Long time since I finished a jdorama.

Just finished Rikuou. Good acting by the entire cast throughout, really bringing all the distinct characters to life. The story moved at a fast pace so it was never boring but I did not find it totally compelling. I was actually drawn more to the racing than all the twists and turns involved in shoe making. The atmosphere feels a bit manufactured at the start but I got used to it. Did not really identified with the traditional values so that probably accounted for my less than full endorsement. Still a very good drama.

....Confidence Man.....Segadon...99.9(2)....Black Pean....Angels in White...Seigi No Se....Signal...Love Rerun..... and many others stilll waiting for English subtitled versions to be put online. My wife and I watch via four main websites (Fastdrama,GoGodramaonline,Gooddrama,Dramago)that often have the same downloads.....but we're at the mercy of people who do this on their own. Are there any other websites that have the whole series downloaded, subtitled and available to watch for free other than what I've mentioned. Or are there other options?? Thanks much.

Started Final Cut. Lead actor blah. Two episodes in, keeping expectations low.

Kissasian seems popular

saw this one too on reddit. oooh, there are subtitles for Naguru Onna.

nyaa.si for raws and d-addicts for subs in case you didn't know already.

How was unnatural? I read that it was really good.

Finished Final Cut, was passable. Lead actor still blah.

Halfway through Rich Man Poor Woman. Oguri Shun is pretty charismatic as Hyuga.

Talking about Tomoko Yamaguchi.

She was wasted in Hello Harinezumi. The whole drama was meh.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll probably still watch it eventually. But now I know not to expect too much.


I did end up watching it. Like junny said, not that great. Tomoko Yamaguchi only got about 5 minutes in each episode until episode 10, she was in that one quite a bit.

Kyoko Fukuda is also in the cast. It used to be that here at JDorama, until Erika Sawajiri came along, she was just about everybody's favorite actress to dislike, but this one isn't her fault. You could have put Machiko Ono or Hikari Mitsushima in her role and it wouldn't have made any difference. Unless you're a hardcore Eita fan, can't really recommend this one.

I watched most of Unnatural but interest waned after the first few episodes, which were really quite good. Feels more formulaic late on.

Have watched first 9 weeks of Hanbun, Aoi so far. Compared with some really good asadoras in the past, this one is a bit underwhelming to be honest. It shines brightest when portraying the mother-daughter bond, some very warm and tender moments which refreshed some of my own memories. Suzume is kind of an adorable baka XD but quite ordinary actually. I think the writer have intentionally portrayed the characters as ordinary people so viewers can easily relate to, as opposed to some past heroines who were exceptionally strong or special in one way or another. Apprenhensive right after Suzume's move to Tokyo, I am really enjoying it again and looking forward to the next episode. The romantic vibe is not especially strong in this one, Nagano Mei and Sato Takeru look good together but haven't really felt like rooting for them as a couple so far.

I am following Hanbun, Aoi via photos released by NHK, lol. I have a fair idea of what's going on but haven't started the drama proper. Then this week's pix show Ritsu getting married?! What's going on? Haha. So curious now.

I agree some past asadora heroines were very strong, such as Asa from Asa ga Kita - she is quite fun though. It's nice that Suzume is a relatable heroine. I guess if there is a love line between her and Ritsu, it won't happen until quite late on in the drama.
