[Drama] Winter 2008 Upcoming Dramas

Its about time for a change of seasons. A change of seasons means that we will have a whole new batch of dramas to look forward to!

With Utahime, Yukan Club ending and Galileo nearing its end, means that Autumn 2007 dramas are all drawing to a close. This is where I will short list a few worthy dramas to watch and then watch less than half of them. ^^ Because of time concerns.

Okay, lets cut straight to the point here.

Hachimitsu to Clover
Starring: Narumi Riko, Ikuta Toma, Narimiya Hiroki, Seto Asaka...
I watched the movie version of this which starred Sakurai Sho and Aoi Yuu. I couldn't stand Aoi Yu's Hagu. But since I like Narumi Riko from "1 Litre of Tears" I suppose this should be fine. And Toma "HanaKimi" is in it! Excited I am, they have Narimiya Hiroki too! "NANA".

1 Pound no Fukuin
Starring: Kamenashi Kazuya, Kuroki Meisa, Yamada Ryosuke...
About some boxer who fell in love with a nun. Riiight. But it stars a Johnny's boy or two, so yeah, I will watch it.

Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi
Starring: Tamaki Hiroshi, Ayase Haruka, Tabe Mikako...
I like Ayase Haruka, and Tamaki Hiroshi from "Nodame Cantabile". I have no idea what this is about, but hell... who cares. I wanna watch this! Hopefully I get to watch it.

Bara no nai Hanaya
Starring: Katori Shingo, Takeuchi Yuko, Matsuda Shota...
Eee, the title means a Florist shop that doesn't sell roses. Hmm... something about a florist whose wife died. I think. Matsuda Shota is in. We watch.

Binbo Danshi
Starring: Oguri Shun, Yamada Yu...
I am beginning to like Oguri Shun in various ways... ^^ And I am curious about the interaction between him and Yamada Yu. xD Its a weird couple if you ask me. But Oguri Shun plays a poor uni student. I think.

Ashita no Kita Yoshio
Starring: Kohinata Fumiya, Matsuda Ryuhei, Kuriyama Chiaki...
Ehh... we have Matsuda Ryuhei and Kuriyama Chiaki. Whats more to ask for? Kuriyama is so pretty and the elder Matsuda looks hot in here... xD

Starring: Miyazaki Aoi, Eita, Tamaki Hiroshi, Horikita Maki, Matsuda Shota...
This drama will run for the whole year. Its on NHK. And its star studded. But it looks boring. And committing to a drama for a year... I could bare stand the normal 10 episodes unless there's a hottie in the drama.

Starring: Karina, Hiraoka Yuta...
This drama sounds sad. I think Karina stars as a mentally challenged woman who fell in love with another mentally challenged man who died after impregnating the woman. See, it sounds sad. T_T

Nodame Cantabile SP
Starring: Ueno Juri, Tamaki Hiroshi, Eita, Mizukawa Asami, Saeko, Koide Keisuke, WENTZ EIJI?...
After the events in the drama, eee they go to Paris and stuff happens. This drama SP has 2 episodes. Ah... I dont quite like Ueno Juri but oh well. Since I watched the drama, might as well follow it to the end.

Yukinojo Henge SP
Starring: Hideaki Takizawa, Toda Erika...
This one I am really excited about! There's Toda Erika and Tackey. Tackey will crossdress. This is a period drama where Tackey will play a stage actor who plays female roles. I think women weren't allowed onstage back then or something. And then stuff happens where Tackey will try to seduce Toda Erika's character. Most interesting.

Anmitsu Hime SP
Starring: Inoue Mao, Koide Keisuke, Nakagawa Shoko...
Ehh I like Inoue Mao but Nakagawa Shoko should be taped to a pole and publicly humiliated just because I say so. Nakagawa is the most annoying thing on earth since mosquitoes. Nakagawa's existence in the entertainment biz puzzles me. Nakagawa's existence on earth is a mistake. Someone... take her off my screen forever and ever.

As Yukan Club was the one I looked forward to the most this past season, Hachimitsu to Clover is the one I look forward to the most this coming season.

I am excited. So should everyone be.

Aww... Its like, Ako, Nobu and Nakatsu.

Oh and there will be a "ProDai" special sometime next year, not Winter though. And Pi will also be in a movie for "Kurosagi".

And MatsuJun will be in a movie called "Hana Yori Dango Final". Most probably retaining all the cast. Jun will be in another movie called "Kakushi Torida no San Akunin" with Nagasawa.

Ninomiya has none listed online yet, Aiba - none, Ohno - none and Sho has a movie called "Yatterman" planned for 2009. What about 2008? Arashi! Do something!

That's all about Arashi. They probably will have some projects, just not the winter drama season.

On another note, Johnny's countdown will start in about... 4 hours' time. Its about 7.00 p.m. in Japan. Its 6 p.m. now.

Happy New Year? xD
