Anticipated jdramas: Winter 2013
Although I hyped up the j-drama fall season of 2012, it turned out to just be…ok. There were, of course, wonderful underrated gems like Hitorishizuka and Going My Home. There was your above average yet not absolutely amazing dramas such as Osozaki no Himawari, Kekkon Shinai, and Sarutobi Sansei. And yes, there was the crap that was not worth watching. Won’t mention any titles there. Anyways I am looking forward to a clean slate in the winter season. Got any upcoming jdramas that I didn’t mention here? Comment down below! 😉
I am most excited for…
Onna to Otoko no Nettai
Notable cast: Fujiwara Norika, WATABE ATSURO
About: A lady journalist tracks down a dangerous lead but ends up getting entangled with him.
CM (updated to newest CM):
Bottom line: Oh man. Watabe Atsuro in another dark drama. By WOWOW. This I have got to see.
Notable cast: Watanabe Anne (Joker), Sometani Shota
About: Based off of the CLAMP manga xxxHolic.
Bottom line: THIS GORGEOUS PROMO POSTER JUST BLEW MY MIND. WOWOW FOR THE WIN. I am kinda in shock that WOWOW is doing an xxxHolic live action!!! I cannot wait for the trailer BWAHAHAHAHAA.
I am anticipating these dramas for the cast……..
Notable cast: NAGASE TOMOYA!!!!
About: Erm the synopsis only confused me, I have no clue what it was saying.
Bottom line: But it doesn’t matter if I didn’t get the synopsis because……NAGASE TOMOYA IS THE LEAD. YES!!!!
Mahoro Ekimae Bangaichi
Notable cast: Eita, Matsuda Ryuhei
Bottom line: Come on, it is EITA and MATSUDA RYUHEI. AND BROMANCE. However judging by the CM it is more of an off-beat sort of drama which may not appeal to some people.
I am interested in these dramas because of the synopsis…
Sharehouse no Koibito
Notable cast: Mizukawa Asami, OIZUMI YO (Haken no Hinkaku), Nakajima Yuto
About: The heroine who is down on her luck in her love life moves into a “sharehouse” with two other guys. One of them has a failed marriage while the other is rather eccentric. She falls for both of them.
Bottom line: UMMM the synopsis sounds really AWESOME, I need this in my life!! I am also excited to see Oizumi Yo (Haken no Hinkaku) because he is just hilarious.
Nageki no Bijo
Notable cast: Kurosawa Kazuko, Yada Akiko, Nakamura Shizuka, Yokoyama Megumi
About: A bitter woman who is an internet troll ends up living with three other gorgeous women.
Bottom line: This sounds like it could be absolutely hilarious, plus the stills just look quirky and fun. Probably not a must-watch but I will check it out just for fun.
