The original plan was to either write about my top 5 male voice or top 5 American Band. I couldn’t decide which one to write first…however, when Nat remind us that this November Hello Japan Mini Challenge is about top 5 of anything from Japan, I came to a decision that I will do a top 5 Japan related post. The other two top 5 will have to wait till next month.

I know exactly what I want to write for my top 5 from Japan…it’s my favorite Japanese Dorama of all time. I know that this topic probably won’t get many comments sharing their version of top 5 as not many people watch Dorama like I do.
Dorama (ドラマ) actually comes from the word Drama. You can also call it as TV series. Some call it as Japanese Soap Opera, but I refuse to call Dorama as Soap Opera because Dorama never extend to LOOOOOONG episodes like soap opera. Unlike other Asian TV series, such as from Korea or Taiwan, Japanese Dorama rarely extends to more than 12 episodes. There are few Dorama that have more episodes but mostly only until 12 episodes. That short episode is one of the reasons I like Dorama. The other reason is the story, Dorama has wide variety of stories…not merely about love and family conflicts.
My favorites are never about love It is really difficult to choose as I like most Dorama I have seen.
Let’s move on to the list, shall we Read more of this post
I love this dorama (Japanese Drama) so much!! I decided to write in 2 languages, in Indonesian Bahasa and in English. Untuk bahasa Indonesia, klik link diatas.
Any human being, in order to make life shine is prepared
to have an ending with dead.
And if that were the case,
in reality your power might be God’s hand
Ryuzaki Shinji’s word for Aoi Ryosuke.
Orthros no Inu is another dorama that I bought simply out of hunch. I’m not a fan of both Takizawa Hideaki (Takky) or Nishikido Ryo. I read the summary on the back cover and a strong urge to buy it rise in me. I didn’t have enough money when I saw it, but my feeling said I have to buy and by collecting small money from my wallet, I bought it.
And for the hundredths time, I have to say thank you to my ‘feeling’ because I have just found a great dorama that definitely become one of my favorite all time doramas.
I rarely watch serious drama because it usually turns into boredom, I really like funny dorama that have moral value, good story and lots of good laugh. Orthros no Inu is far from being a funny dorama and yet it manages to make me totally absorb in its story. And to tell you to the truth, I haven’t felt as excited as this since The X Files (my all time favorite TV series). I fell in love with Orthros no Inu.
This dorama was aired on 2009. The main casts are Takizawa Hideaki as Ryuzaki Shinji, Nishikido Ryo as Aoi Ryosuke and Mizukawa Asami as Hasebe Nagisa. I’ve seen Takky’s dorama several time, he is cute but he never really steal all my attention. This is my 2nd Nishikido Ryo Dorama, when I saw him in 1 Liter of Tears, he slipped my mind…nothing special…But when I see him in Orthros no Inu, I fell in love with him…He is so cute!! Hontou ni Kawaii. I think it is because he really into his character.
