Nothing is as good as a good jdrama, so favorite jdramas are my favorite dramas of all.

I did a Top Jdramas list some time ago, with reasons and vids, but time to update. Why? Well, for one, current dramas number 3-5 weren't even on the list then, because I haven't seen them.

Same rules as earlier apply: it’s all about which are my favorite jdramas? And why? Here is the list of my favorite dozen, with reasons, vids, and pics. Note: no drama that I haven't finished completely is on this list, because who knows how it will turn out. Beautiful Life might end up on the list once I have enough courage to finish it, but am not done yet. Also, I have a 'favorite scene' from each drama, and I described it very briefly, if at all, to make it as unspoilery as possible.

If there are a lot of better things than waking up after an eight-hour sleep on the plane, munching on almond crush pocky and grape juice, and starting your rewatch of Pride, I have yet to experience them.

I always adore flying: both being on the plane and in the connecting terminals. It's a feeling that normal course of life has been indefinitely suspended and that you are free of any past, future, connections, obligations, or anything. It always puts me into a good mood.

Sadly, I have failed to discover any magazines of sexy Japanese celebrities (though I did discover a poster of Oguri Shun hawking green tea. Only my non-existent Japanese prevented me from being the weirdo who would ask the sales clerk whether I could buy it. It would gave given her something to talk over dinner: the freaky foreigner). Notwithstanding that, Narita remains my favorite airport. Not only did I have omerice for dinner (eeee!), they have a glorious invention known as 'day rooms': $19 for two hours and you get a teeny room with a bed and a shower and a wake-up call. My idea of heaven.

Anyway, am now in Perth, and preparing to spend the day sleeping, working my way through the remaining pockys, and watching Pride.

But most of the post will not be about that. Most of the post will be about my newly-finished darling, Mukodono. I inhaled episodes 5-12 on the flight, alternately laughing a bit too loudly (I tried to muffle it, I truly did) or getting ridiculously sobby. I wish to say it was jetlag or lack of sleep that turned me into such a bipolar mess, but that would be lying.

Thoughts on eps 5-12. Beware, it's a dissertation )

Phew, was this long or what?

And now I am off to watch Pride and fall in love all over again. There is nothing I don't love about that drama: Aki's first glimpse of Halu (herself a complete alien in the sports-pumped and/or fangirlish crowd), Halu's eyes when he sees Aki in a bar *drowns in them*, and going 'this is bad, she looks like someone from last century', the goalie's sweetness, the guy-bonding, the sheer absurdity of Halu staging to be beaten up just so he could get Aki's email making Aki laugh. Everything.

I know I owe everyone replies!

I've picked up watching Karei Naru Ichizoku, with Mr. Mousie. It's a drama I really really love, but what with this being a rare drama Mr. Mousie wants to watch (this and Hong Gil Dong are sum total) so we have to make time for both of us, and finding it so emotionally draining (yes, I've seen the ending), I sort of watch it on and off, in small dozes, like a really contolled drug. :)

I remain totally impressed by Kimura Takuya, who portrays a truly decent man at the end of his rope, and is so incredibly real, not a character but a complete person. My hatred for the Manpyo family grows leaps and bounds with each episode. Ugh. Monsters, most of them (what I want to say about Daisuke would probably be unfit for polite company). By this point, most of the revelations about family relationships are out (though of course, the final devastating one is for the very last ep...I saw that scene and...OK, I was a mess), and yeah...it all is a sheer descent. I think one of the things I find the most painful is how hard Teppen tries to have Daisuke express anything, something, that would indicate some glimmer of caring, some humanity. It's heart-breaking. Kimura has the most expressive face!

In news of more cheerful dramas, I continue madly in love with Mukodono.



I am four eps in, and Yu is just the most adorable jdrama male lead ever. In some ways, he shares some characteristics with children: excitement for seemingly mundane tasks, energy level in the morning (I'd kill him) and emotional openness. But he can also be grown-up when it counts, and the way he dealt with the little boy nephew of Sakura (how did they know my total thing for men interacting with children not their own) and with Satsuki, Sakura's career-oriented sister, made me melt.


A few caps and thoughts on my fave scenes from eps 3-4 )

I am going on a trip and taking about a dozen jdramas with me. Let's see how it goes :)

Episode 2 of Mukodono is even more awesome than ep 1. I don't remember the last time I watched a drama this sweet, funny, and pitch-perfect.

Also, it's great to have a drama hero who is nice. Yu is rather a big kid and a bit of a drama queen, but he is also incredibly giving and unselfish and caring. It's just...AWWWWWWW. And Sakura is just a darling: sweet but not a pushover at all, and very common-sense and steadying.

My favorite moment in the episode (which was full of them) was the make-shift wedding Sakura's family (love them!) threw for Yu and Sakura after the wedding in Hawaii was cancelled because Yu got sick, and the family was at first cranky about Yu in general but then saw how sweet about them he was being. It was so...AWESOME. When his hands shook so much when he was signing the form that he ruined it and they had to use another, I sort of died.

I have no caps because was watching a burned disc, but it bears repeating: Nagase Tomoya FTW. He looks like what fantasy of a pop idol should look like, someone out of a manga, almost: touseled bleached hair, cheekbones, elegant hands, and those pouty lips, and tall build (I mean, you could use him for a live action illustration of the hero of Sensual Phrase). And then as soon as the public is out, he transforms into this totally adorable, lovable, unselfconscious, complete and utter dork in private. Heee.

I know who Sakuraba Yuichiro reminds me of: a grown-up Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club. They are both good-hearted, ditzy blonds with family issues and lots of money.

SQUEE.

How adorable/ridiculous/sniffly was the scene with him having to show up late for dinner with Sakura's family? I was both laughing and sniffling at the same time. Also, Sakura is just so sane, which is just as well because Yuichiro is basically a ten-year-old in a grown-up's body and a total drama queen. I ship them so HARD.

Basically, the reason Mukodono works for me is because yes, the sheer premise of a supposedly sexy superstar who is in reality a goofy dork who lives with his wife's family is part hilariousness and part girl-wish-fulfillment, but it also makes me really invested in the characters, from Yuichiro and Sakura to Sakura's crazy family or even Yuichiro's manager. I really want things to work out for them. Also, Nagase Tomoya seems to be really tall. Isn't it against the rules for Johnnys?

(I want to squish them so hard!!!!!)

I have a confession of deep dark shame: I watched a TOKIO song on youtube and enjoyed it. They are still shinier than I prefer my musicians to be, but they actually play instruments *gasp* and can sing in tune! And they look like they hit puberty some time ago and actually had a meal or two since. Plus, I liked the song. I don’t think I will be seeking out more, am not really big into musical stuff, but…the deep dark shame will haunt me. Shame. Shaaaaaaame.

Or something.

Anyway, it’s always fun to discover a new actor ‘crush’. I will definitely be checking out Utahime (I’ve seen flisters love it but somehow missed that it’s set in 1950s! Yay!). I will also check out My Boss My Hero (summary sounds cracktastic) and Ikeburo West Gate Park (it has Yamapi in it too. Though he is what, 12 in it?)

But meanwhile, I am totally in love with Mukodono. I totally want to adopt Sakuraba Yuichiro: he is so adorably dorky and clueless. Heeee. The scene where he came in to ask for Sakura’s father’s permission to marry her made me LOL so hard I had trouble breathing.

I love Sakura too, who is sweet and down-to-earth and also dorky, and I loooove Sakura’s cooky family: her retired father and three older sisters, one of whom is a cooky mother of surly teen and is separated from her husband, one of whom is a geneticist with an allergy to men who had a son via artificial insemination, and one who is a workaholic employed by a radio station. I want to be in that family!

Caps from most awesome permission-seeking scene in drama history )

In news of dramas that are not good, but entertaining nontheless, has anybody watched Delicious Gakuin? I checked out about ten minutes of first ep before being sidetracked by the shiny of Mukodono.



Since nothing I could write would be crackier than the plot, I bring you the wiki summary: After being kidnapped and being taken to a cooking school told they must enroll, a group of boys deal with learning tons of recipes while also focusing on thoughts of love,* friends, and intentions.

Yes. Kidnapped. To be made into Chefs by force. Whaaaaa? Jdramas, never change.

* Seeing it’s an all-boys school, I can tell what kind of lurve it’s going to be ;)

Between the incredibly over-the-top acting, the skinny, girly-looking boys with mile high hair, and the psychotic plot, I can tell I will be very entertained.

I am in love!!!!!!!

OMG.

I have just started jdrama Mukodono (2001) starring Nagase Tomoya (who is he and what else has he been in. LOVE) and Takeuchi Yuko (who with this, Pride, and Bara No Na Hanaya is becoming my gsve jdrama actress ever).

Mukodono is the funniest cutest drama I've seen in a long time!

Nagase Tomoya plays Sakuraba Yuichiro, a super-popular, super-cool and super-sexy pop idol. Men get haircuts to look like him and women swoon by the dozen. But Yuichiro has a secret or two. Yuichiro is secretly married which could devastate his fans and end his career!!!!! (Which is, from my admittedly limited exposure to jpop is not a drama exaggeration). Not only that, but the real Yuichiro is hardly the icy-sexy image he projects to the public, but is instead a total dork, who even lives with his wife's family.

Cute shippy MV:



Some Caps from first 20 minutes of ep 1 )


So, what else has Nagase Tomoya has been in. And I see he is a member of TOKIO. Are they as eye-searing as the other Johnny's bands?

I am on a 30 hour flight this week (and 30 more hours on way back) so I am going to load up on jdramas because I am on a jdrama kick. I will take this, Long Love Letter, Million Stars, KKK 2003, Byakuyu, Pride (for rewatch), Love Story, Love 2000, Regatta, Dragonzakura and some other ones I need to think about (maybe Tattakoi for rewatch). I'd burn Iriyu Medical Dragon but I have no time. And probably 9 Ins 2 Outs for kdrama and My Lucky Star for twdrama if I feel like something else than a jdrama. Mmmm.

I am in love!!!!!!!

OMG.

I have just started jdrama Mukodono (2001) starring Nagase Tomoya (who is he and what else has he been in. LOVE) and Takeuchi Yuko (who with this, Pride, and Bara No Na Hanaya is becoming my gsve jdrama actress ever).

Mukodono is the funniest cutest drama I've seen in a long time!

Nagase Tomoya plays Sakuraba Yuichiro, a super-popular, super-cool and super-sexy pop idol. Men get haircuts to look like him and women swoon by the dozen. But Yuichiro has a secret or two. Yuichiro is secretly married which could devastate his fans and end his career!!!!! (Which is, from my admittedly limited exposure to jpop is not a drama exaggeration). Not only that, but the real Yuichiro is hardly the icy-sexy image he projects to the public, but is instead a total dork, who even lives with his wife's family.

Cute shippy MV:



Some Caps from first 20 minutes of ep 1 )


So, what else has Nagase Tomoya has been in. And I see he is a member of TOKIO. Are they as eye-searing as the other Johnny's bands?

I am on a 30 hour flight this week (and 30 more hours on way back) so I am going to load up on jdramas because I am on a jdrama kick. I will take this, Long Love Letter, Million Stars, KKK 2003, Byakuyu, Pride (for rewatch), Love Story, Love 2000, Regatta, Dragonzakura and some other ones I need to think about (maybe Tattakoi for rewatch). I'd burn Iriyu Medical Dragon but I have no time. And probably 9 Ins 2 Outs for kdrama and My Lucky Star for twdrama if I feel like something else than a jdrama. Mmmm.
