Bloody Monday Season 2

Another new Japanese drama that is set to air soon, on 23 January 2010, Saturdays at 8 pm on TBS.


The drama stars Miura Haruma and Sato Takeru.

This is a remake of the manga by the same name, although I think the second season moves away from the original story. The manga can be read at Onemanga.

The second season is quite similar to the first season, where Tokyo is faces with something deadly and can wipe out the entire city. Where the first season dealt with a deadly Russian weapons-grade virus, and the new season is set two years later when an aircraft bearing a new kind of nuclear weapon threatens Tokyo. Miura plays the role of a genius hacker and Sato is his best friend.

I think the terrorist/bad guys in the second season are the same as in the first season. But they have also added new cast members to their ensemble.

I am actually looking forward to this drama as I had already watched the first season and got really addicted to it – I was watching the first season as I was preparing for my Law Year 1 Finals – but, I will have to constrain myself and not overdo it. So I will only be able to watch when I have the time. Haiz~

Anyways, the drama summary, here.

And a trailer.

To watch with subtitles, at Mysoju, Season 1 and the coming soon Season 2. And on Dramacrazy.

Something extra to read regarding the drama, here.

ps> i realised that i am now hooked unto japanese dramas, instead of korean or taiwanese… as can be seen from my previous posts… hmm… i wonder why…

Perfect Girl Evolution

A new Japanese drama that will air starting TODAY!

On Friday at 10 pm, and the broadcast network is TBS.

Also known as Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge or ヤマトナデシコ七変化.

It stars Kamenashi Kazuya, from Gokusen Season 2, and Oomasa Aya, from Mei-chan no Shitsuji amd others as well.

It is a remake of a manga by the same name, you can read the manga at Onemanga.

I started reading the manga a few days ago after finding out about this drama and it is hilarious.

The story revolves around 4 boys and a girl. The girl is the 4 boys’ landlady’s niece, and to be able to get free rent, they must turn the girl into a lady – a real japanese lady. The girl is a horror loving girl, preferring the dark and weird things. The boys are all gorgeous and are weird special in their own way.  And so the story tells of how the boys are determined to change the girl while the girl is set on not changing.


The summary, here.

And the trailers available.

And the interview with the cast, subbed.

Episodes should be available in Mysoju soon, but I am not sure about Dramacrazy, will keep this updated. And on Dramacrazy and Vikii.

I am not sure if I will be going after this drama, maybe only when I have the time because of assignments and such. But I hope I will be able to update more on this. Hehe~

Enjoy~

Tokyo Dogs end

Wow~

I am sorry I have not been updating on this. But I must say that I have finished this drama and I absolutely love it. A great combination of Oguri Shun and Mizushima Hiro.

Throughout the drama, you will see both of them banter back and forth, as usual, especially during the times when it is serious. Haha~

Oh~ And Marou (Hiro’s) and Yuki found out that the woman that kept calling Sou (Shun’s) was her mother in episode 10. They followed him when he decided to leave without him. It was so hilarious as Sou kept trying to get them to get out but his mom would have none of it. ‘Sou-chan Sou-chan’ Sou’s nickname by his mom, which Marou kept pestering him with after finding out.

And it ended on a happy note as Sou finally caught the killer who killed his dad, who happened to be Yuki’s ex-lover before she lost her memories. And Sou got reinstated into the New York Police Department for his performance in this case. Marou and Yuki went with him to the airport to send him off and Marou wanted an emotional parting and all that, and Sou declined it, obviously. As Sou walked away, Marou asked Yuki if this was how she wanted it to end, she shook her head and then ran towards Sou. As she hugged him from behind, Sou flipped her forward and was going to use his feet to stomp her when he realised who it was. LOL~ It was so funny. And Yuki: ‘Ahh~ He flipped me over again.’ And Marou ran towards them and said: ‘This was not how it was suppose to end. Let’s do it again.’ Haha~ I was laughing my ass off at this. If you remembered, it happened in one of the earlier episodes when Sou was teachin Yuki how to react if she got attacked or something. Back to the point, as Sou was finally going to leave, his hand pulling his luggage, he realised that it was gone, as someone had stolen it while he was arguing with Marou and Yuki. And as his style, pulled out his gun and fired a shot, causing the airport to be in chaos, as he and Marou ran after the thief.

LOL~ Go watch it if you must. I think they are considering either a second season or a movie to end it properly, or something like that.

Anyways…


Tokyo DOGS episode 2 and 3…

ahh… i am going crazy… so very good man…

i just love Oguri Shun… and with Mizushima Hiro… better… although i still love Oguri more… hahaha…

anyways…

the story continues as the two of them work at protecting the girl while also allowing her to lead a normal life as much as possible… as it will help with her memory… she also starts work at a small cafe or restaurant with another police on the job… but one of the waiter there is a bad guy that she is suppose to avoid… he is trying to get close to her to see that her amnesia is real and that she is no closer to the truth… ah… the girl’s older sister visited her and she regained a bit of her memory during the few days that her sister is with her…

ah… whenever Sou visits his family… there is sure to be some funny scenes and conversations… he went back for dinner and his sister’s boyfriend was there too…

Sou: So why is he (sis’s boyfriend) here again/everyday?

Sis: He likes to drink (dunno what) soup…

Boyfriend: Hi aniki (older brother)

Sou: That’s why I’m not your brother… But that does not mean he has to come everyday…

Boyfriend: Hey. Seconds…

Sou: (to himself) Hey… Seconds… What…

hahaha… so damn funny man… loving the drama every minute…

ahh… the two of them also solve other cases at the same time… and in episode 3… Marou’s friend/younger brother… got into some trouble and they were helping him…

Marou was with his senpai (senior) at the cafe and he got a call asking him to go some place to meet with the friend/younger brother… who is a suspect for murder… they left and got into a fight with several masked people… the two of them were losing the fight when suddenly Sou appeared…

The following conversation happened while they were fighting the masked people…

Marou: You… Why…???

Sou: I told Horikawa (the police at the cafe who is looking after the girl) to call me if you went off alone…

Marou: How did you find this place?

Sou: You drive a police car… It comes equipped with a GPS… Get it together…

Marou: Its none of your business… I’ll prove his innocence myself…

Sou: So that little brother of yours… Where is he??

Marou: That…

Sou: Didn’t this happen because you believed in him? Stupid as a monkey…

Marou: Monkeys are pretty smart animals…

Sou: Gibbon monkeys are cute but they aren’t smart…

Marou: And what about the orangutans that can count?

Sou: What about elephants that can draw with their trunks?

Marou: An elephant drawing? What does an elephant know to draw?

Sou: (with a really straight face) Self portrait…

Marou: Just because its an elephant…???

note – elephant and self portrait in Japanese sounds similar…

when they got to the monkeys topic… the masked people were already on the gound and they were like staring at Sou and Marou as they were arguing on the intelligence of monkeys…

LOL LOL LOL… so damn funny…

have to watch for yourself… very very very good…

and the last part… when they were staking… waiting for the real murderer… Sou’s mother called…

Sou: I’ll call you back…

Mother: I’ll be very fast… What colour do you like? Yellow or red?

Sou: Any…

Mother: I’m looking at pajamas and wondering which do you like…

Sou: I’ll wear any…

Mother: But if you dont like, you will not wear…

Sou: (I can’t remember what he said… but maybe either one colour or something)

Then Sou hanged up…

Marou: Who is that??? Calling you all the time…

Sou: You don’t need to know…

haha…

i need to stop… LOL…

go watch… at mysoju…

it is waiting for you…

Tokyo DOGS episode 1…

OMG…

super super good man…

i think i like this better than IRIS… but both has its different good points lah… haha…

the story revolves around Takakura Sou (Oguri Shun’s) and Kudo Maruo (Mizushima Hiro’s), detectives with the police. Sou was previously with the American police but then got kinda like fired when an operation to capture a known yakuza or gangster dealing in drugs went wrong in America, where Maruo was also present. As the operation was going on, they found Matsunaga Yuki (Yoshitaka Yuriko) who was at the scene. She apparently lost her memory. They bring her back to Japan, where Sou got hired by the chief police (or similar) of Japan, becoming Marou’s partner. Their job is to protect Yuki from being captured by the yakuza.

i would think that the whole series will concentrate on the two protecting the girl…

although there were intense situations… it was still quite hilarious as both Sou and Marou’s personality are very different… evenin terms of dressing… Sou is a no nonsence guy in a suit while Marou is a happy-go-lucky guy in casuals… even when the two are on a mission to save the girl when she got kidnapped… they were still arguing… with Sou arguing with a total straight face while Marou was the one with all the expressions…

so damn funny lah…

and there was one part where after rescuing the girl… Sou asked Marou where he was planning to bring Yuki when they got captured, Marou didn’t want to answer so another detective who was part of the team anwered and said ‘Thai restaurant…’ Sou then was like indignant asking why and what nots… Marou thought the reason was that it was dangerous and such but then Sou said: ‘Their tom yam is terrible… blah blah blah…’ Marou was like: ‘You are talking about food…???’

hahahahaha…

i was like LOL LOL LOL man…

and Sou’s mother is so funny… always calling when he is on an investigation… hahaha…

ok… if by now you still havent watched it… YOU SHOULD… although i am a bit late…
