Dramas on My Mind: Fall 2012 Edition

Now that the Olympics are over, who’s excited for the next season of dramas? I don’t know about you but nothing really made me swoon this past summer (though this might change once I start watching Answer Me 1997 and Arang proper.) However the fall season is looking really promising (for J-dramas, at least.) Question is: Will they live up to their potential?

This season, I am looking forward to:

The last time I did one of these things, all my predictions backfired on me and I ended up being underwhelmed by the dramas I thought I’d love and loving those I thought I’d find stupid as hell. (I’m not sure I want to know what this says about me -.-;) Hopefully reality won’t be too cruel to my expectations this time round. (more…)

5 dramas/movies I would never consider watching if not for Tumblr

I’m not sure which is more hypnotic: a) his body or b) watching him feel himself up ad infinitum.

And thanks to E.G’s hilarious review of Ashita no Joe, I can no longer look at Yamapi without taking in his, um, entire package…XD Damn, is it just the camera angle or is Pi-chan happy to be in a locker room full of hot, sweaty guys?

Meet my new research subject…

I didn’t think much of Kiritani Kenta when I first saw him in JIN. In my mind, he was that bug-eyed dork with a scalpel (and let me assure you that I say this with the greatest affection.)

So even though Saburi-kun grew on me over the course of 21 episodes, I was never moved to devote 85 percent of my hard disk space to the actor…

…until I had my long overdue date with Crows Zero last weekend.

Okay, maybe 85 percent is an exaggeration but the moment I saw him strut into view in that white shirt and black slacks combo, it was like discovering Tamaki Hiroshi in Nodame Cantabile all over again.

Except that with Kenta you just know he isn’t going to go on some fool diet and starve himself into a coma any time soon. Not to mention, he’s got to be the most adorkable ham to hit the variety show circuit ever.
