Japanese Dramas


Hmm I can’t remember if I’ve seen Nodame Cantabile I know I read the manga and I believe I watched the anime unless I’m getting it mixed up with another one!! :stuck_out_tongue: I’ll have to check the drama out!! :slight_smile:


you have to check it out, the anime was hilarious and my favorite so what I love about the drama is that they actually make sure that everything is the same, so Nodame is hilarious, there is thou more than one season which is perfect!


I’ll check it out or rewatch it if I already saw it!!! LOL I’ve seen sooooooooooooooo many dramas sometimes they blur together D:


How can i request for dramas or shows? I’m sorry i’m new to this site thank you :]


It’s funny, most of these I read as anime or watched the Manga… now I will get to rewatch them live action style.
I’ll be adding all of these to my drama list!

BTW Are you watching “Yamada and the 7 witches”?


:open_mouth: nuuuuuuuuuuu I didn’t know there was one!!! Another one added to the list!!:smiley:


There’s a new Japanese drama coming soon called Tomomi Itano’s Love Japan Ranking so I guess they’re still opening but it’s managed by viki.


Thanks for all the suggestions! :smiley: Looks like I’ll be busy for a while, haha.


I started watching Yamada-Kun To Nananin No Majo thanks for the suggestion, I like it!!


OH goodie! That makes my day! Do you normally like Mangas converted to drams?


I started with mangas, then animes, and then dramas, but if I like the manga normally I’ll search the anime as well, I like Japanese humor is very different from everywhere else, so I’ll read the manga but no necessarily was to have a drama version, but if it does I’ll watch it


Hey that “Yamada-Kun To Nananin No Majo” seems fun. Let’s add it to my to watch list :slight_smile:
I really should watch more Jdrama again but there is to much Kdrama I like.
