Atashinchi no Danshi – Awesome Cast

Posted by on Mar 17, 2009 in Reviews | 23 comments

Horikita Maki = Mummy??

I’m looking forward to Atashinchi no Danshi, and from the poll from my Spring Drama introduction post, everyone else is too. The official website has been updating daily with the cast of the six adopted sons in the family Horikita Maki‘s marries into. Let’s take a look at who they are!

New! Check out the bottom of this entry for the CM!

Kaname Jun plays the oldest son at 30 years old. It seems the character is jobless but gets everything handed to him. Kaname Jun has been in shows such as Himitsu no Hanazono and Ryusei no Kizuna.

Okada Yoshinori plays the second son, 27 years old. He is a biker and loves to gamble.
Yoshinori has been in lots of things, including Hana Kimi which I recognise him from… But this will be my first real encounter with him.

Spring Dramas 2009 – What I’m Looking Forward To

Posted by on Mar 15, 2009 in Reviews | 10 comments

Most of the new dramas airing next season have now been announced and it’s that time where I can’t wait for the new season to begin! Here I will highlight some of the ones I’m looking forward to or at least have some curiosity in.

I’m Liking The Sound Of…


  • Atashinchi no Danshi
  • Horikita Maki‘s character marries a man who offers to pay off her debts that her father made, and moves into an eccentric family. I think (hope) this will be quirky and fun, and there are lots of well know guys in it: Kaname Jun, Okada Yoshinori, Mukai Osamu, and Yamamoto Yusuke have been announced so far.

  • Hyoryu Net Cafe
  • Toki Koichi leads a pretty dull life. Until he meets his first love again in an internet cafe. Suddenly something happens with the electricity and he and everyone else get stuck in the cafe which has become a strange universe… or something. Perhaps it’ll be something like Long Love Letter, the drifting classroom drama. Stars Ito Atsushi who I hope wont be doing another Densha Otoko take with his character.
    Also staring Asami Reina, and KIKI

Hmmmm? Dunno…

I really enjoyed this episode! It had a lot in it. Paris Hilton, Mei-chan no Shitsuji cast, Horikita Maki, Kamiji Yusuke, and someone who I assume is some baseball player. Lots of laughs, lots of fun :)

Where did I first see her?
Without realising it, the first time I did see Maki was during Densha Otoko, the series. How ever, of course, the first time I noticed her was in Nobuta wo Produce as Kotani Nobuko.

My Opinion
From Nobuta wo Produce, I began to see her everywhere! I really enjoy the shows that she is in and like to look out for her shows. That being said, you can really tell the difference between her real smile and her acting smile. It is really bad!
