Japanese Dramas


I agree. I also would love to see older dramas on here, pre drama wave 2003. There is am amazing older J-Drama called “Heaven’s Coins” it has two seasons. I watch it on


Oh, I want to do a J-drama list :3 But most of the ones I’ve seen and liked have already been mentioned :<

Whatever XD
Bloody Monday, BOSS, Gokusen, Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango, Hanawake no Yon Shimai (The Hanawa Sisters), Hotaru no Hikari, Kimi wa Petto, Kurosagi, Liar Game, Nodame Cantabile ^^, Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Perfect Girl Evolution), Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend)

But then I also have an ongoing list of things still to watch.
So many dramas to watch, so little time. Why.


The Japanese Hana Kimi must have been really good… everyone puts it on their lists. Maybe I’ll give it a shot, the Korean version was so Awful was prepared to write off the J version as well.


Ha, well I wouldn’t call it life changing or anything, but I’d say it’s probably the best (better?) of the Hana Kimi drama adaptations out there.


Haha I don’t need life changing… just good escapism :slight_smile:


Hana Kimi is just hilarious, I watch it like twice already, you should give it a try for sure


If you watch Koizora,just make sure to have a box of tissues…I cried and cried…
I would love it if viki had more j-drama…maybe one day. :slight_smile:


I know right, I saw it long ago, and is tissue worth, I love it, but I think I’ll re watch it again


I just started watching Nodame Cantabile tonight! Starting out strong!

Thanks for that hon! :slight_smile:


I only recently discovered this site while searching for sites streaming Japanese drama in the UK, so I am keen to see more of them here. It seems really difficult to find any sites licensed to stream Japanese drama in the UK. I only know Crunchyroll, but they only have a few (currently watching Random Hero).

Anyone upgrade to Viki Pass Plus yet?
