Interested to know how long do you take to finish a typical japanese drama??

for me.. sometimes I can finish it within a day, if the show is interesting enough...

Recently:
- Sore wa, tosuzen arashi no youni (Sudden storm) ~ 3 days
- Saimin (Hypnosis) ~ 2 days
- moto kare ~ 1 day
- tentai kansoku ~ 2 days ...

sometimes for shows that last more than 5 days, its not interesting to me la.. Sweat

On average? Hmmm... well during the school year it's probably like 3 weeks to a month for 1 drama. Non- school year would be maybe 2 -3 weeks. Yes I'm slow! But I like to enjoy every bit of it and let the show marinate in my head Beaten

Well... basically i do agree with the "marinate" thing.. realised that at the speed I am watching.. the show doesn't really give a "long lasting" impression.... Crazy .. but then again.. sometimes i cannot wait lor.. Beaten
that's why i don't like to watch dorama on the TV.. slow.. lots of CMs... and only once a week..

i loathe dramas on tv as well.. especially in singapore where the commercial break is long like hell.. i've counted once and 1 break is 5 minutes.. woah.. that's why i prefer to buy dramas.. then i can finish at the speed i want..

actually, i got it mostly for her. to tell you the truth, we don't watch that much tv. mostly go out on the weekends and come back tired. winter time is best to watch (too cold to go out), but summertime weather is nice, good time to do things.

If a is really good I'll watch it in a few days, but usually it takes me a week or two weeks to watch a drama. The fastest I watched a drama was Summer Scent in two days. Nut
