Can't say I'm looking forward to it... I would watch it because I'm interested in more of Matsuzaka Tori but.... the story and plot sounds eh and typical. I think I might have a similar attitude toward this like Otomen (I was only able to watch 1 episode and had to drop it.... It exaggerated too much about what girls and guys are suppose to like and all that crap)

It's not a heavily promoted and "hyped up" drama but I am hoping and thinking it is going to be similar to Hana Kimi? :unsure:

If the guys bully her and give her a hard time then that would help. It would be nice if there is a love triangle w/love-hate tension to make it more interesting.

Link to the drama's new CM http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/CDUScnJytJg/

I agree with Minah that the storyline does not sound too appealing. I have to say though, Emi Takei hits the jack pot with all the guys she is filming with. There are barely any girls in the drama.

From watching the trailer, I think it's going to be like BBF kdrama or HYD jdrama. I am really excited about watching it now.

@YamapiRocks27, it hasn't been picked up by a fansub group as of yet. Hoping it will be selected soon!

Here are the trailers for Asuko March! I can't wait to see it either.

Ok i found these two very cute photos, but i dont know if they are considered spoilers, because their is interaction betwen the Two Leads, theis sceane could be in episode one, they were very easy to find so , i think they are spoilers

i'll put the first photo in but the second as a possiable spoiler.

Thanks for posting the pics but as a courtesy to those who don't watch trailers, you should put the screen caps and trailer pics in spoiler tags because there are lots of people who don't watch trailers at all. They may turn away before giving the drama a chance. Just sayin :)

I noticed that a fansub group picked up German subs but no English sub group yet. I am going to send requests to a few groups shortly.

Vulcan 300 Fansubs will be doing English soft subs for this series. We just announced it in the subtitle forum.

We're looking for volunteers for editing and QC. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Hitomi posted on jdorama.com the interview and it appears that Emi-chan didn't like having to do the interview in overalls. :lol She wanted to dress up for the press conference. I thought that was so cute. Glad to hear Vulcan 300 Fansubs is taking this drama! :mrgreen:

I thought you might understand a little. :roll So how did you understand the YT video? I can read facial expressions, body language and events but that's about it. I'm glad that the drama is being subbed too. It was getting down to the wire :sweat:

LOL Sorry for the misunderstanding. I found the video funny because Emi Takei's facial expressions were hilarious when one of the guy said I love you to her.

I feel like I am really missing out! I don't think I can wait any longer for full eng subs. Viki has it 57% complete so I will go ahead and watch it there in a few minutes. :salut:

Nao and Mokoto are so cute as a couple. Seems like they already have more chemistry than Yujin and Nao but it's still early so.... BTW, Mokoto's 3 younger siblings are so adorable :D

From what I have read, it takes alot of work to sub just one episode. Depends on the amount of help you have too. Viki has teams and they work directly with production companies so they have more "manpower" to get subs out faster. At least that is what is implied from reading their information.

I can't download files so that is the only reason why I have to see hardsubs online. :( But there is Good news, Viki has episode 2 92% subbed already! :cheers: Time to go watch

I don't mind watching the commercials if only the video would return afterward. The notice saying the commercial had 2 seconds left kept hanging on both ep 1 and 2. And I am running the Viki plugin thingie!! Very frustrating. I have to admit it takes a bit of concentration to tune out those comments at the top. Why that's a "feature" I have no idea. Another frustration is a higher quality raw is usually available right here on torrent, but you can't get the soft subs to go with it!! Aigh!!! It's much more fun to watch on HDTV rather than streaming.

I noticed the commercials on ep. 1 but I literally just finished ep. 2 and no commercials at all. Maybe they disabled them after noticing problems like you stated I'm thinking? There is an ad (like the one on YT) that stays at the bottom center of the screen but the video plays straight through for me. I don't run the Viki plug-in because you don't need to with the new players. That was for the old Viki players.

Vulcan 300 is subbing the HD raws but it will take some time. I follow their progress here http://fansub.d-addicts.com/Vulcan_300_Fansubs.

I agree about the HDTV quality, I wish Viki had an HD feature like YT. Maybe we could suggest it to them here http://www.viki.com/channels/4-viikii-help.

Yokoyama is a true hottie! Very nice to look at :D. I still think Tamaki is nice looking too. Wow this drama is getting better and better.
OMG the part about Yoshino having bad cramps... I totally predicted that she was going to faint! I knew it because she was in too much pain and was working so hard. It was so cute when Yokoyama picked her up in the hallway. So sweet! They make a good couple :lol. But it's interesting how both male leads are from broken homes and it looks like Yoshino (Emi-chan) is too. There is no filthy rich lead in this drama so far.
I can't wait for next epi and I am a new fan of Tori too! I haven't watched GOLD yet but I'm planning to start it this weekend.

I just got to watch the 2nd ep on MySoju. Had commercials but at least stuff seemed to work for the most part. I probably missed some small bits where it would hang and I had to go to the next segment to keep watching.

I'm aware of the status link Out of curiosity I use a Bookmarklet I call "Mod" that has this js: "javascript:alert(document.lastModified)" Many sites will block it but not all. The Asuko March sub status page was last updated April 25 so I've stopped going there.

:)

The subs always seem to be the fly in the ointment. I've become semi-expert at extracting subs from just about every video type and converting to other formats as well as burning them in with AviSynth scripts!!! All that work just to follow what's going on!!

But it gives me something to do. :)

I don't have any stream capture software. Also I wouldn't take it from a site without permission. What I mean by extracting and changing format is stuff like PGS subs in BluRay I can get them to .srt sometimes or idx/sub. If I knew some magic way of getting subs I wouldn't be endlessly hunting for the English Subs to series. Wish I could help. Sorry.

I enjoyed the first episode. Watched it raw though. But it wasn't really too hard to understand what's going on. I found it pretty funny that Kaku Kento practically plays a less comedic Nippori here. Haha! Isn't that other girl student the same girl from Taisetsu na Koto....? Well, there seems to be a bit of recycling going on here. And I like Nao more with Makoto than with the Host Guy. Though she'll probably end up falling for him - the way they promote it makes me think so.

I've watched the first and second episode of Asuko March - I like it. It's definitely no highlight, but still pretty entertaining.
And I like both male leads - I guess she's going to end up with the night club guy.

Recently I've seen mostly Taiwanese and Korean dramas and I almost concluded that Asian cities are more colourful and girls have clear skin and perfectly- done hairstyles - but Asuko March congratulations, it also appears possible to have a drama with actors who are not breathing (and retouched) cardboard figures.

Yes, Takei Emi looks very natural. After watching episode 2 I think Nao also has chemistry with Aruto...I found that scene in class where they
had to do pair work really cute. And when the others began to tease how quickly Makoto let go of Naos hand...aww, awkward teen romance is a guilty pleasure. haha...
I like the premise of the show. A technical school and how the girl - reluctant at first - slowly learns to appreciate the work that is done there and begins to realize herself that it's not all bad there and maybe a future career. I'm all for women in "typical" guy jobs. And I like the teachers. hehe...

Isn't the troublemaker the same promiscuousness girl from Taisetsu na Koto? She reminds me of Ueto Aya. :crazy:

No you are not alone! I want her to end up with Mokoto. Tori's character
is pretty sad too. Seems like both male leads have a hard life. I am rooting for Mokoto because he has hard time especially raising his siblings and he likes Nao just not sure how to express himself because he is inexperienced. Tori's character has girls liking him alot. Image

Nah, ... it' quite strange with this drama - normally I prefer one of the male leads, but this time they both seem to suit her very well. :thumleft:

Why is it airing only once a week? It feels like two weeks since I saw the last episode...

I just finished watching the first two episodes and I am also rooting for Kaku Kento!! However, I think the host guy would be a good contender too. From the episode 3 preview, it seems like the drama is favoring him :( I also rarely like the other guy. I hope episode 3 will be shown today!

Not sure why ep 3 didn't air last Sunday but I hope that they will broadcast both ep 3 and 4 this week. It's really taking too long!

Episode 3 aired yesterday its out on torrent episode is out of the 29th i think it is. They seem to do be airing every 2 weeks, which drives me mad.. cause each episode so far is forcous on one person but drives to put little parts of the Main male Aruto in it and Kento's

sorry as in episode 3 aired yesterday and they are airing episode 4 on the 29th i think it is, again missing one week and having the broadcast every 2 weeks. The episodes seem to focus one the one guy and then have little clips of the main male lead and the second male lead in parts. Waiting 2 weeks is a killer haha x sorry for the confusion .

NOOOO! Why! I think this drama is really good, can't understand why it has to be aired every two weeks. It should be aired two times a week. Lets protest the network! Now who is with me! :salut:

but since ep 1 aired on April 24 and ep 2 aired on May 1, I don't think this program is scheduled to be aired once in 2 weeks..

It is said on May 8 they aired Movie Special, also May 22, they are going to air Pirates of Caribbean instead..

Let's hope no more movie special until Asuko finished..

This is NOT good news :O . This could really hurt the drama. Wait, didn't the producers have the station's broadcasting schedule in advance? :cussing: How could this happen? KICK ROCKS! :cussing: :x

Can someone please help make sense of this nonsense :alcoholic:

I feel the same way about Tori x , i dont get it if its just movie specials then that isnt fair one bit, once yes.. but it think unless its the making movie special of POTC 4 then fair enough but number one.... its out on Dvd soo not fair.. i have to wait 2 weeks to watch and put myself off from vidding my new couple.... ahh frustrating, exspecialy when Aruto dosnt get alot of screentime even though he is Lead male...and waiting 2 weeks i don't think he will have alot again ..

Fans of whoever saw my First Asuko March ArutoxNao vid here's my second and yes it does contain Episode 3 Clips .. one of my favourite english songs.. ( i dont think its as good as my first one but i am still proud of it, just need more clips to mess about with haha

ArutoxNao I Need You Now ( Contains clips up to the lateast episode )

Tori did say every 2 weeks on his blog but that migh thave just been for them two episoes we will have to wait and see and the page you linked to his like a fun page as their diaries, you cant use a translator because i think the wriiting is a photo .

This is what Anna replied on my Viki page-

annasui47 Today 2:31pm

Hi, Luvey :D
Now, Viki had to block all Japanese channels (It's not only 'Asuko March') including Vscoop Japan due to copyright issue. Only a QC who can access it.
It's so sad that i'm not a QC, so I can't see the channel like you. Hope this situation will go back to normal as soon as possible.

Hey guys! Finally found the actual drama thread ^^ I LOVE THIS SHOW! And I've watched a lot of dramas. This show has all the eye candy, drama, and comedy one could want.

And this is the first time I've actually liked the entire main guy cast (minus a couple). With me being a guy it's hard to actually like boys but I've grown fond of the 2 main characters just because they help out Emi so much :)

I actually like Aruto & Nao the best. Just because Aruto seems like a real genuine guy and he has a pretty rough life after school. I'm sure later in the drama he'll start to like Nao but I positive Nao is gonna like the other guy. Either way, they're all pretty awesome dudes! Gah I just hate waiting 2 weeks for another ep. So basically we've "missed" 2 eps :( lame. You know, I was saving ep3 for a special occasion because I knew it'd be a long time before I saw another ep.. so i just finished it today lol
