*cough* One good example is this one Princess Princess. There is even an anime version of this one
Princess Princess drama is the most low-budget Jdrama I've ever seen. I got goosebumps watching that, even if I like BL. It's insanely cheesy and gay but I guess it was kinda hillarious in that sense too. I don't think anyone who didn't like the Prince of Tennis musical would find this any amusing though.

I actually liked the earlier parts of CHANGE more than the later parts. Abe Hiroshi was good, was hoping he would win the supporting actor award.

I think the casting of Rika is superior in the Taiwanese ver, while the casting of the uncle/teacher dude is superior in the Japanese version...but that's just all going on how they resemble the anime characters in term of looks.

*sniff, sniff*

I finally finished Sexy Voice and Robo, after approximately like half a month's worth of slowly watching and this final day's three-episode marathon.

Spoiler for ending, and other trivia:


Oh, and my thanks to Nervous Venus for recommending this to me. I can't say enough how grateful I am that you let me know my favorite short manga (which might continue someday) has such a good series on the side.

Edit: Well, I think I'm clear-headed enough now in a sense, a night's sleep ought to do it for everything, though I'm still...*sniff*

Spoiler for opinions, comparison with manga, and other trivialities:

I guess it's not a good comparison to make since Nodame is more on comedy and Hachikuro is more sentimental. Of course, nothing beats the anime but I'm now at episode 5 of the drama and it's definitely heaps better than the movie version, except for Hagu perhaps. I prefer Aoi Yuu. And, I'm beginning to see a Takashi Sorimachi and Shibasaki Kou double here. That Narimiya Hiroki dude and Harada Natsuki resemble them at some angles.

Oh! My Girl!! - Its a very cute story about a child actress suddenly has to live with her mother's brother. It is still ongoing and currently only has 2 subs.

I thought that this would be a "meh" drama but its actually pretty good. It doesn't focus on the romance (as of epi 2). It focuses more on the family part. How a young guy suddenly has to live with her famous niece. It is very heart warming(mostly near the end) Did I mention the dog is pretty cute? The niece is pretty tamed compared to what I have had imagined of a spoiled superstar suddenly had to live in a poor mans home.

P.S: I know some DDL links for this drama pm me if needed.

*phoenix down*

Aherm, bringing this thread back from the dead! Seems like ever since AnimeSuki brought in groups, discussion has moved more there than here at the thread ^_^

Currently watching Meteor Garden II, a continuation of the first series (all an adaptation of the well-known Hana Yori Dango story). I'm pretty much only watching it since I'm a die-hard HYD fan, but surprisingly enough, I'm enjoying it. It's strange how it deviates SO MUCH from the manga, yet the storyline is interesting enough to hold my attention.

I'm also thinking of starting Ruri no Shima:
Quote:

* Title: 瑠璃の島
* Title (romaji): Ruri no Shima
* Also known as: Ruri's Island
* Genre: Human drama
* Broadcast network: NTV

* Episodes: 10
* Viewership rating: 12.64
* Broadcast period: 2005-Apr-16 to 2005-Jun-18
* Air time: Saturday 21:00
* Theme song: Koko ni Shika Sakanai Hana by Kobukuro

Synopsis

On Hatomi, a small island in Okinawa state part of Japan's southern sea frontier, the social environment is suffering. With the last student of the elementary school leaving the place, the closing of the school is a virtual given. Mr. Nakama (Ogata Ken), decides to do something about it - and heads for Tokyo to recruit his grandson. Rebuffed by his daughter, however, he decides to adopt another child. He finds Ruri (Narumi Riko), a mature girl of 11 who distrusts people due to the fact that her mother (Nishida Naomi) doesn't care much about her, but after seeing Mr. Nakama's true intentions, allows him to take her to the island. Unfortunately, the local teacher, Ms. Sanae (Konishi Manami), who was banking on the school's closing to be able to go somewhere else, is resentful of Ruri and makes light of her city fashion (including permed hair, fake curls, and miniskirts), which leads to a big showdown between her and Ruri - and the people who were enthusiastic about her suddenly begin to have their doubts, and only Mr. Nakama and his wife Megumi (Baisho Mitsuko) take Ruri's side strongly. Following into the island is Mr. Kawashima (Takenouchi Yutaka), a mysterious man who saves Ruri from drowning following the fight - and who becomes her conscience and friend in her daily life in the island. But is Kawashima what he seems? Or did he come to the island to run away from Tokyo - and possibly a crime he may have been involved in there? Katsumura and Nishiyama play a local married couple of neighbors, Kashu and Igawa a local unmarried couple of neighbors, all of them willing to help Ruri in their own way. --Surge79uwf

Cast

* Narumi Riko as Fujisawa Ruri
* Takenouchi Yutaka as Kawashima Tatsuya/Takahara Makoto
* Ogata Ken as Nakama Yuzo
* Baisho Mitsuko as Nakama Megumi
@chaos-chan - I haven't watched the HYD movie yet! I'm patiently waiting for SARS to release their subbed version. I tried watching the video you sent me, but the quality really annoyed me >.< I'm too picky!

Something I do think is interesting: has anyone been to DramaSummaries.com? It seems like a fairly new site. You can catalog your dramas, much like MyAnimeList, by watching, completed, plan-to-watch, dropped, and on-hold. There are a good amount of series missing, but you also have the option of submitting dramas that should be added to the database.

Only just finished Zettai Kareshi. Loved the show but I sort of hated the ending, I was cheering for the other guy . Never read the manga so can't say if it's the same there
Liked the comedy romance mix throughout almost the entire series. Acting was great although Night did get a bit annoying at times, they should've let him be a bit more 'human' after the initial episodes.
Spoiler for Don't read if you don't wanna know how the drama ends !:


All in all a very enjoyable Jdrama

Vampire Host


Saw First 2 episodes of Vampire Hosts lot better than I had expected. Actually enjoyed the opulence when it comes to blood . I kinda imagined it to be

Shojoish and most of the male characters appearing and acting like ' juni juni '. Thankfully that wasn't the case . The theme is Gothic which was nice also the club design was better than I had expected . Special effects too are nicely done for a TV show . The acting leaves a lot to be desired, there is a constant chase of hamming diarrhea.

If you hate the run of the mill shows,over the top shows where over emphasis is given on the drama than content or plot . This is the show for you its hilarious also has a manga-ish feel to it . Changes weren't made during the transition from Manga to LvA . Quite enjoyable one of the better LvA I have seen ^^

Don't know its licensed or not if its not , will post torrent : )

Summary : Wiki

Teaser : Ytube

* See inserts: Boys Before Flowers OST

Synopsis
Jan Di is an average girl whose family owns a dry cleaning store located near the luxurious and well known Shin Hwa College. Jan Di meets the four richest and most spoiled boys when she delivers laundry to the school one day. The boys are known as F4 and cause trouble to those who speak out against them.

* Han Chae Young as Min Seo Hyun (F4's best friend)

F4:

* Lee Min Ho as Goo Joon Pyo
* Kim Hyun Joong as Yoon Ji Hoo

* Kim Joon as Song Woo Bin
Just watched the first episode today! I was very excited and looked greatly forward to it. I wasn't disappointed. Sure, there were parts that were kinda iffy, but for the most part, I think they'll do a good job w/ this story.

The parts that annoyed me most were when they would interject English into their speech. First with the silly rich girls who bully Jan Di ("oh. my. god." *gag*), then later with the F4 (speaking like ghetto boys...huh?). I look forward to the second episode.

I'm currently working on d/l the HYD movie, will update on that later.

@Geta Boshi - hmmm, that show looks pretty good. I must admit to being very into vampires now, what with just reading all of Stephanie Meyer's books (twilight series) and also just watching all of Vampire Knight Guilty. I'll have to d/l a couple episodes and see how I like it.

My torrent of vampire host finally got downloaded yesterday so had a mini marathon of 8 episodes .

The show is shaping out to be good. I had expected the show to be cheesy like VK or TW but lived up to my expectations . The name host and gigolo which this shows goes by are misleading IMO a promotional name change to bring in the audience . The show would have had a mainstreaming following if the they had stuck to the manga name Yorugata Aijin Senmonten - Blood Hound - DX . When I heard gigolo associated with it I was like 'lol wut' . The show also went by V.Host so I checked the summary on Wiki and got interested . Also DramaWiki synopsis doesn't do justice to the show and quite frankly is quite misleading . It never manages to capture the essence of show that is .. Mystery Supernatural Vampire .

One of the strong points of this show is the humor its really funny could even go to say rib-tickling . My favorite character so far has to be Diana @_@ No seriously : D

Currently watching the T-Drama Hot Shot:
Quote:

* Title: 籃球火 / Lan Qiu Huo
* English title: Hot Shot
* Also known as: Basketball Fire / Basket Fire Ball
* Genre: Sport, romance
* Episodes: 16
* Broadcast network: CTV / GTV
* Broadcast period: 2008-Jul-27 to 2008-Nov-09
* Air time: Sunday 21:30 - 23:00
* Opening theme song: Hot Shot by Show Lo
* Ending theme song: Yi Ban (一半) Half by Jerry Yan
* Insert songs: See Hot Shot OST

Synopsis
In a school where academic reigns supreme and sports are relegated to a dusty corner of the campus, Li Ying vows to revive the basketball team by volunteering to be the head coach. Her first member is Yuan Da Ying, a country boy who is passionate for basketball but has no skill. Their recruitment goes into high gear when Dong Fang Xiang, a legendary basketball player, transfers to their school.

Around the same time, Yuan Da Ying falls for Zhan Jie Er, a scholarship student who reminds him of his childhood friend. Things are complicated by the fact her family works for Dong Fang Xiang, who she also grew up with. Their encounter may just rewrite the school's basketball history.

Cast
* Jerry Yan as Dong Fang Xiang 東方翔
* Show Lo as Yuan Da Ying 元大鷹
* Zhou Cai Shi as Zhan Jie Er 湛潔兒
* Coco Jiang as Li Ying 李贏
* Wu Chun as Wu Ji Zun 無極尊
* George Hu as Wu Ji Wei 無極威
* Gu Bao Ming as Li Zi Ping 李子平
* Michael Zhang as Can 殘 / Ah Fu 阿福
I quite like it so far. You have to take the goofiness into account though. A good majority of the basketball moves are IMPOSSIBLE, but hilarious to watch. Show Lo really shows off his silly side in this series (I loved him in 'Corner with Love'), while Jerry Yan plays a very familiar rich basketball player, though his serious personality is different from his Domyouji/Meteor Garden persona.
