Re: Top 5 most underrated jdramas

Well, since this topic is revived, what are some underrated/underwatched dramas from 2015 until now? Hmmm...from 2015 on? Here's 5 of them I think (I may be mistaken though) were not so popular - and I loved all of them: (in reverse chronological order) Koisuru Hong Kong Otoko Meshi Juhan Shuttai! ...

Re: [poll] Your top 5 fav Jp actress, still the same or changed?

...nowadays I find it difficult to name only 5 (and I also have to add that my top5 now change more frequently , depending on the last doramas I've watched - note that I don't only watch new ones; actually, I like mixing them, so I may watch one from the 90s, then a recent one, then one from 10 yea...

Re: Let's learn Japanese....

Hi guys, I'd like to make a lil' joke about my personal dissatisfaction with the "Netflixication" of the J-drama scene by using as a reference/inspiration the adorably funny "Zetsubou Sensei" of the eponimous manga/anime (his catchphrase being "[due to this and that] Zetsuboushita!" = "I'm in despai...

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

I'll admit not paying much attention to actors :sweat: (unless I think they're extremely good actors - and of those, I can name just around half a dozen), whereas I focus more on actresses :P ; those, I devide into four categories: the ones I adore (quite a few, actually :wub: ), the ones I like a l...

Re: Japanese Dialects on TV

Could anybody please suggest me more doramas with Tohoku dialect? I remember Itoh Misaki in "Yama Onna, Kabe Onna" (though I didn't remember that she was speaking in dialect also in "Tiger&Dragon", my bad) and there was some also in the more recent "Koi no Sanriku Ressha Kon de Iko!"...it's my favo...

Re: The Obstacles being JDrama Fan...anybody feel the same?

..but to me the biggest obstacle in being a J-dorama fan per se is that it's so difficult to find people to share this passion with IRL... So very true, and it makes places like these online so much more important. :cheers: ... It's only on very rare occasions you see something Japan related. For e...

Re: The Obstacles being JDrama Fan...anybody feel the same?

I have to confess not having the foggiest idea about K-anything (I only watch J-dorama and J-movies, sorry) so I can't really judge on the difficulty of being a J-dorama fan as compared to something else...but to me the biggest obstacle in being a J-dorama fan per se is that it's so difficult to fin...

Re: [poll] Your top 5 fav Jp actress, still the same or changed?

Good question! If I compare my current preferences with the ones I had, say, 10 years ago, they have indee changed! Furthermore, while back then my top5 were pretty easy to name - since I hadn't watched so many doramas and therefore it was way easier to pick - nowadays I find it difficult to name on...

Re: For New Members - Introduce Yourselves!

Minnasan konnichiwa! Long-time lurker here, my first dorama was "Ichi lt. no namida", I've been watching jdoramas ever since, although not always regularly (I went through some jdorama-drought stints in the past). Still, slowly but surely the passion grew, and atm they're the only thing I watch with...
