[Discussion] Hyoryu Net Cafe

I didn't see a thread for this in the index, so I thought I'd make one. Is anyone else interested in this upcoming spring drama?


Hyoryu Net Cafe, or Drifting Net Cafe, is based on a (rather new) manga by Oshimi Shuzo. It stars Ito Atsushi, Asami Reina, Takahashi Mai, among others. Tokyograph description says:


<i>The story revolves around salaryman Toki Koichi, who leads a trouble-free but unexciting life. One day he stops by an internet cafe, where he runs into his first love whom he never forgot. A sudden electrical failure traps him and the other customers in the cafe, which has become a strange universe of its own.</i>

It reminds me a bit of <i>Long Love Letter</i> description wise, but I'm thinking it will be different. And, while I love LLL, I'm hoping this show isn't just some clone with adults inside of high schoolers and their teachers.

It depends on what the 'strange universe' means^^ In any case, I'll check the first episode! But I really don't know what to expect from this drama.

Same here. I'll be checking out the first episode. I wish there was more info on it, because it sounds like it might be interesting.

This drama looks more and more interesting. It's a shame dramawiki doesn't have more info and that the CMs are so short. I think I'll be watching the first episode next week.

I agree. I'm looking forward to this show and it is a shame no one has picked it up

First episode is pretty interesting. I like the directing of this drama. I like Asami Reina here^^ Cute. Reaaaally dislike that first love... so weird-looking and weird-attitude XD

I wonder where is this story heading? Will it be a science fiction kind? Too bad they didn't show that strange universe yet, in 1st ep. So I'm really looking forward to Ep2, indeed.

I'd like to know how similar this one will be with Tokiwa Takako and Kubozuka Yosuke's Long Love Letter^^

I see we were all reminded of LLL while watching this XD That actually is kind of a turn off for me, though, as you said, it'll -hopefully- end up being totally different.

That KIKI person (aka first love) acts in a really strange way. I'm trying to convince myself she's like that 'cause she's supposed to be a strange person, rather than opt for she's just a bad actress XD Couldn't find any info on her (I didn't look much though ^_^;;)

So hmm, this first ep didn't much to pull me in, but I'll still give the second ep a go ^__^

I'm a sucker for this kind of material. LLL was one of my faves
I liked the first episode, I was worried that it will be too like LLL, but it looks like a different perspective. So I'm definitely gonna follow this series!

Ep2 still makes me want to watch Ep3. I like that young otaku guy who seem to know alot. Their theory guesses in what is actually happening were pretty interesting.

Anyone has read the manga? Can you pls tell me the spoiler on what's actually happening? Where are they? And why? XD hehe... I just can't wait to know, and doesn't want to be disappointed later^^

I feel like Kaho, the first love, has got something to do with this. She seem suspicious.

Hmm the script in the second episode kind of disappointed me. I mean, the whole, "OMG OMG what on earth is happening!" was not handled well, imo.
What I found amusing was that, first the girl was all freaked out and bugging her BF for an explanation, then Toki took on the same role with Kaho XD Toki seemed to be on the "spineless wimp" category there, but I like the bits in which he speaks his opinion.

Is it weird that it took a teenager to come up with that second theory? Sure neither makes much sense, but if you wanna choose the one that makes less nonsense, then... ^_^;;
The lady that came up with the first theory kinda freaks me out, but I liked her ^_^

The kid seems interesting, too. His acting wasn't bad ^_^ I think That kid and the waitress girl are the ones that I find most convincing.

I still don't like KIKI XD But she was awesome...
...how she tricked Toki into going into the forest XD


Frankly, this drama isn't doing much for me now. But strange enough, it's only one I\ve managed to watch till now XD Maybe 'cause each ep is so short ^_^;;

I just released episode one on Dramacrazy as well as d-addicts (pending approval atm), episode 3 was like.. a filler so odd so early on. Hopefully it'll get more story in ep 4. Expect episode 2 to be released tomorrow.

The plot reminds me of Drifting Classroom an old classic manga that had an entire school suddenly dissappear with students and teachers in it to some other dimension where it had monsters/giant bugs? which would kill/eat some of the students/teachers heck in the manga some of the teachers went insane as well. Wouldn't be surprise if this series/manga was inspired by that manga.

Anyways so far I'm liking this series maybe it's because this series reminds me the tone of Tales from the Darkside series, so the low budget and somewhat over the top acting fits well with me since that's what Tales from the Darkside had.

Here's the intro for Tales from the Darkside:

owhhhh..this drama is kinda promising,have watched two episodes so far waiting for dc team to sub them..this weekend. but for those who dont believe in a paralel universe maybe this is not THE drama for you. haha. of course there are some weird characters stuck with the main actors. i believe this has something to do with the past,the storyline i mean.cant wait for the next instalment

They were in Toki's mind, she killed herself and bam the went to a new place. Toki sees his wife and Kato-san, and bam it zooms out and they're in another forest. It's a bad wtf ending the worst type imo.

Are there some news about subs? "mavi" subbed 8 episodes so far.
2 are on d-addicts and all of the first 8 are on dramacrazy.
so the last 3 are still missing right? would be great if "mavi" would finish this project.

Have just been watching Hyoryu Net Cafe up to episode 9 without realizing that there are two more eps.
Has anyone subbed episode 10 and 11 yet? Can't find any subs and am dying to find out how it'll end. :(

...so far not. I guess mavi dropped it. For the past fith months there is no update anymore, but perhaps it will be finished someday^^
