      Really feel bad for all cast in Kuragehime is like they all play for a sacrifice for agency and tv station.
      all of big shot avoide getsu9 like a plague so they have to emergency sacrifice any kid that willing to get damage
      and this time it really hard one.

      next time hope masami can really make something out of this.

      and even more sad wiht anone great writer great support cast but this what you get when you push some kid toooo hard
      people really get fed up with for me i just cant really look at suzu face.

        still on rumor stage: getsu9 summer 2018 – Yamazaki Kento
        last season getsu9 lead is Shinohara Ryoko though
        Fuji TV only rushed through this season bec the planned sequel to Fragile was postponed bec of Takei Emi’s pregnancy

        • CyDo

          there has been a talk/discussion abt the abolishment of getsu9, and Shinohara’s Minshuu no Teki kinda sealed it tbh. Previously, Code Blue etc did well, but iT was more like exception if we see the trend. I don’t think they will abolish it, but put less money on it…

          but seeing it with another perspective, sooner or later, many actors/actress might be willing to take the role.. since they won’t be blamd for the low ratings after the consecutive poor results…

          • Reileen

            it was rumored that there were plans for a getsu9 Kimura Takuya drama, but he chose the TV Asahi BG drama instead. I don’t know how much of that is true but KImura’s dramas only usually revolve around getsu9,TBS Sun and TV Asahi Thurs dramas. So it’s to be seen if he’ll come back to the getsu9 timeslot next.

          • chocoapples

            It’s kinda sad because I really like Minshuu no Teki. Final episode getting only 4%-ish rating is devastating to me.

        • katsura

          I thought after what happened to Sukina Hito ga Iru Koto, it would’ve scared off Yamaken from taking on another getsu9 lol. Back so soon boy…

        • liuuu

          Fuji TV better get Yamapi or Kimutaku back soon if they still want promising good ratings or maybe Gakky for actress.

          Yamazaki Kento is so-so. I feel bad for him if he get the blames for bad ratings again.

        Situation with Kuragehime isn`t that bad. I wonder what excatly the reason behind low ratings and cancelation of Life as a girl. Is it because of LGBT theme or consecutively low ratings of NHK`s Drama10 slot (or a little bit of both?).
        And Anone`s writing is very meh to me. Some scenes are so ridiculous, it`s like the writer did it on purpose.

        • pondloso

          “writer did it on purpose” when you said it really make sense lol.

        • Male:ko

          “cancelation of Life as a girl”
          WTH!!! Nooo I watched the first episode and I like it :(

        • eplizo

          I don’t think Life as a Girl was cancelled was it? I thought it was always slated to just have 4 episodes….

          That was too short for me anyway lol

    • eplizo

      How high do NTV ratings typically get? I’m wondering because of Todome no Kissu. I fucking love it, idc what anyone says!

      • Reileen

        not too high but TnK is still doing bad in comparison
        it got the worst 1st ep ratings for the timeslot, and it looked even bad bec it came right after ItteQ SP with with a rating of 19%
        so it looked like it did not manage to make a lot of people stay to watch

        • eplizo

          A shame. It’s surprising when you consider the cast, but considering the plot, it’s a bit less so. Still love it tho! lol.


          • chocoapples

            Maybe I’m one of the people who can’t continue watching TnK because even though I love the casts… the storyline is “wtf??” for me and tbh I’m beyond sick of seeing Yamazaki Kento play in a romance story (I WAS FREAKING STOLEN WHEN HE WAS IN RIKUOH SO WHY ANOTHER ROMANCE???? WHY???? WHY???????????)

    • yamakita

      I honestly have a hard time following Anone. I feel the great Tanaka is wasted in this drama.

    • REMISU

      Is final cut and/or momikeshite fuyu good?

      I’ve been enjoying 99.9 & unnatural! (Although they do have some similarities)

    • yurisakura

      So many winter dramas i wanna watch but no subs yet 😭

      Final Cut’s consistent 6.5% is pretty cool lmao
