I always watch the preview at the end. They often leave doinkies impatient for the next episode though they often cherry-pick certain scenes to make the preview more "juicy" than the actual episode.

Well, I actually went to Tokyo this summer for six weeks, and people aren't mean at all. It's part of their culture to basically ignore strangers, and if you're a foreigner you might feel as if people avoid you, which is actually only because they're afraid of speaking English (like OvertheRainbow ...

I agree with mizune. The acting world is tough to break into for anyone, especially if you want to be a huge star. Many people only manage to get B or C-level roles and never get very famous. So becoming an A-list drama actress will take doinkloads and doinkloads of work and patience and perseveranc...

I've read that Johnny Kitagawa doesn't really have an active role in managing the artists anymore - his sister does it now. He's only a sort of figurehead for Johnny's and appears at only a couple big occasions. For that matter, none of the Johnny's artists live in dorms anymore. I wouldn't be surpr...

My family knows I like J-dramas and such but they don't really care about them, nor do they watch much of them. Though my mom once saw me watching some of SekaChuu and some other J-drama in the 'tragedy' genre, and then concluded that all J-dramas are like that. :scratch: Personally I think that the...
