Long time since I finished a jdorama.
Just finished Rikuou. Good acting by the entire cast throughout, really bringing all the distinct characters to life. The story moved at a fast pace so it was never boring but I did not find it totally compelling. I was actually drawn more to the racing than all the twists and turns involved in shoe making. The atmosphere feels a bit manufactured at the start but I got used to it. Did not really identified with the traditional values so that probably accounted for my less than full endorsement. Still a very good drama. _________________

....Confidence Man.....Segadon...99.9(2)....Black Pean....Angels in White...Seigi No Se....Signal...Love Rerun..... and many others stilll waiting for English subtitled versions to be put online. My wife and I watch via four main websites (Fastdrama,GoGodramaonline,Gooddrama,Dramago)that often have the same downloads.....but we're at the mercy of people who do this on their own. Are there any other websites that have the whole series downloaded, subtitled and available to watch for free other than what I've mentioned. Or are there other options?? Thanks much.

Talking about Tomoko Yamaguchi.
She was wasted in Hello Harinezumi. The whole drama was meh.
And then I said:
Thanks for the heads up. I'll probably still watch it eventually. But now I know not to expect too much.
I did end up watching it. Like junny said, not that great. Tomoko Yamaguchi only got about 5 minutes in each episode until episode 10, she was in that one quite a bit.
Kyoko Fukuda is also in the cast. It used to be that here at JDorama, until Erika Sawajiri came along, she was just about everybody's favorite actress to dislike, but this one isn't her fault. You could have put Machiko Ono or Hikari Mitsushima in her role and it wouldn't have made any difference. Unless you're a hardcore Eita fan, can't really recommend this one.
