Dear community members,

This is a first notice, just to keep you updated about some things regarding the community.

As you surely have noticed already, lj changed its TOS, which causes a lot of people to break down the tents and go search for a new home. It's a slow process but exactly the same is happening to my personal journal and will also happen to this community!

What does this mean?


Well, that means, we are moving to Dreamwidth (dw) and whoever wants to go with me, is warmly invited to come along. :)
I already created a dw account which I will use from now on to manage this community's counter part on dw, and just initiated the import of this community to dw, which will probably take some time. This means that basically the whole content of the lj community will be copied to dw, so nothing should be lost. Until this process is finished and I had the time to set things up nicely over there, it will propably be a huge mess, so for the time being I ask you to not search and join the dw community yet.
I will keep you updated about the dw community's status as well as any further steps!

What will happen to SoS here on lj?


Once the community has moved, there will be a period of time during which people will be able to apply for membership for the dw community. However, when people have moved too and/or after a certain amount of time, I will most likely delete the lj counterpart of the community. So please make sure that you create a dw account in the meantime, if you haven't already, so that moving will be easy for you too!

Alright, that's it for now. If you have any questions, I'll try my best to answer them, so just drop them in the comments down below.

Thanks for your time and have a nice day, read you soon!

Hello everybody,

I hope, you're doing all fine!

I do have something small for you today, please check out my special voice message below.



*Correction: Of course, the JLPT is an INTERnational language test, not national, sorry, I said the wrong word. ^^"

Bye,

Hello everybody, today I'm here to introduce a befriended fansub community to you – yukkurifansubs.

The group was founded by owner tilmon in April last year (so, happy late anniversary!) who maintains it together with tbscreenrider, bakamitaii and mystical_powers.

Yukkurifansubs' goal is, to bring subs for doramas (featuring our dear Seto Koji ^.~) that are not subbed yet to us j-dorama fans. Their focus lies on the quality of subs as well as on giving fans the possibility to discuss the dorama they are currently subbing!


Thus, for this season, yukkurifansubs brings us "Watashi Kekkon Dekinai Janakute, Shinain desu" starring Nakatani Miki (Ghost Writer), Fujiki Naohito (37,5° no Namida), Seto Koji (Lost Days), Omasa Aya (Suikyuu Yankees) and more.

Watashi Kekkon Dekinai.jpg
The TBS dorama, showing on Fridays at 9 pm tells us the story of Tachibana Miyabi (Nakatani Miki) a 39-year old dermatologist. Despite being happy with her carreer, she soon has to find out that to the contrary of her statement that she "can get married but doesn't want to!", indeed wishes to find a partner. Restaurant owner Tokura Seiji (Fujiki Naohito) though tells her blatantly that she's a "romance-impaired" (unpopular female) with three handicaps, namely her beauty, her carreer, and of course age. Miyabi gets angry but when she tries by herself to get close to her former high school crush Sakurai, who is apparently still single too, she fails miserably and decides to seeks Tokura's advice.


Yukkurifansubs points out the fine teamwork among the cast members and I have to say, after watching episode 1, I can agree! (And Koji is so damned cute OMG XD I hope his role will become bigger with the progress of the story!)

If you want to check out their subs, please go here. They already released subs for episode 1 and 2 of the dorama. Thank you for your hard work! The community is member locked, but joining is easy, so please check out this post!

I also highly encourage you to drop your opinion about the first episode here, to be able to exchange your thoughts about it with other fans and increase the fun of enjoying this dorama. There will be more discussion posts with further releases so check them out and don't be shy! =D

Further, you can also find subs and discussion posts for yukkurifansubs' former project "Mother Game" here!

Happy dorama watching and stay addicted!

Sky


PS: If you are part of a subbing group working on a project currently and want me to advertise for you, please send me a message and I can introduce you here too. I might not be able to provide subs by myself atm, but it would be my pleasure if I can be of help to spread the dorama-love in the dorama fan community! =)

Spring 2016 Kopie.jpg

Hey everybody,

The spring season already started and I'm sure some of you already dived into exploring the variety of new Japanese doramas. However, this is for those who might still be undecided or simply interesting in what I might be thinking about the current season. Of course, I'm highly interested in your opinions too so please don't be shy and drop a comment or add something to other people's comments to start discussions. ^^

Here we go! ^.^/Collapse )

PPS: Please excuse all the typos XD I tried my best to finish this within today because I'm awaiting a guest and so I didn't have the time to re-read everything. Will fix mistakes later on! Thanks.

It's been a while since I shared a full review (it just eats lots of time to write them XD) but since this dorama is only 4 episodes at about half an hour long and I was already able to watch it (and thanks for the watch-along, housekini! ^^/) I can now give you a more detailed picture of it. Please be aware that this review contains spoilers! I try to mark them but since everyone has a different understanding of spoilers, I just wanted to warn you in general.

Kasa wo motanai Aritachi wa in a nutshell

Hashimoto Jun (Kiriyama Ren), a young si-fi writer is threatening to loose popularity. His editor Tateyama (Sakata Masanobu) encourages him to try new things and offers him to submit a love story for a web magazine. Jun isn't really motivated to write something outside of his comfort zone but it's everything he got at the moment. When Jun's childhood friend Murata Keisuke (Kato Shigeaki) suddenly appears, he gets inspired by their talks and gives the romance genre a try. First, his stories are more awkward than romantic but in the end, Jun remembers a story deeper and more meaningful than love and writes down the touching story of a deep friendship, which even manages to surpass his editor's expectations.

Winter 2016 Kopie.jpg

Hey everybody,

after I skipped last seasons's overview (sorry for that, but I was writing like crazy and didn't have time at all to prepare an overview), I'm back now – even if a little late xD – with the first overview for the new year!

The winter season already started and I'm sure some of you already dived into exploring the variety of new Japanese doramas. However, this is for those who might still be undecided or simply interesting in what I might be thinking about the current season. Of course, I'm highly interested in your opinions too so please don't be shy and drop a comment or add something to other people's comments to start discussions. ^^
