Indeed. The kid who acted as Kiichi is pretty good, and he's only 8 this year! BTW, the woman Jin sees at the end of the episode has advanced syphilis. I wonder if they are trying to make some real life historical connection, because the first person to discover the bacteria that causes syphilis was...

yup...i agree with you, thats why i used 'mainly' I've heard older males and more guyish females using boku in dramas. it must be nice to have lived in japan. my exposure to japanese only comes from drama and my japanese lessons.
With all these talk about 'I', I wonder what kind of 'I' Jin uses...

I have this feeling that JIN might get summoned to the ooku coz he's such a pro doctor. the ed song by MISIA is very nice. I've been listening to it everyday :D btw, boku is mainly used by little boys, thats why Saki can never use it. Using watakushi is more proper in ancient times. about the lady w...

i think that the theory about who the patient is make sense too. maybe thats why jin's headache stopped after he landed in edo.

just finished ep 1 &2 abt ep1 Overall, the ep was good. but the fight over food between shun and hiro's char in the middle of a shootout was totally unnecessary, and quite stupid too. About the mysterious guy who walked away after nari's char died. He really reminds me of takayama tetsuji with that ...

definitely jdramas coz they are interesting and short. makes it easy to watch. theres more variety in their story too. One of my favorite is Haken no Hinkaku with its humorous serious lead and nodame. cdramas (exluding tw dramas) are not bad too. I used to watch many of them few years back til jdram...
