Started Cold Case - Shinjitsu no Tobira. Solid first episode and I already like the detectives, which is a good sign.

Heard good things about that one. It's a remake of an American show I believe.

Mark, we took your kind suggestion and have really been enjoying Daisuki!!, Karina is amazing in the role as you indicated. Very affecting series and a good counterbalance to the thrilling quality of Soshite. Thanks for the recommendation!

Speaking of which, we finished Soshite and I have to say after that pilot the show picked up considerably. It felt like a mix of the American movie The Game with a sprinkle of the American TV spy series (and sadly short-lived) Rubicon, with a bit of Damages (another American show) to it also. It was interesting seeing Fujiwara in both this show and Reverse. Reverse ended up being solid, and pretty interesting, but not as good as N no Tame ni.

We also watched 2030 Kanata no Kazoku, a one-off SP with Eita and a few other familiar faces which was an intriguing watch but not spectacular. Definitely thought-provoking, though, and its vision of future Japan seemed eerily possible.

And I'm watching 99.9, which is better than I anticipated. I think I have only seen Jun in Kimi wa Petto (with Koyuki). It's fun so far, similar to the American show Suits. The second season has been announced for early 2018 and will star Fumino instead of Eikura.

Has anyone seen 3 Papas? Seems like a remake of Be Nice to People.

Off to a good start with "Hello Harinezumi" . A good balance of being funny at the start and moving gradually to serious plot. Eita's role reminds me of his previous role in Lucky Seven with Tomoko Yamaguchi having a similar role as Nanako Matsushima. My only disappointment is watching Yamaguchi drifting in and out of camera as if she only has a cameo role....aka vase

Oh, that sounds pretty good. I like Eita. Thanks for posting your impressions.

I tried Lucky Seven the other day because I like all of the screenwriter's work but I immediately got that turn-off feeling seeing the main character being a cheater from the jump. Is that resolved quickly? Is he just not a good dude? Seemed like not my kind of show but I want to assume there's more going on.
