2. Romcoms, more on childhood friends then grew then things happen
Since no one else has mentioned it, the first show I saw Toda Erika in (and one of my first j-drama's) was Summer Nude. Excellent show and a good way to get into j-drama's.

Maybe you can try these :-)
- Platonic
- Second Love

How about Nemureru Mori no Jukujo? An really awesome drama about age difference and relationship problems.

What good food jdramas would you recommend?

I got hooked to jdramas with Kodoku no gurume. It is a masterpiece in my
opinion. (Incidentally, does anyone know if a new season is upcoming or
they just didn't renew it?)

I'm also enjoying Hondana Shokudo, following fellow Earth Buri's
subtitles as they come along.

Anything similar?

If you haven't checked it out, I'd highly recommend Shinya Shokudo. Apparently, there's a Korean version that's on now, but I Haven't seen it. I also liked Coffee-ya no Hitobito. On a completely different note, I did watch and really enjoy Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san, but it's not quite in the same genre :-)

From the top of my head: :whistling:
- Nodame Cantabile: Very eccentric musicians, however they play classical music...
- Kimi wa Petto: Dancer lives as a pet...
- Ikemen Desu Ne: Rock band gets a new singer, but he gets into trouble (?), so the manager gets his twin sister (a nun) for stepping in...
- Idols: Three girls running from the yakuza, take male clothes, and get casted as a boy-band...
These are Japanese doramas, but i think all of them have Korean adaptation... (Maybe the last one does not... :scratch: )

Edit:
There is also the movie Oresama: A pop-star gets back in time to help his younger self in soccer, etc...

Food drama: Lunch Queen (Lunch no Joou) starring very pretty Yuko Takeuchi, but with shorter hair. Demiglace sauce this. Demiglace sauce that.

From top of my head:
  • Osen : About a traditional restaurant, but mostly about its people...
  • Sushi Oji : It is about a martial art / sushi chef student, who gets through training in both at the same time...
  • Hungry! : It is about a guy, who left his rock band to revive his parent's French restaurant...
  • Dinner : About an Italian restaurant...
Also some Movies:
  • Chonmage Purin : About a jobless samurai, that slips to through time, to become a patisser...
  • Tampopo : This movie consist scenes that are loosely connected, but all centered around food.
    There is also a main storyline: Some truck drivers help a widow to revive her ramen shop...
  • The Ramen Girl : American girlfriend left alone in Tokyo decides to become a ramen chef...
  • Nonchan Noriben : About a single mom, and her starting a bento making business...
  • Sukiyaki : The prisoners are given sukiyaki once in a while, (which is a traditional family meal,) so they can remember their families...
Oh, and there are also many episodes of Begin Japanology, that deals with food, from bento and wasabi to school meals and kaiseki cuisine (that is western cuisine, with a Japanese touch)...

pack somewhere?

Ramen Girl is one of my all time favorites starring Brittney Murphy and the short stocky older actor from I'm Home & Musashi, Space Battleship Yamato. The scene where he tells her to come at 5am and she keeps high fiving him was so funny. The ending song was good too.

I watched the first episode of Kaeru no Oujo-sama (about choir) that I saw recommended by someone else, and I didn't like it. Characters weren't interesting. Neither was the story.

AvistaZ has a lot of Begin Japanology: there are some seasons, and also some standalone episodes, too...
Also, all of the above mentioned dorama and movies can be downloaded from my FTP server...

Hi :D
Can someone suggest me good:
-Woman power, career drama (like BOSS, Doctor X, nasake no onna, haken no hinkaku, etc etc)?
-Comedy (Not the foolish one, but rather thought provoking. Something like Oniyome Nikki and Kekkon dekinai otoko would be fine ;) )
Thanks

Strawberry Night has strong female as the only female squad/section leader of the police detectives.

Hunter Sono Onna Tachi has a group of women coming together to do bounty hunting. It's not super serious.

Hana Yori Dango has strong high school/college girl fighting back against privileged bullies.

I've never thought of a non-foolish comedy before. Not sure if such a thing exists. I prefer goofy characters like in Mr. Brain.

Koshonin has strong willed woman as the only woman police field negotiator.

Kemonomichi might fall under career strong woman. Maybe Monster Parent too. I tend to like to watch Ryoko Yonekura.

From Top of my head:
  • Suppri (A career woman thinks men as only supplements to her work. Or something like that...)
  • Kimi wa Petto (Single woman takes in a boy, as a pet.)
  • Kiina (Detective with special "talent"...)
  • Gokusen (Daughter of a yakuza family teaches in a high school...)
  • Pro Golfer Hana (OL becomes professional golfer)
  • Tokyo Friends (Country girl travels to Tokyo, and becomes famous rock singer...) This concludes in a movie of the same title...
  • Star no Koi (Movie star announces she's marrying a company employee, noone ever heard of...)
  • Muscle Girl (The daughter takes her father's role as the manager of the all female wrestling team.)
  • Sailor Fuku to Kikanju (A schoolgirl becomes the leader of a yakuza gang.) There are multiple versions of this story, may fav. is the 2006. one.
  • Alice no Toge (Woman becomes a surgeon, to frame the doctors, who killed her father.)
  • Ikemen desu ne (Rock band gets new singer, but something has happened with him, so the manager secretly exchanges him with his twin sister, who is a nun...)
Edit:
Some of these, like Kekkon dekinai otoko, Ikemen desu ne and Kimi wa Petto has Korean adaptation, too.

Thanks for all your suggestion. I tend to watch Yone-tan's drama too (along with Amami Yuki's). They are my most favorite actresses haha. Unfortunately, I have watched all your suggestions XD. Do you have other dramas to recommend haha . Maybe any genre is okay as long it is good and not too dark. (Not for the mood of dark dramas like Kemonomichi now. Feeling a bit down and need more laugh haha).

Thanks.. I love Pro Golfer hana. The jokes are a bit childish but so funny lol. And the comedic act between the coach, Hana and Hana's friend never failed to crack me up. Kiina is not bad but too repetetive I guess. Will try other dramas u mentioned.

Code Blue, I heard that's good also *haven't watch it actually*

Alice no Toge is quite good too, but mixed with revenge-theme~
Clinic on The sea (Shota Matsuda - Emi Takei) also quite good and amusing. :thumleft:

From top of my head:
  • Dr. Koto Tokyo surgeon goes to a small island to become a GP...
  • DOCTORS Brilliant surgeon punishes corrupt ones...
  • SATORARE "Satorare" is a phrase, that is used on people, whom thoughts are audible to everyone around them. This dorama is about a satorare doctor...
  • JIN Surgeon slips back in time to the 19th century, meets historical figures, like Sakamoto Ryoma, and in Season 2, also changes history, in a very unique way...

Thank you!
I recommend Team Batista 3 (Do not confuse it with Iryuu). The second season is a failure, but team Batista 3 is a quite great medical drama with lots of mysteries to ponder upon. Best season among the franchise. The chemistry between the two main character is so good (unfortunately, unused in the season 2), that I want them to end up together romanticaly . (both are male thou haha). Season 1 isnt that great, but I think u should watch season 1 before season 3, since it introduce the two charas. . You can probably skip season 2 altogether lol.
Too bad the head nurse Natori Yuko appears very few times in season 2 and 3. (Still downloading season 4 lol.. )

Tbh, nothing beats Doctor X (strong, lone-wolf woman against bureaucracy <3. This really inspires me and give me spirits to do well in career!! ) and team batista 3
as a drama (not just medical drama). Doctors 3, unfortunately is quite meh. The antagonist is very fun to watch , but the story is kinda.. aimless. The first season is not bad thou and in fact, among the better one. You should try season one of doctors i think. This is one of the rare dramas where the side cast (aka the 'antagonist', suguru sensei ) outshadow the main doctor (sagara sensei).

Alice no toge. if you watch enough japanese dramas, it is very predictable. and the revenge in the end is half-assedly done. (If it is even called revenge to begin with. her method of revenge is sloppy.. which makes the plot very weak!)
The rest of medical dramas (dr koto etc) arent that great.. unless you want to watch for medical knowledge purposes, rather than the plot.

Code blue is among the worst one thou. Their chemistry imho isnt that good. They dont look as a team. Iryu's team is more solid in terms of chemistry than this one. Code blue's team looks pretentious in away.

Must watch:
-Oniyome Nikki season 1(Very funny and heartwarming. One of best Japanese family/comedy. The genre is not really just abt mom friendship, but it is one of the BIG highlight! In fact, i love how the two housewives/main chara's friend is greatly influenced by Sanae/main chara)
-Saitou san 1&2 (About strong mum whose initially was hated but gain respect by the mothers around her. Well, not really.. but
it is very heartwarming too, though not as good/deep/heavy as Namae wo Nakushita megami. Love it more than Miother game though)

Another good one (but this focus is not on friendship/housewives, but rather housewives and housedads): At Home dad
(made by same producer of Oniyome Nikki. This was in fact the predecessors. About the real (it was more realistic than oniyome nikki) struggle of housedad to fit in in housewives duty and
environment, and of course, include friendship. As a big bonus, Abe Hiroshi as housedad!)


Housewives/women join power to solve mistery:
-SCANDAL
-HUNTER .. Onna tachi (This is really a stretch but friendship between women of different class and status formed when they are doing Bounty Hunter)
Please give feedback if u watch any of them :D

Alice no Toge is quite good too, but mixed with revenge-theme~
Clinic on The sea (Shota Matsuda - Emi Takei) also quite good and amusing. :thumleft:
thank you! i'm enjoying both code blue and clinic on the sea right now xD!

From top of my head:
  • Dr. Koto Tokyo surgeon goes to a small island to become a GP...
  • DOCTORS Brilliant surgeon punishes corrupt ones...
  • SATORARE "Satorare" is a phrase, that is used on people, whom thoughts are audible to everyone around them. This dorama is about a satorare doctor...
  • JIN Surgeon slips back in time to the 19th century, meets historical figures, like Sakamoto Ryoma, and in Season 2, also changes history, in a very unique way...
oh, is that Dr.Koto from the same name of the manga!? (i didn't know there was a live series !)

I'm checking out Doctors, will do later for satorare and JIN :D!
uedajirou wrote: I recommend Team Batista 3 (Do not confuse it with Iryuu). The second season is a failure, but team Batista 3 is a quite great medical drama with lots of mysteries to ponder upon. Best season among the franchise. The chemistry between the two main character is so good (unfortunately, unused in the season 2), that I want them to end up together romanticaly . (both are male thou haha). Season 1 isnt that great, but I think u should watch season 1 before season 3, since it introduce the two charas. . You can probably skip season 2 altogether lol.
Too bad the head nurse Natori Yuko appears very few times in season 2 and 3. (Still downloading season 4 lol.. )

Tbh, nothing beats Doctor X (strong, lone-wolf woman against bureaucracy <3. This really inspires me and give me spirits to do well in career!! ) and team batista 3
as a drama (not just medical drama). Doctors 3, unfortunately is quite meh. The antagonist is very fun to watch , but the story is kinda.. aimless. The first season is not bad thou and in fact, among the better one. You should try season one of doctors i think. This is one of the rare dramas where the side cast (aka the 'antagonist', suguru sensei ) outshadow the main doctor (sagara sensei).
guess I'll start Team Batista with the first season and see if the 2nd's season acceptable before skipping to the 3rd.. (i usually dislike skipping episodes or seasons unless it's horribly horrible ;-;")

lol, Doctor X, I like that series too! especially the first one xD
(although i felt the more episodes were out, the more unreasonable/too exaggerate it is.... ;-;"
well, not like i have watched that much dramas though... in terms of medical story/explanation i prefer Iryu over @@"..)

I really love the 1st season though, many things were unexpected..(i really didn't think such thing would slip into the bloodstream through a wound..!), the 2nd season's male lead(?) is great, his role and character is much more prominent than the 1st lol"
as for the 3rd... that's where i felt they exaggerated too much (and without much explanations/medical surprising things unlike the 1st season...
they kinda came in like, ok here i got this cancer/tumor which is REAAAAALLY difficult to remove/do surgery with, then Daimon-sensei just removes it out, done.... @_@")

and well, another reason i love the 1st season is because the cool/calm Jounouchi-sensei :3
(imo she doesn't have that much of a spot/significant to the plot in season 2 and 3.... ;-;", and she's more of a cheerful than the quiet/strict in season 1 << not exactly a bad thing though)

the summary/plot for each series is very interesting too...!

i tried searching, and i got the subs for Namae o Nakushita Megami, Mother Game, Abarenbo Mama
I can't find the raws, where can I get them?
(as for Saitou-san that sounds really like the housewife version of Doctor X.....LOL"
i can't find any raws&subs though :/")

Well, Unlike the Iryu, Doctor X is more plot driven and it is not pure medical drama but more like ippiki ookami (lone wolf) against bureaucraucy, particularly women (which is still prejudiced in Japan.That is why lotsof fans of the series are women, compared to Iryu for exampe . This series is kinda specially catered for Japanese market). That is why less attention on medical explanation, but rather politics and how the main chara responds to it. Idk, but the less they focus on the medical part, the higher the rating it is in season 2. That is why they are overdoing it in season3. I would say season 3 is really rushed indeed. It was less fascinating in a way than season 1 and season 2. But it was surprising to see japanese public says otherwise, where lots of people says season 3 is more better in their opinion. They even love tiniest details. Like the episode when Hara comes back and cries in front of the doctors, the videos were like all over the net. And also like the part where Daimon says to Kaji "To the patient, you are the only doctor!". etc etc.

Iryu thou.. idk but the explaination in the medical conditions are great. But nothing much to enjoy in the plot-wise. I mean, not all audience loves medical term without plot.
Team Batista is quite balanced in terms of plots, mystery and medical condition. Though, they are from different angle.

You can find all videos in asiatorrents

Yes, "ippiki ookami", that tagline repeated in every episode :D
(what was the rest? burei wo kirai, sokube wo kirai, then something something wo kirai xDDD" still gotta listen/watch more J-dramas.. they speak SO much faster than animes/audio dramas lol"!)

oh..really? I didn't know people in Japan (or anywhere else) prefers it that way @_@".... (i'm not in into any drama communities/news yet, relatively new here Dx")

but i guess so... i mean if i didn't have medical knowledge i guess I won't understand Iryu
(like my friends, alot of them love Doctor X, but they said Iryu is too hard for them to understand)

but for the plot... season 3's still too...straightforward @__@"
(especially how they ended the last ep in a few minutes is where i felt it was really really bad :/")

but isn't politics/bureacraucy in almost every movie/drama..? (I don't know about this, but at least dramas in my country are like that o-o" they used it as a plot though, but never solved or overcame..)

don't they have small details in every episodes since season 1? like how Jounouchi-sensei is always playing around with things while she is bored xD

p.s. thanks for the site,
edit:
you're right...! i can find most torrents here...with seeders......!! omg, thank you so much xD!!!!
(i still can't find Kenji Onijima Heihachiro though...whether raws or subs..i guess no one watches this at all OTL||| *sobs*)

It did felt quite rushed. But imho, the last two episodes, especially about the last two episodes were really great, imho. Well, maybe beside the vague ending. But jdrama often has vague, confusing ending lol. ANd there are Indeed lots of qns posted in sns about the ending. (Btw, the last episode reach peaks viewership of 31.1% or 31.3%, I cant remember.
some of them asked in boards and sns and even yahoo qns about whether the ending was that daimon sensei failed and the subsequent scene was just a dream. afterall, it was different from the usual ending. and there is no transition between the surgery and the subsequent scene. But many refutes this claim thou
. The third season does incorporate lots of current japanese trend which the writer includes: kabedon (i remember this scene was mistranslated in the english sub), dame yo dame dame, furikome sagi (well, this is old haha), etc etc. The third season is created differently than the two seasons, which I regretted too. This time round, Daimon sensei somehow made lots of great quote abt what good doctor is and even there was one episode on akira san explaining on why she said 'she never fails' and Jyounouchi sensei explain abt Daimon's good pt.
In the ending, Tendo souchou was touched by Daimon's genuinity and focus on the original aim of medicine. Ebina kyouji , for the first time, do not suck up to his boss, which he always had done. etc etc. The head nurse, etc etc. It was rather shown how Daimon Michiko changed the environment, whether it is shown obviously or not.
. I wish the season 4 next year will come back to its original route and doesnt end up like Doctors and Iryu lol.
I will post the narration later.

yeah the ending... i thought i was the only one that thought that to myself!?, and the few minutes of ending felt really really weird to me
but the other people (around me) only thought like "dang, it ended already, i need more!" without any questions ;-;"

some even said to me since she cured her shishou so there's nothing greater than that @_@"????
since i mean like, it's like gosh-dwam near impossible to remove all those...!!
just on tumor in the brain is already freaggin' hard to survive/go back to normal life, which is why i said it exaggerates so much @_@"
and yes, i do think that the souchou in the 3rd season was the best/pretty different from the other two, not so predictable/same old corrupted like the previous two lol"

boy, i'm always late to discuss any shows/anime/series TT^TT"
(i'm like, literally freakin' crazy with this show primary because of Jounouchi-sensei)

anything's fine, as long as i get MOAR Uchida Yuki, medical-related series, and more to learn about Japanese and its tradition/culture...! :D

Well I have been loving her dramas, even romance one like Ohitorisama haha. But the one that level her up in my favorite actress is Oniyome Nikki. I have rewatched few times and it cant get old lol. So funny and it pushes me want to have courage like her haha. Too bad the season 2 is not as funny :(. It seems like they change the director ot something :x. But in oniyome nikki, there are few of reference to At Home dad lol. Aftterall, the two charas and the housing at Oniyome nikki (season 1 only) are the same with at home dad

Hi!
I didn't watch many jdramas but i'm very interested so i'm looking for suggestion! Both films and tv shows are welcome.
I like music-centered dramas, romcoms are okay of course, comedy - if it's not too esaggerated, it's too embarassing, ahah! - is welcome as well! I like it more when it leaves you with your heart half broken. I don't like the "the girl in disguise as a boy" thing, so, if there's something without it...well, good! And...Also yakuza things are welcome as well, or money/power related (?). Did i already said i like them more when they leave you with your heart half broken, right?
I usually look for this kind of things, if you have any suggestion please, tell me! Thank you! :wub:

I am watching Shichinin Onna Bengoshi in youtube. Unfortunately, they only have season 2. Anyone has the first season? Thanks!
It is very interesting drama anyway.

I didn't watch many jdramas but i'm very interested so i'm looking for suggestion! Both films and tv shows are welcome.
I like music-centered dramas, romcoms are okay of course, comedy - if it's not too esaggerated, it's too embarassing, ahah! - is welcome as well! I like it more when it leaves you with your heart half broken. I don't like the "the girl in disguise as a boy" thing, so, if there's something without it...well, good! And...Also yakuza things are welcome as well, or money/power related (?). Did i already said i like them more when they leave you with your heart half broken, right?
I usually look for this kind of things, if you have any suggestion please, tell me! Thank you! :wub:

My fav. crime dorama is Shinzanmon: In each episode the protagonists investigate different suspects just to clear them... Well, except the last one...
From the top of my head (some comedic ones first):
  • Deka Wanko A girl with a "better-than-a-dog's" sense of smell becomes detective...
  • Fugō Keiji Granddaughter of a millionaire becomes policewoman, and helps in ways normal police operations cannot afford...
  • Trick Useless prof with a female magician solve mystic and unnatural cases. Has 3 seasons, some TV and movie films, too...
  • Sakura "Chameleon" policewoman investigates covertly, even from her coworkers...
  • Tantei Gakuen Q School-kids (from 1st grader to university dropout) solve crimes. First comes TV movie and then the dorama.
  • Tobo Bengoshi Lawyer is accused with the murder of his mentor and boss. While he is running from police and his former coworkers, still trying to help people...
  • Joker A secret society punishes criminals the police cannot arrest...
My other favorite is Playgirl, a Japanese Charlie's Angels prequel... (Playgirl Q was a not too well received spin-off.)

I got hooked to jdramas with Kodoku no gurume. It is a masterpiece in my
opinion. (Incidentally, does anyone know if a new season is upcoming or
they just didn't renew it?)

I'm also enjoying Hondana Shokudo, following fellow Earth Buri's
subtitles as they come along.

Anything similar?
Season 5 of Kodoku No Gurume will begin October 2. There are also a bunch of specials all this month (September).

hello again o_O"

a female friend of mine had asked me dramas with genres about musical, food, occupation-related (that is not about housedads/wives, doctors and lawyers) - like business stuff, architectural, a tv show about movie/drama making or something else.....?? (is there even one??),s
suspense/thriller with atypical settings..(she said she once saw a drama about submarines..? but didn't know what the title/name is...),
and a story about "two (or more) people with uncommon relationships"...(I have no idea what she means, but i guess probably maybe something like people of different family/background staying together because of something..??)

and i haven't watched any of them yet..so i was hoping for recommendations from here @_@" (still busy watching majorly medical/crime-police series here in which she says she finds it boring with doctors and straightforwards plots lol")

thankyou!

From the top of my head:
  • Shūden Gohan: Korean-Japanese couple always cook diner, even if the man gets home on the last train...
  • Rāmen daisuki Koizumi-san: A schoolgirl, fixated on ramen, eating different one every day.
  • Shinzanmono: Solving a crime, a detective get to know the people of the district, and solving unrelated things...
  • Shinya Shokudo: A restaurant, open from midnight to 7:00 AM, with a wide range of customers: from poet to yakuza, and from older TV star to gay club owner. Every episode titled about a food, and after the episode always tell some tips&tricks to the recipe...
  • 3 nen B gumi Kinpachi Sensei: Middle school teacher faces everyday problems in school. It has several seasons, the first made in the 70's. Each season showing actual problems in schools, like bullying, violence, SID, and others. Many later star started/boosted his/her career as a student in Kinpachi Sensei, EG. Ueto Aya. The protagonist played by Takeda Tetsuya, a then popular singer, who became very famous with this role.
  • Yamada Tarō Monogatari: Poor and hungry boy in an elite school. With many lovable characters, and much humor...
  • Neko Zamurai: It is about a fierce samurai, who is hired to kill a cat, believed to be a demon. He cannot force himself to kill the cat, so he take it in, and try to hide it from the ones hired him...
  • Kimi no Te ga Sasayaite Iru: The life of a deaf girl, from first day in company, to bringing up her daughter. It is not really a series, but five TV-movie, made a year apart each other, showing different stages of her life, and also the problems she faces as a deaf person.
There are also many historical dramas, that depict the life of the Japanese in different eras. My favorite is Musashi, which is about Miyamoto Musashi, based on the Yoshikawa book.

Hey guys and gals,

I am currently looking into JDramas which are predominantly set in nature or rural landscapes for a paper I am working on. I would be very thankful for some suggestions. So far looking for Dramas which were set in Okinawa or Hokkaido wasn't very fruitful for they are mostly family based and targeted at an older audience or historical dorama; I'm looking for something in a contemporary time frame. Due to the recent trend of escaping to the rural areas I thought it'd be interesting to look at the depictions of nature and landscape in dorama targeted at a younger demographic.

I know this is quite specific, but I hope that there are some at least that fit this description. The only one I was able to think of was something along the lines of Amachan! (which I only saw partially because without subs it at some point got too stressful to watch since my Japanese is way too rusty nowadays). Hopefully there are at least some dorama that fit this description.

A Chorus of Angles (Kita no Kanariatachi - 北のカナリアたち)
Based on Kanae Minato's short story "Nijunengo no Shukudai,” from Kanae Minato's "Oufuku Shokan" (September 21, 2010 - published by Gentosha).

20 years ago, an elementary school student falls on an island in the northern tip of Hokkaido. A teacher and 6 students makes contact through songs. What happened to the student who fell? The teacher returns 20 years later to meet with her former students.

So far, Engine is not bad. Not sure if Kimura Takuya usually picks good characters to play or if I'm just mezmorized by his pretty boy looks or charisma. There were a handful of his dramas I didn't like (Tsuki no Koibito, I'm Home, Sora Kara Ichioku...).

Also, you don't see a lot of shows from the late 1990s or early 2000s. I want to re-watch some shows I remember having some great theme songs.

Have to recommend Engine. It was my first J-Drama and I was impressed by it enough to actually start watching others. It has a great balance between the racing and the home stuff. That ending perfectly fits the show though.

Hard to decide what to watch next that I can actually find. Just finished Jiu, which was not bad and not great either. Some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves by Meisa Kuroki.

What's good that showcases some very good looking likeable Japanese actresses? What's good that has CAGNET music aside from Long Vacation and Love Generation?

Any good shows that came out within past couple of years?

Stayed away from Great Teacher Onizuka (1998) thinking I didn't have interest in another teenage school story with former gang member, but it was pretty good. Nanako Matsushima is super duper pretty and her voice is so attractive. The GTO actor himself did a great job of being a bit dopey.

Not sure if I want to watch the re-cast GTO series.

What's the story behind Kaseifu no Mita going from Nanako to Ryoko Yonekura?

Not sure if I want to watch the re-cast GTO series.

What's the story behind Kaseifu no Mita going from Nanako to Ryoko Yonekura?
Kaseifu no Mita and Kaseifu wa Mita are totally different. The title of Nanako's Kaseifu no Mita (Literal title: Mita The Housekeeper) itself is largely inspired by very old TV asahi populae trademark dramas titled Kaseifu wa Mita! (Literal title: the House Keeper saw it!). Yonekura's Kaseifu wa Mita! is a rehash or rather, a part of the TV asahi franchise Kaseifu wa Mita!. Some people thought Kaseifu wa Mita is inspired by Kaseifu no Mita, which is actually the other way round. It is Kaseifu no Mita which is inspired by the franchise


Tbh, I would enjoy Kaseifu no Mita if Nanako acts better

You should watch Voice which is about a bunch of forensic student try to solve the mystery behind a person death through autposy. it is quite an interesting dorama for me :-)
