So, typical school drama but with a teacher who can see ghosts! Teacher is played by Shingo Katori of SMAP (yes, I will not accept someone in a group called Sexy Zone, but I’ll accept SMAP, so sue me.) Initial Impression – Typical heartwarming school drama. (With ghosts.) I’ll watch again next week.
Okay, I don’t know what possessed me to watch this. I can’t take any guy who is a member of a group called Sexy Zone seriously, especially if half (or most? or all?) the guys aren’t even legal, but in my defense it was only 20 minutes? Initial Impression – Um. So. No. It isn’t […]
So Spring drama season has begun! First one out of the gate: Detarame Hero! Airs Thursday’s on NTV. Initial impression – Silly drama about freeter who ends up with candy that changes him into a superhero for 10 minutes! Will watch again – but I imagine it’ll get stupid quick. Super quick summary:
I’ve been trying to type up episode reviews for all the dramas I’m watching… It’s not happening.

Revisiting the JDrama Experiment – I’m hoping this year will be easier to keep up with since I can actually watch Japanese TV. Since the drama season has already started, I’ve had the chance to form some initial opinions on some of the shows, but that will come later. We’ll start with all the dramas that […]

I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to watch more Japanese dramas. Why? So I can practice my Japanese. I’m studying the language, but not really practicing. I usually have some Japanese music going on in the background, but that is the extent of my immersion in the language. I need to hear more Japanese to […]
