Was debating whether to view this eversince it was announced since i was not particularly impressed with the SP that was broadcasted last yr. TOKIO singing the drama ending theme swayed me since i was itching to hear how "Mr Travelling Man" sounded like given that none of the 5 g...

Besides the aboved mentioned... Dosoukai comes to mind. http://www.jdorama.com/drama.508.htm Lead character is guy and the content on the drama is more or less based upon how he comes out.

Epi 1 is pretty good. The ending credits with photos of the real-life gal which this drama was based on captured my attention. My only rant is probably the inclusion of the frictional character (Ryo's role). I do understand it's a special request of her mum since one of her deepest regrets was that ...
