Mirai Koshi Meguru & Papaya Suzuki

February 10, 2008 Leave a comment

I have watched Papaya Suzuki in two dramas: Beauty or Beast and Hataraki Man and now I see him in a third.. which is Mirai Koshi Meguru. Anyhow.. Papaya Suzuki appears as a guest in the second episode… and his acting is pretty funny.. the actress playing his wife is familiar looking.

This dorama is unlike Mop Girl, but has its appeal. Fukada Kyoko acting is quite grown to me …. so I can probably enjoy watching more of this drama. Pretty cracky ne…?

Extraction of Sky High Opening..

February 5, 2008 Leave a comment

Seeing that I have no luck with finding Sky High’s opening theme.. and this is the Japanese drama and not the Disney movie… I decided to do a amateur cut.. so I extracted the audio from the episode clip and uploaded it.. so here is the opening Uzu by Apollo Project.

Mop Girl aka Moppu Gaaru – General Character Impressions

December 24, 2007 Leave a comment

If only the subbing for this would be more consistent like they did with Galileo. But I will wait patiently for the episodes.. because it can then drag me on to watch more dramas as I do, just as I do for One Piece and other anime series.

I like the messages and acting in this one, although there are parts where I kinda recoil from, such as whatever is Momoko’s fascination with buffed up chests. I hope they explain it later. I have never seen Kitagawa Keiko in any other drama, although I do have her one other drama.. Sailor Moon.. if only I can pull myself away and watch the damn thing.. without shuddering then I would.

I’ve never found time travel dramas as interesting, but with Galileo ending soon in being subbed, I need to find something to keep me occupied.

Yama Onna Kabe Onna

December 6, 2007 Leave a comment

Just finished watching this drama… I was actually very surprised it went to 12 episodes.. it is an okay drama.. with the theme of a big breast woman against a thin chest woman. This was the first drama I can say that I ever heard of Japanese having different dialects. I guess you learn something new every time you watch something. What made me continue to watch this story was because of Ito Misaki and Oikawa Mitsuhiro.

Oh not them as a couple.. but their acting that is.. I haven’t seen Ito Misaki since Maison Ikkoku SP and I wanted to see more of her roles other than Densha Otoko. Her being a strong and determine woman is pretty refreshing.

Now why would I mention Oikawa Mitsuhiro? I honestly don’t know.. somehow his acting and maybe looks appeal.. I’ve seen him in about 3-4 other dramas and so far.. he always seems to be the supporting and never the main. I mean Oyaji, maybe he’s the secondary lead… but somehow his looks and styles seems to be interesting to watch.

Galileo – Impressions of guests stars – Part 2

December 6, 2007 Leave a comment

I saw it.. well this is going to be a short entry.. since I only watched the 7th episode of Galileo.. but this episode was so surprising that my mouth dropped opened. So far there’s no sparks other than the normal between the two leads.. although I know the female is feeling something for the professor. It was very apparent in the boxing gym…

Seeing Fukada Kyoko’s character in this episode was such a direct contrast to the other two dramas I watched her in.. where she acted the ditz. Other than the fact that Galileo is much more serious than the other dramas. I didn’t realized she could pull the money grubbing fortune hunter that well.. in essence she was the villian for this episode.. which could only reflect my shock.

Next episode, the guest star would be Shaku Yumiko, whom I really like in Himitsu no Hanazono. Wonder how her role would be like, would it be really surprising or something else entirely. Also I saw her in a raw episode of Hataraki Man and I didn’t even recognize her, she was a guest in episode 2, and she cut her hair to a pixie cut. So until I saw the previews in Galileo and heard the tone of voice.. did I actually recognize Sahku Yumiko… nice..

Galileo – Impressions of guests stars

December 1, 2007 Leave a comment

This is such a good series…. the episodes are interesting.. on air chemistry is good between the two leads… and many many celebrity guests… well celebrity for me.. since there is a lot of other dramas that they’ve done that I have seen them in. I truly am tempted to move this up the ranks as a series I really like, but I can’t other than labeling it as a current series I really like since I don’t know the conclusion of this series yet.

I decided to write a bit on guest stars that I know and my impressions of their roles.

Katori Shingo – Never thought I’ll see him in a villain role, while I know he likes to stand out and take on different kinds of roles… this was a definite surprise for me to see him in such.

Horikita Maki – I was kinda annoyed by the one dimensional depth of her character- she didn’t have much lines to begin with, but then I believe from seeing her in Nobuto wo Produce and Deru Toko Demasho! I believed I expected more.

There are other guest characters that I have seen before, however I can’t really say my knowledge of them can be anything but just from the one or two times I have seen them in stuff. I do know that I am very excited to see Fukada Kyoko in the next episode..

Reminds me that I really want to finish watching Yama Onna Kabe Onna. Hmm.. On a side note I want to see Orange Days with Shibasaki Kou in it soon…. I can’t help but compare her with that initial role I saw her in… hmm… she’s getting older that’s for sure..

Sawajiri Erika- Destination Nowhere PV

November 28, 2007 Leave a comment

This is the music video/promotional video for Mop Girl’s OP.. I am also watching this drama at this time.. and I happened to think the opening sounded good. So I was pretty surprised to see that Sawajiri Erika singing the theme…… I guess I should have guessed it was her. Well I didn’t researched into this drama as much as I did for Galileo.. but still I figure this drama has its good moments. I am not outright quitting this show as I think I did with Joshi Deka.
