TOP 5 JAPANESE DRAMAS

Drama’s can be one of the most fun ways to practice your Japanese listening ability, gain new vocab, and understand Japanese language used in every-day situations. For those reasons and more, I present to you my personal top 5 Japanese Dramas. (more to come!)

5.電車男 [Densha Otoko] (Train Man)

Episodes: 11

So we start with one of the most popular Drama’s of all time in Japan. Densha Otoko (“Train Man”) tells the story of an Otaku who gets to know a beautiful woman on a train after attempting to rescue her from an attack. He posts about this relationship on a Japanese message board, and the drama centers around the advice he recieves from board users.

This drama is amazing and you will love it regardless of your interests. It’s wacky, cheesey, hillarious, but also sincere and there are some tear-jerking moments. Most of all, it shows human emotion in a lovely way. I have to warn you though, it’s a rollercoaster ride (train ride?) - your emotions will be up and down with each episode!

Opening Sequence:


4. 結婚できない男 [Kekkon Dekinai Otoko] (The Man Who Can’t Marry)

Episodes: 12

Next we have a drama with another male protagonist, a 40-year old architect who can’t marry. Or rather, he doesn’t want to. The drama revolves around this man who prefers to be alone but is forced to make friendships and relationships with people around him.

I love Natsukawa Yui who plays the love interest in this drama, and the relationship her and Kuwano (main guy) develop.

This drama is really heartwarming and addictive, definitely worth a watch.

Opening Sequence:

3. 私が恋愛できない理由 [Watashi Ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu] (The Reason I Can’t Find My Love)

Episodes: 12
Wiki: Link

This is a different drama to the previous two, in that it revolves around 3 women. However, similarly they cannot find love. This is supposedly a common problem in Japanese society in general and is the topic of many recent dramas.

The three main characters all have their own individual personality and great storylines for all of them. They all end up living together and sharing their woes of finding love. The friendship they develop among each other is great to see. This is a newer drama than the others, so it’s a lot more modern and fashionable.

Opening Sequence:


2. 結婚しない [Kekkon Shinai] (I won’t Marry/Wonderful Single Life)

Episodes: 11

Another drama centering around being unable to find love, but I just loved this drama. The three main actors are great, I especially love Amami Yuki as an actress (also appears in BOSS, a good drama), and Kanno Miho (main actress) is super cute.

The cinematography of this drama is great; it’s really bright and colourful and only screened last year so it’s modern. It’s also hillarious and has a great storyline with a good solid ending. Absolutely worth watching!

Opening Theme:


1. TOKYOエアポート[TOKYO EAPO-TO] (TOKYO AIRPORT)

Episodes: 10
Wiki: Link


Finally, my most favourite drama so far. This takes a different vein to the other drama’s as it isn’t based on a love story but on the difficulties faced working as a newbie in the Tokyo Airport control tower.

I knew nothing about aeroplanes, airports or control towers or had any interest in them, but this is so beautifully filmed and well acted that I was actually really interested in it. This drama was screened this year and so is really modern and great quality.

This drama can be serious at points and gets especially tense near the end of the episodes, but this just makes it more exciting! Otherwise, it’s lighthearted and really really funny. It also makes a change from the standard J-Drama archetype of schools/love stories.

Where can I download and watch J-Dramas?

I’ll do a detailed post on the many ways you can do this later, but for now your bet is to visit D-Addicts forum for the Video and Subtitle files. You can pretty much find every drama ever on here, in a variety of languages!
