I usually don't watch dramas that I don't like but the worst:

Yukan Club- Only redeeming factor was the nice-looking actors.
4 Shimai Tantei Dan- Horrible, horrible crap.

Both of those seemed like they would be interesting from the summaries but unfortunately not.

Nice first ep! Nothing too surprising since pretty much everyone speculated all that stuff. I especially love the opening sequence. All the acting was good but Masami was the weak link, I think. I liked her in Prodai but all her other characters are a little too cutesy for me. I actually understood ...

Re: "Around 40"

Hi all, Thought I'd stop by and leave a note myself. This looks like it will be a very entertaining series... so much so, in fact that, after consulting with my long-time editor Phoenix , we've decided to go ahead and work on english subtitles for "Around 40." We'll do our best to make th...

I'm really into "unique" J-Drama comedys like "Kisarazu Cat's Eye, Jikou Keisatsu, IWGP, Tiger & Dragon". These are really surprising, unpredictable and funny J-Dramas. Are there any other J-Dramas that fit in this category? I had enough of this school dramas or melodrama ro...

I don't mind either hard or soft. Usually I find that hardsubs have fewer errors but when they do I can't really do anything. At least in soft subs I can edit them.

Wow, I didn't like Juri's hair at first but now I think it really suits her. Girl crush? :wub: Actually, all the girls look really good. Unfortunately I don't like Eita's look but I don't mind I guess. I'm really looking forward to this show. I just hope I don't get my hopes up too much.

I watched the first couple minutes of the movie on Youtube last year but didn't have time to watch more at that time and never bothered to watch again. I kind of want to see it now just to see how bad it is. I think the actress for Shizuka was a half-Japanese from the US, so that would explain why s...
