No SPEC this week because of Japanese Americans (which was very moving and made me cry buckets despite the "Japanese American's" inability to speak English >_> But meh, details).

Regarding SPEC, I love how they remix the ending song in each episode. Also:

Oh god episode 4 of Freeter. ;_; It hit me straight in the heart. This a very well written, well acted drama. I initially started watching it to feed my crush on Maruyama Ryuhei, but it's turned into one of the best this season. Once again Nino proves himself as a natural actor. Those tears...! It also reminded me just how much I like watching that guy in peril. lol

Nagareboshi is so good, too~ Ueto Aya is adorable and Takenouchi is so sweet. The other cast is likable too, especially Kitano Kii's rakugo fanatic boy friend. Goro-chan is also awesomely evil and sketchy.

SPEC, Freeter and Nagareboshi. Definitely the top 3 must-watch dramas this season Big Grinb

I saw that too Sweat -> I hope we get some details on this.

Before starting a longer series like Hotman, I decided to watch Wagaya no rekishi, a 3 episode long SP. It follows a family from the 40ties to the 60ties. Some of my favorite actors are in it and some great people have cameos as famous people from that time. But overall I find it a very naive view of the past, nostalgia at its worst.

Thinking about starting Tsuki No Koibito. HAvent seen KimuTaku in awhile.
After finishing up with a long series like Queen Seon Deok(so much fun) kind of at a loss as to which to watch next.

Same here. D:

Yeah, I had the same issues with Wagaya. It barely touched the surface of history. Though the cameos by famous people were cool, a lot of them felt forced as if included for the sole purpose of name dropping. I expected a little more from Mitani Koki so I was disappointed.

Just finished watching Teio. It was ok. I give it about a 6/10. It had a descent story about one guy working his way up from the bottom of the night club industry and eventually reaching the very top.

Episode 7 of Manatsu no Merry Christmas, been an okay watch though not a classic, started to drag in the middle but really picked up last episode, hopefully that sets things up for a good ending. Fingers crossed
Been really wanting to watch Hancho, downloads of the episodes are just so sporadic, some finish in a day or so, others haven't finished yet in over a week. Shameful Cry

Finished up Manatsu no Merry Christmas, no ground breaking drama but I ended up enjoying it, Mr Green luckily it didn't end up as sappy as it could have been. Sweat The way they shot Miki in this drama really thought she was pregnant, checked and guess she wasn't. Shake Head Whole cast was good, always enjoy seeing Ren Osugi in anything, Applaud thought Ai Kato's character Natsumi was the best though. Victory! Peace! Want to start Hancho, only 11 out of the 13 episodes are gonna end up downloading, think there's a problem with the 2 that won't, Puppy Dog Eyes may watch it as it is and hope nothing major happened in those 2 episodes.

Hi, I'm new to the forum , I've recently finished watching Bloody Monday which seemed really good to me...... until I sat back and thought about the holes in the plotline and how stupid both the police and the terrorist were.

Now watching Seigi No Mikata, which I really like.

Welcome to the forum Sun_Shang_Xiang. Big Grin

As for Bloody Monday, I think quite a few people have felt the same way you did.

Well, watched 5 episodes in a row of Tsuki No Koibito yesterday.
So I would say Im really enjoying it. Victory! Peace!

Loved the ending of Tsuki No Koibito.
So did my husband.
Just from the speed that I watched it with says a lot about how enjoyable it was.
Mr Green

Now as to what to watch next? Head Scratch
