Recently, I became an ardent fan of Japanese dramas. After years of
watching melodramatic Hong Kong and overacted Taiwanese dramas,
I was very happy when I discovered Japanese dramas. They are generally
refreshing in plot and the actors often deliver admirable performances.
My first drama was Emi Wakui's "Tokyo Cinderella Story." The
drama was highly enjoyable and I went on to see "Long Vacation,"
"Tokyo Love Story," and "Under the Same Roof", but I did not
become a true fan until Takashi Sorimachi's "GTO." Besides
Sorimachi being high on the drool factor, "GTO" was truly unique
and funny. After "GTO," I felt compelled to watch other dramas with
Sorimachi in it, such as "Beach Boys" and "Virgin Road."
Ever since, I've discovered a wide range of great dramas and mouthwatering
actors like Yutaka Takenouchi and Takashi Kashiwabara (but Sorimachi still
remains my favorite actor).
If you are
into j-dramas and would like to trade titles with me, by all means contact
me. I prefer to trade with U.S. residents only, since international
shipping can be quite a hassle. Currently, I am looking for copies
of Takashi Sorimachi's "Missenan," "Tsubasa no Kudaisai"
(Please Give Me Wings), and Yuji Oda's "Odoru Daisossassen" TV episodes.
My j-drama collection so far (CS indicates with Chinese subitles
with English subtitles):
||Takashi Sorimachi, Yutaka Takenouchi
||TV 1-12, Special

you have j-dramas in your possession and would like to trade titles in
my anime collection, that is fine with me too. However, at this time, I
am not interested in strictly trading one anime title for another anime
In my spare time, I watch a lot of anime too. I am always excited
whenever I discover a new series which I have not noticed before! I would
read more manga too if it were not so expensive to collect entire series.
These are the anime titles I have in my current collection (I'm working
on making it more extensive!):
||TV episodes 1-13
||TV episodes 1-36
|Ghost in the Shell
||OVAs 1-6, Final Movie
