If you believe the police are in any way as they're depicted in jdramas, then you'd have to believe the Japanese police are amongst the world's most incompetent of coppers. I'm just referring to the sexism at work. It wouldn't be surprising if females are treated inferior to men since Japan tends t...

Mmmm, had to check if 'draggy' was even a word, or just a lazy expression.

My big brick of a dictionary doesn't recognize it, but it seems the online dictionaries do. :scratch:

I think I'm in love with Kichise Michiko, she's gorgeous.

Thought the series was quite average, would have prefered if it was darker.

Have this on my to read list, it's been sitting in my library for a couple of years now, just can't seem to bring myself to open it. Looks like a difficult read, is it?

Also, for my work I'm reading lots of boring books without a plot, like Xinzhong Yao: An Introduction to Confucianism , Joseph Campbell: The Masks of Gods , Mircea Eliade: Shamanism , etc. Those books don't sound boring to me, your work sounds like it's pretty interesting. What do you do, if you do...

I think genres and material such as Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club, if remade into live-action movies, should remain within the Japanese entertainment industry. This type of humour wouldn't translate well to a western audience, nor would they be able to do it as well as the Japanese. ...

I do realise stories are constantly being told and retold but do people not get bored with the regurgitation of this particular story line??? I can understand remakes once in a while to appeal to newer generations but the most recent adaption in recent years, ie, the Gokusen series, were just a very...

I dunno, for me, the Korean (Pop) Music Industry represents everything that's wrong with the Music Industry today.

Not a popular opinion but nevertheless, only an opinion.

If you want other interesting movies, but not necessarily ones you'll want to own, I recommend either "Sonatine" (a 1993 movie starring Kitano Takeshi ) or "Bounce Ko-Gals" (1997, directed by Harada Masato). They're definitely not easy movies, but interesting nonetheless. I know this comment was po...
