Favorite Japanese Drama ?

Postby Chibiotoko » Thu 10.27.2005 1:34 am

Im not a big fan of mangas, But I love my JDramas. I think they are better to learn from too because they deal with every day conversation.

Ok my fav to date is Densha Otoko hands down

then Pride

then Orange Days

the Shomuni 1 & 2:)

Trick is my absolute favorite. A Million Stars Falling From the Sky was very good, but very sad. I enjoyed Gokusen, but Gokusen 2 isn't as good. I tried watching The Sleeping Forest but couldn't get into it.

I like Gokusen. It's funny. Actually, I've just started watching the first one, but I haven't seen the second. Also, Hana Yori Dango is good too. I think it's better than the anime version.

HYD drama is from Korea, if I'm not mistaken. >_> (Called "Meteor Garden" right?)

I saw a couple espisodes of "Orange Days" and thought it was pretty neat. Not only was I practicing my listening, but I could learn some Japanese sign language (shuwa) as well! :D

On TV at the moment is a sad story called 1リットルの涙 (1 Litre of Tears). And although this might be seen as a girly drama, I'm really enjoying it. Its based on a true story, and now I want to buy a related book.
Also, an extremely funny drama now is 鬼嫁日記 (Demon Bride Diary?). If you can, i recomend you watch them. hehe Tuesday from 9pm on Fuji terebi ;)

I mostly get into jidai geki. (I'm a Japanese historian, what can I say? ;) )

But I've recently gotten hooked on "Tokumei Kakarichou Tadano Hitoshi."

Via satellite you can subscribe to TV Japan, which features NHK programming, for about $25 a month. If you live anywhere near a Korean video store or a Korean grocery with a video section, they often have some JDramas in addition to the KDramas.

My favorite is H2- 君といた日々. I got really caught up in the suspense of it. Other jdramas which I enjoyed are ドラゴン桜、電車男、世界の中心で愛をさけぶ、1リットルの涙、 野ブタをプロデュース。The first one I watched was 電車男 and that got me hooked on jdramas.

I love jidai-geki, especially Abarenbo-Shogun and Toyama no Kinsan. I was so sad the Abarenbo-Shogun series was finally over :(

I usually don't watch dramas, but I liked Furikaereba yatsu ga iru, an old drama about doctors.
