Guide to JDrama
February 13, 2013 by gr33nhippo |


As the majority of us here are only into anime, I felt like creating an introductory guide on j-dramas for those interested. With anime, when you need another show to watch it's as easy as scrolling through myanimelist's recommendations and rankings. With drama though, I've found that it's not nearly as simple. Similar communities exist, but the results won't be much of a close fit. Instead of relying on the web, all the dramas I've watched have come through personal recommendations from friends. I did pick up HanaKimi  after seeing a lot of people recommend it for those who liked Hana Yori Dango - and well, that only lasted about ten minutes.

I'd like to provide some help for the members that want to give drama a shot. I'd hate for you to get a bad recommendation and be left with a bad impression. Here are some of my personal favorites. If you'd like a more personalized recommendation, just leave a comment! I'll try to give a recommendation, but I'm still relatively new to j-drama myself. ^^

AKB48 Guide

You know of them, but do you know them? Like me, you may have always just turned a blind eye to what you saw as excessive. Truth is though, there is a lot more behind AKB48 than just a party of ladies in school uniforms; and once you start to understand their surprisingly complex system of member and fan management, you might find yourself intrigued. Perhaps not in the music, but in the members.
