What are you watching this season/year?
What did you like the most last year?
How often do you watch dramas?

>Toho Nanahun
>32-year-old Kurosaki Yoriko has no man, no friends and no job. She starts to live alone for the first time and comes in touch with a new world. This is the story of the small incidents that occur within a 7-minute walking distance from her apartment.
I love this show. Yoriko is quite embarrassing and almost all of her problems are self-induced and wouldn't be problems for anyone else, but I can't help but feel for her anyway and the situations are hilarious.

>Majisuka Gakuen 4
More of the same shit, the acting is worse than ever, I consider dropping this.

>Hana Moyu
Taiga drama of the year, mainly watching because of actors: Mao Inoue, Kengo Kora and Masahiro Higashide, will probably put it on hold and marathon it.

>Utsukusiki Wana - Zanka Ryoran
>34-years-old Rika Ikeda has an affair with 54-years-old Sota Kashiwagi.
All of the characters act questionably in at least one way so I don't feel any sympathy for anyone, but they sure are fascinating to watch.

>Second Love
I'm not big on romance dramas, but the pairing is good and I like Kamenashi Kazuya's acting.

>Dakara Koya
>Morimura Tomomi is a housewife scorned by her husband and two sons, and yet she continues to protect the family. On her 46th birthday, she leaves home in disgust and embarks on a 1,200 km journey.
The message is okay, but this one is mostly aimed at women, gonna drop it.

>Ouroboros
Probably the best drama this year. Full of action and suspense, and of course, stellar leads -- Toma Ikuta and Shun Oguri, also Juri Ueno.

>Gakkou no Kaidan
I'm only watching this because everyone is so pretty.

>Things I'm interested in, but no subs:
Keibuho Sugiyama Shintaro ~ Kichijoji-sho Jiken File
Oniichan Gacha
War of Money

Name me a drama that's actually story-driven and not hung-up on its diverse characters with a troubled past. Very rare indeed, it all boils down to the same shit.

I once saw a show with another null-story which was basically an hour-long commercial for Nissan. During the commercial break they had Nissan commercials referencing the show itself and the program was sure enough brought to you by Nissan.

No not at all. True detective is grounded in reality and has some fantasy/horror implications but everything is rational and explicable in human terms. Mozu is more like Hannibal, in that the setting is ostensibly contemporary but the characters have almost magical superpowers that defy logic and reason. Mozu is lazy writing.

My recs.

>Healer
Seo Jung Hoo is so-called "errand boy". For a relevant price he may complete any task, only if it's not connected with murder. Under Healer's mask he had run foul of some organizations that now strive to catch him, however no one knows who he really is.

>Punch
Park Jeong Hwan is the chief of the anti-corruption investigation team for the Supreme Prosecutors' Office. To get to his position, he has made compromises on achieving justice. Jeong Hwan then learns that he has a malignant brain tumor and does not have much time to left. To end his life without regrets, he points a gun at corrupt Public Prosecutor General Lee Tae Jun.

>Kill Me, Heal Me
After a traumatic experience in his childhood, Cha Do Hyun, a third-generation billionaire, suffers memory lapses and his personality then scattered into seven different identities. He tries to regain control over his life with the help of Oh Ri Jin, a first-year psychiatric resident who helps him secretly. But Ri Jin’s twin brother, Oh Ri On, is a writer who is determined to uncover the unscrupulous lives of the rich and starts following Do Hyun around.

>Heart to Heart
Cha Hong-Do suffers from social phobia and has a problem with severe blushing. She does have a strong sense of curiosity and learns from books and the internet. One day, her grandmother, Cha Hong-Do's only contact to the outside world, dies. Through an incident, she meets a psychiatrist, Ko Yi-Seok.

>Pinocchio
The idealistic Choi In Ha has her work cut out for her when she becomes a broadcast journalist, especially when she suffers from a condition known as “Pinocchio syndrome,” which makes her break out into hiccups whenever she tells a lie.

>SPY
Kim Jae Joong plays a genius analyst on North Korea information, who works for NIS and has genius brain. He has extraordinary analytically skills and could make quick and cool-headed decisions.

Is it true that there are companies in America that will receive uncensored JAV footage from companies in Japan and export it back in order to circumvent the censorship laws? I ask because I've heard of this but I don't really believe it considering that all torrent sites have to offer is censored JAVs. I apologize if this isn't appropriate to ask here but I figured you guys might know here.

And by export I mean take the uncensored product for sale in Japan.

Apart from Irie's awful acting I thought it was great. Kotoko was hilarious.

I tried to watch the first episode of s2 but fuck man, I just can't see any way that it could be as good now that they are married. I expect there would just be a lot of cheap drama that would ultimately devalue it too hard

I loved Itakiss, it was great. Furukawa Yuki's acting was pretty stiff but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and blame it on Naoki being a cold character.

I don't understand these Japanese actors. They are in everything. From biggest trash there is out there, to manga/anime adaptations, to huge blockbusters, to obscure, indie arthouse movies, to shitty Japanese doramas.

What a surprise. It’s almost nothing like what I’d expected from tvN - all style, no substance. Instead, we have something special here, something inexplicably moving. For me it’s the friendship between Ho Goo and Do Hee. The first sign that this wasn’t the My Sassy Girl drama version I’d expected was that Do Hee was okay and decent to Ho Goo from the start. Even though he does have the emotional maturity of a fourteen year old, even though she doesn’t tell him so many things, even though she’s prickly and hot tempered and haughty, she accepts his companionship and presence, and I think she appreciates his kindness and sincerity, even if she doesn’t really show it. Although Ho Goo’s the lead and narrator of the story, Do Hee is definitely the more interesting character. She’s haughty but she’s not mean; she’s prickly but she’s not bitchy. Instead, she’s just a girl who has a lot of drive and a lot of pride, who’s so fiercely independent, so competitive and focused on winning that she’s accepted a life without friends. She in no ways needs “saving”, but I think she needs someone to show her that she’s not alone in this world. Not necessarily as a romantic partner, more as a friend and family, which is why I’d totally be ok with them not ending up together and just becoming more like pseudo-family. After all, Ho Goo’s two BFFs are already part of his awesome family, I hope, no I need, Do Hee to become a part of this too. Her and her baby. Do Hee is a fighter to the end, but I think what she needs is a place like “home” that she can come back to if she doesn’t get the gold medal, a place where she can cry and eat ramen and be loved by people who don’t give a damn whether she gets that gold medal or not, because they know she’s a winner no matter what.

P.S. UEE is absolutely stunning here.
