I’ve noticed that most my recent blogs have been very “Japan” oriented! Whether it’s about my trip there, music,or now drama.. haha o well, here goess!
I didn’t end up watching any jdoramas that came out in Winter 2008 beyond 1-3 episodes because nothing really kept my attention. This Spring season though, seems full of a bunch of worth-watching jdoramas! I plan to check out Zettai Kareshi, Gokusen 3, Hokaben, ROOKIES, and Last Friends.
I’ve watched episode 1 of Last Friends and I loved it (you can find SOFT SUBS by clicking >HERE<) They’re all amazing actors/actresses and the story seems really well done so far. Everything about this drama has me hooked, just like my love for Tantei Gakuen Q. The opening song “Prisoner of Love” by Utada Hikaru fits PERFECTLY. Even the video for the opening caught my attention, which is rare since I always skip over them (the only exceptions now are this and the opening for Tantei Gakuen Q: check out my past blog for details and the video by clicking >here<).
If you have seen the jdorama Kurosagi, this might be of interests to you!
Kurosagi is a drama about a swindler who swindles other swindlers (haha thats a mouth full). Basically, it has a Robin Hood kind of premise to it. I personally really enjoyed it, so I’m definitely looking forward for the movie to come out (March 8, 2008). Below is the movie-music video (with subs); it is the main song for the Kurosagi movie and is also sung by NEWS, which Yamashita Tomohisa, who plays the main character in the movie/drama is in. Enjoy!
Here is a link to the video to the trailer for the Kurosagi movie:
For other crime investigation dramas, I HIGHLY recommend Tantei Gakuen Q (Detective School Q). I just finished watching this drama about a week ago and it is definitely one of my favorites (better than Kurosagi!). Thanks didi for the recommendation! You can watch the drama by clicking >Here<!
The video below is the opening to Tantei Gakuen Q. Usually, I fast forward through opening and closing of any anime/drama but the opening and song were just too good. The song is done by a band called FLOW and the title is Answer. If you like the song, click >Here< for the actual full length music video.
Well..since I’ve already linked everything I might as well continue. The ending song for Tantei Gakuen was also a good listen, so heres there music video for it!
Band name: The Brilliant Green, song: Stand by me
