Last episode = 22% with the highest moment of 25.5% I strongly don't believe any other lead actor can pull off this kind of rating. 13% is NOT low in today standard and the average of 17.3% is indeed excellent.

[The times were such that good, original storylines were aplenty and you could put together a star-studded cast like you saw in Long Vacation (Kimutaku, Takenouchi, Matsu Takako, Ryo, Izumi Inamori, Hirosue Ryoko, and Yamaguchi Tomoko). Could a network afford to do so these days at the going rates ...

It seemed that the staff denied it on TBS's JIN official website. My Japanese is not that good but I think they said they're taking audiences' requests into consideration but the decision has not been finalized yet. If anyone who understand Japanese can confirm this, it would be nice. http://www.tbs...

Another vote for Kimura-Takeuchi's Pride. That whole scene in ep.6 was the most romantic scene I've ever seen in any dorama. Kimura-Fukatsu in One Million Stars was very hot and sexy. Kimura-Yamaguchi in Long Vacation was cute and sweet. Basically, Kimura Takuya is the best kisser in jdorama. The wa...

It had an okay story, and I'm pretty sure a lot of people moved out and got their own apartments after watching it [in hopes that they'd get a roommate like Sena] I also loved the other characters, Minami, animal Shinji and Momoko. The soundtrack's pretty impressive also, with gems like the Cagnet ...

The rating for the 3rd episode was 14.4

I guess people are now starting to drop this drama. I will give it another episode before I make that decision :(

If BOSS doesn't get a special, I don't think Buzzer Beat will. BOSS' rating was higher than Buzzer Beat and it pretty much swept all the awards in its season. I think there is a high chance for a drama to get a special if the rating is close to or exceed 20. Buzzer Beat didn't even break 15% even th...

And anyone knows if there'll be a special one for this series?
:P
I think those scenes are for the opening only.

Judging from the rating, I don't think there will be a special for this drama :unsure:

I'm disappointed :( I was so pumped up for this drama but the first episode let me down. I can't believe that it's a getsu9 drama. The production was bad, the script was bad, the acting was average, it's trying too hard to be funny that even when it's really funny, I can't laugh anymore. The only go...

Huh, you learn something new every day. IMatchy may work with JE once in a while, but I believe he did branch out on his own and got a real job. What I mean is that they find something they like better than the old song and dance and use that as their primary income. I mean, isn't the man a racer n...

But since JE was only founded in the 80's, there aren't many examples of Ojiisan Club members as they're all still pretending to be under 35. Johnny & Associates was founded in 1962. Some of their older members are still active in singing and acting -- Matchy, Hiromi Go, and Higashiyama, who are al...

This drama reminded me of Long Vacation right from the first episode. The relationship between Riko and Mai is similar to Minami and her weird friend who occasionally gave good and blunt love advice. Sena and Naoki are similar in that they are actually good in what they're doing but they can't excel...
