I'd recommend Water Boys :lol It's one of my favs., the drama is about synchronize swimming. It is funny, sweet, heart-warming, and full of action... a very nice drama all around :D I'm sure you will fall in love with the boys.

Ace wo Nerae is a tennis drama thats kinda cheezy but is still enertaining with Aya Ueto.

Seeing I'm a golf fanatic, I'm waiting for a drama that's linked to golf.

Still good even if hockey isn't your thing. If you like it, it just makes the series that much better.

The only other sports related series I've seen was part of Water Boys which I didn't like much.

Also, I forgot about when I posted this, To Heart. Not that great but it involves some boxing...worth watching but not if you are into something elese already,

It stars Jay Chow as Takumi, Edison Chen as Ryosuke, Chapman To as Itsuki, Anthony Wong as Bunta, Jordan Chan as Sudo Kyouchi, and thats all I can remember....probally spelt some of those names wrong as well. Its being filmed in Japan and the budget was 13 million if I remeber correctly.

I've watched the first ep pride and it looks good, exept the quality of the sub. It's so bad, anyone know where I can get Pride raw? ^_^

Another sport-related dorama is Golden Bowl. This drama deals with bowling :P So if you're a fan of this sport, I bet you'll enjoy it. Even if you aren't, there're always the lovely cast to look forward too, lol :lol .

so, apart from to heart, is there any other drama that includes some martial arts (in a training/sports way)? doesn't have to be japanese, but preferably includes some aikido (i like aikido :D)

hey mattman, i think some of the best dramas that have martial arts are in chinese and HK dramas. They arent really the common "forms" like aikido or what now, but they are cool. Try The Proud Twins or Twin of Brothers.

hmm, I think that the sub I'm using is translated from Chinease. The thing that's so darn bad is the fact that they use "Him" when they are speaking about girls :D

There's a new sports drama coming out this summer called "Ganbatte Ikkimasshou" with Suzuki anne and Uchi Hiroki. I think it has to do with the crew team and is kind of like the female spoof of "water boys"

apparently, i wasn't paying too much attention to this thread. i was just giving it some thought, and it occured to me that i don't see asian dramas about golf.

very interesting. i see dramas about baseball (h2), hockey (pride), swimming (waterboys), tennis (ace wo nerae), basketball (my mvp valentine), and even volleyball (i think attack #1??).

but some of asia's most popular sports are not covered: golf and soccer. at least i can't think of one that comes to mind. it was just quite mind-numbing.

Man, you should see Maruyama Shigeki's wife. I can't seem to find any photos of her on-line, but I met her in person at the SONY Open in Hawaii when Maruyama-san was in the field. She's soooooooo beautiful! She could probably be part of the cast in one of those golf dramas.

Well, actually, there is a HK drama about soccer called Kung Fu Soccer. It has Dicky Cheung in it, but I must say, it must be one of the lamest dramas ever made :lol . It's pretty entertaining though, so if you like soccer and don't mind some stupid jokes, check it out.

I can't believe that nobody suggested Engine to you.
Car racing is a sport but now that I think about it, it centers more around something else a bit more then car racing but it is stil mentioned a lot. I just think you should see it and judge for yourself ^__^

Kendo dorama?

Post by Lia-D » Aug 23rd, '05, 19:29

Hi,
I hope that I'm posting in the right place, please don't kill me if I'm wrong...

I've just searched for a dorama about kendo and couldn't find one! I wonder if there really aren't any kendo doramas? Or have I missed something? If they make doramas about tennis, baseball or volleyball, kendo shouldn't be missing on the list!

I'd really appreciate if someone could point me to a dorama (or a movie or anime/manga series or anything) about kendo... Thank you!

Well from all the doramas I have seen, only drama that has a mention of kendo is a chinese drama called Love Contract.That's the only drama I know of having some emphasis on Kendo by one of the main chara's.Aside from that donn think I can recall any other kdrama or jdrama that has kendo as one of the main focus

Matsuura Aya's drama Aijou Ippon! from last year is about kendo. It's pretty mediocre though..

Golden Bowl, if you think bowling is a sport.
Food Fight, if you think eating more & quicker is a sport. It's also the top contender for wors jdrama ever.
Actually Shota no Sushi comes to my mind, though making better sushi is a different kind of competition.

I also want to be notified as soon as Ace wo Nerae pops up somewhere. :D JTV is apparently stuck with the drama while ILA is stuck with the anime. :cry:

BTW: while I didn't really believe it until I experienced it myself - it appears sports anime is highly addictive. :D I guess that's why H2 and Ace wo Nerae are as popular as they are.

Yes it has the great Takeshi Kaneshiro in it :wub:

I also recommended: Pride and Engine (both Takuya Kimura's drama). First one is about Hockey, second about F3000.

My wife would get self-conscious after I chuckled at the bad tennis when she was watching "Ace wo Nerae." :)

So Japan hasn't done any snowboarding drama/comedy yet? It's still popular and trendy over there, so I'm a bit surprised it hasn't made it's way to a TV series. I had an episode of ロンドンブーツ with some snowboarding nampa in it, which was pretty unique, but that hardly counts.

Water Boys & Water Boys 2 are highly recommended. I'm impressed by their determination to get their synchronised swimming right & known. Not only girls get do synchronised swimming yeah! Or is it water ballet? o.o Oh well.. Sports dramas are nice ... depending on which sports it is, ne? Appeals to others differently.

P/S: Thanks for all your recommendation. I watched Ace no Nerae.. ahh, it's yeah... cheesy. XD

Waterboys, both, is recomendable ... Seeing from the many positive reviews. But I personally don't find it interesting. Never finish the 1 season and the 2nd one, I barely finished it ... Thanks to my love for Satomichan >_< The movie is good though (",)

If you like boxing, I really recommend Nagura Onna. It's one of my favorites and it's about a girl (Wakui Emi) who learns to be a boxing coach after she is laid off from an office lady job.

Another one is To Heart Koi ni Shinitai which stars Fukada Kyoko and Domoto Tsuyoshi. It's about boxing too, but not as good as Nagura Onna.
