Tiger & Dragon has superior narrative but as far as comedy goes, I'd have to vote for Kisarazu Cat's Eye as funniest drama of all time. Tokkyu Tanaka 3 Go also isn't consistently as funny as Kisarazu but is probably one of the best comedy/dramas to come out in years (pwns anything thiis lame season)...

Although it doesn't top my list of faves, I actually enjoyed Gal Circle. On the surface it's like many other dramas where the main protagonist uses unconventional methods to teach younger kids moral/life lessons (i.e. GTO, Engine, Dragon Zakura). However, it utilizes the most absurd premise: an Amer...

Hm... The 3rd girl, is she supposed to be pretty? She looks really ugly, atleast to me >_<. Also how come Rosa isn't "dating" with the one with glasses instead of the hotel dude... doesn't make any sense at all. No, the 3rd girl isn't supposed to be pretty. Is there some rule that only attractive p...

If the drama wouldn't have CK in it, I wouldn't watch it, honestly. Her performance is good as usual. The supports are all right, doing a good job. But whenever Tanaka pops up on a scene... ugh... Being over the top in every single scene is not acting, it's just annoying. Comedy is fine, but if tha...

:lol I'm starting watch this drame and it's pretty funny ;p I'm glad you enjoy it. It has some hilarious scenes but I think the evolution of the friend/relationships between characters is what really makes TT3G stand out. Dramas like Nobuta wo Produce, Kisarazu Cats Eye and Stand Up took lots of ti...

My first exposure to Jun's acting would have been Gokusen... but I could only stand 2 episodes of that crappy dorama (I couldn't help but compare it to GTO which I felt was superior in every way). My next exposure would have been HYD. I thought he did a pretty good job. I was genuinely rooting for t...

^-^ this will always be one of my favorite doramas I watched World Series last year in Tokyo, Japan. Even though I'm Japanese, I was born in Vancouver so my nihongo isn't the greatest. The movie kicked so much ass. If it had subs I probably would have enjoyed it even more. I bought the DVD but agai...

There should be 12 episodes. No Cali theme to the shirts this time around. Just some outlandish (color-wise) yet dope gear. Last time I checked the official TT3G site, there was not a single reference to Tanaka Koki other than as cast. You would never know he was even in the drama. I think pics of h...

BTW the episode I was referring to was ep10. And just to recapitulate: Kimura Kaela ROCKS!!!!! Holy cr%p she is just the perfect combination of adorability, eccentricity and coolness. And she's touring again in October when I happen to be visiting Japan again. God bless serendipitous vacation plans....

Chooooouuu kanashiI !! I was heading back slowly from the Kimura Kaela concert (Hell Yeah!!! She kicked so much ass!!) and I forgot Tokkyu Tanaka 3 Go started at 10pm. So I ran and ran like YamaPi in ProDai and got back to the hotel to catch the latter half of my fave drama this season. I'll leave t...

Ep 10

Just finished watching episode 9 in my hotel room in East Ikebukuro, Tokyo, Japan. Looked a little weird b/c it was a regular feed on a crappy TV as opposed to the HD versions I've been downloading up till now. Even with those constraints, this ep kicked major oshiri. I wonder if there'll be a bump ...

I've only watched 1st half of episode one of sexy Voice. Had a lukewarm appraisal of what i saw. Is it worth watching? 'Sexy Voice and Robo' is my favorite drama series this season by a mile, but I also think it could be one of those ones you either love or hate. But here's what I think of it: Both...

Ep 6 was probably the best so far. Not so much comedy wise, but excellent progression of the story with greater depth into the background of Momoyama Seiji's character. Also get further evidence of how Koki (Ichiro) has a Forrest Gump effect. Even though he appears useless he's able to effect positi...

Great post! Just the info that I needed. I am giving up on jodan janai and is currently looking for a new one. Thanks, NHK9. Actually, I just finished watching Watashitachi ep 04. Miho Kanno does an admirable job but it's hard to take this drama seriously. One thing i noticed is how they always foc...

In my opinion the best series thusfar: Tokkyu Tanaka 3 Go - excellent cast. Surprisingly good performance by Koki who plays a character that is patheticly inept, annoyingly **** but kind at heart with a good moral compass. You can't help but cheer for him (unlike Jun's portrayal in Bambino). The wri...

Nope...I'm done with Jdrama. GOKUSEN SUCKED SO FUCKIN' MUCH! It's the only drama in the history of drama that I couldn't fuckin' finish. I watched episode 6, then skipped to 12, and fast-forwarded to the end. It was so bad. I can't believe it. You're done with Jdrama b/c of Gokusen? That's akin to ...

I agree in your assessment of Gokusen. It is pure Velveeta and a barf bag needs to be in close vicinity if one intends to watch more than one episode of it. If you scope out Jdorama's top 50 list, a lot of the entries are based less on merit and more on the popularity of the "teen heartthrob(s)" sta...
