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…

horikita-maki-4

  • 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…

Autumn (Spring) Dramas 2007 – Part 2

Posted by on Sep 19, 2007 in Reviews | 3 comments

OK, Here’s part 2 of the new dramas coming to a Japanese TV near you. Again, all info is from Drama Wiki.

Oishii Gohan: Kamakura Kasugai Kometen

The show is set in a rice shop in the city of Kamakura, Kanagawa. It is a home comedy about an obstinate but compassionate old man, Kasugai Ryuuhei (Watari Tetsuya), who runs an old rice shop, his optimistic daughter-in-law (Fujiwara Norika) and his eldest son (Tokushige Satoshi) who ends up working at his father’s shop when he learns of his father’s illness. It depicts how the estranged family rallies around when Kasugai is diagnosed with illness after years of being worn out by his stubbornness.

Stars: Watari Tetsuya, Tokushige Satoshi and Fujiwara Norika.
Thoughts: Food and Illness storyline. Doesn’t really appeal to me…
Starts: 25th October

Joshi Deka!

Nakama plays an enthusiastic rookie cop whose only strong point is her marksmanship, while Izumi plays a veteran detective with the #1 arrest rate. The two work together to solve crimes, despite differences in their ways of thinking.

Stars: Nakama Yukie (Gokusen), Izumi Pinko, Ryu Shi Won.
Thoughts: Detective story. It’s not really grabbing me either…
Starts: 18th October
