1 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-25 15:21 ID:Heaven

Name any recommendations.

I've recently seen one that translates to "Wild Pig's Big Makeover". It's good ^^

2 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-25 16:14 ID:5DtC2zP5

Ichi rittoru no namida

and if you're feeling rather gay
Nobuta wo produce

Konna koi no hanashi

6 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-28 12:14 ID:Heaven

Someone was telling me about a drama about a train otaku. No, he wasn't getting confused with Densha Otoko. But he couldn't remember what the show's name was either. :-/

hana yori dango, nodame cantibile, honey and clover

>>7 i liked akihabara@deep... mainly because of ikuta toma

14 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-04-09 05:30 ID:IpkrgUoI

Konna koi no hanashi? That is seriously old school, but also one of my favorites. Over Time was good too.

15 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-04-10 00:06 ID:aAQJ1Lys

Same, but I might try and watch it again

16 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-04-13 22:19 ID:twovKo0G

Train otaku, i know it i think
Tokkyu Tanaka San-Go

17 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-04-22 19:26 ID:lkAWoe0r

Boku No Aruku Michi is pretty interesting, although boring at first.

Bengoshi no Kuzu and Taiyo no Uta are awesome. Also Nobuta wo PRODUCE. You also can't go wrong with Furin Kazan, a historical dorama that's been around for WHO KNOWS how long.

21 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-05-04 23:30 ID:3bzRx8zW

I liked Akihabara@Deep.

22 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-05-09 18:28 ID:ercmHeTN

Liar Game was the first drama I watched! Nobuta wo Produce, Jotei? Last Friends is airing at the moment, Zettai Kareshi (maybe) definitely Hana Yori Dango, also try Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, 1 Litre of Tears, Kurosagi. If you want something sad, Yuuki.

23 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-05-12 19:24 ID:23M759Aa

Last Christmas remains one of my favorites that I haven't seen a lot of people mention. Yada Akiko is amazing.

24 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-05-16 19:26 ID:23M759Aa

Am I the only one who noticied the jtv hardsubs are horrible. They have scenes in orange days where it is white on white making it impossible to know what's going on during the entire white scene.

OP, if you are still visiting this site, did you watch the jtv rips?

25 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-06-03 11:00 ID:0CI9UqZG

Is there anyone who love Kitamura Kazuki, who appeared in Yaoh or Bambino?

26 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-06-03 11:05 ID:0CI9UqZG

This is my favorite commercial film where Kitamura is on.

27 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-06-03 11:08 ID:0CI9UqZG


which Kitamura is on.

28 Name: Kikk0man : 2008-06-04 01:17 ID:0kSv3y4L

has anyone seen densha otoko? it's a great love story about an unsocial otaku who saves this beautiful girl from a drunkard on a train. densha otoko (train man), gets help from the dezins of a message board called 2channel. If you watch the movie, it all sums it up but the tv show is funny, interesting and just plain weird.

29 Name: myv's chick : 2008-06-05 23:45 ID:3sMedw5L

i've also watched nobuta wo prouce, akihabara@deep, densha otoko and last christmas- all are pretty good...

but the BEST shows i've seen are hana kimi, hana yori dango, and nodame cantibile- these are like my favorite shows ever!

you guys and gal must see My Boss My Hero
its the story of a yakuza that must go to high school in order to succeed to be the clan leader.
(the actor is the singer of the band Tokio)

31 Name: 773 : 2008-07-06 13:33 ID:D6RBvAjC

zettaikareshi is also good

32 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-07-12 13:32 ID:TQ7dVDaj

Galileo is also good.

GOKUSEN and I have a shitty memory...

38 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-07-27 12:26 ID:TQ7dVDaj

>>36 Yeah to be honest I have no idea. I might have sympathised with Hanagata or something. I only remember it leaving a huge impression on me but with no clear idea of why it was so good.

39 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-08-03 01:18 ID:XZLF81As

Gokusen was OK after the first season, but number two was EXACTLY the same, and I doubt season 3 to be any better.

The second season actually got so formulaic that I couldn't remember which episode I was on, and skipping through some didn't help as they all were about the exact same things.

40 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-08-04 13:47 ID:TQ7dVDaj

Season 3 is very much the same. Every episode is some kid getting in some shit, and then her running to some random alley and/or warehouse and then the same soundtrack playing for the same things in every single episode.

^^ absolutely! I reckon it's less about the gripping storyline than about tons of cute boys for the ladies ^^ altho, loads of stuff that yankumi said got me good grades in my teaching qual... hehe

btw the movie apparently brings some of the old cast back...

44 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-09-22 22:12 ID:5giNEyvP

yeah, I agree come to think of it, some of the main cast were mainly Johnny's ent. boys.
cant wait for bloody monday too!

46 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-09-29 21:07 ID:UH/Nv9ZM

ryuusei no kizuna is starting in a few weeks as well, isn't it? including Kazunari Ninomiya ^^ reason enough to at least take a peak ^^

47 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-09-30 12:15 ID:Heaven

Haha ~~~ yeh i liked this drama!! It was intense but it really was the only good drama on the season in my opinion.

everyone must watch Ichi Rittoru no Namida (1 Liltre of Tears)

50 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-10-25 13:38 ID:HiVCWGzu

bloody monday is really good

51 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-10-26 13:22 ID:Heaven

I loved Maou too.

52 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-10-27 16:19 ID:lkAWoe0r

>it really was the only good drama on the season in my opinion

Blasphemy!!! I think Seigi no Mikata was much better than Maou. Some of the moments in the series were just pure gold, although the girl playing the imouto tended to overact. I really recommend Seigi no Mikata to everyone who hasn't seen it.

Anyone watched tetsudou musume yet?

55 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-10-30 21:58 ID:5yNJFp+p

bloody monday ~ it's quite thrilling and captivating, almost a little frightening... but hard to look away, imo. miura haruma does an excellent job on this.

56 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-11-01 16:24 ID:G/m/ym/o

Hmm... Hana Yori Dango + Hana Yori Dango Returns is my favorite <3

i just finished watching zettai kareshi and it was very touching! i couldn't help but cry at the end.

59 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-11-29 00:21 ID:ETmq5ofM

…I liked Flowers for Algernon (Algernon ni hanataba wo).

60 Name: Anonymous : 2008-11-30 17:28 ID:uSWEtW5Y

Last Friend. It's really nice.

61 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-01-07 13:24 ID:1O53cb8P

I've really enjoyed watching 3-B-gumi Kinpachi Sensei. Perhaps one of the best school dramas ever written. Although high-quality episodes are somewhat difficult to find on the internet. Series 6 was probably the best series, featuring Aya Ueto as Nao. :)

62 Name: otakuisback : 2009-01-07 16:04 ID:+3x+n2G8

well i think my best dorama is Densha Otoko and My Boss My Hero
Densha Otoko for the heartwarming story
My Boss My hero for "The PUDDING CRISIS" LOL

63 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-01-08 01:20 ID:adW63v/C


Haha! My Boss My Hero was such a funny drama. It provided a really interesting twist to an otherwise outdated genre.

64 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-01-14 09:19 ID:SbBWSShH

The recently aired Maou was a decent drama. I wasn't a big fan of any of last seasons dramas, but Ryuusei no Kizuna wasn't bad. Innocent Love was alright if you like Asano Taeko's style of angst, but I preferred Last Friends.
