NHK World English - jibtv looking for Program Monitors

You will be paid in Amazon gift cards. You watch Japanese documentary shows, 30 min long, that are in English, and then write a few paragraphs, about it. Like I just watched a neat story about the Hula Girls of Fukushima tsunami disaster and how they went all over Japan to help cheer up the country....

Yeah. Bad. 20 min into ep 1 and I wanted it to end already. Like a Japanese high school play. Remake of Terminator. Priceless was better. Good Luck! was the best. Engine. Orange Days.

One of the best dramas I have ever seen - Okaasan to Issho

I always wondered why it never appeared online anywhere. Great story, great cast, great theme song. Has anyone even seen it? お義母さんといっしょ(おかあさんといっしょ) I cried a couple of times watching it. It was awesome. I've been waiting 10 years. Nothing. Tragic. No one seems to know it ever existed. http://wiki.d-...

Tsuki no Koibito sucks!

I agree. I watched the first 2 episodes, and that was painful. I would have stopped after the 1st, but my mate wanted to try a bit more. We watched the 1080p version on our HD 55" display. So while the 'eye candy' is nice, its a horrible plot. No character building like we're used to in jdramas. May...

Rain got rained on? - poor sales

$300, $225, & $115 tickets? Thats nutz. I only paid $35 to see Namie, and $60 to see DAI. Even Avex Summer Festa is in the $60 range. I would never pay 3 digits for any concert, foreign or domestic.
