I personally watch most of my japanese variety tv shows on http://i.youku.com/u/UNTQ4Mzc2MDAw/videos It's a streaming website, but if you download the website's program, you can download them onto your computer (in .flv format). They're surprisingly good quality for streaming. However, since the web...

The most notorious one I can think of is London Hearts, but they only do a few prank episodes a year. There are a number of them on D-Addicts, but I feel like they are not exactly what you have in mind. Instead of short minute-long pranks that are for quick laughs, London Hearts has become infamous ...

I saw the first episode of this in super low quality (as in, phone camera pointed at an analog tv) on Youku. This search brought up a considerable number of episodes. Hope this helps. Pandora seems to have higher quality videos, but the user seems to have restricted file viewing to members of the ch...

As we come up to the last episode, I need to express my enjoyment of this series. Like others, I was uncertain about the slow pace at the beginning, but the dynamic between Jotarou and Kahori was so refreshing that I just kept on watching. I think the part that makes me think that they'll end up tog...

@ps790 - I find the relationship between Kishi and the gay-roommate Yuu to be really interesting. If Yuu was a girl, then she would be the stereotypical childhood friend that has liked the MC for a long time, but is eventually passed over for the main female lead. The writer described their relation...

I'm pretty sad that this is getting cut off at 8 episodes. I really do think that it was innovative and way deeper than many people were expecting and/or willing to watch. In other discussions of this that I've seen, people stopped after the first ep because they didn't like the ideals being express...

She probably thought Yuzu was his girlfriend...

This drama made me cry through almost all of it, and it was simply because everything was so emotional and 'pure'. But yes, I nearly didn't download the second episode because I thought the "wife" development was so stupid. But my curiosity got the better of me, and it's happily torrenting into my c...

Watching this over and over again just makes it funnier. So far, the best first episode this season, and the second kept it alive. Tegoshi acted more like a jerk when he's not rabu rabu over Nagase. My nickname for Tegoshi's character is Sakura-chan, although I like Makio's "Sakuranantoka" (meaning ...

I think it's an interesting role reversal. Shuuji and Akira, the producers, treated her as a friend. Whereas, Aoi, the friend, treated Nobuta as a project/ experiment :) These are the things that makes me love the show! Yeah, I thought that the reversal was really intruiging.
