Morita Go [森田剛] Go Go Go Go...somehow i juz feel different towards him den other guys. I'm in love with him for 4 years and still counting. Kawaii even though he has a bad guy image. He is irreplaceble in my heart, unique in his own way. 'ore wa ore'! he is great in everything with a style of his own. Go is the reason im voting.
Oshio Manabu [押尾学] Oshio is a talented actor, he is also good with music. He can speak english and i think he is cool at it. Moreover, he is 1.86m tall. Glad to see that he is having the lead roles now!!
Gekka no Kishi [月下の棋士] Great from Go-kun ne...:) [Rating: 8/10] i bought the vcd becuz of Go, together with Ken's Neverland. i like this drama becuz Go was superb in portraying the young boy who came to challenge 'seiichi'.
this drama can get boring if you really know nothing about chess-playing, but Go makes the character so alive! for instance, he will wear his cap another way just before he started the game when you are actually not suppose to wear cap in the first place. this action makes one feel as if he is in for a 'chess battle'.
V6 Yasei no Hana is great as the theme song too, especially the solo 'bridge' part by Go-kun, mada make taku wa nai ~
Kindaichi Shonen no Jikembo 3 [金田一少年の事件簿 3] this is too wrong! [Rating: 1/10] Kindaichi 1 & 2 ended beautifully. With a movie filmed and a ending in the movie saying that Miyuki is transferring school, Hajime 'finally' heard her confession...it ended beautifully.
Everything is so nicely done until this 3rd series came. The girl who portrayed Miyuki in this series appeared in 1 of the case in Kindaichi 2. How can they use back the SAME GIRL to portray Miyuki this time??? hello, director!!! Even if they are going to get different cast this time, they should find a completely new girl which is not a HARD task at all since this girl is no great actress too.
Kenmochi is a COMPLETELY letdown! The original Kenmochi is superb! The comic Kenmochi is very tall, you can see that he is way much taller than Kindaichi, but this one is toooo short to be Kenmochi. And he has the look of a 'bad guy' where the original Kenmochi look more like a gentle uncle to Kindaichi. Miyuki is too short here too. In the comic, we can know that Miyuki is not the normal girl, she has her intelligence and sometimes show more bravery than Kindaichi. This Miyuki is too 'soft' image.
I watch 1~2 episode here and there because i did not look at the screen, but only listen to them talking. I get thrilled because it's the same dubbing for kindaichi 1 & 2 i watched thru' my country's channel. And ya, that's all.
Kindaichi shonen no jikenbo 1 [金田一少年の事件簿 1] 10? of course!! [Rating: 10/10] Kindaichi 1 & 2 are the BEST!!!
this is the drama that got me into jdorama watching. before this, i used to think that jdoramas are all very boring, draggy and slow! but now im a crazy j-fan!
i have the Kindaichi selection vcd, and i already 'ordered' 1 & 2 after i cant find them in my country. i am still watching the series until this day! i read the manga and collected them all, watch the cartoon, and the movie, i even know how to sing the theme song without lyrics. plus i even can 'act out' the story by script for some of the episodes.
so now, think of someone kindaichi-crazier than me! no one?!
Kindaichi shonen no jikenbo 2 [金田一少年の事件簿 2] Kindaichi 1 & 2 are the greatest! [Rating: 10/10] I voted 10 for 1, and i think 2 is equally superb!
Tsuyoshi is the perfect kindaichi for the drama! Rie is such a lovely miyuki! Even makabe, saki and kenmochi are so GREAT!!! no ONE can ever replace them.
'Kindaichi' is great because they never waste time filming unnecessary things, all you see is all important to solve the mystery! Kindaichi and Miyuki's bickering adds happiness against 'sad' story behind each murderer.
'Kenmochi' is like a 'dear uncle' instead of giving us the typical police officer image, which makes me feel that they have an enjoyable time working together, and has develop a kind of chemistry.
believe it or not, i cried for some of the episodes, when the criminal told his/her story. it's not the story that is touching, it's the little details they filmed... ...
Mona Lisa no hohoemi [モナリザの微笑] Great! [Rating: 9/10] Great! i have the vcd till today and i still play them. this drama makes me wants to work in auction so much!! Not that the plot about 'Mona Lisa' is so interesting, but rather the stories in between that captured my attention.
There are several touching scenes now and then. there are definitely funny scenes as i dun think anyone can really endure an all-serious drama 10 episodes long, or maybe you can? i dun know why some ppl juz dun like this drama. i watched the drama and love the songs so much that i went searching for the Original Sound Track. Thank God, I found it and bought it and i still play it until today.
the only 1 point gone is perhaps the reason 'Yosuke Eguchi' entered Weisz Tokyo. im not that into 'Mona Lisa'...though the art itself is amazing...and i always thought 'Weisz Tokyo' is quite a cool name???!!!
Oyaji~ [オヤジぃ] Great from Tamura and...Okada... [Rating: 9/10] honest speaking, i like this drama more than i expected.
i actually watch this becuz im a fan of V6 and yes, Okada is in! my sister even called the tv station in our country when the showing time suddenly changed, and on the 'supposed date' we turned on our tv and saw nothing of this drama.
I love tamura alot!!! i think he look great even in his 60s. i was shocked because i thought he is definitely younger. i gave 9 becuz i dun like ryoko hirosue's character and the way she acted in this drama. i juz feel that anyone can easily act that role, but she do have that 'arrogant face' when trying to argue with her family members.
Great drama that makes me wake up earlier on Sunday juz to watch!!!
