Replies: 9

Let me be the first to say 'no, it's not close to the best ever', though admittedly I don't like most recent dramas. For the sake of comparison, last season had two of the best dramas in a while IMO, Hanaya and Yoshio. This season has Last Friends, which stands out more because of the themes it tack...

hey9 Yeah, when I watched the raw I misunderstood somewhat about them being kind of codependent in crime, haruspex's subs cleared it up nicely. It still seems very sudden though, probably the only really quirky thing about the whole episode :P I guess I understand the Kita/Mizuho scene too but after...

Glad it's not just me. Slow loading + frequent timeouts, it took me three tries to post a message a while ago. This just started happening to me today BTW.

Though the wiki pages are still lightning-fast, everything else under the d-addicts domain seems affected.

aaah, nice job, defeated episode 9 so 'kanojo' has a name at last. it's interesting that they waited until the ninth episode to say it, I wonder why? until now she has been the only real 'nameless soldier'. this episode would seem to show Eiji hit rock-bottom, he must feel as though he has truly los...

Re: Episode 8

spoilers up to ep 8 Fuurin: "Perhaps he just up, and left, not even knowing that Shizuku's mom was pregnant, or had died in childbirth." That's entirely possible, I bet that if Eiji really had a flame for Shizuku's mother then he probably never even delivered the tapes. He may have told her that he ...

Spoilers for ep 3 I don't believe what Mizuho says, I believe her reaction towards him comes from something more than "you're a nice guy and I hate nice guys". That wouldn't explain her irrational hatred or why she's still having dreams about him eleven years later. I really think the root of her pr...

I agree that a lot of the plot twists in this were shallow and forced, I attribute that to the nature of the episodic format, which doesn't suit this particular story very well at all. The producers wanted to end each ep with a jolt, unfortunately this comes at the expense of cohesion. As the previo...

Re: Teru Teru Ashita Questions

Haruspex (spoilers): The thing that bothers me the most is the disappearance of the father. Maybe the actor was contractually obliged to appear only in a few episodes, but it's very strange that there is no mention of him at all in the last ep... The return to Tokyo is also a little mystifying. Mayb...

I actually prefer the drama, partly because I watched it first. Also, there's only so much you can do in a two-hour film, whereas a drama series gives a lot more breathing room to develop the story. Even though the drama felt dragged out at some parts, it just seemed more coherent in the end. The fi...
