His character may suck hard but Hanyu wears a set of outstanding suits. Everytime I see him I wish I was that good looking.

Damn what have they done to Legal High with these useless new characters ... It used to be moderately over the top but now it's absolutely overdone. Where's the balance ?

They tried to recapture this unique flavor in PRICELESS but despite Kimura (as good as ever), it wasn't even close to HERO. I wish they made a second season.

Rewatching it, it really is the absolute best J-drama I've seen. Great writing and themes. They don't things like that anymore.

And Kimura x Matsu is my favorite couple.

Usually I can't stand reboots, I didn't last 2 minutes in front of the new GTO (the original was so good) but in this case I'm loving it and I have to thank Yuriko Yoshitaka for playing such a good character.

Moteki is much more fun and that's just was it was intended to so, being fun. Boys on the Run ended being cool but nowhere as sexy and cool as Moteki, not to mention some atrocious pieces of acting at times.

Well I think the old GTO used the manga as a basis to create a great drama while this one just tries to adapt the manga to be the more faithful possible. I think the first approach is the best, too many things that work on paper don't look good on TV.

If this was realistic, that wouldn't be funny. But Moteki was way more subtle.

Reminded me of Moteki too but Moteki was just way better. The acting is atrocious, particularly Maruyama.

Lasted 15 minutes. I can't help but think about how it was done in the 1998 version and it was just a gazillion times better.

EP 10 : I think Legal High is the best comedy since Hero. I'm incredibly sad it's going to end and I'm torn between my expectation of a second season or a SP, and the fact that those things are always a let down compared to the first season. btw, if Masato Sakai doesn't win an award for that, it wil...

Ep. 9 is an instant classic with Sakai giving one of the best speechs I have ever heard at the end. That was incredibly powerful. What a performance.

My opinion I liked the ending ... Giving what the viewers wanted to see is too predictable and their relationships, after all they've been through together and the reapparance of Urara, would have been kind of awkward. They had to say goodbye and it was well done, everything can move on that. The sc...

I thought it was the best episode. The intensity towards the end hasn't been matched so far (well maybe two episodes ago).
And the fact she said she didn't like him as she was 8 years ago just adds more complexity to this whole mess, I really can't wait to watch the next episode.

Who cares about overrating or underrating stuff, or even ratings. Just enjoy. It's pretty good and I'm happy it's successful.

Not sure he wants to show Norisugi as the bad guy and Naoko has the good one. We saw Ikezawa and Naoko kissing. We saw Naoko acting childishly when she had to justify herself in front of Norisugi. I think it just shows every character with their qualities, their weaknesses and their malicious instin...

It's like he's been stolen 8 years of his life. When you feel humiliated as he was, yeah sometimes you act dumb. It happens a lot. Communicating is difficult I think. Anyway it was an excellent episode and I'm really glad the OST was uploaded because it's the big part of the atmosphere created by t...

I don't see that as a plothole. I don't think dramas are meant to be 100% realist. Nobody behaves like that in real life. I think they play on this ambiguity, is she human or not ? She always has something ready for any kind of situation in her bag, she can do everything ... Of course that may be be...

As a man I perfectly understand Yasushi's reaction. First he's deceived, then he understands more things have been hidden to him, then he realizes why Naoko behaved weirdly 8 years ago and he feels something is going on again between his girlfriend and her uncle ... At this point it's just pride ta...
