  ■ Sakurai Sho to be at New York Comic Con with Miike Takeshi for Yatterman's world premiere 12

  ■ Takki's "Ai.Kakumei" Single numbers
    ▪ "...he managed to get number one..."
    ▪ Again, the news source allows Peyton to tangent and babble about Koichi. *glee~*
    ▪ "...they come up behind me and try to solicit me to do an AV movie..." XDDD
    ▪ "I LOVE YOU, TAKKI! GOOD LUCK!" "Like he's listening to the podcast right now."

  ■ Code Blue Special ratings
    ▪ Code Blue is one of Peyton's favorite dramas, and so she babbles. ;P

  ■ Yamapi on Vanilla Kibun, January 10th
    ▪ We discuss fandom's interesting reaction to one very specific moment in the overall interview.
    ▪ YamaPi kind of goes existential on us. :OO
    ▪ Deconstructing YamaPi's comments grammatically. To pronoun, or not to pronoun?
    ▪ We speculate on YamaPi's mental state during this interview.
    ▪ "Emo!YamaPi, we love you. You probably just went and ate some Kobe beef afterward to make yourself happy."

DRAMA TALK (32:28)
  ■ Yamada Taro Monogatari 8-10
    ▪ "...also has something to do with Mimura stimulating things in Taro..."
    ▪ "They're poor as shit, but they're happy. That's what the whole drama's about."
    ▪ "Oh, you two guys. I can believe you just did air guitar for an opening. That's just weird."
    ▪ "It literally is a drama written for Arashi."
    ▪ The history of Arashi and their epic air guitar battle. XD
    ▪ "...we're analyzing their performance." "Yes, 'cause air guitar is such an intricate sport."
    ▪ Ohno is a gay captain? We certainly didn't know that. ;P
    ▪ "You just said 'little butt'." "I said 'little bud'. You're disgusting."
    ▪ "You know what I love about that? Sho can just not smile and it's acting." XDD
    ▪ "...the drama would have HAD substance if that had happened."
    ▪ THE DRAMA ACTUALLY HAS A POINT! \:D/ The tenants of Japanese philosophy.
    ▪ Yamada Taro Monogatari messes with traditional Hollywood storyline conventions; maybe that's why we don't jive with it.
    ▪ "...because she's totally S like that. She likes to watch people be like strangely M."
    ▪ Next, we change gears and genres totally with the first four episodes of Tatta Hitotsu no Koi with Kamenashi Kazuya and Tanaka Koki! :)

Hi! :D

In response to last week: epic fail on my part for not knowing Koyama was afraid of heights. D: but he can cling to me if he's afraid if he wants. I won't mind. And my SN is Synaka. :D Or you can call me Rachael if you want. :3

Johnny Drama wise, I'm looking forward to Voice, RESCUE, and Kami no Shizuku. More so Voice than anything else. I love Toma and Eita and them in a drama together is just awesome. <3 I'm also waiting for subs of the Code Blue special.

Non-Johnny's wise, I think I'm going to check out Mei-chan no Shitsuji. It looks interesting, plus Mizushima Hiro is in it. :DD
01 21 09 (UTC)
You guys are going to be watching "Tatta Hitotsu no Koi"?



ginzarhapsody already knows this, BUT I LOVE THIS DRAMA LIKE FIRE. I have written far too many pages of meta and fic and GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE about this drama and I hope you know I'm awaiting your discussion with bated breath.
01 21 09 (UTC)
Yay new episode~ Um I'm glad Yamada Taro Monogatari is finally done with, and the next drama you're doing I've never seen before so I'm excited to watch it and yes! Can't wait till the next episode. :D
01 21 09 (UTC)
▪ "They're poor as shit, but their happy. That's what the whole drama's about."


And otsukare for this week, too :)

Does Winter mean the season that's just started (I thought Winter was the season that just finished!)
Mei-chan no Shitsuji is BRILLIANT (so far) Eikura Nana looks gorgeous in her short hair and is kick-ass as the female lead in general (AND ISNT ANNOYING LIKE SO MANY FEMALE DRAMA LEADS) I actually ended up crying in the first episode. Oh, and Sato Takeru is adorable in it (from Bloody Monday)

Voice is pretty damn good, too, from what I've seen from the first ep. It's a bit more crime solving rather than strictly medical (which was what I first expected). The actual episodes story was pretty interesting and WHO CAN FORGET EITA AND TOMA ARE IN THIS

Ermmm other than that QED isn't worth watching (IMO anyway), and I'm still waiting for Love Shuffle to come out with softsubs.

Oh, and Uta no Onii-san was ADORABLE *__* I'm not sure what to say about this yet-- it didn't really grab my attention like the first two did, but it definately was enjoyable to watch :)
01 22 09 (UTC)
nope, he won't. ;) I meant "they are poor as shit...". :D so i used the right contraction. :Dv

and yes, the winter season is the season that just started. though the last season started in october, it is considered autumn. :)
01 22 09 (UTC)
I'm so excited that you are watching Tatta Hitotsu no Koi. I really liked it my first time through.

I plan on watching four dramas (Rescue, Kami no Shizuku, Voice and Uta no Oniisan) this winter season. The ones I am *excited* about are Voice and Uta no Oniisan. I adore Toma and Eita like woah, so this is a fangirly dream come true. The drama looks promising, as the very first episode had me in tears. I also watched Maou so I'm really looking forward to seeing Onho in such a different role. As for the other two, maybe I'll be more excited for them after I see the first episode of each...
01 22 09 (UTC)
Okay, just commenting -- but actually it's been CONFIRMED that Sho's going to be there (AND -- rumor has it -- signing autographs!!).

Check out the website: http://www.nycomiccon.com/app/homepage.cfm?appname=100453&moduleID=2920#Sho_Sakurai
01 22 09 (UTC)
Yes! It was actually confirmed after we recorded, so we were right... at the time? lol BUT OMG, THAT IS STILL THE BEST NEWS I'VE READ. *_________*
01 22 09 (UTC)
YES, as I was listening to the podcast I was like, "HE *IS* GOING TO BE THERE!! HE *IS*, HE *IS*!"

I wish I were going, but have fun, report back, and tell him Liz said hi! ;) (if u can. But there are so many people who want you to say hi I'm pretty sure! ;) , haha).

DUDE!! you should go as PRESS!! cuz you have a podcast!! So you'd get access to taking pictures and stuff!!

(something I *wish* I did when MastuJun came to USC. I almost did. But then didn't.). Well, if it is possible. But it might be late, since for cons to go as Press it takes registration months ahead of time. Then again, if it's for Yatterman, I don't know. :\

Crazy Liz. Ignore my commenting. Sorry.
01 22 09 (UTC)
I'm excited that you guys are discussing/watching Tatta Hitotsu no Koi next. I just watched it the other week after my room mate discovered it and fell in love with it. I actually watched the whole thing in one night due to crazy college schedules.

My room mate absolutely loves it (she probably just loves Kame's character) and I was really into it until the last couple episodes.

I'm looking forward towards your discussion on it though.

And since I'm already commenting, I thought I'd answer the question:
As a Toma fan, I looked forward to VOICE the most. Though after watching the first episode, I think I'm enjoying Eita's role just as much.
I'm also looking forward to RESCUE and Kami no Shizuku. Non-Johnny's wise, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Mei-chan no Shitsuji I'll probably end up finishing that series instead of starting Uta no Oniisan.
01 22 09 (UTC)
I'm still waiting to listen to the stream, but I read the summary, and just have to say that "Tatta Hitotsu no Koi" is a good drama for falling in love with Kame, lol:P
But, I really can't say anything else, because the only other thing I've watched him in was Nobuta.

To answer the question: I'm looking forward to "Voice," "Mei-chan's Butler," "Kiina," "Love Shuffle," "Rescue," "Triangle," and "Zeni Geba."
01 22 09 (UTC)
Just wanted to let you know that the streaming is now up! :DDDD
01 22 09 (UTC)
Yay-I'm glad I found this podcast; very entertaining:)
I researched Meiji at one point too, because I wanted to know how far Koyama's campus was from Shige's, but I still don't know that answer, lol:P
But Inoo is adorable:)

Also for the drama question,I do admit that I'm watching most shows, because of the cast members. Toma and Eita for "Voice," Hiro and Takeru in "Mei-chan's Butler," Hiraoka Yuta in "Kiina," Nakamaru and Massu in "Rescue," and Matsuyama Kenichi for "Zeni Geba."

Yea sorry-that's long winded. Um, of course "Voice" is extremely philosophical in dealing with forensics and death, so that's what draws me:)
01 22 09 (UTC)
Sho gives me yet another reason to wish that I lived in friggin NY D:

I fell asleep on the first ep of Tatta Hitotsu no Koi, and never watched it again...But I might just watch it since it's so amazing and what not :\

What new dramas for the winter season you interested in watching (JE dramas or otherwise)?
The main dramas that I'm most definitely looking forward to are "Love Shuffle", "Zeni Geba", and "Uta no Oniisan".
"Love Shuffle" because I love romantic comedy dramas, Tamaki Hiroshi & Karina ♥, DAIGO and those glasses, and the fact that 'Fantasy' by Earth, Wind and Fire is the theme (love that song)!!!
"Zeni Geba" because I loooooove Matsuyama Kenichi's acting and I'm really happy he's in a drama, since the last one he did was "Sexy Voice and Robo" T.T
"Uta no Oniisan"...Because of Ohno and the hilarious plot, of course :D
01 22 09 (UTC)

Your podcast is something I look forward to so much every week. It makes me smile :)

I'm probably going to see Sho too. I hope I can see him. I'm going to comic con with a bunch of people I've never met or talked to before. I hope one of them is a Sho fan because I really want to see him. But also I'm only going because my neighbors invited me to go with their students and I don't know if we'll have to leave at a certain time or if we'll have to stay as a group(I hope not) and blah blah blah. I do hope I can see the movie though.

Anyway, I wanted to answer the question as to which dramas I am interested in watching this winter season.
I can't wait to see RESCUE. Honestly though...it's only because Massu is in it. I think if there weren't any people in there that I'm not really interested in I wouldn't watch. A drama about firefighters isn't something that I find all too interesting. Hopefully this will change my mind.
I remember hearing about a drama called Ghost Friends, but I think that comes out in the spring, but I don't remember. So yeah, I think RESCUE is the only one as of right now.

Have a super day.
01 23 09 (UTC)
first time commenting~ i've been listening to you guys since the beginning though. you're awesome. ♥

as for the question: honestly, uta no oniisan. because sometimes you just can't wait all the way till a concert to see an arashi member in a ridiculous outfit. D:
01 24 09 (UTC)
I came across your podcast just a weeks ago,so I'm trying to catch up. I've got a question about the episode 38, Jennie seems pretty sure that Uchi wouldn't return to NEWS. Instead, she thinks he will probably come back to kanjani 8. She explained why it's kanjani 8 but she didn't say the reason why it couldn't be NEWS. I know it's just her opinion but I still wanna know why, 'cuz I really wish he would return to NEWS.

As to your question "What new dramas for the winter season you interested in watching (JE dramas or otherwise)?"
Since you mentioned a lot of Kami no Shizuka in recently episodes, so I decided to watch it yesterday. I finished the first two episodes and I suddenly found Kame so adorable. Honestly, I hated him before. Because I watched a dvd clip which I don't remember if it's Dream Boy or KAT-TUN's Pirate Concert. There was a scene of Kame dancing like a butterfly while dressing himself as a girl, which really disgusted me. (Sorry,I'm not meant to insult those who like him. )

Besides, I watched the first episode of Triangle and Zeni Geba.
I think I will continue on these three dramas.

Last thing I wanna say is that I really appreciate you guys doing a podcast about JE boys and jdramas.
01 24 09 (UTC)
lol so i came back to this post to confirm we were indeed watching the first four eps, not the first three for tomorrow, and at first glance, i somehow managed to read the drama title as tatta hitotsu no koki. *g*
01 26 09 (UTC)

oh may gawd. you've just completely altered the way I feel when I say or see the title now. XDD

Tatta Hitotsu no Koki !!! :))

Everyone else should totally call it that. even as like, a nickname or something.

01 25 09 (UTC)
I fail at commenting. Sorry guys. I'm glad you've chosen Tatta Hitotsu no Koi as your next drama, because it needs more love. It was my favorite drama that season (alongside Nodame Cantabile), but every drama is pretty good if it's aired in the same season as Teppan Shoujo Akane. >__<

What new dramas for the winter season you interested in watching (JE dramas or otherwise)?
I was really looking forward to Uta no Onii-san with Ohno. I was even happier when the full cast was announced. I love GIRL NEXT DOOR's Chisa. But a comedy drama with Ohno just has to be awesome (and it is). XD I'm also looking forward to Love Shuffle, because of the awesome cast. But well, I'll probably end up watching all drama's this season anyway. (like always) XD
01 25 09 (UTC)
Ah, I love Tatta Hitotsu no Koi! It was my second jdrama and is still a favorite. :) I actually talked with someone about it the other day. It went something like:

Person: The poor guy is really skinny. It must be because he's always running.
Me: He's trying to run from the angst.
Person: He should still take a bus. Oh, wait - is he too poor for that?
Me: I don't know. But, it would be faster to run from the angst if he took a bus.

As for dramas: I tried Voice, but didn't like it. So I'm going to watch:Love Shuffle, Uta no Onii-san, Kami no Shizuku, Zeni Geba, and Mei-chan no Shitsuji. I may also check out Triangle. So far my favorites are Mei-chan and Zeni Geba, but I think I will really like Kami no Shizuku, when the subs come out.
01 26 09 (UTC)
semi-new listener. Just wanted to say, I've been going back, listening to some of your older stuff. Just wanted to say, I think it's funny how each time you guys predict that Arashi ISN'T going to do the opening song (in Ryusei no Kizuna, you thought it'd be the song by David Bowie in the CM, and for Uta no Oniisa, you thought it'd be an old-school song), they did (RnK = Beautiful Days, and Uta no Oniisan = Cloudy, then Clear)! XD

I know hindsight is 20-20 vision, but I just think that's hilarious! Anyway, hope you aren't offended by my observation. I just thought I'd mention it. :)

Take care!

Crazy Arashi Fangirl
01 26 09 (UTC)
I think I can speak for the other ladies when I say we are hardly offended and are even amused by your observation ourselves! We're hoping our magic works on other groups as well. That is to say, NEWS WILL NEVER EVER DO A DRAMA THEME SONG. XD
01 26 09 (UTC)
lol, somehow I did appreciate you guys doing yamada tarou :)) and the timing was perfect too ~ ! I just finished it when you guys were about to start.

Tatta Hitotsu no Koi. mmm. yea. really looking forward to what you'll guys will share about this. I've seen it and .. mmm.. hahaha. I guess it was also like Yamada Tarou for me .. I end up asking myself why I watch it in the first place . XD But I did finish it.

As for the question :

This is a really really awesome season !!!
I started getting excited as early as November already for this year's dramas :D I've seen the first episodes of Uta no oniisan, Voice and Mei-chan no shitsuji. All three are really great :D Although I must say that I'm particularly excited for Mei-chan no shitsuji *gasp*not a je drama* lol. But the plot's really fun that's why. And yes. Hiro and Takeru. Need I say more ? LOL.

Of course, the two awesome awesome KAT-TUN dramas too !
I haven't seen any of both yet, XD Since I'm the type who waits patiently for the PV to be released, not listening to any mp3 leaks, as well as the opening songs of the dramas. XD

Now, I get really excited every week just waiting for these dramas ! :))
