Re: How About J-Actresses/Actors you DON'T like??

Yes, I do have some, the ones I can think of right now are especially: Higashide Masahiro Everything I have seen him in he is just plain bad. Not one single cell in his face seems to be able to move, much less form any kind of expressive emotion. He is just standing like a stick and reciting his tex...

Re: Takei Emi

I hope it´s okay to be honest. When I saw her for the first time in 'Otomen' I was not very impressed, but then it was just a small part and she wasn´t horrible, so. But in 'Rurouni Kenshin' I found her rather pale, but then not one of the actors performances left an impression on me - I found all v...

Re: Sato Jiro

Ah, Jiro´s "goofiness" had kind of become a trademark for some of his parts. Well, he is quite a good supporting actor. I just recently saw him in the movie 'Judge' (the thriller, not the comedy - there are two recent Japanese movies with the same title) in a more serious part opposite Seto Koji. A ...

My final opinion on Lost Days is, that it´s actually a enjoyable series, but could have been even better with another writer and without Kiriyama, Triendl and Yoshizawa. I took my time and rewatched the whole series again. It´s really not a bad series per se at all, it´s simply that some factors hav...

Triendl isn´t a good actress, but at least she isn´t hamming up her scenes constantly, so I´m okay with her. Apart from Kiriyama´s limited expressions (angry, bland and smilling - always in the same manner - he can´t do more), he is constantly trying veeeery hard to look crazy, which is simply annoy...

I liked this series. It was not one of the best Dramas ever, but it was good.
The story was slow paced and you needed patience here and there, but the characters moved well with it. When you have time and need a "calm" series, I would say have a look at it.
