I envy you being able to casually watch and understand in real time. Learning Japanese well enough to be able to casually watch dramas seems like an impossibility for me. I have made several starts, but the goal seems unavailably far away. I will try to press on. You don't have to take classes, jus...

Ehhh, I love the child actor who played Hana's eldest brother, the most! The little boy was so cool and handsome. Who's his name? I prefer the child actor rather than the adult version of the eldest brother XD As for child actress... she was so-so for me, but once she entered the boarding school, th...

Tbh, I lost interest in this drama in the middle of Week 5, cause Nakama Yukie's character is soooo boring. I'm a big fan of Nakama, but her character here is just boring. But the Japanese media keep reporting about the high average ratings every week, so it got me interested to continue and I'm so ...

Anyone know who's the female singer in one of the BGM track of the drama's original scores? It plays over and over in this drama. Her voice and way of singing reminds me so much of Sheena Ringo, so I'm really keen to know. I looked for the OST details, but found no details on the female singer. Am I...

So I saw the first 3 eps of Hanako & Anne. Haven't been watching asadora since Jun to Ai which I dropped midway. I decided to watch Hanako because I love the 2 main actresses, Yoshitaka Yuriko and Nakama Yukie. Still too early to judge whether this is a good one or not, and the child actress didn't ...

Okay, final verdict. 1. BEST fighting choreography in a Japanese movie/drama, I've ever seen. I have, yet, watch Rurouni Kenshin/Samurai X live-action, so RuroKen might have better choreography. But from what I've seen so far, this "Miyamoto Musashi" drama has worth-to-discuss action/fight scenes. T...

Love Episode 7! So... - Donki has a mental problem. She likes to see people around her unhappy and suffer pain. I love this twist. And I keep loving Suzuki Rio's performance more and more. She's amazing! Mana is losing badly here, we can see the contrast difference of acting skill between them too m...

I agree with both opinions above :roll
Cause the ending perfectly works both ways, as the true ending or open ending. Sakamoto Yuji is a genius :D
