Re: Japan drama by US ?

I think the same goes for trying to make a Japanese film or drama with US talent. One glaring example is 'Il Mare' . This was very delicately done in Japan and then in US it was the difference between ballet slippers and lumberjack boots. Peggy Il Mare is originally a Korean movie, not Japanese.

Yeap. But readers aren't that gullible either so you just gotta choose what to believe and what not to believe. At least it brought about some 'interesting' discussions and revived this place for a bit... ohh, you'd be surprised. there's a lot of people that are driven by what tabloids say. though ...

Something I read off an Arashi fansite blog (hehe, the places I go to sniff for Juri news :mrgreen: ) That's a weird place to find Juri-chan news... :scratch: haha....I'm not an Arashi fan.

lol, I know some people here will have pretty strong reactions reading that article since many of us were dissatisfied with the ending and SP, but let's remember folks, the article came from a gossip site with no source given. It's probably a hearsay/impression piece based on what the blogger read o...

Bleh. Which brings up the question of ...

Some news -- Saturday, June 28, 2008 Last Friends SP garners 17.4% in VRs (Source: Mainichi) Mainichi's always using the same photo for Last Friends-related news. Anyway, VRs = Viewer's Ratings and compared to Last Friends' Final Episode's VRs of 22.8%, 17.4% is rather low. Viewers also commented th...

As someone else stated before, what IS going on with Kioku? 3 weeks with no release? Are they having some troubles? Apparently one of their subbers had gone overseas and another is engrossed with Euro2008. lol There should be releases of ep 8 & 9 from Kioku soon. Anyway...yeah, the end of "Last Fri...

Indeed, Eita is a fantastic, reliable supporting actor! I've seen him in Orange Days, Kimmi Wa Petto, Nodame Cantabile & Unfair and he always plays his role well no matter how small the part. But Last Friends has got to be his most endearing role yet. Hopefully, in his next drama Eita will finally g...

@hanapyupyu : I seriously think what's lacking the in final episode is a really big speech/wow moment towards the end. Something that can shake us all out of the 'aww, how sweet' phase which started from the instant Ruka appeared in that suit...heh. I think all is in agreement that an important ele...

Some additional thoughts about the characters, after watching it with subs.... I've got to say, while on the whole I found this a memorable drama (we got some complicated, interesting characters and issues, if not good writing, or a good resolution...) the ending does feel a bit flat and awkward.

I believe that this show attracts viewers from more mature age groups due to the serious issues involved while its young, capable cast make the show p...
