I like this drama A LOT but is getting exasperated with the kissing scenes. Seriously.. WHY CAN'T TAMA KISS A GIRL PROPERLY? No, I don't want to hear, it's a Japanese standard to kiss like walls because I've seen his senpai did better. Is it because the actors underage? I hope it is because the kiss...

Thanks for posting the Korean version of Alone! the song is lovely in either language. I read once that Tamamori (Ren) is using Fushigaya (Shu) voice in A.N.Jell songs/solos. Is it true? Yes and no. For the A.N.JELL songs, Fujigaya Taisuke (Shu) can be heard more clearer than Tamamori Yuta's (Ren). ...

I didn't watch the original so can't compare. So far its enjoyable. Ren & Mio is pretty cute. A question to those who had watched the Korean version, did the girl had a slow number solo like in this clip?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE3dbrsrAqw Love her voice and that song. Also, any other diffe...

So far, I'm enjoying this drama immensely. :mrgreen: All the cast are awesome. People have given a lot of flak on Gakki & Ryo's work in the past, myself included, but their performance here so far is commendable. Well... the characters aren't much a stretch from what they have done before and there ...

Thanks for the article also to Ogose about your explanation on Japan's standard medical practice. I'm loving the way they depicted the family. The dialogue amongst Take seems simple but there's layers of emotion going on. Surprisingly, the scene that felt so striking to me was in episode 5 when Seij...

just finished watching ep3 it's really strange how Seiji is fixed on buying a house. Why not rent an apartment? @_@ if I were him, I'd try to tape that witch messing with the garbage and show it around to everyone in the neighborhood and make her life a living hell. >:( To convince his father that ...

^ The sister's side story is bothering me a bit. It made me wonder if a lot of Japanese housewives ...tend to be bullied by their peers. I thought it would be enough of a good reason for the sister not being able to keep an eye on their sick mother because of being far and having a family of her own...

^what parts that made you feel it was hard to watch? I breezed through the second episode compared to the first. It took me awhile to finish the first half of the first episode. It was an excellent pilot nonetheless. I was like this > :cry: :cry: :cry: during the credit roll and Hatenai Sora is play...

There's a new subbing AND streaming group just posted their subbed videos at a_ra_shi community at LJ. The post is locked to community members only but I think its easier to be a member of a_ra_shi than Stormy. Those interested should give it a try. I'm not going to post a direct link to the post bu...

Episode 8 [edited: 7]. Jun is a good kisser. don't really care about the acting (not saying he is bad) but he is a very pretty man to watch. even if his acting looks awkward, i can still laugh at how ridiculous he looked and not being annoyed by it. HARDER THAN HARDCORE XD XD XD Yuko is lovely too. ...

end of episode 4 and the whole of 5 & 6 was really lovely. Too bad they missed the opportunity to capture viewers earlier...
The kiss was really sweet and I'm so happy to see Shiori responded <333
