I'm currently watching Gakeppuchi Hotel and damn, Toda Erika is so ugly nowadays.
>>19877985Sadly, people get old, anon.
>>19878130She's only 30. Japanese females usually look good well into their late 30s.
>>19877985I finished watching that a month ago. Yeah she is definitely ugly now. As for the show, it's decent storywise and lighthearted, but the characters are too 2 dimensional.
Tried to get into jp cinema and watched "Confessions" because it won the jp academy award for that yearand I didn't like it because it was as though I was reading a book....too much shit I didn't need to know crammed into a 100min movie, too much narration and for its length felt kind of long and plodding, never seeming to go anywherejudging from the past winners Japan really does slice-of-life well like sanchome no yuuhi, departures, our little sister, the great passage, etc. but this best picture win baffles me
Hamabe Minami >>>>>>> Hirose Suzu
>>19878850>Hamabe MinamiI liked her in Anohana, but that gambling one was super shit.
What are some good shows from the past 1 or 2 years? any genre will do
>>19879338Bokutachi ga yarimashita
Tried watching Takane no Hana. The way she locks her bike triggers me.
>>19880199If you can't get past this shit, I am afraid that you won't be able to stand how edgy this show is going to be past episode 3.
>>19880219Satomi s cute enough to make up for all the edge, but thief baiting triggers me.
I need some essential movies about Japanese drinking culture
>>19880602You can leave your bike anywhere in Japan. 95% of the time, it will be just fine because nobody will want to steal or even touch it. The locking is just an extra precaution.
Looking for a horror movie I saw years ago and cant recall the name of.A lot nonsense happens in it but it's all part of one larger story not an anthology like Tales of Terror from Tokyo.It opens with eyeball slug creatures sliding accross a highway with cars running over them and a creepy song/chant done by kids. In no particular order a family moves into a new house with a spooky ghost in the futon closet that ends up killing all of them I think. A young man gets a job as a waiter and sees a masked old man sitting alone at a corner all night long and goes to talk to him before another waitress stops him and turns out it's a spooky monster. A bunch of drunk bros are wandering the streets when they see a sexy geisha wearing a basket over her head but she is also a spooky monster. A young man gets a cursed sticker on his motorcycle and crashes lightly into some shrubs and talks to someone passing by before the dude pulls him out of the shrubs and turns out motorcycle dude has an entire half of his body missing and he was talking to the father of the family moving in the new house.Thank you in advance.
who is that a poster of in the background?
>>19879106No fuck you.
If anyone knows where I can find the Shinsengumi Taiga drama from 2004 in higher than bare-minimum quality and with English subs, please spoonfeed me.The release on Nyaa is of decent quality but the subs aren't in English. Tried all the links in the OP pastebin and only found a release on the Russian site, which had (hardcoded) subs but the quality was 240p or less.
>>19878691Nakashima Tetsuya is a fucking hack and everything he has directed has been pretentious shit for hipsters.
>>19881520Is this pedo bait?
tell me if this is at least watchable. I saw a torrent on avistaz
>>19882950Haven't seen it, but from what I heard: It's bad.
Anyone can recommend more movies like kairo? Also watch it if you havent yet
legit 10/10 show. holy fuck so well written and funnyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rwW7Qx9z2E>>19883044creepybefore we vanish
>>1988129295% means that 1 in 20 cases things won't be fine. If you use your bike once every week, you will get it stolen on average in less than 6 months.
>>19882950>>19882962Well, I watched it anyway. It's like your typical capeshit film. Like watching the FMA film which would you appreciate more if you knew the actors. Also it's like watching a crossover of kamen rider and hana nochi hare due to the characters' acting. Fine movie, and nothing spectacular.
>>19887320if you didn't know by now then yes, anime adaptions is pretty much capeshit for weebs where they just pour copious amounts of money into action/cgi scenes
>>19888180>battle shonen anime adaptions is pretty much capeshit for weebs ftfy
Why did Kubota acted in Himomen again?Fucking waste of talent and time.
>>19890055I have seen two episodes of it and remembering his role in Fugitive Boys, I gotta agree with you.
>>19890670I could not even get past the first episode. It's beyond cringe and it's embarrassing to watch.
How popular is Arimura Kasumi as an actress?
Am I the only one who thinks FujiTV got shut down and rebranded as ForJoyTV was because Tokyo TV sperged out again against their content aviable online and make them shut down, as they did with youtube videos of Game Center DX when /v/ fucked up the Arino 's birthday card and got Arino's fame because of the youtube videos exposed to TV Tokyo?
>>19881520Oh shit, that's The Crazy Family from Sogo Ishii, I need to find that movie.
>>19891071Looked up some popularity rankings of Japanese actresses:1. #21 in the ranking of top 30 most popular Japanese actresses ( https://rank1-media.com/I0000109 )2. #2 in the ranking of top 35 most popular actresses in their twenties ( https://rank1-media.com/I0000064/&page=1 )3. #9 in the ranking of top 15 cute, young actresses ( https://ciatr.jp/topics/69926 )4. #13 in another ranking of popular Japanese actresses ( https://www.channelcinema.com/ranking/2018actressjpbest.html )So it would seem she is quite popular. However, you should keep in mind that these rankings are just the top 4 I got in google when I popped in google "日本の女優人気ランキング", so they might not (and probably aren't) very objective.
Looking for good Japanese delinquent film. Help.
>>19888180>>19890039>adaptionsAdaptations, you fucking illiterate shitstains.
Anyone watched any of the movies from latest Cannes festival?累 Kasane 斬 Zan: Killing孤狼の血 Korou no Chi. The blood of wolvesカメラを止めるた！ One cut of the dead
has anyone worked out how to get all the forjoytv channels back without paying yet?
>>19892884Dude just search "forjoytv script" and it's right there. Also>AllThey removed like 15 or something like that
>>19892911I didnt mention the script? obviously i have thati know how many they removed, not sure what it has to do with anything, maybe you just dont understand the meaning of "all"?
what are the best mono no aware series/movies?
>>19892641Both are correct by the dictionary standard.Adaptation is the common old word while adaption is a word made up by autist that eventually got recognized by the dictionary people. Also, I am just greentexting the other anon, I am more towards using 'adaptation' myself, since it sounds much better.
>>19892748I am reading Kasane manga right now. It's pretty fucked in the head and I like it. From the trailers, I thought the movie going to be just fine, so I'll wait for a viideo release.
>>19891528She isn't that cute though.

Fellas I love Riho Yoshioka.
>>19894204Are you a Brazilian?
>>19894275No, why do you ask?
>>19894204I really liked her in Quartet. Too bad most of her other roles are generic and boring. I feel like whoever described her as the next Gakky was very apt in that
>>19891528>top 15 cute, young actresses>Tsuchiya Tao at #7What the fuck man, she's ugly.
>>19894327I'm not really a fan of her either. I've tried watching two dramas with her (Mare and the second one I can't remember) and failed to finish either, but later I have seen her in some prank show where she pretended to be some dudes fiancée and she did seem cute there.
>>19894204I liked her in these "fox" commercials.
>>19894327She isnt pretty but she was great in Tori Girl
Can anyone reccomend good Locked Room/Fair Play mystery shows? I've watched Furuhata Ninzaburo and Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de
What are some drama that you'd put above the norm on a writing/directing level? Or in other words, drama where it was the plot or cinematography that impressed you, rather than just girls being cute.For me it was Mother. It looked like a typical housewife drama on first glance, but the production values were above average and the script does a really good job in getting you emotionally invested.
>>19894327I am not her fan but eh, she looks just fine. If I were to compare Tsuchiya to Yoshine Kyoko in Kasane, Yoshine wins hands down.
>>19897027Bokutachi ga yarimashita for both directing and writing.Hanbun, Aoi for characters and plot.
>>19897027I liked Tonbi. The family relations and the way a child's growing up process is shown really worked with me.Also, I agree with >>19897392 on Bokutachi ga Yarimashita (haven't seen Hanbun, Aoi so I can't judge that).
>>19897392>>19897455>Bokutachi ga yarimashitaWasn't that a manga? It seems to be pretty popular here, I'll have to check it out.
>>19897565I checked and it was, but it avoids the mistakes that most manga adaptations that you hear about make, so it doesn't even feel like it.
>>19897455If you like family drama and character growth, both physically and personality, Hanbun, Aoi is a must watch (written by the writer of Long Vacation, I supposed). Well, most asadora tells a story of main character's growth and how the environment she's raised in affected herself in all aspect, but Hanbun, Aoi plot flows naturally and the drama doesn't feel too forced like certain asadora and regular jdrama.
>>19897027well for me I'd say Nobuta wo Produce is one of the best SoL drama I have seen. The characters and their dialogues are written as realistically as possible. Even the problems they encounter every episode is as realistic as possible too. Nothing overly theatrical happens.>>19897565This one is really good too. I never read the manga so I was so surprised with how the story played out. Also the lead actor (Kubota) plays his role so well. IMO, he's the best actor in his generation when you look how he did his performance.
>>19898068I will give it a try, but as my Japanese is still pretty bad: is it really easy to understand or should I wait for subtitles to come out?
oh fuck Kirin Kiki just died
>>19899231you can wait though but most of the time asadora won't get subbed at all.
>>19900358Maybe I was just lucky with the asadoras I chose to watch, but so far I have tried to watch 5 of them and all of them were subbed (Amachan, Gochisousan, Mare, Asa ga Kita, Hiyokko). Maybe it's just that I picked the popular ones or smth, but if Hanbun, Aoi is as good as you say it is, then it's probably just a matter of time.
>>19900328The only thing I've seen with her in it was Kage no Gundan. Still, RIP.
>>19900586Those asadora you watched were subbed because they had quality and popular actress became the lead.Hanbun, Aoi will most probably get sub (since Nagano Mei is the next big thing), but not sooner though.
>>19900586Did you like Gochisousan and Asa ga Kita? Im finishing Mare soon and looking for a new Asadora to watch. Already watched Amachan and Hiyokko.
Are these asadoras really worth watching? I can't fathom something going for 100+ episodes and not becoming boring
>>19904187If you even consider it, you're probably so far gone you might as well try them.
>>19904187Asadora runs for 15 minutes each episodes. When you totaled a whole series up and compared to regular drama run time, you will get roughly 50+ episodes per series. Also, asadora make use of time skips so that the character can develop throughout the whole story. I have only watched Teru Teru Kazoku, Beppin-san and Hanbun Aoi; out of these three Hanbun Aoi has the most consistent writing, no forced drama down your throat and the time skips flow naturally. Teru Teru Kazoku is fine, though Ishihara Satomi, the lead actress didn't matter until episode 100 (it's kinda strange since the story mostly focuses on her mother's decision to drive the story), but the story is fine, not the best though.Beppin-san, has a lot of forced drama and the time skips doesn't transitioned well. I watched it purely because Yoshine Kyoko is the lead.So I suggest that if you want to watch asadora, give it chance until you reach week 5, or at least until the lead actress in on screen, since the story will start with main character's childhood. You can drop it if it bores you, then.
Bokutachi ga yarimashita. The ending feels so grounded that it makes me feel depressed.
>>19904182I liked Asa ga Kita, but the actress in Gochisousan didn't quite fit the role for me (I've seen her previously in xxxHOLIC and maybe that was because of the image I had of her character from there), so I haven't finished it (I was around 40 episodes in, I think).
>>19904187I watched some of Amachan and it bored the hell out of me. I'm sure they're all the same corny shit.
>>19905964I mean, they are shows for bored housewives and people who just want to feel comfy. You might say they are the drama equivalent of the slice of life genre in anime aka "cute girls do stuff".
>>19905995Or cute girls do stuff and lived through so many shit in their lifetime.>>19905964Define your corny shit.
>>19907868Better be good or surpass the damn source material.
Can someone recommend me some drama that focuses on siblings? Already watched wakamono tachi and ryusei no kizuna
>>19908693There's one with Maki Horikita. A comedy though (Atashinchi no danshi). There's also one with Satomi Ishihara (Dear Sister).
Hello lads, I am looking for two kinds of shows.What are some of the most influential classic japanese shows? The kinds of things they reference on those variety quiz shows. Things like Taiyo ni Hoero (which I unfortunately can't find anywhere).And I am looking for a good slice-of-life jidaigeki. Something more lighthearted and maybe focused on some not-so-important members of ancient society.Thanks!
Has anyone seen Shima no Sensei? The premise and preview screenshots look really comfy.Also any other shows that are set in cool (rural) places and landscapes? Or basically anything that isn't too fixated on a single place like a school or office building.
>>19910004Check previous thread.
No point in me asking making a separate thread for this since it is related to tv. Is there a youtube channel that regularly uploads jp tv commercials? JPCHMD or whatever it was called was my go to but the guy quit the channel seemingly for good a while ago.
>>19892911>>19892938Is the demo popup coming up for you guys on forjoytv? I got the script but it comes back, I've reloaded and reinputted the scripts
Anyone knows what happened to japantv online? Is it only me or the video won't load at all?
>>19915709Haven't used it myself, but IIRC some said it's dead in the couple of previous threads, so you might want to check them. Might have been some other site too though.
>>19915719It was fine on Monday (Japan time) though.
Kahogo no Kahoko SP, well that was short for an SP. I thought it would be at least 80 to 90 minutes.
>>19915802Was it already out?
>>19915816Just aired an hour ago.
>>19915827I'll wait for a rip then.
>>19902940Aaaand first 6 episodes with subs are up on kissasian.
It seems d-addicts changed it mind in removing its subtitle section.
>>19915886And it has been two months since then. Good luck on waiting. Latest you will get it subbed probably by the end of the year.
>>19916198That's fine, It's just a year anyway. Jimi ni Sugoi had half year breaks between episodes.
>>19916498But that's just my guess. It is up to anyone who's willing to sub the rest of the episodes. Just a head's up that the series will wrapped up next week. I can provide translations if someone can help me re-time the Japanese subtitles in Jpsubbers.
>>19908668it's gonna be directed by Yuichi Fukuda
Watched the first episode of Bokutachi ga yarimashita. It was ok I guess.Renko Aokawas actress is really cute, though I don't like the character she acts. Why would she hang around that bad dude? The acting and logical leaps as a whole feel exaggerated in this, I know this isn't uncommon in drama, but I just don't like it and many drama do fine without that. Finally, I REALLY hated the gang leader dude, I hope he's actually dead and won't come back for the rest of the series. From here on out I'm not too sure what direction the show will go, them running away and hoping to not get caught by the detective/police/gang members? I hope it's not that lame and has some surprises.
>>19916946awesome, best comedy director in japan
>>19917489Just go through he episodes. She started out like she was a playgirl but it is quite the opposite. And shit happens, the gang leader dude will have some twist too.
I need help remembering the title of a film; it's about a brother-sister sibling (not exactly certain if their parents were dead or abandoned them from the start), the little sister grew up to be quite a rebellious teenage brat, but straightened up her act towards the end of the film, just before her brother dies from overworking.
why did she need to manipulate that guy to have him for a boyfriend? are guys really like that in japan?I would have taken hana to the bathroom and hit it raw
So is the jap version of Good doctor good? Havent watched Ueno Juri since Nodame Cantabile.
15 episodes of Hanbun, Aoi are subbed on kissasian at the moment. It's comfy, I like it.
>>19923850And then it goes roller coaster for Suzume.Still comfy though, one thing I like about Hanbun Aoi is that the writer doesn't force the plot down the audience's throat. It's just like watching Non Non Biyori but with an actual story.
>>19907868Why is Yamazaki so popular. He sucks
Did Zero: The Bravest Money Game get subbed yet?
trying to identify a show I saw onceit was a rakugo but they acted out the story as it was being told; when talking they just mouthed the dialogue so the storyteller/narrator was the only one speaking. The production value made it seem like a fairly recent show, maybe even currently in syndication.
>>19924310There are releases with English subs up to ep 6 on Avistaz but only in sd video quality.I honestly wouldn't recommend watching this series. There are too many cringy characters. Just (re-)read the manga.
the gintama mini drama is just 3 episodes but it's really funny
>FujiTv/ForJoyTv not working after 5 daysthis is the end, isn't it?
I finished it. The last episode was rather disappointing. I think the series would have been better if Ryoichi hasn't died.
Anyone know what this is from?
>>19930268Gravity's Clowns/ Jyuryoku Pierrot
This was pretty good. Never read the manga so it was surprising how it ended.
>>19933493Was thinking about it, but I'm always a bit wary with manga adaptations. But since you recommend it, I will give it a shot.
>>19933493The anime was good too.
>>19935188It isnt overly dramatic nor overacted. The dialogue too feels natural most of the time. And a film set in 60's is refreshing to watch.>>19935434Maybe I'll watch it in the future.
Is there no replacement for FujiTV/ForJoyTV?
wtf is with this movie? is this supposed to be some kind of japanese twilight zone episode? You get to see some tits though. And are there even highschools in japan that do not require uniforms?
>>19944874>And are there even highschools in japan that do not require uniforms?According to google: yes
Trying to find a show I saw maybe a decade ago at most. If I recall correctly, it was a police/detective drama about an older woman (baa-chan tier, I think) solving crime cases. I don't remember if she was uniformed or plainclothes. I think I caught an episode of it while waiting for one of those New Year's batsu game shows.
>>19950034Not sure, anon. I remember the show having a more serious atmosphere than what I'm seeing of BOSS. I think the lady in it was older and she may have also had a male partner she worked with. Thanks for the mention though!
Anyone know of a sitcom centered around a seiyuu? Saw an episode a few months ago while in japan. Can't find it anywhere.
>>19949654>>19950917I think I've finally found it: 嘘の証明 犯罪心理分析官・梶原圭子 (Uso no Shoumei Hanzaishinribunsekikan Kajiwara Keiko), starring Takahashi Yumiko. Judging by its airdate, I might've caught it while waiting for something related to anime; not while waiting on the new year's batsu game show.
I just finished watching Apology King (movie). It is funny and Kankuro Kudo is really a good writer.
>>19955434Yes he is, you should check out his older stuff too. He's not a crazy as before but still good but as a director he's average.
>>19955477Ive already watched iwgp, tiger and dragon, and sorry youth which are 10/10 series imo. Want to watch Ama chan but the 100 episodes are overwhelming. Currently starting kisarazu cat's eye. His style of storytelling is so peculiar.
>>19955336Or maybe it was Shokatsu no Onna.
>>19955645Asadora is only 15 minutes per episode, anon.It's not like you have to watch 150 episodes of 50 minutes drama series.
after a two year effort, tracked down a good quality of Imamura's Unagi; I watched the first half yesterday. I enjoyed it.I like movies/shows which naturally have these collection of interesting characters. I also liked the color saturation of the film.
>>19957042>after a two year effortI had a 640p version since forever, what quality is yours?
Hey guys, can you recommend a series that's good for immersion learning? Something where you can get a lot of meaning from the visual context. Not really heavy on inside jokes, meta stuff, wordplay, etc. Whatever genre, any era.
>>19907868>he is an otaku>but handsomedropped, I can't relate
>>19962013He's an otaku but not a NEET or a total hikky. He's just a hardcore gamer.The girl is a fujoshi but not a NEET.They are both working adults who get away with society problems by playing vidya and consume anime and manga.
>>19962848I don't think it will translate well into live action. It has very over the top stylistic that works better in anime.
Man, next week's Suiyoubi looks good. Terrace House meets Kuro-chan, in a 2 hour special.
>>19962013He really looks like the lead though. I wonder who will they get for the big breasted character and her boyfriend.
>>19963222you've never seen a Fukuda film, huh?
>>19966082Dropped Nietzche in the convenience store after 1 or 2 episodes, does that count?
You fucking weebs haven't mentioned KUROSAWA once!!!
>>19967549Kurosawa is Japanese cinema. So I dont see why he's not being discussed. He's infact the greatest director Japan has ever had.
>>19967560all movies made before 1990 are boring shit and only pretentious fags like them
>>19967642>cannot enjoy movies from any time periodThis is a sign of shit taste.
>>19967485I know Rashomon is all the rave but what do you make of Throne of Blood?I found it a bit too much to enjoy properly.
>>19967485I discuss it on /tv/. This is more of a cozy jdrama thread for me which no other board accepts.
>>19967734well both of those films are some of my least favorites.I think Yojimbo, Hidden Fortress, Drunken Angel, High and Low are truly entertaining.Roshomon and Throne of blood both have a very Kabuki, Noh theater vibe to them. Which makes them feel less relatable.
>>19967734>>19967823Throne of Blood is my favorite Kurosawa film; I guess you have to love Macbeth to enjoy it as an adaptation. The atmosphere and acting is near-perfect; one of Mifune's best roles in my mind.
>>19968002how many kurosawa films have you seen because i think Ran and Kagemusha are both better than Throne of Blood.Although they don't have Mifune in them.Nakadai is also amazing.
>>19968048I haven't seen Ran, but I think I have seen all his other jidaigeki and a few of his gendaigekiKagemusha is very good, but I feel like it is ultimately far too long and doesn't really develop the kagemusha as a character as much as it should to make the ending meaningful. I get the point that he's becoming a shadow himself, but I feel like the ending of Throne of Blood, which highlights the same theme (futility of unbridled ambition, the ultimate hollowness of their efforts), is more powerful because we have seen Macbeth develop the whole way through. I further appreciate the adaptation of the supernatural elements of Macbeth into the Japanese context, and I think it goes over well in that film.
>>19968100I'm not sure why but Throne of Blood never really clicked with me. It's probably just because i had watched Yojimbo and Seven Samurai before.Those movies are more lighthearted, entertaining and fun.You might like ran, the trap actress makes my dick very confused.
>>19968130Don't sweat it, people like what they will like. I always watch it again around Halloween along with Kobayashi Masaki's Kwaidanyeah I have been meaning to get around to more kurosawa, Ran in particular. I also need to see High and Low.
>>19968165High and Low is phenomenal.
Any good romance shit been out in the past few years?
I used one of the links in the pastebin to look for a show and ended up navigating through three advertisement interstitials just to find that the link had expired. How do you people live like this.
>>19970313At some point, you unlock the ability to automatically filter ads in your brain. Also, some of the links might be outdated. Pastebin wasn't updated in some time and the streaming sites change often.
Just saw this. and it was fucking KINO.
I wish I could go to a theater in America and see a non anime Japanese movie. Funimation seemed like they were going to start filling that need a bit when they put out Shin Godzilla and Tokyo Ghoul, but now it seems like they've given up on the idea.
>>19970517I have princess jellyfish and Your my pet 2017 just saved in my pc unwatched. Though I heard they were decent shows. Newest drama I last watched was Hana Nochi hare and Ossans Love which were really good. I was busy watching older shows, so really can't rec anything new.
>>19972066Don't know about America, but in my country (Poland) some of the smaller cinemas sometimes show them (I have seen An in the cinema, for example).>>19972415Princess jellyfish was such a fucking cringefest
>>19961415Mother should be pretty simple to follow
Looking for something comfy and calm to watch. It doesn't necessarily have to be happy go lucky though, sad plots are fine as long as it is "quiet" and the characters aren't being hyper and yelling. This one is not needed but would be nice if it was set in the current season, autumn/winter.Any suggestions?
>>19975426Adrift in TokyoDolls
>>19975440Thanks, noted.Oh and I didn't necessarily mean movies, I'm up for TV shows too.
The Little House (2014)
This little gem deserves recognition. https://youtu.be/FHwRHSsypT0
Meh film. I thought it would at least have some cool fight scenes.
>>19974799Not him, but I've seen so many dramas that cringefests dont affect me anymore. It's like getting used to pixelated genitals in JAV
>>19974799Princess Jellyfish in general is a cringeworrthy josei manga.
>>19976672The inspiration for Kuzunoha Raidou.
>tfw just watched Shoplifters
>>19982366Take that frog away from /jp/.
>>19961415Try Ikebukuro West Gate Park
>>19883044"Charisma" 1999It's different but if you enjoyed kairo it's definitely worth watching. One of my favorites.
>>19982366Is it out in the web?
>>19982660You people make it way too easy to live in your head rent-free>>19983593No idea, saw it in a film festival.
>>19983911>No idea, saw it in a film festival.was it really that good to win at cannes? last koreeda film I watched was 3rd murder. Didnt really liked it compared to his other films
>>19987031I mean I don't know what else screened at Cannes to compare it to, but purely anecdotally I've seen about 30 movies at this festival and it was definitely one of the best. Your mileage will vary depending on how interested you are in watching an unconventional family slice of life story.
>>19987031Which films of his do you like best?
>>19978518this is the next one I watched. Disgusting and confusing premise. Still liked the story and the use of locations though

>>19994710What movie is this
>>19998244I'd bet on "Ameagaru"
>falls in love with step sisterinteresting story and liked it. Started watching Takane no Hana next and so far watching it for Ishihara Satomi's acting. She's so good.
>>19991489What a random, useless chart.
>>19993424April Story by Shunji Iwai. Great film.
Any promising dramas this fall?
>>19999383and I just finished Takane no Hana after bingeing it. Really good drama although the story feels like some adaptation of a manga. Doesn't really seem to be realistic but the acting and chemistry is 10/10. Perhaps was Kazama the takane no hana all along?
Where to watch it?
>>20008316I believe it's not out yet?
>>20010892It's from 2017.
anyone like Seigi no Mikata? I like it, any similar shows?
>>19915886I dropped that halfway through, when she quit being a mangaka.Felt like the story was just going nowhere at that point.
What are your top 3 movies / tv shows?
>>20013700This year it wasZettai Reido S03Seigo no SeYaretakamo
>>20003346Kuro-chan is something else.Shame we have to wait another 3 weeks for the next episode. Although there's this year's Lincoln undoukai to look forward to next week.

>>20017388Yeah, I know. But short hair doesnt suit her. She was so pretty with long hair and looks like she gained weight in this film. Her face was puffy.

i watched Midnight Diner - Tokyo Stories. it's so nice and calm and it makes me feel good, even if some episodes are a bit sad. Is Season 2 good aswell? will torrent it because it's not on netflix germany.
>>20025388yes and there are movies too
I wonder why Gakki's new drama isn't garnering much attention. The screenwriter is Nogi Akiko who wrote the award winning dramas Nigehaji and Unnatural.
>>20028546I will watch anything with Gakki. Also this has Ryuhei Matsuda, great actor. Loved his role in Blue Spring.
any movies about foreigners going to japan?
i imagine that if i were japanese this dialogue would be super cringy
>>20032470Silence and Last Samurai
>>20028546Is this the one that is similar to the koi dance show?
>>20032470>>20032998>>20033406What show is this desu?
>>20035454jinx our boy is in it
>>20038988https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS63u7GP0PE>Japanese people as Chinese peopleour boy is an action star now
Which one is more engaging, Amachan or Hiyokko? I want to watch another asadora that is not Beppinsan or Manpuku.
>>20029894It will when the show aired on tv and the pilot is actually good enough like the rest of Nogi's dramas.
>>20041821Nogi Akiko, the screenwriter.The first episode was good.
>>20041969Awesome, hopefully a fansubber picks it up soon.
this was decent for a mystery thriller
Are the Cromartie live action movies actually good?Some friend keeps insisting on my watching those but most liveaction movies I watched ranged from mediocre to sucking balls.
japantv.online seems to have been taken down. Anyone have an alternative for 24/7 streams of NHK and the like?
Is lily chou chou overrated? It is my first movie (literally just watched 4 movies from japan)
>>20045919I thin it's a bit overrated. Other Shunji Iwai films are better. Should rewatch it though.
>>20045934Hmmmm, maybe it was too overcomplicated? Like that water scene made me dizzy (cuz im a pussy) and was boring, but all the other shit was so good.
>>20045387Most japanese tv streaming sites are affected, probably due to ip change. Some of them already updated to new ips, you can google and try checking th first few results.
>>20045919It's very artsy, and depressing. I liked it though. It's rarely discussed in /tv/ or here.
Who is this girl?
>>20044657It's a comedy, what can go wrong?
anyone know the name of the drama where the dropped bento school girl meme is from?
this guy is in everything
wtf am i watching?
>>20028546>NTV Autumn 2018 drama "Kemono ni narenai watashitachi" starts the season with a rating of 11.5%Dead on arrival, and no subber for it yet. You better look for something else, anon.
>>20051945The pilot episode was ok, so does Chuugakusei.
>>20051945What is the good rating for a show in japan now? I doubt everyone there still uses the TV exclusively to watch their shows.
>>20051945>>2005208111% is decent/good nowadays, and it’s kinda a stable for the NTV’s Wed 10PM time slot (depending on the lead). We can’t assume if it’s bad or good just yet, some dramas tend to pick up live audience around mid to final episodes. With that being said, I’m not confident this one will be a hit, but I hope it will prove me wrong.
How was it?
So is there anything decent for live anime now? dsgstng got hit to no one's surprise, so all I have is Abema which only has a few series live at the same time as cable TV. I'm thinking of trying Sky Perfect assuming they don't geoblock, but the prices are pretty shitty.
is the 2010+ gto any good? I really enjoyed the 95's one
The SP is good. Kahoko is too pure for this world>>20053237yes>>20052261I liked her in 35 yr old Highschool student. So good in acting.
>>20053749Doctor X. Watch it. Now.
>>19920559Too early to tell, so far so good. Overall good feelings
>>20051072That little girl's reaction looks like its real
>>20054064I'll put it on my backlog. Did you start from season 1?
What's a good site for streaming pref. without ads?
>>20058924There aren't any. Half the chinks uploading this shit can't even be bothered to check the footage before they put it out, and everything on a site with even half-decent quality will be removed within a week.
>>20058090Duh, of course.
>>20053237Personally, AKIRA's GTO is more faithful to the original source material and the emotional parts really hits, more than the 95 version ever did.
>>20052199I will watch it for Gakky and Sento.
>>20060658well I have never read the original and sorimachi is really cute.
Does the new (for america) iron chef japan 2012 dub belong on here or go to /ck/? I'm going to snatch it up as soon as its on the net. the undubbed is already on the net.
Is the Japanese dub of The Simpsons available for stream/download anywhere or am I going to have to look for a DVD?
>>20051945Any subs for this yet?
>>20064579None. No one even showed interest yet. And the drama being aired in some Southeast Asian shithole network doesn’t help. It’s a Gakki drama though, I don’t think it will be shafted on, but there’s very little hype surrounding it, I’m expecting slow ass subbing basis.
>>20064881I wish my shithole networks aired Jdrama again. It's all K nowadays.
>>20059666so this show is just her eating stuff?
>>20059666I've never seen more suitable actress for a live-action adaptation of a manga like this before.
>>20052261>TV Asahi Autumn 2018 drama "Legal V ~ Moto Bengoshi Takanashi Shouko ~" begins the season with a rating of 15% on 11 Oct 2018Ratings queen at it again.

uh, hii only came here to say that densha otoko is actually pretty goodthat is alli hope you have a good day anon
Finished watching the 1st season of Legal High (friend's recommendation), was alright for what it was I guess. Anyone here seen the movie, worth watching?
>>20078138I completely forgot nyaa had LA shows. thanks
>>20081805it's really not. melodramatic and way too exaggerated.
>>20081805Waiting for live action of Chikan Otoko.
>>20064881Gakky killed my hype for it desu
>>20085570Rude and shittastepilled
When did Japanese TV get good? I always remembered Japanese TV shows from the 90s and early 2000s looking remarkably worse than their western counterparts. I just watched some of the newer shows on Netflix and I'm impressed. Some genuinely good productions.Why was Japanese TV in the early 2000s so bad anyway?
>>20086275Probably two reasons:1. Budget2. Western acting style in movies was highly influenced my method acting technic, whereas Japanese was stilly highly bound to classical theatre and might seem like overacting. Over years the western influence led to the shift in the acting style towards something closer to what you are used to.
>>20083528There is already, but it sucks balls. The actresses for the girls are great but they completely miscast Molester.
Does this count? It's filmed in Taiwan but directed, written, and voiced in Japanese.
>>20088409It's animated (or live action?) though. I dunno if this is for /a/ or /jp/.
>>20088409>>20088928it's puppets and has more in common with /a/ though I don't know what they think of it since I don't browse there
