Here’s a list of some of the dramas + movies I enjoyed:
No specific order…

Heroine Disqualified (Movie)

Good Morning Call (Drama)
Good Morning Call: Our Campus Days (Drama)
Tsumari Suki tte iitai n Dakedo (Drama)
Douse Mou Nigerarenai (Drama)
Kanojo wa Kirei datta (Drama - Japanese Ver. of, She Was Pretty)
Ashi Girl (Drama)

*If I can think of more I’ll add them to the thread. I never kept track of what I watched, but it’s a lot. lol


Douse Mou Nigerarenai is already available on viki :wink: But the others seem interesting. Maybe viki would add them.


Oh! I forgot to check that it was. Thank you for pointing it out. :smiley:


Tokyo Love Story (1991)


I haven’t been back to Viki in a month or so, but just now took a look at their lineup of J-dramas, filtered by “Newest” and… out of the first page of 20 titles, it looks like there is only one (1) that is not a Romantic Comedy and/or a BL thing (which since I am not of that orientation, is not interesting to me):

The one non-Rom-Com Japanese drama is “Tokyo Noodle Factory,” and… hey wait a minute, now that I think of it I actually watched that one. The fact that I didn’t even immediately remember it is a good indicator of its mediocrity. It was “ok” but shallow and soulless.

I’ve heard people make the excuse for Viki that “Rom-Coms are what most people want…” I disagree (my constant broken-record harping here about getting just a couple Medical, Detective, Mystery or Paranormal dramas is one indicator,) but adopting that “Top 40 AM Radio” criterion is a lazy cop-out anyway.

If everybody thought that way there would be no innovation, no adventure, no creativity, no individuation, no need for effort, no need for talent, no need for anything but “stick more of the same on there,” a.k.a. zero variety. IOW, a dull, drab, grey wall of mind-numbing sameness.

Which unfortunately is an accurate description of Viki’s current program lineup.

Maybe we should invent a contest: Betting on how many more months will go by before Viki presents a J-Drama that is some other genre than “Yet Another Tepid, Yawn-Inducing Romance.” Viki is dying of terminal cowardice, I think.


I’d love to watch Kekkon Dekinai Otoko, Bambino!, Iryu Team Medical Dragon, Yasha. It would be great to watch more varied J-doramas, not only those focused on teenage love…


I would love to watch many, many Japanese Detective/Doctor X/ kind of dramas/movies. They also have great ghost short stories that are amazing. But I would give anything to see the Documentaries they had in the past of different parts of Japan. They also had documentaries of their festivities and competition. I can’t believe they never brought those back. To think that the foundation of Rakuten started with a group of Japanese (2 female and I believe 4 male?) It makes no sense we don’t have any of that here at Rakuten Viki.


I really would like to watch the new version of Kurosagi
I’m a big fan of the original drama with Yamashita Tomohisa and Horikita Maki <3
I hope that the new one would also be a masterpiece!


Is the link the new version?

Let’s put in for it to come to Viki:



Yup, link is to the new version (I’m not good at posting links in discussion :sweat_smile:)
Thank you <3


Request done. Hope we get to see it here soon!

I noticed toilet scnes and humor in Chinese, Japanese and Korean dramas and movies. Which do I really want to watch? Well, can you help me list Japanese dramas and movies made from 2016 until now with a male protagonist sitting on the toilet (defecating, constipated, diarrhea etc.). E.g. Waikiki (2018). Ep. 16. Recent Chinese and Korean too. Interested in this cultural phenomenon. I want to observe this cinematografic phenomenon for my research as I find it to be quite frequent in these three productions. Maybe I am wrong.


Interesting, a starting point in the Japanese BL series
