Can I get in on this thread? I nominate Eguchi Noriko.

Name: 江口のりこ
Name (romaji): Eguchi Noriko
Real name: Eguchi Tokuko (江口徳子)
Birthdate: 1980-Apr-28
Birthplace: Hyogo, Japan

She plays solemn and boring characters, but she's a real beauty -- in my opinion only maybe.

Special??

Does anyone know if there is a Enka no Joou special planned? This show is screaming for a special since Himawari's story didn't seem complete -- at least to me.

thanks!

Well, I don't quite know what I did to deserve that little extra blurb, but I've been having that kind of day so I am not too surprised.

I disagree. The direct and honest approach is the best. If he can't handle it then he isn't ready to be with anyone. A girl might be not respond well to a direct approach but a guy should be able to step up to the plate. That's the whole point of being a guy. I could go on and on about what the ide...

Here's a few I could come up with... Are we restricting this to Japanese productions and or relationships with Japanese and white people only? The directions aren't clear in that respect...

Here's a question I haven't been able to find the answer to:

Who is the actress who plays "Jessie," the King's squeeze? I thought she was very funny in her limited role.

Everyone seems to be on the right track, I think. Well, except for Yamcha. Although, I would have less of a problem with that now than when I was in high school. The direct approach is definitely out. He might think you're teasing him or being otherwise insincere if you just approach him head on. Le...

A Million Stars Fall from the Sky is definitely a cut above the norm. If you can't handle an ending that isn't happy, don't watch it. Just as in life, things don't work out. People don't live happily ever after. Sometimes, justice does't win. Sometimes, things don't turn out as we hope. If you want...

Maybe so...

I think it is possible for a guy and a girl to just be friends... HOWEVER.... Sometimes, you don't know you have some feelings of love for her (or him) until that friend tells you he/she found a lover and it's not you. If you can take that news in stride, then you are and were friends. If you heard ...

Goodness! I hope I don't seem like one of Qoogirl's "Citizen-Arrester" types. The case of legal immigrants who overstay their visas and find themselves on the "illegal" side is certainly a part of this debate, but I don't think we look upon those people in the same light as those who come into the c...

Though, I must say, on a forum where we watch dramas from another culture(s), I'm very surprised there are people who are AGAINST learning about a different language and culture. Schala, I can't disagree with you more on this quote above. Shiny Plastic was pointing out the fact that we are made to ...

OvertheRainbow: The lack of a defending post for the "yes" point of view can be explained by the fact that a "yes" stance on this issue can't be defended -- not even by the illegals themselves. They would support it, of course, in much the same way a junky would support legalzing drugs. However... I...

My vote will be "no"

Rather than read the article at the start of this thread, I decided to answer just the subject itself since I already know my answer: NO . [Why is it that saying "no" to legalizing illegal immigraton is bad or otherwise "racist?" I don't get that thinking.] As someone who has lived overseas (Japan),...

Sekachuu >= Tears

I liked 1 Liter of Tears as much as the next person, but I am tired of the comparrisons to Sekachuu. I like Sekachuu better than Tears, but they are too different and to far apart in time to be compared fairly. If you must compare Tears to another drama, I recommend Kamisama, Mou Sukoshi Dake -- it'...

I thought that Kamisama, Mou Sukoshi Dake was good -- not the best, but good, at least. I also liked Otousan . Sure, it didn't have lots of twists and turns in the plot, but that would have only hurt the story. The one drama that I am certain that I hate is Uso Koi . In fact, for the safety of the p...
