, I was interested in Hotshot. Is that with Show Luo? If so, how was it? I'm a fan of his from Corner with Love and am curious about watching more shows of his (on that note, has anyone seen T-drama Working Girl?)
Hikari no Clover
Hotshot=Show Luo + Jerry Yan
1 of my friends is watching it and keep telling me that the show is quite exaggerated(they can fly etc.)
but overall is not bad
Hello, I've been getting into drama myself, though I find a lot are a bit hit and miss, it's unfortunate but there doesn't seem to be nearly as big an english speaking fanbase for it as Anime, so it's difficult to find the names of good series. It would be nice if there was some kind of website like MyAnimeList, but alas I have been mostly unsuccessful in finding any, though there may be in other languages that I am not aware of.
I've watched and enjoyed Hero, GTO (though I prefer the Manga and Anime) and am sorta getting into Nobuta wo Produce.
Well, you can try Hana Yori Dango afterwards donguigleone..if not try Liar game ^_^ their both J-dramas.
Oh and Geta, I saw the torrent for the Maison Ikkoku special 2008, have you seen it yet? Just curious if it takes place after the first movie or so.
Thanks for the reply
^_^ Flying huh? Well, I do like watching martial art movies, and those can get pretty crazy ridiculous
Talking about Nobuta wo Produce, I still haven't gotten around to that, I'm pretty curious about it. Right now I'm watching 'Orange Days', and so far I find it very enjoyable.
: There is a big, English speaking fanbase. We're just on the wrong forum, lol. (try d-addicts, or jdorama). >_>;;
However, understandably so, compared to anime, asian dramas are like tiny caterpillars in a nest of birds.
Nobuta wo Produce
was decent. Despite not really liking Yamapi's cardboard acting in any drama, he did pretty well as Akira. Kame's Shuji was...his usual acting. There are a lot of funny moments, some really touching moments that made me tear up, though I don't believe it is on the same level as
. I'm not really into those sorts of idol star dramas (Hana-kimi for example) so it may just be a matter of taste. My sister really liked Nobuta, so I think you should definitely give it a try if you've got the time.
Yeah I've seen those 2 sights, Jdorama has a decent top 50 list (though it's sample size is a bit too small, not it's fault of course), though it only pertains (obviously) to Jdorama.
I've seen D-addicts, aside from forum and torrent links is there anything else there?
There really isn't much else to D-ADDICTS, though on second thought, aside from the forum and torrent links, what else is there to asuki?
True, though I suppose I enjoy reading forum posts about anime more than drama. I guess most information that you could want about anime is pretty easily found, between Encyclopeadias like ANN, MyAnimeList, and even Wikipedia, all the Blogs, and forums like Animesuki itelf, it's pretty easy to find info, and suss out shows on a systematic basis. In fact I'd be hesitant to say that there's any Foreign Language media with as good a coverage, aside from perhaps some of the more widely recognised movies. For instance I find it way more difficult to find good french language films as easily, the internet fandom just isn't there. Hopefully these things may change in the future.
Anyway, are there any good sites in Chinese, Korean or Japanese on Drama? I suppose I could pipe it through babelfish or something. Searching for them on google is hard if you don't know the language.
Try Using This Site
*prod* to both here and the j/k/c thread
Any new and upcoming series that people are looking forward to?
Summer 2008 wasn't really a good season for Jdorama. I dropped every single show. Hopefully Autumn will fare better.
I'm curious about
Ryusei no Kizuna
, with Ninomiya Kazunari, Nishikido Ryo, and Toda Erika. I don't like jpop idol dramas (like I've said before), but the premise is so interesting, I'll have to give it a try. The premise is about three siblings whose parents were murdered. The three siblings vow to avenge their parents' death, but after the brothers (Nino and Ryo) find the murderers, things go awry.
After seeing Toda Erika in
and her acting in
(which I prefer over Aragaki Yui's stale performance), I am looking forward to her in the new drama. She has really improved. Nishikido's defining role in Last Friend has made me think twice about mocking his skills (though he still has room for improvement), and Nino - well - he's Nino.
I've never seen him in this type of role before, so I'm hoping to be surprised.
Also I am kind of curious about the new line up of dramas: ROOM OF KING, with Anne Suzuki and Mizushima Hiro; the continuation of
with Aoi Miyazaki; SCANDAL with Suzuki Kyoka and Hasegawa Kyoko.
Glad to see an active drama group on AS.
I'm a longterm fan who's been watching Asian live action series for nearly all my life and J-drama for 15+ years.
@Nervous Venus: I agree. This summer season had so much potential, but none of the shows have turned out to be that gripping for me. It was rather disappointing.
The upcoming autumn season seems to be filled with suspense/mystery shows. Other than the intriguing
Ryusei no Kizuna
, which I plan to watch, are there a couple more that might be worth trying:
Team Batista no Eiko
- dark medical/crime drama. Can't wait for Ito Atsushi as the main character. I wonder how well this series will do considering the movie adaptation featuring Abe Hiroshi and Takeuchi Yuko was pretty popular.
- genius hacker vs Russian terrorist organisation! It seems like Kichise Michiko is everywhere these days, and that's a good thing.
I'm hoping that
's footsteps nicely, and Sasaki Kuranosuke working in a host club in
is going to be pretty fun to watch.
Hikari no Clover
Team Batista no Eiko
is it the same operation they did in Team Medical Dragon?
Currently watching Seigi no Mikata ( its almost finish if not finished now).
Pretty fun to watch..
15-year-old Yoko, a young girl who is constantly tormented by her self-centered and devilish older sister Makiko, who works for a government office after having graduated from a famous university. But despite her ill nature, Makiko's actions tend to somehow make things better for those around her, causing others to praise her as an "ally of justice."
@Hikari no Clover: Oh, I can't say because I haven't watched Team Medical Dragon. Is it a famous operation?
, Yamada Yu (who plays the older sister) has improved since her start in Kabachitare! but she doesn't really seem cut out for acting as she is for modeling. She fits into the same category as Shinohara Ryoko, who is really not so great, but who directors seem to favor as a lead actress...for reasons that are beyond me.
Give me another Fukatsu Eri (preferably younger, but just as talented) and I shall be happy.
I was very disappointed to find that the New York Public Library system has a number of Chinese dramas in their entirety (they seem to average 5-6 DVDs per series), but none of them have English subtitles. Worse yet, I couldn't even find softsubs on D-Addicts for them. How frustrating.
Ledgem, which shows are of interest? I might be able to help.
