Upcoming Japanese Drama Recap Project!

Hi all, looks like most of the fall jdrama will start next week. What drama will you be watching? I'm thinking of starting a recap team on Vingle for Jdrama. The recappers will be those who know Japanese and Chinese (since Chinese sub is out pretty fast, recapper can watch it and write recap from the Chinese sub). But those who don't speak the language can also help by doing screencapture of the drama or help spread the words through Facebook or Tumblr. If you know Japanese or Chinese and love Japanese Drama please join the team :) If there's a drama you want to volunteer for (be it recap, screencap, post photos or spread the words) please comment here.

J-Movie: Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac
If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn’t have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn’t have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn’t have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Mirai, keeps calling her “Chief.” She’d know about her mom’s new family. She’d know about her dad’s fiancée. She never would have met Yuji, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn’t have wanted to kiss him back. But Naomi picked heads. Based on a book of the same name by Gabrielle Zevin, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is a quaint, confusing, but beautiful film starring some of my favorite Japanese actors! Maki Horikita - Naomi Sukuse Yuya Tegoshi - Mirai Hasegawa Kenichi Matsuyama - Yuji Miwa Anton Yelchin - Ace Zuckerman Emma Roberts - Alice Leeds The soundtrack is also AWESOME. (you can listen to the whole soundtrack here) I'm pretty sure the first time I watched this, I was staying up all night because I couldn't sleep. I was probably emotionally and physically tired and this movie just hit me like a ton of bricks. It really helped me out. *sorry don't have subs for the trailer ㅠㅠ* I haven't read the book, but it's on my list! Has anyone else seen this or want to watch it?

[Fall 2012] PRICELESS
~Aru Wake Needaro, Namon!~
Trailer: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNDUxNTkwMDQ0.html Kimura Takuya portraying a man who is walking at the bottom of his life! Kindaichi Fumio (Kimura) is a popular and friendly office worker at his company, but for some reason the top brass of his company aren’t too fond of him. One day he is suddenly being faced with a crime he can’t remember that he committed and gets chased out from his position. In the blink of an eye he becomes penniless, hopeless, and homeless. However, he happens to meet two children who have no money just like him and thanks them as he learns how to survive in the world without money. Despite this time of adversity, he keeps on plunging forward and never loses his positive attitude. He’s not only one going through a major change. His unreliable boss (Nakai) and the plain female accountant (Karina) gradually start to get influenced by Fumio for the better as well. ‘PRICELESS’ is a heartwarming comedy about a man who is struggling to get back on his feet after reaching the absolute bottom in his life. Kimura and Nakai have already worked together for the movie ‘HERO’ (2007), but Karina is a new name on the list of supporting actresses. He seems to be very enthusiastic about this drama and the Olympics inspired him to make great teamwork his top priority for this project. It will be interesting to see whether the viewers will be able to feel the great teamwork and chemistry on screen as well.
[Fall 2012] Ooku ~Tanjou~ (Arikoto – Iemitsu Hen)
Definitely will watch this! Trailer: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNDUzMjU3MzMy.html?firsttime=0 – Start: October 12th – – Air Time: 22:00 – – Directors: Kaneko Fuminori, Watase Akihiko, and Fujie Yoshimasa – – Script: Kamiyama Yumiko – – Original: ‘Ooku’ by Yoshinaga Fumi – – Cast: Sakai Masato, Tabe Mikako, Tanaka Koki, Hirayama Hiroyuki, Naito Takashi, and Aso Yumi – – Theme Song: “DEEPNESS” by MISIA – # The Ooku series continues and this time focuses on the pure love between the former monk Arikoto and Shogun Iemitsu, and the secret how the roles of men and women switched. ‘Ooku’ is set during the Edo period of Japan, in an alternate history where a mysterious disease that affects only males has resulted in a sharply decreasing population of men and women overwhelmingly outnumber the male population. Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu already passed away as well, but a head of Ooku (inner chambers of a shogun’s castle), Kasuga no Tsubone (Aso) keeps the bloodline alive by raising Iemitsu’s daughter (Tabe) as the next Shogun Iemitsu. At the age of 13, she was attacked by her own bodyguard who tried to rape her. This incident ended with her killing him with his own sword and her shutting away her heart. Now Iemitsu is 16 years old. Kasuga no Tsubone threatens the the monk Arikoto (Sakai) and makes him return to secular life. Together with his disciple (Tanaka), they are forced to serve as the pages for Iemitsu. After seeing Iemitsu for the first time, Arikoto can’t believe that Shogun Iemitsu is actually a young girl. Arikoto himself is an open-minded and always composed man, but the continued cruel treatment by Kasuga no Tsubone begins to hurt his feelings. However, he knows the huge burden Iemitsu is carrying on her shoulders and wants to devote himself to serving her as best as he can. The drama covers the volumes 2 through 4 of the original manga, while the upcoming movie ‘Ooku ~Eien~ (Emonnosuke – Tsunayoshi Hen)’ will cover the volumes 4 through 6.
