Hee... its a classic and its my favourite.

Golden Bowl is not bad, Beauty and the Beast starring Matsushima Nanako and Fukuyama Masaharu is very good too.

Average length of jap dorama is about 11-12 episodes, but they may have a number of seasons though.

Same here, the spirit from the series was totally lost in that movie.

Beautiful Life was a good one. I liked To Heart too.. And for non-japanese dorama suggestions, I'd suggest Bright Girl's Success story. It's a korean drama and it's really quite charming and funny.

Beautiful Life made me depressed for a week. I wish I were exaggerating.

I'm watching Long Vacation and Bright Girl right now. J-TV does both of them. Both are good. But yeah I get kind of a silly feeling when someone walks in on me watching "dorama". Most of the time I scramble to pause it and try to look like I was just surfing the net, but I think some of the people in my house are suspecting I'm really into Asian porn.

The GTO movie sucked compared to the series not to mention long ass boring. I saw 1 eps of Long Vacation and really didn't like it. If I feel like I'm forcing myself to finish the eps then its no good. I kinda like Beautiful Life and Good Luck starring that guy but Long Vacation was not in par w/ them. For a classic, I'll say Summer Snow is the best!

I watched the GTO movie yesterday, and yeah.. It wasn't that good. X_X I stopped right in the middle..

Also, I started watching Summer Snow. It's.. really good. I'm so surprised, because we all know that drama tv shows really suck here. But the story is really touching..
And by the way.. Is it my imagination, or is the actor in summer snow the same actor that plays the guy who gets picked on at first in GTO? ^^;;

I wanted to see Long Vacation, but there's no seeds

Yes, the younger brother who is mostly deaf, Jun, is the guy that always got picked on in the begining of GTO live. Summer Snow was the first Japanese live action I saw, and apparently it's really well known in the english dorama watching forums, and I deffinately can see why, it was great. I won't give anything away, but imho the ending was REALLY well done.

Sailor Moon live parody subs are funny, but I really love the commericals, as they did parody subs of those too! I wish there were more than 3 parody... I'm actually still watching it... not sure why, it's pretty lame, but that makes it funny, cause I laugh at how pathetic it is. It for one reminds me that not every fansubed series is great, so I will enjoy the others more... :^P

Your under arrest live is alright, not any real plot, 2 romances that kinda form a plot, but not really. It's entertaining to see occationally.

Sad to say, Japanese dorama is actually on the decline now. Due to the Korean wave that hit the whole of Asia, Jap dramas are being replaced by Korean ones on TV. Newer shows may be good, but not exactly classic. We constantly see dramas with a particular ocupation as the background setting, although its nice to have insights into them, its shows that they are running out of creativity.

The lead stars in the early and mid-nighties are all above 30 already, but we have yet to see any young stars make any breakthroughs. Most of the new-blood looks too kiddy or they just can't act. Past hopefuls like Ryoko Hirosue, Kyoko Fukada, Hideaki Takizawa never ever achieve the popularity of Takuya Kimura and Matsushima Nanako. Even then, dramas starring the A-list stars don't gather high viewership ratings like they used to.

I still enjoy Jap drama though, maybe I am just old-school. Hope they pick up soon.

At first, I wasn't so sure about this show. I mean, I was so used to the anime version of Onizuka. The first and second episode didn't really help it any. But after the third episode, I began to become ingrossed in the show. It just sort of grows on you.

A nice tidbit of info.

Tenkoy: I know what you mean. ^^;; That sort of deceived me as well.. But I haven't read a lot of the manga. I just read the first issue.

And to people who were commenting about Sailor Moon live action.. In the begining, I thought it sucked. But as I watch it more, I think it's a really good live action now.. They really payed attention to small details, like the way the characters dress and other things like that. I like how when they're in the secret place, each Sailor Senshi has a drink of their own color. It's so cute ... The actors are getting better too.. In my opinion. ^^

Exclamation Is it coming more episodes?

I would really like if it would come more GTO Live episodes... I'm kinda sad because there isnt more than 12 episodes, the special and the movie!
Anyone know about a GTO Live internett site or something?
GTO Live Action is really funny...

I really hope there is coming more episodes or movies!

The order you should watch is the drama serial, followed by the special then the movie.
