^ you didn't like Dear Sister? I really liked it. It was the drama that got me back into jdramas. I lost interest for a while because japan was in a weird obsession with episodic detective dramas for a few years. 

 

I've only seen the first ep of Jimi ni Sugoi so i can't say much. There's only 3 subbed eps out so i'm not even going to bother until it's done. My disappointment this year is NigeHaji. I know it's super popular and i was enjoying it a lot too early on. I just think some of the writing and logic behind the actions the characters have are really weird and weak. I had to drop it after failing to finish episode 5 after multiple attempts.

I watched at least half of it, maybe more - can't remember exactly. It seemed interesting at first, but quickly went downhill for me.

 

NigeHaji is cute. And it does have character development. I like it, but I'm not head over heels. I liked Jimi ni sugoi halfway as well, it's not bad, but it didn't come through in the 2nd half.

Blitzed my way through the first 8 episodes of nodame cantabile. I love the character development and the pace of the story also allows me to appreciate more classical pieces of music.

I don't care much for NigeHaji's ending. I wanted something less conventional. But it was cute nonetheless.

Halfway through Suishou no Kodou. Liking it so far. Ep3 was frustrating though. I always hate when different departments hide things from each other and shit like that instead of cooperating to solve the case. 

 

I haven't caught up with NIgeHaji yet. The last ep isn't subbed yet so i'm not in a rush. I still think it's kinda disappointing and have problems with the writing but it's cute enough to finish.

I just have to recommend "Jin"

Some of you might already know the korean version but I personally enjoyed the 2 seasons of the orignal japanese version much more than the korean version. Even people who have already watched "Dr. Jin" should give "Jin" a chance.

watching Liar game, since I've watched the korean remake some of the games are the same I just don't necessarily remember all the details. But even then there are some significant differenced that makes this original live action just as interesting. Nan's character as naive as she is at least seems to play a slightly more active role while on her mission to make the world around sing koombaya with her.

just finished watching Always Sunset on Third Street 1 & 2 and i have to say this franchise is the true gem of them all, i'm so glad i found it. this one and Wood Job (also Shinya Shokudo) are so beautiful and precious, i had so many emotions while watching them. this genre of movies is usually slept on (at least from what i see) but hopefully Japan will keep making movies like this, they're one of the reasons i fall in love with Japan.

Like colorful artsy type historical movies? I'm not familiar with any japanese movies like that. 

 

Here are some historical movies though in case they might interest you

 



 

I liked the first 2 movies. I haven't actually watched the third one yet. I've been meaning to for years but never got around to it.

Thanks, I'll have a look into these movies.

 

It doesn't have to be artsy, but most of the J-Movies that I've watched generally fit the teen angst/love story feel like that's all their film industry seems to offer. Even something in a modern day setting but where all the elements of a film come together to make a masterpiece would be welcome.

Outside of the idol-y and young adult type movies there's a lot of crime movies or the weirder or surreal type movies. Those are enjoyable but i wouldn't call them masterpieces. You could check out some of the slice of life drama type movies i guess like Umimachi Diary and Like Father Like Son. Probably don't fit what you're looking for though.

 

Since you named some chinese movies though, i highly recommend watching the two Red Cliff movies and In The Mood For Love. They are regarded as some of the best chinese movies and are some of my favorite. The Grandmasters might be up there too.
