The relationships between the characters are really nicely done. And the dynamic between Koutaro and the chief is very enjoyable. They have done a nice job showing the chief's mentor-attitude beneath the blustery exterior. (I have a soft spot for Furuta Arata in dramas anyhow; he plays so many funny...

I have now finished this drama. I have a question about episode 9 (about 10 mins into it) I kept wondering if/why didn't Naoto recognize the footsteps of Naruse? Naruse left Souda's cellphone on when he walked away. Not sure if you're implying that Naoto didn't hear the footsteps or that the footst...

I like this drama a lot this season, and it's refreshing after so many melodramas. (Not that I don't enjoy some good melodramas each season.) We have plenty of plot driven dramas this fall, and it feels a lot more balanced for me to follow some character driven ones as well. One of my favorite thing...

also i wonder why she brookup with ex My guess: I think he cheated on her. That's why she was so openly dating that cheater in the beginning of episode 01. She was trying to expose him as a louse before dumping him publically. It would give her a cathartic sense of vengence after having been the on...

(P.S. to ryoko11 -- may I ask what series your avatar is from? :lol ) Sara117 got it right. It's from the first season of Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo. (Tsuyoshi was my favorite Hajime.) Btw, I do have a problem getting myself to watch Takeuchi Yuko since the drama Pride. I try to give actors a cou...

Why a lot of people don't like Nagasawa Masami? I think it is because a lot of females do not like divas in Japanese entertainment (or quite possibly any entertainment industry.) A number of women, including Nagasawa, Sawajiri, and even the old-school gals like Matsuda Seiko are disliked because of...

The second episode was a disappointment for me. While the plot itself is by nature predictable and cliched, the details weren't nearly so good in the second episode. There were a couple of forced scenes in the first episode (like the chicken speech on the runway), but the number of scenes that felt ...

I watched the raw for the Sushi Oji movie. It started out great, but I'm having a big problem with it come the middle. MAJOR SPOILER INSIDE I loved the stuff like "American Armadillo" or the outrageously gay police officer--even the hilariously bad English-speaking actors... but killing off Kawataro...

Arashi@Vox subs it too, but not sure whether its hardsub or softsub. It's probably a softsub if it's Arashi@Vox. I've followed a few series there in the past, and those were always softsub. I'm figuring on reading the novel after the series so as to avoid major spoilers. But that info about the sib...

Okay, watching KudoKan's latest series Ryuusei no Kizuna has been reminding just how much I love his work. In particular, it's making me think a lot about IWGP because of the mix of comedy and dark themes. So I just had to pull out this old thread to express my love for IWGP. It seems like this seri...

I partly agree with this. This probably is the reason why people are put off, but I'm going a bit further with this. I think a lot of people have lost important people in their lives and still manage to move on and live like the rest of us. What makes this different is that they don't just want to ...

I'm still thoroughly enjoying this drama too this season. (I watched 02 raw, since I couldn't wait.) And it's near the top of my favorites list presently. I think the characters are a big draw for me, and their relationships seem to flow well. It feels more natural than the other "cute kid shows" I'...
