Big time ending spolier:
He died of his illness. (Without seeing Satoko again. :cry: ) In the book, Honda takes Kiyoaki back to Tokyo by train, and Kiyoaki dies two days later.

My husband translated for me last night as I watched. I can work on a transcript if no one else subs it. (It may take me a few days since I have a final on Thursday.) Some of the things they were saying that I can remember off the top of my head: (Very rough translations, sorry...) First Kimura said...

[Discussion] SMAPXSMAP

It is supposed to air June 5th. I guess it was kept from the guys and as they were singing their new song: "Buzzer Beater" the lights went off and Michael Jackson appeared on the set. I would love to see a clip of this just to see how the guys reacted. Would anyone be willing to capture it and share...

After watching the movie again, I have a few more insights. I think it is really helpful if you read the book first. The book is written to show Kiyoaki's perspective and it gives insights into why he acts the way he does. I can see how someone watching the movie without first reading the book would...

I finally saw this movie today. :D :thumright: It was really well made. I was amazed as it really follows the book, almost to the letter. Only a few unimportant scenes were left out. It was weird but the movie depicted just what I had imagined while reading the book. Tsumabuki was great as ever. I t...

That's right, my husband saw V for Vendetta over the weekend and told me about that as well. It's so nice that he supports my Tsumabuki addiction. (Or should I say "tolerates" ha ha!) :lol

I'd have to vote for Kimi wa Petto and SOS . I managed to finish Kimi wa Petto, but I couldn't get through ep 3 of SOS. And, I am usually pretty good about trudging through dramas in hopes that they will improve or I will grow to like a character, but SOS was awful!! Oh, and there was some chatter e...

I cannot wait to see him in Haru No Yuki the movie. :wub: I just read the book by Mishima and Tsumabuki-kun should be perfect as the main character. You can see the Haru no Yuki thread at http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21599

I cannot wait to see this movie!! I just finished the book by Yukio Mishima. It looks like it's not scheduled to be released on DVD until April 28th. But, even then it is Region 2 probably without English subs. *sigh* Here is the synopsis by yesasia.com: Yukisada Isao, the director of Crying Out Lov...

I haven't seen Slow Dance yet, but I'll have to now. I think that one reason we watch Jdorama is to lose ourselves in that fictional world for a while....(I'm married to a Japanese guy, and I know they aren't even as remotely romantic as they appear in dramas.) Hey, one can dream..hee hee

thanks! I sent you a PM with my e-mail. Sorry to derail the thread everyone.

Did I mention that Tsumabuki Satoshi is one of the best looking Japanese guys I've ever seen? My goodness. :wub: If only I weren't 6 years older than him. Wonder if he likes older women. ha ha

I am on a dial-up connection and it looks like there are no seeders. WAAAAAAHHH! :cry:
Can you believe it? I'm probably one of only 3 people in the US that is still on a dial-up. Guess that's what I get for moving out to the boonies. :-(

Love It!!

I absolutely love this drama. And like the original poster, it was the reason I started playing hockey again. (I'm a girl) I have seen the entire thing raw (from TV in Japan) then both the other versions. I love JTV's work and was so happy to see that they were doing Pride!! I really like both main ...
