Last episode gave me... the creeps. Really. Ok, it was funny and all, but... oivech... The first aid training made me cringe, really. Agreed, stealing the dummy and losing its arm was kind of funny, But... OIVECH! If they perform CPR, at least have someone instruct them properly before they try it. ...

J-Pop simply doesn't have to survive in the US. J-Pop has its primary market in Japan, that's a market of approximately 120 million people. I think the average J-Pop artist could care less whether he'll hit the charts in the US or not, he has his market and his primary fanbase in Japan, that's how i...

Aye, I've seen them too. There aren't really many around, which is quite interesting when you compare that with other actresses. The only ones I have are from a movie (which I still have to get... next month).

I can't really think of ANY remake that was better than the original. Just take Flight of the Phoenix, the remake was horribly stupid. As for remakes of Asian movies, I don't watch them. Why watch the remake when I can watch the original? I'm not interested in an Americanized version of Sadako when ...

Kou finally running around with a sword, should be interesting. Maybe... she's even going to wear a woman's kimono in it just for once *GASP!* It's something you don't see her do often..

But I hate having to wait until 2007...

Indeed. Additionally I don't think that the market in the west would be as big as people claim. Consider this: How many Korean or Japanese movies really make it into our cinemas? Sure, they appear at movie festivals. But how many really manage to be released into our cinemas in a way like the averag...

I do agree with Groink. Japanese TV entertainment is primarily made for Japanese viewers, after all, it's shown on Japanese TV. That's where the TV stations in Japan make the money, that's how it is (and consider some 120 million inhabitants, that's a nice market already). If it would be shown on US...
