I love him :lol: He's like a younger Jin Akanishi (but you don't like him either though right :P)

but this season? Not many exciting looking Johnny less drama's actually.
Well there is Rinne no Ame
The lead actor Yamamoto becomes the older brother of a mentally disabled younger brother (Seto). The older brother learns that the younger brother is being physically abused at work by the factory manager. The older brother ends up murdering the manager

Jin is the only one of them I can really stand to see in a drama, not that I dislike the others, they're all good singers, but Jin is probably one of the best Japanese actors I've seen so the rest of those guys can go suck it while Jin does the acting in the shows. Well... that Matsumoto Jun guy is probably another best of those Japanese Johnny guys though, he has impressive acting skills.

It's funny... I dislike all of the popular guys. Akanishi, Matsumoto, Yamada, Yamapi, and even Ikuta (even tho' he's friggin' hot).

I'm a huuuuge Jin fangirl. He's my favorite male Japanese celebrity. Jin is probably the most talented member of Johnny's period (and his anti idolness and partying kind of make me like him even more :sweat )

Ikuta needs to be debuted, like yesterday.

Oh and I feel the need to do this every time Matsujun is brought up

Everyone knew Jin was a perv so LOVEJUICE and Pinky were kind of expected, but this.. :lol:
And we don't really have a jpop thread, do we?

I'm on episode 3 of Tokyo Dogs. Mizushima and Shun are amazing together.
There should be an upload of the first episode of Hidarime Tantei EYE soon. I hear Yamada gets punched in the face twice, so maybe you should check it out Pasta!

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon sucks, but I love how it tries to be all serious and dark, too bad for the shitty acting.

It looks like it starts February 7th, if I can read correctly. On top of that, I have no idea if someone'd actually sub this thing, but OH DO I EVER HOPE SO.

While I only having a slight interest in Glee, I have to admit that this is pretty epic.

Please elaborate.

Edit: Or do you mean that Japan is showing the American version instead of creating their own? If that's the case, then Japan sucks major ass. Boo!

My guess is that they are showing the American version. I would presume it would be dubbed.

Yup. It's the American version with a dub.

Suck. I like the idea of a whole new series.

Anyway, thanks, Topless Robot, for not making this very clear. (He only stated that it was a commercial for "Japanese Glee.")

... I'm willing to sit through season 1 of Glee again (I liked it) but even more so if I get a look at the dub cast. I'm a girl who goes out looking for Japanese dubbed Doctor Who episodes all because Maaya Sakamoto voices Rose.

So did you guys hear about the LA Gantz movie? It looks like they are going to be true to the source material so it should be interesting to say the least. It also has a large box office draw. A member of Arashi is playing Kei.

GAHHHHH! You jerks nobody told me Real Clothes' soundtrack was composed by Ryota Nozaki? THE Ryota Nozaki. The man that deserves a throne of piano keys and bitches? He's my favorite freaking dance jazz artist ever. When I read that my heart literally freaking stopped lol I'm such a nerd. He's my favorite nu-jazz musician, I just bought the freaking bootleg DVD of the show :lol:
