Geez, I wonder if Yamada Takayuki regrets his cameo in Ep4 and the upcoming Ep5 granted that Ep4 hasn't been as disastrous as Ep2 but all the episodes so far clearly show that the writer and probably the producer are far off from their element. I thought ep. 4 was just as disastrous. Note to direct...

I bought an import commercial DVD (2-disk set) from Amazon but the English subs are really, really awful, and my Japanese isn't good enough to follow it without subs. I've been trying to d/l the torrents but there's never any seeds available. Anyone want to rip a DVD-R of the raws and trade me for ...

There's nothing wrong w/ watching a drama purely for certain actors/actresses regardless of content, although I do draw the line when a drama is total crap. In defense of the original poster, I think s/he was only complaining about the number of posts for dramas such as Atashinchi no Danshi (just fo...

8thSin You have to think that this days are not exactly the best ones for SMAP... I don't think what happens to SMAP right now is related to KonKatsu's ratings. People aren't just into this kind of drama anymore, seem like they weren't interested with this drama since the beginning, remember that e...

Yes, there's a low-res (but quite watchable) rmvb version w/ traditional Chinese hardsub available in the usual places. Also, according to YesAsia.com, the official R3 (HK) version will be out on 3/2 w/ English and Chinese subs (and will probably be a lot cheaper than the R2 version). Wow, the HK v...
