I had a different interpretation of the ending... At the amusement park Futaba sees a tree with fortunes tied to it.** She mentions to Hiroki that she used to think the trees were a weird type of postal system. He asks who delivers the letters and she doesn't say. After they separate, they're shown ...

I just finished watching Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi. Very good, but a bit unsettling considering all the earthquakes going on in Japan right now!

I enjoy Akiramike's blog: http://hamsapsukebe.blogspot.com

He updates regularly and puts a lot of thought into his posts. I've found some great dramas through his site. (Keep at it, Mike!)

Koi no Chikara was actually my #6 choice. Fukatsu Eri's pretty much watchable in any show.

First off, I'm a big fan of the writing team, Kizara Izumi. I thought Suika, Nobuta, and Sexy Voice were all thoughtful dramas with lovable characters and warm humor. These days I don't have much TV time so I tend to follow writers rather than actors. I remember checking the wiki every season hoping...

One more vote for Kekkon Dekinai Otoko! Lots of shows are funny, but this was probably the most consistently funny jdrama I've seen. It really deserves more attention than it gets.

Ok, this one's been bugging me... In episode 8 Daruma starts wearing a suit with a stocking over his head. He and Taiko have some interchange about the costume *not* being '20'. Is this some anime reference? For those who haven't seen it, this is a fun series! A little dark and violent at times comp...

A man can have feelings for two woman at the same time, can't he? :-) I saw it as Yuni struggling with feelings for a married woman and a woman that was engaged to his brother. With the married woman (Hirumi, Hiremi?), I saw it more as wanting to protect her from her abusive husband. Some romance, ...

can someone please explain to me the joke in ep6 about yokoyama-sensei's poetry? you know, the line about 'okuda-kun' and 'the doctor's son'. i don't get the joke. I think it's supposed to be funny because it's ridiculous (and bad). Here's the explanation someone gave me... Mirage A white rose is a...

Re: Questions on Lunch no Joou ep10-12(Spoilers).

Greenbean, did you ever get your answers? 1. How does Yuni really feel about Hitami (sorry dont really know her name), the married woman friend. Does he love her but dont want to break up her relationship so he back off? Or does he felt that he dont love her enough, or dont love her at all? Or was i...

A Japanese friend said the frolicking at the end wasn't *that* uncommon among male friends in high school. She didn't see it as particularly homoerotic, just playful. A cultural difference maybe?

Is anyone familiar with the novel? I've read the tone and plot are very different from the drama.

I just finished the last episode. I have to say I liked the ending. It really made sense to me... Ok, I could have done without the homoerotic beach scene...but I liked the fact that Nobuta didn't end up with Akira. For me, the series was about their growing friendship, not romance. If Nobuta ended ...
