>>38175090Shinhanin Flag 2Shijuukara
Where can I watch Japanese TV streams for free?Help, I'm poor btw
Any lesser known ghost movies like Ring or Juon? Preferably (but not necessarly) from 90s or 2000s. I have seen most of obvious ones.
>>38175249Joyuurei (1996, aka Don't Look Up)Ring TV version (1995, on Youtube)Pray (2005)Death Train (2004)
>>38175249The Ghost of Yotsuya (1959)Fureru shita (1980)Haunted School (1995)Don’t Look Up (1996)Tomie (1998)Dark Water (2002)Tales of Terror from Tokyo and All Over Japan (2004-2005)Noroi: The Curse (2005)Torihada: The Movie (2012)
>>38175090Still waiting for opinions on this
>>38175407Form your own opinion.
>>38176298Yamada really seems to enjoy experimenting with different kinds of filming concepts these days, more than basic movies. Also looks more like Japanese Jesus every time I see him. Want to check this omnibus out
>>38176298I still can't believe what happened to his arm
>>38176298Yamada could have been the GOAT actor if he wasn’t a manlet
>>38179089He should use elevator shoes.
>>38176692I follow directors and screenplay writers more than actors, was he on anything worth watching in the recent years?
>>38179711Well, I also mean that he has been branching out into directing and producing. For example, he made one of 3 movies in the omnibus flick Zokki (2021) along with Naoto Takenaka and Takumi Saitohhttps://www.imdb.com/title/tt14444620/He also won the Ikemental series of Documental on Amazon Prime, and was in a cool series called Takayuki Yamada's Tokyo Akabane (2015), which is like a pseudo-documentary of him hanging out in that area, from the same director as Kinnikuman: The Lost Legend https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4333964/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_32Also was the main character in Naked Director on Netflix, too.Interesting point I found about Tetsuaki Matsue, the director of the Akabane and Kinnikuman pseudo-documentary series, here is a video of him getting attacked on stage at an Ikebukuro greeting event by the main actor from a previous movie, for heavily power harassing them during filming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3O4oeP6dlM
>>38179411Should’ve done that 17 years ago, it’s too late now
>>38180123Very interesting, didn't know he was directing now. I like mockumentaries so Takayuki Yamada's Tokyo Akabane is for me.
>>38175016It's amazing how Twitter still tries to cancel him (a few days ago) and he's still coming out unscathed.
>>38179411He already does
>>38176147 I just wanted to make sure it’s good before I waste my time watching something without subs and it ends up being bad. I would watch something raw if it’s good and no one is subbing it
I think Haru's character has amnesia and her friends covered up a crime for her sake.
>>38185781Was ep 1 good? Worth watching?
>>38175407I don't think anybody here is going to be watching this. This season looks kinda bad so I'll probably pick something at random.
>>38184074Stop watching with subs. Start learning Japanese.
excited just for yoshitaka yuriko https://www.nhk.or.jp/dramatopics-blog/8000/459619.html but>female activistswere there really such people in the taisho era?
>>38187617Ito Noe was one of a kind back in the pre-war era. I wonder if they're gonna adapt her brutal death though.
>>38187617>EitaI will watch
>>38187673I just read her wiki page, wow I wonder too. Besides her death, her life was really interesting
>>38180123>Interesting point I found about Tetsuaki Matsue, the director of the Akabane and Kinnikuman pseudo-documentary series, here is a video of him getting attacked on stage at an Ikebukuro greeting event by the main actor from a previous movie, for heavily power harassing them during filmingWhew. Him being this calm and collected despite having his donger exposed to all is amazing.
>>38175090What the fuck is this?
>>38187345Yes, the first episode is good.
hey /jp/,im looking for a video file for a japanese movie I saw on a delta flight maybe 5 or 6 years ago. It's this movie: https://asianwiki.com/25_Nijyu-GoIm trying to find a version of it with english subtitles, as the one I saw on the plane had them. Do any of you guys happen to know where I could find it?
Will Toyoda make a high profile movie again?
>>38188535Toyoda's latest film『戦慄せしめよ』will debut in 2 weeks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fks1zRyGpC8Seems like it's a musical film with no dialogues. Loved the musical performances he directed in his documentary Planetist so I'm personally looking forward to this especially because it looks like it got similar aesthetics to his Resurrection Trilogy.I think he's creating smaller and more experimental films due to the restrictions of the COVID situation in Japan. This film was shot in December 2020.
>>38188466I couldn't find it with English subs, only raws.
>>38192122>read the synopsis >sounds like a boring, poorly-written story with a tired theme and full of ham actingI will now watch it despite everything for Hamabe Minami
>>38192343That's the spirit.
>>38185781I'm on the fence here. I dislike Haru's """acting""" but the story sounds interesting.
>>38192909>Look it up>It's by the mangaka who made 7 Seeds Might actually be good
>>38192973Golden time dramas are almost always boring, I have my doubts about this one.
What happened to all the corny but comfy romance shows we had in the 90's? Is there anything recent similar to Last Christmas, Love Generation, Tokyo Love Story etc?
>>38193533You can't replicate the charm of the 90's romance dramas, it's impossible. There's some good late Heisei romance dramas but none of them can beat the charm of the 90's.
>>38194188Was it good? I want to watch it because of Nao
>>38194347I liked it. It's not for everyone, and it will make you cringe (a lot). The final scene somewhat retroactively slightly changes the flavour of the whole movie, making it less cringy (and more interesting, in my opinion), but also sadder.I didn't know the main actress but if you like her that may be a plus, the movie is centred on the guy but she's in most of the scenes.
>>38175249>>38175288>>38175330Amazing lists. I can addJu-Rei the Uncanny (2004)Pulse (2001)Retribution (2006)
Any movies about tsunamis?
>>38195122If you're looking for those actiony Hollywood kinds of big waves then I don't think there is. Most of them are about the aftermath of the disasters. Fukushima 50 was a fine movie but I'm pretty sure it's not what you're looking for.
>>38196538This should have never existed, fuck Fuji TV.
>>38170414I liked that one a lot and wished the dokkiri was longer. I thought Saito would lash out at Ota for his supposed scandal but surprisingly he was very calm and collected, even told him to apologize to his wife and prioritize his kids. Would love to see other geinins do the exact same dokkiri with the affair scandal theme.
>>38196537>Kaiji at home:
watch this! watch this! watch this!
>>38197568I read the synopsis last night and didn’t like what I read. Is there something special besides Kikuchi Momoko?
>>38197821its the best show I've ever seen in my life
>>38175090highschool for ikemen only...
>>38175090shiraishi sei and that's about it
>>38200542How’s the drama? Thought about watching it but chose Hamabe’s drama instead
https://nyaa.si/view/1478392 shufu maison is now finished
>>38201922The characters (especially Kousei Yuki) were unique but overall the story was very boring. A drama made for teenage girls, not even adult fujos.
It was decent I guess
>>38202511First Love is one of Miike's most easy movies to follow. One thing I love about it is Miike's darkly hilarious way of slowly unfolding an absolute clusterfuck of a situation of epic proportions just waiting to explode, and it delivers.
>>38202768Somehow I thought that First Love was similar to Tarantino movies
>>38202793Miike has been doing that type of movies just as long as Tarantino and iirc, Tarantino was inspired by Miike's movies. But to your point, it was kinda Tarantino-esque and Coens-esque but ultimately it's own thing. Honestly one of the best movies that year.
>>38200951Not him, but her drama is decent. The story is weird but entertaining. The 2nd episode ended in a funny way.
>>38203123I'm loving Yasuda Ken's role. A person who doesn't utter a word but makes you laugh with his hilarious facial expressions. The interplay between him and Shiraishi is funny.
>>38206448Bad remake even if the story was different from the Heisei version. Suzuki Honami as Akana Rika is too iconic, no one can compete with her as Akana so Ishibashi Shizuka felt so wrong acting as her. Also the guy doing Kanchi's role was awkward, it's an insult to Oda Yuji from the Heisei version. I pushed through to the end but the casting overall just felt so wrong to me and the story felt thin and weak. The Heisei version also had many flaws that stand out when you watch it now, but this Reiwa version makes you realize that Tokyo Love Story is a product of its time and shouldn't be remade at all or else it will lose all the charms it had.
>>38204726Summer Uika is my tarentofu
>>38200951it was lotta fun, the budget seems high so it doesn't abuse filters, would recommend it
The new Abe Hiroshi drama started today
I always ask this every year. So what was the Kimetsu no Yaiba(or most talked) Jdrama of last year?I'm just looking for recs. Not really into jdramas Also thanks for the last year rec "Hajimete Koi wo Shita Hi ni Yomu Hanashi" fun show but too yumedream for me
>>38210234Dragon Zakura 2 was the most popular and trending drama last year.
>>38210418I still haven't watched it yet, I regret not watching it while it was airing. Now I find it hard to bring myself to watch it after knowing many elements spoilers especially Gakkii.
>>38208574For me, it's Hikorohii.
>>38210008It was boring. That time slot's dramas are simply ain't good.
>>38210234>I'm just looking for recs. Not really into jdramas Saiai
>>38210234Tengoku to Jigoku: Psychona Futari
What crime/police/yakuza dramas/movies would you guys recommend? I'm generally new to dramas and haven't seen much from the genre. I like the Yakuza games and recently watched My Name (Korean drama) and I'm craving for similar things to watch.Bonus for being filmed in 24 fps instead of 30 (like many TV dramas seem to be) and if it's on Netflix/Prime or was released on BD in Europe (in the case of movies).
>>38215953Check out these movieshttps://pastebin.com/fRtcw074
>>38215953I don't know about Netflix but you can find these dramas onlineStrawberry NightGalileoOdoru Daisousasen UnfairShinzanmonoKeizoku
>>38197568Thanks, I hated it
It's my favorite movie of all time. Anything similar to it?
>>38221555Great taste, one of Toyoda's best movies and it's based on a masterpiece manga Matsumoto Taiyou.Try this movie:Kids Return (1996) by Kitano TakeshiIt has similar vibes (especially to the original Aoi Haru manga which was different a bit from Toyoda's adaptation).
>>38221555Ping Pong the movieHolyland tv showIkebukuro West Gate ParkBut I think there's nothing really the same as it.
>>38221555If you want films that deal with teens, young adults and adolescence>Solanin (2010)>14 no Yoru (2016)>Shino Cannot Say Her Own Name (2018)Nothing about delinquents though with the same atmosphere as Blue Spring. That film is just so unique.
>>38218603Poor Yamauchi is getting bullied again
>>38213802Finished Saiai last night and I gotta say it was one compelling drama that had my absolute undivided attention from start to finish.
>>38187545Easier said than done, Inoki-San
>>38194188is this anywhere else besides avistaz?
>>38224017You can stream it online I guess
>>38210418Do I need to watch the first season before watching this?
>>38224700no, there are a few cameos and references from season 1 for nostagiafags and that's about it
>>38224700No, it's essentially a new series with completely different approach to its story and direction. Gets messy near the end but still enjoyable overall.
>>38224700I don’t see a reason for not watching it first. Paravi even streamed it for Generation Z Japs who were not born yet or were still too young to watch it in 2005 like you so you should definitely watch it too. It’s genuinely a good drama, anyone who’s interested in Japanese dramas must watch it honestly.
>>38225055Honestly, S1 didn't age well and I watched it back in the day. It feels like an average by the numbers manga adaptation despite the amazing cast. Well, at least it had a romance subplot which S2 lacked, if you're into that I guess.
>>38225120Dramas don't age, they're products of their time. You do though, you grow out of them. If it was good back then, which it was, then it's good today. Meanwhile your taste changes overtime.
>>38225236I guess, it was new to me when I first watched it but it's nothing special now. But this doesn't mean that there aren't better shows that are still similar to S1 of Dragon Zakura, as they're actually still enjoyable today.
>>38220798what didn't you like about it?
>>38225714First strike is the fact that it's a Hello Project idols drama, the idols aren't cute. Then the story is extremely boring. Not just boring, I didn't understand what the story is about. I couldn't relate to the main characters.
>>38225954did you watch it with subs?
>>38225967Don’t need subs.
I need a new terrace house
>>38226389It will never happen
>>38226428I know, I don't even want a new one, I couldn't finish the second show. I just want a new one that feels as good as the first one. I have the movie saved until I can't resist anymore.
>>38214349God, this drama’s last few episodes sucked balls. A shame because it was very good until it went downhill halfway.
How many of you are JOP or EOP?
>>38226811It's pretty obvious the large majority of thread regulars here know Japanese already, some even living there and just watch TV regularly while posting here in real time. I feel like this is a shock to the newfags that come in thinking it's like other fandoms on this site but you have to understand how niche of an interest this is.Japan had no interest in selling their shows to the west, especially streaming rights as they feel like it's worth a lot more than something reasonable. It's why official streams never caught on and some services even went defunct. This however doesn't mean that dorama fans stopped watching the shows.Japanese movies are always popular with normies but those aren't really the focus of this thread. Not to mention there are better places for those types of discussion as what people like to discuss revolves around the craft of film, which is why it attracts normalfags.
>>38226351clearly you do
I want to see the next episode already.
THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH MANGA ADAPTATIONS. FUCK YOU KITANO, YOU OLD FUCK.
>>38227736I never liked this kamen rider
>>38227077I just want to watch some shows with cute girls in them...
>>38227077holy fucking autism
>>38228392Even if the next episode will have stuff like this?>>38228015The only thing I know about KR is that their actors become dorama actors.
>>38227142Don’t know what made you think that but I don’t. I simply disliked it, that’s all,
>>38226389What happened to this show?
>>38227963Most of manga adaptations are drizzling shit
>>38227736The manga was a good read
>>38228131It’s not my only reason but it’s a hell of an incentive
>>38174977I tried going back to the older threads to save dramas and movies webms but when I click on thread #58's link it shows an error. Are all the archived threads dead?
>>38229557>thread #58I think that one died in 5 posts.https://warosu.org/jp/?task=search2&ghost=yes&search_text=&search_subject=japanese+Movie+and+TV+General&search_username=&search_tripcode=&search_email=&search_filename=&search_datefrom=&search_dateto=&search_op=all&search_del=dontcare&search_int=dontcare&search_ord=new&search_capcode=all&search_res=post
>>38229821That's weird. The thread not getting archived is weirder. I'm relieved that the rest of the archived threads are still alive though, thought they were gone.
>>38229517I have to finish Girl Gun Lady sometime.Which dramas with Sei would you recommend?
>>38230534Not him but watch Dakara Watashi wa Oshimashita.
>>38229557>>38229821I encountered the same error with the same thread a month ago while reading the older threads and thought warosu was acting up. I was retarded for not searching them via the subject.
>>38232637From her new drama, right? How was it?
>>38226389>>38226428watch "Single's Inferno"
>>38221555The closest in terms of atmosphere would probably be the rest of Toyoda's work, 9 Souls in particular or Pornostar. But from a similar ballpark, on top of what other anons have rec'd try Sion Sono's Himizu, Tetsuya Nakashima's The World of Kanako and Shunji Iwai's All About Lily Chou-Chou.
>>38232637How was it? Still waiting for subs
>>38234878Hamabe was cute but the content of the drama is very thin, even if it's only the first episode (the next episodes will probably follow the same thing), it was just too shallow. It's like a Mito Komon medical drama that ends with Hamabe making diagnosis. Also she's someone with amnesia but no medical knowledge, right? She's too young for that. If she was at least in her 30s, the setting would be more convincing.
>>38230534I''s Yappari Oishii Keigi and the new one, Shimobeethe rest are kinda meh
https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/9ca22220b6b6c900b39c96b05580aeb5434f5378>Ayase Haruka to star in Fuji TV spring Getsuku drama 'Motokare no Igonjou' based on novel by Shinkawa Hotate which won the grand prize in last year's 19th "Kono Mystery ga Sugoi!" Awards. She plays a strong-willed lawyer whose ex-boyfriend recently died, leaving a mysterious will bequeathing his entire fortune to the person who murdered him. This will be the first time for Ayase to play a lead role in a Getsuku drama.
>>38236715>Gestuku dramaI sleep>Ayase HarukaI will now watch this drama regardless of how shit it will be
>>38236715Today I will remind them of last year’s Ayase Haruka’s dramahttps://warosu.org/jp/thread/S33865230#p33893347The history will repeat itself.
>>38238304It's worth it for evil Ayase.
>>38229065a cast member killed herself after getting hate online for one scene in the show. Then it came to light that everything in the show was scripted (if that wasn't obvious already) so the show was even more responsible for what happened. Apparently she had asked to leave the show a couple of times before the incident but her management forced her to stay.
>>38238344She was so fucking hot in this drama
>>38236715I see Ayase Haruka I download
>>38230274>That webmThe dilapidated shanty town of manga adaptations. Thou shan't keep watching them.
>>38236715Hmmmm, sounds interesting on paper. It being an adaptation of an award-winning novel makes me have high hopes.
>>38230708This drama is very very good.
>>38239544Since it was revealed that Morishita Yoshiko was the writer I was pretty interested in it and it delivered as I expected. The drama had an impact on me personally. I used to look down on the idolniggers who plague the catalog but after watching this drama I have come to think that their hobby might not be so bad. Whatever it is, it’s good to have something you’re passionate about.
>>38226389Watch MONSTER HOUSE and MONSTER IDOL.
>>38230708Is there a Blu-ray of this anywhere? Or at least an alive torrent? Those on nyaa are all dead.
>>38241229DL @ dramahd.
>>38241204ya heard me, kiddo
>>38240460It's a great show for people who see themselves are nerds or otaku. The dialogue between the otaku friends cut deep.
>>38241248Didn't know that site, thanks.
>>38236259>Hamabe was cute butNot buts. That’s the only factor that matters here, nothing else does.
>>38244113Fukushi Souta can't act for shit.
>>38244113I see Fukushi Sota, I close the video
>>38241058>KurochanOne of today's Suiyoubi's setsu is involving him and his new apartment.
>>38244113Doesn’t really look like my kind of show. Also is the fact Fukushi is starring as a high-school teacher from space a Fourze reference or am I reading to much into it?
>>38236259>Hamabe was cute. (full stop)ftfy
>>38244113>starring Sota Fukushi>remake of a gook drama>Amazon Prime VideoThree strikes. You’re out.
>>38246142he probably got cast because he looks similar to the original korean actor
apparently the japanese film festival online for this year was presented yesterday but i can't find any info online
>>38249046https://jff.jpf.go.jp/watch/jffonline2022/It says it will start next month
>>38249360thank you. That's a nice line up
Fuck you Fukushi Sota is the better Nakagawa Taishi
>>38249438I recommend Rashomon by Kurosawa Akira and Time of Eve by Yoshiura Yasuhiro if you haven't already watched them.
>>38249534I thought they were the same person back then.
Anyone watching Tetsu Ota Michiko? I watched the first episode, but to be honest I just feel like most of these slice of life travel and appreciate the sights and food shows just feel played out and formulaic, and the "comfiness" just feels really manufactured and inane now. Haven't really watched anything of Tina's before, but I knew of her from the one Tofubeats song.https://youtu.be/MJqAhbhffpU
>>38249790It's like a Kodoku no Gourmet railroad version. There is an introduction to station lunches, and you can see the unadorned vicinity of the station. This drama is TV Tokyo going back to their roots of comfy late-night shows that are often revolve around traveling and food and I love it tbqh. The lead actress is a cutie so that's a plus.
>>38251780yeah, i'm thinking kinola is back on the menurino
>>38251780Looks like gym is actually paying off for Kurochan. Those are some toned bicep and legs after all those fat.
>>38251878It's possible for him to go for the Mutou Keiji bod if he puts his heart on it.
>>38251780Kuro-chan's Run For Money is funnier than I thought.
>>38251984Funniest thing was when he lost his mind after coming back homehttps://streamable.com/1ap68z
>>38253070S E X
Recommend me an Edo period drama to watch
>>38253070>Yuriyan is fapable nowWhy?
>>38253649Epic Chushingura (1971)It’s very good
My wife is gonna be on thishttps://mobile.twitter.com/dramatokku_mbsHopefully it get subbed
>>38254302IS she going to be fucked by the Exile idol?
>>38253070Yuriyan’s workload increased after losing weight. Don’t think she got this amount of works when she won THE W in 2017.
>>38254302Why does it remind me of this show?
>>38254302>>38254342I like her on Yuru Camp live action. Good to see her getting more works.
>>38254302>Yuno Ohara & Haruka Kudo >airs on the 3rdWell I guess I’ve finally got plans on my birthday for a change
>>38255133You can keep yunoHaruka is mine
this is NOT a bijinshe also can't act for shit
>>38256238As if you can act any better, dont criticize other people when you cant do what theyre doing better than them
LMAOpissed off parushit fan detected
>>38255133>Kudo HarukaI thought you meant the cunny from HKT48.
>>38250812Going to watch episode 2 right now even though I feel like I just might be too jaded to enjoy these shows now that they feel like a dime a dozen, but I'll probably end up watching the entire season anyways.
could anyone recommend any shows or movies with a yandere type of guy?
>>38259472Stalker Nigekirenu AiHimeanoleIma, Yari ni YukimasuLast Friends
>>38259122Need Hanzawa Naoki 3 so much
>>38263099Hanzawa went head-to-head with the government and won, there's no bigger opponent to justify a third season.
>>38264524Hanzawa vs (((Global Banks)))
I love the Sonatine main theme song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSLlX4czsZA
>>38251984How the hell do you fall asleep in this situation?
>>38264524is that what happens in the novels? if i remember correctly, s1+s2 wasn't a full adaption
>>38269058They've been filming it for hours, mostly sitting in that same place, high tension and he ate a few hours prior. Sakai must have been very exhausted.
>>38269455I never read the novels but I wouldn't be surprised if the second season was especially an original story different from the novels.
>>38223601As Inoki always says: 元気があれば何でもできる
>>38269058He's been sitting around for 12 hours or so, and they started filming at 2 or something, so it's past midnight. It's pretty easy to fall asleep while you're waiting for someone else to fall into a deeper sleep.
>>38270883HOLY FUCKING DIMES BROTHER
Can anybody tell me what TV show is that? Some Asian subreddit was butthurt about it.
My wife is also going to be in thishttps://twitter.com/2_outfullbase
>>38271482This actress isn’t being pushed enough.
>>38266801>>38268665The thing about Joe Hisaishi's stuff is, most of the music in the film is somehow much better than the ones in the album release for some reason and he never seem to released the original one.
Oshii Mamoru's secret movie which was screened 3 years ago at some small film festival and never elaborated what it was is gonna get a one-night screening at another small film festival next month. A trailer was released yesterday, the movie's title is Chii Tomodachihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwHx2SnY84M&t=95sSeems like it shares the same story concept and characters with his 2021 anime Vlad Love. I hope it somehow gets leaked online.
>>38276121Slapstick and yuri?
