[Discussion] Yamada Taro Monogatari

Post by aishoni2 » Jun 23rd, '07, 05:56

This is my first time starting a thread. Please be nice.

Yamado Taro Monogatari

Image
Date: Fridays, 10.00pm
Station: TBS
Official Site: http://www.tbs.co.jp/yamadataro-story/
DramaWiki: http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Yamada_Taro_Monogatari
Cast: Ninomiya Kazunari & Sakurai Sho (more detailed cast will be added later)
Synopsis: (coming soon)
Announced Fansubbing Groups/ Individuals: Stormy Team & arashi.vox
I'll try do updates on the infos & news about Yamada Taro here when I'm free.

I'm quite concerned nobody started a discussion thread for this dorama here in d-addicts. My reason for starting this thread might be selfish & please forgive me, but does anybody planning to upload the RAW via torrent here... gryzze? anybody? Please..

The buzz about this drama seems to swirl exclusively in Arashi fandom which I don't mind (love it actually) but I would love to hear more views on the dorama/manga from the active dorama watchers here. Looking forward to see this thread grow ^___^v.
Yoroshiku.

That's a cute banner. I haven't seen it before. I'm looking forward to watching this, Hana Kimi and First Kiss next month. Too many potentially good dramas out next month.

I'm quite exciting that Oshinari Shugo will take on the role of Keiichi. His character is hilarious.. which is odd because I've only seen Shugo in serious roles. I can't wait to see him as the lovesick boy with a serious boy crush on Taro. :mrgreen:

been sooooooooooooo busy.
SORRY!

here's a youtube clip of Nino & Sho-kun promoting Yamada Taro in Osama Brunch


there are other promo clips of YamaTaro like from Channel Rock (featuring Taro HOT looking dad, Matsuoka-san from the rock band SOPHIA) & TV NAVI - a more detailed look into the making of the drama & some sneak peek for the 1st episode.
ITS LOOKING VERY PROMISING

Fun facts from the clips I manage to catch.
- Taro(Nino) conduct the piano playing Takuya(Sho) for the school orchestra. (Nodame???)
- housewives + Taro rushing to buy REALLY CHEAP korokke (ala the caramel puding race in MBMH)
- the girl who's playing Taro love interest was really cute. They had to reshoot a scene of them starring into each others eyes because the girl were so "doki-doki", blushing, and went really nervous (which made her smile when she was not suppose to).
- Taro father looks like the guy who played Kira in Death Note. or maybe like a cuter cooler version of Koichi+Ohno Satoshi..
- Sho-kun mastered the piano piece on the day of shooting
- Sho-kun have really big eyes, luscious lips &... ok.. i'll stop now..

6 JULY

a sneak peek clip.

I love that interview. His English get's #1 for Arashi. lol
Even though he can't speak much English, what he can he says clearly and with proper grammar! **hugs Nino**

Also, boooo to the people who thought that was staged. He speaks English in various other stuff too just as well. **dodges the flying food and sharp objects**

lol. As for Sho's round Lips...

I would rather see his shapely body~~. **feels up his abs**

I'm really looking forward to this. The summary doesn't sound awfully exciting, but Nino's an awesome actor and Sho's in it, too. I hope it'll be good. It might not be getting a lot of attention because Hana-Kimi is also airing this season (which is also my most looked-forward-to jdorama, so I can't say anything ^^).

The posters look really nice. :)

He was really lovely as Bambii. The most loved character for me.
wait...
are you the same guy who thought Kattun sang the Kisarazu ending song?
ah.. sorry for the sudden burst of bold letters at the Kisarazu thread ^^;;;. I really love A Day In Our Life & Arashi and don't really care about Kattun's music :p (sorry Kattun fans, Jin's voice & Kame, Koki acting is great tho')

Sho-kun & Arashi are awesome guys. They have a lot of fanboys too from well known directors, novel writers, comedians & most of the TV host that had the pleasure of working with them... oops.. sorry for the Arashi babble.

Sho & Nino was the contestant of the latest Tokyo Friend's Park. The Kisarazu team & Hana Yori Dango cast have also partipated in the TFP. A really fun show where the contestants can win fantastic prizes.
The YamaTaro brothers won...
... A PAJERO EACH, video cam [each], trips to Disneyland Paris, & a car navigation system
Abosolutely wonderful!

Thank you so much for the link. I have watched it and it was so funny.
And I can't believe they won a car, well two (one for Nino and one for Sho). They're so lucky... It seems it's been a long time that someone has won a car in that show :O I'm happy for them that they won a lot of things there :-)

-Nino will cosplay... a lot.
-Some say it will involve some dancing ala musical
-Expect quirkyness
-The first Episode is titled :The Beautiful Prince is......... Extremely Poor (thanks Jen for the info!)

aishoni2:

Thank you so much for all the information and the clips :-)

I really want to watch this drama so bad. I have watched the SP and it seems that it's going to be so good, with good quality, with good acting and with an interesting story. :wub:

At first I had my doubts of this drama but after I watched the SP, they changed my mind by complete.

And the theme song is really good, but I don't know why it gives me a nostalgic feeling... :cry:

The previous drama (Tokkyu Tanaka 3 Go) I liked it so much, so I think that TBS will do an excellent job in this drama :-) And the previous one was HYD2... And I liked it too.

I really hope that this drama can do it very well. And I'm glad that today is the day of the first episode :lol

There's a LJ for the drama:

It was really really really really awesome and full of crack. It is obvious that the HYD writers and team did this:

The cinematography is similar, but there is quite a bit of well-done CG in the fantasy scenes. The opening scene.... lawl

They managed to make the school look very luxe without being stuffy. Nice comparison between that and the Yamada shack.

Mimura is sort of an aloof, snooty rich kid who immediately becomes obsessed with finding out who Yamada is. He totally would have rolled with the F4.

The kid who played Yuuki's punk boyfriend in HYD is in this- he plays a guy in the same class as Taro and Mimura who is mega-jealous of the attention they get from the girls.

Nino's puppy-dog eyes are lethal! :wub:

I know they don't want to manga-fied the drama, but if only they put stars or some sort of glow-y lights around Yamada whenever he smiles.. that would probably be more convincing.. because that 'ding' did not help much. He looks.. normal. Not really faint worthy.

I love Nino and all. He's adorable, so is Yamada, but he's not exactly gorgeous. It'll take some getting use to, but what I love so far is the relationship between him & his siblings. I knew I'll get some teary eyes watching them together.. and I sort of did.

It feels as if the drama is more on the serious side ..but then again, it's only the beginning. Episode 2 will be hilarious!

anyways, the episode was good. i watched it raw so i didnt understand most of it, but
it was obvious just how much nino cared for his family, which is just about the sweetest thing.
his smile couda been better i think.
and i love how sho stalks him. its funny :mrgreen:


cant wait for the subs to come out so i can understand the episode better.
and i`m sad that theres not more people in this thread.... :-(

The cinematography is similar, but there is quite a bit of well-done CG in the fantasy scenes. The opening scene.... lawl

They managed to make the school look very luxe without being stuffy. Nice comparison between that and the Yamada shack.

Mimura is sort of an aloof, snooty rich kid who immediately becomes obsessed with finding out who Yamada is. He totally would have rolled with the F4.

The kid who played Yuuki's punk boyfriend in HYD is in this- he plays a guy in the same class as Taro and Mimura who is mega-jealous of the attention they get from the girls.

Nino's puppy-dog eyes are lethal! :wub:
haha @ the comment on Mimura :lol
and i knew i saw that guy before... (Yuki's punk boyfriend)

i liked the ending theme.

im in japan right now. when i was on the train yesterday, i saw someone that looked like nino. i wanted to take a picture of him, but then i wouldve been too touristy.

Sometimes that isn't always a bad thing... :whistling: Hooray for Adblock and the ignore button. And the scroll button... :fight:

Don't worry, more people will watch the show and it has a built-in audience just from Arashi fandom. More people will watch, love it, and start talking. Hana Kimi has all the hype at the moment but I've been looking forward to this ever since it was announced. :thumright:

While watching the first episode, I kept thinking I saw the main female lead in another show. I didn't want look it up online. I bet myself to figure out before the show ends.

Finally came to me half way through the show. She play the childhood friend in the movie "Way of the Blue Sky". Wonderful little movie, if you like school drama. You had to watch the movie twice to figure out the action of the main character in the movie. The movie is like live action version of some Anime.

BTW, I was talking about Tabe Mikako

woooow , what a drama :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
at first, i was more excited to watch hana kimi than yamada taro but after watching 1st ep of both drama, i have to say that YTM captured my heart.
this would be my main drama to watch for this season. it's just great. i was crying at those last scenes. those little kids were so adorable. its just as good as HYD. loving it so much.
even though 1st ep did not live up to my expactations, i am still going to give it a try. after all, its hanazawa rui :P

A question on episode 1 of the DRAMA:
How can Yamada Taro and Ikegami Takako, who comes from a POOR family can study in a luxurious expensive school like Ichinomiya?? And they're both in the TOKUSHU(special?) class right?? What special class is this? Does this mean they're both smart, so they study in Ichinomiya with scholarship support?

To those who had read the MANGA, need help:
I like to read Mimura and Yoshiko stories, so I want to know in which manga volumes, Mimura and Yoshiko plots are?? Like which volume has Yoshiko first met Mimura? Which volume has their engagement? Which volume has the story where Mimura and the classmate girl who liked him, took Yoshiko to the beach, then Taro stalk them coz he's worried Mimura will do "something" to his precious little sister xD Yoroshiku onegaishimaaasu!!!

Is the rating for the first ep out yet?? x) I really think YamaTaro is better than HanaKimi, I wonder if it will get better ratings or, lower?

About the ratings:

For the last season I always checked for the ratings for Tokkyu Tanaka 3 Go (TBS, 10:00 PM). So I know a little how it works.

Well for the dramas in friday, saturday and sunday the ratings are at 10:30 PM (Tokyo) in monday (earlier or later, but around that hour).

And for the dramas in monday, tuesday, wednesday and thursday are the next day (of that day) at the same hour (earlier or later, but around that hour).

I check this page:
http://artv.info/ar0707.html

For the time in your country:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/f ... c=0&p1=248

The one we want to know:
http://artv.info/ar0707.html#yamadataro-story

The only bad thing about this page are the average ratings, because not all of them are exact. But everything else is ok.

I hope it helps :-)
We have to wait a liitle bit to know the ratings of the first episode of Yamada Taro Monogatari :-(

Answer:
Yamada Taro has the biggest scholarship in school and he's also the top student. He has a 3M yen discount on fees. I think Takako isn't on scholarship (from what I understood)... Takako's parents just work hard to make her study in an expensive school (kinda like Makino ne)...
Also, the hard subs by Arashi @ vox are already out...

Tabe Mikako is in this? Another reason I should check out this drama then. :)

If you like seishun dramas like "Way of the Blue Sky", you should see if you can find "Yoru no Pikunikku / The Night-time Picnic". They share much of the same cast and were both directed by Nagasawa Masahiko.

I just saw the first episode... and it was definitely entertaining! I liked the Arashi theme song in the beginning (I can't wait to see the PV for that), and Nino and Sho were both good fits for their roles. It's pretty amazing to me that Nino is already 24 and he can pull of being a high schooler!

I liked the bits with Yamada's smile making others swoon over him. Kind of unrealistic, but it was really funny. Nino's really cute though.

The previews for episode 2 seemed... interesting. I'll definitely be watching it though!
