Psionic asked for some older dramas, and mizune gave a list. I would like to add a few to mizune's listl

Summer Snow - One of my favorites
Tokyo Wankei - With Yukie Nakama
Kaikyo wo Wataru Violin - A great drama based on actual events
My Little Chef - Good acting an you learn a little bit about gourmet cooking

All are available with subtitles at the same places mizune listed.

^thx gordan_br,
Il most probably give summer snow a viewing as well as my little chef (just because its got yada akiko :wub: )

btw does anyone know if any subbing groups have top caster planned?? i remember some group stopped subbing due to the difficulty --> its suppose to be a great drama so i hope someone will pick it up if not done so already.

just real quick, is Seigi no Mikata any good?
IMO its the best comedy so far this year, sure I wouldn't classify it as the best drama I've ever seen but I still enjoyed watching it :D

I'm also enjoying Bloody Monday this season.

The premise of Yukan Club is superficial and shallow, the rich kids are selfish idiots suffering the woes of being able to do and afford anything, the plot goes nowhere, and the mysteries are below Scooby Doo level. But I did laugh consistantly, sometimes at it rather than from it. If you're basically looking for some fluffy comedy and JE boys to ogle, you could give the first episodes a shot to see how you feel.
Currently Watching: Unubore Deka, Atami no Sousakan, Hotaru no Hikari 2, Sleeping Forest, Orange Days, Yabe Kenzo, Shinzanmono, Tsuki no Koibito, Asami Mitsuhiko.

Not sure if there's a particular genre that you'd prefer, but here's a few titles that I liked. All are finished and completely subbed:

Romantic Comedy

Long Vacation
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Long_Vacation

Yama Onna Kabe Onna (ending's a bit open, but cute and happy)
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Yama_Onna_Kabe_Onna

Utahime
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Utahime

Family/Comedy

Konshu Tsuma ga Uwaki Shimasu (the later subs are from Chinese dvds and are on page 5 of the sub thread.)
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Konshu_Tsuma_ga_Uwaki_Shimasu

Comedy

Tiger and Dragon
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Tiger_&_Dragon

Medical Drama

Iryu Team Medical Dragon
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Iryu

Mystery/Detective

Galileo
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Galileo

Gonzo Densetsu no Keiji (very character driven story rather than unconnected cases)
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Gonzo

Hard to classify... HumanDrama/Mystery/Comedy/Inspirational...

Ashita no Kita Yoshio
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Ashita_no,_Kita_Yoshio

I agree 100%, it's one of those shows that I pretty much enjoyed but can't exactly recommend.


:lol I like that description.

I already watched "long vacation" (it was a long time ago...)and "Yama Onna Kabe Onna " more recently but it will not stay in my memory.

I think I'll try "Utahime" "Konshu Tsuma ga Uwaki Shimasu" and "Ashita no Kita Yoshio "
thanks for ur suggestions :-)

mizune wrote:^In that case, here are some ideas you may want to try out besides Celeb to Binbo Taro:
These two, I have seen and am really enjoying so far. Both have some element of mystery involved. (This season is full of mysteries, it seems).
Team Batista no Eiko - Quirky medical mystery/thriller similar to Trick or Galileo in its mix of humor and seriousness (closer to Galileo though).
Dandan - Recent NHK asadorama with a bit of mystery so far. I'm not sure how appealing these dramas are to school aged kids, but this story seems pretty interesting to me so far.

She might also like Ryusei no Kizuna. Another dark comedic mystery. There is a little bit of humor about sex, but I'll leave that to you about how appropriate it is for your daughter. I don't think it's too bad and sincerely doubt it will progress beyond the level of jokes in the 1st ep.

Otherwise, based on the actors involved and descriptions (I haven't seen any of these,so I can't say much):
Oh! My! Girl! - AllI know is that it stars Hayami Mokomichi who seems pretty popular with girls.
Scrap Teacher - School based drama
Room of King - Comedy based on an interesting concept starring another young star popular with the girls.
Bloody Monday - Starring another young idol/actor.
Thank you Mizune ! It's very helpful information! :-)

Recommendations Pls.

Post by LancerReiNi » Nov 1st, '08, 05:23

I'm looking for dramas that are similar to "Densha Otoko" & "Kekkon Dekinai Otoko". Basically shows where the main characters are somewhat misunderstood and even ****(but have the intelligence or corkiness to pull it off). I really enjoyed "Kekkon Dekinai Otoko" because of Hiroshi Abe's performance. It reminded me very much of the American show "House"(even though I barely watch it).

Before anyone mentions it, I've seen/enjoyed these jdramas so far:
"At Home Dad"
"Change"
"Style"
"Dream Again"
"Giragira"(even though it's not complete yet)
"Celeb to Binbo"
"Golden Bowl"


Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Haken no Hinkaku (Good)
Teru Teru Ashita (Good)

Taiyo to Umi no Kyoshitsu (Bad)
Yakusha Damashii (Bad)
Code blue (So so, not as good as I thought.)
Gonzo (So so, slightly below average)
Bara no nai Hanaya (Bad)
Zettai Kareshi (Bad)
Mirai Koshi Meguru (So so slightly above average)

Did you see Mahiru no Tsuki with Oda Yuji and Tokiwa Takako, Kanin?
It's not as dark as Kono yo no Hate but you could enjoy it if you liked the other one.

My favourite romance drama include:

- Utsukushii Hito, le bel Homme which is also a thriller
- Beautiful Life
- Last christmas
- Long Vacation
- Orange days
- Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi



Here is the wikidrama page for Change, Ino-Chan; in a few words Its about a newbie in the politician world who becomes the first minister. He refuses to be a puppet and tries to change the politics. Kimu Taku is the lead actor.
Not a bad drama, but I was expecting a more original script.

In one word, no, Ino-chan ^^
But It's a quite pleasant drama to watch. Not a heavy story, It's more Kimu Taku will have to solve an issue by episode.

After watching a few new dramas I have to add more to my fav list lol.
Jotei- Just gotta watch!

Psych Eijie- Feels almost like IWGP in my opinion

Itsumo Futari de- This was the first drama I've ever watched but didn't finish til recently when I was able to download it rather than catching it on tv once a week.

Life- One brutal school bullying drama.

Bara no nai Hanaya- This is great, I love the characters and the feel of it even the gradual change in the characters as things are revealed is great.

Ningen no Shoumei

I haven't been watching to many dramas recently since most of my time been taken up by korean horror flicks but I'm still searching for some good dark dramas ^.^

Thanks I read about Mahiru no Tsuki and have put it on my see-list but the only reason I'm hesitant is because I don't like Oda since I saw Last Christmas. After seeing Taiyo to Umi I was even more convinced his acting is not in my taste. But maybe Mahiru is better.


So fare from reading posts here I'm considering:

Maou
Byakuyako
Mahiru no Tsuki
Kou Kou Kyoushi


there are probably more I should consider watching too.

I can recommend Byakuyako now. It was one of the best series I've seen.

Are there anymore dramas in the same style as Byakuyako.

I can think of these so far:

Mahiru no Tsuki
Kou Kou Kyoushi
Beautiful life
Million stars falling
Aoi Tori
1 litre of tears
Strawberry on the shortcake
Summer snow

So... what's good this season? I've heard decent things about Bloody Monday, so I'm gonna give that a try. Anything else worth looking at?

Also, I've been pretty busy this year. The only '08 shows I've seen are the hosptial ones from the summer, Maou, and Yasuko to Kenji. I miss any good stuff since '07?

Definitely give Bloody Monday a try. Others I'm liking from this season:
-Oh! My Girl!
-Celeb to Binbou Taro
-Ryusei no Kizuna
-Giragira
-Room of King

After watching a bunch of detective dramas, now I'm curious as to how many have been made so far and are there more that you recommend. So far I've watched:

Tantei Gakuen Q
Trick
Liar Game (does this count)
Puzzle
Remote
Galileo
Kimi Hannin Janai yo ne

I guess I became a sucker for solving crimes and mysteries. Do you have any recommendations that I haven't seen yet?

Oh Mwulf for this season, I recommend watching Bloody Monday as well as Nanase Futatabi because even though this one is so underrated, I think it's one of the best this season.

Mmm i don't think liar game really fits into the category. DEFINITELY catch Maou. Excellent plot with very good acting by the leads. I love the pacing as well

^ Oh seen Maou already, but that isn't really detective since they are only trying to solve one case. I prefer the multi-case episodes that has no relation whatsoever with each other but still somehow ties the story together (does that even make sense?)

Thanks shadow-of-sin, I'll try Unfair since it has lots of seeders.

For you avid Jdorama fans, well ok anyone, what would you recommend for something that has a similar feel as Long Love Letter aka Drifting Classroom? Like something ambiguous or sci-fi- ish (is that a word) on the beginning but as the story progresses, everything comes together and all is explained in the end. A drama that makes you think :idea:

Or could be something like Ima Ai ni Yukimasu that has a simple melancholic atmosphere but a BIG twist ending.

Oh, well Unfair is more like Maou where they are trying to catch one criminal. If you want something with multi-case episodes then you might want to look at Puzzle 2008, Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbou 3 or Jikou Keisatsu.

Man, there are a TON of episodic-type detective mysteries out there. Other series not mentioned already (off the top of my head and not necessarily recommendations...depends on what kind of mystery you like):
33 pun Tantei
Gonzo ~ Densetsu no Keiji (there is an overarching case, but I think most of the episodes can be considered fairly self-contained)
HERO
Fugoh Keiji Series
Kochira Hon Ikegami Sho Series
Odoru Daisousassen
Keiji no Genba

I know there are plenty more than that too...

You might want to try:
Ame to Yume no Ato ni and it's "sister" drama Teru Teru Ashita
Sexy Voice and Robo (terribly underrated and underwatched series... kinda fits the mystery thing too)
Flowers for Algernon
YASHA
Ashita no Kita Yoshio (sort of)
And this might be a stretch, but Queen's Classroom/Jyoou no Kyoushitsu kind of fits this description as well.

All of these series have been completely subbed (but not all are on the tracker here....yet...).

Thank you very much for your replies.

I downloaded KOIZORA yesterday and watched all episodes. I never cried that long in my entire life. After watching I was searching the web for any proof that Hiro was actually still alive and only an actor. :)

What a beautiful story. I hope this will be translated and shown in my country some day.

There is another question I have. Would anybody know a good place to download other Japanese TV shows, like comedy, etc. I love drama but I am also interested in other Japanese TV.

I was blown away.

Hey everybody, greetings from Greece! I started watching jdorama almost a year ago and I became a real fun...I have watched several series and the thing that I love the most is that these series last fortunately about 10 to 12 episodes...I really liked "101 marriage proposals" and "bus driver"...my question is could someone suggest some jdorama like the above I just mentioned? Thanks and keep up the good job!

101 Marriage Proposals was i think my 1st jdrama back in 1991 with one of the best OST "Say Yes" i've enjoyed til today. If u'r talking abt that same old drama i've watched, then i recommend:
Love Generation
Long Vacation

If you're looking for tearjerkers, I have to recommend Sekai no Chuushin de, Ai wo Sakebu. I didn't cry at Koizora (I only watched the movie, not the drama), but Sekaichuu had me sobbing. It's one of my all-time favorite j-dramas.

I saw the movie Koizora and I thought it was pretty bad so maybe I see Daisuki first then.

Yes I've seen Sekai, it was good but not anything near 1 litre.

Very few dramas can ever come close to 1 litre no Namida cause it had roughly 7 out of 11 episodes that were fantastic and the rest were just great. Not many series can compete with that.

Yes I've seen Sekai, it was good but not anything near 1 litre.

Very few dramas can ever come close to 1 litre no Namida cause it had roughly 7 out of 11 episodes that were fantastic and the rest were just great. Not many series can compete with that.
I share the same sentiments that Koizora movie wasn't as good as its rave reviews found everywhere. Koizora jdrama i'd really only recommend if u'r a fan of the movie. Actually i found the jdrama better than the jmovie. Heavenly Forest still rules as my fav jmovie of the genre ... it's beautiful n enchanting ... give it a try.

Daisuki, on the other hand i find a very good inspiring n highly recommended jdrama of the human genre. I'm not a parent but learnt a lot from Daisuki about raising a child through different age stages, and what it takes to be a good parent. Karina's acting was superb. It's the next best crying drama i've watched since 1 Litre of Tears.

Umizaru and Unfair are both very good.
Read the D-Addicts FAQ before asking questions.
No movies here, so please don't request. Check the Asian Movie Torrent Links.

I sooooo love Hanazakari no Kimitachi e. I watched all episodes in one sitting -- 12 straight hours. I also watched the special without subtitles though I don't understand a word of Japanese. It's adapted from the manga of the same name and has also been produced as a series in Taiwan (so a Taiwan version exists). It deviates a little from the manga and Taiwan, and if you ask me, the jdorama is way, way, way, way better than either of the two. It spawned a cult following here at d-addicts and the special was the most anticipated show this summer. It catapulted both Horikita Maki and Ikuta Toma to superstardom. And only a brickwall can resist the charm of Oguri Shun.

This series started me into a binge of downloading -- live action jdoramas, animés and mangas. Because of Hana Kimi, I discovered Zettai Kareshi, Kirasagi, Deru Toko Demasho, Honey and Clover, Nobuta wo Produce, Ouran High Host Club, School Rumble, Itazura na Kiss, W Juliet, etc.

Hana Kimi the series and the special were subbed by SARS.

Other highschool themed jodramas which I have downloaded but haven't watched yet are:
Rookies
Gakko Ja Oshierarenia
Yukan Club
Gokusen 1,2,3
Itazura na Kiss (live action)

As for a highshcool themed movie, I recommend the 2004 Korean movie "He Was Cool". It's really, really good and hilarious. The girl is really funny, too bad she's no longer with us. Although the ending is as predictable as they come, how they get there is very entertaining.

Are there any new shows with geeky main characters as in Akihabara@DEEP or Densha Otoko? The cold season is upon me and I am looking for something funny to watch.

Kurosagi is also about swindlers.
Trick is very nice too
If you are looking for more suspense dramas, there is SP (Security Police) and currently running Bloody Mondey which is in my opinion the best drama of this season.
