Why you Should Watch the J-Drama Trick — 4 Comments

  1. Haha that one is pretty great! I think it’s from Trick 2.

    It’s the small things that get me excited: like the very beginning of No Con Kid, when Reiji wonders what the beautiful girls name is – and Kido tells him his name, because he happens to stand there :)

    • I remember that! That drama had a lot of great scenes. It was just corny enough to be funny and a must watch for anyone who grew up on arcade games.

  2. Hah, I haven’t watched Trick (whichever season that was) in at least three years, but I knew exactly which scene that was in the first second because even now it still pops up in my head from time to time. I couldn’t stop at one scene and these are only scenes I could find on YouTube, but five is better than one and anyway you shouldn’t feel limited to picking just one thing if you have enough rope or duct tape.

    You need to know what they’re saying, but I couldn’t find a subbed clip. This is probably my favorite scene in Legal High:–hem8

    I think Legal High is also a great gateway drama because it presents itself as a lighter, fun and simple show, then cranks up the acting and writing to blow you away.

    Okay, maybe fifteen minutes isn’t a “scene”, but Change is a great show and episode 5 in its entirety may be the most perfectly crafted piece of comedy I’ve ever seen:

    The cinematography, the facial expressions, body language, dialogue, everyone in every shot is doing something to make you laugh. It’s like watching a clock work, except the clock is made of comedy. Plus look at all the Japanese cultural tidbits you can see in just that clip!

    Yuusha Yoshihiko and his party encounter a bandit:

    Takeuchi Yuko yelling at someone until they cry is a special thing:

    Why the best things come in fives, Unubore 5:

    • I do have to say that the dance here in the final episode of うぬぼれ刑事 is legendary! A great end to a great drama.
