Woah! Now how did I miss this one?? As I was dropping a quick word of thanks to TimeLesSub’s fantastic release of Boss’ episode 1, what do I see out of the corner of my eye?? Mr. Brain’s episode 1 has ALSO BEEN SUBBED!?! All thanks goes to GiriGiri Fansubs! My my…I’m sure going to be VERY busy!!! HEHEHEHEHE Haven’t watched a good jdrama in a while. I still need to finish Triangle, which I will very shortly (bit a disappointment with a draggy ending so far). Anyway, just to let you guys know. It’s actually been out for 3 days already but I watch out for hard subs only. I actually might wait for TimeLesSub’s hardsub version…hmm…
A few friendly visitors recently left me some messages on Meebo – just want to answer their questions. I can’t through Meebo cos they’re not a permanent buddy on my list!!
Have I heard of Hatsu Koi Shimai?
Yep – I have. Tessa actually recommended it a little while ago. But I haven’t checked it out yet!!! I do plan to though!!
Have I seen subs for BOSS or Mr. Brain?
Although subbing groups have already announced their intentions to sub these dramas, no release has actually been made yet. Best place to hunt for any subbing is D-Addicts. If I spot any release, I’ll post something up!! I’m keen to watch these two myself! I’m surprised the subbing has been slow on these as both sound pretty interesting with a stellar cast.
Well that’s all for now!!
On top of Kazuya Kamenashi’s in episode 3, it has been confirmed that Gackt and Ryoko Hirosue will be guest appearing in episode 1!!! Another reason to check it out on 23 May when it goes on air!!! I wonder what rating it’ll get!?! I’m a fan of Ryoko so I’m tempted to watch…though I shouldn’t be watching any TV at the moment!!! >_< More details at Tokyograph.
It’s been confirmed! Kazuya Kamenashi will appear on the Mr. Brain jdrama as guest star! He will act as a young elite doctor. More details at Tokyograph.
PFFT!! Him as a doctor?! hahaha Not convincing at ALL!!! hehe I guess it’s just to drive gossip and interest amongst viewers. I’m actually not a fan but I’m sure plenty of people are interested!! His face just looks a bit strange to me and in reality shows, he’s behaviour is way girly! Geez…he’s eyebrows are more done up than mine!?! LOL Now THAT get’s a bit scary! hehe
Oh and here’s a 30 second preview trailer on Youtube. Watch it before it’s taken down!!
P.S. One last thing, it’s hard to imagine Takuya Kimura as being a genius with that hair of his!?! Am I the only one that thinks that?! haha
There’s a NEW late addition to the jdrama world this season!! I had heard rumours of it before but clearly it’s now confirmed!! It’s Mr. Brain! Yep – a lame name indeed but given the cast, I can forgive them! =) With Takuya Kimura and Haruka Ayase on the screen!!?! I’m SO THERE!! hahaha
Story doesn’t actually sound that exciting – Takuya basically plays a very smart neuroscientist (i.e. studies the nervous system) and will end up solving mysteries etc. I’m betting that Haruka plays the love interest. hehe Oh well – it doesn’t sound like anything new but given it’s the Japanese, they’ll make a neuroscientist look like the most fascinating and inspiring job ever with the uplifting music pumping in the background! haha
As for the other dramas? So far it looks like BOSS is leading the pack! I’m only covering the ones I looked at before. Average ratings so far:
- BOSS at 16.1% over 3 episodes (peaked at the start at 18.1%)
- Atashinchi no Danshi at 11.6% over 3 episodes (peaked at start at 14.1%)
- Meitantei no Okite at 10.4% over 2 episodes
- Godhand Teru at 8.7% over 3 episodes
- Boku no Imouto at 10.6% over 2 episodes
Looks like I was right to select BOSS as the ‘must see’ one!! haha When when when will episode 1 be subbed?!?! Must be patient…
