    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there's a JDrama thread here.
    I've been a watcher of JDramas before I was into 48G, I've probably watched about 400 series, it was actually sort of my gateway to 48g.

    Anyway I'm guessing some of us here (maybe a lot) watch JDramas, let's talk, like what you're watching right now, your favorites and recommendations etc.
    I'm currently watching Todome no Kiss and Final Cut, so far I'm enjoying Todome no Kiss more than Final Cut.

    For this season:
    I watched almost every downloadable dorama on every season, of course not all left good impressions.
    Good watch: Kimi Sumi(abbrv)., Unnatural
    Okay: 99.9 season 2, BG
    The rest are quite horrible tbh. Let me know if I miss some good one.

    I can't wait fr the Netflix/Hulu (i forget)'s Sherlock and Kintori season 3.

    What's the full title of kimi tsukamu? Also who's in it?

    I've watched 1 episode of Unnatural but is on hold at the moment, I'll let the subbing team finish it first before watching it. It looks like a case of the week type of series so that kind of pushed it to on hold status for me. 99.9 s2 and BG are both on my to watch list.

    What's promising this year so far though is that there're a lot of series that've been picked up for subbing compared to last year.

    Sorry it was a typo (tbh i typed that one). It was KimiSumi, a fans abbrevation for Kimi ga Kokoro ni Sumitsuita. Muro Tsuyoshi's (He had his breakthru in Super Salaryman Saenai-shi) character is the highlight there lmao. His chemistry with Kiritani Kenta is so funny and so gopd.

    Hmm... never watched with sub since quite a long time, so tbh I don't mind for subs. But compared to early 2016, the drama is more interesting .

    Ahh that one, it's on my to watch list as well because of yoshioka riho, loved her performance in gomen aishiteru and from what I've read she was pretty good in quartet too.

    I wish I could watch doramas raw, there're a lot of good series yet to be subbed that I want to watch. :(

    I've only recently gotten into JDramas. I've seen 35-sai no Koukousei, Final Fantasy XIV: Hikari no Otousan, Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, Re:Mind, Code Blue (CB) season 1, CB Special, and am currently watching CB season 2.

    Code Blue is my favourite drama so far and one that I would highly recommend to those who haven't seen it. It's a medical drama starring Yamashita Tomohisa (YamaP) and Aragaki Yui, which are two names I knew of before I even started watching JDramas. It can get a little graphic with the medical procedures (blood, and vague unidentifiable organs in the body), but nothing too crazy. The show's first season came out in 2008, followed by a special in 2009, then a second season in 2010 and the third in 2017. Finally, there will be a movie coming out this year.

    Here's a link to my MyDramaList profile, which I just created yesterday. Feel free to add me if you're on there:

    Watch Yamegoku! It's amazing, really (and not just because Yuko's in it)
    Also Zeni no Sensou is pretty good as well. [hehe]

    I just realize that slice of life anime is actually 2d version of dorama. Then in my hatachi:

    My interests have shifted. I don't watch nearly as much anime as I did before, but I have seriously gotten into dramas since watching my first one in January. In 3 months, I have seen over 20 dramas.

    The last one I watched was Mother, from 2010, starring Ashida Mana. I already knew of Mana-chan before watching this, since she's such a famous child actress in Japan, but I thought that I wouldn't be able to see her as anything other than the Ashida Mana that I've seen in interviews and variety shows. I was so wrong, and I can now see why she is so popular in Japan; her acting is phenomenal!

    チア☆ダン, a movie starring Hirose Suzu about cheerleading. It's a great movie.
    (37:40 you can see Suzu singing KoiChun which is my dream collaboration [hehe])

    I saw this in my japanese class and I've watched it twice, it's a really great movie!

    Also, does anyone know any good high school romance dramas/movies? Those are the ones I tend to enjoy the most, although it doesn't have to be restricted to just high school age

    Itazura na kiss is one of my favorites dramas so i subscribe that recommendation.

    Other good dramas i remember right now with that setting are My Boss my hero and Sekai no chushin de ai wo sakebu, although both of them are very different to the ones already recommended i think they are top tier dramas.

    Since this is my first post in this thread i'll leave this here: https://mydramalist.com/dramalist/Kiri-Jolith
    I really need to update that....

    Just watch Keiji Yugami... gosh, this drama so underrated. It's better than what I was expect. Already bored to detective drama. I pict this drama bcs main cast interest me, Kamiki and Asano Tadanobu. Then I fell in love to this drama.

    And... new season will start soon. Not check any upcoming list yet. Only hear HanaDan new gen, seem it's get so much hype. I like Sugisaki Hana, so, may be I'll check it.

    Still waiting for 2nd season of Cold Case and Hanzawa Naoki.
