I don't know, I'm a pretty big Trick fan, I own all the DVDs, have seen the series numerous times, so I think I have a right to call the series out when it gets a little derailed. I agree that the series is not about big stars (which is why I didn't appreciate MatsuKen being casted in it) and the Ya...

Having finished watch ep6 last night, I have to say this was pretty good, and worthy of being called "TRICK 4." I could have done without all the guest appearances though. Nakama Yukie's appearances were pointless (as were her neighbors') and just stole screen time away from Yabe. The most guilty of...

I saw movie 3 "Reinouryokusha Battle Royale" last week. All in all, it was pretty horrible. They had MatsuKen (really famous period drama actor) cast as the 'evil' spiritualist, and even he seemed embarrassed about some of the lines he had to say. There were no inspiring tricks or magic feats done, ...

I don't think Kuwano is insensitive at all...I think he's very sensitive. If anything, ep. 11 proves that. Kuwano's #1 problem, IMO, is his immense "pride." Also that he gets embarrassed really easily. He doesn't like to let others know when he's happy. When people assume things about him he immedia...

Hey guys. I just finished watching S2 of Trick and I have a question about the finale. I don't really find any problems with it, I was willing to shrug off the hair-growing thing, since that was just so ridiculous that it had to be just for laughs anyway. (And to make Ueda look like Lupin III.) But....

Um, but it's true. The word otaku does literally mean "your house". And it did come from that word. In fact doinkies sometimes still hears "otaku" used to mean "your house". Yes, I am well aware of that use of the word. All I'm saying is that the two words aren't actually related. the two words are...

It's not "uru" which you typed, but kuru, which is "to come" which is also pronounced rai in the onyomi, in such compounds such as rainichi, (day of arrival), Actually, 来日 (rainichi) really means "coming to Japan"...the 日 is an abbreviation fo...

I would have thought Jinkama be smokin' hot when they show her in slow motion with that red dress.. but she just looks like her usual self. Nothing special. Sadly, even though I love Jinnkama, I have to agree. That dress was a terrible choice for her to wear. For shame. She's simply irresistable in...

I thought episode 7 was pretty good. The broken computer was pretty funny -- although I was kinda wishing that they would have developed the forum posters-meeting each other thing. Jinnkama and Keisuke were great in this episode, though. Spoiler comments: I KNEW that Sakurai wasn't about to let this...

What is 2ch and Comiket though? And why do they sometimes say Yamada instead of Yamada-san? 2ch is the abbreviation for 2chan, the forum where all the posting in Densha Otoko happens.

They really made this drama tough to watch, (which is good,) because it's so realistic. Take Saori's other love interest for example -- the guy that her brother Keisuke works for. I forget his name, but anyway...he's a good guy, there's nothing wrong with him at all. Hell, he even checks the 2ch for...

This episode was definitely my favorite one so far, but it was also the most painful to watch...because it all is so real to me! In the past episodes, all the super-embarassing parts just made me cringe in agony because I could feel Yamada's pain! This episode was definitely a turning point though.....

I still think that they cheated us in episode 5. The stalker wouldn't have bugged me as much if I didn't think that that scene had caused the dinner scene to be shorter. In the preview after Ep #4, they showed some scenes from the dinner, which made me think it would be a central part of the episode...

I've never seen the movie...I wonder if I wouldn't like it as much since I've seen the drama first. Especially from reading what you say, it sounds much more serious compared to the series -- and I think the comedy is obviously Densha Otoko's strong point.

I agree with greyhorse! Some dramas can be over-the-top in a bad, cheesy way...but I think Densha Otoko really hits it right on the spot. Just take ep #5, Sudo-san strangling Eri-chan and lifting her straight into the air...these things just don't happen in real life. Or the fiery explosions that al...

Oh...well, my original intent was to mask Eri-chan's identity and simply put her initials...

But now that you mention it...Sudo-san and Eri-chan together...(;;()ω())...don't excite me like that!!

Yeah, they acted like it was a big deal, but come episode #5, it was just like water under the bridge. In fact, she was hardly in #5 at all. I like Jinnkama though...her "lunches" with Densha are always good for some laughs. But you know something's going to happen with her before the end. Nice avat...

In response to Kyusaku... Yeah, I agree with you wholeheartedly. So as not to spoil, I'll rename the two parts you were talking about to "#1" and"#2." #2 wouldn't have bugged me as much if it hadn't been so damn long. It seems as if they ran out of things to do at the end and were trying to fill out...
