You should probably wait until the weekend or have a day off school to watch it because you might be emotionally broken for a while T__T

I'm watching Jimi ni Sugoi and Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu this season. Both are fun.

 

I checked out Kuroi 10-nin no OnnaSuna no TouCareer and Sennyuu Sousa Idol Deka Dance. Didn't like them.

 

Planning to try watching Chef and Sniffer.

I've always wanted a thread like this since not so many people on OH seem to watch j-dramas so less likely to be watching the same thing and not having an outlet to describe my thoughts.

 

I'm a bit conflicted about doctor x season 4. I'm not sure if I should start watching it now, or wait until its finished and fully subed.

No problem~ 

 

Yea i've thought about making this thread for like 2 years but never did lol. Official threads for jdramas aren't really a thing on this forum so a general one seemed like a good idea. 

 

I'll wait to see how it goes and then i'll ask a mod if the thread could be stickied/pinned.

I sometimes want the same thing for korean dramas that don't get all the hype that others get.

Fall dramas that I'm watching:
Cold Case
Hippocrates no Chikai
Lady Davinci
Career (just for Tamaki Hiroshi)
Kuroi 10-nin no Onna
Doctor-X (repetitive but the fact that Daimon still kicks some arse feels good)
Suna no Tou (just for both Matsushima Nanako and Kanno Miho but if it gets ruined by an affair between Kanno and that young guy, I might drop. Nanako's stalker/mysterious character is good)
 

Might continue or drop in the long run:

Chef
Jimi ni Sugoi (only interested in the proofreading, Satomi and Aoki Munetaka's scenes. Honda Tsubasa needs to work on her acting. Putting her and Satomi together in a scene makes her look really bad. Also, I think I'll be forever impressed by Satomi's bullet train/machine gun mouth, talking nonstop :happy: )
Nigeru wa Haji (first episode so-so but looking forward to 2nd and hopefully it picks up)

 

Romantic comedy has never really been my cup of tea ^^;;

 

Disappointed with pilot:
IQ246 (Oda Yuji's accent bothers me a lot and Tao Tsuchiya's role is questionable to the point of her being wasted and relegated for comic relief)
The Sniffer (love both Abe Hiroshi and Teruyuki Kagawa but the tone of the drama reminds me of IQ246. I'd like it more if they tone down the comedy)

Interested to watch:
Kaseifu no Mitazono (browsed the first episode and it looks funny)

Watching Nigeru and love it, I love the undertone of it,

 

Jimi Ni Sugoi left me with wanting satomi and suda scene all day.. I like their chemistry but Honda seems out of place

Where are you watching Jimi ni Sugoi? I tried looking for sites to watch it on, but most of the ones I've looked at (Dramacool, Dramanice, Gogodrama, Kdramasubs) had horrible subs timing. Like the subs wouldn't appear until like several seconds after the characters finished speaking.

Since it's a general thread, I'll just post something here lol.

 

Loving NigeHaji so far. The leads are cute together and the chemistry is good. So far, this is the only dorama with an upward in ratings for 3 consecutive episodes.

 

Btw, has anyone here watched Mother, a dorama from 2010? Really good, really sad, really excellent acting. It pretty much launched the career of Ashida Mana and landed her first lead role afterwards. If you've watched Mother, you'll know that there's a reason why Mana-chan is a 'crying princess'. The reason I mentioned this though is because Korea will be remaking Mother next year with Lee Bo Young taking on Matsuyuki Yasuko's role.

You're either gonna have to wait until the streaming sites reupload with it fixed or download raws and softsubs that are correctly synced. I was gonna watch it today but i had the same problem so i had to dl it. Haven't watched it yet though so i might still have to resync the subs myself like i did with NigeHaji.

Mother is my favorite jdrama and Mana is amazing in it. My favorite child actor performance in an asian drama used to be the little girl in the kdrama Thank You but damn Mother and Mana were amazing. When she explains the reason behind the mailbox T__T

 

Oh god they're remaking it OTL. So now there will be a korean remake of my favorite taiwanese drama, chinese drama, and japanese drama. Haven't heard good things about the remakes so i don't have hopes for Mother's.

I watch on dramanice, but I don't really need subs. Sorry.

i was planning on checking out kuroi10 and suna no tou, what exactly did you not like about them and how far did you get?

 

currently im only watching higanbana. it's not the most well-written/acted drama but it hits all my sweet spots (mystery/crime + female ensemble + supernatural) so i love it

 

this mother you guys are talking about, i lowkey want to watch it.

1-2 episodes. Both are just not my thing. A matter of personal taste.

Suna no Tou is probably good, i just don't care much about the theme that they're exploring. Kuroi10 is for a very specific audience, you either like the style, or not.

Finally watched the first ep of Jimi ni Sugoi. Yep i had to resync the subs 2/3 of the way through after a cut to commercials. Liked the first ep though. I've seen a lot of people say how shit Honda Tsubasa's acting is but i don't think she's that bad. She's usually decent enough. There are other bigger named actors that are her level or worse. I think she's cute and could be biased though~  :)

 

Also watched the second ep of NigeHaji today. The subs were actually synced :O

You should! It's very sad though. So don't watch it if you don't want to cry.
