the only dorama with kyoko fukada i didn't detest.....cuz she only has a supporting role ancillary to tamura masakazu, miki nakatani, ryoko hirosue, and naoko iijima


haha, those four should be able to eclipse any missteps she makes

It's ridiculous. I'm starting to think that the grainier the video, the more I'll like the series. (Must be an old guy thing.)


I definitely concur. Those grainy videos of dorama from the 90's that are out there are so infinitely better in content, acting, and entertainment than what has been proffered to dorama viewers in recent years. No question, it is a generational thing (like you, I'm an old fart relative to the age of most of the people who post on this site). I find that the infrequent post-2000 dorama that I enjoy is either a youth-averse Taiga or Asadora series or a dorama that has 30+ year old actors/actresses in the lead roles (how rare is that nowadays) or veteran character actors with significant supporting roles.

haha, now that's an excellent rule of thumb to follow

I watched clips of Farewell Mr. Premier and I can totally see that Mitani influence when compared to his other drama, Ohsama no Resutoran (King's Restaurant).

Koki Mitani imo is a brilliant screenwriter and filmmaker. His work has been compared to that of Billy Wilder and Neil Simon. I would also compare him to the Marx Brothers as well. Like them, his works exhibit razor-sharp wit, and he's not afraid to throw in some goofy slapstick as well. Ohsama no Resutoran might just be the best dorama I have viewed, and Furuhata Ninzaburo, another fine series he scripted, is akin to the marvelous Columbo series in terms of format, intelligence, and humor. His Taiga drama Shinsengumi! split viewers (they either hated it or loved it); I was throroughly entertained by it, even though I knew much of it was nowhere near factual. His theatrical movies--Radio no Jikan, Mina no Ie, and Warai no Daigaku (he wrote the screenplays for all three and directed the first two)--are hilarious and clever. His latest movie, Uchoten Hotel, which he directed and wrote, is set to come out on DVD later this month (it was a New Year's release and, from what I gather, was pretty popular). I can't wait to get a copy.

Finished Shota no Sushi, excellent dorama. Wasn't overloaded with cliches, the ones that were present weren't overly obvious to the point of distraction. The characters were written well, and acted well by the cast for the most part. Although the ending of these types of doramas is obvious, the route that it took was executed well, and didn't lead to easy predictions.

and you get to learn about how japanese people eat sushi. as opposed to how i see alot of people (my family as well) use a lot of wasabi and shoyu in the dish and then drench the rice...

Yes, it's said that (im generalizing) americans like to eat something with more punch, whereas japanese people eat the sushi for the flavor of the ingredients. It was rather embarassing when i first had omakase at the counter and did what i normally would. It's fine to do at a buffet type place that uses dyed fish, but not acceptable and an insult to the sushi chef.

not that i don't to it..but i rarely do it nowadays...but if you went a good sushi restaurant and did what they do here...use the
wasabi-joyu...that's a big no no...chef would probably beat your ass....
they usually put a dab of wasabi under the slice of fish anyway....

the wasabi and soy sauce aren't supposed to touch.

wasai-joyu is traditionally for other foods like zaru soba
