The SP cast doesn't look too promising, but the movie will have Tsutsumi Shinichi and the beautiful Matsuyuki Yasuko. Really looking forward to it now :D

Thanks for the heads up! Nice song. :cheers: For some reason, maybe it's the quality of the music video, but Shibasaki Kou looks different.

Thanks for the news. :D

I'm sad that the SP won't have Shibasaki Kou, but since Fukuyama Masaharu is still in it, that's awesome. :) And I can't wait for the movie! xD

I loved Shibasaki Kou in this drama, but still, I can't wait for the SP. Kitamura Kazuki is so intimidatingly hot and there's Miura Haruma as the young Yukawa Manabu! Personally I couldn't ask for more. :)

I was a tad sad that Kou isn't in the drama SP, but then it's a good thing we're getting a move too!

And Miura is a great actor so it'll be fun to see him act as Yukawa too.

Hey people!

Kou and Masaharu were on Music Station a few days ago and performed the theme song to the movie, Saiai.

I've uploaded the segment of the show on IMEEM. You can find the link on my blog

here

Sorry guys - I struggled in deciding whether to post the direct link to IMEEM or my blog but I chose the latter. Sorry!

Since it's a movie, I think the chances for a raw is very slim if at all because shooting in a theater is not allowed. Most likely people will wait for the DVD release later instead of the cam rip.

Finished watching the SP. It was horrible! The moment the young Yukawa shows up, it all went downhill.

Still interested in seeing the movie though.

Guys...loving the film and I can't wait to see the SP, I adore Shibasaki Kuo...and I'm a bit peeved she's not in the SP, but I'm going to watch it.

Does anyone know if there may be a Galileo Season II? I would love if it followed in the same vein as Trick and gets the three seasons.

Has anyone heard anything? Even a rumor?

The professor is supposed to be some kind of leading edge physics hot shot, but he always seems to be doing middle school science experiments. Kou-chan made this worth watching all by herself, it had almost nothing else to recommend it, IMO. She so good at the awkward, grumpy, arrogant kind of character (played seriously and as a comic send up) that any production that needs that type shouldn't even consider anyone else. She made something out of nothing here.

Actually his science experiments are functional. I've seen some Graduate school science projects and the experiment itself is rudimentary. They are almost childish and basic in style. However, it's the math associated with the figuring out the visual manifestation of the equations that's the key.

So as middle school as they appear, they're far far from it. I'd have to argue the "nothing here" statement. I found Shibasaki the best. I've seen all her work and idolize her. So i'll put that out there and move it to an aside. However, the role itself was entertaining. The character appeals to me because she's very humanistic and normal and the completely juxtapose of lead male. As she's supposed to be. She redefines the idea that there are some things that can't be explained and actually it's better when they're not.

That was the whole dynamic of their relationship and why it's so entertaining to watch in relation to the basic story put forth. The two characters involvement and understanding of a situation actually enriches the other. This is why towards the end of the drama, Shibasaki's character made a comment of "there's always a scientific explanation" and the lead character starts realizing the illogical may have some logic afterall.

Neither of them are out on DVD. You'll have to wait a few more months for that. If you really want to see the final of Hana Yori Dango with pretty poor subs and really bad filming since it's cam, I think you can find it on mysoju.com or crunchyroll. I'd rather wait for the DVD quality to come out.

On a last note, try not to be so obnoxious by posting in caps. Normal typing is better to get your point across politely.

Am so excited about seeing the Galileo film. Galileo was definately one of my favourite JDrama's in years! I loved every single minute of it, so am totally excited about the film.

I hope they make another series too. I loved it that much.

I totally agree with you on that. I do hope as well that they do a sequel. I'm not too sure if they will, but they definitely created a genre where they can. Like a quirky version of Mulder and Scully or more professional than Trick.

I know the film is ridiculously different from the show so if you love the show the way it is, be prepared that the film version is very very different. The film version is based more on the the line of the books than the show was....and they made the show extra quirky.

Yes, that's what I thought when watching the show. That it had the potential to be a long-running series if they wanted it to be, given the premise. Not that I expect it will be. That isn't how J-Drama's work mostly, but I'm just greedy. I really thought it was fantastic.

For those living in Hong Kong, TVB will be broadcasting the 0 special in two parts on 12/21 and 12/28 Cantonese dubbed. And the film will hit Hong Kong theaters on 12/24. How lucky! :O

I wonder when the movie will be coming out on DVD... I really, really want to see it. I enjoyed the drama series, though I kinda lost my interest for it by the end. But the movie has been reviewed pretty well even by people who had not seen the drama, and thus I'm assuming that it works well as a stand-alone movie. And Tsutsumi Shinichi is quite a great actor, and he apparently gives a great performance in this movie, so that's a definite plus.

The SP was aired after the series.
It is chronologically placed years before the series but everyone in Japan watched it afterwards.

It doesn't really matter when you watch SP 0. The story stands by itself. Some things I thought really weird.
The water or substance young galileo boiled and put ice over it. It seems really strange that the suction can hold 40kg without the lid coming off until the ice melted. Anyone know science that can vouch for that?

Yes, there's a low-res (but quite watchable) rmvb version w/ traditional Chinese hardsub available in the usual places. Also, according to YesAsia.com, the official R3 (HK) version will be out on 3/2 w/ English and Chinese subs (and will probably be a lot cheaper than the R2 version).

Wow, the HK version will be out before the JP version? Thanks for the news, I was waiting for that. I just did a search of YesAsia though but it only came up with the Japanese editions. I cannot find the Hong Kong edition. Do you know where it is?

Now they've changed the release date to 03/20, but the price is indeed much cheaper than that of the R2 version (50%). It's even cheaper in www.dddhouse.com (HK based) w/ shipping, and they are quite reliable (I've never lost a shipment from them - knock on wood...):

I watched the SP and the movie by SARS. The SP... like someone else mentioned it stood out on it's own and I was really looking forward to seeing Yukawa and Utsumi again but was a disappointed since the SP introduces how Yukawa-sensei gets into solving crimes bit. The SP did serve a purpose though as it also somewhat introduces a character in the movie Yogisha X no Kenshin.

I really enjoyed the movie it was really well written and acted out. And the theme song 'Saiai' meant a lot more after finishing the movie. : )

Are you sure about Yuriko replacing Kou in the new season? I checked drama wiki and both names are there. not to mention the teaser. I really like Yuriko but I really want Kou to be in the second season. It would be sad if she's been replaced.

Kou will be on episode 1 to give a sort of turn-over for Yuriko's character. I think she will still appear in some episodes but it's only a short appearance.
I read somewhere that Kou has already finished filming her scenes.

^At least one positive thing about this comeback. Saiai is one of my favourite songs. I also read that this drama will be shown worldwide, too. I think it is a bad decision to replace Kou with a younger actress. Her chemistry with Fukuyama is awesome and hard to duplicate. I just want Kou to act in another drama, though and not as the sidekick rookie. She is typecasted too often and too good for that. So maybe not reprising her role as a detective here is not as bad. Maybe they even offered and she declined for that reason.....

Who am I kidding, they wanted the younger girl. Meh.

I read somewhere that Kou wanted to focus on her music and will be touring so she didn't have time for Galileo 2. I don't know if it's legit information but it seems like it since she won't be appearing much. :cry:

I agree. I really like their chemistry. But, I like that they had Yuriko instead of some other actress as Kou's replacement. :whistling:

Interesting pilot episode in my opinion. Kishitani is a bit annoying but I'm glad Yuriko's playing her. Tbh, had it been another actress I'd probably be super annoyed. XD I'm gonna miss Utsumi a lot.

Also, first episode garnered a 22.6% rating. I think it's been a while since a Getsuku drama reached 20%.
As expected from Masha, I hope the ratings keep up.

to be honest, after ep1 I am really really sad that Kou is not there anymore and Yuriko has replaced her. I thought Yoriko might be good choice to replace Kou but all she did in ep 1 was to annoy me with her exaggerated acting. specially when she kept yelling "Shut up" all the time. didn't see any chemistry between her and Masahiro and I wonder if it gets better with next eps. I'll keep watching but I will be missing all the chemistry between Manabu x Kaoru.

one thing made me giggle while watching ep1 and it was when Manabu told Osawa character "if we abandoned latest science&technology right now &return to level of science in Edo era!" I am sure it was on purpose.
:lol

Glad I'm not the only one who find the new female lead annoying. :lol

I just watched the first episode, and overall I liked it. I don't know why, but I liked it more then the episodes of season 1. While I watched season 1 and didn't hate it, I wasn't very fond of the show. It was "okish", but not more. Season 2 somehow feels different (at least after the first episode) so I'm looking forward to the next one.

The case itself was nice, though I figured out what was going on when it happend and was sure when
they talked about the eyes for the first time.
I don't like the new female lead at the moment...her character is somehow annoying...but maybe her character will change throughout the serious under Galileos influence...at leas that is what I'm hoping for.

Nerd comment:
If someone said, that he/she has a piece of Germanium, I would be much more impressed and interested, than in a diamond. ;)

The series 1 and 2 are interesting, with fairly credible scientific explanations for each mystery.

The drama is entirely misnamed. It should be Newton, not Galileo. The main character's personality is the exact opposite of that of Galileo (outgoing womanizer, publicity hound), and much more like the personality of Newton. Much of the physics is Newtonian physics, and nothing so far is based on Galileo's limited physics.

Not much comments about the series. Is anybody enjoying it? Wondering if it's worth it to watch without Shibasaki Kou as the female lead. :unsure:

The new female lead was a little bit annoying to me in the first episode if I'm hones. BUT, after the second one I got used to her, and now I like her much more then the old one. I think her character is stronger and more interesting. Up to now, I like the second series more than the first one.

I agree. I was pretty annoyed by Kishitani in the first episode but I've gotten used to her already in episode 2. :lol:

I still miss Utsumi but Kishitani is doing okay, in my opinion. Still waiting for the subs on episode 3 but I'm enjoying the second season so far. :D

Usually I can't stand reboots, I didn't last 2 minutes in front of the new GTO (the original was so good) but in this case I'm loving it and I have to thank Yuriko Yoshitaka for playing such a good character.

I am great admirer of Kitamura. Hope that his role will be larger. He is a wonderful actor and has played many roles that star actors could not manage I think. Why isn't he a bigger sensation in Japan ? Strange.

I think Yuriko has brought something fresh in the second season. Kishitani was annoying at first but she really has grown on me. I loved the scene with the peaches on episode 3. :lol

Kitamura Kazuki needs to be in more things. :P
