Time running so fast… the spring season drama is going to end this month and the most anticipated summer season is coming right up in July! Click here to get to know what shows is up including SP dramas! If you don’t know nihongo, you can always go here. This year’s summer season is very young and manga feel, because many dramas are derive from manga and many young actors and actresses. Definitely is a great season of dramas and I’m quite interested to watch some of it.
Ushi ni Negai wo: Love & Farm
Tamayama Tetsuji, Koide Keisuke, Nakata Atsuhiko, Aibu Saki, Karina, Toda Erika etc.
This drama has quite a big cast, and the most important is…my favorite idol Toda Erika is in it! She’s been active in dramas recently haha. Well the story revolves around six third-year students at the Tokyo University of Agriculture who go to Hokkaido for a summer to get first-hand training in an agricultural setting. They will perform tasks such as milking a cow, cleaning pig sties, and feeding animals. One scene even features a cow giving birth. This drama will takes place in natural green environment, so I think this is a quite refreshing to watch!
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e
Horikita Maki, Oguri Shun, Ikuta Toma, Kimura Ryou etc.
Due to the popularity of the Taiwan version, Japan also wants to make their own. Maki Horikita is back since the not so good drama “Teppan Shoujo Akane”. Horikita plays the protagonist Ashiya Mizuki, a Japanese girl in the U.S. who one day sees the young athlete Sano Izumi (Oguri) compete in the high jump on television. She begins to idolize him, and decides to move to Japan to attend the same school as him. However, Izumi goes to an all-boys school, so Mizuki disguises herself as a boy to achieve her dream of being with her idol. This drama will features a huge bunch of IKEMEN or good looking guys, I think sure will attracts the females crowd.
Oguri Shun as usual, act as a leng chai character again, like in Hana Yori Dango. Really can’t hide his leng chai-ness hahaha. Definitely I will watch this drama.
Yama Onna Kabe Onna
Itoh Misaki, Fukada Kyoko, Oikawa Mitsuhiro, Koike Eiko
This is also a manga based drama. The story revolves around a woman working in a department store Itoh Misaki whose meager bust has earned her the nickname of “kabe onna” (kabe means wall, mean is flat lah haha, something like fei kei cheong in canto). Unfortunately for her, a well-endowed “yama onna” (yama meas mountain) gets assigned to the same department, heightening her insecurity.
I think the story could be quite interesting and fun to watch haha. Long time didn’t see Kyoko Fukada acting already. And I can see the uber pretty Itoh Misaki acting again! Wonder how she “hide” her assets because I think her body shape ain’t bad!
Yamada Taro Monogatari
Ninomiya Kazunari, Sakurai Sho, Kikuchi Momoko, Matsuoka Mitsuru, Oshinari Shugo etc.
This drama also first made in Taiwan, based on Japan manga. The chinese name is 贫穷贵公子 acted by one of the F4 member. Ninomiya Kazunari plays the title role of Taro Yamada, a smart, good-looking, and athletic high schooler. Unknown to his classmates, however, is that Yamada is actually living in poverty. Not really interested in storyline thou, but I would like to give it a try.
Domoto Koichi, Nakamaru Yuichi, Kato Natsuki, Taira Tomi etc.
From the title itself already suggested that it’s going to be a food related drama! I think this drama should be quite interesting to watch… since I miss out Bambino! current season, which is also food related, so I gonna watch this.
Other interested titles that I would give it a try is FIRST KISS, Tantei Gakuen Q, Juken no Kamisama, LIFE and Papa to Musume no Nanokakan. Wow, that would be 10 dramas I interested in. I will watch the first episode, after that only judge whether will continue to watch or not. I’m going to busy download all those in next few months 😀

So what’s your watch list? 😀
