I've been watching quite a few live action movies and Jdramas the last couple of days.

On Sunday I saw the movies Gantz 1 and 2. It was quite gruesome but I enjoyed the plot. I recall a few years ago I tried to watch the anime, but the plot wasn't of a much interest to me those days. How wrong I was :) This is quite a complex world. Plus it was great to Matsuyama Kaniichi among the cast members.

The second one is a jdrama called 'No Dropping out :Back to school at 35'. This reminded me a lot of Gokusen, but this one had much more content - class heirarchy, bullying, teenage suicide, depression, friendship, peer pressure, violence, even depression and bullying amongst teachers. The first episde had me in tears. This is a very good series, and thankfully no cutesy romance to spoil it all. It starts Ryoko Yonekura as the lead.


Work is going all right. I won a raffle at an event at work, and the prize was a £40 gift card to Vue Cinemas, plus a box of movie munchies.

I'd love to start watching a Jdrama in the original version with subtitles. I've never watched any. Which would be your favourite, one you would recommend?

I love quite a few, but its depends on the theme... if you like suspense, Liar Game is quite good, and another would be lawyer based show Hanzawa Naoki. If you like romance, there are quite a few popular once like Boys over Flowers etc. I use Crunchyroll app for all of them.

You can try 'Cinderella Romance', and and Tatta Hitotsu no Koi for romances without teenage drama (or too much anime-ish acting). For comedy try Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. Good luck with the app!!!
