Just finished watching K-On! which was quite the fun little light-hearted comedy. I think 12 twenty-five episodes? 4 high school girls with unique personalities and temperaments form a pop-rock band. Interesting, though it's a girl-character driven story, there's no episode that even mentions any so...

3 times My Little Chef: It gets better each time I watch it. Very sentimental show I guess. 2 times Trick 1 & 2: Just as much fun as the first time. You're Under Arrest: neat seeing a younger, spunky Misaki Itoh after watching so many of her shows Haruka 17: Don't know why, but I did. Densha Otoko: ...

Hmm...I see we're already going off topic here. That's okay. Let me clarify: I didn't intend for this topic to go bashing North American productions. I really do enjoy j-drama but i wouldn't be honest if I said that all american productions are bad and all the japanese shows I've watched are good. B...

Actually, I enjoyed Aya Ueto's character in this. She starts off playing a type of narrator to the story but then her own insecurities start to seep into the plot. When her relationship with Akiko Yada's character hits some choppy waters, it happens subtly and naturally as with many sister-relations...

What J-Drama would you like to see Hollywood try to remake?

Okay, before you all go on a rant about how this question is as close to j-drama fan sacrilege as any, please keep in mind that I'm not saying it would be any good , just what j-drama might be interesting for Hollywood to attempt a remake. I know there are a lot of cultural nuances that would have t...

Miho Shiraishi. Loved her since Orange Days and Swing Girls (as the music teacher). Thought she might breakout after Orange Days and Hotman 2 but she seems to have become relegated as a secondary character. Yet even then, she manages to steal scenes like in her sadistic, opportunistic, HILARIOUS sex...

Most Charming?

Takeuchi Yuko. Everyone else is a far off second not because there aren't anymore very charming actresses in Japan. It's just that Takeuchi, for me, is in the stratosphere with her smile and her laugh. I couldn't help but smile whenever she did one of her warm giggles in Bara no nai Hanaya. She alw...

Abe Hiroshi. He's one of my favourite actors Japanese or otherwise. I'd love to see him cast in a role in a western production since I think he could pull off the crossover with his talent and Hollywood leading man looks.

Thanks to tiratira for uploading the subbed eps 1-3! Watched'em and I have to say...not bad! So far so good. They've kept the good elements and spirit of the original show so far and added some subtle unique touches. I wonder if they'll veer off from the original storyline at some point (other than ...

I was also disappointed with how Sweet Spy ended but the show itself fell off the tracks about midway through when it lost its sense of humour and became a dire thriller. When that happened all the absurdities of the show that I had previously been willing to forgive became pretty glaring. The endin...

My introduction to j-dorama was kind of on the geeky side. A friend showed me his Sailor Moon Live Action DVDs.

I'm pretty much in agreement with everyone else so far. This has been a really enjoyable show.

It's true, the fun is in seeing such funny characters f...

The movie, for sure. I actually like the "character" songs of both of them. Just as Yui did a did surprisingly decent job with her acting, I think Erika did a nice job with her singing (playing the guitar convincingly was another story). I can (and have) listened to both all evening! :music: But I t...
