Yukan Club- Almost forgot this one! I actually watched the whole thing.


hehe I too was annoyed with the shu cream scenes.

Yukan Club is absolutely horrendous. I'm surprised you watched the whole thing.

This was the most painful part of that drama. Otherwise, I really enjoyed it. I wonder why they dragged that storyline so damn long.

Long Love Letter- I do believe there was a letter at the end and I think someone mentioned the words "love letter" but I'm not sure. I liked it that show quite a bit, actually.


Yeah, I liked it too, but I think the preachy "keep the earth clean or the future will suffer" conclusion was a bit of a cop-out to me. And very PSA-ish.

And Hana Kimi was awesome for it's crazy funny factor! It probably wouldn't have worked without Ikuta Toma as Nakatsu though. Maki and surprisingly Oguri Shun were horribly dull, but the supporting characters made up for it.


I would've been bored without Nakatsu. He MADE that drama. If it wasn't for his character, I might have put that drama in this thread.

The plot just wore thin on me and started to grind like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Yow. Sweat

Beware of dark alleys and have your shields on max. Beaten


I don't need a shield, I need a muzzle and straitjacket. Or just an anti-rabies shot, on my more lucid days.

I think that there was a letter somewhere in this drama, but it's been several years since i've seen it. I think the title is misleading too. Maybe there is some ~hidden~ or ~deep~ meaning to it. I enjoyed it, but it's not something I'd want to watch again.

My brain tuned out to that drama as soon as it became (painfully) clear that Tsumabuki Satoshi was not an integral part of the cast... Grumble So I submit to your better judgment re that dratted little letter. Sweat And if there was indeed a deeper metaphysical truth to the story, it was prolly hiding in that tangled overgrowth that Kubokuza Yosuke passed off as his "hair," ne? mwahaha

I'm being extra hard on Maki because after seeing her in NwP, I thought she had something going for her. Guess not. So I'll set my expectations very, very low so I can be very, very nice to her in the future, ne? Twisted Toma was fun and funny, but I didn't find Shun dull at all! I thought he provided that emotional anchor in a drama saturated with inanity. Or mebbe I was just blinded by that *cough* mostly shirtless *cough* athletic physique of his.. Drunk

Can't believe nobody's mentioned Sailorfuku to Kikanju :http://www.jdorama.com/drama_1033.htm

Hopefully that's because almost nobody has ever seen it. Nagasawa as a machine gun toting yakuza. I'd love to have been at the meeting when this was pitched and somebody said, "Yeah, that's a great idea!" Beat You


rofl Wow. To be saccharine AND trigger-happy at the same time. Almost as believable as YamaPi's Flying Doctor turn in CODE BLUE (subtitled THE PECS OF LIFE!!!)... Applaud

Though to be honest, Nagasawa as "machine gun toting yakuza" = Nagasawa as battered girlfriend = Nagasawa as best friend secretly in love with YamaPi = Nagasawa as Mayor of Ouagadougou = Nagasawa as Supreme Allied Commander, ad infinitum. Rolling eyes

Nagasawa was also the weakest link in an otherwise perfect drama, Yasashii Jikan.

Now there is one drama, which in my humble opinion, fits this thread: Orthros no Inu. Only saw one episode but it´s bad, bad, bad, even before Takky appears so it´s clearly not his fault.

I think she did well in Yasashii Jikan too.


On topic: Teppan Shoujo Akane ( I think I messed up the title )
My love for okonomiyaki couldn't stop me from deleting this drama out of my h/drive.

I think I have to agree with Esther on this one. I cringed whenever she was on screen in this drama.

Yes, agree with that it was really bad up to ep4 but after that it got much better. like someone fired all directors/writers and hired new crew. hehe i nearly gave up after ep1 but kept watching because Takky was looking really fine Muack Muack Muack but Nagasawa masami stayed annoying untill last ep. bleh
