Post by iLUVdram@ » Aug 12th, '07, 14:42

Ganbare to all members of Qeerbeet team, our last hope to have a professionnel work with JOTEI sub !!!

Ja!!

Edit: Jotei has now a subtitle thread! I just post it. It's easier to find now!

Yorokobi are you watching in Japan? I've been wondering about the shows ratings. GOOD?BAD?
I also love watching Shota's portrayal of Naoto, Dark and Dangerous. (YUMMY)
Dramas right now are sugar sweet, a little darkness is good sometimes :-)

Qeerbeet team: thank you

12 episodes

Its true that there has been a lot of drops in the past couple of weeks most probably due to summer festivals and sports matches on tv
However by the looks of it this drama hasn't done that well from the beggining and has lost popularity each episode.

Yes how many episodes? :scratch:

And that's right! the dorama seems to be not very popular!

It's a unusual story! Yakuza, hostesses, Ginza,...No comedy or romance...That's why Liar Game didn't have the success it deserved! because japanese people seemed to like only romance history. :cry:

Although the actors are very well! :-)

Until the beginning, Koda the guruikai boss is very good an his girl friend Reiko! Lol

I will miss them! They star their mean charactere in a very good way!

Most of their scenes are my favourites! :whistling:

Of course, I keep an eye on shota-chou :wub: . maybe he will do such wonderful acting in the next episodes!!! We want more shota! :argue:

And last but not least, the OST and the theme song is so good!! Hope someone will upload it! :salut:

Shota Fight!

Please people do not flame me, this is only my opinion. I think Rosa was miscast for this role. I still do not feel anything for Ayaka. The chemistry between Shota and Rosa is next to nil... Rushing things in episode one did not help. IF Shota was not in this drama I would have given up.
My choice for “Ayaka “would have been Nagasawa Masami
Feel free to chime in.

Perhaps for the sake on the Ayaka character, it's important to choose a no sex appeal girl and let her grew in a super queen women! Don't you think? LOL

Another reason for choosing Ayaka is that they (shota and her) belong to the same agence perhaps....

Chemistry between them? Hum hum! there is just enough in the drama to make me want to know if they will rise to their goal or not! And at the end, be together. I have a little hunch that will be impossible!

Oh don't worry, we all watching this because of shota!!!!!!!!

Ok am not sure what some of the people here are talking about the "no chemistry" every episode i watch where they were together kept me glued to the screen. I think the ratings are bad because not many people are interested in a different type of drama, which i feel is what makes this one quite refreshing. Although we can make assumptions at this point as to what the end will be or what is to happen, we keep getting these happy surprises that makes us want to watch more.

PS: i am officially a Shota fan, God that man looks hot with his hair down and acting all tough!!! Please someone pass me a fan.

When I was watching the RAW, I thought too. but now, I have some sympathy to her now I can undersatnd her more. Her acting is not bad. Don't forget thta she's playing a rustic girl.

LOL What do you think about the scene in the love hotel room after they escaped from Gyuryukai men! I like this kiss scene!! So amazing!

And I'm also an official fan of shota too!! Yoroshiku!

I just finished watching his movie "Nagai Sanpo". Great!! :whistling:

No Flames please
the kissing scene in the love hotel was sad. Maybe I need to clean my eyes but I swear he was kissing her on the cheek. ( I've looked at that scene 3 times) Only the last kiss was on the lips. (Anyone think I'm wrong?)

I wish someone had told Rosa to move Shota's hair out of the way.
UK Fan Girls need to SEE CLOSE UPS :-)
What the hell am I saying this is a JDrama..

Last fridays episode was good

but
they made a cliff hanger to make it seem like she was gonna sleep with her dad but from the preview it looks like she just lies lext to him in bed and it creates bad press

This show is just so weird.
I mean, in just the first episode, there's 2 rape attempts on the main character. Naoto goes from good guy to bad guy to good guy in 10 minutes. Ayaka sleeps with the old guy to soften his heart. I haven't seen past episode 3, but I've seen bits and Naoto starts working at the club as a waiter? What? You'd think, "Oh, this will be an interesting drama since it's so different" but really, it's just awkward.
And yet I'm still gonna watch because I adore Matsuda Shota.

Yes the show seems to be an unusual one!! And I read somewhere that is the first time for Rosa Kato to play a non innocent high school girl . they made a good choice to add Shota to the cast!

I think the first rape attempt which turn into her exclusion from school, make her very angry. That's why after she knew what her father did to her mother, she decide to use what these men need (sex with her or other women) like a weapon to destroy all of them!

About Naoto and the second attempt! He was already a bad guy! A yakuza. He acted a goodie because she want to use her for their sex business later. But she finally knew the men he really was, so like he said; there is no necessary again to lie to her.

And you're right, the story is so weird! Unuasual for a jdrama! But I think it's important to know that this kind of area exist also in Japan: yakuza, prostitution, hostesses, corruption,...

Héhé This is the real japan! :salut:

And like you I adore Shota too! I agree with the choice he made for his role here!!

Maybe!! :-)

But don't you think that Ayaka role must be played by a classic japanese beauty like her! She want to be a JOTEI in Ginza, so traditionnal area. And also, we want to see how episodes after episodes, she is growing to a beautiful woman! Remember at the beginning, she did'nt have any sex-appeal...but now!!! So sexy...

Here the Ginza JOTEI in 2002
Image
And the article I found about her and this world. http://www.links.net/vita/trip/japan/ga ... hobai.html

Now, my opinion is with shota or not, this is a good drama to watch! And the japanese public think the same! The audience rate has increased yet. :cheers:

iLUVdram@ you said that the Ayaka role should be played by a classic Japanese beauty. I believe Rosa is half Italian (father) and half Japanese (mother)....

I'm glad the ratings are going up. The drama is interesting and,Ayaka is growing on me like roses. BUT

LOL...
I don't forget that she's a half blood! :D But when you see her the "japanese blood" seems to be more obvious!

Although, when I said "classic" beauty That was in comparison with a "modern" beauty :whistling:

In the beginning I was watching because of shota only...but now...because of the drama itself! :D

Yes it's good if audience rate continue to raise! :cheers: JOTEI POWAAAA!

You know am beginning to think some people are just skipping through the episodes because they lack an understanding about the story. Perhaps am more aware of every little significant detail but i feel the dramas is not going slow at all....it would be a disaster if it went any faster. Also just because some of us think this drama rocks does not mean everyone needs to like it, it may not be suited for your taste.....believe me there are a lot of good dramas out there that i have no interest in watching. So it does not really have anything to do with the story not being good or the characters, just taste.

JOTEI theme Lyrics by Siantut (s-projects.org)
Kanata by NanaMusica

彼方

ため息飲み込む 風の吹く帰り道
背中に翼が 無い事を知ったあの日

独りの夜に襲われても
涙を乾かすしかない
月も星も届かないから
人は手を伸ばす

いつも走り続けて行く事が
いつか全てにつながるのならば
もう二度とうつむかないから
きっと瞳が見つめる彼方へ
夢を運べる日が来ると思う
いつだって愛が押し寄せる 場所へ

心のままには 生きてはいけないのか?
汚れたこの手は 本当にキタナイのか?

流されてゆく人の渦に
感情さえ忘れるけど

心から笑える日々を
きっと見つけよう

いつか生まれ変わることできても
私は私を選んでいたい
悲しみと愛を引き換えに
鏡の中に映った瞳を
まっすぐ見つめていられるように
この朝に約束をしたら 行こう

小さな石につまずいても
優しさが枯れそうな日も
どこまで行ける強さが
あると信じたい

okay, at first this series sounds very familiar to me.

minus the part that the main character's a high schooler and her parent passed away and Jotei doesn't contain adult scenes.

the plot's somewhat similar to the 2005 drama http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Jyouou. (i've watched that).
But in the Jotei wiki the title of the manga's not Jotei, but Jouou. Can someone pls correct it?

edit: http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=10900 (link to the manga)

I'm gonna watch the 1st episode and see how it goes. XD

Jouu and Jotei are both based on the mangas of Kurashina Ryo, that's why you see the similarity in the story. Kurashina also wrote he the manga that inspired Yaoh, http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Yaoh.

Can someone tell me what episode they are on in Japan? Is the series over? I'm just curious of how closely we are following the actual release. I'm always amazed at how fast everyone involved finishes completing a sub. Thanks.

I've seen two first eps, but then I can't download the newest eps, b.c I'm currently downloading Hana Kimi, LIFE, Tantei Gakuen Q and Nobuta wo Produce, and I don't have so much space on my hard drive to download another drama, but when I'll clean up my PC I believe I'll be able to watch Jotei.

About Matsuda Shota: he was great in HYD, he was greater in LIAR GAME, and his long hair in Jotei are meowy he looks kakkoi.

Wow.. I'm beyond impressed with this dorama. Although it starts off really slowly, the dramatic effect builds up quite fast and managed to impress me and leave me hooked.
