As I have the blessing of bmwracer, here is the Kuitan thread!

What do others think of it? I've only seen episode 1, but I love it already.

Absolutely hilarious. I love the way Ogata looks so stern all the time, and bellows at her colleagues. And she's especially unhappy if someone dares to call her "Momo" - which nearly everyone does anyway!

Kuitan eats so much, yet is slim - I wish I knew his secret. And sniffing the mouths of others to tell them what they have (or haven't) eaten - yucky but most amusing. hehe

My blessing isn't needed, just the effort of doing a thorough search before starting a thread is enough... Thumbsup

Same here... It's goofy and silly at times, but never juvenile. A fun drama.

And Kuitan takes his food very seriously. Mr Green

I totally agree - so much fun, but not childish.

Quote:

Momo-chan: "Igarashi...!!!!"


I felt quite sorry for Igarashi - his ears must be ringing after a day at work with Ogata!
I don't think she's capable of saying his name at a normal speaking volume, lol. hehe It's extremely funny, mind.

Quote:

That he does! I love how people wonder what on earth he is doing right up next to their faces - then he tells them about their diet, and they are majorly surprised. rofl

Oh, and wasn't Ogata sniffing her own breath just priceless?!

Just thought I'd sneak in.

I enjoyed Kuitan from beginning to end. And without offering a spoiler... if you love the goofy style of this show... you're gonna love the fight scenes in the fnial episode. I couldn't stop laughing.

There is a special, and from the scenes I saw of it while I was slapping it on a disc and sending it to BMW... it looks fantastic.

Unfortunately the special hasn't been subbed as yet. The guy who subbed the series said subbing the special was on his "to-do" list. But it isn't a high priority. So it's gonna be a while.

And so far it's just at the rumor stage, but from what I've read, they are going to do a second Kuitan series.

The dance number had me rolling.

The entire show is very tongue-in-cheek... Terrific.

I'm wary about sequels, but I am interested. Victory! Peace!

Geezer - I hope there is going to be a sceond series. Fingers crossed

Ohhhh! I didn't know there was a special! Dancing
You say it's gonna be a while before it's subbed - are we talking many months? *gulp*

Just watched episode 2 tonight - it was superb!

I don't really get the references to Kindaichi, though. My subs do try to explain, but they move too fast to catch it all as well as the dialogue. And I'm too lazy to rewind. hehe

Yeah, I was a little peeved by that: they go through the trouble of giving you sidebar information on various items, yet you get very little time to read it... Grumble

I don't recall speed reading as a prerequisite for watching this drama... *extreme sarcasm*

Hmm Monta, I'm going to have to wait until I've finished the series before I read your spoilers (though I'm very curious as to what you didn't like)

I watched episode 3 yesterday, and the way I'm going it wont be too long before I've seen it all.

I haven't got anything bad to say about it myself...yet. But there's always time. Smile

Actually, since you watched the special you should know but at the end of it they did say there was going to be a second season (or second special maybe). I do not want to spoil it because Kuitan was my reason to live throughout last winter`s dramas. Truly very nicely done! ^^

^ Fab news, Nermal! Jumpie

Saw excellent (as expected) episode 4 tonight. I think I'll break into a cold sweat on episode number 9...withdrawal symptoms. hehe

Probably my sense of humor. I'm among the minority who thinks it's not funny. I just thought i could've been more serious since it was reaching the ending as far as i can remember

Well, come to think of it, i think i did laugh at that scene. Not trying to make a let-down, especially for you Keps, since you're currently watching it. The fact that i got annoyed was just because i thought the end would be in a more serious way but not-so-dramatique, but, as far as i can remeber, i think l laughed at that part.

And well i guess the laugh was just Mr Green and not a rofl

still, enjoy...

That woulda been inconsistent with the entire theme of the show: tongue-in-cheek and fun.

I've seen the complete series, I laughed as much in this series as I have in any other funny type drama. The only drawback is it makes me hungry to watch it. The music is kinda cool too.

I'd noticed the good music too.

I especially like the track that ends the show "Kesshou" by B'z. I had never even heard of them before Kuitan.
thtl kindly provided the download of that track when I requested it.

Does anyone know - was it written specially for Kuitan? I can't find it listed in the B'z discography provided here -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%27z

B'z appear to have released 90 million albums (...perhaps I exaggerate slightly...) Smile

Hmm, I listened to some samples of other B'z songs on Last.fm recently, but none were as good as Kesshou. Grumble
