Brief Thoughts on Jdramas: Part One

So this is a little feature I’ve put together where I give info and my opinion on different jdramas (and occasionally kdramas) that I’ve watched over the years. I’m just going to do three at a time in alphabetical order.

"This is an A+ show about water polo"

“This is an A+ show about water polo”

Suikyuu Yankees Episode 9 Recap/Review: Model Behavior

So I was thinking after last week’s episode, that there’s a distinct lack of yankees in a show that has yankees in the title.

With that thought in mind, let’s see how this episode turns out.

Okay y’all, I’ve been fighting off a cold all week and sadly have no leeks to cure me. But just like the Mizu Tama boys do, I keep on rolling. Today’s episode theme is “Never give up!

How I started watching Japanese dramas

Everybody has a story of firsts. Like maybe the first time they drive a car or the first time they try a new food. There’s even a popular American sitcom called How I Met Your Mother detailing the events leading up to the main character meeting his future wife for the first time.

So since I like to tell stories and I’m currently blogging about Japanese dramas, I figured I should make a post about how I got sucked into dramas in the first place. No, it’s not super exciting, and no, it’s certainly not as long as How I Met Your Mother (The show lasted for nine seasons!) but I hope maybe it’ll be of interest to someone out there.
