1. Another sequel, and still going strong! [Rating: 9/10]
I was quite surprised when I started the third season of Churasan. I donft know if there was a different director, but the feel of the show had changed. This isnft necessarily a bad thing. After all, Time has changed and the drama needs to appeal to current tastes. It was just differentc

Another change, and for the same reason mentioned above, was in the physical traits of the characters! I mean, of course this would be an obvious progression, especially since one cannot expect an actor to stay the same over the course of four years, but goodness! It was an all-at-once hit! Ryoko-chan (Eri) has gotten slimmer and more mature in her looks (did she dye her hair?!). Yoshiko-san (Erifs mother) cut her hair REALLY short, Miho-chan (Mariya) grew her hair out long, and the most changed of all was Ayumi-chan (Shoko). She really has grown into a beautiful woman! The guys, for the most part, remained the same. Those who did change changed for the worst (Yamada chopped his hair!). Of course, this is nothing to gripe about.

Whereas the second season depended too much on the first season, I did find that the third season was stronger and had a definite story. It was nice to see the plot revolve around a couple of new characters with which the old characters interacted in a natural, seamless way. This sequel was more enjoyable than the second, although a bit inconsistent. What happened to Harukafs crush on Kaneshiro? Didnft Oba get engaged at the end of the last sequel? Where was her husband-to-be? Didnft Eri and Fumiya previously strive to create their own clinic in Kohama? What happened to that dream? I hope the fourth sequel will answer some of these questions!

Despite these inconsistencies, I loved how yet again the same cast returned to play their trademark characters. I also loved the small jokes played (i.e. like when the head nurse drops into a scene. Eri asks gwhat are you doing hereh, and the nurse replies: gIfm one of those characters who just drop in. Canft have people forgetting I exist!h). So many pricesless moments!

Lets hope the next sequel maintains our high expectations!

I like it. There were some funny moments, but overall it felt quite solemn, and it took its time in storytelling even though it was shorter than Churasan 2. The plot was much more focused than 2, and I found it to be thought-provoking and in-depth at times...

I love the Churasan Series....even though this is just 5 episodes ..The two musical scores in the 3rd episode was the most awesome thing I've ever heard ...It reached my heart and soul....plan to watch the original 156 episodes of the 1st series....later...

Well the number three in the title says it. This is a sequel for the sake of a sequel.

Nothing new, nothing interesting. Totally disappointing.

Eri got so skinny! She looked more mature but Fumiya still looked the same.
