Please help me find this drama! This is a japanese drama about a really tall girl (no its not Lovely Complex!) who eventually falls in love with a really tall boy. the boy stays over in her house because of study and I think he attends college or high school just like her.

the girl really likes EATING. and the drama starts out when she was young. One specific scene was that she stole strawberries offered to the temple and then she later received strawberry jam from the mayor of the town. Her family owns a restaurant, her dad is a cook (french I think).

Anyone know the name of this 1989 TV show starring Beat Kitano?

Post by DavesArchive » Feb 18th, '15, 21:37

Anyone know the name of this 1989 TV show starring Beat Kitano? Here are a few screen caps of the intro to the show. It's a variety/comedy show. I have about 10 tapes of this stuff, complete with really cool Japanese commercials from the late late 80's. I plan adding a retro Japanese variety show playlist to my youtube channel and this is one of the shows I'd like to add. Any help would be great!

I transferred a couple shows already and will upload the show intro soon.

Looks like it's called オレたちひょうきん族 (Oretachi Hyokinzoku), if that helps at all. Per Japanese Wikipedia, looks like it was on from 1981 to 1989.

Found it, It was a kdrama afterall - Super Rookie


Been searching for a while for a jdrama (Might be a kdrama) about 3 school friends who meet up at a bar.
one of them, the main character gets accepted into a big company due to luck. I think his resume fell on the ground and was put into accepted pin
the second one of them was living together with the main character in a small room, he was wearing classes and I think he was the smartest one of the three, but when he tried to get into the company he failed, I think he also started gambling after he failed.
the third one became a successful worker and was a really arrogant person.

On the first episode the main character and the second friend went to meet up with the third friend (arrogant one) to get some free food at a bar/restourant. The arrogant friend started belittleing the other "friends" which offended the main character so they left. Somehow they ended up trying to get into the same company that the arrogant friend went to - the main character got in due to pure luck while the second friend (smartest one, with glasses) failed to get in.

from episode 1 onwards the main character will try to do well at the company, while the second friend starts to gamble - falling lower and lower as the time goes by. I don't remember much about the arrogant friend.

would be really awesome if someone recognizes the drama! I'm off to eat something and then going to start checking through some kdramas, just in case.

Help me find a movie

Post by AusS2000 » Jun 26th, '15, 23:36

I was on a JAL flight from Tokyo to Sydney in September 2012 and I was watching a period chambara movie. It was about a civil war or insurrection between rival groups.

The only distinguishing features I remember was that one side enlisted the help of some indigenous tribe or clan and in the end betrayed them. And that there were some very effeminate court officials that turned out to be extremely good with a sword, regardless of the kimonos and makeup.

I've been trying to find this movie for years but had no luck. I'm guessing it was a recent release (>2010) but could be wrong.

Any help you can give would be most appreciated.

Hello,

Found this thread. I posted about this request in a different thread, so I hope I'm not being a nuisance. I'm hoping for someone to help me identify a jdrama but I may not have many clues at all.

A few years ago (probably), I stumbled upon a Japanese period drama (I believe it was the Edo period) while channel flipping on cable. Not too sure if the drama is by NHK as NHK is the only Japanese channel that I have on cable although a couple of other channels have broadcasted some dramas from other Japanese channels even if it's not as frequent.

When I stumbled upon the drama, it was the scene of a man and a woman trying to make the perfect sweet red bean paste. They tried and tried and tried throughout the night and finally they got the right taste of the sweet red bean paste when morning comes. I think the success will implicate the woman's standing in the business dominated by men (at least that's what I thought I understood). I've always thought that drama was about wagashi but since then I haven't seen any other episodes of that particular period drama to be sure of it.

At that time I wasn't really following japanese dramas as I haven't discovered DA so I didn't really bothered much but years passed and I learned much more about the Japanese culture and watched plenty of Japanese drama about food. So I just happened to recall this particular drama (or rather particular scene of this drama) that I watched by chance.

I really hope someone knows what drama is this and I hope it is still available on the net and that there are eng subs for it. Do advice if anyone knows.

Clues to identify drama:
- period drama (most possibly edo period)
- most likely NHK channel but not entirely sure
- there is a scene where a man and a woman were trying to succeed in making a good sweet red bean paste throughout the night
- the woman in the scene could be trying to make a name for herself in the business of sweet red bean paste making or wagashi making in a male dominated business

p/s: It's ok if you don't know the drama. I would appreciate if there are suggestions on dramas about wagashi and the business/traditions surrounding wagashi. I've watched Ando Natsu and the asadora, Asuka. I really loved these 2 dramas and enjoyed learning more about wagashi. :lol

Help Identify this Jdrama

Post by checkmate » Jul 15th, '15, 11:53

A couple of years ago I watched a Jdrama I really loved and now I can't remember the title or the names of the actors for the life of me... :scratch:
It was a romance/comedy and I think it was filmed in the late 90's or early 2000 but I'm not sure.

The protagonist was a female chef in a little italian restaurant. She lived in a small apartment with her friend and her niece, because her brother always got in trouble. The restaurant then gets bought or somehow taken over by a big company. The company CEO's son, a spoiled brat, is the male protagonist. I think somewhere in the storyline he even makes the whole staff of the restaurant work in the company's own cantine/kitchen.

Can somebody please help me? :-) :-)

A tip, you can use DramaWiki and search things like "Italian restaurant" it will check what's written in the synopsis as well.

Maybe one of these :
- Hungry!
- My Little Chef
- Mayonaka no Panya-san
- Food Fight
- Osama no Restaurant
- Hana Zubora Meshi
- Shota no Sushi

My best guess is My My Little Chef and I watched this series long time ago, it's really great drama with Abe Hiroshi there :lol

EDIT : From the description, it looks like Dinner but aired on 2013 :unsure:

Can anyone identify these DORAMAS

Post by ramberg » Aug 8th, '15, 22:13

Hi:
These are two shows that I am trying to remember the names of: maybe someone knows

1) Drama about a female news reporter that was once very famous and finds herself needing to start over at a local TV station. I think her high school aged son played hockey.
2) Drama about a male Vet and his new female assistant. The doctor is either widowed or his wife is either handicapped (blind) or had died.
3) Drama about a female doctor learning to become a surgeon. I think her father was a famous doctor.

These were all english subbed ( presumably out of Hawaii ) and shown on KTSF


I am also looking for copies of Kimpachi Sensei ( I do love that show) and Second Chance ( big Okamoto Mayo fan)


Thanks for any and all help
Jim

I have another one:

This is with a recently widowed woman with a little boy. There is one of the pre-school teachers than lives across the hall. It turns out that he graduated from Tokyo University. There is another guy who is good looking and she is attracted to; but is not parent material.
This was also a mid 90's drama and was on KTSF in San Francisco

Re: Question about Unknown JDrama / Help Identify this Jdrama

Post by ramberg » Aug 11th, '15, 00:33

Seems I posted this to the wrong thread initially. Apologies all around.

I am trying to identify the following doramas. I watched them all initially on KTSF San Francisco and I think the subtitling may have come from Kiku tv in Hawaii


1) This is with a recently widowed woman with a little boy. There is one of the pre-school teachers than lives across the hall. It turns out that he graduated from Tokyo University. There is another guy who is good looking and she is attracted to; but is not parent material.
This was originally broadcast in the mid 90's

2) Drama about a male Vet and his new female assistant. The doctor is either widowed or his wife is either handicapped (blind) or had died. I remember one plot line involved convincing a small white dog about how much he had to live for; by posting photos in his cage. Sappy I know; but it had so much heart.
mid nineties I think.


3) Drama about a female doctor learning to become a surgeon. I think her father was a famous doctor. I remember on episode dealt with learning to tie knots when one hand. early 2000's ( 2002 ???) I think



Thanks for any and all help

there was one episode in JIN (japanese) about the firemen in that timeframe (pre meiji, I think). Probably not what you're looking for - but was still nice :)

The only distinguishing features I remember was that one side enlisted the help of some indigenous tribe or clan and in the end betrayed them. And that there were some very effeminate court officials that turned out to be extremely good with a sword, regardless of the kimonos and makeup.

I've been trying to find this movie for years but had no luck. I'm guessing it was a recent release (>2010) but could be wrong.

Any help you can give would be most appreciated.

Need help finding weird Japanese drama I watched when I was younger.

Post by micwan32 » Feb 2nd, '16, 23:00

The drama was about one mother raising a kid that wasn't hers. The mother then raises the child for a few years like it was her child. A few years later (in the drama) the mother and child was at the shop on the marina when the Japanese Police (maybe the Yakuza?) take the child away from the mother. There was also a newspaper article that the mother was wanted. If i recall correctly, it was a slightly older drama from 1990-2006.

This was not an anime plot. The characters in it were real people.

I only remember it being Japanese because of the subtitles and kanji.

Maybe Youkame No Semi or Mother, though both are a bit newer.

Yuko Asano

Post by KyotoLord1986 » Feb 21st, '16, 19:02

Hello, everyone.

My name is KyotoLord1986. I am new to this forum but i've been a fan of Japanese Dramas since I can remember. I'm also a fan of Asano Yuko and I've been looking at a few of her dramas that she was featured in on YouTube. I'm looking for a drama or a movie that she was featured in the early 90s that had an aerobics theme to it, or she was working as an aerobics instructor or something like that. All I'm saying is that I want to know the name of that drama or movie in particular that featured her. If anyone can help me find it, I would appreciate it.

I have a question about a JDrama. I saw it about a year ago, but I didn't get the name. It is about a girl with Autism (I think) whop gets pregnant by another Autistic kid. The guy dies early on (was hit by a car) and the girl raises her baby with the help of her mom.

Thanks ....

Hi!

I want to ask you to help me, please!
I usually watch JDramas on internet, and 2 years ago I saw one, but I don't remember the title.

Story:
There were some boys and girls (maybe 5-5 or 6-6) in a high-school, and a new teacher (woman) came. She started a group for them. Ther was a machine, which is connected the students with each other. And the guys wanted to see the teahcer in a tanga, what was in their school locker. And one of the guys is gay, and in love with his best friend (main character), but this is revealed only in the second half of the series.

Sorry, but I only remember this. Can you help me please?
Thanks!!!

JLove wrote:Hello,

Found this thread. I posted about this request in a different thread, so I hope I'm not being a nuisance. I'm hoping for someone to help me identify a jdrama but I may not have many clues at all.

A few years ago (probably), I stumbled upon a Japanese period drama (I believe it was the Edo period) while channel flipping on cable. Not too sure if the drama is by NHK as NHK is the only Japanese channel that I have on cable although a couple of other channels have broadcasted some dramas from other Japanese channels even if it's not as frequent.

When I stumbled upon the drama, it was the scene of a man and a woman trying to make the perfect sweet red bean paste. They tried and tried and tried throughout the night and finally they got the right taste of the sweet red bean paste when morning comes. I think the success will implicate the woman's standing in the business dominated by men (at least that's what I thought I understood). I've always thought that drama was about wagashi but since then I haven't seen any other episodes of that particular period drama to be sure of it.

At that time I wasn't really following japanese dramas as I haven't discovered DA so I didn't really bothered much but years passed and I learned much more about the Japanese culture and watched plenty of Japanese drama about food. So I just happened to recall this particular drama (or rather particular scene of this drama) that I watched by chance.

I really hope someone knows what drama is this and I hope it is still available on the net and that there are eng subs for it. Do advice if anyone knows.

Clues to identify drama:
- period drama (most possibly edo period)
- most likely NHK channel but not entirely sure
- there is a scene where a man and a woman were trying to succeed in making a good sweet red bean paste throughout the night
- the woman in the scene could be trying to make a name for herself in the business of sweet red bean paste making or wagashi making in a male dominated wbusiness

p/s: It's ok if you don't know the drama. I would appreciate if there are suggestions on dramas about wagashi and the business/traditions surrounding wagashi. I've watched Ando Natsu and the asadora, Asuka. I really loved these 2 dramas and enjoyed learning more about wagashi. :lol

Please help. In the current dorama Love Song, what are the songs that Sano Sakura sings on her live performance at the end of ep3? I know the last one is 500 miles, but she sings others before, looked like a meddley.

Hi doramalover11,

Thank you so much for pointing to Ginnikan. This was it! I just finish watching this drama and the scene that I saw about the red bean paste was in the last episode haha :lol

Since it was in the last episode, I thought that this wasn't the drama but I watched anyway because it was so interesting and heart-warming. Couldn't help cry in some of the episodes. I don't think I have been as invested in a drama as I was with Gegege no Nyobo. So far, non-asadoras has never made me feel this much. Even the only other asadoras that I've watched (Gochisousan and Asuka) has not been able to replicate the impact Gegege no Nyobo has on me.

I think with serious dramas like these about people working hard for their dreams under difficult circumstances really captured my heart. These are what I considered "human drama". Drama that tugged at your heart strings and remind you to never give up in life no matter how difficult it will become.

So thank you so much for your clue to my quest. :cheers: Will be glad to hear more suggestions on what to watch!!

I remembered that I have seen this drama in around 2013. If my memory served me right, it's about the Japanese high school that have a rule that every student must wear mini skirt (like shown in the picture). One day new student join this school. She's quite shy and don't brave enough to wear those uniform. And the story go on ...

Anybody know the title of this drama?
I try to search for it by guessing that the one appear in the picture is Kie Kitano, but seem that was wrong...

Any idea ?? Thanks.

Both of them are not the one.

I have looked throughout the list of JDrama in 2013 and back to 2008; however, It's seem that D'addicts did not listed all the JDrama that have been broadcasting in Japan. The one I'm looking for is not-so-mainstream and I'm pretty sure that it's release in or before 2013.

Anyway, let's wait for someone who may know about it ... 8)

I vaguely remember it as the worst gravure idol booby show disguised as drama I've seen (well, I skipped through the first episode to see if it actually was as stupid as the description made it sound - yes, it was), probably not later than 2012/2013. I don't remember the title though, so I guess this is not very helpful, sorry.

Edit: It kinda bothered me that I couldn't remember the name, so I searched a bit more: Atsuizo!Nekogaya!!

Need help finding info about Iki no Ii Yatsu (イキのいい奴)

Post by erickgrau » Nov 30th, '16, 17:26

Hi all,

First - I'm NOT asking for torrent links or subtitle requests, I know the rules and respect them and all the work everyone does on this site.

I'm trying to find this TV series from 1987 with the star of Midnight Diner, Kaoru Kobayashi. The show (イキのいい奴) does NOT appear on any of this list of movies/tv shows/projects on any site I can find. My wife wants to watch this and so would I (if subtitles are available). Would appreciate any efforts on this - even if its only the english title ( I can't confirm that either - Good Guy?).

I need help finding this drama. I am unsure if it was a film or a TV show, but it was about a group of working women, and I believe there was 4 or 5 of them. I think the main character was very close to one of them, and the story became complex later on. I read a review about it a few months ago but I dont remember its name anymore. Sorry if it's too vague.

Hello, I once watched an Asian medical drama, and I believe it was Japanese, all I remember is seeing the scene after an earthquake hit and I haven't been able to find it since. I watched this drama ages ago, and at the same time they had a lot of people in the ER, here are all the medical shows I found that might be it. Note it was in the first episode.

Can't believe I found this great forum!

Can anyone help me recall and identify the first j-drama/jdorama I saw? Pretty sure it was already in progress (missed the initial episodes).

It was, I think, an english-subtitled New York City broadcast on WNYC Ch 31 (or possibly WNYE 25) over-the-air UHF (pre-DTV) "leased-time programming" (aka non-english language). Most likely late 20th or very early 21st century. Possibly via Fujisankei Communications Group. Also, it must have been broadcast here before Churasan - the first drama I saw from start to finish.

The plot, as best remembered focused on "the girl" - a female assistant or maybe assigned handler - whose support and unshakeable belief permitted "the guy" - a difficult, long-haired(?) concert(?) pianist - to make a come-back after some sort of fall (and loss of confidence?). Not sure if they got together at the end.

Probably no help because, but think I recall the name Noriko, as an actress or possibly her character.

(And sure hope my addled brain didn't transpose a different musical instrument into the remembered piano.)

I checked around various wikis but guess my search terms were inadequate, so thought to query the collective memory here. Thanks.

Nodame Cantabile? It's 2006 though. Chiaki plays the piano and violin, and is an aspiring conductor. With Nodame's help, he overcomes a psychological barrier and rekindles his passion for music.

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

It could also be Long Vacation (1996), which is about Sena, a pianist, who is drifting along in his music career until he meets Minami.

Thanks for the clues! And the links. It's been so long I don't really trust my memory, and it's difficult since I missed at least the first 3/4 of the series.

Didn't realize so many dramas used music as an important plot element. I don't recall the girl being a musician herself, like Nodame (rather more like a lower-level TV or concert producer assigned to babysit a troublesome artist), or a no-money/recession aspect like Long Vacation, either. But I'll check out some video clips of those two dramas to see if something triggers a memory.
