Densha Otoko [電車男]
Romance followed by millions [Rating: 6/10]
I would feel pretty strange if I became just like Hermes, involved in a romance watched and advised by thousands of people... They say that love is between 2 people, but then a good public love is still better than a bad private breakup. I have the pleasure to read the original thread on 2-channel.. To make the drama long enough to fill 11 episodes, the producer has definitely taken the liberty to add some elements, but I consider these extras to be unrealistic and do more harm than good - digressing from the original story line. Oh, don't get me wrong, I still like the drama. But I just don't think it's as good as the golden age love dramas like Tokyo Love Story, Love Generation, Long Vacation, etc. If you are a newage Internet blogger, you may find kinship between the story and your life and may enjoy it more...
Tokyo Love Story [東京ラブストーリー]
Golden Drama During Golden Age [Rating: 10/10]
We can now look back to the 90's as the golden age for Japanese doramas: Tokyo Love Story, Long Vacation, 101st Marriage Proposal, etc... The story is about a 5-way relationship involving multiple break-ups and making ups between 5 different people. I would not classify the conversation nor the plot as especially deep or meaningful; however, the actress made the difference. Honami Suzuki became a house-hold name from her portrayal of a cheerful but sad, strong but weak, selfless and selfish girl. I can't but stop crying watching the multiple love stories involved. The story is almost perfect, but also has some major plot holes (e.g. for example, surely, Kanchi would have a chance to see Rita again before her real move to LA even though he missed the train)... Watch this drama with your heart, not with your brain. There are a few other things I don't quite understand. I certainly would have not reacted like the people in the drama did, but then my life would not be interesting enough to be made a story :-) True love eventually will find each other; true love conquers all.
Trick Season 3 [トリック3]
The Real Trick [Rating: 8/10]
The real trick for this show is how it manages to keep the audience captivated despite being in its 3rd season... I enjoy Trip 3 much better than Trip 2 and slightly better than Trip 1. Trip 3 is closer to the format of Trip 2 with the goofy cases and the character development. Some of these clues are rather obvious and I've managed to solve the "tricks" before the explanation. The ending is a nice complement to the series. But then, who wouldn't have guessed that was probably the ending. I would love the ending more if it were a sad ending though, but that's probably not what the average audience wants.
