^^

I'm sure it was something TBS was keenly aware of when they casted Sakai Masato. They must have run through a whole list of possibilities maybe even by referring to NHK taigas! But since the story leans towards Arikoto as the lead character they would have had to have a heavyweight.

I'm wondering if Yusuke's issues are going to end up conveniently forgotten, seeing how Ep 7 has developed. The big reveal looks like it will be next week and they still need to tie up the other ends.

It'll probably remained unsubbed till much later. I'm very much looking forward to Ep6. It seems like an interesting case ... and also, Ichinose is out of the team so it's going to be fun watching the new team dynamics.

Hah. What an ending to Ep2. It just fell flat to me even though it was supposed, I guess, to be breathtaking. Now Rensuke and Xiu Mei are both trying to manipulate each other, I wonder who will end up hurt in this twisted game. It is good that Hazuki Rensuke is a different type of character from Kim...

I'm not impressed with the first episode. Sunare seems to be more interesting. The chemistry doesn't seem to be working here. And yea...Lin Chi Ling's character is annoying. I guess I can understand why her Japanese is bad since her character only learned for a short time in China and doesn't have ...

I'm glad for Rinjo's return this season. Despite the staggering number of detective dramas, it seems that none can compare. I haven't watched Zettai Reido, but I don't think I will even try to attempt that. The suspects in Shinzanmono don't measure up to those in Rinjo, even when they get their scre...

It feels rather bland. Ep1 was fine but it would get tiresome watching Kaga take an episode to suspect a resident in the area and then find out that it is nothing more than hiding a secret to protect someone for many more episodes. Mizobata Junpei is just rather forgettable as Abe Hiroshi's sidekick...

Hopefully it will. It is annoying watching with Megavideo because I supposedly kept exceeding the allocated amount of viewing time permitted. I'm impatient to watch the continuation to episode 1 since it is a continuing story. One thing I'm glad about in season 2 is that the annoyingly screechy repo...

I had my Rinjo fix :mrgreen: It's likely that no one has found it yet since other dramas that aired the same week are being shared. I managed to locate an alternative source for that though it's not as sharp and high res as what would usually be available on DA: First half: http://www.megavideo.com/...

I hope this drama is going to be good because there's Abe Hiroshi. Even though Mukai Osamu, Kuroki Meisa and Mizobata Junpei are just blah actors. Apparently Natsukawa Yui is going to cameo as one of the characters along with some other established acting names. I'm just wondering how much they can ...

It's nice to hear that Shinohara is making a comeback. But I'm not excited about this Getsu-ku. There are better dramas to occupy myself than this. For the money they had to spend, they could have done better than Lin Chiling who will try her darnedest best to act but still only end up being a wallf...

^ I can't seem to see the green words clearly but it looks more likely to be 'Furimawasu' rather than 'Kurikaesu' meaning that he pushes her about and throws her into confusion. Something to that extent.
