I'm surprised notall doesn't have a thread here yet!

Notall (pronounced "notaru", katakana: ノタル) is an idol group consisting of four members, born between 1991 and 1995. They are easy to follow from overseas, because they are very active online. They call themselves social idols, which means that they are produced by fans online. They are also easily approachable online, perhaps in real life events as well.


Now on a personal note, I can say I became a fan of the group within minutes. It was love at first sight. ^^ <3 The catchy songs, the cute and friendly members, everything. The songs come in various styles, my favourites are Pengin Ningen (I happen to love penguins since early childhood!) and Ready Girl. I bought their new mini album on iTunes.


Due to my limited Japanese skills, I can't say I know very much about the group. I haven't quite figured out all the things you can do with them online. Please discuss them here and share your knowledge too. :)

Hotaru no Hikari

18 June 2010 - 02:23 PM

This awesome and funny drama with Haruka Ayase and Naohito Fujiki is getting a second season this summer, so I thought it's about time it had its own thread. :angry: I for one can't wait.

Season 1

Title: ホタルノヒカリ
Title (romaji): Hotaru no Hikari
Title (English): Glow of Fireflies
Genre: Romance, comedy

Hotaru works for a famous interior design company. It's a glamorous job but Hotaru's private life is totally the opposite of glamorous. She lives alone, and when she isn't working she's mostly lazing about her rented house in training wear. She's not interested in men. In fact, she isn't interested in anything. "I'd rather lay around than fool around," is her motto. Her landlord is a bar owner, and one day his son, who has just separated from his wife, comes to inspect the rental property, not knowing that someone is living there. He is shocked at the mess, but not as shocked as Hotaru. He turns out to be her boss, Takano.

Funniest jdrama?

20 May 2008 - 09:45 AM

Since there is already a "saddest jdrama" thread, I think a thread like this should be okay too.

What are the funniest jdrama you have watched? They can be clever or silly, but they've made you laugh a lot.

I can recommend these:

Nodame Cantabile
Mirai Koshi Meguru
Anna-san no Omame

What about you?
