So much for my New Year's resolution... Argh! Ivan, Top 5 is too hard, I can't pick! Putting them under spoiler tags because I decided to explain why (and yes, there *could* be SPOILERS here...). I'm ranking them in reverse order and according to what I think of Sachie's performance, not based on my...

Welcome to the thread, KatamariAddict! It's great to hear from another fan! Unfortunately, we are a rare breed here on D-Addicts, but we try to keep on posting anyway. :P First, about the video. Thanks! I was able to watch that last year but I forgot to bookmark and I totally forgot that it was on n...

NHK World Premium is the only Japanese network I have on cable. Wow, I check their schedules every week but I would have missed it if you didn't tell me. So that's what's it's called! I've come to call it Muse because of the homepage URL. :lol Good job! And thanks for the heads up! I hope they're st...

Re: Dancing Sanma Palace : :lol I honestly have no idea. It looks like a game, only thing is, I don't know if it involves dancing. Sanma mostly interviews celebrities on his show (though some of them show some "special skills or talents"). I haven't seen one of his SPs, but I do think he'll do more...

Leading someone on, making him think that you care when you don't is not a good thing... but if you weigh that against the other option, breaking up with that same person through phone is just as bad. It's not like I've ever been in a relationship, but IMHO, a phone break-up is like trampling on a p...

How could you cover your eyes with such hot women on screen? How could you?! LOL It could've helped if they were two hot guys, but then again, if the scene is hellish, why not look away? :lol Ok, that scene's not exactly hellish, just awkward. :whistling: Re: Age issues: I don't think Taeko's age w...

Watched Saigo no Senpan last night. Her performance was *very* subtle this time, but... ...she died again! I knew it! After watching that NHK special I was half-wishing that she was cast as the (rather) promiscuous woman instead. That would've been more of a challenge... Anyhow, I still enjoy seeing...

Heads up! Her official site has a new look (updated November 10). The current background image is another version of her headshot with the green background. The other two are on her profile page , and on Ken-On's official site (see last photo under the first spoiler tag of my July 12 post). Another ...

I guess I missed the poll. :lol

I've seen her in Sommelier, Isshou Wasurenai Monogatari, Ai wo Kudasai and Tomorrow. I think she's really good in all of them. And she's got range; she can cry her eyes out in one scene then be a total mischief in another. :thumright:

@toyotaku: Yeah, I saw that too. I was a bit puzzled when that headline popped up after I logged in to Yahoo Messenger, then there, I remembered. Ironic and weird. :lol @hazelkenro: You're welcome! Some comments about episode 3: I thought Kohei was hiding the fact that he's married? I have no idea ...

@hazelkenro: I've PM'd you my screenshots. I got carried away with episode 3. :P Anyone else interested in screenies? :D Me too! She is so cute. My highlight of the show. The hosts are quite a turnoff for me. Tabe Mikako perhaps? The one who acted as Yasuko in Yasuko to Kenji? At first I was thinki...

She's 30. (born May 1, 1978) Speaking of age, I found this site some time ago. It's a comparison chart of her character's age vs her actual age. It's only up to 2004. For those who can't read Japanese and hate online translators, the second to the last column is her character age, while the last is ...

Just some random thoughts... I actually thought that Shohei Miura's character (aka Shoji "The Rookie Host") would be uber-serious *points to trailer*...Now I call him "the sidekick." :lol :crazy: at the accesories. I noticed Eagle's timepiece. It's not your ordinary wristwatch but it's too much for ...

Roundhouse? Yeah, that one in the parking lot scene in episode 4 of Taiho Shichauzo was the closest move to a roundhouse...But it wasn't even half a roundhouse! :lol I watch that scene with my eyes half-covered. *cringes at the mere thought of it* But I really enjoyed that episode for some reason. I...
